This is the closest aea to the hotel. You can either turn left on Greenspring Road, right on Timonium Road, and right on Aylesbury or York Roads, OR turn right on Greenspring Road, left on Business Park Drive, and left on Aylesbury Road.

This area is just south of the hotel. Turn right on Greenspring Road, left on Business Park Drive, right on Aylesbury Road, then either right at the Lutherville Station sign or at York Road

Fairgrounds – South End

From the hotel, turn left on Greenspring Road, right on Timonium Road, and left on York Road. The left (west) side of York Road will be the Maryland State Fairgrounds, restaurants and other stuff are mostly on the right (east) side.

Fairgrounds – North End

If you turn left on York Road and head past the fairgrounds, you’ll come to this area. It’s a 5-10 minute drive, depending on how many of the lights on Timonium and York Roads you miss.

Padonia and Deerco Road

If you turn left out of the hotel onto Greenspring Avenue and take it across Timonium Road, it becomes Deerco Road. You’ll find yourself in an industrial/office park area, but in a few minutes you will come upon a group of hotels and restaurants at or near the intersection of Deerco Road and Padonia Road.
