We understand the challenges of accommodating family members who want to be with you during your stay at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Fortunately, our housing program can help. Here are some points to consider when deciding on the best housing options for your stay in Baltimore.
- Your health insurance provider may cover local housing during your treatment. Check to see whether you have this type of coverage.
- As a Johns Hopkins patient or family member, you have access to reduced rates at many local hotels. Contact Guest Services for more information or see our list of options for short-term housing.
- Consider the special needs of any family members or caretakers who will need housing. If handicapped-accessibility is important, please clarify this when making arrangements.
- Lower-cost housing often involves a waiting list, meaning reservations cannot be confirmed ahead of time. If you are on a waiting list, be sure to have a back-up plan, such as a local hotel reservation. When making hotel reservations, ask about cancellation policies.
- Some properties cannot accommodate children, so be sure to inquire if your party includes a child. You may also consider specific housing options for pediatric patients.
- Some accommodations do not have daily housekeeping services, restaurants, or concierge services, however, these options are typically less expensive than a hotel.
- If you have hired a caregiver to assist you, a separate room may be required. Some facilities restrict the number of rooms one family can occupy. Be sure to clarify your needs with the individual property before your arrival.
