I know, talk about last minute, but my son (5 years on Tuesday) and I are going to Baltimore to see Dr. Francomano next week, his appointment is Dec 3. I need to book a hotel and not sure if we should schedule to stay a day or two longer just in case she wants to have him seen by another Dr. (Does she do that?) AND which hotel to use that is CHEAP, but not cheap (scummy). I will not be renting a car, so what’s the best way to do this?
Are you going to GBMC? I know that families can stay for a small fee at the Ronald McDonald House http://www.rmhcbaltimore.org/about-our-house/staying-at-the-house-faqs/. Also the closest hotel to GBMC would those on Charles street or in the towson area. http://www.roadsideamerica.com/hotels_motels/poi/65259.html Stay away from the Inner Harbor as this would be expensive. If you have any questions let me know. Does your son have EDS?
We changed the date because I just couldn’t get $1000 for each ticket to get there. We are now going on Jan 15, got the flight taken care of already.
The RMH says on their site that it is for kids with at least 3 appointments in a week, so didn’t think that was an option. I did find out that there is a site called Joeshouse.org that will give discounts on lodging. It states for cancer patients but I emailed them and they will help with most illnesses.
