Conjure everything you know about Baltimore (camp, mediocre dining and The Wire) and throw it out the window. Baltimore is burgeoning as a luxury destination, thanks to the new Four Seasons Baltimore, which is spurring a new kind of scene for affluent travelers.

While the 256-room Four Seasons officially opened in February 2012, it finally rolled out all of its amenities last week, including the Splash Terrace, which includes a heated, 121-foot infinity pool, a wrap-around deck and the Splash Pool Bar & Grill.

But it won’t be the last time you hear of Papua New Guinea and, soon enough, it will be making headlines of its own.
