Hotels and Housing
We know there may be challenges for finding accommodations for family members who want to be with you during your stay at a hospital. Fortunately, our housing program can help. Here are some points to consider when deciding on the best housing options for your stay.
Considerations When Choosing Accommodations
- 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. Usually these properties do not have hotel amenities, such as daily housekeeping services, in-house restaurants, or concierge services.
- Be sure to clarify the number of guest and rooms that will be required during the entirety of your stay. Some facilities restrict the number of rooms one family can occupy.

Housing for Adult Cancer Patients and Families
The Hackerman-Patz Patient and Family Pavilion is a “home away from home” for adult cancer patients and their families.

Comprised of 29 suites and 10 one-bedroom apartments, the Pavilion offers affordable short- and long-term housing for Kimmel Cancer Center patients and their caregivers, and can accommodate other Johns Hopkins patients when space allows. Outpatients must have a caregiver stay with them, and all guests must be 12 years or older.

Specialized Housing For Children and Families
The Believe in Tomorrow Children’s House at Johns Hopkins is excited to announce that we are beginning efforts to build a brand new, state-of-the-art Children’s House!
Our 1915 McElderry Street location is currently closed, however, we are proud to partner with The Residence Inn-Johns Hopkins Medical Campus to provide accommodations/home away from home to our Believe In Tomorrow families while the new Children’s House is being constructed. The hotel is just 2 blocks away from the hospital (4 min walk). Although the rooms are located at the hotel, families staying are guests of The Children’s House and our staff will handle all aspects of scheduling the stay from referral through checkout.
The Ronald McDonald House just 1 mile from Johns Hopkins Children’s Center has been serving families for more than 40 years in a warm and welcoming environment that feels like “the Ritz meets Disney meets Grandma's house.”
With 55 guest rooms, it accommodates patients age 21 and younger and their families who have traveled more than 30 miles for treatment at the hospital (patients with oncology and shock trauma conditions are exempt from the mileage requirement). There is no charge to stay.
