I always stay at one of the hotels in the BWI district. It’s close to the BW Parkway and Baltimore Beltway if you’re driving and MARC and the light rail if you’re not.

The closer to Hunt Valley is further away from the city. You can take the 83's (there are two of them). I would suggest Owings Mills but I wouldn't want to drive straight down Reisterstown Road to get to Pimlico. I live in Reisterstown. Avoid the city unless you are in the heart of the harbor but it's super expensive there. IMO I would only visit the harbor not stay there.
