We genuinely cannot say enough good things about the 1840's Plaza venue, and the amazing staff that runs it!! The venue itself is amazing and pretty much speaks for itself. The plaza is a historical Baltimore landmark and has so much natural beauty and character. The Hilton Fairfield is right next door and available for room blocks, making transportation not necessary, which we loved! The Carrollton Inn is attached to the Plaza, where we had our immediate family members stay for an extra special experience. The rooms are very luxurious and unlike anywhere else in the city, as it is furnished with vintage furniture and beautiful architecture. We got married in the large courtyard with its luscious greenery, held our cocktail hour in the charming upper courtyard, and our reception took place in the gorgeous ballroom. It was everything that we could have ever imagined and more. The staff members are incredible. Stasia and Kelsey were always so accommodating to our needs and readily available to contact via email or phone instantly. We added an extra hr 1 mon before! We had an internationally wedding and coordinating rooms and guest accommodations was made very easy thanks to these individuals. They were able to get us in touch with the Fairfiled Inn for our room block when we were initially having difficulty. We had a little bit of a rowdy crowd in that everyone was very excitable and on vacation and the Plaza staff provided the most amazing service without a single complaint. On the day of our wedding, it began to rain during the ceremony hour. The staff knew how important it was for me to get married outside and when it started to rain they began to set up the backup option on the second floor. However, when the rain looked like it was going to slow down to a stop, they quickly air dried and toweled the outside area and changed it back knowing how important it was to us. We can't say enough good things about this venue and their staff. They made our day so special!!

We hosted my daughter's wedding cocktail hour and wedding reception at 1840s Plaza and had a wonderful experience. I simply can't say enough good things about the event staff. They were attentive, well organized, and anticipated our every need. The venue was perfect for our 135 guests and the rain plan for the cocktail hour went off like a charm. The ballroom is spacious, with a good sized dance floor and the decor is neutral enough to go with any color palette. The bride and groom spent the weekend in the bridal suite at the Carrolton Inn and it was lovely. They raved about the service and the quality of the accommodations. I highly recommend this venue.
