    PHENOMENAL! From the moment we saw this magnificent building (built in 1906; massive marble staircases, tiffany windows), gorgeous spaces, impeccably maintained furnishings, and met Randie Haber (the most knowledgable, efficient and talented event planner EVER), we knew there could be no other place for our daughter's wedding. We had extremely high expectations, and they were exceeded at every step!

    The event planning and coordination with vendors was terrific, and the day of the event was a wonder to observe and participate in. Another reviewer talked about the staff functioning like a well-oiled machine, and it's true....but more like a private jet engine! Randie, Yim and Dom anticipated and provided EVERYTHING before I even knew we needed it. The bartenders and wait staff were warm, professional and efficient. Randie helped to solve last minute problems (missing groomsmen attire!) with such calm and confidence. The timeline was established and executed with surgical precision. And all the while, Randie, Yim and Dom made sure that the families were lovingly attended to and could enjoy every second of the too-fleeting day. The night was capped off with an after party in the hotel "living room" until 2am. And then the extraordinary team turned the rooms over; set up a gorgeous morning-after brunch, re-purposing the reception flowers in an artistic display on tables and windowsills. They packed up all the left-behinds from the night before for an easy check-out. Nothing was ever a problem. The answer was always "yes" (sometimes before I even thought of the question!)

    And the food was extraordinary. The only wedding "venue" I know of that does not provide a menu to select from, but provided a private meeting with the chef so the bride and groom could discuss their likes and dislikes and the chef could design a custom seasonal menu. And did I mention the linens and chair selection? Unparalleled.

    You and your guests will be impressed!

    My family and I worked with Nelle Somerville to plan my October 5th wedding at the Hotel Monaco, which turned out even better than I could have ever imagined. The brand new Paris ballroom looked phenomenal and Nelle had her team set up everything exactly the way we had asked. Everything was picture perfect from our guestbook table to the late night popcorn and pretzel snacks that were escorted out on a cart by the Oriole bird. Nelle was patient, clever, creative, patient, prepared, funny, and PATIENT with me and my family who traveled back and forth from New York throughout the year, to plan the wedding. She was always responsive to emails, phone calls, and unscheduled visits from us!! The rest of the staff was amazing too, especially Dominic, who ran out to the closest pharmacy to get me benadryl for an allergic reaction I randomly had (after the reception was over!)

    The staff was so welcoming and accommodating from the valet parkers to the chefs. Our guests raved about the food and all of the entrees were just as delicious as they had been during our tasting.

    Words can't describe how amazing the Hotel Monaco is for a wedding celebration. My guests were so happy to stay at the hotel and be able to go up to their room once the reception was over and late-night partying at the B&O Brasserie downstairs ended.

    Thank you so much to everyone who made our wedding night so perfect and unforgettable!!!

    We got so many compliments and loved it all!

    The B&O provided a marvelous buffet for our wedding at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Baltimore. We got to meet the chef, who is approachable, has a versatile style, and had plenty of ideas for how to make our vision come to life.
    For our brunch wedding, we wanted comfort food that reflected our cultural backgrounds, so we asked for Chicken and Waffles, Beef Ragu, Shrimp and Grits, and Mediterranean displays that featured old favorites like Basbousa, foul, hummus, and more.
    When we checked in with our guests, all of them said it was some of the best food they'd ever had, and were delighted to go back to try the other dishes. My new mother in law even asked the chef for his recipe!

    Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore's reply:

    Dear Olivia and Nick
    Thank you so much for your kind words, we are delighted your guests loved the food so much. Creating a custom brunch wedding really paid off and it was a true labor of love working with you both !
    On behalf of the entire staff thank you for choosing Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore for your most special day . It was a pleasure hosting your wedding
