    Loved our reception here!

    We absolutely loved the Royal Sonesta. Jay is the best to work with -- we immediately were confident in his skills and experience from our first meeting with him. Every single hotel staff person we encountered through planning and throughout the entire wedding weekend was incredibly friendly and accommodating to anything we or our guests needed. Certain parts of the hotel (ie. bathrooms in rooms) are dated, however everything that really matters that you see (hotel lobby, other parts of the rooms, ballrooms, etc.) are beautiful. The view of the inner harbor is great from the ballroom, even better from the guest rooms on higher floors, and our guests enjoyed the time there. Jay will offer as much or as little advice as you want, and we were very pleased with all of his recommendations.

    Beautiful Venue, Excellent Service

    We had our wedding reception at Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore on December 1, 2018. It was the most perfect venue for us. Jay Day, the hotel coordinator, assisted us with planning majority of the details for our wedding day. Jay worked diligently to make sure we were happy with every little detail of our day. Jay was professional and kind through our wedding planning process--we asked a ton of questions and he was happy to respond quickly and address all of our concerns. It allowed my mind to be at ease with the wedding planning process. The staff at the hotel were fantastic-everyone was kind and friendly through our wedding events. The hotel itself has a small and intimate feel to it which we loved. We had 140 guests at our wedding, half were visiting from out of town. Many guests planned long weekends to see Baltimore so the hotel's proximity to the Inner Harbor / downtown area was great. We highly highly recommend the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore for a wedding--we had an unforgettable and wonderful experience.
