    Great Venue!

    We chose the Royal Sonesta for our room block and Wedding reception. Jenny was our coordinator and she was a true gem! All of the staff we interacted with were truly so professional and it felt like they honestly wanted the best for our special day. The ballroom and meals were perfect and our friends and family had a blast! 10/10 recommend!

    Best day ever

    My husband and I were down between this hotel and another in the Baltimore area and we are ultimately so glad we chose the Sonesta, and specifically their coordinator Jay. Everything was so organized and efficient from start to finish, and all our needs were not only met but anticipated in advance. We just had our event and it went perfectly, wouldn't have changed a thing!

    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.
