This place is underrated- please give it chance I was very pleased with my day and the whole planning experience!!! Kim Grant (Catering Manager) was amazing and she worked so well with my Wedding Planner (BOP Events- Tiffanie), every step of the way was smooth. I can name more Deanne was great, my wait staff AWESOME, Bartenders GREAT. Bridal Suite perfect. I cannot express how I felt like part of the Hilton family this experience has placed some amazing folks in my life and for that I am grateful.Sent on 01/06/2017

There is so much to say where to begin.... I would like to start by saying EVERYONE at The Colonnade is AMAZING! And I would know! I worked closley with just about everyone from the Valet, Concierge, Restaurant Staff, Front Desk, Banquets Dept., and Sales Dept. over the roughly 3 month period I planned/coordinated my clients wedding. It was my first time in a long time hosting a wedding at a hotel, and I will say it overwhelming exceeded my expectations! The facilities are immaculate, and everytime I visited the venue was being maintained in some way. This is a big deal!! TRUST ME!! I do many weddings a year with my company The Luxe Event and so many venues that could be beautiful are just left in disrepair. This is not the case at the Colonnade, everything is just beautiful. Kim is a treasure! It was such a pleasure working with her. On the day of the wedding she was everywhere I needed her to be right when I needed her to be there, and once more before I even asked! Kim truly went out of her way to ensure my clients had the perfect wedding day! I can't thank her enough for all she did! Other well deserved shout outs, the banquets staff are ALL rock stars! Special thanks to Aaron who is phenomenal, plain and simple what can't he do & Michelle who is absolutely amazing!!! Again EVERYONE at the Colonnade was great and the answer was always "YES" what more can you ask for! Thank You So Much for All you did and continue to do!Sent on 08/27/2016

The staff at the Colonnade assisted us in planning and implementing a fantastic rehearsal dinner (Atrium Room) and an amazing reception (at the Scottish Rite). The staff was professional, flexible, and understood our vision for the event. They helped us make our wedding day dream a reality.Sent on 11/02/2014
Beyond the events, we also wanted to praise the front desk staff of the hotel. My family stayed for five nights and raved about the professionalism and kindness showed to them. Additionally, we needed to switch our room at the last minute and Sam (front desk) was friendly, accommodating, and so very sweet. The morning after the wedding, Sam greeted us with an enthusiastic "good morning Mr. & Mrs. Manson". We honestly felt as though she had become part of our family with the way she treated us!
We look forward to recommending this hotel to our out of town friends and family, and perhaps staying a night on our anniversary!

Ciara · Married on 10/26/2013
We were so delighted with everything Rebecca, Ricardo, and the staff at the Inn at the Colonnade did for us for our wedding. We could not have asked for a more wonderful day! Rebecca worked with us every step of the way and truly helped our vision come to life! She was organized, professional, and very caring about our needs. The Colonnade has a great space to work with and has several reception halls to choose from. We chose to do our reception in the lobby and everything turned out beautifully – the elegant wallpaper, marble floors, and the skylight dome served as a wonderful backdrop for the occasion. We left detailed instructions for how to decorate the space and we were so happy with how lovely and cohesive the room looked on our wedding day. Ricardo was very flexible and able to customize the food and drink options to fit our budget and guest size. The food was amazing and we had many compliments from our guests about how wonderful everything tasted! Overall, we highly recommend the Inn at the Colonnade for weddings and other special occasions!Sent on 12/10/2013

Crystal · Married on 09/22/2013
We were so amazed with how well everything came together for our wedding September 22, 2013. Rebecca, Ricardo, Terell and the rest of the staff was perfect. Rebecca was very professional throughout the entire process and was able to provide great recommendations to make my dream come true. The day of the wedding I provided a detailed timeline of all the events of the day and she made everything seamless. Throughout the numerous conference calls/emails everything went perfect!! All the guests said it was the best wedding ever and the venue was absolutely beautiful. We got married and had our cocktail hour in the courtyard and our reception was in the Atrium. The chandelier is absolutely breathtaking and really helped make my theme of an intimate and elegant day a reality. Ricardo was also excellent with helping us pick our appetizers and entrees and making sure my Husband had his beer on hand during the reception. Speaking of food, everything was delicious!! Terrell at the front desk was always so pleasant to work with and he helped us as well as our guest with all reservations. I know they say no wedding is perfect but I can honestly say I had a perfect day thanks to everyone at the Inn at the Colonnade! I would highly recommend this venue to any bride that wants a fuss free and perfect day and the piece of mind knowing you have a staff that is kind, friendly, patient and very professional.Sent on 12/30/2013

Meghan · Married on 07/18/2009
Amazing venue!!! We wanted the convenience of a hotel for out of town guests, but with something unique. The Colonnade came through!! We had a cocktail hour on their courtyard, and a reception in their tent. It had the intimate feel of a tented reception, but was attached to a hotel. Amy O'Connell was so helpful and willing to work with us. I loved this locale for a reception it was everything I dreamed of!!!!Sent on 07/26/2009

Ebony · Married on 07/18/2015
The staff at the Colonnade were extremely professional, courteous, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Just about each person I interacted with was willing and able to assist me from David and Christian at the front door, to David (a different one) who attended the bridal prep room, to the facilities/food/ beverage manager whose name I always forget but stayed until after 11pm to everyone that my guests encountered. DeAnn and Kim fielded my hundreds of emails and thousands (ok maybe only hundreds, :) ) of questions with grace and patience. I did ask some questions multiple times as there are a lot of details in planning a wedding. I appreciated their use of their experience to assist me in my choices. I really couldn't have done this without them. I was extremely pleased.Sent on 07/28/2015
Janna · event on 12/10/2011
The venue was beautiful and very accommodating. They were willing to work within our budget to design a customized menu for our guests. The decorations were wonderful, and everything went according to plan. My only wish was that the venue had been a bit better prepared with the beverages. We ran out of popular wine choices half way through the evening. Otherwise though, everything was wonderful and everybody had a great time!Sent on 05/29/2012

Shauna · Married on 06/13/2014
I had a lot of hiccups in working with the Colonnade leading up to my wedding... a lot. They charged huge amounts of money to the wrong credit card. Sometimes I had to ask a few times for a response to things. Contracts were sent over wrong. I got to the hotel the day before my wedding a little bit nervous about how they would handle this.Sent on 06/23/2014
And they handled it so well that it overwrote all of my frustrations leading up to the wedding.
After playing musical coordinators for a while, I ended up working with Rebecca. She was always friendly, knowledgeable, and genuinely cared about how things went. It said something to me that, as we left the altar after the wedding, she gave me a big hug with tears in her eyes. It was so sweet and unexpected.
Had we been with Rebecca throughout the process (she started well after we were working on our event) I think I would have had much less frustrations leading up. Nonetheless, the day of was so perfect and everyone was so nice and accommodating that it made all of the frustrations worth it! Our event was beautiful, the food was incredible, and the staff at the hotel was awesome. For the price (which was much more reasonable than other Baltimore hotels), it really was quite a bargain.

Inn of the Colonnade is such a beautiful unique place. We had our reception held there and having there was great! What brought our attenion the most to have it there was the dome painted as the sky! Amazing so gave in and said YES! Our first wedding specialist was okay and had a preserved and maybe shy personality. Once she left , we met a nice lady name Rebbecca Serrano who took over. She is such a sweet heart. She was very engaging, extremely nice, professional responsive, open minded, helpful, and kept on top of everything. We share to her our vision and she pulled it through. At the wedding reception we had a ball. The food was great, drinks, servers was on top of their game. Bell man and Vale parkung people carried such an great attitude. The Hospitality manger Ricardo start off as being nice and very helpful but on the day of our wedding, not so. We were a little disappointed of how he act. A few guests ( relaitives) mention about his attitude including I as well experienced had a problem with him. Not only that a few things or minor things happen at the reception so I share the following to Steve the building manager. Once everything was shared, Ricardo respectively apologize and the buidling manager gave us another a night of stay. I am looking forward for that and thank them as well. We enjoy our stay and and would to thank Rebecca and the rest of the staff for making our day. Thank you Inn of the Colonnade.Sent on 11/07/2013

We only used the hotel for our block of rooms, NOT for the reception. It is in a beautiful setting by the Hopkins undergrad campus. Rebecca (mentioned in other reviews) was our main contact person and was pleasant during our interactions and responded quickly to emails. However, we found we had to initiate all conversations - like close to the deadline she didn't let us know that our block was filled. It was a busy weekend in Baltimore, and we ended up needing more rooms well in advance of the date, but these could not be provided to us. I just felt like we had to nag her a lot to make sure things were going as planned. We had arranged for an after party at the bar, but when our guests arrived at the time we had arranged with Rebecca, the bar staff insisted that we were supposed to have arrived an hour earlier. The concierge was very pleasant in direct conversations, but a number of our guests didn't receive their welcome bag until we told them to ask for it. For our guests with kids, the pool was closed for construction on Memorial day weekend.Sent on 06/24/2014
Inn at the Colonnade a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel's reply:I am truly sorry you felt you had to nag and that your all of your guests did not receive a bag. Bringing things to our attention will only make us grow as a hotel and i appreciate your review! If there is anything you need, please feel free to contact the Colonnade and we will take care of you!
