  • Because of Covid, our destination wedding was cancelled and we were in a time crunch to find a new venue so we could still get married in our wedding date. Audrey helped us make the day absolutely perfect at 16 Bay View, where we had both the ceremony and reception. It was so beautiful, I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Audrey, all of the bartenders and waitresses and the chef turned it out with their service and kindness. I couldn’t recommend this place enough.

    Congratulations to you and Travis!! I am so sorry that your destination wedding was cancelled but very glad that you were still able to celebrate with close friends and family :) Everyone was happy, having fun, and made me and our staff feel SO appreciated. I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!!

  • We cannot say enough great things about 16 Bay View and all the help Audrey gave us in planning our special day along the way! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous; we had our reception at The View, and the views were absolutely breathtaking. The chef also worked with us to form our perfect menu for the day based on what we wanted! The food was a HUGE highlight of the day, and it also felt very personal to us as a couple since there were several of our favorite dishes. Finally, I CANNOT say enough great things about how wonderful Audrey and the rest of their team was to work with! We got married in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Audrey kept me looped in and reassured throughout, working with us to make sure we could still safely celebrate our day. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, and we were so unbelievably happy with how everything turned out! For a smaller wedding in Camden, there is no place better than The View.

  • The View is a rooftop bar/restaurant at the Bayview hotel, overlooking beautiful Camden harbor. We were very pleased with every aspect of this venue, from working with Audrey, the event coordinator, to the food and service. The Bayview is also a very fine hotel for guests to stay, and Camden has so much to offer, our 3 day weekend was not enough time to enjoy it all! This was a difficult year for wedding planning, and we were so appreciative of Audrey’s professionalism and responsiveness through it all.

    Brigitte, Thank you for the kind words! This wedding reception was truly awesome to be a part of. You and your guests were so welcoming and fun to be around. I am so glad everyone had a great time - what a perfect day we had! Best wishes and a lifetime of love & happiness to Lauren & John

  • Rain or shine or mist, Camden harbor is a lovely background, and 16 Bayview's rooftop bar is chic and spacious, but my daughter's bridal shower would not have been the smashing success it was without Samara Oliver and her colleagues on the hotel staff. Kind, enthusiastic and resourceful, Samara worked closely with me to maximize elegance and minimize expense-- and to keep the whole thing top-secret until the bride walked out of the elevator and we all cried, "Surprise!" Everyone raved about the food: Dainty lobster rolls, skewers of mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes, individual blueberry crumbles with cream and fresh (edible) flowers. From top to bottom, beginning to end, this was one of the nicest and easiest events I've ever hosted. I can't wait to find another excuse for a private party at 16 Bayview!

    Dear Meghan, It was such a pleasure to meet you and help plan your daughters surprise bridal shower. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback and experience. I wish you all the best and hope the wedding this winter is perfect! Best, Samara Oliver Group Sales & Events Manager

  • We had an incredible experience having our wedding at 16 Bay View on "The View" roofdeck. From the moment we saw the hotel to the day itself, we enjoyed it all. It was the perfect locale... and view of Camden Harbor in the summer! Working with Samara (wedding/event planner) was easy and really fun, and she was so helpful in making our day what we wanted it to be, as well as providing great recommendations about the Camden area and local vendors. We had delicious food and drink and working with Chef Andrea and Bartender Marcus; we were able to have great variety and flavors that all of our guests enjoyed. The staff at 16 BV is the best and makes the stay there so comfortable and welcoming. I look forward to visits in the future!

    Dear Brian, It was SO much fun to work with you both during the many months leading up to your big day. I am so happy that everything turned out how you wanted it to be. I will remember your wedding forever. Please come back and visit us soon! Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Best, Samara Oliver Group Sales & Events Manager

  • There are not enough words to describe how great and accommodating 16 Bay View was for our wedding reception and lodging experience. We had catering plans fall through at the last minute and they were able to cater our entire event in less than a weeks notice. Not only were they able to do that, but since we are from out of town, they even helped us find the most perfect officiate for our wedding ceremony. Samara, the Group Sales & Events Manager, was so thoughtful and helped plan a heart felt surprise for my best friend's birthday, who was a guest at their hotel. She definitely went above and beyond to make sure my special day was flawless. Everyone from the Front Desk attendants to the General Manager felt like our family by the time we left.

    Dear Kimberley, I am so happy everything worked out as beautifully as it did. We enjoyed catering your event and hosting your guests. I am so happy your enjoyed the day as much as we did. You are a beautiful bride! Thank you for your very kind words and taking the time to share our experience. We wish you a life long marriage and happiness! Come back and visit soon. Best, Samara Oliver Group Sales & Events Manager

  • This place is AMAZING!! We have stayed here 4 times this year since 16 Bay View was hosting our wedding reception. The staff always goes above and beyond, they are so friendly and always greet you with a smile. The rooms and views are gorgeous. Finally if you want to hold an event here work with Samara she made our Wedding day a dream come true. Nothing but wonderful things to say about this gem of a hotel and having a wedding here.

  • Has rehearsal dinner with appetizers and drinks on the roof. Appetizers were great. It was raining and they put up a huge tent with heaters and lighting. We did not even realize it was raining. The view was amazing. Went downstairs to a room with a lot of windows for dinner. Wish there would have been more courses. Dessert could have been better. Went back up to roof for drinks. Wonderful way to end evening.

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Lynnette, It was a great pleasure working with you along with your son and his (then) fiance for planning such a momentous occasion. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the rehearsal dinner at our venue. I know that the rain swept in last minute which was a bit of a bummer but we had a great back up plan after conferring with the Bride and Groom. Everyone seemed to enjoy the event, particularly the couple. The change of breaking up the event and enjoying cocktails and appetizers on The View and then a seated dinner in one of our event spaces indoors was the way we were able defeat the rain. We are very fortunate to have such an exceptional head chef whom is able to create a specific menu of the preferences and desires that couple has. Every menu is chosen specifically by the couple/clients with a tasting and then put together for the event exactly to how the couple requested it to be. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed ending the evening back up on The View. I wish you and the lovely couple the best. Warmly. Samara Oliver Group Sales & Events Manager
