  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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 ... Read more

  • Planning a wedding from out of town, where 50% of the guests were also out of towners can be a challenge, but Jay Day and the Royal Sonesta made our wedding day a magical day we’ll never forget! From the moment we met Jay, he put our minds at ease and helped us take care of all the details. He thought of things we hadn’t and made recommendations that were great. I put my trust in him and his staff and I’m so glad we did. From the beginning conversations about budget, and food to our large band and confetti cannons the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court made it all possible. I would highly recommend to any other bride and groom looking for a beautiful location with a great staff. Remember to request a high floor for the Bridal Suite!

  • " wow - your venue was so classy and elegant, and the food was amazing!" - this is what I heard time and time again after hosting my wedding at the Royal Sonesta. Jay Day is incredible, he will answer your questions,guide you to making good decisions and will actually care about making your day a success. Jay and his entire staff were kind, professional and really made my day go smoothly. Jay will work with you if there is something you want to add, delete or change - he is fair and you never feel like you're being taken advantage of. The hotel rooms are stunning, the ballrooms are incredible,the entire hotel is so clean and impressive! The one thing that I really fell in love with, their ballroom actually has windows that show the harbor! we loved that our guests could have that view while eating their meals. Do yourself a favor and check out this venue!!

    responded with the following comments.

    It was such a pleasure working with you all on the big day! Thank you for giving us the honor of hosting such a wonderful event and please do come back and visit us again in the future!

  • I just had my wedding at the Royal Sonesta this last weekend (3/10/18) and it was by far, the most amazing day of my life. The entire planning process, rehearsal, and night of went off without a hitch and I could not have asked for better people to work with. Our coordinator, Jay Day, made everything so incredibly easy and always had an answer to our questions. He was fun and hilarious and any time I started to feel the stress, he took it all away! I would highly recommend ceremony/cocktail/reception/wedding night or all of the above at the Royal Sonesta. From the beauty, to the service, to the kind and fun wait staff, I can say with 100% confidence that I have zero complaints. We already have friends getting married in the area next year that attended the wedding and are now planning on using the Sonesta as the hotel for their guests to stay night of, we will definitely be back.

  • Having our wedding at the Royal Sonesta was an amazing experience from start to finish. As soon as we toured the venue and met Jay Day, the coordinator, we knew the Royal Sonesta was for us. The location and the venue itself cannot be beat. The views are incredible and the hotel is beautiful and elegant on the inside. The food was delicious (we got so many compliments from our guests) and the service was the best I have ever experienced. Many thanks to Jay who was so helpful throughout the entire process. Believe what you read about him in the reviews - he is absolutely fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable, will answer all of your questions promptly and gives great suggestions. On the day of the wedding (and in the days leading up to it) everything went smoothly. Jay coordinated with all of our vendors, directed the rehearsal and kept us on schedule during the ceremony and reception. It was such a relief not to have to worry about any of the logistics and to just relax and enjoy th... Read more

  • My husband and I couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding. Baltimore wasn't our original choice for our wedding but a Fall wedding in the Inner Harbor wound up being perfect and the Sonesta was a fantastic venue. We used the rooftop for our wedding and it was gorgeous. Our guests loved the experience and the chefs here took our quirky Southern Barbeque/New York Deli idea and made a meal that our families our still talking about. Jay Day was our point of contact throughout the wedding for the hotel and both my husband and considered his vast amount of experience to be an essential reason why our wedding unfolded as perfectly as it did. If you're an engaged couple in Washington DC and worried about the prohibitive price of venues there (like we were) then I'd strongly recommend the Sonesta. We were able to have a fantastic wedding for much cheaper than it would have been in the District and it was so easy for people to make their way up to Baltimore.

  • The only word to describe The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court is PERFECTION. The views, the service, the food and the accommodations were impeccable. The minute we walked into the hotel on the day of our initial visit to the day after the wedding, every detail was flawless. The Royal Sonesta staff, particularly the Director of Catering, Jeremy Day, made the whole process enjoyable and stress-free. He was very responsive to all my questions, he made recommendations that helped me make my decisions easier and his experience in event planning contributed to my relaxed state the day of the wedding. He ensured all the vendors (DJ, Florist, Photographers, Videographer, etc.) were all on the same page and I didn't have to worry about anything other than to enjoy myself. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the quality of the food, wine and services. The beautiful views were the icing on the cake of a night we truly will never forget, thanks to the Royal Sonesta, especially Mr. Day.

  • We used Royal Sonesta for the hotel block and the brunch. Overall, it was a great experience, and we'd definitely do it again. The hotel was convenient, booking and brunch managers were very nice to work with, and we had over 50 rooms booked and 150ish people for brunch that was great! The brunch was set up perfectly, food and room were phenomenal, and the hotel itself was very clean. We did have a few problems. The first was that one couple arrived late on Friday, and their room had been given away. Royal Sonesta did book them another hotel 8 miles away, but did not offer any transportation assistance to get there. These relatives drove from South Carolina for our wedding, and arrived after midnight, only to be turned away that evening - very, very embarrassing. The staff was kind enough to give them a presidential suite the following night, so all worked out okay, but it was terrible news to wake up to on my wedding morning. Secondly, we had tried to put in our room servic... Read more

  • We were extremely happy with the Royal Sonesta at Harbor Court. The venue is beautiful and they made my daughter's wedding day perfect. Jay Day is very easy with whom to work and was very flexible and knowledgeable. If I had another daughter I would use this venue again.

  • - Mr. Jay Day is HANDS DOWN THE BEST asset that this entire hotel has. He is a consummate professional, kind, experienced, possessing grace, flexibility, patience, and a trained eye. I sent him a myriad of emails covering thoughts, questions, concerns, ideas, feedback, and plans over the year-and-a-half of prep that I did for my wedding, and he went above and beyond 100% of the time to assist. Our wedding day was beyond what I could have imagined and I am beyond grateful to Mr. Jay Day and his team for their tireless efforts. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him! He will do a spectacular job with any event, big or small, complex or straight-forward, that you endeavor to host. I cannot speak highly enough of this amazing person. Thank you Jay for your unbelievable talent and patience with us over the past year and for making our wedding spectacular. - Beautiful windows - They kindly offered me 2 nights in one of their beautiful suites as part of the wedding package ...

  • We were amazed by how well the staff at the Royal Sonesta took care of us and other guests in our wedding party. We met in Baltimore but moved away before our wedding; the staff truly made us feel like we were back home again! Our suite was perfect for entertaining guests prior to our big day. Other guests staying in our room block said the rooms made them feel like "royalty." The cafe and restaurant are convenient, and the gym is well-equipped (complete with outdoor tennis and basketball courts, a pool, and a sauna). And it's really tough to beat such a convenient location right on the Inner Harbor; it's also really easy access from the highway or downtown train stations. We hope to be back for our first anniversary!

  • The Royal Sonesta was an elegant backdrop for our celebration! From the wedding, to cocktail hour, and reception everything was well organized and choreographed, so we could relax and enjoy the day. Much attention is paid to detail, even during the hours before the ceremony (not to mention weeks and days before). All of this was coordinated by Jay Day . . . many thanks to him! Décor is elegant, food delicious, food service prompt. All of our guests commented on what a wonderful fun time they had!

  • We had a lot of frustration working with the Royal Sonesta. We chose it because we felt like it was a higher end hotel that was close to our venue and would provide an incredible experience to our out of town guests. Plus, they offered great rewards for having many people book. First, the positives: The hotel is beautiful and the location is hard to beat. The bridal suite was gorgeous and made for excellent pictures. It was very easy for our guests to get where they needed to go, and they enjoyed their rooms. I think they felt like they received the value they paid for. The coordinator we initially worked with couldn't be bothered with us. When I reached out for assistance booking the bridal suite, she simply emailed us the link to book. She never sent us an update on our room block, and when I found out that people couldn't book rooms, I reached out. She replied a week later, stating that our block closed in two days and that there were no other rooms available. Had she communi... Read more
