Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore

Wedding and Reception Testimonials


They say the best form of advertising is by word of mouth. At the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore, our weddings, receptions and social events speak for themselves. Take a look at what others are saying about their experiences at our Inner Harbor hotel:

I can think of no better venue that perfectly captures the sometimes hidden elegance of classic Baltimore. From the grand staircase to the scenes of old Maryland that line the walls with countless pieces of exquisite artwork, the Harbor Court hotel is one of the crown jewels of the Inner Harbor. It has ceremony & reception spaces that give incomparable views of the Harbor itself, especially for an evening wedding like ours. But the beauty of the space is easily trumped by the skill and care exhibited by the hotel staff. Their support, knowledge, and ability to respond to both our needs and the needs of our guests was unparalleled. And where do I even begin about the catering? The quality of the food was beyond words. The Sonesta truly made our biggest day one for the ages.


The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Hotel in Baltimore Maryland helped me to make my brunch wedding fabulous. The hotel was accommodating in every way I needed them to be. They upgraded the hotel rooms for me and my husband, his mom and my parents to harbor view room. The ceremony and reception went smoothly.


So…any brides reading this..GO SEE THIS VENUE!!..It’s a must SEE..Sometimes words are just not enough…it overlooks the water..which was stunning for pictures…the staff was amazing...I felt like a queen the entire weekend…this venue truly takes pride in making a bride feel's the little things that I will cherish for years to come.


One of the best decisions that we made was booking the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Hotel for our wedding reception. From the moment we first met with Harbor Court, we knew that we wouldn't be disappointed. They were so helpful and responsive throughout the entire process and I did not spend one second worrying on my wedding day that something wouldn't be taken care of. The hotel itself is beautiful and allows for amazing picture opportunities. And the hotel bar is the perfect location to continue the celebration after the reception ends. We had such an amazing experience and I would recommend Harbor Court to any bride looking for the perfect reception site!


Letter from Manuele W. (Mother of the Bride):

Dear Royal Sonesta Harbor Court,

Just a word to thank you and your staff for the marvelous wedding you staged for my daughter Lauren on November 3, 2012. From start to finish, everything was perfect and beyond even our imagination. Your staff was superb in every way and the hotel did a magnificent job for our guests both at the wedding and the following day for breakfast. The food was delicious, the staff attentive and warm, and the accommodations lovely.

Also, my mother lost a gold bracelet of great sentimental value at the reception. She accidentally left it at the table where she had been sitting. When she returned to look for it, the entire table had been cleared, but the bracelet had not been touched and was waiting for her. Quite a tribute to your staff.

Thanks again for a memorable day and event. We will cherish the memories. All our best to the people who make the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court so special.

Letter from Dr. & Mrs. Jacques S. (Parents of the Bride):
As the parents of the bride, we are truly appreciative of the beautiful wedding that the staff at the hotel created for our daughter and son-in-law.  The warm, welcoming atmosphere, the food service, the spectacular appearance of both the ceremony and ballroom, and all the aspects of our event were handled with true expertise and professionalism.
I would like to specifically reference the wonderful ability of your Catering Special Events Manager, Scotlyn Campanella, who made all of our wedding planning so easy and made all of our dreams for this special event a reality.  Scotlyn is a young dynamo who exemplified professionalism and pride in this event in every instance.  She has a talent for attending to detail and is the best phone call returner I have ever encountered!  No question or concern throughout this entire process was too small for Scotlyn's attention.  She left us feeling totally secure that June 23rd would be a huge success, and it certainly was.  Her leadership qualities, her communication skills, her knowledge of the catering business, and perhaps most importantly, her warm personality, made her the perfect person to deal with. You are lucky to have her on your staff.  
I would  wholeheartedly recommend your hotel as a special event venue.  Thank you for creating a beautiful weekend to remember for all of us.
