Bee Apiary at Our Inner Harbor Baltimore Hotel
Our Courtyard is home to the busiest employees at The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore. As part of our Land, Air, and Sea environmental sustainability initiatives, our hotel became a steward of 30,000 honeybees in 2011. Currently, the Honeybees are supplied by BeeFriendlyApaiary.com whose mission is to offer a variety of ways to help educate our community about the importance of pollinators.
Although Honeybees can travel up to five miles daily, we have attempted to save them all that flight time with the placement of our 7th-floor rooftop herb garden. Watching our Honeybees at work is best done early in the morning. They need approximately 50 quarts of honey to survive through the long and cold winter months. Any extra honey they produce is harvested and used in the creative recipes of our talented chef.
Be sure to check out the seasonal menu at Explorers for items made with our very own honey, especially our signature honey-based cocktails & meals which are un-BEE-lievable!
Art Collection at Our Inner Harbor Baltimore Hotel
Visit our rotating Art Gallery located on the second floor, curated by local artist Crystal Moll. Her inspiration comes from urban landscapes and is influenced by the street scenes of Baltimore and the farms of Maryland's Eastern Shore.
Aiming to foster an atmosphere of originality, the Sonesta Art Collection consists of more than 7,000 contemporary paintings, sculptures, original prints, and tapestries by both established and emerging artists such as Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Sol Lewitt, Jan Dibbets, Malcolm Morley, and Carl Palazzolo.
The works reflect the artists’ vision while illuminating some of the most significant movements in contemporary art, including Conceptual, Minimal, and Pop Art. The works of art are placed in public spaces at The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore, and in most guest rooms as well. Each work of art is carefully considered to create an aesthetically pleasing and meaningful statement.
Sonesta's Art Collection is recognized as one of the first corporate hotel programs dedicated to original art by nationally and internationally known artists. The collection was initiated in the early 1960s and overseen by Sonesta's former Executive Chairman, Roger P. Sonnabend, and his wife, Joan, an art collector and owner of Obelisk Gallery in Boston. The unique atmosphere that has become a Sonesta trademark is the result of close cooperation between architects, designers, Sonesta's executives and employees, and Joan Sonnabend's vision.

Our Baltimore Wedding Testimonials
"...I cannot recommend this place enough for any bride!"
"The Royal Sonesta and their wedding coordinator; Jay Day did an amazing job making my wedding day perfect! The Royal Sonesta hosts only one wedding (unlike many other hotels), which I especially liked so I didn't have to worry about sharing space with another bride and groom.....We trusted Jay to set up our decorations and centerpieces using his creative skills and they all looked perfect! Thanks to Jay and the staff at The Royal Sonesta, my husband and I got to enjoy every second of our special day without a single worry. I cannot recommend this place enough for any bride!"

"...I cannot say enough wonderful things about the experience.."
"My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the experience. The location was perfect for our out-of-town guests, being within walking distance of the Inner Harbor, and the rooms were luxurious, clean, and comfortable. Also, the staff was kind and helpful to us and all our guests during the entire stay. For our wedding reception, the event was fantastic. The ballroom is beautiful with grand windows overlooking the Inner Harbor, and the food - from appetizers to entrees - was delicious! Our coordinator, Jay Day, was outstanding. From day one, he was timely in all responses, honest, helpful, organized, and a joy to work with. I felt confident throughout the entire planning process knowing that Jay was there making sure the wedding day went as planned. We are so happy we chose The Royal Sonesta as our wedding venue and would recommend it to anyone planning a wedding or other event."

"...The wedding was absolutely perfect."
"While I am not the bride, my daughter and I worked very close together through the entire planning process. From the moment we walked into Harbor Court in January 2015 and met Jay Day I truly hoped that Harbor Court would be our selection. Jay was perfect from start to finish. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and timely in returning emails or calls, helpful in suggestions on menu, decor, and other vendors and I could go on and on. The hotel was under a major update when we toured the hotel. It was exciting to hear Jay describe what to envision for my daughter's wedding on New Year's Eve. We loved the fact that Harbor a Court is a boutique hotel. Understanding that her wedding would be the only event was a huge plus. We used 5 of the banquet rooms throughout the event. While menu concepts were provided, our daughter and son-in-law knew exactly what they wanted and Jay was quick to accommodate. The entire staff was personable and friendly and provided excellent customer service from our 1st day as a potential client to the last day as we left the hotel on New Year's Day. I had to go back in and thank the staff again. They felt like family to me as no matter what the need was for us from December 30th - January 1st they took care of us."
"...memories to last a lifetime."
The wedding was absolutely perfect. Our family and friends raved to us about how great the staff, food, and rooms were. It could not have been better. We thank Jay and his team for memories to last a lifetime. I never read any of the prior reviews until right before I started to write mine. If I had read them last January I would have thought 'wow that is great but is it so?' I can honestly tell you 'it is so!' You will make the best decision to have your daughter's or son's wedding here at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Hotel. You are in great hands with Jay Day! Thanks, Jay!"
