We had an amazing experience at this venue. They were able to accommodate us in many different ways with their flexibility. The courtyard was beautiful. My husband and I had booked a room for our wedding night and they ending up upgrading us (breakfast was great too!). Stacia was a gem- so great to work with. It is an amazing place for pictures, and very seamless. I would definitely have my wedding here if I were to do it all over again!

The moment I visited this venue I fell in love with it! Our wedding ceremony was held in the gorgeous lower courtyard of 1840s and the reception was held in the Ballroom on the 4th floor. The venue and staff are amazing! Stasia is the best coordinator, she was professional and on top of her game! I received so many complaints about the 1840s Plaza from many guests who stated it was a beautiful venue. We were so happy with everything, THANK YOU so much for making our wedding great :)

We found the perfect venue for our wedding reception at 1840's. We had the cocktail hour on the ground floor and dinner and dancing in City Lites. The staff was wonderful to work with. We enjoyed working with the staff at 1840's. We are Baltimore natives so City Lites was just a wonderful room for the reception and our guests (natives and non-Baltimore natives) loved it too!

The 1840"a was an awesome place to hold our wedding and reception! From the moment we arrived everything was simply perfect. The staff was there for our every need, they kept checking in with us to see if we needed anything and if we did it was taken care of right away. We also stayed in the Inn along with our entire bridal party. The service that was provided to us and all of our guest was above and beyond what we expected! I would highly recommend the 1840"s to anyone looking for a great venue for your event.

Sincerely,
Sharon

We used the City Lites room and it was amazing! All of our pictures look great because the back drop was so beautiful. Stasia and the rest of the team were awesome every step of the way. Devin was incredibly helpful and so polite when we were setting up. I do think it would be nice if the Carrollton Inn would give guests a discounted rate after a certain number of rooms are booked but, otherwise, the value for the actual venue is reasonable considering location and convenience.

My only complaint is that we chose to have the valet not accept tips from the guests and that we would tip them based on a per car charge (this is an option on the contract) but I found out when I went to pay the valet at the end of the night that they were accepting tips all night. I'm not sure where the miscommunication was but, overall, not a huge deal.

1840s Plaza responded with the following comments:

We appreciate all feedback both positive and negative as we strive to create the perfect wedding day for our couples. We always take the sound advice from our clients to make appropriate changes in order to make our operation as smooth as possible. In the contract there is not an option in regards to valet gratuity, this is to be discussed between the client and the 1840s Plaza Director of Operation prior to the wedding day so that we may handle the valet gratuity at the request of our clients. We do apologize that this was miscommunicated to you and that you wanted to handle the gratuity differently. At the 1840s Carrollton Inn we offer the wedding couple 20% off a room or suite of their choice as well as 10% off each room thereafter (at a minimum of 4 rooms total).

We fell in love with the 1840's Plaza the moment we walked in! We figured out our wedding size, and have a few options of venue that could hold a wedding our size, and as it happened, 1840's was the first place we looked at on a day of touring venues. Once we got to the City Lites level, we were totally sold. We wanted something a little more unique that a big rectangular ballroom, and this venue was perfect for our needs. At that point all of the other venues we toured, though lovely, just couldn't compare. All aspects of planning were a breeze with Stasia and Dianna, and when possible, the team was totally flexible! As it turned out, we had our ceremony in the courtyard, cocktail hour in the Cabaret, and reception in the City Lites. We had a cocktail reception, so we didn't have to worry about seating for everyone, so City Lites was the perfect fit for the reception of our dreams. We didn't have any significant problems to speak of, and we're happy to sing the praises of a fabulous venue!

Absolutely AMAZING!! We are so happy to have chosen this venue over any other that we looked at in the Downtown/Inner Harbor area! The City Lites room is the most eclectic and fun room! There is really no need to decorate much as it has character all in itself. The Staff was amazing from the very beginning - Stasia and Dianna were such a pleasure to work with and always made you feel as though you did not have to worry about anything - it was taken care of, and it was!! Thank you ALL for your everything - you made our wedding go off without a hitch and everyone loved the location and venue!

Absolutely AMAZING!! We are so happy to have chosen this venue over any other that we looked at in the Downtown/Inner Harbor area! The City Lites room is the most eclectic and fun room! There is really no need to decorate much as it has character all in itself. The Staff was amazing from the very beginning - Stasia and Dianna were such a pleasure to work with and always made you feel as though you did not have to worry about anything - it was taken care of, and it was!! Thank you ALL for your everything - you made our wedding go off without a hitch and everyone loved the location and venue! Read less

The 1840s Plaza was the perfect venue for my wedding ceremony and reception. We held the ceremony in the upper courtyard and the reception in the City Lites venue on the 2nd floor of the Fava Building. It's such a beautiful and unique venue and The 1840s staff were wonderful to work with and very accommodating. I highly recommend this venue.

I loved every minute of my experience with 1840s Plaza. Stasia and Amy helped make our wedding one of the best days of my life. It was beautiful. The City Lites room was unique and so much fun. I am so grateful that we selected this venue for our reception.
Stasia and Amy were so helpful, from start to finish. I felt like I never had to worry about anything. Stasia even bustled my dress when my mom and I had trouble doing it correctly!
Everything was absolutely wonderful.
