My husband and I got married at the Battery Wharf Hotel in September and can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was from start to finish. Our main point of contact was Katie Rippin, who is an absolute dream to work with! She is sweet, responsive and extremely on top of her game. Katie, and every other staffer we interacted with went above and beyond for us in every way possible, to ensure that we had a smooth and enjoyable experience.

I would not recommend this place to my friends who are getting married. We had our wedding ceremony and reception here in the summer of 2014. We spent over 20K. The positives: the location is on the water and is beautiful. The negatives: where do I start. It was extremely stressful planning with the event coordinator. Emails were unresponsive. It took several emails and nearly two weeks to be sent the reception room floor plan to plan guest dinner seating. For 20K, I expect within-day email response. When I had to contact the head event person to get anywhere, he was downright rude. They also didn't want to do a wedding food tasting in order for me to to select among the various dinner menu options, which is unheard of; had to persist to get one and it made me feel like a second-class citizen. The day before the wedding I realized they were planning to charge me 75 dollars a pop for toddler meals consisting of spaghetti w/meatballs or chicken fingers plus 25 dollars a pop for toddler drinks. That is just outrageous. Overall, I felt they were trying to rip me off at every turn. The wedding went without incident thanksfully, but the amount of stress I went through trying to organize it was really unfortunate. I would say take your money somewhere other than this corporate scam of a place.

Our cocktail hour, ceremony, dinner and reception were all held in the ballroom area downstairs. Overall, the wedding was a great success and we could not have been happier with our venue choice!
The absolute best part of having our wedding at the Fairmont was the access to the onsite wedding planner, Mabel Ramonas. Mabel not only performed her professional duties as our coordinator but also became our friend during the process. Her organization and attention to detail were instrumental in our wedding being a success. Beyond her professional obligations Mabel also reminded us of details we would have otherwise forgotten or never thought of. Mabel also introduced us to other members of the staff who were able to assist us in other aspects and provided us with vendor recommendations. Wedding planning is stressful but Mabel had a way of providing a calm and confidence that got us through. Our wedding was one of the most important days of our lives. And Mabel, through her professionalism and caring nature, helped us to create a memory that we will cherish as one of our happiest days. We recommend Mabel and the Fairmont for any wedding or corporate event.
The chef was also amazing. The dinner was executed perfectly and our guests raved about the food. Many said it was the best wedding food they ever had!
As a final note, as with any event, there were a few minor hiccups. The ballroom area shares a bathroom with the upstairs restaurant which lent itself to wedding crashers. They were easily recognized and removed but nonetheless it was surprising. And the hotel bar closed earlier than expected (we were originally told they would be open after the reception). So, we moved our late night party to a secondary venue. [good to keep in mind if your guests are the partying type.]
Again though, we were beyond pleased with the venue choice and the assistance of Mabel. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone interested in marrying in the Boston area!

I'm very impressed with the whole staff; from the doorman, valet, checkin, restaurant host and of course the wedding coordinator. They were top notch! They were responsive without being intrusive, and all of my needs were met the day of my wedding, and the days leading to it. I've worked with both Ashley and Karly. They were very organized and professional, as well as friendly.

The venue itself was beautiful, elegant and charming. Located on Boston's waterfront makes it even more desirable, as the view from the hotel was gorgeous, which was great for pictures.

It's pricey, as everything else in Boston. But you get a lot for your money, in terms of service.

We chose this venue because it is right on the waterfront, right behind the North End and small enough to feel like a home away from home and big enough to accommodate our wedding of 130 ppl. This venue is unique and very classy without being overstated or too fancy. Our contact was Ashley Lamy, who was incredible. She walked us through the whole process and made us feel that we didn't need to worry about anything--and we didn't. She tried to accommodate all of our requests and even threw in some extra perks which were a great surprise. On the day of the event, everything we asked about was there and the event was flawless. We had our ceremony and cocktail reception outside with part of the reception in the Maritime museum onsite. We then moved inside for dinner. We had a buffet and the food was so good. Everyone commented on the food and how friendly the staff was. People were really impressed at the high level of service. Everyone has been telling us that this was one of the best weddings that they have ever been to and a lot of that credit goes to Ashley, the chef, the service staff, the A/V department and the bartenders (who everyone knew by name). Thank you, thank you for making this event so easy, memorable and fun!

We were married at the Fairmont Battery Wharf on New Year's Eve. We couldn't have been happier with the service we received, starting with our very first meeting through to the event itself. Ashley Lamy and her team took care of every need we had throughout the process and ensured that our big night went off without a hitch. The venue proved to be the perfect setting for the wedding and all of our guests raved about the quality and quantity of food. We would highly recommend the Fairmont Battery Wharf to anyone considering a Boston wedding!

The Fairmont was truly amazing, beyond stunning and the staff was so welcoming. They made us feel as though we were the only ones they were working with. Although we knew they were also working another wedding the same day as ours, we did not feel as though they were stressed or juggling with us. They treated us well, upgraded our room to the most amazing and beautiful suite. No matter what we asked for, they found a way to make it happen. We had our ceremony outside on the harbor walk and reception at the Maritime Museum. We had a smallish wedding (30 people) and the museum was a perfect place for the reception. The Harbor Walk provided a gorgeous backdrop to our intimate ceremony. The Services Manager (Ashley) was there and oversaw our ceremony and reception to ensure that everything went as planned and prevented interruptions from the water taxi. Every time we talk about our wedding with people, we always rave about the Fairmont and Ashley. In all the hotels I have stayed at, I have never been treated so well by every member of the staff. I highly recommend having your wedding, reception or any other event at the Fairmont.

My husband Jason and I were married at the beautiful Fairmont Battery Wharf (FBW) on September 24, 2011. We chose this location for four reasons: we wanted to be married in Boston; we wanted our wedding ceremony to be held outside on Boston Harbor; we heard great things about the food; and we loved the modern décor of the ballroom and skylight area.

We could not have made a better choice. From the attentive and welcoming hotel staff to the comfortable and modern guest rooms to the amazing plated dinner at our reception to the breathtaking outdoor ceremony site, the entire experience was beyond amazing. On our wedding night, the FBW gave us a suite overlooking the harbor. My wedding party got primped and ready for the ceremony in this most beautiful room as well.

The food at the cocktail hour and reception was delicious – our guests are still raving about it, saying it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Our guests loved cocktail hour outdoors near the waterfront. The Fairmont’s ballroom and skylight area are unique and classy – we had a blast dancing underneath the skylight. Everyone enjoyed drinks at Aragosta Bar and Bistro in the Fairmont after the reception ended – the cocktails were amazing. The next day, we held a small brunch in Aragosta. The service was top-notch and the food was delicious, especially the blueberry pancakes!

Our wedding coordinator Ashley Lamy has the patience of a saint and provided excellent service as we planned the ceremony and reception. Ashley is a true professional and an excellent coordinator. She responded to my questions and emails almost immediately and tried to be as flexible as possible with certain requests. On the day of our wedding rehearsal, Ashley insisted we rehearse the ceremony outdoors (with umbrellas!) and at the back-up site (the ballroom). Good thing she did, because the rain surprisingly went away on Saturday and our ceremony was beyond gorgeous. Thanks to Ashley, the rehearsal, ceremony and reception could not have gone any more smoothly or been any more beautiful. It was an amazing day and I wish I could do it again!
