The Hotel Baker is such a perfect spot for a wedding! We love all things vintage, and were looking for a special place to have our wedding that did not look like a banquet hall. The Hotel Baker itself is just beautiful, we held our ceremony and reception in the Rainbow Room, and the day surpassed all of our expectations. Our Catering contact was Lena, and she took such good care of us from start to finish. And the day of our event Lena was around to help with any last minute details, and just to make sure everything was perfect. The wait staff was just amazing, taking appetizers to family and friends that were in another area during cocktail hour, just to make sure they did not miss any of the great food. During the dinner service, we were amazed at how quickly the staff served the food, and how friendly there were. And one of the biggest reasons to book the Hotel Baker is the food. This food was actually delicious, and served warm! We have all been to many other weddings where that may not be the case. We had many people come in from out of town, and they just loved staying in the beautiful guest rooms. The only downside is that this is a small hotel, and they only have 62 hotel rooms. Lena and the front desk crew did a great job trying to keep on top of how many rooms were in our block, and added as many rooms as possible to accomodate our guests. I did consider myself to be a pretty picky bride, and wanted to be in control of every details. I can honestly say that Lena and her team did everything perfectly, and I have nothing but top marks for this amazing hotel. PS - Our bridal party and guests are already asking if we can have a party there again next year too!

Amazing! We could not have asked for a more beautiful location for our wedding! If you don't want a typical banquet room for your reception, this is the place to go. Rowena and Mike were such a pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted it to be.

Christiane was absolutely wonderful and beyond helpful at Hotel Baker. She was willing to meet at a moments notice and was very prompt with e-mails and phone calls. Planning a wedding from out-of-state was stressful, but Christiane made things as easy as possible on us. She helped make our event absolutely flawless and we can't praise her enough for the work that she did for us. She helped with the set-up, finalize food and drinks, and overall made our experience as the bride and groom unforgettable. The entire day was a fairytale, especially at the historic setting of Hotel Baker. The Rainbow Room was classy and beautiful and every last one of our guest kept commenting about how beautiful Hotel Baker was. The food and cake offered in our package was worth every cent. We loved having our event at Hotel Baker and would gladly throw another party there in the future!!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Hotel Baker in the Rainbow Room this past weekend and could not rave about this place more! Christiane was our contact at Hotel Baker and was incredible with her responsiveness and willingness to accommodate our requests. We received compliments all night about how beautiful the hotel was. The weather was so nice that they were able to open the patio from the Waterfront Room during cocktail hour. Service staff was great, food was wonderful (we had the pork entree). We stayed in the Penthouse Suite that night and had a piece of cake, milk, and bottle of champagne waiting for us. We were extremely happy with Hotel Baker and would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to have your wedding!

Such a beautiful setting for the most romantic day of your life. The Historic Hotel Baker truly cared about our evening being perfect! My husband and I missed dessert because we were thanking all the guests for coming, and after a long night of celebrating we headed back to the master suit where fresh desserts were waiting for us to enjoy! Such a lovely surprise :)

The Hotel Baker did a beautiful job with my wedding ceremony and my reception! They also held my wedding shower which was also gorgeous! They food was amazing, everyone complimented it. The old world charm, plus things like the light up dance floor making this venue hard to beat! When you add in an amazing wedding planner with the hotel she makes it even better! Their wedding planner helped me with every little detail taking so much stress off my shoulders and even did little things on her own home time for me! If I had to do my wedding again I would do it at the Baker Hotel no questions asked!

Hotel Baker was the perfect setting for our wedding! It is elegance and romance rolled up in one place! The food was delicious, definitely not your run-of-the-mill banquet food, and the service was impecable! Plus, the hotel is gorgeous so anywhere a photo is taken, it's bound to look amazing! It's a bit pricey, but, hey, you get what you pay for! Highly recommended!
