Exceptional Service, Beautiful space, Great food! My wedding ceremony and reception were held at Hotel Monaco. Randie Haber was my wedding coordinator. Mrs. Haber delivers empeciable service. There was never a time when she was not available to me! (I always felt like I was the ONLY bride she was working with). I could always count on her timely responsiveness to my questions (within a few hours, and many times the same day and even if it was after hours). This was extremely comforting to me as a bride! Because of this Randie stood out among my various vendors.
So many are in the business to sell you on insignificant wedding services but Randie actually listened to my needs and requests as the bride, while providing an education on the wedding planning process. She is an absolute expert in what she does! I could not have asked for a better wedding venue experience. Consultation with the chef, cake consultation (Cake from LaCakerie which was included) the room block representative, valet and room service were all a dream to work with!
Many guest complimented the nice common areas including the lobby (with complimentary wine hour), and the grand staircase. The guest rooms were uniquely decorated, clean and comfortable.
If you are a bride looking for an intimate, non-banquet style venue space, please do yourself a favor and visit Hotel Monaco's Paris and Athens event spaces!
The Hotel itself is amazingly beautiful. The icing on top is that it comes with a staff full of amazing people!!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Hotel Monaco and the staff there! The hotel was the perfect site for my 60-person wedding and the accompanying hotel block, and all of the staff were incredibly helpful! While the marble staircases and stain glass windows in the lobby pretty much sell the venue on its own, it was the Hotel Monaco's event staff that made my wedding day completely perfect! Rachel, the event coordinator, did an AMAZING job throughout planning and on the day-of-event, keeping everything running smoothly and ensuring that my decor was set up beautifully! She has wonderful taste and was very professional -- she kept me well informed of the progress throughout the wedding planning and was also ready to help out with ideas whenever my husband and I had a concern. Randie, the catering manager and Chef Tyler also did a great job ensuring that the menu was WONDERFUL and that we were able to incorporate some unique traditions into our wedding day. Our guests RAVED about the food at the event and we were so happy to have been able to provide them a gourmet, "foodie friendly" meal. Dominic, the banquet manager, did an absolutely amazing job overseeing all of the wedding day set up and he kept the event running so smoothly that my husband and I were able to spend the night dancing with all of our family and friends! The hotel wait and bar staff were also impeccable -- all of our guests were particularly impressed that the bartenders and wait staff were able to remember what they had been drinking all evening and prepare/bring them fresh drinks without even having to be asked! Finally, everyone at the Hotel Monaco was very friendly and happy to help in any way they could, which may the event very special and many of our guests commented on the friendliness of the staff. The great execution of the event by Hotel Monaco, the high quality of the food, and the overall beauty of the wedding was exactly what we were hoping for in a venue!

I had my reception at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore in July and it went perfectly. Randie Haber was the wedding coordinator and she was exceptional from the initial meeting to the very end. She worked with me and my family on every detail of the reception planning and was very responsive to my ideas and changes. Randie is the ultimate professional who is passionate about her job, and we had an amazing time working with her! The hotel was such a perfect setting with its history, gorgeous architecture, and marble lobby. The Paris room was beautiful, and the lobby right outside was the ideal setup for the cocktail hour. The ballroom allowed for many setup options, which provided much flexibility and ultimately a breathtaking floor plan! The chef was a pleasure to work with during the tasting and the hors d’oeuvres and dinner selection was outstanding. Dominic, who coordinated the room setup and the serving staff, was always there to happily assist us with any of our needs during planning or the reception itself. He made sure the table arrangements and place settings were just as we wanted and the food service was timed perfectly. He and his whole staff were very attentive and personable. We even got some of the staff on the dance floor at the end! I could not have dreamed of a better reception than the one I had at Hotel Monaco Baltimore.

Just had my wedding (both ceremony and reception) this weekend at Hotel Monaco and it was PERFECT. Their wedding team are PROS and handled everything smoothly and wonderfully. Randie was my coordinator and she was a godsend; she never hesitated to promptly respond to every silly little obsessive email I sent about anything and everything. She was fun, supportive, professional, and smart the whole time, with great ideas of her own as needed, while also understanding and fulfilling any particulars of our own vision. The custom food consultation was so much fun, and you get actual B&O Brasserie restaurant chefs putting together the menu with you and making the food, so it's not your average generic catering going on! They also have a master mixologist who helps with your signature cocktail. So if you're like me and a foodie/cocktail lover, you will be smiling large! They even let us give everyone duet dishes! No need to stress out about everyone choosing one dish or another. They also include your choice of cake consultation with the famous Charm City Cakes and the newer La Cakerie (whose staff also trained at Charm City) who we went with; the cake was AMAZING. I almost cried that I had to cut and eat it, it was that beautiful. (But of course it was delicious too!) The linen selection was also incredible and perfect, and the venue is just gorgeous with the famous marble staircase and the modern/quirky chic decor everywhere. All of the staff were so pleasant and friendly to everyone and helpful; Dominic and the other head waiter was so kind and made everything flawless. They worked seamlessly with all the other vendors I hired. It was great and less stressful to have all my family and friends in one building for everything, especially with our wacky weather this weekend. If you want a fun, modern, convenient, gorgeous wedding, look no further!!!

We had the most memorable, beautiful, fun, and easy-to-plan wedding entirely because it was at the Hotel Monaco and because of Randie Haber (Director of Catering). Every person we interacted with was exceptionally kind, helpful, and happy for us. The chef is preternaturally gifted and helped us create a menu that reflected our backgrounds and tastes. The hotel itself is also gorgeous, with original marble and brass ornaments from when it was the headquarters of the B&O railroad. Their wedding packages are very well priced and I feel like we got more than we paid for.

If we ever do a big anniversary party, we would do it at the Monaco.

If I could give Hotel Monaco a 10 I would. We used the hotel for our Rehearsal Dinner, Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, Reception, AND after party and we could not be ANY happier with the way everything turned out. One month later we're still receiving compliments on the food, the flow of the events throughout the evening, and the friendliness and professionalism of the staff.

They worked with our families to create completely a different theme for the rehearsal dinner from what we were planning for the reception and it worked out beautifully. The rehearsal went smoothly, even though our officiant was a friend and had never done a wedding ceremony before.

The wedding day of course flew by but was a BREEZE. We were able to enjoy every moment because Randie, Yim, and Dominic took care of EVERYTHING. Randie helped us coordinate a few surprises throughout the wedding day which went off without a hitch. They made sure we were everywhere we needed to be and that we were constantly taken care of. If we were taken care of, they were making sure our guests were taken care of. If anything went wrong - one month later we still don't know about it because no one is complaining. The front desk staff were amazing as well and took care of us all day and night throughout the entire weekend - all the way through Monday.

I really cannot say enough about the people at Hotel Monaco. Not only is the venue beautiful (that should speak for itself), but we chose the hotel more because of who we'd be working with and we could not be happier. Randie, Yim, and Dominic made sure we had the most amazing night of our lives, which we most certainly did. Our friends and family continue to rave about it and will continue to for weeks and months to come!

The Hotel Monaco in Baltimore, and its wedding/events coordinator Rachel Avarella, make ti the very best venue for a wedding ceremony and reception/dinner! Every single detail was perfect. The setting of the hotel's building with its gorgeous marble to the hotel with its boutiquey, funky feel were stunning for photos and so fun for our guests. The food was spectacular too! Our guests raved about it after...no one ever remembers the food at a wedding but ours will! I loved everything about our wedding at the Monaco and working with Rachel.

PHENOMENAL! From the moment we saw this magnificent building (built in 1906; massive marble staircases, tiffany windows), gorgeous spaces, impeccably maintained furnishings, and met Randie Haber (the most knowledgable, efficient and talented event planner EVER), we knew there could be no other place for our daughter's wedding. We had extremely high expectations, and they were exceeded at every step!

The event planning and coordination with vendors was terrific, and the day of the event was a wonder to observe and participate in. Another reviewer talked about the staff functioning like a well-oiled machine, and it's true....but more like a private jet engine! Randie, Yim and Dom anticipated and provided EVERYTHING before I even knew we needed it. The bartenders and wait staff were warm, professional and efficient. Randie helped to solve last minute problems (missing groomsmen attire!) with such calm and confidence. The timeline was established and executed with surgical precision. And all the while, Randie, Yim and Dom made sure that the families were lovingly attended to and could enjoy every second of the too-fleeting day. The night was capped off with an after party in the hotel "living room" until 2am. And then the extraordinary team turned the rooms over; set up a gorgeous morning-after brunch, re-purposing the reception flowers in an artistic display on tables and windowsills. They packed up all the left-behinds from the night before for an easy check-out. Nothing was ever a problem. The answer was always "yes" (sometimes before I even thought of the question!)

And the food was extraordinary. The only wedding "venue" I know of that does not provide a menu to select from, but provided a private meeting with the chef so the bride and groom could discuss their likes and dislikes and the chef could design a custom seasonal menu. And did I mention the linens and chair selection? Unparalleled.

You and your guests will be impressed!

And then the extraordinary team turned the rooms over; set up a gorgeous morning-after brunch, re-purposing the reception flowers in an artistic display on tables and windowsills. They packed up all the left-behinds from the night before for an easy check-out. Nothing was ever a problem. The answer was always "yes" (sometimes before I even thought of the question!)

And the food was extraordinary. The only wedding "venue" I know of that does not provide a menu to select from, but provided a private meeting with the chef so the bride and groom could discuss their likes and dislikes and the chef could design a custom seasonal menu. And did I mention the linens and chair selection? Unparalleled.
