My husband and I give the Hotel Monaco four enthusiastic thumbs up! We love, love, love the Hotel Monaco Wedding Team.

From the very beginning I knew it would be great. First, the hotel is absolutely beautiful…The marble staircases, Tiffany stained glass windows, amazing chandelier in the entrance, and fireplace in the lobby will leave you speechless. Second, the swanky hotel rooms make you feel like you’re way cooler than you really might be. Finally, NELLE and her team are the TRUTH! Seriously, they get that weddings are supposed to be a happy time of celebration between a bride, groom and their loved ones. They really took the time to get to know us and made sure that our day would be perfect. Throughout the entire process, NELLE was amazing, she made suggestions for vendors, asked how she could help, introduced us the rest of her fabulous team (i.e. YIM and DOMINIC) and pretty much took all of the stress away from planning a wedding. DIANE and AMY were also amazing with my hotel block. They gave us great rate for my out of town guests, kept us in the loop as my block started to fill, and accommodated a few late additions. I have to give an extra big thanks to TAMIKA and the rest of the front desk staff for making my guests feel like royalty. Our chef (GRACE) listened to us and helped create a menu that would reflect our personalities, but most importantly be so good that people would request more, lol.

Fast forward to the wedding and reception… Everything went EXACTLY as planned. The Ceremony was beautiful (and started on time); the cocktail hour (with the yummiest appetizers and open bar) was a success; and the reception, which was really a party into 2015, was epic (taken directly from one of my guest’s FB post)! All night people remarked about how great the food, hotel, and service was.

If your goal is to have an amazing wedding/reception without an ounce of stress, the Hotel Monaco is your place! #BestWeddingTeamEver

My new husband and I could not have asked for a better wedding consultant and team for our big day. From the first day we met with Randie Haber to our wedding day, we felt confident that we were in good hands. Like many couples, we’ve never planned a wedding before. Randie was a true professional and helped us with everything! From vendor recommendations, to all of the planning details and to ensuring that we were comfortable throughout the whole process; Randie was there for us. She understood the type of wedding we wanted and she executed!

Having really good food was very important to us and to have the ability to customize our menu based on our preferences was phenomenal! We received so many compliments on how delicious our food and cake were. HUGE props to the chefs and her team!

The entire staff at the Hotel Monaco-Baltimore was exceptional. From the guys down at the valet service, accounting, reservations and the catering staff, all went above and beyond and truly delivered a positive experience for us and all of our wedding guests.

The hotel is also beautiful and we loved that it’s a restored building that used to be a train station. It has lots of character and charm and perfect for several photo ops!

If anyone were to ask me where the best wedding venue in Baltimore is, I would certainly say, hands down, the Hotel Monaco.

Thanks for helping to make our day so special!

I highly recommend the Hotel Monaco for a wedding or event. Our daughter's wedding was perfect in every way. From the moment we met Nelle Somerville, we knew we were in good hands and had no need to worry. She is a true asset to the hotel. Every staff member at this hotel is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We were thrilled with our wedding and are grateful to the hotel and staff for making our daughter's wedding day one to remember.

Nelle and the whole team at the Hotel Monaco was beyond amazing. From our very first meeting to tour the venue as a possible wedding option, they went above and beyond with customer service. The hotel itself is as fantastic as its staff; the white marble staircases and tiffany glass windows were the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. our consultation with grace (the chef) for our menu was wonderful; she is extremely creative, and was able to incorporate all of our favorite foods into a delicious meal. we had nothing but compliments on the food...the pumpkin hummus was something many guests asked if we knew how they could make it at home! our wedding wouldn't have been possible without nelle's help and guidance. she is always available for questions, etc over email (even when i'd send 3 in a row instead of making a list and including it all in one!). most of my friends commented on my lack of stress on the big day; i had no concerns knowing that nelle and her team was taking care of our setup and organization. our wedding was perfect, everything we could have asked for, and our guests had nothing but rave reviews for the hotel and its staff. being from florida,the majority of my guests stayed at the hotel as well and loved it. thank you so much to the monaco and nelle for a perfect event!

Hotel Monaco was the perfect atmosphere for our wedding reception-- Fun and colorful, but also formal. The food was fantastic. The wedding package that we chose took a lot of the guess-work out of the planning. We deeply appreciated the hotel's green practices, strong support of local farms and businesses, and consciousness in selecting ethically raised meat. The hotel staff was pleasant-- It was clear that each person working at Hotel Monaco loved his/her job. Everyone that we worked with did a spectacular job-- Yim, Diane, Amy, Stephanie, Mat, the chef and the entire waitstaff team. There was no request to big or too small. Hotel Monaco nailed it. But most of all, we LOVED working with Nelle Somerville. She had our backs every step of the way. Doubtless, the wedding would not have been as special as it was without her efforts. If we had it to do all over again, my husband and I would not hesitate to schedule our wedding with Hotel Monaco.

The Hotel Monaco is not only a beautiful venue, with a rich history and funky upgrades- it has the most incredible event staff. From day 1, the wedding coordinator made me feel like we were the only wedding she was working with. She was fun, easy, responsive, and full of great ideas! There was not a single thing on my wedding day that I had to worry about. It was nice that they offered wedding package options and worked with us on some of the items. Almost everything you need for a wedding is included in their packages. The restaurant downstairs, B&O is the caterer for the events - so you know you're getting really delicious food. The best part is that we got to do a taste test of the delicious food and then enjoy it again at our wedding.
The entire staff works with a smiling friendly face, they take care of anything right away, and treat everyone so well. I can't say enough wonderful things about the hotel and the people the put everything together. I put my faith into the professionals and I was not disappointed. I'm only sad that it's over! Every bride should be able to relax and trust that their day will go off as they plan- and Monaco did that for me.

The most amazing night of my life. Yes everyone says that about their wedding except without the help of the wedding coordinator Nelle Somerville my night could not have been more amazing. I had no clue about weddings and she helped me every single step of the way. I don't know what i would have done without her. The day of our wedding i had no worries other than how to stop myself from crying so much because her and the staff took care of everything for me. The environment was welcoming and breath taking and everyone was so attentive and the food receives ten stars because it was AMAZING. Guests told us that's the best wedding food they have ever had. Overall an AMAZING place to have your wedding :) .

The catering staff was able to accommodate very last minute requests without missing a beat. The front desk staff was very responsive and immediately provided customer service recovery if there was any problem.

Nelle is awesome! Our relationship with her grew into more than just a working one and we are extremely grateful for everything she did for us. We live in Philadelphia so she made herself available on weekends and promptly responded to our emails. She assisted on the day of by jumping in during our rehearsal and providing guidance; that really helped tackle a lot of the stress we were dealing with. We had a memorable and amazing experience and it was without any complications and we couldn't have been happier.

The staff was absolutely amazing!! We have never experienced such attention to detail, availability and willingness to go above and beyond. If we could sing their praises any further we would gladly.

Awesome venue, we would recommend any day.

I could not have dreamed that my wedding day would come together as well as it did without Hotel Monaco's help. Our wedding coordinator Nelle was amazing. Her years of experience in the wedding industry most definitely show. She always listened to my husband and my desires while also providing keen input based on her experiences planning and coordinating past weddings. You cannot imagine the barrage of e-mails that I sent and she always responded quickly to all of my concerns. Even on the morning of the wedding when I thought I would nearly faint due to the immediate fast pace of the day, Nelle arrived at 6am and helped problem-solve all morning so I could ride off into the sunset and get married without a worry. Domenic took over for Nelle once the reception was underway and he was also so helpful throughout the reception and was quite flexible to our needs throughout the process. The rest of the serving staff was also just incredible! All of my guests gushed that they felt like royalty throughout the reception.

Before the big day: our chef's consultation and tasting were great. The chef took the time to listen to our requests, offer guidance, and then provide his own input for what would work for our group size. The menu was incredibly flexible and we were allowed to be as creative as we liked. My only qualm regarding food was that on the day of the sides to our beef entree looked and tasted quite different from what expected after the tasting. Not bad, just different.

With regards to my room block, our guests absolutely loved the accommodations and were impressed by the grandeur of the hotel, but moreover by the kindness of all of the staff encountered. Amy and Diane were so easy to work with and they made setting up the room block and coordinating welcome bags an easy task.

Overall, I would choose to work with the team at Hotel Monaco a million times over. I am so grateful for their support for the 10 months up to and through my wedding day.
