The event that comes only once in a lifetime.

The day that can never be repeated.

The day that you have dreamed of.

The day that brings something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, warm smiles, happy tears and special love.

Imagine... a limousine ride through scenic "Hunt Country" in Baltimore County on the way to your wedding reception. The guests enjoy cocktails and scrumptious hors d'oeuvres while awaiting your arrival in one of our beautiful ballroom foyers. You step into the beautiful lobby and are swept to your private bridal party room where champagne and hors d'oeuvres await you and your beloved.

It's now time to make your entrance into the Grand Ballroom. As you walk in, you look around, and... it's beautiful, just as you imagined it would be.

Wedding dreams do come true at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn. Our professional staff is here to guide you through the entire event, from the intial planning, to coordinating all the details before and during the reception. We will be with you from beginning to end to ensure that your day is absolutely perfect. Read less

When we signed our contract it was Marriott affiliated, when the name switched over we were worrie as to how that would affect our reception (it didn't really). Mary was absolutely amazing and so helpful!! I could not have been more happy with her. She bent over backwards to accommodate my needs!!!

Planning a 250 person wedding isn't easy, especially when you're a bride who "all the little details" matters most. As someone who is in event planning, I know I'm not an easy person to please but the Hunt Valley Inn and its staff really came through big for my big day! I was particularly concerned when the hotel went from a Marriott to an individually owned and operated hotel four months before the wedding. They assured me that nothing would be different from my original contract and it was not. The event manager (Mary Cummings) and catering manager (Jennifer) were the two ladies who truly made it all happen. I had multiple different requests such as a signature drink, a mock, red carpet, a cigar bar, a fast-food bar, specialized table numbers, etc. and they came through with everything. Every detail that I planned out happened just as I had hoped. The only reason I gave a half a star on quality is that the ballroom, while large and was decorated nicely is very outdated. The carpet is very "busy" and the "chandaliers" are outdated and unattractive bringing the overall look of the room down slightly. Additionally, I had a "room uplighting" included in my package which I thought would be the entire room of purple when really it was just four lights around the ballroom with a purple light shooting up the wall. I was disappointed in that but it wasn't a deal breaker by any stretch. Details such as our fantastic cake (from SugarBakers), raspberries in our champagne, multiple fully-stocked, bars and a separate bridal suite for our bridal party to enjoy hors d'ourvres and drinks separately from the cocktail hour knocked it out of the ballpark.

Our wedding was perfect. The day we walked into the Hunt Valley Marriott we knew it would be the perfect place for our big day. The best parts about the hotel are: a ton of beautiful guest rooms, free parking, free wi-fi and tons of resturants and shops walking distance from the hotel in the hunt valley shopping center, swimming pool, gym and in house bar and resturant.
Our original wedding coordinator left the company about halfway into our wedding planning. A new coordinator picked up right where she left off and everything was flawless. We had our ceremony and reception in the maryland ballroom, we also held a sunday brunch in the garden room. The staff and all servers were very professional and helpful. The only last minute thing we had to run out and get was an aisle runner as the hotel did not have one, and I hadn't thought of this before hand.
Our ceremony and reception was setup so perfectly and the room was a great size for the group we had(about 190), the dance floor was also plenty big. We had stations for our meal and every single guest has told us how delicious the meal was. Most of our guests were from out of town and stayed over night at the hotel and a lot of the local guests also choose to spend the night, the rates are very resonable. the hotel and staff were very accomodating to anything we needed to do. They also handed out our guest check in bags without any problem. We would recommend the Hunt Valley Marriott to anyone who wants to have an amazing wedding

Absolutely beautiful. Mary the planner was amazing. I felt so comfortable with her. I went to plenty of venues to look at and Mary was the only person to call and confirm the appointment, remember we were coming for that matter, and send me a post card to thank me for coming and hoping to work with me. That let me know the Marriott was my place to go. They are flexible in making things fit your budget. I could not complain about one thing on my day. Everything went as planned and the venue looked amazing. my big thing was a big dance floor....and that was not an issue, you make it the size you want! I would refer this venue to anyone!!!

We are very lucky to have gotten to work with Delynn Powelson at the Hunt valley Marriott. She was probably the most accommodating vendor and she was so easy to work with. She answered every question we had (which was a lot) in a timely manner, with an explanation to help us better our event. The food was absolutely fantastic and cooked to perfection thanks to head chef, Richard Millman. The venue itself was clean and ready for us when we came to set up and drop off things for the wedding prior to the date. We absolutely have not one negative thing to say about the Hunt Valley Marriott, and Delynn Powelson herself. Her positive attitude, knowledge about the venue and weddings in general, as well as her overall assistance to help us create our dream wedding was much appreciated. We are looking forward to hopefully having another party there in the future and working with Delynn and her staff again. If we had to do it again, I definitely would not change a thing at the HVM.

This was an absolute dream of a venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. We also had our rehearsal here, and our post-wedding brunch. Not only was it super convenient for our guests to have a wedding where the ceremony and reception were in the same location, and with free parking, but the service provided by Delynn Powelson and her staff for the entire year leading up to the event and for the event itself were truly world class. Delynn was completely flexible with us on every component of the planning and delivery of the event - she offered suggestions to us when we had questions and when she saw opportunities to make things easier or better for us. EVERYTHING seemed to be included in our package, and the value for the price was really wonderful. The food was delicious, we had many, many guests say, "This was the best wedding food I ever had". Sugarbakers cakes was included in the package, and they are the absolute best tasting cake in Baltimore. Chair covers and sashes, which is a lot of work for venues, were beautiful and were included in the package with no extra charge. The dance floor was so pretty, it was HUGE, and our guests complimented the venue repeatedly. If you are looking for easy planning and a great professional to work with, at a fantastic price, this is definitely the venue for you!

We were able to book the BMHVI as our reception location, and it is a WONDERFUL location. The grounds have several colorful garden areas, and the colors and modern features inside the hotel make the scenery visually appealing (and great for pictures!). Many of our guests commented on the convenience of this hotel to the highway and so many other local businesses on York Road. The hotel staff delightfully worked with us to make sure our guests (who were all from out of town) were given a great overnight rate- they even distributed welcome gift boxes that we put together as guests checked in! The staff throughout the hotel are extremely professional, and they know how to take care of everything in an exceptional manner (kudos to the manager in the bar area the night of our wedding- he took care of so much for us and even managed to make it back to the hotel for a 6am shift the very next day!). At the reception, the food was excellent, the drinks were strong, the wedding cake (which came as a great feature of the package!) was beautiful and tasty! And the wedding coordinator (Delynn) was amazing to work with- she is prompt in her email replies and phone calls and knows how to make sure the day runs smoothly and exactly how you want it to be- perfect.
