Having our wedding at the Royal Sonesta was an amazing experience from start to finish. As soon as we toured the venue and met Jay Day, the coordinator, we knew the Royal Sonesta was for us. The location and the venue itself cannot be beat. The views are incredible and the hotel is beautiful and elegant on the inside. The food was delicious (we got so many compliments from our guests) and the service was the best I have ever experienced. Many thanks to Jay who was so helpful throughout the entire process. Believe what you read about him in the reviews - he is absolutely fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable, will answer all of your questions promptly and gives great suggestions. On the day of the wedding (and in the days leading up to it) everything went smoothly. Jay coordinated with all of our vendors, directed the rehearsal and kept us on schedule during the ceremony and reception. It was such a relief not to have to worry about any of the logistics and to just relax and enjoy the day! If you are considering this venue, go check it out. You won't regret it!

The only word to describe The Royal Sonesta Harbor Court is PERFECTION. The views, the service, the food and the accommodations were impeccable. The minute we walked into the hotel on the day of our initial visit to the day after the wedding, every detail was flawless. The Royal Sonesta staff, particularly the Director of Catering, Jeremy Day, made the whole process enjoyable and stress-free. He was very responsive to all my questions, he made recommendations that helped me make my decisions easier and his experience in event planning contributed to my relaxed state the day of the wedding. He ensured all the vendors (DJ, Florist, Photographers, Videographer, etc.) were all on the same page and I didn't have to worry about anything other than to enjoy myself. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the quality of the food, wine and services. The beautiful views were the icing on the cake of a night we truly will never forget, thanks to the Royal Sonesta, especially Mr. Day.

We had a great experience with Royal Sonesta Harbor Court and our coordinator, Jay Day. Jay was not only a great coordinator but we feel like he was considered a magician, making everything seem like it was possible. Even when there was an incident that occurred that was not the fault of the venue or Jay, he felt bad about it; which showed that he genuinely cared about our wedding and the experience from it. I can see why Jay has been awarded multiple times and we would like to again nominate him to be awarded again! This is our first time getting married and we already know that we could not have found another coordinator like him if we got married a 100 times. All the servers were all very polite and were accommodating! The venue did not have to say that their goal was customer service because we could already see it through the service and the kindness they had toward us and our guests. We had made our already married friends envious of the venue and Jay, that they did not have their wedding like ours. So thank you to Royal Sonesta Harbor Court and to Jay for making our day super special!!!

We cannot put into words the amazing experience we had by holding our wedding at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court. Starting the planning process about 18 months before our selected wedding date, we knew we had time to find a place. However, when we first stepped foot into the Royal Sonesta and was greeted by their coordinator, Jay Day, we knew this was the place for us. Throughout the whole planning process, Jay was there every step of the way. Everyone, Jay is FANTASTIC!! He brings so much knowledge and direction during the process. We had many questions since we had months to plan and he answered them all so quickly. The wedding day could not have gone more perfect! Jay and his entire staff were there every step of the way to make sure we had everything we needed. While we are sad to see if over and sad to not be working with Jay anymore, we want everyone to check out this venue. You will not regret it and we hope it is love at first sight for you as well!

Jay Day was our wedding coordinator at the Royal Sonesta, and he did an amazing job. He took everything I had envisioned for our wedding and made it a reality. He was so easy to work with, and was always willing to answer my many questions (and the ten million my mom asked on top of that!). We were lucky enough to have our cocktail hour on the rooftop deck, where the staff passed out our signature cocktails, without people even needing to go to the bar. The food was also excellent, from the passed hors d'oueuvres to dinner. Definitely the perfect wedding on all fronts thanks to Jay and the Royal Sonesta!

When I first looked at Harbor Court for my wedding I knew I loved the venue. Then I met Jay. I read the reviews and everyone raved about him and I soon found out why. Working with Jay over 14 months to plan a wedding was such fun. He is brutally honest (in the best way possible and let's face it, sometimes we need that) and tells you exactly what you need to know to make your wedding perfect. Nothing went unnoticed by Jay and his team and the day was absolutely spectacular. Leading up to the wedding, Jay reached out to all of the vendors to coordinate everything so I didn't have to and on the day of, everything ran smoothly. The food at the Harbor Court is also amazing. They will make anything you can imagine - our Baltimore surf and turf of crab cakes and steak was outstanding and the homemade burratta was equally delicious. If you're looking for a beautiful venue on the water in Baltimore, look no further. The royal sonesta Harbor Court is everything you want and need! Thank you to Jay and the entire Sonesta team - you made our day perfect!

Five stars! That's what Jay Day and the staff at the Royal Sonesta earned for our wedding it catered on May 28, 2017. But can it be that all those five star reviews are real? Yes, it really can! From the moment we met Jay and began planning the event, it was the most pleasurable and easy experience we could have imagined. Jay is professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. The staff for the catering and the hotel are as pleasant and helpful as can be. Everything was simply perfect leading up to and through the day of the wedding. Reservations for out-of-town guests? Perfect. Planning the menu? Easy. The tasting? A real treat. Getting answers to our questions? Prompt, accurate, and helpful. Recommendations for other vendors? Yep. Working with those vendors? Everybody loves Jay! Keeping things in order on the big day? Check. Running the rehearsal? No problem. Jay has the patience of a saint. Good food? Yes, absolutely delicious. Good service at the reception? First class. Returning all personal items after the wedding? Everything was neatly packed and returned. Have special needs for your religion or rituals? No problem, Jay has probably planned it before. Parking? Valet. Flexible in giving you want you want? "If it's legal," Jay says, "I can do it!" Use their menus? That's why they're there. Create your own menu? No problem, just tell them what you want. Passed hors d'oeuvres, stations, sushi chefs, kosher, meat, fish, vegetarian, pasta, bar service, premium alcohol, whatever you want - no problem! Use their audio/visual equipment? It's available. Use your own? Sure. Have etiquette questions? Jay can answer them, in the nicest way - "It's your wedding and your can do whatever you want, but usually . . ." What you read in other reviews is really true! YOU WILL NOT REGRET having your wedding at the Royal Sonesta.

There are not enough nice words I can say about this venue and the event coordinator. From our initial decision to host our wedding here through the wedding day, the process was easy and stress-free. As a bride, you are treated as special at every visit to the hotel. The entire staff was exceptionally accommodating and you feel you and your event are in great hands. The actual day of my wedding was completely enjoyable to me while every minute detail was executed perfectly by this venue. Additionally, the venue is beyond beautiful!

If you are looking to enjoy the beauty of the Inner Harbor while having a stress free wedding, choose Royal Sonesta. Jay Day makes the experience absolutely outstanding. Jay is a true professional -he is precise, creative, insightful, responsive, proactive, and patient. The chef and staff are also amazing. My guests were delighted with the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Our wedding day will forever be a wonderful memory for many reasons, but it started with choosing Royal Sonesta as our venue.

We could not have imagined a better experience! Our wedding day was perfect, and the preparations leading up to it were so easy, thanks to Jay. We had a small wedding (approx 35 people), and we wanted an appropriate-sized venue that was close to the water. Jay patiently showed us around the property and answered many follow-up questions, while we looked for venues. At the end of the day, there was really no comparison. The Royal Sonesta offered the best location at a reasonable price. Jay was extremely flexible and patient - even when we were indecisive or had no idea what we were doing. He was extremely responsive and pleasant throughout the whole process and very open to our ideas and preferences. On the day of, things went exceptionally smoothly, and we were able to relax and enjoy our day without any worry. The the wait staff was very helpful, accommodating and courteous. All of the food was phenomenal! Finally, the hotel itself is beautiful. We loved having the option of having our ceremony and cocktail hour on the rooftop garden. Our reception was in the Brightons Room - which was perfect for our smaller wedding. The bridal suite has a fantastic view of the Inner Harbor. We were very sad to check out. All in all, we could not have chosen a better venue. Our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was! We will recommend the Royal Sonesta Baltimore and hope to return for other events!
