I had visited 5 other Baltimore hotels as a possible venue for my wedding and wasn't completely sold on any of them. Interestingly enough, the day I had my first appointment with the Tremont, I had gone to two other hotel venue appointments earlier and both asked me where I was going next. As soon as I said "The Tremont" both hotel reps had this look on their face like they were thinking "I guess I won't see you again..." That was my first clue that I was going to see something special and I did. The Tremont Grand is a beautiful facility, completely separate from the hotel itself with several unique rooms. We knew as soon we walked into the Edinburgh Hall that was the place we wanted to get married in and the Corinthian Room was so elegant and gorgeous that there was no way we would not have our reception there. The venue sales contact was a little unresponsive initially which is why I've taken off half a star. She did not readily answer emails consistently and sometimes I had to follow up with another email or phone call. This was a bit disconcerting because I was really trying to get the venue booked and the contract signed so was getting a little nervous. Aside from that, she was very flexible in setting up the contract, allowing us to plan for our wedding within our budget but letting us pay a little more to incorporate an entree and cocktail appetizer options from the higher priced packages to customize our menu. When I first saw the Tremont on their website, I really didn't think the venue would be within our budget but they really worked with us to make it possible. When it was time to begin the full blown planning, we worked with Lauren Flaig as our coordinator who is amazing! She was so organized, responsive and detailed. Because I'm extremely anal and a bit of a control freak, I knew that I could only work with someone who could stay on top of things the same way and she fit the bill completely. The day of the wedding went very smooth, the venue looked gorgeous and the service was excellent. We had a small hiccup during the reception when one of the bar tables crashed but I was having such a good time and the staff handled things so well, I barely noticed until someone told me about it later. We served the crab cake and filet duo entree which was delicious. Lauren was excellent about making sure that we accounted for any guests with food allergies and dietary restrictions, even going so far as letting me note which guests liked their steaks at different temperatures. The Tremont even baked our wedding cake as part of our dinner package. I wasn't expecting much as the cake wasn't a big priority for me but the it turned out really nice and tasted surprisingly good, with each layer a different flavor. My guests all raved about the venue, the food and the night in general. If you are planning on holding your wedding in Baltimore, there is nowhere else you should have it except for the Tremont. You will not regret it!

Everyone at the Tremont Grand has the "Can DO" attitude and does so before you even ask. Example: 30 seconds before the bride walks down the aisle our assigned ANGEL runs to get her a kleenex as that was a NECESSITY at that point. It is the details that make a wedding. Put your hands in the hands of the TREMONT staff, and your memories will be made.

This venue is sublime. The rooms all have amazing character, to the point where decorations are practically superfluous. The food is included and delicious and the ability of the staff to work with you is fantastic. Most importantly, you are incredibly pampered on the day of the event...unbeatable

Thank you Julia for allowing us to be a part of your story. We are so proud of the uniqueness and beauty our building offers and appreciate your lovely comments. We all wish you great happiness! -Diane Guarantano, Director of Catering

The server Jamie was fanstastic. He got us everything we asked for. I even got him to have some fun with us during the reception. Jamie is an absolute asset to the business and I hope he gets recognized. Thank Jamie

I don't no where to start. Everything and I mean everything, down to the last little detail, was taken care of. The Staff was over the top helpful, which every bride deserves! If you want a ballroom wedding, look no further. The Corinthian Room is so beautiful, all by itself, there isn't much you need to do to make it any better. So impressive!! From the beginning, you get what you want, they will accommodate you anyway you want. The food was beyond outstanding and everyone constantly commented on it. I could not have picked a better place. During the dinner and thru out the night, Nina and Zina, were on top of everything and couldn't be any nicer. No worries because there wasn't any, due to the two of them. Tianne was so accommodating as the wedding representative, it was a pleasure to work with her. If you want a wedding with no worries, everything taken care of, and perfection, the Grand is the place!!

A beautiful location for a wedding reception! Eun Kim, Cathy Peck, Nina and everyone at the Grand Historic Venue were very attentive and we enjoyed working with them. Everyone is committed to provided top quality service. Eun was great with wedding planning and reminders, especially since we only had 6 months to organize details. She was also very helpful with recommendations to assist us in planning all the little details that help make the day so special (and the event successful). We enjoyed the tasting and the Grand Historic was very accommodating in working with our special requests regarding food and beverage selection. During the event, Eun coordinated the details and was fabulous in making adjustments to our schedule when necessary. The staff at the Grand Historic was prompt in answering questions and providing updates during the planning process. Salmon, steak, crabcakes, etc. were all very good! We wanted the party to be longer because everyone was having so much fun! Everyone was commmitted to helping us and ensuring the night ran smoothly (and it did) - helping us organize pre-wedding photographs, final details for heading to the church (including helping us with dress challenges), helping us with bustling (who is an expert on that), coordinating details with our other vendors (limo, etc), to ensuring the bride/groom were always having a great time! Review is for reception only: Ceremony held at local church. We had some challenges with the Embassy Suites for hotel rooms (not part of this review).

The Tremont was an absolute pleasure to work with. Amy was our coordinator and did an exceptional job. She was always patient, prompt with responses, and professional. Throughout the planning process, she let us see the space as many times as needed to determine logistics and worked with us to make sure everything fit within our budget. At first, the venue seems a little pricey, especially with their food & beverage minimums, but when you factor in all of the things that are included in the package, it's very reasonably priced for a city wedding. The day of the wedding, everything was set up exactly how I imagined, with little direction. Nina was my bridal attendant. She was entertaining and accommodating. The rest of the Tremont staff was fantastic and so personable. The entire night I had guests telling me that it was like they were at a celebrity wedding. If anything went wrong that day, I was not privy to it and I appreciated that very much. I didn't actually eat any dinner at the reception, but at the tasting, the food was all very good. I did hear from a few of my guests after the fact that their steaks were a little rare. The portions are plentiful. Compared to the venue, the hotel was just okay. When our families arrived to check in on Friday, we had to wait over a half hour for a valet to pick up our cars, and another hour for any bellhop to get our luggage. They also mixed up rooms and gave some guests keys to rooms that were already taken by other people. However,when the problems arose, they were quick to remedy. I stayed in the two bedroom suite, which had plenty of room for my bridal party to get ready.

I LOVED this venue. Once I visited, I tried looking at other venues to keep an open mind, but nothing compared. One of the best things is that they don't nickle and dime you at the Tremont. Other places may seem less expensive at face value, but you need to stop and look at how much is INCLUDED in the Tremont price. Their "basic" package is truly excellent, though pricey. The nice thing is you know your total going into it, instead of the budget magically inflating as you add things because their "standard" isn't something you would put out for a picnic let alone a wedding. So in that sense, the Tremont is truly a good bang for your buck. Our coordinator, Lauren Flaig, was the only reason I decided to not be Type A for once and let someone take over for me. Everything went off without a hitch. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from my guests on everything from the decor to the location to the food! Other great things - 1)They are super flexible. I have a friend who only eats pasta with butter - done. Friends with allergies - done. Everyone got whatever meal they needed, no questions asked. 2)You don't need decorations! You can get by with VERY simple decor because the place is just that beautiful, which saves a ton of money 3) It is attached to the hotel - your guests never have to leave the place once they get there, and the hotel rooms are fabulous.

Excellent experience from the initial meeting to see the facilities until the final ending of an incredible reception. On site wedding coordinator did a great job with everything and after meeting with her we decided not to hire an outside coordination which turned out to be a wise decision. Roman Strada room for cocktails is very elegant and ornate and required no additional flowers which was a savings to us. Food was excellent, service was great, very accommodating to dietary restrictions and creative to substitute gluten free choices that guests assumed were just a culinary twist to the ordinary. Corinthian Room for the dinner and dancing is equally as elegant and the service throughout the night was superb. Bride, groom and guests could not be happier that the Tremont Grand was selected for the venue.

Overall, we were over the moon with our Tremont experience. Our wedding planner, Brandon, rocked, from the time he was assigned as our planner to the day of execution. Even finding my husband green gum prior to the ceremony! Brandon was flexible and super responsive and checked in to make sure we were both feeling good about our experience. We got married in the Edinburgh Room - loved the warm atmosphere. Had our dinner in the Corinthian Room - nothing but elegance. Our guests were impressed with the rooms (all suites), professional and friendly hotel service and the food, which was excellent. We were a little worried this fall about follow-through -- signed our contract in September for a March wedding, then got a little silent treatment from the catering office despite 4 emails over a 6 week period to try to confirm a tasting date. However, our tasting date was set for November and our planner Brandon took over, we had super smooth sailing. And the site is beautiful, so our pictures turned out terrific! Would recommend the Tremont to any couple who want a professional, turn-key, worry-free, elegant glorious day!

Preparing for the wedding was stressful at times due to lack of responsiveness, front desk disorganization, and changing management with the rehearsal dinner restaurant within the Tremont. On the day of the wedding, however, everything was flawless. Lauren and her team attended to our every need and paid close attention to details so we had no need to worry. From a catering perspective, we enjoyed the tasting experience and meeting the chef. The cocktail hour appetizers were perfect and we hear that the entrees were delicious...though it was a blur for my husband and I. Lauren made sure that we had entrees waiting in the hotel room for after the reception. Thank you Lauren!

The venue was a perfect setting for our wedding. We loved the Roman Strada. The value for a complete wedding program with a small amount of guest was great. The tasting was a lot of fun. All of our guests were impressed with the venue and our photographs are great. The staff were very accomodating and allowed us to extend the cocktail hour and offer more menu choices for the same pric. The Grand is cnnected to the Tremont Plaza so our guests stayed there and we spent our first night there as a married couple as part of the package. It was very romantic and low stress.
