We had a wonderful experience with the Tremont. Brandon was a great planner to work with. He was prompt, patient and very attentive to our requests. The event itself was more beautiful than I expected and the staff were wonderful. Thanks to the Tremont for helping us have an amazing event!

The Tremont Grand is an absolutely gorgeous venue! We did our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception there (each in a different room) and everyone said it was beautiful. Our planner, Brandon, was a life-saver on wedding day, letting us know where we had to be and when. He was completely organized and did a great job of relaxing everyone in the bridal party. Anything we needed, he immediately handled in the most professional way. The cost of the entire evening was a bit more than I originally wanted to pay, but Brandon customized a package for us so that the price was not as high as it could have been. We made some last minute changes to our menu, and they were totally accommodating. My only complaint about the Tremont involved the staff of the Tremont Plaza (the attached hotel where my bridal party and guests stayed). My interactions with the front desk were less than satisfactory. I found the staff varying from inept to merely adequate to totally incompetent. One woman was downright rude to me and my maid of honor. However, where the front desk staff were lacking, the bell hop and valet staff were absolutely the BEST! They got to know my bridal party by name and were constantly pleasant and upbeat! So it was a mixed bag at the Tremont Plaza.
The Grand responded with the following comments:
Thank you Jennifer for sharing your special day with us. We are honored to be a part of your wonderful memories. The Tremont Plaza has a new Hotel Manager and we have implemented new service standards. We hope you get an opportunity to visit and meet the new friendly team. Congratulations!

The Tremont is a stunningly gorgeous location! Great for pictures. It is a little pricey, but they were very flexible with their price packaging. The service was good, the food was delicious, and the decor is lovely. Our coordinator, Brandon Casey, was super! He made sure everything ran smoothly, even when we had some last-minute changes. I would highly recommend the Tremont and I would ask for Brandon!

Everyone was very responsive to our needs and concerns. Even the housekeeping was great! I'd highly recommend this venue.

This place is one of the last architectural treasures of Baltimore. It takes you back to a different time of decadence,class and wealth. This place made everyone whom attended the wedding feel "rich" from what I was told. I wish I could attach the pictures of our wedding for to see how beautiful and elegant it looked. Especially with the lighting that we chose for the reception it gave a warm intimate feeling to the large Corinthian room. The staff was very attentive and helpful. It was a bit bumpy in the early planning phases. However, they became very personal and attentive to our needs once we touched based with the wedding coordinator the venue offered. Tamera Taylor has done a marvelous job in reassuring us that everything will be perfect and she did everything in her power to make it happen. What I enjoyed is that I didn't have to chase her down and she even made suggestions about things that didn't think of, and anticipated our needs. Coming from a previous hotel sales management background, I was impressed with her and wish I had her on my team back when I was in the business. She showed passion and concern for us and was really flexible to work with us. The banquet captain Zena was great, and the audio-visual gentleman Richard went out of his way to try different lighting concepts to help us to capture the right lighting they we wanted for our wedding and explained how it complimented the room. We booked at a good time and planned very far in advance which I felt helped with our price and the what we were able to do. We had the Edinburgh Ballroom for the ceremony, The Roman Strada for the cocktail hour and the Corinthian for the Reception. We booked our wedding for Sunday right before Labor Day 2014;and we booked in October of 2013. This venue is expensive but it would be best to book in advance to find the best prices. I'm very satisfied!

When my husband and I decided to venture out of D.C. for our wedding venue, Tremont Grand wasn't in our list of places to look at. We drove to Baltimore to check out the Peabody Library and the Walters Museum, and dropped by the Tremont (at the last minute) only to check out the hotel as a possible place of accommodation for our guests. We were introduced to Julie Brown, who is a director there and was pleasantly surprised when she walked us around the historic building. It was incredible and their options definitely fell under our budget! Julie was so sweet throughout the whole process of decision making and she answered all our questions with details, we felt confident that it was the place for us to have our big day. Lauren was assigned as my coordinator, and she was wonderful throughout the process, yet I won't say she's super flexible with things. But she tried her best to accommodate our needs/requests. On the day of the wedding, our guests were blown away by the grandeur of each room (ceremony in the Edinburgh Hall, cocktail hour in Roman Strada, and reception in the Corinthian Room). The wait staff were incredibly professional and nice. They brought us our dinner first before our guests are served so we have a chance to eat during the bestman/MOH/father of the bride speeches. Then when we were gone to have the father/daughter dance and mother/son dance, they brought us new plates because the ones they gave us got cold during the dance! Who does that? They were so thoughtful! All of my guests were very pleased with the service and the food, and we heard so much compliments about how everything went so smoothly. My guests were too full to finish the cake b/c the portion of the steak entree was huge (cake made by chef Kevin at the Tremont -- btw, I gave them a picture of the cake I wanted and they made it exactly like the picture, I was so happy!) but they did finish most of it. A lot of our guests told us that it was one of the nicest and most beautiful weddings they've been to, and how much they loved the venue. OH!!!! Almost forgot -- when we came back to the honeymoon suite after the night was over, our master bedroom was decorated with roses, chilled champagne, and chocolate-dipped strawberries!!!! Go with Tremont and you can rest assure they will make your day truly special.

I absolutely fell in love with this venue from the moment I walked in. Every room is just beautiful and makes for a wonderful background for photos. Brandon was our planner and he did a fabulous job. He took care of the little details that I did not even think about. All my guests loved the food. I definitely recommend the Tremont.

I had the pleasure of assisting in coordinating and attending a wedding at the Tremont Grand. The architecture and interior design are very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. We found the Oriental room inspiring and refreshing as we looked for colors to incorporate into our color scheme. Each room's interior design was classy yet not overdone. And the way Brandon Casey made our vision come alive was AMAZING! His expertise showed when we walked into the reception and the linens just popped! The guests ooohed and ahhed so we know we got it right. While this was my first time assisting with such an event, Brandon made it a breeze. Really cool to talk to, easy on the eyes, and very knowledgeable. He kept the show going and coached me through MCing the reception. This was a beautiful and well coordinated event. Thanks Brandon and staff.

Incredible rooms! We had three ballrooms for our ceremony (Roman Strada), cocktail hour (Marble Room) and reception (Corinthian Ballroom). The food was wonderful, the service was very attentive, everything was very elegant. Plus we had an upgrade to the most incredible suite for our wedding night. Pre-wedding planning we had some slow responses to emails or calls. We also had a problem with the authorized credit card payments not actually being processed and it took several calls and several weeks before our credit card was charged. In the end the day went off without a hitch – or at least we didn’t notice anything. We really felt that the entire staff, down to the busboys – really cared that everything was perfect and we had a fantastic experience.

The night of our wedding was phenomenal and better than we expected. The service was the best we have experienced in Baltimore. I would have had it there again in a heartbeat. The only reason I didn't give the Tremont all 5 stars is because we had a lot of issues with our main contact there....who quit one week before our wedding. I was relieved when she quit and hopefully they would never hire her back! Her replacement seemed on the ball and made sure everything was smooth. I loved it there!!!

Overall, I cannot say enough about having my wedding at the Tremont Grand. The place is beautiful and they bent over backwards to accomodate us on the day of our wedding. This included: assisting our wedding planner with bringing the gifts to the room, allowing us full reign of the Tremont Grand for photos, making sure we actually ate at our wedding, returning all unused wedding decorations, accomodating our room needs, finding a spot for me (bride) and the bridesmaids to hide out before the ceremony (very important to me), being by our sides at the reception, assisting vendors, etc. The site is grogeous and if you chose the Tremont Grand, you will be thrilled with the venue and staff. The Roman Strada room is beautiful and needs very little in the way of decorations. They also have a grand piano that they let you use for the cermony. I worked with Delia for the event preparations. She was a little slow with getting back to us in the beginning but the weeks leading up to the event she really shined. She was there the entire time and was an incredible resource. Delia helps us make sure our wedding day was perfect. The food is what really won us over and made the event a step above the rest. The chef was very nice and actually came to deliver and describe the food during our tasting. It is beautiful laid out on the plates with generous portions. We chose the filet/crab cake and the sea bass as our main course. Delicious. The cocktail food was also incredible. But, I was disappointed that when they brought the wedding party food during our photo session, which was held separately from the regular cocktail hour, that the menu did not include all of the food provided to us that our guests received. The Tremont Hotel (ajoining) has an incredible bridal suite which allowed me to host a bridal luncheon. Great wide open space with excellent views of the city. We order from Plaza deli (downstairs) and had a great spread. Also, the doormen are very professional and always there to help you! A couple of things that upset me about the process are as follows: We met initially with Danielle in October 2009 to tour the site and learn more about our options. We went the week-end after we were engaged. Once we decided that we like the Tremont Grand, it was very difficult getting a hold of Danielle to find out availability in 2009. I think she was trying to push us off until 2010. She was very vague about the dates. I finally got really upset/stressed and made an appointment with her again. It was only after I had explained to her that I was a CPA and therefore January - April 2010 was not an option for us, did we finally get her full attention. Once we had a date, our next step was to meet with Danielle and sign the contracts. The room we selected for our reception, The Corinthan, has a minimum food & beverage allowance. Since we were picking the Ruby Rate for our package, we knew that we would be able to hit it that with the minimum number of our guests so it was not a problem. When looking over the contract, I noted the room mimunim seemed different than what we had been told by Danielle. I asked her about it and she assured me it was the number she had told us as a minium to rent the room. After signing the contract & reviewing it closer, we noted that instead of the minimum, Danielle inserted the our maximum number of guests of 150 times the Ruby Rate instead of the lower minimum to rent the room. This forced us to make sure we had 150 guests attend instead of our range which was 120-150. This made me extremely upset as I asked her face-to-face and felt she had slipped one over on us to the tune of $6,300! This is when we decided that we could not do this alone as there will always be traps and things to beware of when negotiating. We also thought it was very ridiculous to charge us sales tax and gratuity on the room set-up fee of $2,500 we paid for the Roman Strada room. The Tremont says that this room is not regularyly used for events so to utilize it you must pay $2,500 for them to move the sofas and organize the chairs for you. Looking back on it now, it seems like a majority of the people on this website used the Roman Strada room. But beware of the wording on this part of the contract as the sales/gratutity it is an additional $600. When you are spending $35,000 for your wedding you would think they would not have to nickle-n-dime you on this fee but when Julie was asked, they would not budge. This was also something we missed and another reason to have a wedding planner assist you with your wedding. (If you are in Maryland, Kate Beck from KateBeckEvents.com is fabulous!!!) Overall we were really please dispite these issues and would have it there again in a heart beat! Plus, we learned a lot and hope this review helps others!
