My fiance and I wanted a venue by the water. We decided to go to an Open House that Pier 5 had as it's venue rental was reasonable and it was on the water. It wasn't long after we left the Open House and speaking with the coordinator, at the time, that we looked at each other and said, "This is the one!". We decided to host our reception in the Harbor Club room as it provides such an unique view of the city and is quite a hidden gem at sunset. We booked the venue back in February 2016 for this May 13, 2017. Sometime around the holidays, our original coordinator left for another job and Chris Agostino came into the picture. My fiance and I were both a little anxious, at first, as we had developed quite a relationship and rapport with our original coordinator. We weren't even five minutes into our first meeting with Chris, and we felt completely at ease; it was like he was our coordinator right from the beginning! As the months approached towards our big day, Chris was very responsive and professional in his correspondence with us (and our families!). Everything went smoothly on our wedding day thanks to Chris and his team's superior customer service. The next morning our family and friends could not stop raving about the views, energetic atmosphere & amazing taste (and portion sizes!) of the food. To summarize all the reasons why we chose (and would choose again!) Pier 5: * Unique view of Baltimore * Great customer service from Chris and his team * Excellent food and portion sizes * One stop shop (provided catering, cake, DJ, centerpieces and quality linens)

We fell in love with the venue the moment we saw it. Waterfront ceremony space outside with a natural feel. Add in the beautiful views from the very open and modern Harbor Club for the reception. We worked with Chris S. throughout most of the process, but got probably the scariest email of the whole wedding about 2 weeks before our day, when Chris S. told us that he was leaving for personal reasons and wasn't going to be there for our wedding. But I'm happy to let say that Pier 5 did a fantastic job with the transition, and Chris A. took over and made sure everything was perfect. Once settled in, Chris 2.0 replied to our last minute questions promptly and made us feel a lot more comfortable about the situation (he was right, we had nothing to worry about!) On the day of, he was calm, cool, and collected. Everything was executed exactly how we planned, without a single hitch. Molly, the bridal attendant was a fun presence and a great help during both the ceremony/photos as well as the reception. Anything we needed, she got... usually before we asked! Food was great, cake was exactly how we dreamed it, and our guests just raved about the location. Highly recommended!

The Pier 5 Hotel was the only venue we visited and we signed the contract that day. I knew instantly that was where I wanted to get married! Our wedding was less conventional and Chris worked with whatever we asked. The views from the Harbor Club ballroom on the second floor are amazing and definitely worth the money! (our wedding was during the off season, it may have been too much $ during usual wedding season) The only downside was space, the Harbor Club can only fit up to 150 people I think but we only had around 100 guests so it worked for us. We loved the convenience of the hotel handling most vendor related things, like the cake, DJ, linens, food, chairs and tables, etc. The food was absolutely delicious as was the cake! Everything met expectations.

Pier V was absolutely spectacular - they were on top of everything! The food was excellent, the view was amazing, the hotel staff was friendly and attentive. Chris handled all of the details perfectly and worked with our wedding planner well. Many of our guests said that it was one of the most amazing weddings they had ever been to!

I got married at Pier 5 on October 9th and the entire experience was beyond excellent. The hotel is in a beautiful spot, located in the heart of the Inner Harbor. The decor and vibe are fun, funky and a little quirky. It's a very unique hotel, managing to balance irreverence with elegance. Despite the looming clouds, we had our wedding ceremony in the garden outside with the lighthouse and harbor in the background. It's a beautiful spot, surrounded by trees and plants. I am so happy with how it turned out. They have a back up room in case the weather isn't in your favor, which is a bonus since most places make you do your wedding ceremony in the reception area if the weather doesn't cooperate. The Harbor Club has got to be the coolest place for a reception, it sits on the second floor and has floor to ceiling windows running nearly its entire length looking out onto the Harbor. There is also a covered balcony around it. The vibe is quirky elegance and the room is so interesting with such amazing views you really only need a little candlelight and it just glows. We received so many compliments on the venue, people found it so unique and gorgeous. Now, most importantly, the staff is AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about them, they are truly exceptional. Chris was our coordinator. Warm, friendly and organized, he was so responsive to anything we needed during the planning process and on the day of he ensured everything ran smoothly. He is so calm and knowledgeable it really helps your nerves. Jasmine helped enormously with logistics. Shay, who was the bridal hostess was excellent. She stayed with me throughout the day, kept me from worrying about the encroaching storm, and took care of me throughout the reception. The staff at our reception was all wonderful, they even came out on the dance floor with us for a few songs (Shay asked if this was OK, so if you aren't OK with them dancing just let her know).

Just phenomenal! The staff took care of everything so all we needed to do was have fun! Great food, bar, service, location! The most amazing thing of all was their flexibility. We wanted the wedding to be outdoors and although they preferred to know by 2:00 for a 5:30 ceremony, they waited until the last minute, with a huge storm rolling in. We managed to get the ceremony in, just as Chris had predicted and then it poured. It was a spectacular start to the wedding and the view from the reception room overlooked the harbor with lightening and beautiful reflections off the water. I would, and have, recommended Chris and his team at Pier 5 Hotel to everyone who asks.

There really is magic at Harbor Magic! We celebrated our daughters wedding with a reception at the Pier 5 Hotel. The Harbor Club upstairs was chosen as our venue and it was BEYOND expectation. Mr. Chris Sikora was professional, courteous and possess the personal qualities that make you,feel that your reception will be the best one at the hotel. Nothing was ever a problem and even the glitches we thought were major, he was quick to reassure us that everything will be spectacular. Our guests immediately raved about the appetizers, and compliments continued with the main course. The in house DJ was amazing. I personally have never encountered a wait staff like the one at Pier 5. They truly made everyone feel like they were the most important person there. They were so very welcoming and efficient and eager to do anything asked to make our reception fun! Great views of the harbor, even on a cloudy day. Truly a first rate reception at a first rate venue.

We are so happy to have chosen Pier 5 Hotel as the location for our wedding reception. After looking at multiple venues around Baltimore City, we were so excited to find Pier 5. At many of the other locations we would have needed our own caterer, linens, DJ, cake, chair rentals and much more but with Pier 5 we didn't need to think about any of those things when planning for our wedding. Chris Sikora was great to work with! He met with us quickly, responded to my many questions throughout the process, and made sure everything was set up the way we wanted it on the big day! He handled the ordering of our cake, the contract with the DJ company, and our room reservations as well as the block of rooms for guest reservations. Shay, our bridal hostess, was wonderful! She was available throughout the entire reception to check in on us and make sure everything we needed was taken care of. Our guests were impressed by the music, food, and mostly the views that Pier 5 offers in the reception room! The location was great since we had many out-of-town guests who came for two nights and made the weekend into a short getaway to the inner harbor. Even our stay within the hotel was great! We booked the bridal ready room the night before for myself and the bridesmaids. The room has beds that fold up into the walls which allowed for plenty of room for all of the girls to have their hair and makeup done the next morning. Overall we are very happy to have found Pier 5 and could not have had a better experience anywhere else!

Our wedding was this past weekend at Pier 5 Hotel and we were thrilled with EVERYTHING! Working with Chris Sikora, Pier 5's wedding planner, was a pleasure right from the start. He was responsive and professional making certain that all details were executed as we had requested. His staff was excellent as well and the food, service and all requests were done exactly to our liking. The venue itself is lovely with a wide view of the Inner Harbor and guests enjoyed stepping out onto the balcony for further viewing of beautiful Baltimore. As an older couple, we decided on a Sunday brunch rather than an evening celebration. We held both the ceremony and food service in the Harbor Club which worked perfectly! From the pre-ceremony cocktail "hour" right through to the cake cutting, things ran smoothly. We loved the chef's creativity for our brunch menu and the staff's ability to serve the plated meal hot and timely to all guests. We also liked the option of Music Masters, the onsite DJ. This made it easy and we were very pleased with Bill Ziemski our DJ and his assistance with the perfect selection of music. Everyone at Pier 5 really listened to how we envisioned our special day. Lastly, it was very convenient having our wedding at this location. The hotel has very nice guest rooms and the location was excellent as guests could easily walk to the Inner Harbor and Little Italy--no car needed. I cannot say enough about this venue and the professionalism of their wedding planner Chris Sikora!

Pier 5 was an absolute dream wedding location for us and the staff made the whole wedding planning experience painless, easy and fun. We had our ceremony in the Harbor East Ballroom, cocktail hour in the Harbor West Ballroom and reception in the Harbor Club Room. We started planning a little over a year before our wedding and Pier 5 was on my radar from the very beginning because I wanted to get married downtown and near/on the water. At first, it looked like Pier 5 was going to exceed our budget but after talking with someone (forgot her name, unfortunately) in their sales department, she was pretty confident that they could work within our budget and have our wedding there. Her professionalism and enthusiasm made me that more excited. We booked an appointment with Chris Sikora who showed us around the hotel and gave us all the information we needed. We were able to make it work and booked a week or so later! My parents, fiance and I had a great time working with Chris Sikora and his staff. We had many, many questions for Chris throughout the year and he always responded promptly. The staff at Pier 5 really care about their clients and it shows that they want you to have the best event ever. I was pretty calm and laid back the day of the wedding (very unlike me) and I think knowing that Chris and his staff had everything under control really attributed to my unruffled attitude. I do have to give a shout out to Melody, my bridal hostess. It was her first day of being a bridal hostess (usually she works in the catering department) and she was an absolute joy to have around . She was such a calming presence and really helped me with little tasks throughout the day. She was by my side to keep me calm, make me laugh and help me out with little things. We all loved her and I hope she continues to be a bridal hostess for future brides-they will love her! Thank you for everything Pier 5!!!! We will forever cherish the memories which were made on our wedding day!

Our daughter's wedding reception was at Pier 5 Hotel in the Harbor West Ballroom and terrace. Chris Sikora worked with us in the planning and preparation, and was ALWAYS professional and responsive. He listened to all of our requests, worked with us to give us the best options, and followed through on ALL of the details. The staff at Pier 5 was exceptional, everyone from the vallet, front desk, servers, chef, managers, our brides right hand coordinator and Chris were the best! I just cannot say enough nice things about the staff and service we and all of our guests received. Family and friends commented throughout the weekend about the staff and service, and even sent hand written notes to us with thanks. The venue was a perfect location. It is in the center of restaurants, shops and attractions, all within walking distance, and right on the water. The hotel accommodations were lovely and very comfortable. Although there was not a hotel restaurant there was breakfast available in the lobby with a range of food items from fresh fruit to made to order waffles and omelets. We had over 70 guests staying at the hotel and offered breakfast on Sunday morning. The hotel set up tables for us in the ballroom and the staff attended to us off the lobby. The reception was beautiful, the set up just as we requested, Our dinner was superb, petite fillet of beef with lump crab cakes and was prepared just right! A special thanks to the chef for working with us to make this a special meal. If you want a location in the heart of Baltimore, on the water, with access to the inner harbor, this is the place to choose. You won't be disappointed. You will be delighted and pampered and your guests will have an awesome experience. Thank you Chris and all the staff at Pier 5 Hotel, it was everything we could have hoped for and more.
