Hotel Baker is a wonderful hotel with great local restaurants. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the location is convenient. I'm a bit of a history and architecture buff, so I personally love the old building. Would definitely recommend!

True historic hotel features upgrades but keeps the integrity, charm & character that one would expect. Excellent location, walking distance to everything in town. Cozy rooms with plenty of amenities; amazing history surrounds this hotel and I so enjoy looking at the photos of the celebrities that have stayed over the years. If you are lucky enough to be there... More

I stay at the Hotel Baker when in the Saint Charles area on business. It is a wonderful change of pace from chain hotels. You get a cookie on your pillow at turn down service. They have a great bar and restaurant and the area has several great restaurants. It has a lot of the charm of the era when... More

Negatives: - no help with luggage - only self parking 2 blocks away in city parking "deck"/garage; free - complimentary breakfast with limited choices Positives: - a classic historic hotel on the National Register of Historic Places and member of Historic Hotels...

I knew it was historic but....it is old and dingy. Lobby not inviting at all. Front desk manager Jen arrogant and condescending. She needs to learn how to treat guests nicely and be respectful. She is setting a bad example for employees.

From the moment the bellman opened the door, we felt like we were stepping back to the 1930s. Hotel dripping with decor and quality from long ago. Lobby quaint and Robert at the front desk very helpful. We stayed in the Colonel Baker Suite - room 504 corner facing east overlooking the Fox River - and while dated, it's expected.... More

From Check in to Check out our experience was great. We only live 15 minutes away. I wanted to do something special for my husbands 60th birthday. The room was stunning and the spa was so nice and private. I recommend the Hotel Baker.

No parking at hotel, had to park 2 blocks away, no help with our bags. Room was large, bathroom had been renovated, however the carpet was dirty, large spots, and the paint on... More
