I want to break this review into 2 parts. Part one is my stay at the hotel. Part two will focus on a wedding there. My overall rating for the hotel is based on the hotel itself and not the wedding as most people are not looking for a wedding venue here. Part one- The hotel is a historic hotel... More

My daughter's wedding and reception was at the Hotel Baker. There is not one negative thing I can say about the day. In fact, the wedding was wonderful! First of all, the place is beautiful, and unique. The ceremony was in the rose garden which was lovely! The flowers were in full bloom which made it so picturesque. The cocktail... More

The Hotel Baker is a historic hotel. Unfortunately it did have quite some too historic tendencies. The lighting was poor in the room, and we didn't get the room we had reserved, but other than that, it was nice. The bed was alright, but the maids obviously don't know how to make a bed, it was poorly done and a... More

quaint hotel in 30,000 population Chicago Suburb. Reservation included Suite room with large bedroom and "smallish" connected sitting area. Staff generally nice not a ton of interaction needed. 2 night stay during town festival called "Riverfest". Plenty of activities around even if the town festival wasn't there. Biggest down side is no hotel parking. You are reliant on street parking... More

I stayed here with my fiancé for my sister's wedding. The wedding was in the Rainbow Room and it was gorgeous! I really enjoyed how the hotel utilizes all of the entertainment rooms for events and weddings. The hotel has a vintage, romantic feel to it. The rooms were very clean and spacious. Overall we really enjoyed staying here. Unfortunately... More

We'd stayed at this hotel before but it had been a few years. The lobby, elevators and guest room hallways all look as if time had stopped in 1928. The guest rooms were quite historic (or dated, depending on your point of view), too. The bed was comfy, but the sofa bed (like nearly all of them) was not great... More

Our room was fairly ordinary but we had a great view of the Fox River, wonderful drapes that blocked the light perfectly, and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. We expected the included breakfast, billed as "continental," to be just coffee and sweet rolls, but it was actually a wonderful spread that included fluffy scrambled... More

We have stayed several times at Hotel Baker and my wife and I look reward to it each and every time. Restaurant staff is attentive and breakfast is always fresh. Rooms are unique and inviting. At. Charles is a wonderful town to visit and Hotel Baker is a wonderful place to spend the night!
