Having been a full time resident of St. Charles from 1961-1980, and still have relatives who reside there, I have witnessed several changes to the Baker Hotel. Named after one of St. Charles more influential families, this historic property, located on the Fox river, has undergone several changes in how it has been used over the years. Always a beautiful...

Stayed one night and that was enough. The carpet was so dirty that we did not want to walk on it without shoes. Since the carpet was so stained, it made you feel the entire room was unclean. Had to unload our luggage at hotel without any assistance then park in a public parking garage blocks away.

Nice old hotel. Very nicely done and conveniently located. We were there to see a show at the Arcada theater and the hotel Baker is a short walk across the bridge. Has a hoppin' bar off the lobby. Friendly staff at the hotel and bar. The only negative I would point out is parking. They had a valet parking sign... More

When booking, I was put on hold 4 times. The room was small, dark, dingy, and not really clean. The hotel was practically empty yet we were put next to a party that played music all night. Did not sleep a wink. This place might be nice for weddings but for lodging, forget it!!!

Stayed one night for a wedding the second week in September. Hotel and setting is beautiful. Lovely old hotel on the Fox River with a beautiful garden, very scenic in a really nice town. Wedding was great, banquet rooms were set up well. It is small, so I can see where guests not there for a wedding would be put... More

Stayed 2 nights - thought it would be good having looked at the website. Arrived at the time a wedding party had 'taken over' the lobby, then told we were expected 3 nights, no had confirmation for 2 nights! Hotel are very obviously concerned with weddings than other hotel guests. Arrived back next afternoon at 4.30pm and room not serviced... More

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
