We stayed at the Hotel Baker 1 night this past weekend. We were in town for a wedding and the only room available was the Penthouse Suite which was $495 per night. When you arrive at the Hotel Baker you will immediately discover that they do not have valet parking nor is there parking at the hotel. The hotel is... More

Our room was nice and comfortable but for the money i felt the place could have been a little more polished!?...dated TV's,wood work,rooms..etc.. nothing major though.The one complaint i do have is that the...

Hotel Baker was exactly what it promised. It is a beautiful, historic hotel located in the heart of downtown St. Charles! The entryway is cozy, keeping in the theme of the older hotels and the desk appears to be the original hotel desk. Our room was a simple king room with a view of the Fox River. The bed was... More

This hotel was charming and the amenities were fabulous. I don't understand the negitive reviews. Very large rooms, clean, you get a delicious cookie. The room included two bath robes, very large closet area, bathroom had everything that you could possibly need including very soft, plush towels. Loved the turtle ottoman and the view of the river was beautiful. Very... More

We stayed at the Hotel Baker for a night, and rented three rooms for a retreat. Its a nice historic hotel, but a little pricey for the location and amenities. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, and helped us check in early for one room and check out late to maximize our work time. They left delicious cookies... More

We got the balcony spa suite which I expected to be nice and it was okay . The room smelled like mildew. The bedding was messed up. There were cigarettes all over the balcony. The staff acted like it was their first day on the job. No valet parking. No late room service or some BS. No coffee pot but... More

We were planning a wedding for my daughter more than a year in advance. Hotel Baker did have the June 16th day available in the Waterfront Room. This seemed perfect since we are familiar with the Hotel, it did seem to meet our needs. Upon speaking with one of the wedding planners, I let her know that this was very... More

The Baker Hotel takes you back to an earlier time when staying at an hotel was an experience. The staff is very attentive and went out of thier way to make sure everything top notch. The dining options both within the hotel and surrounding area are excellent. I got a chance to see the penthouse, it has two floors with... More

I booked the Baker for their New Year's Eve package for myself & my fiance. We were celebrating the New Year and his birthday on the 31st of December. The package included Dinner, Dancing, etc. I also invited another couple to join us in the celebration and was definitely embarrased and disappointed. The experience will definitely be one to remember.... More
