Baker, who was married with two adult sons, was found naked on the floor with a belt around his neck, the Associated Press reported.
Surveillance footage showed him leaving the room twice and returning with a different man each time. A man, believed to be Baez, was later seen leaving with Baker's backpack and wallet.
Homicide captain James Clark told Philly.com on Thursday that Baez "gave a full confession."
"During whatever was going on inside of the room, he made the decision he was going to kill and rob him," Clark said.
Baez, who police said is homeless, does not have a lawyer listed.
