    Wonderful wedding venue with service, charm, and history

    My wife and I recently had our wedding at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Our day was absolutely perfect and we thank Lynn for all her expertise and planning with our wedding. The food and drink were great, the rooms were comfy, the venue was beautiful, but most especially the service was above and beyond excellent! We received many compliments from our guests on how polite and professional the hotel staff was during the wedding. They really went out of their way to make sure that everyone was satisfied. Thank you so much for making our wedding the perfect day!

    Dream Wedding!

    No one from our party has been able to get over how absolutely perfect The Cosmopolitan Hotel & Restaurant was for our wedding! If you're looking for a rustic but classy feel with total privacy, plenty of space, gorgeous architecture, and fantastic service, this is your place. The staff were all fantastic and made us feel like family, and the events coordinator Lynn Simpson is a total pro and incredibly sweet - planning was a breeze. We opted to rent out all 10 rooms at the hotel so that we were the only ones on property and our guests loved the freedom to be able to enjoy the upper veranda and retreat to the guest rooms for a moment if needed. We had a buffet and the food was fantastic! It all tasted very homemade, not the frozen hotel food you get at bigger properties. I think my favorite part was that the venue was so gorgeous on its own that we hardly had to spend any money on decor! We just did simple candles in glass cylinders with a little greenery for centerpieces, and brought some picture frames and mason jars with candles for the lounge tables by the bar and done! My goals for our wedding were a to keep it low-maintenance (venue to provide food, furniture, linens, etc), have a beautiful outdoor venue, and stick to a fairly frugal budget - The Cosmo helped me meet all of these goals without any quality spared. This place is a total hidden gem and we couldn't be happier to have chosen it for our big day!
