We had our wedding at the Verve on 4.25.15 and it honestly EVERYTHING exceeded our expectations.
We immediately fell in love with the Verve upon first visit and knew we just had to have our wedding there. The venue is a combination of funky, modern and classy. We fell in love with all the little fun touches – fun house mirrors, old phone booth, barber chairs etc. Deborah our coordinator was amazing - she was there to help with every single detail, always had a solution/answer to anything I threw at her. She was always present /engaged from planning to execution. The tasting blew us away. Fast forward to our wedding day. We had family check in to the hotel on Friday (as did I the bride) and the front of house staff were truly friendly, helpful and always smiling all weekend long. The wedding day was absolutely perfect – there were amazing little details that the staff at the Verve did that made everything that much more perfect. My husband and I are still saying how perfect our day was . . .the food was even better than the tasting. The entire staff (Lou, Matt, Deb and everyone there) all went above and beyond throughout the entire event! Matt even had a drink waiting for my father at the cocktail hour. There was no detail that was left undone. We can honestly say our night was FLAWLESS. All in all we have zero complaints but THOUSANDS OF PRAISES. We were truly amazed at Deb, Matt and their entire staff, they made us feel as if we were part of their family from start to finish. All of our guests are still raving about how nice everyone was from front to back of house, how lovely the accommodations were, and how amazing the food was. We highly recommend the Verve to any couple looking to have a truly perfect and fairytale wedding! There is no stone that goes unturned with this staff. KUDOS to the Verve for having top notch venue and an even better staff. My husband and I can’t thank you enough!!!
Thank you so much, Michael and Erin B

When we first started looking at wedding venues… hotel ballrooms were not high on the list (or actually on the list at all). The Verve, was not like your typical hotel. From the moment you walk in the door, you know it’s different. Not a standard, outdated hotel… but a fun funky space (with extremely happy doormen). We had our wedding in the Constellation Ballroom and everything turned out perfect. Deborah and Michelle were there every step of the way to answer questions and help figure things out. They were genuinely excited about helping us with our wedding. The day of the wedding went smoothly. Matt and his team took care of setting up everything and it all came out just how I imagined. His team catered to our every need and were friendly, polite and attentive to all of our guests. One thing that people overlook when planning their weddings in remote locations is the transportation home. We didn’t have to worry about it. Our guests enjoyed every minute of the wedding and especially enjoyed not having to drive home when the wedding was over. Simply had to go up to their very nice rooms. I know I enjoyed my room just being an elevator ride away. Bottom line, the food was great, the service was excellent and my whole day turned out as planned with no glitches. I would recommend the Verve for any wedding or event.

The staff at the Verve treated our event and our family and friends as though they were their own. Please go back and re-read the first statement and understand that it is not an embellishment in any regard.
The level of service provided was truly impressive. From the shuttle drivers to the concierge, the front-of-house staff was exceptionally friendly and dealt with our entire stressed-out, wacky, and demanding family with grace and charm.
The Verve is a unique establishment whose decor cannot be compartmentalized into any particular style or era. A fluorescent portrait of Salvador Dalí gazes upon a set of barbershop chairs in the event hall; a spotlight in the main lobby loops a strangely hypnotic mix of old cartoons and Vaudeville bits. The assemblage of odd bits-and-bobs is strangely cohesive in its irreverent splendor.
The Verve's utter mastery of creating compelling, delicious food was one of the strongest motivators in our choice of venue. The menus provided were fantastic: lovingly crafted food we actually wanted to eat and serve at a price we could manage. Simply eating in the hotel's restaurant was all the evidence I needed that these folks loved food: where else can one eat hanger steak while watching Julia Child episodes play upon the walls? The food that was served to our guests was nothing short of phenomenal, and generously portioned for the high quality of the ingredients.
The Verve truly impressed us with the level of dedication of its event coordinators. Deb went so far above and beyond our expectations that she merits special mention. She listened to us, was motivated to figure out who we were as a couple, bonded with us, and made sure that we got exactly what we wanted with every facet of the wedding. She made herself available for contact at all times and was immensely helpful. We called two days before the wedding (on Thanksgiving!) to add uplighting -- no problem! This venue is truly something special, made that way by its staff.

I visited this hotel a while back, because I was doing makeup on a bride who chose to get ready there. The room spacious, well lit and clean. I had to ask the staff for something and immediately, it arrived. I was just impressed by the Crowne Plaza in general having stayed in a few of them myself over the years. Denfinetly a thumbs up in my opinion.
A beautiful facility, professional staff, accommodating and attentive. We highly recommend The Verve!
