I coordinated our wedding reception primarily with Lindsey Jacobs (Catering Manager) and Mauricio Cortez (Banquet Manager). Both were extremely professional, accommodating, and friendly. The reason I went with the Crowne Plaza, (p.s., they also manage events for the nearby Holiday Inn) was because of their great reviews on weddingwire.com and because they provided most of the things needed to throw a party so I didn't have to scramble around to find extra vendors! Lindsey was particularly awesome with helping us stick to our schedule and have everything flow. Mauricio did a fantastic job with our décor which incorporated beautiful holiday centerpieces my Mom created for each table. The backdrop, which made our sweetheart table really stand out, was meticulously put together by Mauricio and we were so pleased with how it turned out. All in all, both Lindsey and Mauricio put together a great reception - one I'm still receiving compliments on.Sent on 12/16/2016

Kimberly Peterson and Mauricio Cortez was was tremendous in the planning coordination of our wedding. We called on a very short notice request and they made it happen with no stress to myself and my wife. The communication from them prior to, throughout and after our wedding was outstanding. They even called after to ensure that our stay at the hotel after the ceremony was to our satisfaction. We truly appreciated the extra services provided and the way they went out of their way even with a short (3 day) notice. Extraordinary service! Thanks from Mr. & Mrs. JonesSent on 07/20/2015
