    Kasia has been amazing to work with and super accommodating and flexible. She's very professional and has a ton of experience on her plate. She also didn't put too much pressure on us and gave us the facts and the best value out of all the other hotels we were looking at. We're very excited to have our wedding here!

    We used CP for our wedding reception. We worked with Kasia who was flexible with what we wanted. There was a lack of response at times and she forgot some details but me and the wedding coordinator I had stayed on top of things so that it ran pretty smoothly the night of. The food was pretty good - everyone loved the salmon, the chicken was a little dry for some but I think it's hard to cook for that many people. The veggie plate was good too. We did the wedding package and the cake was delicious and the florist that came with the package did a beautiful job. CP is a more affordable option in the bay area and they recently remodeled the hotel so everything looked super nice. The one tricky part was there was another event next to ours and the only time an issue came up was during the cocktail hour, some of them came over to our side and ate the food! The mother of the groom regulated that, but we were told it wouldn't be a problem - and it was. Overall, everyone and a great time and it ran smoothly, but there was some hiccups that could have been prevented.
