We got married on the rooftop (Sky Garden) just a couple weeks ago. The weather cleared up and was amazing!! Hotel had their own flowers the looked beautiful in our ceremony.Sent on 10/03/2019
The entire hotel staff, coordinators, chefs, catering coordinators etc. OUTSTANDING! They helped us through the entire process from day 1 to the wedding day.
During the wedding day, they helped with queuing the wedding party to go down the aisle, setting stuff up and getting things for me. They all just went above and beyond.
Thank you everyone for making a perfect day! All of my guest complimented how great everything looked and how well the operation went.
