    My husband and I had an AMAZING wedding reception experience at the Crowne Plaza Cabana. Hristo did absolutely everything he could to make our day as stress-free and smooth as possible. Throughout the entire planning process, he was always very quick to answer any questions, connect us with vendors, and alleviate any worries. As we got closer to our wedding date, he made sure that we set aside time to go over all the details (from room layout, vendor information, individual guest's special dietary needs, etc). Both the dinner and the morning brunch were delicious. The entire staff was very courteous and welcoming to our guests, which we really appreciated because most of our wedding guests were from out of town. They truly went out of their way by all means possible to ensure that we (as well as our families and guests) had a wonderful wedding experience. We could not have chosen a better venue for our big day!! Thank you so much for everything that you did for us!!

    I was honored to be invited to take part in a Wedding Fair Show 2 weeks ago, at the Crown Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto, Ca. Which I enjoyed very much working on all the new brides to be with Hair & Make-up. Wow what a beautiful Hotel with the Hollywood flair and detail, which in 1962 the movie star Doris Day owned. The wedding fair was a Big hit. Diane did a wonderful job putting it all together. The Cabana Hotel is a stunning place to have a wedding or any special event. I highly recommend the Crown Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto, Ca. 5 star

    My trio entertained at the Crowne Plaza Cabana's wedding fair last Sunday. What a sensational afternoon! Highlights featured a dazzling fashion show and an informative panel discussion about wedding preparations a bride can "do herself". In addition, dozens of top event professionals displayed their services and spoke with guests circulating in the hotel's gorgeous ballroom. It was wonderful to be part of an outstanding showcase and work with the hotel's Catering and Events team, particularly Diana Wittenbrock and Sherleen Eng. Because too many shows at other facilities are so-so these days, this one really stands out. Every presentation was superb, showing what a difference it makes when EVERYONE involved pays special attention to the finest details. My band works at the Crowne Plaza Cabana often, and we've come to expect a flawless celebration every time.
