    Unbelievable. In every sense of the word.

    From the moment we began working with Hunter and the Crystal Plaza team, we instantly were treated like family.

    The Crystal Plaza has been in business for 100+ years, and won't let you settle for anything less than perfection. The venue, combined with their catering and ambiance, will leave your guests talking about your event for years to come.

    On the day of the event, our lead maître d', Ryan, was calm and composed at all times, and flawlessly helped us execute the day from start to finish. He was incredible to work with and had a meticulous attention to detail. At the end of the night, I felt like I was saying goodbye to my close friend.

    Ashley and “G” were outstanding attendants, catering to our every need. They were so detailed and no matter what we asked of them, they did it with a smile on their faces. They knew what we needed before we did.

    People always rave about the Crystal Plaza experience, but until someone plans and executes an event with their team, they will never truly understand the depth of that experience. Their entire team, from top to bottom, are stars.

    Run, don't walk, to book your event here. Adjust your overall budget and prioritize the venue line-item if need be.

    Don't take my word for it. Treat yourself to a tour. I PROMISE you, it will be worth every penny.
