Connected to the chapel is a get-ready room, where the wedding party can convene prior to a ceremony for up to 150 wedding guests. After the ceremony, guests can retire to a cocktail hour on the Presidential Patio, a penthouse patio adjoining the Presidential Suite. The patio has a 360-degree view of downtown Santa Fe, the mountains, and the sunset horizon. Up to 375 guests can be seated in the Anasazi Ballroom for a banquet, and 550 for a wedding reception. With approximately 4,500 square feet of space, the ballroom can also be divided into two rooms, with one featuring a wood-burning fireplace. The largest event space is the Eldorado Grand Ballroom, a 7,000-square-foot ballroom that can host 700 for a reception or 580 for a banquet. The 15-foot ceiling is beamed and coffered, with traditional wainscoting and custom lighting fixtures, as well as LEDs implemented into the ceiling lighting. The Zia Ballroom is a more private area, with 2,200 square feet of space that can be divided into three different rooms. The last area is the Concourse, a grand hallway that extends from the spa to the Anasazi Ballroom, with room for up to 300 guests.

My husband and I got married in Santa Fe, NM on 10/15/2016 and had our reception at Eldorado Hotel & Spa. First off, Dan Liss was amazing to work with! He was very responsive to all of our emails, calls, questions, etc. He went above and beyond for us and we couldn't have asked for a better person to work with for such an important event. We had our cocktail hour on the balcony of the Presidential Suite and our reception was in the ballroom downstairs. Everything from the food/drinks to the service was top notch! Our guests were very pleased with the rooms and the overall service of the hotel staff. Josh was so awesome in assisting our guests with any of their room needs and Sylvia was great in helping us get everything we needed for our after the wedding party. If we could give this hotel more than 5 stars, we would! Eldorado is the best place to stay in Santa Fe and definitely the best place to have your wedding and/or reception!Sent on 10/24/2016

Eldorado Hotel & Spa's reply:Your ears must be burning...I talked to Marisa the florist and last night and she is so happy about the possibility of also working with you. We both discussed how wonderful and fun you are to work with. Thank you for the compliment!

High Quality customer service & location
I did not end up booking this location but if I was booking based off the Venue/Catering Manager, I would have 100% picked this Place. David Stone is seriously the best. He was so helpful and informative and made us feel so comfortable. He also was very open minded and excited about all of our ideas which I really appreciated. He will go above and beyond on your wedding day to make sure everything goes well. He has many years of experience but it is also just in his nature. The Eldorado Hotel is beautiful! They have many options for indoor and outdoor wedding options. They have a beautiful balcony that has the best view in town of the city but also the mountains. Highly recommend. You can not go wrong with this place, and David will make the experience that much better! Especially if you are doing destination!Sent on 11/17/2018
