We had our wedding reception at the Embassy Suites on 04/23/16 and everything was absolutely perfect and exceeded our expectations. We booked the venue because we fell in love with Jeraldine who had been so helpful and responsive with our initial questions. Jeraldine was our wedding coordinator throughout the whole process, and she went above and beyond. She was quick to respond to all of the questions we had, and she was just lovely to work with. I am so grateful for Jeraldine as well as the entire hotel staff for making our wedding weekend so wonderful. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding, I highly recommend the Embassy Suites!Sent on 05/08/2016

So glad I chose to have my special here!!! Not only is the hotel beautiful, the staff team are great. Lee Rodriguez the event coordinator is awesome! She is super quick to respond to emails and did anything she could to help out. The day of the wedding she was there to help calm me down when something didn't go as planned.Maria was super accommodating with our room blocks and even extended the great discount for our family members who booked late. The chef was excellent!! He allowed us to make small changes to personalize menu items and even took his time out after dinner during the reception to thank and congratulate us. Highly recommend!!!Sent on 03/23/2018
