Beyond Amazing! Eileen was able to bring NJ to CT, just the way I wanted!
My husband and I looked at several venues and really wanted a hotel venue for the convenience of all of our traveling guests. We weren’t impressed by any of the big chain hotel ballroom options as they really felt like conference rooms and some other local competitors felt much more rundown. As soon as we walked in, we were impressed and my husband said to me “you’re sold already” to which I said, “I really like it but not yet.” Then we met Eileen and I was sold. She knew exactly what I was looking for with the big NJ style cocktail hour and she and the chef created a taco bar and mashed potato/French fry bar that I heard were amazing (sadly I didn’t get to taste them myself with how busy we got with talking to our guests). Our guests were all raving about the food, the service and the look of the hotel. Eileen was super honest about what she recommended and what was unnecessary with the packages and really helped me make decisions on just about everything including flower arrangements (shout out to Rita’s Floral Touch who was almost amazing and knows the venue extremely well) and table arrangements and all sorts of little stuff. Some days I think she was just my therapist which all brides could definitely use sometimes! She even worked her magic and found a way to have an outside ceremony even though it had rained all morning and the ground was wet. She really went above and beyond. All of the staff were helpful and available and I have to recommend the brunch for the morning after as well. The food was excellent and just kept coming. A couple days after the wedding, my husband said he was disappointed we didn’t get a picture with Eileen before she left which just tells you how much he enjoyed working with her (even though as a typical male he didn’t want much involvement with wedding planning). We are already looking for an excuse to have another event here. I’m thinking baby shower or first birthday for our future children. You won’t regret booking here!Sent on 11/28/2018

We needed a venue with hotel accommodations for traveling guests. We wound up getting accommodations a whole lot more! The services of every person I came in contact with over 16 months was exceptional. I can't say enough kind words about Eileen! She is AMAZING! A professional thru and thru. She listened and made suggestions to help make the day wonderful. An event of this magnitude took a lot of planning! You need to get along with the people in charge. That was so easy to do! There were some areas we needed help with selection and others that I was"set in stone" about. Eileen was kind and considerate to every question and concern. Then out of almost 400 guests we had 2 teeny complaints about checking in to hotel (they were so minor--barely count as "complaint"). Over 300 guests raved about the food, service and comfort! They were pleased with location and surprised with food. At first some questioned, "who selected the menu?" as it was not typical wedding food! Well...those guests and MANY more can't stop thanking us for allowing them to share in our special day!Sent on 05/04/2016
They are thanking us!
That alone should stand as feedback for this venue!

The Ethan Allen Hotel will be the venue for our daughter’s wedding in December but we also (just last week) hosted a Bridal Shower/Tea Party/Brunch for her at the hotel. The Conservatory — a bright, sunny room with French doors opening to the courtyard patio (with lovely gardens and a gazebo) — was the perfect setting for the brunch. Aside from the lovely venue, the service and food (especially the Mimosa bar) were excellent and the food & beverage presentation was lovely. We fully appreciated Eileen’s helpful and creative input on all matters from food to décor and look forward to collaborating with her and the staff again this winter. I cannot say enough good things about Eileen, who is an absolute delight to work with! I highly recommend the Ethan Allen Hotel to anyone who wishes to have a memorable and worry-free event. The staff have it down to an art. The execution is seamless. The décor is classic but fresh and modern. Whatever vision you’re dreaming of for your event, you can count on Eileen and the staff at the Ethan Allen Hotel to make it happen!Sent on 08/17/2018
