Awesome - so supportive the planning process was made so easy due to the attention to detail given by this team!
Alyssa was AMAZING! She always responded to all of our questions immediately and was flexible with every request we had. All of our guest (50 rooms) said great things about their stay. From setting up our decor, letting my husband and I and bridal party check in early, amazing food we wouldn’t have changed a thing about our wedding. We cannot rate this team more highly!Sent on 07/10/2019

Alyssa from the beginning stages was a great source of guidance when choosing excelsior springs as our venue. She was — quick with email responses. Easy to set up meetings with to discuss the big day. Had great organizational skills when gathering and dispersing information. Alyssa had great chemistry with us during the entire planning process. Her suggestions from past wedding experiences went a long way and resulted in a fantastic wedding for my wife and I.Sent on 06/05/2019
I highly recommend working with Alyssa for your big wedding day, she will steer you in the right direction for a successful fun day.

This venue and Alyssa out did all expectations I had for our NYE wedding. Being New Years Eve, we really wanted a venue where all our guests were able to stay close by, where we could have our ceremony and still be in downtown Saratoga Springs; Excelsior Springs had it all.
Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful, the staff is exceptional. Alyssa went above and beyond to make sure every need we had was met. She was able to help us make last minute decisions, was organized, insightful and was available always readily available to answer all my questions and concerns. Alyssa worked with all my vendors, reached out the weeks before our wedding to make sure everything was taken care of. Not only did we have our own server the night of the wedding, our head table and family were closely paid attention to the entire night!
I will admit, we had some concerns about the food and if it would take like generic “venue food” but that also surpassed all our expectations. Served warm, presented beautifully and most importantly it was delicious!
Finally- the wedding suite is enormous and beautiful! The room was perfect for breakfast and getting ready the day of. All the staff at the Courtyard were very attentive and kind. The hotel was decorated for the holiday season, they had the fireplace on and our friends and family were able to have drinks at the bar while awaiting the wedding. It was the perfect set up!
I would recommend this venue (and Alyssa) time and time again. Our night turned out perfectly. It was honestly the best weekend of our lives and all in part because of Excelsior Springs, their staff and Alyssa!

Excelsior Springs's reply:Jessica! Thank you so much for your review! You and Eric are such a great couple and your wedding was STUNNING!! So great to work with both of you and so happy that it was everything and more that you thought it would be! Best of luck to you guys moving forward!
I am a wedding photographer and had the pleasure of working with Alyssa at Excelsior Springs in Saratoga recently and everything was amazing. From the moment I arrived everyone made me VERY welcome and were exceptionally helpful. First-class service all the way. Alyssa and everyone on her team are wonderful and so friendly. I'm very certain the couple and their families had a brilliant experience throughout their wedding day and weekend at the Courtyard by Marriot hotel next door. The staff and service were a big reason why. Not to mention the delicious food choices. In other words, everything was perfect and done right from the getting ready and ceremony and throughout the reception party. Impressed would be an under-statement. On a personal note to Alyssa, thank you for being such a wonderful professional to work with and for making my job so much easier. You ARE brilliant!
We love working at Excelsior Springs. The staff are always great to work with and the setting is perfect for an on site ceremony, separate cocktail hour room and then a great room for your reception! A beautiful setting for any event. Check them out for your next event.
