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.Sent on 01/31/2019
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!

There are not enough words to express the gratitude that Hailey and I feel for everything Alyssa did for us and our wedding, but I'll try...Sent on 12/05/2018
When we initially booked with Excelsior Springs, we really liked the fact that it was in a downtown location that made it incredibly convenient for all of our out-of-towners to stay in Saratoga Springs and have things to do nearby that didn't require rental cars or taxis. Initially, they handled all of the food, the furniture, the venue, the service.... EVERYTHING.
What we didn't know was how much help and comfort Alyssa and all the staff would provide us throughout the entire process. From beginning to end, she'd call us with and remind us it was time for the next appointment to make sure we were all on track. When we were nervous about being incredibly far behind schedule, she'd either get us on track or tell us to stop panicking and that we were doing just fine. When we had periods where we were indecisive about something, we would put the decision in her hands, and all of those choices were eventually EXACTLY what we wanted.
In one instance, I was trying to plan a surprise for my now wife through the venue and the DJ. As I had to do it in secrecy, I got frustrated with my inability to communicate with my DJ and began to panic as the wedding was drawing near. I called Alyssa and expressed my concerns, to which she calmly responded "I've got this, let me handle it." Everything proceeded forward without one single flaw and proved I had no reason to panic.
And finally, her help and coordination on the night of the wedding could not have been better. She organized everyone, got them where they needed to be, and made it so that we could not just rest assured that everything would go swimmingly, she made it that we could enjoy our night without a single worry.
I can't recommend this venue enough. The elegance of the venue, the linens provided, and the food (that our guests are still complimenting) were one thing, but the biggest asset you'll gain through Excelsior Springs is the enormous amount of help you'll get from Alyssa and all the staff at Excelsior Springs!
Thanks again for making our big day absolutely incredible!!

Dream Come True
This venue was perfect for our wedding. I wanted a very simple and elegant theme and it was picture perfect. My husband and I aren't big planners, but with Alyssa's help she made sure everything went smoothly. She contacted us frequently to ensure that we were ahead of schedule and had everything we needed. The food was absolutely amazing and so yummy. We had one guest with a very strict food allergy, that the chef was able to accommodate. We stayed at the hotel for the weekend and the hotel staff was amazing. I cannot give Alyssa more praises or the venue. I'm so incredible happy and I wish I could re-live my day over and over again.Sent on 12/05/2018

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.
