    Elegant Venue & Great Service

    We loved our wedding at Excelsior Springs in June! The ballroom is beautiful, with siding details, lighting, mirrors, and lovely chandeliers, you hardly need additional decor. It is very well maintained and the cocktail lounge was perfect with a patio alongside so guests could get outside to get fresh air throughout the event. The Event Center is next door but separate from the Marriott so you have your own space but it’s easy for guests staying over to get back to their rooms in your room block. It was great working with Colleen Whitaker to plan our event - we originally scheduled the wedding for October 2020 and postponed it due to the pandemic, Colleen was very flexible and accommodating to help us reschedule the date and work through different iterations of the wedding based on the current COVID-19 restrictions. She was also very helpful to talk through general wedding options and figure out what we wanted. The Chef did a tasting meal a few months out so we sampled hors d'oeuvres and entrée options before choosing - we loved the hors d’oeuvres! We had great service throughout the day/night and would highly recommend a wedding at this venue. We were also very happy with the breakfast buffet we did at the Marriott the day after as well. Thank you Colleen & Excelsior staff!

    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!

    Excelsior Springs's reply:

    Thanks so much for your kind words Maggie! You and Steve were so awesome to work with! The personal touches you incorporated into your wedding made things just that much more beautiful! :)

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!
