A truly unforgettable wedding
I knew that I wanted to get married in a Gettysburg, but my husband needed a bit of coaxing. That’s what I told Megan when I met her in May of 2018 to tour the venue while I was out there for work, and to my shock she was more than understanding. We had been to Gettysburg a few times before for weekend vacations with my family and loved the area, but he was stuck on getting married in our home state of CT to accommodate more friends and family. After a few months of looking at venues near us, I finally convinced him to come and check out The Gettysburg Hotel and meet Megan with me on a Sunday and instantly he was hooked. Not only is the space perfect for a couple of history nerds like us, but Megan truly set us both at ease that day when we bombarded her with tons of questions and she had every answer. And it was nothing short of that for the next 10 months leading up to our wedding, especially not being local to the area and working with her to plan it from afar. Everything was done through email which was fantastic, and she juggled numerous silly questions and countless redundant emails from the both of us-ultimately leading to the absolutely perfect day in May for us to say I Do. If you are a newly engaged couple looking to have a memorable wedding experience I mean it when I say look no further than The Gettysburg Hotel. The value for the amount we paid was incomparable, the entire staff was so accommodating, the venue was incredibly amazing, the vendors they work with are truly wonderful, but it is really Megan who is a true star. Also, if you can, opt to have your ceremony on the historic train platform right behind the hotel, and get the ice cream bar for dessert- our guests are STILL raving over it!Sent on 06/28/2019

Experience was Above and Beyond
I would absolutely recommend the Gettysburg Hotel as a wedding venue. Their customer service and the experience they provide their couples is above and beyond any other venue we looked at. We worked with Megan at the Hotel and she made sure every aspect of our bid day ran smoothly. From decorating to managing the day-of logistics, she was incredibly helpful. She went above the call of duty and even helped me fix my dress when the bustle broke. The Hotel gives you the best experience on your wedding day, one where you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying and celebrating the moment.Sent on 07/06/2019

When you have an event at The Gettysburg Hotel, you are creating your own kind of history. The building is beautiful, but the main ballroom, oh, what can I say? It's stunning. I love the old safe, as you can get very creative on how to utilize the space! The event team at The Gettysburg Hotel is top notch! The event team is wonderful to work with, and always have the client's best interests at heart. Don't wait, RUN to see the property!
