We just had our wedding 2 weeks ago on December 1, 2017 at the Gettysburg Hotel. I can not say enough positive things about our entire experience with the wedding. From booking, to planning, to the wedding...it was an extremely pleasant experience. April Rose is a wedding coordinating rockstar. A few weeks after booking our wedding last year, my husband (fiancé at the time) was diagnosed with Leukemia at 36 years old. Needless to say...our life was up in the air and the wedding details to us had taken a back burner. I reached out to April to inform her of our situation and that I most likely would be a lunatic bride. Every single time I emailed April or had an impulsive last minute question, she responded so quickly with answers and the loveliest sense of humor that put a smile on my face. She truly is a top notch person, as well as a top-notch professional. Every part of our contract was laid out in detail and explained so that we knew exactly what to expect on our big day. I recommend trying out one of the hotel's wedding tasting events, as we were able to try every dish offered, as well as meet various local vendors who have experience working with the hotel. The wedding package we had included a cake from an option of two bakers. We went with Karen Rodkey and the cake was amazing. We received so many compliments. The cocktail hour and food during the cocktail hour was delicious. We had plated meal options of the beef, chicken and vegetable strudel. Everyone raved about the food! And we had a pretty vocal and opinionated group as our guests. A few guests have allergies or food aversions and the hotel wait staff and kitchen didn't miss a beat when it came to plating the specific people appropriately. The bridal suite was gorgeous and in close proximity to the ballroom. The hotel staff brought all our gifts to the room for us without us having to ask. They also had a lovely spread and treats for us in the room for after the wedding. Book here!Sent on 12/13/2017

Gettysburg Hotel - Worth every Penny
Compared to other venues pricing and their all inclusive packages, this was definitely the way to go. Also appreciated the acceptance of us being Bride and Bride. Every single time I emailed Megan, which was a lot, or had any questions or changes, she responded immediately and fully and was the epitome of professional and thorough. Every part of our contract was laid out in detail and everything was fully explained and reviewed and Megan also assisted with finer details we hadn't thought of and was a supportive and friendly presence who didn't miss anything. she also was very flexible with her schedule at all times. the hotel had some awesome wedding vendor events and a lot of helpful tools to help us find vendors they have used in the past. we also had a very lovely tasting and tour which sealed the deal for us. The wedding package price also included a cake from an option of two bakers. Megan also taught us how to cut the cake. We went with Karen Rodkey, which was also the best choice, our guests are still gushing about our cake. I am so excited to have the top tier for our anniversary. We received so many compliments on everything, megan is an expert designer (it was beautiful and turned out better than I had envisioned) and has a great team and are very efficient at multi tasking. The cocktail hour and food during the cocktail hour was delicious. We had plated meal options of the citrus and horseradish encrusted salmon (amazing!) and chicken with fontina cream and tomato relish (equally as amazing) and a napoleon polenta as the veggie option. Everyone raved about the food). on point for those with allergies. hotel was very helpful with coordinating our entrances and exits and assisted with set ups. The bridal suite was gorgeous and in close proximity to the ballroom and also complimentary, with a beautiful fire place and jacuzzi tub. The hotel staff brought all our gifts to the room for us without us having to ask as well as took care of decorations and clean up as well. They also had a lovely spread and treats for us in the room for after the wedding for a very personable experience and a keep sake we can't wait to use. Hotel staff were also very helpful with any assistance or request. We love that Gettysburg is now a part of our history and had a great time at the location in the square. Megan and the Gettysburg hotel is the way to go!Sent on 11/15/2018

My husband and I just got married on 9/8/18 at the Gettysburg Hotel. We had ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in thehotel. We do not have enough good things to say about this venue. When we booked our contract, we started working with April Rose who was extremely helpful and didn't miss a detail. About 8 months before our wedding, April informed us she was leaving and Megan Wherley was taking over for weddings. I was a little nervous, but the transition was seamless. Megan often took time out of her non working hours to talk to us and made sure we were on the same page for everything. As someone who worries, I definitely did not need to. We went with preferred vendors to make our lives easier, and we were extremely pleased with how easily the vendors worked with the hotel to bring life to our dreams. Our wedding day was amazing and guests commented on how well everything was put together and how beautiful the venue was. Although historic, the decoration options to give the space your own flare are endless. The central location of the venue gave our out of town guests an opportunity to explore the historic areas of the town. another advantage is the hotel room block, which makes it easy for guests to book a hotel and not have to worry about more traveling. I would not hesitate to suggest this to any couple who is looking for an all inclusive venue with endless options. Our day was more perfect than we could have imagined, thanks to the Gettysburg Hotel.Sent on 09/14/2018
The Gettysburg Hotel is a great venue to work with. They are always available for assistance if you need it. They offer top quality food and everything you need for your wedding under one roof.
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!
Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL place!! The staff are experts and the food is exquisite. I would HIGHLY recommend them!
