Robin, the hotel event coordinator, was always helpful. There were so many times she went out of her way to make sure we had the best weekend of our lives. Everyone from the servers to the concierge was fabulous.Sent on 09/26/2019

We had a fantastic experience having our daughters wedding at the Orrington. From the valet, the bell captains, the front desk and banquet captains all the way to working with Robin Schultz, we couldn’t have been happier. We always were met with professionalism and personal attention every step of the way. The food was great as well as the service. A beautiful venue with a warm touch!!Sent on 12/05/2018
