    We had our rehearsal dinner here in April of 2018. We did the Southern BBQ buffet and the food was delicious! They set up the room very well and everyone was friendly and helpful.

    Magnificent! Everything was wonderful. The reception was enjoyed by all of our guests. Guests commented on how beautiful the reception was and how great the food was. Alice, the wedding coordinator, was great to work with. Always professional and available. She has an eye for detail and is competent in what she does will. She is friendly and personable. She put at ease and we trusted her judgment. She never let us down. Actually she could not have done a better job. The entire staff was commendable. I would recommend this venue and Alice to anyone planning a wedding. It was the icing on the cake!

    Our wedding was phenomenal. After our wedding, a ton of our guests asked how they could get this vendor for various events. The day my-now-husband showed me the location I fell in love. The Hotel gave us the ballroom area, the restaurant area and the patio for the night. The hotel was very generous with the time allotted to us in setting up the location and the wedding ceremony. They helped set up everything, and worked with us trying to understand and make sure we had an amazing time. The day before the wedding we were given the ballroom to set up. The staff kept checking up on us to make sure we were okay and to see if we needed any help. The day of the wedding, the restaurant area was cleared and the staff of the hotel worked on the room decorating it. Alice, the event coordinator, was easy to talk to, very helpful, tried to make sure that everything was fabulous and worked amazing under pressure, her and the beloved staff. By 4 everything was set up beautifully! The food was delightful, that special thanks goes to the Chef! He made sure to keep loading our guests with delightful food. The theme was Mediterranean food and homemade pizza (The kids loved the pizza, and the adults said the food was savory). The desserts were fruits (which were cut beautifully), strawberry covered chocolate, and cupcakes for Nona's Sweets (which the hotel corresponds with for the cake). The appetizers included crackers and multiple-colored cheeses (The guests were raving about how they had never seen that many cheeses in one area). All I'm saying is this hotel put in 125% in making this night memorable for my husband and I. We are both so happy to have chosen this hotel, and we hope other couples looking to have an amazing service will also chose this location, as we did. Best wishes and make the correct choice with Holiday Inn.
