    Diana and her catering staff went above and beyond our expectations! The room with the skyline in the background was amazing! Our guests loved the view, and they loved the Chicken de Burgo and the Iowa Pork Chop that we selected, and they even gave some of our guests who had to leave the reception early their meals to go. David and I were very impressed with their staff and professionalism and we highly recommend the Holiday Inn!! It was worth every penny!

    To this day we have many people still say the best steak we have ever eaten was at our wedding. I have eaten steak all over the country in some of the most well know steakhouses and I have to say I agree. The good at our wedding was awesome

    The Holiday Inn provided us with a beautiful venue for our wedding reception. Diana Logan was fabulous to work with and very accommodating and flexible to our needs. We had a larger wedding guest list but she helped us make sure it still felt intimate. She even helped us organize a "family room" in their board room to allow our family to gather as they were arriving for the weekend as well as another room for a gift-opening the next day. All in all, it was worth the price and fabulous service.
