    My husband and I recently had our daughters wedding reception here at the Holiday Inn. Our rating says it all. We were extremely happy with everything that happened last Saturday. From the initial plans and working with Ingrid to the end of the night - it was as close to a perfect day as possible. Ingrid made everything run smooth and was even there to make sure our daughter's day ran perfectly. The food was delicious. We had the filet, chicken and vegetarian dishes and received no complaints only lots of compliments. All the staff were friendly but professional. All were willing to contribute in their way to make this event one to be remembered.

    We held both my Hindu wedding ceremony and wedding reception at the Holiday Inn. The staff did an amazing job making sure everything was perfect for our big day. I spent a lot of time planning with Jeanette and she did a wonderful job overseeing the execution of everything. Chef Chris and Chef Parvin worked very hard on the Indian food and we received lots of compliments on the food and presentation. The staff, service, and presentation was that of a high end hotel. I highly recommend this venue!
