    Matt Monaco is an invaluable asset to the Holiday Inn Northwest. From going out of his way to ensure we stayed as close to our budget as possible to being extremely flexible with meeting times and even staying late at times to fit with our work schedules, Matt was overly gracious and helpful with our wedding planning.

    On the night of the reception, the entire staff was more than helpful. The room decoration was perfect, the meal was exceptional, and the event manager/bartender was very friendly and welcoming to all of the guests. This excellent service carried over into the breakfast and gift opening the next morning. While I couldn't enjoy the breakfast as much as I would have liked due to having a little too much fun the night before, it was still excellent and had a great variety. As a testament to the level of service received, the staff even helped us carry our gifts out to our car after breakfast.

    Overall, our reception was so much more than what we paid for and I would definitely reccommend Matt Monaco and the Holiday Inn Northwest to anyone that was looking to have a wedding reception.

    FYI: when you're choosing your meal, give the braised short ribs a shot. They were amazing.
