    The Lido Beach Resort far exceeded our expectations with professionalism, attention to detail and quality. Sonja Newton was amazing to work with and very professional yet personable. During our reception the staff was awesome and I felt like a princess. I had one special person of the wait staff assigned to me and she was so kind and attentive. The entire day could not have been more perfect!

    We selected the Holiday Inn Lido Beach because of the beautiful city and beach views, catering menu options, and convenience of having the ceremony directly across the street. There were some near emergencies a week prior to the wedding, but Sonja and the staff did everything they could to help us out and it ended up even better than we could have possibly imagined!! The staff was wonderful, Sonja helped make everything look beautiful, and all the guests complimented everything from the location, to the food, to the decor. One person who said they had passed the hotel many times stated they had no idea a room with that view existed in the hotel. I highly recommend this venue as the price is great for such a beautiful setting!!

    Thank you, Andrea! All the best to you and Joe!

The Holiday Inn Lido Beach and Sonja Newton, your great contact there, is a wonderful place to have a wedding ceremony and reception. They are directly across the street from the beach, if you want a beach wedding, or they have a great room to setup for a wedding ceremony. Then, their rooms upstairs are perfect for a reception and the wonderful thing is that all of your guests can stay right there. It is totally self-contained. I highly recommend The Holiday Inn Lido Beach and Sonja Newton for your wedding.
