    Best Wedding Venue

    Our experience with Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront was PERFECT from start to finish. When we started our search, we had 3 other venue tours lined up and Holiday Inn/The Anchorage was our first tour. Stephanie, the Catering Manager, did such a phenomenal job with our tour and spent several hours with us sitting down and answering all questions/concerns and walking us through the venue and all of our options. I ask a LOT of questions, and Stephanie was so patient and understanding with us as we started the journey of planning a wedding. We connected with her so well and she did such an amazing job that we cancelled all 3 of our other tours on the way home and called her to tell her we would be booking with her! Stephanie went above and beyond to be with me every step of the way and calm my stress/nerves/concerns. If we had to do this again 1,000 times, we would pick her EVERY SINGLE TIME! The venue was perfect for our wedding. Having everything in one place was EXTREMELY convenient. We arrived early on Friday to start welcoming our guests at the hotel bar as they arrived to check in before rehearsal dinner in the Anchorage on Friday night. The space for the rehearsal was perfect - overlooking the river with the beautiful windows was a great setting to kick off our wedding weekend. We had our ceremony, reception and gift opening at the hotel and let me tell you it was WONDERFUL having everything/everyone in one spot all weekend. Our friends and family are pretty heavy drinkers, so the convenience of having hotel rooms was a huge relief for us knowing that no one had to drive home and could enjoy themselves safely. The packages that the venue offered were wonderful and we felt that we received a very good value for our money! Stephanie helped set everything up (which i thought was so incredible and outside of her job description.. but if that doesn't tell you how amazing she is !!), and she was there for EVERYTHING the entire weekend. It was a huge relief knowing that i had her there to ensure everything was going as planned, and i had all the faith in the world in her. And if there were any hiccups, i had no idea! We received MANY wonderful compliments on the food at the venue. We made a point to go around to all of our guests during dinner so that we could see and talk to everyone that made the time to come celebrate with us, and every single table had nothing but amazing things to say about the food. The hotel set up we loved. It is small and quaint and SUPER cute, and it made us feel like we were the only ones there. The view of the river for the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and perfect. Like i said... if we could do this over again 1,000 times, we would pick Stephanie and the Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront/The Anchorage every single time. Hats off to the staff and especially Stephanie for a flawless weekend. It was one we will never forget.

    amazing experience

    Words can not express our thanks to you and the Staff of the Holiday Inn Riverfront during our wedding weekend (wedding was June 2019).
    Stephanie was amazing to work with. Planning an out of state wedding,,,, well she made it so easy! Stephanie thought about things we would not have even thought about asking. The planning of the wedding you knew what we would need/and even things we didn't know we wanted.
    The rehearsal dinner was amazing and all of the staff were so nice and accommodating .
    The morning of the wedding was amazing. It was so nice that we didn't have to set up the venue, they did an awesome job and it was even better design than we could have imagined.
    The rooms you arranged for the girls and guys to get ready in were so great.
    During the wedding reception every thing was perfect. The food and the staff were amazing. Everyone was so nice and always asking if we needed anything.
    We are so grateful the staff for making our special day more imagined.
    We will definitely recommend the Holiday Inn Riverfront to anyone (and everyone)
