    Holiday Inn Downtown is a hidden gem in Rochester

    I cannot stop raving about the Holiday Inn Downtown. From the very first email I received after inquiring to the day after our wedding- they were very responsive, flexible and amazing. Shannon, who gives you her all and doubles as your event coordinator- responded to all of my emails throughout, within hours, sometimes minutes. I cannot speak highly enough of her. We had booked pre-covid and rescheduled multiple times. Each time they worked with us with no problems.
    Finally, this past July we were able to hold our wedding. It was nothing short of perfect and beautiful. The large ballroom was absolutely stunning with a little up lighting. We used in house centerpieces (which most places do not include) and the tables looked gorgeous. We didn't spend much on any extras, besides the up lighting and a couple sequin table clothes for the desserts and cake.... and the room still took our breath away.
    All of our guests have told us the food was the best (which we agree) and the servers were very friendly and fast.
    A good chunk of our guest list stayed in rooms at the hotel and had nothing but positive things to say and loved the convenience (parking is also on site and steps away from the front door, a huge plus in the city).
    The quality you get for the reasonable price makes this a perfect wedding venue. DO NOT overlook this venue! It is recently updated, the staff goes above and beyond and honestly, you cannot beat their pricing.
    We had both our ceremony and reception here and couldn't have been happier with everything.

    Meeting with my vendor for the first time.

    The vendor was very, reasonable. The place was immaculate and I can vision myself getting married here. They offer many things and add one to make your day a dream come true. The wedding planner shannon is very knowledgeable on her job and makes you feel comfortable. Responds to questions in a reasonable amount of time.
