Hotel Bennett

Beautiful hotel. The staff from too down are professional and the quality of the service is excellent. The hotel itself is well kept and impressive as is the grand ballroom. If you have your wedding or special event here they will not disappoint.

We want to thank the people at The Bennett for giving us an incredible weeklong experience and an over-the-top wedding reception. The Bennett was truly the perfect venue. At every turn, the service, the attention to details and the people made our special day into a fairy tale of delight. Grayson was beyond our expectation. She handled every imaginable detail with such professionalism. She sets the standard for all to follow.

Hotel Bennett Will Treat You Like Royalty!

I have truly never experienced service that compares to that of Hotel Bennett. While there are several luxury hotel options downtown, I have not come across one as new, grand, or with a team as stellar. We worked with Jessie to host our wedding welcome event at the Bennett, and upon the first call we knew we were in great hands. From covid-related changes to inclement weather, Jessie and her team handled everything and we truly just showed up. Aside from our event, anything you choose to do at the Bennett, from dinner to drinks to hosting your wedding hotel block there, I cannot recommend them and their team enough.
