Beautiful wedding venue and amazing team!

Hotel Blackhawk was the perfect location for our wedding! The space itself is beautiful, and the team that made it all happen was amazing! Kimberlin was such a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process - she was so attentive and flexible and made sure everything we wanted was prioritized. She was with us the entire weekend (including the rehearsal the night before) to make sure our wedding day went smoothly. She also coordinated with all of our vendors ahead of time to make sure everyone was on the same page. The day was so perfect and there were no hiccups whatsoever! Kimberlin and her team, along with our vendors, flipped the entire room between our ceremony and reception in a little over an hour, and it looked incredible! Not only did our guests love the space, but we heard such great things about the food, drinks and the service as well! Everyone who worked at our event was so pleasant (especially Ashley who served us at our sweetheart table all night!) We couldn't have been happier with our decision to get married at Hotel Blackhawk!

Wedding experience

Recently, we celebrated the wedding of our son at the Upsky Bar at the Current Hotel. The whole experience was unforgettable. The staff and wedding coordinator were superb, so accommodating and professional. They knew their job! My son鈥檚 wedding was just beautiful. A special shout-out to Kimberlin, at the Current, who so kindly helped us at each step. Thank you to all!

Thank you for making our day perfect!

Hotel Blackhawk is stunning! From the very first meeting, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for - a beautiful space that was classic and timeless. The venue coordinator, Kimberlin, is superwoman! She went above and beyond every step of the way to make sure we had the perfect day. From answering questions, providing recommendations, keeping us on track with deadlines, and much more, she was outstanding. The food was delicious and the service team was excellent. The Gold Room looked beautiful on the day of the wedding and had our guests talking long after the wedding was over. Thank you to the entire Hotel Blackhawk team for making our wedding the perfect day!

We love playing events at Hotel Blackhawk. We have performed in the Gold Room to many times to count over the years. This is one of the most beautiful reception halls in the area. The rooms natural contours makes it stand out like few others do when dressed with up-lighting. Great staff and a lot of options for event setup.
