    Hotel Congress: Way Above and Beyond

    We cannot recommend Hotel Congress highly enough as a wedding venue. We wanted to find a venue that was unique to Tucson and spoke to the history and connection that we have to this place. We also needed a space that could accommodate our enormous families with the kitchens, staff and experience to make our night unforgettable. Hotel Congress completely exceeded every expectation.

    Melissa, the events coordinator, is a consummate professional who was invaluable throughout every step of the planning and execution process. She helped secure the perfect vendors for everything from flowers to photography and had a reputation which preceded her and excellent working relationships with everyone. She was helpful, communicative, professional, flexible, and meticulously organized. She listened carefully to all of our requests and made sure that every detail that was important to us was reflected in our big day. She even helped coordinate the wedding ceremony and the movements of the bridal party during the day. It was an absolute pleasure working with her and our wedding wouldn't have been nearly as beautiful without her help.

    The reception was indescribably beautiful. The staff at Hotel Congress made sure that every detail was perfect and the space was exactly what was needed to make our guest feel welcomed and comfortable. The servers, bartenders, and support staff were unfailingly polite, professional, and hospitable. The food (planned and prepared by Chef Brian Smith from Maynard's) was absolutely perfect and we still have friends who are talking about it today.

    We also booked rooms at the hotel for the wedding party on the night of the reception and the hotel staff were wonderful, helping us coordinate luggage and rooms for a huge group with ease.

    If you are looking for a wedding venue with history, style, and a staff that will go above and beyond to make your wedding everything that you could want, Hotel Congress is the place.

    Pure Magic

    When I say that Mel and her crew can work magic, I’m not exaggerating. She thinks of every little detail to ensure a flawless ceremony and reception. She solved all of our problems before I ever knew (and still don’t know) they existed. She’s willing to do just about any strange request from an allergy filled gluten free/dairy free family friendly menu, to requesting my favorite ice cream truck come in the middle of the reception. Mel and her team knew what I needed often before I asked and had smiles on their faces the entire time. I used to work in the wedding industry and asked one slightly difficult request, for me to only see the magic of Love and joy throughout the day, and not the behind the scenes chaos we’ve all worked so hard preparing. I can confidently say that they pulled this off with perfection and I was able to celebrate with my family without a worry in the world. I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to work with them and I’m even happier to consider her a friend now. I’d recommend this venue and more specifically Mel and her team to anyone looking to get married in a beautiful and lively downtown Tucson location.
