I've officially booked my wedding with Hotel El Convento and I'm very pleased so far with the professionalism with their staff. I went to several venues and the photos do not do justice. This place is absolutely beautiful.Sent on 12/12/2019

Amazing experience at Hotel El Convento with Tary
Tary greeted my family and I with a great, bright smile. I immediately felt welcomed and as if I were talking to a long time friend. She is extremely professional and prepared. She shared exactly where my cocktail hour and reception will be. She gave me examples with photos from past events on her iPad and a plan B if it rained. I could tell that Tary loves her job and that it is her passion. I knew before our meeting was over, that this was the place to hold my dream wedding.Sent on 09/08/2019

Authentic Venue and Great Food
El Convento hosted our wedding in December of 2019. We worked with Tary and Sandra, both of whom were so helpful throughout the planning process. We had 135 guests and had the ceremony at Plaza Rogativa and the reception in Campeche Salon. With a few tables upstairs, we had more than enough space for the reception. El Convento also provided an indoor room for the ceremony in case it rained. We also used that room for the wedding rehearsal (it's beautiful). The reception went flawlessly. El Convento provided us a personal server who brought us drinks and hors d'oeuvre while we were still taking photos after the ceremony and preparing to enter the reception. The dinner service was well executed and the food is delicious (we did Mango Chicken, Stuffed Pork and the Eggplant) The room itself is stunning Spanish architecture (definitely check out their pictures). We also hosted a brunch the next day in the hotel courtyard. We had an amazing experience and would highly recommend El Convento.Sent on 12/29/2019
