Perfect Wedding Weekend!

We had planned to get married at HVZ in October 2020 but postponed for all the obvious reasons. We rescheduled and got married on 4.29.23. I worked very closely with the HVZ team and they worked incredibly hard to make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. Rachael, the event coordinator, was my main point of contact. She was responsive, knowledgeable, organized, and warm at every turn. She made us feel like VIPS anytime we were onsite for planning and especially the weekend of the wedding itself.
Erin and Abby handled the room blocks and they were so accommodating to all our guests, making sure they had quiet spaces away from any Rainey Street noise and that everyone was comfortable and had what they needed. I mentioned to Erin that I like a good batt and she made sure we had a soaking tub in our room every single time we were there!
Joaquin was super thoughtful and hands on in all his catering/service management! When he sensed we were both a little stressed before the rehearsal, he brought me a glass of champagne and my groom a glass of bourbon to take the edge off a little. What a gem!
And the front desk staff was always kind and helpful to me and all our guests.
The setting of the hotel is elegant, modern, music forward and a little moody - which is why chose it. But the care and support the HVZ team provided at every turn is what made all the difference in giving us the absolute best wedding weekend from start to finish! We are so grateful for them.

Dream Venue

We did our due diligence when selecting our wedding venue, but knew we were home when we set foot in Hotel Van Zandt. The hotel is the perfect balance of unique sophistication and elegance. We used a variety of spaces including the main ballroom for our Indian ceremony and reception, the Meriwether ballroom for our rehearsal dinner and the pool area for our evening western ceremony. The team at the Van Zandt is knowledgeable and helpful - they have your best interests at hand and incredibly responsive, and they make you feel welcome every step of the way. We were so lucky to work with both Molly and Samantha throughout the last year leading up to our big day in November 2021. Our families still talk about lovely the team was and could see them working hard to ensure there we no hiccups to our day. The decor is breathtaking, and the chef + team will curate a menu that will leave you reminiscing for days after your meal. The service staff will greet you with the biggest smiles and somehow make your day extra special. If you have the opportunity to get married in heart of downtown Austin, look no further than the Hotel Van Zandt.

Highly Recommend HVZ!

Highly recommend the Hotel Van Zandt for your wedding or event - they are absolutely fabulous! Sam and Molly are both rockstars and will make sure every little detail is taken care of. They also go above and beyond to make your whole stay as wonderful as possible. The whole HVZ team made sure we were taken care of the whole time - their catering team was always on top of it and the food was delicious! We had to postpone our wedding and the HVZ was willing to work with us as we changed our wedding plans - we are so happy we were able to have our celebration this year and the HVZ made sure we had the best day ever!
