I absolutely LOVE this place!! My husband and I got married here last October. We had our ceremony at the indoor/outdoor Kress Terrace then our reception at Suite 300. Everything was beautiful! The management team went above and beyond to make our day perfect. The food was delicious and the staff were great! I would recommend this venue to everyone!Sent on 12/09/2016

So far So Good
Kress Terrace has been super responsive and has answered all my emails within 5 min maybe less. They setup a tour pretty quickly and we booked the same day for NYE 2019!! I am so bad with names but the young lady that gave us the tour(I think her name was Jennifer but maybe not lol) was really nice. Quick and to the point. But not too quick. I hate when people waste my time. I am def going to request that she is the person I work with from here on out and that she is the staff member that's there on the day of. My Fiance is not a people person and really doesn't have too much to say about things. It's whatever I want but he said let's use her. So that was good enough for me as he finds something wrong with just about everybody lol. But after the tasting I will leave another review. After my meeting for the setup,floor plans and linens, I will leave another review and after the actual wedding I will leave my final review.Sent on 01/19/2019

Great Venue in Downtown Greensboro
Great venue! We used the rooftop venue of Kress Terrace for our outdoor ceremony as well as Suite 300 on the lower level for our reception. We loved the look of the venue and it gave an elegant city feel which is what we wanted for our wedding. The staff was very helpful during the planning process as well as day of making sure that everything went how we wanted it to.Sent on 08/13/2019
