    I couldn't be happier with our choice in venue!!! Working with the team at Hotel Lafayette (through Acqua) was great. They were extremely responsive, professional and fun to be around. I'm so glad they were part of our big day!

    I was thrilled with my experience of having our reception in the Crystal Ballroom at the Hotel Lafayette! WE started working with Carrie in October 2014. Carrie was accommodating for any time that my fiancé and I were in town for planning and she was willing to do things and make changes for us to customize our day to be exactly how we wanted it. Unfortunately, we weren't able to finish our experience with her as she left her position and we finished planning with Ally via email and phone calls. We only actually met her 3 days before the wedding. Carrie did such a great job keeping track of all of our communications that the transition was seamless. There was only 1 slip-up that occurred the day of the wedding. There was miscommunication about our bar staying open for an extended amount of time. We quickly discussed it with the manager that was on duty and it was rectified within minutes. Only 2 guests were aware there was even an issue! Amazing! On top of all of this.... I had SEVERAL guests comment on how accommodating the staff was! I noticed that once I arrived at cocktail hour, they were extremely attentive to me, but apparently in the beginning they had made a point to find out who the MOG, MOB, and grandparents were and made sure they were all taken car elf for the night. Even guests that weren't "wedding party" couldn't believe how friendly and attentive the staff were. To make a point to tell me is saying something about the professionalism. I am THRILLED that we decided to have our reception here!
