    Wonderful Venue

    The staff at the Perry was excellent! They were always quick to respond to our questions, willing to accommodate our requests, and truly worked with us to make our wedding day special. They also were incredibly accommodating and helpful while navigating a reschedule due to covid; they communicated any policy changes with us quickly, and worked with us to find solutions that work for us and the hotel. We didn't use a wedding planner, and I never felt like I needed one with the Perry. We highly recommend Stafford's Perry Hotel!

    Perfect Wedding Day!

    I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Stafford's Perry Hotel team. My husband and I didn’t have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Angie & Xania made the planning process so easy, and the Perry staff's execution was seamless. Our reception was in the Rose Garden Veranda & it ended up pouring rain during dinner. Their tent system is absolutely amazing - not a drop of rain entered the area. Amazing! They are experts in providing a superior guest experience. The food was fantastic and the service was seamless.
