    What a beautiful place! Spacious and elegant, a wonderful vitnage setting. My husband and I chose this location because it was flexible in catering and alcohol, and allowed us to bring in what we wanted. PLUS, there was the wonderful outdoor courtyard, with the inside for a bad weather backup. The hall includes a floral arch for the ceremony, which saved us having to worry about those, and saved us money. The manager, Cynthia, had helpful suggestions, and made things run smoothly for us. Highly recommend.

    The moment I stepped foot inside, I fell in love! The entire building is so beautiful! The high ceilings, wood floors, the dressing rooms! Cynthia was completely amazing the entire time. She answered every question my family threw at her and even contributed to ideas for the decorations! She really went above and beyond to make sure our day went off without a hitch :-)

    I am solely posting this on here as the hall manager deleted it from the halls Facebook page.
    Beautiful hall, horrible hall manager!!! Overall was very non-accommodating to ideas that were not her own & with getting Into the hall during the whole weekend. Tried pushing her outdated decorations on us starting at the consult & thru when we were decorating the hall with our own stuff the night before the wedding, she was physically aggressive with our children which is NEVER ok with other peoples children.
    THE HALL WAS HOT AS HELL as somehow they made mistake and instead of turning the air conditioning on it was put on heat instead. Our cake melted and a lot of guests left early due to the temp in the hall. Hours later after many complaints about the warmth the security guard realized the error.
    Leading into the review from our friends who helped with clean up the day after she asked then harassed them in asking to keep our leftovers...
    Not just ask, harass us about it when we were trying to assess everything, make a plan for clean up. Then when I asked her to give me some space, her and they security guy went and harassed Matt about it . ALL DAY she bothered me about stuff, was worse than she was fri and sat, complaining about every bride she's had, " why do they do this I don't know blah blah blah" I had to get stern with her and tell her to leave us alone, that we had a lot to accomplish. Then she was a total witch, didn't want us to prop the door open to load stuff because it was raining even though there was a canopy above the door, brought out this list about scrubbing the tables with soap and water, all this other stuff that I'm sure she never showed you, stuff that is the hall's responsibility, wouldn't let me take stuff out like the chalkboards when I wanted because she had to take 100 pictures of them. Kept locking the door when we'd go to unload even though we told her we'd be right back for the next load. She is a piece of work"

    Starlight Chateau's reply:

    This review has factual errors and exaggerations. When this review was posted, I chose to not respond. Continuing queries from potential customers, however, require a response.

    - These negative reviews all come from one event. To date, this event is the only one that has generated negative reviews. Having done hundreds of weddings and parties since 2006, one bad review is a very good record. Since this event, I have met people who know this group, and I am satisfied that it would have been impossible to please them.

    - This venue is primarily "DIY" -- "do it yourself" -- customers have maximum involvement and flexibility. DIY means customers do the work, and have a lower rental cost than comparable venues. Rental contracts include specific language on what clean-up is expected. It is always best when venue and customer are fully informed of their responsibilities from the outset, no one is pleased by surprises. If the customer did not pass clean-up information on to friends who did cleanup, it is not the fault of the venue.

    - Event organizers made a number of decisions which created their problems. Results are no fault of the venue. Crowded tables were placed by the customer. Their centerpieces included 192 candles: there were more candles than people. The room filled with gas, moisture, and smell, plus the heat. It is unreasonable to expect the AC to handle that kind of problem. During setup, customers' children wandered and vandalized the building. Manager attempted reasonable measures to limit damage. "Outdated decorations" are included free, no reason to "push."

    - Venue provided customer with numerous extras not in the contract, without charge. Customer occupied the venue for 4 days. They paid for 1 1/2 days. For some unexplained reason, they expected a key and 24/7 access for 4 days. Reviewer complained about access during cleanup: a downtown location does not have the luxury of leaving doors unlocked. Customer made other unreasonable demands.
