    Beautiful Venue

    I had a 40 person wedding at the Taconic in August 2019, after a short engagement. I cannot stress enough how helpful the staff is here- Melissa, Anastasia and Jamaica made planning my small wedding in under 6 months seem so easy! I had no idea what I was doing, and no real vision for what I wanted, so I appreciated all the suggestions for vendors, officiants, local restaurants, and everything in between.

    The FOOD was SO GOOD. We had plated dinner from the Copper Grouse restaurant on site. The hardest part was trying to decide our menu after the delicious tasting meal. Our friends and family raved about the food (for months!)! We brought in our own desserts, and the staff was great with presentation and replenishing as needed.

    The personal touches were super as well- prosecco and cheese plate with handwritten notes, top notch room service... I had a minor dress issue in the middle of photos and Jamaica saved the day with some thread and a needle lol. My mother is in a wheelchair and everyone at the hotel was so helpful with making sure she was comfortable, even going so far as changing her room when we realized her chair wouldn't fit.

    Literally my only complaint for the whole weekend was that we couldn't get late check out due to some big event in town the next day!

    I almost wish I could get married again this year so I could do it all over again at the Taconic. Next best thing will have to a trip back for our anniversary!

    Amazing food!! Wonderful people!! Highly recommend!!

    We couldn't be happier that we held our Friday BBQ and our Sunday Brunch at the Taconic, and that they catered our wedding next door at The Inn at Manchester Celebration Barn! Although not the cheapest option, the value was incredible. Every detail was taken care of, lots of communication, they worked seamlessly with our wedding venue, and they were all just so darn nice!!! Parley, Melissa, Anastasia, Patrick and crew were fabulous. The food was out of this world across the board. I still have guest raving about the salad of all things - that's how good even the simplest items were! Highly recommend!!!

    Kimpton Taconic Hotel's reply:

    Tina, Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind review. We loved working with you as well and so happy guests are still raving about the food (who doesn't love a good salad?!). We hope you come back to Manchester again soon to visit!

    Terrific Experience with Taconic!

    My husband and I recently got married in Manchester. Aside from our wedding itself, we held all of our other wedding weekend events at Taconic and booked a room block there for our wedding guests. The property is gorgeous, which is obvious to anyone who has ever been there, but what really stands out to me is their exceptional customer service. Working with Melissa and Anastasia was a dream throughout our entire planning process. They were always very responsive and delivered on everything that they promised. When we expressed our concern about going over budget, Melissa was so understanding and worked with us to find solutions that kept us under budget without compromising on the quality of the event. All of our events ran smoothly, the food was delicious and everyone on the staff that worked our events was attentive, thoughtful, and kind. All of my guests raved about their experience at Taconic, and my husband and I were completely satisfied with our experience there. We’re looking forward to visiting Manchester and staying at Taconic for years to come, and we highly recommend the hotel to anyone!
