Excellent! Highly recommend.
We booked our wedding reception at The Alexandrian and could not have been more impressed. Annee and the team took care of every detail! I stayed in the Eleanor suite and my husband stayed at Morrison House. The pictures are stunning! The food was fantastic. Our guests are still talking about it. We were impressed by the bar service as well. They made sure everyone had a 5 star experience.

Perfect winter wedding in the heart of Old Town
The Alexandrian was exactly what my husband and I were looking for for our December wedding. We had our first date and got engaged on King Street, so it was only appropriate that we got married on King Street in the heart of the city where our story began! The location of the hotel is so convenient with easy access to the airport, restaurants, shopping, and things to do for our out of town guests. We also loved having everything in one building - it made planning all the logistics incredibly easy as the bridal party all got ready in suites, we had our ceremony and reception in the ballroom, were able to utilize the courtyard for our cocktail hour and for guests to get some fresh air during the reception, we even used the hotel lobby for our first look pictures in front of the fireplace.
We did have a day of coordinator who was essential in handling all the day of details and coordinating with the hotel catering manager to ensure all of our decor was set up for both the ceremony and reception. She was also essential in keeping us on scheduled and communicating with all our other vendors, including the hotel staff, to make sure all the details of our day were executed perfectly.
Ashley, the catering manager, was absolutely amazing in helping us plan our big day and iron out all the details. She was new to her position when we started working with her, however it was clear she knows her stuff and was willing to go out of her way to help us plan our perfect day! The catering team the day of was absolutely amazing, they made sure my husband and I were well fed and always had a drink in hand. We also heard from our guests that all the bartenders and wait staff were incredible.
I will say that we did have some issues with the front desk and the reservation team. For example, my in laws had booked a suite for the weekend at least 8 months in advance and the reservation got lost. We also had a few miscommunications when trying to update our room block and change around the dates of reservations that were ultimately resolved but were frustrating to work through.
Overall, we are SO glad we had our wedding at the Alexandrian. The hotel fits my husband's and my style and our story so perfectly - I can’t even imagine us having our wedding anywhere else.Sent on 12/21/2019

We stayed at this hotel on our wedding night, and I used the Mediterranean Suite to also get ready for our big day! My 2 bridesmaids and I had our hair and makeup done in the suite and we ordered room service, the hotel was very professional and accommodating despite recently changing in management!Sent on 03/06/2017
