Get married here!
I had to plan my wedding in less than 45 days and I am eternally convinced that Ellie at The Alida was an angel placed in my path because she made it the EASIEST, most EXCITING, ENJOYABLE experience ever. This hotel not only smells like MAGIC in the lobby (I really mean it, go smell it), but the staff were a dream! Our entire family and many other wedding guests stayed on-site and we all had the best experience. The beds are softer than clouds, the event space is gorgeous, the rooftop left us speechless, and Ellie and Rachel both gave us the most incredible, unforgettable day EVER. The food... I don't even have words. No one could stop talking about the food OR the bartending! I enjoyed absolutely every single second of our wedding. Every email sent, every question asked at random hours of the night, or on any day of the week was answered by God-send Ellie. I cannot express my gratitude enough to the entire staff at The Alida, from accounting to events, front desk staff to housekeeping; just, get married here already. You WILL NOT regret it. Thank you to everyone at The Alida (especially you guys Ellie + Rachel) for being apart of the greatest week and day of our lives!Sent on 12/31/2020

The Alida is beautiful!
We had our small mini-mony at the Alida after several failed plans (yay-2020 wedding planning). The hotel is GORGEOUS and Ellie is super sweet and very responsive. She was quick to respond to my email about keeping the cake chilled at the hotel less than 24 hours from the ceremony. Our food was excellent and the bartenders were the sweetest on our day. Also, the rooftop bar has amazing drinks and the best view. They even went into our room to drop off a bottle of champagne and 2 champagne flute.Sent on 10/01/2020
I will say there was a few hiccups, but the staff was always quick to respond and help out which is why I am giving them 5 stars still. The biggest hiccup was on the day of our checkout (the day after getting married). A member of the cleaning staff knocked on our door one time and immediately entered the room at 8 am. We didn't even have time to say anything before they opened the door. We felt extremely uncomfortable and super fortunate that we were both dressed and already awake. The cleaning woman came in to ask if we were ready to check out. I was stunned - if we were ready to check out we would have been down at the front desk checking out and we still had 3 hours. This has nothing to do with the Alida events team and I would never hold this against them - I just thought it was something I had to mention considering it was extremely uncomfortable.
We had stayed at the hotel 3 weeks before our wedding and stayed in a beautiful room with a daybed looking over the river and a vanity (which is perfect for a bride getting ready!). However, when we checked in for the wedding weekend we got stuck in probably one of their worst rooms. It was a corner room and was half of the size - which was a huge problem since we had a TON of stuff for the wedding, it had no day bed - so there was no room for my bridal party to get ready, and no vanity. I was super disappointed especially after staying there previously. However, my husband went down and asked if they were able to switch our room and they did promptly.
We were also supposed to have a staff member serve our shrimp and grits station - but we ended up not having anyone to serve. We weren't charged for the person and it would have honestly been unnecessary so we definitely weren't upset at all about it.
The Alida Hotel's reply:Thank you for your kind review Cassie!! You guys were so great to work with and I am so happy we were able to help everything work out for your special day!

Ellie- our wedding angel
I honestly do not even know where to start with this review. Ellie and her team deserve more than 5 stars and my words could ever express how talented she is. My husband and I knew that we were going to have a small elopement/micro wedding but still wanted it to feel like a traditional wedding. Ellie from the start made me feel like everything I wanted could come true despite our wishes for a “chill brunch wedding”. She was transparent about pricing, extremely speedy with her replies and extremely accommodating to meeting with us on our last minute trips to Savannah so we could plan our layout and just go over details I had been thinking of. Ellie treated us like family! I truly don’t think I’d trust many people to take all the decor I had thrown into a box and put it together into our dream wedding brunch the morning of. She even rearranged the entire rooftop due to rain and left igloos set up for us which made for a cozy hangout spot for ourselves and our guests. I truly didn’t have to stress about one thing- everything was done for us and beautifully arranged. She was so thoughtful and helpful throughout the entire process. My husband and I keep saying “wow, I wish we could redo that entire day over again” and most of that we owe to Ellie and her team. If you are looking for a place to have a beautiful and stress free wedding, whether large and traditional or small and “relaxed” like ours- The Alida is your place! You will never regret it.Sent on 03/05/2021
