    Absolutley amazing!

    My husband & I got married here on September 27 2019. From the first meeting with Joy we knew we picked the right place . We we’re having a wedding on the smaller side & were a little nervous that we may not have been able to find a place. The first meeting with Joy she reassured us they would be able to accommodate us without a problem. Throughout the year & half of planning Joy was an absolute pleasure to work with. She always got back to emails & phone calls. The things I wasn’t sure she made sure to explain it through & set up any appointments . We also worked with Jim for our wedding & we couldn’t have asked for anyone better . We first met him at our tasting which we were blown away with how much we were able to preview that day. The week before when I sat with him & went over the floor plan he took the time to go over timelines & every possible option . On the day of our wedding he was there to help with every detail from helping set up the tables to the exact layout we wanted to calming my nerves before the ceremony as I was starting to feel overwhelmed he was my right hand man. I wish we could go back & do our wedding all over again because we loved every minute of it. I recommend everyone to look at the American Hotel for any event you may be having. The staff is incredible, the food was absolutely delicious.

    The American Hotel = Outstanding!

    My husband and I got married in March 2019. When we first started researching wedding venues, we were looking for three big elements: a large dance floor, great food and an adequate number of bathroom stalls! We ended up looking at about eight venues before booking in March 2018. From the moment you walk into a venue, you do get a feeling of how a wedding would play out; and when we walked into The American Hotel, we knew we had found the perfect place. We first met with Joy and she showed us around the various ballrooms and the hotel rooms upstairs. The following Sunday, we went to the brunch buffet to try the food before booking – but when we sat down in the Majestic Ballroom, with its’ gold interior and beautiful crystal chandeliers, we knew this place was totally us! We ended up using all of the three rooms for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception; and reserved all of the available hotel rooms for our family and friends. After booking, Joy and Jim were basically my wedding gurus. I always ask a lot of questions and I think I broke a new record when it came to wedding planning. Thankfully, Jim and Joy really knew how to handle an anxious bride-to-be - they are true professionals and excel in the wedding industry! I can honestly say that if anything did go wrong at our wedding – we had absolutely no clue. Everything was beautiful and exactly the way it was discussed in the many emails and meetings. And, all of the supporting staff members that helped during our wedding did a great job! We really cannot thank Jim and Joy enough for all that they did in making our wedding unforgettable!
