The American Hotel should be your first choice!
July the 18th was our big day. I cannot express how great our experience was at The American Hotel. Michelle Annese (venue manager), and her assistant went above and beyond. I could write a whole page of details on how she put her heart into making sure my day was magical and stress-free. With weddings being stressful enough, then we added Covid-19 into the mix. Many precautions were in place and Michelle even sanitized the bathrooms on a 20 minute cycle on top of everything else she did. Another plus is the charm of this venue allows minimal decorations as well. Best prices in comparison to any venue around our area. Again another bonus... the location of this building allows for beautiful photos at our local train station dock and bridge. I also want to mention the owner Margaret, although there was never a face to face due to her living location, she was very kind in our email conversations. There was no problem when we had to cancel our orginally date and reschedule due to the pandemic. No regrets on our choice, 100 percent satisfied!!!Sent on 07/20/2020

My husband and I had our wedding here last fall. We could not have asked for a better experience with the venue and Peter. He was beyond helpful, always took the time to answer our questions, made great vendor recommendations, and provided wonderful assistance night-of. Such a beautiful, historic space.Sent on 01/07/2018

This venue is a hidden gem as I like to call it! Set in a historical part of Staunton, VA; it gives the bride and groom a venue like none other-quaint and romantic . The outside is just as pretty as the inside-great for photography! Brian and his staff are great to work with! Perfect working area for your caterers! Definitely a location to consider when you are looking!
An absolutely gorgeous venue in downtown Staunton! Highly recommend!
