    Beautiful hotel and great experience for our wedding

    My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception here on the 17th of April, and it turned out wonderfully. We originally had a date of September 19th 2020, but with COVID things changed a lot. They were very accommodating to all of our changes, and Stacey was a very big help to us when the original wedding coordinator left. She was very professional and helpful, making sure every single piece came together for our special day. The guests complimented us non stop about what a great venue it was, how fantastic the dinner was, and how effortlessly things went. I am so happy we went with the Astor for our wedding and I would recommend it to anyone! Affordable and classy.

    I organized a church event at the Astor Hotel working through Brit Grosenick, Director of Events. We were unsure of the number of attendees and of course working on a tight church budget. Brit helped us design a fantastic event in the grand spaces and as our RSVPs rose to 500, she worked with us to make sure everyone would be comfortable. Her team on day of was very professional and hustled to accommodate the large crowd. The food from the new menu was good - we had both hot and cold appetizers including lots of gluten free options. She also worked with us to concoct a signature cocktail which was a hit. We were very satisfied with the Astor and would return again.
