Everything you need in one place!

We got married and held our reception here in November. Ashley was wonderful to work with and was able to quickly get back to us with any questions we had. Her and her husband were very accommodating to our food allergies and even customized their menu to make it completely dairy free (as well as some gluten free options)! They offer take-home family style samples of their menu to taste test in the comfort of your own home. Ashley allowed us to come the day before to set everything up (this is based on their schedule availability), which made our wedding day even smoother. She went out of her way to assist us and check-in throughout the whole weekend. There is a bridal suite available for use on the second floor that includes a table, chairs, window to the main area, private bathroom, mirror/makeup area, clothing rack, and hangers. It was the perfect place for everyone to get their hair and makeup done, as well as a place for our bridal party to leave their things during the wedding so they could change later. Ashley was there to assist us during the ceremony to help everything run smoothly which we held on the bottom floor with ~90 people. After the ceremony we walked to a park ~3 blocks away for a few photos while our guests moved upstairs (stairway or elevator available) for cocktail hour. When we returned from photos, Ashley was instantly there with a plate of appetizers for the two of us to eat a little before heading upstairs to join our guests for part of cocktail hour. We later moved back downstairs for the first dances, dinner, toasts, etc. Dinner was served quickly by some lovely staff and was delicious. The package included an open bar (premium option available with a small upgrade) for both cocktail hour and the reception. We were also each able to have a custom cocktail served to our guests. The package also included the appetizers, crudité, charcuterie station, first course (salad or soup), bread/butter, 3 dinner options with 2 sides, and a champagne toast. There was also soda, coffee, and tea available. The building is large enough to accommodate everyone dancing, but also small enough to keep the evening intimate. We cannot thank Ashley and her staff enough for such a wonderful day/evening and for making our dreams come true at such reasonable prices. There were no hidden fees thrown at us and there are many additional add-on options available as well! If you are looking for a venue that can offer ceremony/reception services indoors in Lackawanna, this is the place you want to go! Also bonus points for being LGBTQIA+ friendly!

What can I say…

We LOVE Hotel Anthracite!!! Kelly and her team were amazing and really made our wedding dreams come true. The staff was very accommodating and welcoming. We loved having almost everything done in house. Including the ceremony, reception, catering, rehearsal dinner, breakfast the morning after, and accommodations for everyone. The ballroom is gorgeous and the courtyard made a perfect location for the ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was too! Would recommend 100%
