    Mr. and Mrs. P. Farina

    We were very pleased with everything connected with our daughter’s wedding reception. In addition to the Carleton being a beautiful and functional venue, the service, dinner and bar were all excellent. We are still hearing compliments from our guests regarding the dinner selections, the steak in particular. We plan to have lunch or dinner at the hotel restaurant soon. We were especially pleased with the highly professional and attentive service provided by Maura Wais before and during the reception. She was always helpful and on top of things. We highly recommend The Carleton Hotel.
