We needed to find a location for our wedding (ceremony only) last minute and The Carleton was able to step up and accommodate our needs. To say we were pleased with our experience is an understatement. The staff was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed. Maura was so helpful and always smiling. The Grand Ballroom was perfect for our ceremony and the hotel provides for a perfect backdrop for wedding photos both in and outdoors. We can’t thank the Carleton enough for making our wedding everything we hoped for and we will be back to visit again in the future.Sent on 11/17/2019

Exceptional service and a perfect location!
My wife and I could not have asked for a better location, service and experience than we had at The Carleton Hotel of Oakpark. Maura was part of our journey leading up to our special day and she went over and beyond to make sure our day was truly special. She has a knack for details, is highly organised, a creative eyes for aesthetics/design and worked with us on within our budget. She and the property come HIGHLY recommended.Sent on 11/19/2019
