We absolutely loved the Carleton!
We just had our wedding reception here on 8/10/19. The catering manager Maura is fantastic at her job. Always answered our emails in a timely response when we had questions. She put our minds at ease. She really doubles as a day of coordinator she’s willing to lend a helping hand decorating, she set up the place cards, led the bridal party in the ballroom when to walk in for introductions, brought our cards back up to our hotel room, her and her staff took care of boxing up all our decorations at the end of the evening. She was always present during the evening which we really appreciated! The venue itself is beautiful it’s not just a ballroom like typical venues. So many places to take great photos. There’s a separate seating area and bar area for guests who don’t want to hear loud music later in the evening to relax and chat in. Another small room called the Colombian we set up a photobooth and had a second bar there(both were huge hits). Our wedding was 3 weeks ago but everyone still is complimenting us how awesome their food was and how much they loved the venue!Sent on 09/04/2019

Best. Wedding. Reception. Ever!!
We had the best experience at our wedding reception at the Carleton! Maura is a great communicator and she helped our day flow smoothly. The staff was very professional and ensured that our guests had an excellent time. The Carleton provided beautiful linens, tables, and chairs in their updated ballroom. They collaborated well with our other vendors like the Photo Booth operator, DJ, and photographer. One of our favorite parts about having the reception at the Carleton was that our guests just had to travel up the elevator to get to their rooms once the party ended!Sent on 09/14/2019
