Do yourself a favor... if you're thinking about booking The Desmond for your wedding, do it NOW. They were phenomenal at every single step of the process. It happened to be our first venue tour, and Kevin really wowed us. We visited a few other places to make sure we were certain, but every other place paled in comparison to The Desmond. Everything from the food to the service to the team were top notch, and they take care of so many details for you. We had centerpieces, uplighting, the cake (and they even add a chocolate covered strawberry to the plate!), linens, table settings, honeymoon suite included in our package. They also made sure we had clear expectations and the contract and plan outline were intricate. You name it... we had nothing to worry about.Sent on 11/12/2017
Kevin (THE MAN), Alyssa, the banquet managers Andy and Kevin, our server Carol, and everyone in between gave us nothing but the best. The food was delicious, and during our tasting, we talked with Kevin for more than an hour. He made us feel truly welcome.
We heard rave reviews from every single one of our guests about how The Desmond went above and beyond. One small example... my aunt has a dietary restriction and can't have gluten. We didn't know this in advance, so when she didn't eat her crab cake, the server asked what the problem was, and when she told them, they brought back lump crab meat so she could still enjoy her meal. WHAT?! WHO EVEN DOES THAT?!
They also worked with us to get all of our out-of-town guests (the majority of our headcount) rooms, even though the hotel was absolutely packed that week/weekend.
Phenomenal all around, and would get married here over and over and over again. You should seriously just pick this venue and thank us later. We love every. single. aspect. of The Desmond and will be visiting for dinner and happy hour soon. :)

The Perfect Evening
To say everything was perfect may sound like an exaggeration, but, everything, in fact, was perfect. Kevin went out of his way to make sure the day ran smoothly and every single staff person was a delight to work with. The room helped create an ideal environment for the ceremony. The food was great and the party was a blast! A wedding day can be hectic, for sure, as well as amazingly wonderful. Everyone and everything at the Desmond helped create a spectacular celebration for our daughter.Sent on 12/12/2018

Beautiful venue with amazing staff!
I had a wedding at the Desmond Hotel in October and I have nothing but great things to say about the staff! Kevin and Andy were amazing and did everything they could to make our day special! The ballroom and conservatory were beautiful and classy; my guests said nothing but great things about how pretty it was. The food was amazing as well! Nothing but great things to say! Highly recommended!Sent on 12/11/2018
