    The best!

    Choosing this venue was one of the best wedding decisions I made. At every step the staff was kind, professional and accommodating. We had to postpone our wedding due to Covid and the Desmond were wonderful about working with us to find a new date. Every detail was taken care of and the food was amazing. There were actually multiple weddings the same weekend as ours but I would never have known because they made us feel like the most important people in the world.

    Excellent Wedding Hotel

    We used The Desmond Hotel as our full service hotel for my daughter's wedding at French Creek Golf Club. They handled all of the transportation needs for us, as well as the room block, welcome and after parties, and a delicious brunch. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. They all work together like a family to make everything so easy for anyone hosting a wedding. Meredith was amazing with our room block and advice. She is so friendly and helpful. Cynthia did a fantastic job with all of our catering needs, and Steve handled all the transportation for us. This was a rescheduled Covid wedding and I was in contact with Meredith for almost two years and can't thank her enough for all of her assistance during that time. If you are able to book the Presidential Parlor, it was the perfect suite for the bride and her maids to get ready in on wedding day. With the adjoining guest rooms, it made a perfect family apartment for us during our 5 days in the hotel. I highly recommend The Desmond Hotel team and look forward to returning there any time I am in the area!

    The Desmond Malvern, a DoubleTree by Hilton's reply:

    Thank you Susan! You were such a pleasure to work with! We already miss you! Please stop in and see us again when visiting your family!
    Sincerely,
    The Desmond Team

    Best day EVER!!!

    1000 stars. I cannot emphasize enough how fantastic the Desmond was. We were a covid couple who decided to put things off from summer, 2020 to summer, 2021. I have told everyone I know planning a wedding to look especially at the covid shutdown era reviews, because that will tell you which venues/vendors will work with you when you are hit with the unpredictable. We were able to seamlessly postpone our wedding without a fuss or any extra fees: the policy was if the Desmond could not give us the wedding of our dreams within 8 weeks of the wedding, we could postpone without any stipulations. Kevin was fantastic. Throughout this process, he was reassuring, calming, positive, and would take time to talk to us on the phone about any questions we had. For our final planning meetings, we were always with Kevin for at least 2 hours: he made sure every little detail was what we wanted and took the time to connect with us on a personal level. The wedding day itself was seamless. We both live out of town but were holding the wedding in my hometown, so we had a lot of out-of-town guests. So many people raved to us about how helpful the staff was for any question they had. The food was outstanding and the cocktail hour area perfect. We had almost 200 people & there was plenty of space to move around without feeling crowded. Andy, Carol, and all the staff for our wedding were just incredible and they were there to help us before we even could ask the question. They brought us into the ballroom to see it & take some pictures before all the guests came in, & had our bridal party line up for our first dance after walking in which was an awesome touch. We did a Pittsburgh cookie table which can be a lot of work and the Desmond was all for it-and it looked amazing!!! The Desmond staff set up and broke down everything for us; we didn’t have to worry about a thing. They accommodated our group in the Fork & Bottle restaurant for the after party food/drinks which the out of towners all appreciated!! So many people told us this was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. I could go on and on. The Desmond was fantastic. We wanted a hotel wedding and they more than delivered. It was the day of our dreams!!
