Choosing the right room is the easy part. After that, there are a multitude of other things to accomplish.

We absolutely loved having our wedding reception at the Genesee Grande. The venue is beautiful (both the ballroom and photo locations), the food was absolutely delicious and plentiful, and the event was well staffed. The value you receive for the price is excellent. Best of all, the pricing is all-inclusive, straightforward, and transparent. There were no hidden fees that are often found at other venues (cake cutting/serving, dishware, food tasting, hors d'oevers, set up, etc.) The highlight of having our wedding at the Genesee Grande was getting to work with Jamie (the coordinator). Throughout every step of the way, he went above and beyond our expectations. He was so incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and full of life! He and his staff took care of all of the setup and decor and couldn't have done a better job. We highly recommend the Genesee Grande!Sent on 10/01/2019

I don't think my husband, guests, and I could say enough about our wedding and reception at the Genesee Grande Hotel. First, everything was seamless, the day of our wedding flew by without a hitch. Secondarily, the food and drink were incredible. We had our December 30th ceremony in the ballroom which was flipped over to hold all of the tables and food for the reception all during the cocktail hour. It was so beautiful. Working with Jamie throughout the planning process was easy. He's very enthusiastic, accommodating, and thorough, we were assured that everything we wanted would happen as we desired. Sheila handled most day-of things and she's a doll. Their experience was a huge help in catching things we hadn't thought of. The staff is genuine and super responsive. I will absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in central NY.Sent on 01/01/2018
