Overall we enjoyed the experience. The wedding coordinator helped me whenever I need it. The only bad thing I can say was, look at your contract carefully. But I was very pleased and stress free on the wedding day

My son's wedding was recently held here. It was the best wedding I ever attended, and not just because it was my son's. Everything was top notch and everyone had a great time!! I can't say enough great things about Megan, the wedding planner. Awesome with all of the details!!

The Gettysburg Hotel is a great venue to work with. They are always available for assistance if you need it. They offer top quality food and everything you need for your wedding under one roof.

When you have an event at The Gettysburg Hotel, you are creating your own kind of history. The building is beautiful, but the main ballroom, oh, what can I say? It's stunning. I love the old safe, as you can get very creative on how to utilize the space! The event team at The Gettysburg Hotel is top notch! The event team is wonderful to work with, and always have the client's best interests at heart. Don't wait, RUN to see the property!

Wow, what a BEAUTIFUL place!! The staff are experts and the food is exquisite. I would HIGHLY recommend them!

The Gettysburg Hotel is one of the nicest wedding and reception location around. Wanda and her staff are great and will take care of all of your needs. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is great and from a photography standpoint it has some of the nicest locations to do candid wedding photography. We highly recommend the Gettysburg Hotel and we know you will enjoy it also!!

I have had the priviledge of performing several weddings at The Gettyburg Hotel and every time I come away impressed with the beauty, the history and the quality of service they provide. I am always pleased to work with them and very much look forward to the next opportunity. I highly recommend The Gettysburg Hotel! You will not be disappointed!!!
