    Megan and her team were fantastic! She really helped us plan out our entire reception in the Ballroom. The food was perfect, the atmosphere was perfect, and I didn't have to worry about anything. Wonderful people, wonderful service.

    This was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding. To be honest, we didn't look at any other venues. Once I walked into the ballroom and saw the old fashioned tin roof with GORGEOUS chandeliers, I was sold. This was where we were going to have our wedding. Also, if you want to have amazing food at your wedding that your guests will continue to rave about months later, you have to book The Grand Hotel. Rick's does an amazing job with the food! Everything was delicious. We have had so many compliments about the food! Megan Lamm was awesome! She made sure we had all the details for our wedding and that everything ran smoothly. She was an absolute charm to work with! :D

    Overall, it was the best weekend ever. Our wedding party and close family stayed at the hotel with us Friday through Sunday morning. Then we had brunch at Rick's Sunday morning after the wedding. All our guests loved how different each of the rooms were decorated. Jacque was so awesome at accommodating all our needs (and we were kind of needy) but she handled us very well! :D I can't say enough how nice and professional the whole team at The Grand Hotel was. We could not have had a more perfect wedding.

    Great venue and one we love to be invited to photograph at. The entire team is wonderful and very kind and they work hard at each event. The ballrooms are always pristine and presentable and they staff works hard on the little details like keeping drinks full and tables clean. We highly recommend this venue!
