    Tracey was the manager for our event. She was very responsive even when the hotel is experiencing their brand change. She and her team was very accommodating to our needs and helped us create a great event that is within our budget. We decided the venue about 3 month away from our wedding date and all the arrangement and meetings went quickly and smoothly. Our day wouldn't been so great and wonderful without the whole team's hard work. I would definitely recommend this venue for wedding events.

    My husband and I knew that we would have our wedding at The Gwen - we had gone there on our very first date, so it just seemed natural that when we got to the point of planning our wedding, we would check out the function space. Not only was the space perfect for our wedding - it had everything we wanted! Separate space for our Ceremony, with colors and décor that matched my vision perfectly to the gorgeous pre-function space for Cocktails and ballroom for dinner & dancing. We were absolutely thrilled with our day - it was pure perfection and I urge everyone to go take a look. It is stunning!
