My husband and I decided on a small wedding so after looking over the venue options in the hotel we decided to use the presidential suite for our ceremony and cocktail hour. The suite is amazing! 1800 Square feet plus an 800 square-foot balcony. Two-story living room, dining room, billiards room, amazing bedroom and bathrooms and full kitchen was perfect for us. Linda the general manager for the hotel was great. After the ceremony and cocktail hour we we had everyone for dinner at Old Maryland Grill in the Belvedere room. The food was amazing and was the perfect intimate setting for our smaller wedding. At Old Maryland Grill everyone was great, from Dru the private party manager, and mangers Brian and Venus to the General manager Steve, and our server Amanda! We can not thank them enough! It was a perfect evening and also was a great place for the breakfast the day after for our guests and family also staying in the Hotel at University of Maryland!Sent on 11/25/2019

My son was just married on June 15, 2019 and we used The Hotel a the University of Maryland to hold the reception and to reserve for guests staying overnight. The hotel is just about 3 years old and is beautiful, also conveniently located. The rooms are large and comfortable with state of the art technology. Cedric Frazier was in charge of our event and we could not have been in better hands. He was patient and generous and has an incredible background in the hospitality/catering field. He was thoughtful and respectful about our needs while also contributing his creativity throughout the process. The staff throughout the hotel was pleasant and everyone was helpful. Having hosted numerous events this size, my daughter's wedding 2 years ago being the most recent, I can honestly say that the pricing is fair and the food was excellent. Our guests were quite complimentary about the event and their stay. Do not overlook this venue and definitely seek Cedric out. You will not be sorry.Sent on 06/21/2019

Perfect venue for UMD alum! Great experience :)
We had our wedding at The Hotel UMD on 6/1/19. Our event was in the penthouse ballroom and our guests loved the ability to move between the ballroom and the terrace throughout the night.Sent on 06/08/2019
When we first booked our wedding we were working with Sheila. After about a year Sheila left The Hotel and we were paired with Cedric. We were so happy that Cedric inherited our wedding! He had all of our prior communication with Sheila and ensured anything we agreed on before was seen through. I'm also very Type A and pay a lot of attention to details and Cedric was very patient with all my questions/inquiries. Cedric made sure to keep in touch with us throughout the whole process and even gave us his cell phone number for the whole wedding weekend in case we had any questions! He was quick and responsive, which is something any couple needs for the venue coordinator. He is also calm/relaxed instead of a very high strung wedding planner. It is a nice change of pace. You could tell Cedric cared about making sure we were happy. At the food tasting, he surprised us with appetizers to taste because I couldn't figure out how we can serve appetizers if we didn't taste them. Also, we booked the governor's suite Friday night so the girls could get ready Saturday, and he gave us a complimentary additional night in the suite. This was AMAZING because we did not have to worry about being displaced or moving our items from hotel room to hotel room.
Obviously the venue is gorgeous and if you are a UMD alum this is the perfect venue, but working with Cedric is the cherry on top.
Thank you Cedric!!
