Oh my gosh they were FANTASTIC! We did a 3 week engagement (military couple) and Tricia Shaw went above and beyond consistently to help us plan and make sure everything was perfect. Because of her attention to detail I was able to relax about this quick wedding and enjoy the planning. The food was delicious, the staff was great as well. All night they kept asking if we needed anything and made sure everything ran smoothly. Beyond that they upgraded our room and Tricia left us Mr&Mrs. koozies in our room with a sweet note AND the front desk provided us with local brews and another sweet note. Everyone had a great time! Oh and the hotel is great for taking photos as well!

Loved this place for our wedding party hotel!
We used the Kimpton as our primary wedding block and had the best time! We initially selected them because we LOVE the Katherine (the restaurant in the hotel). The rooms were beautiful (they gave us a suite), the beds were super comfy (we may be ordering a mattress from Kimptonstyle.com), and the game room in the basement was the best play to spend time with our wedding guests. Shayla from Group Sales was amazing and so easy to work with! Everything about this hotel was perfect! Give it 5+++ stars.

We hosted our ceremony, reception, after party, and rehearsal dinner here and could not be more pleased with how it all went. The food was delicious. The venue itself was gorgeous. The staff (specifically Tricia, Kelly and Kellen) worked tirelessly to make sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing. I cannot recommend this place enough.
