Best day ever
My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Mainland Terrace on Friday 9/13/19. Our wedding day was truly the best day every and The Mainland played a huge part in making our day perfect. Yes, the food, drinks, and cake were delicious and amazing, BUT the staff is absolutely phenomenal here... especially our maitre’d Kim and the event sales manager (our go-to guy), Austin. Jessica, the sales manager, was also wonderful at handling our hotel room block, breakfast vouchers, etc. Honestly, anyone we came in contact with who had something to do with our wedding, was excellent... from the front desk staff, to the servers and bartenders, and of course the rest of the Mainland Events team. Austin was super prompt, helpful, and courteous when answering my [many] questions and he also killed it as bartender the night of our wedding. Kim did an amazing job setting up the venue just the way we wanted it and made sure the event was executed flawlessly... and it certainly was! Kim made sure my husband and I were taken care of the whole night and we did not have to worry about a thing. We were able to fully enjoy our wedding and truly had the best time ever. All of our guests have been raving about it being the best wedding they’ve ever been to. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the Mainland/Holiday Inn staff! We would 100% recommend The Mainland to anyone. - Jeana & WilliamSent on 09/20/2019

Amazing food, service, and ambiance
We had our welcome dinner party and our morning after brunch for our wedding at The Mainland at Holiday Inn and both were absolutely perfect. The staff was so responsive and helpful the entire time leading up to the event. Our wedding weekend was in early August, during the height of the busy summer season, but Mainland / Holiday Inn bent over backwards making sure everything was perfect. The food was beyond our expectations - so fresh and delicious - and they continuously refilled the buffet. The bar had plenty of bartenders and they were personable and great at their jobs! The space was beautiful and comfortable. We didn't even need to get any decorations - they have beautiful table settings and centerpieces and the room itself feels like a private living room with tons of light, couches, and space for everyone to eat, lounge, and visit. All of our guests commented on how fantastic the space, food, and service was. Mainland was an amazing addition to our wedding weekend!Sent on 11/19/2019

Dream Come True
September bride here, this review is long overdue but certainly well-deserved:
We had the most incredible experience with Donna and her staff at the Mainland! We had our Wedding reception in the terrace room. This room is recently renovated and absolutely gorgeous. Working with Donna was a special treat, she is a ray of sunshine and made the planning process so effortless and fun. This venue is the whole package; we really loved how much it had to offer even outside of where the banquet was held—the clean hotel rooms and guest block, beer garden, fun games, fire pits, and the restaurant that is perfect for breakfast the morning after the big day. It is so easy to forget that you’re on 72—this place feels like a destination spot! The terrace room is elegant and all of our guests were blown away. The fireplace, farm tables, and fountains make the reception space feel inviting and like a perfectly executed vision from a Pinterest dream-board. My husband and I have food allergies and the staff was great about making sure that we were well taken care of. They made every detail special. Our wedding day felt like something out of a fairy tale all thanks to Donna and her wonderful team!Sent on 01/27/2019
