    Old Hollywood Glam Dream Wedding

    This hotel, its staff, and the overall experience was phenomenal. They treated us like royalty on our special day, and it was a great value for the price we spent considering it was an all inclusive event. We waited until they were decorated for Christmas to add to the flair of our event, and I am so glad we did. 12 Christmas trees lined the already stunning vast lobby of the hotel, and every single one of our guests was able to get great holiday photos.

    The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection's reply:

    Alli -
    Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your VERY special day! I am so happy Ron, Melissa and the rest of our staff were wonderful to work with. Nothing makes us happier than knowing your day was everything you expected and more!
    P.S. We love the holiday spirit of the Lobby too! It really does make the hotel feel a little more magical.
    Congrats again,
    Alli & Matt

    We just booked the Mayflower for our wedding reception and are super excited for our wedding. We were impressed by their responsiveness and willingness to work on us with the price/package and allowing us to view the venue several times.
