    A beautiful wedding experience at the Menger Hotel

    We were very surprised that a hotel as beautiful as the Menger Hotel could be so affordable for a wedding. Zara Marrero helped manage the wedding through multiple changes due to the corona virus. The flexibility Menger and Zara demonstrated was amazing. The hotel staff were all friendly and very accommodating to all our requests.

    Incredible Experience

    During what is almost always a high stress event, working with the Menger Hotel made the experience as stress free as possible. Working with Ms Zarelda Marrero, Director of Catering, and the primary point-of-contact for planning the wedding was a very enjoyable experience. The Menger Hotel was very flexible as plans changed, i.e. needing a larger room for the reception. Having rooms blocked for guests was very easy and we were kept up-to-date with the names of guests who had made reservations. We had a live band and the set-up, etc was transparent to us; The Menger took care of everything. If we had to do it over again and we had our choice of venues for our wedding it would be the Historic Menger Hotel.
