We had our wedding reception at this beautiful hotel with all wedding guest being from out of town. It was the perfect venue that was able to provide us with a beautiful ballroom, amazing hotel rooms, and a great location in downtown Muscatine along the river. The view is breathtaking and our guests are still talking about our wedding at the Merrill. We had the perfect day celebrating with all our family and friends at this amazing venue. Special thanks to Leanna who helped plan our wedding reception and put in lots of time to make sure our day was incredible!Sent on 04/12/2019

An amazing experience
Working with the Merrill was such a great experience! From the first time we met I felt like I was working with a friend. They were attentive to my needs & had a great eye for detail. On the day of our reception the banquet staff blew it out if the water! The banquet hall was stunning & service was wonderful. Our guests raved about the food served & loved the amenities offered with staying at the hotel as well. I highly recommend the Merrill Hotel!Sent on 04/20/2019
