    Customer Service was top notch

    If I could give one word to describe my experience with the Holiday Inn and Suites it would be….”WOW”. As we were setting up for the event we met the wedding coordinator for the Holiday Inn, Madelon. We were immediately impressed on her knowledge of weddings and her desire to make this event for the bride and groom the best ever. There were quite a bit of moving parts during this event and she was always on top of everything and willing to help. Later in the evening we met Dawn, who I believe was the banquet manager, and let me tell you she was just as amazing as Madelon. One of the most impressive things that was done is flipping a room where the ceremony was taking place to become a room full of rounds for the reception. Besides Madelon and Dawn, I’d also like to recognize the cooks for some amazing food, and both bartenders for an amazing positive attitude all night long. If you are looking for a place to have your wedding reception, I highly recommend checking out the Holiday Inn and Suites in Lake Elmo. If I could give them a 10 star review I would.

    Fantastic hotel venue

    We originally planned our wedding for May 2020 and were all set to go. The planning process was great - Lauren is extremely responsive and answered any question we threw at her. The venue itself is fantastic and the big windows, roof beams, and draping look great (extra decorations aren't really needed).

    ...Then COVID happened. Again, Lauren was great and we were able to quickly reschedule our entire event to August 2020, at the time thinking we'd surely be OK to hold our big wedding by then. About a month before our new date with cases still going up, we decided to pull the plug. Even though that was a hard decision, Lauren was a fantastic help throughout.

    So in short, while we didn't actually have our wedding at the Pavilion, we would still recommend the venue. The venue itself is beautiful, reasonably priced, and Lauren and her team are extremely helpful!

    The Pavilion at Holiday Inn & Suites Lake Elmo's reply:

    Thank you so much Jennifer for the kind words! It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and help plan out your big day and we are sorry things didn't work out how they were planned. You have been awesome to work with through all of this. It has been a trying year for everyone and for you to reach out and send in a review without having your wedding, is very much appreciated!
