modern, luxurious and cozy
Had my wedding reception here this past August, and I couldn’t be more happy that I made that decision. The Row is such a unique venue because unlike other hotels that generally have the same interior look, The Row is a one of a kind boutique hotel. The minute I stepped in, I was kindly greeted by the valet staff as well as the front desk receptionist. My first impression was the beauty of the details in the front lobby. Looks like something straight out of Pinterest. The hotel also has a very distinct scent that reminds me of a warm winter candle, so pleasant! As soon as I saw the beautiful white staircase going up to the ballroom, I knew this is where I wanted to have my wedding reception! It’s a very versatile venue that caters to almost any wedding style. The events coordinator, Abigail, played a huge part influencing my decision in picking The Row as the venue. She is so attentive and polite! All of my questions were answered promptly and her flexibility in adjusting to all of the wedding planning details was phenomenal. Not only is the venue absolutely gorgeous, but the food is to die for! All of my guests loved the hors d’oeuvres as well as the dinner. The suite that we stayed in was so cozy, it made the whole experience all the better. I 100% recommend The Row as a venue for any event as well as a great place to stay!Sent on 09/10/2019

Phenomenal experience at The Row
What can I say but, wow, it has been a month since our wedding and we still think about how lucky we were to have been able to celebrate our special day at The Row. Abby and her team were absolutely impeccable, from our first planning visit through to the end of the night on our actual wedding day. We were shocked at how wonderfully the event turned out, and, frankly, so was every one of our guests. I don’t think that anywhere else could have knocked it out of the park on every single detail the way the team at The Row did.Sent on 09/18/2019
First, the hotel itself is incredibly unique, drawing back on its history as a manufacturing plant. We visited a lot of locations, and just thought a hotel venue couldn’t work for us until we visited The Row – its character shines through with the spiral staircase and scrap metal sculptures, and its boutique size made it feel like the building had been built for our event. The entire event space -an entire floor- was reserved for our event, and it included a separate cocktail hour area, an outdoor patio, a lounge area, and the main ballroom. It felt much more like a rented a mansion than a hotel event space.
Secondly, food is very important to us, and this was one of the key components in our choice of venue. James and the food/beverage staff really knocked it out of the park and put together a unique menu for our event, tailoring it to our preferences and our theme. Frankly, it’s not easy to maintain food standards when catering to a large group like we had, but the team managed to create a meal for everyone that was every bit as well done as our tasting for four – which is to say it was phenomenal. Try a meal at the hotel, or even just a cocktail and a snack at the lobby bar, and you will see what I mean. Everything was prepared fresh just behind the door to the ballroom, and it showed.
Lastly, and most importantly, we can’t say enough great things about the staff. This is what really sets the best places apart. Abby was a true partner with us every step of the way, and without her help we couldn’t have created the unique wedding that we wanted. We had some requests that, I am sure, were unusual. Rather than be discouraged, Abby was excited by the challenge and worked with us to make sure everything went just how we envisioned it. On the actual day of the wedding, it became clear how many people were working behind the scenes to make our event happen.
I am an honest rater and can usually find something to criticize, but in this case there really is nothing that could have been better. I can see why The Row has been rated as a top 50 hotel in the world by Travel+Leisure magazine. Thank you for everything, and we will certainly be back for a drink whenever we are back in the area.
