The best luxury hotel ever
You have to get married at the Conrad, best freaking hotel ever! Ashley Gorden is amazing and Engel our wedding assistant concierge guy. Engel was there every step of the way on my wedding day, he did everything he could to take the nervousness I was feeling away! Ashley is awesome, she’s very attentive and she helped out a whole lot when it came to my catering needs. I love the Conrad hotel I will definitely be coming back there again! The hotel is so beautiful to get married that you didn’t need much decorations for your wedding b/c it was a beautiful venue. Thank you Engel and Ashley! And Louis Sanchez my new friend!Sent on 08/15/2019

My original wedding venue canceled on me a little over two months before my wedding. After searching for a new venue, we came across the Conrad and the wonderful Ashley Gorden. Ashley took what we wanted and made it 100 times better than we could have ever expected. She helped calm my nerves with having to pretty much starting the planning all over, helping accommodate all I originally wanted. Her attention to detail and assistance throughout the whole process is something to be valued. The staff at the hotel was superb. The catering team was phenomenal. The food is still talked about a week after the wedding. The Hor d'ouvers were a hit (highly recommend the empanadas), the dessert bar was exceptional, and the late night bites were a perfect touch to end by far the best night of our lives. This venue is worth every penny, and you will not be disappointed.Sent on 06/30/2019

Conrad is everything
We originally, in our heads, were ready to get married at the Ritz or the W in Fort Lauderdale... we saw a pop up that the Conrad just opened 3 days ago. We said why not just go look... I went to the meeting and met with Ashley Gordon, I did the entire tour with her knowing I still wanted to get married at the Ritz or W. I was walking through the Conrad hoping there was one thing that would turn me off. I left went to the Ritz and called Ashley Gordon and immediately apologized and said please can do we this tour again with an open mind. Once again, we did the tour and again not only did I not find one flaw, but fell more and more in love. We fell in love with the staff, Ashley Gordon, the new contemporary feel, and the over all atmosphere. We planned for 17 months with Ashley and I might add we are not the easiest customers. Our hopes were big and our requests were bigger. ASHLEY GORDON MADE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE. Check out our pictures because they speak for themselves. WE HAD THE MOST MAGICAL WEDDING EVER!!! And it would not have happened without Ashley Gordon’s passion and the staff of the Conrad. Only get married at the Conrad! I guarantee you will have the best wedding ever.Sent on 01/22/2019

Perfect Wedding Venue in Every Way!
My husband and I could not have dreamt up a better wedding venue and team! Everything about the Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach surpassed our expectations. With most of our guests traveling in from out of town, the Conrad was not only our ceremony and reception venue, but it was also our home base for the entire wedding weekend. To start, the hotel property is brand new, and the guest rooms are something every other hotel surrounding it should be envious of. Our guests could not stop talking about the beautiful property, great location, and incredible service. As the bride/host, it was so calming to know that my guests were being exceptionally taken care of all weekend long. This excellent and thoughtful service was matched by the catering and events team as well. Senior Catering Sales Manager, Ashley Gordon and her team went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly what we wanted (and then some), and completely stress free. Ashley was there to help guide us through the planning process. It was easy to see that she loves what she does, and genuinely wanted to make sure we were happy. She loves her job and it shows. On our wedding day, Ashley was there (well into the evening) to make sure everything went perfectly. Many other members of the staff from the valet, to banquet captions & bartenders, and even housekeeping worked in harmony as a team to seamlessly made every guest feel welcome. Each request we asked for from the hotel was a pleasure rather than a burden. As far as the wedding venue space goes, the ceremony space offers breathtaking panoramic true oceanfront views. The reception space is perfectly modern yet warm, and can be fully decorated, or look absolutely gorgeous even with minimal decoration. The cocktail hour hors d’oeurves and the reception dinner was something you would read about in Bon Appetit. Each course was prepared with love to match the events of the evening. A wedding steak is not just a wedding steak when done at the Conrad, a visual masterpiece only outdone by the taste. Thank you to everyone at the Conrad for making our wedding weekend so special, we are so grateful to have worked with such a special team!!Sent on 12/02/2018

My March 17th wedding at Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach was an absolute dream thanks to the incomparable Ashley Gorden and the rest of the tremendous catering and hotel staff. As our wedding venue had to be switched only several months prior to our event due to Hurricane Irma, we had limited time to work with Ashley, but throughout the process, she made us feel incredibly comfortable, and assured that we would be taken care of. Beyond being professional, detail oriented and organized throughout our planning experience, Ashley knows how to orchestrate a tremendous wedding--day of, she was on top of everything, making sure that we adhered to our timeline, she helped us find any items we had misplaced, and she was responsive and communicative when we needed anything. In short, she made us confident that everything was going as we wanted it to! Our outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour were stunning, and our guests could not get over the sweeping views of the ocean. There was no shortage of cocktails or appetizers thanks to Ashley's coordination. Overall, from the delicious food to the gorgeous ballroom that held our reception, our wedding was flawless. We couldn't be happier to have chosen this venue and I don't believe that there is one more beautiful in South Florida!!Sent on 03/21/2018

I signed my contract with the Conrad Ft Lauderdale prior to the hotel even opening. As frightening as that was, Ashley Gorden and her team kept me up to date on everything within the hotel. Upon arriving, checking the car in at valet with Alejando and Bibien was flawless. The two of them and their team helped with unloading 3 cars full of luggage and wedding decorations with no questions asked. All of our guests had no problems with checking into their rooms with great costumer service from the front desk and concierges, Richard at the front desk is a breathe of fresh air to work with! All of the rooms are gorgeous! From the Junior Suite Oceanview to the Two-Bedroom Suites each room has a stunning view of Fort Lauderdale equipped with endless cooking supplies, electronics, top fo the line and updated furniture and bedding. Ashley Gorden was a pleasure to work with as any question was answered the same day leading up to the wedding. The week and weekend of the wedding she made me feel like I was her main priority. Everything on her end ran flawless! Chef Jorge- OMG the food was exceptional: my guest for days did not stop speaking about how amazing the food was (we had food set up as stations). The staff at the Conrad is exceptional. I thank you ALL for everything over my wedding weekend. It was successful due to the help you all provided!
On my wedding day; Ashley and her staff constantly checked on me and my husband during the day time. During the ceremony which we had outside, everything was exactly as we practiced during rehearsal with a very smooth transition into cocktail hour and then up to the ballroom. The whole weekend, I felt that my husband and I and our friends and family were the hotels main priority.

My wedding was everything I ever dreamed of and more thanks to the incredible staff and the gorgeous venue at the Conrad Ft. Lauderdale Beach. I had a really tough planning experience because my first venue closed after sustaining damage from Hurricane Irma. I had to re-plan my wedding all over again with only 4 months until my big day. Lucky for me, I found Ashley Gordon (Senior Catering Manager and Coordinator) at the Conrad. Ashley and her team went out of their way to help me book, plan, and achieve everything I wanted for my big day in just a few short months. They answered questions, coordinated to transfer all my plans with vendors, planned food tastings, made special menus, ordered my favorite chairs and linens, kept me organized with detailed timelines, and set up everything on the day exactly as I wanted. The staff, especially Ashley and Manuel (Banquet Manager), were absolutely incredible and a pleasure to work with. They made me feel like anything I ever wanted was not only possible, but that they could make it happen in the blink of an eye. I am not the only one still gushing about this fantastic team and venue. My guests are still complimenting me on how they had never seen such a flawless wedding, which speaks volumes about how hard this team worked. The team at the Conrad is really special, detail oriented, attentive, professional, and focused on making sure that the bride and groom, as well as their families, are well taken care of and happy. They checked on me throughout our wedding day constantly and made sure my family and every guest was happy and comfortable. They made sure I ate (incredible food), had a drink in my hand, had any props that I needed whenever I needed them, and fixed the train of my dress to make sure I looked perfect, all with a smile and a hug waiting whenever I needed them. I will never be able to thank them enough for their incredible efforts to make sure that my wedding day was spectacular and one to remember.Sent on 01/30/2018
