What a wonderful destination-wedding option!
Wonderful first impression! Megan and the rest of the hotel staff have been very attentive, friendly, and professional, thus far! We're still early in our planning process, but so far we're extremely impressed and happy we chose to have our wedding at Gettysburg Hotel!Sent on 01/10/2020

If you are thinking about booking this venue- do it! We had the most amazing wedding! Megan and her team did an phenomenal job. I have so many pros about this location such as
1. It is right in the middle of town. Easy location for guest to find
2. You can get married in the hotel or at the train station
3. Apart of our package was having the honeymoon suite which was 100% more helpful then we thought it would be.
4. Megan always helped me and answered all of my questions
5. The team was very dedicated and set up everything the way we imagined it
I would not have changed anything about our wedding and I am SO happy I booked our venue with the Gettysburg Hotel. Thank you for giving us the most wonderful day we could have ever asked for!

Christmas wedding made amazing
Megan and her team at the Hotel are fabulous!!! We had our ceremony and reception in the same room and they absolutely transformed the ballroom into something spectacular. Our guests said it was the best and most perfect wedding they have ever been to. Guests did not want to leave when it was over. We booked 14 guest rooms and reserved a room for a breakfast buffet the next day. Our wedding has literally been the talk around town and the talk among our friends. Everything stayed on point and made the night go by very quickly. The team at the Gettysburg Hotel will not disappoint you!!! Book your wedding there!!Sent on 01/06/2020

Everything at the hotel was perfect. The staff for weddings is phenomenal. They really know how to host a great wedding! They set up everything for us so all we had to worry about was bringing all the decorations and enjoying the weekend! The food was excellent, the atmosphere is beautiful, and our guests keep raving about our wedding. The hotel was the only venue we looked at during the planning process because the attention to detail (i won't spoil the little touches they provide when you tour) was so amazing, we didn't want to be disappointed with any other venue. Megan is truly an asset to the hotel and I hope they realize what a wonderful person they have coordinating and planning their wedding events. Casey, the banquet manager, is also so wonderful and kind.Sent on 10/01/2019

Professional, Polite, Perfect
The Gettysburg Hotel was an amazing place for us to have our wedding. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. All requests we put in, were answered. Megan made sure everything went smoothly and listened to what we said we wanted. The food was wonderful too.Sent on 07/09/2019

Experience was Above and Beyond
I would absolutely recommend the Gettysburg Hotel as a wedding venue. Their customer service and the experience they provide their couples is above and beyond any other venue we looked at. We worked with Megan at the Hotel and she made sure every aspect of our bid day ran smoothly. From decorating to managing the day-of logistics, she was incredibly helpful. She went above the call of duty and even helped me fix my dress when the bustle broke. The Hotel gives you the best experience on your wedding day, one where you don't have to worry about anything but enjoying and celebrating the moment.Sent on 07/06/2019

Experience of a lifetime
My husband and I had the most spectacular and stress-free wedding day at the Gettysburg Hotel. It all started with the amazing professionalism and organizational skills from Megan Wherley. Starting early on in the planning process, she was so attentive to details and so helpful with any and all questions I had regarding the day. Megan and her staff were so easy to work with, so it made my job that much easier. I knew if Megan said she was going to take care of something, it would get done efficiently.Sent on 06/27/2019
Megan was very in tune with my vision (which, by the way, was not very detailed) and she hit the nail on the head with the decor even with the little information I gave her. If you're unsure, just tell Megan to use her best judgement! It was also so helpful not to have to worry about my decor; I dropped it off the day before and it was all set up and taken down by the staff and organized for me to easily pack in my car the day after the wedding.
The wedding day itself was perfect. Megan helped coordinate our ceremony at the Train Station and made sure everything ran organized, smoothly and on time.
The dinner options were spectacular. The chef was also able to accommodate my guest with a food allergy. I remember looking at the food on the buffet table and knowing that my guests would not leave hungry! We used Jennifer from Main Street Sweets for our cupcakes and they were DELICIOUS! The details on the cupcakes were exactly what we had hoped for and our guests couldn't give enough compliments about the flavors.
Megan and her staff were so attentive to not only mine and my husband's needs during the reception, but also made sure our families and guests got the royal treatment as well. All of our guests complimented on the politeness and service of the staff during dinner and the reception.
At the end of the night, there were nice treats in our room to welcome us in for the evening, along with any presents that we received that night.
I cannot write enough about how amazing our ENTIRE experience was with the Gettysburg Hotel. It was truly a day that will NEVER be forgotten by us or our families and guests. I'd go through the wedding planning process and get married all over again!! Don't hesitate to contact Megan to enjoy the same great service!

A truly unforgettable wedding
I knew that I wanted to get married in a Gettysburg, but my husband needed a bit of coaxing. That’s what I told Megan when I met her in May of 2018 to tour the venue while I was out there for work, and to my shock she was more than understanding. We had been to Gettysburg a few times before for weekend vacations with my family and loved the area, but he was stuck on getting married in our home state of CT to accommodate more friends and family. After a few months of looking at venues near us, I finally convinced him to come and check out The Gettysburg Hotel and meet Megan with me on a Sunday and instantly he was hooked. Not only is the space perfect for a couple of history nerds like us, but Megan truly set us both at ease that day when we bombarded her with tons of questions and she had every answer. And it was nothing short of that for the next 10 months leading up to our wedding, especially not being local to the area and working with her to plan it from afar. Everything was done through email which was fantastic, and she juggled numerous silly questions and countless redundant emails from the both of us-ultimately leading to the absolutely perfect day in May for us to say I Do. If you are a newly engaged couple looking to have a memorable wedding experience I mean it when I say look no further than The Gettysburg Hotel. The value for the amount we paid was incomparable, the entire staff was so accommodating, the venue was incredibly amazing, the vendors they work with are truly wonderful, but it is really Megan who is a true star. Also, if you can, opt to have your ceremony on the historic train platform right behind the hotel, and get the ice cream bar for dessert- our guests are STILL raving over it!Sent on 06/28/2019

Having a destination wedding, my biggest concern was how difficult it would be to plan everything from five hours away. Megan Wherley and the team at the Gettysburg Hotel quickly put my mind at ease. They could not have made the process easier! The communication with Megan was timely and thorough. She was dedicated to making sure our day was special and flawless. Not only did she work with us well, she built relationships with our vendors to ensure everything and everyone was where it needed to be. The venue itself was fantastic. We loved the historic element of the train station and reception hall (an old bank that still has the vault in the back). It made for some excellent pictures. Additionally, the building was well maintained and the hotel rooms were very comfortable. Honestly, I could not think of one thing we would have changed. Thanks to Megan, our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives.Sent on 07/21/2019

Beautiful Intimate Brunch Reception
We had a small (approximately 40 guest) brunch reception at the Gettysburg Hotel in May 2019. The Hotel was able to accommodate our wedding on very short notice (about 3 months!) and bent over backwards to make our day as spectacular as it could be. From start to finish, every detail was attended to, from the napkin fold to the dismissal of guests to the brunch buffet. The Gettysburg Hotel is also extremely attentive to guests with food allergies or special diets, such as vegetarians. Megan, the Catering and Events Manager, was AMAZING! About a month before our wedding, they held a tasting for weddings and each bride-to-be went home with a door prize and had the ability to sample the different menu options. Megan handled everything for us and was so accommodating of all of our wishes. Since we had to leave immediately from the reception, the Hotel helped us to pack up our gifts and sent us away with some treats for the road. Overall, the Ballroom Venue was stunning, the Vault in the Ballroom was a hit, the food was AMAZING, and the staff were incredible. We could not have been happier with our day and our family members still keep raving to us that "That was the BEST wedding we have ever attended!"Sent on 06/27/2019

Wonderful and Helpful
My husband and I had a perfect wedding, stress free wedding day. I contribute this to Megan and her staff at The Gettysburg Hotel. When my husband and I started touring venues, we decided to visit the Gettysburg Hotel as a higher scale, upper end choice. Quickly my husband fell in love with the venue. The historical ballroom, the vault and location. I appreciated all the extras that the hotel offered with their package. I travel for my work and I knew that would cut into planning time. The hotel took care of a lot of the planning, the set-up, the tear down and clean up; for not just me and my husband but our wedding party and our families as well. We met with Megan about a month before the event to discuss our vision for the wedding, show her some of our decorations and talk about the timeline of the day. After we dropped off our décor to the venue prior to the event, I did not have to worry about a thing concerning the venue until the next day. Megan was so in tune with our vision that when we saw the decorations it was obvious she put as much thought and care into my wedding as we had. What really sold us on the Gettysburg Hotel was one of the tastings we went to. The food was amazing at the wedding. We had chef create a pesto potato that our guests were running around trying to see who had not eaten theirs yet! The Hotel works with two bakers and gives their wedding couples a cake stipend. We worked with Jennifer at Main Street Sweets. Her cupcakes were delightful! She allowed us 4 different cupcakes, a cake to cut, an anniversary cake, and a few gluten free cupcakes for my guests with that restriction. At the end of the night we had a bottle of champagne, two flutes and some fruit and our deserts waiting for us up in our room. This review cannot even begin to touch the gratitude I feel. My wedding was nothing short than wonderful. If you want the same, make an appointment and go talk to Megan.Sent on 06/26/2019

Couldn't have asked for a better venue!
I fell in love with the venue and knew it was where I wanted to get married, but working with Megan made everything better! Gettysburg Hotel helps you every step of the way while planning your wedding with multiple food tasting opportunities, showing what the table settings might look like, and walking through everything with you so there's no stress. My guests all loved the place and everything was perfect!Sent on 06/26/2019

Gettysburg Hotel - Worth every Penny
Compared to other venues pricing and their all inclusive packages, this was definitely the way to go. Also appreciated the acceptance of us being Bride and Bride. Every single time I emailed Megan, which was a lot, or had any questions or changes, she responded immediately and fully and was the epitome of professional and thorough. Every part of our contract was laid out in detail and everything was fully explained and reviewed and Megan also assisted with finer details we hadn't thought of and was a supportive and friendly presence who didn't miss anything. she also was very flexible with her schedule at all times. the hotel had some awesome wedding vendor events and a lot of helpful tools to help us find vendors they have used in the past. we also had a very lovely tasting and tour which sealed the deal for us. The wedding package price also included a cake from an option of two bakers. Megan also taught us how to cut the cake. We went with Karen Rodkey, which was also the best choice, our guests are still gushing about our cake. I am so excited to have the top tier for our anniversary. We received so many compliments on everything, megan is an expert designer (it was beautiful and turned out better than I had envisioned) and has a great team and are very efficient at multi tasking. The cocktail hour and food during the cocktail hour was delicious. We had plated meal options of the citrus and horseradish encrusted salmon (amazing!) and chicken with fontina cream and tomato relish (equally as amazing) and a napoleon polenta as the veggie option. Everyone raved about the food). on point for those with allergies. hotel was very helpful with coordinating our entrances and exits and assisted with set ups. The bridal suite was gorgeous and in close proximity to the ballroom and also complimentary, with a beautiful fire place and jacuzzi tub. The hotel staff brought all our gifts to the room for us without us having to ask as well as took care of decorations and clean up as well. They also had a lovely spread and treats for us in the room for after the wedding for a very personable experience and a keep sake we can't wait to use. Hotel staff were also very helpful with any assistance or request. We love that Gettysburg is now a part of our history and had a great time at the location in the square. Megan and the Gettysburg hotel is the way to go!Sent on 11/15/2018

My husband and I just got married on 9/8/18 at the Gettysburg Hotel. We had ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in thehotel. We do not have enough good things to say about this venue. When we booked our contract, we started working with April Rose who was extremely helpful and didn't miss a detail. About 8 months before our wedding, April informed us she was leaving and Megan Wherley was taking over for weddings. I was a little nervous, but the transition was seamless. Megan often took time out of her non working hours to talk to us and made sure we were on the same page for everything. As someone who worries, I definitely did not need to. We went with preferred vendors to make our lives easier, and we were extremely pleased with how easily the vendors worked with the hotel to bring life to our dreams. Our wedding day was amazing and guests commented on how well everything was put together and how beautiful the venue was. Although historic, the decoration options to give the space your own flare are endless. The central location of the venue gave our out of town guests an opportunity to explore the historic areas of the town. another advantage is the hotel room block, which makes it easy for guests to book a hotel and not have to worry about more traveling. I would not hesitate to suggest this to any couple who is looking for an all inclusive venue with endless options. Our day was more perfect than we could have imagined, thanks to the Gettysburg Hotel.Sent on 09/14/2018

Chuck and Megan were a joy to communicate and work with. The wedding of our daughter was going to be very interesting due to the fact she was away on tour for the three months leading up to the event. My wife acted as the liaison with Megan. I was sure due to these circumstances there would be many dropped details. I was pleasantly surprised how well the wedding and reception went. We have received so much positive feedback from all of the attendees about the location, the food and the overall atmosphere of the venue. Everyone involved was easy and comforting to communicate with, no details went unaddressed. The simplest of questions never went unanswered. Megan guided us through the process and had command of every situation.Sent on 09/19/2018

Such a beautiful and historic venue! I was so happy with my experience here. Megan was great, we had some issues throughout our planning process and she handled them with grace and precision. Whether you were on a phone or had the professional photos done, they all came out looking great. Adding the uplighting really brought out the features of the reception space.

Raining 2+ inches an hour, thier vows were being exchanged, and as mother of the bride, I wasn’t worried about it thing! Megan at the Gettysburg Hotel was in charge, and I was free to show up at the party of a lifetime, unphased by anything, not even torrential rain.Sent on 09/07/2018
My husban and I arrived at the Gettysburg hotel, and stepped into the cocktail hour. Drinks were being enjoyed by our closest and dearest family and friends, crisply uniformed servers passed delicious food, the bride and groom, smiling from ear to ear. Over a year of planning and now, this most important event, was running like a top.
As we passed a round table set like spokes in a wheel, warmly lit with candles, place cards and photos of family brides and grooms smiled at us from weddings long ago. And as we stepped into the ballroom, Megan at my side, I couldn’t have been more pleased. The tables were perfectly set, the cake and candy table, a work of art! Megan has skill and an eye for perfection. In my opinion, she has abilities that would be welcome in the finer hotels of NY or DC.
The night went off without a hitch, the ballroom was softly and romantically lit, the food was really good, the servers were on thier game and a young marriage was ushered off to a wonderful beginning.
Thank you to Megan Wherley, Catering and Events Manager at the Gettysburg Hotel, and to the wonderfully competent staff to whom I wish I could name individually.
