My husband and I cannot say enough about the Holiday Inn Tewksbury/Andover. From the very beginning, everything about this location was perfect! Our wedding coordinator, David Mangiapane, was simply amazing. He was always available to talk, email, etc, and made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. Planning a wedding can be a bit stressful, but David and the rest of the employees working my wedding helped everything to move unbelievably smoothly. The ceremony was absolutely perfect, and the reception was so beautiful! Anything we wanted to add in, from our favors, to our unique guest book, to adding a short video, was included and looked perfect! I would highly recommend this venue to any future brides and grooms. Our only issue was that it had to end!! Thank you again so much David!!Sent on 01/28/2015

We have the best memories of our wedding, thanks to David and his wonderful staff. From the first time we went to visit the venue to the day of the wedding, it was clear that everyone was very professional and knew what they were doing. David is a very talented person to have on your side for your wedding. Any doubts we had, he would make sure he understood what we wanted and he make any doubts go away. We would strongly recommend this venue to any couple for their wedding. Every detail was met with the upmost attention and we certainly couldn't have asked for more. Considering we planned our wedding in one months time, our wedding turned out to be more than what we could have imagined.Sent on 05/24/2014

We had AMAZING Irish themed wedding reception at the Holiday Inn Tewksbury/Andover last weekend! Everything went 100% perfectly. David Mangiapane is an absolute professional and is one of the best in the business. Everyone at your hotel was amazing, from Cheryl with the bridal party all day, to Lee behind the scenes, to the servers, to Tim behind the bar. We never could have envisioned everything going as smoothly as it did on our big day, and I cannot thank David enough. He was there until after 3AM and even gave a bridesmaid a ride across the street at that hour! We had a wedding sales manager from another venue as a bridesmaid as well and she was blown away by how great everything looked and went. If you're looking for a reception venue north of Boston in the Merrimack Valley, do yourself a favor and call David Mangiapane at this hotel. Great value, great food, great people, great experience. We got a fantastic rate for our room block and a room for an after party as well. We could not be more pleased that we had our reception here.

Let me first say, that after having my wedding at the tewksbury holiday inn, I couldn't have dreamed about having it anywhere else. The wedding coordinator David was simply amazing. He was with me every step of the way before and during my wedding. He really is amazing. I didn't have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding. He took care of it all. The hall was gorgeous and I was absolutely blown away. My husband said the whole reason to have your wedding here is that David is part of the package. Beautiful venue, incredible food. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding.Sent on 10/15/2012

The Holiday Inn was fantastic! We worked with Dave M., the banquet manager there and he was amazing. All the other staff was also friendly and wonderful. It was one of the less expensive venues, but they didn't skimp on anything! The food and service was fantastic. Great value, great service! I had a wonderful wedding! Thanks guys at the Holiday Inn!Sent on 07/02/2012

When first thinking Holiday Inn I'm sure people wouldn't look twice. But this beautiful venue was the perfect size for my 150ish wedding. The food was amazing, they worked continually through email and in person meetings to make my wedding the perfect day. the event coordinator and catering manager was there throughout the night checking to make sure that everything was going according to plan, and was patient and understanding as wedding tension got high. I would recommend Dave, Teresa and the whole team to anyone, and if i plan to have another celebration it would be there.Sent on 12/28/2011
Holiday Inn Tewksbury-Andover's reply:Thank you for the great review. It is always a pleasure to be part of a Bride and Groom's Big Day! Our Executive Chef and friendly attentive staff were only happy to ensure a perfect day! Best wishes on a lifetime of happiness together!

From start to finish, David and his team were professional, making our wedding day one we will never forget. The packages offered were not only flexible but affordable. Having purchased a home and on a tight budget paying for the wedding ourselves, we found that the packages gave us all the little extras we wanted (champagne toast/cake cutting costs/multiple meal options) without the big price tag. We worked with David exclusively over the next 17 months to plan our reception. David was thorough covering every last detail and understanding exactly what I wanted. Each visit with David was memorable and the team at the front desk was always welcoming. By the time our big day rolled around, I felt like everyone at the hotel was family.Sent on 08/04/2014
The ballroom was just perfect for our wedding of 138 (15 tables). Cocktail hour was held outside of the ballroom with plenty of space for guests to mingle and places to sit. David set our cocktail hour up with 2 bars (absolutely recommended), photo booth, standing tables for the guests, an appetizer station and our seating card table. Everything was organized well and I heard only good things from my guests.
I was told that the day would fly by and to take in all the details as much as I could. I made sure to take the time to see the details I had planned and I was pleased to see that David took the time to listen and execute those details to the fullest. Also, David and staff were attentive throughout the reception. Following the reception, we chose to utilize the “photo” room to have pizza, leftover cake and beverages for those guests staying the night. David was helpful in locating a pizza delivery service w/late delivery. In the AM there was a reasonably priced breakfast buffet which was also a hit.
My husband and I are very appreciative of the time spent and the attention to detail. I would recommend the Holiday Inn to all brides with a big or small budget, as David and his team can accommodate so much.
Holiday Inn Tewksbury-Andover's reply:First I want to thank you for the great review. Corey and Andrew were wonderful to work with as Corey did an amazing job with centerpieces and the overall design of the Wedding! With Burlap Runners by Mom to the individual lanterns as centerpieces definitely made this a Wedding that I know I will remember. All my best for a lifetime of love and happiness together.

We chose the Holiday Inn Tewksbury/Andover because we really wanted to have our reception at a hotel and they were much more affordable than their competition. We also really liked the grand ballroom and our wedding was the perfect size for the room (120 people). The wedding coordinator there set up all of the different elements of our reception exactly as we wanted them. However, he was not good about responding to e-mails and phone calls. Our ceremony was meant to be held in a local park,however rain forced us to have it at the reception site. A few days ahead of the wedding we met with the coordinator and talked about our options for having the ceremony in one section of the ballroom and setting it up like a little chapel or just having it on the dance floor while our guests sat at their tables. We really hated the second option and he told us that he would have his people set it up as a chapel as long as we committed to actually having our ceremony there but Friday night (our wedding was Saturday at 4pm). Since I had my heart set on a wedding in the park and the weather was still questionable I asked him if he could be more flexible than that and allow us to make a decision the morning of the wedding. He said no despite the fact that there was an event in the ballroom the morning of the wedding and he wouldn't have been able to set up for the ceremony on Friday night anyways. We decided to just roll the dice. When it did rain (buckets!) I was heartbroken by the thought of getting married on the dance floor so I went to the front desk and talked to a wonderful lady there who assured me that they would set it up just as I wanted. They did set it up and it looked great, but if it weren't for her I do not think it would have happened. We were very pleased with the final cost of our venue, food, and non-alcoholic drinks which came to approx. $7,500 but would suggest being cautious in working with the coordinator. He was not helpful on the actual day.Sent on 08/27/2012
Holiday Inn Tewksbury-Andover's reply:The Bride and Groom did a remarkable job of thinking of all the little things to help make their wedding Special. All of us at the Holiday Inn loved their decor and were happy to work together as a team to make this a success. Necessary arrangements for the proper staffing to be able to not only set up but to also breakdown a beautiful ceremony and turn it for the Reception is the reason for the Friday request. None the less, I made all the necessary calls to ensure this happened without a hitch. Best wishes to the Bride and Groom for many years of Happiness together!
