I love this venue!
Andrea was our coordinator and she was so great to work with. I love the clean lines and look of this venue, and they were so easy to work with on the day of as well. And the food is AMAZING! I was worried when they told me we had to use their catering, but once we tried it, I was amazed. Their chef is so nice and willing to adjust to your tastes, and their menu is delicious! We even had our planner send some extra mac and cheese to our hotel room at the end of the night!Sent on 04/04/2019

My husband and I got married in October at Clayton On the Park. we looked at many potential venues prior, and Clayton stood out the most. All the natural lighting and greenery made you feel like you weren’t even in Arizona! The venue is absolutely breathtaking which you can get obviously see.. What really sold us was the venue coordinator, Sara Laskin. Starting from day one she was an absolute joy working with. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and so very patient with both my husband and I. I was sending her emails about every month up until the wedding and she always responded so quickly and with so much detail. She truly is passionate about her job and you can clearly tell from a clients perspective.Sent on 10/30/2018
We had some hiccups with our DJ during the wedding and Sara wasn’t technically supposed to stay the whole wedding because I had a day of coordinator for that - she stayed and made sure the dj was on top of it and made it so none of my guests realized what was even happening. Just the fact she decided to take the bull by the horns because my dj couldn’t shows a lot, and means so much to dan and I. It’s clear that you genuinely want your clients to be happy and it’s not just about the $. Otherwise, you probably would have just left.
Sara, dan and I appreciate you so much and the Clayton is extremely lucky to have apart of their team! You are a true gem!

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue than Clayton on the Park for our dream wedding! We picked the venue because of it's modern, crisp atmosphere but had no idea what an an amazing experience we were in for. Sara and Andrea were so wonderful and responsive throughout the process, making sure all the details were were looking for were handled. The staff was phenomenal on our wedding day and the food...I cannot even begin to count the number of people that said it was the best wedding food ever! Everything was flawless from start to finish and couldn't have been any more perfect!Sent on 06/06/2018

Clayton on the Park was the PERFECT venue for our dream wedding! We were looking for a completely indoors venue for 150 guests since our wedding was in June. Sara and Jane were amazing in helping us put our vision together by fully utilizing the space for both our ceremony and reception. They were so accommodating to all of our needs and were very responsive. We had our ceremony upstairs, which was beautiful with all of the natural light the windows let in. After the ceremony, the Clayton staff very quickly flipped the same room for our guests to enjoy cocktail hour. The dinner was beautifully prepared downstairs, and we went back upstairs for the reception and desserts. The evening flowed seamlessly! We also loved that there were so many beautiful spots for photography right outside of the venue. Our guests raved about the modern and clean space, the very friendly staff, and mostly the delicious food! We couldn't have asked for more for our special day!Sent on 07/03/2017

The Clayton on the Park exceeding our expectations at our wedding. The space was totally different than typical wedding venues and it was beautiful! We had the ceremony upstairs, cocktail hour outside, dinner downstairs and then they transformed the upstairs from a ceremony space to a party with our live band, desserts and cake, and dance floor. We received so many comments from our guests about how they were in love with the space. And the FOOD!!! The Food was the by far the best wedding food we've ever had!!! Claire was wonderful to work with and we felt at ease as everything went smoothly. We loved the Clayton on the Park and have wonderful memories that will last forever!Sent on 10/23/2017

Clayton on the Park was unbelievably amazing! My daughter's wedding was storybook perfect at this venue. Claire Loeb and her incredible staff went above and beyond to make everything magical. The food was the best I've ever had at a wedding as Susan the chef really outdid herself. They did everything for us so we were free to really enjoy ourselves. Claire also connected us to the perfect wedding coordinator Andrea which was icing on the cake.Sent on 09/20/2017

This place is a dream! My husband and I got married here earlier this month and it was gorgeous! The staff is incredible. Jane was our venue coordinator and she was on top of everything from beginning to end. The Clayton is so clean and modern and was the perfect backdrop to our wedding. Our friends and family had an amazing experience. We continue to receive compliments by our friends and family about the venue, the food, the bar and how much fun they had celebrating there. I highly recommend The Clayton for ANY event!Sent on 01/25/2017

CLASSY, ELEGANT AND PERFECT!Sent on 06/08/2016
My daughter, Sara and her new husband, just had their wedding at The Clayton on the Park a couple of weeks ago and we are still in awe over how amazing everything turned out. We came all the way from San Diego to this gorgeous venue in Scottdale and our guests enjoyed a "Wedding Weekend" lounging at The Saguaro Hotel next door. The 5:30 pm ceremony upstairs with the beautiful soft grey floor and huge window overlooking the park made for stunning photographs with its perfect natural lighting and soft white tones. Katherine, the wedding coordinator was so sweet and helpful, there was no need to feel nervous at all. She told everyone where to stand, when to walk and everything went smoothly. The big staircase allowed for a spectacular grand entrance with a fantastic view for every guest. The cocktail hour on the patio was a guest favorite with the signature cocktails, beautiful white sofas and market lights overhead (came with the venue at no extra charge.) As other reviewers pointed out, the food is of fine restaurant quality. From the appetizers to the food stations, everyone raved over the taste. We comfortably fit approximately 100 guests with 10 each to a table, a sweetheart table and a dance floor. The bartenders and the food hosts were professional and courteous. I can honestly say, the night felt perfect! With all this being said, If I had to pick the main reason to choose The Clayton, I would have to say It's the "TEAM." Jane and her girls were so caring and helpful throughout the entire process. They made us feel like our event was the only event on their minds.. It's so obvious they absolutely LOVE what they do. On that final day, when everything had been planned and played out and it was time to say goodbye, we felt like we just planned a wedding with family. If you are looking for a modern, classy, unique venue, with great food, a beautiful layout and a team that treats you like they genuinely care, this is the place!

We hosted our reception at the Clayton this May and it was simply amazing! Claire and the whole team were wonderful, responsive, and so warm. The setup was flawless and they even allowed us to try a couple of the decor components such as the large ribbon curtains prior to the date to ensure they worked. For the reception, the service was gracious and prompt, the food was fabulous, and there was not a single issue in the whole evening. Our guests have been telling us that it was by far the best food they have ever had at an event, they loved the diverse selections, and everything felt like it had been made with great love and care. As a party space, the Clayton was fantastic - We decided to host the cocktail hour on the first floor, serve dinner upstairs, and return back to the first floor for the reception/dancing/karaoke portion of the evening. Since the venue is so modern and simple, you can really make it work for whatever you want (as we did a gold dinosaur/fiesta colored wedding, we can attest to the flexibility of the space!) Overall, we could not have asked for a better venue, better service, responsiveness, and fun location. Thanks again to Claire and the whole staff!Sent on 06/01/2016

Finding the perfect venue was the most difficult and tedious task, but once we found the Clayton, we knew it was the perfect venue for us. We found them online even though we had stumbled upon the venue while dining in old town a few years prior. We were surprised to find how affordable the venue was for the quality and beauty of the space compared to many other venues. We worked with Claire, who was personable, professional, patient, and highly responsive. Her attention to detail was impeccable and she always responded to our questions in a prompt manner. We utilized all 3 spaces at the Clayton: cocktail hour outside on the patio, dinner inside downstairs for 140 people and dancing/ dessert upstairs. The day was as close to perfect as you can get. Claire coordinated with all the vendors seamlessly. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious. We decided to go with the dinner stations (Roma and Cali fresh) and added the Mediterranean appetizer to cocktail hour. Our guests were stuffed and they are still raving about the food and the venue! The presentation of the drinks and food was absolutely lovely. The space itself is so sleek, modern and clean looking that it required minimal decor - just some simple centerpieces, candles and up-lighting and it looked beautiful. The staircase makes for a great bridal party entrance, and having the dancing upstairs made it feel like a club (though we still had cocktail rounds and some tables up there for drinks and dessert). Our DJ projected music videos on the walls - the space didn't need it, but it certainly added to the "cool" vibe. We were so pleased that we chose the Clayton and that we had the opportunity to work with Claire. Added words of advice from our experience: book early during wedding season and plan to have helpers at the end of the evening for cleanup of your decor/belongings. Oh, and of course choose the Clayton!Sent on 10/18/2016

The Clayton on the Park was an amazing venue! Choosing a venue was one of the most difficult tasks in planning our wedding. When I booked with the Clayton, I had a full sense of relief, thanks to Claire Loeb, our contact there who helped us plan and organize everything. The food, service, and cocktails were top notch! I had such good feedback from my wedding guests about the venue and all it had to offer. The venue was also perfect for me since I had family in town and the amenities nearby were outstanding, being located right in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. I would recommend The Clayton on the Park to any couple planning their wedding in the valley. Thank you to everyone at The Clayton for helping to make our wedding such a success!Sent on 06/02/2016

If your looking for a venue that is elegant and accommodating with an outstanding chef, this is the place for you.

I love the Clayton! After touring countless of resorts in Scottsdale, we found this place- and fell in love!! Super Modern, awesome white versatile space! They include really nice chairs, for the reception so you don't have to worry about that, over 30 colors of linens are included you just pick! OMG and the food is made in house! They make it that day so it was super fresh and amazing!Sent on 04/18/2016
Everyone was raving about how amazing the food was, we had passed hor d'oerves that were unboring and delicious. Claire was who our event specialist, and she went ABOVE and BEYOND all my expectations. I mean seriously, my signature cocktail was a Greyhound, we arrived at the Clayton for pictures early and she shows me this bag full of fresh picked grapefruits she picked herself from her backyard for my signature cocktail!
I about flipped out, she was unbelievably helpful, and during the dinner she checked up on us to make sure everything was perfect- it was. I mean my whole day was a dream, but this place had a lot to do with it!
I recommend it to everyone! location is phenomenal and we had our ceremony in the park so lush and green I wish I could upload photos! I wish I could have another wedding so we could do it here again seriously!
Thank you so much to Claire, and the Clayton team, made everything seamless and amazing. Everyone said it was the best wedding so fun and venue so cool!
The Clayton on the Park's reply:Thank you for your sweet note! - just LOVED working with you and John! All the best to you two and I'll see you at yoga :)

Claire and the staff at Clayton made planning our wedding a breeze! Claire was very organized and detailed and helped keep everything on track. I am so glad we booked with Clayton as the service, food, and venue are unbeatable! We looked at many different venues but when we walked into Clayton and met Claire, we knew this was the perfect place for us. Our wedding day was perfect and everyone commented on the uniqueness of the venue and the high quality of the food and service. Thank you Clayton and especially Claire!Sent on 02/26/2016

Sara with Clayton on the Park did a fantastic job the entire time, from the initial booking, to the food tasting, to the day of the event. She was there every step of the way, and it's simply amazing how things came together at the end.
The ceremony spot was wonderful, and very conducive to our guests for them to then go through our receiving line down to cocktail hour. The patio area was a hit. We had 90 guests, our reception was on the lower level, and there was still plenty of room for dancing. All of the Clayton's staff were professional and kind, and our guests (most of whom came from out of town) had a short walk to the Saguaro hotel afterwards. Its proximity to Scottsdale old town attractions gave everyone a nice little weekend getaway. Days later we are still hearing from our guests about the fantastic time they had. Many have even said it's the best wedding they have ever been to!
Thank you, Sara, and Clayton, for giving us a day we will never forget. It was the greatest day of our lives.

We had our wedding at the Clayton. The venue was affordable, clean, stunning, modern, and simply amazing! Their food is cooked in house, so the guests get fresh, non-catered meals from a fantastic chef. The bar was amazing, with a great beer selection. The team was very responsive, timely, and helpful.

Ciara · Married on 07/18/2015
Clayton on the Park was everything we could ask for! We actually booked this venue sight unseen since we were traveling in town from Iowa and we couldn't have been happier with the result! For one Claire, the coordinator, is amazing to work with! So professional and thorough and there for whatever questions and needs we had. We opted for a cocktail style reception with heavy appetizers and drinks flowing and lounge style seating, this venue was absolutely perfect for our vision! Our pictures we took here are so beautiful, the amount of natural light in the space makes for magazine like photos! Thank you Clayton for contributing to a perfect wedding day!Sent on 08/14/2015
The Clayton on the Park's reply:Thank you Ciara for the great review. We just loved working with you and are head over heels for your wedding photos. We can't wait to see them published! Thank you again for choosing The Clayton on the Park for your wedding. It was such an honor to host your big day here.
Xanadu · Married on 05/30/2015
My husband and I knew this was the venue for us after the first showing. We were looking for something modern and fresh. The Clayton on the Park was just that, it has all white furniture and gray floors. The venue matches you... you don't have to match the venue. The wall on the back can have any color lighting on it, we had purple. We were only planning on having 100 people for our wedding which was a perfect size for the venue. I believe their max is 120 people, we only ended up having around 80 people. Claire Loeb was the one that helped us the whole time. She was amazing and we loved working with her. The wedding was absolutely perfect and I couldn't have asked for anything more! I would definitely recommend the Clayton on the Park to anyone! The food was amazing as well! Thanks Claire and the Clayton staff!Sent on 06/02/2015
The Clayton on the Park's reply:Thank you so much Xanadu for your lovely review. We enjoyed working with you to create the wedding ceremony and reception of your dreams.

We had our wedding on May 23, 2015 at the Clayton on the Park and we couldn't have been happier! Sara and the whole staff were wonderful to work with and our wedding day was perfect...from the ceremony upstairs to the cocktail party on the terrace to the reception in the main room! We were so pleased with the atmosphere and food. We selected the dinner stations, and many people raved about the food! We got so many compliments about the location in Old Town and ease it provided to our local guests and out of town guests. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for an affordable Old Town wedding in Scottsdale!Sent on 06/20/2015
