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.
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.

Exceeded our expectations
Without hesitation, we offer our highest recommendation to the Row Hotel. With an ear-to-ear smile, here are a few words about our experience. Back in November 2018, we first sat down with Abigail, who is the Sales and Catering Manager. Over the year, she skillfully coordinated all of the details and provided a vision for how we could pull off the best party of the year. Time flew by; the next thing we know, it's the day of our wedding. The entire Row Hotel staff, from the bartenders to the valet, the managers to the cleaning crew, all accommodated our guests and us superbly. We appreciate all the small things and the big gestures. In all, we could not have imagined a better way to launch our new lives together than at the Row Hotel. See you next year on our anniversary!Sent on 11/07/2019

The best ever!
If you haven’t booked your wedding venue yet, BOOK THE ROW! I would give it 10 stars if I could, everything about this venue was incredible. My husband and I were looking for something in the Boston area that would be convenient for all our out-of-town guests. The Row was the perfect spot! First, the hotel itself is stunning (there is a reason they were just ranked as one of the best hotels in the world by Travel and Leisure). The lobby speaks for itself with the huge staircase (we took a lot of family photos there!) but the event space is equally as impressive. This really feels like a unique space vs. your standard corporate hotel function room. Their event spaces have floor to ceiling windows, large exquisite chandeliers, and one room even has gold vintage maps of Somerville decorating the walls. It was so convenient to have the ceremony, cocktail hour and the reception not only at one venue, but all on the same floor. We even used their outside terrace for cocktail hour! Second, the food was incredible. All of our guests couldn’t stop talking about the food (and still tell us to this day) how good everything was, from appetizers, to main course, to dessert. Last, but not least, Abby and her team absolutely make this the best wedding venue. Abby is the type of woman you want in your corner on your wedding day – incredibly organized, calm and so sweet. I got to relax and enjoy the day of my wedding because Abby and her team took care of coordinating all the vendors coming in, setting up the décor, and making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be. From check in, to the wedding day, to the breakfast on Sunday, every member of the hotel staff was so gracious and excited to be there. Our guests also commented about how helpful and accommodating everyone was. It doesn’t’ get any better than The Row!Sent on 10/11/2019

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!

Seriously, have your wedding here
I honestly can't say enough about how amazing our experience planning and celebrating our wedding at the Row Hotel was. From our first meeting with Abby we felt at ease and like we were well taken care of. Not only is Abby super organized, friendly, and professional, but she also is a very experienced event planner and thought of things that we hadn't even considered that ultimately improved the quality of our event. Apart from the great experience with the venue and staff, the hotel itself is simply a beautiful hotel and the perfect backdrop to photos that we are excited to look at for the many years to come.Sent on 08/03/2019

An Excellent Wedding Venue
We just got married at the Row and had an excellent experience. They were able to accommodate a few unusual requests and on the big day, the staff helped everything to go smoothly. We especially appreciated our event coordinator, Abigail, who was very friendly and helpful.Sent on 12/02/2019
