Eric Waters, a gifted musician and a professor of music too! You added a classic touch and happy twist to the ceremony and cocktails. Thanks!
The venue does not have the oumph effect as you come into the entrance, and it's location along with the strip malls, does not add to its appeal. However, the layout inside has warmth, good ambiance, and the separations of different areas for holding, ceremony, cocktails, and dinner is great. I applaud the staff of their efficiency and customer skills.
The place is elegant, though it does not boast a view of the outside, the dinning room area is spacious. Love the elegant chandeliers, and the fact that you can adjust the lights. The staff were extremely efficient, event coordinator was on top of things, considering the weather and the power outage.
For a middle of the road hotel, the breakfast offerings were a surprise. Checking out was a mess, but staff handle themselves well.
As expected, bed covers were not fresh, hallways a bit dark, and carpet needs thorough shampooing.
The ceremony area is nice, though in the sweltering heat, could use more fans. The airiness, the parquet floor, the ready to use topiaries, these came very handy in creating a nice set up for the ceremony. The arch has had better days--it should be replaced with stronger one. One we use was wobbly :)
