The Ethan Allen Hotel was a perfect place to have our wedding reception. From the day we met Eileen, we knew that we wanted to work with the EAH to plan our perfect wedding. She was so responsive, answered all of my questions months in advance of the wedding, and took care of... Read More EVERY detail on the day of the wedding including working with our other vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly. My husband is from Wisconsin and we were having a lot of guests travel from far away, but The Ethan Allen conveniently allowed us to block rooms far in advance so that our guests could plan stay. So many guests thanked us for having the reception at the hotel since no transportation logistics were necessary. The cocktail hour was beautiful and the hotel has a great outdoor patio that is perfect for nice weather. There is a lot of natural light and beautiful french doors as you walk out into the courtyard. The cocktail hour was also customized for us with food that wasn't even on the set menu (my husband had his heart set on cheese curds!) and Eileen worked with us to get Wisconsin beer, too. The food was incredible. Everyone loved all of our appetizers and cheese/dip displays during cocktail hour so much that our only complaint is that an hour was hardly enough time to try all of the amazing food! The dinner was similarly amazing with a salad, pesto tortellini appetizer, steak, and a custom cake. Eileen made our menu perfect for us. And the timing of dinner was perfect. Eileen worked with our DJ to make sure that people had time to eat, but were also up and dancing when we were ready for everyone to party. It was also such a weight off our shoulders to drop off all of our wedding decorations, champagne flutes, centerpieces, and wedding favors since we knew Eileen would take care of everything to execute our vision and showing up the day of our wedding to the reception, everything looked perfect and so romantic. Everything was even more beautiful than I imagined. The chandeliers in the reception room were also so regal and our table settings were perfect and exactly what we wanted. Eileen and her staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed all night, including taking all of our stuff up to our room so we didn't have to remember to clean up and grab everything from the reception that belonged to us. They even put some turkey sandwiches in our room so that we could eat before we went to bed (since we were indeed very busy dancing and visiting with guests so taking time to eat was not exactly a priority!). I HIGHLY recommend this venue for your event - you will not regret it! Our guests say it's one of the best weddings they have ever been to! Thanks again to Eileen and all the staff at the EAH for making our wedding so incredible and treating us like family! It was truly unforgettable!

Ethan Allen Hotel was the first venue we looked at to host the most important day of our lives and the last. When walking through the hotel (which is absolutely GORGEOUS) with Eileen we immediately knew this was the place for us. One of the first comments that Eileen made was... Read More that she treats every single wedding she does as if it was her own daughter's. I don't know of many other people in the wedding business who would not only say this, but PROVE it! She did just what she said. She went above and beyond, making sure my fiancé and I were happy and comfortable with every decision that was made. She promptly answered countless emails and questions ranging from where to put out the place cards, to organizing the order of events for the reception. Not only is she unbelievable at her job, but an even more amazing person. She truly cares about you as a couple and wants nothing more than to make your wedding day perfect. She was extremely accommodating to my father who has MS and is in a wheel chair. She made sure the aisle was wide enough for him and my mother to walk me down during the ceremony, and provided ample space for him at his reception table. No little detail was overlooked. It is two weeks later and we still have family members and friends telling us our wedding was the best they have ever attended. The food is outstanding and you can't beat the convenience of the venue. We had our ceremony and reception at the Ethan Allen Hotel which worked great since we had a lot of guests from out of state. We didn't have to worry about transferring guests from place to place and one part of the day flowed right into the next. We had 117 people stay at the hotel on the night of the wedding which made for a great after party in the hotel's bar that comes equipped with a DJ! You simply cannot get this anywhere else. There's not ONE thing I would've changed about our wedding day. It was the best day of our lives and we truly cannot thank Eileen, the staff, and chef at the Ethan Allen Hotel enough. BOOK IT!

We celebrated our wedding at the Ethan Allen Hotel in Spring 2017. After researching and seeing many venues local to Fairfield County/Northern Westchester, we loved the idea of having a venue that offered the ease of allowing guests to head straight up to their rooms at the end... Read More of the night - plus the property was beautifully renovated over the last two years! Taking everything into consideration (location, pricing, food, service, etc.) and having attended other receptions at the Ethan Allen Hotel, we knew it would be the right choice for us to celebrate our special day. What we didn't realize at first, however, was just how special the wedding coordinator, Eileen, was in helping us organize our reception. From our initial meeting, we knew we were in good hands. Many times in the "wedding process" making decisions, organizing vendors, and ensuring that all is in line can feel like a daunting process. Having Eileen on our team made everything that much easier. She was consistently prompt in her replies, fair in honoring pricing and packages, and always willing to meet in person to go over any questions that arose. Months prior to the event, Eileen allowed us to come in to the restaurant on property with our parents to sample some of the menu options in what was a small, private event. Here, we really got to know Eileen as a person, and she walked us through all the details and even introduced us to the chef. This personal touch truly makes the difference between other venues in the area. Needless to say, on the day of the event we thought the food was great and many of our guests said they truly enjoyed their meals. When it came to working with various vendors around the area, Eileen was often familiar with them and made our decision-making process that much easier. She never rushed us and was always on top of things. The night of the reception, the ballroom was tastefully decorated just how we wanted. We had a breakfast brunch the morning after in the conservatory and it was the icing on the cake - our guests LOVED it and the room is really beautiful and bright. In the end, Eileen and her team at the Ethan Allen gave us a wonderful wedding reception that we will never forget and I know our guests won't either! Eileen, thank you for all your help along the way - we will never forget it! Readers, don't hesitate in choosing Ethan Allen to celebrate your Special Day!

I had my wedding at the Ethan Allen in Sept. 2017 and it was the perfect spot for us. The Ethan Allen is classically sophisticated, while other venues were too "gaudy" or over the top for my groom and I. We had many people driving from out of town, so the hotel was a great bonus... Read More for us. Eileen is great to work with - she definitely knows the business, is extremely responsive (even on her days off), and put me at ease during the preparations. She also had several great recommendations for local vendors (DJ, limo, photog). My only downside during the evening was the banquet leader. He was barely around and couldn't be found when the DJ announced the cake cutting and there wasn't a knife or server for us to use. Also, the bottles of wine on the tables weren't replaced when they were empty. These were small points, however, and I wouldn't let them deter you from using the Ethan Allen. It's a great spot and Eileen is very accommodating. My in-laws wanted to do the rehearsal dinner at the Ethan Allen and Eileen made sure that the food and dinner spot were different than that at the wedding itself. We also did a morning-after breakfast and that went off without a hitch. Many of our guests stayed over and the hotel staffed made sure to handout our welcome bags.

Once settled, Eileen brought us into the reception hall (Regency) to see the setup before our guests. The second we walked in, we were stunned at how beautiful the room looked. The uplighting, centerpieces, glassware, and linens were perfectly placed. I could not have imagined it better. Ethan Allen took care of everything for us so that we did not have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants to trust that their event planner is going to get things done right the first time.

We originally had four venues we were going to see for a wedding reception. Upon meeting Eileen and seeing the ballroom at the Ethan Allen we cancelled our other appointments. My daughter, my husband, her fiance and I all agreed, "This is the place!" It was so easy to work with... Read More Eileen, she is very organized, has a great vision, and responds quickly to both email and phone. I could not have asked for a less stressful night. We are still receiving compliments on the food. Everything was done to perfection. You can easily tell that catering large events is an everyday occurrence for the staff and chef here. Everything was handled with ease. If there were any issues as guests we never knew. The cake that came with the package was one of the best I have ever eaten. It came from Home style Bakery in Poughkeepsie, NY . Working with Eileen was a true pleasure!!!!!

I just recently got married at the Ethan Allen Hotel and they by far exceeded our expectations! Everything was amazing. Eileen and her team made sure my husband and I had everything we needed. Our guests were raving about the service, food, decor, etc and how great everything... Read More was. It is a truly amazing venue, but what makes it even better is Eileen. She was excellent from the day we met her until our wedding day. She did not leave until she checked in with us to make sure we were happy. That's all she wanted was us to be happy and went above and beyond to make sure our special day was exactly what we wanted. She is timely with her emails and just overall so sweet that you cannot walk out of that venue with out saying "this is where I am getting married". We could not have asked for a better day and truly owe it to Eileen and her staff. Thank you so much!

If you are planning a wedding or any kind of celebration, you will be happy in choosing the Ethan Allen Hotel. From the beginning, everyone we dealt with was attentive and professional. They also took care of important details I didn't think to consider, since there was so... Read More much to do, which was a big help. Everything ran smoothly from the planning to the rehearsal to our wedding day. Beginning with our first meeting with Eileen, their amazing Catering Manager, to the front desk staff who made everyone feel welcome, to the chef who made sure that the food was delicious, to the catering staff, every part of the experience was positive. Everyone had a great time, including the bride (me) and groom, which I've heard doesn't always happen. Many thanks to everyone who helped make our special day the best it could be!
