WOW!!!!! My wedding was truly an amazing event thanks to Chet Whisler at the Hyatt Regency Rochester!!! From our initial inquiry and throughout every single stage of planning; even date changes etc. We always felt our needs were Chets priority. The venue is absolutely beautiful to begin with but once Chet and his staff arranged and setup the ballroom they transformed into the most elegant, glamorous event beyond anything I could have ever dreamt of. Our entire evening was perfect from a fabulous meal to special attention throughout the evening. Chet went above and beyond he personally took care of our head table and made sure we were taken care of. I highly recommend the Hyatt Regency Rochester to anyone searching for professionals who truly care, deliver what they promise, and go above and beyond to make your event a dream come true. It is truly impossible to thank and to compliment Chet Whisler, enough!!! He and his staff surpassed my dreams of a glamorous wedding and perfect evening!!
The Hyatt made our dreams come true. The place looked like it was straight out of a movie! The food was delicious and staff was so helpful! Kyle, catering head, was great to work with and made any necessary calls/adjustments as he saw ft without needing to consult bride and groom on everything. Chet, however, MADE this experience for my husband and I. From the moment we met with Chet, to weeks after picking up items we left behind, Chet was personable, professional and thinking three steps ahead of us! We felt zero stress the entire time and much of this was due to Chet. Thank you, Hyatt!!! Wish we could do it again!
We hosted a wedding at the Hyatt. We chose the Hyatt based upon their promise of great service. Unfortunately the Hyatt did not deliver. The bar line was long, the food service was late, the wine service was non existent and the food was not as promised.
My wife and I did our wedding at the Hyatt on May 28, 2016. There are two event spaces; The Grand Ballroom and the Main St. level room. We used the Main St. room which holds up to 150. Our overall experience with the Hyatt was amazing. We canceled our wedding Max's because we were not comfortable with their staff (poor communication, unwilling to meet outside of 9-4:30, asked us to book a vendor for chairs rather than them). When I called the Hyatt to cancel my block of rooms in January (5 months before our scheduled event at Max's) I was transferred to Chet. Chet is their events manager and is amazing. He informed me that the Hyatt had the Main St. room available and the cost was reasonable. For $89 per person we were able to get all of the added bonuses that many places charge extra for (seat covers, cake cutting, champagne toast, 4 hours of open bar etc.). We added garbage plates for another $12 per person, but that was well worth it as the garbage place was awesome! Our reception lasted from 6:00 when cocktail hour started until 1:00am when the DJ had to get home. The food was amazing as was the hospitality. When we arrived back at our room all of our gifts had been brought upstairs and there were purple rose petals (the main color of the wedding) leading to the bed where 2 trays of chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne sat waiting. Finally, as we checkout the next day I went to the counter to pay for the suite for one night as the bridal party used it to get ready in the night before the wedding and found out the manager comped the room for us so we got the suite for two nights at no additional charge. I love the Hyatt and Chet. Do your wedding there!

WOW! I hosted my wedding reception at The Hyatt and was beyond pleased. Everyone raved about our food and the great service we had. Chet was our coordinator and he EXCEEDED our expectations. He and his staff did a phenomenal job setting up our ballroom and executing my dream wedding day. Chet was fantastic to work with and was beyond helpful. The staff was attentive and made our wedding day care free. It was great to have the hotel on-site so that guests simply had to walk upstairs to stay. I would recommend The Hyatt and Chet to any friend or family member looking for a venue.

Choosing a venue for our wedding day was a very important decision for us. We viewed many different ones before choosing the Hyatt and are very relieved to know that we made the right decision. We were absolutely blown away by the Hyatt's level of professionalism. They truly put their clients first. The tasting was out of this world and the service on the wedding day was outstanding. We felt special and definitely catered to. I did not have to worry about anything in terms of the reception on the wedding day. Julie and staff were a true blessing. I am so grateful they made our day smooth and impeccable. Everything was so beautiful. Our friends and family are still raving about how delicious the food was. I most certainly highly recommend them!

Reception 5; Hotel 2Reviewed on 11/29/2012 Jennifer M
The catering and reception were wonderful! Chet, our coordinator, was awesome! He made sure that every detail of the reception was perfect. I cannot say enough good things about Chet. He even made sure we had extra time to submit our final numbers because many of our guests were coming from Hurricane Sandy torn regions and several had to cancel at the last minute. Both my husband and I had a large number of out of town guests. We had issues with getting enough rooms for our guests due to a large convention that we were unaware of until after we had signed the contract. The rooms coordinator, Sharon, tried very hard to work within the restraints of the corporate policy. I think they were surprised by how many rooms we needed. It is my suggestion to discuss this before signing anything.
Great reception site!Reviewed on 9/04/2012 Jennifer R

Terrific Guest ServiceReviewed on 6/17/2011 Jillian Z
We had 80 out of town guests staying at the Hyatt and a Morning After Breakfast in the Main Street Ballroom which has been newly redecorated. The staff in guest services and catering were very professional and competent. The food was great and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The price for the service and quality was exceptional

Right from the start of our wedding planning to the very last second, The Hyatt was absolutely amazing. My husband and I worked with Chet and Heather throughout our planning and they were incredibly attentive. At any point of stress, they knew exactly what to do and say to make us feel better. Chet always had a dark chocolate bar for me at all of our meetings. I felt completely comfortable leaving everything in their hands. We were lucky and had the whole ballroom for our wedding on 10/9/10 which was wonderful considering that we had more guests than anticipated. The set up was perfect for us and there was enough space so that we didn't feel crowded at all. The food was awesome and the little food details like a special meal for my son, dark chocolate for me, my husband's food dislikes and my glass always being full with RB really stuck out to me. Details mean a lot and get noticed. I will definitely be recommending the Hyatt Regency Rochester to everyone that will listen. The service, quality and value were all top notch. Our wedding day was beautiful.
