We held our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception at the I Hotel on June 3rd. Our experience began with booking and we worked with Megan. She offered great advice and insight on what type of rooms we would need and what the I Hotel could ...
do with the space. My husband and I wanted the entire event to take place in one place as we had many out-of-town guests, and we wanted the weekend to be easy for all of them.
Next we worked with Courtney to establish the details of the day. She again made excellent recommendations and worked to make sure all of my desires were met. She worked to coordinate the day, along with my wedding planner and all of the vendors, to make sure that everything happened smoothly and effortlessly.
Finally we worked with Jose in catering to establish the food and drink contracts for the weekend. Jose was incredibly accommodating, even accepting my request at the last minute for a tasting and another last-minute request to add food at our rehearsal. He even helped me pick a vegan meal when I found out some of my guests were vegan. His recommendation was spot-on as the dinner was both delicious and filling (something that is very hard to do with vegan meals). Jose and his team stole the show with their excellent food and impeccable service. I received many compliments about their work.
The rooms were all beautifully arranged according to our specifications, the food was wonderful (we were told by many guests as well as our own observations), and the entire staff on the conference side was courteous and attentive. We would recommend the conference center to any and everyone.
We hit a bump on the hotel side, however. The hotel booked without informing me that they were almost full and I had many guests scrambling to find nearby accommodations at the last minute. We also booked the bridal suite for two nights but were told that we could only have it for one night. The hotel righted all these situations promptly and courteously, but we wished that communication had been better throughout the process.
All in all, I would recommend the I Hotel for events because the staff was incredibly kind and courteous, the food was fantastic, the rooms were and are beautiful, and the venue is perfect for a one-stop-shop.
