We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception at Magnolia. We got married in August 2020 during COVID so our plans were up in the air in the months leading up to the event due to the ever-changing rules. Magnolia worked everything through w...
ith us to accommodate the changes necessary to have the wedding reception we always envisioned. Originally, our rehearsal dinner was supposed to be at a different location and the reception was supposed to be in the 17th by Magnolia ballroom, but we ended up having to move the reception to the lower level of the hotel which was initially disappointing because we loved the ballroom. However, the lower level was the perfect place for a reception! And we were able to move our rehearsal dinner to the ballroom so it was still included in our weekend. We got ready for the wedding in a few of the suites which was really nice. We also loved having Harry's right there to hang out in the evenings. All of the staff and employees we worked with were amazing from the event coordinators (Kathryn and Sam) to the chef to the front desk staff. I have nothing but good things to say about our entire experience. We wouldn't have had the perfect wedding celebration without Magnolia!

My husband and I just got married at the Magnolia Hotel. The day of the wedding was beautiful and flawless, in major part, because of the outside wedding planner we hired (Ali Wilhelm with AWEvents).
While the wedding day itself was wonderful,...
leading up to the wedding was stressful. The hotel changed wedding coordinators on us a month or two after we booked. There were some communication issues in terms of responsiveness via email, but after a conversation, this was fixed. The hotel was under construction.
Overall, I do recommend this venue as it is beautiful but my advice to you is to hire an outside wedding planner.

The downtown location is the perfect setting to allow guests to enjoy all Denver has to offer with 16th street mall so close and Denver Union Station just a few blocks down 17th street. We loved shooting our wedding pictures in/around the historic buildings located just next door to the Magnolia. The colors are vibrant and the city's energy is irresistible. We worked with their Venue Coordinator, Danielle. She is attentive, understanding, helpful, flexible and so many more adjectives I would list if I had more time. She worked with us regarding our schedule, room block, budget and decor offering valuable feedback, helpful tips and recommendations. She and the entire Magnolia staff seem to have a genuine understanding how important each couple's wedding day is and they all go out of their way to provide the best service. My family and friends continue to tell us how much fun the wedding was and how beautifully decorated the venue was (thanks to Danielle and team). The chef created three outstanding dishes and personally thanked my husband and I for having our wedding at their venue. It was amazing he went out of his way to thank us. The bartenders were friendly, complimentary and accommodating throughout the entire night. Needless to say, our wedding day was magical, easy, stress-free and most importantly... FUN! I can't thank the Magnolia team enough for all they did to make both my husband and I feel so special and proud of our wedding. I give Magnolia Hotel Denver my HIGHEST recommendation.

Danielle is extremely knowledgeable and knows the answers to almost any question you have. It was Nikki's first wedding she did by herself but she did a fabulous job.

s perfect. There is a nice water feature that adds additional ambiance to an already very nice space (we did very little decoration other than centerpieces!). The food was really good and the planning staff easy to work with and responsive. There were a few small things that didn't go exactly as planned which is why this is a 4 and not a 5. They said they saved some of the passed hor d'orves for us, but we never got them (I know they ran out too, so if we weren't going to get them I would rather my guests got them). I requested a special gluten-free vegan meal for one of my guests and she was served one of the regular entrees (to their credit, it was a last RSVP and I made the request a week before the wedding, and they did eventually bring out the specific meal when I asked about it). We requested a table for the photo booth so the props could be set up and there wasn't one, but we made do. Our gifts were supposed to be brought up to our room at the end of the reception and no one did that, though when we asked, they did have someone collect everything and bring it up, plus a complimentary bottle of champagne. It was really hot and humid in the space (probably because of the water feature - and all the dancing). I really liked having my reception here and would definitely recommend The Magnolia Hotel. Good value for what you good and great customer service and food!

We booked the Magnolia for our ceremony and reception, and held both in the lounge because of the small size of our event (around 50 guests total). Initially, I had some sticker shock, but for everything we got it was an amazing value!
ounge is what won me over, I fell in love with the idea of getting married in front of the gorgeous water feature. We were operating on a budget, so the beautiful space was a blessing because I did not have to come up with a lot of extra decor or additional lighting. At no point did we feel pressured to add on or upgrade any services we didn't want. Everything we needed was included in the package price (linens, place settings, etc.), which meant I didn't have to keep track of a million different vendors.
For the reception, we opted for one of the plated dinner options. The food was delicious, and our servers were exceptional. The tasting was a treat, it seems like such a minor detail but it felt very special! That's when I really got that the Magnolia wanted us to feel welcome and respected, and we weren't just Wedding #842.
The best part was our event coordinator, Jessica - I could not have done it without her! She helped me stay organized and on schedule for the entire planning period, and the day of she worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure everything went smoothly. I always felt like I had her full attention, and every one of my requests was honored (or, I was given a reasonable explanation as to why something was not possible.) I was really able to let go of the details and focus on myself the day of the wedding, because I felt confident everything was under control.
Additionally, every member of the staff made us feel like royalty the entire time, from our first meeting with Jessica all the way up until we checked out the morning after the wedding. Our guests are still telling us what a great time they had!

The room was nice, but nothing special and definitely not worth the money we paid.
The worst part was, we were woken up at 8 am by maid service wanting to service our room. It was our wedding night!! We were appalled.

the salad, but had dinner buffet style because I did not want to keep track of food orders, hotel was very flexible.

In summary the great things include: location, food, Sidney (wedding planner), flexibility on food options and to stay within the budget, great room pricing. Negatives include: valet was only so-so and were a bit aggravating on wedding day missing bags in the car that needed to come up, missing them a second time when sent back to look. Also the flower vases went missing from our honeymoon suite and were never found, so I was out the replacement costs for 5 vases, which in the end was only $18. If I had it to do all over again, I would most definitely have my wedding reception here. Check them out, you will not be disappointed.

wn to the second floor for the reception. I loved and I'm sure all the guests appreciated that there was an actual bar and not a bar setup there. I don't think anyone had to wait for drinks. We had a 10 person band and the dance floor they provided, plus 210 guests all fit on the 2nd floor. We got reduced rates for our guests and they gave us a free night's stay at the hotel. Food was great (one of the things we really looked for in a venue) and reasonably priced for wedding food.
As for the service, I'd give 3 stars because of the catering manager. Not sure who the catering manager is now, but at the time we were planning our wedding, her name was Claudia and she made things more difficult than they had to be---sooo glad we had a wedding coordinator to deal with that. She was really unorganized and would say one thing, but it would be written differently in our contract. We had to revise SEVERAL times to finally get in writing what she agreed to. They were very accommodating though so I'll give them that! Above all, I'm very happy we went with the Magnolia Hotel for our wedding reception.

We are usually not ones to post bad reviews because we understand that things can go wrong. However, we had soooooo many things go wrong with the planning of our reception and the reception itself that we feel the need to warn others (when you ...
consider how meaningful and expensive a wedding is). Here’s a summary of the problems: We had a gift stolen during the reception (they checked the security tapes and found this out). They did give us a credit for the cost of the gift but our catering person never called us to apologize. They charged us for $495 worth of dessert that was never served (they will be paying us back). Our catering manager made numerous mistakes while planning the wedding and we kept having to double check and correct her work--she sent us an estimate with the wrong food choices, her final count for meals was wrong, and she was going to charge the wrong credit card. Even when we would correct her work, she sometimes failed to make the proper changes. We ended up purposefully not giving her our slideshow DVD that we wanted played during dinner because she kept saying (verbally and on the Event Planning Form) that it was to played during the cocktail reception. The room was not set-up as we had discussed and requested—they left fluorescent tube lights on when they said they would not be on, they did not have tablecloths on tables in the reception room, they did not set up seating in the reception room as requested, and they ACTUALLY CHANGED THE CONFIGURATION OF THE HEAD TABLE WITHOUT ASKING US (and it made it so we had to sit across from each other instead of next to each other—it’s hard to explain because it was the weirdest setup I’ve ever seen.). We were willing to excuse some of these things but the “straw that broke the camel’s back” was when we found out a gift was stolen and they didn’t serve the dessert we paid for. We sent a letter to the Director of Catering to complain and he was very responsive and apologetic. He offered to put us up in the hotel for a special event if we wanted. Still, if we had to do it over again, we would have chosen a different venue. There are plenty of other venues in Denver.
