We celebrated our wedding here on 2/3/18 and we can't say enough good things about our experience. Tasha Irving-Davis was awesome to work with and made the whole process so enjoyable.

And the room was absolutely beautiful, Tasha's attention to detail was beyond expectations. We would highly recommend The Coronado for your wedding, they helped make ours a night to remember!!

I cannot say enough good things about the Coronado Ballroom. Not only is it a beautiful venue that gave me amazing pictures and video footage, but the staff and set up were incredible. I was surprised at how easy the Coronado made the "Wedding Planning" process because of how... Read More chaotic people make it out to be. It really was quite easy and they made sure to accommodate my busy schedule and were very open and understanding of my 'wants' as a Bride. I got SO MANY COMPLIMENTS on the food and how beautiful everything was. Courtney K. was the coordinator for my event and she went above and beyond to make sure that my day was everything I wanted it to be. She always answered emails promptly, detailed my contract and made changes when I asked her to. She made me feel so comfortable with her organization of the rehearsal and she orchestrated the wedding day perfectly. I appreciate how present Courtney was the entire day and that she did all the little things that really make a difference in how the day played out. Without a doubt, I made the BEST decision having my wedding here and would be willing to answer any questions anyone might have ([email protected]). Schedule a time to check them out, you wont be disappointed!

Absolutely amazing! From the moment we walked into the ballroom while still considering several other vendors, I knew that we had found the perfect place for our Wedding Reception. The Ballroom is stunning and took our breath away the night of our reception (we might have even... Read More shed a tear or two!). The service is impeccable and we cannot say enough kind words about our experience. Rob Schaefer made our whole experience and planning process simple and relaxing. My mother and I like to worry about all details and Rob made it so there was nothing to worry about. The evening was executed perfectly and our friends & family have all told us what an amazing time they had. The food from Butler's Pantry was THE best wedding meal I have ever had. If you are interested in a late night meal/snack, I would recommend the chocolate chip cookies. I still have friends that talk about how delicious the cookies were - so they are a must have! The bartenders were amazing and friends commented that there was never a line or wait - a detail that was very important to my husband and me. Thank you to Rob (and Butler's Pantry) for helping us plan the best wedding reception that we could have ever imagined! We hope to see you soon!

Less than 48 hours ago we were at the Hotel Coronado for our youngest daughter’s wedding reception. The purpose of this short note is to extend our heartfelt appreciation to you, and all the other people involved, that made the reception what it was. Throughout the evening,... Read More and since on social media and by other contacts, we’ve heard from people there that it was beautiful, amazing, wonderful, and like a fairytale. Their opinions mirror our own. We could not be more pleased! It was everything our daughter dreamed of growing up and more. The Coronado is a terrific venue and the lighting, set-up, linens, chairs, and other touches only enhanced it. We looked at several “name” Country Clubs, hotels and other venues before deciding on The Coronado and are glad we made the choice we did. We can’t imagine any other venue being better. Special thanks to you Liz and all the other leadership and staff there. Everything was done well. The complimentary valet parking, the bar service, food service, etc. were all provided efficiently and with a smile. You were always responsive and helpful, offering ideas and being incredibly flexible. Thank you! As you know, Allison is our youngest of four daughters and the last to get married. All of our daughters are beautiful and all of them had wonderful wedding receptions, but Alli’s was clearly the best. We’re hopeful that other friends will use the venue in the future so we can relive last Saturday night, although we will never forget it even if we don’t. Please extend our thanks to others involved that made the evening so special, and all the best in the future. Sincerely, Don and Trish Imholz

There is no amount of words to describe exactly how perfect the Coronado Ballroom was for our wedding reception. For starters, it has been recently renovated to enhance the already gorgeous space. The new aesthetic is so elegant, yet eclectic – keeping the gorgeous original... Read More ceilings and floors and mixing it with a modern (gigantic!) bar and furniture. It provided the perfect back drop for drinking, dinner, and dancing. We didn’t want the night to end. The Coronado was the first (and only) venue that we looked at. It was so stunning, that we booked it the next day. Not to mention, we fell in love with Rob Schaefer, the wedding director there, and knew that he was the one person that we trusted to make our vision come to life. Right from the start, he was just a blast to work with – smart, funny, and oh-so-sassy. He knows what he’s talking about (so listen) and made our wedding night absolutely flawless. He listened to what we wanted and then offered up some wonderful suggestions (like the late night snacks and dusty rose tablecloths) to make the evening even better than we could have expected – everything was just perfect. And to make things even better, the food was unbelievable, and the flourless chocolate cake was to. die. for. We thought about possibly doing a wedding cake, but after trying the chocolate cake at the tasting, we knew we wanted to go with that option instead. Everyone raved about how delicious it was – many admitting they wanted another serving :) I could go on for days about how wonderful this wedding venue is, but I will spare you. ;) If you’re planning a wedding, I highly recommend visiting this space to see for yourself. It’s the best St. Louis has to offer. Thank you for everything, Rob! We love you!

My husband and I had the most beautiful reception at the Coronado on 3/12/16. The space is obviously breathtaking but an additional perk was that we did not have to do much decorating--only centerpieces and table flowers. The food was absolutely amazing and there are a lot of... Read More options to pick from. Above everything, working with Rob and Liz, the event coordinators, was by far the best part about booking this venue. I live in Oklahoma, and they were so amazingly helpful and supportive. They were always friendly and answered any and every question I had. They are extremely professional and are very good at what they do. If you book the Coronado, you can be 100% sure that you will have a classy, elegant wedding with wonderful food and amazing staff at your side. Our guests raved about the space--in fact, they clapped when they saw the ballroom for the first time, and they still have not stopped talking about what a great time they had. My wedding was a dream come true. It really was. Thank you so much Rob and Liz!

A Magical Venue for a Magical Day! Where do I even begin with writing a review for a venue and staff that far exceeded our expectations for our wedding day? My husband and I, along with my parents, had an incredible experience working with Rob. His attention to detail made... Read More every single part of our big day on New Year's Eve magical, to say the least. We had both our ceremony and reception at The Coronado. We had a musician for the ceremony who played a non-traditional wedding song for the processional and Rob helped make the timing impeccable. It was our favorite part of the entire day. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. Once the reception started and my husband and I made it to our sweetheart table, we found that the remaining wine (my husband's favorite) used for communion was already at our table. When we were walking around mingling while guests were beginning to be served dinner, the staff made sure to leave our plates covered so our food would remain hot until we returned back to our seats. While these details seem small in the grand scheme of things, it only helped add the perfect touch and make our day even more memorable. Rob and the staff literally thought of everything to help our day go smoothly. Our guests were extremely impressed with the beauty of the venue and professionalism of the staff. They are still talking about our big day! Thank you Rob and The Coronado for an unbelievable day that we will never forget!

When looking for a wedding venue my husband and I struggled finding the best location for our vision and guest list size. A friend recommend we check out the Coronado. There is no denying its beauty and elegance from the moment you walk in the door. After saying yes to the... Read More location we hit some bumps along the way. A few months in there was a transition period resulting in a communication break down. Once back on track, things went well until the rehearsal. I was less than impressed with the professionalism of the Executive Sales Director through out the wedding weekend. His attitude reflected that we were imposing on him and his time instead of him being there for us. His curt attitude towards not only the bridal party but our guests was a great disappointment. During the ceremony there was laughter and talking coming from the waitstaff in the ballroom, guests have commented on this. Prior to the start of the reception, the lights were flickered to the point guests made comments on this also. Our guests were told they didn't need their escort cards, they just needed to sit down (these were part of their favors). Our guest book was disassembled to the point it didn't serve the purpose we designed it to. Additionally guests were reprimanded for using the restroom at certain times or attempting to talk to me when the Executive Sales Director was trying to get my attention. I wish the professionalism of the Executive Sales Director reflected the same as the beauty of the venue.
