Highly RecommendedReviewed on 11/29/2013 Melva V
I got married on 11/10/2013. I choose this venue for my reception and I love it. The staff in there went over my expectation and Hillary who is the sales coordinator is a sweetheart. She makes sure to give you what are you looking for and if you have any doubt on how you want something, she wont hesitate in giving you any ideas or help you go thru what exactly you want. The food is great and the people that serve the food are always checking on what you need. Thank you so much Imperial Room to make my special day a dream come true. Hope to do business with you again :)
Thank YouReviewed on 3/04/2013 Elizabeth M
Our wedding reception was beautiful. Hillary and Patrick made the evening as stress free as possible. Our reception was in December and we had a major snowstorm, the staff was able to move up the service in order for our guests to enjoy the reception but still make it home safely. The entire staff was welcoming and also seamlessly handled food allergy concerns. The menu choices were very good and allowed all of my guests to enjoy their meal. The site offered great indoor photo opportunities (thankfully because of the snow that day), there is a large staircase in the foyer and fireplace inside the bar area. Thank you for providing an amazing experience.
Wonderful, Wonderful ExperienceReviewed on 11/02/2012 Tracey J
The venue was just perfect. We had aproximately 120 guests and the facility accomodated them perfectly. This is not a huge venue, so the cocktail room was very comfortable while still allowing people enough room to mingle and the bar area is quite large. There is a fireplace for ambiance as well. The reception room has a large dance floor, but the room isn't overly large. I provided a beautiful intimate setting and allowed guests to mingle and have fun. Hillary Williamson is the Director of Sales and I can not say enough about her and the staff. They were all wonderful. Hillary is a joy to work with. She is very accomodating, has great ideas and suggestions. She definately goes above and beyond and is just a wonderful person. The food and drinks were great as well. This venue is not as well known as other wedding/occasion venues in the state, but it is well worth checking out, and I'm sure will become a popular venue for weddings and other special occasions!
