Astounding! Magnificent! Perfect. Our wedding on 5/21/2016 couldn't have been smoother and more perfect in our eyes. The Inn was an absolutely beautiful venue from the chapel, to the ballroom, to the hotel and grounds and everything in between. We have had endless compliments of the venue selection and I can't speak more highly of it. Kathy K., our chapel contact was super organized and helpful with all of our questions and always kept us in the know. Linda Johnson, our events manager was beyond pleasant and felt like one of the family by the end of our time with her. Shante Parks, our hotel contact for all our reservation needs was on point with everything and offered the very best she could to us. These three as well as others were truly superstars. The food was incredible! All of it; which was a lot. Another high point for compliments from our guests. Everything is just so well put together, organized, seamless. We could not be happier with our choice.
Our wedding was exceptional! The service, food, and consulting was magnificent! Chef Terrance went out of his way to create the best menu possible. The salmon and filet were so delicious and many compliments on the taste. Ella did an amazing job organizing my event and went above and beyond to make sure everything was amazing! The venue decor is upscale and classy and the service is the best!! It definitely was our dream wedding! Highly recommended!!!
I had my reception at the Inn at St. John's on June 18. Overall, I would give the Inn at St. John's 5 stars. The service is exceptional and they really think of every last detail in the days leading up to the event. The food was great and was served very quickly. The bartenders were wonderful, always knew exactly what I wanted and had drinks ready for me. They truly treat the bride, groom, and other guests of honor like royalty. Shante Parks in the hotel was wonderful, she went so far out of her way to make sure all my out of town guests were accounted for and happy. The only reason I did not rank this 5 stars is because of some issues I had with my coordinator, Stacy. Although she asked about every little detail, it didn't seem that she did a lot with that information. I informed her of allergies and dietary needs, but I don't think this information as passed along. The biggest problem we had though was with timing. I had three friends acting as day-off coordinators. We were guaranteed to be able to get into the room (I used the Judea) by 4pm, but had been informed that the previous event was ending at noon and we could be in by 2. I was also informed that tables would be set up by 2pm so we could start decorating. Well, when the friends went to set up at 2, not only were no tables set but no one was there to set up the tables. When my wedding guests came down to check on the progress and realized what was happening, the men stayed to help set up the tables. 15 of my wedding guests missed me walking down the aisle because they were setting up tables!!! When they tried telling Stacy the urgency, they were told the wedding "didn't start until 6, so we have plenty of time." It was my guests that had to inform the venue that THE RECEPTION started at 6, not the wedding. Not what I would expect after spending hours with Stacy going over a timeline down to 5 minute increments. Luckily, I didn't know about any of this until after the wedding, otherwise I would have been devastated. Everyone else involved, especially our banquet manager Megan was amazing! But this one issue is the reason I cannot give a 5-star review. The only other complaint I have is that all the leftover desserts were to be sent to my hotel room and instead I never saw them, that was also disappointing considering all the money we spent and the fact that my husband and I were STARVING, but if I had to guess, I would imagine this is another detail I told Stacy that did not get passed along. Advice: If you deal with Stacy, make sure to follow up with your banquet manager or someone else!
I may be biased, but I think my wedding was absolutely beyond perfect. We utilized the Chapel for a full Catholic ceremony, then guests flowed directly to cocktail hour and reception in the Atrium Ballroom. I knew the site and the food would be awesome, but I could not believe how perfect the staff and service were on the big day. We had dedicated assistants for both the ceremony and receptions. They didn't miss a beat! I wouldn't change a single thing about the whole experience. Also - Friday events are the way to go if you want flow between ceremony and reception, plus there are added promos vs. Saturday events. Highly recommend!!!!
Appalling Management in wake of serious incident – AVOID AT ALL COSTS I stayed at St John’s… from 16 to 17 March 2016. Work was being carried out in the Hotel it should have been in full order of functioning. Part of the entrance hall floor had been uncovered to be resurfaced. Invisible glue had been put on the floor and left unattended, unprotected without any warning sign by careless and unprofessional management. I harshly slid and fell damaging shoes, bag and clothes in the glue. At the time I did not think I was hurt but this is now in question. After attempting to tell me that the incident was entirely my fault (yes really!) the management committed to repair the damages caused. Since then they have done everything in their power not to do so, including alleging that I should be in direct contact with the builder who was working for the hotel. Even at Group level, the best response you get is silence. Clearly they are using the fact that I am now far, back in Europe. Keep in mind that any trouble at the St John’s xxxxx will leave you with no other choice but to go to Court ! An immense shame. SO.
We loved our venue! We were in the Grande Ballroom, it was absolutely beautiful. The Chapel was gorgeous as well. The wedding and chapel coordinators make sure to have everything very organized and keep you on your time line. We were out of state and recommend to get in touch it was easiest to call- some emails were not returned. The food was delicious! Every thing tasted better the day of the wedding than at the food tasting! Everything was organized, cleaned and taken care of. We did not have to worry about one thing! All of our gifts, cake topper, veil- EVERYTHING was brought to our room by one of our wedding captains so we did not have to worry about a thing! We definitely recommend St. John's as a one stop shop- we had our ceremony, reception, golf outing and stayed in the hotel. This is an excellent location for out of town brides!!
GORGEOUS CHAPEL! It's breathtaking and irresistible. My husband was dead set on having the ceremony at The Inn at St. John's and I'm very pleased that we ended up doing so. However, if you are not also having your reception there, I'd strongly recommend checking out smaller Catholic Churches in the area. You're only able to have a Saturday Noon ceremony if you are not also having a reception there. For the amount of money spent for the use of the chapel (it is not like other churches where a donation is sufficient), there isn't any flexibility regarding times, bridal suite usage, photography times, ceremony personalizations, and so forth.
ISJ was a dream come true! The staff was extremely helpful, the food was exquisite and the whole event ran smoothly. My family and guests were very impressed with the ISJ from top to bottom. They are wedding experts!
Absolutely PerfectReviewed on 11/25/2015 Kristen S
I worked with Ella from the very beginning to reserve our date. She was EXTREMELY accommodating in every way. We booked the Atrium and are still getting compliments on the food and the room. The martini bar was a HUGE hit and the bartenders knew your order when you walked up! Very professional and friendly. Perfect venue!
Everything was perfection! Dreams turned into reality! Gorgeous venue, accommodating and the suite is unreal!
The Inn at St. John's went above and beyond for us from start to finish. Ella, our coordinator, was responsive, accommodating, and understanding. Everyone who we interacted with during the planning process and on the day of was so kind and helpful. The food was delicious and the service was first class. Our wedding was everything we could have imagined and I would highly recommend The Inn at St. John's.
I had my wedding at the Inn at St Johns on April/2015. Everything was perfect! The wedding coordinator, chapel coordinator, and all their team, including waiters and waitresses are absolutely fantastic. They will work with you to accommodate special requests, and make sure you have the wedding you always dreamed of. 100% recommend! :-)
My daughters wedding was like a fairy tale! The Attrium looked amazing, with the moon and stars sparkling overhead and tealights offering a beautiful, soft glow around the room. I loved that the chapel, hotel and reception is all located in the same facility. Ella, the reception coordinator, was beyond amazing! The whole staff goes above and beyond expectation, the food is delectable and we have received nothing but fabulous comments from everyone who attended the wedding; their comments being it was the most beautiful wedding/reception they had ever been to. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants to make a statement, and wants perfection!
2 stars only because the place is beautifulReviewed on 11/15/2014 Emily
Many of my friends got engaged/married before me, I always told everyone to check out this venue because it's beautiful! I finally got engaged and was looking for a venue for my reception. I first ONLY looked at The Inn at St. John's because I've always liked the venue. It was the only place I ever pictured having my wedding. It's beautiful. However, my experience working with the staff was terrible and impersonal. First, the coordinator replied to all my emails right away, until my first meeting there. We had an appointment but still waited for over twenty minutes before anyone helped me and my family that came with me. After seeing the venue, that was the last time anyone talked to me from there. I called and emailed the coordinator twice....I'm still waiting for a reply. It's been over three weeks... I've now had to look for other venues since they clearly didn't want me to have my reception there. I will never recommended the place again. So impersonal and unprofessional.
Absolutely Perfect!Reviewed on 10/20/2014 Sarah L
I truly do not even know where to start when describing how amazing The Inn at St John's was for my wedding! I had my wedding shower there as well. The service is exceptional! I was on a very strict budget and our event coordinator worked magic. The hotel room that is given to the bride and groom was awesome! If I had to plan my wedding all over again, one of the few things that I would not change is having my wedding at the Inn at St. John's. Highly recommend!!
appalledReviewed on 8/31/2014
I was hoping to have my special day at the Inn at St. John's in Spring of 2016. I spoke with a wedding professional by the name of Ella G.. (unsure of spelling of last name). She took the excitement of my planning and ripped it out of me. She was condescending and quite frankly, just plain rude. She spoke down to me and made me feel that my money was not worthy of the Inn at St. John's. I understand that they have multiple weddings a year, but my $40,000 budget wasn't good enough? I will and would never recommend them or that sales person. She ruined the process for me. I will take my business elsewhere.
Wonderful experienceReviewed on 8/14/2014 Nicole Q
First and foremost The Inn at St.John make it so easy to plan your wedding! You get assigned to a coordinator that is extremely helpful and really take what your vision is and make it into real dream. Secondly the food was by far the best food I have ever had at a wedding. It was warm and tons of great taste! All of our guests kept raving on oh great the food was! Thirdly the staff that work the venue the night of your big day are such a great help! They treat you like you are the most important people. We felt so blessed to be able to have it at this beautiful location. The grounds are wonderful, there are to a of gardens and beautiful and enchanting waterfalls for great pictures. Nothing but the best!!
WeddingReviewed on 8/13/2014 Stephanie B
When I first heard about the Inn at St Johns I made a trip to stay there and try their restaurant with my boyfriend. I was blown away with the hotel, food, and the chapel. I knew this was the place I would want to get married right away. A couple years later when I got engaged I visited here and only here and booked that same day. It was one of the best choices I made. The staff, especially Ella was so great to work with. They answered all of my questions, it did not matter if my wedding was still a year out or in a week. I had my ceremony in the chapel and my reception in the atrium. The whole thing was beautiful and the staff was very helpful the day of. The staff catered to my husband and I. They always made sure everything was going right and made sure we had everything we needed. When the food came out I was shocked. Servers came out in rows so everyone was served at once, not table by table. People still talk about that to this day. They made sure my requests were answered and that they happened. I wanted to do things in a bit of a different order, I wanted to wait until after dinner to cut my cake, have my first dance, and wanted my cake linen moved to the table that my cake would be served on. They made sure all these things happened and informed me when they would be happening. The staff was so nice to everyone, even made sure our parents were taken care of the whole night. I could not have asked for a better wedding, they excited my dreams!
Wedding 6/14/2014Reviewed on 8/11/2014 Natalie S
The Inn at St. John's is a beautiful place to get married and have a reception! The chapel is gorgeous and the garden is beautiful for pictures. The garden is picture perfect, literally! The wedding coordinator and the staff are very helpful and always there for anything you need. The planning process was smooth and the price is average when compared to other venues. The Inn at St. John's exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend this venue!
Lovely!Reviewed on 8/07/2014 Kari H
I would highly recommend having a reception at The Inn at St. Johns! We worked with Linda Johnson, and she was amazing! We were married Jan 31st, 2014 at Greenmead, then held our reception in the atrium at St. Johns. It was gorgeous, amazing, wonderful, and exceeded expectations. Our guests all commented on how beautiful it was! We didn't really need to do too much for the centerpieces or decorations because the room was beautiful all on its own. The staff here was so helpful and nice. Throughout the evening, they were checking in with me to make sure everything was going smoothly and to see if I needed anything. The planning process was a breeze with Linda. I didn't feel there were any 'hidden' fees or surprises. The price lists made it easy to understand and additional costs for anything extra we wanted. The tasting you are invited to after booking is a reason it itself to pick them, haha. It is a gorgeous sit-down dinner where you try pretty much anything they offer for your reception. The bride and groom's spots are complimentary, there is a fee for 4 add'l guests. My parents and my groom's parents came and it was a wonderful evening. They all said it was totally worth the money. My husband's mom hosted the wedding shower there, too, and it was beautiful. It was in the room overlooking the atrium. I believe her experience with planning that was a breeze, too. I cannot say enough good things about The Inn at St. Johns. To be honest, we were looking for something less traditional, and we looked at a few other places. A few people mentioned St. Johns, so to appease them, we went and took a look. As soon as I walked into the atrium, my mind was made up! It is a stunning location, and it was as least just not a normal banquet room (which St. Johns does have many of and they are also beautiful, haha). It was the one place we went to that my fiance was just was excited about! Do yourself a favor and at least go check it out!
Out of state wedding-perfection!Reviewed on 8/06/2014 Theresa S
I have nothing but great things to say about the Inn at St. Johns! We were planning a long distance wedding and were trying to find a place that had everything we wanted: not much transportation required, place for our guests to sleep, delicious food, and organization so we would not have to be stressed. This provided everything we needed and our guests absolutely loved everything about the place. This place is a wedding machine. This might seem bad to you and I was hesitant at first because of that but honestly, it was the best decision I made in planning our wedding. Since they do weddings all the time, they know exactly what you need and how to run every single detail without a hitch. Everybody told me something was going to go wrong and not to worry, but I literally had the perfect wedding. The inn was so friendly, super attentive, and very much on time for everything. I did not see another bride the whole night, and the staff made me feel special even though I know they had probably worked a wedding the night before. It is not your typical ballroom in a hotel, every room they set up is beautiful. Besides having our ceremony and reception there, we had the rehearsal dinner and a brunch the next day at the Inn. You would think that we would get sick of the place, but we were just so relieved that we did not have to travel anywhere, and our guests could enjoy a beautiful stay at a beautiful venue. All the food for each meal was unique and different, and ALL delicious. My wedding was last December, and if you are planning a winter wedding, BOOK THIS PLACE! It has all the charm of an inn, decorations, and just plain gorgeous trees. It was a winter wonderland, and we got some amazing pictures because of it. If you have a summer wedding, I am sure the use of the Golf center and everything else would definitely be a hit! Again, I think this place is fantastic if you want convenience, great food, and the charm of something other than your everyday hotel. The price was reasonable and my guests are still to this day raving about how much fun they had and that everything was so easy! Definitely had the most amazing day, and I would love to come back and visit!!!
Beautiful venue, attentive staff, great valueReviewed on 8/06/2014 Courtney M
I got married (ceremony and reception) at St. John's in January and everything was wonderful. The grounds, the chapel and the atrium are obviously breathtaking but the best part about having my wedding here was how easy Andrea Hansen on the reception side and the chapel staff made the whole planning process for me. They could answer nearly every question I had immediately, and if not they were prompt in getting back to me. Like every bride, I had a thousand questions and concerns but they never made me feel like I was bothering them. Because I was in good hands, I felt relaxed and confident everything was perfect on my wedding day. The wedding day itself was phenomenal. Every detail was perfect. The hotel management was friendly and helpful. They were even able to fulfill my request for an early check in for my reservation. Being able to get ready in the immaculate presidential suite with my bridesmaids is still one of my fondest memories of that evening. The banquet staff was also great! I had two day-of cancellations and one add-on and they quickly and effectively cured my table arrangement dilemma. This saved me a great deal of stressing about who would sit where, how we would change the tables, and if everyone would still get the right meals. And of course, everything went smoothly. The amount of compliments I received about the beautiful atrium, the delicious food and the attentive (and funny!) bartenders was innumerable. Knowing that St. John's was able to not only give me the day of my dreams but also provide my guests with a beautiful evening was everything I could have hoped for on my wedding day. We held a brunch at Five the morning after which was also amazing. They cleared a section for us which my family and friends really enjoyed. Most importantly, the food and service was great! I cannot say one bad thing about my experience. Another thing I didn't realize was going to be so great about St Johns until the day of was how convenient it was for not only me and my bridal party, but also my guests (especially out of towners) to not have to shuttle around to different locations. It really is the perfect spot for a gorgeous ceremony, reception and overnight stay all in the same place!
Wonderful!Reviewed on 6/17/2014 Michael W
The atmosphere and environment were wonderful and the staff that provided and serviced the food were courteous and prompt.
Very convenient venue, excellent wedding day service!Reviewed on 6/10/2014 Karla F
You have to spend a minimum of 19K on food and drink, therefore with all the other costs it ends up being around 25K. The wedding was amazing. I stayed at the hotel, the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all in the same place. Food was incredible also. Only complain is the planning staff, not very flexible and since it's a popular venue they don't seem to try to make you feel like you are special.
AmazingReviewed on 5/21/2014 Carrie D
The Inn at St. John's did an amazing job. They went above and beyond for us. The food was great, and we received so many complements from our guest with how beautiful this venue is. The atrium is the most amazing room that you could possibly have your wedding at.
