Perfect is a word that is hard to use, yet the reception at St. John’s for our daughter's wedding on August 26, 2016 was as close to perfection as we have ever seen. First, let me say that I cannot imagine having anyone better to handle the details for us than Linda Johnson. Her caring and attention-to-details was unmatched and we always knew that she would make available all the special touches to make the evening truly magical. When we arrived at St. John’s and found her near the hall entrance waiting for us, it gave us a feeling of calm and relaxation that we knew everything had been taken care properly. And upon entrance to the ballroom, we were overtaken by the beauty and elegance that we were experiencing. In a world where quality service is often a surprising bonus, the service provided by the staff was by far the most impeccable we have ever seen! And don’t take our word for it – literally dozens of guests voiced to us that the service was unsurpassed, and they had never seen such commitment at any other venue. With that being said, our team captain Jennifer was not only efficient and timely, she was also a complete delight. She checked on us during every dinner course to make sure we were satisfied, and it seemed every time we turned around, she was there making sure nothing had been forgotten and we were please with their efforts. Again, scores of guests have complimented the service from the bartenders to the wait staff and everything in between. We, and our guests, felt overwhelmed by the extraordinary service of Jennifer and everyone else who worked that night. Thank you almost doesn’t feel like enough, but from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for helping to make the evening such a memorable one.
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.
ABSOLUTELY the best place to have your reception! Linda is amazing to work with! My guests are still talking about their food and appetizers! I felt like a princess the whole night as the coordinators made sure we had drinks the entire night! I wish I could relive this night over a thousand times it was so perfect!
We just had our wedding at the Inn at St. John's and we could not be happier! All of their staff, especially Stacy Davis (event planning) and Kathy (chapel coordinator), are an absolute pleasure to work with. They are friendly, professional, and willing to accommodate literally anything you need or want throughout the entire experience. We stayed in the Presidential Suite and used it for the rehearsal dinner and for getting ready on the morning of the wedding. We took bridal party pictures in the waterfall garden and in the hotel. We had our ceremony in the beautiful chapel and used Fr. Tom from St. Kenneth Parish in Plymouth, MI (who was absolutely hilarious, by the way). And we had our reception in the Grande Ballroom. Everything went exactly as we had hoped, and we had ISJ staff around us practically at all times to make sure that anything we needed was taken care of. The Inn at St. John's checks all the boxes for a dream wedding. The grounds and every building/room are breathtaking, the music is classy, the service is impeccable, and the food is beyond compare. I am so glad we chose to have our wedding here, I wouldn't change a thing!
We had our reception at St. John's on September 4th, 2016 in the Atrium room. It was absolutely beautiful and I was so impressed by how smoothly everything went. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We loved the whole evening!
The Inn at St. John's is classy, meticulous and a well-oiled machine; you certainly get what you pay for here. If you'd prefer not to worry about a single detail on your wedding day, this is the place. A wedding coordinator is included in your package who goes above and beyond to accommodate your wishes and needs and ensures that the entire process -- from planning to execution -- runs smoothly. Linda Johnson is an absolute dream to work with and became like family to us! We couldn't have asked fora more positive and magical experience. Thank you Inn at St. John's for an unforgettable night!
There are so many positive adjectives I could use to describe our experience with The Inn at St. John's. If the venue fits your budget, it's WORTH THE MONEY! Our wedding coordinator, Linda, was phenomenal. The day of the wedding went swimmingly; the attentiveness and customer service was outstanding. Our guests had a good experience and were impressed with the venue (especially the food!). Plus, the Atrium is lovely. :) Thank you to the Inn for a wonderful experience!!
Loved having our reception at the Inn of St. Johns - it was beautiful!
The Inn at St. John's helped make our wedding the best day of my life. Stacy was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was so helpful every step of the way and made the planning process so easy and enjoyable. The grande ballroom was stunning and the food was awesome. I have received so many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed their meal. We also had a French fry bar for our late night snack which was a huge hit! Thank you to everyone at the Inn at St. John's for making our wedding day so perfect. Best decision I made in my planning process was choosing this amazing venue.
This place is a dream. Everything about The Inn at St. John's was perfect. Linda is incredible and was always prompt in helping and answering a million questions and just making sure the best day of my life was just that. From the complementary suite that had rose petals at the end of the night to the bridal suite to the incredible chapel to the beautiful ballroom- it was literally my perfect wedding. The food was great, staff excellent. I just got married on April 2nd, 2016 and I have referred so many people there already. They truly made my dream wedding a reality. Book them and don't look back!
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.
