We staied at the Skirvin the night of our wedding. After a long a stressful day I had no idea what to expect at a hotel. What I didn't expect was the beautiful decor, extremly friendly staff and amazing rooms. We are just common people and we felt like we were real top-notch... Read More people. We got the same great service as the executives that were staying at the hotel along side us. The beds.. amazing, the shower... so cool...everything in the room, decor, hallways, entry, and valet parking was planned and executed with the guest in mind. Everyone was prompt and so personable. Loved it and would love to go back!


Wonderful stay!

We actually used our room for my bridal suite to get ready first. They were extremely accomodating in all our little needs like a newspaper, a comb, tying a tie and they even tried to get a security ink tag off a shoe for us. As for our actual stay, it was great! Bed was... Read More divine! We were able to order chocolate covered strawberries and wine late that night when we finally returned. We were also able to put a tag on our door and order breakfast in bed at a time that we chose. Everything was perfect!

Love the Skirvin!!!

The Skirvin was excellent and really made sure my special day was perfect. We had about 250 guests come which the Ballroom was the perfect accommodation. Many of my guests also stayed at the hotel which was very convienent. Debbie and Jenny at the Skirvin were SO great and made... Read More sure to answer all my questions and timely. It was so comforting to know that I could email a list of questions--however small or big and they would all get answered. They also helped make many of my ideas come to life. They are truly experts when it comes to weddings and understand what works and what doesnt. The catering staff were very open to any special food requests which I loved. Everyone raved about how great the food tasted, how great the setup of the food looked, and that the food was promptly ready when guests arrived. Everything the night of was taken care of and our evening went flawlessly. I can not say enough great things about the Skirvin, I know there were several staff involved that made the night go so great! The ballroom looked beautiful and all my guests had a great time!


Fantastic, amazing service

Working with the Skirvin was fantastic. I had a little issue with my main contact changing three times, but they are pretty good at transferring information on. Food was fantastic, got to taste everything and make modifications, willing to go above and beyond. Just be careful... Read More when catering, we had some people order a child's plate when an adult plate had been given to their child so we got charged double for about 20 kids who were old enough for the adult plate but wanted the child plate and never sent the adult plate back. That was the only bad thing about the Skirvin, but it did cost us $750 extra... Just be careful of that, otherwise the Skirvin is fantastic!


Our First Night

The room was phenomenal. We could have stayed in all night and not needed anything - there was a separate bedroom from the living area and the bathroom was to die for. The history of the hotel is neat and it is beautiful inside. We ate in their restaurant which is nice, although... Read More pricey. Also the waitstaff seemed a little rude to me. It was a little busy for my tastes when we stayed here our first night because there was a basketball tournament downtown and a wedding going on at the hotel, but it was still a very nice stay. Also the parking and getting to the hotel was complicated because of construction so we ended up going into the back entrance, which wasn't what we were supposed to do. Whoops!


too expensive but good service

$200 for queen bed. Nothing special but great service.

We had our wedding reception on the 14th floor of the Skirvin in the Venetian Room on October 9th, 2010. It was amazing! I am still hearing from guests how beautiful it was and how great the food was. Marci and Mark were a pleasure to work with and I feel that they made every... Read More effort to ensure that the reception went as planned and was even more beautful that I could have ever imagined. The staff was quick and efficient as well as friendly. The guests were blown away by the hotel in general...it's beautiful. As for the price...I feel it was a great value. We priced a couple of other places but the Skirvin does not charge for room use (one place we checked was $2500 just to use it!), they only had us choose two courses instead of three as we had a cocktail hour preceding the dinner, and the per person bar package was a value a well. I was forced to choose the 10-20k option but for 110 people to have a plated steak or fish dinner, an open bar for 5 hours, coffe and tea service, valet parking, and all the little extras we ended up spending about 14k including taxes and service fees. Well worth it!!
