  • We loved having our wedding here. It is the best value in the area after pricing multiple venues- we paid ~$750 for the Montpelier Ballroom for 3 hours. It fit our 70 guest perfectly and was already so nicely decorated we didn't have to add a lot to make it the perfect space. Our guests loved staying in the hotel and they offered us a discount to rent the wedding suites which have an amazing view of the city. Emily and Mia were great a communication for any of our needs. Jorge was a big help in coordinating our stuff, cars and guests. Don't think twice about going to check this place out for your next event!
