  • We had our wedding on March 14th and it was better than I could ever imagine. Cathy was there to make sure the day was smooth. She was amazing from the first day we met leading up to the event. She’s was always responsiveness and making sure things went as planned. The Hotel and staff was also very welcoming and helpful in making sure all the guest were happy. The Riverside Hotel is a great location and atmosphere for a wedding or any event. I would highly recommend the Riverside hotel for anyone looking to have an event there.
