I cannot say enough good things about The Desmond. We worked with Karen up until the wedding day and then Andy on the day of the wedding. They executed an amazing wedding beyond my expectations. Everyone was very responsive and accommodating to all of our needs and wishes. I would highly recommend this venue to a future couple looking for a place to get married.

The Desmond Hotel was an excellent choice for our wedding. Kevin and Alyssa were so helpful leading up to the wedding and helped us to plan every detail perfectly and reduce our planning stress! They were accommodating and flexible with all of our requests. We had a large number of out of town guests and the hotel was able to give our guests reasonable room prices and reserve as many rooms as we needed. The staff were endlessly helpful on the night of the reception and even boxed up our dinners for the next day since most of our time was spent on the dance floor and we did not get much time to enjoy the delicious food!

Absolutely book this venue! The staff is amazing and so accommodating. We worked with Karen to plan the wedding, and then Kevin on the day of. They were both so professional and our wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more. So much was included in our package - the centerpieces for our reception, our cake, transportation to the church for our family from out of town....We are STILL getting compliments 3 months later on how good the food was. The space was perfect for our 110 person reception and the overnight bridal suite was breathtaking. The staff was extremely attentive, bringing drinks to us and our VIP tables all night - they didn't skip a beat. They also made sure my husband and I got to sample some of our favorite appetizers from cocktail hour. The menus were extensive and there were so many good meal choices to select from. The price was extremely reasonable and competitive with other venues in the area. PLEASE do yourself a favor and book your wedding reception here - you won't regret it!
