Julie did a great job. Our wedding was amazing. Best venue
We held our wedding reception at the Holiday Inn Saratoga Springs. The event was wonderful. The staff were very responsive to our needs. The room was beautiful! The food was delicious and everyone remarked at how friendly and attentive the wait staff were. The Holiday Inn staff guided the band as to where to set up and perform. My groom and I were free to dance and eat and enjoy the company of our guests. After the long day as guests were departing, the staff gathered our flowers and decorations and kept them in a cooler for us for the evening. We enjoyed the suite for the evening and when we checked out the next day, the flowers were still fresh and lovely and packed for us to take home. When I host another event, I will definitely plan on holding it at the Holiday Inn Saratoga Springs.
Our theme/decor was a winter wonderland. We had twinkle, icicle lights under the anchor tables' table cloths, frosted pine cones, fresh cut, white roses, frosted wine bottle vases with frosted branches and "ice chips". We also used the hotel provided mirrors on the tables with the candles and glass candle holders. The deep blue chair sashes and cloth napkins matched my girls' dresses perfectly and really tied everything together.
Julie is AMAZING and made all of our wishes come true. She and the facility were so accommodating from the very beginning of the planning process to the end of the wedding... and that wasn't at the end of the reception. We had family and friends who stayed the weekend at the hotel and until the moment that all of our guests checked out and we went home on the day after our reception, they were doing everything they could to make our time memorable and easy.
We had just the reception at the Holiday Inn. Our guests were RAVING about the reception location. It was very convenient and nice to have the peace-of-mind that they did not need to drive after the reception and that they had a great, classy room to stay in. It definitely surprised a lot of our "skeptical" relatives who did not know that the Holiday Inn could so such a good job.
I loved everything about our wedding at the Holiday Inn. We enjoyed our dinner and overnight stay during the planning process. Meetings with Julie throughout the time leading up to the day were fun and easy. Our overnight room on the night-of was amazing! The food was great! I recommend ALL of the hand-passed appetizers! Everything was great and we still talk about everything as time goes on... Wish we could go back and do it all over again!
We had a Halloween themed wedding. We decorated with fire cauldrons, spider webs, orange and purple lights, fake blood, mummies, black lights and a 12 foot Frankenstein. Our tables were black and orange with candelabra centerpieces.
I have never worked with such accommodating people! They were open to all of our ideas and even gave us a few awesome suggestions! Julie is a delight to work with, she was so friendly and so upbeat about helping up plan our perfect wedding! The staff even wore Halloween costumes! We had our reception there. All of our guests had a great time! The food was fantastic! It was everything we had hoped for and more! The ballroom. It was beautifully decorated and we got to to use every decoration we wanted to. The staff was warm and so much fun!
Our reception was held here after the ceremony at a local chapel. We had an autumn decor with cream and chocolate brown as our color scheme. We used the Holiday Inn candle centerpieces with some of our own accents for our tables and when were arrived the room could not have looked more perfect. We also brought back some mums and small pumpkins from the chapel and Julie and her staff immediately incorporated them into the other decorations.
Julie was wonderful to work with. We had 3 special birthdays the same weekend as our wedding and wanted to add special touches to their hotel rooms along with an additional cake at the reception. She made sure that everything we had planned was orchestrated perfectly while relieving us of a lot of additional work and worry.
We had our reception here and everyone had a great time. The food was terrific, the wait staff was very attentive but never in the way and we received multiple comments on what a wonderful job the hotel did and how they couldn't believe they were at a Holiday Inn!! Once again Julie was present all evening and coordinated everything for us - leaving us the entire night to enjoy our guests and the reception.
The entire evening was so enjoyable it was hard to pick one favorite part. When we first walked into the room for the cocktail hour we couldn't believe the beautiful transformation Julie and her staff had made to the room.The room was also very spacious so there was no crowding in of tables. We had about 150 guests all who love to dance and there was always room on the dance floor for everyone. All in all it was a day that we will never forget. Everything went off without any problems and at the end of the night the guests were still not ready to leave!! Thank you Julie and the Holiday Inn for giving us such a special day filled with so many great memories.
Colors were turquoise and black. We chose black napkins and used cream colored roses with candles for our centerpieces. Both the Wedding and Reception were held at the Holiday Inn. We chose the buffet.
Julie was very accommodating. She was quick to respond to any questions that we had. Being an out of town bride wasn't an issue, she put everyone at ease. We wouldn't have known what to do without her.
It was great having the Wedding and Reception in one location, especially being that it was a Friday evening wedding. No worries about traffic and getting from one place to the next.
Where do I begin....The ballroom is pretty, the food was great and what a delicious cake. The price couldn't be beat in Saratoga in the summer and Congress Park is right there for some beautiful outdoor pictures. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.
We chose to have an autumn themed wedding. We brought it small pumpkin gourds and leaves to decorate the room for just under 120 guests. We had a candle centerpiece on each of the guest tables'. We had just under 120 guests.
The Holiday Inn at Saratoga Springs was very flexible in regards to our needs. Everything from decor, table seating, the wedding package, the events through the evening. Anytime we had a question Julie was able to get us an answer within a timely manner. They were willing to meet our needs and help us design the reception we wanted. They also were able to provide us with a breakfast the next morning for our guest and us. They did a fantastic job!
We had our reception there after our ceremony at a local church. The staff was excellent! The staff was continuously making sure that guests had everything they needed at the table. All the dinners we initially tasted were wonderful. The meals were hot and delicious even with serving a large group! Many people complimented on the dishes that were served. Coming from an Italian family we like to know that everyone had enough to eat and at our reception they did. We didn't have any guests that were unhappy. Many guests complimented the meal and the service from the Holiday Inn staff.
We have to say their hospitality and willingness to assist us and our guests with excellence. The organization and planning part can seem a little overwhelming but the staff at the Holiday Inn did a fantastic job. Everything was coordinated beautifully. We don't have any reservations on how the events, meals, staff, decor, service etc were handled. All around they were top notch. We are very pleased with the service we received for our reception from the initial consultation all the way to packing up our belongings after the wedding weekend.
Our theme I would say would be pretty modern, and our colors were black and hot pink. They did an amazing job making our vision come true, right down to napkin colors and chair covers. The tables were decorated just as I described, right down to table numbers that displayed photos of our dogs, the candle centerpieces (which were included in the cost) and the hot pink rose petals.
The Holiday Inn did an amazing job meeting any and all needs we had throughout the entire process. My husband and I live out of town, but grew up near Saratoga. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating, especially since we were doing so much from out of town. The staff was always there when had a question or change, and trust me I was a high maintenance bride and they were perfect.
We had our ceremony at our hometown Church a few towns away and had our reception at the Holiday Inn. The hotel staff was amazing the day of our Wedding, making sure everyone was happy and that everyone was in its place. Our guest made good use of the hotel bar long after the reception ended and the staff was nice enough to offer one of their meeting rooms to the bridal party, family and friends who stayed late to continue the celebration, giving us a place to continue our fun while respecting the hotels other guests. Many of our family and friends decided to stay in the hotel and we got amazing reviews from them as well. We put on a morning-after breakfast for everyone who stayed over or who lived nearby. It was the perfect end to a perfect Wedding weekend. The venue is beautiful regardless with beautiful landscaping and flowers and they really fit the reception room to your vision. We also were able to get some beautiful photographs taken of us and the bridal party on the stone staircase down into Congress Park, which is located in the back of the hotel.
Its hard to choose just one thing, the staff was amazing both the day of our event and with all the planning beforehand, the venue was beautiful and you really can't beat the cost of everything. The price is so reasonable and it includes so much. I would call myself a pretty high maintenance bride and they met and exceeded all of my expectations. I can't thank them enough for making our day so amazing!
We had a loose wedding theme of "travel" although most of the wedding was just tied together with our color scheme. The Holiday Inn was great about setting up the tables exactly as we described, including the table number which displayed photos of my fiance and I in various locations around the world. It was perfect for a vacation destination like Saratoga Springs.
They were wonderful about meeting our needs. All of our guests were accommodated, from hotel rooms to reception needs to the breakfast the next morning. There was not any request that we made that could not be met. They let us rearrange the set-up of the room a bit to fit our specific idea, relocated flower arrangements from reception room to morning breakfast room, and provide hotel bags for every guest. They were wonderful!
We had our ceremony at the Church of St. Peter's, which is directly across the street. That made it very convenient for our guests. Our reception was at the Holiday Inn, and many guest stayed in the hotel. We put on a morning-after breakfast for everyone who stayed over or who lived nearby. It was perfect. Our night owl guests made use of the hotel's great location to go downtown and help us continue the celebration!
Our favorite part of working with the Holiday Inn was how professional, organized, and knowledgeable they were. They instantly had answers to every question I asked, and they responded to every e-mail and phone call I made. They were great about offering advice and helped with vendors and ideas. We had some minor issues with other parts of our wedding, but the Holiday Inn was on top of it all. They were so reliable, which was important to me (a nervous and stressed bride)!
Our Ceremony and Reception were both held at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga Springs, NY. I have always loved this venue (I had been to several friend's weddings at this location). The proximity to downtown Saratoga, Congress Park, Saratoga Race Course and SPAC make the Holiday Inn perfect!!!
Julie is amazing at what she does. There was a wedding at the hotel the night before and another when during the day. Never once did I ever feel like Julie did not have time for me. Most of my communication with Julie was done via e-mail and she was always more than helpful and quick to answer my questions. Julie was very flexible in setting up times for both me and my husband to come in and meet with her. Julie was able to secure our ceremony room the night before our wedding for us to use for our rehearsal. Julie also was very helpful in making sure I had everything I needed/wanted in regards to ceremony/reception decor. The only issue we had was when my brother in law went to check into his room, it was not ready. Given that it was July and a week before the Track opened, I understand that the hotel was quite busy and the staff was more than accommodating to get him into another room to use until his actual room was ready for him.
Not a complaint from me or any of my guests!!! The Holiday Inn provides an excellent service, and Julie is a most certainly a pleasure to work with. The food there is awesome, I still crave the Chicken Romano we had selected as one of our meal choices.
I love most everything about the Holiday Inn. They truly make your wedding planning experience fun, exciting and most importantly easy. I loved that we had the option to use table centerpieces that the hotel provided, in which we did use and looked amazing on our tables. The hotel's location is right by Congress Park. The park is a phenomenal place for pictures, and it is nice to be able to just walk across the parking lot and down some stairs to get to the park. If you are considering a wedding in the Saratoga Springs area, you must look into the Holiday Inn!
