Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This welcoming and recently renovated hotel has a prime East Town location just steps from the Green Line and the area's riverfront attractions. Open, airy indoor and outdoor gathering spaces peppered throughout the property lend it a great "neighborhood" feel.
  • Use their lush courtyard for your romantic al fresco ceremony; with its tall, ivy-covered walls and bountiful foliage, you'll feel like you've stepped into the pages of "The Secret Garden". (Intimate receptions can be held here, too!)
  • The ballroom is decked out with everything you need for a great party, including an expert staff to help you pull it all together. Generous, affordable packages include fun perks like elegant wall and ceiling drapery, and a complimentary wedding night suite.
