The vendor was great, but our experience was truly exceptional because of interactions with Alexis. She was responsive, always positive and most importantly, she was very patient with us throughout the entire process. We cannot say enough good things about her.

We recently had our wedding at the Claremont Hotel. Everyone there was great especially the event catering manager Alexis Garhammer. We planned our wedding on short notice and Alexis was extremely flexible and professional. She was responsive and very communicative throughout the entire process. She was there with us from the planning process including the rehearsal, ceremony and reception. Her team was awesome and went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our special day.

Alexis Garhammer is the BEST! She has eased the stress of wedding planning by replying quickly to emails and phone calls. Alexis is willing to meet with you and discuss any changes or adaptations to the wedding throughout the process. My wedding is going to occur during some construction at the Claremont Hotel and Alexis has ensured that my wedding vision will be perfect. She truly goes above and beyond. I feel so lucky to have her on my wedding team.

The Claremont Hotel Club and Spa, was the location for my November 11th, 2011 wedding. Kathy Marty was the person I was directly in contact with. My planning process started in January of 2010. I knew immediately that I had to have my wedding here. Not only are views from the Sonoma(upstairs) and Horizon (downstairs) rooms breathtaking but the whole experience was a once in lifetime experience, just like our date. There were a few bumps along the way, because I planned my wedding from Tennessee. But in spite of those hiccups, the Claremont far exceeded my expectations. The food was simply divine. 5 stars all the way. Our Bridal suites and Honeymoon suites were magnificent. Kathy really bent over backwards to accommodate our wedding and we are truly appreciative!!

We had an intimate cocktail reception & formal sit down dinner on 10/22/10 for 52 guests. Throughout our 6 month engagement and planning process Melisa Johnson was warm, helpful, and exceptional at her job. My husband and I were so impressed by our overall experience. Our guests raved about the hotel, food (seabass & filet) , beverage (full bar) , staff (Johnny & banquet team), and rooms. Though the Claremont was more expensive than other venues it was worth the price and experience. We are looking forward to coming back for years to come to celebrate anniversaries and future events. Thank you to Melisa and the Catering Staff for treating us so well and making our wedding day a wonderful day to remember in every way!
