The night of the wedding could not have been any better. Bertha (day of coordinator) was unbelievable! Her staff was incredible as well. The room was perfect and service was fantastic. We received and are still receiving compliments! I know there are a few reviews that complained about the air but we had 150 people in the 3rd floor ball room on a hot/humid August day and had no issues.
My only complaint is working with Nicole and her staff leading up to the wedding was not a good experience. The communication was terrible when working with the two Lauren's and it got to the point that we were only dealing with Nicole (the manager) at the end of the planning process. There were multiple instances of 'misinformation' and not getting back to us to the point we started to feel taken advantage of, a very scary feeling when you are planning your perfect day.
All that being said, I wouldn't of had it anywhere else because the room and day of staff was that fantastic.

The colony club is just stunning! We did have hesitations because of the price, but in the end it was so worth it. The entire staff we worked with from the first meeting up until the night of the event were so great. Judy (one of 2 banquet managers) even called me from her cell phone and told me to call her anytime! They were accommodating to our inquiries and requests and responded promptly.

The venue is just so beautiful and unique. As the other reviews say, our guests were stunned. We had our event in the 3rd floor ballroom and the balcony on the mezzanine level is such a great touch. We did our "king and queen" entrance from there and I really felt like royalty. Our friends were seated up there and even though it seems a bit removed, they loved it! We also had a jazz singer (Ben Sharkey) perform during dinner and the banquet managers insisted he set up upstairs. I wanted him on the main floor and really tried to make it happen, but they insisted. They really knew what they were doing! It was like out of a movie when he started performing from the balcony. People were eating dinner and didn't notice at first that the music was live, but when they did they were so enchanted!

We did have a larger wedding (almost 300) so just know that it does get tight. I insisted on having a mix of long and round tables (note: there is an extra fee for long tables as they don't own that many) which took up more room than if I had just done all round. But, our dance floor was a little small. They say they can hold 400, but I wouldn't go over 300 unless you are just having cocktails.

Our wedding at the Colony Club was absolutely perfect! Everyone we worked with, from our sales managers Lauren and Nicole to our Banquet Manager Bertha were incredibly attentive and wonderful to work with. A number of guests even told us our meal was not only the best "wedding food" they have ever had, but one guest even told us it was the best meal she has ever had anywhere. We were so impressed by the entire staff and cannot thank them enough for such a perfect night!

Everyone at the Colony Club was fabulous to work with, leading up to the wedding and on the day of. Very responsive and helpful in answering all questions. Everything on our day went perfectly. The on site managers and door security ensured everything went smoothly. All of our items that we brought to have setup as well as all of our cards and gifts were gathered / boxed up by the staff and ready to go so we had zero stress at the end of the night trying to gather things. The bride and grooms rooms upstairs are great, they brought snacks and drinks to us. The food was amazing, we got so many compliments on the food. And the building itself is absolutely gorgeous. Everything was perfect, you can't go wrong with the Colony Club!

The Colony Club was the perfect venue for our wedding! Nearly a year later, we are still hearing compliments from our guests! From my first phone call with Nicole until the end our wedding reception, the staff was extremely professional, helpful and accommodating! Nicole and Allison did a fantastic job. They were always positive and answered my many questions and concerns. Even though I requested a speciality cocktail only a week and a half prior to our wedding date, Allison ensured that the staff was prepared to make it for our guests.

We have a special thank you to Judy! She was the event coordinator the evening of our wedding and saved our wedding flowers when the arrangements on candelabras began following over (our florist got stuck in traffic with the Tigers game and couldn’t make it back in time to fix the arrangements). As soon as I walked into the ballroom Judy was right by my side to tell me what happened and that she had to modify them so they would stay up. Without her, I may have had my one any only “bridezilla” moment. From start to finish Judy was fantastic with everything! She kept the night moving and my husband and I on track! Thank you Judy!

The food was excellent! The chef even had the head waiter ask me if the vegetables that I asked be seasoned for all of the guests meals were as I had expected. And they were!
At the end of the evening the staff had cleared off all of the tables and boxed all of the items that were taking back with us. Although I had put a family member in charge of this, it was nice to know it had already been done.

The Colony Club is a beautifully restored building perfect for a wedding and the staff is fantastic!

The staff was always there to answer our questions and did a wonderful job accommodating our needs and requests! The food was wonderful and the staff was very attentive to our guests' needs! Judy and Bertha, the banquet managers, were such sweethearts and made sure our wedding was stress-free and took care of everything!

This is the most amazing venue you could possibly have your wedding at. Nicole was absolutely amazing in answering all questions promptly. Besides the obvious beauty of this location the food and staff were equally awesome. I could not say enough wonderful things about the Colony Club.

My husband and I held our wedding reception at the Colony Club on October 14, 2011! It was absolutely the perfect reception venue! The Colony Club is gorgeous. The staff are friendly, professional & responsive. They allowed us to have bubble tea at our cocktail hour. They allowed me to come in a day early to set up some things for our picture table, etc. The food was fantastic! Couldn't have asked for a better venue. Thank you Nicole, Alison & everyone at the Colony Club!!

The Colony Club set the tone for the Detroit wedding I had envisioned. The building is an architectural gem that needs little to no extras when it comes to decor. We chose our date based solely upon their availability, so we put a lot of faith in the good reviews we had heard. With that being said, the service went above and beyond my expectations, from the day I booked it, until the last guest had left. I worked with Nicole, Allison, and Judy and they were amazing - they made sure that every detail was attended to in order to make sure the day was perfect for me and my husband. The food was incredible and I just couldn't be happier with the entire experience. My best advice would be to book early knowing that it will be entirely worth it!

Like the other reviews, I would definitely rate the Colony Club much higher than PW is letting me (10 out of 5 is more like it!)! They provide A+++++ service! All of the employees are very competent in what they do, even the fantastic doorman!!! I especially appreciated all of Nicole and Allison's help during our planning process!!! They were more than willing to help me with whatever I needed help with, and answered all the my questions in an extremely timely manner!!! I could not have asked for better service! Not only is the venue strikingly beautiful, but the food is AMAZING!!! And for the great price the Colony Club is in a league of its own! Our guests complemented us all night on how beautiful everything was and how amazing the food was (and the great bar selection!)! I could seriously go on for hours about the Colony Club! Thank you Colony Club for making our wedding the most memorable day of our lives! We could not be happier on how the day turned out!!!

The Colony Club was the most important aspect of our dream wedding day. The building itself has been restored to its former glory and is absolutely exquisite. The ballroom, mezzanine and lobbies are all so beautiful and really made our wedding unique and elegant. Nicole (who also does events for the Gem Theater) made all of our planning so easy and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The food (catering through the Century Grille) was so good we didn't stop hearing about it. But more so, the staff was amazing. Nicole and Dawn worked so hard the week leading up to the wedding and the day of that I never worried about things not working out. The wait staff was so attentive and made such a pleasant atmosphere. I can't forget Steve, the amazing coordinator, that helped us with our rehearsal and had our entire ceremony run as smoothly as a Broadway show (his specialty)! All in all our entire experience with the Colony Club far exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique place to get married in Downtown Detroit.

The Colony Club was absolutely amazing. When planning our wedding we looked at nearly every venue in Detroit. The moment we walked in, we knew it was THE PLACE!! The main ballroom is absolutely gorgeous and their new 4th floor space (where we had our ceremony) fits in great! I cannot say enough good things about the staff. The sales staff were so patient with (and quick to respond to) my millions of questions during the planning process. The staff the day of was on top of everything - it all came out perfectly! We did the grand package and the food turned out wonderful - definitely recommend those chicken wings for cocktail hour! Overall, the Colony Club helps make our day amazing.

We had our wedding at Colony Club on 4.28.12... from the moment the wedding party walked in the door we were welcomed by staff and escorted to the brides and grooms room which had champaign, wine and apps waiting (all before the 5:30 start time of cocktail hour). Both banquet managers made sure to check in with us during the night and we were confident that everything would go smoothly (which it did). Allison was great to work with in planning and made every accomodation possible to make sure we could see the venue again, and again, and again, as we planned for the big day. Two drawbacks we found: First, we paid for a meal for a guest who couldn't make it so during dinner I asked for it to be packaged to go, so we could enjoy later. This never happened. I'm not sure if I needed to ask earlier? Second, we paid for three bartenders (one on the mez which didn't get any traffic so he was closed down) however, instead of move him to the two bars in the ballroom they just dismissed him. Our drink lines got to be pretty long at one point - which was the number one thing we wanted to avoid - so after the groom requested twice they finally moved the 3rd bartender to help out with the other two bars. Yet, overall, we couldn't be happier with the Colony Club, it is beautiful, the food was great and the service is top-notch. Thanks to all who helped us execute a perfect day! :)

The colony club was awesome from start to finish with our wedding. Guests loved the food, service was great for both bridal party and guests and the venue is beautiful. They let us bring in our own pie and ice cream for dessert without charging extra (the pie was pre sliced).

The one draw back was we paid extra for an additional bar tender upstairs, even though we knew she wouldn't get as much traffic. We were concerned about the size of the downstairs bar with only one bar tender at each. Predictably, the upstairs bar was not as busy and the bar tender was not pleased to be up there. She was unfriendly toward guests as a result.

Up until the day after the ceremony/reception, everything was very good. The Colony Club is pricey but they did provide very good service. It is a beautiful venue, the food was very good, and the wait staff and staff in general did a very good job, up until the day after the wedding. BUT..at the end of the reception, we asked about the flowers..should we take them with us? We were prepared to do so and we asked the individual in charge of our wedding. They referred us to another individual; that person very clearly told us that the florist was going to be picking the arrangements up the next day, they would be held for her. So we assumed we could pick up the arrangements from the florist. Since the bride and groom spent the night in Detroit, they checked in the next day at the Colony Club to make sure the florist had picked up the arrangements. By 1:00 the next day, the Colony Club staff had THROWN AWAY all the floral arrangements, about $2,500 worth of flowers. The new bride and groom went to the dumpster and found them…they were stunned. Turns out the bride on the on the first floor requested her flowers be thrown away…certainly not what we had wanted. The Colony Club refused to take any responsibility, we were told they were "doing us a favor". After speaking with several staff, a call from the boss/owner was promised. He never called, we just received another email stating that the Colony Club wasn't responsible. So the moral of the story is…you can't believe what the Colony Club staff tells you. Better dig into the Wedding Book on the website, because that is what takes precedence. It would have been a great experience if the bride hadn't been crying at the dumpster the day after the wedding.

Just had my daughter's wedding reception at the Colony Club. When we visited in December, we were very impressed with the beauty of the facility and the professionalism of the staff. But the event was a disaster. How can you advertise that you can accommodate events of over 200 people, yet when 110 show up, the air conditioning just can't cope? It was only in the mid-80's, a very average summer day. The event was ruined because our guests melted in the bar area waiting for the dinner to start, and the ballroom was not much better. Apparently the wonderful chef who sold my daughter on the place didn't show up, so the fillets were over-cooked. The staff was very apologetic, but couldn't fix it. Any place with working air conditioning would have been better, and most places were half the price. Don't consider the Colony Club for a summer wedding.
