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 was our main hotel for our guests to stay at for our wedding. The bridal suite was gorgeous and perfect for having the bridal party get their hair and makeup done. The hotel staff was extremely attentive to all our needs. Marie and Rachel were instrumental in setting up our wedding block and accommodating as many guests as were possible.

There are not enough words to express how happy we were with our recent wedding reception at The Desmond Hotel. To start, this was the first place we looked at for our reception. And after visiting a few other venues there was nothing comparable to what the Desmond had to offer in their wedding packages. Everything from centerpieces, cake, table linens, etc. were included. Of course there were charges if you wanted additional upgrades but with what they offered those upgrades were few and far between. When we went for our tasting, we were treated like royalty. You would have thought it was our actual wedding day. We tried so many foods and were given so many options. If we didn't like something foodwise, they quickly accomendated us with something else that we did like. We worked with Kevin and he made the planning process so simple. I never had to worry about anything. Once our wedding day came, we dealth with Andy at the reception. Another person we couldn't have enjoyed our day without. The food was phenomenal and the service was excellent. We hosted 200+ guests and everyone raved about all aspects of our reception. From the reception to our post wedding brunch to our hotel stay it was awesome. The only thing I would complain about is how fast the whole night went by but it was truly beyond all of our dreams.

My daughter had her dream wedding at The Desmond Hotel & Conference Center in Malvern. Their staff was fantastic to work with and helped so much with the reception planning experience. We also had the rehearsal dinner and next day morning brunch there. The ballroom was decorated elegantly, the Conservatory and adjoining ballroom were great for the cocktail hour, the food was excellent. Everything went off perfectly. Our guests, and we had a lot of out- of- towners, were extremely impressed.

No matter where you have a wedding these days, you’ll spend a good deal of money. But the real value of the Desmond goes far beyond any dollar amount spent there. My husband and I have been to the Desmond countless times and we had always considered it for our own nuptials. Taking a risk, we asked about having the reception on the deck instead of the traditional ballroom. To our great surprise and happiness, we were offered the space and were introduced to the phenomenal service that we now know is just the Desmond standard.

Out of all the venues we visited, only the Desmond actually asked us what we really wanted. At no time did they just try to fit us into what “normally happens.” Instead, they listened to things we envisioned and things we wanted to avoid, and did their best to make all of those imaginings possibilities. All of the staff we dealt with was knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely welcoming. Especially as stressful as weddings can be, they consistently make you feel comfortable and confident.

They truly understand that this day isn’t about them and that they are working to make it your own. To that end, the staff can accommodate any style of couple and any planning style. For us, a more laid-back planning couple, we were seeking a place where we could trust the staff to make some of the decisions for us, a place we knew we didn’t need attend to the minutiae as it would be done impeccably anyway. When we had specific directions, the Desmond followed our thoughts and lived up to their promises. (For example, unique, fun, delicious food designed at a meeting with the Chef!) For the things we were unsure of, they led us to a good place. (Can you set up the guest book/table number area? YES! says the Desmond, and man, it looked great.)

The best example of this was their commitment to realizing our vision for the awning. As it is, the outdoor deck and awning are very beautiful. But, we wanted to add something to bring out our theme

So many of our guests called my parents or told my husband and me what a spectacular wedding we had and we owe most of it to the Desmond. Kevin was amazing throughout the whole planning process and whenever I felt the need to stress out, he immediately calmed me down and answered my lists of questions quickly and easily. The food was terrific and there was so much of it. The dessert table was exquisite. The staff was wonderful to all the guests and treated the bridal party and our parents' tables like royalty. We have been to so many weddings where the meal drags on cuts into the party time; the staff at the Desmond kept things moving so we could get the party started on the dance floor. I have absolutely no complaints about the Desmond and only hope to be invited to a wedding there, so I can be a guest and not the host this time!
