Make a grand entrance on the cascading staircase at this made-for-events facility north of Boston. The lounge, used for the cocktail hour, has dramatic steps that spiral down in front of a floor-to-ceiling window, and there's also an oak piano and bamboo floors. Just off the piano lounge is the West Indies-themed Grande Ballroom, with a covered outdoor terrace that can accommodate a beautiful cocktail hour location. The executive chef will prepare a menu based on the selected wedding package (there are three packaged options with a number of Entree selections)—or he'll customize one for you! Read less

Devens Common Center exceeded my expectations for our ceremony and wedding reception. When we began looking at vendors a year prior to our wedding, I had my heart set on a rustic chic venue. I quickly realized my vision would need to change because those venues were way too expensive for our budget. Prior to looking at Devens Common Center, I was concerned it would look too much like a conference space, but the ballroom is huge, and transforms wonderfully from ceremony to reception. I also loved the convenience of it being attached to a hotel because we had a number of out-of-town guests in attendance. The food service was perfectly executed and the food was delicious! Many of our guests complimented us on the food. I was really impressed by it the day of because it was even better than it was at the tasting. I highly recommend if you're looking for a beautiful, cost-friendly location with excellent food and service. The 3.5 rating on responsiveness is related to emails only, as the wedding coordinator/sales manager can sometimes be slow to respond. On the day of the wedding, she was extremely attentive.

Overall, everything went well but some of the behind the scenes details were lost in the craziness. I didn't realize that the coordinator would be leaving after dinner and handing the night off to an assistant--or I wouldn't have given her a large tip ahead of time! Also, there was some miscommunications about set-up time which left my coordinator scrambling causing some items to be left undone!

Food was great! Staff (mostly) was very helpful and accommodating to allergies/special needs!

The Devens Common Center is a beautiful venue if you are looking for a ballroom set-up. The room is decorated in subtle golds and taupes that mesh well with any decor you choose, and the dance floor is huge! I sincerely appreciate the help that Kerri, Jen and others gave me to organize my day, and everyone had an amazing time.

The only glitch in the day was with the gluten free meals, but the kitchen was quick to accomodate my guests. I also found the Devens Common Center was slightly more expensive than the other venues I looked at, but worth it in the end because of the flexibility with their packages.

From beginning to end, my husband and I both felt everything was executed to perfection. Our guests had an amazing time, and we keep hearing how everything was beautiful, the food delicious, and how they had such a great time. Devens was so easy to work with, they were very responsive, and met all our needs. We couldn't have been happier with the venue, the service, and the professionalism!

We held our ceremony outside of the site. The staff was very accommodating, helping to create the vision we had of the layout. Hot hors d'ourves were then passed both out and inside during the cocktail hour. Both the hotel and Common Center are new - about two years old. The reception ballroom is warm and elegant and clean, with a very large dance floor (we had 250 guests and it was more than comfortable). The food was delicious - beautiful presentation and a scrumptious meal. We found that for us, this was also the best deal - meal prices were not only competitive, they beat out other local vendors we looked at. We wanted a venue that had hotel accommodations VERY close. Spring Hill Suites by Marriott (attached to the reception site) had gorgeous rooms and met our needs. My one complaint would be that the communication between the hotel and the common center could have been better.
