Eileen was AMAZING! We met with her multiple times and she was so accommodating. She responded promptly to every email I sent her. Larissa, the bridal attendant, was also absolutely amazing. She was so helpful the day of the wedding and my husband and I were so happy to have her there to help us. We had our reception in the grand ballroom and all of our guests seemed very happy at the wedding. It was set up beautifully and Eileen did everything we wanted and then some. Our room was set up so beautifully, including some bouquets and centerpieces. All of our guests who stayed there were so happy with their rooms and how comfortable their beds were! We are so happy we had our reception there!

Our daughter was married on 9/26/15. From day one of planning, this has been an absolute pleasure! The entire staff is professional and cooperative. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the wedding reception. The cocktail hour was absolutely gorgeous...over the top even! The dinner was truly delicious. The service was perfection. Eileen Whitney really understands what it takes to make an event for 220 people successful. We used every vendor she recommended from photographer to cake...oh the cake! It was amazing. Don't go crazy looking for these vendors. TRUST EILEEN!
Many of our guests were from Long Island and New Jersey - the wedding capitals of America! They were blown away by how wonderful this wedding was.
Our out of town guests all stayed at the hotel and were very happy with the accommodations. And of course, brunch the next day was perfect too!
I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend the Ethan Allen for weddings.

(I couldn't fit it all in one review!)
I would like to take a moment to commend the hotel staff. My husband’s family had a terrible time traveling. They were supposed to arrive on the Thursday before our Saturday wedding, but United put them on a flight to DC instead of NY; then they were told they had to stay overnight and fly to NY Friday morning (so they booked four hotel rooms); then United cancelled the morning flight to NY. The party of 7 (including two elderly grandparents) drove through the night to CT so they would make it to our rehearsal dinner (they were charged for the hotel rooms in DC); they made it to the hotel around 7:30 on Friday. When we saw them, they made a point to tell us how wonderful the hotel staff was to them – they insisted that they would NOT be charged for ANY of the rooms that they had booked for the night before that they didn’t use! We also had to book a couple at the last minute for some other guests and they were so gracious and helpful about it all. I even forgot to grab our wedding cake out of our hotel fridge, so they got it for me and stored it in the restaurant fridge until we could go back and get it.

I did my own flowers and had a lot leftover... I told Eileen that they were going to be delivered with the rest of the flowers and that, if they wanted to, they could use the extra flowers to decorate however they wanted. You just don’t know how incredible Eileen is – she took all the extra flowers, TRIMMED THEM (!), put them in vases, and placed them all around the lobby for our cocktail hour. I never would have expected anyone to have made such an effort, but Eileen did. That is just the kind of person she is. She is amazing at what she does and the people she has working for her are just as awesome. When it came time to select our wedding cake, she told me that she had to go down to the bakery that they use and that she would bring some cake back for me – she brought us four cakes (not four slices – four WHOLE cakes!).

I can't believe it's almost been a month since our wedding and people are still talking about what an amazing time they had - how beautiful the hotel was, how delicious the food was, how friendly the staff was, etc. We are so happy that we chose the Ethan Allen for our venue - Eileen was the best - always responsive, helpful, patient with our million questions and ideas...she made sure that we had the wedding of our dreams no matter what and always made sure that we were happy with everything, no matter what 'crisis' came up. She was able to fix everything! I don't think I would have made it through all of the wedding planning craziness without her! The staff at the hotel did an amazing job - all of the food was delicious (especially the mashed potato bar!) and the ballroom looked incredible. Everyone says it was the best wedding they've ever been too! I'd absolutely recommend them to anyone!

We absolutely LOVED our wedding at The Ethan Allen Hotel. We cannot say anything negative about them! The hotel is gorgeous and was renovated just in time for our event. Eileen Piccolo is amazing and went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was perfect. She is a "roll up your sleeves and get it done" kid of woman, she's down to Earth, she's funny - she's great! Her work ethic rubs off on her staff as well! We appreciate everything that was done for us - even down to the little things. When the night was over, we went to our beautiful and recently renovated suite and the staff set up our room so nicely. Slices of our cake, sandwiches, our drinks of choice, flower petals, a box with everything that we brought (cake cutter/server, cake topper, unity candles, etc.) neatly packed up so we did not have to worry about it the next morning. When you walk into the hotel and meet Eileen and her staff, you feel welcome and at home. That's something that you do not get today when looking for a venue to hold your special day at. We highly recommend The Ethan Allen Hotel to anyone and everyone!

A very nice stay for our guests. Another wedding (or two?) were also staying at the hotel on our wedding weekend. "Welcome bags" were given to guests of the wrong weddings...but that was the only hotel-controllable snafu.

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and they allowed us to custom design almost every part of our wedding. They really catered to our needs even allowing me to have sparkling water rather than champagne and decaffinated coffee. It is a beautiful place to have the ceremony and reception. The outdoor courthyard is preferrable, weather permitted. There isn't a lot of scenary for pictures however during inclimate weather.

Ethan Allen made our day feel very special. The coordinator was in touch with us all day till the end of the night. They have a large selection of food for the cocktail hour for any budget. Everyone at the wedding raved about the food. Our ceremony was at the hotel as well. It rained that morning and we were scheduled to have it outside but not to worry they moved it inside and the room was wonderfully decorated. I was very pleased. At then end of our wedding night when my husband and I got to our hotel room when we opened the door we were surprised by the rose petals that decorated the floor and lead to the dresser where the rose petals continued along with 2 slices of our wedding cake and a bottle of champagne. That was a nice touch....
