My wife and I recently got married at this hotel in June, 2015. We hosted a mid-sized (about 70 people) wedding ceremony and reception. To make it short, we had a highly positive experience working with Garden Court Hotel. Kelly was our event manager. From the beginning of the planning to the actual wedding date, our impression of Kelly was professional, experienced, friendly, and meticulous. She worked with us very efficiently to get all the details right. Often times she made great suggestions which we took and ultimately made the event felt more complete to us. On the wedding date, pretty much all the important things went as planned and we were able to relax and enjoy as much as we could, thanks to the organized efforts of GCH. We were happy with our decision to go with this venue and would recommend it to our friends. Garden Court Hotel is an exceptional venue with excellent service for a very reasonable price.

We had our rehearsal dinner at the Garden Court and had our close family and bridal party stay at the hotel as well. The property itself is beautiful, all of the rooms were luxuriously appointed, many with balconies overlooking their lovely courtyard. The dining room for our dinner had a balcony where we placed our bar, and they decorated the table tops with the linens of our choice and fresh flowers (which we had not ordered - that was a pleasant surprise). The staff was incredibly professional, from the front desk to the waiters, bartender, cleaning staff - and most of all the coordinator Kelly, who took care of us from beginning to end. Their menu options for the dinner were much more unique than what we expected from a caterer, they have a great wine list, and everything turned out delicious (we got lots of compliments from our guests). They were also very accommodating of guests with special dietary needs and even a last-minute addition. They also upgraded our room and surprised us with a heart made of rose petals outside our door on our wedding night. So many nice touches like that made it an absolute pleasure to work with them.

You will love this place!
The pictures will come out picture perfect. You will look like you've wed in some where in Europe. Their beautiful building will enhance your picture quality. All my friends, colleagues and families loved our wedding picture. They were surprised to find out it's Palo Alto, CA!
You will have the most responsible and professional people for your wedding.
I highly recommanded for you to try their lobby reception.
You willl not only will meet their charming event managers but you will get to try their award winning food and wine selection.
The menu and wine selection changes every week and you can request the food you like in advance. And you will have the most helpful attentive server you will ever meet "Victor"! All other servers and managers doing their best for smooth operation and serve your guests, Victor will make sure you get treated well. He will take good care of you.
And your event managers are available by phone or email. They will work with you and will do all their best to make your day the happiest day of your life.
They sure did for mind! Thank you Kelly ( who left GCH), Jesse, Jennifer and Vitor! Million thanks!!

Kelly, the event manager at Garden Court Hotel, was wonderful to work with. She was always prompt and extremely thorough and helpful. Her responsiveness was impressive and she helped the wedding day run smoothly. Thank you SO MUCH KELLY! You were awesome and we were so lucky to have worked with you!

Not only was the venue beautiful and the perfect spot for our intimate reception, but the quality of service provided at the Garden Court Hotel was impeccable and outstanding. From the day we arrived at the hotel for the wedding weekend until the very last hour of our stay, we were very well taken care of and the service was truly sincere and above and beyond anything we have ever experienced at a hotel. We felt like the entire staff in the hotel knew who we were and made sure we were comfortable and happy.

Thank you, Garden Court Hotel, for truly exceeding our expectations and providing not only a beautiful venue for our wedding but great service to us and all of our guests!!

We loved working with Kelly (the event manager), she was very friendly and professional, responded to all of our questions and concerns in a timely manner. She went over the colors of the linens in details with us, and the menu options. I really appreciated her patience and positive attitude. Great venue, great staff, great food :)

I just had my wedding at the Garden Court Hotel and I could not have wished for a better day or location. I had one month to plan my wedding so you can imagine the pressure and the work that I was up against. However, through it all I never felt stressed or overwhelmed when planning my wedding.
Kelly Tsutsumi was such a gem and was amazing in our planning process. She was so accomidating and was on the ball with everything. Always answering my endless questions and making sure we did not go over budget. No detail was over looked and she was there every step of the way making sure our wedding went smoothly and the way we wanted.
We had our ceremony and reception at the Garden Court Hotel and the way the staff accomidated our guest while setting the room up was ideal. Our guest never felt like they were being pushed around. Everyone was relaxed, comfortable and most importantly happy.
The banquet manager (shoot forgot his name) did a fab job in running the show. Asking about the speeches, the dances and the cake cutting. Kept us on track which was needed!! He always made sure everything was ok and if he could do anything more for us.
The staff was so friendly and accomidating to all our guests!
Our guest are still talking about our wedding and how perfect the venue was. My husband and I could not be happier! I would HIGHLY recommend you having your wedding at the Garden Cout Hotel!
