I couldn't have been happier with our service and reception at the Gateway. Heather was a dream to work with and had lots of great ideas whenever we were in a bind. The day-of was very smooth and we had nothing but excellent comments from guests. You'll pay an arm and a leg for this venue but it is 100% worth it. I would have a reception here again in a heart-beat.

The room looked beautiful. The food was awesome. Many enjoyed the nacho bar served later in the evening. All was set up ahead of schedule and ready to go on time.
Our only complain t is were disappointed that they went down to only one bar so early in the evening and the one bar was a long wait. We heard this complaint from several of our guests.

We couldn't be more pleased! Everyone at the hotel was a pleasure to work with! The food was fabulous and we have had many of our guests comment on that as well as how much they enjoyed the pasta bar! Jacque was wonderful to work with! She helped relieve some of the stress by helping with details and assuring us that she would be there to help the night of the reception! The night was wonderful and we appreciate everyone's effort at the hotel that made sure that it was!

The Gateway Hotel and Conference Center was a great place for my daughter's wedding reception. Loved having the hotel and event venue all in one place. The food was excellent. Working with Jacque Uthe, the wedding and social events coordinator, made planning a wedding very enjoyable. She responded to my emails, phone calls, and any questions immediately. She had great suggestions for us to get the most for our money. She keep my stress level at a minimum and stayed late the night of my daughter's wedding reception to make sure all went well, even though it was also her wedding anniversary. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly. She is amazing! We are glad we chose Gateway Hotel and Conference Center.
