We had an absolutely beautiful wedding reception at the Holiday Inn at Lido Beach. Most importantly was Sonja Newton. She was our champion for our wedding reception and it was all we could ever ask for. She was extremely helpful, accommodating and the sweetest person. There is not one negative thing I could say about our reception. Very pleased and we hope to have another event here in the near future. It was a picture perfect wedding reception.

We held our wedding rehearsal luncheon in the 7th floor restaurant for our son and our future daughter-in-law and 75 guests. Sonja was wonderful in helping us plan the event and offering suggestions when I needed help with some of the details. Since the bride's family is from a Spanish speaking country and did not speak much English, Sonja made sure we had wait staff who also spoke Spanish. They were courteous, attentive and very helpful and always had a smile on their face. The luncheon was a success and everyone had a wonderful time. The view was great, the food superb and the desserts outstanding! Our guests who stayed at the hotel were very impressed and had all good things to say about the rooms and service. Thank you all for helping make this such a happy time!

I just had my reception here on the 7th floor Sarasota Room. Sonja is amazing, not only did she help set up my entire reception she also went out of her way during my hair crisis to find me a stylist. Wonderful lady to work with and really puts in a effort to ensure your day is perfect. I highly recommend Sonja as your coordinator for a wedding. She really helped me so much and so greatful I had used her and the Holiday Inn.
