We held our rehearsal dinner, welcome party the night before our wedding, and a post-wedding Sunday brunch at Sentinel. We had the pleasure of working with Kate to tour the spaces and plan out the events well in advance. She was always professional and quick to respond to us. The event spaces (Renaissance Room and Library Room) were beautiful and set up just how we wanted them. The food and drinks were excellent, and the servers were attentive to our guests' needs.
Additionally, we had a block of rooms for our out of town guests at Sentinel and we worked with Lauren to arrange those. She and her team were also incredibly responsive to our needs, and regularly sent updated lists to us in the weeks leading up to the wedding of which guests had reserved rooms and when they were to be checking in. The rooms were great, the front desk staff went above and beyond to be helpful, and even the valet service was excellent. Our guests loved their stays, and we enjoyed a city terrace suite for ourselves also. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. (In particular, I found this to be a much, much better experience than a good friend of mine recently had for her wedding at The Nines.)

Other than slow responses while planning, everything went great. The day of staff was amazing and the bartender was hilarious! The head server managed the day of catering and she was on top of everything. I was very impressed with the quality of service we received on the wedding day. We are still hearing about how much everyone enjoyed the food and how much fun Lonnie (the bartender) was.

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at The Governor - Stephanie and Erin at Jake's were a pleasure to work with. Always on top of it, they had it covered. The food was fabulous, the rooms are gorgeous, and the hotel and Jake's were both always quick to respond to any questions I had. They had SIX weddings, yes you read that right SIX, the weekend I got married. Three were happening simultaneously on my wedding day. Were there hiccups? Delays? A drop in service? Nope. Nope. Nope! Total professionals, they know what they are doing and they do it well. Many many thanks to all of the staff at Jake's and The Governor for a fabulous weekend

The Governor was the perfect venue for our reception. The Heritage Ballroom, though huge, warmed up beautifully with the lighting and flowers. Jake's Catering provided a delicious menu that we selected through a preview tasting. The chef was excellent when it came to food requests and slight changes. The set-up was flawless and the staff was wonderful regarding service and looking for lost items.

The venue was great. The catering staff was wonderful, on the spot and very helpful. The only negative I really could say was that they were used to doing things the way they always do. And if your creative, its hard to get them to set up anything out of the box.

Everything went well. I would suggest doing a sit down plated versus buffet style for anything over 100 guests.

Linda was AWESOME! She went above and beyond to make our wedding a wonderful experience. She was both personal and professional and was able to turn a stressful experience into something fun. I would highly recommend holding any event at the Governor Hotel. With Linda’s expertise and friendly spirit you can’t go wrong.

Aside from a gorgeous ballroom, dealing with the Governor Hotel and Jake's Catering was a complete disaster on every possible front during the planning phase. Unforunately, clients are required to use Jake's at the Governor. Jake's is the furtherst away from accommodating on simple things like meetings and important things like the tasting- we came for a meeting and they had prepared some choices based on their preference. When we asked if we could try some alternatives, they said they were not available until we coincidentally saw the Chef who was actually quite helpful. With that said, the food and service on the wedding day was great.
The service at the Governor Hotel is also terrible- thankfully they were bought out and a makeover to their attitudes is underway.

I was so happy with my service. Their event coordinator Stephanie was like a good friend, so easy to be with and so willing to help and advise. She always believed in the wedding vision (it was a bit unusual) and was someone I could count on to be calm, think of solutions and run things as much or as little as I wanted.

The venue itself is stunning--I got married in the Heritage Ballroom. Jake's food and catering were also excellent, and the staff were friendly, smooth and flawless. I hardly knew they were there.

We had a tiny bit of trouble with the rehearsal. Just be sure if you aren't using a different room for the ceremony than for the reception that you work that out in your contract or with Stephanie well ahead of time. I wasn't quite on top of that and it caused some trouble for the rehearsal the day before, but Stephanie bent over backward to resolve it, and everything worked out well.

The wedding and reception were absolutely dreamlike and perfect. I couldn't recommend this venue more!
