The ballroom/foyer/ cocktail area was an amazing place for our daughter Katie and her husband Ian to have their wedding. The wedding planner Candice really was so helpful and attentive with all the details. Our guests loved the delicious prime rib, and the late night hot dog station. Everything was done to the specifications we had discussed and planned for.I am so happy with the wedding reception and Kensington Court Hotel helped us give Katie and Ian their fairy tale wedding reception.

The food was fabulous and they even provided extra too. They went out of their way to help us set up the favors and other decorations - even doing some of the work for us, as we dropped things off a few days before. Everything was on-time and professional.
We could have not been more pleased!

We had a wonderful experience with Kensington Court for our reception venue. We had our reception in the Grand Ballroom, which looked just lovely for a reception. There are old paintings, old woodwork, and has a very elegant, vintage feeling. The food we chose was delicious and we got many compliments about the whole event. The banquet staff was excellent and very accommodating. The Banquet Manager took care of everything the night of the reception and we had the most wonderful wedding. It was also great that our guests were able to stay at the hotel after the wedding. They also set up for us to hold a small breakfast the next morning for guests that stayed the night. We had a great experience working with Kensington Court.

Overall it was amazing. A few negative comments though..
1. The colored sashes were never written down or ordered, so we had white chair covers with no sashes.
2. Kelly was great, just seemed really unorganized. (Our contract was originally sent to us with half of someone else's wedding details)
3. We were supposed to have drinks & appetizers in the bridal salon during the cocktail hour and instead our bridal party was fetching drinks for us.
4. The lady at the front desk in the evening was so rude to us it blew my mind. She was short, annoyed, and just plain rude to us. My cake lady dropped off a bottle of wine & a cake for us to eat and they actually made us carry it all down to our room instead of having it chilled on ice for us when the reception finished.
5. The pizza we ordered for ourselves, for after the reception was stone cold when we arrive to our room at midnight.

We used the Grand Ballroom at Kensington Court for our reception. We had close to 300 guests and there was plenty of room for everyone. I knew the first time that I saw the ballroom that it was where I wanted the reception to be held. The staff was amazing, very responsive and flexible. Kelly Knox was able to meet with us whenever we wanted, even if it meant working late. The hall provided all of the table cloths, napkins, place settings, and center pieces. I felt in complete control when decided how I want the hall to look on our wedding night. We didn't have to worry about anything the day/night of the wedding. The hall looked beautiful when guests arrived and the staff took care of everything that night, they even loaded the gifts into my parents' car! We loved Kensington Court!!!

We have had an amazing experience working with Kensington Court Hotel. We booked with the hotel for both the ceremony and reception. Not only is their wedding package VERY reasonably priced, but the staff go over and above what was stipulated in the contract. Most notably on our wedding day we asked them for some assistance and accessories to compliment our decor and they obliged us instantly. I noiced many other details our wedding coordinator arranged without us even requesting them. To say the least, the service was top notch on many levels. I can honestly say I had a very relaxed and stress-free wedding day thanks to the attentive and skilled staff. The only areas of improvement had to do with responding to our emails a little more quickly (though we sent many at the very peak of wedding season) and there was a slight miscommunication between ourselves and the service staff about the reception schedule which might have been handled with a little more professionalism. Overall, I would highly recommend this venue to future brides and grooms. It was a pleasure sharing our wedding celebration with them.

My husband and I used the Kensington Court for our reception only. And since we had a small wedding (70 guests), the Kensington had the right room for us ... and everything was perfect! The food was excellent, the service was lovely and everyone was extremely helpful.

One thing that my husband and I liked the best was the packaged plated dinners, which included the bar. He and I paid for the wedding ourselves and having the bar/drinks included was a huge weight off our shoulders. Typically, a separate bar bill can be quite expensive. Anyhow, the bar was limited, but that didn't matter at all. Everyone had a blast and the overall price was affordable and easy.

While we were ultimately happy with the actual reception (which was all that took place here), the lead-up to the wedding and all of the planning were nightmares. The hotel's liaison/coordinator didn't respond to my emails or phone calls, reneged on things she promised to help with before we booked the venue, and made me feel as though she couldn't care less about planning my wedding reception. Before she had our credit card number, she bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule to view the hotel and talk about our options. Once we signed the contract, she did nothing but the bare minimum. Again, the actual reception was very nice, and the food was quite good, but to me, it wasn't worth the hassle getting there. I didn't need the extra stress; wedding planning is hard enough when everything goes well.
