I wanted to book with this venue. This was my #1 pick! I was able to schedule an appointment to view the facility (after several messages and back and forth) only for them not to show up for the appointment! I left several
messages waiting on them and still have not received a phone call back! It has been two weeks since my appointment! I would not recommend them at all.

I wanted this venue so bad but no one ever answered the PHONE or returned calls or emails! I called for a month straight NO ANSWER! I even went to the facility being that I was told they were open 6 days a week and you all should be able to guess what happened by now. No one was their and this was on a Wednesday around 3pm. I just finally gave up and I am high disappointed!

Suite 300 was a gorgeous venue! It helped make our vision for our wedding come to life. However, they could work on responding to clients in a more timely fashion. Mindy was the absolute best!!!

I married the man of my dreams on July 2, 2016. Our ceremony was actually at Suite 300, along with our cocktail hour. The reception was upstairs at Kress Terrace. Kristen was our manager on duty the night of the wedding. At the rehearsal the night before, the manager gave us a "plan B" in case it rained on our wedding. Luckily, the weather was perfect. From the minute we walked through the door until the minute we left our entire wedding g. night was perfect!
Kristen and her staff really catered to us. We paid for open bar for our guests, and my husband and I never had to go to the bar while we
ate because they served us our dinks. We requested certain drinks for the night of our wedding (crown XR and Moscato) and they were there for us.
I read another review about the "preferred DJ" not being good.... As a bride I took it upon myself to find my own DJ.... And you should too. It's called doing your homework.
We had a free "candy bar" because we paid cash in advance. Our guests really loved filling their souvenir cups with candy to bring outside on the dance floor. The communication during our event was phenomenal. Thank you Kristen and the rest of the staff!!

Air conditioning didn't work the day before the wedding. Nothing done to fix it. It was nearly 90 degrees for my daughters wedding, inside. Thankfully, two of four doors were opened to let the heat in to cool the place off.
$3500.00 put down to reserve venue. Had to fight tooth and nail to get owner to respond to my daughter and her fiancé until it was time to pay the balance.
Could only use one caterer. That was owners sister. Wait staff left from heat exhaustion before the event began. Catering owner served nearly 70 people in her dirty black street pants and dirty old t-shirt. Her children brought out one plate at a time for her to serve. The children cleared the tables.The prime rib was like steak 'um without flavor.
The bride and groom had to cut the cake before dinner was served because it was melting. The cake was left on one table for guests to help themselves to.
The preferred DJ was to announce the transitions to the wedding. He didn't and he forgot his speakers.
Oh! Did I mention we were informed that the caterer told me that she had the air conditioning running since 10 a.m. and had just called the HVAC people at 4:30 p.m. Our event started at 5:00 p.m. We had been told the day before that it would be fixed and there were no worries.
One last note: I went with my daughter to the "W", the venue owners new restaurant, about a week after the $3500.00 was made. The owner never even acknowledged her. My daughter and her fiancé had to pay all monies before the event.
Advice! If you can only use one caterer and if the venue owner is charming until you are locked into her venue with a large deposit - RUN!!!! Forget the deposit. Just RUN!!!!

So we actually got married at Suite 300. It is on one of the lower levels of the Kress Building, but it is all run by the same group of people. It is a beautiful venue and I really did love the space, but I didn't have the greatest experience dealing with the managers. I had to call them several times as they kept messing up our montly payment plan, and a few times when I showed up for appointments to work on my wedding colors or floor plan, I had to wait a long time before anyone helped me. This was especially true the night of my rehersal. We were told that we would receive a day of "wedding coordinator," who was not present at the rehersal. So the night before the wedding, there was no one there helpding us. I ended up getting a really good price for the venue as we booked it while it was still be renovated, so I feel I got "what I paid for," but I would have been pretty upset if I had spent a ton more on the venue as the service just was not good at times.

This was a stress free wedding reception, thanks to the WONDERFUL staff at Kress Terrace. The food was delicious, the decorations were amazing and matched our 'idea' of this party 100% and then some!! We didn't luck out on the weather and had to move our dance floor indoors, but we knew that was a gamble with a late March event. It's been a month and people are STILL talking about how much fun we all had. Great company - AWESOME RECEPTION! Thank you all so much!!
