No review that I write will convey just how awesome Park Plaza was for our wedding, but I’ll try. 1) Jodi, the catering manager, was a gem to work with. She made all of the planning so easy, and was there on the actual day to oversee everything. I had initially planned on setting a lot of things up the night before, but at the last minute, something happened and we couldn’t get into the ballroom that night. The wedding party was obviously going to be busy the next day, so I was freaking out about how it would all get done. Jodi said no problem and took care of everything. I was a little nervous leaving everything with her, but she did an amazing job.…and they didn’t charge us any extra setup fees either, which I was kind of worried they might! 2) The staff. Wow. The servers were so professional and efficient. They kept everything running smoothly. The manager (I wish I knew his name) came up to my husband and me several times during the night to check in, making sure everything was okay, kept congratulating us, etc. It was so nice and appreciated. We felt like they genuinely wanted to take good care of us. Another nice touch was that they saved a tray of the appetizers from cocktail hour for the head table, since we had been off-site taking pictures. I was so grateful and happy to get to try everything! 3) The food was absolutely out of this world. Chef Andrew is fantastic. You never know how hotel food is going to be, but I am not exaggerating when I say that every guest told us how delicious the food was. In particular, the people that had the filet mignon said it was the best they have ever had anywhere. The late night snacks were also a big hit. I remember saying goodbye to some people during the night, only to find them still there two hours later, because they found the late night snacks and coffee station and ended up staying longer! Park Plaza could not have been any better and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a venue.

We started out working with Lindsay R at the Park Plaza. She was very professional, thorough and responsive to all my calls/emails. We worked with her with no issue from Aug 2013 to May 2014. Then, Lindsay left to work with another venue and was replaced by Jodi T.

There was a short transisition period when we met with Lindsay and a hotel manager to do a transfer of information, prior to meeting with Jodi. This also happened to push back out tasting timeline, but all is well that ends well, and it did, so no real complaint here.

While Jodi was not nearly as responsive to our requests for feedback (via email/phone), she did get all of our questions answered.

There was some slight discrepancies with our contract with Lindsay and with how the staff at the Park Plaza read it, but in the end, this too was resolved. (specifically time lines and room rates/breakfast vouchers)

Finally, I'd paid extra to have some special wall draping placed in our ceremony space and the night before the wedding...it looked like only 3 of the 4 walls were going to be completed....I was told "It takes 2 hours to move the draping, so we just can't do it". Well, the morning of the wedding, all 4 walls were draped, and afterwards, it only took them about 30 min to move everything....so not sure where all the mis-communication or confusion was.

In general, I think the staff and everyone at the Park Plaza did a great job. I feel that most of the issues we ran into, probably had to do with the change over from Lindsay to Jodi.

The venue looked great! I'd recommend the wall draping package to any future bride...it really transforms the ballroom into something special!

I don't even know where to start with my compliments for Lindsay and Park Plaza. Planning and working with Lindsay was super easy during the whole process, she is very quick to respond to emails and is always on top of things. Everything for our reception went 100% as planned and the room looked absolutely gorgeous. We had the fairytale package with purple uplighting and then Lindsay worked with another vendor (Mani Mela) to get us a dozen crystal chandeliers that made the room look just perfect. We had so many compliments on our reception decor. The food and service was also wonderful. People raved about all the food we selected- appetizers of spinach feta triangles, chicken satays, and the cheese/cracker platter, the sliced sirloin of beef, chicken marsala, butternut squash ravioli, and of course the late night bites of pizza and the ball park package were a total hit. Lindsay made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be and we have no complaints. She is very on top of new trends and creative ideas, and made our wedding reception perfect.

We booked our wedding reception 14 months before our wedding then added our rehearsal dinner to the same place. Everything was seemed to be set until the final two weeks. After we paid our final bill we were emailed and told the coordinator would not be available the day of the wedding after working with her the entire time and she handed it off to someone else whom we had never met. We were originally told we would be able to get in and start set up the night before after the rehearsal dinner then were told they booked an event in our room the night before until 11PM. On the morning of the wedding we got a call that the room was ready for us to come start setting up and when we got there none of the tables were ready. How can you set center pieces without table cloths or mirrors?? Everything ended up gorgeous but it was because of the help from 14 of my sorority sisters who stayed behind and started pushing the staff when I needed to get ready. The food was wonderful and the staff working the event was great but being handed off and having to ride people the day of my wedding is not what I had in mind.

We were working with a pretty tight budget that limited our options for Reception locations. The Park Plaza's original minimums were a little over our price range but Lindsay, the catering manager, was willing to work with us to create a custom menu for the event that was in our budget. She was also able to accommodate our requests for Hosted Sodas and drinks at the bar. The ballroom space was big enough to accommodate our larger guest list very comfortably and we were able to tailor the room set-up to our needs (I wanted a harvest-style head table instead of the traditional head table). The catering staff also offered to set up our table decorations for us so we didn't have to worry about that day-of the wedding. We received several rave reviews about the food and the service from our guests at the reception. Our servers anticipated our needs and were easily able to answer our questions and help move the event along very seamlessly. Another nice addition to the service was cake cutting and service at no additional charge, even though we brought our own cakes and did not use their vendor. Overall, we loved the service, venue and the pricing and the other additional services we received (free room the night of the wedding, late night snacks) and would recommend the Park Plaza - Bloomington to our friends and family. The only thing worth mentioning that we were not thrilled with is that sometimes the catering manager was a little slow to respond to our calls or emails which can be a little nerve-racking when you are on a tight schedule and trying to plan a wedding.
