Mary, Danielle, Luis and the entire rest of the staff are the best of the best! I have never experienced such wonderful service, friendly staff, great food....I could go on and on. All of the guests at our wedding are still talking about our wedding and can't say enough about the service and the food.......ah, the food! Almost everyone told us hands down best wedding ever!! You guys ROCK!!
I have to say I was a little hesitant because they went through some staff changes in the middle of our planning but I am so glad that Danielle came on board! She was more attentive, more excited and more helpful than any of the others up to that point! We also can't say enough about Mary or Luis! As I said they are the best of the best! Mary is kind and fun and gets things done! Luis is the most amazing server I have ever seen! He anticipated our needs just as we would think them! But he never hovered-in fact I was never really sure where he would come from-he would just magically appear! He was awesome!! And the entire rest of the staff-including housekeeping were the friendliest, most gracious hosts we have ever encountered. If you want the best wedding ever- book it at the Radisson! You will not be sorry!

I truly have nothing but wonderful things to say about having our wedding at the Radisson at Lackawanna Station. As a horrible party planner and a big procrastinator, I was mildly terrified about planning a wedding, but Cindy and the rest of the staff made it as close to effortless as possible. Cindy is amazingly organized and was on top of her game from start to finish. She brought so many things to my attention that I would have never even thought of and is also a really awesome person, which makes working with her a breeze. The wedding went by so quickly, but everything (the atmosphere, the food, the service) was great. I really have no complaints!

We could not be happier with how everything turned out for our wedding. Cindy, Mary, and the entire staff were amazing. Cindy was very accessible during the entire planning process. As for the actual reception, it was perfect. The food was AMAZING. My guests couldn't stop talking about how delicious it was. I didn't worry about anything all night. If we needed anything, the staff was waiting and ready to help. The Radisson is a beautiful venue with a wonderful staff, and the perfect place to have a wedding!

My wife started looking at venues as soon as we got engaged because we knew we wanted to get married within a year. She went to several places but as soona s she saw the Radisson we were done. She fell in love with the building and how everything looked. Luckily, our church and the Radisson both had the same date available so we booked it.
Working with the Staff a the Radisson was relaxed and easy. They were very organized and my wife had everything planned with little to no stress thanks to the woman who she met with several times (I'm sorry I don't remember her name...Cindy maybe?).
We did a food tasting with both sets of parents and tried 6 dishes. They wre outstanding. We ended up choosing the Chicken Milanese, Sliced Tenderloin, and Stuffed Flounder. Everyone told us how great the food was at our wedding. It was probably the best food I've ever had at a wedding.
We did the cocktail hour in the lobby which looks awesome. They removed some chairs we didn't like and adjusted lighting to match the color scheme of our wedding.
From the moment we walked in the day of our wedding, Mary and Louis (not sure of the spelling) were at hand to make sure we didn't need anything all night. If we were in the middle of the dance floor with an empty glass, they showed up with a fresh one. They took care of us really well that night and we appreciate it greatly.
All of our guests loved the building, the event, and the food. The Radisson is a great venue for the wedding and we can't say enough for the service we received.

Our entire experience at the Radisson at Lackawanna Station was incredible from start to finish. The Director of Sales Cindy was amazing and continually went above and beyond to make our special day so memorable. The entire team at the Radisson worked together to make sure every detail was correct and every special request was met. Even with last minute changes, the team flew into action and completed the change before you knew what happened. One of the best parts about the experience was that the time leading up to the big day was stress free. Everything we needed was given to us in a list with dates, Cindy was reachable at all times and our only concerns were with outside vendors.
On our big day everything went smoothly, the team fulfilled every need and expectation we had. Mary and Luis went above and beyond in the ballroom and made the day even more special. Everything was perfect and we had no complaints!

From the overall planning to the catering to the details they took care of for us, everything was perfect. We think we had the best wedding we've attended, and it was largely thanks to their work.

We visited this venue on a whim. I fell in love with the setting at first sight. When Cindy mentioned that we could have the wedding in either the spacious ballroom or in the lobby, I just knew that I was dying to have it in the lobby. It was a grand setting for the ceremony and it was hard for anyone to be late with the huge clock on the wall! We arrived on Thursday and were greeted by the wonderful concierge ladies, then we didn't have to drive anywhere until we went skiing at nearby Sno Mountain on Sunday. All the while I had complete faith and confidence that my dream wedding would be achieved. I got all of my work done by Friday (out of town guest bags, centerpieces, etc.) so that I was able to relax and not leave my parent's luxurious suite all day. The coordinators Cindy and Mary took care of the placement of the items that I brought in addition to the chairs, buffet, etc. They coordinated with my dessert table expert, and I didn't have to worry about a thing. In addition, my guests made good use of the lobby for entertainment, the lounge for drinks and meals etc. Everyone loved the accessibility. They were flexible with traditions old and new and they were "yes" people when so many others were saying "no". The food was awesome and the guests even made a point of telling me so.

Our wedding was amazing at the Lackawanna Station Hotel. Even though most of my planning was via email, every detail was perfect. Also, we had a lot of out of town guests who had never been to Scranton, and they were beyond impressed with the service and beauty of the building. We still have friends talking about it over six months later.

The Radisson Lackawanna State Hotel did an absolutely beautiful job! The service at the wedding was beyond excellent. The waiters assigned to the tables were friendly, fast, and extremely accommodating. The food was delicious. Many of my guests commented on how it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. My parents and I (the bride) were so pleased with everything the Radisson did to make my wedding run as smoothly as possible. It was the best day of my life!
You just can't beat the natural charm and character of the location. The hotel is historic and beautiful. Thank you to the amazing staff, and especially Cindy!

From the moment we met with Ashely Cozza, our wedding coordinator, we knew everything was going to be great. There was not a thing that i could have missed. Ashley was always very organized and had a certain way of calming me down when i was freaking out. She oversaw every detail and was there on the wedding day until everything was set into motion. All of my guests were well taken care of. The rooms were fantastic. Overall our experience was amazing. I honestly do not think anything could have been better. The food was amazing! We had so many compliments from our guests about the food. The set up and service was beyond my expectations. I will difinately use them in the future for get togethers. We also used TRAX for our Rehearsal get together and again, the service was amazing.

The Radisson did a superb job with my wedding. I could not have asked for more. It was truly a magical day and I give the staff credit for that. From the linens to desert, they ensure your wedding day will run smoothly from start to finish. The Staff at the Radisson go above and beyond the basics to ensure you will have a beautiful day. The quality of their food and service cannot be compared. The venue is beautiful and the staff is first rate. I cannot say enough. Relax future Brides and Grooms, you are in good hands at the Radisson Lackawanna Station.
Cheers!

The Radisson Lackawanna Station was perfect for our wedding. Everyone we worked with, in particular Cindy Condella, was incredibly helpful and made the planning and day-of easy and enjoyable. The Radisson was especially accommodating for our families, as everyone invited to the wedding was coming from out town. The venue was incredible and the food was perfect. We still have family and friends remark to us - 2 years later - that our wedding was beautiful and fun, thanks to the Radisson.

Unfortunately, a few of our cake baker's items were misplaced (cake plates) and I had to pay for replacement peices for her. When hotel staff were contacted, they kindly looked for them, but could not locate them.

Otherwise, our wedding was perfect and the Radisson staff went above and beyond to make the event worry-free and enjoyable for us and our guests.

The Radisson was wonderful however, our meals took EXTREMELY long to come out and some people didn't get served until very late which cut into the dancing time. This was very disappointing especially considering my 93 year old, hungry great grandfather was served nearly last. He was not a happy camper!

My wedding at the Station was perfect. If I were to do it all over again, I literally would not change a think. Cindy was our planner and she was excellent. Our waiters were so nice and attentive. Almost three years (and many weddings later), my friends still tell me that our wedding had the best food of any wedding and was the most fun.

Working w/ Ms. Condella and planning my wedding with the Radisson was an enjoyable experience. Everything was done well & I was extremely pleased with the service, food, and atmosphere. I also had my Newlywed Breakfast in the hotel lobby. The only real issue that I could offer improvement on was there was a wait staff women assigned to both my wedding & the brunch. She acted overly chummy, at times, & when she overheard me mentioning to someone I didn't know what to do with all of the glass hurricane vases we had used for centerpieces, she immediately pulled me aside & gave me this whole schmeal about how I should 'do the right thing' and leave some for the Radisson. These were expensive glass vases and I declined, but she kept asking me, when I finally gave in she walked away with 3 of them! I sincerely doubt they were for the Radisson & do believe she wanted to take them home. She was sketchy & I wasn't too thrilled with her pushiness.

Cindy was a great person to work with. She is very organized and it is clear that she knows what she is doing. She calmed our fears and it was a great day, in part because she knew all of our questions even before we asked them. Mary helped us the day of the wedding and she was great too. The staff at the Radisson is extremely well prepared and a joy to be around. We had our own waiter at the reception (Luis) and he asked us if we needed something constantly. He was very nice and helpful. Plus, the radisson's old world charm just cant be beat!

i have very mixed feelings about my wedding here...there were a LOT of problems with the planning - to the point i had to complain to the GM. things kept slipping through the cracks - even serving us food during the meal tasting with the one ingredient we had contracted with them to NOT use bc of an allergy. yet they said 'opps we forgot - whats the big deal" the wedding came off ok...but all the headache with the planning made it almost not worth it
