We held my daughter's wedding reception at the Margarete Heye Great Room at Ruth Eckerd Hall, The room, when properly decorated and lighted, is more beautiful than any hotel ballroom in the area. It features a dramatic high ceiling and huge chandelier. We had 230 people for a sit down dinner and a live band and dance floor and the room was perfect.

There were 2 sold out shows in the auditorium the evening of the wedding so Ruth Eckerd Hall provided free reserved parking for our guests, along with a person to direct them into the reserved area. It worked out great and we were very pleased.

Ovations does all of the catering for Ruth Eckerd Hall so you must use them. Ovations provided excellent food and bar service for a very reasonable price.

I highly recommend Ruth Eckerd Hall and Ovations Catering!!

We dealt with Rene at Ruth Eckerd Hall. She is absolutely AMAZING!! Rene knows her stuff, without a doubt. We had our wedding reception in the Margaret Heye Great Room. Not only was the room affordable, it was beautiful, the large chandelier is so elegant. We booked Ruth Eckerd over a year before our wedding day, and if given the opportunity to choose a different venue, we would still choose Ruth Eckerd! The staff is professional and very kind. The food is AMAZING! If you are looking for an affordable but sophisticated venue, Ruth Eckerd is the place to go!

I hired Ruth Eckerd Hall for my wedding reception venue. I had originally hired another location but my guest list had exceeded the capacity at my original reception venue so I had to change my venue literally a month before my wedding. I dealt with Rene who worked with me from the beginning to the end. Rene was wonderful in her customer service, professionalism, and responsiveness. We used the Margaret Heye Great Room for the reception and the room was absolutely perfect. My husband and I are so thankful that we had Rene who worked with us to make everything possible. The room was beautiful and the customer service was exceptional. It isn't a place one would normally consider for a wedding reception but it turned out to exceed our expectations!

Marty was a pleasure to work with. He did everything he could to make our day absolutely perfect. We had a small problem with one of his staff members which was a misunderstanding and he fixed immediately. We also had some issues with parking, however there was a large show there the night of which was to be understood. All in all This place is amazing and they really do all they can to help you out. I loved it and recommend them to everyone.

One month before my wedding, my reception venue closed. I was a wreck! After calling around to about everywhere in the Tampa Bay area we got in touch with Ruth Eckerd Hall and they had an opening. My mom and I met with Marty who showed us the room and talked about our options. After leaving, I broke into tears because I knew that Marty would take care of us. And I was right. I didn't have to worry about a thing! As soon as we pulled up to the reception Marty was waiting for us with a server who had hor d'oeuvres and took drink orders for the bridal party. Later that night he was even there to personally make up a dinner plate for me and my new husband! I really do believe everything happens for a reason. Thanks to Marty and his staff my wedding was better than I had ever imagined.

Absolutely beautiful place to have a wedding. The wedding coordinator left Ruth Eckerd Hall a week and half before our wedding and you would never known it. Of course we were in a panic, but Mike met with my mom and had everything in order, knew exactly what we wanted and the price we had agreed on. On our wedding day, everything looked better than we had imagined. It was perfect and I commend the staff of Ruth Eckerd Hall for not allowing the staff changes to affect us in any way.

Rene was good to work with. At our final walk through I was not really feeling the layout, so we were able to change it and make everything perfect. The staff that day worked hard and were very courteous!
