We looked at several locations before finally falling in love with this hotel. It has several ceremony and reception locations both inside and outside. It is located on a beautiful lake with lots of places for great pictures. The food in great and the prices are wonderful.

My husband and I decided to look at the Host Hotel after 6 different people recommended it to us, and I could not be happier that we ultimately chose to have our wedding here. The hotel offered a beautiful outdoor venue for both our ceremony and reception, as well as our rehearsal dinner and after-party.

Our favorite things about the Host Hotel were that 1) it came with a reception tent to provide shelter from the sun or rain (no extra charge) and had several beautiful indoor rain back-up spaces, 2) it came with an awesome wedding planner, who helped us figure out details we had not even considered, and who stayed nearby throughout our ceremony and reception to help the event go smoothly, 3) it was very flexible in allowing us to change our head count, contract, and even our wedding date when unexpected changes occurred (they even grandfathered us into an old menu that we had chosen but they no longer offered by the time we got married), 4) it didn't lock us into choosing any specific vendors, 5) it was much more affordable than most outdoor venues we had looked at, including state parks, and 6) the catering cost included almost everything--linens, silverware, glassware, champagne, table numbers, a cake cutting knife, decorations, and even centerpieces.

The food was AWESOME (as many of guests raved about), and the outdoor settings for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were beautiful. Throughout the wedding, the wedding planner kept checking in with me to make sure that everything was going smoothly, and helped remind my husband and I what traditional things we were doing in what order (because our brains were jelly by the reception). After the wedding, we had an after-party at a firepit that we had rented outside of our honeymoon suite, which was free on the night of our wedding and had an enormous living room for everyone to hang out in. It was a blast, and was the perfect way to keep the party rolling and unwind a bit following the wedding.

We recently got married at The Host. Kristen and Rebecca were awesome to work with. Very professional and responsive to our every need. We planned on having our wedding outside in the grove, but due to October's unsettled weather, we ended up making the morning of decision to change the location to inside the solarium, which was very beautiful.
The ceremony was perfect. The only thing we found as a challenge was the main aisle was small, but we didn't rehearse at that location, so that may have changed the outcome. The reception was everything I dreamed it would be and more. We had a total of 130 guests and the ballroom was a perfect size where it wasn't too crowded or too much space. The prime rib and stuffed chicken were delicious. (Even better than what we remembered from the tasting!)

Altogether, our wedding was more that what we dreamed it would be. Kristen thought of every little detail and took all of the stress away! We can't thank her enough!

We recently had our wedding here and the coordinators were phenomenal! Our reception took place in the tent and It rained all day..it didn't even bother us. Kristen, Ann and Rebecca made sure everything still fell into place. There were 3 or 4 weddings on our day as well as a show and I NEVER felt like I was brushed off or interfered with! I felt like we were the only ones there. I have lived in Sturbridge most of my life and I chose this venue for the convenience for family and friends. My guests were beyond satisfied with the service and the food.

My husband and I had a wonderful wedding at the Host. Everyone is so helpful and will bend over backwards for whatever you need. We would not have wanted to get married anywhere else. Kristen, the wedding planner, is a dream to work with. She goes above and beyond for any bride. Kristen truly takes pride in her work and it shows! A million thank yous to everyone at the Host for making our day better than we ever imagined!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience with planning our special day. Working with Kristen and Rebecca was great. They responded to emails promptly and were very easy to work with. The food was great and service was fast and friendly.

They did a great job with my wedding. There was some confusion about my reception times though. My reception with cocktail hour included was supposed to run from 6 to 1130 but wasnt told they were shutting it down at 1100 until right before. The Dj had to think quickly and rearrange a few things. It was only a half hour but felt like the communication could have been just a tad better. It is an amazing venue though!
