Everything about the American Hotel my husband and I loved! The location, the food, the atmosphere, the rooms and of course the workers were all fabulous! We recently were married this past April and once we saw the American Hotel we knew this was the place to celebrate our wedding. My husband and I are very much into vintage things and the 1950's; we wanted to portray that theme for our wedding; Jim and Joy were extremely helpful and accommodating to everything we wanted. Joy answered all of my emails; even the little things that I would over think she would help me to relax and enjoy the whole process. Jim was fantastic too! During the cocktail hour/reception he made sure I always had a drink whether it was a cocktail or a glass of water, anything I needed, he was there. My husband and I didn't have the chance to eat much; Jim had our food wrapped up so we could take it home the next day. It's been almost two months since our wedding and people are still raving about the food and how wonderful the hall/hotel was. I would highly recommend this place to anymore who's getting married! It can be a little pricey but it's worth it!! Love this place!!

Jim and Joy have been an absolute pleasure to work with on our wedding on March 14, 2015. We've had many opportunities to meet with Jim and Joy to discuss the various details throughout the planning process and provided great examples and ideas, making our day that much more special.

The American Hotel was our best choice for venue for many reasons: 1) The facility is very well-kept and the ballrooms were stunning in appearance; 2) The food selection and quality was mind-blowing; and 3) the entire staff throughout the night were friendly and extremely receptive to everyone's needs. Jim and Joy managed to make our wedding feel stress-free.

We look forward to potentially having additional events at the American Hotel or attending in-house events. The American Hotel went above and beyond in making our wedding day special.

Our wedding night was absolutely perfect! Jim and Joy were a pleasure to work with during the whole planning process up to the day of the wedding. They were very flexible with our needs and helped make the night run smoothly. All our guests raged about how good the food was. The decor of the hotel was perfect for our special night. I would highly recommend The American Hotel for any event.

We checked out a lot of places for our wedding and settled on the American Hotel. Loved the renovations that make the old world feel come to life in an elegant way, and Joy and Jim were a pleasure to work with right off the bat. They truly made the ENTIRE process before the big weekend seem effortless and came up with good suggestions when we weren’t sure which to go. The price was all inclusive and devoid of any cheap gimmicks or hidden fees. We also had our rehearsal dinner there, and I would remiss if I didn’t mention that the food that night was a bit off – however, things happen, and the reaction from Jim and the staff was great. They made up for it that night and even added some nice touches for the next day. I was mostly concerned with having a great wedding, and that it WAS. The entire day was full of little details that were taken care of by Jim and the staff. Pedro was a star both nights (rehearsal and wedding), and again I just can’t say enough about Jim and Joy. The food was delicious; the atmosphere great, and a grand time was had by all. They took care of our family and understood our crowd. I will say this – if you stay at the hotel, the bar does play music that you can hear in almost every room in the hotel until 2 AM. Aside from that, which wasn’t a huge concern as it’s not blasting, the rooms were perfect. Again, what really mattered was the wedding and that is a 5 star experience, a perfect evening. All in all, highly recommended, and we will definitely be going back to the restaurant for dinner and back for any other events we may host.

We had our rehearsal dinner at the American Hotel and it was fantastic! From the minute we started working with Joy, we were extremely impressed by her helpfulness and responsiveness. She even let us come there the week before to test the equipment we would be using to present a slideshow we had made for the event. My husband's parents hosted the dinner and could not say enough about how great Joy and the staff were throughout the planning process! At the rehearsal dinner, the staff was so accommodating and attentive! The food was delicious and we received so many compliments! Thank you Joy and the American Hotel staff!!

I must start out by saying I am a very planned, organized, and detail oriented person. I have no complaints for their entire process leading up to and for the event. Joy and Jim at the American Hotel Banquet area exceeded all expectations, which were high, in every category. The effortlessness of the event was 100% due to the integrity and professionalism they had towards making the event special and one in a lifetime. The first moment we met with Jim and discussed our event based upon information Joy had provided, we knew this was the place after evaluating numerous alternate venues. Our guests had comments such as "nice and elegant", "one of the best receptions", "first class", "food was amazing", "I cleaned my plate", and "you guys have outdone yourself again". Comments like these and others were due to the staff for our Reception, Nicole was amazing, Pedro, Eric and Carol went out of their way to ensure guests had what they needed. These are just a few, their entire staff was there to support our event and make it flawless. Lastly, if you are considering this venue and Joy and Jim to handle your special event, trust they will provide you with a lifetime of memories for years to come as they have done for us. Please contact me for any additional details at pollickd@aol.com.
