I could not be happier with The American Hotel. They made my wedding day dreams come true. Everything was beautiful and even almost a week later it is all my family and friends are talking about. Joy and Jim are extremely accommodating. I felt like I was dealing with family when I spoke with them. In addition, The American Hotel was very affordable. I plan on having several events at the hotel in the future.

My husband and I fell in love with The American Hotel for our winter wedding because the ceremony and reception rooms were both beautiful and had big fireplaces. Getting married in winter made it hard to find venues with pretty ceremony rooms, but American Hotel made our ceremony beautiful! We got married in front of the fireplace with rose petals in the isle and candles all over the mantle, it was very romantic. Then the reception room was even more gorgeous! All of my guests were coming up to me telling me how beautiful everything was! Jim and Joy were awesome And a pleasure to work with, We planned the whole wedding in 6 months and they made that possible. We couldn't be happier with how our day turned out! Highly reccomend The American Hotel!

Our daughter's wedding was at the American Hotel on November 14, 2015 and we want to express our sincere thank you to Joy, Jim and the entire staff. The reception was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. We all know a lot of planning and decisions need to be made far in advance and both Jim and Joy were a pleasure to work with. There is not one detail that they did not help us with or take care of. Due to their professionalism, attention to detail and sincere caring attitude, our family had a magical day. We can’t thank them enough.

We had our wedding at the American Hotel on 9/6/15. When I first came to the hotel for a visit, I was very impressed with the entire venue and also with Joy.Joy never gave me the feeling that she was trying to be a sales person or sell us.She was genuinely just a nice person,honest,responsive,&knowledgable. She made us feel like family from the beginning. Everything from the meetings, to the food tasting (which was perfectly orchestrated) went off without a hitch. Jim was also super helpful and nice. Jim and Joy are a really great team and they know what they are doing. Fast forward to the week of the wedding- we had a death in the family days before our wedding and they were nothing but accommodating for us which was a breath of fresh air. When we got to the hotel, Jim had arranged for some cocktail hour food to be sent up to our hotel room so we could eat before going downstairs and greeting guests. The food was amazing (several guests raved) , the cocktail hour was perfect and we planned on attending but wound up missing most of it so Jim extended it a little longer so we could enjoy it and mingle before starting the reception.Jim always made sure we had drinks in our hand, and their waiters were extremely attentive to our guests.Our guests told us that they checked on them all night to see if they could get them drinks from the bar throughout the night.The bartenders were so friendly and kind to our guests as well, the food was hot( and delicious- we had the chicken florentine, prime rib,& flounder with crab) &came out promptly.The whole evening went off without a hitch.We seriously could not have asked for a better location to have our wedding day.We just wanted to say thank you to the entire staff for making our wedding a TRULEY unforgettable night.If the wedding is any indication of our marriage, I think we will be in good shape.Thank you

My husband and I got married on August 8th. We had our reception at the American Hotel and it was the best decision. Joy and Jim were absolutely amazing to work with and made our day perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything more when picking a location to start our lives together.

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!!
