The Driskill made our big day completely magical and perfect. We wouldn't have changed a thing! We had the best experience with all of the Driskill staff. All very professional and really cater to your every need.

Our primary contact, Amanda Tofflemire, was from start to finish absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond to answer all of our many questions and make our day truly the best day of our lives!

They took our concept and vision and executed it exactly how we imagined. It was the best night of our lives, and the Driskill helped make that happen!

Since I was little I dreamed of having my wedding at the Driskill. So much history and such a beautiful building. They just don't make them like that anymore. The service was absolutely wonderful. Every member of the hotel staff is kind and courteous. From the valets and bellmen to the concierge and desk attendants. The food was unbelievable! I swear that I got more compliments from my guests about the tenderloin than I did my dress. A+ all around. Every bride should consider this for their wedding.

The Driskill Hotel was my dream spot for a wedding. I never thought the date would be available since we planned everything in 3 months, or that it would be affordable on our budget.....but it was both! We had a smaller wedding, and we were one of 3 going on that night, but they took amazing care of us. Our catering manager was amazing. There is always going to be something that goes a little wrong, even with the best planning, and they were unflappable. The food was amazing, and the cake was better than I could have imagined. Our guests had a great time!

The Driskill was the perfect place to have my wedding. The venue itself was exceptionally beautiful, but on top of that the event staff was 5 star. Why 4.7 stars then? We had some issues with our room block, or rather, we had some issues getting the staff to book our guests' rooms properly, and the after-regular-hours staff didn't seem to know that we had a room block and weren't able to change it or book rooms in it.

That being said, everything about the EVENT itself was PERFECT. Scott (the Catering Manager) is absolute perfection. He is VERY responsive, polite, accommodating, and intuitive. He and I barely spoke about what I wanted in a cake until the week of the wedding (that was my bad) and he pulled out the most gorgeous cake I have ever seen. Seriously, he was AMAZING.

The valet staff were awesome too! We rented a VERY expensive exotic car for our getaway, and they took great care to make sure everything went well and the car was well cared for.

The catering staff prepared all the food to 100% perfection! Seriously, everyone keeps telling us how amazing the food was. It is no small fete to prepare food for 150 people without it tasting like "catered food" but it was soooo good. I just wish I could have eaten more!

The service staff is ON POINT. The head catering waiter was right there with me and my husband all evening making sure that we were well taken care of. There he was, ready to make sure there was a drink in our hands and food in our mouths during and in-between photos, and all during the reception. It was really 5 star all the way.

In summary, the only negative thing about the experience was just the few issues we had with our room block, and had NOTHING to do with the wedding itself. Everything else was absolutely perfect. We are getting raves about the whole event! It's really true what they say, I wouldn't have changed a single thing. The Driskill is truly a one-of-a-kind hotel. We felt like royalty. :)

The Driskill was perfect for our wedding! It is absolutely stunning on it's own so any decorations or flowers were just for our personal preference. Amanda Barone, the Catering Events Manager, was wonderful to work with-any question I had, request etc.... she was always willing to work with me. She was incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I could go on forever about how great her and all the staff at The Driskill was. Having my wedding at The Driskill was like a fairy-tale and Amanda helped make that happen!

The Driskill hotel is a FANTASTIC place to get married. The entire staff was pleasant and accommodating... besides one person. My wedding consultant was HORRIBLE. I would never recommend working with her. I met with her to discuss the logistics on January 16th. I did not hear back from her until the END OF FEBRUARY. This is after repeated e mails and phone calls. She showed up on my wedding day 1.5 hours late. We couldnt reach her on her cell phone and nobody knew where she was. She should be fired. Other than that, the hotel staff is very helpful and courteous!

This was the perfect place for my wedding ceremony and reception! I loved the food, the ambiance, the location, the history of the hotel, and this location fit my Victorian theme to a T. I absolutely enjoyed my experience with everyone involved from the catering department. The food was exceptional and my cake was decadent! I can only look back on this day with fond memories and I wish the day would have lasted so much longer!
