We worked with the Estes Park Resort for about a year. On the negative side, we worked with 4 different people so sometimes it was hard communicating all our changes and making sure they had the right information. About two months before our wedding, a new wedding coordinator was hired and I was super nervous as it being so close to the day. On the positive side, she did such an amazing job and made me feel so at ease that everything would turn out alright. Our wedding day was almost perfect and it wouldn't have happened if Jill was not there. The food is phenomenal and all of our guests were really pleased. I would say that it is sometimes hard to get a hold of people at the Resort by email and the responsiveness can sometimes take a couple days. But overall, I would recommend the Resort to others. It has a gorgeous view and a very lodg-y feel to it. We were also switching hotel rooms during our stay and they made it super easy and were so accommodating making sure our room could be cleaned right away so we could get settled before all the big events.

We had our morning after brunch here. It was spectacular! We had it upstairs in a space with a beautiful view. Free flow mimosas and a carving station. It was a perfect ending to our wedding in the mountains!! We had family up from all over the country, so we were thankful for just one more intimate meal. It was perfect!

We LOVED our time at Estes Park Resort for our February Wedding. We held our rehearsal dinner here, and also used them for some of our room blocks. All our guests raved about their amazing staff and service, and loved the food at our rehearsal dinner. Our friends had a great time at the bar, and appreciated that their hotel rooms were placed close to the rehearsal dinner space and bar space during their weekend stay. We would most definitely recommend them to anyone, and will be returning in the future. The location is convenient and beautiful, and the staff was such a joy to work with!

The Estes Park Resort responded with the following comments:

Tara,
Thank you for allowing us to host your recent event. The chef that prepared your dinner worked alongside previous Chef Aaron and assisted in your food tasting as well. I'm sorry you didn't feel the execution met your expectations. The ballroom was indeed set up the night before your wedding, minus the cake and gift table; which was promptly set up upon banquet staff arrival. Rest assured we are here to resolve any issues you faced. We apologize, we were not aware you are wanting a refund. If you are requesting a refund, please contact us directly.

The views at this resort are unbeatable. The rooms can be a little pricey but there are multiple other options for guests within walking distance, also the heart of estes park is only a few minutes down the road with the entrance to RMNP just past that. All of our guests enjoyed downtown (winery, antiques, etc) and nearly everyone saw unique CO wildlife on premises (elk, mule deer, etc). Jamie the event coordinator and all of the staff did a wonderful job, they were very flexible with some off the menu items/substitutions at the last minute. We also has some signature drinks that were perfectly executed and enjoyed by all. Lastly the resort just installed two giant outdoor fire pits which provided a great on site area to sit and enjoy Colorado at the end of each evening.

The Estes Park Resort has been wonderful helping plan our wedding. There was a few months that someone was out on maternity leave and a change in wedding planners that caused a little stress, but they quickly made changes to staff and when the other staff member returned from maternity leave all my worries subsided. Such a beautiful venue, wonderful food, and great staff!

We recently had our wedding at the Estes Park Resort and it was a beautiful day! Everything turned out wonderfully and all our guests had an amazing time. They were very flexible with all of our requests and needs and did a great job accommodating us! My only complaint would be that a new chef was hired right before our wedding, and we were not informed of this. It was a shock on the wedding day when we saw the meals coming out and they were not the same meals we had planned with the other chef. The food was still delicious, but when you spend so much per plate and your expectations are set on what you had before, it's kind of hard to ignore it. Overall we have an incredible day!

The resort itself is beautiful and in a great setting but it was the staff that made my son and daughter in law's wedding reception perfect. The Chef was outstanding and Kevin and Sophia (Management Staff) could not have been more supportive or worked harder. The reception was a complete success and the entire staff from management to servers were accommodating and had great "can do" attitudes. I can highly recommend the Estes Park Resort.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION is about the only positive thing that I can say about this venue. Nice room, and great food. For a wedding venue, though, we had so many prob,lems mostly dealing with inexperienced staff. A couple of weeks before my wedding, the coordinator I had been working with left, and the original marketing/sales lady that I had dealt with was also out for the next couple of months. I was told that we could easily plug in an iPhone to play music outside for the ceremony, and even confirmed this with the new coordinator weeks in advance, but at 8:00 on Friday night (when my wedding was at 11:00 the next morning), she did not have any way to play music outside! Then we went inside to see how to set up the music in the reception room, and she couldn’t get that to work either. Also in the reception room, she couldn’t get the fireplace to work. Back in our room, my maid of honor tried to call the front desk, and ask them to please have the coordinator call me when she first got in the next morning, and we discovered that the phone in the room didn’t work. And the coordinator never did call me the next morning. I didn’t see her until a minute before my ceremony, when my guests were already seated, and she was sweeping up leftover rose petals in the aisle from a wedding the previous day. At the reception, we had to argue with a server to get a bottle of wine. When it was all over, and we went to check out the next morning, our bill was a mess, and has yet to be resolved, almost two weeks later. One disappointment after another. It all boils down to young people with no experience. This is such a beautiful establishment, and has the potential to be fabulous. But a “resort,” it is not. A nice hotel, at best. Not at all equipped to handle weddings and other important formal events. I believe that if they were to hire a mature and truly experienced manager, they could turn it around and be great. Until then, I’m sorry to say, it’s a joke.

The Estes Park Resort responded with the following comments:

StefHagen, Thank you for your review and for bringing this to our attention. To show how seriously we take these reviews, our previous general manager who led us to receive “Best of Wedding Receptions” in 2013 and 2014 has returned to insure that these problems do not repeat themselves. Jamie, our Sales Director has returned as well from leave and we have also rehired for the Wedding Coordinator position. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the location and food. We vow to never repeat the lack of customer service you experienced. We will avoid any reoccurring instances like this in the future with our new team and we wish we could have avoided it on your wedding as well. We are truly sorry and if there is anything we can do for you, please feel free to reach out to us at sales@theestesparkresort.com.
