The Grand Ballroom, originally built in 1814 as the Gettysburg National Bank, features a 28’ hand painted ceiling inlaid with gold, period chandeliers, large windows with sweeping velvet evergreen draperies and a Grecian border. The original bank vault is still in use as both a place to store your wedding gifts and an ideal and unique photo backdrop.

I would tell anyone who was considering using the Gettysburg Hotel for a wedding or any other type of event not to hesitate one moment. They should book and sign the contracts ASAP! From our first meeting with Megan the event planner for my daughter's wedding we were made to feel very special. Megan could not have been any welcoming and helpful from day one and past the day of the wedding and reception. She was always available to us be it in person, by email or phone. She always responded quickly and kept us informed of any possible changes or things that we might be interested in. We attended two tastings at the hotel and both times very impressed with the vendors who were in attendance as well as the food and the way it was presented. The ballroom was elegant as well as warm and inviting for all of our guests. Megan and the rest of the staff were exceptional before, during and after. We could not have asked for more personal attention from each and every one. All of our family and friends are still raving about the hotel, the wedding at the train station and the reception in the ballroom, as well as the town of Gettysburg. I can't speak highly enough of the food at the cocktail hour and dinner. No one walked away hungry. The wedding cake was the best wedding cake that I have had and the presentation of the cake was beautiful to say the least. As you can tell we were very pleased with my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. If possible we would rate them a 10!

I was the father of the bride. The only reason that I rated this 5 stars is that there are not 10 stars listed. The wedding coordinator Megan Wherley was exceptional from the initial point of contact, through the planning stage and through the wedding reception. All of our 137 guests had their needs attended to. The staff was professional and amazing. I was admittedly nervous since this is my only daughter and wanted things to go well. As it turned out this was a worry free experience as the event exceeded my expectations. Again, Megan was amazing. I have no hesitation recommending this location for your most important day.

I don’t know the words to describe how wonderful my wedding experience was with Gettysburg. Megan – the event coordinator – is an absolutely angel. Everything – EVERYTHING – went smoothly. She handled a lot of stuff before the wedding and everything during the wedding. I was able to completely focus on my husband and me the entire night. I didn’t have to make sure anything was done the way I wanted it – she did it all.
1. Before the wedding…I met Megan at the first bridal show I went to after getting engaged. I was instantly hooked. Throughout the year+ leading up to my wedding, Megan helped keep me on track, gave me ideas when I was at a loss, answered any questions I had, and answered any that I didn’t know I had. I was working 80 hours a week for the last 6 months before the wedding. I couldn’t put much time into planning, and I was a nervous wreck. Megan assured me everything would be ok, and she was right.
2. The night of the wedding…It went without a hitch. I have no horror stories like many brides do. She kept everything on time, got people where they needed to go, and managed all of the vendors. When I saw the decorated ballroom – I could not believe how amazing it turned out to be. She checked on us frequently to make sure we were ok.
3. Venue in general…location is great. My guests loved being able to walk around downtown Gettysburg and see the sites. There is a men’s clothing store right there for the unexpected issues with the men. The food at the reception was fantastic. It was served hot, and the servers were great. At the end of the night, I was able to just leave without worrying about clean up. The next day I could pick up my stuff from the vault (very cool feature).

I could go on and on about this place. Overall, it is a beautiful venue with the best event coordinator I could have hoped for that made for the wedding of my dreams. We want to renew our vows there on our 5 year anniversary just so we can do it again!

The Gettysburg Hotel made our day perfect in every way. From the planning (Megan was outstanding), the food was incredible and the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. If you are thinking about having your big day in Gettysburg... This is the place! I had always heard planning a wedding is one of the most stressful experiences you can go through, but the staff and Megan gave us not only a stress free and amazing day... They also gave our guests an incredible weekend. Look no further... Call Megan Wherley and your day will be perfect.

The Gettysburg Hotel was a fabulous wedding venue. The location right on the square in Gettysburg was perfect. The wedding was at 2PM at another location, but the reception didn't start until 5:30 so we had quite a bit of down time. However, there was so much to see and do right in the vicinity of the hotel that no one seemed be bothered by this at all. The down time actually gave friends and family time to catch up and take in the shops and sights on the square. Additionally, the service and professionalism of the wedding planner, Megan Wherley, was impeccable! She was on top of every aspect of the wedding reception and was a pleasure to work with. Her follow up to our calls and questions was prompt and she was very flexible with the dinner menu and made sure everything was exactly to our liking. Her entire staff at the hotel was accommodating and also very easy to work with. We were having such a wonderful time at the reception that we were able to extend our reception another hour (for a fee of course) the night of the wedding on the spur of the moment. Talk about accommodating! I would highly recommend the Gettysburg Hotel if you want to have a terrific wedding experience!

My husband and I recently had our wedding at The Gettysburg Hotel. Not only did we think it was the best wedding (a little biased) but all of our guests felt the same way too. Nearly five months after our wedding and we still are having guests tell us what an amazing time they had. That is largely due to Megan Wherley and her crew. They not only accomodated us in every way they could with our budget, recommending vendors for us to use (who were also amazing) but also helped make sure our day went off without any issues. The food was terrific (Filet, Risotto and Chicken were our choices). The layout of the room was awesome and easily fit our 210+ guests and the dance floor was large enough to keep the dance party going all night long. Megan met with my mom, mother in law, husband and myself a few times throughout our 18 month engagement and answered every call, text and email within a day (mind you, she was planning her own wedding during this time). She's one of a kind! Everything was perfect and more than we ever thought it could be. We had the most spectacular wedding and I would highly recommend having your event at The Gettysburg Hotel.
