I had my wedding here in June and The Stanley is a beautiful venue to have a wedding. The scenery is breathtaking. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the food during the wedding and also at their restaurant. Their breakfast was very good. Overall, the day was beautiful and the location was perfect.

This hotel is very disorganized. When I arrived the front desk could not tell me who or where my wedding coordinator was. Not a problem, I e-mailed her and we met up the following day, but kind of weird to experience the disjointedness between departments.

Housekeeping accidentally took a personal glass from our room (mistakes happen, no problem) but when I called down to see if they could find it before we checked out not only could they not locate it, but they promised they would continue to look and call me back with an update. I never received a return phone call or e-mail. This was part of a wedding gift, and I did express that.

During the process of planning my wedding, my wedding coordinator left her position and I was continuing to e-mail her asking questions. After my e-mails had gone unanswered I called to find she no longer worked for the Stanley and I had been assigned a new coordinator. This was very upsetting. It's a very basic thing to forward an e-mail address to ensure clients aren't left behind and at the very least they should have someone reach out personally when there's a change in planning such an important, personal event.

The night of the wedding, appetizers were served without a utensil station so people were trying to pick with their hands until I asked the staff to provide utensils. This was like mozzarella caprese, not generally a finger food.

I had requested our cocktail hour be set up for outside on the veranda since it was a beautiful day. They had the bar set up outside, but no tables or chairs for guests. The guests waited around for chairs and they never brought tables.

The Stanley was horribly at communicating. It would take 2-3 weeks for them to return a phone call or email. I would often have to call/email 3-4 times before I got a response. If you do not have a room at the hotel there is no room to do hair/makeup touch ups before your ceremony. They ended up putting us in a board room with no mirror. Everything came together and my wedding day was beautiful, but it was very frustrating waiting 2-3 weeks to get a response.

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful! We loved every minute of it. Hillary was a wonderful and accommodating event coordinator and the lunch buffet was amazing. All my guests said it was the best salmon they ever had. You can't beat the location and although the prices are a bit high, it was worth it!

I am having the hardest time getting ahold of Hilary at the Stanley to plan my destination wedding. I have left numerous messages and never seem to get a response. She is the third wedding planner that I have been assigned due to staffing problems. They have all had similar lack of responsiveness. The location is beautiful but I have had to tour it myself every time I visit because they are always busy or not there. It is not easy for me to frequently fly out to Colorado for wedding planning and they are not making the process any easier.

The Stanley Hotel made our wedding planning and my daughter’s entire wedding very difficult. We went through 4 wedding coordinators in less than one year. It is not uncommon to go several days and even up to 1 week without receiving an e-mail response from the last coordinator that we worked with. I resorted to working with the Catering Sales Manager when I couldn’t get answers about the rehearsal dinner time and other questions because the coordinator failed to let me know before she went on a 2 week vacation (she promised to let me know 1 month before the wedding the rehearsal dinner time, but I didn’t even know that she was going to be out of the office). I had to finally just show up one day to work out the final details of the ceremony and reception because I wouldn’t get a timely response. My DJ even had better suggestions for the set up at the Concert Hall because the coordinator was so inexperienced at her job!
I would not recommend the Stanley Hotel as a wedding venue to anyone ever. I am devastated by the amount of money we spent on our daughter’s wedding and don’t feel they deserve even half of what we paid. The staff, with the exception of Jersey, was inexperienced and cold to our entire wedding party, family and friends. We heard constant complaints about how they were treated during their stay.
The wedding ceremony started at 4 pm and check in is also at 4 pm, so we were allowed to have early check in for VIP quests (wedding party). The maid of honor’s room along with her 2 friends didn’t get their room until 15 minutes before the wedding. It was ridiculous. Her friends were trying to apply makeup in the hallway and were told they could not do that there. We asked for a refund for that room, and was offered a 10% discount on their overpriced room rate. They only had the room for about 8 hours before leaving for the airport the next morning.
I urge you, don't bother with the Stanley, find another venue!

My wedding at the Stanley on 9/26/2015 was the most perfect day I could have ever asked for. Our event coordinator Cynthia did everything she could to see that the day flowed exactly as we wanted it to. She was there every step of the way for the rehearsal and ceremony and made sure she communicated with me throughout both of these days. She was quick to answer our questions and respond through e-mails. Everything ran exact according to my timeline and the guests loved their meals. We chose Salmon and Steak and the Steak was prepared Medium- just as we had requested. Our ceremony was on the Front Lawn and the hotel did a great job making sure there were no other guests disturbing the ceremony- the walkways and the hotel lobby were kept clear for us. I was concerned about the amount of space for our 115 guests with the new maze, but seating worked great and the site was everything I could have imagined.
The reason I gave service a 4 was because we had some issues in the beginning with coordinators leaving- I ended up having 4 different coordinators in all which was a little frustrating because I would email one and get no response, then call and find out that person did not work there anymore. The good thing was they all took precise notes and the next coordinator was able to pick up where the last one had left off without me having to explain everything I wanted all over again, and since Cynthia was around for the final 9 months of planning she was able to ensure that everything went according to plan. I was overjoyed with our experience between staying at the hotel for 3 nights, having everything we needed brought to our room so the girls could get hair and makeup done, and the way we were treated by all of the staff. Jersey- the head of the catering department did a great job with all of her servers at the wedding and made sure the reception ran smoothly. I would recommend the Stanley to anyone!

Our wedding at the Stanley was absolutely beautiful but it wasnt because of anything that the Stanley Hotel helped with. They were very hard to get a hold of and I felt like I was in the dark alot. The night before our wadding, they called us and informed us that teh entire hotel was without hot water and asked if we would like to rebook... ommmm no... we are getting married there tomorrow!!! But that didnt seem to bother them and they made no additional arrangements for us because of the lack of hot water. All in all, I wouldnt change anything about that day. But the Stanley Hotel is expensive and all you really get for that is the fact that you get to say you got married at the Stanley.

We hosted a rehearsal dinner at The Stanley on Saturday evening in the Pinon-Billiard Room and were pleased with everything ... the elegant way our room was set up, the amazing food, and the great service. Because our son and his bride had a "destination wedding" , nearly all of the guests were from out of town and they were thrilled to have an opportunity to visit The Stanley Hotel. Although there were several other weddings & receptions happening the same night as our dinner, we received top-notch service and attention from the staff.

Cynthia, our event manager, did a terrific job coordinating our event. I met with, called, and emailed a number of times before our event, and she was consistently professional and pleasant, and most helpful in explaining everything and communicating with us regularly. But of course the bottom line was that everything we planned was executed to perfection, and everyone had a wonderful evening.
