Everything here was excellent and the catering staff was wonderful! The food came out on time and was hot and delicious. Our guests complimented the food throughout the evening. The menu was very affordable and they offer both plated and buffet options.

The cocktail hour was a hit (even with the kids), and the variety was excellent.

The room itself is beautiful and I believe it can accommodate up to 150 or more. Despite the large capacity of the room, it was perfect and intimate enough for our 65 person guest list. The wine cellar itself was a great place for our guests to mingle next to the bar or take a seat away from the commotion. Tall windows let in the light beautifully, and the doors open out on to a patio. It was too bad the weather was chilly and rainy! Very romantic setting, I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue for our wedding reception!

This venue truly deserves a 5 out of 5 stars. Every single detail was executed with the most detail. Working with Patty and her team was a delight. On the big day I didn't have to worry about a thing. Plus, you can't find a more affordable option with this quality. The food (what I got of it) was delicious and my guests were very pleased with it as well. I would recommend this venue to any couple looking for the perfect place to hold their wedding.

I am over the moon with the service we received from HRTM! We were a little nervous about how the day would go, since the events are managed and run by students, but we were beyond impressed. Both staff and students were very professional, helpful, and friendly, and they were accomodating to any and all changes/requests we made. We had attended a couple of Showcase tasting events put on by the students, and thought the food there was mediocre, so we were a little nervous about what we might get at our reception, (having made last minute menu changes, we never got a tasting of our actual menu). The venu was perfect for us, so we were willing to possibly sacrifice food for ambiance. Thankfully, we were pleasantly surprised to find the food at our event was amazing and the presentation was gorgeous. Everything our guests were served was delicious, and I felt proud to host our guests there. Patty Farmer is the event coordinator there, and one of the most helpful vendors I worked with!

The ballroom at DU’s hotel school is just breathtaking. From the wine cellar to the arched windows, this venue was everything we hoped for. The coordinator, Patty Farmer, is friendly, straight to the point and she really knows her stuff. Our guests raved about the food and the service. It was such a relief to find this beautiful venue with great food without busting our budget. Seriously, less than $30/person without feeling like we had to sacrifice anything?? AMAZING!

We held our ceremony and reception at DU's School of Hospitality, Restaurant, and Tourism Management. This venue is a hidden gem. The prices were incredibly reasonable, their service was great, the food was awesome. There were the usual snafus that are to be expected, but they handled them well and our evening was fantastic. (At a price that could not be beat.)

If you're looking for something that's not a wedding factory but you don't quite want to do the work of one of the truly unique spaces, this is an ideal compromise.
