Four Points Tallahassee Downtown
I actually did not end up having my reception at this location. My fiance and I booked the venue before the renovations were complete but were given full tours and promises that the room could indeed hold our required number of people, a DJ, and dance floor. I even told my father to back off a little when he continued to ask for assurance that the venue would be able to accommodate our guest list. After several meetings with the "event planner" (we were made to wait over half an hour for one of these meetings) we felt confident that this was the space for us. We signed the contract and blocked off rooms for our overnight guests. I'm not sure if this is normal practice for most hotels, but even though they cut off guaranteeing the rooms available at least a month out from the event, we were still responsible for paying for any rooms that were not booked (to a certain percentage of the original amount). This seemed ridiculous at the time but we wanted the convenience for our guests. Anyways, fast forward to about 3 months before our wedding date- my fiance and I popped in to the hotel just to check things out. There were workers setting up for event in the room we had booked so we poked our heads in. The banquet manager was very friendly and invited us in to take a look around. We began to discuss our event and when we told him the number of guests we were planning to have he immediately told us that there was NO WAY that room could hold that many guests- even without a dance floor. They could possibly seat people outside but even that may not have been enough space. Needless to say we were quite surprised and contacted the event planner immediately. When she finally responded she did tell us that indeed, the room could not hold the number she had promised us- that it would hold almost 100 LESS than that. Lucky for them, they let us our of our contract. Lucky for us, we were able to find another venue on such short notice. Don't book this place. End of story.
Vendor response to review
Please accept our sincere apologies for the problems you encountered with this previously contracted event, leading to its cancellation. During our complete property transformation, there was definitely some confusion regarding how many people the room would seat. Until we were able to see the room set up options, we did not realize our count was inaccurate. Admittedly, we should have done a better job explaining the situation and following up with you sooner. We hope you can forgive us for this error in judgment and consider us for future opportunities. Since opening, our team has produced numerous successful and memorable events and we take great pride in both what we have accomplished to date and what our future holds for us. All this being said, we again sincerely apologize for how this situation was handled and communicated to you.
