Supported Layouts and Capacities
My wedding reception was held at the Lancaster Marriott in historic downtown Lancaster in June,2010. I live in Lancaster and I didn't have a lot of money to go out of town to go find a posh place to keep my wedding and reception. I looked around and from all the tours that I've been on I can say unreservedly that this is one of, if not the most, beautiful hotels in all of Pennsylvania. I mean this place is luxurious and to die for! Everything seems so new and well-kept. We kept our reception in their ballroom as it was very big so it could hold all of my 200 guests. We got the floral arrangements and dinnerware in the package, as well as a room for our honeymoon (I don't know if this is standard). All my guests were seated comfortably, the band had their section, the head table was rather big since I had 6 maids and 6 groom's men and we still had enough space for dancing. My wedding decorator came in and did her work, really beautifying the place and it looked so royal and amazing. I think my reception was one of the best receptions ever and I couldn't have done it without the help of the staff at the Lancaster Marriott. They really went all out to make sure that everything was set up on time, the place was clean, that there would be no "wedding crashers" and just overall no disturbances or hitches. Oh, and the honeymoon suite was AMAZING! I can begin to describe how posh this place is. The linen was super clean, the furniture looked expensive and new, the room service was fast and friendly and they put those mints and chocolate on the bed when they came to clean. I would definitely stay there again maybe for my anniversary or just for a little vacation. I would recommend this place any time.
I had the best experience with this location. The managers were incredibly tolerant and patient while I asked millions of questions, ranging from "are there windows in the ballroom?" to "Can we please move the time back?". They were able to help me understand how much money was necessary for rooms to be reserved. They helped me come up with a seating diagram so we both knew what to expect from the event. When problems arose with payment, the head of banquet services came in after her shift had ended in order to have them sorted out. They were willing to work with us and help organize the event from the planning process all the way to the day of. I would definitely recommend using this location as they have many room options available, and I can guarantee that they will help you work within your budget. They were flexible with the prices and meal options in order to maintain that our event stayed within a certain price range, and I sacrificed no service for this cheaper price. I was treated as though we were the only event they had that week, and they always made me feel like we were their number one priority.
