Outstanding in every way! , An Eventective User from Omaha, NE

The view from the reception site at the top of the hotel just couldn’t be touched by any other location we considered (and we visited at least 12). Diana was super helpful about creating exactly the ambiance our daughter wanted and the hotel staff expertly set up all the table decorations after they saw one example (saving lots of bridal party/family time on already too-busy days). The bridal room on the top floor allowed all the girls to be together as they prepared for the wedding but yet with plenty of room for everyone instead of the small, cramped spaces other sites offered. Additionally, we were delighted to have a gorgeous sunset as the backdrop for the wedding party-the photos are just amazing. Plus the food, OMG the food! We lost count of the numerous compliments we got about the plated meal we had, which, even though our selections were some of the least expensive, you would never know it. Diana made everything happen exactly as we wanted throughout the entire weekend (even the last minute requests and accommodations) and her many years of experience helped us consider every detail ahead of time. She was like having a wedding planner without the additional cost. Thank you, Diana! We are so glad we decided to go with the Holiday Inn for our daughter’s wedding reception! We wouldn’t change a thing!

Great venue for a small meeting, An Eventective User from Union, Iowa

The staff were kind, the food was great and the meeting room was perfect for our group.

GREAT CHOICE!!, chacha from Moorhead, Iowa

I held our wedding reception at this location. They were very profession, the food was great and they treated us like royalty. Diana Logan, the event coordinator was amazing. She catered to everything we wanted. She also got a hot fresh pizza in our room for when we were finished. Amazing choice! The Tower Ballroom is beautiful and a great view of the city!
