50th Wedding Anniversary - An Eventective User

Didn't want a hotel venue that felt like a convention setting. Didn't want an extra room in a restaurant where other dinners were eating outside of our event. We wanted something that was unique for a very special occassion. As soon as we saw the Maxwell Room, we knew we found our venue. Our guest loved the offbeat location, the "speak easy" feel to the room and just as important, we loved it because it was just us. No "no guest" eating just outside our door or hotel guest passing by or high ceiling, sliding panel wall convention setting. Just as important, Alice and her staff were attentive, professional and all the details we discussed prior to our event were executed perfectly. I highly recommend the Maxwell Room if you want a venue that is unique!
