The Most Perfect Day!!

My husband and I got married in September at C Hotel and it was the definition of perfect! From our first meeting and introduction with Terry right until check-out the day after, everything they did was amazing. Our wedding coordinator, Lexi, was fantastic to work with and made sure everything looked and felt exactly as we wanted it to! Our day-of coordinator, Cosetta, was fantastic as well - her team made the whole day run as smooth as we could have ever hoped! The food for the evening was provided by C Hotel’s award-winning in-house restaurant, Baci, and everything was delicious! All our meals, including some made with severe dietary restrictions, were amazing! Our DJ, Lennox, was also fantastic, accommodating all requests and keeping the party going right to the end of the night! C Hotel was amazing at putting the whole day together for us, and we can’t thank them enough for a beautiful day!

Great but not AMAZING

We absolutely loved our wedding and it was the perfect day but leading up to the big day there was a serious lack of repose and communication from the venue.
During the tour they tell you it’s all included but I would still highly recommend hiring a day of coordinator.
DJ fully admitted he hit play on a Spotify list so if your looking for transitions between songs, etc hire your own DJ
Food was exactly how our menu tasting was and everyone said how great and plentiful it was!
I would suggest this venue if your looking for a traditional wedding but if your looking to add your own spin, switch up the timeline, etc maybe find somewhere that supports more of your creativity as they were pretty strict with following the same day of plan for all events.

One stop shop

From the very beginning we knew we made the right choice going with C Hotel. Everyone we dealt with was responsive, professional and so, so friendly. Lexi, our coordinator, was always so patient with my endless questions and concerns. Sara, our day of maitre d made the events of the day run so smoothly, from making sure the wedding party was in line and ready to go, to turning on all our the candles in out centerpieces when we completely forgot about them. 100% recommend C Hotel for your wedding!

They helped make our day a success

The Castelli room was perfect for our medium-sized wedding. They helped us make the day as excellent as possible and accommodated our needs. Lexi and Natalie went above and beyond for us.

I loved having both the ceremony and reception in the same place and the staff transformed the room very quickly.

The hotel room was included and made getting ready and cleaning up at the night's end very easy.

One stop shop

Pros; we were able to have all of the services we needed (cake, DJ, meal, bar, linens and centrepieces) taken care of as a part of our Tutta La Vita pkg. The convenience was second to none and our day of coordinator Sara was awesome. Overall everyone had a good time.

Room to improve; chasing down our coordinator Lexi was a bit of a hassle sometimes. For a hotel, you think more people would be available to answer phones. We were not told until the NIGHT OF that the DJ lighting (think strobe lights etc) were EXTRA cost. So we basically danced in the dim light. No glassware after 10pm; serving drinks I’m plastic cups? Kind of tacky.

Had such a wonderful wedding at this venue

Lexi was really helpful with the many questions I've had over the last year!

The venue looked beautiful and our vision came to life. Everything turned out exactly how we wanted it to and we are so thankful and happy we went with the CHotel. The food was also really good, many of our guests commented on it being the best food they have had at a wedding!!

I would recommend this venue to everyone and I would definitely use them for other events as well!!

Absolutely perfect

My coordinator Lexi, and my maître d’, Sara were both absolutely amazing to work with! The c hotel wedding packages makes wedding planning simple and stress free. Our provided dj, Carolina was great and our provided bartender, Hazel was phenomenal! Our ceremony was on the terrace which was absolutely beautiful, with our reception on the dolce rooftop. The rooftop provides such a beautiful and intimate location for a wedding. The greenery walls and Edison lights make for such a picturesque backdrop. Couldn’t be happier with choosing this venue!

Beautiful venue and a great value!

We were so happy with our choice to have our wedding at the C Hotel! All the staff were so helpful and great to work with both leading up to the wedding and the day of the celebration. As well, the value of what you get with their package is absolutely unbeatable! Pretty much everything is included, making planning so easy but still resulting in the wedding of my dreams
