    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!!

    C Hotel by Carmen’s Group's reply:

    Thank you so much Celina for the feedback! We are honoured to have had your amazing day at our venue! It was our pleasure and hope we can assist you with any future needs. We wish the very best life has to offer you both. Thank you and Congratulations from all of us here at the C Hotel!

    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!

    C Hotel by Carmen’s Group's reply:

    Thank you Alexandra for those kind words! It was our pleasure to host your amazing day and so happy you enjoyed! We are so excited for you both and wish you all the best the future has to offer.

    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

    Thank you so much Emily!
    It is our pleasure and forever grateful that you celebrated your amazing wedding at our venue! We appreciate the time you've taken to leave us an amazing review and hope we have the honour of hosting a future event with you once again.

    Good experience, friendly staff, food was just ok

    My experience with Carmen’s was amazing. The wedding planner Lexi is amazing and is always available to answer any and all questions. The staff on day of had everything the way I wanted it and even went above and beyond to help me fix my centrepieces for me when they didn’t look right. Only issue we had was the food. The food for the price was not worth it. Very dry chicken, some plates where cold and the wait in between courses is just too long. I don’t know if it’s because of my location which was the rooftop so food had to travel up a private lift or if it was because they are a little short staffed. Other then that I mean it was a 7 outta 10 for me which is still amazing quality. Also the hotel itself is very clean and well kept.

    Thank you so much for the review Sheileen and congrats to you both! We are honoured to have hosted your amazing day and hope to have another opportunity in the future to wow you. We wish you both the very best life has to offer. Congratulations!

    Exceeded our expectations!

    Beyond happy with our experience with The C Hotel by Carmen’s! After getting engaged in 2019 and having to replan due to the pandemic my husband and I were finally able to have our wedding April 23rd 2022. From the start we knew we were in good hands! Nicola, Lexi and Terry we super supportive, helpful, understanding,responsive, patient and informative while we were planning. Our maître d Samantha was amazing ensuring the ceremony and reception went smoothly and making sure our room was set up to match what I envisioned! The staff Daniel, Camielle and Haizel were friendly and fantastic ensuring that all of our guests were well taken care of. It was important to my husband and I when planning that we find a venue that not only provided a lot of the services in house (ie: decor, food, bar services,cake etc), but was also affordable and didn’t skimp on quality, and we definitely found that with The C Hotel! The C Hotel staff went above and beyond our expectations and we recieved dozens of compliments on the delicious food from Baci, decor, and overall evening, plus we got to enjoy our complimentary honeymoon suite that evening which is definitely a bonus! We would without a doubt recommend The C Hotel to others, and will definitely be considering holding any future events there as well. We can’t wait to return to The C Hotel to celebrate our anniversaries and enjoy the delicious food Baci has to offer! Thank you so much again to The C Hotel for making our day wonderful! ❤️Savannah & Zachary

    Our wedding dreams come to life!

    My husband and I got engaged and booked with C Hotel in the fall of 2019 (way before COVID), knowing that we always wanted a November 2022 wedding. When the pandemic hit, Nicola and the entire staff at C Hotel were so responsive, patient and helpful. Even with the constant changes and uncertainty of the pandemic up until our wedding on 11/19/21, they were so understanding and put our wants and needs first. It never felt transactional or like they were out to get us, even when the pandemic had hit their industry hard, we still cannot believe we were able to get married!!! We had the most watched needful, safest and maskless wedding and we had lots of dancing, which is something we were afraid we wouldn’t be able to have.

    Nicola was so patient and supportive and was always honest, even when she thought of a more effective way or experience for our guests, she was never shy to speak her mind with us and as a very stressed out bride, I appreciated her wisdom knowledge and wisdom so much.

    Our maître d’ was also fantastic and patient with us, even when we were a large bridal party and running late. She made the night feel smooth and the set up of the venue was PERFECT, just like my Pinterest dreams. It was important for my husband and I to have a venue that provided us with the best experience for our guests (decor, food and unlimited bar service) for the money we were paying. C Hotel was just that perfect balance between the affordability of the most fun guest experience but also it was close enough to outdoor and picturesque sites, so I felt like I was able to get both, but not necessarily sacrificing the guest experience at the reception.

    Lastly, a bonus about getting married at the Hotel vs. the nearby Carmen’s venue is that the Baci restaurant caters the wedding, so the level of the food was fantastic. Cannot wait to go to Baci next year and in the years to come to celebrate our anniversaries!

    At the end of the wedding, we realized that the hotel allowed us to have the perfect sized wedding, even with COVID capacity limits not being a problem for us. The space provides a very intimate setting, so we were able to talk to and share time with all of our guests! It was magical and people appreciated it too!

    Thank you, C Hotel.
