Great customer service!
The event itself went perfectly. The food and service was too notch, and we really loved being able to get ready and stay at the hotel, and have everything in the same space. Great experience!
A great experience!
The management team and or Director of Catering Services, Leslie, was amazing! She was consistent in her transparency, patience, and her ability to accommodate and find solutions to changing scenarios through the many correspondences we had with her.
As a collective, ALL of the staff were thoughtful and flexible during the set up, throughout, and after the event. COVID-19 protocols and planning were well thought out and implemented.
Using this space was convenient because we were able to book rooms for the wedding party, family, friends, and the honeymoon suite.
Our families felt welcomed, safe and all of them could also attest to the great service. Everyone kept complementing our space and how classic and elegant everything was.
Everything went great in no small part to their help
The hall we had was more than big enough to fit our relatively small guest list of 75, photo booth, dance floor, and stage for a live band. Our guests were super happy with the dinner the Chelsea prepared, and for us the cost per head with an open bar, quality, and everything else included, we had no regrets. The staff were also all great and professional.
If there was one thing that was a little disappointing was we were told our bar couldn't be in the same room as the band, which was a minor inconvenience, but it created a bit of a divide when people left to get a drink and socialized away from the dance floor for long periods.
Overall though we're super happy with our decision and can't thank Farahna and everyone else at the Chelsea for helping to make our wedding day what it was.
The Perfect Venue for your wedding reception
July 2018 Wedding
Absolutely amazing experience.
Amazing Service at the Chelsea!
Our experience working with Leslie (when we were considering venues) was ultimately the reason we chose the Chelsea over other similar venues we were considering. She was prompt, knowledgeable, and flexible - which we appreciated during Covid. She helped us plan the night of our dreams, down to small details.
The chef went above and beyond to create us a custom menu that all of our guests enjoyed. We received so many compliments on the ambiance and food - which were our two main factors for selecting a venue (outside of service, of course - which the Chelsea knocks out of the park). Speaking of baseball references, as huge baseball fans, we loved some of the unique ideas the chef had to incorporate our passions into a late night buffet.
Sincerely, brides - if you’re looking for a venue that is family friendly, all in one, and where you can guarantee your guests will be treated well from the moment they arrive, consider the Chelsea. Best decision for us, hands down.
Also, the outside ceremony space is a hidden TO treasure!
Thanks Chelsea hotel, chef and especially Leslie!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Outstanding Experience!
The Chelsea Hotel team has provided outstanding experience from the very first moment we talked to the wedding specialist at Canada's Bridal Show. Their expertise and open minded attitude in dealing with a wide range of wedding plans made it so easy for us to organize our fusion wedding.
They provided incredible support when we had to postpone our wedding because of the pandemic. We ended up pushing the date from April to November and their team supported our
project with such a positive and stress-free approach that they made it way easier for us to navigate the unknown. A lockdown was declared a week before our wedding so in the end we couldn't have our wedding at their venue... but they still found a way to make our micro wedding-at-home a very special occasion. The dinner from their Chef was one of the highlights of our day: not only was the food delicious but they went above and beyond to deliver it to us. We truly appreciated their dedication and professionalism and will definitely think of Chelsea Hotel for our future events.
A wonderful and beautiful experience
Everything was perfect, spotless, and just lovely!
This event would certainly have not been possible and we would not have been able to reach the finish line without the patience and hard work of Carly Boyes. We had changes to the plan throughout our planning period, including some last-minute change leading up to the event. Carly was very accommodating, responsive, open to our suggestions and was ready to provide helpful advice and feedback to enhance the evening and ensure our success. She is truly a planner extraordinaire.
Speaking of extraordinary, the menu for the evening was truly well-crafted, and we have the genius of Chef Brian MacAskill to thank for that.
He knew the perfect set to recommend for our special occasion and always connected with us to ensure we are happy. Our guests were just thrilled and could not stop raving about the excellent, delicious food they enjoyed. We received high praise and our guests to this day will not stop talking about how much they enjoyed their meals.
We would also like to thank Eric Frenzel and Michelle for taking care of us day of the event. Chelsea always stood by the culture of empowering employees to wow guests and Eric has show-cased this value. Our decorator forgot to bring the envelope box but Eric came to the rescue and took the initiative to go to Marshalls and purchase an envelope box for us. This speaks volumes! It was something small but meant a lot to us.

The streets and alleys of New Deli crackle and hiss with the kerosene burners and tandoors of street vendors. It was this sound, and the magic of having food prepared right in front of him that first drew Gaurav Kapoor to the culinary arts. Growing up in the heart of India, GK’s mom and grandmother passed to him the craft of grinding together traditional aromatics and spices that had been the base for generations of family recipes.
At age 11, he became responsible for making the chicken for Sunday family dinner, his first opportunity to practice their teachings as well as the techniques he watched so closely at the local stalls. Many years have since passed, but the excitement he felt at this young age still drives GK to explore and share his love of family cuisine. After collegiate culinary training, GK was selected as 1 of 20 to participate in the prestigious Taj hotel’s management training program. There, under the tutelage of top national and expat chefs, he flourished in all areas of traditional and international cuisine.
His travels took him to some of the top kitchens in India including Taj Palace where he helped create the grand banquets that are their hallmark. Eventually Canada called and GK ventured the across the ocean to continue his culinary odyssey in one of the world’s most multicultural cities. Now, as the Executive Chef at Canada’s largest hotel, Gaurav is leading his own brigade. For your special day, he invites you enjoy his perfectly curated wedding menus as you celebrate with your guests. Allow his food, and the heritage and authenticity that only a master can create, to be part of your special day.
