    I can't recommend this venue enough

    The staff at the Gladstone were so accommodating, kind and professional - they really made our day more than perfect. The atmosphere is so cool, the food is absolutely incredible, and they provide all the essentials for the venue (no renting tables, chairs etc!). Try to book the tower suite if you can - it is a beautiful two story apartment style room complete with kitchenette. It was the perfect size to get ready in (4 bridesmaids, two moms and me), we got our hair and makeup done on the first level while my husband got ready on the second level, and we had our first look on the roof!

    They really made our day so stress free, I can't thank everyone at the Gladstone enough.

    Great experience - would recommend 10/10!

    We loved the Gladstone and had a perfect night! It felt like we just showed up and the night went exactly as planned around us. They were flexible when we had a few last minute changes, and completely attentive the day of the wedding. It was perfect!

    A Brilliant Evening. Thank you Gladstone!

    From our wedding coordinator, to our technician, bartenders and servers - everyone was wonderful to work with. Our wedding coordinator was really wonderful to work with, and we always felt like she cared about our experience and our big day. The food was DELICIOUS, our guests raved about how fresh and tasty it was. I recommend this venue for everyone, but especially same sex couples as you can be assured of a very friendly and welcoming experience.

    Heart of Gold

    After a lot of back and forth and mixed reviews, we booked with the Gladstone Hotel for our October 2018 wedding. We both felt SO strongly about the Gladstone being our wedding venue and am SUPER glad we trusted that gut feeling. I cannot recommend the Gladstone enough!

    After a few bumps in the road we were connected with Abbey who managed our wedding post booking. She is amazing, plain and simple. The event planning was well managed and decisions were made with guidance and thoughtful input from Abbey.

    The food was delicious, and our guest were very impressed with the offerings. Having a venue that prioritized local and sustainably sourced foods was very important to my spouse and I. The wine list is great and cocktail selection was impressive. They allow a lot of flexibility in bar selections, has they have many.

    There are many spaces you can book depending on your needs, we had the Full Ballroom and Gallery for our Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception of 100 people. I would say it was comfortable, but cozy. The venue is a diy space, so you can do alot in terms of decor, but you have to do the leg work. The staff is happy to assist, but you need to take the lead in terms of load-in, setup etc.

    They delivered in everything we asked of them and they know how to host one hell of a party!

    10/10, A++, Gold Star

    No words to describe...

    From our first meeting with Sarah ( event coordinator) to the menu tasting to our wedding day, we were beyond impressed with The Gladstone Hotel. First of all it is the coolest venue I looked at but at the same time the most romantic. The staff were professional, always happy to help and warm. The food was delicious and the tower suite a dream! Was truly a perfect day!
