    Amazing staff, and fantastic venue at a great price

    Not only do they provide all the furniture, which looks great, but the way their pricing work is easy to understand and doesn’t have any bad surprises.

    We liked their brick walls and big windows so much we actually took our official wedding pictures there as well, so we didn’t have to deal with the Toronto traffic.

    The food was excellent (do try their tasting menu in advance to check for yourself).It’s downtown Toronto, which made it easy for our guests to go to and from. They offer open bar packages, which our guests appreciated.

    It really checked all the boxes for us- I highly recommend it

    The Best Venue Staff Ever

    Rish and Richard are not only the most chill and fun people to meet and plan with, but they also take the stress off any venue concerns. Hotel Ocho has an fun staff, great chef, and amazing coordinators for events. Our wedding was a blast and it’s definitely because of the venue atmosphere. If you want your wedding to be a non-traditional party, this is your spot.

    Gorgeous lofty interior space also!

    Beautiful Wedding Venue! 100% recommend!

    from our first visit to see the venue,a year in advance, to the early hours of the morning after our Wedding day, the staff at Hotel Ocho went above and beyond making our special day one we will never ever forget!. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for that perfect rustic, create your own wedding vision, and the staff will guide you right along and help you make your vision come true! Rish and Richard throughout our planning process, made everything so easy, and were so helpful and efficient in answering any of our questions. Hotel Ocho is such a beautiful venue and I am forever grateful for their hospitality, professionalism and for the memories they helped create.

    Hotel Ocho was the perfect venue for our wedding. Great for those who want to stray from the typical venue/hall type of wedding reception. Great food and you can’t beat the location in downtown Toronto. Our main event contacts Rish and Richard were fantastic to work with.

    Fantastic Experience

    Hotel Ocho has been absolutely wonderful to work with. We originally booked my daughters wedding in May 2020 and had to cancel and rebook twice due to covid. Due to the rescheduling Hotel Ocho even returned half of the money I had sent them which they did not have to do. Rish was super easy to work with, very responsive and always made time for us. The staff is all easy going, the room is beautiful and the food was delicious. The evening was perfect. Thank you Rish and the team for making my daughter`s wedding a perfect event.

    Amazing venue!

    We were able to plan our wedding in 4.5 months primarily due to the luck we had finding availability at Hotel Ocho.

    VENUE
    The space was perfect for our size of wedding with ~80 guests (reception only). Not having a wedding planner and trying to stick to a budget, we had a lot of questions prior to signing the contract with the Hotel. We worked closely with Rish, who knew the answer to every question that we had - from the space, to logistics, to set-up, to the contract and cost. Our confidence to get married in a short amount of time was largely due to the Rish’s ability to help us. From the cocktail hour, to dinner to dancing, there was ample space for everyone. Since we had more talkers than dancers attend the wedding, the amount of seating area was very much appreciated by the guests.

    FOOD
    We had nothing but positive compliments about the dinner menu. Everyone was very pleased with their selection and that it was the perfect amount of food to last them the entire night. The staff were also very accommodating to those who had food allergies/restrictions. The food menu and bar menu is very reasonably priced, especially for the quality of food that you get.

    STAFF
    The evening was seamless, largely due to the staff working that night - whether it was the bar tender, server, Rish/Tyson (event coordinator and GM). They coordinated beautifully to make sure every guest was taken care of. With the set-up of our reception, it may have looked as though it would be difficult to weave through the tables, but the staff managed to do this with no problems. The entire evening (and throughout the planning process with Rish), the staff was very calm and were able to help with anything that we needed, including set-up on the day of, A/V and lighting as we didn’t have a DJ, and even with cleaning up at the end of the night and clearing out.

    Overall, we were very happy with the decision to have our wedding at Hotel Ocho. There are many wedding venues in Toronto to choose from, but from our research, this was the only venue that was truly genuine about making sure that our day would be something special!

    Incredible venue and staff

    Hotel Ocho was a fantastic wedding venue that made our dream wedding possible! The event managers Rish and Richard were absolutely wonderful to work with. Rish made the planning so easy, was quick to respond to e-mails and was very flexible throughout the entire process. Richard was there for the entire evening of our wedding and made sure everything went smoothly. The staff were wonderful, food served in good time and was DELICIOUS (we had so many great compliments on the food). We maxed out the capacity as a wedding venue (130 guests for sit down dinner), which I was skeptical about judging by the size of the venue upon booking. I was nervous that the space would feel crammed, even though Rish assured me otherwise and of course, she was right. There was plenty of space on the main floor during cocktail hour and the seating arrangement upstairs allowed us enough room to walk between tables during dinner greeting our guests. The fact that the venue is a boutique hotel was an added bonus, allowing guests from out of town to stay for the evening and giving us the space to relax getting ready before the event and stumble our way to our room at the end of the evening. Nothing but high praise for Hotel Ocho!

    Amazing Venue!!!

    Hotel Ocho was absolutely the perfect venue for our wedding. We had 75 guests and it was exactly the right size. The food was great, with many options to suit a variety of budgets/dietary needs. The staff were incredible as well, so friendly, professional and seriously went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. Best of all they are very laid back and easy to work with while still meeting any request we had. We loved having the hotel rooms available to guests to book, it made everything so easy with getting ready ahead of time and being able to crash at the end of the night. I cannot recommend Hotel Ocho enough, do not hesitate to book your wedding there!!

    Easy to make something special

    Probably one of the best value-for-money things we did for our wedding. For the cost of a minimum spend, you get their staff, services, tables, chairs, all of it. No organizing rentals or caterers. The food was great, the space was beautiful and unique, and right downtown.

    It's a very small staff that are all wearing multiple hats, so it can be a bit hard to get hold of them, but there is so much LESS you need to organize with Ocho. They do a lot of the work for you, and the smaller staff means they're pretty flexible and willing to help you customize.

    I highly, highly recommend having your wedding here.
