The Inn at the Quay is an Amazing Wedding Venue

The Inn at the Quay is a remarkable venue for a Wedding. It is centrally located in Metro Vancouver for in town guests, and has great accommodations for out of town guests. The attention to detail was amazing, right down to the customized ‘do not disturb’ signs that all of our guests staying at the hotel received. The ballroom has a nice layout with a wrap around patio for your guests to enjoy. We opted to have the buffet in a meeting room down the hall and had the bar in the foyer so that guests could mingle and hang out without interrupting the ambience and flow in the ballroom. The catering manager Shayla and the catering staff were amazing and on point, working with our wedding planner to deliver an evening that exceeded our expectations. The food is catered by the Boathouse Restaurant which is an upscale Vancouver restaurant, and it is amazing. Our guests gave us rave reviews over the food and the venue. Finally, surprisingly the venue rental cost was incredibly reasonable, which allowed us to spend more on food. We would highly recommend the Inn at the Quay as a Wedding venue!!

Amazing experience

Shayla and the team at the Inn were wonderful. I don’t think we could have had a better wedding in a more beautiful place. The ceremony space on the rooftop patio was stunning. Thank you all so much!

September 10, 2023 Wedding

We had a phenomenal experience with our wedding at Inn at the Quay. Shayla and Alvaro were very friendly, attentive and responsive through all of our interactions. Alvaro even came in on his day off to make sure everything was planned and in order which was VERY appreciated and above and beyond! We felt like we were in great hands and really loved the peace of mind that provided during such a milestone even in our lives. Thank you for everything, we would recommend this venue, and all of the wonderful staff, in a heart beat 💙!

Exceptional! High quality for great value

We booked the Inn at the Quay for our wedding reception. We ordered the buffet for our wedding and every single guest commented on the high quality of the food. It was truly exceptional! Shayla Harrison & Alvaro Castillo really made our wedding special. We literally could not have pulled it off without them :-) Our room was immaculate, comfortable and had an amazing view of the river. We also did not expect to receive free bubbly and custom door knob hangers to celebrate our nuptials! Such a cute touch!

So glad we got to host our wedding ceremony at Inn at the Quay!

The staff at the Inn at the Quay are super easy to work with. Very professional and accommodating! Particularly Melissa and Shayla. I mainly was in contact with Melissa at first, but I got to meet Melissa and Shayla in person when we went to tour the venue before making our decision on a venue. Super nice and to the point when you ask them questions - no beating around the bush! My husband and I really loved the impression we got from the tour and we're so glad we went with this venue.

We wanted to do a Chinese tea ceremony, wedding ceremony, and dinner reception all in one day and hopefully in a similar location, and Inn at the Quay fulfilled that for us! We got to rent the Hyack room for both the wedding ceremony and dinner reception, and rented the Riverside room for the Chinese tea ceremony. There's such a great view in both rooms! It was super convenient for us to have everything on the same floor.
We also booked a hotel room to be at the venue the night before so we were ready for the big day the next day, as well as a hospitality room for myself and the bridal party to get ready in.

Melissa would always reply to my messages promptly, and be very responsive. She's meticulous and I felt at ease that we got all our bases covered. She responded positively to feedback and replied to our emails on editing the drink tickets to be in the colours of our wedding theme very quickly.

Shayla was the one that helped us during the day of our wedding though. She nailed everything wonderfully despite not being the person I was mainly contacting. On the day of, she thought of everything to make my life easier even when I hadn't thought of it myself! Her experience and knowledge speaks through all the small things and big tasks she got to do for us that added up and really made a difference in making our wedding day better than we had imagined.

Sadly, I didn't get to eat as much of all the great food that was served that night with being the bride and running around greeting all the guests, but we heard nothing but compliments from everyone that attended (particularly the mushroom ravioli!) We're so glad we got to choose the "Create-Your-Own Buffet" package. It fit our needs to have a little bit of everything for everyone!

If you're looking for a venue to hold an intimate wedding while also being flexible and reasonably priced - look no further!

Hotel Ceremony

The hotel was more than accommodating with all of my requests and made our ceremony dreams come true! Very reasonably priced and an overall great experience. Highly recommend.

Absolutely amazing!

Melissa, the catering manager, and all the staff where outstanding. Through covid and planning our wedding twice they helped ease our minds. Allowing for so much flexibility in this uncertain time, along with a welcoming, friendly and supportive attitude. They were almost invisable during our event but present and helping make our day run smoothly

September 21, 2019 Wedding Ceremony

I booked my indoor wedding ceremony in the ballroom of this hotel and my reception next-door (because we could bring our own alcohol there).
I found Melissa, Kendall and Erin all to be fabulous people to work with! Each response to an email was punctual and no one never once made me feel like I hadn’t booked enough. The ballroom was lovely. I also had guests stay at the hotel the night of the wedding and everyone raved about the rooms and the service they received. Thank you so much!!

Amazing service, stress-free day

I can't stress enough how picture-perfect and amazing my wedding day was thanks to the team at Inn at the Quay (particularly Anna Chong and Tracey). Having had given birth in October and then putting together a December wedding, it was imperative that I had as little stress as possible during this process. Anna was very knowledgable and detailed without overwhelming me. She responded very promptly to all of my emails and questions. She covered all of the bases and made sure I was completely happy with everything. She was even caring enough to check up on us and congratulate us during our celebrations. We were also so surprised and grateful for the complimentary champagne and chocolates in our "honeymoon suite" when we went upstairs after the wedding. I loved that the hotel still had their Christmas decorations up in the hotel for our Dec. 30th date and we were able to use all their decorations for a tasteful, colourful theme.

The food was excellent at the wedding. Tracey, the buffet manager fromThe Boathouse, went above and beyond to take care of my partner and I during the reception. She checked on us continually and reassured us that she was there for us no matter what. And she was absolutely true to her word! She has an amazing warmth to her and we felt as if we were simply being pampered by a close friend! We even had many of our guests note how lovely and attentive she was! In fact, ALL the staff who worked our wedding were beyond friendly, helpful, and caring. The spread of food was delicious and although I wish I could've eaten more, I enjoyed every bite. Now if you have the chance, GET THE POUTINE STATION!!!! My friends are STILL talking about the poutine buffet to this day. The fries were so crispy and flavoured with a great seasoning, the variety of extra toppings was so awesome, and my vegetarian friends were really grateful for the mushroom gravy/sauce as an option to the beef gravy.

I cannot say enough amazing things about the staff at Inn at the Quay. It was the perfect venue for our winter wedding and we loved having the option of the balcony/patio for our ceremony or additional pictures. The room was the perfect space for the (roughly) 70 guests and the feedback from my guests was that it was a perfect day. I really feel strongly that I couldn't have had this perfect day without Anna and Tracey. Thank you, ladies! You really went above and beyond my expectations!
