    Wedding Block

    We used PGH to book a wedding block for our June 2018 destination wedding in BC. We communicated with the sales manager, Peter Nemeth via email; he was very thorough and friendly while setting up the hotel block for our guests. We were given a fair rate for the time of the year and quality of the hotel. Peter repeatedly followed up via email and phone before and after the wedding block time.

    During our stay everyone was so curteous and welcoming. We definitely felt special with all the warm wedding greetings and the surprise gifts from the hotel! We had a very comfortable stay in our room. The proximity to the airport was great and the hotel shuttle was very convenient. We would definitely recommend this hotel for out of town wedding guests.

    It was definitely a Five Star Experience!

    From the planning stage down to the big day, the Pacific Gateway Team made everything as smooth as possible! Communication was great. Kam was very responsive, professional, easy to talk to and such a nice person! It goes to the entire staff. Everyone was just great. We feel taken care of. Guests had a great time! The backyard and the patio has a perfect ambiance for an intimate private ceremony and cocktails. Food was great! I highly recommend Pacific Gateway Hotel to anyone looking for a venue for a wedding or other events. Price is very reasonable. With the quality of service and food, you will definitely get more than what you'll pay for! Thanks to Pacific Gateway Hotel for making our event a dream come true!
