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.Sent on 06/07/2018
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.
