    - Brenda
  • I've never heard so many positive remarks after an event, and most of them related to the venue.
    - Bruce
  • Great environment to host meetings. Very accommodating to our small group (less than 20) for 6 different dates.
    - Cheryl
  • Susan was amazing, so friendly, patient, and accommodating. She was most of all understanding of our Association's needs and the positions we are in being a non-profit. I felt taken care of and cared for, not at all as though I was being "sold to". I greatly appreciated the smooth and easy process.

  • Cheri at the front desk, WOW! You have an asset there that I hope you appreciate to the fullest extent. I had no worries if one of my staff weren't at the registration desk, because Cheri was there to greet them and answer any questions they had. She had a great understanding and knowledge of our event. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND in making sure that me as the coordinator and planner was satisfied and taken care of. I can't thank her enough. I hope she knows how much she is appreciated and how important of a role she plays at the center.
