Reviews We Love

  • From the moment we walked in on our first tour, the catering team bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted for the price we were looking for. For finalizing the arrangements, we worked with Sydney who is super bubbly and excited and amazing at keeping everything in order. The food is phenomenal, the waitstaff is extremely courteous and go above and beyond, and the maitre d, Ty is basically Superman. The true hero of our tail, though, is Irma. Irma is one of the “captains” of the waitstaff, and she’s the most amazing woman ever. From the moment we got there for pictures, Irma was there for anything my husband or I needed. The entire team is incredible, with major kudos going to Sydney, Ty, and the amazing Irma!

  • I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all your hard work in making our wedding the best wedding EVER! Ty with his organization and charm, and Irma with her kindness and willingness to address any requests from our guests… just fabulous! They make quite the team! And ladies, my gazillion email questions weekly, thank you for being so patient and always answering with such detail to put my mind at ease… Sam – you took us from start to finish, mapping everything out…thank you so much! You are the BOMB! We are so happy that we chose the Windsor Ballroom. You guys made everything so easy and enjoyable! We have friends and family raving about how much fun they had. “BEST WEDDING EVER” is what everyone has been saying, which makes us feel so blessed and happy!

    — Paul + Brett, Married 11/11/2016
  • I can’t begin to imagine a more terrific outcome of my wedding day without first mentioning how awesome the Windsor staff was. They made the entire weekend so much more than just our wedding. They went above and beyond the call of duty with regards to them hosting our event. The dedication and diligence that Tara and the rest of the staff exuded was second to NONE! I can’t thank you ladies enough for your unparalleled commitment to excellence and for making our wedding the best day of my life.

    — Lacara + Tyree, August 2015
  • From our first visit to the final detailing appointment and finally the big day, Tara and her crew maintained such professionalism, patience, organization, and communication with us. As a bride, you’re always concerned that something will go wrong, something will be forgotten, or an important detail missed. I’m happy to say that our day was flawless and perfect! The newly renovated ballroom was stunning, and the food was AMAZING!

    — Christina + Adam, August 2015
  • From the moment we met Tara, we knew we had to have our wedding there. She is so sweet, caring and never leaves out any details – always right on point. Sitting with Tara and planning the wedding is like sitting with a best friend. She is awesome and I highly recommend the Windsor Ballroom. It’s a must see and must book for all your events. We will definitely be back for sure! Thank you Tara and Windsor Ballroom!

    — Jill, New York, August 2015
  • I had the honor of working with Lindsay, Tara, and Samantha. All three women were wonderful to work with and never failed to make me feel as though I was the only bride they were working with. Samantha was so sweet, yet very professional and business oriented, which is how I am so it gave me a sense of comfort and trust. The day of the wedding I was completely blown away, the ballroom had been transformed into the room I had envisioned. Everything was perfect and I would not have changed a thing. Windsor Ballroom goes over and beyond to ensure everyone is happy and taken care of. If anyone is looking for a venue and is on a budget, this is the place to go. Trust me!

    — Siobhan, June 2015
  • Everything was as wonderful as we had hoped. We thank you again for another great party which is nice to be able to say after having 7-8 different events with you.

    — Lisa + Tom, February 2015
  • Knowing that we would have an amazing team by our side all day on our special day helped make everything even more perfect. We had our ceremony on site as well and most of our guests stayed over. Everything was pulled together so perfectly!! I would recommend the Windsor Ballroom! You will not be disappointed! Best day ever!

    — The O'Rourke's, October 2014
  • We originally chose the Windsor Ballroom because of the price, Tara, the hall and cocktail hour lounge, and because we wanted to have our reception with a hotel. What we got was some of the best service we could have hoped for, and I would and have recommended the Windsor Ballroom to friends and family. I wouldn’t change a thing about the day, the reception, or our selection. I can’t thank them enough.

    — Groom, August 2014
  • Tara and her staff made us feel like the only couple in the world booking their wedding. They took the time to show us around the whole hotel and explained in detail how the ceremony and reception would be set up. They showed us the beautiful gazebo and outdoor garden we could take our pictures in front of, and we did!! They made us feel so comfortable when we made the final decision to book there that we couldn’t wait for the day to come.

    — Anonymous, August 2014
  • We cannot thank you enough for taking such good care of us on our wedding day! You went above and beyond and made our day so special! The ballroom was amazing and everyone kept telling us how great the staff, food, and venue were, and we could not agree more! We will always have amazing memories about our wedding day and will not stop recommending the place! Thank you again!

    — Jeannette + Ross, August 2014
  • You guys did such a terrific job and should be so proud of the wonderful, warm, hard working people that you are! Thank you again for all your kindness and patience. We were so impressed at all the time you took into the little details that made the day complete.

    — Tami, June 2014
  • We had my daughter’s wedding on May 25, 2014. Everything from the staff to the food and décor were wonderful. We also had a breakfast the day after the wedding and that was wonderful as well. The staff was such a pleasure to work with. We had many out of town guest, and I haven’t received any negative comments. Everyone raved about the food, and Tara and the Maitre D’ made everything wonderful along with all the venue staff and hotel staff. It was a wonderful wedding!

    — Denise, Mother of the Bride, May 2014
  • Tara was awesome and was always there for you, she even helped my girls bustle my dress when my buttons went missing. Having my wedding here was the best decision I could have made and I highly recommend Tara and her team.

    — Kristine, April 2014
  • I LOVE THE WINDSOR BALLROOM! It was our first venue we looked at once we got engaged, and it was also the last! Tara and her team are so amazing, helpful, and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The venue is beautiful, and we loved that the reception was in the hotel, making it SO CONVENIENT for our guests.
