Married on 09/02/2017
We held our wedding at The Desmond Hotel a couple of weeks ago and were completely blown away by the entire experience. It was everything we wanted and more. From our rehearsal, to the wedding to a ... Read more brunch the day after - they went above and beyond to make sure our special day was everything we dreamed of. Amanda, our sales coordinator, was terrific - we can't say enough about how helpful she was from the day we booked all the way through to following up the day after to make sure we were happy. She was so thorough, organized and patient - even with my one million questions leading up to the event. She made sure that every detail - down to the accent linens and menu placement were perfectly arranged to the way we had discussed in the months leading up. She made us feel as if our wedding was as important to her as it was to us. We had many of our guests stay at the hotel and they were treated wonderfully. Notably, we got lots of compliments on the shuttle service to the airport - everyone found it incredibly easy and helpful. If you're looking for a venue in the Albany region where you can have your guests stay on site and want a terrific experience for all involved, I can't recommend these guys enough!
