All the staff were great, NO issues; Michele was particularly wonderful to deal with. The room fit our needs and the food was excellent. It wasn't our first event there, and it won't be our last.

We had our wedding at William Tell December 8th in the Atrium Room and it was magical! First of all, Michelle was fantastic to work with. She was so helpful through the whole process and extremely responsive to emails. She answered all of my questions, even the ones I didn't know I had. When it came to my room decor and centerpieces Michelle took care of it all. She did a mixture of my ornaments and vases with the floating candles they provide and the room looked fantastic. It was so great to drop all my stuff off and know she was going to take care of it. The room was also all decorated for Christmas and the fireplace in the middle, the loft, and the wood ceilings were just perfect. There is a beautiful gazebo too that makes great pictures. We took pictures at the end of the night when it started snowing! It couldn't have been more perfect. My wedding day was truly care free because I knew everything was taken care of. When we got there at the beginning of cocktail hour they forgot to put out the vases for the bouquets, but I had my bridesmaid ask one of the coordinators and they took care of it immediately. Instead of a cake we opted for the sweet table and did a small nothing bundt cake for us to cut instead. We got SO many compliments on the appetizers, the food (we did family style), the sweet table, and the late night snack (mac and cheese bar!). My sister had her wedding at this venue two years ago in the ballroom, and it was just as fantastic. The convenience of this venue is worth it all. The banquet hall attached to the hotel with a bar that is open until 2:00am...you can't beat it! For a beautiful banquet hall that won't break the bank, William Tell is the way to go. Stop thinking about it and go see Michelle and book the Atrium room! And then invite me because I want to go to another wedding there!!!

We worked with Michelle, she was absolutely amazing, very prompt, straight forward and kind. She made the planning as easy as it could be and was happy to jump on a call the moment we needed it. Her emails were detailed and didn't leave you questioning what was left to do. We had the atrium room, it was spacious and grand giving all my guests a place where they were comfortable.

We absolutely loved the William Tell for our wedding day! When we originally booked our wedding in August of 2015, we were working with Jill B. She unfortunately left the William Tell a few months later and my husband and I were a bit nervous about transitioning to a new rep. Thankfully for us, Jill G. did an amazing job of taking over and getting to know everything little aspect of our wedding to make us feel comfortable moving forward. She answered all of my millions of random little questions I had and even came in to sit in a meeting with my day-of-coordinators to answer their questions. They made sure we were greatly accommodated on the wedding day. We were able to bring all of our decorations and centerpieces in on the day before the wedding even though there was an event in our room that night. They let us use an empty hotel room on the first floor to store it all, saving us time on our actual wedding day. We were given the honeymoon suite which was large and gave us ample room for hair and makeup. The food was delicious and we are still getting compliments about the beef and mashed potatoes. And the Atrium Room was as gorgeous as it was the day we walked in for the first time. The fireplace and loft added such a great touch that our friends and family can't stop talking about them! We absolutely recommend the William Tell if you're looking for a gorgeous and large venue!
