We cannot speak more highly of our experience at the Sheraton Commander if we tried. In a few words: magical, wow, incredible, organized, efficient. Our families have been staying at the Sheraton Commander for years while we were in college and graduate school so we decided to check it out for our wedding. We met with Judy and were blown away. They operate like a very, very well oil-machined. Judy is professional, flexible, accommodating, and just remarkable! Every question she answered within minutes. If we had an idea, she was flexible and would help brainstorm how we could make it possible. She had us fill out planning forms at periodic intervals to keep us on track with wedding planning. Most importantly she met with us two days before our wedding to go over all our decorations, thank you gifts, etc. All staff was perfect -- flexible on booking rooms, room rates, and room blocks. All of our guests staying in the hotel (and there were a lot!) were just gushing about the service. Our top two priorities were to have everyone we wanted at our wedding and to have a raging dance party. Judy and the Sheraton made this possible by preplating our salads, having the toasts and first dances move smoothly along, and arranging tables such that there was tons of room to dance. And we are so grateful for their list of recommended vendors. We worked with Solare and DJ Martika -- WOW! I am exhausted from all the fun we had and we would get married again at the Sheraton in a heartbeat.

I have to first state that I have not had my wedding reception here, and this is the reason why: Our original wedding date was 6/1/13 but due to a personal situation, we postponed our wedding. Judy was unbelievable to us. She was extremely sensitive and understanding and went as far as to recommend someone who could help us, and not because she was looking to make money from us, but because she truly cared. Fast forward 3 years later and we have a new date set. I immediately e-mailed Judy because I still loved the space and wanted to work with her. Unfortunately, the dates that our church was available did not line up with what was available at the Commander. Judy did everything she could to try and make it work. Although I have yet to be able to use the Commander for events, I would recommend them to anyone because of how above and beyond Judy goes for her clients. She never once made us feel embarrassed about our situation, never pressured us, and never tried taking advantage of us wanting to come back 3 years later.

The venue was incredible. Judy was stupendous, managed everything with pizzazz, and was generally amazing. There were two snafus we ran into, neither of which were caused by the Sheraton Commander; however, they discovered and rectified them before we were even aware there was a potential problem. It was a lovely venue and a fabulous wedding.

This was one of my favorite weddings of all time! I loved the unconventional setup and board games. The ballroom looked absolutely amazing! It was an honor to help you create the wedding of your dreams! Judy

The Sheraton Commander team is TOP NOTCH! If you want to know that everything will be taken care of, you won't have to worry, and your guests will be treated with the utmost service, then look no further. I was blessed to be chosen as the planner for a couple that got married at the Sheraton Commander. My experience with everyone from the front desk (who helped make sure every guest received their welcome letter) to the catering staff (who moved around furniture with me to make everything fit!) to the events team that made me look so good, was simply incredible! I highly recommend that if you are looking for a classy affair, this is the place. I do have to share one comment about Judy who was the main point of contact. Every question, she answered swiftly. Every need, she managed to fill. Every challenge, she handled gracefully. Sometimes, a planner working at a venue that is as seamless as the Commander, can face challenges when doing something that isn't the norm. That did not occur here. The Sheraton Commander TEAM was just that, an extension of me and I, an extension of them. Well done!

We held our wedding reception at the Sheraton Commander in July of 2015. The hotel itself is beautiful and it was a perfect venue for our size (about 100 people). Our guests loved the hotel and the atmosphere in Harvard Square. We can't speak highly enough about Judy Brillhart as the event manager and the rest of her team. She was awesome working with us to plan the reception and had great tips that helped us along the way.

From the beginning Doris and I felt taken care of. The customer service was awesome. Judy's joyful attitude with how she approached her work was so refreshing, and I think kind of rare these days. If anyone I know is looking for a hip Boston area location, a classy, intimate venue with a staff that looks to please the couple getting married then I will highly recommend they talk to Judy!

It was a pleasure to work with you! I wish you and Doris the best! Please do keep in touch!

I had a small wedding ceremony at the Sheraton Commander back in February. Our event coordinator, Judy was so easy to work with and enthusiastic and helpful at every stage. Even when she was unavailable, she was responsive to emails. The venue ended up being exactly what we wanted and needed. Everything was clockwork and flawless. The staff made it seem effortless, and that made our day all the more special.

The Sheraton Commander was the perfect location for our wedding reception this August! Judy Brillhart and her staff did an amazing job, and Judy was wonderful throughout the entire planning process up through the wedding. Whenever other vendors asked where we were having our reception, and we told them the Sheraton, they told us we were in good hands with Judy – and this was so true! She guided us through the process and was so patient and helpful, answering the smallest questions and giving advice when we asked for it. Judy went out of her way to be helpful at so many points, and we are very grateful for her help. She was a great knowledge base for recommendations for other vendors too. The Sheraton itself is a lovely hotel, and the ballrooms are beautiful. The staff was great, and did a perfect job setting up and even helped us take it down, and our guests loved the food. We had our wedding ceremony in Harvard Memorial Church, so we just walked there and took pictures along the way – you can’t beat the location! My husband and I highly recommend this for your reception location – you truly will be in good hands!

The Sheraton Commander was the perfect place for my wedding! From the first meeting my husband and I had with Judy Brillhart (our coordinator/event manager), we knew it was the right choice for us. To start, the hotel itself is beautiful. It's smaller than most, but has charm and lots of vintage details and is also modern and sleek. I cannot say enough about Judy, we couldn't have done it without her. She was such a huge part of the reason we chose the Commander. Again, from our first meeting, she was kind and easy to talk to while being able to answer any questions we gave her. Throughout the process of planning, she answered all calls/e-mails almost immediately, which made my life a lot easier. Anytime we had any sort of issue or special request, Judy's response would be "Okay, that's not a problem. We can do it." I never stressed about any part of the reception because I knew it was in good hands. Every other member of the Commander staff that I (or my family or friends) encountered was just as kind and ready to help. I have to note too that the staff was especially caring towards one of my aunts at my reception who has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. They were attentive to her and made sure she was comfortable throughout the reception, and even gave another aunt (her caretaker) an elevator key to borrow so they wouldn't have to wait for the larger elevator when going to their room. Overall, everything was perfect. The spaces are beautiful, everyone raved about the food, and the people are kind. My husband and I could not be happier!

Working with Judy Brillhart, Alexandra Swenson, Richard Manning, and the entire staff from the Sheraton was a most supreme professional experience. No question was too small for them to answer.
