  • The Desmond Hotel did not disappoint! We recently hosted our wedding of approximately 92 people at the Desmond and it was a wonderful experience. The food was amazing. Several of our guests told us that the food served at the cocktail hour was the best they’ve had at a wedding. From start to finish the Desmond was terrific. Working with Karen for the initial planning and right up to our wedding day was a pleasure. She was always available to answer questions and happily offered advice to help make our day what we had envisioned. The banquet managers, Carol is wonderful by the way, were helpful and provided superior service. I would not think twice about having another event at the Desmond and we look forward to returning for our one year anniversary!

  • We had a great time at The Desmond on November 4, 2017! They pay attention to the smallest detail. Because of a last minute change to the number of people attending our wedding they moved the ceremony from the main ballroom to the conservatory which is a beautiful room that has beautiful natural light due to all of the windows. The sunshine was a nice added touch. The service provided is second to none and no request is ever too much to ask. Alyssa was so helpful and did a lot to get rid of any anxiety leading up to the wedding day and the day of the ceremony. We would definitely recommend The Desmond for any event.

  • Do yourself a favor... if you're thinking about booking The Desmond for your wedding, do it NOW. They were phenomenal at every single step of the process. It happened to be our first venue tour, and Kevin really wowed us. We visited a few other places to make sure we were certain, but every other place paled in comparison to The Desmond. Everything from the food to the service to the team were top notch, and they take care of so many details for you. We had centerpieces, uplighting, the cake (and they even add a chocolate covered strawberry to the plate!), linens, table settings, honeymoon suite included in our package. They also made sure we had clear expectations and the contract and plan outline were intricate. You name it... we had nothing to worry about. Kevin (THE MAN), Alyssa, the banquet managers Andy and Kevin, our server Carol, and everyone in between gave us nothing but the best. The food was delicious, and during our tasting, we talked with Kevin for more than an hour. ... Read more

  • We are having our wedding and reception there next year but so far Kevin has been outstanding with helping and always being there for any questions that I may have. The place is beautiful and I can't wait to marry my best friend next year.

  • Our wedding guests were from all over, so almost everyone stayed at the Desmond. They helped us coordinate a welcome event on Friday night, an after party on the patio the night of the wedding, and a brunch following the wedding. Samantha was great to work with, and everything ran very smoothly even when we had to change locations for one event at the last minute because of rain. They also helped us coordinate the transportation for everyone to the wedding - the only complaint for that was that the buses were a little early to the wedding. Overall, the Desmond and Samantha were fantastic.

  • We worked with Karen Eubanks, and she was responsive to every one of our needs throughout the planning process. She offered advice and opinions, and was very willing to make changes to accommodate or wishes. We were always confident that she had everything under control. The wedding was everything we hoped for and more! The food was delicious and the service top notch, and the room looked absolutely gorgeous! I will most definitely recommend The Desmond to my friends and family. We could not have asked for more from the staff that worked with us during the weekend, especially Karen and the banquet managers Kevin and Brince. I have attached a pictures of the setup of the ceremony and the setup of the ballroom.

  • I was married at the Phoenixville Foundry and initially when I began my search for our room block, I wanted a hotel as close as possible to the venue. After visiting the Desmond, I realized those extra few minutes of travel time didn't matter at all. They were very accommodating and handled our large group (we had 62 rooms booked!) with ease and everyone said they had a great stay. Also offering to pick guests up for free at the Paoli train station was also super helpful as well as accommodating so many early check-ins. They also coordinated our shuttles for no extra charge which was a huge help so I did not have to deal with the vendor. We also hosted our after party on the back deck which was great and a day-after brunch in the garden room. Both events went so smoothly! They were extremely responsive. I was probably the most hands-on bride that didn't even host her actual wedding at the Desmond, but they really were phenomenal to work with.

  • The Desmond was very accomodating with everything we needed. They provided shuttles and we had an awesome breakfast on Sunday for our guests after the wedding. The rooms were all very nice and it had a homey feel to it. The restaurants and bars were all very good and made for a fun place to hang out after the wedding! Overall, we had a great experiece. If you are getting married anywhere close to Malvern, choose the Desmond!

  • We worked with Kevin and Alyssa through the Desmond. I cannot count how many e-mails were sent back and forth and every time there was a speedy response. They helped us plan our day down to the set up and everything. We were set to have an outdoor ceremony but a massive storm rolled in about 30 minutes before. The staff there quickly turned the ballroom over into a ceremony space blocking off the tables and helped setting it up into a special space. They then were able to just as quickly reset the ballroom into a masterpiece of a reception. Any request that I made was had. They even set up a private space on their deck for our after party with food displayed. Truly a magical evening.

  • We used the Desmond for a block of 65 wedding guest rooms and a brunch on Sunday. Their staff are friendly, always willing to help. It was a great place to stay for out of town guests for our wedding in Valley Forge.

  • We used the Desmond Hotel for a variety of wedding related events and they were absolutely wonderful from beginning to end! We had our rehearsal dinner on Friday night and used the Desmond shuttles to go to and from our rehearsal venue and then had an open bar and light snacks after the rehearsal at the Desmond on the back deck, everything was beautiful and no issues. Saturday the bride and groom got ready in separate suites at the hotel and the staff was so accommodating and the rooms were the perfect size for a medium size bridal party to get ready in. I worked directly with the Desmond to organize shuttles for our bridal party and the wedding guests from the hotel to the wedding venue, they found vendors that were extremely reasonable. Sunday morning we hosted a buffet brunch for our guests in the garden room and the staff decorated the room so beautifully and the food was great quality!
