  • We started our journey with the staff long before the pandemic shit downs planning our wedding. Amidst all the complications every person we worked with, spoke to and interacted with made the doubly stressful time the easiest, and most pleasant experience we could have ever wished for! The wedding was beautiful, the staff was excited and happy for us, to help and went ABOVE AND BEYOND what we hoped. Thank you all for the amazing experience!! 10/5 will be recommending any future brides to work with you!

  • To give some background with our situation, we have been together now for over 12 years. We wanted to have our wedding date on the actual anniversary of our first date, amongst other reasons, so we decided to plan a short notice wedding within 6 weeks. We thought we had the venue decided and quickly realized that venue didn’t have the space we needed to make it work, so we were on the scramble. And then we met our savior, an angel by the name of Gina Whitehead. She was an absolute blessing! From the first conversation we had with her, she was calming, organized and very knowledgeable! We called on a Sunday morning spoke with Gina and was able to come view the room that same day, at that time we locked in the room and were well on our way. Gina not only ended up being a great venue coordinator for us, who knew everything in and out, from top to bottom with the process, she was so good that she basically felt like our own personal wedding planner. She was able to work with all our vend... Read more

  • Choosing a place to have your reception is easily one of the most important parts of the wedding because you are going to spend the majority of your day there. That being said, if you are even considering going to the Holiday Inn at Jordan Creek just do yourself a favor and book it already. It's going to be tough to find a place with this great of service, food, location, and amenities at this price point. I could write a novel on everything I liked about our experience here but I will try to be to the point: PLANNING & SET-UP: - The planning process with this venue was absolutely fantastic and it was solely because of the Head Events Executive Gina. From our first tour to our final payment after the wedding, Gina was so wonderful to work with. She was very flexible with our wants and needs, was very honest and open with everything, and just went above and beyond what we needed. It felt like planning a Wedding with a someone who truly cared that your Wedding would be special, so n... Read more

  • We toured eleven possible venues to host our daughter's wedding, and it was easy to see that Event Coordinator Gina and the Johnny's Holiday Inn and Suite's stood out. Our actual experience at there this past weekend couldn't have been more true! From set up, to communication, to each staff member, to the incredible food, bartenders, servers, and excellence in hosting our MANY out of state guests we can't say enough wonderful things. Family and friends are still talking about how excellent the meal was, how personable the staff was, and how great it was to have the reception and overnight option in the same location. One additional thing we would like to share is that when the bride and bridesmaids came down the elevator to leave for the church it began to pour like you won't believe. Out of nowhere several staff members appeared, took our keys, moved our cars, held umbrellas and dresses, and got everyone loaded safely and dry! It was just outstanding and made any stress disappear! We ... Read more

  • Gina was extremely easy to work with and very accommodating with everything. She didn't miss a beat and went over and above our expectations. I have, and will continue to, recommend HER and her expertise to anyone and everyone. She paid such close attention to detail and actually made what could have been a stressful event so very relaxed and enjoyable. The amount of compliments we received were astronomical....literally on every detail. She was present for our entire event and paid such close attention to our needs. Gina Whitehead is PHENOMENAL!!! I rave about her and our experience every chance I get. I seriously can't say enough about her and our wonderful experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you Gina!

  • Going thru this experience, like all other engaged couples, it’s very stressing, time consuming, and difficult to plan for a reception area to meet all our accommodations. I cannot speak enough good praise about our experience with Gina Whitehead and her team at the Holiday Inn. The reception area with about 250-275 guests that we had was ample space and the place was exceptionally clean and plenty of room for dance floor and a photo booth we had! One big compliment that I can give was to Gina and her staff. Everyone called us by name, which made us feel so important, and usually doing the menu on that large of a scale is difficult because of the quantity and it being a plated dinner. Everyone was served almost immediately, it was hot and the quality was as excellent as if it was just Jenny and I going out for dinner. I had dozens of texts after the reception saying the food was the best they had ever had at a wedding! This was our worry and they nailed it out of the park! The ... Read more

  • We highly recommend Gina Whitehead and the Holiday Inn and Suites- Jordan Creek for a reception or event venue! Gina was very fun to work with and always had prompt answers to any questions we had during our wedding planning. She was always willing to help every step of the way leading up and even on the day of our event. She was professional, fun and super out going and truly made our wedding reception planning process fun and enjoyable. Each time we met with her she had everything ready to go, whether it be for catering or hall planning meetings. The catering staff at Johnny's was amazing as well! We heard only great things about our menu and the meals that were served! Thank you Gina for all you have done! We will never forget our wedding reception at the Holiday Inn and Suites- Jordan Creek!

    Hi Elizabeth! Thank you so much for the kind words! It was a pleasure working with you and Jordan over the last year. Thank you again for letting us be a small part of your big day! Best wishes from all of us here at Johnny's Grand Ballroom!

  • My husband and I were down to two reception venues, and I am SO glad that we chose The Holiday Inn! Right as soon as we signed with them, nearly all the stress of the reception went away! Their wedding coordinator, Gina, was fabulous to work with! We could tell right away that she loved her job and knew what she was talking about; she definitely has experience in wedding receptions! Gina was so great about all of our questions along the way, responded quickly, accommodated our special requests, and really made the reception the least of our worries. And oh my goodness - the catering from Johnny's Italian Steakhouse is AMAZING! All of our guests are still raving about the delicious food that we chose for the reception. We didn't have to worry about set up, tear down, or clean up - the hotel takes care of all of that for you! Choosing this hotel was probably the best choice we made out of all of the wedding decisions we had to make!!

  • There are so many things to account for and worry about with wedding planning. In our case it was the rehearsal dinner and, planning it in West Des Moines from the Chicago suburbs could have made it that much worse. Turns out, we didn’t have to worry about much at all! From the day we first visited the Holiday Inn facility to the actual event six months later, Gina Whitehead made us feel completely at ease about everything. She provided us all the details and then, without ever stopping with her positive and infectious personality, did it again when we lost them the first time. She went out of her way to accommodate our crazy ideas (we did an “At the Movies” theme) and found lots of ways to enhance our theme. Still, when you are five hours away, nervousness creeps in. When we arrived, she was ready for us and the plan was executed flawlessly. And while I’d like to give Gina all the credit, her staff was pretty darn impressive as well. The set-up, the service, and the tear down ... Read more

  • Gina (special event coordinator) and her staff at Holiday Inn Jordan Creek were absolutely superb. From our very first interactions and meeting with her to tour the reception space, Gina was so friendly, approachable, accommodating, and offered such helpful advice with regard to other vendors we would need (i.e. we were unsure which companies to book for our flowers/decor and limo and she had some great local info). With all the details and last-minute changes that come with planning a wedding, Gina always handled our questions and changes with so much poise, professionalism, and reassurance. She and her staff were an incredible help with reception set-up and tear-down. Her staff even placed all of our flowers/decor items on a couple of tables at the entrance to the ballroom to make packing up the next morning a breeze - which gave us more quality time to spend with our families the day after. We opted to rent a private room for breakfast at Johnny's the next morning to say goodbye to ... Read more
