  • Our experience with Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront was PERFECT from start to finish. When we started our search, we had 3 other venue tours lined up and Holiday Inn/The Anchorage was our first tour. Stephanie, the Catering Manager, did such a phenomenal job with our tour and spent several hours with us sitting down and answering all questions/concerns and walking us through the venue and all of our options. I ask a LOT of questions, and Stephanie was so patient and understanding with us as we started the journey of planning a wedding. We connected with her so well and she did such an amazing job that we cancelled all 3 of our other tours on the way home and called her to tell her we would be booking with her! Stephanie went above and beyond to be with me every step of the way and calm my stress/nerves/concerns. If we had to do this again 1,000 times, we would pick her EVERY SINGLE TIME! The venue was perfect for our wedding. Having everything in one place was EXTREMELY convenient. We... Read more

  • Words can not express our thanks to you and the Staff of the Holiday Inn Riverfront during our wedding weekend (wedding was June 2019). Stephanie was amazing to work with. Planning an out of state wedding,,,, well she made it so easy! Stephanie thought about things we would not have even thought about asking. The planning of the wedding you knew what we would need/and even things we didn't know we wanted. The rehearsal dinner was amazing and all of the staff were so nice and accommodating . The morning of the wedding was amazing. It was so nice that we didn't have to set up the venue, they did an awesome job and it was even better design than we could have imagined. The rooms you arranged for the girls and guys to get ready in were so great. During the wedding reception every thing was perfect. The food and the staff were amazing. Everyone was so nice and always asking if we needed anything. We are so grateful the staff for making our special day more imagine... Read more

  • Stephanie was incredible to work with from day 1. She is very good at communication and the day of the wedding she was spectacular. She made sure all of our last minute change were done quickly and anytime we needed anything, she would be there when we turned around to help. The space is incredible and having the patio on the river was a huge hit! We highly recommend getting married or having an event here! Ask for Stephanie!

  • I cannot begin to explain how happy I am that we had our reception at the Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront. Stephanie, the Catering Sales Manager, was absolutely fantastic! She was enthusiastic, organized, detail-oriented and full of creative ideas and recommendations. Stephanie responded to emails in minutes and consistently reassured me that she had everything under control... and she could not have been more right! When I arrived at the venue, she had decorated everything beautifully. She remained at the venue the entire night and made sure that everything ran smoothly. All of the staff were friendly, accommodating and professional. I would definitely recommended booking your reception at the Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront!

  • My oh my. This venue is lovely. We booked our wedding 2 years in advance. Through that time we went through 3 coordinators. Which was the unfortunate part, worrying whether or not we'd have someone on our wedding day. We ended up with the best coordinator we could have ever asked for! Stephanie was so quick to all my emails and she was a delight on our special day. She made sure everything ran smoothly. She also was so helpful in setting up the dining room. Oh and she made my grooms night, during one of our meetings Justin mentioned how he loved the beer riverwest stein. On the day it was like the bartender was a mind reader. He kept handing him a beer just as he was finishing the other one. It made him so very happy! The hotel was clean and a lovely place to have our wedding. Having the outdoor patio was perfect to cool off when dancing and for others to chit chat. The food was great! The service was great! We loved having our wedding there.

    Thank you so much for your review! I am so glad I got to be a part of making your dream wedding become a reality. You and Justin are such an amazing couple and your family and friends are so sweet and loving. Thank you again for letting me celebrate with the two of you! Steph

  • I got married on 8/5 at the Holiday Inn Milwaukee River Front. We held our Wedding Ceremony and Reception here, From the servers, to those at the front desk to Michael (the best hotel wedding contact ever). The entire event was flawless and amazing. The rooms were well kept, the communication was great, the staff went above and beyond to make this day extra special. Michael, the wedding director, is AMAZING! He was always responsive to my e-mails, he always got back in a timely manner and was thorough in his answers, his suggestions were great and he really made the event a huge success! I highly recommend Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront for a wedding, party or just a stay! You'll be welcomed and treated well!!

  • Everyone told us planning a wedding was stressful and they added that planning a long-distance wedding was that multiplied by 10. While it was difficult at times, working with Michael and the folks at the Holiday Inn Milwaukee Riverfront was not a source of that stress. Working with Michael was more than we could have hoped for with his generous hospitality, calming demeanor, and accommodating approach. And while Michael was our main point-of-contact, every single person we dealt with at the hotel was approachable, patient, and willing to help from the dining manager, to the front desk specialists, and to Brian at the bar (who was especially candid and honest). As a Marquette couple now living on the West Coast, it was a goal of both of ours to have a “Marquette” wedding. When we visited the Holiday Inn, Michael showed us his space. He knew we were also looking elsewhere, but Michael never once tried to push the hard sell and instead advised us on other venues to also look at rem... Read more

  • My wedding was last weekend at this venue. We had the ceremony and the reception here. The Estabrook ballroom is gorgeous, overlooking the Estabrook parkway and Milwaukee river. It was the perfect space for both. From the beginning Mike was amazing with helping us plan. He guided us through all of the little details and promptly answered all of our questions. Any details we missed were also covered and I knew going in we were going to be taken well care of. The staff was accommodating, friendly, and attentive. The whole day's timeline went smooth and I was checked on few times during the events to make sure I was happy with them. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue. The wedding packages are a great value and we did not need to bring in any other outside vendors except for a photographer and DJ.

  • Michael Wicinski, wedding specialist at the Holiday Inn Riverfront, is so great to work with. He was always quick to answer any questions we had about anything from accommodations to wedding day details. He is definitely well organized, flexible, and present on the day of the event. The venue was beautiful and the food outstanding. Michael was willing to try to make anything happen to make the day special. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone!!

  • The wedding coordinator, Michael, was fantastic! He helped us out tremendously. His design, food options, price, quality of food, and look of venue was on point. The only thing I would say is that they need to put more effort in putting the wedding decor up that was provided by wedding party. I have seen other hotels and country clubs that are more willing to decorate than having bride and family decorate venue on day of.
