  • Our wedding day reception at the Lancaster Marriott was flawless from start to finish. It was beautifully decorated, well staffed, and the team was organized and performed every request discussed in advance. The team really put a lot of time and effort to make our day perfect. We received so many compliments from guests about the how great the food tasted! A special thank you to Allison Anthony who's responsiveness, dedication, and knowledge made the event flawless.

  • We had an amazing experience with the Marriott. We had our wedding, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place-- so convenient for our guests. Our event planner Alliison went above and beyond at every opportunity. Everything was taken care of with such attention to detail, no minor detail was overlooked. Pure perfection!!! Highly recommend!

  • Jenny Mercandetti and her team of banquet professionals were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I worked banquets for years before planning my own wedding, but had forgotten just how much detail goes into everything. From making sure all of our guests were accommodated in their room block, to putting in last-minute requests to the kitchen for bridal party lunch, Jenny really kept the day running smoothly from start-to-finish. She was so helpful (and reassuring) for me (a very anxious bride) to have worked with. She made suggestions for our menu, songs, room placement, etc. - she walked us through every step and was so patient! The Marriott is a wonderful venue with lots of historic Lancaster charm. We used the Montgomery House for our bridal prep, had our reception in Commonwealth Ballroom, and had a wonderful time introducing our guests to the many nearby spots that are our favorites. Plus, nothing beats being able to walk up to your honeymoon suite in the evening (and enjoy complimentary champagne ... Read more

  • I am a wedding planner in the Berks County area and I can honestly say that my wedding reception at the Marriott was the most wonderful experience of my life. I worked with Jenny Mercandetti and she saw that every detail and idea was executed. The staff at the Marriott is so courteous and professional and I would recommend, and do, to everyone I know that wants to get married in Lancaster. Thank you so much for everything you did for me and my husband. You made our dreams come true!!!

  • We had the absolute BEST experience planning and having our wedding reception at the Marriott in the Heritage ballroom. From the moment we had our initial tour of the venue to the time we checked out of our hotel room the day after our wedding we had all our dreams come true! Jenny (our coordinator) was AMAZING! She was super organized, kind, answered any questions we had in a timely fashion, was upfront with everything, and made our day so smooth and effortless. Her and her staff made our reception absolutely flawless. It was everything we asked for/planned for and then some! She made my husband and I feel so welcome as well as our families as we were planning the reception. We had several out of town guests at our wedding as well. Jenny set up a room block and it was so convenient to have our reception there so our guests could leave the party and go to the bar to continue the evening or right back to their rooms and not worry about driving. We LOVED it! if you are looking for a ve... Read more

  • I have to start by saying that this is the first time I have ever written a review. My daughter and son-in-law recently had their wedding reception at the Penn Square Marriott and I was so taken by our experience there that I felt compelled to write one. We were very fortunate to work with Jenny Mercandetti from the hotel as our Wedding Coordinator. She is extremely friendly and organized and she listens carefully. My daughter was looking for a unique setup and Jenny followed her wishes to a "T". We had a taste testing and the food was really delicious, but I honestly wondered if it would be as tasty at the reception when they were feeding a crowd, but Chef Eric delivered. The food was fabulous and we received many compliments from our guests. Wayne was our bartender and he and the serving staff did a wonderful job as well. When people ask me about my daughter's wedding I tell them that it was the perfect day. Many thanks to Jenny, Eric, Wayne, and the entire staff at the Marr... Read more

  • Working on my wedding with Jenny Mercandetti and the Lancaster Marriott was absolutely wonderful! Jenny was extremely helpful and responsive to my calls and terrific at helping us make decisions regarding our special day. She made me feel like we were so special! The food for our event was fabulous -- our friends are still talking about it and everything that the Marriott did -- the planning, the setup, the food, the service, the lighting, the staff -- was top quality. And our guests raved about their stay there and how hospitable the staff was to their needs. They are the best!

    Jane, Thank you so very much! Your wedding was a dream for us, too! I can still see you dancing on the clouds and all of the small touches that contributed to your overall beautiful theme of your night. Working with you and your husband was such an honor. Your reception was unforgettable! We look forward to hopefully seeing pictures from your wedding in the near future. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your day!

  • Right off the bat - this venue is gorgeous! Your guests will love the grand feeling of this venue, and you will love the flexibility it offers in planning an affordable wedding. It is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Lancaster and is walkable to Central Market, Fulton Theater, and other attractions. But that's only the beginning of the great things about this place. I literally cannot say enough good things about the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square and our AMAZING event coordinator and staff. I contacted them just 7 short months before our May (high wedding season) wedding and was nervous that they'd already be booked - thank goodness they weren't! Jenny was our Event Coordinator and she was, hands down, THE BEST. She was so flexible in working with us to create the unique look and feel we wanted for our wedding, and she saw to literally every detail. She was incredibly organized, friendly, and professional from our very first phone conversation to follow-up it... Read more

    Thank you so very much, Cassie, for all of your comments. Working with you, your fiancé, and your family was such a joy. It's hard to believe that your wedding day was nearly two months ago! We are thrilled that you were so pleased with the service you received and with your overall wedding experience. We sincerely appreciate all of your wonderful feedback and we will always remember your special day. Congratulations to you and Matt!

  • Having our wedding at the Marriott in Lancaster was one of the best decisions we made. The food was amazing. Our contact person Sarah was super helpful during the all the last minute details. The venue itself was beautiful and exactly what I wanted for our 220 person wedding

  • The Lancaster Marriott was the perfect venue for our wedding! The hotel is stunning, but what is better than the hotel is the staff. They made our wedding day perfect! Megan Harbold, our wedding coordinator, was like our guardian angel of weddings. She is very organized and dedicated to her job and made our wedding perfect. Whenever we came across a concern or issue, she found a way to fix it. She made great suggestions, and helped us think of things we didn’t think of. Whenever the wedding stress heightened, a meeting with Megan Harbold from the Marriott would put me at ease. The whole team at the Marriott was awesome and we couldn’t have had a better wedding! I would highly recommend the Marriott as a place to host your perfect day.

  • I had my wedding reception at the Lancaster Marriott. We were very disappointed with the food service at the reception. Dinner service was approximately an hour late and even with the late service about 20-25 guests waited up to additional hour for their food while other guests had undercooked filet mignon. We really tried to plan every detail to make our day perfect but this was a huge let down and it was very distracting to fully enjoy our special day. On a positive note, Jenny is an absolute joy to work with and made the wedding planning up to the day of the event very enjoyable. I felt bad for her that the service staff also let her down on everything she had helped us plan!

  • We held our wedding reception at the Marriott at Penn Square and had a bit of a roller coaster experience. To start, we had a pretty difficult time getting in touch with anyone to even view the venue. Many phone calls and emails went unanswered for several weeks. Once we were actually able to figure out some contacts and view the venue, we loved it. What was offered was an excellent value and Jenny Mercandetti seemed to be easy to work with. Throughout the planning process, Jenny was extremely responsive, helpful, and knowledgable and very easy to work with. We had a VERY happy wedding day, but there are some points that would be worthwhile for future brides and grooms to be aware of. We experienced a significant delay in our dinner service. Salads were on the table for nearly an hour. In fact, our head table was finished with our entrees before any of our other guests had even been served dinner. We made the team aware of this issue, and they were nice enough to extend our receptio... Read more

  • We had our ceremony and reception in the Heritage ballroom at the Lancaster Marriott. We were looking for a location the had everything in one place (ceremony, reception, catering, on-site lodging) and we absolutely found that at the Marriott. The venue is beautiful, if you can get past the carpet (the carpet does not seem to be as loud or as much of a focal point once there's tables/chairs in the room). The staff was great the day of the event, with people checking to make sure everything was ok and going out of their way to make sure everything went well. I felt like royalty! The food was great and I thought we got a good value for the price. When I started the planning process, I worked with Megan at the Marriott. She was great and promptly answer all of my questions. She left a few months into the planning and my wedding was transferred to Marcia. Marcia was also great and really knew what she was doing, however it seemed like she was overseeing several departments and did... Read more

  • We originally wanted an outdoor venue for our wedding, but when we walked into the Marriott and experienced all it had to offer, we were sold on it. It really was a special and gorgeous venue that exceeded our expectations. The Marriott also over delivered on our requests. We asked for several special day of requests and they exceeded each on one! Execution and organization was flawless. We were set up w/ Megan Harbold and when she exited, Sarah Heath took care of us. She was such a fantastic planner and kept things organized that I didnt need to hire a separate day-of planner! There were several times that we had a slight delay in communication, but given all the events that they handled, it was understandable. However most importantly, the week of our wedding all eyes were on us and even the tiniest of details were handled...and exceeded! A special thanks to the lighting team and Michael who was our point of contact for all dinning needs during our reception. Marriott's team was exc... Read more
