  • You get what you pay for! A beautiful view and excellent service. No complaints here. Many guests have told me how amazing dinner was and how that’s unusual as most dinners are cold and bland, the States room chef is fantadtic. Brittany is an awesome coordinator. She is very responsive and day of she is calm and makes sure your day is perfect.

  • The State Room was the exact venue we imagined. We visited 10+ venues in the greater Boston area knowing that we wanted an indoor venue with beautiful views of either the water or the city-scape. We did our due diligence but once we saw the State Room, we knew it was the one. As others have stated, the views are unmatched. Their professionalism through the sales process, gave us 100% confidence we were in good hands up to and through our wedding day. Another deciding factor was that the cost fell into our perfect median in comparison to venues of the same measure. The reason for this positive review is because of the follow-through to achieve our dream wedding. No detail was left uncovered. Food was very important to us, and the menu and the quality of the food is again unmatched in comparison to other venues and is on par with great restaurants around Boston. We loved it at the tasting, but what is most impressive was their ability to execute for a reception of 175 guests, with th... Read more

  • We had a phenomenal experience working with the State Room for our wedding this spring! Our coordinator, Kristen, was so accommodating and really took the time to make sure every detail we prioritized came to life during our event. We served the Indian Fusion menu, and we were originally skeptical about the kitchen's ability to execute Indian food for a primarily Indian event. When we went in for the tasting, we were blown away (our parents were, too!), and we got tons of rave reviews about the food at the wedding. The bridal attendant (whose services are included as part of your booking) was actually amazing to have. She made sure we (the couple) got a chance to taste all of the food, directed us to where we needed to be, and helped corral our belongings at the end of the night. We were planning on outdoor photos before the reception, but the weather really didn't cooperate, so they let us come in early during setup and take our wedding party portraits in the venue! Also, we brought... Read more

  • As soon we decided we wanted to get married in the city of Boston, I knew that the State Room was the only venue I wanted. The team made it easy from start to finish planning our day. The view from the Great Room is reason enough to book this venue. You don't even need serious decor or florals to add to the space because your guests will be too busy looking out the windows to notice anything else. The food was incredible and the space was so comfortable for our 180 guests. Brittany Collins was our coordinator and she made the night run seamlessly. You will not regret booking this venue!

    Thank you, Bridget! We are thrilled that you and your guests loved the view of Boston from State Room. Brittany and the entire team loved being part of your day.

  • Wow, we had an amazing wedding at The State Room. We toured two of Longwood’s venues and selected The State Room- Harborside Salons for our 85 person wedding on July 27, 2019. We selected this venue for the drop- dead views, professionalism, and fantastic food and beverage choices. Brittany and the team were truly the best throughout the entire process. She kept us updated on any changes, they were even going through a lobby renovation at the time. She made us feel comfortable and informed. The tasting confirmed we chose the right place and as we got closer to the date, Brittany made all the last minute details easy. She communicated with all our vendors and executed drop-off and pick-ups. On the wedding day, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Our attendant made sure we had everything we could possibly need and Brittany kept the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception on time and it all flowed flawlessly. We can’t even count the amount of compliments we received on the venu... Read more

  • I’ll just start off with saying WHAT A VIEW! The State Room was the first venue we looked at as we started the wedding planning process and the rest of the venues we looked at just couldn’t compare. While we ended up having our wedding in the Great Room the other event spaces at the State Room were just as beautiful and had views to knock your socks off. Once we decided on the State Room, Carolyn walked us through the entire process and made every decision for us super easy. She was very attentive to our needs and helped us have the wedding of our dreams. The food was incredible. It was near impossible to narrow down the hors d’oeuvres down to 6 from their large list as each one we tried was better than the last. The entrees were to die for as well and cooked to perfection. We also really liked the options that were available for the wedding cake that were outside the regular plain flavors as we ended up choosing the raspberry lemonade. Carolyn and the rest of the State Ro... Read more

    Thank you, James! We love hearing that you enjoyed the food. We tend to have the same problem when picking favorites. We hope you get the chance to enjoy State Room again soon.

  • We had a tremendous experience at the State Room for our wedding in August, 2018. Once we visited we knew immediately that this was where we wanted to get married, and the experience, from planning to the night of, completely validated that decision. Kristen was our event planner, and did a wonderful job of responding to our (many) questions and requests, and from the tasting to the night of was there for us. The food was delicious, the cake was delicious, the recommended vendors were excellent, and we can't imagine having gotten married anywhere else.

  • Our wedding at the State Room was absolute perfection. Planning our wedding was so easy and fun; Brittany Marsh was our event specialist and she was amazing. She helped our wedding vision come to life with all her organizing and logistics coordinating, and guided us patiently through all the decisions we needed to make. Brittany and the staff worked so well with all our vendors and we felt so relaxed and confident knowing that the State Room was coordinating everyone- we did not worry about it at all! The State Room and Longwood Venues is incredibly well run, evidenced by their billing and event planning documents, communication of all staff, and day-of coordination. We and our guests were so impressed with everything during the evening- the friendliness and helpfulness of staff, the delicious food and drink, the beauty of the view and the high quality and well arranged furniture and rental products. I want to emphasize how delicious the food was, at our tasting we were impressed and... Read more

  • We LOVED our wedding at the State Room! We do not have enough wonderful things to say about this venue. The professionalism of each staff member, the food, the drinks - everything was amazing! Our wedding coordinator, Kristen, made us feel at ease and her timely responses were appreciated. She and her team successfully executed our vision and everything was perfect! The views of Boston were incredible and definitely impressed all of our guests. After just a few weeks, our guests continue to talk about the incredible time they had at our wedding! We couldn't be more happy of how everything turned out - we planned our wedding in 6 months and we do not have one regret! Thank you to the State Room for all of their assistance in making our special day one we will never forget. We highly recommend the State Room for any couple looking to have their wedding in Boston!

  • We knew from the moment we saw it that we wanted to have our reception at The State Room. It is beautiful venue on the 33rd floor with a gorgeous view of Boston (Faneuil Hall, North End, Hancock Tower). We had a relatively large wedding and this was the perfect space (I believe we had the largest ballroom). Carolyn was our coordinator and was accommodating and helpful from the first moment. We both have busy work schedules and she was able to schedule our tasting at a time that worked for us. She was responsive to e-mails with every one of our questions and requests. The wedding day itself was perfect. The set-up was beautiful (we added some uplighting from our DJ and that was it) and the food was incredible. In terms of their coordination with other vendors--everything was seamless and we didn't really have to think about it. Carolyn and her staff were great to work with and the space was perfect. All of our guests had an amazing time. I can't recommend them hi... Read more

  • We selected the State Room for our wedding roughly 2 years in advance and could't be happier with the decision. We knew right away this was where we wanted to get married and the staff were so great in making sure it was everything we had imagined. We hosted the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in the great room. We were so happy with how smoothly everything flowed and how professional and quick the staff were at transforming the space. We had the pleasure of working with Lauren as our event coordinator, and she was so great. Thank you for making sure our wedding spectacular.

  • We had the most amazing wedding. It went better than we could have imagined and still feels like it was all a dream. The State Room / Longwood are in the business of weddings and it shows, everything ran so smoothly. Our day of venue coordinator Carolyn Longden was super friendly, answered all my questions during the tasting/planning meeting and made sure everything was perfect on the day. Sure it's one of the more expensive venues in the city...but come on, that view ! We're still receiving lots of compliments on the food which is great! The cocktail apps were substantive and the menu is quite good. There is only one bar set up though, so the lines during cocktail hour were a bit long (even with 2 bartenders) which I was concerned about in advance, but I suppose it is not atypical for any wedding. They take care of so much, that it feels like you're hardly planing anything. It's almost too easy. I think this made me a bit unsettled during the process, I didn't know if we should be ...

  • The venue is modern, and the views are breathtaking. We got married in the Harborside room in July 2018, and everything went very smoothly. Additionally, many of our guests loved the room/views, and the food was delicious (the dinner meals were huge, and everyone raved about the mac and cheese balls). Kristen, our coordinator, was very responsive, helpful, and professional the whole time we were planning our wedding. The one thing I will say that was frustrating during the planning process is that the State Room upcharges for literally everything. We knew that going in, so we were mindful during our planning process, but it could still be frustrating when you're in the thick of wedding planning and juggling so many moving parts. However, like I said, Kristen was great and she knew we had a budget in mind, and she helped us get creative to make sure we stayed as much within it as possible. She was very professional when our parents had extra requests as well. Parking can also get a bit ... Read more

  • From the first day we visited the State Room to the wedding day, we experienced top-notch service. We worked with Eleni initially. She helped us find the right room and menu options within our budget. Once we settled on the Great Room, we were introduced to our coordinator, Carolyn. She made the entire wedding planning process manageable and enjoyable. If I did not have Carolyn, I would have had to hire a planner. She ensured that every detail was in order, walked me through each step of the planning process and gave me honest feedback when I asked for her opinion. She was a major key to helping us have the most amazing wedding day. My top priority in choosing a venue was food. The State Room offers the kind of quality and variety we wanted. Our friends and family continue to tell us how amazing the food was six months after the wedding! In addition to the food, we were concerned with finding a location that could accommodate both the ceremony and reception. Because it was a winter... Read more
