  • Our wedding experience went above and beyond any expectation we had. The entire staff is warm, kind, and professional. Lynne is amazing! She knows her stuff, and is just so wonderful to work with. At the rehearsal and day of, Greg led the charge, kept the whole ceremony and party on track. Kim our server was always there to help us, the beyond happy couple. I cannot stop saying enough great things about our wonderful wedding experience at The Ethan Allen.

  • I used to have this vision of an outdoor, rustic place for my wedding. One of the very first places my husband and I visited was the Ethan Allen Hotel and something about it, just really stood out to us. I was so intrigued about having everything in one central location (ceremony, pictures, reception). We first started the process with Eileen who immediately had us hooked, and then Lynne took over and totally made our dreams come true. I felt like everyday for the month before, Lynne and I would talk and I would never felt overwhelmed- I knew the day would be perfect, AND IT WAS. The staff, the ambiance, the set up of the room (LITERALLY, IT LOOKED LIKE A TOTALLY RUSTIC PLACE- JUST LIKE I WANTED!!!) We worked with the captain Greg for our rehearsal and day of and we can't thank him enough for making sure everything ran smoothly. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect inside- I didn't know how 200+ people would fit in that room, but somehow they did- and it was perfect. They transformed th... Read more

  • My wife and I held our wedding reception in September at the Ethan Allen. We cannot say enough positive things about our experience! Ethan Allen was the first place we looked at and, although we looked at many other venues, we kept comparing them to Ethan Allen. The quality and taste of the food was very important to us. We saw many positive reviews about the food and after our tasting we knew the food would not disappoint. So many of our guests raved about the food. The bakery Ethan Allen uses (Homestyle Desserts in Peekskill, NY) made a gorgeous and delicious cake and our guests were wowed by the Viennese station. The real shining stars were the staff. Lynne, our wedding coordinator, helped us create the celebration of our dreams and was very patient with our numerous questions. We felt that she and the staff really cared and wanted us to have an incredible night. Greg was wonderful that night, he orchestrated the Ethan Allen team and made sure everything ran smoothly and that we ha... Read more

  • I'm so glad we went with the Ethan Allen for our wedding. It has everything you need, a hotel to stay so you don't need to worry about a shuttle, a cute gazebo area to have the ceremony (that can fit a lot more than it looks) and a ballroom for the reception. The cocktail hour was open and there was so much natural light it looked awesome. Lynne was with me every step of the way, especially since she came in halfway through the planning process and took over for Eileen. She did it effortlessly and wonderfully. Greg was our day of coordinator and kept it tight and in control. The entire staff was amazing, so friendly and fun. My husband and I felt so special. Thank you Ethan Allen!!

  • Our wedding was absolutely beautiful. Lynne Coppola and all employees made us feel very special on our wedding day. The food was delicious, the signature drink was a hit, and the cake was delicious. Everything was just how I had imagined it would be.

  • Ethan Allen was the perfect venue for our wedding reception (and rehearsal dinner)!!! Choosing a venue for your wedding can be an extremely daunting task, and we’re so glad that we went with the team at Ethan Allen. Lynn was an absolute pleasure to work with. She responded to my many emails in an extremely timely manner and ensured that all the details regarding our wedding were flawless. Greg was great...he was there throughout both events to ensure that everything was going smoothly. Sunny and her team of servers were phenomenal. Our food was delicious (thanks chef!) and piping hot!! Deanna was a lovely bridal attendant. She ensured that I had everything I needed throughout the night. We got married almost a month ago, and our guests are still raving about their experience at Ethan Allen. Many guests stayed over, and loved the convenience of having their hotel room at the same location as our reception. They also loved utilizing the hotel bar for our after party!!! Ethan... Read more

  • Ethan Allen gave us the absolute best day of our lives. We had the pleasure of working with Joseph and he put all our worries to rest and made sure everything was all set for our day. We met Greg at our ceremony rehearsal and he knew exactly what he was doing and was so on top of things, he kept the wedding on track and we would have been lost without him. The courtyard and the reception hall were both beautiful, the food was delicious (everyone can’t stop talking about how it’s the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding), the staff was professional and great to work with, and you just can’t beat the convenience of ending the night and walking upstairs to your hotel room. We would highly recommend having your wedding at the Ethan Allen Hotel!!

  • Eileen and Lynne were both wonderful to work with during my wife and I's wedding journey at Ethan Allen. I started off working with Eileen. She was amazing and very accommodating to my family and I's cultural needs. Eileen was always on top of her game. Very organized and gotta love her OCD! Unfortunately, Eileen left for another position after serving many wonderful years at Ethan Allen. Lynne came aboard and made the transition experience wonderful! She met with my wife and I to make sure our expectations were surpassed on our wedding day. Lynne was our savior on our wedding day. She made sure everything went smoothly. Everything came out wonderful besides my one friend who brought a guest that wasn't invited. Lynne and her team helped my wife and I relieve any stress that would have came in my way that day.

We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. Thank you Ethan Allen Hotel !!!

  • We needed a venue with hotel accommodations for traveling guests. We wound up getting accommodations a whole lot more! The services of every person I came in contact with over 16 months was exceptional. I can't say enough kind words about Eileen! She is AMAZING! A professional thru and thru. She listened and made suggestions to help make the day wonderful. An event of this magnitude took a lot of planning! You need to get along with the people in charge. That was so easy to do! There were some areas we needed help with selection and others that I was"set in stone" about. Eileen was kind and considerate to every question and concern. Then out of almost 400 guests we had 2 teeny complaints about checking in to hotel (they were so minor--barely count as "complaint"). Over 300 guests raved about the food, service and comfort! They were pleased with location and surprised with food. At first some questioned, "who selected the menu?" as it was not typical wedding food! Well...those guests an... Read more

  • The Ethan Allen Hotel will be the venue for our daughter’s wedding in December but we also (just last week) hosted a Bridal Shower/Tea Party/Brunch for her at the hotel. The Conservatory — a bright, sunny room with French doors opening to the courtyard patio (with lovely gardens and a gazebo) — was the perfect setting for the brunch. Aside from the lovely venue, the service and food (especially the Mimosa bar) were excellent and the food & beverage presentation was lovely. We fully appreciated Eileen’s helpful and creative input on all matters from food to décor and look forward to collaborating with her and the staff again this winter. I cannot say enough good things about Eileen, who is an absolute delight to work with! I highly recommend the Ethan Allen Hotel to anyone who wishes to have a memorable and worry-free event. The staff have it down to an art. The execution is seamless. The décor is classic but fresh and modern. Whatever vision you’re dreaming of for your eve... Read more

  • My mother worked with the EA staff to host my bridal shower and it was absolutely perfect. The staff members were professional and went out of their way to make sure my day went off without a hitch....all while making sure I didn’t lift a finger so that I could enjoy every second of my day. Unforgettable experience, I can’t wait to celebrate my wedding day there!

  • BEST WEDDING EVER!” Was heard thru the night and the very next day! The calls, texts and posts echo the same for days! If you want to hear these words about your wedding then... you have to call Eileen Whitney, Director of Weddings and Special Events at Ethan Allen inn! She leads a team of consumate professionals committed to provide you the best experience ever. Eileen will lead you step by step through the entire process from prep thru the day of the event. She has an ”A” list of excellent local vendors all who are there to serve your event as best as they can. We could not be more pleased, from the rehearsal dinner, to brunch the day after the wedding. Greg the Banquet Manager has superb people managing skills (which I compare to hearding puppies.) from staging the entrance of the bridal party to the big entrance at the reception are top notch! The Bride, had Sunny the dedicated service captain. Sunny ( with a most shining personality to match her name.) stayed with the... Read more

    Thank you Katie & George! Your son's wedding was "Magical." George outdid himself with the lighting and staging. It was truly a "Winter Wonderland." You can add some pictures on Weddingwire, so everyone can see the perfection!! I enjoyed our meetings and I am very sad they are over. Very happy that we will be staying in touch. Thank you for such a beautiful review. WE all loved hosting you and your families. I will always think of you when I light my Christmas Trees. You are both very generous. Our staff thought it was one of the best weddings as well. Everyone was incredibly thoughtful and complimentary! It was our honor and greatest pleasure to serve you, Adrianna & Alex. Wishing you Love, Light & a beautiful Holiday Season! Love, Eileen, Chef Claudio, Gregory, Sunny & the Entire Staff at Ethan Allen Hotel!

  • I thoroughly researched dozens of venues, costs, locations, menus and distance. I created a spreadsheet for my husband and I to go on tours and scout out our favorites. On a whim, I sent a quick email to Ethan Allen saying we were going to be in the area and grabbing a drink in their bar and looking around. Eileen replied and said she would love to meet with us. Grabbed our drink, sat in the lobby for a minute and here comes Eileen. Looking back, I swear she had a halo and wings. We walked around, sat and chatted about everything and signed a contract. All previous preparation for any other venue was gone in a second! The next 7 months, she went above and beyond a hundred times. Our tasting, the food was delish but more, the heartfelt conversations we had with Eileen are really what made this all feel like it was meant to be. My florist and I drove her insane with table design for 3 months and she never lost her cool. She would just say "Jen, I don't think that will work, come up ... Read more

    Jen, this is truly a beautiful, heartfelt review. Thank you. You and I both know that the universe brought us together. It was my honor and greatest pleasure to assist you with your wedding. Thank you for entrusting me with one of the most important days in your life. Your vision as spot on. The room looked amazing as did you. Just perfect!! I am so happy that you loved your wedding day. Chef Claudio always aims to please! I am very happy to hear that his food didn't disappoint, but I am not surprised! Sunny, matches her name! She is a bright light, with a smile that warms your heart. We are blessed that she is part of our growing banquet staff and she takes her responsibility as a "bridal attendant very seriously. Our front desk staff is amazing! I am not sure how they handle the pressure of the job so well, but they certainly do. Kudos to your florist. Your flowers and tables-capes, were stunning. I too, consider you my friend. I look forward to our friendship in the years to come. Wishing you and Jonathan a lifetime of love and happiness. XO Love, Eileen, Chef Claudio, Sunny and the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • My husband and I looked at several venues and really wanted a hotel venue for the convenience of all of our traveling guests. We weren’t impressed by any of the big chain hotel ballroom options as they really felt like conference rooms and some other local competitors felt much more rundown. As soon as we walked in, we were impressed and my husband said to me “you’re sold already” to which I said, “I really like it but not yet.” Then we met Eileen and I was sold. She knew exactly what I was looking for with the big NJ style cocktail hour and she and the chef created a taco bar and mashed potato/French fry bar that I heard were amazing (sadly I didn’t get to taste them myself with how busy we got with talking to our guests). Our guests were all raving about the food, the service and the look of the hotel. Eileen was super honest about what she recommended and what was unnecessary with the packages and really helped me make decisions on just about everything including flowe... Read more

    Thank you, Paige! What a nice review! I am so sorry that you didn't get to eat any of your Taco's or your Sweet Potato Fries & Mashed Potato Bar. Chef Claudio and his team knocked it out of the park! I am glad that Jeffrey got his "Fried Chicken & Waffles." I know he ate them, because I personally handed him a plate of them! Your wedding day was perfect! The weather definitely cooperated and let us plan for an outside ceremony. You & Jeffrey looked amazing on your wedding day. You were so beautiful! We have to take a picture together on your first year anniversary!! I loved our "therapy" sessions! They were always interesting and full of laughs. I love that you are already thinking of a baby shower! (YEAH!) Thank you for entrusting me with one of the most important days of your lives. It was truly my greatest pleasure to assist you. Best wishes for a lifetime full of love and laughter, and the pattering of little feet! XO Love, Eileen, Chef Claudio and the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel!
