  • I have to say my husband and I looked high and low for the perfect venue to have our wedding and nothing compares to what you get at Ethan Allen for the money you pay. The entire process was so simple. From our first meeting with Eileen prior to the Bridal show that is hosted at Ethan Allen we knew that this was our venue. Eileen is a straight shooter and there is no hidden anything. She lays everything out on the table for you and you can take it or leave it. Well we took it! Our wedding was on 10/15/16 we had the most perfect weather and everything from soup to nuts was great. All of our guests raved about the food and the great time they had. We certainly could not have done it without the help of Eileen and all of the fabulous staff at Ethan Allen. Jason and I thank you so very very much!! We could not have asked for a better wedding reception!

    Carrie & Jason, it was our honor and pleasure to host your beautiful Fall wedding. From the first time we met, to the wedding day, you two had me full of laughter. It was so much fun getting to not only know you, but love you. Your wedding day was a 10! The weather was perfect, the DRESS was to die for and the reception was full of love, laughter and lots of dancing. You two definitely don't do anything small. The electric guitar and the baby grand piano playing at the cocktail hour, was a beautiful touch to an already elegant atmosphere. The special act with dancers and electric guitar was a great way to entertain your guests while settling in for an amazing, fun-filled, off the hook, wedding reception! You two know how to throw a party! I am looking forward to a life long friendship. Wishing you both a beautiful life together. XO Eileen, Jennifer and the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • Two years ago we walked into the Ethan Allen and absolutely knew we wanted to get married there, especially after we met Eileen!!!! Whenever I wanted to meet with Eileen to go over details about our wedding, or emailed her with loads of questions, Eileen always took the time out to answer our questions and make us feel important! She really goes out of her way to make sure things are perfect, and adds the little extras to make your day unique! Our wedding day was gorgeous, and I can say it was one of the BEST days of my life!!!! Everything was perfect! Not to mention- the atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the staff, and the rooms are all wonderful!!!!!! Highly and totally recommend the Ethan Allen for any event!!!!! Also, there are many surrounding landscapes that are very pretty for pictures too!

    Kelly & Justin, it was my great pleasure to assist you with your wedding. Kelly, the amount of personal details you put into your wedding day was so beautiful. From the cocktail hour into the reception, the decor screamed "Fall in Love" ... :) It was truly an honor and pleasure to work with you two. I will miss our emails and conversations. Looking forward to seeing you both back for your 1 year anniversary. I am pretty sure Chef Claudio will come up with some great brunch items for your stay! Hmm.. maybe his famous Pork Chop?? Wishing you two a beautiful future full of love, light and some little miracles along the way! XO Eileen & the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • I started our venue search with a detailed spreadsheet with LOTS of venues that looked good to us and offered what we were looking for in our price range. We visited Ethan Allen first... booked it that night without hesitation! Words cannot describe how amazing Ethan Allen Hotel is. The venue is just stunning! However, Eileen and her staff is what makes this place AMAZING! From the very first night we meant Eileen, we knew we wanted to work with her. She has this amazing ability to make you feel comfortable and like you've been friends for ages even though she just met you. Throughout the entire process, she never once made us feel like we were bothering her with our endless list of questions. All her suggestions and recommendations were ON POINT! Ladies and gents, she knows what she's doing! We all deserve a wonderful wedding - and our wedding was absolutely flawless and perfect, thanks to Ethan Allen! I honestly could not have asked for a better day even though it was rainy an... Read more

  • My advice for any couple looking for a great wedding venue would be to have Eileen and her team do your wedding. We knew immediately that this was the place for us. So classy yet understated elegance. Eileen and her team could not have been easier to work with. For the price of the reception you actually get a wedding planner!! Eileen is on top of things and can make suggestions to help plan. The food is excellent, the restrooms are immaculate, the staff is courteous and professional. The chef has made a name for himself in the Danbury area. Eileen truly cares about each of her brides and goes above and beyond to make her day the best day ever. It shows in the every wedding she does. Planning was a breeze. Eileen has room drawing and questions to help you get started. She responds to email and call immediately. This is the place to go!!!!!

    Terry, it was my pleasure to work with Jackie, Dave, you and Don to present a beautiful, elegant wedding! The hotel was so full of love and light with so many beautiful people coming together to celebrate LOVE! Jackie and Dave are two very special people who hold a very dear place in my heart. Chef Claudio certainly takes great pride in his food. He certainly has made a great name for himself in Western Connecticut! We are very proud to have him as our Executive Chef! He works hard and his food is always on point! We thank you for entrusting us with your baby girls wedding! We are beyond blessed to have had the honor to serve you. XO Love, Eileen, Chef Claudio & the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • We were truly amazing at how beautiful and modern the Hotel was. The staff was prompt,attentive and eager to make sure all our needs were met during the cocktail hour/reception. Eileen made planning fun and easy and took care of everything for us. She even suprised us with little details during our wedding day to ensure our day was magical! I can't thank them enough for all their hard work to guarantee our day was perfect!!!

    Hi Whitney & Adam, Thank you for your wonderful review. Your wedding was magical. My favorite part of the evening was when Adam surprised you and sang that beautiful song to you. I was tearing up, and so was the majority of my staff! Chef Claudio & I love to delight and surprise our couples on their wedding day with little details that they didn't know where coming! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. XO Love, Eileen, Chef Claudio, Jennifer & the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • The Ethan Allen Hotel was a perfect place to have our wedding reception. From the day we met Eileen, we knew that we wanted to work with the EAH to plan our perfect wedding. She was so responsive, answered all of my questions months in advance of the wedding, and took care of EVERY detail on the day of the wedding including working with our other vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly. My husband is from Wisconsin and we were having a lot of guests travel from far away, but The Ethan Allen conveniently allowed us to block rooms far in advance so that our guests could plan stay. So many guests thanked us for having the reception at the hotel since no transportation logistics were necessary. The cocktail hour was beautiful and the hotel has a great outdoor patio that is perfect for nice weather. There is a lot of natural light and beautiful french doors as you walk out into the courtyard. The cocktail hour was also customized for us with food that wasn't even on the set menu (my hu...

    Abby & Bryce, thank you for such an incredible review. From the first time we met, it was an instant connection. It didn't take long for me to know that you two were very special. Your love for each other is so apparent. Those big, beautiful smiles that you wear when you look at each other, are worth a million dollars! We love that you were happy with your Cheese Curds!!! Chef Claudio is always happy to customize a menu to fit special requests! Especially when it is so appreciated! I want to you know just how special you are! I am sure you don't remember this, but I will never forget it! At one point in the evening, I asked you both how everything was. Your response was "It's Perfect," then Bryce grabbed my hand and asked me "Now, what can we do to make your evening better?" My answer was "Nothing, you just did!" I don't think any couple has ever asked me that before! You two really are so very kind! It was such an honor and a great pleasure get to know you, work with you and love you! You both hold a very special place in my heart. Thank you for entrusting me with one of the most important days of your life! Wishing you a life full of love, light and many miracles! XO

  • The Ethan Allen Hotel was the first and only venue we looked at. It was love at first sight! We met Eileen, the Director of Catering, and she showed us around and made us feel so comfortable. It was like we had known her for years! Minutes after our first visit we knew this was the venue for us and we booked. Everything was amazing from the first time we stepped foot into the hotel all the way through leaving as a married couple. Eileen is the most amazing person! She was always available to help us out and was only an email or phone call away. She was so flexible and met with us several times throughout the wedding planning process. We would always go in with a list of questions and come out with all of our questions answered as well as several good ideas for our special day. I could not have asked for a better experience. The entire wedding including the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and the reception were exactly as we had pictured it! Eileen took our vision and made it co... Read more

    Paul & Jordan ... Thank you for such a lovely review. I am really flattered that you only went to our venue and booked your wedding at first site! One stop shopping is what we offer, plus a whole lot more. I have to say, your wedding was magical. From the moment you two walked down the isle, to the last dance, love filled the room. It was our pleasure to serve you. Chef Claudio & his kitchen staff took special care in making your food. Jennifer, Jeffrey & the staff at Ethan Allen were thrilled to be able to execute your wedding to your specifications. As for me, it was my honor and greatest pleasure to work with you and develop a beautiful friendship. Wishing you both a lifetime of love, light, laughter & many more beautiful moments. Eileen & the entire staff at EAH. XO

  • Eileen, Jennifer and the entire Ethan Allen staff were phenomenal to work with! My husband, mother and I randomly popped in to see the space with no intention of booking anything, but after meeting with Eileen we knew right away that she would be the perfect person to make our wedding exactly what we wanted. She was honest, thorough, and knowledgeable from the start. Both her and Jennifer were unbelievably attentive and thorough in every encounter. My husband and I knew nothing about the wedding reception process and are not naturally "party planners" so their knowledge and expertise was greatly appreciated! Eileen encouraged us to make the space our own and think outside the box. On the day of, the event space could not have looked more magnificent! Ethan Allen helped us to transform the banquet hall space into an elegant, rustic wine bar feel. We, along with all our guests, were blown away! EVERY staff member of the hotel was lovely from start to finish! Thank you so much for ma... Read more

    Marci & Matt ... It was such a great pleasure working with you. I was always happy to see you and looked forward to our meetings. The vision of a "wine bar" at the not so "rustic" but "elegant" Ethan Allen Hotel was your mission and you accomplished it! It was beyond beautiful and you turned the ballroom into one of the most beautiful weddings I have had to pleasure of helping plan. I will miss our meetings, but I know we will continue to be friends. Thank you for entrusting us with your wedding. It was our honor and great pleasure! Many wishes for a live time of love & happiness. Love, Eileen, Jennifer & the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel. XO

  • I don't even know where to start. Don't even bother looking at other venues. Eileen goes above and beyond her job description. She responded to my emails in lightening fast fashion. She eased any anxiety or worries. This was a stress free wedding and I am a type A personality, have anxiety, and have celiac disease. I was probably calmer on my wedding day than I am on a normal day! As mentioned, I have celiac disease (as well as my mother and some family members and friends) and when I first met Eileen she assured me she was "crazy" when it came to allergies and it would be no problem to hold a 100% gluten free wedding. She was the only event coordinator I talked to that knew what eating gluten free actually meant and assured me it would be no problem to hold a 100% gluten free wedding. It was not possible in most other places I went to. They were not willing to take the time to research and find alternatives like Eileen did. When we came for our tasting she assured me about the pre... Read more

    Thank you Danielle! Chef Claudio & I will miss working with you! It was such a pleasure to be able to make you so happy. WE definitely take allergies seriously and we were so pleased to be able to provide you with a 100% gluten free wedding! Your 206 guests didn't have any idea that they were eating gluten free meals! Chef Claudio out did himself! Best wishes for a beautiful life together. Love & happiness always! xo Eileen, Chef Claudio and the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • If you are planning a wedding or any kind of celebration, you will be happy in choosing the Ethan Allen Hotel. From the beginning, everyone we dealt with was attentive and professional. They also took care of important details I didn't think to consider, since there was so much to do, which was a big help. Everything ran smoothly from the planning to the rehearsal to our wedding day. Beginning with our first meeting with Eileen, their amazing Catering Manager, to the front desk staff who made everyone feel welcome, to the chef who made sure that the food was delicious, to the catering staff, every part of the experience was positive. Everyone had a great time, including the bride (me) and groom, which I've heard doesn't always happen. Many thanks to everyone who helped make our special day the best it could be!

    Thank you Cathy for your beautiful review. It was such a pleasure working with you and Thomas. Your wedding was so full of love and happiness. So many beautiful moments between you and Thomas! I really hope your photographer captured how beautiful your day was. The ceremony was one of my all time favorites. It was perfectly "you and Thomas." Our staff is still talking about how much love was in the room. Chef Claudio was happy to make your dinner menu to your specifications. The fried plantains were a real hit! Looking forward to seeing you and Thomas on your 1st Anniversary! Best wishes for beautiful life together. Love, Eileen, Chef Claudio, and the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • Ethan Allen Hotel was the first venue we looked at to host the most important day of our lives and the last. When walking through the hotel (which is absolutely GORGEOUS) with Eileen we immediately knew this was the place for us. One of the first comments that Eileen made was that she treats every single wedding she does as if it was her own daughter's. I don't know of many other people in the wedding business who would not only say this, but PROVE it! She did just what she said. She went above and beyond, making sure my fiancé and I were happy and comfortable with every decision that was made. She promptly answered countless emails and questions ranging from where to put out the place cards, to organizing the order of events for the reception. Not only is she unbelievable at her job, but an even more amazing person. She truly cares about you as a couple and wants nothing more than to make your wedding day perfect. She was extremely accommodating to my father who has MS and is in a wh... Read more

    Ashley & Brian, It was not only my pleasure, but our honor to assist you with your wedding. It was definitely EPIC! You both looked amazing, but Ashley ... you took my breath away. I loved the energy of the day and the incredible pouring out of love for you two. I am so happy that our Chef, Claudio, made a special trip to your table so he could make sure he congratulated you two in person. He was delighted to meet your parents as well. He even asked your dad how he would like his prime rib cooked! Genesis Events kept your dance floor packed all night. Some of the pictures from Picture This of Danbury are hysterical. You can surely see that everyone had the time of their lives, because Anthony captured them perfectly. Your bouquets were gorgeous! Rita's Floral Touch is amazing and always on point! The energy was infectious. Even our Banquet Manager, Jennifer, had a great time running your wedding. I was so happy to read your review. It made me so proud that our team at Ethan Allen was able to give you some beautiful memories. We look forward to having you back for your 1st year Anniversary! Wishing you love, light, and a few little miracles! Much love, Eileen, Chef Claudio, Jennifer & the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel.

  • Eileen and her team at Ethan Allen Hotel ran my wedding on April 23, 2016. They did such an amazing job that I really don't know where to start. Eileen is absolutely the most amazing person to work with. From the very first time my husband and I met with her, we knew she was something special. Never once did I have any problems or concerns during the planning process. Eileen was always available for last minute meetings, always responded to emails quickly, and kept me sane through this process. She is extremely knowledgable and really values customer service. The day of the wedding, Eileen checked in with me first thing in the morning and was present all day to set up, run us through the day's events and cater to every need myself and my family had. She is truly exceptional at what she does. As for the venue itself, I knew when I walked in that my wedding had to be there. It is beautifully renovated, and the service is phenomenal.

  • We had our wedding reception at the Ethan Allen Hotel and had a wonderful experience. Their wedding coordinator, Eileen, is great to work with! She truly puts all her effort into each and every wedding she plans and helped guide us in our choices of food, room layout, etc. The little details she thinks of make the world of difference, like having an extra just wine and beer bar at the cocktail hour to avoid long lines at the standard open bar. Our guests were talking about the amazing food the Ethan Allen serves for weeks, especially the very impressive dessert bar. Finally the hotel itself provided a beautiful backdrop for our reception. From the big arched windows to the beautiful chandeliers, it creates a very elegant feel. It was also very convenient to have the hotel rooms and hotel bar for our guests to enjoy following our Saturday evening reception. It felt like we had the entire hotel just for our wedding which was a really fun experience. We definitely recommend the Ethan Alle... Read more
