“We got married on November 22, 2013 at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel and we both highly recommend having your wedding reception there. We also got married on the premises and it was gorgeous and perfect. After having several family members who got married at the Grand, we knew it was the perfect place. Not only is the food great, but everything is beautiful and so convenient. It was great that our guests could simply go upstairs after the party! Tara was our coordinator and she was great to work with! Everything went off without a hitch and we have the Poughkeepsie Grand staff to thank!”
Amy & Mike

The food/service was excellent. I will highly recommend Poughkeepsie Grand to others for their parties in the future!”

“In the almost 10 days since the wedding all we have heard from people is how great the food and service was how much of a good time they had. Jenelle and I wouldn’t have changed anything about the wedding. It was perfect. Everything went smoothly and no mishaps. Every little thing we worried about was handled by the staff at The Grand. Our wedding at The Grand was an answer to our prayers, it was a fairytale wedding on a budget that we could afford.”

I must say that one of the most frequent comments has been about the staff and how exceptional everyone found them to be!

“I was able to enjoy every minute of the big day because everything ran like clockwork! Beautiful! I was in awe of the table centerpieces. We made our own, but the Poughkeepsie Team truly put the finishing touches! Everything was put together even better than I could have dreamed!

Jessie & Brandon


“Everything from the rehearsal to the end of the reception was so well orchestrated and professionally done, yet maintained the elegance and beauty of a fairytale wedding. We cannot tell you how many of our family and friends contacted us after the wedding to compliment Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel for the excellent job they did. Many said it was one of the best weddings they have ever attended. So let me thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making Shannon and Seamus’ dream wedding come true.”

Betty & George Cacchione Jr.


“We cannot say more about the menu, quality of food and the service of your wait staff. Some of our family and friends work in major advertising agencies and take clients to the best NY restaurants, and some are in the food industry. They were amazed at your raw bar and the quality and quantity of seafood ti offered. They were also very impressed with the preparation of all the food for a large group not only in the taste but in the presentation. The Viennese Table was just beautiful and the pastries o it divine. The wait staff made our guests feel at home and provided great service. We will recommend your hotel to our friends and family who will be planning a wedding or other event. A toast to you all!”

Mr. & Mrs. Robert Rosen


“We could not possibly have asked for better service. In fact, a very large number of our guests made a point of commenting to us later that evening and the next morning how impressed they were with the exceptional service by all the waiters. Your staff made them feel like they were VIP’s for the night, not just another attendee at another wedding reception. I can honestly say that we never encountered a member of your staff who was not extremely pleasant and helpful. My daughter’s dream really did come true that evening.”
