Wedding Ceremonies and Guests

“Words cannot express our deepest gratitude to you and the entire staff of the Mayflower Park Hotel for the genuine hospitality you showed us and all of our friends and family who were guests of your hotel during our wedding celebration weekend Upon choosing which downtown hotel was going to be the official hotel for our wedding guests, we felt anxiety in hoping that we chose someplace that did not simply exude excellence in its name or décor but that the underlying foundation of its excellence was in the service. We couldn’t be more pleased with the decision we made in choosing The Mayflower Park Hotel as our wedding’s host hotel.”

Ronald and Bobby Bryant


“Thank you for your fabulous planning and organization of my wedding reception.  We couldn’t have asked for a better time.  Over and over again, we heard the phrase, “this is the nicest wedding we have been to!” The wait staff was efficient and unobtrusive, the food was delicious and both the Fireside Room and our room for the night were beautiful.  I can’t wait to celebrate our one year anniversary at the Mayflower Park Hotel.”

Meeting Planners

“Our party was wonderful! Just fantastic. Couldn't have been better. The hotel looked absolutely beautiful. Every single person on your staff was excellent at their job. The food was ALL delicious. Everyone raved about it. The set up of the mezzanine very nice for our group, so cozy with the nice lighting, fireplace, piano, Christmas tree and all the sparkly decorations, fancy linens, etc. etc. Lovely!!!

Mayflower Park hits just the right note of being welcoming and friendly, but elegant without being stuffy or stand-offish. I just love the place, honestly. The three couples who got rooms for the night were all exceptionally pleased as well.”

“We convened a group of 20 national religious leaders and government officials at your facility.  Of course, our concern was to ensure the utmost quality of service and comfort for our guests.  We couldn’t be more pleased! The ambiance of the Mayflower was perfect-everything from the food service to the guest room accommodations was tastefully and exceptionally well done.  As a professional meeting planner, I have to say the Mayflower Park is on my list of exceptional places to stay and I will certainly tell all my colleagues!
