We had a wedding here and we're more than pleased. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food was amazing. The cake was from an outside source. The only thing that needed improvement was the coffee.

Offers excellent rooms for large or small group training sessions. Excellent onsite catering, and sound systems support. One of the few, and best places to host organizational events.
