"The venue, the people, the comforting rooms... this venue outdid itself!"

The venue, the people, the comforting rooms... this venue outdid itself! We had a wedding during Covid, and The Riverside Hotel made us feel like there was nothing to worry about and we could have the wedding of our dreams- and we did! Loma Grant was there with us through every step of the way, and she was a comfort when things became stressful. The pastry chef is AMAZING. Every single thing she does is a work of art for the eye and the mouth! Every plate of food was absolutely delicious, and they even gave me a special bride's dinner ;) This venue holds a special place in our hearts and we are forever grateful to have held our wedding at the Riverside Hotel.

We loved being able to get married by the water and having the rooftop as our reception to dance the night away!

We had the most amazing wedding experience at Riverside Hotel! It was a struggle to plan through COVID, but I felt incredibly safe with Riverside and still felt extra special throughout the process. We loved being able to get married by the water and having the rooftop as our reception to dance the night away!

"Choosing the Riverside Hotel was the BEST descision ever!"

Absolutley Amazing! Choosing Riverside Hotel was the best decision ever! When we originally booked (Before COVID) we were working with Cathy. During the COVID chaos Loma took over and was a true blessing from the sky! She went above and beyond, they worked so closely with us and were so kind and accommodating! We had to switch our buffet station to a plated meal and let me tell you the food was amazing! 


The food tasting was wonderful, Loma had set up an entire private room for us all decorated. She was so responsive and professional. Despite our guest count changing and us loosing guests due to COVID she was so quick to bounce back and forth and help us with everything. She would answer my calls, emails, texts even super late at night.


It stormed the day of our wedding and they had to move our entire cocktail hour inside, they did such an amazing job I had no idea everuthing they had to do and it was just so beautifully decorated that guests had no idea it was a last minute change.
Everyone was so sweet and so helpful.We had a blast, Loma took care of everything and she even wrote us a card that she left in our suite with champagne, strawberry covered chocolate and roses.


Chef Sabrina made us an absolutely gorgeous and delicious cake and the Chef was just amazing, everyone enjoyed all the food.
The location is AMAZING, and the picture spots inside and around the hotel are stunning. I highly recommend this venue!
Thank you to all the staff, thank you so Chef Sabrina and thank you to Loma for everything!

"Riverside is the perfect COVID-friendly Venue!"

I was married here on 1.17.2021... Riverside is the perfect COVID-friendly venue for a micro wedding!... the staff is very accommodating and Loma is a dream to work with. She is passionate about marriage and it shows in her execution of a beautiful wedding day.

I recommend the skyline terrace and himmarashee ballroom for the perfect flow from ceremony to cocktail hour to dinner. Everything is located on the 8th floor so guests can be comfortable and not worry about using the elevator or stairs for duration of your special day.
