I was originally planning to host our wedding reception at a local restaurant, but due to flakiness on their end we decided to go with the Ramada Plaza Minneapolis, since we'd already booked rooms there. This, it turned out, was a much better idea. Our coordinator, Amanda, was very straightforward and helpful, displaying infinite patience with last-minute changes and questions. Her expertise took a lot of stress out of the whole enterprise, as we weren't in the market for any huge productions. Don't let the slightly bleak exterior of Industrial Blvd. put you off -- the interior of the hotel is up-to-date and plush. The space we reserved -- the Itasca Ballroom -- comfortably accommodated our guests and looked welcoming and pleasant with just minimal decorating. We had a cocktail hour in the greenhouse area directly outside the ballroom, and it was an amazing space, especially on a sunny afternoon. I'm pleased to say that the food was excellent and well-received by our guests and that the kitchen was able to accommodate those with special dietary considerations. (The bruchetta appetizers were annihilated in the space of half an hour and none of our friends would stop talking about how good they were!) The staff were clearly old hands at keeping things moving and were considerate and very helpful. My only caveat is that it was a little difficult to meet food minimums as our party was slightly less than a hundred, but I expect that any parties over 120 people wouldn't have that problem. I'd happily recommend the Ramada Plaza for any event, as well as just a decent place to stay the night (the complimentary bridal suite was a real treat).
