We Love Hearing From You!

“I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful everything was and how many favorable comments we had about being the best reception EVER!  Many people commented on the room with the exceptional view.  Some even saw the fireworks display at Fifth Third Park! … There were comments on the wonderful food, cake and room decorations!”

“I don’t even know where to start with the University Club.  Their service was top of the line; they were on top of keeping our guests satisfied all night long.  We had 220 guests, with the thought we might have up to 300.  Parking is free at the University Club, and it overlooks Calder Plaza downtown GR, which is GORGEOUS!  The venue felt very “homey” and was absolutely perfect.”

“I cannot say enough great comments about my experience with the University Club.  Every little request I made to make my day special was accommodated and the staff is top notch.  I was really impressed with their responsiveness during the whole planning process and patience with a high maintenance bride.”

“I cannot say enough great things about the University Club!  My reception was perfect and I owe it to Katie and the rest of the staff at the University Club.  I loved the view and the food was great!!  The best part of our reception was watching the fireworks go off while my husband and I were dancing (fireworks were from a baseball game and we could see them clearly from the University Club).  The whole night was perfect.”

“We loved using the University Club for our reception.  They were very helpful in setting things up and working with what we wanted to do and our budget.  The day of went VERY smoothly and I have heard great things from our guests about the University Club…. and you can’t beat the view!”

“The University Club was the perfect place for my reception.  Not only does it have unmatched views of downtown Grand Rapids, the staff and their service was beyond belief.  I had guests tell me they were treated like royalty and had the best service they’d ever had at a wedding!”
