The GPH just blew us and our guests away with the reception we held on the rooftop called "The Terrace." The space is a series of unique salons surrounded by a wrap around terrace running the length of the building and fully enclosed in a glass canopy. The city sparkles outside at night with Chrysler Building and skyscaper views. Tons of candles lit the space, lounge seating kept it fresh, and the food got rave reviews. In planning the event, the GPH hospitality staff seems to be trained to just keep saying one word: "Yes." Can we have a non-alcoholic signature drink in addition to the signature cocktail? Yes. Can we have two salumni stations instead of one? Yes. Can staff shell the lobster tails for our guests at the buffet tables? Yes. Instead of 3 GPH desserts, can one dessert be from a specialty ice cream sandwich place we love? Yes. Can our dog stay at the hotel suite with us? Yes. Can we alter the recipes a bit for a couple of dishes? Yes. Can we completely change the proposed menu options? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. It was amazing and absolutely not what you will find at other top NYC venues. Michelle Condon, our Coordinator there, made the stress of planning a wedding there melt away. And everything she promised--EVERYTHING--she came through on.
Ours was a wedding that had a few bumps in the planning because a major storm in late summer caused the reception to have to be rescheduled at the last minute. The GPH and Michelle and her managers asked one question when we called on the morning of the storm in a panic: "What can we do to help?" What followed was perhaps the best customer service we've ever experienced.
The team, the space, the food, even the aroma in the lobby when you enter the building, is chic, hip, a touch edgy, and uber-NYC. We can't wait to find excuses to return in the future.
