We offer a small room block at a discounted rate to couples hosting their wedding with us in the Main Hall. Most nights require a two night minimum stay. Our hotel rooms typically go on sale about 10 months out. Due to the huge number of inquiries for wedding blocks and the small number of rooms that we have here we simply cannot meet the demand and only provide room blocks to couples hosting their wedding reception at the hotel.

While we would love for you to visit our 6th Floor bar during your visit, unfortunately we do not allow large groups into Lemon’s after 9pm. If you have celebrated your wedding with us and are looking for a spot to continue your party, we do have our Screening Room Bar, which can accommodate up to 75, has a curfew of 2am and can host either a cash bar or hosted open bar for your wedding after party.

Though we accommodate as best we can, the hotel cannot guarantee early check-in, particularly in relation to the lofts, as there are only one of each loft type. We recommend booking for two nights to get ready. Most nights require a two night minimum stay. We do provide a list of services and in room catering for couples getting ready at the hotel that the Event Sales Manager can arrange for you.
