I worked with Anthony, the social sales manager, at the Inn at Great Neck to reserve the room block for my wedding guests and the space to host a morning-after brunch. Anthony was so easy to work with. He and Michael, the sales coordinator, were always helpful, professional, and courteous. They were quick to respond to my phone calls and emails and capably handled all of my (many) requests.
I made a serious error in judgment during the planning process and Anthony saved the day! I had previously secured a smaller room at the Inn for Sunday brunch, but when A LOT more guests than we had anticipated confirmed they would attend, Anthony came up with a quick solution and relieved me of having to find an entirely different venue for the brunch less than 2 weeks ahead of my wedding! Rather than a room that could maybe hold 30, he sectioned off an area of the restaurant that could accommodate 70 - without any additional charge or guaranteed/minimum headcount.
I am so grateful for Anthony's constant willingness to go above and beyond. Working with him was the least stressful part of my wedding planning.
I'm also thankful to the rest of the staff at the Inn at Great Neck for their service - for reconfiguring room reservations so no one was left bedless, handing out gift bags to arrivals, continuously replenishing chafer dishes and silverware for the mob of brunch attendees, and decorating the bridal suite to make even bedtime special.
And if you, reader, couldn't already tell, I highly recommend the Inn at Great Neck!
Also - aside from the service - I recommend the Inn at Great Neck for its location. It is less than a 5 minute walk from the Long Island Railroad and right in the center of town, just off Middle Neck Road. Guests can find anything they need right around the corner - pharmacies, coffee shops and restaurants, boutique shopping, and beauty salons. less
