Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront: your perfect wedding on the water

From your vantage point high above the city, take in the sun-dappled water of Lake Ontario down below. Behind you, a pristine ballroom is set for celebration: votive candles glow at tables covered in crisp white linens. Around you are all your favourite people in the world, here to share in your happiness.

When you’re searching for the perfect location for your wedding, there are a few “must haves.” You’re looking for a professional wedding venue with event staff to look after all the details; a reception space with a certain “wow” factor; and surroundings that will help you make memories of a perfect day.

And ideally, your venue in the heart of the city, with restaurants, shopping, and cultural activities to entertain your guests before the big event. The Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront, in addition to boasting Kingston’s best waterfront views and complete wedding packages, is also in the heart of Kingston’s walkable downtown. Explore Kingston’s unique boutiques, saunter along the waterfront trail, or arrange for your guests to take in fun activities like kayak rentals and history tours.

Welcome to your perfect wedding on the water, at Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront.

The hotel offers two stunning large ballrooms for your wedding ceremony and reception, both on the sixth floor, offering natural light and panoramic views. Each has room to mingle, dance, and celebrate together. The Bellevue Ballroom has capacity for up to 200 for a banquet-style dinner event, while the Islandview Ballroom has capacity for 150. If you’re planning an intimate gathering of your nearest and dearest, the Holiday Inn offers four smaller reception rooms.

Let the experts help you plan your perfect gathering, whether that’s a cocktail reception or a four-course plated dinner. The hotel offers menu options to suit every palate and dietary need. For your reception, choose from a tantalizing selection of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres. Let the food match the mood of your celebration, whether that means delicate bites of duck confit crostini with honey-fig jam at your formal reception or a fun midnight snack of sliders and mini hot dogs after a night of dancing.

“We are delighted to work with you to create a unique and memorable experience for your wedding,” says Erin Finucan, Director of Sales and Marketing. “For instance, in the Cove private dining room, you can host up to 12 people for a small reception. You can hold your rehearsal dinner at our waterside restaurant, Wharf & Feather. You can also welcome your guests on our open-air waterfront patio, where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage, and listen to live music. We have so many options for you.”

The Holiday Inn Kingston Waterfront will also look after the wedding party before and after the reception. With all its wedding packages, newlyweds receive overnight accommodation in a King waterfront room. Their guests get preferred rates for overnight stays (and each room in the recently renovated hotel boasts a balcony).
