  • Everything was awesome from the Sterling Ballroom. Everyone raved about the food and the service was fantastic. There is not one negative thing to say about the venue. We had such a wonderful experience. They made everything such a breeze and not to mention the venue is beautiful. We were apprehensive because it is a hotel, but we were blown away upon our first visit. The Sterling Ballroom comes highly recommended.

  • I particularly want to commend Ali Fernandes, Nemo, Anna, and Maria for helping to make the shower the success it was. They went above and beyond with their caring, attentive attitude to every aspect of the planning and details. You can be proud of your staff and the wonderful reflection they are of your venue – professional, knowledgeable, customer focused, with a genuine commitment to excellence. I have recommended your venue to everyone who asks.
