What our clients are saying about us

  • “I honestly can say, that if there were a 10 on this survey, I'd rate the managers and team a 20, 6 is too low a grade to give them for their efficiency and excellence. There is no doubt that Edith Macy is the Venue that I will continue to use, and there is no one that I will keep from telling about the Superseding Excellence that is Edith Macy in Quality & Service.“

    – Theresa M. | Albert Einstein University

  • “Everyone was excellent. You have a great crew. All smiles and very courteous--even when the weather made them do extra work--moving things in and out. You should be very proud of your team. They are stellar! The event was a great success. Thank you.“

    – Ana Marie T. | The Nature Conservancy

  • “Was just here for a weeklong retreat, and I cannot say enough good things about this venue. Firstly, the staff is outstanding. Their service and attention to detail, their kindness and overall attitude is just top notch. The facilities are fantastic. The grounds are beautiful. The guest rooms are top notch. The food is absolutely the best out there. If your company or agency is looking for a venue for a working retreat, don’t look anywhere else. You have found THE place.“

    - Jon S

  • “Perfect venue for corporate retreats! Love the conference center being separated from the hotel rooms. Auditorium was great, as well as the MapleDogwood rooms for our poster session. The tented patio was perfect for our attendees to spread out and enjoy their meals, as well as for our evening dance party. And the smores treats at the fire pit were a huge rave!“
