Where Tradition and Affordability meet…..
We are proud to be recognized by Virginia Living Magazine as the #1 Best Wedding Venue in the Shenandoah Valley for the past 5 years. With over 50 years, combined experience in the hospitality industry, our long standing staff and management team is above reproach. While outdoor venues are a popular trend right now, they can also bring with them extra work, worries, and hidden costs. Why not consider an option that is both elegant and dependable without the stress of, “What-if” contingencies? If you are looking for an affordable, stress free wedding venue where every detail is assured, then look no further than Hotel 24 South!
Nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, our historic, yet stylishly modern hotel and wedding venue provides the perfect backdrop for your dream wedding. In 2018 we completed our latest renovation, which included all new carpet, wall coverings and window treatments in our guests rooms as well as a refresh of our lobby, events space and restaurant outlets. Whether you are planning a large upscale event or a more intimate, low key affair we have you covered. Our two distinctive ballrooms can accommodate weddings of all sizes.
Originally built in 1924 and newly restored in 2018, our historic Colonnade Ballroom is a picture-perfect option for both the wedding ceremony and reception. Adjacent to our Colonnade Ballroom is our Magnolia South Restaurant, which can be home to cocktail hour and a late night dessert reception. Both have plenty of natural light, and overlook our picturesque downtown. There is also access to our outdoor patio area from either location, adding an outdoor element to your event.
Capacity: 100 people
Rental Range: $500-1,500
For the larger guest list, our modern, yet sophisticated Shenandoah Ballroom will comfortably fit those needs. With over 4,500 square feet, you have a blank canvas to create the backdrop for the reception you have always dreamed of. Whether a heavy hors d’ oeuvres reception, or an elegant sit down dinner, this space will allow for all the extra touches you have always wanted to include in your special day.
Capacity: 300 people
Rental Range: $1,000-$2,500
Our rental fees include all tables, chairs, standard linens, china, glassware, silver, and your choice of in-house centerpieces. There are no hidden costs, which is not always the case with venues that do not offer full service. Leave the planning and day of details to our experienced staff. You will work with one of our experienced catering professionals to plan your event and then they will work with our banquet team to see that everything is arranged to your liking, from set-up to service to breakdown of your entire event.
We do not have set rental prices. Our venue rentals are based on what space your request as well as what you are willing to commit to spending in food and beverage. The more you are willing to contract to spend in food and beverage the less you spend in rental. We want your wedding budget focused on things that will make your special day unique and memorable. Once you speak with a member of our sales team we can create a customize quote detailing all anticipated costs, based on your specific vision.
We have a total of 124 guest rooms, including four suites. All have been recently updated. We are happy to offer your guests a lower than any published discounted rate when you reserve at least 10 rooms or more. Your Sales Manager will be happy to guide you through the process of reserving your room block.
We are happy to arrange to have welcome gifts bags delivered to individual guest rooms at a rate of $2.00 per room. Guest bags can also be presented at check-in by our Front Desk staff for a charge of $1.00 each.
Food and Beverage
We are a full service facility, which means less work for you! All food and beverage is arranged through us, and prepared on-site by our experience culinary staff. You can choose from options that are included in our wedding brochure, or we are happy to work with you to create a customized menu specific to your tastes and needs. During the final planning stage your Conference Planner will be happy to set up a tasting so you can sample the menu selections you are considering.
We don’t limit our catering services to just wedding receptions. We are also happy to accommodate any other catering needs you may have during your wedding weekend, such as rehearsal dinner, welcome reception, bridal luncheon, and post wedding breakfast/brunch needs. There are added discounts on rentals and food and beverage when you decide to have more than just your reception with us. Reach out to our Sales team for more details.
