McKinley was by far one of the best decisions we have ever made together. All of our guests had nothing but positive comments on our wedding between the venue and the food. They all had such a wonderful time and were just amazed by the service. My wife (Carly) and I could not have asked for a better place to have our reception. Alisha Fisher was by far such a pleasure to work with and we truly appreciated her services. She truly showed that she cared about making our day special and that we were satisfied throughout the whole process. Thank you so much Alisha!! -Tom Bestor
I recently held my reception at the McKinley (approx.190 guests), and couldn’t have been happier with the entire experience. From the beginning of the planning process, Alisha (Director of Catering & Sales) and Jesse (General Manager) worked to make sure that my husband and I were happy with every small detail – from the room setup and food choices to the addition of an ice cream bar to our package! They really made the process less stressful and more enjoyable. The staff, food, service, and ambiance was also exceptional. Dinner was served to all 190 of my guests in what seemed like record time. The staff was friendly, professional, and responsive to any requests. The food was delicious – especially the chicken cordon bleu and the maple soy salmon. The setup of the room was perfect for both the cocktail hour and the reception, without feeling cramped. The dance floor is huge and accommodates a large crowd. I’m sad that the big day is over, but I love to hear my guests still raving about the event and how wonderful everything was at the McKinley! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for an upscale location in the Binghamton area. -Jessica Mirabito
My husband and I had our wedding reception at The McKinley this September and it was better than we could have ever dreamed of! The coordinators went above and beyond to make sure the night went perfect. They are super accommodating with any ideas you may have in the planning process (and give many suggestions!) and are always available to answer any questions you may have. I planned our wedding from Hawaii and had no troubles at all staying in contact with them throughout the process. We also had many of our 200 guests tell us that it was the best food they had ever had at a reception. Gorgeous venue, great people, delicious food! I will always whole-heartedly recommend this venue to any couple planning their wedding in the Binghamton area! -Nikki Batdorf
The McKinley was the placed I always wanted for my reception, even before I was engaged. I used to work at the McKinley and I know all of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes of a wedding reception. It was such a nice feeling the be the bride and be on the other end of things. Alisha was absolutely fantastic as she guided me through the planning process, and was so flexible with my busy work schedule. The tasting they had was perfect, and let me have another look at things set up before I had my big day. The whole space is completely stunning, from the entrance, to the sunk in dance floor. Plenty of room for dancing, eating, mingling and for a photobooth! This facility really has it all, and does everything to not only make this all about you but make it perfect for you. The food was amazing, and it was awesome to hear all my guests still talking about it weeks after the wedding. Everyone serving did a great job keeping the dinner flow going while keeping the place clean. The layout is perfect and the music could be heard from every corner of the room, and the decorations across the high ceiling were beautiful. My wedding day was perfect and I have Alisha and the McKinley to thank for it, I’m so grateful for all of their hardwork while making my reception perfect. -Melissa Binkewicz
I must say that by far the McKinley is the most perfect and huge venue I have ever seen! I was a little hesitant of the place when we first met with Alisha, but once the big day finally came, everything she promised it could be, became reality! Our friends and family CAN NOT stop talking about how it was the best reception they have ever been to, and they have been to A LOT of weddings. Plus, the food was superb! I would definitely recommend either the Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken or the Potato Encrusted Cod. It makes us feel good knowing that we made a good decision in placing our reception in the hands of Alicia and the staff at the McKinley. COULD NOT have gone any more perfect! Thank you so, so much!! -Jonathan Tiffany
We had our wedding at the McKinley and it was absolutely amazing!! The staff was so attentive during the entire day. From the moment I got there to the last dance song everything was perfect! We have been told multiple times by many of our guests how beautiful the venue was and what a great job their staff did! The planning stages themselves were some of my favorites working with their team. Everyone went above and beyond of what I expected. They were very helpful and accommodating throughout the process. We had some special requests and they all worked very hard to make them happen for us! We really can’t thank everyone at the McKinley enough for making our day so special and perfect! I highly recommend the McKinley they were truly amazing! -Kelliann Lamond
My husband and I just recently had our wedding reception at The McKinley. It was beyond wonderful! We worked closely with Alisha and her staff for over a year and from the small to big questions everything was answered. They were all extremely helpful and our wedding reception was beautiful! We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Alisha made wedding planning easy and fun! There is no better venue out there! Thank you to Alisha and the McKinley staff for everything! -Megan Werner
I just had my wedding at The McKinley in June. I cannot say enough about them! From the food to the staff everything was amazing. We did the buffet and everyone has their food in a timely manner and the food was amazing! The staff was so helpful and accommodating. Working with Alisha during the whole planning process made things so much easier for me. She was very helpful, and made things run so smooth for my husband and I. I would definitely recommend having your wedding here! -Desiree Lee
The McKinley was excellent every step of the way throughout our wedding process. From our first sit-down with the McKinley Team all the way through our final moments at their venue on our wedding night they were more than accommodating to my wife, myself, and our guests. They were very flexible and catered to our exact preferences, adapting to what we wanted opposed to just saying “well that’s our standard policy.” In my opinion, a venue’s flexibility is key when planning a wedding. When planning your wedding you might become stressed when dealing with some of your vendors, but I can assure you The McKinley won’t be one of them. I highly recommend The McKinley to anybody. -Keatan Fisher
Where do I even begin? Working with Alisha and the staff at the McKinley was amazing! Our whole planning process was stress free and fun and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! The venue was decorated just as we imagined it, the food was DELICIOUS and our guests were totally blown away! Our wedding was a dream come true! From our signature Bride and Groom Drinks, to our Smore bar, the food and how helpful the staff was throughout the process, I can’t thank you guys enough for everything you did for us throughout the process! Our wedding is still being talked about and how it was the best wedding people have ever been to! -Melissa Vaglica
