Hotel du Village is the newest venue offered by Landmark Hospitality billionaires Frank and Jeanne Cretella. They believe they have the most romantic venue in New Hope. It is a stunning venue; but here’s something a lot of brides and grooms may not realize when booking Hotel du Village. It is beautiful a beautiful. It is elegant. But two events can and do run there at the same time. Not unusual with the wedding mansions and larger establishments. But there is an intimate private setting, and many couples might prefer that their event be the only one going on. Nearby they also own Prallsville Mills in Stockton and the Logan Inn in New Hope.
Ceremonies are held outside on a large walled patio surrounded by trees. The bridal suite is very large, light and airy and overlooks this ceremony area. This means the bride can also see her guests assembling prior to the start of the ceremony. If raining moving a ceremony indoors would not be a problem.
Hotel du Village has two refurbished event spaces. The Colt Ballroom is the largest and can accommodate up to 200 guests. This large room features hardwood floors, 10 ft ceilings, and a large stone fireplace. It opens to a pre-function room which overlooks their manicured gardens and the Delaware River. Cocktails and dancing can also be enjoyed in the loft above the ballroom.
The Historic Ballroom is Hotel du Village’s second ballroom, and can hold up to 140 guests. It features a full wall of windows overlooking the gardens and Delaware River.
