Downtown Portland Wedding Receptions
For the various Hotel Fifty departments to prepare properly for your successful event(s), we require the final attendance be determined and communicated to our Wedding Professional 14 working days prior to the event. This number will be considered a guarantee not subject to reduction, and charges will be assessed accordingly. If a guarantee is not given to Hotel Fifty by 11 AM on the date it is due, the expected numbers indicated on the Banquet Event Order will become the guarantee. Hotel Fifty will set 5% over the guarantee up to a maximum of 50 covers. The set for all meal events will be the same as the guarantee. Hotel Fifty will not be responsible for identical service to more than 5% over the guarantee. The customer will be billed for the guarantee(s) plus any additional attendees at each event.
Food and Beverage
Current banquet prices are indicated on the all wedding menu suggestions and proposals. All food and beverage must be supplied by Hotel Fifty which is the only authorized licensee to sell and serve liquor, beer and wine on the premises. All food and beverage prices are guaranteed ninety (90) days prior to the date of the function. Our Wedding Professional will be happy to customize specialty menus at your request. Hotel Fifty specifically prohibits the removal of food from any banquet-related event by the customer or any of the customer’s guests or invitees. To ensure that every detail is handled in a professional manner, Hotel Fifty suggests that your menu selections and specific details be finalized not later than four (4) weeks prior to your function.
