We chose the Grande Vista room and OMG! after walking in on my wedding day July 6 this year and seeing the room all set up I was just in Aww! It was perfect. Christine, Kimmie and Melanie we're perfect. These ladies helped me from beginning to end. I couldn't have asked for anything better

Melanie was amazing.  The attention she gave us and our event was second to none!  She definitely went above and beyond/exceeded our expectations!  Melanie's demeanor and customer service skills were phenomenal!  She made us feel very comfortable and explained everything in detail.... NOTHING hidden, EVERYTHING upfront!  Her sense for decorating and ideas for setting up our decorations.... WOW!  Job well done!  We will definitely hold future events here!

Rio Plaza was the perfect venue to host our social event. The host was very quick to respond with any questions and concerns, and was even flexible to modify the menu a few days before the event. The staff was very friendly and had everything set up as needed. The venue itself had a very pretty interior with great views of the river walk below. Would definitely recommend!

Rio Plaza was absolutely the BEST venue for my Disco Birthday Party. Christine Blankenship, Coordinator at Rio Plaza was helpful, professional  and efficient. Most importantly, she understood my vision for this milestone birthday party. Christine was also on top of all the deadlines and coordinating with the DJ, LED dance floor and lighting crew, the menu and bar. I took the decorations to Rio Plaza, explained what I desired and she accomplished it perfectly. I must not forget the Staff at my party. They were Awesome the whole night. The Staff went over and beyond to insure that my birthday party was a success!!!  I would highly recommend Rio Plaza for your celebration!
