Cliff House

From catering minimums to the sleeping arrangements, we've provided a list of our most asked questions for your convenience. Still don't find what you're looking for? Feel free to contact us!

Q: Do I have to rent sleeping rooms to have my wedding at The Cliff House?
A: We require a minimum of 10 sleeping rooms if you are planning on having a DJ or band as part of receptions held in the larger J.S. Morley Ballroom. This helps the hotel avoid noise complaints by other hotel guests. We accommodate receptions without sleeping rooms provided there is no musical entertainment or if the reception is held in The Cathedral Spires Pavilion or William’s Canyon Suite.

Q: How are the sleeping rooms included with the wedding packages paid for?
A: You may pay for any or all of the rooms. You may pay for a portion of any or all rooms. We can bill guests individually for their rooms.

Q: What is included in the catering minimum?
A: Any food and beverage item (i.e. hors d’oeuvres, salad, entree, dessert/cake cutting, and bar) are applied toward the minimum. Tax and service fee are additional. Estimate $85/person for an evening reception.

Q: Do you have an outdoor ceremony location?
A: We offer a covered, climate controlled area that opens up to beautiful views of Red Mountain and the foothills of Pikes Peak. The retractable wall of windows can be opened completely on a nice afternoon.

Q: What is your deposit/cancellation policy?
A: To guarantee a date we require a signed contract and a 25% deposit based on the facility fee, minimum catering, and ceremony fee, if applicable. $500.00 of the deposit in non-refundable.

Q: Where do wedding guests park?
A: Valet parking is guaranteed to hotel guests first. Remaining spaces are available on a first come first serve basis at no additional charge to your guests. There is an $15.00/vehicle/night charge for overnight parking.

Q: What is the hotel tax rate?

Discounted breakfast buffet vouchers are available for purchase for overnight guests and can be billed to the group master account or to the individual guest.
