What our clients say about us:
“In September , we hosted 80 guests at Hotel Ocho for our wedding. It was a wonderful evening canapé & cocktail style reception. It was an incredible experience - from the location, the food and especially the friendliness of the staff. Rish is amazing to deal with. We visited a number of wedding venues and Hotel Ocho was refreshingly friendly and very accommodating to our requests. They helped us stay in our budget which we also appreciated. We filled the hotel with our out of town guests which added to the fun. It was a perfect location for guests to explore the city. We could not have asked for more. Thank you Hotel Ocho!” Kimberly & Kiersten- TripAdvisor
“We had our wedding cocktail reception here in July of 2014. We wanted a big party for our friends and family and Ocho turned out to be perfect for that! The staff were friendly, attentive and very professional, at the event and leading up to it. We brought in our own wine ( which was a great idea from Rish the event manager) lots of decor, a cake and everything was handled with care. Our guests loved the food, many have mentioned their attempts to recreate the gourmet grilled cheese! And many commented on how nice the space was. The events manager, Rish was helpful, friendly, approachable, organized and was great at keeping in touch with us throughout the year before our event. Rish and Jamal were both fantastic.
I would definitely recommend this place to everyone whether it is a stay at the hotel, dinner or drinks with friends or having a wedding here!
It was a memorable evening!” Paige & Graham
“I had my wedding at Hotel Ocho in October and it was an incredible experience. I work in PR and have extensive experience with venues and events staff, but was quite pleasantly surprised by the great, stress-free experience with Ocho. “ Cara & Malcom
“Hotel Ocho is breathtaking. It’s something right out of a magazine. The ambience, the food, the high ceilings; everything is picturesque. I didn’t want a tradition wedding. I wanted something that matched our styles. After calling several places to see if they would accommodate, Rish was more than willingly to set up our reception the way we wanted. We had a cocktail wedding reception, which made the whole night interactive. Everyone had a good time. Our guests kept complementing the food, and the bar choices. The wedding was a night to remember, not just for Paul and I, but also for our guests. It was a wedding with a twist. It was truly magical.
We wanted a cocktail reception, however, Rish was up for it all! Even if I changed my mind last minute, she was ready to give me the traditional set up too. There was so much freedom. It wasn’t like any other place, where you literally choose package A or B, and that’s that. Hotel Ocho really wanted to tailor-make the event to fit our style. They had all the amenities to go from traditional to contemporary.
I would recommend Hotel Ocho many times over. Not just for the venue, which is spectacular, but also for its people.” Cinthya & Paul
“WE had our wedding receptionat Hotel Ocho on Oct 3rd. There is not enough good things that we can say about how Ocho handled everything from the planning to the execution of the wedding!
Event Coordinator Rish is simply fantastic, always available to answer questions, even mundane ones. She was so flexible with whatever I ideas we had and basically knew what I was getting at before I even really explained it. Jamal the manager was amazing, always saying hello and answering questions when we came for visits and he was extremely present on the night of the reception, staying right till the very end and even updating us real time on our bar tab when we bothered him for info:) All the staff there were so great and helpful throughout the reception and the next morning Richard was so helpful, stored my wedding cake for me when I couldn't carry it home.
All our guests said the food was the best food they have ever had a wedding( Lamb shanks and Bacon wrapped Scallop yummm) and they were so impressed with the way the food was served as well. Drinks where incredible. If you're like me and don't want to serve your guests run of the mill mixed drinks then Ocho is for you. Their cocktail list is extensive and their wines are amazing. They have so many Scotches and Whiskys as well.
Our rooms where lovely and along with some of our guests we were exclaiming that the beds where some of the most comfortable we had ever slept on!
If you are looking for a place to host your wedding with gorgeous decor basically built in, amazing staff, food and drinks and also at a very reasonable price for Toronto then Ocho is for you!
Thanks again to the entire staff for helping make our day so special” Janine & Al
