Inn on Fifth Delivers “One and Only” Wedding Experience

In addition to its elegant charm and enviable downtown Naples setting, a unique “One and Only” policy makes the legendary Inn on Fifth is a popular venue for couples in search of a singular wedding day experience.  Promising to book only one wedding at a time, the 87-room boutique Inn on Fifth is able to fully commit its considerable event planning staff and resources to one couple at a time, giving brides and grooms their undivided personal attention and support.

“The Inn on Fifth gave me the fairytale wedding I wanted,” said Dolly Smith, who was married at The Inn on Fifth in October 2011. “They were accommodating, affordable and assisted me in every step of the planning process.”

A perfect choice for small- to medium-sized weddings, The Inn on Fifth offers 7,879 square feet of flexible space for weddings, including 2,779 square feet inside and 5,100 outside. The Inn easily accommodates up to 200 guests for a tropical Florida-style reception, which can complement weddings on the beach, just a few blocks away.

One of the most valuable benefits of the “One and Only” wedding policy is the unprecedented personal attention provided by the Inn’s event staff who make sure everything runs smoothly – even when it doesn’t.

“When it was raining on the day of my beach wedding, I thought the event would be ruined,” said Smith. “But the staff at the Inn told me not to worry and literally made all the necessary changes to have our ceremony on their magnificent, marble staircase. My Plan B ceremony turned out to be better than I ever expected from my original beach wedding.”

Offering everything from lighted trees and elegant chair covers, to white, open-air tents, ice sculptures and candlelit tables, the Inn can create a magical setting for a truly memorable event.  Whatever they choose, brides-to-be can count on sophisticated service and personal assistance with all arrangements, from florists to photographers. 

“I gave the Inn a spreadsheet with the timeline and details I wanted for my wedding and they made it a reality, paying attention to each and every detail,” said Smith. “They even created an amazing candy bar for me from online images I showed them as a sample.”

The Inn on Fifth offers a variety of affordable wedding packages that can be tailored to each couples’ needs. With both buffet and plated options, event menus are customizable by the hotel’s culinary team, featuring favorites such as Shrimp Mousse on English Cucumbers, Baked Mahi-Mahi with Asian Glaze and Petite Filet with Forest Mushroom Demi Glaze. 

Set like a precious gem in the heart of downtown Naples, The Inn on Fifth allows guests to stay centered along trendy Fifth Avenue South.  The property provides affordable room rates for wedding guests, which includes all the luxuries that come standard at the Inn on Fifth, such as complimentary valet parking, complimentary Wi-Fi, rooftop pool, plush waffle-weave robes and lavish pillow-top bedding.  The Inn on Fifth’s enviable Fifth Avenue location puts guests in walking distance to several bars with lively entertainment and 33 restaurants, including McCabe’s Irish Pub & Grill and Truluck’s Seafood, Steak and Crab House, which are both located in The Inn on Fifth.  Guests can enjoy an easy stroll to the white sand beaches of the emerald Gulf, just a few short blocks from the Inn.  The Spa on Fifth, located on the third floor of the Inn, provides an array of treatments, including a Pino Noir Vino Therapy Detoxing Wrap.
