I was privileged to be a part of the 36th Texas State Music Festival hosted by the Lufkin State Supported Living Center and held at the Hotel Fredonia & Convention Center, last week. We had over 200 performers and more than 300 total attendees in the Convention Center on Wednesday & Thursday. From the time we began setting up the venue on Monday, through the time I had to return on Friday afternoon to retrieve a table I had forgotten, we were treated to the best service imaginable! We enjoyed wonderful meals, catered by the hotel from Wednesday’s breakfast through the awards banquet on Thursday evening. When I say catered, I want you to know, they didn’t just provide the food, but literally catered to the needs of every person in attendance. The Hotel Fredonia & Convention Center is not the newest facility, so don’t expect the surface glitz of a brand new venue. Here, you can expect deeper traditions like old fashioned charm and a staff which we found to be second to none in their willingness to put service above all else. From past experience with this hotel, I knew there was no other venue in the area that could accommodate our needs so well. Still, to be certain, we checked out every possible alternative in Lufkin & Nacogdoches anyway. So, I say with confidence – for an event of this size and scope, The Hotel Fredonia & Convention Center is THE premiere location in the Texas Forest Country. Thank you, for being a very large part of the success of this year’s festival!
The Lone Star Legislative Summit Reception went very well thanks to the hotel staff. Always a pleasure working with y’all.

We came for a meeting and pep rally for a new branch that we were opening. The service we received was excellent… [the] Event Planning and Sales [team] provided me with excellent service with anything that I needed, even if it was the last minute.

Our TOMFRA trip was a huge success thanks to your careful shepherding us through our planning. We also appreciated your being at the hotel to assist us in our daily needs. We could not have been more please with your hotel, the service, and the willingness of your employees to meet our every need… Our members remarked on the lobby flowers!

Just wanted to let you know that the food served at the Texas State Bank’s “Eight Make a Difference” banquet last night was sensational! The filet mignon was the best I have had in a long time and the chocolate cake with raspberry topping was a real treat. The service was also good. Keep up the good work!

As a result of fantastic community support, the inaugural Nacogdoches Film Festival…was a success. I would like to personally thank our sponsors… I would also like to send out a special thanks to Hotel Fredonia and their staff for hosting the event.

I don’t think I ever had the opportunity to thank you for all your help when my investors were in town. It went very well and they were very impressed with your hotel and especially the food in the restaurant! I can assure you that these guys know a thing or two about good food and restaurants so it is no small compliment.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work with the Scholarship Stars reception. It was an amazing event, and I couldn’t have pulled it off without the help of everyone at the Fredonia. All of our attendees had a great time and really enjoyed the hospitality and delicious food that y’all provided. I look forward to planning this event with y’all next year!

Thank you for much for providing us with rooms at the Fredonia Hotel during our trip for the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail.
