Premium South Bend Event Spaces
Unforgettable memories are made at some of life’s most important events: baby and bridal showers, graduations, family reunions and more. We want to make your next event come together effortlessly, wow everyone in attendance and, of course, set the stage for every attendee to focus on what’s most important: each other.
The Inn at Saint Mary's is the ideal home base for planning your next social event. We have the flexible gathering space located right next door to our well-appointed, luxuriously comfortable hotel guest rooms.
The Gillespie Conference and Special Event Center features a wide range of event spaces, which you can customize based on number of guests and theme and feel. Divide up rooms as you see fit, and we’ll make sure you have all of the audio and visual equipment you need for your event to go without a hitch. Working together, our partner spaces collectively serve up the exact recipe you need to meet the needs of you and your guests.
We don’t compromise on quality anywhere, least of all our menu. The on-site catering is a top-tier culinary experience. From brunches to cocktail hours to multiple course-dinners, you can trust in the expertise of the head chefs and the incredible catering team. Both the preparation and the service will impress your guests, and since we’re able to integrate into the planning process, it takes one more item off your to-do list as you’re readying for the event.
A Room for Everyone
The Inn at Saint Mary's is a top-rated hotel in South Bend for one reason: we treat every guest as our only guest. You’re welcomed warmly and our rooms are prepared with everything you’ll need as an out-of-town traveler attending a memorable event. You want to relax and focus on the people you’re here to see - especially if their hotel room is next door to yours. And we can make that happen when you reserve room blocks for your entire party. Just let our front desk know of your event plans and we’ll accommodate everyone who’s along for the visit.
Things to Do
You may feel like you spend countless hours planning your event, then it’s over before you know it. But the time together doesn’t have to stop. Not when there’s so much to do and see in South Bend. During football season, cheering on Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish is a top weekend event.
There are also numerous art galleries and boutique shops to tour in East Bank Village. The National Studebaker Museum is a curious place to explore, along with the Oliver Mansion. Stop by the front desk and our local staff members will give you their top tips for touring the area while you’re staying in South Bend.
