“This is a note of appreciation for the excellent cooperation we received from all the members of your staff and yourself at our recent meeting at The Cotillion… The Cotillion furnished an excellent setting and atmosphere for our meeting. Two specific benefits which resulted from use of The Cotillion were one, a change of atmosphere, and second, having all our people away from the hotel and at a specific meeting location. It relieved the problem of interruptions and helped to keep people’s attention throughout the program… I will be happy at any time to express our feelings to other interested parties should you desire to refer them.”
