The Pilot House and Hotel Vue Expand Catering & Conference Capabilities in Natchez

After a year celebrating the City of Natchez’s 300th anniversary, domestic and international travelers are aware of the city’s hospitality and history.  Statewide association and corporate retreats continue to flock to historic Natchez while weddings and special celebrations are routine events.2

To ensure that event planners and brides-to-be are confident in the experience of their guests, Hotel Vue has expanded its conference and catering team.

Sidney Ashmore was recently named Restaurant Manager for The Pilot House located at Hotel Vue in Natchez, MS.  In taking the helm at The Pilot House, Ashmore returns to his home state after exercising his creative and professional training both at restaurants and event venues in greater Chicago.  He has over 15 years of experience in food and beverage, from casual to upscale fine dining, and private corporate parties and meetings, as well as weddings and grand receptions.

Victoria Antin was recently named Sales & Catering Coordinator for The Pilot House and Hotel Vue. Antin, originally from New Orleans, consulted and worked in different creative F&B outlets before  joining Hotel Vue where she works directly with planners in detailing meetings and receptions alike.

In addition to its river-facing bar, lounge, and private dining room, the hotel and restaurant have a large, bluff-topped lawn and over 3,000 square feet of dedicated event space for meetings and receptions.
