Daisy was the best! She is very experienced and shared freely and often along our planning journey. Most critical were the invitation and US AFA Event Access List. Over 200 attendees were admitted without problems. As a result, we were able to enjoy our wedding and not chase last minute problems. We are deeply appreciative of Daisy and the vendors she recommended. THANKS!

My husband and I held his military retirement dinner/luau at Doolittle. This is a lovely venue. If you have the opportunity to have an event while still daylight the views are great. The facility is very nice and the facility managers provide a lot of options for use. Everyone was professional and helpful. They even made some decorating suggestions that proved easy to do and were inexpensive and beautiful. They were on sight during the event and made everything run smoothly. They keep a list of local approved vendors to help with the various party needs which is very helpful. They have a catering kitchen. They have media interface and sound system which allowed us to connect and present a slide show and play music. Tables and chairs are included in the price. We were very pleased with our experience.

The Association of Graduates Doolittle Hall is one of our all-time favorite venues in Colorado Springs. We have had the honor and privilege of serving as a catering vendor for many years! Doolittle is a first class venue in every way possible. The spaces are clean, warm, welcoming and always capably managed. I am always proud to work at Doolittle and to recommend the venue to our clients, knowing they will receive first class customer service, fair pricing and opportunity to create the event of their dreams.

The Colorado Bar Association has held a leadership training session at the Air Force Academy’s Association of Graduates facility for the past several years. The meeting/event space has easy access, is well maintained, and offers the latest in technology. The staff is fantastic to work with. They are professional and very good at their jobs. It is apparent that their goal is to make sure our event is successful. It is a pleasure working with the AOG staff and using their facility for our meetings.

People have always said that wedding planning is fun and easy but in the first few months of planning I realized those people were lying! We had looked at a ton of different places and although the price was right on some, the service was horrible. Multiple places lied or changed their story constantly and others made it hard to customize the wedding "this is the package available, you can't add or subtract to it". The AFA, more specifically Doolittle Hall, was one of the last places we looked and it should have been the first because it would have saved us so much hassle. My fiance (at the time) loved it the moment we walked in; the room was large and beautiful and working with the great staff right from the beginning sealed the deal for us. Everything seemed to flow smoothly after that. The staff went above and beyond trying to accommodate for us and really worked within our tight budget. They stayed on top of things, answered questions promptly and everything was perfect. After all was said and done, I couldn't have imagined going anywhere else. I have nothing but high regards and great recommendations for the AFA, Doolittle Hall and their wonderful staff. In the end, they made the planning easy and fun we couldn't have chose anything better!!
