Additional Information

  • Catering: The Hoyt can recommend but does not require the use of a designated caterer. However, to ensure your event will run smoothly, the selected caterer must contact the Hoyt AT LEAST TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE of the event date to assess the kitchen and determine location of food service tables. The Hoyt is not responsible for providing linens, dinnerware, kitchen or catering equipment. As storage is limited, the caterer may deliver equipment no more than 24 hours before the event and must remove all equipment upon completion of the event.
  • Set-up/Decor: The Hoyt will set up tables and chairs according to the needs of the renter approximately 48 hours before the scheduled event. The space will be made available to the renter during normal business hours 24 hours in advance of the scheduled event to decorate. Renters are not permitted to tape, tie, hang or otherwise attach decorations to the interiors, or to move furniture artwork or other Hoyt property or the property of others in the care of the Hoyt. Floral arrangements are permitted with proper table coverings. Deliveries must be arranged during normal business hours of Tuesday-Thursday, 11-8; Friday, Saturday, 11-4 pm. Display tables may be provided with advance notice. Call 724.652.2882 ext 115 to make decorating and/or delivery arrangements.
  • Clean-up: Clean-up is the responsibility of the renter WITHIN THE RENTAL PERIOD. This includes removing décor, catering equipment and garbage. A commercial dishwasher is available in the Hoyt East kitchen.
  • Insurance: If alcohol of any kind is to be served, renters are required to provide a certificate of insurance naming HCA as the beneficiary to protect HCA against bodily injury and property damage on the date of the event. Please check your homeowner’s policy for existing coverage or purchase a special events policy in the amount of $1,000,000.00. HCA is not responsible for the security of personal belongings of the renter, his/her caterer or guests.
  • Cancellation: A minimum of two weeks notice is required to cancel a reserved date. The non-refundable 50% deposit may be applied to a future rental if rescheduled within a 12 month period on a mutually agreeable date.
