What a great venue to work with!

From the minute we saw the rooftop terrace we knew that鈥檚 where we wanted to get married. The team at Marriott was amazing to work with. Everyone from the day of coordinator, to the culinary team, to the servers and everyone involved in setting everything up. We couldn鈥檛 have been happier with how the day went. We kept getting compliments on how good the food was, how beautiful the set up was and how fun it was to have access to the outdoor terrace. We highly recommend this to be your next event venue.

Good overall but added stress

I was the maid of honor for a wedding here this summer. I know the couple had concerns with the venue prior to the wedding day that had to be smoothed out. At the dress rehearsal the coordinator we were assigned (Sheila) was curt and spoke over the pastor, she was abrasive when the bride wanted things done differently than was her view. On the day of, the coordinator was good during the ceremony, once the reception started, she gifted the bridal party tequila shots, and made sure to tell the bride (and bridal party) they were compensating her due to concerns that had been brought up prior to the wedding day and made a point of telling us they were bending the rules for the photographer, after which she said she was doing so in hopes we would give them a good review. The night staff that we dealt with on the other hand were amazing and attentive. The food at dinner was average, the risotto was extremely salty and most guests couldn't stomach it and the food here is not inexpensive, the late night snack was below average (sliders) but the appetizers were very good. The overall experience was good and the venue was beautiful but the specifics added unneeded stress to the bride and groom.

Beautiful Downtown Skyline Patio

We loved being able to have our ceremony and reception on the rooftop patio of the Marriott. Staff was very accommodating, friendly and thorough in their service. Alcohol was a little pricey, but other than that amazing venue!

Rooftop Wedding

The Marriott went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding vision came true. Throughout the planning process, Glen, Lorry and Diana were so helpful in answering all of our questions quickly and made such an effort to meet with us multiple times which included two mock setups to give us peace of mind.

Originally our wedding was supposed to be set up outside on the rooftop. However, on our wedding day the forecast was showing rain so our reception was set up inside. Knowing that we had our hearts set on having an outdoor wedding. The Marriott staff decided to take a chance and moved everything from inside to outside on the rooftop in the span of an hour. It was unbelievable what they were able to put together in such a short amount of time. They also set up d茅cor that was never the Marriott's responsibility such as our ceremony backdrop and cafe lighting due to shortfalls from our other vendors. When it started to rain during dinner, they once again did a phenomenal job setting up an entire indoor reception area last minute including a dance floor, photobooth and dessert area. There were so many last minute changes throughout the day and the Marriott were so accommodating. Our photographer and videographer mentioned to us that they've never seen a venue put in so much effort to ensure the success of a wedding. I want to give a special thanks to Luke, Erald, Glen, Lorry, Diana and Rosevelt. The entire staff were amazing that day however these wonderful people in particular really made our day special.

Wonderful Staff!

We had our wedding ceremony on the rooftop patio at the Marriott. It was a beautiful venue overlooking downtown! We first met with Glen who showed us around and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Lorry, our event coordinator was amazing to work with! She was professional, detailed and willing to help wherever she could. We are very impressed with all of the Marriott staff, including Erald, Alex and Adam. On the day before, we had a few changes (we are very picky people) with the set up and they were able to accommodate all of our detailed requests! Our guests enjoyed the food and everyone had a great time! We couldn't have been more happy to have Marriott host our wedding day!

Calgary Marriott Downtown Hotel - 10/10 AMAZING Venue

This hotel is made our day amazing. Right from the planning portion with the Even staff to the day of and even the day after, our experience was incredible. The facilities are modern and guest friendly, the rooftop patio for a downtown venue offered a unique ceremony spot and was great for pictures. The food was one of the many highlights of the Marriott Hotel; every guest, even the picky ones had nothing but compliments. We had some special requests for our menu and every last one was handled with the detail of a 5 star dining experience. Every single member of the staff treated us and our guests like family, it was truly like hosting an event in my own home. We even had our dogs on the patio for the ceremony! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
