Amazing experience!

We had our combined wedding & reception at the Courtyard by the Calgary Airport. The Sales Manager, Aleks, was amazing and super flexible. They were very accommodating to all our special requests and needs for our Indian ceremony. They have a beautiful event space with two banquet halls and outdoor patio which we used separately for our ceremony and reception. Great location and lots of parking. Would 100% recommend! Thank you to Aleks and the Courtyard staff for making our wedding absolutely amazing.

Amazing Venue!!

We used this hotel for our wedding venue and were super pleased with how it turned out, the hotel's teams worked together to make it the beautiful event that it was. A huge shout out to Ivan Christian at the hotel who was the event manager and helped us plan our event. The food was amazing! Our guests had a wonderful time and the newly renovated rooms and restaurant were amazing!!!

Amazing staff and food!

The food here is simply amazing! When we went for our tasting we had trouble deciding what to have since it was all so good. My only complaint is that I didn't go back for seconds!

We ended up getting a different event manager mid-way through planning, which kind of panicked me at first, but Chandler did a great job getting everything organized and was nothing but professional and polite with my endless emails. The event staff were also lovely. We had planned to have a midnight snack but one of the staff suggested we move it up since guests were starting to leave. They did this with no problem or disruption to us. When we were cleaning up the next day, the staff also lent us some carts to bring our centre pieces to a sink to drain. I think the fact that everything went smoothly and we had a great night speaks to how well the staff worked. And again, I cannot stress enough how amazing the food is!

My brothers wedding reception

The event staff is amazing, from booking to co-ordinating, tasting, setup and actual event everything was handled very professionally and efficiently. All the staff were very helpful and understanding and supportive of last minute changes too. Food was amazing and the Chef is a superstar for getting things done exactly as we wanted.

The Courtyard Marriott was the perfect venue. The food was so so so good, all of my guests commented how much they loved the food. The event manager was wonderful to work with and she was very accommodating if I needed anything to be changed or added on. I would definitely recommend this venue to friends and family.
