A dream venue
Perfect wedding day
The lodging aspect was great! I stayed in a suite with my bridesmaids and then groom and it was spacious, connected to a HUGE outdoor patio, and had a full bathroom and a half bath which was really exceptional. Since there were more than the typical 2 guests in the room, we did require extra bath towels, etc which guest services provided without hesitation. Interestingly, there was a pull out couch in the room with no blankets and when we called guest services the first night to request a blanket they told us the hotel did not have extra. Two of my bridesmaids thus spent the night freezing, sleeping with the hotel robes and multiple layers of clothes. The next night we tried guest services again and they brought a comforter right up. Why?
We also had issues with the parking. Part of our group rate was supposed to include complementary parking for all wedding guests. They doled this advantage out very intermittently and many of our guests ended up paying for parking even though we were promised that they would not.
The front desk staff and bell boys were all lovely to interact with and helped us with any and all requests!
Finally, the wedding dinner portion. We got paired with the wedding coordinator for the Westin named Jackie Collins. Her service/planning/etc was very mediocre. We had multiple miscommunications with her that could have easily been avoided, except she was very disorganized. We even had more than one instance where we had written "proof" of something she had earlier told us, but then she changed
