As the first same-gender couple to be married at the Bethesda Marriott, my husband and I can report that the hotel and its staff were second to none when it came to helping us create the happiest day of our lives.

We first met with Sharon, one of the hotel's certified wedding planners, in late January. She made us feel very, very welcome, and she not only helped us understand what the hotel had to offer, she also pointed us in the direction of other vendors who might be able to help. That kind of thoughtfulness made a positive impression, and within a week, we knew we had found the right venue.

The great service continued as we worked with Sara, the Director of Event Planning, from that time onward. Sara exemplified everything we loved about the Bethesda Marriott: energetic, personal service; friendliness; a "What can we do for you?" attitude; and a superior level of responsiveness. From the food tasting in late May to the minutiae of event timing to the wedding-day stressors, Sara and her team handled it all without so much as a wrinkled brow. At every step along the way, she worked with us to make sure every detail was covered.

The result? Our wedding, from start to finish, went off without a single glitch, and it was EXACTLY as we had always imagined it! The Congressional Ballroom and the adjoining hallway bustled with activity, some of which was the wonderfully professional service of the hotel's staff as they cared for us and our guests. At no time did we think that something wasn't going as planned or needed to be different, because everything was PERFECT.

Everyone remembers their own wedding day, mostly because of the family and friends who are there. My husband and I also remember it for what the Bethesda Marriott was able to provide: a welcoming, friendly and professional staff who helped make our day everything we ever wanted.

A few snafu's during the planning process but the Marriott and our event manager Rosel Moral were quick to make things better. Our reception couldn't have been better. Guests keep telling us how great the food and service were. Thanks Marriott and Rosel!

Everyone we worked with at the Marriott was amazing. They were knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and just warm. We needed certain hours and they made it work for us and it made the day so much more smooth. I don't have a single complaint. One thing that would have been accomodating would be complimentary appetizers while we were getting dressed. They allowed me to use my outside caterer since I had already started paying her so I was a really happy bride. I would recommend without hesitation!! We loved them!

This review is exclusively for using the Pooks Hill Marriott for a wedding block for out of town guests, and for the use of a common room in the hotel for a reception the night before the wedding. Pooks Hill Marriott is good value for the money, but keep in mind their location...near the interstate, but not particularly close to public transportation, so our guests took taxis to most locations. Djelika and the team at Pooks Hill were on top of everything, and even upgraded us to the Honeymoon Suite for the two nights (before and after) we were booked at the hotel. We appreciated the support we received, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a combination of value and service for their preparations in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase area.

Jennifer was our wedding coordinator from the Marriott, and she was great! We used the Congressional Ballroom because we loved the colors in it - hunter green, cranberry red, and gold. When all was decorated for the reception, it looked gorgeous. I would recommend this Marriott to anyone; the rooms are pretty comfortable, too!

This hotel is beautiful and it photographs well. Food was excellent. However, the wedding coordinator wasn't as responsive as I would have liked. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel.

The event planning team at the Bethesda Marriott were amazing! We had a number of menu options which as a vegetarian was important. Plus, my now husband is a chef so food was a big deal for our reception. They were incredibly accomidating for us and worked within our budget to make sure our day was special and unique, which can be a problem at some hotels, which makes weddings feel 'cookie-cutter'. That was not the case at all here. I would highly recommend them.
