Our experience with the Marriott was everything my husband and I could have asked for. Our wedding planner/director was phenomenal and she helped us nail down all of the details we needed to make our day so special. She helped me finalize contacts with outside vendors and made sure she was in contact and available the day of the wedding for all areas of the wedding. The Marriott provided us with the best rooms for myself and my husband the entire weekend as well as for our family and friends who where there to help us celebrate. We are so happy with how our wedding played out and we would relive it all again with the Marriott If we could:)

The Charlotte Marriott City Center was absolutely perfect for our wedding. From the very beginning, our wedding coordinator, Katrina Forgo, and the rest of the Marriott staff was absolutely incredible. They were eager to hear our ideas and turn them into a masterpiece. We are still hearing from our friends about how wonderful the Marriott was during our wedding festivities. Our guests continue to rave about how friendly and accommodating the Marriott City Center was. Our reception was absolutely beautiful and the food was superb! We highly recommend the Charlotte Marriott City Center for a wedding!

We hosted our daughter's wedding reception at the Marriott City Center in Charlotte on Saturday August 31, 2013. From the very first meeting when we were deciding where to host the wedding to the final dealings of the actual day everything was perfect. Our wedding coordinator was Mary Beth Chandler and by the time we were finished I felt like I had a friend for life. Mary Beth's professionalism, excitement and enthusiasm was clearly reflected in every detail of Brett's wedding planning. She pointed out details to us that we hadn't even thought about but added greatly to the total effect of the day. Her calm "everything will be fine" demeanor was very reassuring and she was always very accessible by phone or email to both Brett and myself- Very important as I was planning from MA. and Brett from Charlotte.
The Venue- The actual Ballroom was very pretty and the food was good. Loved the extra slider station at the end of the night- Would highly recommend that! We had an extra large dance floor as Brett and Russell hired an awesome band- Sol Fusion-(also highly recommended!) and everyone was on the dance floor all night long! The actual space was very comfortable. During the reception Mary Beth was there to make sure I ate, had a cocktail, checked in with Ed and I (very important details for parents of the bride-) along with checking in with the bride and groom- made sure the band was looked after and made sure all gifts were brought to our rooms during the night- I am sure there were many more details that she took care of without me evening knowing she did! The front desk staff and bellmen could not have been more helpful and accommodating as well as the house keeping staff. Every need of our guests was more than taken care of.
Overall a wonderful wedding weekend! If I could award more "STARS" I would happily for Mary Beth and all the other support people we had at the Marriott City Center.

We held our reception at the Marriott City Center in August, and I cannot say enough about how wonderful they are! Our initial meeting with the staff was amazing, we looked at a few other places that day (not hotel sites) and the Marriott made my mom & I feel the most comfortable and cared for. Once we signed the contract (almost immediately after our meeting) we were soon "assigned" to Mary Beth and she was amazing!! I've never planned a big event before and she helped me every step of the way. I never felt like I was behind, or forgetting something because she kept me on track and walked me thru it. As an example: we were unable to attend the spring tasting and Mary Beth and the banquet staff arranged a private tasting, which I cannot imagine was any less than the grand tasting, for my husband and I at a time that worked for us, they were so accomodating. Which isn't always the case in the wedding industry! The food was delicious and we had plenty of options. The wedding day/night was wonderful anything I asked for or could have asked for was taken care of, Mary Beth remained calmed and assured us the whole time which was just amazing. I seriously did not worry about a thing. The space itself is also beautiful and needed little decorations - which was great for us because most of our guests were out of town and it wouldn't be likely anyone could take them home. If I could have my wedding day all over again (I wish!!) there is no hesitation that I would have it with Mary Beth at the Marriott! the best!!

I have only glowing reviews for the Marriott and Danijela our planner. My first visit to the Marriott I met w/ I believe the sales consultant and her assistant. They were so friendly and answered all my questions honestly and quickly. It wasn't long before I signed the contract. After that I started to work w/ Danijela specifically regarding all the wedding details. Danijela was absolutely fantastic!! Worth her weight in gold. She helped w/ everything from booking groomsmens rooms, to providing pictures of this lighting color, or that lighting color. There wasn't a request or question she laughed at or didn't have an answer for. Also- as an out of town bride I never had issues reaching Danijela. She was so prompt to answer emails or her phone, or her assistant responded on her behalf. There was never any disconnect due to the geographical distance. About a week before the wedding Daniejla spent a good hour on the phone w/ me going over every last thing from special menu requirements for guests and what type of food and beverage would we prefer in the bridal party cocktail hour suite. The day of the wedding flowed just as smoothly as the planning did. Working w/ the Marriott and Danijela made it absolutely unecessary to spend money on any other wedding planner. The day of the wedding Danijela even sewed buttons on the groomsmens jackets and got me bustled into my dress w/ the help of a friendly server. There literally wasn't anything they couldn't take care of. Beyond her help the rest of the staff and hotel was great. They handed out our gift bags, had our room blocks on the concierge floors, the food was wonderful, they delivered every gift and card to our room, and more. I was so bowled over by the service and their friendliness. I honestly can't say enough nice things and will forever be loyal to the Marriott brand.

I visited several hotels in Uptown Charlotte, and ultimately decided on the Marriott. After my initial meeting, they gave me a nice little gift with cute Mr. & Mrs. luggage name tags, candy, etc. in it. Not that something like that made my decision, but it definitely made them stand out. Throughout the process I felt like communication was very good. I felt like I could contact my coordinator anytime and meet anytime as well. She did a fantastic job making sure everything went as planned and even helped with individual requests throughout the wedding planning and weekend. It was definitely a bit pricey, we had a 25k minimum for the entire Grand Ballroom, but the pricing was comparable with all the uptown hotels that could accomodate a 300 person capacity. We ended up being slightly under the minimum and they didn't charge us the difference which was also excellent service.

We had a New Years Eve wedding in Charlotte. I looked at almost every hotel in uptown but no one compared to the Marriott. From the very first meeting they were very attentive and professional. Danijela was our event coordinator and I could not have been happier. My favorite part was if I contacted her and needed something she got back to me right away. I was never waiting for her to get back to me. She was so helpful it made wedding planning so much easier. I have had a lot of friends get married and I've never heard anyone else talk about their wedding planner as fondly as I talked about Danijela. She gave me excellent recommendations and I absolutely loved everything about my wedding. It was exactly as I envisioned, but with none of the stress. My wedding day was so perfect and she handled everything. She even bought a dress to match my wedding theme, now if that isn't great service, I don't know what is. I would absolutely recommend hosting your wedding at the Marriott City Center. To this day people comment on how wonderful our wedding was and how amazing the food was.
