Choosing the Marriott was an easy decision for our wedding with its proximity to the church and the amenities it provided to guests. We had the opportunity to work with Christie and she was outstanding! Planning a wedding from out of state is not easy but she was incredibly flexible and I was impressed with our ability to plan much of the wedding via phone and email. When we were able to meet in person, the professionalism, kindness, and desire to make this event perfect was incredibly relieving! We had picked a very difficult weekend for our wedding with 2 other large events occurring at the hotel. However Christie was incredibly hospitable and assisted us in so many ways with having such a large number of guests. My husband and I could not have been happier with the outcome of our event. Leading up to it Christie was wonderful, but the night of our wedding was above and beyond what I had ever anticipated! It was so comforting to see her face at the reception and know that she was there to make the night such a success. I was so impressed with her dedication as well as the other staff! Every staff member we came in contact with that night were absolutely FABULOUS! They truly made our night memorable and perfect!
As for the venue itself, it is perfect for a wedding, especially if you have a large amount of people from out of state, or out of the country, as we did! It is extremely nice to have guests be able to walk upstairs after a fun night rather than worry about transportation.
The venue was beautiful and worked so well to with a cocktail hour and reception!

Maureen and Christie at the Marriott Downtown Des Moines were nothing short of amazing to work with. They made this entire process easy and fun, and very much helped eliminate some of the stress of planning. The pricing was straightforward and we were given an estimate anytime something changed. There were no surprises and we really appreciated that. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning an event for anything!

We had a wonderful experience planning our recent wedding reception at the Marriott downtown. Everyone we worked with was professional, helpful and had a genuine desire to make our day perfect. They were willing to work with us to create the experience that was special to us. Everything went very smoothly during our reception; we didn't worry about a thing. The pricing for some things seems high, but it was worth it for the convenience. We would definitely recommend this location for your next event!
