The Edgewater Hotel is a beautiful venue to have a wedding in Seattle. The staff at the Edgewater, including the catering manager and banquet captain were very accommodating throughout the entire process. The food is good and very timely. The day of our wedding was sunny and we definitely paid for the view that the Olympic Ballroom has to offer. The Terrace and balcony are great for the cocktail hour if it is nice outside. Included in our package was a bridal suite, however we do wish it was a bit closer to the ballroom as it was on the far end of the hotel. The room that the bridesmaids got ready in was a board room and there was no bathroom in the room. We had to share a bathroom with other events that were going on at that time. This made it difficult to get makeup done. I also think that the Edgewater could have done a bit better about accommodating for food being provided in the bridal suite.

Let me just start out by saying that the view from the Olympic Ballroom at the Edgewater is amazing! Nothing that we saw when we looked at venues compared.... but that is just it when it comes to their service, their value, etc.... you are paying BIG bucks for that view. Let's start out with our coordinator. When putting down a deposit and signing the contract we met with a lady who said she loves working there. "I worked here 10 years and don't want to work any where else because what better view do you have than here". Our mistake number one, because after trying to contact her for about a month regarding our second payment, I got an email from another lady who said that she was going to be handling our wedding. How nice. I asked her if we could meet with her since it is weird to start giving all our trust for our big day to someone we haven't met and then after meeting with her we had the same problem. Given they said she had a family emergency, I understanding. But this third person who said she was going to handle our wedding said, "Don't worry we have everything you said you wanted on file and so I will know about all the details and am now up to speed". ... She lied. This third lady we saw ONCE during the entire wedding day. I was introduced to two other people I didn't know when I was shown to the bridal suite where my bridal party was going to be getting ready and then at the reception the "third lady" came up to congratulate us during dinner and I didn't see her at all after that.... But let me get to the rest of everything about the reception. Food was good or so I thought. Apparently, the appetizers were not enough for everyone to get more than one thing. There were three different appetizers, made per amount of people. I heard later on that some guests were only able to get one thing and that often times there was only one person passing one plate around… when you pay for a $11000 minimum you expect more I guess. Next thing, be sure if you work with the Edgewater you are clear to them that tables being released for the buffet should be in chronological order. We arranged our tables assuming they would release table 1 first then 2, and so on. We had table 10 full of people we didn’t really know and that table got released even before our family members. NOT OKAY! Lastly, the banquet captain had them open up the dessert table after announcing we were doing our first dance so everyone flocked to the dessert table and no one was around to watch us dance. Common sense people! Hope this review helps. The view was amazing, but just know that is pretty much what you are paying for here because their service sucks!
