My wife and I selected Embassy Suites because of the great location, easy proximity for guest travel, and the great service we have come to expect from the Hilton brand hotels. We had an amazing day, and the catering and hotel staff made the day go off seamlessly. We had a small ceremony for just our close family and friends, but having the extra company of the guests watching over the ceremony was great. From planning to finish our process lasted 5 months, but with the help of the event coordinators, it was easy to process! Thanks Embassy Weddings! Our coordinator even took care of some last minute chaos, we didn't have to worry about anything! 5 stars across the board! Any way my wife and I could get that amazing room we had?

A special thanks to Allie and Renee for making our wedding planning fun and easy! They provided only the best vendors, and we knowledgeable in all aspects, even if it was simple choices we wanted to go for, making the event just a bit more personalized! Allie, you were great!

I would HIGHLY recommend the Embassy Suites Airport for a wedding reception or other event. I really can't say enough how perfect our day was and that is much thanks to the staff at the Embassy for being so detail oriented. Our vision for our reception truly came to life and there was not 1 thing that we were lacking or unhappy with. The food was PERFECT. The service was PERFECT. Every single detail was PERFECT. I can't tell you how many comments I heard from different people about how it was the most gorgeous wedding reception that they had ever been to! If you're looking for a classy, elegant, and delicious! wedding reception... Embassy Suites Airport is the perfect place to go.

We found this to be an excellent venue for our wedding! We live in DC, but the bride is from the Twin Cities, so we had to do most of our planning long distance. We worked with Renee, who was incredibly helpful and informative. Anything that we wanted to do from a signature cocktail to tweaking the schedule of events, she made happen for us. They were very transparent with the pricing and made things easy for us. There were no surprises at the end.

We had a great time and found them and their recommended cake, DJ, and flower vendors wonderful to work with and of excellent quality. We had a great experience down to the last detail.

The Embassy Suites did a fantastic job with your ceremony and reception. Everything was really beautiful, the food was great and everyone had a good time! You get so much for your money, and their packages save you a lot of planning and money. The only complaint I had was that the seating chart diagram wasn't to scale so some of the tables we wanted close were not where we had planned them to be. Also, do not underestimate the service charge and tax, it was a shock how much that adds up! But overall, it was a fabulous venue and I would recommend them to anyone!

Our reception was perfect. I was planning a wedding out-of-state, and the fact that they have packages made it so much easier for me. The caterer, decorations, flowers, cake, and DJ were all included in our package and since they had worked with Embassy Suites before they were familiar with the location and what works best which made it easy on me. I did not have to interview different caterers or DJ's to find the right one. Everything was great. The cake was delivered, the flowers are delivered and set up, the hotel set up all of the decorations, and the catering is done in their own kitchen, so I didn't have anything to worry about. Everything was beautiful, the staff was great and everyone was very helpful throughout the entire planning process.

We had what I think is the smoothest wedding planning EVER!! The Embassy organized our cake, flowers, centerpieces and other details, and I feel like we just had to show up and everything was taken care of. The staff was so helpful and accommodating. We had the ceremony and reception at the same site which I highly recommend. Our guests are still talking about how great the service was and how easy it was to have everything under one roof. We even did our rehearsal dinner at the hotel and they gave us 20% off all of that. It was a flawless, amazing fun weekend we spent there and our family and friends will always remember what a great time it was!

Overall, I had a great experience, and loved the reception. It was beautifully decorated, and it was nice to not have to handle the details. I do have to say that our dinner was a little slow being served, and there was quite a delay between the end of dinner and the cake being served. There was another reception going on across the hall, and I do believe that the same staff was serving both dinners, hence the slow service.

The best thing about the Embassy Suites is that they give you almost your entire reception in one package. For the price of the package, you get the dinner (buffet or plated), hors d'oeuvres (served butler-style!), a champagne toast, cake (from Buttercream, which is fantastic), cake serving, and flowers (from Stems & Vines). For higher packages you can also get the DJ, limo, and upgrades on the linens, flowers, etc. This package-style reception (we held our ceremony somewhere else, though you CAN do your ceremony here too) made planning the wedding so much easier.

The price was very reasonable considering all the services you're getting. It's charged per-plate, and the 3 packages have different minimum plate counts (50, 100, or 150 plates). They have a pretty good menu selection, with a vegetarian dish that's an actual meal instead of a side salad.

Of course with a "package deal" you have less flexibility because you can't choose your own caterer, florist, etc. but the convenience of footing only one bill makes up for it.

The only reason I give them 3 stars instead of 5 for Quality of Service is because they served the WRONG DINNER at our reception. By that time of the day I didn't care; I was having such a great time that I just let it go -- but it's still a pretty big mistake to make. They served the right vegetable side with the wrong main course.

Overall, though, I would recommend them, especially if you have a tighter reception budget. Book well in advance! We booked 10 months before our wedding and I think if we had waited even a few more weeks, they wouldn't have been available. There were three weddings there that night including ours.

We used this vendor for our Grooms Dinner/Rehearsal Dinner.
We initially contacted this venue after we read on other vendor reviews they will negotiate per plate fee. We had a huge grooms dinner so needed to bring down the per plate fee. They did just that which we appreciated. The service was good the day off and the food was good. I was working with 2 sales people and that was a little confusing because they weren�t always on the same page with our event. This ended up burning us in the end when they charged us $150 for AV which was never discussed with us. I asked about using a TV that was already in the room to play a 3 min. DVD (again already in the room) and was told that was �fine.� From what I can tell now, they assumed the other sales person told us about the fee but based on email trails it was never discussed. When I brought this issue up to them after we were billed, they were slow to respond to emails and then said, they would only make us pay half, which I don�t believe is ethically right if a fee in generally was never discussed. Long story short, we�re still waiting for this issue to be resolved 3 weeks later. The room/food met our needs but the people we worked made it more work than needed.

Food was amazing! However the room we had our food in had a leaking ceiling! Luckily it was in the corner and didn't affect anyone, but was a little embarrassing. Hotel really needs some updates, rooms too. Before the wedding the wedding teams responsiveness to me was excellent. However, the day of the wedding, we had barely anybody there in advance to help guide us. Overall I'd say for the money, it was a pretty good venue. We made it great!
