From start to finish Molly Taylor and her team at the Hyatt were top notch. Always available to answer questions, make suggestions, provide support and recommendations. The planning process was smooth, easy, and fun because of Molly! Having my wedding at The Hyatt overlooking the river was my dream since my husband and I first met and discovered it back in 2008. Molly helped us make this a reality. She coordinated the entire weekend, including the rehearsal dinner (which was fantastic- at the Cambridge house!),she made sure everything was handled, prepared, on time and that it all went off without a hitch- which she promised and reassured me (several times!) that it would. The banquet captain, Rene, was also FANTASTIC. She made sure everything at the reception was perfect. It sure was. The food was outstanding! Everyone was commenting about how beautiful and wonderful the entire wedding was. We could not have picked a better venue and group of people to work with. Our gratitude is infinite!

The search for a wedding venue is one of the most important and overwhelming parts of wedding planning. We live in Houston, TX so we were only going to visit venue options once so it was vital we did a lot of research and narrowed it down prior to our visit 15 months before the event. We were lucky enough to be connected with Molly Taylor who was willing to send us information via emails and talk to us over the phone before our visit. When we stepped foot on the Hyatt property we were in love but we didn't know if it would be in our budget. The convenience and professionalism that is a part of the Hyatt package was the perfect pair and sealed our decision for us. We could not have asked for a better coordinator, Molly Taylor, or a better venue overall. The food was amazing (not your typical bland hotel food), the ambiance was perfect and the views outstanding. All of our guests had the time of their lives and complimented everything about the Hyatt numerous times. They were also very open to us as we are a same sex couple and we appreciated that we weren't treated any differently than the next couple. We are looking forward to having more celebrations at this Hyatt in the future as we had the best time of our lives!

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort was the perfect place for my wedding. As most of my guests were driving 2+ hours or flying to come to the wedding this resort was perfect for the wedding weekend. Everything went so smoothly from the beginning to end. My wedding coordinator, Corrin was amazing. I would recommend her to anyone I know getting married in the future. Yes, they are a little pricey but you are getting what you pay for and everything is amazing! They put everything together perfectly without any issues. If I could do it all over again the exact same way I would in a heartbeat.

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay was PERFECT! I honestly don't understand how people could make a bad comment about anyone at the Hyatt. We worked with a few different catering managers while planning our wedding, but we ended with Corrin Savigiano who was SO helpful. She would call/email constantly so we always remained in touch. Everyone, from the bell hop, to the maid, to the waitresses, to the girls at the check-in desk, EVERYONE makes you feel so welcomed, even if you aren't the bride and groom. They will do anything for you and your guests to make you feel special.

As far as the actual wedding day, the Hyatt was so professional. I thought, since we had over 25 tables, that there would be about 10 Hyatt servers just walking around making sure things were running smooth, but EVERY single table had it's own server. I had guests telling me that their server would go to the bar for them, they wouldn't even have to get up if they didn't want to. The whole wedding was just so smooth and everyone said how beautiful the wedding and the resort were. I would recommend the Hyatt to ANYONE who loves a beautiful outdoor wedding right on the water.

We couldnt have asked for a more perfect day or more perfect group of people to work with. I never had to worry about ANYTHING.

The Hyatt Chesapeake is a GREAT venue for a destination-type wedding that your entire family will love. Throughout our wedding weekend, I loved being able to walk through the resort and see family and friends, whether it was at the spa, at the Water's Edge Grill for breakfast or just walking the grounds of the proeperty - - it really enabled me to spend more quality time with my guests than if I only saw them for the day. My guests were a slightly older, more urban group from the Northeast and everyone RAVED about the quality of the food and bar selection, saying it was the best quality they've seen at a wedding (I did the "stations" and it was worth the extra money!).

ALL of the service managers were great - from Christina at the Spa, Chad at the River Marsh golf course, Patrick at the Water's Edge Grill, John with Activities and Michael with the lighting/AV, everyone was extremely responsive, professional and as flexible as they could be. But the MVP of all the managers was the Catering Manager, Kelly Motley! If you consider the Hyatt, ask for her. There was no question too small that she wouldnt address immediately and professionally (some of the older posts about the Hyatt's responsiveness pre-dated Kellys' arrival at the resort). She was organized and kept detailed notes on my requests so it felt personal, even though she handles a lot of weddings at once. I really felt like she worked with me and my budget to make sure I got a good value for my cost. So, yes, the Hyatt isnt cheap, but you really do get high quality for the money, both in terms of service as well as the product.

My recommendations to future Hyatt brides: Find out if there are other weddings the same day as yours! Columbus Day weekend had numerous weddings on that Saturday, whereas I was lucky and was the only one. If sharing your day with another bride would bother you, keep that mind.
Hire a day-of coordinator. Its a huge resort and there are a lot of logistics to coordinate for the day, so you'll want someone there to help you. Also, get the Hyatt Credit Card from Chase (you get 3 Gold Passport Points per $ spent at a Hyatt!). Make sure you book enough rooms at the Hyatt -- I totally underestimated how many people would love to stay at the resort and they end up selling out of room for Friday night! So, make sure you get enough b/c your guests will want to stay there! Finally -- get some lighting from SWANK (the Hyatt's A/V company). The ballrooms look a little stale in regular light, but it was exquisite with some amber uplighting and intelligent lighting. Totally worth the investment. And dont worry - - you cant see the color of the carpet when the tables are all set up.

If you want a great destination that your guests will love, where the food/liquore is extremely high-end and where the service is turn-key, I highly recommend the Hyatt (particularly Kelly Motley!)

This is an absolutely gorgeous place to get married. Originally I did not want an outdoor wedding, but after seeing this place I knew I wanted to get married outside overlooking the water. I loved that they had several ceremony and reception locations on their property to choose from and they also had good backup options in case it rained on our wedding day (thankfully it didn't and the weather was absolutely gorgeous!). The Hyatt's event coordinator worked very well with our wedding planner to make sure we had everything we needed. My one small complaint was that we had a horrible run-in with a swarm of flies that got into our room (can't really escape the flies since you're near the water) but the hotel sprayed our room and thoroughly cleaned it to our satisfaction. Hotel staff is extremely accomodating and the food was EXCELLENT! My guests are still raving about it!

My one small complaint was that we had a horrible run-in with a swarm of flies that got into our room (can't really escape the flies since you're near the water) but the hotel sprayed our room and thoroughly cleaned it to our satisfaction. Hotel staff is extremely accomodating and the food was EXCELLENT! My guests are still raving about it! Read less

This location is AMAZING with the Bay right there and the hotel itself is great. We did our ceremony on the Breakwater Pavilion, which was more than perfect with water all around you and the privacy we wanted. Molly Taylor, with catering, was awesome and very easy to work with. She made the planning process very smooth. The food was what we expected and the rooms where the guests stayed were perfect with water views.

While all wedding planning is stressful and overwhelming, the weekend of our wedding everything was amazing. The food was raved about by all guests! During the reception the bride and groom had our own attendant who was with us and helping us all night. Everyone was so helpful and made our night absolutely perfect. The hotel was beautiful and allowed for amazing photos. Our friends and family also enjoyed the many amenities that the Hyatt offered them! Thank you!

We had our wedding at the Hyatt. It was PERFECT!! We worked with Kate and she did everything she could to make our lives easier and make the day special for us. We did all of our planning in just 5 weeks!!
Our guests complimented everything about the wedding. They loved the facility, the location of the ceremony (the Manor Lawn), the food, and the staff that was working during our event. People are still calling and commenting on how everything was perfect. The staff couldn't have been any more accomodating or pleasant to work with. We wish we could do it all again!!!

Kristyn was our site coordinator. She was EXCELLENT! very professional and at the same time, very caring. She really made me feel like I have one of my girlfriends pulling strings for me at the Hyatt.
The Hyatt resort itself... good value. but they don't budge much for anything... like giving away too much free stuff or extra comp rooms. We're big time negotiators and we couldn't get them to do any extra "giving"... it's all good though, the venue was ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I have amazing pictures on the grounds. My guests were all raving about how beautiful the scenery was.

This truly is the place to get married outside! The pier was the perfect setting for our ceremony. The prices were a little high, but you are paying for the wonderful resort and for the beautiful setting. As in the other reviews, a few snags along the way and I handled the details pretty thoroughly from the beginning. Food was wonderful and the setting made for beautiful pictures.
Our family was very happy we chose this great place to stay. Everyone had a lot of fun and there was plenty to do.
The spa was wonderful as well, hair, make-up, etc.

We had our ceremony out on the Manor Lawn. Although it was close to 90 degrees, there was a nice breeze from the water, so it certainly helped cool things down! I did not have a wedding planner, but the wedding coordinator at the hotel was so amazing I did not need one (Molly Taylor)! She was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the planning and the day of. The hotel as a whole is beautiful with so many different things to do, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who has a lot of family and friends coming in from out of town, as it is a great place for a mini vacation as well!

This was certainly a beautiful place for our July wedding. We were married on the breakwater pavillion and we couldn't have found a better location. The hotel was obviously gorgeous and very nice for all of our guests however if I was not so organized I think that there would have been many more issues. There were a few minor hiccups over our wedding weekend that didn't ruin the experience but certainly caused some frustration. For example, a few people who reserved rooms in our block when they went to check in were told there was no reservation! One of my guests ended up sleeping on the floor because they did not reserve the correct room. For our rehersal dinner, which we had in one of the conference rooms, my mother in law specifically requested no nuts because I have a tree nut allergy.Well luckily I'm a picky eater anyway because I didnt any of the things that contained nuts.I had a wonderful time but I know that my in-laws,parents and a few guests were quite upset but the lack of organization and coordination. I think the most confusing part of everything was the fact that I went through 3 wedding coodinators from the time we booked the wedding until the actual day. I would recommend this place to other brides but caution them to stay on top of everything.

We loved the Hyatt! Great location -- it feels like a destination wedding because for local DC/MD/VA/DE folks it's only a couple of hours away.

We got married on the Manor Lawn, and had our cocktails on the floating dock, which was really unique. Our reception was in a ballroom.

We worked with Kate -- and she was great and very helpful -- I have done professional event planning for my job, so I was a probably a bit harder to work with than most brides. She took a lot of questions and emails from me.

The food was wonderful, and our banquet captain Renee was awesome. It is on the pricier side -- $150-$200+ per person (including fees/tax) for the wedding packages, but you can always negotiate for a different package. You could probably get around $110-$120 per person if you are flexible.

The only negatives I would say are that not all of our guests received our gift bags upon checkin, some of them had to ask for it. Even when staying in our block, I think that the front desk should ask if they are there for a wedding. Also, I felt that as the bride and groom, we did not get great room assignments. Our parents complained and got upgraded to a nice room, and the suite that I had for my bridal suite was smaller than the one I was shown before. It all worked out OK - but I would make sure you get the rooms you want. We did not like paying for each location (ceremony, cocktail), but in the end it was worth it. Try to negotiate! I only wish we had negotiated to have a free stay during our 1 year anniversary, we were so busy that we did not get to enjoy the resort! The pool is spectacular!

I highly recommend uplighting in the ballroom to make it more intimate. Otherwise you might feel like you're at a conference. I loved the square table and rectangle table options.

My guests loved it, and everyone had a wonderful time. The manor lawn is beautiful and everything really went off without a hitch. Breakfast buffet was good, and the spa was great.

We really did have a dream wedding at The Hyatt. All of our guests thanked us for bringing them to such a beautiful place. There definitely were a few snags along the way and you have to be ready to manage the situation pretty closely, but in the end it was perfect and the staff were very attentive and professional. The food was also amazing. Everyone commented how it was the best hotel food they ever had. We were very happy and are glad we chose this space for our wedding.

The Hyatt is absolutely beautiful. I never dreamed I'd be able to afford to have our wedding here but the coordinator did her best to work with our budget. We had a few bumps in the road, and we had to contact them monthly because the automatic payments we set up were not coming out on time. I also felt slightly rushed on my wedding day. But all in all I had a wonderful wedding.

OK So I have mixed emotions about this venue. In terms of it being a beautiful place to get married, I loved it, but the staff needs some work. It took so time for my wedding coordinator to respond to our requests and sometimes she completely ignored our wedding planner until we stepped in. She was however available to hound us about the money and getting paid, and I am not the first to complain about that. Other vendors when they found out where we were getting married warned us about how they can be. They lost a package of ours on the day of the wedding because they went to the bathroom and left it outside. they didn't have the correct linens. And they tried to overcharge us for so many items just because we needed a large ballroom. It was way too stressful honestly.

On the up side, it was a fun place to stay at for a weekend get away. I enjoyed the activities and the food was amazing! They we're cordial once we arrived and they were paid, but I had about 3 breakdowns that weekend alone due to the pure stress they applied!

If you want to visit or even go for a vacation, its a great place, but for a wedding, you may find that they are a bit more stubborn that you care to deal with on your wedding day. In the end, it came out ok, but the stress leading up to it was not worth it, at all.
