The Marriott created the PERFECT setup for our wedding. We had about 100 guests and fit with space to spare in the Pearl Ballroom. Let me start by saying Alison was incredible! She went above and beyond and worked so well with our fantastic wedding planner (Michelle Amarillo Event Planning if you're curious!). The Marriott went above and beyond to accommodate our out of town family and any menu requests- the experience was incredible there and I would recommend it to anyone who prefers a traditional setting. We made use of the Rotunda space for our cocktail hour and moved to the ballroom for dinner and dancing. The service was exceptional and the bartenders were very professional- the food was delicious and all served in a timely manner- I've experience plated dinners where the last entrees came out an hour after the first ones but the Marriott managed to get everything out in a timely manner so our guests had plenty of time to enjoy themselves. Bonus- they must have experienced that brides and grooms don't often get to eat their meals so we had our own entree selections waiting for us in our room at the end of the night!

There ONLY two negative things I can say- and the first one I can't hold it against the Marriott because this was just two individuals out of a whole staff of amazing people- but the bartenders in the Rockefeller bar that evening were not very polite- my father wanted to get everyone together for a nightcap (mind you, this was about 20 people and the bar had not closed yet) and the bartenders reacted like this was an inconvenience...instead of the potential for a great tip! The second was that there was construction that we did not know about so it was a slightly unpleasant shock, but it did not interfere with anything!

Overall the experience at the Marriott was fantastic and I would recommend it! It was a great time, a classy space, and if I had to choose again I would still go with the Newport News Marriott at City Center

We recently held our wedding reception at the Marriott, and it was wonderful! Alison, their wedding planner, was so easy to work with, even when we had a couple of last minute requests. The ballroom was beautiful, and the service was impeccable. Our guests had nothing but compliments about the food and service! Our out of town guests enjoyed strolling around the fountain and the City Center shops during their stay at the Marriott. Our wedding was an amazing experience, and Alison and the Marriott played a huge role in making it so memorable! Thank you!!

My husband and I just got married a few days ago and had our reception at the Newport News Marriott. Alison and the entire staff was wonderful to work with. The communication between Marriott and I was great, they quickly responded to all my questions and concerns throughout the planning process. Marriott was very flexible and the service and staff was impeccable. We had staff dedicated to my husband and I the whole night which was wonderful.

Aside from the service, the venue was just magnificent. The City Center area is peaceful, clean and the view of the fountain was beautiful. We had the cocktail hour in the Rotunda and dinner in the Grand Ballroom.

Do not be afraid of the carpet! Once all the tables, decorations and lighting was up, you could not notice the carpet at all!! The quality and taste of the food delicious, we choose the NY Steak Strip and Lemon Herb Salmon with Shrimp.

I could not be any happier with Marriott- I definitely recommend the Marriott for future brides!

Alison, at Marriott made my wedding reception for 350 people a breeze to plan. Alison was professional, responsive, flexible, creative, and calming (I was a nervous bride). The Marriott is a beautiful venue to host your reception - the rotunda and waterfall are scenic for wedding pictures.
