The Edgewater was absolutely lovely! The staff, our hotel room, the venue, the food. My wife and I opted to have a destination wedding in Seattle. It was very hard picking a venue/food everything sight unseen. One of the reasons we chose the Edgewater besides the excellent location on the water was due to their very timely/professional responses to inquiries. Catrina w/ the Edgewater was always very fast to respond - and very thorough in her responses. In regards to pricing, the Edgewater was very reasonable compared to any other venues within the same level. We had a small wedding (15 people +3 babies including ourselves). At first, I wasn't sure they were going to give us any special treatment because we were getting married there. The rooms are rather pricey at the edgewater and we picked a mid-level room...they didn't offer any specials because we were getting married. However, we arrived one day prior to the wedding and tried for a very early check-in and only had to wait a few hours before the room was ready. We wandered around town, it was no trouble. When the room was ready, we found that we had been double-upgraded. We were blown away - and the room was absolutely beautiful. The staff sent us champagne and chocolate -covered strawberries that night. Our wedding ceremony and reception was held in the same room(The Forest Room) - which had a great view of the water and a very large heated balcony. The manager, Jeff greeted us prior to the wedding and checked on us throughout the night. Another manager, Vinn(?), did as well. The room was setup almost perfectly - we did rearrange the chair for the ceremony, but no big deal. Our servers for the night, Willy and Bob were OUTSTANDING! Willy was the main point of contact - and he was literally ON POINT. Our appetizers and food were unbelievable. Our guests could not say enough about how perfect the food and everything was. We would definitely recommend the Edgewater to anyone.

Everyone from valets and front desk staff to event coordinators was incredibly helpful and accommodating. They anticipated our every need, and really listened to our vision for the evening. The setting itself was absolutely gorgeous. We just can't thank everyone at the Edgewater enough for the perfect day start to finish!

This was the perfect Seattle venue. You can’t beat the views – getting married as the sun sets behind the Olympics is simply stunning. Everyone raved about the amazing salmon and steak. This was not your typical wedding food. The staff was very attentive to every detail. We worked with Christiana and she made sure that everything went seamlessly. We didn’t have anything too out of the ordinary as far as wedding details, and so we decided to not hire a day-of wedding coordinator. I’m glad we didn’t because the Edgewater does such a great job of coordinating everything on their own. We also had the rehearsal dinner in the Forest Room (adjoining the restaurant) and they did a fabulous job of coordinating and managing that party as well. We would recommend using the Edgewater for any event – they truly know how to do everything right.

The Edgewater was a dream venue! I can't describe how amazing my reception was there. It was just gorgeous. the food was great, the wait staff and bartenders were wonderful, and the event coordinators were fantastic to work with! Catherine and Christiana were so responsive, even when I asked tons of questions! My only complaint was that the mark up on the alcohol was a bit excessive, but in the end it didn't even matter. Everything was completely taken care of, I never worried about a thing! Totally worth it. :)

The ballroom at the Edgewater is stunning. Our wedding day turned out to be a torrential downpour (very Seattle), and the view was still beautiful. The staff were all helpful and, most importantly, took care of everything the day-of (except for a few things we did ourselves). It turned out perfect :-)

I had my ceremony in a church and the reception at the Edgewater, however they also provide ceremony set-up if desired. The Olympic Ballroom is the most beautiful venue location for the quintessential Seattle wedding. The large bay windows look out at Elliott Bay and the Olympic mountains, with occasional passing ferries. You will save money on decorations since the room's bay windows, chandeliers and mirrors are very elegant - I only ordered the table centerpieces. I had 90 guests attend, seated comfortably at 10 rounds of 9. The food and service were outstanding. The only thing I would warn about is that they apparently have frequent turnover of their event managers (mine left half way through the planning process and the new EM was not up to speed; caused a lot of unneeded stress), so even though the venue comes with an EM I would recommend getting a day-of coordinator as well to ensure consistency.

Lisa and her staff of miracle workers turned my unknown vision into a work of art. Everything was top notch, the food was amazing (mashed potato bar for dinner, and FRENCH FRIES with dipping sauce at 10pm were major highlights!). I seriously could not have planned my wedding from across the country without her.

That is to say nothing of the venue and its amazing beauty. The pictures do not do it justice (and you're speaking to a reformed skeptic of the 'urban lodge' being too cutesy - its not! Super stylish and modern!)

You will not be disappointed! Other than saying "YES!" to my then fiance, now husband, choosing the Edgewater was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

My husband wanted a venue with a waterfront view. And, I wanted to be sure his (only) request was satisfied. We looked at a few places in the area: Palisades and McCormick & Schmick's in SLU, but nothing compared to the Edgewater Hotel in terms of the wedding space. Their ballroom is spectacular. The food spectacular. Their rooms are spectacular.

Cons: the guest experience at their hotel was average to below. For some reason, getting room service, valet and front desk service was very difficult. The rooms are beautiful, don't get me wrong - but if it takes more than 2 hours to get a cart and/or food delivered to your room it impacts your stay. And, if you do the diligence to call your car up to the lobby in advance and its not there when you arrive, you question the level of service they provide their guests. Granted it may have been an off day, but a simple explanation would've helped us to understand.

We also had some communication breakdown between us and the onsite coordinator during our wedding. Everything leading up to our wedding was excellent. However, day-of we felt like the follow through on our contract was below average. Perhaps that wasn't intentional, but we did leave the Edgewater with a feeling our onsite coordinator checked out the day of our wedding.
