I can't say enough about the fabulous Sales and Catering Team at the Omni. Working with Sara Wanderlingh made everything about our wedding a breeze. From the rehearsal, to the ceremony in 1/3 of the ballroom, to the cocktail hour in the atrium, to the reception in the 2/3 of the ballroom, everything about our experience with the Omni was a solid 10. Sara responded to my frantic e-mails throughout the year I was engaged, instantaneously! She took great care placing all of my personal items throughout the wedding and making sure everything was rounded up for us to pack up later. I really appreciated the complimentary bottles of champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, buffet take out boxes, and leftover cupcakes placed in our suite. They even went to far as to clean and reorganize everything for when my husband and I returned to the suite that night. We had one snafu with my mother-in-law's reservation being cut by a day, but that was easily fixed and Sara responded to the situation personally. The food prepared by Chef Josh was excellent and my groom and family kept saying how delicious everything was. Sara even took the time to assign wait staff to my grandmothers who were seated in the reception early and saw that they were waited on and taken care of. The Omni made my wedding day a dream come true and made for fabulous photos on the Downtown Mall. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to get married in Charlottesville!

We had our November wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, & reception) at the Omni Charlottesville and cannot say enough good things about the Omni. From the start, the Sales and Catering teams were amazing - they were very responsive, had great suggestions, and played a huge part in the success of planning our wedding. We had our ceremony in one-third of the ballroom and it was transformed into our reception area during the cocktail hour. This transformation was absolutely stunning! The Omni staff followed our decoration wishes perfectly, and everything looked beautiful. And the Atrium was a beautiful place for cocktail hour! Our guests raved about the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Downtown Mall. Additionally, the food and drink service was wonderful at the reception. The food was delicious (all of our guests said it was the best wedding food they've had!) and the service staff made sure it was replenished. The staff also made sure our wine and champage glasses were never empty. Their prompt service helped to make our reception very enjoyable! Beautiful venue for a wedding and great package options for food/beverage/facilities!

The Omni and Sara at the Omni did a wonderful job assisting us with almost every detail of the reception. Sara had a great attention to detail and help make the little details pop. The timing of the meal was so seamless and smooth that it made the night so much more enjoyable because we weren't waiting for food. I couldn't say enough good things about the Omni. It is a great location for a very Charlottesville wedding that captures the aspects of local Charlottesville. The downtown mall is at the doorstep.

My husband and I could not have been happier with our experience at the Omni! We mainly interacted with Sara and Chef Josh, both of whom went above and beyond to make us feel like their only clients.

We wanted a multi-course wine-paired dinner, focusing on local wines and ingredients--definitely not standard wedding fare. Chef Josh came up with an AMAZING menu that gave us that while also catering to several food allergies. Dinner was beyond amazing, and the desserts were even better. I still dream about the caramelized fennel and goat cheese crostini appetizer. People loved the variety of food and how unique and delicious it was. It was a wonderful touch to come back up to the room after the wedding and find that the Omni had left some chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne for us--such a sweet surprise!

Sara priced out special ordering the local wines and beers that we wanted to feature, and she was very helpful when we decided to purchase it ourselves to save on costs. She helped us coordinate delivering it to the Omni, making sure it stayed safe before the wedding, etc.

Another way that the Omni went above and beyond is that they would let us use their ballroom to practice our first dance when it was not in use. It was wonderful to be able to practice in the actual space (we're dancers). The dance floor was a good size, and everyone was always helpful and prompt in their interactions with us, especially Sara! She was a godsend in helping to coordinate everything...we never worried about anything because we knew that she had it covered!

The atrium is one of my favorite spaces in Charlottesville, and it made the perfect setting for our ceremony. The Omni closed off the area to outsiders, so we didn't have people walking through our ceremony. And I loved coming down the glass elevator for my grand entrance. The ballroom is a pretty standard hotel ballroom, so we had some uplighting to change the mood a bit, and it was perfect.

I can't say enough great things about the Omni! Every single staff member was beyond amazing. Edward Labranche makes you feel like you're the only bride he's working with and he was so flexible and professional. The cocktail hour, Reception space, decor, and food were amazing! 2 weeks later and guests are still talking about how great the food was. Every single guest that had the steak said it was one of the best, if not THE best steak they had ever had and the bacon wrapped scallop appetizer was unbelievable! They are also still talking about how beautiful the hotel and reception were. The Omni worked with our budget, made us feel like celebrities, really. Top notch team, beautiful hotel, phenomenal staff. Highest recommendations!

We had our cocktail hour and reception at the Omni and it was just amazing! The food was outstanding! The events coordinator Sara is just wonderful in every way. I had a ton of personalized items and decorations that I wanted to use and all I had to do was put it all in one of the Omnis storage rooms and just tell Sara what I was thinking. The day of my wedding I didn't have to worry about where the vendors were, if the decorations were up or anything. Sara and her team at the Omni took care of everything. I couldn't ask for things to go smoother. On top of Sara's dedication the Omni staff was also just fantastic. The people at the front desk were very attentive and bent over backwards for anything I needed. I felt like royalty being there. Besides everything turning out beautifully, at the end of the night Sara and the staff went up our suite (which was free) and cleaned, organized everything. Sara had the gifts put into our room, she also set-up some flowers on our bed, left champagne and a beer for my husband (not a champagne drinker). She also had them put chocolate covered strawberries and the top of our wedding cake. Everything was just absolutely amazing and I couldn't pick a better place to have my wedding. She also had the staff put chocolate cake in my parents suite :) Thank you Omni and especially Sara, you guys were more then anything I could of asked for!

We could not have been more happy with the Charlottesville Omni Hotel. The staff there is incredibly warm, responsive and professional. (Much less snooty than some of the other vendors we considered - Omni has great down-to-earth people). The staff helped us pick our menus, design our floor plan and was incredibly helpful and gracious with our copious hand-made decorations and favors. Their entrees are far more delicious than one would suspect from (even a quite nice) hotel. The cupcakes they provides as a supplement to our wedding cake were to-die-for; we are still receiving comments on the delicious cupcakes. In addition to their top-notch staff, the location is really great for out-of-town guests who want to explore Charlottesville on foot, or by utilizing the free CAT trolley. I would definitely host another party or convention at the Omni if the opportunity arises, they are easy to deal with, and they deliver what they promise.

We could not have been more impressed with the professional and helpful staff at The Omni. They helped us from day 1 to pick out our menu, floor layout, photography locations, and select our other vendors. Nicole Marinchick was absolutely wonderful to work with during the planning process and she helped run a flawless wedding on the day of the event. They were flexible and more than accommodating, they went the extra mile to show us a good time and we definitely noticed, as did our guests! Everyone had a wonderful time and the hotel was extremely helpful the day after event as well making sure we got all our loose ends tied up! I would highly recommend The Omni for a wedding ceremony and reception!!!
