I work as a professional wedding planner and, when a friend of mine was getting married, naturally I wanted to help plan and coordinate her wedding so her and her fiance would not have to hire somebody for this task. Throughout her year-long engagement, as with all of my couples, I would reach out to her to discuss the next steps in the planning process and let her know I'm available if she has any questions, concerns or needs any help. To summarize, she barely needed my help with anything, which I originally wrote off as, "Wow, she's just super organized and wants to plan her wedding out in its entirety - I will just be there to coordinate the wedding, then." It wasn't until the month-of, as we worked out a detailed wedding timeline including who is responsible for what tasks on the day-of, did I realize why she didn't need my help: It was because of the Westin Alexandria.

Almost all of my usual tasks as a wedding coordinator were listed under what their venue coordinator, David, would be responsible for. At first, I thought there might have been a mistake in the task assignments. Nope.

On the morning-of, the unthinkable happened: I came down with a severe infection. I rushed to the ER where they promptly told me I wouldn't be going anywhere. Despite my personal struggles, I worried more that I couldn't attend the wedding. I quickly called David's assistant and explained my situation. She assured me she'd take care of everything to take my place and we went over the timeline. A few hours later, David e-mailed me letting me know things were going great. And things were going great! I was able to attend the reception for a short time and saw for myself.

All in all, if every venue had coordinators like this, I would be out of a job! I was personally impressed and never encountered venue coordinators that allowed couples to skip out on hiring their own coordinator entirely. I highly recommend couples to check out and consider the Westin Alexandria.

David Magsumbol at the Westin will give you the wedding of your dreams! The Westin is beautiful and affordable. David is the best coordinator in the entire DC area! 5 star service. He and the Westin are simply the best! Could not have picked a better venue!

The restaurant/bar catered our event and the food was amazing! The white glove service was also a nice touch.

Working with David Magsumbol and his team at the Westin made my wedding day dreams come true. They were very flexible and easy to communicate with. Our guests raved about the food (all organic!) for the cocktail hour and reception and the serving staff were very courteous. If we had any issues, David and his team were always receptive to make sure we were 100% pleased. David definitely went above and beyond to make sure we had the best customer service experience.

Also, the location also has a great space for taking photos in the patio in front of the hotel -- it doesn't have any foot traffic to interrupt photo sessions. Even the lobby of the hotel is picturesque! Our out-of-town guests enjoyed the free shuttle around Old Town Alexandria which allowed them to do sight-seeing before and after the wedding. My only quip is that the lighting staff should be more organized about the lighting options, so that wedding-novice brides, such as myself can know what the lighting will look like. However, the lighting on my wedding worked out beautifully -- it was just difficult to understand the lighting differences. Nevertheless, I cannot say enough how wonderful my experience was with the Westin and I'm so happy we chose them for our venue.

When I first started looking into venues for our wedding I was nervous about going with a hotel because although there were a lot of benefits, I was afraid it wouldn't feel personal. My fears were COMPLETELY unfounded.

Our coordinator, David Magsumbol, was incredible, start to finish. He was always on top of things and I didn't have to spell everything out. He's clearly done this before because he anticipated things that I hadn't thought of and took care of them. Despite being someone who likes to have everything under control and make all decisions right away, there were a lot of decisions I just couldn't make on my own and David was AMAZING at helping me and my hubby figure them out.

The venue was beautiful. I wasn't crazy about the carpeting and the chairs in the ballroom because they didn't really go with my colors at all (plum and pewter), but I didn't want to shell out the extra bucks for chiavari chairs (which are mega uncomfortable anyway!). The lighting and other elements came together perfectly to make it all blend and work well together. David and his team were very accommodating of the space we'd need for our small party and it all worked out very, very well.

The only thing that was a little 'meh' for me was that sometimes it would take a while to receive a response via email, but this is partially on me because a) I ask a LOT of questions and b) I'm not really a 'pick up the phone and call' person, and as busy as the Westin events staff are, I imagine they can't sit at their desks answering my silly emails all day. The bottom line is that all my questions were answered and as we got to our big day, I didn't have any worries at all! Isn't that what all brides dream of?

DEFINITELY would recommend, over and over and over again.

The Westin Alexandria made all our wedding dreams come true! Our wedding was everything that I envisioned it to be, and I have the Catering Manager, David, to thank for that. I so enjoyed working with David; he was always professional, attentive, and especially kind. All the members of the Westin team--Agnes, Beth, Jessica, Rachel, Marie, and Guillermo--were truly wonderful to work with. Every single detail was attended to with care and diligence, resulting in an absolutely stunning and seamless wedding affair. Many of our guests said that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended and felt that the flow of the event and the service were well executed.

The chef is to be acknowledged for creating incredibly delicious appetizers and meals for our affair. Many of our guests were also amazed with the appetizers and meals, stating it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding. I was extremely impressed when one of my gluten-free guests told me that the chef came to her table to introduce himself and ensure that her meal was being prepared properly.

The Westin Alexandria is a gorgeous hotel that offers a “boutique” atmosphere. Every member of the hotel staff was accommodating and clearly devoted to making sure that our guests had a pleasurable stay. The newly redesigned restaurant/bar is stunning and offered fantastic meals. I heard countless compliments from our guests about how delicious and artistic the food was. Our guests really enjoyed the location of the hotel because they were easily able to access Washington, DC, and tour the Old Town Alexandria area. One guest from California said, “I felt like this was a true Virginian destination wedding.”

This hotel is in a class above all the rest. You will be extremely impressed with every aspect of the hotel: the contemporary design, the gracious and accommodating staff, and the amazing food.

Working with David at the Westin was a wonderful experience. He was very flexible with our needs and went far above what I expected in making us feel welcomed. Our guests had a great time and the Banquet staff was polite and responsive. The Food was Great. I'm also glad we got a Kids room for the wedding where kids could go and play for the night. We even had beds in the room which helped alot since we had a few toddlers who fell fast as sleep. I would recommend the Westin in Alexandria and specially David M. as a the main point of contact. We truly had a memorable experience.

We had a great experience with the Westin Alexandria. David the catering manager was wonderful to work with and the rest of the staff also was great. David helped us come up with a lot of ideas for our reception, such as the order of events, linens and ceremony decoration. They were very accommodating and flexible, especially with our many food requests and allergies, and the food was amazing!! We were able to come up with a menu that accommodated everyone and all our guests raved about the food. It was a wonderful location very close to Old Town and easy access to the airport and Metro.

Our first meeting with David was shared with another couple. Not a good first impression. All of the perks that he said he would throw in were lies. He said everything to get us to contract. The date I wanted was given to another group even though he held it for us. Our event wouldn’t bring in enough revenue for that date. David was hard to get in contact with because he was too busy or dealing with personal issues. Securing a room block was also a nightmare. It took Shannon almost 2 months to get the agreement finalized. When my guests called to make reservations, the room block information wasn’t in the system. I told David that I didn’t feel confident that my expectations would be met. I even complained to the GM. The day before my wedding, my suite reeked of smoke and they told me they couldn’t find me another room but they did and said they would comp me for my troubles. Never got that comp. We never got our food in the holding room immediately after the ceremony even though David told us we would. Housekeeping threw away personal items in the suite. David asked if he could leave early because his feet were hurting but asked if he could get photos to show future clients even though I had a wedding planner who did all the work. The final bill was incorrect because it didn’t show all of my deposits. We heard back from the Westin a month after the wedding saying they made an error in their calculations and we still owed money. We complained. It was THE WORST experience!

The Westin Alexandria responded with the following comments:

Thank you for choosing the Westin Alexandria for your wedding. I was disappointed to learn of the inconveniences you experienced and would like to extend my sincere apologies. We host as many as 30 weddings a year and numerous other significant social events and consistently get high marks for our food and service ( David in particular) so it is quite surprising that we were not able to better execute on your behalf. We will certainly work to understand your points of view to see how we can be better served for the future. Thank you.

We had a wedding reception at the Westin. The venue is gorgeous!! Definitely one of the better venues in the area. The food is AMAZING! Although one of our guests' food was cold and another had the wrong meal brought to them. By the time we got there, the appetizers were cold. (According to my mom, they were never hot.) We did have issues with the room block. My guests were calling in and requesting a room but when they mentioned our wedding, the customer service had no idea about it. Once I left our coordinator know, she fixed the issues right away. Sometimes they are very hard to get ahold of or to respond to your emails, but they will get back to you. Shannon Peters is very helpful in making your reception the way you want it (that's part of the reason we went with them!)

We had our wedding at the Westin Alexandria on April 24, 2010. Everyone who attended described the location as 'contemporary' and 'elegant'. The food was spectacular - from the appetizers to the main courses of beef, bass and squash ravioli for our vegetarian guests. Shannon Peters, the coordinator, was outstanding. Her responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility is unparalleled. The banquet room was beautiful and modern. The lobby made a beautiful location for photos. The only hiccup was in the room block for our guests. We had over 100 people coming from out of town, the majority of which had some issues booking the rooms into our block. Once I brought these issues to the hotels attention, it was resolved.

The Westin is a very new hotel, so the entire facility is in really nice shape and is very attractive. There is a large area for the cocktail hour with plenty of space for guests. The package included everything from chairs to linens to china. I didn't have to worry about much. The pricing was very reasonable and I felt that we were treated very well. My only complaint is that I felt that I had to do some of the "driving" with respect to scheduling the tasting, setting up the room block, and a couple of other small details. The event coordinator was a little tough to get in touch with at the beginning, but she was more accessible as the event got closer. The hotel itself has a couple of issues with customer service, and some of our guests had a tough time making reservations in our room block. If you book with the Westin, you will have a nice event, but you will have to stay on top of most of the details.
