We worked with the Westin for approximately 14 months before our wedding day. Our original coordinator left us 1/2 way thru and we were reassigned to JoAnne and then Tommie. I have to say that I was very nervous when we were reassigned 2x...Tommie initially contacted my then fiance to introduce herself vs contacting me...the bride and I was a little upset about that...until I spoke to Tommie myself and I absolutely LOVED her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a COMPLETELY diff. experience than all of the other reviewers here- Tommie was extremely helpful throughout the process, offering suggestions and answering NUMEROUS questions. I swear she knows everything. She was there for our rehearsal, setting up for the big day and making sure that everyone was aware of timing, locations, etc.

As for our wedding day, it was PERFECT!! The transitions were flawless and if there were any issues, I had no knowledge of them. I later found out that there was an issue with one of our tall floral arrangements falling and Tommie swiftly stepped in to correct the problem like a superstar.

The only negative would be that we found out our chef changed 4 days before the wedding, which isn't really the hotels fault, but it was a bummer. Tommie had an impromptu tasting, sent us pictures, etc and reassured us that the food would still be fabulous...which it was. The portions were great and everyone loved their food. Oh yeah, the tasting was one of my favorite parts of this process.

The staff at the Westin was more than exceptional. It's a great hotel, close to the airport and it fit our needs perfectly. I would absolutely recommend the Westin for your next event...make sure you ask for Tommie!!

Despite what previous reviews have said, The Westin BWI not only went above and beyond but they always did it with a smile. If you want to feel like you are V.I.P. this is the place to be. We started with someone else, but JoAnne became the new director and we ended up working with her. Everything always happens for a reason and she was awesome to work with!!! They definitely have a repeat customer with us!! Oh, and for any event that involves alcohol make sure you ask for Ewing the bartender. He is the best bartender and will make your drinks right!
As for the catering, the tasting was awesome!!! Our advice, eat little portions before because you will NOT be hungry when you leave. They give you huge portions to try. The food was absolutely yummy! In fact, I still have people telling us that the food was great from the reception.

I absolutely loved my venue! From the first time I walked into it, I knew that was where I was going to get married. But when I looked at the reviews on WW and I got a little worried. But I have very few bad things to say about my experience, and any problems we did have were all minor and got resolved. We kind of stumbled upon the Westin and had a pleasant experience working with Tania as our coordinator until she got promoted and there was a little confusion about who was taking over and getting in touch with people. That happened about a month before my wedding and made me very nervous. But when it all got situated, I feel like the staff, especially JoAnne, worked overtime to make sure I felt comfortable again. They were flexible even until the very end as I decided whether I wanted to get married inside or outside because of the weather. They accommodated us in a lot of my requests and when they couldn't they offered a favorable alternative. And, even though the per person price was a little higher than what I wanted to pay, the level of attention their staff gave to me and my family was amazing. I have never seen the staff give so much attention to everyone at the wedding from the bride and groom to the guests. Even after my wedding I still feel like they cater to us regarding questions I've had. Our pictures are beautiful and we constantly get compliments on how beautiful everything was. Also since I did not have a DOC it was great that I could rely on the staff to make sure everything was the way I wanted it. When they returned all of my items they were washed and packed up as neatly as if they were packing their own items. Walking into the reception area after the wedding, I was so overwhelmed by how beautifully Sandra and Kelly had transformed the room. And the food was amazing, not your typical fare you would have at a wedding. The presentation and flavor were excellent. You definitely get what you pay for and the Westin is really worth the price.

I had my ceremony and wedding reception at The Westin BWI hotel in September 2011. The venue is absolutely gorgeous but the service is awful. I paid over $100 per person with premium open bar and not only did they not have the specifice alcohol on my contract but they ran out of all beer and some of the liquor halfway through my reception. There was another wedding going on at the same time that was 3x larger than my wedding, so I guess that's where all of my alcohol went. I would not recommend having your wedding here.

At first, my wife and I fell in love with the Westin, its great food, clean modern hotel, and open venue. However, the experience did not meet our expectations.

- If you have yet to sign your contract, include every detail within the agreement, price per person, special food or drink selections, site and rental fees, number of bars (we were promised 1 per 50 guests and only received 2 for 250 guests). Our wedding coordinators were replaced three times. I only discovered this news when the front desk informed me they no longer worked there. While our latest coordinator, Janeen, was wonderful, I think it could have transitioned better.

- If you have signed your contract, inquire about the additional security. Unfortunately this hotel is quite vulnerable to theft (no hotel is totally secure, but what bothered me most is how the hotel managed the situation). Security was not responsive, the desk did not want to file a police report, their insurer has never followed up (after six months), their assistant manager is consistently absent from both properties. Not only did I feel like Management did not take the incident seriously, but I was treated as if it was my fault.

- During the reception, have a friend confirm hors doerves are served during the entire cocktail hour and the bars are disassembled after the event (one was broken down 30 min early after they ran out of certain selections!)

- We were promised Starpoints for every dollar spent on our reception, but only received 6800 (which is equivalent accrual for 8 nights to a Gold SPG) for a $35000 reception.

Your wedding should be perfect and your vendors should give every moment of attention it deserves. This is the only vendor I could not recommend, which is unfortunate because I travel frequently and spent 45+ days in Starwood properties per year. Best wishes to your readers on their wedding planning.

this hotel was pretty new when we had our wedding here so it was a bit rough in the beginning so the service and responsiveness definitely improved towards the end so I hesitate to give it negative ratings. It's a beautiful hotel, has a great modern feeling that we were looking for and it's conveniently located. At first I was turned off that it might be considered an "airport hotel" but when you compare the price of the Westin in nearby Annapolis to this one you'll get over that pretty fast. Overall good food. Disappointed in small details. They messed up the seating chart and they had to redo that at the last hour and we had two types of cake that we wanted each of our guest to receive a slice of each-that never happened.
