As the father of the bride, I can't think of a better vendor and location to have a wedding rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. The location and the facilities are magnificent. The service and service providers were simply awesome, especially Ms. Cuffee and Food Services Manager. Ms. Cuffee kept everything on track, she was exceptionally diligent as far as communication was concerned, and she made my wife and myself extremely comfortable with everything.

The facility was easy to find, exceptionally clean, and really comfortable for my entire family and friends. Additionally, the entire experience was very affordable.

I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone that has an event such as a wedding, reception, retirement event, etc. to consider using this venue and staff.

The first time my husband and I visited the Westin Richmond we both knew we wanted to book our wedding here. The hotel has a nice relaxing and modern feel to it. The staff was always polite and professional. We had the pleasure of working with Tisha, the event coordinator at the Westin. She was very helpful and always available when we need her. On the day of our wedding I was amazed how everything turned out. The staff made sure everything ran on time, the food was amazing, and everyone was so helpful. Thanks to the Westin our wedding was a dream come true.

First and foremost all I want to say is that The Westin provided amazing customer service as well as handled all of our 'day-of' issues promptly and completely. I would recommend to anybody who is considering this venue!

My wife and I took a look at this place and from the main get-go we loved the ambience through the hotel as well as the nice staff who was helpful throughout. We booked The Westin a couple months prior to our wedding on August 1st. Our main point of contact was with Tisha Cuffee as well as Feliks Schwartz (General Manager).

We used The Westin for our 300 person guest list and used their catering service for half of our guests. From the very beginning, Tisha was at our disposal helping us with any scheduling in terms of us visiting the venue to organize the set-up, flower arrangements, etcetera. She was very prompt with her responses and was more than helpful with anything we needed leading up to the event.

The venue the night of was amazing and the food was very good as well (stated by most of our guests). We had one small 'hiccup' on the evening of the reception and we handled it by talking with management and the whole staff after coming back from our honeymoon. All in all Feliks, Tisha, and company took care of us as they made us feel we were priority #1.

They were polite, professional, and helpful and anything you would ever ask for in a venue and food provider. Thank you guys for making our night memorable and we'll surely do business with yall again.


Best Regards,
Chris

The Westin Richmond was very accommodating to me and our guest. Jessica and Noelle were very helpful. Jessica worked with my coordinator to make sure that my wedding was very special. The hotel is beautiful and the wait staff and the front desk staff were the best! The managers were visible and they introduced themselves and displayed the highest level of professionalism. I would recommend this site for your wedding!

The Westin Richmond hotel epitomizes classic hospitality. Noelle Yount and Jessica Crockett listened closely to our ideals and executed the details with precision on our wedding day. We truly appreciated the elegant accommodations in which our guests stayed. Planning from another state entirely, the support provided made us feel like family. The catering staff created dinner masterpieces from the initial tastings to the reception; we had so many compliments. General Manager Feliks Schwartz even checked in on us throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend the Westin for your next event. Their dedicated professionalism will definitely make your event a success.

We had the most amazing wedding reception and it was entirely because of the Westin Richmond.

Our wedding we had planned was cancelled because of Hurricane Irene and we had a little over 24 hours to completely throw together a replacement event. We called the Westin Richmond looking for a reception venue; they had availability and offered us their brand new, gorgeous Chesapeake Ballroom. All of our money was tied up in the cancelled event as most vendors had already been paid in full, so we were unsure of what our reception would involve, but we were excited to have a venue. We told the Westin our situation and met with them later that day (the day before the event!) and were floored to find out that the Westin was able to make calls to some of the vendors that they regularly work with and found vendors willing to donate their time and services to give us a reception of our dreams. The chef at the Westin was able to assemble a buffet for nearly 100 guests with barely 24 hours notice and a hurricane bearing down on Richmond. And it was all delicious!

The team from the Westin Richmond was positively amazing. The generosity and kindness from every person we met and worked with was unlike anything we had found during the entire year we had spent planning the other wedding. General Manager Feliks Schwartz opened his hotel to us; his generosity was unparalleled and the team he has put together completely made our event. The team of Jodie Munn, Director of Sales; Christina Wells, Convention Services Manger; Arik Cullen, Director of Catering; and Stanford Page, Banquet Manager, put together the most gorgeous event, and they did it with 24 hours notice. The Westin Richmond has ours and our families' respect, love, and gratitude for the wonderful event they put together.

I cannot say enough good things about the Westin Richmond. The experience we had changed my opinions about the priorities for our wedding if we were given the chance to plan the whole thing again. First of all, its about the people you have to work with as the bride (or groom). There was so much going on in my life during the year we had been planning the other wedding, I could have REALLY used a team of people like we had at the Westin Richmond for that 24 hours. They were able to think about more details in 24 hours than I feel like I covered in 12 months of wedding planning.

Also, I LOVED having our reception in a hotel in retrospect, which wasn't what we had initially planned. The reception went late and the folks that wanted to retire earlier were able to easily go upstairs to the extremely nice rooms, but the party continued for everyone else. The Westin Richmond had a bar that was open late and our party continued at the hotel bar after the reception wound down.

And most importantly, everything seemed so seamless; the chef, kitchen, staff etc. was a part of the venue and the teamwork was so beautiful among the Westin Richmond team. The wedding we had planned was sort of a la carte, and I have tremendous admiration for how smoothly everything flowed at the Westin.

Afterwards, we rode out the hurricane at the Westin Richmond, and everyone we dealt with there was professional, courteous, and kind, even when they were booked to full capacity and the hotel was on generator power. While I won't be planning another wedding anytime soon, the Westin Richmond will be our go-to for every reason for very many years to come. Thank you Westin Richmond!
