We LOVED working with the Melrose! We worked with Kelley Grosskopf, who was incredibly helpful, responsive, organized, and professional. She made it a stress-free event, and it was everything we wanted it to be. She helped us meet our price points too and made recommendations based on what she had seen work well for other weddings (while ultimately still enthusiastically supporting what we decided!). We would host any event here and feel confident they would do well without much guidance/supervision. And having the Library Bar there and open late is an excellent bonus for guests following the reception!

My husband and I got married on Sept 21, 2013, at the Warwick Melrose Hotel and we LOVED it. We could not have had a better experience. Kelley Grosskopf was so wonderful to work with, and I cannot imagine planning my wedding without her. She was always so helpful, responsive, and sweet! I did not have a wedding planner, and honestly, I didn't need one since I had Kelley. She helped us plan our 115 person wedding in 6 months, and it was perfect. The hotel is beautiful and charming, the food was great, and the Library makes the perfect place for an after-party. Our guests loved staying at the hotel, and we loved being able to have everything—ceremony, reception, after party, and guests rooms--all in one location. Our friends even worked with Kelley to have Aubree Anna, an AMAZING singer at the Library, surprise us during our first dance. We could not believe it when she walked through the door and sang At Last to us! It truly was a perfect day, and I am so glad we decided to have our wedding at the Warwick Melrose Hotel.

I absolutely LOVED working with Bethany Bustin for our wedding reception at the Warwick Melrose Hotel! Bethany was extremely professional, responsive, very helpful and accommodating. It was the perfect venue for our small wedding, we had about 93 guests attend our reception. The tasting that Bethany hosted for us was so much fun and the food we selected was delectable, our guests raved about how wonderful our food selections were. The service we received was exactly what I hoped it would be. The team at the Warwick really took good care of us and our guests, if we had to do it all over again I would still choose the Warwick Melrose Hotel. This is a great venue for a small, intimate wedding! - Stephanie Marino Corbett

We just had our daughter's wedding at the Warkwick Melrose Hotel in Dallas. It was beautiful and beyond our expectations. The entire hotel staff went above any service expectations we ever had no matter what hotel we've ever stayed at. Bethany Bustin, our wedding coordinator was a dream come true. No detail was left out, we were treated with such care and love that it just could not have been a better experience. There was not one single thing I would change. It was just perfect, perfect, perfect.Thank you Bethany and thank you to the entire staff who made the day/night/weekend so special.

All involving the rehearsal dinner for 80 guests from excellent food and food choice recommendations, full bar, table wine service, table and room decor, AV services, special rentals, music, etc. were handled professionally and promptly. Calls and emails were ansered very promptly.
No question I asked was too small. Requests, even last minute day or or night of dinner, were taken care of immediately! All guests were complimentary and no negative comments on ANY aspect.
Bethany was a joy to work with on our families rehearsal dinner. I have worked on planning many dinner events/parties for many organizations and Bethany is the best!

The Warwick Melrose Hotel and Kelley provided my husband and me with our dream wedding. Our hotel/wedding coordinator, Kelley, bent over backwards to help us in our planning and was so quick in providing answers to our questions throughout the process. The facility is beautiful on its own, and we were able to make it even more beautiful with the flexibility that was allowed in decorating (the updates/renovations that took place before our wedding made the ball room even MORE beautiful, by the way!). Since the wedding, we have had multiple friends rave about the event and how good the food was. We look forward to making the Warwick our hotel of choice for all future special events...we just loved it, and while we went over our planned budget, it was worth every penny to know that we were in great hands!

The hotel was acquired by another, larger hotel chain after we had booked the location. The hotel stayed true to our plans and contracted prices. They also promised that they would not do any renovations until after our wedding. This potentially stressful situation ended up being seemless. We loved the food (we did a Mexican buffet) and had really good luck with the catering manager/wedding coordinator. The hotel ordered table coverings and bows for us. They were set up on the wedding day and we didn't have to do a thing. The hotel also allowed my florist to use an empty room to "build" centerpieces. It was very helpful for me. The hotel was a great value and was just beautiful the day of the wedding. The hotel provides little votives in the windows (we loved having a ballroom that actually had windows). Our wedding was for about 120 people and we fit perfectly. I highly recommend this venue.

We had our wedding at the Warwick. We live in Dallas but are not from here so a hotel was the ideal choice since we would have a lot of out of town guests. We wanted a venue that was beautiful on it's own and allow some of our guests to see some Dallas history and be close to uptown and shopping. It was the perfect location and we loved it. Kelley is so professional, sweet and a pleasure to work with. She was so attentive and helpful throughout our engagement. My mom and I always felt so special after meeting with her after any appointment. She is wonderful. I highly recommend the Warwick Melrose.

I got married on Christmas eve. The main reason I booked at this venue was because of the venues I was looking at, they were the only ones available for Christmas eve. I love this hotel and love their food.
I booked my small wedding (24 guests) in the Bridewell Room and Sunset Terrace in February. All throughout the planning process the event planner was excellent. She assured me the small details that I would think of at 3am would be taken care of, personally, by her. She also said she would be with me every step of the way on my big day. Needless to say, this did not happen.
When we entered the room the night before the wedding, the tree she promised that would be decorated by her and only in red and silver, had over half of the lights out, huge gaping holes with no decorations, and decorations that were a variety of colors and mismatched. Also she told me that the terrace would be available for my smoking guests and there would be cocktail tables set up - this was not done (and I later found out they weren't supposed to smoke under the tent). The table was also not set, so it was difficult laying in centerpieces that were fragile and all the table setting details. There were also chair covers that had stains in very inappropriate places. I sent a frantic email late in the evening (around 10pm) and never received a response.
The next morning, having not received a response by 9:30 am we went down to the front desk and found the flower people. Obviously, they were looking for the event planner because she told me she would be their point person. And since she wasn't there, the front desk people told them to just take it upstairs. Thankfully, the flower guy has had some experience and set it up well. In my distress, my husband took over and told me to get ready and enjoy myself and try to relax. He directed traffic with the tree mishap, chair cover mishap and the arranging of the place settings around what we had laid out the night before. I never heard from her. My husband called when she showed up around 11:30am. Supposedly she called my room, but with makeup and photography people I guess we never heard it. When we got down to room it was beautiful, the tree had been fixed, the centerpieces were not damaged and everything went smoothly. I realized sometime around 3:30pm (my wedding started at 2pm and the reception at 2:30pm) that the planner was no where to be found. According to the waitstaff she had left. I was beyond disappointed.
Beyond the day-of communication errors and tiny snafus (like the napkins not being folded in a pocket fold like we had discussed in email 2 days prior) it was wonderful. The hotel is beautiful. The scenery out the window is beautiful. The food is beautiful (to all the senses). The cake was wonderful. The service staff went way beyond what was expected and couldn't have been more professional. Especially this older Hispanic lady who kind of took over when I realized the event planner wasn't there. I would recommend this as a venue to anyone, so long as they have an independent planner.
As an addendum: In an email I sent after the wedding (that evening), the event planner didn't think it was necessary to come find me before the wedding because my husband had told me she was there. She also never gave me a reason as to why she left without even saying good-bye. Like I said, have your own planner.

I got married on Christmas eve. The main reason I booked at this venue was because of the venues I was looking at, they were the only ones available for Christmas eve. I love this hotel and love their food.
I booked my small wedding (24 guests) in the Bridewell Room and Sunset Terrace in February. All throughout the planning process the event planner was excellent. She assured me the small details that I would think of at 3am would be taken care of, personally, by her. She also said she would be with me every step of the way on my big day. Needless to say, this did not happen.
When we entered the room the night before the wedding, the tree she promised that would be decorated by her and only in red and silver, had over half of the lights out, huge gaping holes with no decorations, and decorations that were a variety of colors and mismatched. Also she told me that the terrace would be available for my smoking guests and there would be cocktail tables set up - this was not done (and I later found out they weren't supposed to smoke under the tent). The table was also not set, so it was difficult laying in centerpieces that were fragile and all the table setting details. There were also chair covers that had stains in very inappropriate places.

Wedding:

We had our ceremony, reception and morning after brunch at the Warwick Hotel, one of mine and my husband's favorite hotels. Although the wedding was beautiful, the decor fabulous, the rooms lovely, and the food very good, we did have problems with the venue event planner and management. Communication during planning was less than smooth to say the least with contract details wrong, etc. Two months before my wedding, they abruptly told me that my ceremony space (the second story terrace) would be covered instead of the open air terrace I had been planning on for months. In the end, it was probably better that the terrace was covered for my November wedding, but the issue was handled very badly by the event planner and management.

On the day of my wedding, the event planner--who had assured me the night before she would be with me every step of the wedding day--was impossible to find and nervous and frantic at every turn. She made small mistakes in the decor--things that were of no consequence but were still irritating at the time. She was not present at our reveal, although she said she would be, so our officiant suddenly shows up in the middle of the reveal on the terrace smiling and waving. There was not enough ceremony seating even though both my husband and I asked her about this repeatedly--such a basic detail should not even need to be addressed. She made no attempt to make sure we were on time, people were where they needed to be and ready, etc. And to top it all off, she left early before our exit with the excuse of returning early for the brunch the next day, but never showed up.

Because of her, I had to rely heavily on my other wonderful vendors and had I not chosen them carefully, I am afraid my wedding day would have ended up to be a very stressful and disappointing day instead of the wonderful event that it was.

We have since learned that the event planner had at least 3 appointments to show the Melrose the day of my wedding which I find inexcusable and I put the blame not only the planner but management as well.

Customer service elsewhere was wonderful. The two main women who helped during the reception and brunch were wonderful. The decor was fabulous. The food was good although we heard some complaints about the buffet stations. We loved all the rooms, the bar, the ceremony space, and the beautiful ballroom. From a decor and service standpoint, the Melrose is an excellent choice, however, I have no faith in the event planner or management and would recommend hiring your own DOC, which is a shame since one is supposedly provided for you as a strong selling point.

Additionally, I would not recommend this venue for a wedding over 120 people, although the Melrose represents the space as accommodating far more than that.

Make sure they don't give you false information. The previous wedding planner made promises that she wouldn't keep. However, Bethany was honest from the beginning of what could be done and can't be done.
