The WAC was perfect. EVERYTHING. I would throw another party there in a heartbeat. Amanda Schwanitz was our go-to and she took care of it all...even whipped up a bouquet for me to do the toss because mine wouldn't work for it! All the guests thought the WAC was top-notch, and raved and raved about it. I would throw another party there in a a heartbeat.

This is absolutely the most perfect venue for a wedding in the state. It is right in the heart of downtown Seattle, so a bit daunting for my South Sound guests, but well worth it. We planned our wedding in 11 months, and it went off without a hitch. It was amazing.
The best part about having our wedding and reception here was the convenience. Not only are beautiful ceremony and reception rooms here, but restaurants to hold the rehearsal dinner, hotel rooms for overnight guests, fitness rooms (even yoga!) for working out pre-wedding jitters, and a full service spa, gentleman's barbershop and salon for Hollywood style pampering.
Our awesome venue coordinator worked out all the details to make sure every guest was taken care of so we could enjoy the day. After the ceremony we enjoyed a celebratory champagne cocktails in the beautiful lobby lounge and guests needed only to go to the third floor for the reception dinner. Their wedding packages take care of the beverages, the dinner and the cake, which were all outstanding. Every guest we spoke to loved the food and the beautiful surroundings. Even parking charges for our guests were covered!
Their service staff was amazing, both catering and hotel and bell staff. Our coordinator was totally on it - he ensured our wedding cards and gifts to a secure location so we didn't have to worry about them, and arranged for our overnight items moved to our suite for us! He employed his staff to assist our vendors with setup- he helped our DJ connect to their audio system; provided a refrigeration room for our florist; opened up the ceremony room early on Friday for ceremony awning setup; gave a full tour to our photographer; and provided a room for our vendors to have dinner and take a quiet break. After the wedding was over, they even left a small but beautiful personalized wedding gift in our suite. Trust me, this location will help you throw the wedding of your dreams.

Renee Brussard was exceptional in managing our daughter's wedding. She picked up where the previous Catering manager left off and exceeded our expectations. She was professional, efficient and helped us pull off a flawless evening. She was there managing details during the evening. From the minute I met her, I felt confident that everything would go off without a hitch.
She managed every detail and made suggestions that were in our budget. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest this venue for a wedding on Renee alone.
The guests all commented on the rooms and service. In fact one of the guests arrived one day early and was going to be charged full price for a room if it weren't for Renee jumping in and getting him "the room block rate". Down to the last detail, this venue provided the ultimate experience for a wedding where more than 50 per cent of the guests were from out of town.

The venue is absolutely beautiful! We had both our ceremony and reception there. The Crystal Ballroom is just amazing with the three huge crystal chandeliers. The catering and banquet departments are on their game and provided help on the little details and gave great ideas. The dinner and cake were very, very good and all of our guests really enjoyed it. The hotel staff also upgraded our room to a suite (due to availability) for no charge, and the room was impressive~! The only downside to having your wedding there is booking a room to get ready in on the day of the wedding because they don't provide you a room. However, their prices are comparable to other hotels in the area.

Washington Athletic Club responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your kind words about our venue and service staff. It is your happiness on this special day that is important to us. In response to your comment about a guest room to get ready in.
We do offer a complimentary guest room to every wedding party here at the Washington Athletic Club. The bride and groom are welcome to offer room to the wedding party during the day of the wedding. Most of our couples prefer to use the room for themselves for the wedding night. If we have a suite available we do always offer a suite to the wedding couple.

The Washington Athletic Club in downtown Seattle is Beautiful!!! They also have great pakages for weddings, that you really can't beat.

Our wedding at the WAC was perfect! They worked with us in planning for a year and a half. Everyone we worked with would answer questions and help us find a solution that would work for us and the WAC. These employees are there for you and they really will do anything to help you vision come true! They are so accomodating in every single way. We even dropped off all of our supplies for the wedding 3 days before the event because we didn't have time the day before the wedding. The catering and special event staff are spectacular.

When my husband and I were looking for a venue we walked into the WAC and knew right away this was the place! They allowed us to use several rooms throughout the build for the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, vendors room and even a room for the wedding party! They took care of all of our needs, even hanging a curtain up in a room as a backdrop to our ceremony to give it a nice touch. I can't even tell you how much they did for us or our guests. I (the bride) have several food allergies that are a bit difficult to work around (gluten and shellfish) but they accomodated everything to fit my needs. Even made a special cake for my husband and I to cut into for the cake cutting portion of the ceremony. I am not the only one of our guests that had allergies, we had so many guests with all sorts of food allergies and needs. The cooks were able to accomodate every single one of our guests needs. The wait staff was amazing and didn't make any of the guests feel akward about allergies or anything. They were warm, welcoming and helpful and really helped our guests enjoy our wedding. Our family and friends still rave about our wedding and their experience at the WAC.

If you decide to go to the WAC, you are in the best hands ever and so is your wedding!
