Warwick Melrose Hotel, Dallas
I had the perfect wedding at The Warwick Melrose Hotel! Bethany Bustin was amazing! We planned the wedding from a distance (I live in CT and visit with Bethany just once in May) and everything worked out pretty well. The food was amazing, the service great. My guests were delighted!
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.
We experienced no surprises throughout the whole process of working with the Warwick Melrose except that they exceeded our expectations! The social catering manager, Bethany Bustin, went above and beyond her duties. We felt as though we received royal treatment and all our needs were met.
Bethany, the wedding coordinator, was such a pleasure to work with. She did an amazing job of making the wedding process easy. The reception was beautiful and the food was great. Our guests also enjoyed the hotel accommodations.
Bethany was a dream to work with. She was so friendly and helpful and never missed a beat in answering the millions of questions I had for her. She was the reason I booked the Warwick and my wedding night went perfectly! The ceremony and reception rooms were decorated to a T... Exactly how we discussed everything and the rooms were absolutely stunning. The Warwick Melrose Hotel was definitely my best choice of all of my vendors... and I will be recommending it to my friends and family in the future!
Bethany Bustin made my family and friend's experience with the Warwick memorable and very special! What a great asset she is to the hotel!
Bethany at the Warwick worked with us on my budget and made the day very special and seamless. I would highly recommend her and the Warwick hotel for your reception.
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!
We were recently married at the Warwick Melrose Hotel in Dallas. It was absolutely perfect! If you are looking to get married in a hotel that has charm, class, good food and a wonderful staff, this is the place!
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.
We used The Warwick for our rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. Right accross the street from the church.Everything was wonderful. Room had a historical/ intimate feel and fit our party size perfect(close to 40 people). I highly recommend. Thanks!
Beautiful hotel in a perfect location! My family enjoyed the guest rooms, especially the beds. And the Library bar was fun!!!
This beautiful, historic hotel in the Uptown Dallas area, has met all of our needs. This hotel is our ceremony site and our reception site. They are also providing our cake at a substantially lower price than many of the Dallas bakeries, and the pastry chef is just as good as any of the high-end bakers, if not better. It has a world class, diverse menu. They are providing beautiful linens and place settings. They provide a full bar (but we're only having the open wine and beer bar). They do set up and tear down of their stuff. They allow outside vendors for flowers, linens and what not.
Although the in-house wedding consultant is not from Texas, she has been here long enough and has done enough weddings that she knows and loves what she does. She was very helpful in reminding me of the things I needed to secure, and she gave me a list of vendors that she personally recommends. She also communicates openly and freely. She also has been working with my wedding planner and they have a great rapport.
The discount given for guests' rooms is much lower than what you can even book on priceline (or at least when I did it it was). As the married couple, we are getting a night free, plus any additional nights will be booked at the discounted guest rate.
The price may seem high, but that is the everything I listed above, applicable sales tax, labor and service charges.
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.
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.
These people will bend over backwards to make you happy and really don't need to considering they have one of the top restaurants nestled in their hotel. The hotel is breathtaking and historic in quality. It will make you feel like royalty!
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.
