    Words cannot express how incredibly happy I am for selecting the best venue to hold a classy, elegant and breathtaking wedding in the DMV. Thankyou God for sending me to this venue and allowing them to accommodate in such a short notice. Every other venue I contacted disappointed me because it was Easter weekend and with less than two months to the event, they were either fully booked or could not accommodate all three of our events in one day. Yes, my ideal wedding was an all-day one stop shop location that will host three of our ceremonies: Traditional African ceremony, White wedding and Evening Dinner Reception. My first contact was Samitri who was ever so pleasant and ensured me that they can pull this event off for me and without hesitation I booked them upon seeing the actual venue. The venue itself was amazing. I knew this was the place for me because the beautiful decorative carpet had my wedding colors of lovely shades of yellow and black embedded in it with the chairs being black, it just worked our perfectly. And let's not forget the hidden treasures in this hotel, the art museums and the Red room. Lovely areas to take beautiful pictures. We selected the package with alcohol and it was such a great deal compared to other establishments which didn't even look as nice in the area.
    Our actual hotel event coordinator Leyla was God sent. I have never met anyone so courteous, humble and reliable. She took good care of all the details of our event and it was always clear in her tone and demeanor that she really wanted to make us happy on our day. She went above and beyond for us. Our wedding ultimately turned out to look like a platinum wedding. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. What more can I say about this venue than THANKYOU. You made our Dream wedding come true! One of our guest came to me and said "This is Maryland's best kept secret for a wedding" And I concur with that statement.

    The College Park Marriott Hotel was simply awesome from start to finish for our amazing wedding! Ask for Cheryl Wright if you want everything to be absolutely perfect! She was so friendly and professional! I felt like we were friends after speaking on the phone and over email for 7 months. She is caring and wants your vision to become reality. Since my fiance and I were coming from out of state, Cheryl would send pictures of what the room set up, chairs, gobo lighting, etc would look like. I sincerely appreciated that. Our food tasting was delicious and guests really enjoyed the food the day of the wedding! Although we were running behind, Cheryl took control and things went seamless. I cannot thank Marriott and Cheryl enough for making our day so memorable. If you are thinking about a beautiful place that is accommodating (nice rooms, free parking, great hotel bar!) then this is the place! Especially if you are a UMCP Alumni, you will not be sorry. Our college friends loved being close to campus again and remembering those days. Cheryl, you are awesome! Thank you for everything!
