LOVED IT! Would definitely recommend.
We were extremely pleased with our experience with the Courtyard. Ann was very responsive and helpful throughout the planning process and the entire staff were completely committed to making our reception run perfectly. The environment looks very nice and has recently been remodeled. The food was high quality and our guests had nothing but great things to say about it. Having the set up and clean up taken care of was awesome, and made the wedding day much less stressful. The centerpieces they provided were perfect, and the servers were great. The Courtyard was also very flexible with working with what we wanted, allowing us to bring in our own wine, and snack mix to put on the tables. We also were able to plug in our laptop to the sound system to play music for dinner and the dance via Spotify which sounded great and saved us a lot of money on a professional DJ. They seem to have a lot of experience doing what they do, and we couldn't have had a better venue to celebrate our special day. Nothing bad to say about these guys!Sent on 06/27/2019

That was just one of the few reasons why we picked CY.
Ann was our catering manager was very accommodating to our needs. She helped us through the process from timeline to sending us updates on rooms.
The weekend of our wedding went smoothly because of the wonderful staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful whenever and wherever possible. I highly recommend having your wedding here!

As a DJ I feel that it is vitally important to be working with venues that know their stuff and are professional - all the time. Courtyard by Marriott in Ankeny does an exceptional job at this. The staff are very willing and helpful when anything needs to be taken care of. As a DJ/MC we at Black Tie Beats look forward to many more opportunities to work with Courtyard by Marriott in the very near future.
