    Want a gorgeous and stress-free reception? Look no further!!

    From a responsive and adaptive planning process, fair and accessibly priced fees (we're talking only $5 corkage fees!) and delicious food, a GORGEOUS and updated event space with décor included, and sweet touches like a complimentary room on Friday and Saturday night--the staff make the reception effortless and a party that you can actually participate in.
    We looked everywhere and compared every price. Nothing had the convenience, style, and price point that Courtyard offers. I don't know how they do it, but you they do it so incredibly well. I cannot recommend them enough!

    Perfect vendor and location!

    I grew up in Ankeny so I was looking for a venue in town. The Marriott was great to work with and very open to our wedding desires! Pricing was very reasonable too to rent out the Grand Ballroom. Definitely recommend!

    Courtyard Des Moines Ankeny's reply:

    Hi Hannah,
    That's so good to hear! I'm glad it turned out well and you were pleased with the end result. Wow, we were blown away by your positive words, we really appreciate the time you took to write such a detailed review!

    Our wedding at the Courtyard by Marriott was a dream. Ann and Kelly and their staff were incredible to work with. The food was amazing, staff was excellent, and everyone was so accommodating. I would highly recommend this hotel for a venue!

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.
