About Courtyard by Marriott Minneapolis Downtown

The Courtyard by Marriott Minneapolis Downtown is a hotel for a couple’s wedding in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area. This venue is classic yet modern, with an elegant ballroom in which couples can celebrate their wedding day. The hotel is located in downtown Minneapolis, just a four-minute drive across the Mississippi River from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can welcome up to 400 guests to their wedding celebration at the Courtyard by Marriott Minneapolis Downtown. The East Town Ballroom in this hotel offers 5,200 square feet of space for couples and their events. There is a pre-function space wrapping around the outside of this ballroom where guests can enjoy a charming cocktail reception. With a neutral brown color palette, the light coming in from the windows set high along the ceiling is just the right amount, adding to the luminescence created by large domed and recessed lighting elements. Prior to their cocktail reception, couples can celebrate a ceremony outside on a paved patio space, with a wall of living greenery as their backdrop. This canvas of ivy adds a touch of nature to the otherwise very urban wedding setting. Inside the East Town Ballroom itself, couples will find a carpet with a brown and tan pattern, wallpaper with a subtle pattern for texture, and nearly an entire wall of shaded windows. The dance floor sits right in the middle of the floor so that everyone has the opportunity to see special moments such as the first dance.

Services Offered
This venue invites couples to use the space in the ballroom not only for ceremonies and receptions, but also for bridal showers or engagement parties. Couples will find accommodations and a bridal suite to be just two of the comfortable spaces they will experience on their wedding day. There is also liability insurance at this venue. Event planning services before the wedding ensures that everything will fall into place and run smoothly, thanks to the experience and professionalism of the hotel’s staff. Couples can relax in their bridal suite and enjoy the company of their wedding party while the Courtyard by Marriott’s staff takes care of setup and cleanup, lighting and sound, and even event rentals. Event items available for a couple’s wedding include:

  • Altar/arches
  • Audio equipment
  • Centerpieces
  • Chairs
  • Dance floor
  • Decor
  • Drapery
  • Furniture
  • Lighting

    Unbeatable Wedding Block

    Our entire experience with the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Minneapolis was exceptional. The amenities were far nicer, cleaner and accommodating than others in the area, and we were given a truly unbeatable wedding block price. By far what made the experience top notch was the staff, specifically Dee. He was one of the most enjoyable vendors we worked with throughout the process of planning our wedding and was incredibly patient with questions and special requests. We would recommend Courtyard by Marriott to anyone getting married in the Minneapolis area in the coming years.

    Great time at the Marriott

    I didn't actually stay at the hotel, but my guests for the wedding shared that they had an awesome experience.
