We recently got married at the Delamar in December and there's not one thing we would change. We live right in West Hartford but knew we would have a lot of out of town guests, so it was really important to us to make sure that we picked a venue that our guests would like since they would be spending a weekend there.
From the moment we first contacted the Delamar about our wedding date until the day of, everything went extremely smooth. At our first meeting with Erin to look at the venue, I had about 50 questions, which she answered right away and we gave a deposit at the end of that initial meeting - that's how much we loved it!
Not only is the Delamar right in the center of Hartford, which is ideal for many reasons (rehearsal dinner, having out of town guests stay that can make use of the downtown, etc), but it's absolutely beautiful inside and out. We considered going to Elizabeth Park for pictures but ended up staying at the Delamar and doing all of our pictures outside the ceremony room and in the garden and they came out stunning. It is also extremely convenient that they have a retail shop for a Florist right in the lobby because we ended up going with that florist (Lane and Lenge) so all wedding planning ended up being very easy and convenient as everything was in one spot.
Throughout the process, the entire team was beyond friendly and helpful - we had a ton of questions between wedding day decor, extending the room block, etc, and all of our interactions were very pleasant. We never had a meeting or email that left us frustrated or like we weren't getting exactly what we wanted.
The tasting was a pleasant surprise - I was fully expecting it to be something with another group of couples, but our tasting was just us two with our wedding coordinator. We asked to make some small changes to a couple of the items we chose and it was no issue. And my husband asked for his meal to be different from the meals we chose to be on the menu that night and they had no problem accomodating that! He also asked for specific beers to be brought in and they were also able to accomodate that request - our guests even commented on the great drink selections after the wedding!
I am sure that I am missing many other examples of how the entire staff at the Delamar went above and beyond from the first time we went to see the venue to the day of our actual wedding - but we really cannot say enough good things. I HIGHLY recommend this wedding venue - from management & the staff, to the location, to how picturesque it is - it is a perfect place for your wedding day!Sent on 01/16/2020

Beyond our expectations!
My daughter & son in law were married at The Delamar West Hartford last Saturday. It was absolutely everything we had hoped for and more! You will NOT be disappointed if you have your wedding here.Sent on 09/13/2019
We researched a few other shoreline locations but nothing compared to The Delamar - both in appearance and value.
We worked with Cieara primarily throughout 13 months of planning and she is FANTASTIC. She responded to our many emails promptly and always was helpful and cheerful. Anything we needed the Delamar was able to provide. The service is amazing.
The room block went smoothly and all our guests were in awe of the beautiful hotel and amenities. Everyone commented on how nice and accommodating the staff was. Amanda, Gabby & Arzeena were all helpful iin keeping us abreast of our room block count and guest lists.
The day of we were lucky to have Angie as our point person. She is very professional and everything worked like clockwork. We never once had to worry about anything. She handled all the coordination of vendors, food, decor, etc. It was so nice to be able to sit back and just enjoy the day!! Angie and the staff were so attentive to the bride/groom making their day extra special.
The service was top notch. The food was excellent. The bartenders and wait staff were so professional. There were never lines (we did add an extra bar) and the food service was on schedule all night.
Every single person who worked at the Delamar was so nice. They all seemed genuinely happy for the bride/groom and families.
We had a suite for my daughter to get ready the morning of the wedding. Alberto was so helpful the night before and the day of, helping unload the cars and bring the many things we brought up to the rooms. Anything we needed he made sure we had.
Having the reception at the Delamar where guests could stay over was the best decision- it was a weekend long event. We had an after party at World of Beer and everyone was able to easily walk to and from. The morning after the groom's parents graciously hosted a brunch at the Delamar that was equally as delicious and professionally staffed.
The Delamar may be new to the Hartford area but it will quickly become a favorite spot for weddings. Book it while you still can - you will have nothing but positive memories!!
Delamar West Hartford's reply:Thank you Ann so much, we are so happy that Olivia and Thomas' day was all they dreamed it could be! It was truly such a pleasure to work with you and your family to plan this special day. We wish Olivia and Thomas a beautiful future together and a lifetime of love and happiness!

Best Day Ever
We recently had our wedding at The Delamar in June, and we had an amazing experience. From the beginning, the planning process was seamless, so we knew we were in good hands. On the day of, the food, service, etc. were above and beyond our expectations. Our guests came up to us afterwards saying it was the best beef they've ever had at a wedding. We could not be more pleased with our venue choice. A special shoutout to Cieara, Angie, Gabrielle, and the entire staff at Artisan for being so fantastic throughout the entire planning process and on the day of. We are still dreaming of our magical day!Sent on 08/01/2019
