We loved having our reception at Embassy Suites. We really enjoyed working with Craig- he was very friendly, responsive, and helpful. So many of our guests were raving about the venue and the delicious food-- especially the lobster mac 'n cheese. Everything was ready on the wedding day so that we didn't need to stress because we knew Craig and the rest of the crew was making sure everything went smoothly. It was great having a wedding at a venue that had so much experience and so you could trust them to be on top of all the details. We had a ton of out-of-town guest so it was so nice having the venue where everyone could stay. There was a temporary issue with all of the rooms at the hotel booking up but Embassy Suites worked with us and we were able to find a room for all of our guests.Sent on 02/18/2015

The Catering Manager Craig and his team of sales managers and banquet staff really came together to pull off a great flawless event for me yesterday. They were flexible with minor room set up changes and made sure they was always food for my guests, which by the way was very delicious!Sent on 10/20/2014

I held my wedding ceremony and reception at the Embassy Suites in Old Town Alexandria. The first person I spoke to was Tiffany Hightower. We were treated like valued clients from the moment we walked through the door. She gave us a tour of the ceremony area, reception rooms and hotel rooms that would be open for our guests. Afterwards, they offered us dinner on the house to mull over our choices. We had been to many sites throughout Virginia, and especially in Alexandria, and this was by far the most customer service oriented. They really were the best. The contract was pulled together quickly, easy to understand, and generous.Sent on 03/14/2013
As planning for the wedding progressed, we were dismayed to learn that Tiffany had taken a position at another company. We wished her the best, and wondered how that would affect our wedding planning. In what can only be a complement to the staffing and professionalism of the Embassy Suites, I can say that our planning continued without a hitch. We worked with a new person, of course, Deborah Bell, but she was also accommodating, and patient, and offered her insight and experience to help us plan a wonderful day.
My husband to be and I were even allowed into the sight occasionally by the staff to help sort out details of planning for decorations (escorted by the staff, of course). I just can't emphasize enough how accommodating they were.
On the day of the wedding, there was a bride getting married in the afternoon before me. I had been told about this the moment she signed a contract. We always knew this would be a possibility, but many venues do this, and we trusted the Embassy Suites and didn't have a problem with it. Unfortunately, she was apparently 2 hours late to her own wedding (!!!) and so her reception started 2 hours late, etc. The Staff at the Embassy Suites was Incredible! They got the room turned around in under an hour with escort cards and table cards set out and in good order. I never knew about the iss
