Perfect Hotel for Wedding Block!
The Embassy Suites downtown was an amazing hotel to host our wedding guests for the weekend! Our ceremony and reception were in Oakland, and the hotel's downtown location was perfect. They have gorgeous meeting rooms on the second floor with tons of natural light for hair/makeup the morning of the wedding, and the bar on the 25th floor was perfect for our after party, featuring incredible views of downtown and the stadiums. The hotel chef even designed a taco and pierogi bar for our after party! Our guests also loved the hotel's free happy hour and free hot breakfast every day - it took so much pressure off of us because we knew our out of town guests were well taken care of. The hotel is new too, so all of the rooms are gorgeous and beautifully decorated. Kimmie in their events staff was absolutely wonderful to work with, and helps make everything so easy and customized.Sent on 02/28/2019

From start to finish, our wedding weekend events were perfect!
Even though we started planning with Shawniece over a year ago, she never tired of our constant requests, questions, and emails. Every time we met, she welcomed us with a smile and a willingness make sure our visions became reality. There was comfort in knowing we could also count on her for the details that were new or unknown to us.
When THE weekend finally came, valet service helped cart the many boxes we needed to decorate for the weekend events and were always there to clean up after us. If we needed anything, all we had to do was ask. The Welcome Reception and Wedding were truly amazing events! Shawniece (and all staff) went above and beyond serving us and our guests. She has that unique ability to connect with people while overseeing every little detail. We were free to enjoy the romantic upscale ambiance, delicious food, and impeccable service. This staff knows customer service!
Regarding cost: We paid $99.00 plus tax and service for the wedding. They customized their restaurant and catering menus for us. They also provided a sangria bar at a very reasonable cost per person.

Our experience with the Embassy Suites was fantastic! We booked the room for our wedding reception before it was even finished so we took a leap of faith and they really followed through. Shawniece was so helpful and was always there to answer my many questions. She never made me feel like I was bothering her or asking too many questions (which I'm sure I did:). Everyone I encountered at the Embassy was very kind and helpful! The venue itself is gorgeous. The Henry Oliver building has such a beautiful grand entrance with marble floors and rows of elevators. One thing I loved about the reception area was that the guests had their own space to mingle before they went into the dinner area, and they had a great view of the Mellon Square. The decor of the rooms are great, they are far above normal hotel decorations. Also, their food was exceptional! We choose salmon and steak and they were delicious. I was worried that the food would be less than great because they are making it for so many people, but they really did a great job. The only problems we encountered were the valet parking and coffee. The valet parking was really overloaded when we arrived and guests had to wait a really long time to get their cars back. Coffee was supposed to be served or set out at some point during the reception but it wasn't. By the time they actually had coffee people were leaving. Overall, I loved how everything turned out at the Embassy, they did a great job. We really enjoyed our reception.Sent on 02/14/2017
