    Dream Wedding at Le Méridien Houston Downtown

    My fiance (now husband!) and I had a very specific vision in mind when we started planning our wedding two years ago - we wanted a modern, stylish venue with a breathtaking view. While there are several lovely venues in Houston, nothing compared to Le Méridien Houston Downtown. From the second we stepped foot in the ballroom during the tour, we fell in love. An added bonus was that we got to work on all of the details with the most incredible Director of Catering and Events, Lily Davis. She was with us every step of the way, answering every single question, introducing us to vendors, and even presenting us with options we hadn't even thought of. The space itself is gorgeous; you have plenty of room to plan whatever you want. The hotel itself is sleek and modern right in the heart of the city. The food was exquisite - they have an incredible menu with the most delectable dishes (my dad is a chef, so food was integral to the wedding). Lily was so kind and even worked with us to customize our food and drink menu. They even have a bridal suite with vanity mirrors for you and your wedding party to get ready in. We truly could not have found a more perfect location for our dream wedding. All of our guests are still reaching out to us months later to tell us it was the most gorgeous wedding they have ever been to. It's also pretty convenient that it's one of the best hotels in Downtown Houston, so you can reserve a block of rooms for your guests (our guests definitely loved this because several of them partied all night with us!). If you're looking for a beautiful venue to have an unforgettable wedding in, this is the place!

    Everyone said it was the best wedding ever. Literally everyone!

    When my fiancée and I were looking for wedding venues, we were pretty picky. We looked for months and visited over a dozen locations all over Harris and Montgomery Country. But when it came down to a decision, we went with the Le Meridien Hotel in Downtown Houston. The hotel is new, well kept, and has sleek, modern finishes. While the ballroom has a nice city view and is a beautiful space for a wedding, what made our decision easy was the people. When we went to visit the hotel the 1st time, it was not even open yet. However, Special Events Manager, Lily Davis, made sure we were well taken care of. She arranged for a valet just for us, and introduced us to both the GM and the Head Chef. Everyone was so kind and we really felt like they rolled out the red carpet for us. There were several places we visited where the events coordinator left us with the impression that we would be so lucky to have our wedding there. But Lily really made us feel like they would be lucky if we were to be married there.

    For any request we had, she always started from the mindset of how to make it happen. I am someone who asks a million questions, and she answered them all, right from the 1st phone call until the champagne was poured at our wedding. She really went the extra mile for us, and we were really pleased with the whole staff. Her colleague Daniel would run room reports for me whenever I asked (which was every week), the Chef made heart shaped pimento grilled cheese sandwiches for our event at our request, and everyone from the valets to the bartenders could not have been nicer or more accommodating.

    There are a few really big purchases you make in your life, and it’s always good when you feel you made a good decision on those. Both my wife and I feel great about our decision to have our wedding at Le Meridien. I will be sure to call Lily and the folks at Le Meridien again for future events.
