Our wedding was simply amazing – and The Minnetonka Marriott played such a large part in it – as they say, location, location, location ….Sent on 04/06/2017
From our first meeting with Lindsay Robin, the Catering Sales Manager, to our very last (how sad) follow up call with Anna Duerksen, the Catering Sales Manager, this hotel was on the ball!
Our main contact there was Anna, and words cannot describe how fabulously amazing she and her team were. Anna held our hand through every step – she was there to answer questions before we even had them, and quick to reply when we came up with any other, she had great ideas, kept us on track, was knowledgeable, professional and such fun to work with!
The food was delicious – the chef wonderful, we even added our own ideas to the menu … he did an amazing job the day of our wedding – people were raving about how perfect the steaks were cooked, how delicious the mashed potatoes were and how great the serving staff was!
The setting for our wedding was wonderful – we were in the Lake of the Woods Ballroom for both the wedding and reception. The staff @ the hotel did an amazing job setting everything up and doing the flip for the reception (as both were in the same room). Everything was so seamless!
From start to finish the Minnetonka Marriott SW was amazing – to the staff, those that helped us directly and/or indirectly – thank you for making our day go off without a hitch!!

The staff at the Minneapolis Marriott Southwest (especially Anna) were so accommodating with everything we needed! We were very impressed with Anna’s attention to detail, timeliness with every questioner had and ensuring we had the perfect day that fit what we were looking for. If you’re looking for someone who you can count on to make your big day, everything you’ve imagined, you need Anna at the Marriott! We are very big on timely responses, and Anna was always in touch with us and answered questions so quick! We loved the “back up” option for indoors as we planned an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. The venue is able to fit up to 500 people with a couple different ballrooms as options. Absolutely perfect and recommended to all!Sent on 10/10/2018

We had the best experience at the Minneapolis Marriott Southwest for our wedding reception! Anna was amazing at coordinating all the details to ensure everything went smoothly. She answered our questions quickly, provided us alternative and better ideas, and was on-site the day of our wedding. The Marriott team was excellent and the food was outstanding. We couldn't have asked for a better reception venue and would highly recommend the Marriott Southwest for your wedding/reception!! Thank you again for making our day so memorable!Sent on 09/02/2018
