My husband and I got married at the Marriott at City Center on May 6th and it was absolutely amazing. We had a late change of venue and was on pens and needles looking for a new location that could accommodate 200+ guest and possibly provide lodging. From our initial contact with Brianna, we knew and felt that we were in good hands. She was very responsive and detailed oriented. Words truly cannot describe the service Brianna provided.Sent on 05/22/2017
Our ceremony was held in the Rotunda which provided an intimate setting. I really loved the double staircase. We also held our reception the Pearl Ballroom. Our guest loved the buffet and spoke highly of the staff and hotel. The room was nice and spacious for 200 guest. Everyone was extremely nice and attentive to not only our needs but also our guest.
The location is ideal with shops, restaurants, and a movie theater within walking distance. I would definitely recommend hosting a wedding or any other type of event here.

I love Brianna and her work as the wedding coordinator. I also love the rotunda to officiate weddings. It's beautiful. They have a great package here, with a great coordinator with Brianna. The food is delicious. Over all, this is a great place to have a wedding, small or large. Happy to endorse Brianna's services and the beautiful space at the Marriott at City Center.
