Betsy, Seth, and Essaid at the Sheraton made us feel like welcomed family and guests for our big wedding weekend. From being flexible with our room block needs to executing a rain day plan for our cocktail reception, the day went off without any major hitches. They were also particularly fun and sweet when handling our crowd of merry wedding guests (with a big appetite for the open bar)! Our guests loved the location, everyone was able to explore our beloved Old Town throughout the weekend, and we were able to relax (a little) knowing they didn't need our full attention all the time. We thought we could not afford the wedding of our dreams, in a place we love, until we found the Sheraton Suites in Old Town.
Oh! And we are STILL getting compliments on our delicious reception dinner-- the food and drink was exceptional!Sent on 10/14/2018

My husband and I planned and hosted our son's Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding Reception at your beautiful hotel this past weekend.I started searching for a venue for the Wedding back in April and, I have to admit, I searched venues all over Alexandria and Fredericksburg Virginia. I had whittled my choices between your fine establishment and another venue in Olde Town Alexandria. The deciding factor on choosing your hotel was the assurance and confidence I felt in your Catering Sales Manager- Mallory Aaronson. After this weekend- I was not disappointed. My daughter-in-law was deployed to Afghanistan so Mallory understood that all decisions being made were tentative until the Bride was back from her deployment and could make the final decisions about what she and my son truly wanted in their wedding.The Rehearsal Dinner was set up just as I asked, the food was delicious, hot and plentiful, the beer and wine requested was in abundance and all the guests raved about the whole affair. I was so incredibly pleased. The rooms were clean, available and very comfortable. When guests checked in they were to receive a "Wedding Welcome Bag" which most did receive. Saturday Morning and Sunday Morning breakfasts at the Finn & Hoof were wonderful. Everyone that I talked to was so pleased with the breakfast, coffee and the service. The Cocktail Hour and then the Reception was beautiful. The staff did an excellent job of keeping the food hot and getting it to all the guests in a timely manner. The staff did a great job setting up, serving the food, tending bar, keeping the bar open for an additional hour, and then cleaning up and getting me all the wedding stuff neatly and timely the day after the wedding. The Sheraton Suites Olde Towne has the best Catering Sales Manager that I have had the pleasure to work with.Sent on 11/26/2013

We were thrilled with how our wedding reception turned out at the Sheraton Suites. One of the main reasons we chose that venue was the good vibe we got from the Catering and Sales Manager, Jenni. She was so responsive, friendly, and easy to work with, from our initial consultation all the way through our wedding day. She graciously responded to numerous questions from a detail-oriented bride; she went above and beyond to accommodate several special requests; and we really appreciated that she was there to oversee everything on the big day. We were also very impressed with the food, and it was evident that the chef took pride in his work. He personally presented everything to us during our tasting, and even came out during the reception to check if everything was OK. The cake promotion with Alexandria Pasty was also a nice bonus. We thought the room block rate was very reasonable and the accommodations were very nice. Overall, the Sheraton Suites was the perfect choice for our wedding, and we highly recommend it.

Hi - I would love to talk with you about your upcoming wedding plans. With so many spaces to offer and tons of great ideas, the Sheraton is a perfect place in historic Old Town.
I have had over 20 years experience as a wedding planner, catering manager and on site chef.
Each wedding should be unique - not cookie cutter and I truly enjoy thinking outside the box!
What a great venue where the staff always makes the bride, groom, and guests happy with their service. Easy to work with and very accommodating!
The Sheraton is located in Old Town Alexandria which is so picturesque and lovely. A great venue to have your wedding and wonderful, accommodating staff to work with! Highly recommend!
I have shot at the Sheraton Suites in Old Town on several occasions, and they are always fantastic to work with. I especially like the brick courtyard and the proximity to so many beautiful portrait opportunities in Old Town Alexandria. Their staff is friendly and professional. I am looking forward to shooting there again soon.
