    Great hotel block option for MPLS wedding!

    We used the Courtyard Marriot as the hotel for our guests to stay at for our wedding that was close by. Dee was so great to work with throughout the entire process! Was always very quick to respond & sent updates regularly! Had multiple guests tell me how clean & safe they felt staying at the hotel during Covid!

    Amazing experience!!!

    Dee and Cathy were amazing to work with, even going through COVID they were able to make all our guests feel safe while still having a great time. They were super flexible and easy to work with. All for a GREAT price. We toured at least 10 other venues in our price range and NONE of them made us feel as special as Dee did. 10/10 would recommend over and over again
