Wow - everything about The Edgewater was perfect for our wedding. The ballroom was beautiful and an amazing setting for both the ceremony and reception. Catrina, the sales manager, was so helpful throughout the planning process and always available to answer questions. Dinner and drinks were incredible, and the staff was so attentive the entire night. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the hotel and loved staying there. I highly recommend them as our wedding was perfect.Sent on 03/23/2019

Amazing and elegant waterfront venue in the heart of Seattle
We got married at The Edgewater Hotel last Fall, and it absolutely made our wedding! In the early stages of planning our wedding, we decided we wanted a water-front venue to showcase the beautiful water that makes Seattle so special, as almost all of our guests were coming from out of state. After narrowing it down and visiting 4 venues, we chose The Edgewater due to its prime location in downtown Seattle and absolutely stunning Olympic Ballroom. The Ballroom is the perfect wedding venue because it's elegant, large enough for our wedding size (90 guests), and is laid out very conveniently with the Terrace Room for cocktail hour, centrally located restrooms, and inexpensive parking at the garage across the street. Importantly, you also get the water view without any worry of rain. Our rain plan was simply, "Don't go outside"! (This was a major downfall of other waterfront venues we looked at, and this is Seattle, after all..) The one tricky thing with the Ballroom is the backlighting from the window in the Ballroom. We had an early evening ceremony (5:30 PM) in late summer, so the sun wasn't too low yet, but just make sure you choose a photographer who has worked at the venue and can still get good photos in the lighting. The bridal ready room was also fantastic, and right on the water. Gorgeous view while getting our hair and makeup done! Also, the food was delightful. Overall, we got many many compliments about the food as well as the venue overall in terms of elegance and practicality. Some venues are so spread out that guests can have a hard time figuring out where to go, but there isn't any problem with that here.Sent on 05/16/2019
Our initial contact person was Cassie, whom we really liked, but we were suddenly changed over to another consultant, Amanda, only 2 months before our wedding. It was quite stressful initially, but once we met Amanda (shortly after the transition was announced, with Cassie also present), all our worries were assuaged, and Amanda did an excellent job with our wedding. We were 100% pleased with the way things turned out, and she was very kind and easy to work with. Fantastic service!
Overall, I wouldn't say The Edgewater is an inexpensive wedding venue, but it also isn't as pricey as some of the other nice waterfront venues in the Seattle area. What you get for the money is absolutely top-notch, and if it fits your wedding budget, you will love what you get. When we look at our wedding photos, we see amazing views of the water, the city skyline, and the gorgeous architecture of this one-of-a-kind Seattle hotel. So happy we chose the Edgewater!

The staff at the Edgewater are true professionals. We worked with Catrina for most of the wedding logistics. She is communicative, responsive, detailed, and very experienced in the wedding industry. We consulted with Catrina and relied on her for insights when making our decisions. We were very pleased with her and her staff leading up to the wedding and on the day of our wedding. For room block coordination, we worked with Colette. She is a rock-star. Colette helped us with the changing demands of our guests and coordinated distribution of our welcome bags perfectly. She is also very detailed in tracking and communicating last minute changes to the front desk so our guests' check-in experience was smooth. We could not be happier with the Edgewater Hotel, and we appreciate its staff’s dedication to make our wedding day special. For any couple who wants a quintessential Seattle wedding, we recommend this venue as you will be in great hands.Sent on 07/31/2018
