    We had a cocktail party at the Westin the night before my daughter's wedding. I have never had such a good experience planning anything as i did here at the Westin. David was the planner and he is the best. He chose the Hopkins Room which is really three rooms that have beautiful natural lighting with wall to wall windows and a good view. He gave such great guidance choosing the appetizers, how they would be presented and every other aspect of the event. He is so knowledgeable and made himself available all the time. The party was absolutely lovely. The purpose was for all the wedding guests from all over the country to meet ahead of the wedding and get to know each other. The food was absolutely delicious and the bartender was friendly and fabulous. David is a real gem. He takes the worry right out of any event. I was able to completely enjoy the night along with my guests. He checked with me many times during the planning and also after the event and helped me out with anything I needed and was flexible about any changes as well. I highly recommend this venue for any event.

    I hired The Westin Alexandria within 6 weeks of my wedding date to plan the reception and dinner for my guests. My now husband and I worked directly with David Magsumbol at The Westin, and I can’t say enough good things about David. He was totally awesome to work with and he really knows his stuff, not to mention he had the best way of calming the bride down when she got flustered. ;) But seriously, I (the bride) planned my own wedding, but I couldn’t have done it without the help and dedication of David. He was instrumental in making my wedding reception a success. Not only is he very personable, but he is extremely professional as well. I can’t say enough good things about him. I will always be grateful for his help throughout the process; he was awesome to work with! And he made the reception area look beautiful. Everything was perfect! I would highly recommend The Westin Alexandria for any bride and groom’s wedding/reception venue.
