    Wedding Room Block 9/12/19

    My Husband and I booked our room block with the Westin. The staff that we dealt with over there were all so helpful, professional, and kind. Kelly helped us out throughout our entire process, she was so helpful and replied quickly with any questions I had. Kelly helped us by recommending places for our rehearsal dinner, she helped book our farewell breakfast the morning after the wedding, and keeping our room block organized. I can't say enough good things about The Westin and their staff, 5 stars from us!

    Accomdating, clean, professional

    We used the Westin Governor Morris for our room block on labor day weekend. We worked with Kelly and she was wonderful from the first day when we took a tour of the hotel. She answered every email I had with reassurance. We worked with Emily for reservations and she made everything stress free. The hotel was not only aesthetically beautiful but clean and accommodating.
