Wow! There is no other words that describe how phenomenal the service is at The Westin. I had my wedding there in May, and I couldn't have asked for a better place for my wedding. Katherine and her team were amazing- they responded back to all my inquires within 24 hours, and always kept my best interest in mind. I can't tell you how many times I woke up in the middle of the night to quickly type an email to Katherine asking a question about the wedding, and for her to respond back the next morning answering everything. We had our ceremony and reception at the Westin and my guest raved about how elegant and sophisticated everything looked. Don't even get me started about the food- it was devoured! The food and entertained was the highlight of the wedding with our own pasta bar and food stations. Everything was done without a hitch and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I highly recommend the Westin and their staff for all your special events; especially your wedding day! Thank you again to our Westin Family for giving us the wedding of our dreams!Sent on 06/05/2017

Top Notch Service and Value Added
We searched and looked at quite a few venues for our wedding outside and within Richmond. We both left The Westin Richmond with a strong feeling that we would end up returning, which we did. One of the best things about Westin Richmond is the staff - no matter who it is you are dealing with, the same standard of offering high customer service prevails. We contracted Westin for both our wedding ceremony and reception. We worked closely with Rachel for the majority of our wedding planning. She is superb! Five stars aren't enough for her. She is super responsive, go the extra mile and beyond to meet your needs and provide as much added value as possible. They made it easier for us not to have the need for a wedding planner, just a day of planner, and even then, they helped greatly in taking the load off us. Shout out to some of the other Westin Richmond staff - Chef John, Jazmine, Standford, Michael, and others who made the process and the day as stress free as possible. On the day of our wedding prior to the ceremony, We were told a few times of how calm we were. This is due to God's imparted peace and knowing that I'll be tying the knot with my soulmate as well as knowing that Westin Richmond's job is to take the stress as much as possible away from us regarding a number of the activities. They certainly did a great job of this and we are more than grateful.Sent on 08/05/2019
