    We went through quite the transition from the time we booked the Westport Inn to the time our wedding happened...two wedding coordinators later, our day went off without a hitch!

    Antonella and the staff at the Westport Inn was super accommodating and more than willing to answer my millions of questions and numerous emails that I had over the months leading up to the big day. Garelick and Herbs caters for the venue and their food was AMAZING- we even got to do a tasting beforehand and had nothing negative to say! We got a good value for what we wanted, though being charged the 22% service fee plus tax on everything (per plate, the ceremony space and reception space, the two bartenders, plus the alcohol) was a little excessive.

    The planning process went smoothly and the day before we were able to drop everything off to be set up. I was a little nervous not being able to oversee everything, but I was in good hands and Antonella made sure everything was perfect! We had both the ceremony and reception there and the transition from one to the other was smooth. Even throughout the reception we were being checked in with to make sure everything was okay.

    Thanks again for making our wedding so memorable!

    Poor Service, Lots of Mix Ups, Very Inflexible

    Sadly we did not have a great experience working with the Westport Inn. First, we were supposed to receive a complementary suite for the bride and groom, and about a month before the wedding were told that all suites were full and that we did not have one. There were two other events with room blocks that weekend, which caused massive confusion for the under trained and uncaring staff. My grandmother was turned away because her room wasn't ready TWO HOURS after the check in time, which is just ridiculous. Guests did not receive their welcome bags at check in, and we also heard stories of non-guests receiving bags when they asked for them even though they were not within the block. If you want good quality service you are better off booking a hotel block elsewhere.
