    I recently had my wedding at the WAC and everything turned out beautifully. Renee took over the catering manager role while I was working with WAC, and I am thankful she did as not only did she smoothly pick up where the former catering manager left off, but she was so responsive and great to work with. She was very accommodating and professional-- I wish all of the vendors were as easy to work with as she was. The venue itself is very beautiful and classy, unlike many of the hotels in Seattle which have a PNW look to them. The guests also loved the venue and the food as well. I would recommend this venue to any bride looking for an elegant venue in downtown Seattle.

    I am really happy with the results of my wedding. The first event coordinator was somewhat responsive and had errors consistently in her estimate. After she left I worked with Renee and Katie. They were great. I likely was on them a little more then I needed to because of the service I received originally with the first coordinator. I was also worried that the food would not be good because the tasting was pretty bad but the day of the food was great! For the price, what the WAC provides, 2 nights in the suite, etc etc it is a great price. Everyone from the Bellman, to the waiter to kept my glass full during the reception and made sure I had food was great. Another thing that put me at ease was the ability to drop off décor, and other items the night before. I couldn't be more pleased with the decision to have my wedding at the WAC
