We chose the Marriott West Des Moines and could not be more pleased with everything. We worked with Rebecca Hemsath and she was fabulous! She helped us every step of the way, answering questions and giving us pointers when needed. She was absolutely delightful to work with for the wedding reception planning. We could not have asked for anyone better! The ballroom was simply beautiful! The meal was delicious and everyone commented in how good it was - and plentiful. The entire staff did an outstanding job and were very attentive and accommodating. They did all the work setting up and cleaning up afterwards. It left us with little or nothing to worry about as they did whatever we requested of them. They helped to make it a day we will always remember with great pride. I would highly recommend the West Des Moines Marriott for anyone planning a wedding.Sent on 09/24/2018

Convenience and Flexibility are worth it
We decided the West Des Moines Marriott for our reception location mostly due to the fact that they'd set up all of our table decor as part of the included package. And as the wedding date got closer, that became more and more important and definitely worth it.Sent on 10/21/2018
But even more, Rebecca was so great to work with—she gave us recommendations based on how most people do things, but she was also open to any ideas we had.
The food was excellent, and we had lots of good reviews.
I can't overstate how great it was to have all our guests stay at that same location. And it was so nice for us to just go up after the wedding into a nice suite for some rest.
We could have used a room in the hotel for a breakfast the next morning, but we had brunch plans somewhere else. The hotel did lock up all our gifts in that room so we could just deal with them the next morning, which was really nice for us to not have to think about it that night.
Would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a convenient but elegant wedding.
