The West Des Moines Marriott was not only the most reasonable priced venue we found in the area but also gave us the most bang for our buck! They did all of the set up and tear down and weren’t super restrictive of what you could bring in. Rebecca was so responsive and helpful in the whole wedding process. A ton of our guests had commented on the great food and great service!!! We were able to utilize their complimentary space for breakfast the morning after and it was perfect! We also got a free night in a honeymoon suite that I was able to book for the night before to get ready in the day of. Would 100% recommend this place to any bride or groom!Sent on 10/15/2019
