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

The WDM Marriott was great!
Having my reception at the Marriott WDM was the best decision I made for our wedding night. Rebecca is an amazing coordinator and the staff was very friendly. They take care of everything with/for you and make your experience seamless.Sent on 08/23/2019

Rebecca was so great to work with and made it obvious she was there to make our dreams a reality. It was great to be able to rely on the hotel for so many of the details but also be able to add our own touches. It was nice not to have to worry about setting up our decorations the day before/of the wedding since the hotel set them up for us. We would highly recommend the West Des Marriott for a wedding or any event.Sent on 09/12/2019
