Amazing Team and Beautiful Property
Kristina and team have been incredibly flexible, responsive, and accommodating. We were choosing between a few different venue options, but we chose Westin truly because of the incredible customer service we've received. I am very Type A. And my fiance and I have had a material number of requests. What made Kristina and Westin different is that not once has she made us feel bad or said no - Kristina is VERY resolution-oriented which I value and find rare with venue coordinators. The hotel is also brand new and beautiful - one of the few in the area with beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, a ballroom that can accommodate 500 guests, and two outdoor patios for ceremony/cocktail hour. All of these elements made it a no-brainer for us. We are having a two day South Asian wedding, and Westin has been able to work with us so we could have it all and stay in budget. Highly recommended!Sent on 02/18/2020
