    Great modern venue with helpful and responsive team!

    When we toured the hotel and venue we loved the modern and open design with the outdoor terrace area. We were able to see the rooms and suites which looked so comfortable, relaxing, and clean. It made us excited to have our guests stay here before and after our wedding.

    Kristina has been very helpful and knowledgable during the entire process of booking the venue. She is quick to respond to any questions we may have and the entire Westin team has been extremely pleasant to work with. We can't wait to have our wedding here!

    Can't wait for my wedding Feb 2021!

    Kristina and her team have been super helpful and responsive when I inquired about their venue for my wedding. We visited when it was still under construction so it was awesome to see the transformation once it was completed! I love the modern/contemporary look throughout the venue. They have this LED lighting in the ballroom that changes colors so you could save money by not getting uplighting. The location is very convenient for our out of town guests since the METRO rail is right outside for them to use for exploration. Best part is that the venue is new and right in the middle of the Medical Center. Who doesn't love the city views?! Perfect for a rooftop terrace ceremony during sunset. Looking forward to more wedding planning with this amazing venue and team. Thanks for taking care of us!
