Perfect for a room block & after party!
The Marriott in Cranberry is amazing. We used them for our wedding room block and after party. The rooms were recently redesign and are gorgeous! They prices were great for guests, and because of the amount of rooms booked, they gave us a suite (2 bathrooms, 1 living room, 1 bedroom) for a huge discount AND one night free – it was the PERFECT space for all the girls to get ready in and have hair and makeup done. Our original plan was to have our after party at the bar-restaurant in the lobby, but pandemic restrictions kept it from staying open and limited capacity. Things worked out better than expected because they held two private boardrooms with mini kitchens for free and for the entire weekend! We preordered food to be delivered Saturday night, and setup all the supplies we brought so they were ready when we got there after the wedding – we kept the party going until morning. The space and the hotel were absolutely perfect for everything we needed!Sent on 11/13/2020

We could not have asked for a better wedding! Gina and the entire staff bent over backwards to make our night perfect! I would highly recommend the Pittsburgh Marriott North! The price is actually very reasonable as well!Sent on 03/05/2020

Our Dream Reception with Pittsburgh Marriott North
We can't recommend Pittsburgh Marriott North enough. Gina and the Marriott staff were so great to work with and were very responsive to every little request we had. Setting up the tasting, holding meetings, and contacting Gina was convenient and stress-free. On the day of our wedding, everything went smoothly. The reception hall looked exactly like we dreamed it would. Also, the food was amazing - from the appetizers at cocktail hour to the reception entrees! We received countless compliments from our guests about the food and the overall reception. We are very grateful we chose Pittsburgh Marriott North for our special day.Sent on 12/30/2019

My husband and I had our reception at the Pittsburgh Marriott North in April and we cannot say enough wonderful things about Emily, Joe, and the entire staff. From the very beginning, Emily was kind, patient, and quick to answer any questions we had. I had MANY different ideas and she was always welcoming and offered her opinions and solutions on how to make them happen. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I felt like I was emailing her every day with different questions and even throughout the entire planning process she was always quick to respond and never made it seem like I was burdening her. Her responses were always detailed and she made sure to completely answer each one of my questions. My husband and I drew diagrams and made lists on how things should be setup that day, but with Joe as our day-of coordinator, we had NOTHING to worry about. He was extremely organized and detail-oriented and everything was setup just as we had envisioned. On top of all of that, we had many compliments from our guests on the food (it was delicious!), the service, and the entire evening. We had around 300 guests and needed the entire ballroom. There was plenty of space for people to move around and not feel cramped. We also held a brunch at the Marriott the next morning with around 80 guests. Emily had no problem reserving a smaller section of the ballroom which worked out perfectly. Our day could not have been more perfect and we cannot thank the Marriott staff enough. We HIGHLY recommend this venue to any couple looking for a location for their wedding.Sent on 05/15/2018

If I could relive my wedding day I would choose Pittsburgh Marriott North again and again. From our first meeting with Emily Stas to the next morning brunch everything was perfect.Sent on 10/09/2017
Quick response time, great food, great hotel rate for our guests, outstanding customer service. Everything was perfect. Even the brunch the next day exceeded my expectations with a beautiful fruit tray, fresh scrambled eggs, and our leftover cookies displayed into a "mini" cookie table.
Front desk staff was great, banquet managers were awesome, everything was perfect!

The venue was the first decision that my husband and I made as we started to plan our wedding. We decided to get married within the year and luck would have it, the Pittsburgh Marriott North had a Saturday in September available. From the very beginning, Emily Stas was excellent!! She was extremely responsive, provided guidance, and kept us on track through the whole planning process. As we neared the day of, Emily and the entire staff at the Marriott were amazing. Joe kept the whole night flowing perfectly, keeping us informed of the status of the ceremony and reception starting. Melissa was attentive and on her game! We had a number of people tell us afterwards how wonderful the staff was--noticing things that we, as the bride and groom, did not. The room was beautiful and having everything taken care for us so we could just enjoy the night was the best! On top of all of that, the food was delicious--tons of compliments on this as well! This was easily one of the best and easiest decisions we made after looking at a couple different locations within Pittsburgh. I can't speak highly enough for this venue and if you are looking for a location, check them out!!Sent on 10/16/2017

We had our wedding at the Pittsburgh Marriott North this past April 2017. I couldn't have picked a better venue!! Emily Stas Is who I worked with throughout the entire planning process and she is absolutely amazing, such a sweetheart, truly cares about what she's doing and she's very good at it. When you put all this time and money into your wedding you expect the best and they did not disappoint. I went into my day without any worries and everything went great. Not one issue. The Marriott staff that worked that day was amazing as well!!! They helped make it all come together, made sure it went smoothly, put up my decor and added a few little touches to make it even better!! The FOOD!!! I wish I personally got to eat more , if only we had more time :) ...but the guests raved about it !! Some even said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Everyone continued to tell me after how good it was and they were still full the next day from eating so much !! I truly can't say enough nice things about the Marriott. I am so happy we had or wedding there and would recommend everyone to go there!!Sent on 05/16/2017

Your hotel helped my wife realize her dream wedding in just a matter of a few days of planning. The total wedding was about 200 people, and your hotel was not booked until the final week!! The coordinator was very helpful and accommodating! Not only did she help pull together the details of the ceremony and the reception in RECORD TIME, but she was also willing to go the extra mile to ensure the additional details were in place. Our whole family was very blessed to have this experience at your hotel. ALL of your staff were friendly, helpful, and went the extra mile. From the Valet Parking guys, all the way to the servers taking care of the wedding. I've been to a lot of weddings in my lifetime, and never have I been so impressed with the level of professionalism and KINDNESS that I experienced at your hotel. I will recommend you to others, and if I am ever in need of a location to have an event, I will definitely keep your hotel in mind! Thank you from the Groom and My Bride!Sent on 04/24/2017

Emily Stas was amazing throughout the whole process - she always emailed back quickly and was eager to help us make our wedding day truly unique. Perfect venue for the ceremony with the uplighting provided, and we have heard that our wedding food was the best people ever had. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a hotel reception. Our guests loved that everything was at the same venue - especially in cold, snowy January!Sent on 02/14/2017

The event coordinator, Emily Stas, was one of the best people to work with. She is responsive, professional, and caring. We felt confident that if we wanted something or changed something, that it would get completed and we did not have to worry or fuss about it. The Marriot also coordinates flowers and cake, limiting our interaction with various vendors which is time consuming, expensive, and sometimes confusing. The Maitre d' coordinated the evening with our band and our DJ, and everything went smoothly. A delicious buffet dinner was served to nearly 370 guests in 23 minutes at 4 buffet tables, without any confusion. The cocktail hour was energetic, there were more than enough servers, the appetizers were delicious, and there was an abundant amount of food and alcohol. The alcohol was served from 3 bars the entire evening, with quick service.Sent on 07/09/2016

My husband and I used the Pittsburgh Marriott North for our ceremony and room block. The service we received from Kate and Emily throught planning process was amazing! They were patient with us, quick to respond to emails and phone calls and overall just made us feel completely comfortable with all of the decisions we made. We had a lot of questions throughout the process and they made themselves available for it all!Sent on 10/22/2015
The day of the rehearsal and ceremony we met with Brian, the banquet manager. He made sure everything was smooth and stress free for me. He handled everything professionally and promptly. I cannot say enough amazing things about him! We had a lot of out of town guests come in for the weekend and everyone commented on how well everything ran.
I would highly recommend the Pittsburgh Marriott North for your wedding ceremony! I'm sure the reception would be just as wonderful, unfortunately we already booked our reception venue before visiting the Pittsburgh Marriott North.
Christy · Married on 08/16/2014
Words can't even begin to describe what an amazing experience I had from the moment I began planning my reception. Kate and her team are absolutely incredible, knowledgeable, and passionate about their work. Never did I imagine my wedding reception would be absolutely PERFECT with not one thing going wrong the entire evening. Kate answered every question not only from myself, but my mother and even mother-in-law with pleasure. The amount of care they took with setting up the reception perfectly was noted not only with myself as the bride but the outpouring of compliments we received all night. I could go on for days about what a great experience this was, so go check out the Pittsburgh Marriott North for yourself. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 11/18/2014

My daughters wedding reception @ the Marriott North was everything and more. Kate was wonderful to work with. All our questions were answered in a timely manner, and the vendors they suggested were wonderful.Brian was great to work with during the reception. He and the staff were very professional, continually checking with us to make sure everything was going well. Our guests, following the wedding, told us how great the reception was, the food, and the brunch the following morning. I would recommend the Marriott North for any event, but if I had another daughter and she was getting married, this is were I would hold the reception.Sent on 12/05/2013

Our daughter Cindy described her wedding as " perfect" and " the best day of her life". To us ( her parents ), that was the ultimate report card on her wedding. Many vendors and people contributed to the success of the event and the Pittsburgh Marriott North would be at the top of the list of contributors. Kate Knecht coordinated the event and was an absolute delight with whom to work. From the very beginning, she made our family very comfortable with her positive attitude and responsiveness to our many questions. She has excellent knowledge of the vendors in the area and provided excellent recommendations to us. She is an active listener and she paid attention to all the details regardless of how small they may have been. In a word, she was "outstanding." We thoroughly enjoyed working with her throughout the several months of the planning process. Kate was supported by excellent banquet managers ( Brian and Samantha) who were at the wedding and handled all aspects of the ceremony and reception in an outstanding manner. Bartenders and staff were all positive contributors to the wedding. We had very high expectations of the Marriott and they were all exceeded!Sent on 12/02/2013
Pittsburgh Marriott North's reply:Thank you so much for that glowing review! It was a pleasure to work with your family to create Cindy's special day! We wish her and her husband a lifetime of happiness!

We had my daughter's wedding at the Marriott in May. Honestly, I cannot think of a negative things to say. They did not have ivory chair covers, so we rented our linens; but they reimbursed us $5/person.Sent on 12/10/2013
Kate was always responsive and supportive; and Brian was great the night of the event. Perhaps the two best things about the venue were the delicious food and the availability of rooms for guest who wanted to stay over.
Every detail was handled with expertise. I can't recommend this venue high enough! Believe me I am critical and honest when it comes to reviews. I would say this venue is mid-range pricing, but well worth it.
Thanks to the Marriott, Alice

I had a wonderful wedding at the Pittsburgh Marriott North! All employees were nice, professional, and courteous. The ballroom was beautiful and looked even better than I could have imagined. The food was absolutely exceptional. I didn't have anything to worry about as my wedding day approached because I knew they could handle it. To this day people are still telling me what a great wedding it was. Thank you Pittsburgh Marriott North!Sent on 12/29/2013

The Marriott North was the perfect place for my New Year's Eve wedding. The staff were all so accommodating throughout the entire process! I didn't have to worry about a single thing on the day of my wedding; they took care of every last detail. My husband and I did a "first look" of the ballroom before our guests were allowed in; it was more beautiful than I had imagined!Sent on 01/26/2013
We also added an extra mid-night buffet, and the food (from the cocktail hour until mid-night) was fantastic! My guests are still talking about what a great wedding it was! Thank you Jenn and the Pittsburgh Marriott North for making my wedding everything I hoped for!

Renee was great! She was very responsive to all of my requests. The service on the day of my wedding was excellent. They made my wedding day wonderful! Also, my cake was included in the reception package. It was awesome! They had many designs and flavors to choose from. We had a square, white cake with white buttercream icing and raspberry filling. Yummy!Sent on 11/04/2008

My wife and I had a great experience with this business. They were very flexible with our changing ideas and plans for our wedding, and always extremely responsive to our questions. I strongly recommend this venue to any of my immediate friends in the area looking for a reception location. The price was slightly higher than other similar options in the area, but I wouldn't hesitate to pay it again for the quality of service and professionalism that we received.Sent on 12/03/2013

Emily was amazing to work with--quick to respond and made great suggestions. We chose them because of their flexibility with the menu, which they did not deliver as we agreed upon. The head chef and general manager were not apologetic nor quick to rectify the problem. However, Emily was amazing and I would recommend them to other brides.Sent on 08/31/2015
