Flawless wedding venue!
The Westin was our venue for our wedding. Not only are the surrounding Mountain views breathtaking, but the service and hospitality were world-class. All our guests were impressed with the venue and we were impressed with Lauren’s (event planner at the Westin) efforts and commitment to making our day perfect!Sent on 11/01/2019

Lauren McIntosh (wedding coordinator) was personable, easy to reach, professional, and dedicated. I had to plan the entire wedding from the east coast by phone and emails, and she made it manageable and the wedding event turned out exactly how I envisioned it. One downside is the ballroom itself. The ceiling is low, and the room is very basic (no art work, no chandelier, and just basic dim lights). You will have to hire an outside vendor and decorate the room quite a bit (which I didn't to minimize the cost).Sent on 10/19/2017

We had an INCREDIBLE experience working with The Westin for our wedding. Lauren was extremely attentive to our questions/needs and such a pleasure to work with leading up to our wedding. During our wedding weekend, I couldn't have been happier with the service we received. The valet team, the front desk (especially Mike and Tabby), the housekeeping staff, were all amazing. Our wedding food was great! We received so many compliments about the food and service. We were blown away with how the weekend went and we can't thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so memorable. We truly can't recommend The Westin enough. If you are planning to have a wedding in Beaver Creek, please take some time to speak with Lauren and Beth. You will not be disappointed! We can't wait to come back for other events/vacations! THANK YOU!Sent on 10/02/2017

We absolutely loved working with Lauren! She was wonderful in responding to our thousands of questions and for helping us make our dream wedding a night we will never forget. We got so many compliments that our wedding was the best wedding a lot of our guests had attended. Thank you Lauren and Westin Riverfront!!Sent on 01/11/2018

As a local of Avon, Colorado, I knew I had great choices in reception venues. However, because my husband and I met at the Westin years ago, we thought it would be special to have our reception here. Boy, were we right! Beth Olson and her staff made sure no stone went unturned. We had many questions and requests, and Beth saw to it that everything was clearly addressed and carried out perfectly. We had more people comment that our reception was one of the best and most fun receptions they had ever attended...this includes hotel guests who commented on the "fun party" they heard going on downstairs. They said they were extremely tempted to crash, ha! The venue is so beautiful and diverse, with an expansive lobby area outside the ballroom, a large ballroom with floor to ceiling windows, an enchanting (and spacious) patio with bistro lights and a wedding lawn...all overlooking the Eagle River and Beaver Creek. What more could you want?! We had passed and stationed appetizers and everyone was raving about the food. They made sure to accommodate our bar requests, specifically, locating and offering a specific bourbon, that my Kentucky-raised father was adamant about. Beth Olson was patient, fun and offered great insight and advice. We were thrilled to come to our complimentary wedding night suite to see a chilled bottle of champagne from her. That was the icing on the cake to an incredible wedding, we and our families/guests will NEVER forget! Thank you, team Westin!Sent on 08/02/2017

We knew we were in good hands, but what the Westin staff delivered was beyond every expectation. My husband and I held our wedding at the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa at the Beaver Creek Mountain in June and it was absolutely amazing! We could have not wished for a better venue. We had our ceremony on the wedding lawn with a gorgeous backdrop of the Beaver Creek Mountain. Our reception was in the Riverside ballroom with floor to ceiling windows that open up to a terrace with romantic bistro lights and with even more gorgeous views of the mountains. Absolutely dreamy!Sent on 08/09/2017
Beth Olson was the best! From the beginning she was professional, attentive, organized, and patient and went above and beyond to accommodate all of our special requests. Her experience in coordinating major events was evident and she helped us greatly to make our big day PERFECT and worry free. On the day of the wedding Beth Olson and Lauren Mackintosh (the day-of coordinator) worked quietly behind the scenes to take care of our every wish. We forgot to bring props for a special wedding custom. Before we had a chance to panic, Beth and Lauren had already found a replacement and had it ready for us to use. The entire event staff was SO accommodating with us, helping us with every detail.
Food was outstanding. A true star of the night. Our guests are still raving how great the dinner was. They were also very flexible and came up with delicious options for guests with dietary restrictions.
My sister did my makeup, but I was able to get pre-wedding pampering and hair done in the Spa Anjali. Gabrielle worked fast and did magic to my hair. I felt like a princess.
Many of our guests stayed at the Westin for 3 nights and we heard nothing but great things about the rooms, food, staff and amenities. Everyone felt welcomed and had a great time. It was so convenient to return to our rooms after a long night of dancing. Thank you Westin Riverfront for making our wedding a dream come true.

The Westin is such a beautiful place for a wedding. The staff is exceptional and everything runs so smoothly. I would recommend the Westin to anyone getting married. The views are incredible as wellSent on 12/05/2016

The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa is one of my very favorite wedding venues! I am the owner of Gemini Event Planning and have personally coordinated over a dozen weddings at this fabulous resort. The ambience is all Westin - clean, fresh, and new with incredible views of Beaver Creek from the ballroom, restaurant, guest rooms and lobby. My brides (and their guests) enjoy the world class spa, restaurants and location in the heart of Avon and Beaver Creek. The staff is incredible. I can count on Jessica to take care of my brides throughout the planning, and Victor to execute the perfect riverfront ceremony and wedding reception. This venue has it all in one great package. Wish I could give the staff, food and venue 6 stars!Sent on 12/11/2014

The location at The Westin is beautiful! The wedding lawn over looks the Eagle River, and the setting is just stunning. The Westin made planning a wedding a breeze. Jessica went above and beyond to help us, she helped us set up all our other vendors and was helpful is getting all those vendors going the day of the wedding. She also made plenty of suggestions on food and was very patient with us as we really took our time making decision. Also, The Westin's food was amazing! Our plated dinner was beyond delicious and so perfect for the evening. The staff there treated me like a queen and always kept our drink full. Overall the entire event from start to finish was amazing and I would definitely recommend The WestinSent on 12/16/2015

24 hours plus, after the wedding, we realized my something old had been thrown out with the trash amidst all the fun. Jessica was quick to hunt it down, in a dumpster, and saved a priceless gold pin from my late grandmother from being lost forever. She and the Westin crew exceeded our expectations, and created stress-free wedding planning experience. We were also their very first request for s’mores instead of cake, and they were perfect. It was too fun watching our guests socialized while they roasted marshmallows outside with a stunning view. Our guests continue to comment on how beautiful the venue is, and are still RAVING about the food! We could not have asked for a better day!Sent on 12/15/2015

Fabulous venue!! After considering several venues for my daughter's May 30th wedding, we chose the Riverfront Westin and could not have been happier! This is a first class resort with lots of on-site amenities (heated salt-water pool, infinity hot tubs, restaurants, spa, salon and workout room) for your guests to enjoy! The convenience of having the wedding at the venue where everyone was staying was also a big plus. No one had to drive anywhere and at the end of the night, they just had to take the elevators up to their rooms. We worked with Beth Olson, the event manager. who helped us work out all of the details and is your day-off coordinator. She was such a pleasure to work with and it was so reassuring knowing she was handling all of the details, especially on the day of the wedding! The ceremony was outdoors on their wedding lawn with the river and mountains as a backdrop. It was absolutely gorgeous! Cocktail hour was on their private patio just above the wedding lawn and directly outside of the ballroom. The ballroom has floor to ceiling windows that look at the mountains and doors that open up onto the patio. With the help of our florist, Rose Braden, the ballroom space was absolutely beautiful! The size of the dance floor was perfect and allowed plenty of room for dancing. The food was superb and the pastry chef did a fantastic job with the wedding cake. I had several guests confess to having more than one piece of cake! I also have to mention that the entire staff at the Westin could not have been more welcoming and accommodating to us and our guests. Everyone had a fabulous time and I can not thank them enough for making our daughter's wedding perfect in every way!!Sent on 07/06/2015

My husband and I got married at The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in August 2014. It was everything we could have ever hoped for! My mom and I checked out several other potential mountain venues, but it was pretty much love at first sight with The Westin. The resort is spacious and elegant but not pretentious. We also fell in love with Jessica the wedding coordinator. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and just pleasant to be around. This is key when you will be working so closely with someone for nearly a year! Although wedding planning is inherently stressful, I truly believe things went as smooth as possible due to the professionalism of everyone at The Westin. Even when rain threatened to push our ceremony indoors, The Westin team remained positive and was able to react at the last minute when the sun came out to ensure our ceremony and cocktail hour would be outside on the gorgeous lawn overlooking the river. The food was excellent and we had a great setup for a live band. Lastly, one of the best things about having our wedding at The Westin was the stellar deal they gave us for the room block. It made a big deal to our guests and we were very grateful!Sent on 01/14/2015

We were honored to photograph a wedding on the 1st of August at the Westin Riverfront. It was amazingly easy to work with the staff at the Westin, they dealt with weather delays with ease, made us feel comfortable, kept the wedding party happy, and orchestrated a beautiful ceremony and reception. Their professsionalism and flexiblity made our day.Sent on 12/18/2014

My husband and I got married at the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa on July 19, 2014. I would highly recommend this venue for both the ceremony and reception space. I've highlighted a few reasons we loved this venue that I think will be helpful for couples beginning their venue search:Sent on 12/19/2014
1. Location - The Westin is at the base of Beaver Creek. This not only makes for beautiful views and photos, but our guests were able to make the trip into a weekend vacation. There are endless things to do in the area including Vail Village, Beaver Creek Village, fly fishing, hiking, horseback riding, etc. S
2. Uncomplicated - I don't remember being involved in anything the day of the wedding. Much of the wedding was provided by the Westin, but they also provide a day-of coordinator who works with you throughout the planning stages and handles coordination with outside vendors. Beth was wonderful to us. She held ~15 boxes and my dress in her office as we had to ship a lot of items. She and her team also worked with the florist to resolve an issue stabilizing the arbor without my knowledge allowing us a stress-free morning to enjoy getting ready with family and friends.
3. Great Photography Opportunities - The Westin has so many great places for the day-of pictures. Not only was the ceremony space (the Wedding Lawn) beautiful, but there were so many other outdoor areas (river, field, running path lined with trees) that we were able to capture beautiful photos to remember the day.
4. Food - The quality and presentation of cocktail hour and dinner was wonderful, the cakes were both gorgeous and delicious, and they were flexible with us when deciding the menus to accommodate guests with dietary restrictions.
We are so happy we chose to have our wedding at the Westin. It was truly an unforgettable experience for us and for our guests. If you're looking for a beautiful venue that will provide an easy wedding planning experience and a stress-free day, I recommend the Westin.

We had the best experience with all the people at the Westin, especially our wedding coordinator Beth Olson. We could not have asked for a more professional and kind person to help plan our wedding. We loved every aspect of our wedding and would not have changed a thing. Great place, amazing food, amazing views, and amazing people to help with every step.Sent on 10/18/2013

My husband and I got married at the Westin Riverfront Resort during Memorial Day weekend 2011 and it was such a wonderful experience! My parents had stayed here during a visit to Colorado a couple years ago and raved about how nice it was, so when we started planning our wedding I sent the hotel an email asking for more information. Meredith Brewer, the AMAZING event coordinator at the Westin, wrote back to me right away and by the end of the week I had the details on pricing, food and drinks, hotel amenities, the spa, etc. (She continued to be just as responsive and organized throughout the whole process, which any bride-to-be will appreciate!) We visited a few weeks later and fell in love with the hotel and the view. While we had a few concerns about our budget, Meredith helped us find affordable options and referred us to great vendors for music, flowers and party rentals. Speaking of affordable, they give you and your guests a very generous break on rooms - all our guests stayed at the hotel for the weekend and are still raving about how awesome it is! The wedding day itself came together perfectly: the view from the lawn included river rapids, trees with new green leaves and snow lingering on the Beaver Creek ski runs. The ballroom was set up beautifully, the food and cake were delicious, the bartenders were fun and friendly...and best of all, we didn't have to worry about a thing as Meredith coordinated everything for that day. We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding experience at the Westin Riverfront Resort and it will always be a special place for us – I can’t wait to go back!Sent on 07/11/2011

We had our reception at the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa. It could not have been handled more perfectly. Kelly Hansen was a joy to work with along the way. The food and service were amazing at the reception. They planned a separate kids' event for us to allow the parents to enjoy the reception while their chilren were engaged with games, etc. through the Westin Kids' Club. It was a huge success. Most of our guests stayed at the Westin too and raved about how beautiful the facility was. I also think the overall event, including the rates we negotiated for the guestrooms, were an excellent value for the money. We could not have been happier with the overall experience.Sent on 04/05/2010

The wedding planner, staff, food and venue at the Westin Riverfront were all great! The location is beautiful and people raved about the food - several said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. Everything is made to order - not made ahead of time and put under a heat lamp. I am kind of a nutrition nut and have several friends and family with gluten allergies - the Westin had many, many options that fit those criteria, including even gluten free bread. In addition, the pastry chef worked with me in developing a "healthier" version of our pumpkin spice and ginger wedding cakes. In addition, she even went out of her way to make us an additional cake that was gluten-free and vegan.Sent on 05/08/2010
They also were great about setting everything up - including chair covers and bows, tablecloths, and even a stage that we rented from elsewhere. They also took all of those down at the end of the night and prepared them for pickup from the rental place - services that a wedding planner wanted to charge us $2,000 for.
The ballroom is gorgeous and is almost all glass on the side facing the mountains. We looked at another ritzy hotel in the area and the ballroom did not have one window - it felt very closed in and boxy. Why have your wedding in the mountains if you can't even see them? We looked at several other venues in the area and really think the Westin can't be beat in the Vail Valley.
