  • I would 100000 precent recommend having a wedding at the East Town Ballroom. I knew nothing about weddings before starting to plan for my big day. David and Cathy were great people to work with and would respond to any questions I had. They were also really responsive with all the covid guidelines. Plus, the venue looked like a fairytale and the food was very good!

    Thank you so much for choosing to celebrate your and David’s wedding with us here in the East Town Ballroom! It was a true pleasure working thru this process with you, even with the multiple curve balls we’ve experienced over the last year! We wish you and David a lifetime of happiness together and are so honored to have been a part of your special day! Congratulations & Best Wishes! David 'Dee' & Cathy

  • We used the Courtyard Marriot as the hotel for our guests to stay at for our wedding that was close by. Dee was so great to work with throughout the entire process! Was always very quick to respond & sent updates regularly! Had multiple guests tell me how clean & safe they felt staying at the hotel during Covid!

  • We absolutely LOVED having our wedding here at this venue! The hotel is modern, so clean and the location was perfect for us. We were looking for a place that had everything, which included the food (which was delicious), alcohol and bartenders, and a place to stay for our wedding night. We were thrilled that this location had everything we wanted. The courtyard area outside is what sold us the most and we ended up having our ceremony there which made for beautiful photos. They were AMAZING people to work with as well. April helped us in the beginning, and Dee took over most of our questions and planning help. He knew the answer to every single question and always helped put us at ease as we were planning a wedding during the COVID uncertainty. We worked with Cathy as well and she was so fun and easy to work with. Both Dee and Cathy helped us come up with ideas to make the wedding unique, and that really spoke to us because they really cared about making our day so perfect. Everyone (i... Read more

  • Dee and Cathy were amazing to work with, even going through COVID they were able to make all our guests feel safe while still having a great time. They were super flexible and easy to work with. All for a GREAT price. We toured at least 10 other venues in our price range and NONE of them made us feel as special as Dee did. 10/10 would recommend over and over again

  • Our entire experience with the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Minneapolis was exceptional. The amenities were far nicer, cleaner and accommodating than others in the area, and we were given a truly unbeatable wedding block price. By far what made the experience top notch was the staff, specifically Dee. He was one of the most enjoyable vendors we worked with throughout the process of planning our wedding and was incredibly patient with questions and special requests. We would recommend Courtyard by Marriott to anyone getting married in the Minneapolis area in the coming years.

  • We decided to have our wedding here, ceremony and reception, and I was beyond thrilled with this choice! Our day was absolutely incredible and we can really thank this awesome venue for that! JP, Dee, and Cathy really worked to make sure we were 100% happy through the entire process. Their wedding packages are AWESOME. We even got a two night stay in their suite at the hotel where I got to get ready with my bridesmaids because of how big and how many windows there were in the room! The staff on the day of the wedding were professional and EVERYONE in the hotel was aware there was a wedding going on to help direct quests and make sure everything went smoothly. The food was INSANELY delicious. I got so many compliments on the food, and when we were looking for vendors good food was at the top priority on my list- no one likes meh wedding food. The chef JP killed it in the kitchen. I honestly want to go back there just to get dinner sometime! The ballroom was split in half for our ceremon... Read more

  • We saved a block of rooms at Courtyard by Marriott - Downtown Minneapolis for our wedding guests for our wedding reception at Day Block Event Center. Courtyard by Marriott was very accomodating and made sure our stay was wonderful. We are so grateful. They have a shuttle that runs to and from Day Block to pick up guests and bring them back to the hotel. We will definitely be recommending Courtyard by Marriott to any friends that visit in the future. Thank you!

  • Our entire wedding block had a great time at this hotel. To start, the cost for the rooms was very reasonably priced, and the amenities within were great. All guests were treated very well during their stay, and Dee and his team went out of their way to make us as the wedding couple feel especially special. I would highly recommend this hotel to future weddings or events taking place in MN.

  • We used the Courtyard for our room block and everything went so smooth for us! David communicated with us every step of the way and made everything so clear and simple. They made it very easy having the option for my guests to make their reservations through a link and also being able to call. The rooms are great and we were able to be in a suite which made getting ready in the morning with my bridal party a breeze.

  • I had my wedding here recently and I have to say that the staff was great. I wasn't the biggest fan of parking but Kyle (the wedding coord.) really worked with us to make us happy every step of the way. I really felt cared for. Even though they had so many other weddings, I felt like they gave us all the attention we needed. He was also very responsive to my concerns and quick to reply all my emails and questions. Overall great experience.
