  • We held our wedding reception there last September. The venue is great because it's modern, clean, has ample parking, is easily accessible from various locations in the area, and has friendly and competent staff. My wedding coordinator provided by the venue was very helpful and always stayed on top of all the details. The food and dessert selection's were delicious. I am so glad that I chose this venue for my reception.

  • Words cannot express how incredibly happy I am for selecting the best venue to hold a classy, elegant and breathtaking wedding in the DMV. Thankyou God for sending me to this venue and allowing them to accommodate in such a short notice. Every other venue I contacted disappointed me because it was Easter weekend and with less than two months to the event, they were either fully booked or could not accommodate all three of our events in one day. Yes, my ideal wedding was an all-day one stop shop location that will host three of our ceremonies: Traditional African ceremony, White wedding and Evening Dinner Reception. My first contact was Samitri who was ever so pleasant and ensured me that they can pull this event off for me and without hesitation I booked them upon seeing the actual venue. The venue itself was amazing. I knew this was the place for me because the beautiful decorative carpet had my wedding colors of lovely shades of yellow and black embedded in it with the chairs being b... Read more

  • The College Park Marriott Hotel was simply awesome from start to finish for our amazing wedding! Ask for Cheryl Wright if you want everything to be absolutely perfect! She was so friendly and professional! I felt like we were friends after speaking on the phone and over email for 7 months. She is caring and wants your vision to become reality. Since my fiance and I were coming from out of state, Cheryl would send pictures of what the room set up, chairs, gobo lighting, etc would look like. I sincerely appreciated that. Our food tasting was delicious and guests really enjoyed the food the day of the wedding! Although we were running behind, Cheryl took control and things went seamless. I cannot thank Marriott and Cheryl enough for making our day so memorable. If you are thinking about a beautiful place that is accommodating (nice rooms, free parking, great hotel bar!) then this is the place! Especially if you are a UMCP Alumni, you will not be sorry. Our college friends loved bei... Read more

  • The College Park Marriott was the perfect place to hold our wedding reception. From the moment of contact, the staff was friendly and helpful, particularly our event manager, Leyla. Leyla met with us a dozen times in the months leading up to the wedding, was responsive and attentive to all of our concerns and requests and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding. Her experience, knowledge and expertise in event planning allowed us, the bride and groom, to truly enjoy the wedding day. The food at the reception was delicious and we held our cocktail hour in the art gallery in the hotel, which our guests really enjoyed. We would highly recommend this venue and cannot speak highly enough of Leyla Lugjonic.

  • My wife and I had a very positive experience with Marriott, right from your sales contact (Kati Semelsberger) to your event manager (Leyla Lugonjic), to your banquet manager and to all the banquet/wait staff. The sales contract process was great with a lot of interaction from Kati who was very sensitive to all our needs. Leyla managed the reception event exceeding our expectations, solving any issues that came up immediately, responding to all our requests putting our mind at ease. Leyla's experience and confidence in handling the event went a long way in keeping our stress levels to the minimum.

  • My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Marriott UMUC Inn and Conference Center (Hyattsville, MD). A friend had recommended the venue which had been recently renovated and had the capacity to host larger events. We were really impressed by the size, decor and quality of the ballrooms. On our initial tours, Kati Semelsberger, the sales manager was very helpful and worked with us on the contract signing, which included hosting our reception as well as providing hotel accomodation to our guests at a discounted rate. We were then connected with our event manager, Leyla Lugonjic. Leyla was very responsive and met with us several times before our reception to help us plan everything. She worked with us on hotel room reservations by providing reservation cards to be inserted in our wedding invites for the convenience of our guests, preparing a welcome letter with additional details of the wedding festivities for our guests which was handed to them when they checked in, and making su...

  • Leyla was our event manager and was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond in every way to take care of us and make it an amazing day! She's become more than an event manager, but also a very special person to us.

  • My wedding was 11-23-2013 and I must say it was wonderful! Leyla was my Event Manager and she was great. We had some confusion with our entree, but only a few people were aware of that issue. I can't speak high enough of Leyla and Leeann. Every staff member I came in contact was more than accomodating. It was so smooth.....it was GREAT! My husband and I enjoyed the night!

  • My husband and I could not be happier to have our big fat Indian wedding at the UMUC Marriott! When we signed, the hotel had plans to renovate the ballrooms and building which we we were nervous about as the completion date was very close to our wedding date...but they pulled through and the results were beyond our expectations! All of the staff, particularly our Event Coordinator Mulu, was extremely friendly, cooperative, and got the job done exactly to our liking! My husband's entire guest list was from out of town and the hotel staff went out of their ways to make everyone's stay as comfortable as possible. The day when out so smoothly...it was magic! Thank you all!!!

  • UMUC Marriott Inn and Conference Center was affordable, flexible, and professional in planning our wedding reception. Leyla, our event coordinator, worked with us throughout the entire planning process to make our dreams become a reality. She did an amazing job and the wedding exceeded my expectations. The food was amazing and the staff was very polite and professional. I'd recommend this location to any couple looking to get married close to College Park, MD.

  • [G] = Groom [B] = Bride QOS Two marks deducted b/c dinner service took approx 15 mins longer than expected and the [B] wasn't served until the [G] asked someone, noticing multiple tables had been served. The [G]'s 1st course was hard to enjoy as the staff tried to clear too quickly. However, the host did a great job attending to the couple, and constantly asking the [G] if either of us needed anything. RSPV Marriott assigns a team to your event. The 1st call is to get your basic info, then they assign you to a salesperson. You receive a pricing packet, then get a coordinator. There's also a different dept. that procures the payments / contracting process. It took the [B] calling 3 times to get a response and they always promised a call back or an email. Our coordinator Leyla was the one who put a bow on it and made it a gift. For the team she was outstanding and overall everyone addressed all concerns. PRO We initially rated this perfect. A mark was given b/c it's one thing... Read more

  • So the food was great! All of our guests really enjoyed their meals. I felt like I could not maintain communication with our event planner as much as I would have liked to. She had a lot of other events and had a weird weekly schedule. Sometimes 2 or 3 days would pass before I got a response to an email. However, most of the requests we had were fulfilled. We had guests who forgot to book rooms and Leyla was VERY flexible with us and booked rooms for family members the week before the wedding at the discounted rate. Overall a good experience, but I'm impatient and move quickly. I would have liked quicker responses.

  • The Marriott Inn and Conference Center was a great option for us. They were extremely flexible with the menu options before we signed our contract. Everything went smoothly at our wedding at the reception site most likely due to our coordinator. Our main concern was the quality of the food. Unfortunately there were some changes in the way the food was prepared at our tasting vs what was served to our guests. While we didn't appreciate the changes...I don't think our guests knew the difference. However, many of our guests told us that their dinner was over cooked. While our experience was fairly positive I offer the following word of caution to all brides at all venues....get everything in writing in your contract. There were several unexpected charges on our bill which I had to work to remove two days before my wedding. These included guests being charged for parking, service charges for bartenders as well as an promised discount that wasn't included. Needless to say, arguin... Read more

  • I had a great experience holding our ceremony and reception at the UMUC Marriott. Our event planner Liz was fantastic and went BEYOND the call of duty the day of the event. She helped with the tiniest details at the reception and made it beautiful. I had some trouble at the beginning of the process - our original sales person wasn't very responsive. But we loved the space and once we started working with Liz my worries went away. We had a mix of Indian and American food, and Liz helped us find an outside Indian caterer and worked with them so I didn't have to. Overall, a great experience!
