  • Michelle Kerkeslager and her team were easy to work with, responsive to my requests and provided helpful suggestions to make my daughter's post wedding brunch an elegant, well-organized event. Michelle provided professional service in an empathetic manner.

  • We had a beautiful wedding at the Westin in June. Our guests were most complimentary of the food and the drinks. Finally, wedding food that doesn't taste mass produced! Michelle was there the night of, and did a wonderful job. Ron was the organizer of the event, and he was responsive to my emails. I would make sure to double check your information though, as he was forgetful for things he told us in person. Very reasonably priced and a great room block rate!

  • We recently worked with this hotel for a rooming block for our wedding, and we (the bride and groom) stayed in two of the suites here during our wedding weekend and utilized them for getting ready with our wedding party. I cannot say enough good things about our experience! From start to finish the Westin was fair, accommodating, responsive, helpful and super competitive on price! They went above and beyond to make our wedding block affordable and as easy as possible for our guests to book and for us to manage. During the wedding weekend, they took care of us every step of the way. From comping our parking to sending up champagne and treats for us to come back to on our wedding night, they truly made us feel so special and made our wedding weekend that more enjoyable. In addition to the great customer service, it is a beautiful property. The rooms and suites are updated, spacious and clean and the public areas are great as well. We also utilized Pinzimini, the on site restaurant ... Read more

  • The Westin at Arlington Gateway (WAG) was the ideal venue for our wedding! The staff at the WAG was spectacular and took great care in every detail of the wedding. Mitchell Bierbaum was extremely responsive, flexible and understanding as we were planning this wedding from California. Mitchell and his staff went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was an experience that we would never forget. The location of the WAG provides ideal choices for entertainment, food, etc. We are extremely glad that we chose to have our wedding at the WAG! We highly recommend the Westin Arlington Gateway to other people!

  • We came to the Westin after our previously chosen wedding venue was unable to provide the necessary staffing for our event - so after a year of planning, we had to choose this new location with less than a month to our wedding. From the moment we dropped in to see the event, without even having an appt, til the very end of the event, Mitchell & the rest of the staff ensured that our event went as smooth as possible. The transition was SO easy, and in fact, given our awful experience with the other place, made things almost stress-free during a time that a transition should have been very stressful. They suggested modifications to our menu based on things I casually mentioned during our tasting (which was phenomenal!!!) - I hadn't even realized it could be done! On the day of, things were perfect. Everything went exactly as planned, and the space looked beautiful. Even though I had not wanted my wedding in a hotel meeting room, their space is really special in the way it is set ... Read more

  • I had a wonderful experience at The Westin Arlington Gateway. I wanted my wedding venue to be an upscale hotel with a modern feel, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, a convenient location, and a cocktail space with big windows wrapped around a neutral ballroom that I could transform however I wanted. I definitely made the right decision! My wedding was a black tie affair for about 300 guests, so working with the hotel to plan the cocktail hour and the reception was no small undertaking. Danielle Merriman and Alicia Bell made it seem easy, though, because they were fabulous to work with! I greatly appreciated their thoroughness and attention to detail. My parents and I were very hands-on in the planning process, and they were so patient and helpful as we discussed options and decided on what would be served at the cocktail hour, what would be served for the plated dinner (which included a perfectly cooked filet that many guests told us was the best they'd had at a wedding), w...

  • Our experience working with Michelle and the Westin was outstanding. We initially chose this hotel because it was among the most affordable but we never felt as though we compromised on the quality of our venue. The ambiance was excellent, the food delicious, and the service was truly above and beyond what we expected. Our guests have uniformly commented that they received a five star treatment, both in quality of service and experience. Michelle was responsive, attentive and fair and in those few moments there was confusion she was able to promptly resolve any difficulties. We would recommend Michelle and the Westin without qualification to anyone.

  • Westin did a great job hosting our ceremony and reception. They catered to our multiple food tasting trials and were helpful with questions. Everything the day of went off perfectly. The food was delicious- cocktail hour and dinner. During the planning, we occasionally had to wait a couple days to get responses to questions from their staff. Also, we were not informed that we'd hit the room block minimum and would receive a complimentary hospitality suite until the week of the wedding, which caused a little extra stress to stock the room once we learned about it. To our guests however, everything was absolutely flawless the whole weekend.

  • Overall, we were happy with the space. Ballroom had plenty of room and the day of staff were great. However, our journey to this was nothing less than frustration. We went through 3 different event coordinators, with the last one coming on about a week before the event. A big reason we chose this venue was we loved the first coordinator. Understandably staff can change. However the second coordinator gave us an ulcer. Unresponsive, dismissive, and non accommodating the whole way through. Even when we had the walk through, our other vendors commented that she seemed annoyed. Third coordinator had to get up to speed quick and she was much more responsive. However, we had explicit instructions printed for our wedding (placing the wedding itinerary on the guests chairs, place the poster boards during the reception) which were not followed. Our guests had no idea what was going on during the ceremony! Luckily we were able to get some compensation for the money we spent for those... Read more

  • We chose the Westin Arlington Gateway for our cocktail hour and reception. Pros: Included day of coordinator (responsive and flexible) Location (on orange line for out of town guests to access DC sites) Included bridal and parents of the bride and groom suite Quality and selection of food Cons: -The reception room and guest rooms were REALLY hot. Perhaps an issue with the air conditioner but very unpleasant when you want guests to have fun on the dance floor -Candy bar was not displayed as discussed (wanted multi-tier display and got a lazy plain display)
