  • The location, the set up, the food, the room arrangement, the service were all excellent. But it all could not happen without the professionalism of Mr Jeremiah Oshiro who put it altogether with his knowledge, his experience, his cultural awareness (very important) coupled with his own personal touch. A+ We are very happy with a memorable moment forever. Our heartfelt Thanks

  • The Westin was an absolute dream venue for our wedding. It was one of the first places we toured and we ended up booking it on the spot when we got there and first met with Elizabeth Murphy. From the first day she was professional, helpful, and appeared to genuinely care about our wedding and helping us plan the perfect celebration. She worked well with our vendors and was promptly responsive to everyone on our wedding team. Planning our wedding in the middle of a move across the country was a breeze because of the incredible service this place has to offer. Also, pro tip: this is one of the few venues that allows you do do sparklers send-offs! The views from the Ocean Blue Lawn are gorgeous, and there are plenty of gorgeous spots for photos. The Grand Pacific Ballroom was HUGE and the food was phenomenal. The resort itself is conveniently located, and the rooms are newly remodeled. The newlywed suite we stayed in was gorgeous, I slept in the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in ... Read more

  • We had the pleasure of the Westin opening a few weeks before our big fat Indian wedding on 8/18 (previously it was all Sheraton property until 7/2018) and everything was SPECTACULAR! I cannot thank Elizabeth Murphy and her team enough. For any wedding here, the best part of the Sheraton/Westin is that all your guests can stay on the property for the weekend and your wedding is on the same site, but still separate from where guests are staying so they aren't peeking in on your decorations the night before or intruding into your first look. The staff was incredibly helpful, they were accommodating with room changes leading up to the wedding, passed out welcome bags to over 70+ room bookings, helped set up decorations for our pre-wedding events, helped w/guests having breakfast/brunch in the Terramar Room in the Sheraton, and served ice cream on the day of the ceremony to our 350 guests (just to name a few of the things I really appreciated!). The property itself also has tons of great sp... Read more

  • Holy moly! Where to begin? Elizabeth Murphy at The Westin Carlsbad is a DOLL. From our initial tour a year beforehand, to helping throughout the process with diagrams of the layout (i.e. a legitimate drone photo taken of the site), recommendations for # people per table and photo locations, booking room reservations for us and our guests that weekend, menu tasting, and not to mention working through my absolute failure to communicate that our seating chart had changed the night before! I still feel horrible and wish I could give every staff member that night a giant hug for cleaning up after me and ensuring everyone was still served correctly ... especially those that were gluten-free weren't served the wrong plate! Elizabeth and the entire banquet team was kind, professional, and just amazing to work with. For the cost, it was absolutely worth every penny to us. We didn't have to worry about food, linens, tables, chairs, flatware, charger plates, drinkware -- they even provided decor ... Read more

  • WOW! What a fantastic day!!! We could not have asked for a better day! We planned our wedding from out of state over the past year. I thought it would be difficult, but Elizabeth was fantastic and made everything simple and fun! She is VERY nice and responsive to all calls and emails!! Gives great advice on best set ups, food options, vendors! Even FaceTime with us a few times and gave us walk around tours so we knew exactly how the set up would be. She is fantastic! The venue itself is beautiful!!! Perfect for an outdoor/indoor wedding. And the FOOD! Best wedding food ever!!!! The staff was so nice and courteous to the guests too! We could not have asked for a better venue or better people to plan our wedding with! Would definitely recommend!!!

  • What a perfect venue for our perfect day! My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth as our main contact on site for the venue and we instantly had such a positive connection with her that it made planning our wedding very easy and comfortable. Our ceremony was held on the lawn site with the ocean back drop and it was great. The whole hotel in itself gives you the feel that you truly are on a vacation and it offers a comforting atmosphere that allows everyone to enjoy themselves without worry. The food for our ceremony was DELICIOUS. All of our guests were complimentary of their dinners and this was very important to us as we all know how sometimes wedding food can be. Not the case here, exceptional entrees and appetizers. We truly had a great experience at the venue and Elizabeth was so helpful and great with everything. Thank you to her and the rest of the amazing staff for helping us achieve our best day ever!

    Liz and Bryan, Congratulations! It was so fun helping you over the last year and getting to know both of you. The day was picture perfect! Best of luck on your new beginnings together in a new city. Please stop by if you are ever back in Carlsbad. Elizabeth

  • If you're looking for an all-inclusive kind of package, the Westin is for you. Yes, I'll admit it was probably more than I budgeted for; however, it was all worth it. We were engaged in February of 2018 and were looking to get married within the year. While considering enough time to plan a wedding, October was just far enough out, but we didn't want to do it any later due to going into the holiday season. At X amount of $ per person, we got everything with the Westin we still would have had to hire other vendors for. Your price per person includes everything your guests will need, and with your booking with the Westin, it eliminated the needs for several other vendors involved. Less vendors, less risk of something going wrong the day of, which in my opinion, was worth every penny. It also eliminated a lot of stress of having to book other accommodations such as tables, chairs, bar tenders, and a caterer. All in all we had a great experience, we received so many compliments about how ... Read more

  • The pictures did not do the place justice. We had to plan the event from cross country. The event was amazing and the staff was amazing at responding to everything we needed. I would totally hold another event there again.

  • The experience at the Sheraton was over all really good. There were only a couple things on the day of that put a slight damper on my wedding day. For any Bride, I suggest you pay for a hotel room the day of - they placed me and my bridal party in a small conference room that did not have any windows - obviously this makes the lighting very harsh and my photos of me and my bridesmaid getting ready are not very nice as there is no windows or natural lighting. We also had asked for a slight switch in the salad as I personally do not like spring mix salads so we had switched it to the butter lettuce, on the day of the salad was placed in front of us with the spring mix, I was not going to freak out since its just salad; but it was a little disappointing since it was something we had talked about with the event coordinator at the Sheraton. The Last thing that I would suggest is that to tell them how you would like the cake served - we had 3 different flavors for our wedding cake a... Read more

  • We had our wedding in January 2018. Elizabeth was phenomenal in every way. She met with us early on and described all that she could offer. She then listened intently to our desires and worked with us to ensure that every need, desire, and idea we wanted was met all why staying within our budget. Elizabeth made planning a wedding easy, enjoyable, and fun. The event went off even better than we could have imagined and there were zero issues. Elizabeth and the venue were extremely accommodating and provided top level service throughout the entire planning and execution process. I would highly recommend Elizabeth and this venue to anyone who is looking to plan a wedding. THANK YOU ELIZABETH!!!

You both looked so happy and relaxed on your wedding and that is what I strive for. Please stop by and say hi, I love seeing my local Carlsbad couples! Elizabeth
