    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 ceremony to be on one side, and everyone went into the designated cocktail hour area while they quickly and perfectly flipped the room for us. Everything was just beautiful, and it was so nice to have everything at the hotel so the out of town quests could just book a room or two in our wedding block right there! Our point of contacts were very responsive and easy to get a hold of as well. Thank you so much to the team at the Courtyard, our day was absolutely perfect.

    Wedding Hotel

    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.

    Outstanding Accomodations

    Dee from Courtyard was very helpful and accommodating to all of our guests. The location was very convenient to our venue, the Paradise Lady on the Mississippi River. I highly recommend the Courtyard!

    AWESOME Venue!

    I enjoyed working with the people at Courtyard Minneapolis Downtown. The coordinator was very responsive to my emails and provided answers in a timely manner. She was very energetic, positive, cheerful, and an all around person to work with. She did a fantastic job in organizing my wedding reception so that everything fell into place for all of my guests to enjoy and have a good time. The food was delicious and the service was AWESOME! I highly recommend this venue as a place for a wedding reception or for both a ceremony and reception.

    Wedding Reception

    We were the first wedding reception at Courtyard Marriot Downtown and it was AMAZING! Their team was so helpful with making our day exactly what we wanted. They have so many options!! They did all of our set up and take down, and took all our gifts and cards to our room so we knew that they were safe! The food was incredible, big portions! They cared about our wedding as if it was their own, great service!!!
