Our reception was in the Grand Ballroom and it was so beautiful, this is a room that does not require much decoration! The food was amazing and the service was exceptional. We loved everything about it including our gorgeous room that night (which had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne from the staff)!

We had our reception in the Westin Ballroom. They have a great area for the cocktail hour as well, that is separate from the Ballroom which is a unique atmosphere. All my guests said it was the most beautiful reception they had ever been to with the marble floors, the gold archways, the windows, and high ceilings, it is superior to any venue we explored. (and we toured at least 15 reception venues) The staff were VERY professional, friendly, and we had the same people for our rehearsal dinner, reception, and brunch the next morning which made it easy and personable. The Westin also offers their presidential suite for the bride and groom the night of the reception with champagne waiting! It was a dream come true. It's a little pricy, but worth the money. I would recommend this to any bride/groom.

The staff at the Westin were extremely responsive and helpful in planning my wedding, and it was beautiful. It was great to have my wedding here, I definitely didn't need a wedding coordinator because the staff from the Westin made sure I had all my i's dotted and t's crossed. I had rave reviews about my food as well, and everyone was very attentive before and during the reception as well. Highly recommended!

The Westin was a wonderful location to host my November wedding. Of all the locations around Columbus that I have seen I believe the Westin has the most beautiful ballroom of all. The staff went above and beyond my expectations and the food was absolutely wonderful. You can't go wrong having your wedding at the Westin Columbus!

There's no question that the Westin hotel is visually stunning, and the staff is equally incredible. They were there with us every step of the way, and worked with us on every possible thing we needed all the way through our special night. The atmosphere was incredible, the food was simply amazing, and the staff made us feel like we were their only guests. I can't tell you how many compliments we got from our guests about our wedding day. I highly recommend the Westin to anyone for any reason.

The reception was held in the Grand Ballroom, a lovely, exquisite venue that was elegant and perfect for our daughter's wedding. The hotel also provided convenient accommodations for the guests who needed them. The food and service were outstanding and we were very pleased with our whole experience. We had many compliments from our guests and it was also very fun.

This venue is spectacular. It is absolutely beautiful. When you add to that there is incredible service, it is a total win. I was able to relax on my big day as they handled all the setup, even all my crazy little details.

The ballroom at the westin is amazing. With all the marble and victorian charm, you can't go wrong. Because of it's beauty it requires very little to decorate-- we only added centerpices on the tables, and the room was gorgeous (a money saver).
While the cost of the Westin isn't cheap, a lot is included and for us it made the most sense not to have to worry about booking every little item. They take care of it for you and it's all very elegant.
We worked with Michael and he was very helpful. He had a lot of ideas for ceremony sites and worked with us in creating our dinner menu. He knows what he is doing and won't lead you in the wrong direction.
Some other perks for booking at the Westin:
- We received so many compliments on the food we served.
- Bride and groom get a complimentary suite the night before and night of the wedding. It is amazing and it really makes you feel special on the wedding weekend.
- The service is impeccible.

I really wanted to be in a hotel for my guest's convenience but did not want a standard conference room feel to the ballroom. The Westin has a beautiful marble ballroom that is stunning and does not need a lot of decoration. In addition, they were easy to work with, the staff was freindly and helpful the day of (they made everything look exactly as I requested!), and all of our guests raved about the food. Finally, they gave us a complimentary room (that was huge) for Friday and Saturday night.

From the very beginning, we were impressed with the Westin. Responsiveness is the first sign of strong customer service, and Craig Tremblay was very quick to respond to our inquiries at any time of day. He also worked with us in customizing our ceremony to accommodate some Indian traditions. Additionally, the Grand Ballroom is quite majestic and a grand venue for a wedding. We could not have been happier with our choice, and our guests were raving about what a beautiful venue we picked! Definitely more of a boutique feel than a convention-y hotel feel!

We could not have been more pleased with the outcome of our wedding at the Westin Columbus. The ball room was amazing! The staff treated us as if we were royalty and made the biggest day of our lives so beautiful and one that we will never forget. The building and architecture are just stunning and we felt so blessed to be wed in such a historical venue. The suites are to die for and the food was simply fablous. It is a must see! We would like to thank everyone at the Westin for making our special day like a dream.

I can't say enough great things about the Westin and it's staff. Everyone from Michael the Wedding Planner, to Desk staff and the bartenders were excellent.

The entire weekend was amazing but it wouldn't have been the same if it wasn't for the fabulously attentive and gracious staff at The Westin! From the front desk to the food to the housekeeping staff to the sales team...all were wonderful and helped to make our dream wedding come true!!!

We booked The Westin for our reception because we fell in the love with the elegance of the ballroom and desired an exceptional level of service that we knew The Westin could provide. We worked with Michael who was so accommodating and helpful. The day of the wedding, the service was impeccable, the food was delicious and everything went smoothly. The Westin has truly mastered the art of the wedding reception!
