We are so blown away by the Bellevue Club! They truly exceeded our expectations the day of our wedding, and the whole day went without a hitch. Food was superb (definitely get the beef tenderloin!); service was impeccable; location was convenient; parking was complimentary; atmosphere was elegant and warm; in-house decor was beautiful; pricing was straightforward and competitive; and Jill and the team were wonderful! If you are wanting a stress-free day, professional and well-seasoned staff, and good value, then this is the PERFECT venue. Thank you, Bellevue Club!
My husband & I were recently married in July 2015 at the Hyatt at the Bellevue. We could not be happier that we decided to use the Bellevue as our wedding venue. With a lot of out-of-town guests, the Bellevue was extremely accommodating and easy to work with. Lisa was our wedding coordinator, and she was absolutely amazing. I never worried or was stressed once about the venue or the events of the day. She knows what she is doing! She was there in the morning while we were getting ready, saw us off on our trolley and was there to greet us when we returned from Mass. Everything ran smoothly, largely because of her. We had around 340 guests (many from outside of the country) and held our reception in the Grand Ballroom. It was so beautiful, I cried when Lisa brought my husband and I in before cocktail hour for a sneak-peek. It was the definition of classy and elegant, literally everything I ever dreamed of. We have gotten so many compliments on the impeccable staff, food and service. I would HIGHLY recommend the Bellevue!
Outstanding Venue!Reviewed on 9/20/2011 Lea L
We couldn't have picked a better place! The new renovation of Bellevue Club's ballroom is spectacular. The lighting is adjustable in an array of colors, so pipe and drape was not needed. The lighting allowed us to change the mood of the room throughout the evening. The staff was very accommodating, and we didn't have anything to complain about.
My husband and I did not have our wedding here, but this is where we stayed the night of our wedding. Weddings are so exhausting but Hotel Bellevue made sure that we had a nice, relaxing stay in order to unwind after the day's events. The food was delicious and the tub in our room was huge! A wonderful experience overall.
September Wedding at the Bellevue ClubReviewed on 10/09/2011 Emily P
We had a beautiful wedding at the Bellevue Club in September. The wedding coordinator at the Club, Jill, and her team did an amazing job and no detail was overlooked. We had 150 guests at our wedding and everyone had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful. Many of our family and friends also stayed the night at the Hotel Bellevue for a discounted price. The rooms were very nice, spacious and comfortable. We wouldn't change a thing about our wedding day and definitely recommend it to anyone looking to have their wedding in the greater Seattle area.

The perfect reception site!Reviewed on 5/17/2010 Kristen F
I loved the Bellevue Club hotel. We looked EVERYWHERE for a reception site, from Seattle, to Snoqualmie, to Kirkland. Finally we discovered the Bellevue Club Hotel. They were wonderful to work with, always in communication, incredible rooms, and the food was wonderful!
