Client Testimonials
Hear what our clients have to say...

"Amazing Venue! Amazing Team! The venue is great. Every staff member we interacted with was happy, willing to help, and they all went above and beyond to accommodate us. Our main point of contact was Shauna. She is amazing! David and Cathy also helped with the planning and were extremely helpful as well. The banquet captain was great. The entire service was great. Our special night went exactly how we had planned it, and it was all thanks to the amazing team at The East Town Ballroom." - Mora Wedding

"It was an absolute pleasure working with the Courtyard team for my wedding on August 4, 2018. I cannot say enough great things about this venue. PLEASE do you yourself a favor and relieve your wedding stress by choosing this venue to work with on your day! Quality of Service - Quality of service was great. Staff went above and beyond their duties and was very open to helping all of the vendor setups go smoothly, regardless of what was technically their role or not. This team displayed a great amount of teamwork in execution of my day. Whether it was assisting the decorators, helping my bridesmaids set up for rehearsal dinner, nothing was off the table and I appreciate the quality of service that was provided. Responsiveness - Kyle, David (Dee) and Dane (A/V) were extremely responsive to my requests and responded within hours of emails and worked many weekends responding to my inquiries, researching my proposals and making sure that I had what I needed. Flexibility - Kyle and his staff were extremely flexible and accommodated some of our most difficult requests. Where the greatest amount of flexibility was exercised was with the room accommodations. David (Dee) was extremely responsive and allowed us to make changes to guests rooms upon requests due to flight scheduling. Whenever I put in a request that was unique or different, the response I received was "let me look into that" vs. a flat out "no, we can't do that". Everything was on the table for discussion and in the rare instance something could not be accommodated, I was explained the reason and given alternative solutions. Food - The food at this venue is absolutely amazing and we received so many compliments from guests afterwards. Not your typical hotel food. Portions are filling and on the larger side and appropriately aligned to the cost. If you are looking for a classy venue that provides great value has excellent staff, this is your place!" - Leslie & Kojo

“I want to say that I had no complaints with anything. We were told by many people it was the best food they have had at a wedding. So thank you to you, and everyone else involved. I will be sure to recommend you guys to any and every one!  Thanks again for everything!” - Kristen & Luke

"We got married at the East Town Ballroom on 10/6/18. We had the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in the ballroom/pre-function area and it all moved more smoothly than I ever could've imagined and it was even more beautiful than I thought it would be! Our day would not have been possible without the help of the Courtyard staff, who was high-spirited, highly responsive, and always willing to help. The only thing that went wrong was one special request meal was incorrect, but other than that literally every other aspect of the day went on just fine. They even blocked the Courtyard off for us so we could take pictures against the gorgeous vine wall! We got so many compliments on how beautiful the space was, but we got even more compliments on how good the food was (the food was absolutely delicious, I agree)! I highly, highly recommend this venue to everyone. The team will make sure that you have an absolutely perfect day, just like ours was." - Michael & Darren


"I would highly recommend anyone that is looking for a venue for their wedding reception to check out the Courtyard Marriott Minneapolis. Our wedding was on December 27 and after touring several different hotels we found that this location had the best quality and best service for the best price. We had so many people come up to us afterwards and tell us that the food was the best that they've ever had at a wedding. The staff overall was incredibly accommodating to any of our requests and questions which made it the most fun and easiest wedding we could have asked for." - Madeline & Ryan

"We have received so many compliments on the venue, staff and food. It far exceeded our expectations and we would highly and without reservation, recommend this site for any special event." - Julie & Kevin

"We celebrated our wedding on August 7th at this venue. We are so thrilled with everything. Our wedding reception was perfect and flawlessly executed." - Olivia & Danial
