11 Embassy Suites by Hilton Des Moines Downtown Reviews
Married on 07/20/2013
We first met with Jessica after having a bad experience with our previously booked venue. She was able to take a stressful situation and turn it into a simple, fun, and exciting day - the way it ... Read more should be! Jessica and the hotel made everything flow and transition perfectly from the time of our initial meet until we checked out the day after the wedding. I should mention that we had our ceremony in the atrium, cocktail hour in the patio area, and then the reception in the ball room - so they had a lot to make happen, and did so with no interruption to our guests. I really have nothing but great things to say. The food was great, the decorations looked perfect and were at no additional cost (unless you wanted something they don't have in stock), and the service was outstanding. Rehearsal was also a breeze. Jessica was there to make sure we had everything we needed and our guests enjoyed the complimentary cocktails and snacks provided by the hotel. I was told that we had one of the best rehearsal nights by many people in our party and that our wedding was a blast. I highly reccomend the Des Moines Embassy Suites for any of your wedding needs!

The Embassy Suites on the River was so fabulous to work with. Jessica the event coordinator took her time to explain pricing, each package available, and she was very flexible with her time to meet ... Read more us. She made both my husband and I very confident with our choice to have our reception at the Embassy! She's hard working and put in just as much time as we did to have the most beautiful reception ever. The Embassy crew accommodated to a large reception and guest list. We chose plated dinner for our guests and everyone got their food within a few minutes of each other. There wasn't any time waiting around for plates to be brought out. It was simply amazing! I would highly recommend Jessica and The Embassy Suites to any bride to be for a successful stress free planning party :)
