Bad: Connect You to the Destination
We hosted our daughter's wedding weekend at the hotel. This included the wedding rehearsal, dinner, the ceremony, reception, and gift opening the next day. The hotel staff provided us with excellent service at all times of the day, no matter how busy they were. Every time we passed a staff person, they always greeted us with a smile and asked if we had everything we needed. We had many guests from out of state stay at the hotel and they all experienced excellent service as well! This made our weekend even more pleasurable because we felt like we, and our guests, were treated with great care in such a beautiful place!

The reception at Crowne Plaza West was fantastic!!  The appetizers generated compliments on the outstanding quality and taste.  The dinner was superb!  People were commenting on how efficient the service was and how the food was not at all like wedding meals they had had elsewhere.  The custom salad generated numerous raves... People talked about the meat "melting in their mouths"... The staff did an outstanding job and I think you have some people that now have Crowne Plaza West as their hotel of choice in the Twin Cities!

We and our guests had a wonderful time at our wedding reception, thanks to you, your excellent staff and the Crowne Plaza West.  The food, beverages, atmosphere and friendly helpful staff could not have been better.  Your staff made sure the setup and decorations were ready for our guests to arrive.  Your planning suggestions and attention to detail were all top notch.  Also, kudos to your banquet kitchen and chef, the menu was exactly as planned, presentation appetizing, and of course the food and wines delectable!
