I vote Hyatt, wholeheartedly. Four Seasons is greatly over rated, in my opinion. Intercontinental has great service but(in my opinion) is inconsistent and the rooms are small. Westin resorts are nice… But you posted this in destination weddings so I think you’re looking into another country and I’m nor sure if Westin has resorts outside of the US. Regular Westin hotels are nice… Consistent… Usually way less money than Four Seasons or Intercontinental. But Hyatt wins it for me when it comes to hotels outside the US. Service is consistent, price is great, and they strive to incorporate local flavor into each hotel. Every Hyatt has a unique style while still remaining true to the brand.

I have had a consistently good experience with Marriott – and they’re practically the only place Fiance will stay.

Oh, I forgot about Marriott! Marriott is good, consistent, solid. It’s more than adequate as a place to stay. I don’t think it’s goal is luxury, though. Most Marriott hotels I have seen seem to be gearing toward a business traveller.

Marriott and Westin have been good to me 🙂

Although within the Marriott family, I like Renaissance

@rbuchanan09:  Four Seasons  – always, Westin – depends on the properties, and if you want Marriott luxury look for the “JW” locations, as they are always the top of the Marriott brand. Where are you getting married?

I go to tripadvisor.com whenever I travel to see guest ratings!

We’re going with Hilton. Hilton corporate has been great to us. The event people at the local Hilton we’re using? Meh! Thank goodness for corporate fixing their snafus.

We are most definitely a Marriott family– I love their rewards/points programs.

Marriott, Westin, and Starwood Hotels (which I think Westin belongs to).

Go to expedia.com and do a search for the respective hotels and read the ratings of the guests who stayed there.

As for me, I never miss with Hilton & Hyatt hotels.  Marriott has made multi-million dollar renovations on many of their properties, so they may be newer.  But again, it also depends on the feel of your wedding theme.  More modern or more traditional?  That’s what you should go by.  Some are more old-world while others are more modern/boutique in style.  These are all generally good properties but see who gives you the overall best deal with the look you have in mind.

Four Seasons is our favorite hotel. Their beds are soooo comfortable. We are actually going to buy a bed from them when it’s time for a new mattress. We both can’t wait!!!

Just replied to your other post about Seattle bees, just wanted to chime in that my friend booked the Imperial Suite at the Westin downtown and it was soooo nice!  It’s so huge, she had a brunch there the morning after the wedding.  Downside is that parking is like $40 a night.  But that’s probably normal around here…
