The wedding packages provided by the Fairfax Marriott are really convenient and well-worth the price, considering that in addition to dinner, it also included powder and changing rooms for the bridesmaids and groomsmen, holding rooms for the bridal party, and even an overnight suite for the bride and groom! We worked with Jim Intelli as our event coordinator, and he was just marvelous! As it was our first time planning a wedding, Jim provided us a lot of help and suggestions on what we needed to do, and he was always prompt and courteous in answering our emails, and met with us as much as we needed. The staff at the Marriott were also extremely warm and friendly; the next day, when we went downstairs for breakfast, everyone greeted and congratulated us!
Everything with the hotel went great except that people needed to be told in advance were the wedding party was getting ready.
