Traci, Fran, and the whole team at the Marriott (formerly Sheraton Society Hill) are fantastic – can’t thank them enough for making our wedding reception so amazing! Throughout the planning process, I worked with Traci who was so professional and easy to work with, she is so sweet – I absolutely loved working with her! She was so responsive to all my emails/calls/questions and while she was out on maternity leave for my actual wedding day, she organized everything perfectly before she left so it was an easy transition. Fran was my contact for the few weeks before the wedding and day-of, and he was just as amazing – completely made us feel at ease and the day of, we didn’t have to worry about one thing.
The food is amazing – Many of our guests commented how great all the food (especially the cocktail hour) was! You get to try a ton at the tasting which makes it hard to decide because everything is so good. The team is also super flexible and accommodating if you have any sp... Read moreecial requests – we met Kim, one of the servers, at our tasting who was also at the actual wedding – she went above and beyond, truly made us feel like royalty for a night!!
Nikki managed our hotel block and was extremely helpful – we had no issues at all and she was able to answer all of our (and our guests’) questions regarding the rooms.
We did face one slight complication because the Sheraton rebranded to the Marriott a few months before our wedding but Traci regularly shared updates on the status of the rebrand and some of the renovations going on at the hotel so we really didn’t have anything to worry about! The newly renovated rooms and lobby bar are gorgeous.
The evening was simply perfect and would definitely recommend the Marriott – great location in Old City (great for nearby photos) and an amazing value for Philly!
