    I would love any info or opinions on the Westin or Marquis hotels. My fiance and I have narrowed it down to either of those hotels and I haven't found many postings on either one, so any ideas are greatly appreciated!!

    Oh yeah, we are planning on 50 - 100 people and for sometime this November.

    Thanks!

      I can't remember where I read it, not here.... but there was negative reviews about the Marquis. I will see if I can find it somewhere. It looks like a beautiful place ...it was more about issues with the coordinator.

        Congratulations!

        Everything else aside (from a photographers perspective) I would choose The Marquis hands down. I have shot at both hotels. The Marquis will offer many photo-ops and there is quick access to an ample sized beach with great light.

          They are somewhat different. They are both higher class hotels, luxurious but not high-end. The Marqu­s is less than half the size of Westin Regina. Both are on the corridor and that gives them an air of exclusivity, excellent for honeymooners. On my side of things, photographic, I would choose the Westin Regina for its numerous photo locations and the beach offers more places to boost photography. Architecture-wise, the Westin is also superb, it won a prize for its design back when they finished it, about 7 years ago. Foodwise, though, I personally would prefer the Marquis, that's my experience. Hope it helps you

            Hello,

            Please read my recent post. Maybe this will help you decide.

              There is a recent negative review about the Westin (maybe it is the above poster--Lizette's?). I would link it if I knew how.. Lizette, if it is you, could you post a link to your review?

              I have not been to the Marquis, but I did get married at the Westin in August 2008, so if you'd like to ask any questions I will be happy to answer them. The Westin has very unique architecture, designed by famous architect Javier Sordo Madaleno, and there are a lot of great photo possibilities there.

                I have stayed at both, although I wasn't married at either... I prefer the Marquis.

                  Marquis, definitely. I have worked and stayed at both hotels and they are really nice, service and all. But it seems to me that Marquis will provide a better service for you. Should you need more detailed answer pls let me know, as I would not like to openly hurt any feelings! he, just not my style. Good Luck!

                    Thank you for sharing those photos Maura they are nice! I always say the Westin is a very unique place but seldom chosen but the photo ops are great and plenty!
