Westin or Marquis?

Recommended Posts

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 Marquís 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 popcorn.gif

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.

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!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
