Delta Hotels by Marriott’s newly renovated space is absolutely stunning.   So smart with the art / wall hangings chosen that display local, recognizable locations in the Twin Cities area, as well as the contemporary, upscale, modern feel to their hotel.  Their space can accommodate an outdoor wedding ceremony in their courtyard, or an indoor ceremony in their ballroom, (perfect for plan B with Minnesota weather) with an even larger ballroom perfectly set and ready for receptions, not to mention the glorious guest rooms available for over night stays.  Read more about Delta Hotels by Marriott

Claire H. – Director of Sales and her team with Delta Hotels by Marriott was fantastic to work with. Claire said with the menu selections for TCWEP’s event, they wanted to showcase something different, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was great watching the chef’s station prepare pad thai for us, with incredible mandarin salad, chicken satay and oooo, the peanut curry sauce was ever so good! We were swooning over the food!

And hold on for the best cheesecake in the universe – with over 222 flavors,  MuddyPaws Cheesecake provided their top notch variety cheesecakes to each table for us to enjoy during our TCWEP Round Table Topic as we discussed What Variety of Services Do You Offer in Your Business?   It helps immensely to have these conversations as we get to know about each other’s businesses and how we can refer these services to potential clients.
