Our event planner, Sara Wanderlingh, was beyond phenomenal. She always made me feel relaxed because she had everything so well thought out, planned and organized. Even the night of the wedding, she helped me fix the bussle in my gown. I think she really assured us that we made the right decision in choosing The Omni as our venue. The staff during the reception was so helpful and polite. They ran everything run smoothly and look beautiful. Thank you for making our wedding perfection.

I was totally impressed with the professionalism, efficiency and friendliness shown to us from the very beginning of planning our daughter's wedding. Sara Wanderlingh was outstanding from the very beginning. She was so friendly, efficient and professional the entire 10 months of planning for this event. If I sent an email, she answered it in the fastest time I have ever seen. Her answers were always so happy, encouraging using words like "absolutely we could do that for you!" She had good recommendations when we needed help with things. Her expertise really showed through. My daughter and I felt like we had a friend watching out for us. We will miss her and are so happy that we had the chance to work with her.

We had our November wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, & reception) at the Omni Charlottesville and cannot say enough good things about the Omni. From the start, the Sales and Catering teams were amazing - they were very responsive, had great suggestions, and played a huge part in the success of planning our wedding. We had our ceremony in one-third of the ballroom and it was transformed into our reception area during the cocktail hour. This transformation was absolutely stunning! The Omni staff followed our decoration wishes perfectly, and everything looked beautiful. And the Atrium was a beautiful place for cocktail hour! Our guests raved about the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Downtown Mall. Additionally, the food and drink service was wonderful at the reception. The food was delicious (all of our guests said it was the best wedding food they've had!) and the service staff made sure it was replenished. The staff also made sure our wine and champagne glasses were never empty. Their prompt service helped to make our reception very enjoyable! Beautiful venue for a wedding and great package options for food/beverage/facilities!
My husband and I were married and celebrated our wedding reception this past weekend at The Omni. Every single detail of our experience at The Omni was fantastic. Sara Wanderling made the wedding preparation and process so much less stressful for us. Her attention to detail, customer service, promptness, friendliness was the best of anyone else we worked with during this experience. She made it all work. The reception room was stunning, the food fantastic, the service was impeccable, the executive suite had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries upon our arrival after the reception, and all of our gifts from the reception were delivered to the room for us. All of the small details really made this experience one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. This experience was superb, and I will recommend The Omni to everyone I know.
