Funds from the Swan Hotel and revenue from venue rentals help support our programs at the Northwest Maritime Center.
Our event in January 2024 went extremely well. Our contact was responsive, helpful and nice. Communication with the venue was easy and timely. Our day of contact was friendly, attentive and helpful (especially when we had to move all the chairs around a different way – due to our speakers last minute request). Food service from the Lighthouse Cafe was super, everyone loved the food and the team from Lighthouse was super nice and helpful (they even did our dishes for us)!!!! Would totally use this space again for any other event we might be having.
We used half of the larger space offered and were able to bring in our own food and beverages. The staff were very accommodating and did a wonderful job of setting the space up to meet our needs.
Our group loved the space for our event. It’s elegant in a subtle way. The person who did day of set-up was fantastic. The only downside was being billed for every hour we were on site even for set up. A flat fee for the day rather than charging by the hour would be less stressful to set up and clean up as fast as possible. The staff was easy to work with and accommodating to our requests. The view is spectacular and the location amidst a variety of lodging options made for a wonderful event. I would definitely recommend Northwest Maritime Center.
This is our second year hosting our company Holiday Party at the NW Maritime Center and it was another home run! They set up the room for you and make sure everything is done correctly. They have an employee there the whole time just in case you have an issue. The room is a perfect size for our group (if not a little big) so there was plenty of socializing. We will use them again next year.
We are so glad we chose the NW Maritime Center for our September wedding! The plaza was perfect for our ceremony with a beautiful view of the ocean and the reception area was gorgeous as well. The Maritime Center staff were extremely communicative and easy to work with. We hired several of their preferred vendors and were super happy with how everything came together to make our wedding day memorable and stress free.
I loved having my wedding reception at the Northwest Maritime Center. The large room with its upper decks has fantastic water and mountain views. I loved the natural wood throughout the space. There was ample space for my 120 guests to sit, dance, and socialize both indoors and outdoors. I appreciated the flexibility to provide my own food and beverage. Many of my guests enjoyed staying across the street at the Swan Hotel. It was a magical experience!
