About Crowne Plaza Crystal City

The Crowne Plaza Crystal City is a hotel in the greater Washington, D.C. area where couples can celebrate their wedding. This venue’s ballroom offers a modern city setting for the big day with classic touches such as geometric wallpaper and chandeliers with shades. Couples can find this contemporary hotel in Northern Virginia, only a seven-minute drive from Arlington National Cemetery.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 180 guests can join couples for their wedding at the Crowne Plaza Crystal City. The venue has two main event rooms, the Alexandria Ballroom and the Arlington Room. These rooms feature modern lighting and wallpapers in a subtle yet engaging style. The lighting in the rooms ranges from bright to subdued, allowing couples and guests to transition seamlessly from dinner to dancing the night away. The lighting can also be adjusted to accommodate other lighting provided by couples. Soft carpeting runs underfoot in these rooms, the largest of which can be divided into smaller salons to fit couple’s needs for their ceremony, reception or other wedding event. This may include a bridal shower or engagement party at the hotel.

    I coordinated our wedding reception primarily with Lindsey Jacobs (Catering Manager) and Mauricio Cortez (Banquet Manager). Both were extremely professional, accommodating, and friendly. The reason I went with the Crowne Plaza, (p.s., they also manage events for the nearby Holiday Inn) was because of their great reviews on weddingwire.com and because they provided most of the things needed to throw a party so I didn't have to scramble around to find extra vendors! Lindsey was particularly awesome with helping us stick to our schedule and have everything flow. Mauricio did a fantastic job with our décor which incorporated beautiful holiday centerpieces my Mom created for each table. The backdrop, which made our sweetheart table really stand out, was meticulously put together by Mauricio and we were so pleased with how it turned out. All in all, both Lindsey and Mauricio put together a great reception - one I'm still receiving compliments on.

    Kimberly Peterson and Mauricio Cortez was was tremendous in the planning coordination of our wedding. We called on a very short notice request and they made it happen with no stress to myself and my wife. The communication from them prior to, throughout and after our wedding was outstanding. They even called after to ensure that our stay at the hotel after the ceremony was to our satisfaction. We truly appreciated the extra services provided and the way they went out of their way even with a short (3 day) notice. Extraordinary service! Thanks from Mr. & Mrs. Jones

    I worked with Kimberley (venue coordinator) as my bride's Day of coordinator. She was amazing to work with. She was very helpful and her team and herself really helped bring the event together. Anyone looking for an event, definitely needs to check out the Crowne Plaza.
