    My advice to any couple looking for a wedding venue, booking with Holiday Inn Washington Dulles was way above my expectations, from the gorgeous renovated facility to the personalized service with Michelle Pulliam to the outstanding hospitality with the catering staff, service desk, room service overall was just amazing. If your still looking, I would say look no further as pricing overall was a key factor in selecting this venue, they provided a great quality of service along with the wedding venue and reception package. Lastly, I leave you with this if location is your deciding factor they offered great rooms with great pricing as many of our family stayed three nights, the hotel has a great PUB that also served great food and great pricing for our late night hunger pains :)... Over all Michelle and her staffed received a 100% satisfaction from myself and my parents. Michelle made my experience w/the bride my sister a great experience anything we needed she assisted and completed the request in a timely manner always professional .

    My 11/30/19 Wedding

    Not sure if my previous experience posted. So I’m doing it again. Coordinators Stefanie Timmons and Heather El-Zein made memories of my wedding beautiful & unforgettable for my family and friends. From start to finish with planning, food tasting, coordinating, decorating, & the actual wedding Itself. I’m still in awe of their expertise. They both went above and beyond to make my day a magical memory. Stefanie and Heather both were present and guiding my rehearsal the night prior to the wedding (it went on much later than expected / too many chiefs in my family & they didn’t complain) while supporting me (I was all nerves... thanks for the red wine!). On My wedding day, Heather again coordinated everything while again calming my nerves (more red wine). All bumps or unexpected events.... Heather ironed out smoothly while again dealing with all of my “chiefs.” Anyone in the DMV planning a wedding or event / please don’t pass up this Gem / Holiday Inn.l Dulles. My family is still posting on FB how beautiful and Epic my wedding was. Thank you again Stefanie and Heather. I plan on doing my next party / event here.
