A dream wedding in the perfect downtown location

From start to finish our planning and overall wedding experience with the Kimpton Hotel Monaco was outstanding. Joseph Lee was always prompt and thorough in his replies to all of our questions. He took time and consideration when helping plan all the details of our wedding. Natalie Ford was incredibly accommodating when managing our room block. The entire night went off without any issues and the venue itself was stunning. They had a huge selection to choose from for food. We loved the meals we chose. All our guests were served their meals promptly and their dietary restrictions were handled with care. The concierge and bellmen were so welcoming and kind. They made loading/unloading all our decor and gifts easy. The valet was also incredibly quick and managed our belongings and cars with care. The suite provided was gorgeous and provided the perfect amount of room for my small bridal party. The hotel was so wonderful my husband and I stayed an extra night to enjoy it all for a little longer. Would totally recommend.

Incredible!!

We had the most wonderful wedding that you could imagine at the Hotel Monaco. Joseph was the on-site wedding planner and he made everything so so easy and stress-free for us. The food was all incredible and had such a wide variety of options. The location for the event in the heart of DC would be tough to beat. The ballrooms are very stylish and all of our guests raved about the beauty the venue. Please do yourself a favor and visit this location and with Joseph if you are looking to get married in the DC area. You will not regret it.
