    Best Decision We Made!

    Booking Hotel Monaco was by far the best decision I made for my wedding. Buddee and his team made the process so easy for us, the food was great, the space was beautiful, and our guests had an amazing time. I was shocked at the level of service we received from planning to executing. There are so many highlights but I just want to list a few:
    1. Buddee took care of all the decorations and details. He scheduled a meeting three days before my wedding and asked me to bring the decor, including name tags, centerpieces, etc. I had so many items. When I arrived to the hotel, the valet team helped me bring them up, we went through the full day with Buddee, and then I showed him all of my decorations. He gave me a few suggestions on how they might set it up and then he took it from there. To me it was incredibly stress relieving to leave all of that up to his team. I didn’t have to do any decoration the day of.
    2. Buddee made my mother feel very special and taken care of. Which as anyone getting married knows is the most important part.
    3. The room we got ready in was beautiful. The staff were so thoughtful in bringing us appetizers and drinks to our room after the ceremony so we had a moment for just the two of us before the reception.

    I can’t recomend booking Hotel Monaco enough!

    Wonderful experience!

    It was a pleasure to work with Buddee and he exceeded our expectations. Buddee and his entire staff were extremely professional and they truly made sure that we had the best day of our lives. We would recommend The Hotel Monaco and Buddee to any of our friends and family looking for a fantastic wedding reception venue.

    The process starts with Buddee tailoring our wedding day to our specifications, and making sure no detail gets overlooked. The menu tasting exceeded our expectations, and it was really nice to see and taste all the delicious food we had for us and our guests. Buddee even made recommendations to us based on our tastes and feedback to him. Buddee and his staff really went out of their way to provide what they called “signature moments” for our day, and it truly made a difference. And of course, the cocktail hour space and main ballroom are absolutely amazing. The domed ceiling and white columns made it the perfect venue with a “DC feel” for us to have our reception, while still having the convenience of a classic hotel. Once item we were concerned about was the food, since never having been there for a wedding. You always hear that the food is going to be good, but The Hotel Monaco blew us away. The food was fantastic, and we received so many complements about the food, the presentation and the atmosphere in general. The ballroom and the unique architecture of the hotel provided an amazing backdrop for pictures. One of our favorite pictures of the night was us on the spiral stairs outside of the main ballroom.

    When I first got to the bridal suite on Friday, I was welcomed by a phone call from Buddee personally, asking if we needed anything. The care and attention to detail that Buddee and his staff provided us was like nothing I have ever experienced. My fiancé and I were very confident leading up to the wedding that everything would run smoothly and we can say that every single thing was perfect. During the wedding, their “Chief of Staff” during the reception took special care of our table, and made sure we had everything we needed. They even took special care of our parents, which made it feel very extra special. We are very thankful for Buddee’s hard work and he helped make our wedding day the most memorable day of our life!
