We recently had our ceremony and reception at the Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC. The service provided by all the staff was amazing-Buddee Clinton, their Director of Catering and Events, kept us right on schedule for the day and made sure all of our last minute change requests were taken care of--including adding meals for the a seated dinner less than 2 hours before the reception. The catering staff were very attentive to all of our guests and the food...guests are still raving about it!
The venue is spectacular-lots of natural light, and very romantic. Since the Hotel Monaco is a historical landmark, it fits right in with creating a unique Washington experience for your guests and the location is central to so many DC sites. Our guests, those who stayed in the hotel, and those who just came for the wedding, raved about how beautiful it was.
As a bride, the hotel suite (gorgeous) was perfect for having a hair and makeup team come to the room and to host family and friends throughout the day.
We could not have been happier with our entire wedding experience at the Hotel Monaco, Washington, DC.

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hotel Monaco. The Monaco was the perfect venue. I fell in love with the beautiful skylight in the room and the uniqueness of the hotel. Our chuppah was under the skylight, and it was just perfect with the natural light shining through during the ceremony. Guests loved the food, saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had, especially the beef. The dessert was also delicious!
The night went by seamlessly thanks to Buddee. He is extremely organized and knows exactly what he is doing. I trusted him completely throughout the wedding planning process. It was truly a perfect day thanks to Buddee and the incredible staff at the Monaco.

We planned our wedding in under 3 months, and with the help of Buddee at Hotel Monaco it was a truly seamless event and joy to plan. Our guests RAVED about the food - some of the best food they had at a wedding. Buddee helped us set up our reception so the night flowed and the tone was set early that we were there to celebrate - I have NEVER seen my friends and family dance like they did that night. It was truly exceptional. The venue speaks for itself in our photos and in the whole experience.
