May 2024 Wedding at Hotel Washington

We had our wedding at Hotel Washington in May 2024 and it was the best decision we made! After reviewing a few other hotels downtown, we loved that Hotel Washington offered three separate spaces for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Also, the views from the Sky Room CANNOT be beat and that was a huge draw for our out of town (and even local) guests. The day went off without a hitch and all of the staff, especially Mariah and Doug, were great to work with! After the wedding, we heard so many amazing reviews from our guests about the food served during cocktail hour and the reception! Overall, a 10 out of 10 experience!

Amazing Venue

We had our reception at Hotel Washington and we are so glad that we did! Stephanie, the hotel's Director of Social Catering, was so helpful all throughout the planning process, and so patient with all of our questions! The hotel was able to accommodate all of our requests and the set up of our reception was absolutely beautiful! The entire Hotel Washington team was so welcoming and helpful throughout all of our planning and the wedding weekend itself. We felt that all of our guests were well taken care of, and everyone really enjoyed the food! We highly recommend Hotel Washington!

Luxurious Wedding Package for a Great Value

Hotel Washington was far and away the best wedding venue we could have imagined. Hotel Washington's wedding package was a value for the extraordinary quality of location, service, and food. Our stay at Hotel Washington felt luxurious--everyone made us feel special and taken care of. A few hours before the wedding, my manicure on my left hand got messed up and the hotel spa came to my rescue! The amazing staff ran to my aid, helping me layer different polish colors to match the rest of my manicure. The hotel worked also with us to get a great rate for our guests. We could not recommend Hotel Washington for your event, or just a stay in the city, more!
