    The best wedding venue in the DMV

    In short, the Mandarin Oriental went above-and-beyond to execute a perfect wedding. The Mandarin shines in both experience and professionalism, leading off with the Director of Catering and Events, Michael Deltette. From Day 1, Michael and his team worked hard to ensure that our minds were at ease and that each of our requests (big and small) were addressed. On the actual day of our wedding, the entire hotel staff came together to ensure that from start to finish, nothing was overlooked. My wife and I highly recommend the Mandarin Oriental - you simply will not find a better venue in the DMV.

    Best wedding ever!!

    Michael at the Mandarin was the reason we chose that venue! Working with him for about one year made us realize that we had made the perfect choice! There is attention given to every detail of service from valet greetings to turn down at night. The food is exceptional Every question one might have about their event is answered immediately. If I could, I would give Michael, The Mandarin, and everyone associated with the venue all 10s!!!

    Mandarin Oriental/Michael Deltette

    I can’t imagine a more perfect venue than the gorgeous Mandarin Oriental for my Daughter’s Wedding reception. Everything from the planning stages to the conclusion were nothing less than spectacular. Almost every guest commented to us that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding reception and people gushed over the hotel and their staff. The best part of the Mandarin is with it you get Michael Deltette, Director of Catering and Events. From our first meeting with Michael, it was apparent that he truly listened to what my Daughter wanted and totally understood what her needs were and what was important to her. He guided us on every aspect of the planning and we always knew that he was keeping in mind what was important to us. He connected us with outside vendors, florists, photographers, hair stylists and limo services. When you mention Michael’s name, it is obvious he has total and complete respect in his field. Michael is like having a Guardian Angel in your corner. You know that you don’t have to worry about anything because before you can think it, he has it taken care of it. Michael is totally and completely exceptional and we would highly recommend the Mandarin Oriental and Michael.
