5 Star Wedding Venue!
Michael and the team at Mandarin Oriental DC are phenomenal! Everything is taken care of for you with efficiency and style. The hotel has plenty of luxury rooms for your guests to stay overnight so they don't have to travel after the wedding. As a photographer, it is so important to have a venue that understands weddings and handles all the logistics so the couple can enjoy their wedding day! Not only is the service 5 star but the hotel has plenty of stunning locations inside and out for gorgeous photo opportunities. I highly recommend hosting your wedding at the Mandarin Oriental DC so you can enjoy your wedding day!Sent on 11/19/2019

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.Sent on 04/18/2019

amazing, more than I ever imagined
The wedding, the organization of it, was absolutely flawless. Every big and small detail, things we thought about, forgot to consider, and things we could not have imagined that they might matter – Michael and his team were absolutely on top of it all. The treatment we got, the wonderful staff they have (running of a ship like this -- completely flawless), personalized approach, helping tailor our wedding to our personalities. We really got a royal treatment. The presidential suite was like being in the Versailles for a few days. The luxury, the details, the stunning views, and the set up for unforgettable wedding pictures. Michael was on to of every detail during the preparation process and the day of the wedding. The food was outstanding; the location is unmatched; it was an easy choice!Sent on 11/18/2019
