5-Star! A+, First Class Service at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, DC
My spouse and I felt so blessed to have our wedding hosted at Mandarin Oriental, DC. And we could not have asked for a better event coordinator, Michael Deltette (Director of Catering & Events) who was so "Ahhmaazzingg," I mean really, exceptionally AMAZING! I can’t imagine how my wedding would have been like without Michael there.Sent on 04/22/2019
Michael made us feel very important and always his priority from day one until the last hour of the event. Putting a wedding together was really stressful for us. But with Michael’s experience and professionalism, he just knew what to do to make everything seamless. He was always available to provide advice and recommendations when needed and he’s never pushy to anything that we’re uncomfortable doing--small details that some of us notice and are grateful for. Also, you can tell how much he cared for our event because it showed on little things that he did--like fixing my wife’s dress just before she walked into the wedding reception. Our wedding was small and intimate, but we truly believe that our event felt elegant because of people like Michael and his supportive team who took care of us in every step of the way.
Everybody was accommodating, responsive and helpful. My spouse and I, together with our guests loved every bit about our Mandarin Oriental experience.
The valet greeters--so welcoming!
The venue location--gorgeous!
The event organization--flawless!
To Michael and team, THANK YOU for making our wedding possible and for providing us the experience of a lifetime!

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
