My wife and I love Michael Deltette and the Mandarin Oriental
After visiting over a dozen venues in Washington DC, we arrived at our final destination the Mandarin Oriental and were greeted by Michael Deltette (Director of Catering & Events). My wife and I instantly fell in love with the venue and Michael was the icing on the cake for us. His devotion to our big day was prioritized and let me tell you how much peace of mind that gives a Bride & Groom. There was never a single time where there was an unanswered question. As you can imagine the stress that comes along with wedding preparation this was very important to us. Complete 5 star service from beginning until end. As the day of the wedding approached it really allowed my Wife and I to focus on our big day. Once the day arrived, the Mandarin Oriental and Michael followed through with every promise. The way Michael handled every step of the way was exceptional. Just looking at him on his knees fixing my wife's dress before she walked into the reception showed me exactly how much he cared and the pride he took with his job. Most importantly he was never pushy and always made sure we were comfortable with every decision on our budget. I can't imagine there being someone in the business with his experience and work ethic. At least we weren't able to find anyone else when we took a look at the other venues. I highly recommend you considering the Mandarin Oriental as your venue, you will not be disappointed and it was money very well spent.

5-Star Service at Mandarin Oriental
I would highly recommend Michael Deltette and the entire staff at Washington's Mandarin Oriental to any couple planning their wedding. I am so happy we had our New Year's Eve wedding there and am so grateful for Michael's expertise, exquisite taste and professionalism. Our guests were so impressed by everything about the Mandarin; in particular they thought the venue design was so elegant and that the food quality was superior. I also am thrilled with how upscale the service was.
Pick the Mandarin- you will not be disappointed! It is hands down the best in town.
