    We held our daughter's wedding at Dupont Circle Hotel three weeks ago. We were thrilled with the planning and execution of the entire event by David Houde, the events manager at the hotel. David's professionalism and attention to detail were evident throughout every phase of this celebration.

    Dupont Circle Hotel is a great place to host a wedding. The entire staff, from front desk staff to valet parking staff to bellman service were all extremely professional and welcoming. The hotel itself is modern and luxurious. We were given a really good weekend rate for our guests. My wife and I were upgraded to a suite (totally unexpected); a bottle of wine and a plate of fruit awaited us.

    We met with David the day before the wedding. He went over each and every detail of the wedding. No detail was overlooked. He introduced us to James, the food and beverage manager. Both David and James were present during the entire wedding and reception the following day.

    We held the ceremony in the Glover Park Room. We had full use of the wireless sound system. The after-ceremony reception was held in the Foxhall Room (the fireplace was lit for added ambiance). The bar service and hors d'oeuvres service were very efficient (the food was great). The dinner and dancing were held in the Dupont Ballroom. We had full and private use of the entire space, including excellent restroom facilities.

    Dinner service was excellent: the food was great, well-prepared, and efficiently served. We danced until 11:00 pm; David reserved a large space in the hotel bar for partygoers who wanted to continue the celebration. We closed the place after 1:00 am.

    We received excellent value for our investment in Dupont Circle Hotel as the venue for our daughter's wedding. This place is fabulous, mainly due to David Houde's professionalism and attention to detail. Look no further for a spectacular wedding venue in Washington, D.C.

    My daughter Marissa and (now) husband Dave's wedding this past weekend was a resounding success thanks in great part to the banquet and hotel staff at The Dupont Circle, guided by the very able management of David Houde , Director of Catering & Event Sales. David Houde generously provided his time, considerable expertise, and very visible and unwavering support before, leading up to the event, and throughout the weekend. Since this was a destination wedding for a couple who reside away in the NY/NJ area, logistics were more challenging than usual. Most of our guests stayed at the hotel, and everyone was very happy with accommodations, services, and staff attention. The ballroom provided the perfect setting for a 170-guest formal affair, with just the right balance of dance floor, table space, and movement for a fun party. Cocktails were held in a lovely room adjacent to ballroom, with a perfect foyer in between to provide a separate, private party environment for the affair. We also held a brunch in another event room the following morning which wrapped up a perfect weekend for everyone who attended. Thank you from all of us to David Houde and the entire staff at the hotel. We had a perfect wedding to remember for all the years to come.
