    Lovely experience

    We had a wonderful experience with the GW. Kendra is awesome! We had a unique wedding and they were always working something in to make it happen. We hope to never get married again...lol...but we would recommend their services! Prices are very comparable and in some areas much more affordable compared to other venues.

    Refreshing experience rescheduling due to COVID-19

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about the GW! From the moment we decided to reschedule our spring wedding Amy, Jane, and Emily went above and beyond. They were kind, flexible, and demonstrated impeccable customer service. Our experience was so refreshing and for that they have earned a customer for life. I cannot wait to work with them in 2021 to make our dream wedding a reality!

    The George Washington Hotel-A Wyndham Grand Hotel's reply:

    Thank you so much, Kathryn! COVID-19 threw us all - but together we're getting through it. We are excited & grateful to be hosting your (now) 2021 wedding.

I always love when a couple tells me they are holding their wedding at The George Washington Hotel because I know they are going to be absolutely amazed with how perfectly and professionally their wedding plans come to fruition. As a cake artist and wedding cake vendor, I love working with the GW because the entire staff is incredibly friendly, accommodating and eager to lend a helping hand. They are solely focused on making sure your wedding day is amazing and memorable for you and your guests.

The GW Hotel brings to life the class and elegance of the past. The ballroom is beautiful and the courtyard provides a great outdoor option. As a photographer I'm a huge fan of the lounge for photographing the groom and his guys. Most important in my opinion is the staff, energetic and caring; they take a personal interest in every bride making sure everything runs smoothly (it always does by the way). I often get to see what goes on in the "background" and watch as the staff prepares the ballroom for ceremonies/ receptions. They pay attention to the details, I've seen servers walk by a table see that the centerpiece or table number was slightly off center and move it (we're talking an inch or so). If I was getting married I would want the friendly, detail oriented team at the GW Hotel worrying about everything so I wouldn't have to!

The George Washington Hotel in Winchester, Virginia is a top notch venue which caters to the needs of it's clients. I've had the pleasure to enjoy this beautiful establishment many times over the past twenty years. It's always an honor to provide our professional disc jockey services at their hotel for the many brides and grooms who acquire our entertainment for their ceremony and reception. From their top notch staff, to their attention to detail, this is an amazing ballroom which I would highly recommend. Suzi Smith and Jane Obst are courteous, friendly, and always accommodating to their clients. If you are looking for a unique venue for a special event or wedding, the George Washington Hotel is a superb choice. Truly one of the best in Virginia! www.djjeffbaker.com
