The Perfect Day!!!!
Jane, Emily, Amy and the rest of the team at The George Washington Hotel are the DREAM TEAM!! From start to finish, our experience at the hotel was wonderful. When looking for a venue, we were looking for a location that offered a place for all of our wedding activities in one location, so that our out of town guests did not have far to travel and this hotel did not disappoint! It truly is a one stop shop for the perfect wedding weekend. We were able to host our room block, welcome reception, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all at this beautiful historic venue! The hotel is located in the beautiful downtown area in Winchester, which offered our guests a multitude of dining, restaurant and shopping options all within walking distance of the hotel! Working with Jane on the details for the wedding was so easy! She is always prepared and knowledgeable to answer any questions that you may have as well as willing to offer helpful suggestions along the way! A true gem in the wedding planning industry! She takes care of making sure that you are able to fully enjoy the time leading up to your wedding day and the big day itself by coordinating the details with the hotel and vendors, allowing you to spend time with your family and friends. The George Washington Hotel has truly put the right people in place in order to ensure that your wedding is the day of your dreams and that it comes off flawlessly! I cannot say enough about the care and time that the staff took with each one of my guests to help them navigate the area, provide a seamless check in or serve a fantastic meal. Jennifer our Banquet Manager checked in with us several times during the evening of the wedding to make sure that we were well taken care of and had everything that we needed! They took the time to clean up and set aside all of the elements that we provided for the wedding for easy pick up the following morning, so that it did not take away from our celebrating after the wedding was over. There were no worries or stress when it came to the set up of the ballroom, as the beauty and charm of the hotel and venue truly do shine through, which make it easy to decorate and add your own personal touches to make the space your own! Do yourself a favor and take a look at The George Washington Hotel for your wedding venue, you will not regret it!!!Sent on 11/10/2019

The GW Hotel made planning our wedding so easy!
My fiancé and I just had our wedding at the George Washington hotel and couldn't say better things about the venue, the staff and the planning team. We worked closely with Jane and Amy leading up to the event and we were so impressed with their level of professionalism. We handmade most of our decorations, customized each centerpiece and even set things up a little differently in the ballroom. Even with all of that, the team was great!Sent on 10/15/2019
Also, our guests raved about the food and the location. Weeks later, our guests are still talking about our wedding.
The George Washington Hotel-A Wyndham Grand Hotel's reply:We're thrilled that you had such a wonderful celebration! Thank you for choosing to host your day with us. Best wishes!

The Perfect Rehearsal Dinner
As the Mother of the Bride, I knew we were hosting several dozen out of town guests. We wanted them to have the perfect place to stay during their visit to Winchester. The Parents of the Groom hosted the rehearsal dinner there as well and the whole evening was perfect. Good people who are friendly and professional work here that will attend to every detail for you, from menus to room accomodations, to AV equipment to show pictures, etc.Sent on 10/08/2019
The George Washington Hotel-A Wyndham Grand Hotel's reply:Thank you for sharing their wedding weekend with us! It's an honor to be a part of those special, lasting memories. Best wishes!!

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
