The George Washington Hotel is a hotel wedding venue located in Washington, Pennsylvania. This premier, historic, boutique hotel and venue space dates back to 1922. Architect and designer William Lee Stoddart was the mastermind behind this elegant space. It originally featured a movie theater and theater foyer. Woven throughout its rich history are many notable guests who came to visit, such as Al Capone, Henry Ford, Harry Truman, and Lou Gehrig. Eventually, as the years went on, this venue shifted its focus to strictly being a hotel. Kyrk Pyros, who is the current owner, was the one who meticulously restored it and made it the dazzling wedding venue it is today. Couples will find the hotel ready to host not only their ceremony and reception, but also their bridal shower, engagement party, and rehearsal dinner.

Amazing Experience, Book it!!
I had my wedding at The George Washington Hotel and I really could not be happier. The entire staff at the GW is professional, kind and on point. Lia, the wedding coordinator, is amazing at her job. All throughout the pandemic with changing guidelines and an anxious bride, Lia stayed in constant communication and always had a plan. I seriously don’t know what I would have done without her and Felica’s help. The beauty of the historic hotel speaks for itself. If you want a venue with character, this is it! The food was delicious and service was top notch. I really just can’t say enough about this venue, go see it! It’s a one stop shop, they helped me rent chairs, order linens and had food and a room for available for an after party. Highly recommend!Sent on 02/24/2021

Best day of our lives
We got married at the George Washington on 12/7/19. It truly was the best day of our lives and we have the staff at the George Washington to thank! The venue itself was absolutely gorgeous. Coordinator Lia was always available prior to our wedding for any and all questions and always got back to me so quickly. The day of our event was so wonderful. Lia made sure things went so smoothly and everything went amazing because of her! We got so many compliments from our guests about how impressed they were with all the staff and the venue. Everyone raved over our food, the chef is so talented. We truly had the best day and we are so thankful to the staff at the George Washington! I would recommend this venue to any couple looking to have an amazing wedding.Sent on 12/28/2019

Having our wedding at the George Washington Hotel was so perfect! Lia and the event management/hotel management team were so wonderful and so responsive to work with! The food was fantastic and we have received so many compliments on our food. The unique setting was exactly what we were looking for and was far from the generic hotel ballroom wedding.Sent on 11/12/2019
The George Washington Hotel Price Rates
Very tatseful classic elegance. This Hotel and it's staff were very helpful. I would drive the distance everytime just to be there.
The historic George Washington Hotel which has catered to some of the most prominent dignitaries in the world is a true classic hotel with the charm and beautiful atmosphere of days gone by. One of our assignments was in The Grand Ballroom which is stunning and quite elaborate with the gorgeous chandelier, the classic wooden floor and the abundance of daylight thru the large bay windows. Claire the event co-ordinator and her staff handle every aspect for that special bride. Their personal service is second to none; we definitely would recommend the hotel for that special wedding, reception, party or event in a wonderful environment. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
