    When I first toured the Watergate Hotel, the reception room was filled with boxes; the hotel was undergoing extensive renovations. All I could see were the marble slabs at the front of the room and the beautiful ceiling. But I was hooked, and we reserved a date with the hotel - June 3, 2017. A few months before our wedding, my fiance (at the time) became ill, and after months of doctor's visits and treatment, we weren't sure we could have everything ready by June 3. Everyone at the Watergate was so understanding and we moved the date to September 9, 2017 - just recently! The staff was so friendly and so professional. They were all committed to keeping an open line of communication with me, my now-husband and my family. If we had a question (no matter how silly), they would answer it. They granted almost every single request we had - I say "almost" because the handful (and I mean I think I can count it on one hand) of requests that weren't possible were for reasons completely outside of their control. One of my good friends who used to work weddings said that my wedding at the Watergate was one of the smoothest, effortless, well-planned weddings she had ever experienced from the guest side. I couldn't agree more. It was a beautiful day and one we'll remember for a lifetime!!!

    If I could give 10 stars I would! My Husband and I hosted a cocktail party Labor Day weekend at Kingbird celebrating our elopement. Words cannot describe how pleased I am with the service provided by the Watergate Hotel. I planned the party from Florida and working with Michele Dure-Chavis (Catering Sales Manager) was an effortless experience. Michele, together with Michael Oakes (Banquet Manager) and their team flawlessly took care of every detail. The only thing we had to do on the day of our event was show up and have a good time. And that we did! My guests are still reaching out to me about the wonderful service, delicious food, strong drinks (wink), and exquisite ambiance. I cannot thank this hotel enough for bringing our vision to life and far exceeding our expectations. One word to describe my experience with the Watergate Hotel---perfection. If you're looking for an upscale, modern venue that will have all your guests in awe, this is the place!
