SO glad we picked the Westin Georgetown!
My fiancé and I are both so glad that we had our wedding at the Westin Georgetown! We visited many other venues nearby but immediately fell in love with how beautiful the Westin Georgetown was when we first visited!Sent on 07/05/2019
We worked with Rebecca who’s our planner/coordinator - she was very friendly, flexible, and responsive! Every time we visited the venue, the entire staff was friendly as well! It was so nice to be able to host our ceremony, cocktail hour & reception all at one place (bonus: they only do one wedding per night so you get their full service/attention!); it’s also convenient for our out of town guests to be able to stay at the hotel, not to mention it’s in such a great location for guests to enjoy the city!
It was incredibly helpful that the wedding package took care of many aspects of the planning from wedding cake, cake stand, to even table numbers/linens so we didn’t have to worry about them. There are also tons of restaurants nearby which makes it easy to plan rehearsal dinner the night before.
If you’re looking for a stress-free wedding planning process, I’d highly recommend the Westin Georgetown :)
The Westin Georgetown's reply:Thank you so much for the wonderful review Jennifer!! It was truly spectacular working with you! So delighted we could be apart of your special day.

Amazing hidden gem of a venue!
The Westin has one of the few (or maybe the only) hotel ballrooms with hardwood floors in DC instead of conference room carpet and retractable walls. We looked at much more expensive venues (Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, St Regis) and the reception space at the Westin was far and away the prettiest. The others didn’t even compare. The Westin has beautiful hardwood floors, marble columns, and amazing floor to ceiling windows to the courtyard (which is also beautiful). The staff was easy to work with and was super responsive to any questions. We worked with Rebecca and she made our lives so much easier so we could enjoy our big day without worries. Hotels have the added benefit of being mostly all inclusive, which makes planning and budgeting easier than if you have a raw event space — and far less stressful as the bride. We loved the Westin and can’t believe we didn’t know this space existed!Sent on 06/25/2019
The Westin Georgetown's reply:Thank you so much Anna for taking the time to write this review! We appreciate having you as a Westin bride!!

Classic venue that makes planning simple
We loved holding our wedding at the Westin Georgetown. We worked with Rebecca, who quickly answered all our questions leading up to our May wedding and was also our point person for the day of. Thanks to her, the entire day went off without a hitch. When it started pouring during our outdoor ceremony, the staff at the Westin had umbrellas out to our guests within minutes. Beyond the event staff, the hotel staff was lovely as well. The valet helped us load our car up the morning after the wedding which was an unexpected but very much appreciated touch. We were also able to leave decorations in a side room to pick up the next day, allowing us to head to our room stress free once our reception was over. The space is absolutely beautiful. From the ceremony in the beautiful courtyard to the reception in the elegant Promenade with its tall columns, we loved saying "I do" at the Westin. The presidential suite was also perfect for getting ready with my bridesmaids and the natural light from the large windows led to beautiful photos in the bridal suite. Ultimately, we wanted to get married at a hotel because it makes the logistics so much easier. We also got so much included with our venue, making the Westin a great value. Our choice of tablecloths, napkins and chargers, as well as candles on the tables, floating candles down the staircase, the cake platter, cake serving set and card box were all provided by the Westin, making planning so much easier. On top of that, the food is amazing. I can 100% recommend the Westin if you are looking for an elegant hotel that makes planning easy!Sent on 06/20/2019

Perfection in the city. Elegant, understated, everything planned and done right. You will not find a more convenient, magnificent location for a wedding in Washington, DC than at The Westin Georgetown. I love coming here to officiate the ceremony, because everything is carefully planned, well executed, and done to make it look easy ... and to be easy for you. Plenty of room for your guests to wander and mingle. A wonderful outdoor patio, protected from any city noise. Great food. Don't miss this one!
My clients needed to change their venue the week of their wedding do to a water pipe break. The Westin Georgetown SAVED THE WEDDING. They were so accommodating, their staff was wonderful, the venue space was beautiful. I hope to work with them again soon!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Noelle and the rest of the team at The Westin Georgetown. My clients had a lot of moving pieces involving their ceremony and reception. Noelle was extremely flexible and accommodating to their request. I found the team to be pleasant, helpful and courteous. I would recommend this venue to any of my clients in the future.
