Always dreamed of a destination wedding where you tie the knot in historic D.C.? We’re happy to design a wedding that can make that dream come true. Our hotel’s stunning Dolley Madison Ballroom glows with the light of antique chandeliers. Its two levels and dramatic staircase make it the perfect setting for the happy couple to make their big entrance. Our Mt. Vernon Room can accommodate up to 350 guests for a reception and offers great views of downtown. If cocktails on a private terrace with views of the Washington Monument sounds like your ideal reception, consider one of our Presidential suites. They're a fantastic choice for an intimate ceremony. Of course, our staff Wedding Specialists will ensure that every detail of the décor rivals the setting itself—and is executed exactly to your liking.
