The Flying Bridge: what do users think?


Behzad Taimur: They can host your event on their rooftop - Which is just amazing. Spring and onwards, it's a great idea to have an evening event here. From the roof, you get the architecturally breathtaking Union Station right in front of you. You get views of the Capitol Hill and surrounding buildings. It's just a fantastic place to be!

The Tiny Wedding Shop: what do users think?


Kate Brooks: The Tiny Wedding Shop is incredible to work with! Lauren and her team were highly responsive, knowledgeable, and had great attention to detail. They made the entire process effortless and the day of better than we could have hoped. During the ceremony, we didn't have to consider a single thing because the team worked together seamlessly, even when a downpour began. I highly recommend The Tiny Wedding shop if you are planning a smaller wedding in the DC area!
Response: This makes us so happy to read! Thank you, guys! We absolutely loved working with you both!

Allie Thornton: Lauren & the TWS (we worked with Kristen D.) are absolutely phenomenal. We had a bigger-tiny wedding at 50 people and they gave us all the tools to have a successful wedding day. Their vendor relationships were hugely important and they outperformed our expectations. They listened to our priorities and were nimble and able to think creatively about how to accomplish our goals. I never felt that our wedding was less important just because we were a smaller wedding. I cannot recommend them enough.
Response: Ah! This makes us so happy! Thank you, Allie! We loved working with you both!

Kristina Clarin: Lauren & the Tiny Wedding Shop is THE company to work with if you’re considering having a smaller affair for your wedding. Her team was so attentive, so kind, and just overall had it together. I didn’t have to follow up on anything on the day of because they just automatically took care of it. Huge shout out to Kristen (day of coordinator) and Porter (our photographer). They were the absolute sweetest. Kristen was so incredibly organized and Porter was so creative with the shots and backdrops. My husband and I were really stressed about planning a wedding and TWS really helped create the perfect intimate wedding day. The day went exactly as we had hoped and it’s all because Lauren & her team are amazing. I cannot recommend the Tiny Wedding Shop enough. Thank you so much for being part of our day!!
Response: You guys are THE BEST! Thank you so much for this incredibly kind review. We wish the two of you the absolute best!

Caitlin Doyle: The Tiny Wedding Shop is an amazing all service wedding planning group! We could not be more thankful for their partnership in crafting our dream day! Their team is professional, courteous, and made us feel so special and loved. If you are looking for a small scale wedding that doesn’t skimp on big impact, you are in the right place! Thank you to the entire TWS team!!
Response: Thank you so much, Caitlin! You two were an absolute dream to work with!

Katy Oblinger: Lauren and her team were truly a dream. If you are on the fence about this, DO IT. They took care of everything and it was legitimately perfect. The day of, I felt like Lauren was just one of my friends sharing the day with us. We loved everything about the process and how everything turned out and can't say enough great things. Thank you so much Tiny Wedding Shop!
Response: Thank you so much! We loved working with the two of you and wish you the BEST!

Brian: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueThe Tiny Wedding Shop made our wedding an amazing experience. Lauren and her team took all the stress out of the planning and execution, and ensured we had a great ceremony! The day-of went off without a hitch, and the photos turned out better than we could have hoped for!
Response: This is the sweetest note! Thank you so much, Brian! We loved planning your and Laura's Tiny Wedding at Patterson!!

Hannah Mozer: The Tiny Wedding Shop made all my wedding dreams come true during a global pandemic! I am so grateful to Lauren and her team for putting together such a beautiful wedding at the DC War Memorial. The flowers, cake, and photos were incredible. It was so nice to know that everything was planned out and I didn't have to worry about anything on the big day. Thank you SO much to Lauren and TWS for everything! Highly recommend if you are looking for an intimate wedding, beautiful flowers/photos and delicious cake!!
Response: Hannah! We absolutely loved helping you celebrate the big day! You were a STUNNING bride and we were so lucky to work with you!!

Arielle Baquol: Lauren and her team were incredible! Every detail of our wedding day was thoughtfully and professionally done. One of the best things was feeling like I could still have the full wedding experience, even with a small wedding, without the high price. The pressure was taken off me to be the point person for flowers, cake, and photography so all I needed to focus on was getting married. If you are looking to have a small wedding but still have the full wedding experience, I highly recommend the Tiny Wedding Shop!
Response: Thank you so much, Arielle! We absolutely loved working with you.

Ashley Ruskey: Lauren is AMAZING! Her whole staff is. She was responsive and kind. Super professional. She made my wedding dreams come true. She coordinated with all of our vendors and planned everything. Her entire team is insanely talented. From the florist, baker, officiant, assistant, makeup artist and hair stylist, I didn’t worry or stress one bit. 10/10 highly recommend. I will continue to rave about this experience and Lauren’s team. Love you all!!
Response: We absolutely loved working with you and Ian! 🖤 You two are the loveliest and our team wishes you nothing but the best!

Ellie Musson: I can't praise this company and team of individuals enough! The amount of personal time, energy, and creativity that is brought into the passion at the Tiny Wedding Shop is amazing. Whether your big event plans change, or you are dreaming of a unique intimate celebration, the incredible team at the Tiny Wedding Shop will give every couple a tremendous amount of joy and dedication. Their inclusivity and intentional vendor teams make the experience unlike any other. This company not only creates beautiful events, but the people have such beautiful hearts! We are so lucky we have them in our corner!

Fathom Gallery 14th Street: what do users think?


Tiffiney Carney: Highly recommend this venue! My wife and I got married at Fathom last weekend. The venue is perfect for small to medium size weddings. We had a total of 38 guests, and held the ceremony and dinner outside (3 long tables in the areas between the skylights). It was beautiful. The Fathom team is also great. They are quick to respond to emails, and they’re all very positive. The week before the wedding, it looked like it was going to rain, so we used their two white tents outside. They looked great and didn’t detract from the experience at all. (And it didn’t rain).

Jack Sykstus: Got married here. Fantastic place from the coordinators to the space. Couldn’t recommend it more. Great space for small to medium sized weddings. Just a lovely space. They have a nice indoor and outdoor area as well to mix and match scenery as well.

Cassi Townes: Please do not waste my time letting me know to arrive BY 1pm if you’re not going to allow me into the venue at 1pm to view the place. I was told that as long as I arrive by 1pm I would be able to view the place. Unbeknownst to me, Emily had a phone call at 1pm so she didn’t let me in the place to view. I drove 50 minutes through traffic just for her to play with my time like it was useless.

Makenzie Delmotte: Fathom was the perfect space for my 30th birthday celebration with about 40 friends. I am a professional events manager and wedding coordinator, so I have been in LOTS of different DC venues. Feathom is gorgeous and requires almost nothing at all to make it shine. Inside, the brick walls, sleek lounge furniture, professional lighting and big windows make the space feel chic and open. The rooftop is unmatched. Big boxwoods, string lights, flower boxes, professional sound system to set the vibe- it is perfection. My guests were absolutely blown away by every detail and shared that they, too, will soon be hosting their celebrations with Fathom. The space is designed for parties so the planning process is turnkey. They include printing of whatever photos you'd like for the gallery frames and ghost mirror, you simply share the files ahead. Their sound system is wired to have different sound levels in every room (including outside) and it's all easily controlled on an Ipad. You just share a public spotify playlist- could not be easier. There's a fun white board wall for which they provide colorful markers. Their team keeps the bulding clean and organized, and because they host so many events- they have small things you may have forgotten and are generous with offering them to you in a pinch. Emily and Grace are incredible to work with. They make the process easy, providing everything you need right from the start so there are no surprises or stresses in the planning. Ramiro worked our event and was exemplary- going above and beyond with set up, bar service, and break down. Plus, the owners are deeply charitable and support various non-profits in DC. It feels great knowing that a space this lovely is run by such lovely folx.

James Gimbert: My guests were thrilled with the space. The Fathom team's knowledge and relationships with local caterers made getting the party ready to go a breeze. I would highly recommend using the Fathom Gallery for your next event.

Pretty Pine: We used Fathom Gallery as a wedding venue. The place was great. It was spacious and allowed for social distancing both inside and in the garden. They provided staff to help us with decor set up and a bartender (for free). They were very responsive and helpful through the planning process. We recommend the Gallery for any event.

Janelle J. Jordan: Very cute venue. Parking is a major issue though, but f you live in the city and can walk there, no problem.

Diego Chojkier: Gorgeous space hiding on 14th street. Great for holding any kind of event (spoiled by Google). The indoor area is spacious, complete with bathroom and kitchen, but the winner is definitely the huge outdoor patio. Quiet, sunny and perfect.

Nicholas Sammons: Fathom Creative's gallery seemed like a great venue for small to mid size social functions. Nice patio area.

Elle Sojourner: Elegant venue. Excellent management. I enjoyed a lovely, intimate wedding here.

The Capitol View at 400: what do users think?


Remembered Events: We just had a fabulous wedding at this venue. The view is beautiful. They have a parking garage underneath the building and you do have to go through the lobby of the new stations to get to the reception spot but well worth it. We had around 100 people which fit the space perfectly. Delmy the venue coordinator is so wonderful to work with. The space offers multiple options for your cocktail hour set up. The restrooms are far from the space just something to be aware of. I would suggest making signs it is downstairs or have a designated person showing guests where to go (this was something our planning team did).

Colby Shomaker: This place has great views of union station and the capital. Not the best location and set up to host an event but overall it’s ok.

Michelle with Lieb Photographic: I HIGHLY recommend The Capitol View at 400 for your wedding day! You get so much more here than most DC venues. A longer day, a wider space, a spectacular view AND staff that go above and beyond to make your day incredibly special! It's the perfect location for a fine art DC wedding!

ALANA VAUGHN: What an amazing venue to have any event. It felt like you were on the deck of a cruise ship with the beautiful black drop of the Capitol in the background. It was open air... it was beautiful but when it started to drizzle there was a beautiful canopy that still allowed you to enjoy the beautiful view.

Travis Hyams: We had our wedding of about 100 guests at Capitol View. Our experience was amazing, and we would recommend the venue to anybody that is planning their next event. The view speaks for itself. So, if you are on the fence, just go see the place. Delmy the venue coordinator is a true champion. She is experienced, organized, well-connected, and when the anxiety of planning an event becomes too stressful, she draws on all of these to keep you calm and make sure things go as planned. The day of went off without a hitch and our guests continue to rave about our event! Delmy handled all the décor and the venue looked truly stunning. We hope others get to experience how truly magical Capitol View is!

Kiedra E.: Unfortunately this rating comes from an inability to receive a date to even view the venue. We absolutely adored the space from what we saw online. I reached out to the venue the beginning of January and received little correspondence and after confirming a date finally but, not a time , I waited over a month for a time confirmation email that was promised and never came.This was extremely disappointing. I’m not sure why we weren’t valued or given the usual business etiquette or decency many others have in the past from the reviews I read but, I hope that this experience is isolated and not common practice of this venue.

andrew strycker: I was here for a conference dinner on the rooftop. The food was lackluster and ran out multiple times. the event was by reservation only so it was not as if Capitol View had no idea on how many patrons to expect. The two bars that were on the rooftop were cash only and hard to navigate towards. The bathrooms were also located a fair distance away. After a bit of socializing (like an hour), many of my peers decided to go to another venue.

Katie Hensel: Delmy is a true professional. She manages Capitol View with such grace and patience. When we first looked at the venue, we just knew it was the one. It had that "It" factor we were looking for. We looked at over 20 venues just in DC, including converted yoga studios, hotels, museums and art galleries. The roof of Capitol View, with the air conditioned pavilion and breathtaking views is just in a different league than the other places we explored. Leading up to the wedding, in the year of planning, Delmy was always so quick to reply to our emails and give us helpful tips throughout the process. She encouraged us to come to the venue multiple times to get ideas for our big day and took extra time for our final walk through to ensure everything ran smoothly day of. For the few days leading up to the wedding, Delmy had such patience with us as we made multiple trips to her office to drop off the alcohol, centerpieces, guest books and decorations. We didn't hire a day of coordinator and honestly, we didn't need one with Delmy and her team on site. She ensured everything ran smoothly and checked in with me and my husband multiple times to make sure we were happy and healthy! To put it simply, Delmy knows what she's doing and she does it so well. She brings years of experience which makes her brides at ease and focused on what's important on the wedding day!

Michael Gerardi: Great venue for people who are political advocates and/or patriots

Megan Muñoz: Delmy was very nice but myself and other guests could over see and hear her being unfriendly to the staff and taking down about the wedding party. Otherwise fantastic venue and a wonderful time.

Josephine Butler Parks Center: what do users think?


Liza Greenberg: We checked out multiple venues in DC, but none captured the vision we had for our October 19, 2019 wedding like the Josephine Butler Parks Center. The space is beautiful enough to not need too much decoration but simple enough to be a blank canvas if you wanted to go big. We had 120 guests and it felt both spacious and intimate. Malina was very informative and helpful and has done the wedding rodeo enough times to have answers to every question we threw at her. And we felt especially great about using the Center because we knew we were supporting the Washington Parks!

Joseph Ortega: A classy and elegant old venue in the heart of the city. Spacious and full of rich historical ties to the city.

Aaron Hedquist: I’ve photographed several weddings at the PARKS CENTER. Every time, the venue is well organized, plenty of room for vendors, and the guest seem to really enjoy the multi-level space. You also won’t be able to beat the access to one of the largest (and best) parks in DC. PLUS, the building is run by a local non-profit so a portion of the proceeds go back to doing great work here in DC. If your thinking about having a wedding, corporate, or family event, definitely check-out the JOSEPHINE BUTLER PARKS CENTER.

Jeffrey Harris: Fun event space. Been there for wedding and fundraising/social event. Lovely.

Darrell Grymes: Went there to help with the up keep of My Great Aunt Josephine Center by Malcolm X Park Saturday with my Cousin Kara and Her Son's Justin and Keenan 🙏🏾

Audrey Link: Attended a couple of wedding parties here. Fairly well maintained historic home. Nice staircase in the foyer which is a good spot for photos. There is a balcony (might hold 30)which is a nice place for cocktails in nice weather. There was more than enough room in the dining area for the 150 or so in attendance at the last party. There are 2 kitchens, an upstairs which is a decent size and a much smaller one on the lower level. This provides a lot of room for prep and the fridges help with the cooling of your beverages so not everything has to be chilled on ice. Parking is a little difficult because of the location, but the same can be said for all places in that vicinity. Overall a very quaint location for your event.

Andrew Breza: A charming and historic event spacelocated next to Meridian Hill Park

M U K T I . D E S A I: I had my wedding here in September of 2014 and it was absolutely perfect! The space is gorgeous and we knew the venue was for us the moment we saw it. We had just under 150 people and the space was perfect. Dinner was a little cramped, but other than that the space was perfect. We were lucky and had amazing weather so we are also able to make great use of the terrace. This is the perfect place for someone wanting a DC wedding at a reasonable price. The photo opps are also amazing and if you are lucky and get good weather, the park is so close and makes for great photos as well.

Erin R: Went here for a gala. A historic venue that is perfect for a small to medium sized corporate or personal event! Two stories we’d open for us to gather in. The staircase is beautiful!

Amy Molatto: It's a beautiful venue space with a lot of flexibility especially for a smaller group. It also hosts fun community activities like swing dance and exercise classes.

Larz Anderson House: what do users think?


Kaitlyn Cole: Walking into the Anderson House will take your breath away. This building exudes an unparalleled feeling of opulence and historic charm. Surrounded by the grand chandeliers, marble staircase, monumental ornate frames and reflecting pool, you will feel like royalty everywhere you turn. Every corner of this exquisite wedding venue makes for a perfect photo background.

rachel robertello: Super interesting museum that works as an AMAZING wedding venue. The team is very responsive and works smoothly with all vendors to make the day run perfectly. We are so glad we found the Anderson House as an option for our wedding and that they were available.

Trevor Joyce: The Anderson House museum is one of my favorite museums in D.C. It is quiet yet packed with so many beautiful architectural details. It consists mostly of several large rooms but the entire left wing of the building is for private use and is thus not open to public visitors. The guided tours are time efficient and professional but I find it best to visit when they host events and musical performances.

Klaire Dixius: As a wedding photographer, Larz Anderson House served as a stunning backdrop for our couple's wedding. Highly recommend!

Kyla Jeanette: Anderson House hosted my wedding on New Years Eve and I must say it was the most mind-blowing experience I could have imagined. Glenn was so accommodating and always so happy to help us. The day of the wedding, he had a way of making you feel like you were the only bride in the world. The venue itself is incredibly photogenic & historical. It felt as though we were welcomed in someone's home. It truly is a magnificent experience and I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone to host your wedding at this venue. Thank you Glenn and the team at Anderson House. You made our dreams come true, in such a special and memorable way.

Olga Crawford: The tour of the house is superb. The house looks like the Breakers.

Austin Graff: The Anderson House is a 1905 mansion in Dupont Circle once owned by Larz and Isabel Anderson. Larz married into Isabel's wealth and together they built this house as their D.C. home. When Larz left Isabel a widow in 1938, she gave the house (with everything inside) to the Society of the Cincinnati, the oldest patriotic society in the country. Today the society keeps the mansion open for free tours and houses the Revolutionary War Institute, a research center. Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-4pm, free tours are offered by the docents. The tour lasts a little over an hour and you'll get to walk through most of the mansion (it's the only way to see the rooms). You'll hear about how the Society was started by soldiers of the Revolutionary War tasked with keeping freedom alive and taking care of the war's widows and orphans. You'll hear how current membership works, George Washington's involvement, and a lot about Larz Anderson, a Society member, and his wife. The house itself is huge and was cutting edge for its day with electricity and modern heating. The bottom floor has a large hall for entertaining, the library, an outdoor courtyard, and several other rooms. Upstairs has the dining room, entertaining rooms, and a giant hallway. The third floor is not open for tours, but houses thirteen guest rooms for members of the Society. The mansion is decorated with historic art and statues from the Anderson's extensive travels. The Anderson House does have a small museum on the bottom floor and the space is used for events like weddings.

Robert Brown: We attended my nephew's Wedding there. Elegant, historically significant, entirely unique and very special place.

Daniel Sweeney: Beautiful Washington DC Historic site. Very unique and pretty rooms. Outdoor space is great for events. Wedding here was great, and they hosted well.

Kelly Mattesen: Very impressive mansion! Our tour guide Stacia was amazing, funny and very knowledgeable. When this museum opens you should not miss it on your next trip! It is a hidden gem...and it is free!

Dumbarton House: what do users think?


Elise F.: Very nice historic site and interiors. Small parking lot a plus for visitors. But many steps up to the site.

Skye Brockman: Stunning Georgetown venue. I am a photographer who found their staff to be great and the entire place to be picture perfect.

Austin Graff: Dumbarton House is a historic house in Georgetown built in 1800 when the federal government was in Philadelphia and not D.C. It was a private residence until 1928 when it became the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America HQ. Four years later, they opened a house museum inside. They offer tours for $10 and it takes you through the house museum on the ground floor and the exhibit on the second floor, which rotates every six months. There's also a large garden on the property as well. Dumbarton House also hosts some of the most unique events in the city- 1) The Dumbarton House in Georgetown hosts some of the most unique events in the city- 1) Jane Austen movie nights on July Wednesdays in the garden, 2) Ice cream making on the lawn in honor of First Lady Dolley Madison, 3) Afternoon tea for families, and 4) Chamber music concerts. If you love events and history, it's worth a visit. The staff are also very friendly and very knowledgeable about D.C. and the museum industry.

Byus Mommie: Went for a free concert night. Don't explore anything but they have nice little lawn..

Bob Lavelle: Great architecture of the Federalist period. Also historical cemeteries nearby, worth exploring as well.

Mike Wehrman: Interesting history & loved the story of how women led preservation efforts. Not slot to see, but worth an hour or so of time.

Arianne Mix: My party payed $10 each for a self-guided tour. Much of the museum was closed off and, although there were some interesting rooms (I think there were three in total), the entire experience was very underwhelming. I love this sort of thing and so have gone to a lot of similar places, and this simply was not well done. If it were free I would give it a better review, but paying $10 for it was ridiculous. Would not suggest.

Martin Reyes: Very elegant great 4 wedding anniversary special events we highly recommend this for your next celebration

Nicolás Arango Vergara: Not fun at all, the experience is just one bedroom, some information, and that is the end of the tour, for 10 bucks each person, it's a scam, and do not recommend, unless you like the person

Amos Cheeseboro: To be honest, I was working there as a banquet server for a wedding reception. But the house was amazingly beautiful! I recommend people to visit.

Mark Vallaster: View is fantastic. Food is good but slow

C F: This venue is absolutely stunning. It’s been several months after our wedding and we consistently still have guests telling us how beautiful our ceremony venue was. It has a breathtaking view of the Capitol and is extremely well maintained. We fit our 160 wedding guests under the provided tents for our ceremony with room to spare. Suzanne and the entire staff were a delight to work with and they really saved the day by accommodating us by scheduling a tour and our event very quickly after having our original venue cancel only 5-weeks before the big day.

Kimberly Kruse: Gorgeous views

Bellwether Events: what do users think?


Hannah Kotler: Janice was absolutely incredible to work with for our wedding. My husband and I were crushed when we had to move our wedding back due to COVID, but Janice made the process SO smooth- she coordinated with all of our vendors and had new contracts in our inbox without us having to worry. We had the pleasure of working with Janice and her team for over two years due to our postponement. Janice is organized, practical, down to earth, and knew exactly how to make our wedding vision happen. We would recommend her without hesitation to anyone planning a wedding- and highly suggest a full planning package, she is absolutely worth it.

Yasmin Howell: We started working with Janice in 2019 to help with planning our wedding that was due to happen 4 months from initially speaking with her. Despite the short timeline, Janice helped us figure out our vision for the day and bring it to life; by March 2020, everything was planned and ready to go. When Covid hit and restrictions were put in place, Janice single-handedly managed the rescheduling of our wedding 3 separate times over 2 years. We would have been lost and incredibly stressed without her ongoing support. When it finally came, our wedding day ran flawlessly thanks to Janice’s expertise and organization. We would definitely recommend Janice if you want an expert wedding planner who has great connections with amazing vendors.

Dylan Isenberg: Janice helped us plan our covid-delayed wedding not one time, not two times, not three times but four separate times over the span of nearly 1000 days. Without her, we would have been lost, overwhelmed and alone. During an unprecedented time for the wedding industry, she competently answered every single one of our questions and never once led us astray. She quickly got a sense of our styles and flawlessly guided us through many difficult decisions. On the big day, she was in complete control of all the scheduled events, managing everything from ensuring our doggo had the right flowers on her collar, to organizing the numerous vendors, to adorning our cake that required a final touch up! We had the day of our dreams and have Janice to thank for making it happen. We cannot recommend her enough. She is organized, knowledgeable and most importantly a lot of fun to work with!
Response: Dylan, thank you for your kind words! You and M made it so easy to work by your side for all that time! I'm so glad you finally got the party you deserved! xoxo

Jonathan Sutton: My wife and I absolutely loved working with Janice and her team at Bellwether Events. We hired Bellwether Events to be our event coordinator and our only wedding regret is not hiring them to do our full wedding planning. Janice’s attention to detail saved the day on multiple occasions. Her extensive knowledge of the DC wedding industry was so helpful for us during the entire process. Her team made it so we could fully relax and enjoy our wedding day. The day was perfect and it is in huge part to Janice and her team.
Response: Jon - and we loved working with you and Mary! The photos are stunning, I love the chairs you picked out, and I can't wait to see more!

Conor Noonan: We brought on Janice to be our planner about 8 months ahead of our wedding (after trying to go it alone). She was incredibly helpful with getting us back on schedule and helping us find additional vendors. She gave us honest advice and knew what kinds of personalities would work well with us. I give her extra credit for finding a wonderful bag piper for our ceremony. The Bellwether team on the day-of was also incredible - they were attentive, prompt, and kept the show running on time!
Response: Conor, I am so grateful for your review! And I'm so glad that the bagpiper turned out so perfectly! Keep in touch!

Courtney S.: I have had the pleasure of working an Assistant/Partner with Janice for well over 10 years now. She is the consummate professional - always seeking win-win solutions for her clients and team, is detailed, thorough and has superior knowledge of the DC Events industry. I've hired her for my own brother's wedding and would trust only her with any of my future events.

Lauren Inouye: Janice stands and delivers! We worked with Janice over the course of 8 months. When we first signed on, we had our venue and date selected, and had narrowed down our catering optinons. However, we were a tad overwhelmed with selecting our other vendors. Janice's extensive professional network gave us a variety of top-notch vendors (stationary, DJ, bagpiper, photographer) to choose from, all of whom knocked it out of the park. Her instincts are spot-on when it comes to both logistics and style. She is transparent, responsive, and flexible. What we appreciate about her is that she advocates for your vision without being a "yes-woman." Work with Janice and you'll sleep easier at night!
Response: Lauren, thank you for your kind words. It was such a pleasure to work with you and your family. I'm so glad that you are so happy with your wedding day, and that you slept well at night - that means everything to me.

Debra Kaplan: At the end of my daughter's wedding I turned to Janice and said "it was perfect!" She flawlessly executed my daughter and her fiance's dream wedding during covid, when the betrothed couple was on the other side of the country, through a venue change and then a date change. Janice caught every curve ball possible during a challenging time with poise and professionalism. She connected them with amazing vendors -- including the caterer, venue, decor, band, florist, stationary designer, cake baker, photographer and officiant. She went to bat for the engaged couple and provided ongoing counsel throughout the 18-month planning process. I highly recommend Janice if you want someone who listens, has deep connections in the industry and gets the job done.
Response: Thank you, so much, Debbie, for your kind words. They truly mean the world to me, and I am over the moon that you all are so pleased with how the planning went and how the wedding day turned out :-) xoxo

Ryan Gallagher: Janice is an amazing wedding planner and we were very lucky to have had her as our month of planner. We would have definitely benefitted from using her through the whole process, and if we were to do this again we would hire her for the entire wedding planning and preparation period. Since we were planning the wedding from overseas, Janice really enabled us to have the wedding we always dreamed of with as little stress as possible. She was on top of every detail leading up to the wedding and also provided thoughtful advice throughout the process, she even procured our wedding license for us since we couldn’t be there ahead of time to apply ourselves. She also expertly coordinated and communicated with all of our different vendors. She was a calming influence both leading up to the wedding and during the big day since we knew she would be able to handle any curve balls. Janice allowed my wife and I to completely focus on and enjoy our big day without distraction! I would absolutely recommend her to any friends and family as well as anyone in the DMV area.

Dock5: what do users think?


Narda Nardis: Amazing venue! Great location

Greg Reese: Great place for an event! The event I attended was awesome! Although, I have a bitter sweet thought process about this place because I left my new Canon battery and charger which cost me about $140. I tried to reach out to the staff, but there was no contact as of yet. Overall it's a great place to attend! Mid-October 2018 I have an update to this review! I received my Canon battery and charger back! So not only was this a great venue, but the staff and promoters were responsive to my messages! Which saved me time and money! There were hundreds, maybe even one thousand people that attended that event that Saturday. The office was closed on Monday and I did not really expect to get my equipment back. This really helped me restore faith in people! People are good! and the staff and management at Dock5 are great! I created an issue for my company and they solved it by just giving great service to their vendors, clients and customers! Thank You to the staff and management at Dock5, I appreciate you and your vision for entertainment in this city!! I hope to visit and enjoy your venue again in the near future!

Keshia Roberson: This is a multi purpose space. I've been to two totally different types of events and both times the bathroom was spotless! (That includes being there for a wine and spirits fest...the bathroom could've been a nightmare and it wasn't! #winning) Kudos to the staff for keeping the place clean and to the two events I've been to for picking a really great space.

Frank Mikolajczak: Nice venue. There is not much draw here other than the open canvas and your vision. The scenery is not beautiful or amazing but it allows for a nice city comfort feeling that is hip and trendy. You can really decorate or create whatever environment you want inside the space that offers plenty of room. There is a good Instagram wall around the building for pictures also.

Dru Crawley: Fun event venue, indoor, covered outdoor space. Great for parties

Valerie Chandler: Terrible event! I was invited to The 2nd annual DC Brunch Festival on Dock 5 and it was the pits!!! It was more like a Sardines festival. It was packed, hard to walk around, lines everywhere, plenty drinks and very little food!!! The free glass was dirty and plastic! Parking a logistical nightmare. I had to go next door and pay to eat! This event is for the easily duped!!!

Chris B: Had a fun time here for the Veil pop up event by the Bruery Store DC. It's basically a warehouse space for events. The first time you go there you'll wonder if it is the right place because the entrance is on the back side of Union Market where all the big trucks unload.

K Allen: Basically, a loading dock with all of the wonderful acoustics of a loading dock. The view out the garage style doors is of a deteriorating warehouse with an old diner propped up on timbers that looks like it will fall over any second. Since it is all concrete, steel and glass, just add in a blaring sound system and you have all of the great ingredients for a wonderful evening at this venue. Not.

Amelia and Kelsey: The staff at Dock 5 is incredibly accommodating and helpful when planning the perfect event in their space. We always appreciate their flexibility and the versatility of the space. It will always be one of our favorite event venues in DC.

E Hay (ehay2k): Cool vibe in a hidden gem. There is good food available including some of the best smoked and/or cured salmon I've ever had (and I smoke and cure my own.) Lots of food vendors make this a place worth going back to.

The LINE DC: what do users think?


Corry: We stayed at The Line for three nights and I wish we could have stayed longer! Prior to our arrival the front desk staff were friendly and helpful on the phone with fantastic dinner suggestions and tips for getting around via public transit. We arrived early and were expecting to leave our bags at the front desk but the employee was very accommodating and checked us in. The room was lovely. Incredibly clean bathroom and bedroom, a beautiful view, comfortable bed, and very quiet. We enjoyed downtime either at the rooftop mini bar at night watching planes fly in to Reagan air port or during the day on the patio out front of the hotel. Truly a beautiful hotel and spectacular staff. 10/10 would recommend!!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words as well as your rating! Please come back and see us again soon!

Marshall Daly: Superb location, and very cool building. Rooms are good — certainly better & more unique than a chain hotel, but nothing fancy. Service, however, was very disappointing for this price point. Called room service for an extra set of utensils... never delivered. Front desk called with a non-urgent questions at ~11pm on Friday night, then accidentally called my room at ~6am the following Saturday morning... ouch. Finally, tried to check out the hotel's rooftop bar and later, the "included" rental bikes... only to find out that roof was not open to guests and the bikes were not available. All told, great location and cool architecture, but for this price the service & amenities left a lot to be desired. Hopefully they can improve, it's great having a hotel option in such an excellent location!
Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Sorry for your experience. I am having trouble finding your reservation. Please reach out to me here at the hotel so we can discuss this matter.

Mollie Young: Everything about our experience was incredible. The staff is warm and hospitable, the room was spacious and tasteful (with great city views), and the amenities cannot be beat! We were so excited to use the gym and couldn’t get over equipment options — there’s something for everyone! The hotel restaurant, No Goodbyes, is also a must. The service is excellent and the food is fantastic. Definitely have a cocktail at the bar before or after dinner and check out the coffee shop the next morning. Everything about our stay was wonderful, and we are already planning our return visit!
Response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm forwarding it to the team as we speak! Don't be a stranger!

Sara Urtz: Our stay was okay, not great. For the price, I was expecting great. There’s nothing really special about this hotel. There was no fridge to keep waters we brought in (besides the minibar which was full of drinks to buy) and the curtains are paper thin, letting in so much light it was hard to sleep. Great location and staff was friendly, but nothing special besides that.
Response: Hey Sara! I'm sorry you didn't have the experience you would've like or got to use the black out shades that are in every room. The chain to use them is low profile and on the sides of the windows behind the curtains. Come back and see us again and we will ben more than happy to have them drawn upon arrival! And feel free to move anything you'd like from the mini bar for your personal use. We have no problem with that. Have a great day.

Dj Theo: Fantastic hotel located in Adams Morgan. Valet parking. The staff was amazing and helpful the whole time. This building used to be church, now it's a fabulous concept hotel w a unique style. Check out the rooftop terrace! Great views of Washington DC! Food is locally sourced and was deliciously served every day. Thank you for a great experience @ The Line Hotel DC !
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words as well as your rating! Come back and see us again soon!

Anna Ponamarchuk: Hotel is amazingly beautiful! It looks like Spanish parlament house from outside and it looks like a design studio from incite! So beautiful! Sweet Rachel was there the the mornings both days I was staying. She rescued my life with all the printing for my embassy apartment. She was kind, bubbly, and so helpful! I have a hotel my self and would definitely love to work with her! Kenny helped me on the phone after I checked out. These guys are great! They complete my wonderful stay in The Line DC Definitely recommend and will come back!
Response: WOW! This truly mad my day! Rachel is the best partner a guy could hope for. Thank you so much for your kind words! Kenny

Kevin Shim: Staff is friendly. Location is good. Room was decent. The Line DC has everything that typically comes with a 5-star hotel. A restaurant, a gym, conference rooms, and valet parking. The hotel entrance is on the side of the building! Keep in mind that valet parking is going to be $59 per night, which may be worth it since it’s difficult to street park in DC. Due to zoning laws, you’ll only be able to street park for 2-3 hours at most unless you have a resident sticker. The area (it’s called Adams Morgan) has a variety of food options, and generally safe to go out at night. At the time of this writing (early 2022), there was a noticeable homeless presence on the streets of DC. Most are harmless and will leave you alone. The hotel room is decent. The sink water gets scaldingly hot, which you may or may not like. The shower head has strong pressure, so the water will give you a massage. Some of the furnishings in the room seem cheaply done. For example, the power cord for the free standing lamp is fixed onto the wall with some cheap plastic. Some of these fixtures were coming off the wall when I was there. Overall, decent 5-star hotel. Nothing extraordinary.
Response: Thank you for such a thorough and well thought out review of the hotel. I will forward it to the entire team so we can turn that 3 star into a 5 star next time! Have a great day!

Syed Ahmed Ullah: Amazing experience. The view from the roof top is just amazing. We had our company dinner hosted at the location and the service alongside the food quality was amazing. They also served halal food to cater our needs and there's was a non alcoholic cocktail bar as well. Wonderful experience!!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words as well as your rating! Come back and see us again soon!

Greg: Great experience overall. Much like everything else in DC though, the location makes my head spin. Plus there's no on-site parking...but it's d.c. so, that's expected really. Great stay. The bed and pillows PLUS THE SOAP! The soap and shampoo was just crazy good.
Response: Thank you for your kind words as well as your rating. Let us know the next time you head this way and you can try the on-site valet parking!

photog1976: One of the worst restaurant experiences ever. Our waiter forgot dishes and then forgot again for another 25min once reminded and chose to blame the kitchen staff rather than seeking to resolve the situation and make a simple apology. He then slammed down the plates when serving, gave our family the stink eye and walked off without saying a word. We made sure to be polite and respectful the whole time, but this place is just full of staff who think they’re too good for their job. Food was nothing to write home about. Was much better with previous owners.
Response: I'm sorry for your experience at the restaurant, which is surprising considering how many great reviews they receive. Please reach out to us directly at the restaurant so we can discuss the matter in further detail. Thank you.

District Winery: what do users think?


Josh Griff: Had the dessert wine and grilled cheese. The grilled cheese had tomato jam which was sweet and tasty. The dessert wine was crisp and not too overly sweet. We sat at the bar and were served fairly quick and was a nice snack before the Nationals game. There was a wedding and a bridal shower going on at the same time while we were there too.
Response: Josh - thank you for the positive feedback! We also love the grilled cheese!! We hope to see you again soon - Cheers!!

Fatima D: This is one of our favorite spots in the Navy Yard area. We have been frequenting this restaurant since they've opened. Unfortunately they're not as good as they used to be and it seems that their menu has gotten progressively worse. Their food is not exciting. Brunch options were very limited and there was a very little variety in the menu. But otherwise most of the things we got were good and tasty (the Brussels sprout was a disappotintment as some of it were overcooked.) Also, we would have ordered more if there were healthier options for brunch. We decided to go for desserts elsewhere. The ambiance and outdoor seating is very nice though. The food came around quickly but the waiteress that served us was so slow we wished we got out of the restaurant faster. Beware that navy yard is a very congested area and parking is not easy to find. There's a parking spot behind the restaurant but its constantly full so I wouldn't bank on it especially if there is a wedding or reception in the restaurant's upper floors. Just plan your trip a bit better with ample time for parking or Uber to the location!
Response: Hi Fatima- Thank you for taking the time to write us your feedback. We value our customers and strive to get better. As you know covid has greatly effected the world and we are doing everything we can to keep our customers happy and provide top quality and service. As a valued regular, I hope that you will come back to join us again soon.

Kimberly Humphries: Excellent customer service thank you Terry and Lauren. Let me start off by saying this place is clean, classy, and has an amazing Ambience. I am a person who appreciates a good wine. Lauren was our host for the tour she explained in detail about the different wines so that you will get a clear understanding of how to pick your wine choices. This place is inexpensive and everyone is welcome. Everyone was dressed very tasteful and professional. They offer different packages that are all great. I’m so glad I got to experience a wine tasting in the city which gave me so much knowledge and education. Pay to park is available right next to the winery. They are close to the water front, you can walk and enjoy after the tasting and get a beautiful view of the city. There are so many nice shops and restaurants near by. For people who can not go to a winery far away. This place is truly a jewel.
Response: Kimberly - thank you for the lovely review!! Both Terri and Lauren are valuable members of our staff and I will be sure to pass along your kind words! We are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your experience yesterday and we hope to see you again soon. Cheers!

Kheyanna Suarez: The menu did not really appeal to my taste buds that day since I was hungry and wanted a hearty meal. But I enjoyed the happy hour glasses of wine which were $7 each. Our server, Steve, was wonderful and we had an amazing view of the water. They had some interesting wine flights + small plates for two deals on the happy hour menu that I would like to try. We just couldn’t decide on 3 different small plates since only 1 of them appealed to us. Maybe on another trip I’ll get a chance to experience their flights.
Response: Hi Kheyanna, thank you so much for the review and feedback. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit overall and will definitely pass along your comments! Cheers!

Daniel Thomas: First off, District Winery is a showcase of modern 2010s design - steel/glass plate windows from floor to ceiling/clean design/quirky modern art on the walls. I mean this as a compliment - it is light and airy as a result with a self assured air. The service was fantastic - from the front staff to our waiter Xavier. We ordered the flights and bites: the fried Brussels sprouts, the curried cauliflower, and the grilled cheese. As you can see, the food is very well presented. It is essentially basics elevated by presentation. A buttered grilled cheese with tomato, cheese, basil (essentially a pizza in sandwich form), the Brussels sprouts were well done and tasty, although I could have appreciated some more kick/tang - little dry. The cauliflower was also a little dry and not particularly “curried” although the cornbread with chutney was a nice counterpoint. It just was a little bland. As for the wines, I found them to be fairly one-note - these are on the dry and light side. This is more a personal preference - I prefer less dry, full bodied wines. Having said that, this would be a great place to go for a happy hour - the location in the Navy Yard overlooking the water is gorgeous. This is a place I would return to to socialize, but I think the food doesn’t quite compete with the area’s other options.

Miss Powell: I'm not vegan but my partner is and there were a number of options that we both enjoyed. The vegan grazing selection, olives, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower dished were amazing and more. Ample serving size and truly delicious with the wine. Meredith our server was excellent. We will be returning...soon. Thanking the chef, manger and wait staff for a wonderful dining experience.

Noa Vermaak: Our waitress Alexandra (Alex) today was amazing! She was super kind/funny and attentive. we ordered 2 Rosé, but after we ordered it we figured a bottle would be better. She left one full glas for me to taste and just brought the bottle. No extra charges! Those are the little things a guest will remember. The food here is also amazing and so was our wine. Can’t wait to go back and enjoy a sunny afternoon at District Winery

Parker Kelley: Great food & atmosphere! We made a reservation on a Friday at 7:00. We arrived and were immediately seated. Our amazing server Morgan took great care of us & recommend great drinks. For starters we got the chicken bites (must try) and the brussel sprouts ! The surrounding area was very busy & finding parking was a challenge.
Response: Hi Parker, thank you so much for your review! We’re so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! We hope to see you again soon! Cheers!

Marie Pierce: I would totally recommend the date night for two. The entire staff was so nice. We had so much fun with our wine guide Laura and lucked out that it was only us in the tasting room. Laura was knowledgeable and friendly. She answered all of our questions and more.
Response: Marie - we are thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your tasting experience with Lauren! We hope to see you again soon - perhaps for one of our other tasting experiences! Cheers!

Teaching Realtor: Great service. Unique food creations. Wonderful location. Will go back again soon to be able to enjoy outdoor seating-- this seating area must be booked in advance directly through the restaraunts' website.

Arts Club of Washington: what do users think?


Glenn C Reimer: A majestic house with a legacy related not just to James Madison's residence there, but his early months as President as well as it served as the US Executive Mansion while the White House was being repaired after War of 1812. Great facilities for socially distanced meetings, a small theatre, an intone meal with a world-class chef, a quiet courtyard, and endless stories of fascinating individuals!

Perks Advisor: This Club is sandwiched between the White House and George Washington University. It is a private club but open to the public during certain hours. The historic building is worth the visit and you can visit certain rooms that have art hanging on the walls. You can also use the facilities for events. If you enjoy art and a quiet atmosphere this is a very nice venue.

Bob Craycraft: Great membership organization and four art galleries open to the public at no charge.

BRASH BRASH: This was an unexpected treat for me. I received an email about a dinner theatre production about the pending election and decided to go. The location is quite historic and beautifully furnished. There are documents signed by early presidents on the walls. The courtyard in back was charming and features a relief of a bygone scene. Though it is a private club for artists and collectors, the location has regular openings and lectures revolving around the arts. The event I went to was affordable: $40 for a buffet dinner, a 90 minute musical, and a dessert spread afterwards. The members were all very friendly and informative, lively and welcoming.

Paul A: Nice historical place with a conference room for meetings.

Margaret Jones: You have to check website on when can see art or events open to non-members. Can also sign up on email list.

Marie-B CDA: This "temporary" White House is a very elegant home where exhibits, concerts, lectures, poetry readings, ballets are hosted and fine lunches and dinners are served. Every room is elegantly decorated and in the spirit of Monroe. The garden is a nice additio.. The Club offers membership to Artists and drawing/painting classes are taught. A very pleasant place to visit or become a member.

Dr. Laura Reid: It is a beautiful facility with a beautiful grand piano on the second floor. And houses a lovely space for meetings

Michelle Peete: Small art museum nestled close to GW University. A great venue for intimate events. Large patio area for outdoor activities. The food was adequate. Great service.

Jeffrey Kipers: Great place for event such as a wedding reception

The St. Regis Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Lisa: You will hear the food and beverage director before you see him. During our trip, he raised his voice multiple times quite angrily - it was quite concerning to hear him speak to guest service staff in such a way and that he was comfortable enough to do it in front of guests, too. Otherwise, my husband and I had an absolutely lovely stay. Our room was amazing and there were lots of friendly faces. I also especially enjoyed the pillows, and I wish I had thought to ask what type they were as they were super comfy.

Hampus Engstroem: Don't forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking a hotel. This website will compare thousands of booking web sites and usually will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This hotel is one of the highest rated in this area. I have been staying here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure won't regret it. We went to St.Regis afternoon tea to celebrate the cherry blossom season and it didn't disappoint. The place is nice and their tea selection is amazing. It's a set menu. I personally enjoyed the savory part more. While the sweets were well represented and looked amazing, nothing tasted special but the scones. I highly recommend it I just wished that I have the choice of picking what I'd like instead of having little of everything. They offered a to-go box for the rest of the sweets though.

Sade Smith-Edwards: The hotel is amazing and me and my husband went here for the afternoon tea this passed Friday. It was our 5 year anniversary and we were thinking of staying the night after a fun day of hanging out in the city. Our opinion had changed when the person servicing us essentially never addressed me, even when I was the one asking questions. When my husband asked to have champagne, only HE got to taste it and I was blatantly ignored. She had her back to me as often as possible... That is until I was the one paying the check. I have NEVER, and I do mean never, been treated that way in any service capacity. This completely deterred me from book a night there. I'm sure the staff and hotel is wonderful but this was not a good look. And this was our 5 year anniversary. Probably will think twice before considering going here for a stay.

Ghaida Alshabnan: We went to St.Regis afternoon tea to celebrate the cherry blossom season and it didn't disappoint. The place is nice and their tea selection is amazing. It's a set menu. I personally enjoyed the savory part more. While the sweets were well represented and looked amazing, nothing tasted special but the scones. I highly recommend it I just wished that I have the choice of picking what I'd like instead of having little of everything. They offered a to-go box for the rest of the sweets though.

Squirrely: Five stars all around. The rooms are elegant, updated, clean, and comfortable. Each staff member I dealt with went above and beyond to help. I was especially pleased with the front desk employee who grabbed me a cup of coffee in the middle of the night when I had to catch an early flight. The location is excellent and there are plenty of restaurants and attractions within walking distance.

J. Jasmine Villanueva: My husband and I took a last minute trip to Washington and decided to take my parents to this facility and couldn't be happier. Rooms and service were nothing short of amazing. The staff at any St. Regis property NEVER disappoints. Oh, and it's literally a 3 minute walk from the White House and restaurants, etc. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone who is visiting Washington DC.

Sarah Morris: Unfortunately this was a disappointing and underwhelming experience. The hotel is pretty but lacks 5 star service. I have dust allergies and spent most of my time here with a clogged nose which miraculously cleared up when outdoors!! I assume this was to a lack of cleaning of their filtering system. The staff did their best and offered complimentary breakfast but I really cannot excuse having a poor night's sleep in a hotel? Certainly not worth the price ticket and I would choose elsewhere if I return.

Liem Huynh: We stayed for one night in the Metropolitan Suite in June 2022. The room desperately needs renovation and service was nonexistence. Disappointing experience overall. No prearrival email, no response when I emailed the butler service for restaurant reservation, zero communication from the butler during the entire stay. Unfriendly lobby staff, no greeting, had to open the door on my own at times. The Metropolitan Suite was old and in need of a renovation. Dirty pillow cases, worn out carpets, water from faucet smelled a little punky and we even found pieces of shattered glass on the floor. Only positive experience was the check-in, after that everything went down hill. Recommend trying something else while you’re in DC. Much better experience at the Ritz Carltons if you’re a Marriott fan.

Joe J.: Amazing tea experience in DC, probably the best in terms of service, flavor, presentation and selection of teas. The cherry blossom touch is a nice and pleasant surprise. Although it is on the pricey end, definitely recommend!

Ayesha SH: I attended the Whimsy event on April 1. Pros and cons below: Pros: Wine was good. We ordered a Napa cab so it was costly. Ambiance was decent. The best part was their waiters who were super friendly and hospitable. Cons: I was told parking would be validated prior to attending the event. On the day of they refused. We spent upwards of $600 and they wouldn’t validate the parking. Food was ok. I didn’t feel that great later at night. The princess thing was childish, hilarious, and unnecessary. Adults attend these kinds of events not kids. Overall not worth the money they charged us.

The Hay-Adams: what do users think?


Bill Maniatis: From the moment the door is opened for you, you will know that you are walking intro a most beautiful well maintained historical hotel. The facility is so well maintained and he attention to detail is second to none! Everything is clean and organized to perfection! Adding to that facility is the amazing staff! So helpful and polite and willing to perform the jobs so amazingly well. Proper turn down service, friendly and polite and so friendly This is the only place to stay in! The location is wonderful and extremely convenient however what makes The Hey Adams standout is the wonderful staff, attention to detail and how the hotel is maintained. Thank you all so much!

Evan D: Average person review: visiting from the South, and it’s an odd way to type out a review on how employees at a hotel can make you feel like you’re family here while thinking about how it’s their job to do so. It’s not a forced smile they put on, but rather a genuine atmosphere in all that they do for you. My bed was made multiple times a day, my dirty clothes were neatly folded in a small area in the room and I always had fresh towels. (It’s just a big thing for me) As I said before, the staff was more than welcoming! One gentlemen opened the door with a smile outside, and another opened it with a smile on the inside. I’m not anything special, but the Hay Adams staff sure did make me feel as if I was the most important person visiting for the next few days! Breakfast was outstanding; again, I’m a Southerner so breakfast is our staple. Didn’t get a chance to see the rooftop bar after walking 8 miles around DC because we were tired but everything about the inside and restaurant were perfect. As I said in the beginning is exactly what I want to say by ending; it’s a very hard way to describe how this building and staff make you feel like you’re family, and not just a temporary resident to fill a budget quota. There’s truly an indescribable feeling that walking into the Hay Adams is just like going to a distant relatives house. You don’t see them every day, but when you first arrive on the front porch, you’re greeted with a warm welcoming that makes you feel as if you’ve only been gone a few hours. 5 stars.

Katherine Collins: Treated my sister and her husband to a stay at the Hay-Adams & it’s one of the very few times I can say that it was absolutely worth every cent. Our rooms were impeccable, every member of the staff we encountered was genuinely caring, & every meal we ate was exceptional. Everything exceeded my expectations. I’ve never experienced anything like it; they must go out of their way to hire the best of the best & treat them well because nothing fell short of absolute excellence. I don’t think I could ever stay anywhere else in the city. It made our time in DC magical.

Hampus Engstroem: Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking a hotel. This web site will compare countless hotel sites and normally will have rooms much cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This place is one of my favorites in the area. I have been staying here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you will love it I'm sure! From the moment the door is opened for you, you will know that you are walking intro a most beautiful well maintained historical hotel. The facility is so well maintained and he attention to detail is second to none! Everything is clean and organized to perfection! Adding to that facility is the amazing staff!

The location is wonderful and extremely convenient however what makes The Hey Adams standout is the wonderful staff, attention to detail and how the hotel is maintained. Thank you all so much!

Tracey Vlahovic: This was an experience! From my room I can see the white house and such a wonderful view! I took the best pictures! The hotel bar was great and wonderful staff greeted us. We had many rooms booked and so many of my family came along and everyone enjoyed! I highly recommend!

Adam Galazka: Overall, just an amazing experience. I would give them 4.5 stars. Mainly because after our stay, we found some rim and tire damage from valet parking. Working with their management to address it. Booked this through Amex Platinum. Their check in process was amazing. From doors being open to everyone knowing your name, just great. This hotel is right down the street of the White House. Just an amazing location. Room was great with St. John view of the church. Room was spacious. Shower had an amazing pressure. Enjoyed the little touch of water and mandarins. Turn down service was also great as we did not expect it. We will definitely be back. Restaurant and bar/lounge on the premises are amazing.

brian perkins: Was visiting DC for the first time since the pandemic. So glad we stayed at The Hay-Adams. So charming. So comfortable. So beautiful. Such great service (the doormen, the waiters, the hostesses great you by your name every day!). I only had breakfasts there…and I miss them. Especially the corned beef hash. And they charged my Tesla. Perfect.

Priya R.: What an amazing experience. The location of the hotel is spectacular, the service is amazing and the rooms are beautiful. Special thanks to Brian Thomasson for going above and beyond to make sure my twin boys felt special during the stay. If you truly want a memorable experience, you cannot stay anywhere else. We plan to come back soon…many thanks for the fantastic memories.

Michelle W: My husband and I stayed in the Lafayette Park view suite for three nights and we were impressed with every aspect of this beautiful hotel - from the courteous and pleasant service from every employee we interacted with, an awesome concierge who set us up with an informative walking tour of DC, to the wonderful in room dining staff. Off the Record was a nightly favorite! We can’t wait to come back and stay again!

Thomas Corcoran: Despite an issue with some minor room cleanliness, the hotel management handled it extremely well. The staff turned what would have been a disappointment into a very positive experience. We look forward to returning for a relaxing stay again.

Oxon Hill Manor: what do users think?


Erin Shields Evans: This is such a beautiful wedding venue, either for an indoor or outdoor event! The manor house itself is gorgeous inside but the gardens are impeccable. Everything is so green and expertly manicured, and there are so many beautiful flowers. The outdoor white tent is well-maintained as well. There's plenty of parking for all of your guests too! The house has a large bridal suite available and a smaller room where the groom and groomsmen can hang. Everyone I spoke with on the phone while planning our wedding here was so kind and helpful, especially Lou Lou, Carla and Betty. Highly, highly recommend!

Claudia Benjamin: We had our wedding here In the morning the views are breathtaking. The house is well kept and the staff is very helpful. If you are looking for a wedding venue or a place to hold a very special event this would surely be one of my picks. We had an intimate 10 am wedding in August with the ceremony seating facing the Potomac. It was fairly hot that day so we made use of the house for the cocktail hour as well as the library to house the cake from the heat. The tent was beautiful and big enough to hold more then our 12 tables and dance floor. The bridal suite is beautiful and gives some amazing pictures as well as the grooms suite. The grounds really do speak for them selves and there is ample parking. If I had to do another event I would surely use them.

jay R.: Beautiful place for a wedding. The food was absolutely fantastic. The wait stuff were very friendly and funny. The decor inside is amazing. Plenty of parking. Highly recommend!!!

Serge Jerome Jr.: Beautiful venue for an outdoor wedding. The wedding was outside on the lawn with the river and green trees on hills in the background. An unbeatable backdrop. The reception was by the pool which had springs and was very clean. It was beautiful all the way around and a great venue.

Jason Dublin: This is a beautiful venue. Gorgeous landscaping, gardens, fountains, hardwood floors and more trees in the backdrop than you can count. This is nestled in between the MGM and National harbor so you can see the ferris wheel in the distance if you stand in the right place. Staff was wonderful and helpful. Only drawback was the small single serve bathrooms (one for men, guessing same for women's).

Sanjeev Sagar: Nice and beautiful venue to host a wedding 💑.

Egypt Edey: Very beautiful and elegant Mansion

Scott Payen: It's an amazing space. The staff was very helpful and polite. I was there to DJ a wedding in August its gorgeous. I would definitely have future events there.

Bob Garcia: This was a wonderful location for my friends wedding! The decor was Colonial and added to the charm of the venue!

Alexandra Ritchie: Beautiful stately home with an amazing view. I was there for a wedding. I had an amazing time. Please note that there is no air conditioning. I felt relieved to go upstairs for a bit where there was an electric fan.

Honey & Lavender Events: what do users think?


Erin Phillips (Attention To Darling): Maya helped us plan my daughter's fifth birthday during quarantine. She was extraordinary! Very professional, quick timing, and she over-delivered. I never could have dreamed up all the fun ideas and executed upon everything without her creativity and organization. Even from states away, she was so very helpful! I HIGHLY recommend her virtual party planning services! Thank you Maya for a wonderful party, you're a lifesaver!
Response: Erin - thanks so much! It was our pleasure planning Sully's party!

Bryce Fowler: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueMaya with Honey and Lavender was the best support to plan and execute my husband’s 50th birthday week. She was responsive and creative up front in the planning phase and great to have as an extra pair of hands during execution. I would definitely hire Maya again and recommend her for any party planning.
Response: Thanks so much! We loved helping you plan your hubby's beach bash. He is very blessed to have you for a wife. :-)

Krista Hall: I don't even know where to begin. Obviously, a little Guardian angel led us to Honey and Lavender when searching for a Wedding Planner and we are so grateful we found Maya Mahoney. From the minute Amanda and Andrew reached out to her all the way to the end of the Wedding Reception Maya and Juliette were professional, fun, caring, always on top of things, and calm which are all the things a bride and groom need. Never once did we feel like we were left hanging waiting on information or have any concern as Maya made sure we knew all was on target with the timeline and there was nothing to worry about. Juliette was also very helpful and a delight to be with on the day of the wedding. Maya is the best and we greatly appreciate how well she does her job and runs her business. I highly recommend Honey and Lavender to anyone looking for the finest Wedding Planner in the DC area. My daughter's Wedding was in Baltimore and flawless thanks to Maya and her team. Krista H (Mother of the Bride)
Response: Your lovely daughter and handsome son-in-law were dream clients. The parents of the bride weren’t too shabby either! 😉

Attorney Yaida Ford: Positive: Responsiveness, ValueMaya was great to work with. I was under alot of pressure with a venue who wasn't as organized as I'd hoped. She saw details that needed to be worked out before I did and I felt that she was reliable. She was also responsive...even over a holiday weekend. I would definitely work with her again.
Response: Thanks Yaida! We’re so glad we could take something off your shoulders, given how busy you are. You’re birthday bash was spectacular and well deserved.

Amanda Hall: I knew early on that I would need a wedding planner as my job is always super busy. I'm organized but couldn't do it all and was so glad I realized that before we got far in the planning. Maya and her team at Honey & Lavender absolutely exceeded our expectations, were such a joy to work with, kept us on track, relieved SO much stress, and really became a friend. I *highly* recommend working with her for your wedding (or other events!). You definitely will not be disappointed.
Response: We absolutely loved working with you and Andrew throughout the entire planning process. You both were dream clients!

Lynne Cripe: My husband and I hired Honey & Lavender Events for full-service planning of our 10-year vow renewal. We eloped when we got married and this was our chance to have a wedding-like event that we had promised our family and friends to one-day hold. Maya and her team were AMAZING! They immediately got a sense of our vision and hopes for the event, helped identify a stellar team of vendors, kept us on track in terms of tasks and budget, came up with creative ideas when we were stumped, helped us navigate the vagaries of event planning during a pandemic, and took care of the details so we could enjoy our guests and each other. People asked us if we were stressed in the days prior to our vow renewal and our ability to honestly respond, "No" was all due to the competence and care of Maya and her team. I would hire them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them enthusiastically to others.
Response: Thank you so much! We absolutely loved working with you and Ray on your stunning and beautiful dinner.

Meredith Stradley: Maya and her team (particularly Juliet!) were great from day one. She was so good at keeping me on schedule, thinking of the smallest details, and providing great recommendations for vendors. Three days prior to our wedding reception, there was a 98% chance of rain and thunderstorms. And, three days prior, we were informed by the venue that we could not have a tent for cocktail hour, which had been promised to us during the entire process in the event of rain. Maya handled so much back-and-forth, and long story short, Maya convinced the venue to allow us to bring in an outside tent vendor, which required Maya and her team calling 19 (not a typo!) tent vendors to find a tent available for our reception on such short notice. I was shocked she was able to pull it off, but that's what Maya does. And in the end, our reception was truly great and more perfect than we could have imagined!
Response: We are so glad everything ended working out perfectly! We loved all the time we got to spend with you and your wonderful family. :-)

Yana Kravtsova: Maya organized my teen's birthday and it was a seamless and fun process. She is very responsive, organized, picked up the ideas and style we wanted for the party easily and implemented it with very little involvement from us due to our busy schedule and travel. Everything from venue to cake and favors was on point and within our budget. Everything went smoothly, and everyone had lots of fun. Thank you! Highly recommended!
Response: We absolutely loved working with you on this birthday party! Such a fun theme, special birthday gal with awesome parents. You made our job easy.

joan hadeed: You absolutely need Maya and her team at your wedding. I cannot say enough good things about them. I hired Maya as my day of planner and from a month out from the wedding she was coordinating it all! I was at ease in the weeks leading up to the wedding because Maya was so responsive to all of my vendors and made sure there was a detailed timeline for the weekend. The day of was PERFECT. Maya and her team are so warm, flexible, organized, and professional. I received so many compliments from both other vendors and guests. Everyone says “something” will go wrong on your wedding day. NOTHING went wrong on our day thanks to Honey and Lavender!!
Response: You and Jordan were the sweetest! Definitely #couplegoals and #clientgoals

Jennifer Greene Naples: Maya and Juliette planned a garden soiree birthday party for us in the spring. They were fantastic -- timely, knowledgeable, and well-connected. It was a wonderful, WORRY-FREE experience, which was EXACTLY what we wanted. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Honey and Lavender Events, without hesitation, and hope to be able to work with them again in the future! Thank you again for all your help!
Response: Thank you so much for trusting us to plan your bash! We had so much fun.

The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Hampus Engstroem: Don't forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏ.ᴄᴏm when booking any resort. This site will compare countless booking websites and typically will have prices much cheaper than others! Thank me later! This resort is one of the highest rated in this area. I've been coming here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure will love it I'm sure! Fantastic staff. Everything was top-notch, clean, and met our expectations. Our supposed room “upgrade” wasn’t really any upgrade, but nonetheless it was a good room. Breakfast was also great. About a five minute walk from the nearest Metro station which made it nice to get around. A longer walk, but we walked all the way down to the National Mall in about 40 minutes.

Mother Tucker: Location is good. Easy to locate. Front desk staff was rude and condescending during every interaction. Room was nice but nothing exciting. The doormen and the staff on our floor cleaning were all exceptionally pleasant. They are what earned the three stars. Also, if you want eye candy, stay at the same time as dignitaries so the place will be full of secret service. I felt very safe.

Logan Deyo: Fantastic staff. Everything was top-notch, clean, and met our expectations. Our supposed room “upgrade” wasn’t really any upgrade, but nonetheless it was a good room. Breakfast was also great. About a five minute walk from the nearest Metro station which made it nice to get around. A longer walk, but we walked all the way down to the National Mall in about 40 minutes.

Katze Love: I've stayed here twice, only for a day or two each time. The lobby is beautiful and it's a cool location. Ritz is a strong brand, but since Covid it seems to have lost a little value. The club lounge has been closed for some time and the rooms could use an update. There are plenty of high-end hotel options around DC so for the price you pay here, you could also explore the St Regis or Four Seasons. Still a nice destination and good central location.

David Berman: The Ritz Carlton in Washington DC is one of the best hotels I have ever been to! The people who work there are so nice and welcoming. It is a hard place to not love. I personally loved my room. My room came with 2 bathrooms, A enclosed bedroom, and a bar area along with a dinner area. It was the height of luxury. The restaurant there was called the Quadrant. They had some of the best service I have ever had at a hotel restaurant. The food came in huge portions and looked spectacular. Overall, I truly enjoyed my experience there and I know that if any of you guys go there you will too! David Berman Public Space Rating Co. 2021-2022 Chief Rating Officer

Tammy Trungadi: My first time at the Ritz Carlton! It was so beautiful and my stay was fabulous! Maggie, a member from the staff, was so kind to me. She personally brought me carafe of coffee to my room! I felt like a princess! Room was spacious, beautiful and everything you possibly could need for a restful and relaxing stay!

Candy Be: Stayed for 4 nights. Mo at the Concierge desk and John at the restaurant coordinated cocktails one night and dinner another night for our large group. Mirna with room service was so friendly. Overall a pleasant stay.

onthegoboomer: We had a great stay here! The staff throughout the hotel were excellent at all times. We booked a room in the club lounge floor for access to the lounge which serves 5 times per day. We were told that this hotel did not automatically grant access to the club level just because you have that status from being a Marriott member and do receive at other Marriott properties. Here you have to pay. I am not sure if we would have received a complimentary upgrade to the club level but will check that out the next time. The club lounge was amazing and the staff could not do enough to ensure our comfort and happiness at all times. Fatiah, Nayana, and Beri were AMAZING and made our times in the lounge so enjoyable. They have breakfast, lunch, snacks, evening hors d'oeuvres, and dessert. Complimentary alcoholic beverages in addition to water juice and coffee/tea. The room was comfortable and the bed was great. The shower/bathroom is dated and the shower is small and the power of the water was a little overwhelming but we had a great visit and would stay here again and again.

Tyler Harris: Rooms were nice as well as the hotel staff. The whole ambience of the building was extremely pleasant especially the christmas decor. The food was just amazing. I got the hanger steak which was hands done the best flavored steak I've hand in my life. The only thing I didn't like was the admission fee for going to the pool which is just absurd seeing as how expensive the hotel is already.

United States National Arboretum: what do users think?


Eduardo Moser: We visited during cherry blossom days. They have a great variety of cherry trees and magnolias. It is a complement to know different cherry blossoms from those of the Tidal Basin. There is no proper public transportation, so the place is fairly free of tourists. We came to this place by car on the recommendation of a friend who lives in DC. The Bonsai collection is amazing. There is much to walk and explore. On a plain they have mounted the original columns of the Capitol. Bring some snacks and drinks, because there is no service in the place. Access and parking is free.

Laurie Zabala: Beautiful landscaping. Very tranquil & relaxing walk through the extensive herb garden. The Bonsai museum is a must. Great place for a picnic. The National columns are stunning. Entrance is free. Be sure to use the restroom at the visitor center when you first arrive because you'll do alot of walking & that's the only restroom on the grounds. Bring a water bottle & snacks as there is no restaurant on site. Definitely a treasure that's worth the trek to the east edge of DC.

Marty Shaw, Author, RCA, BCMA: Great experience! Just go! I was there in early spring and the colors were amazing. So many different specimens of plant material I never see commercially. They have an amazing assortment of unique things you won't find anywhere else. It was a real treat.

Da-Wang Wu: We came here in late April, and the Azalea blossoming was pretty amazing! Walking on the trail with the Azalea blossoming along the way was very nice. Parking inside the park can be tricky, so we parked in the lot right next to the entrance and walked 5-10 minutes to the main campus. Overall, it’s a beautiful place, and I would definitely come back.

CJ: Depending on when you visit the US National Arboretum, something different is peaking. In mid April, the fruit trees were just past peak, but the lilacs shrubs were close to full bloom. As I strolled thru the lilac grove, the soft lilac fragrance permeated the air. One of the US National Arboretum’s most prominent and a little puzzling landmarks is the old Corinthian National Capitol Columns residing on the Ellipse Meadow. The US National Arboretum was not the column’s intended home when they were quarried back in the early 1800s. Originally, the columns were built as a part of the east portico of the US Capitol Building now located about 3 miles away from the US National Arboretum. By the 1860s, when the dome of the Capitol was completed, the columns were deemed inadequate to support the new dome. It wouldn’t be until the mid 1980s before the columns would find their final home at the US National Arboretum. Twenty-two of the original 24 columns are on majestic display in Ellipse Meadow. During our trip to the US National Arboretum in mid April, the Azaleas were just starting to bud and bloom. So no good pictures this trip. Peak time for the Azalea garden at the arboretum is late April. I hear the Azaleas are a beautiful sight when the hillside is painted with splotches of different colors.

Omar Abu-sabha: It is a great place to walk and enjoy the area's vegetation. The Japanese and Chinese pavilions are very interesting, although they are closed in winter. The old columns of the capitol are without a doubt a must if you like photography.

Melissa B: Despite living in the DC area for over 30 years, I had never been here. What an oversight! The National Arboretum is beautiful and interesting. Everyone there, staff and visitors, were very friendly. I'll be bak again.

Karthikeyan Rajaram: Luck is when you run into a beautiful place like this without planning. Better luck is when you get into it in the company of a person who used to volunteer at this place. We didn’t really plan to be at the arboretum, considering that the Spring is still not Springy enough. We had seen enough of Cherry Blossoms in the Tidal basin area that we thought we could do something else. We just made it to this place on recommendation from one of our relatives, who also accompanied us. Since he was a volunteer here, he helped us navigate and gave us so much insights about the different kinds of plants, flowers, bonsais and the what the lovely people who work here, do. We drove around this place and still got to see more cherry blossoms, along with different other species of flora. The enchanting Bonsai museum is a must visit as it did take our breathes away. The old columns of the capitol and the grove of different state trees are some of the special features of this place. The flowers were not in full blossom and we definitely look forward to checking this place again in summer.

Logan Heilman: Visited for the Bonsai event they were having and had a blast. All the vendors were great and the museums bonsai and penjing exhibit was phenomenal. Will definitely be back.

Elisabeth “Beth” Ostrander: We only had about an hour and headed to the bonsai area. Wow! To see living gifts from Japan and China that were started and cared for since before the birth of our nation was truly outstanding. Befitting our National Arboretum! Will return to see more treasures!

The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Jessica Leifer: Disappointing. Can hear the highway from the room, and they supposedly didn’t have any other rooms to offer us. Definitely not worth the price. Rooms should be soundproofed better. Mediocre— nice Marriott at best. Probably could have spent $200 less and stayed at a hotel just as nice, and way quieter. The lobby is adorable and homey feeling. Service was great. Location is great.

Alyssa Glorioso: I had the pleasure of working with the director of catering, Liliana Klein, on a gorgeous wedding this past weekend. I was the couple's planner and was thrilled to be able to produce a wedding at Ritz Carlton Georgetown. Throughout the process, Liliana was the consummate professional: warm and welcoming, communicative, addressed any and all questions, followed up after any meetings promptly, and on the day was FANTASTIC to work with. I could tell it was a high priority of Liliana to go above and beyond for the couple in making their wedding weekend a dream experience for them and an effortless celebration for their guests. Would work here for every wedding if I could! Plus, gatherings of 70-90 are my favorite!! Thank you, Liliana and RC staff.

Clarence Reber III: Easily one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at in the US. It was our third different Ritz-Carlton location, and it surpassed the other two in terms of service and feel. Let's start with the negatives: parking garage is on the opposite side of the same block and down a hill. So if you plan to self park, unload your stuff and family first (it was cheap though, so that's a plus). Also, there's plenty signs of wear on the furniture and trims in our suite. But honestly, we didn't care about any of that. We were greeted by three door men who escorted us to seats at the concierge, and then later to our suite. The concierge was extremely welcoming, upgrading our room and offering late checkout without us having to say a thing. The complimentary glasses of champagne are a really nice touch. The suite was gigantic and I really didn't want to leave. Bed was super comfortable, the tub was awesome, and the shower was huge. The bathroom was also very large with a separate toilet/bidet station. Oh, and the extra powder room was nice. Room service brought breakfast at the exact minute it was requested, and it was really good. Cutest little bottle of hot sauce, too. I understand that I'm glowing about this space largely due to the upgraded suite, and that I'll never get that again, but I seriously cannot wait to visit here again.

Patty Arvielo: I'm sorry but hope that my review helps when making a decision on what hotel to book. This is a 3 star hotel at best, it appears as though it is a Marriott not a Ritz Carlton. For a better choice book the Four Seasons Georgetown. I have an Exec Suite , the furniture is stained and old, the mini bar has absolutely nothing in it. Just not a 5 star hotel.

Alice Greenberg: I absolutely loved my stay here! The service was amazing the entire time! I stayed in one of the "Wellness rooms" and really loved being down the hall from the spa as that was my primary reason for staying. If you're not going to the spa I'm not sure it's worth the upgrade but my room was very comfortable. I was advised at check-in that the wellness rooms were closer to construction on a neighboring building but the noise was minimal and didn't bother me at all. The food was expensive but high quality and generously portioned.

Sean C: For a high end hotel, the rooms were old, not well maintained, and very underwhelming. We were super disappointed when we got into our room. It was mediocre at best. It looks like what you would expect at one of the lower end Marriott properties, but not a Ritz. The shower is super small, the toilet is very low to the ground and uncomfortable. The bathtub was dirty, the towels were small, thin and not soft at all. The wallpaper also has stains in a number of places. The lobby of the hotel is nice and the location is good. There are two wings in the hotel and our room was in the West, so I don’t know if this is an older part of the hotel or not, but it could use major renovations for us to want to come back again.

Toni Dzinic: My wife and I had our wedding at the Ritz in their Fahrenheit Ballroom, and what a beautiful night it was! We had ~60 guests and that is about the most people I’d personally recommend for the ballroom. Liliana Klein is the person to talk to when you want to plan a wedding there and she’s such a pleasure to work with. She walked us through everything from day 1. The food was excellent, the preferred vendors were also a joy to work with. Seriously, I’ve never experienced better service at a hotel. If you’re considering having your wedding here, do it! If you’re coming here for a night or two, or just to enjoy some dinner and cocktails, you also won’t regret it. We’ll be back!
