Kimberly Peterson and Mauricio Cortez was was tremendous in the planning coordination of our wedding. We called on a very short notice request and they made it happen with no stress to myself and my wife. The communication from them prior to, throughout and after our wedding was outstanding. They even called after to ensure that our stay at the hotel after the ceremony was to our satisfaction. We truly appreciated the extra services provided and the way they went out of their way even with a short (3 day) notice. Extraordinary service! Thanks from Mr. & Mrs. Jones

My husband and I were very pleased with our experience using the Crowne Plaza as our reception venue and room block hotel. We worked primarily with Kimberly (our main point of contact) and Mauricio.

Kimberly was great. She was always nice and professional and very flexible, even when we had some last minute changes for her to maneuver (including adding someone to our guest list just days before the wedding). I was confident that if anything came up she or Mauricio would handle it.

Mauricio really made the reception space come alive. I had a very limited "vision" for what I wanted the space to look like, so Mauricio really just ran with it and made the space look great.

The one thing I wish I'd been clear on was exactly how long Kimberly would be around on the day of. There was a point that I was looking for her for something later on in the reception and she had left already - the probably was easily fixed with the other staff that was there, but it would've been nice to know that she was no longer around.

I would definitely encourage brides in the area to look into the Crowne Plaza for their reception space. The staff is great, the location is AWESOME for out of town guests, and the price is certainly reasonable for the area.

I am so happy I went to the crowne plaza national airport for my wedding. Everything was way more than expected (not including the price). Working with Kimberly throughout the process made it seem less stressful on all details needing to take place. Every detail of the wedding was far beyond expectations. Communications throughout the planning process were prompt and professional. I don't think I would have changed a single thing at the wedding. The price was very cheap for the product I received. My nor husband and I paid for the entire wedding from our own pockets and can say it did not put us into any debt. The food was so delicious and beyond expectations. The event was put together with joy and love and it was such s beautiful event. My husband, myself and every single guest said they had really enjoyed themselves which to meand the crowne plaza national airport staff really know how to execute and get the job done right. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. Awesome job

If you live in the area, I would definitely recommend looking into having your wedding at the Crowne Plaza. The wedding events coordinator, Lauren, and then Kimberly did everything imaginable to make my wedding the best day ever. I always got responses to emails quickly, all of my questions and concerns were answered and attended to. On the day of, Kimberly made sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be and what they were supposed to do and Mauricio always made sure that we had food and drinks during the reception. They only book one wedding a day, so you are their full priority. I have no regrets about choosing the Crowne Plaza and I would definitely tell anyone getting married to consider them first.

I strongly encourage everyone and anyone who is planning to wed in the Washington Metro Area to consider the Crowne Plaza. Unlike other hotels they only host ONE WEDDING PER DAY which means staff are dedicated completely and totally to you. They were super professional and flexible and patient the day of and made sure that everything ran smoothly. Most brides don't recall eating...but the staff made sure that the bride and groom had time to eat and be merry!

We had a great experience with the Crowne Plaza Crystal City. We worked with our coordinator (Lauren) and the Crowne Plaza staff for several months planning the details of our wedding. Staff were always available, attentive, and friendly; Lauren went out of her way to accommodate every request and make sure our day was perfect. Our wedding weekend was a magical experience. Even though we worked with Lauren to carefully plan all the details, we had no idea how grand the actual day would be. It was a mind-blowing experience and beyond our expectations. I wanted a beautiful, elegant, whimsical, classic, and upscale wedding and that was exactly what we got, and more!

I would highly recommend the Crowne Plaza Crystal City if you want a beautiful venue, a super attentive staff, and peace of mind before, during, and after the wedding planning. We are extremely satisfied and feel it was a great value for an elegant, yet hassle-free, affair!

Lauren, Mauricio, Kimberly and the staff at the Crowne Plaza were wonderful to work with and ensured our wedding day was perfect! During the pre-wedding planning, Lauren was extremely responsive and helpful. She quickly answered all our questions and offered helpful solutions to any issues that came up. The day of the wedding, the staff was phenomenal, and that’s not just coming from us; our families, wedding party, and guests mentioned how accommodating and friendly the staff was—everything from setting up to assisting our guests with getting cabs at the end of the night. I spent too much time of pinterest and had lots of little touches I wanted. Everyone says you don’t notice all the things that go wrong on your wedding day, but I can honestly say I was blown away that everything was done exactly how I asked, and the things I hadn’t thought about they had better ideas than I could have come up with.

It was a convenient place for our friends flighting into the area, as well as for those who were local. When we first visited we thought the layout was a little odd, but the day of it was exactly what we wanted/needed. My bridal party and I had lunch and got ready in the Monticello Room. The space was very large, so we were able to fit comfortably. We choose 6 menu items in advance for the girls to have as options for lunch, got champagne from the hotel, and set up the room with mirrors and music. We had our ceremony outside—in their huge terrace, and the staff did a fabulous job decorating it. The cocktail hour and reception space was great, and it was really nice that it was close to the terrace, because our guests could take a break outside to cool off after all the dancing!

We loved working with Lauren, Macuricio, and Kimberly and would highly recommend the Crowne Plaza to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Not only did we think it was a perfect wedding, several of our friends said it was their favorite wedding they’d ever been to!
