Unique Wedding Receptions with utmost attention to detail are our specialty. From the start of the planning process through the completion of your special day, you will receive personalized assistance from our staff on everything related to planning your perfect wedding reception.

Whether it be an intimate served dinner or a large gala affair, either can be accommodated in our four elegantly appointed rooms, which are anything but typical “hotel banquet rooms.” The Powerscourt, with its rich woodwork, beveled glass and beautiful bar, provides a wonderful start to your reception. From there, your guests will led down the winding marble staircase to The Phoenix Park Ballroom, featuring Celtic inspired carpeting, floor to ceiling windows and several unique appointments, for a sumptuous served dinner or dancing the night away.

Another popular style is our floating wedding reception. Your guests will enjoy all of our second floor reception space for the first two and a half hours. They will have the opportunity to float and mingle while enjoying exquisite Hors D’oeurves and experience a variety of innovative Culinary Stations. Guests are then guided downstairs to our Ballroom for cake cutting and dancing.

The charm of the Phoenix Park makes it the perfect place for weddings with several out of town guests. You can truly make the hotel “your own” for your wedding weekend. Out-of-town guests can enjoy a “mini vacation” while here and can see the sites – our proximity to Union station, the Capitol and museums makes it very convenient. Our pub, The Dubliner – a landmark in DC - is a great gathering place in between the festivities.

We would be delighted to work with you to plan a truly memorable wedding day! Read less

THe Phoenix Park Hotel provided a wonderful lodging experience for our guests and the Bride and Groom for our December wedding. We were treated to two fabulous suites at the top of the hotel overlooking Union Station and the Capitol that enabled us to host our hair and makeup for the bridesmaids, and the wedding party families on the day of the wedding. The staff were outstanding from the moment we checked in until checkout. They went the extra mile when we encountered problems and solutions were seamless.
THe after- wedding Brunch in the beautiful Powerscourt room on the following morning was spectacular with full Irish country breakfast selections and the best smoked salmon I have had in a long time.

I would recommend this hotel and staff for any occasion, but especially a wedding. Tracy Zahn pulled out all the stops and we are so appreciative.

We cannot express how thrilled we were with the Phoenix Park Hotel and its staff, particularly the wedding planner, Tracy Zahn. Thank you, thank you, thank you for an unforgettable wedding reception! You truly exceeded all of our expectations and the night turned out better than we could have ever imagined.
The Phoenix Park is an upscale yet affordable venue with excellent customer service and outstanding attention to detail. Tracy will work with you every step of the way to ensure that your vision is turned into reality. In our case, that meant planning a New Year's Eve reception, accommodating an Irish Band and a DJ, helping us create a signature cocktail, and even having the chef make a wedding cake entirely out of cheese! Most importantly, however, Tracy was able to stay within the budget we had requested and there were not surprise fees or add-ons at the end. This meant the world to us and we are very grateful to have had such a positive experience. Throughout the entire year-long process, Tracy was a delight to work with. She always answers with prompt replies and thought of EVERYTHING.
The entire hotel is a beautiful setting for a wedding reception. Particularly the upstairs private bar is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect setting to kick off an event. Our guests loved the cocktail hour we hosted there. Mary Trochowski is an outstanding chef and the food was absolutely delicious. We had a selection between salmon and lamb, plus a vegetarian option. Our guests raved about the food, telling us that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding.
The entire hotel staff was also wonderful in accommodating all of our out of town guests. Since neither of us are originally from DC, the wedding was a destination wedding for nearly everyone invited. Michael Love and the other staff who worked the front desk throughout our wedding week made sure that all of our guests felt welcome, received our favors and were well taken care of. Thank you, Phoenix Park!

Tracy, Lindsay and the staff at the Phoenix Park Hotel were, absolutely, a joy to work with. From the planning process right through to loading all the odds and ends in our car the day after our wedding, they didn't stop asking what they could, how they could make our lives easier and if we needed anything. We had our hotel block and rehearsal dinner at the Phoenix Park and both were beyond reproach. The Hotel is clean, well appointed and extremely charming. As the groom, I had the opportunity to stay in a normal room and then the suite, both of which are beautiful, comfortable and warm.

The rehearsal dinner was fabulous. The food was wonderful and I highly recommend the pasta action station - wonderful. It was ALL great, however.

The staff, though, is really what makes this place shine. Tracy and Lindsay went out of their way to ensure we had everything, even helping out with the possible storage of some boxes at the last minute, though it proved to be unnecessary. The staff who work the door and front desk are wonderful and absolutely top notch, helping us get things to the car, delivering bags to guests as they arrive and being incredibly helpful. Our bartender for the rehearsal dinner (Arthur, I believe?) was amazing and poured a perfect Guinness, despite the fact that his tap was acting up a bit.

All in all, The Phoenix Park is absolutely a must-see if you're hosting an event or planning a wedding. It is a bit small if you're having a large function, but the staff will go out of their way to ensure you are taken care of. Lindsay called me several times to ensure my guests had rooms!

A must-see - thanks for an incredible weekend!

The bridesmaids and bride all got ready in a suite at the Phoenix Park Hotel, and it was AMAZING. Tracy was very helpful in getting us set up with the room, and the entire staff was GREAT. The hotel is GORGEOUS and the pictures of the girls getting ready are STUNNING. We took our first look in the lobby, on the stairs and the pictures look PERFECT.

We arranged a room block for our out of town wedding guests at The Phoenix Park Hotel. From the start, Tracy Zahn was on top of things. She worked with me to secure the right amount of rooms to meet our needs, and coordinated with our guests directly on special requests. The hotel was ideally located for our Capitol Hill wedding and provided guests with easy access to many of the city's nearby sights. The location couldn't have been more perfect.

As we neared our wedding date, Tracy was in almost daily contact with me to see if there was anything they could do to make our day even better. They delivered welcome bags to each of our guests upon check-in, which we heard from friends and family that this a smooth process. We also received positive feedback from guests regarding the dining options provided through The Dubliner.

We were able to utilize two of their bi-level suites as "get ready" rooms and they provided access to their upstairs bar area and grand stair case as the staging of our "first look." Tracy also coordinated with several of our vendors as well (florist dropping of bouquets, transportation services, etc.) We stayed in their Penthouse Suite the night of our wedding and were surprised with a bottle of champagne and sweet note of congrats from Tracy.

On a separate note from our wedding activities, I lost my Aggie ring (college ring) during the chaos of the wedding day. My Aggie ring is something I've worn every day since receiving it 17 years ago. I was crushed when we realized it was missing. I assumed it was gone forever - we searched everywhere for it. I emailed Tracy to see if by chance it had been found. While we were on our honeymoon, her team never stopped looking. In fact, 10 days after our wedding, the ring was found and returned. I was (still am) so appreciative of the entire staff for keeping up the search.

So, I highly recommend The Phoenix Park for any stay in DC! Their team is a class act.

The Phoenix Park was the PERFECT venue for our wedding rehearsal dinner, guest accommodations and reception. My husband and I can't say enough about it. Tracy, the events manager, was truly at the center of it all. She made us feel comfortable and at ease through the entire experience. She went the extra mile to make sure that EVERYTHING was done to perfection. Furthermore, the food was incredible. Our guests raved about our very personalized ethnic cuisine. Chef Mary was not only willing accommodate our special food requests, but she delivered them to perfection. Finally, the venue is perfect if you have a lot of out of town guests. The hotel room accommodations are beautiful, comfortable, and right in the heart of DC near Union Station. There is an attached pub that is a nice informal meet-up location for guests. We were also able to host our rehearsal dinner in a private room there. Overall, we highly recommend the Phoenix Park for weddings! We will never forget how wonderful they made our entire experience! Thank you Tracy, Mary and the entire Phoenix Park staff.

The Phoenix Park hotel did a wonderful job hosting a good number of our wedding guests and our reception for our July wedding. First of all, the hotel and banquet areas are gorgeous and do not need a great deal of additional decoration. This was a Godsend for me. Tracy, our event coordinator, was very easy to work with and always responsive whenever we had questions or concerns. The food was truly amazing. I was astonished that a reception for 120 people had food as high a quality as a sit-down dinner for 10 in a fancy restaurant. The staff members, from the events director to the bell hops, were delightful and attentive to not only our needs as the couple, but the needs of all of our guests, many of whom came from out of town and were not familiar with the city. What I loved most was that every step of the way most of the burden of planning was taken off my husband and me so that we could focus on the important work of getting married. Thank you for a wonderful reception, Phoenix Park Hotel. -Sara and Anthony

Tracy, who managed our wedding block, was extremely helpful. We were considering having multiple hotels hold complementary room blocks for us, but because of her helpfulness, we only went with the Phoenix Park Hotel. Tracy went above and beyond for our VIPs and people who had alternate travel plans.

We would recommend the Phoenix Park Hotel to anyone considering a room block in the DC area (and we already have!).
