I had my wedding at the DoubleTree this past Sept. '13. Everything was wonderful. Kashe was awesome, totally helpful and easy to work with. The outdoor courtyard where I had my ceremony was beautiful and the reception room was great for a beautiful intimate reception. This hotel is a great place to have a wedding, close to DC attractions, clean and very nice rooms and the staff were professional and nice. I would do it all over at the DoubleTree.

The DoubleTree Hotel personnel were all very friendly, professional and helpful. Love the warm cookies!! I liked the boutique feel of the hotel -- not too big. Great to be in the Dupont Circle area! The venue was beautifully appointed and the flow from room to room was convenient. The food and bar service were both excellent. The wedding suites made our stay that much better. There was a spirit of familiarity in the air during the hectic business of planning as well as during the actual event that made everything very special.

Thank you, DoubleTree, Kashe Mowatt and the rest of the staff.

My husband and I couldn't be more satisfied with our choice for our wedding venue on April 20, 2013! We held our entire event at the Doubletree by Hilton Washington DC on Rhode Island Avenue (rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception). Both my husband and I stayed at the hotel the two nights surrounding our event as well. I cannot say enough positive comments about our experience with the Doubletree team. Our Catering Sales Manager , Kashe Mowatt, handled our event from front to back and was so wonderful to us. Kashe was exceptional during the entire process from our first meeting with her to the very last moments of our event. If I had only one word to describe her, it would be "professional". She is very organized, accommodating, and treated our event as if it were her own. The food was exceptional – from the rehearsal dinner meals, the hors d'oeuvres, and the reception meals. The team that setup the décor, table settings, etcetera put so much effort into every detail. The entire staff at the hotel treated our guests and us so well. The Doubletree team truly sought out to make us happy, and they succeeded! Thank you to Kashe Mowatt along with Executive Sous Chef Kevin Carpenter and Banquet Captain Jorge Burgos for your outstanding work!

Our family and us are absolutely pleased with the Doubletree. From the first call all the way through the event. Kashe is friendly and knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with, she is the catering manager and she was with us every step of the way; even helping us choose colors. The food quality was exceptional, my parents loved it and so did my grandma (which says alot!). The banquet staff, Jorge and Geoffry, the front office staff were fast and helpful, check in was a breeze. We used the outdoor terrace for our ceremony and the ballroom for our reception. we had the entire back of the hotel lobby to ourselves so it was a great flow. The cost of the packages were comparable to other locations but the package was easier to understand and was a lot more inclusive. My husband and I are so happy that we chose the doubletree and if we had it to do again, we wouldnt change a thing.

We arrived at double tree with no venue for our reception after Merriott had turned us away. Kashe Mowatt meet us with out a reservation and right away said no problem we can take care of you and did she ever. Kashe Mowatt took us back to one of there meeting rooms and began to walk us through what double tree could provide and it was amazing. By the end of our viset not only was the wedding all planed out but so was the reception all under one roof.
I can not began to explain how comfortable Kashe Mowatt made my self and our friends who marrier with us on the same day feel. we knew we were in good hands and were completly comfortable leaving DC for VA with Kashe at the healm.

I attended a wedding here at the Double Tree and i was very impressed with the venue. The decor was stunning, the food was delicious and the staff was very helpful and professional. I was very pleased with the fact that all the guests were able to stay at the hotel together and that no one had to travel to and from the celebration. I will definitely recommend.
