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.

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!).

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.

The Doubletree (1515 Rhode Island Ave, NW) was recently renovated in 2008 and was only 3 blocks from our ceremony site, St. Matthew's Cathedral. We loved how we were the only wedding event that day, and that we had all 3 of the rooms on the first floor to use for our event. We had our dinner in the ballroom, dancing in the state room, and cocktails in the courtyard terrace.

A lot of hotels we looked at in DC had their ballrooms in the basement. The Doubletree has its event space on the first floor, so you get natural lighting and the guests can enjoy the outside courtyard terrace in the nice weather. The weather was perfect for us, so our guests enjoyed cocktail hour outside on the terrace. The terrace remained open for the rest of the night, with the music flowing outside. A lot of guests told us that they loved having the different areas to use.

The Doubletree also offered our guests a fantastic room rate of $99 per night. The rooms were modern, clean, and comfortable.

Carolina Kidd was our wedding coordinator on site. We could not have asked for a better coordinator. She was very responsive and helpful through our whole planning process. We loved working with her.

The Doubletree is in a fantastic location, close to Dupont Circle and The National Mall. Many of our out-of-town guests appreciated the proximity to the Monuments and other activities.

Another benefit is that Zagat rated 15Ria is attached to the hotel. Guests mingled in the chic bar each night. Additionally, the 15Ria executive chef, Janis Mclean, did the cooking for the wedding event. The food was fantastic. Everyone we talked to loved their meals.

We only had a few complaints, which in the grand scheme of things were not a big deal. First was that some of our guests did not receive welcome bags upon checking in at the front desk. This seemed to be more of a problem with the front desk staff, rather than with the hotel as a whole. The other problem was the my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets disappeared at the end of the night. They were originally placed on the cake take during the reception. After we cut the cake, we never saw them again. I was disappointed since I LOVED my bouquet.

Overall, we would recommend the Doubletree for any event.

Laure was great! The outdoor patio was fantastic for the ceremony. The food was awesome. The only downside: one of the bartenders was a bit of a pill - cutting people off that only had 1 or 2 drinks and arguing with some of our guests. Other than that - Loved the Doubletree

We had a wondefrul ceremony, Kashe Mowatt, catering manager, is outstanding. I met Kashe back in November, for a few minutes. Everythign else was via email and calls since we live in TX. Kashe was not only flexible, professional, and easy to work with, but she was able to suggest what we needed and adapt to our budget.
Jerome, Group Sales, was also outstanding. All request for our group were met and handled correctly. I would not hesitate to recommend the Doubletree Dupont Circle for a wedding or any other meeting arrangement

We didnt even know this hotel was here but it was recommended to us by a friend so we checked it out. the lobby is really nice and the staff was really friendly. the only thing i didnt like is the carpet in the ballroom, but we were able to mute it with some natural colors and you couldnt even notice it anymore, was really good actually. that was my only hesitation because the sales manager was really nice and easy to work with. she always returned my calls and emails quickly. she came in on saturday to meet with us. she didnt charge us for the ceremony space and no room rental which was the big draw for us. we definitely wanted a hotel wedding but the room rental at some places were outrageous. i didnt think the doubletree would have a good product to offer so i wasnt looking but i was pleasantly surprised by this hotel which is more boutique than anything else. The ballroom is kind of small, i would have liked a larger wedding but it couldnt fit..which is good too cause i didnt have to spend more money on additional people. Our ceremony and reception went off without a hitch, except for the dj a bit, but that's another story. we were pleased with everything. we also did a brunch the following day which was excellent also. great staff, great product, great hotel. loved it!

The hotel didnt tell us there was a massive city wide conference the day of our event, and that there would be no hotel rooms in the entire city, so it was really hard to find rooms for our out of town guests. Other than that the event was wonderful. We got great service the day of the event and the food was good too.
