I was having trouble finding a venue that felt "just right" to me in the Northern VA area, until I came home to Winchester. The space itself is beyond gorgeous; the ballroom really does not need decorations with the incredible chandeliers they have. While planning our October wedding, we worked with many great people at The George Washington Hotel: Katie, Emily, Susie, Devon, and most importantly, Jane! Jane was so calming throughout the process and I trusted that her and the staff were well prepared for the day of. They did not disappoint! So many guests have complimented us (raving!) on the venue, the staff and the food. It truly was a fun wedding and we could not have done it without the GW team. Everyone from Front Desk, to Room Service and the Banquet staff helped make us feel welcome and at ease. My husband and I were able to enjoy our stay and the wedding because the GW takes such good care of you! We cannot wait to return and stay at the hotel again to reminiscence on a magical day!

We were beyond happy with our wedding reception at the George Washington, it felt like a dream!
To start Jane Obst, the wedding coordinator at the hotel was very detailed oriented, helpful and organized throughout the whole wedding planning process up to the very end of the reception. She had every detail of the wedding on timelines and diagrams, which was VERY helpful. I was stress free with having our reception at the GW because I knew we were in good hands with Jane. Not to mention, she's a pleasure to work with! Susie Smith and Katie were also a pleasure to work with very helpful with the room blocking and last minute bookings by guests.
On our wedding day, Jane came up to my room and picked up all things I had brought to put out at the reception so I wouldn't have to worry about it. When we arrived back to the GW after the ceremony I peeked into the ballroom and I couldn't believe how amazing it looked!
The food was wonderful and presented beautifully ( we made sure to sit and enjoy the entire meal) The banquet staff was so attentive to us and all of our guests. They always made sure we were taken care of. Our guests raved about the food, staff and how beautiful the venue was.
The George Washington Hotel itself is very beautiful and historic. I had stayed there several times before we chose to have our reception there. The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect in downtown Winchester- lots of restaurants and shopping in walking distance. Very convenient for guests!
If you are looking to have a wedding in the area I would highly recommend visiting the George Washington Hotel.

When my husband and I started looking at potential wedding venues he made me promise to view several before making a decision. The moment I stepped into the grand ballroom at The George Washington Hotel, that promise went right out the window. It was the first and last place we viewed and for good reason. The hotel is breathtakingly gorgeous and has the staff and amenities to complete the perfect setting! A few years ago they spent a large amount of money to renovate this turn of the century hotel and they did an impeccable job of decorating and furnishing all while maintaining the historical charm with modern amenities. The wedding packages that are offered are incredibly reasonable not only compared to other venues of this caliber, but also when considering all that is included. The wedding coordinator Jane is very well organized and seasoned in wedding planning. She was incredibly helpful and on top of things with regard to all aspects of the wedding preparation, ceremony (which we had in the ballroom), and reception. The banquet manager Kate was extremely attentive during the ceremony and personally checked with us at the head table several times throughout the night to ensure we were taken care of. The food was incredible and by far the best I've ever had at a wedding! Above all the overall experience was perfect. The half note lounge provided entertainment for guests after the wedding was over and the dancing goat restaurant had a wonderful brunch in Sunday morning. Our guests have been raving about the customer service for weeks. Every staff member encountered greets you and asks if they can help with anything, Needless to say, I could not have asked for a more perfect venue!! I would absolutely recommend the George Washington Hotel to anyone and am greatly looking forward to the next time we are able to stay there and sleep in their amazing bed and sheets!

The George Washington was absolutely amazing. The banquet staff was the best I have ever worked with, or seen. I work somewhere that has a banquet staff, and I know how easy it is for staff to mess up/not be attentive. The GW went beyond and above my expectations. My entire wedding reception of guests enjoyed the reception, and were in disbelief at the gorgeous ballroom and excellent, attentive service. The food is OUT of this world as well. I had a very tight budget, and figured I would never be able to have my wedding reception there, but Jane worked with me and found a plan for me. I could not ask for anything more for my dream wedding reception. Thank you George Washington!

This is a real find -- an amazing space, superb help in planning, and a great value. Our guests raved about the food, and everyone really enjoyed the wedding. Jane Obst is a treasure; she was incredibly organized and professional and helped us throughout the process. We had the rehearsal dinner and the post-wedding breakfast here, too, and both were perfect.

We were so incredibly happy with our wedding at The George Washington Hotel! Honestly, everything went perfectly - there wasn't one thing that we were unhappy with. We greatly enjoyed working with Jane Obst, who served as our wedding coordinator for the site. She was extremely responsive, helpful, and very reflective and thoughtful about ideas we had and wanting to make them work or suggesting ideas to us. She was there with us the entire evening, ensuring everything stayed on schedule -- which is VERY important - and taking care of any requests we had that night. They took care of storing all of our decorations the day prior to the wedding, and storing them afterwards until we could get them the following day, as well as placing our gifts in our guest room during the wedding. Everything was also set up for the wedding exactly as we had mapped out.

The food was wonderful, and we as the bride and groom made sure to enjoy it! We loved the cocktail hour and all of the passed hors d'oeuvres, and the plated dinner service was fantastic as well. They helped us create personal touches with highlighted 'signature cocktails' in addition to the open bar, as well as renting gorgeous silver antique trays from which to serve hors d'oeuvres.

The venue itself is gorgeous, and we particularly love the historic meaning of the space to the city (we live in Winchester). It was great for our guests (and ourselves!) to simply go upstairs to our guest rooms after the wedding. The hotel helped with placing welcome packets in the rooms for our guests, which is always nice so that guests can learn more about the city and downtown area, and find places to eat and shop. We heard many wonderful compliments about the hotel from our guests, about how helpful they were and how much they enjoyed the beautiful property.

We would highly recommend The George Washington Hotel for your event - be it a wedding, meeting, gala, or other celebration.

Our wedding reception at The George Washington Hotel in Winchester, VA was absolutely beautiful thanks to the hotel's wonderful staff and amazing service from the hotel's event managers Jane Obst and Suzi Smith. The venue itself is breathtaking, very elegant, full of character and perfect for a charming wedding in the heart of Virginia wine country. The hotel is in close proximity to the Old Town mall which is a great location for your guests looking for things to do before or after the wedding! I highly recommend this venue for your wedding reception or next event.

I couldn't have been happier with our experience at the George Washington Hotel. The hotel hosted our reception and an out of town brunch the following morning. Also many of our guests stayed at the hotel for our wedding weekend.

Jane was our coordinator and was incredible to work with. She is very detailed oriented and had everything planned seamlessly. She was so sweet on our wedding day and made me feel comfortable and important. All the staff at the GW are professional and accommodating.

The food was fabulous and the presentation was stellar.

The venue itself is breathtaking. You don't need to do much to blow your guests away. I highly recommend the George Washington for your special day!

GW hotel was a wonderful setting for our wedding reception. The ballroom was a great venue for our event. Jane is the event manager at the GW and she was fantastic throughout the process. She was accommodating to any request we would make and she sought to ensure the event went as smooth as possible. Unlike most locations where they may seek the most money from you, she sought to ensure things were done within a reasonable price. She would make insight recommendations while at the same time, not telling you her opinion on the subject. She was willing to easily adjust the timeline, store decorations, accommodate last minute requests, and friendly throughout. The food manager did a wonderful job and the food came out hot, on time, and seamlessly. The food was delicious ranging from apple wrapped appetizers to a unique salad presentation to wonderful cuts of filet. The hotel is in a great location in downtown Winchester, providing a wide range of activities for our guests.

My husband and I got married in the Pocket Garden on the side of the George Washington Hotel. We worked with Jane Obst, and she was fantastic and incredibly helpful in her suggestions. It was the perfect place for a 9 person wedding, with lovely flowers, potted trees, and water fountain. We had a private dinner afterward with our family in the Lord Fairfax Room, which was also our back-up ceremony venue in case of rain. The duet entree plated dinner was amazing and they served our wedding cake with beautiful presentation. We stayed in the luxury suite and I was able to check in early to get ready. With such a small wedding, we were able to have everyone up to the suite after dinner, as it had a couch, table with four chairs, and another sitting chair. Everyone at the hotel was very professional, pleasant, and accommodating. We had a perfect experience there.
