My event manager, Jessica Dankos, did not miss a beat. She was amazing and made my whole experience so much fun. It's a really beautiful hotel and I felt that it was unmatched by any of the other venues in the city. Everyone there was extremely professional.

From the minute we met with Elizabeth Kearse- we knew that the Mayflower was the best place to host our wedding. She was very welcoming and understanding of our financial situation to work within our budget. She then introduced us to our wedding coordinator, James Reilly. James and Elizabeth went above and beyond their "job description" to make us feel special! James (aka Jimmy) was beyond fantastic. Words cannot describe how much he helped execute our vision for the event which in the end exceeded all of our expectations! He was always available and prompt to getting back to us which was important since we live out of the area in Philadelphia. He was also very accommodating to our last minute requests and made them work. James and Tomeka Turner also accommodated and graciously assisted our guests. Everyone who stayed with the hotel told us a glowing review of their stay. Not only is the hotel absolutely beautiful (we love the room renovations too), but all the staff (front desk, bell hop, valet parking, housekeeping etc) were warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming. We all were completely and utterly impressed! Lastly, we do not want to forget mentioning our event banquet captain. Although her name escapes us now... She was very attentive and helped keep things on schedule and flowing nicely. Overall, it was an amazing wedding all thanks to the staff at the Mayflower! We miss it so much!

Working with Lizzy (sales), Allie (event manager) and the entire Mayflower Hotel team was an amazing experience! I had the wedding of my dreams two weeks ago and the Mayflower Hotel was the perfect backdrop! From the moment I stepped foot inside the Mayflower, I knew this would be my wedding venue. Besides the fact that the hotel is breathtakingly GORGEOUS, the customer service was exceptional! Lizzy and Allie went above and beyond the call of duty to answer any questions I had (which were numerous), resolve any issues that may have occurred, or accommodate my special requests (i.e., infusing Caribbean food into the menu. The chef special ordered mini beef patties!) My guests are still raving about my wedding, many proclaiming it was the wedding of the year! Every aspect of the wedding planning process went seamlessly and the BIG DAY was flawless! Having my wedding at the Mayflower was worth every penny and the best decision I cloud have made. I look forward to celebrating my one year anniversary there!

The Mayflower gave me and my husband the wedding of our dreams! Our family and friends still talk about how amazing the venue was and how much fun they had at our wedding. I would choose the Mayflower for our wedding a hundred times over!

The Mayflower staff made me feel pampered from the moment I checked in to the bridal suite on Friday. There were so many extra touches that made the weekend unforgettable. Jimmy Reilly was our wedding coordinator and did not miss a detail! We met several times leading up to the wedding- and he made sure to take care of all the details when wedding weekend came. Lizzie was our sales manager, who my parents still talk about like we are best friends! Everyone was so friendly and attentive.

Most of our guests were from out of town, so we had a large room block. Everyone commented on how friendly the staff was and some have even gone back to stay again! The remodeled rooms are gorgeous, with beautiful suites. Your guests will not be disappointed!

The food was excellent with large portions. Many family members told me there were actually too many appetizers at cocktail hour- that he could not stop eating the delicious food. We chose the duet entree of steak and halibut. Everything from the napkin folds to the China was perfect. The uplighting in the room was also gorgeous. You cannot go wrong with the Mayflower!

We could not have found a better venue for our wedding! The Mayflower was everything we wanted for our wedding and more! The hotel has a special charm to it. The history behind it along with the beautiful renovations made it really stand out as a venue. Additionally, it is centrally located to everything in Washington, D.C which was very convenient for all of our out of town guests. We hosted our wedding ceremony in the State Ballroom, a post ceremony coffee/tea reception in the East Ballroom, our cocktail hour in the foyer and our wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom. Every space was set up beautifully and the historical charm to these spaces really shined during our events.

We worked Lizzy Vacarella when first booking the event. Lizzy was extremely patient and understanding – she answered several questions and allowed me to bring up every possible detail before signing that contract. She gave me ease and made the process already start smoothly. Jimmy Reilly was our events manager and worked with us the 9 months following. We feel lucky that we got Jimmy as our events manager. He is so enthusiastic, energetic, patient, detailed oriented, professional, as well responsive. He continued to assure us how wonderful our wedding is going to be and everything will be taken care of by him. When time came to our wedding, he really stood by his words. We had many guests travel in from various parts of the world and he made their accommodations more than comfortable. He made sure to give the highest priority to my husband and me during our wedding weekend and we really could not have been more pleased. He helped make our wedding day one to remember!

The Mayflower was the best venue! It was everything I wanted my wedding to be and more! The hotel has a vintage feel that makes it feel like it's not your typical hotel venue. The historic charm glowed and made our wedding beautiful! It was in a convenient location that allowed my out of town guest easy access to great sites around Washington D.C.

Lizzy worked with us to book the event. She was very friendly and sweet. With her help we were able to get extra ammenities into the contract. Jimmy was our event coordinator and he was a pleasure to work with. He was with us every step of the way helping us all of the details. He was very organized and responded quickly to phone calls and emails. I will miss working with him! He helped make our wedding one to remember!

The catering staff provided excellent meals for all of meals throughout the weekend. The service was amazing. I have nothing but good things to say!

I have long been a client at The Mayflower Hotel - In the past, I have done large conventions and trade shows. So, when we went on a hunt for our wedding venue, the Mayflower Hotel was the first we looked at. I absolutely love the hotel - and the staff- but I was concerned that, because I'd done corporate / professional business there, that I would see it less as a wedding venue than I wanted to. After searching for *months* for something that I loved as much as or more than The Mayflower I realized that there was nothing comparable. We ultimately decided on the Mayflower and it was one of the BEST decisions we made. Everything was absolutely flawless. All the other properties I looked at were nice in different ways but the Mayflower was the only one that was *everything* we wanted - the staff and feeling connected to the people we would be working with for our big day was at the top of the list and The Mayflower's staff has always treated me [and my now husband] like family.

Elizabeth Vaccarrella [Lizzy] was my sales manager - she was very knowledgeable, professional, confident and most importantly *capable*. She absolutely understood the things that were important to me and crafted a wedding package that met my individual needs - it wasn't a "cookie-cutter" wedding package like a lot of the other venues we looked at. She was great and always was quick to respond and answered questions before I asked them!!

Allison Cocker [Allie] was my event manager and after the contract was signed she took over with the planning process - wedding tasting, timeline, floor plan, coordinating vendors, etc. She was great and had a ton of great suggestions - or offered a different option to ideas I had that didn't work well with previous events. She knows what she's doing. Everything was flawless - our timeline went exactly according to plan, though, I didn't pay much mind to it because she and the rest of the team really made it stress-free for me and my family. Loved it all

The best decision I made was being a Mayflower bride! From Ron in sales to Allie in events/catering, we had an amazing team who made us feel like we were their only wedding throughout the entire process, and we booked them two years in advance. They were the consummate professionals, handled any and every question, request or issue that came up - though they didn't let me know about any of the issues that did arise. All of our guests raved about how ours was the best wedding they had ever been to, because the hotel, staff, food, alcohol and location were so superb. If you are able to have your wedding at the Mayflower - DO IT!

We absolutely LOVED having our wedding at the Mayflower. It was a pricey option, but completely worth it. The venue is gorgeous, the food is amazing, the chefs are awesome, the staff is courteous, welcoming, and professional, the location is very central and super convenient for out of town guests, the rooms are great, and our wedding planner was outstanding. We worked with Ron Kee during contract negotiations and our wedding planner was Jimmy Reilly. I cannot convey how critical Jimmy was to our wedding and our enjoyment not only of our wedding day and our rehearsal, but also the months leading up to the wedding. He was incredibly responsive and attentive to every detail, which made us feel so reassured and confident that we were in good hands, and he proved that a thousand times over during the wedding weekend. He also took the time to get to know us and to really care about our wedding, our family, and our wedding party and managed to make the whole weekend run so smoothly and stress-free and feel so personalized. Absolutely nothing went wrong on our wedding day-- the Mayflower staff did a PERFECT job. It was unbelievable. And while we had initially planned to go take pictures down by the White House or something during the cocktail hour, there were so many beautiful, picturesque spots at the hotel, that we just stayed there and got gorgeous pictures. We had a pretty unique ceremony with some tricky A/V requests and they handled them all perfectly! The A/V team was really impressive. Even the head of security got to know us and gave us a little historical tour of the hotel (fascinating history, which the out of town guests also loved!). Throughout the whole wedding planning process and wedding weekend, we felt so welcome at the Mayflower. We were so glad we had our wedding ceremony, reception, hotel room block, and after party there!

Allie at The Mayflower handled my 140 person wedding. She was amazing throughout the planning processes. The week of most of my groom's guests flew in from California, Nevada and Texas. There were multiple events that week and most of our guests would end the evening in the J. Edgar for drinks and after dinner treats. The hotel was extremely hospitable. The day of we were surrounded by Allie and a team of people that made my event absolutely amazing! The food was excellent and everyone left saying they had never been to such a fun and beautiful event. The Mayflower is a special place in DC for me and my family, my aunt was married at the Mayflower in the 60s and many people in my family visited the Mayflower during it's rich history. I am thrilled to say it is now part of my history, too!
