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!

We were so impressed by everything about our wedding experience with the Mayflower. Ron Kee assisted us with preparing the contract, and Philip Shortino managed everything related to the event planning. They both were extremely helpful and far exceeded our expectations with regard to attentiveness, flexibility, and overall quality. We also were very impressed with the quality of the food (Chef Doug and his team did an amazing job with everything) and waitstaff. We enjoyed a beautiful wedding day, and much of this is due to the efforts and attention-to-detail of the Mayflower team.

Our wedding at the Mayflower was a dream come true!! We worked with Cliff and Nancy and they were the utmost professionals and so receptive and accommodating! I looked at many different venues before choosing them and I must say they were impressive from the beginning. I live in Boston and was in town for the weekend. I cold-called the Mayflower to see if I could stop by for a tour and they fit me in for a tour that day. They were so friendly and answered all of my questions. THe venue itself is gorgeous!! One of the big things for me was that if I was going to get married in a hotel I did not want our reception hall to look like it was in a glorified conference room (ie low ceilings, weird carpets, etc). The mayflower on the other hand has high ceilings, an elegant grand hall and gold accents on the ceilings. It is really beautiful and elegant. Another plus was they allowed outside catering for ethnic food.(which is such a special treat since other venues would not let you do that or charge you crazy fees). We got the Persian food from an outside caterer and American food through them and the food was really delicious. Also, they were so accommodating with our budget (no one would have guessed how much we actually spent on the wedding). Also they were one of the very few vendors who let us extend the wedding past 12 am (which is key for an ethnic wedding :) Since we live in boston and couldn't come down often, they fit us in for a tasting on the weekend and were very receptive and prompt in their email correspondence back to us. I really, truly can not say enough wonderful things about this venue and the staff.!! I looked at several other venues in the area (willard, omni, several vineyards in VA and reception halls in VA and MD) and I really feel that the Mayflower gives you the most in terms of pricing, service and beauty of venue. Ask for Cliff or Nancy if you do end up going there...they will take good care of you!

One of the hardest decisions in the wedding planning process is selecting the venue, and I think the best decision we made for our wedding was choosing The Mayflower as our ceremony and reception venue. Not only is the venue stunning and unique in its architecture and design, but the staff is incredible to work with. The initial signing the contract process, which can be tedious and frustrating, was so easy and fun with Ron. He was enthusiastic and sweet, and always took into account our concerns and genuinely cared if were happy with the contract. He went above and beyond to make sure we were getting a great deal. Our planner through the venue was Jimmy, and he was such a pleasure to work with during this process. He was hard working, diligent, but also incredibly sweet and friendly. Throughout the planning process it was as if ours was the only wedding he had to work on. The night of the wedding, everything went with ease, but its only because the staff catered to us like we were royalty. The catering staff and Jimmy were there every step of the way with us, constantly making sure we were ok and asking if we needed anything. The service at the Mayflower is unique in the sense that they are very professional and elegant, without being stuffy. I actually consider Jimmy and Ron as friends now, and continue to keep in touch with them. Its the high level of service with the personal and friendly touches that make The Mayflower one of the best decisions you will make for your wedding.

We were so very pleased with the wedding reception held at The Mayflower on 7/26/14!
We had cocktails in the Chinese room and the reception in The Grand Ballroom... it was truly GRAND!! We worked with Nancy Calabrese and she was just wonderful...the attention to detail was excellent. Everything went smoothly and we never had a care in the world. Everyone had such a great evening...the room looked beautiful (thanks to the flowers from Bergerons), the navy chairs, napkins, lighting etc. The food was delicious, the servers were very professional and many of the guests enjoyed staying at the hotel! The band ( 'Round Midnight) had everyone dancing and having a great time. Thank you to all those involved in making the evening so very special!
