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.

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!

The elegance of this hotel alone is enough for a 5 star review! Since the wedding, we have gotten so many compliments on the reception site. The food, service, hotel rooms, atmosphere, etc. were all above and beyond what we were expecting. The planning stage with Ron and Philip at the Mayflower was so easy and fun! They were both so great to work with, quick with email responses and answers to questions, easy to plan meetings with. The Chef put together a really delicious menu for us that was exactly what we were looking for. The room accommodations were beyond what we were expecting. Every guest said how much they loved every detail of this beautiful, historic hotel.

I can't speak highly enough about our experience at this gorgeous D.C. hotel. The Mayflower was an absolute dream of a venue, and even more so, was the team we worked with. The Mayflower is professionalism and class at its finest. Ron and Nancy were so dedicated to us from the start, provided rapid responses, knew every single answer to any kind of question we had, and made the day so unbelievably perfect. The entire staff, from the front desk to the bellhop, were so friendly and accommodating - our guests felt the same way. We only had 6 weeks to plan our wedding and reception, and Nancy and Ron made sure it was as stress free as possible.

The venue itself is gorgeous and the history of the hotel made the evening even more special. Doors were always opened for us, the service was amazing, and everyone was just SO friendly! They truly made us feel so special on our day. Following our ceremony at a church in D.C., my new husband and I were greeted at the doors of the hotel with a red carpet and champagne for us and our parents. We continue to hear from our guests about what a wonderful evening it was, and how delicious the food tasted. I can't imagine having my wedding reception anywhere else!

To Rosa and Jimmy many thanks. The two of you made my wedding something I will cherish forever.

To all that read this review, I would like you to know my husband and I were impressed and sold on this venue when we walked in the doors of the Mayflower Hotel. We visited many venues and I refuse to settle for less for what I had envisioned for my wedding. This place is gorgeous!! You must see it in person. Without announcing to the concierge we were there to meet with Jimmy, someone walked over to us and notified us Jimmy was on his way to meet with us. To this day my husband and I can't figure out how anyone knew we had arrived and was waiting.

Jimmy was so accommodating and personable and he was very responsive to all communication. I thought he would refuse my request for an outside caterer, but I was so pleasantly surprised when we signed the contract. :-)

Rosa was the next Mayflower representative we worked with and she answered all my questions and trust me, I had a lot of them. I probably drove them crazy at times, but they never showed it. They were always pleasant and willing to help or offer suggestions.

The day of my wedding went very smoothly and both Jimmy and Rosa made sure both myself and my guests were comfortable. They even provide complementary sweets! The fruit tarts and banana bread is to die for!

My husband and I enjoyed their services so much, we plan to visit next year for our anniversary. Thanks again Rosa and Jimmy.
