We absolutely loved hosting our wedding at the Westin this past weekend. Noelle was such a pleasure to work with (as was Allison and the rest of the crew!) and we felt like we had the absolute dream day because of their professionalism and responsiveness. We were supposed to have the ceremony in the courtyard, but due to rain, we ended up having it indoors in the "back up space" -- I put back up in quotes, because it's really not a back up space at all, It's a gorgeous room that ended up being even more perfect than the courtyard. Our guests could not stop raving about the quality of the food (both appetizers at the cocktail hour and the reception food) and the bartenders were great about serving our signature cocktails along with anything else folks wanted. One other quick anecdote to illustrate our experience: we had made welcome bags for the front desk to pass out when people checked in, and it wasn't until we arrived on Thursday to drop things off that I realized we had forgotten to put the water bottles in the bags. I was going to set up camp right there to put a bottle in every bag, but Allison + team waved me off and put them in bags themselves. It was truly a small but incredibly thoughtful gesture and I was so appreciative of their generosity and willingness to put in some time to make my whole weekend easier. Would recommend the Westin in a heartbeat to anyone!

This venue had everything I was looking for, and then our big day came and was absolutely unforgettable in the best way. Noelle and the rest of her team at the Westin went above and beyond to give us an amazing wedding. We were pleasantly surprised. Noelle was there throughout the entire planning process and she was there for us throughout the entire wedding day, from start to finish.

SPACE:
The promenade room is so unique! It has floor to ceiling windows (hello, natural light!) and a Courtyard which was the most ethereal spot for our outdoor ceremony as well as a charming cocktail hour space.

CATERING:
The chef wrote a menu inspired by our heritage and it was delicious! For the bar, they asked what would feel more "us" so we got our fav whiskey & beer. This made for an extra special touch. It's too bad they couldn't include special cocktails (mojitos, etc) at the regular price but it was an upgrade option.

HOTEL:
After checking in, the front desk mgr walked us to the suite which was AMAZING by the way! A total gem in the city!

The lobby bar was not as "on top of things" but we ended up moving the rehearsal party across the street.

COORDINATOR:
I was especially impressed at the beginning of the process... working with Noelle to decide what WE wanted for the package. Other hotels did not offer as many options and I didn't want to spend a fortune on something generic.

I am a total Type-A and have simple taste so going in I knew that I would not want a planner but I hadn't considered all the tiny details. Noelle walked us through every step... making suggestions for our plans, connecting us with vendors, and checking in on our progress. She even set up our personal items and took them to my moms room at the end of the night. She really made sure that the ceremony, the look, the timeline, and everything else went perfectly. Also, she bustled my dress when the MOH forgot :P

I really felt like Noelle, her assistant, and the director all loved their jobs and cared about us having a perfect event. That made a world of difference and helped shape some of our lasting memories with the whole experience.

CONCLUSION:
I would recommend this venue/caterer to anyone. I couldn't have asked for a more grand and unique space or a better team with the dedication and skills to handle our special day.

I cannot say enough about the Westin Georegtown. This is truly a stunning venue and the service was amazing. Working with the A-team there, Noelle, Alicia, Megan and Chelsea made my wedding a perfect day, a fabulous event. they were responsive throughout the planning process, worked well with my other vendors and my family. The reception room looked gorgeous, the hotel rooms were clean and lovely, the honeymoon suite is so cool! They supplied a brunch the following morning that was spot on as well. All of the team members there - from the guys at the door at the front, to the receptionists and waiters and room service and cleaning staff are rock stars. I highly recommend you check this venue out!

Everything about our ceremony and reception at Westin Georgetown was perfect! Our event planner was super responsive and made the whole process easy and stress-free. The cake is included in the price and we used Nikki from Sweet Ladies' Bakery - and were so happy with the result. The cake was beautiful and tasted even better than it looked. The front desk was so on top of their game - we had almost 60 rooms booked at the hotel and they were great at accommodating everyones requests and were happy to hand out our welcome bags to our guests. On the day of the wedding, everyone at the hotel was willing to help out to make it great, and the servers at the reception went above and beyond to make sure that not only my husband and I were happy, but that all our guests had anything they needed. I couldn't find anything to complain about with their service and the wedding as a whole.

On the day of the wedding, everyone at the hotel was willing to help out to make it great, and the servers at the reception went above and beyond to make sure that not only my husband and I were happy, but that all our guests had anything they needed. I couldn't find anything to complain about with their service and the wedding as a whole. Read less

The Westin Georgetown was the perfect place for our wedding. We wanted a DC experience for our mostly out of town guest list, but with a relaxing feel. The Courtyard and Promenade are amazing spaces in the midst of same-old DC hotel ballrooms. The service for our entire weekend was outstanding and the best part of a wedding package at the Westin is that you get a contact at the hotel who is essentially a personal wedding planner. Our coordinator was Elise Kolle and she is outstanding. We highly recommend the Westin Georgetown.

We had our wedding ceremony (in the courtyard) and reception (in the Promenade) at the Westin Georgetown and it was the greatest decision we've made. I HIGHLY recommend it. To name a few things:

1. Elise Kolle the wedding coordinator is a ROCK STAR. She was so kind, responsive, professional, organized, and responsive... she made the process a breeze.
2. The venu was clean and beautiful - they were so flexible with our wishes. I love this place because the ballroom has hardwood floors and giant pillars, it doesn't feel like a 'hotel conference room'
3. Stella Sanders the group reservations coordinator made the room block process super easy, and gave us an amazing rate. We had people who came to the wedding who messed up their reservation dates and the westin didn't charge them anything for the day they missed.
4. The waiters and bar tenders were the best i've ever seen in a hotel setting. All the food was put down at the same time, and they were courteous and efficient.
5. The food on the wedding day was really really good - and tasted just like the dinner trial we did a few month back
5. Overall the hotel was very accommodating to everything we needed.

I could keep going but will stop here. It couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else.

A few weeks before my wedding, the venue wedding coordinator with whom I had been collaborating for almost a year, left to take a new job. The new coordinator introduced herself right away and got to work reviewing the notes that were left for her and confirming details with me. She was incredibly proactive and responsive to make sure everything was taken care of and consistent with my expectations, which helped to put me at ease. And everything about the venue turned out perfectly. The catering and facilities directors were also proactive - when the frosting on my cutting cake started to melt and slide off the cake, they took it away and fixed it. When it was time to cut the cake, it looked like it was fresh from the bakery! All the staff at the Westin was incredibly friendly and helpful - even the valet and bellhops were extremely accommodating at keeping our cars easily accessable and helping us move loads of wedding gear. Also, the food was delicious, and the guests loved having the use of the courtyard as a place to relax during the reception. The Westin and the Westin staff were the best part of the wedding. One thing to keep in mind for future brides - be sure to discuss what wedding gear you expect to be returned to you afterwards. This slipped my mind and a few things that would have been nice to keep got tossed out during cleanup.

Having our wedding at the Westin Grand (now called the Westin Georgetown) was the best decision we made and really set the tone for the entire wedding. If you are looking for some outdoor space in DC and do not want the typical ballroom hotel wedding experience the Westin Grand's promenade area is perfect! It is elegant and unique. The outdoor courtyard was a perfect ceremony venue with a gorgeous fountain, lighted trees and beautiful flowers planted around. The courtyard also led into both the reception area and the cocktail/after hours dance space. There's also a space for if you would like to set up your after-reception dance area to the side of the reception area, so your guests who do not perfer to dance all night can relax and take a break. Working with Kristen was wonderful and went really smoothly. We LOVED this venue and it really has a beautiful layout if you want to use the promenade as a reception area. There were plenty of areas that are great for pictures too!

The food is also an amazing plus. The Chef's selections were delicious and guest all felt full and happy after dinner!

This space was georgeous and the room accomodations for the bride and groom could not be outdone anywhere :) My husband and I had a wonderful time at our wedding! This is truely an oasis in the heart of the city!

Having our wedding at the Westin Grand DC was an amazing experience! We loved everything, from the décor to the food to the location. The interior really sold us on the hotel; it is a beautiful hotel and the lobby, ballroom, and courtyard needed no additional decoration from us to look perfect. In comparison with other hotels, we feel like we got twice the value for half the price. The quality of the location, space, and standards (menu, tablecloths, china, chairs) generally cost far more per person or would require upgrades at any other luxury hotel in the city.

Kristen Dobbins, our event coordinator, did far more than just managing catering as her title implies. She walked us through timelines, gave us advice on what makes a great wedding, and did all of the day-of coordination without us even realizing. With so many things happening that day, we quickly came to realize how much Kristen was doing to keep the event flowing. All that and she had injured her arm the day before and simply laughed it off and got right to work! We could not have done it without her!
