Why We Like This Place

  • It blends the character of a boutique hotel with the features of a luxury one. Housed in a historic converted brick industrial building, (with its original, towering smokestack intact), the Ritz Georgetown occupies an iconic spot at the village center. Fun details like nightly butler-passed s’mores in the cozy “Living Room” will charm your guests, while world-class service and amenities will pamper and delight.
  • They have the perfect oasis for an outdoor ceremony. The terraced steps, stacked stone wall, and canopy of trees make the “Urban Garden” a secluded, intimate spot to exchange vows. Your reception can be held here, too, with dinner and cocktails served al fresco and your loved ones celebrating under the stars.
  • The indoor reception areas are unique and memorable, as well. The Farhenheit Ballroom has exposed brick, floor-to-ceiling windows, awesome city views, and an industrial-chic aesthetic. Or, for very small gatherings, you won’t find anything comparable to dining and toasting at the base of the Ritz’s 130-foot Smokestack.
