A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

  • The only hotel in the area with a Mobil Four Star rating, this Ritz-Carlton also enjoys a prime location near Washington D.C.’s monuments, museums, historic sites and fine dining. It’s an oasis of luxury and pampering, offering an exclusive club level, afternoon tea…and a cache of fairy-tale wedding venues.
  • You can host a refined, intimate event or ceremony in the Ambassador or Diplomat Rooms. Each room features such upscale elements as antique tapestries, stunning chandeliers, vaulted ceilings, a marble fireplace, or even a baby grand piano.
  • Gala receptions in the Grand Ballroom exude elegance and sophistication. Start with cocktails in the Terrace Foyer, lined with floor-to-ceiling windows. Then continue the celebration in a ballroom where the walls are covered in gold silk and original artwork, and crystal chandeliers cast a romantic glow.


"It Takes Two" Intimate Weddings
