  • Hotel Monaco was the best choice my husband and I could have ever made for our wedding day. The location is superb; right next to a metro and surrounded by amazing things for guests to do before and after the wedding. The actual hotel is beautiful, a perfect mix of cool art deco design and classic D.C. design. I didn't hire a wedding planner or "day of" coordinator because the staff was so professional and on top of everything. I've never been to a wedding where food was brought out to every table at the same time-Hotel Monaco completely nailed it. Everyone raved about the food during the cocktail hour, dinner, and even the dessert was to die for. My husband and I plan on spending many anniversaries at Hotel Monaco because we had such a magical experience, most of which I can attribute to the amazing staff at the hotel. I wouldn't change a single thing and wish I could relive the day!!!

  • Booking Hotel Monaco was by far the best decision I made for my wedding. Buddee and his team made the process so easy for us, the food was great, the space was beautiful, and our guests had an amazing time. I was shocked at the level of service we received from planning to executing. There are so many highlights but I just want to list a few: 1. Buddee took care of all the decorations and details. He scheduled a meeting three days before my wedding and asked me to bring the decor, including name tags, centerpieces, etc. I had so many items. When I arrived to the hotel, the valet team helped me bring them up, we went through the full day with Buddee, and then I showed him all of my decorations. He gave me a few suggestions on how they might set it up and then he took it from there. To me it was incredibly stress relieving to leave all of that up to his team. I didn’t have to do any decoration the day of. 2. Buddee made my mother feel very special and taken care of. Which as anyon... Read more

  • It was a pleasure to work with Buddee and he exceeded our expectations. Buddee and his entire staff were extremely professional and they truly made sure that we had the best day of our lives. We would recommend The Hotel Monaco and Buddee to any of our friends and family looking for a fantastic wedding reception venue. The process starts with Buddee tailoring our wedding day to our specifications, and making sure no detail gets overlooked. The menu tasting exceeded our expectations, and it was really nice to see and taste all the delicious food we had for us and our guests. Buddee even made recommendations to us based on our tastes and feedback to him. Buddee and his staff really went out of their way to provide what they called “signature moments” for our day, and it truly made a difference. And of course, the cocktail hour space and main ballroom are absolutely amazing. The domed ceiling and white columns made it the perfect venue with a “DC feel” for us to have o... Read more

  • Having our wedding at the Hotel Monaco was one of the best decisions we could have made! The event coordination team is incredibly professional and took care of all the details during the weekend. Buddee is great to work with and helped us to think through all the details and then worked with our vendors to make sure the day went off without a hitch. We loved the space and the affordability and coordination efforts exceeded our expectations.

  • We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hotel Monaco. The Monaco was the perfect venue. I fell in love with the beautiful skylight in the room and the uniqueness of the hotel. Our chuppah was under the skylight, and it was just perfect with the natural light shining through during the ceremony. Guests loved the food, saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had, especially the beef. The dessert was also delicious! The night went by seamlessly thanks to Buddee. He is extremely organized and knows exactly what he is doing. I trusted him completely throughout the wedding planning process. It was truly a perfect day thanks to Buddee and the incredible staff at the Monaco.

  • We planned our wedding in under 3 months, and with the help of Buddee at Hotel Monaco it was a truly seamless event and joy to plan. Our guests RAVED about the food - some of the best food they had at a wedding. Buddee helped us set up our reception so the night flowed and the tone was set early that we were there to celebrate - I have NEVER seen my friends and family dance like they did that night. It was truly exceptional. The venue speaks for itself in our photos and in the whole experience.

  • We were thrilled to be able to hold our wedding and reception at the Hotel Monaco. The hotel is unique and gorgeous, the food is absolutely delicious and the service is amazing. We had 153 guests and everyone was commenting about how they never wanted for food or drink and how smoothly everything progressed. Our wedding felt and looked like a fairy tale. And our photos were gorgeous! The hotel provides an array of fabulous wedding photo opportunities. We also had time for a quick photo shoot (just for me and my husband) at the National Portrait Gallery, across the street. Lastly, I cannot say enough good things about Buddee Clinton and his team. They were such a pleasure to work with. After the wedding, many of us went downstairs to Dirty Habit and continued the festivities. We informally met up again the next morning for a delicious breakfast.

  • The Hotel Monaco was an amazing venue to host our wedding. The quality of service from all the staff was wonderful. Buddee Clinton was easy to work with and great when bouncing ideas off of. He definitely has the experience to lead you in the right direction. The food at the reception was delicious and all of our guests commented on how wonderful it was. The service of the catering team was seamless. The hotel rooms are beautiful!! The location of the hotel is perfect as well. Most of the attractions of DC are in walking distance. As many of our guests said, and we agree, Hotel Monaco is First Class all the way!!!

  • My husband and I recently got married at the Hotel Monaco and Washington, DC (October 2016) and had the best experience ever! So many of our guests commented that it was the most elegant and best wedding they have ever been to! We worked with Buddee Clinton at the Hotel for about 10-11 months before our wedding and he was always very helpful and responsive to my questions and emails and calls! We used the Paris Ballroom for both the ceremony and reception and it was just lovely. We used the Athens Ballroom for the cocktail hour. The food is absolutely fantastic. Our dinner started with a garden salad and goat cheese tart and we did a choice of the honey and herb roasted chicken or the grilled salmon. And we did both the pomegranate mousse and chocolate dome as the desserts among the guests. The dinner and dessert is so filling and delicious! We still had a wedding cake, but you do not need a massive cake at this venue since dessert does come with dinner! We had two bar stands which was... Read more

  • We had our wedding at Hotel Monaco this past weekend and it was perfect. The hotel is beautiful and all the hallways and the grand staircases were great places for our photographs. The main ballroom was also beautiful and perfect for our wedding of 125 guests. We got many compliments on our ceremony in a semi-circle. We also got a ton of compliments on the food. The ease of having everything in one location was great. Finally, Buddee Clinton, the event coordinator, could not have been more helpful in planning. I was not very stressed about planning at all, partly because it was clear Buddee would make sure everything ran smoothly, which he did! The only minor issue was that some guests told us they had a difficult time booking a room through the block. Overall, I could not recommend Hotel Monaco more highly!

  • The Hotel Monaco was the perfect choice for our wedding - highly recommend! We live in DC but our family and friends live all over the country (and across the pond in some cases) so we wanted to pick a venue in the heart of DC to make a super fun weekend for our guests. The Monaco was perfection! All of our guests were constantly complimenting everything about the hotel - from the rooms to the service to the location. We did both our ceremony and reception in the Paris Ballroom. The Monaco team did a flawless job making every part of the night beautiful - and flipped the room amazingly fast! When it came time for the reception, the room was totally transformed. It was incredible. (Cocktail hour was in the Athens Ballroom - also very nice.) We ended up having about 155 guests, which was perfect for the ballroom size. We had a very dancey crowd so we went with the largest dance floor, which was necessary. Our DJ did uplighting on the columns, which looked great. We used Helen Olivia ... Read more

  • We were incredibly pleased with the Hotel Monaco! Buddee really knows what he’s doing and has amazing taste. He and Eric were exceptionally helpful, well organized, and wonderful to work with. We did not feel a need for a wedding or day-of planner, as Buddee provided us what we needed and was on top of everything, including the day of. We and our guests loved the Hotel Monaco--the unique, unconventional hotel experience we had hoped for. Location, and front desk and other service, were great, the lobby and rooms are beautiful and recently redecorated, and bridal suite is great. Guests can even borrow yoga mats and bikes, and partake in free wine at 5 PM every day in the lobby. The event rooms are beautiful. We didn’t spend extra for chairs or tablecloths, and the standard ones looked stylish and chairs were comfortable. Although it could fit more, the room worked perfectly for our 143 guests, and probably would have been fine up to 170 or so, even with a large band. Many gu... Read more

  • The Hotel Monaco was the PERFECT venue for our wedding. They were so easy to work with, and made the whole planning process a cinch. Buddee and his team are excellent--efficient, calm, and knew every detail of the wedding perfectly. During the wedding, when we fell a bit behind schedule, Buddee and his team worked with the vendors to make adjustments so our photographer could capture all our special moments and we could have maximum time on the dance floor. The whole thing was seamless; we didn't have to worry about a thing. So many of our guests commented on the beauty of the venue (recently renovated), the delicious food, and the great service. I would HIGHLY recommend the Monaco as a venue; the pricing is also very reasonable for the area, considering all the things they included.

  • We had our wedding reception at the Hotel Monaco and it was absolutely beautiful and everything went extremely smoothly. Working with Buddee was easy and he was always able to answer our questions. The hotel staff were kind and accommodating throughout the whole experience. They were able to set up our centerpieces and cake table even prettier than I could have imagined and the whole night was a dream. I would love to host another event at the Hotel Monaco!

  • We had our New Year's Eve wedding at the Hotel Monaco this past year. We worked with their events coordinator from the very beginning of the process through the event. He was professional and timely in responses and offered thoughtful suggestions for our wedding day. On our wedding day, the food and service was truly excellent. We always had drinks and snacks during the reception and our server was very attentive. The hotel also provided appetizers to my husband and I immediately following the ceremony since we missed the cocktail hour for photos. Guests raved about the bartenders and other wait staff during dinner. And of course the space itself is stunning!! The reason I can't give this venue a 5 star rating is that many of our hotel guests were unable to check into their rooms at 3 pm, including my parents and other members of the bridal party who were getting ready for the rehearsal at 4 pm. They also overcharged several people inside the room block, which had to be correcte... Read more
