  • Our wedding was at the Hotel Monaco in DC, and as my mother says "it was worth every penny." The reason we picked Hotel Monaco was because we were getting married in April and I am too much of a control freak to get married outside since you can't control the weather (especially in this area!). This hotel is really so special, and the Paris Ballroom is GORGEOUS. Hotel Monaco is not like any of the other hotels in the area- somehow it's able to be stylish, hip, impressive but feel intimate at the same time. Fantastic location with a lot of history. Also, the Paris Ballroom and hallways and guest rooms were recently renovated and they are stunning. I can't say enough positive things about working with Buddee and Eric. You have to remember that Buddee has been doing this for over 20 years, so he REALLY knows what he's doing-just follow his lead and your day will be magical. He was patient and on the day of, Buddee and Eric made sure that everything went off without a hitch. Aft... Read more

  • The wedding was just perfect. Buddy was incredible from the first time we met to the end of the night. Everything was beautiful, great service and food. The staff was wonderful, especially Eric, we just had to enjoy the evening while they took care of everything!

  • My husband and I were recently married at the Monaco in DC. If we could do it all over, we would 100% choose the Monaco again. From the moment we stepped foot into the Monaco, we both knew that's where we wanted to get married. The hotel is a wonderful combination of funky and historic--it's not stuffy like so many of the other hotel options in DC. So many of our guests (and even some of the vendors) were enamored with the hotel and everyone is still talking about how amazing the food was. From a planning standpoint, everything was so easy. Buddee was wonderful to work with. He was responsive and flexible, and he, along with Eric and ALL of the Monaco staff, made the day stress-free and, most importantly, FUN. I cannot thank them enough for such a wonderful day!

  • Hosting our wedding at Hotel Monaco, DC made the planning easy! We chose this venue because we wanted the convenience of a hotel wedding but didn't want a generic ballroom. The ballroom in this hotel is warm and we were able to personalize by adding family photos to built in bookshelves. Buddee was so easy to work with and was really flexible with all of our requests. All of our guests commented on how nice the hotel was during their stay. Some friends even said that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding!

  • My husband and I just got married at the Hotel Monaco in Washington DC. WOW is all I can say. From the beginning, working with Buddee was so great. He has been working with the hotel for a long time and knows the ins and outs. Anything I contacted Buddee about, he would respond promptly and was always calm and in control. When it came to the day of, the place came alive. The entire staff seemed so excited about the wedding and Buddee orchestrated it flawlessly. I don't think my wedding would have been half of what it was at another venue - this was definitely a dream come true. If you are looking for a downtown feel for your wedding with a venue rich in DC history - this is the place for you!

  • We had our wedding reception at the Hotel Monaco and everything was exceptional! The service the entire year leading up to the wedding was first rate, and we were able to have the wedding exactly as we wanted it. Buddee Clinton (the Monaco's coordinator we worked with) was attentive and very helpful. One of those people who really knows what he's doing. He was there every step of the way, provided good advice on every aspect of the reception. In addition, he and Eric (his day of manager) worked with all of our vendors to make the whole thing process effortless. We had a dream wedding and Buddee's hard work really helped make the difference. The reception venue itself is beautiful, and if you're wondering about the service I can tell you it's just as good.

  • We recently had our ceremony and reception at the Hotel Monaco in Washington, DC. The service provided by all the staff was amazing-Buddee Clinton, their Director of Catering and Events, kept us right on schedule for the day and made sure all of our last minute change requests were taken care of--including adding meals for the a seated dinner less than 2 hours before the reception. The catering staff were very attentive to all of our guests and the food...guests are still raving about it! The venue is spectacular-lots of natural light, and very romantic. Since the Hotel Monaco is a historical landmark, it fits right in with creating a unique Washington experience for your guests and the location is central to so many DC sites. Our guests, those who stayed in the hotel, and those who just came for the wedding, raved about how beautiful it was. As a bride, the hotel suite (gorgeous) was perfect for having a hair and makeup team come to the room and to host family and friends throu... Read more

  • We had a fantastic experience using the Hotel Monaco DC for our wedding. The food was STELLAR-- my picky foodie family was gushing about the lunch for a week, even the vegetarians. The venue is gorgeous, and really unique--a cool blend of funky/modern and historical--and you can't beat the convenience of the location. These are the awesome things that your guests will see. What made our experience even better were the aspects that only you will see, but at the end of the day, make all the difference. I shopped around a lot, and found that the Monaco was the best value of any DC venue for a lunchtime reception for 120 guests. Plus, your venue, catering, accommodations, and excellent day-of-coordinator are all in one place. Major sanity-saver! Buddee, the director of events, came off as a tad disorganized over email at first, but he really has it together, and made sure that every little detail was flawless on the day of the wedding (Jewish couples: he knows all the ins and outs of Jewi...

  • The Hotel Monaco has always been my dream location, and it was everything I had hoped for! Buddee Clinton, the wedding coordinator, is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Whenever we met with him it was clear we were in great hands! The hotel is beautiful and so unique - there's nothing else like it! The week of the wedding, the entire staff was so helpful and friendly they made it stress-free. The food was delicious, and the Paris Ballroom is a gorgeous ceremony AND reception spot.

  • Buddee and the staff at Hotel Monaco made my wedding day absolutely perfect. Not only was the venue magnificent, but everyone involved made sure our wishes were fulfilled. The food was amazing, set up perfect, and staff was very professional. Buddee made sure the hotel had everything in order so that we did not have to worry about a thing. Every aspect was flawless and I would suggest this venue to future brides in a heartbeat.

  • My wedding has not happened yet - but I signed a contract with the Hotel Monaco DC. The building is gorgeous and historic and the ballroom is lovely - it has bookshelves and and entryway that make it feel very homey - but also a big skylight that is just gorgeous. Budee Clinton, the coordinator there, is great and responsive. We had the tasting a bit ago and that was so fun - we had a private room in Poste and they let us try all sorts of things - food and wine - and we helped plan everything. So far, my experience has been great! It's not cheap - but we wanted a nice hotel in downtown DC, so we weren't really expecting cheap.

  • I had my wedding ceremony and reception in the Paris Ballroom at the Hotel Monaco and it was magical. The room is lovely with lots of architectural details and natural light. For the ceremony, we stood under the skylight/atrium and enjoyed the natural light it provided. Then for the reception the room was transformed by uplighting that highlighted the columns and vaulted ceilings. The food was amazing. It was far from your normal wedding fare. Several guests, including my father in law, commented that it was the best dinner they had had in recent memory, including at a restaurant! (And our crowd eats well.) Service was impeccable and I felt taken care of by all of the staff, from servers, to bellmen, to the front desk. Buddee Clinton has been managing weddings at the Monaco for a long time and he knows all of the vendors. Every time we met with a vendor they commented on how professional and easy to work with Buddee is. He has this wedding stuff down and made me feel co... Read more

  • Entire staff, (the ENTIRE staff), was made aware of the event and all treated us very warmly. It made our destination wedding feel like we were really getting married at home. It was special to be in such a unique space and have the vendors make you feel as if you feel welcome. Amazing and prompt service. Only issue was with getting the group rate, not the quote, but the follow-through. Lots of my guests had problems booking rooms at our quoted rate, but this was eventually fixed with simple communication with the management staff (also very friendly).

  • Everything ran flawlessly at Hotel Monaco. Buddee Clinton can be slow to respond in the beginning but ultimately delivers. The food was a little overcooked at the wedding-that was disappointing but I know it is hard to cook for such a large quantity. We had 175 in the room and it was wonderful. Our service was in the round. It was BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE and nice to see faces of our loved ones during the ceremony. The natural sky light over our chuppah was amazing. It felt magical walking down the aisle into the room. I was nervous about there being room for the dance floor and a 10 piece band but the Monaco made it work and it was perfect!
