I had my wedding on Nov 28, 2009 at the george washington hotel. All through the planning they were more than helpful and accomodating for me. My ceremony and reception were held at the venue. Once the day came, though, there were some downfalls. The doors to the ceremony room were not open until 15 minutes before the ceremony, so guests were crowded in the lobby and rushed to be seated. I am unsure as to how the cocktail hour went, because we were having photos done at that time. During the reception and after there were a few issues, also. We had an unruly groomsman that we had to ask to leave after we cut him off from teh bar, and the waitstaff were taking drinks outside to him after it was communicated that he was cut off, they were freely serving the photographers and the DJ, who were not to be drinking, and we didn't get nearly as much of the left over food as we should have. We had a cake for 150 people, maybe 125 showed up, and there was not one slice left. the slices were only MAYBE 1/4" wide each, also, so its not like they were giving large pieces. Also, What food they did give us as leftovers, was cross contaminated so its not edible anyway. (They packaged the fish and chicken together), and we had very little of any other leftovers, which there was plenty left of when they were tearing down the buffet. The suite was very nice, and they were kind enough to give the groom/groomsmen a suite to hang out in before the ceremony.
