What can I say - it was a great day! We had both our ceremony and our reception at the hotel, and the Galaxy Ballroom is one of the best rooms in the area (we looked at several similar rooftop ballroom spaces). We had 143 people, including the two of us, and there was plenty of room for all of our guests, a spacious dance floor, a bar, the DJ, etc. - there was probably room for one or two more tables! The day went super smoothly, significantly due to the efforts of the catering and events manager and her staff, who were on top of everything. We had about 30 guest rooms taken up by out-of-town guests, who all said they were comfortable and happy with the rooms. It was easy for everyone to get to, everyone was thrilled with the convenience of being able to go straight from the ceremony up the elevators to cocktail hour, and the food was delicious. One piece of advice I'd give other couples is to take a good look at what you're getting for the price. This wasn't the least expensive venue we looked at, but it was by FAR the best value in terms of quality of goods and services (a quality open bar was very important to me! ;o) ), and also the most reasonable in terms of both minimums and charges for extras. They also provided a list of recommended vendors that weren't mandatory, but was a helpful place start for some of the other aspects of our wedding.

Donna was simply perfection. She took care of every single detail, and my wedding was truly perfect. I didn't have to stress about virtually anything. All of my guests had the rooms they needed, and I received so many compliments on my choice of venue. I highly recommend this choice for venue! The chef is absolutely magic. He was so friendly and kind; the food was amazing. My guests were basically licking their plates clean the entire night. Donna made sure that every single detail was on point, and as someone that pays attention to each little detail, that was exactly what I needed. This is the best venue out there!

Worked with Betsy Jones as my Wedding coordinator and must say that everything turned out wonderful! Food was outstanding! Service was great! For the area the price per person was reasonable. The 16th Floor Ballroom is beautiful at night. Would highly recommend The Sheraton Pentagon City.

The staff at the Sheraton National Hotel (900 S. Orme St.) saved my wedding. My original venue was terrible and out of pure frustration and desperation, I called the Sheraton National to see if they could help me salvage my wedding. The staff opened their arms to me and we ended up having the PERFECT wedding reception. They treated our entire guest list like kings & queens the whole weekend. Plus, the rates were very reasonable and competitive. The Sheraton National really went above & beyond to make our day special and I would highly recommend anyone who wants to have a fantastic wedding in downtown DC hire this venue....you won't be sorry.

I loved everything about this venue. We picked the Sheraton National for it's incredible view of DC on the 16th floor. We are both transplants to the area - I'm from Southern California and my husband is from upstate New York, so it was important for us to incorporate DC into our wedding, knowing all of the guests would be traveling to get here and many had never been to the area. We thought about doing a wedding in DC but that doesn't really give guests the full view of everything. I was shocked at how affordable the Sheraton was and the blocked rate they gave our guests was UNREAL for the area. The hotel itself is so nice and offers shuttles for the guests to the airport and the metro which was awesome for the out-of-towners who wanted to go sightseeing. Betsy was such a pleasure to work with and was willing to answer every little question I had. Our guests were stunned when they got to the top and saw the view. We had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to! When we decided to get out cake elsewhere, Betsy was quick to suggest we could use that portion of the package to do late night snacks for our guests. They loved them and the chef was willing to do whatever we wanted! Even tater tots! The guests raved about the food. It was DELICIOUS, especially the macaroni and cheese bar. Everything was amazing. The service was incredible and everything flowed so perfectly. The room turned out more beautiful than I imagined and everything was flawless. I highly highly recommend this venue.

Our experience with the Sheraton was incredible. The venue itself is a beautiful site for a reception, with its spectacular 16th floor views of the city and its spacious ballroom. The lighting that the Sheraton has -- including uplights in a variety of colors -- adds a special touch. The food is magnificent; I don't think I've ever had tastier wedding food! But what really set the Sheraton apart from other venues is the customer service. Throughout the planning process and the day itself, Betsy Jones was unfailingly professional, kind, and responsive -- she always replied to my emails or phone calls within a day, usually on the same day, and she always had answers to my questions. I have a difficult work schedule, but Betsy was able to help us plan tastings and other wedding-related events around my hours. Working with someone so responsible took a major load of stress off of me during the wedding planning process. You would do well to have your reception at the Sheraton!

We worked with Betsy at the Sheraton National for our wedding reception on 10/23/10 and she was amazing! We booked the Galaxy Ballroom on the 16th floor and Betsy worked with us to keep everything within our budget while still getting everything we wanted. Betsy was so patient working with us right up until a few days before the wedding to get everything finalized, and everything ended up going smoothly, Betsy and her team even put our custom centerpieces together for us, we just dropped off the supplies and gave them instructions - sooo helpful! The food was great, and they were able to handle our special requests for guests with food allergies. The only very minor exception was that at the end of the night, our gifts and the rest of my dinner ended up in my in-law's suite instead of ours (really not an issue - just something we laughed about when my MIL called and asked if we had ordered room service and said she was going to open all our gifts!) Betsy was super accomodating and I recommend both her, and the services of the Sheraton National, to other couples in the DC area looking for an amazing venue with a staff that will go above and beyond to make your reception amazing while keeping you in budget!

I just had my wedding reception in the Galaxy Room which is located on the top floor, amazing view of D.C. by the way. I must say that the Sheraton National has exceeded my expectations and made my wedding day a memorable one! I'd like to thank the amazing staff, especially the Director of Catering, Donna Vaughn, that coordinated the entire event from start to finish. Everything was perfect; the custom lighting, floral decorations, linens, chairs, I'd email Donna and she'd get back to me the same day (as a nervous bride I had peace of mind!). I meet with her at least 5 times before the wedding we would go over the theme of the wedding color schemes, food, etc. The best part of it all is that I stayed within my budget thanks to Donna and her amazing vendors. The tasting was excellent. All my guest complimented on the professionalism of the staff that night. The bar was excellent especially when it came to serving beverages and alcohol to our guests, I've been to events were the bartender fills up the cup with ice and not much alcohol or wine. Everything was perfect no complaints! The hotel is very elegant, innovated, clean, friendly environment, I love the complimentary Star bucks coffee, the rooms are modern with clean crisp sheets, large plasma T.V. The Sheraton National is an excellent hotel to host an event. I highly recommend this hotel and I will continue to use their services in the future.

The Sheraton National met all of our expectations. They made us feel like royalty from the start of the day and really made us feel like it was our special day. The hotel catering coordinator is professional, flexible and very organized. The views from the top floor ballroom speak for themselves and all of our guest were amazed. The Sheraton National is an amazing place to have your reception you wont be disappointed!

After receiving several quotes from many area hotels that were out of our budget, Betsy Jones at the Sheraton National, was the only contact who asked me what my budget was and who literally said; "Let's make it work with your budget." She is the utmost professional and we were truly blessed to work with her and her team. We felt so welcomed. The staff was extremely helpful. The view from the Galaxy Ballroom is fantastic. The staff staged our wedding decorations better than we had envisioned.
