I looked at this place to get married and it was beautiful. The view is absolutely gorgeous. The price is more than our budget could handle, but it looked like an awesome place to have your reception!

Business Response:

Owner We feel our prices are competitive with those of far less interesting venues. Friday, Sunday, weekday, and low season prices are very reasonable.

There is no better view of Washington, DC than from Top of the Town. However, for the challenges they present, it is not worth it. The staff turns over quite regularly, so the service can have serious gaps. You also are limited as to some of your vendors, and you cannot store anything at the site. The 'dance floor' they put down looks unsafe to me (tiles did not fit toegther exactly) and there is one way in and out...by a smallish elevator. If you had a lot of guests arriving at the same time, you would have a lot of people waiting.

owner Since this review was written there has been virtually no staff turnover. Our approved vendor list is now very extensive and we now have a different dance floor. We do store items for clients on the site but not overnight. Our large glass-enclosed elevator handles 12 guests per non-stop trip to the penthouse. Having been on the elevator with many guests as they approach the top, their response is invariably "WOW!"

This is an excellent and memorable place to have a Washington DC wedding reception if you have a lot of guests coming from out of town. It is tucked back in an area by the Iwo Jima memorial and you take a private elevator up to the top of the building. It looks over DC. There are a couple downsides. The managers here tend to book weddings on top of each other which is difficult to do with an elevator and catering. If the weather is bad, the view is a little less scenic but still very neat. You have plenty of parking, which is rare, but I think you have to hire a valet. Photos turn out great after the wedding because the whole room is enclosed with glass. If you can have the last wedding of the day, you are all set here. Otherwise you will feel very rushed.

Business Response:

owner We only allow 1 event during the day and 1 per evening. Valet is required if the event is very large.
