Policies

We're here to ensure a flawless execution on your big day. Please read through our policies below.

Request for Proposal

Service Charges & Taxes

All prices are per person and subject to customary 25% taxable service charge and 10% DC sales tax.

Décor & Entertainment

Your wedding at The Mayflower Hotel, Autograph Collection®, will include white or ivory cotton twill floor-length linens and napkins. Any special décor, such as Chivari chairs, centerpieces, specialty linens, party favors, or entertainment may be priced separately upon request. We will be happy to assist you with any of these requests.  

Taste Panel

Your Certified Wedding Planner will invite you to a complimentary menu tasting two months prior to your wedding. Your tasting is offered for up to four guests to sample a maximum of two menu items per course. Cocktail Reception items are not included. Tasting will be scheduled during non-peak meal hours.  

Food & Beverage Minimum

A total food and beverage minimum will apply to your wedding. This minimum is determined based upon the event space you require (or desire) and a minimum package price per person. This minimum may vary based upon the day of the week and date of interest. Final guarantee numbers of attendees of a catered function shall be provided to Event Manager three business days prior to the event. We reserve space sufficient to accommodate your function. When you contract for function space, it is removed from our inventory and considered sold. Therefore, it is difficult and costly to re-market facilities when you change dates, reduce the number of guests, or cancel without adequate written notice.  

Miscellaneous Charges

Some additional charges may be incurred while planning your wedding. These charges may include, but are not limited to: Vendor meals for your band, photographer and videographer, as well as the necessary power requirements for your band and/or DJ.

 

Deposit
A non-refundable deposit of 35% of the estimated cost is due at contract signing to confirm your date. Your additional deposits may range from 25-50% of your total estimated charges, based on your event date. A second deposit may also be requested. Your final balance is due seven business days prior to your event. Acceptable methods of payment are Credit Cards, Cashier's Check, Certified Check or Cash. Unfortunately, we do not accept personal checks.

Coat Check

Should the weather require coat check, we will provide the appropriate number of staff to accommodate your guests. The charge is $3.00 per person, based on the final guaranteed number of guests.

 

Reduced Guest Room Rates

The Mayflower Hotel is pleased to offer reduced guest room rates for Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday night stays. These special rates are based upon availability and your projected number of guests. Room rates do not include breakfast or taxes.

 

Gift Bags/Baskets

If you choose to provide your out-of-town guests with a welcome bag/basket, we will be delighted to deliver these to your guests' rooms after they check in. A delivery fee of $2.00 per bag/basket will apply. Please have bags/baskets individually labeled with your guests' names as noted on your final hotel reservation list.

The maximum points earned are 50,000 points per event. Points earned will be applied after the event. Please provide your Marriott Rewards nine-digit account number, name, address and phone number.
