As fall gets into full swing, meeting planners are working tirelessly to secure event space for last minute 2016 meetings in addition to their first quarter programs for next year. The Hyatt Place Washington DC/US Capitol, located in downtown Washington, DC just north of the US Capitol, knows that every meeting is important, no matter the size and is offering a special promotion geared to small and medium size events. The hotel is managed by Crescent Hotels & Resorts, an operator of over 100 hotels throughout North America, including 14 in the Washington, DC area.
Hyatt Place Washington DC/US Capitol – Meeting Space
“Those planning small to medium size events and meetings love the size of the Hyatt Place Washington DC/US Capitol,” said Ryan Cimei, General Manager. Cimei credits much of the success of the their small meeting program to the fact that, at just 200 guest rooms, those planning smaller events do not feel like a small fish in a big pond. Cimei added, “Even meetings as small as ten to twenty guest rooms receive the attention of the entire staff, and keeps these planners coming back again and again.”

The hotel offers the key amenities those planning smaller meeting are looking for. For example, complimentary Wi-Fi, business center with printing options, built-in break stations in both meeting rooms that total 1600 square feet, flexible catering menus, audio visual services and a dedicated meeting specialist are among the amenities focused on meeting attendees. “Our meeting planners love working with our meeting specialists. Having a single point of contact is so crucial to them,” said Cimei. He added, “Our complimentary hot breakfast for all guests is a great way for meeting attendees on business travel to save money.”
“We feel it’s good to give our meeting planners choices,” said Cimei. “We also understand that many who plan smaller meetings have responsibilities outside the meeting planning arena so we make the process stress-free.” Not only can planners submit a meeting request online, the hotel also offers the option of per person meeting packages starting at $85 per day so budgeting costs is easy.
“When we opened our doors just two years ago, it was like opening a flood gate,” said Cimei. “With our downtown location, surrounded by so many corporate offices like NPR and Sirius XM, and government agencies such as the Department of Justice, ATF, and GSA, meeting planners were looking for a hotel just our size.” Being located just two blocks from Metrorail connects the property to all points in the Washington, DC area, including Union Station, just one stop from the hotel, and National Airport. Additionally, its location in the NoMa district, surrounds the hotel with restaurants, shopping, and entertainment options, to keep meeting attendees busy after the work day is through.
