Marriott Washingtonian Center Announces New Ballroom

The Lakeside Ballroom at Gaithersburg Marriott will be completed in March 2013.

Marriott Washingtonian Center is working on a new venue for parties big and small.

The Gaithersburg hotel announced Monday its new Lakeside Ballroom, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a private terrace overlooking the lake that anchors the Rio Washingtonian Center shopping, dining and entertainment complex.

“The new ballroom embraces the natural beauty that surrounds Gaithersburg Marriott," Gaithersburg Marriott General Manager Sara Moore said in a statement. "When the Lakeside Ballroom is completed in March 2013, no other venue in the region will rival its sophisticated charm and exclusive amenities.” 

The ballroom, which combines meeting and event space, features a 672 square-foot pre-function area, 2,700-square foot ballroom and 2,000-square foot outdoor terrace.

The hotel is already accepting Lakeside Ballroom and terrace reservations for spring 2013 events, including wedding celebrations, anniversary parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, client receptions, board retreats and business meetings.

Ballroom is a nice idea and the design is good but what is always blah and throws the low ends spaces far from high end spaces is the little difference: the chairs! if you put those cheap looking chairs with lack of style and taste into even good nice expensive space you end up with cheap results. They should invest in better chairs. It is a little expense that goes a looooooooooong way! There are those bamboo looking chairs that you see at governor's palaces and other places of high end like white hosue etc.. and they only cost a fraction more and make huge difference. Why don't you upgrade and make the statement and bring good taste into that space? you went so far... go the last few yards!

Hello Jay, and thank you for your comment. The comfort of guests at Gaithersburg Marriott Washington Center was a primary consideration during the design of the new Lakeside Ballroom and selection of its décor and furnishings. If you are considering the Lakeside Ballroom as a venue for an event, we will be pleased to have you tour the new space when it is completed.

Those chairs I think you may be referring to are called Chafari Chairs, they do make a lot of difference but almost no event location keeps them in stock because they damage easily and they are a lot more expensive that the normal chairs that many hotels and event locations stock. The best bet for anyone considering an event that wants these chairs is an event rental company such as Premier Event Rentals in Frederick who I know stock them. I hope that the Marriott will consider a tour for event professionals as soon as the new space is ready. Thanks! Chris, Candlelight Floral Designs.
