If you’re looking for the perfect venue for a holiday party in the D.C./Northern Virginia area, you’ve found it in The Watermark Hotel!

Our all-suite luxury hotel within Tysons, Virginia’s Capital One Center is an ideal choice for a festive gathering, what with our own fine on-site event space as well as easy access to larger-yet facilities within the same complex.

The Watermark Hotel in the Capital One Center: A Premier Option for Holiday Events in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area

Whether a small celebration with friends or a full-scale office party, mark the holidays with good company and good cheer right here at The Watermark Hotel!

Between our well-appointed function venue, our attentive coordinating services, and the convenience of our upscale accommodations (should you wish to take advantage of them), we’re proud to stand as one of the best spots to hold events in the D.C. metro area.

Our Watermark Hotel Event Venue: Ideal for a Holiday Party

Alongside our 300 luxury residential suites and on-site amenities, we maintain a 1,500-square-foot room for meetings, celebrations, and other special events: Elevate. This snazzy and versatile space has an elegant, airy feel, with lovely cityscape sightlines out the generous floor-to-ceiling windows and fully equipped A/V technology.

Elevate provides a flexible and welcoming floorplan for a holiday happening, and welcomes as many as 100 guests.

A Larger Event Space Ready at Hand: Capital One Hall

If you’re looking to throw a grand-scale holiday party with more attendees, you’re still in luck: Our hotel sits a stone’s throw from the state-of-the-art theater complex of Capital One Hall, a neighbor of ours here within the Capital One Center in the heart of Tysons, Virginia.

Besides presenting a full calendar of concerts, live comedy, dance performances, and other entertainment, Capital One Hall makes itself available for private events, and is a natural choice for a big holiday shindig in Northern Virginia, just a hop, skip, and a jump from the nation’s capital.

Perks to a Holiday Party at The Watermark Hotel

Choose The Watermark Hotel for your holiday-celebration venue in the D.C. area, and you’ll not only enjoy the attractive hub of our Elevate room, but also the full and dedicated attention of our staff, ready to assist with all the coordinating and logistical details.

And you and your guests have the option of extending the holiday festivities into an overnight experience, thanks to our resplendent luxury accommodations, which range from King Studios and Junior Suites to lavish, 1,200-square-foot residential suites equipped with private balconies.

Along with catering options, you’ll also enjoy the culinary pleasures of our on-site, izakaya-style hotel restaurant: the lauded Wren, putting the spotlight on the exceptional cookery and creative vision of Executive Chef Yo Matsuzaki. Situated in the lobby of our 11th floor, Wren ranks among the most exciting dining destinations in the NoVa region, and a meal here—or an unhurried nightcap—can be a seamlessly integrated highlight of your Capital One Center holiday party itinerary!

Holiday Events in Northern Virginia & the D.C. Metro Area

Another reason why The Watermark Hotel is such a natural choice for a D.C.-area holiday party is the abundance of seasonal festivities and events already underway in and around the region.

Holiday Attractions & Festivities in Washington, D.C.

That regional holiday merriment certainly extends to the nation’s capital itself, host to a slew of seasonal traditions that at this point are downright iconic. Admire the National Christmas Tree looming over President’s Park and flanked by smaller conifers decked out in ornaments sourced from all 56 states and territories of the U.S. There’s nightly live music around the National Christmas Tree throughout the holiday season. Near at hand on the White House Ellipse stands the National Menorah, the world’s largest, with a candle lit for each day of Chanukah.

And don’t forget about the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, holding its own over on the Capitol’s West Lawn!

From November 17th through December 23rd, meanwhile, D.C.’s Downtown Holiday Market draws shoppers (and gawkers) from near and far. You can also head over to the United States Botanic Garden to enjoy the splendor of its Season’s Greetings installation, serving up holiday lights, poinsettias, and other dazzlements from November 23rd through New Year’s Day.

The Holidays In Tysons, Virginia

With accommodations at The Watermark Hotel, you’re within easy reach of Washington, D.C., but you’ll also find plenty of holiday goings-on even closer to your home-away-from-home with us.

You’ll find, for instance, a jampacked roster of holiday music and performances just steps away in Capital One Hall. There are multiple renditions of one of the world’s most beloved Christmastime stories, for one thing, what with the NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet on December 3rd, Ravel Dance’s The Nutcracker on December 9th, and the Virginia National Ballet’s The Nutcracker on December 22nd.

Then there’s Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith’s Christmas Live in Concert on December 4th, the Voce Chamber Singers’ Christmas Coronation on December 9th, and Harmonize the Holidays by the Vienna-Falls Chorus on December 10th.

On December 20th, Capital One Hall hosts a very special performance of Handel’s Messiah courtesy of the National Philharmonic, presided over by Maestro Piotr Gajewski and featuring soloists Aundi Marie Moore (soprano), Lucia Bradford (mezzo soprano), Norman Shankle (tenor), and Jorell Williams (baritone).

Over at the Tysons Corner Center mall, meantime, the festive season gets underway with a bang on November 17th during the Holiday Kick-Off Celebration, which’ll feature live music and dance, s’mores, a hot chocolate bar, a holiday popup market, and more. And photos with the big man himself—you know, Santa Claus—are on offer at Tysons Corner Center through December 24th, in case you’re staying at The Watermark Hotel with kiddos.
