Team Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax tags their way to victory!

The gang at the Hilton Garden Inn Fairfax took a few moments out of their busy work day to put the team of the Hampton Inn Dulles South in their rightful place - second ; ) Meeting up for a friendly competition of laser tag, the HGI Team crushed Hampton Inn Dulles South in round 1, a game of Team Against Team. In round 2, a game of Pink Panther had some system difficulties which disappointed both teams although they allowed the opponents to gain the upper hand. Ending the day in a tie, both teams have vowed to meet again in July and this time, the stakes will be higher, involving more than just bragging rights. Stay posted for the latest!

The Hilton Garden Inn Team included operatives featured here left to right: 00 Steve, El Tigre, Princess Space Cadet, Souperman and Timmy Neutron (Boy Blunder.)

Fall In Love: Elizabeth and Ryan, September 19, 2009

Elizabeth and Ryan were a very easy going couple and a lot of fun to work with. Their wedding day was a mild fall September afternoon and was perfect for a wedding! Before the ceremony at Grace Presbyterian Church, they got ready at the hotel and did a "first sighting" photo shoot.

They took some photos in and around the church before a bubble send-off and a limo ride to the hotel.

Everything in the Providence Ballroom was set in pale shades of green with autumn flowers and fall flair. Table cloths, napkins with ribbon ties and chair covers with sashes were provided by Gala Cloths by Dulaney.

After their first dance and champagne toast, they enjoyed a delicious buffet including:
Dijon-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Wild Mushrooms
Mahi Mahi with Tropical Fruit Salsa
Chicken stuffed with Rice and Walnuts in Pomegranate Cream

After cutting the cake, Ryan and Elizabeth danced the night away!

Best wishes to Elizabeth and Ryan for a long and happy marriage!

Garden Update from May 29, 2010

Hi Everyone!
This is Laura, Catherine's intern. I just wanted to share a few photos with you that I took in the garden over the weekend. The hibiscus flowers just came in last week, so be sure to look for them in the pictures, they are gorgeous! In addition to the pictures of the beautiful hibiscus flowers, I took a few shots from different angles of the fountain (which looked quite refreshing on that hot day), the arbor, and various other colorful flowers and plants around the patio. I hope you all enjoy the photos and be sure to stop by to see the new addition to the garden next time you come by the HGI Fairfax!
