The Chimney Stack

The historic red brick Chimney Stack is the hotel’s signature architectural marker, which can be seen from miles around. Built in 1932, the structure towers 130 ft. into the air and features a dramatic 12-person function room at the bottom with a glass ceiling that looks to the sky above. This event venue is ideal for hosting high-profile business meetings, exclusive client dinners, and intimate reunions.

Executive Conference Suites

Flooded with natural light from views of the historic Georgetown neighborhood, Executive Conference Suites offer luxury meeting venues that go beyond the typical boardroom. Each of the hotel’s five suites span 1,100 square feet and feature one and one-half spacious bathrooms, contemporary furnishings, and a penthouse-inspired layout.

Conference set-up in a suite

A memorable and enriching stay can extend well beyond our hotels. That’s why The Ritz-Carlton proudly offers Impact Experiences, providing inspiring opportunities for our guests to contribute to the local community. Impact Experiences are compelling social and environmental impact activities where there is one constant – each program makes a lasting and authentic difference.

Impact Experiences offers on-property activities that can be incorporated into the conference agenda during lunch breaks, receptions, and coffee breaks, including:

  • Partnering with the hotel’s culinary team to prepare the ingredients for a regionally adapted dish for donation to a local hunger relief organization;
  • Assembling school supplies and art materials in backpacks for donation to students whose academic success is threatened by poverty;
  • Collaborating in teams to assemble emergency preparedness kits for shipping to a disaster relief facility or community organization;
  • Designing and creating greetings and birthday cards for children in a local pediatric healthcare facility or children’s organization.
  • Impact Hour is a platform for leaders from The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints partner organizations to showcase how they are successfully addressing social and environmental issues.

 

Additionally, Signature Impact Experiences invite our group guests to take part in an off-site volunteer activity, unique to the destination.

Historical Impact, Today

Georgetown, overlooking the Potomac River, has played an important role in U.S. history dating back to the 17th century. Group guests can help preserve the past by restoring and revitalizing the C&O Canal National Historical Park. Through painting and debris removal projects, guests can help celebrate the canal that established Georgetown as the country’s shipping center and now offers residents and visitors alike a peaceful place for recreation.

Please contact your meetings and special events professional for details on how Impact Experiences can be matched to your group.

Meetings and events at The Ritz-Carlton are carefully designed to create an unparalleled guest experience while protecting our natural resources. Together with our property-based Ritz-Carlton Environmental Action Conservation Teams (REACT) you and your attendees can support our efforts to reduce our environmental imprint and make a meaningful difference. Within our hotels, we reduce energy and water usage, offer a linen and terry reuse program, and utilize environmentally preferable cleaning products. Our meeting venues support a sustainable future by offering recycled paper products and pens, water service options, organic and local food, and sustainable seafood options.
