WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) - Events may come and go, but a week-long wine celebration is not one to miss. From novices to aficionados, locals and visitors alike can sip their way through the Nation's Capital during DC Wine Week from October 12 to 19, 2013. While it may be hard to decide which vintages to sample and which events to attend, choosing a hotel for the trip is considerably easier thanks to the JW Marriott Washington, DC's central location and luxury appointments.

DC Wine Week is in its third year and shows no signs of slowing down. Its mission is twofold. On one hand, it's an opportunity to enjoy and learn about wine. On the other, it's a time to support local wineries, shops, restaurants, and wine bars in downtown Washington, DC. This translates to sampling paired menus, tasting special pours and experiencing hosted themed events.

Staying at this Washington, DC hotel for the celebration puts guests in the center of all the action, as it's close to everything from landmarks like the National Mall to the museums. Plus the JW Marriott enjoys a longstanding affiliation with wine tasting, thanks to its JWM Wine Club, which delivers carefully curated selections -- along with tasting notes and suggested food pairings -- to members.

All this may be enough to make the JW Marriott Washington, DC stand out from other hotels near the White House, but it's just the beginning. With 737 guestrooms and 35 suites outfitted with luxury bedding, fresh décor and technological amenities like HD televisions, each room is as comfortable as it is inspiring. And the hotel's 37,000 square feet of event space make it one of Washington, DC's most sought-after event venues.

Guests will have the chance to experience this firsthand as they participate in one of Washington, DC's tastiest events this October. And that's something worth toasting any day.
