must tell you what an incredible staff you have at The John
Marshall. Their cordiality and helpfulness made the evening so very
special. Every single staff person, from servers to housekeepers spoke to
me, inquiring if they could help me in any way. Would you please express my
appreciation to every one of them?" - Anne 5/11/13
was in attendance at the Virginia Communications Hall of Fame event on April
11th. The John Marshall is a spectacular setting, our meals were wonderful and
the staff is so courteous.
wanted to particularly thank one young gentleman named Peyton... He found my purse and brought it
to me. I also had allowed the battery on my phone/camera die. He
not only loaned me a charger but also "schooled" me on how to reduce
battery usage on my smart phone.
A big round of applause to the whole staff for a
very wonderful and memorable event! 4/25/13

What I was not expecting was the wonderful level of service and professionalism exhibited by your entire staff. The wait staff in particular was some of the best I have ever encountered. They were all extremely courteous and helpful but the young man who took care of our table was truly exceptional. Please tell him as well as the servers and other workers that they were amazing.
