  • Venue Spotlight: Washington House Hotel and Restaurant

    A Historic Spin on Your Next Event

     
    FROM THE Spring 2017 ISSUE
     

The Washington House Hotel and Restaurant and Sellersville Theater 1894 have been a refuge for Pennsylvanians since the original farmhouse was built in the 1700s. Over the past 100 years, the property has transformed from a simple farmhouse into what it is today, an 11-room boutique hotel and 340-seat theater. “Every inch of the two buildings have been renovated, some areas more than once,” says Elayne Brick, proprietor and co-owner with husband William Quigley. “Our latest renovation was to reopen the hotel above the restaurant with modern facilities.” To modernize the hotel, they added a foyer, a conference room and redesigned the upper floors to offer five standard rooms with baths, a wheelchair-accessible room as well as three Queen suites, one King suite and one Tower suite that has access to a 360-degree view from the Tower Observatory.

For events, the conference room can accommodate up to 12 for small business meetings, its dining rooms can accommodate between 13 to 40 people and the theater seats up to 300 (with the option to add more space) for a meeting or presentation. “We offer a beautiful, comfortable venue for any occasion and an attentive staff that will go out of their way to make planning and execution enjoyable for all,” says Brick.

Marilyn Sukonick-Zeff’s story starts in a Barnes & Noble. On a whim, many moons ago—as she says—she took her two children for story hour at the national bookstore and noticed there would be a tarot card reader coming in to promote selling the cards. The experience intrigued her so much she asked for a private reading with the woman on a different date.
