We knew before we even got engaged that we wanted to get married at the Hilton on Clearwater Beach. Courtney is our contact person and she is absolutely amazing. Immediately we had a connection with her. She understood our vision and to top it off she and my fiancé are Gator alums, which makes her perfect in his eyes. We had to bring our daughter to our initial appointment and she was very flexible with us and patient as we tried to wrangle a 3 year old on the beach. She was prompt with her estimate and flexible as she could be with dates. We are still in the initial stages of planning, but already I am beyond satisfied with our work with the Hilton staff.
Samantha you are so sweet!! You have such a beautiful family and I am so excited to be working with you!!
We used the Hilton Clearwater for our October wedding, and everything was amazing! As a destination bride, the process of picking vendors who I could not meet with was daunting. While we did fly to Florida the year prior to our wedding to see venues, it was still difficult to know how the year of planning would go when I was so far away and unable to participate in meetings and tastings. Once we saw the Hilton, it was an easy decision to pick it. We wanted a beach ceremony and outdoor reception, and felt the Hilton was modern, beach-y and beautiful. Although my coordinator switched halfway through my engagement, the new coordinator, Courtney, was awesome. She was great about emailing me back and walking me through the wedding day details. She answered all of my questions, even the silly ones, and was completely thorough in providing information. She remained flexible in making changes with me and was always knowledgeable and professional. During the wedding weekend, even though I know she was busy, she took time to meet with me, make sure that I knew what the rehearsal and wedding day would look like, and put any nerves I had at ease. I had very little stress on my wedding day, and that is in large attributed to the awesome team I had behind me at the Hilton. Plus our guests are still raving about the food! If we could do it all over again, we would pick the Hilton Clearwater every time.
Where do I start....I love Courtney Owens and her staff. I cant say enough about them and the hospitability that my husband and I, our family and friends received from the Hilton Beach Hotel. I normally don't five stars but Courtney and her staff when above and beyond to ensure our 10th wedding vow renewal on the beach was everything and more. We are from Boston, Ma and this our first time to Clearwater, Fl and we have never been to the hotel until the date before our event. My mom and wedding planner Tonja took care of everything from the tasting of the food and seeing the venue for us first hand. My mom know how picky I'm about places but all I wanted was our ceremony on the beach. When I tell it was everything and beyond. I have NO complaints from the our ceremony being on the beach, reception, food and our hotel rooms. All of our guest rave about the food and venue and looking forward to coming back for their own family vacation and/or renewing their vows again as well.
The weather held up and everything was beautiful. The staff in dining room and reception was awesome they did a great job which I know is not easy dealing with people day in and out. We even stayed extras days after our event and they were awesome to us given we were already married they make us felt it was our first honeymoon. all over.
If you have plan on having an event and/or wedding there you wont be disappointed. Courtney and her staff are a gem. I love them and her. We even stayed in touch after our event. Courtney is very detail in her response with email and phone calls I don't how she does it but she does an awesome job. She doesn't missed a beat. Cant wait to come back again for vacation love the white sandy beach. This will be our place again to celebrate our anniversary again with the Hilton. Please don't leave Courtney and staff. :) My favorite place now to be in the world.
Love The Gatewoods
Elaine, thank you so much for your kind words!! You are such a beautiful person, thank you for choosing Hilton and sharing your special day with us. You are welcome back any time...don't be a stranger!! :-)
We had an absolutely amazing time at the Hilton! They were so helpful and were able to make the day special and beautiful even with the pouring rain. We would definitely recommend this venue.
We knew we wanted to have our wedding on Clearwater Beach. We grew up in the area and spent a lot of time there together as kids. We went to all of the resorts along the beach and after sitting down with the people at the Hilton, there was no question in our minds that this was the place. They had access to the beach that they could reserve just for us. The could provide the catering we wanted, a place for the rehearsal dinner, a place for the next day brunch and everything else that we needed. Courtney Owens, the Senior Catering Sales Manager did a fabulous job of making sure everything flowed smoothly. That all of our needs were not only catered to, but she anticipated almost everything we could have wanted. She did a great job of ensuring that all of the vendors were coordinated and got everything done and done correctly.
The food at the Hilton was SPECTACULAR!!!! We had our tasting and it was almost impossible to choose because everything tasted so good. The one thing that we recommend that everyone have is the spare rib appetizer. It was AMAZING!
The rooms were nice at the hotel and the price was very good for being summer and right on the beach. Everyone that we talked to was extremely impressed with not only the Hilton, but everyone that they came into contact with at the hotel. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable.
My husband and I got married on May 29, 2015 at the Hilton. We had a beach wedding and reception on the Sandpiper Deck. The staff was unbelievably helpful and very kind. They did everything to ensure our day went smooth and everything was on schedule. They even had a switch of wedding coordinators in the middle of my wedding planning, but all went smooth. They were responsive and always made time to speak with me when I had questions or concerns. This was an amazing place to get married and all of our guests were impressed with the venue. Thank you Hilton for making our day so memorable!!!
Congratulations, Michelle!! We wish you a life full of happiness together!!
Everyone was so accommodating and helpful. It was an amazing experience
We were just married at the Hilton Clearwater Beach on April 25, 2015. We loved absolutely everything about this amazing experience! Courtney Owens - the Senior Catering Sales Manager, was a pleasure to work with! We live in California so I was stressed about planning from 3000 miles away, but she really helped put me at ease and answered all of my emails quickly and completely. Christina Pelosi worked on our room block and was extremely accommodating when relatives decided to book after our block of 30 rooms was full. She made sure my grandma got a room and that everyone had the room they wanted. Karin Beaudry with Confetti Events was my day-of coordinator and she and he intern were extremely helpful in making sure the day went off without a hitch.
The whole experience was everything I dreamed it would be! I highly recommend having your ceremony and reception here at the Hilton! The flow from the beach ceremony, to the Water's Edge Deck for cocktail hour, to the Waters Edge Ballroom for the reception was superb. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day - I only wish I could have had 4 more hours at the reception to enjoy every detail. Thank you so much to everyone at the Hilton for making us feel so special on the most important day of our lives!
The Hilton was such a wonderfulu venue for our wedding. The location and hotel were perfect. Melissa was our wedding contact originally and we just loved her! She got a new job about 1 month from our big day and the transition to Courtney was seemless and we just loved her as well! The hotel worked to accommodate all of our wishes for our guests, wedding, and reception. People loved the food, beach, and atmosphere.
You are so sweet Meredith! We LOVED working with you! Best wishes!
For any bride getting married in Clearwater, I HIGHLY recommend the Hilton Clearwater Beach. The venue is gorgeous, reasonably priced and the staff was amazing. All of our guests had the best time and are still raving about the delicious food and great service. We worked with Melissa from start to finish, and she made the entire process SO fun, easy and stress-free. She was very responsive and happy to help with our MANY questions :) I will miss working with her!
My wife and I were married on Clearwater Beach at the Hilton Hotel and everything went perfectly! We worked closely with Melissa Rowjohn and her team for seven months prior to our wedding and they did their best to make sure that everything went perfectly. We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding ceremony on the beach and the reception on the Sandpiper Deck. The food was amazing, the venue was spectacular and the customer service was outstanding! Melissa and her team were attentive to our needs and did a great job helping make our day special. Thanks again!
Melissa and Aly at the Hilton are amazing people! I could have never planned a destination wedding without these two wonderful ladies. They were super responsive to emails during the entire planning process. Whenever I called (like a super crazy person) they were there to talk to me off my ledge. My wedding was PERFECT - and I'm not one to use that word loosely. I think for the first time in 30 years I have zero complaints. The food was great, the location was great and everything was super organized. There were some weather concerns but we took our chances and everything was beautiful. I couldn't have picked a better place for a destination wedding. I haven't heard a single complaint from any guest - they not only had a great time at the wedding but a great time at the hotel in general.
(Loved Dave A. (and the others that attended the wedding whose names I didn't catch), Chris P. and Rochelle - what a great staff this Hilton has!)
Melissa and Confetti events made our wedding stress free and very enjoyable. The wait staff made our guests feel welcomed and went out of their way to please us as well as our family and friends. The food was amazing and the service was friendly, prompt and professional. The location was perfect and close to shopping, restaurants, and plenty of water sports. Melissa Rowjohn upgraded our venue to the Sandpiper deck compliments of the Hilton. We are still receiving compliments from our guests, family and friends on what a wonderful time they had at the Hilton during their stay for our wedding. Many of them are planning to make this an annual vacation destination. They also provided us with their preferred vendors list which also made planning our wedding so simple and we loved the DJ and Photobooth vendors. Hilton and Clearwater Beach we love you!!!
Absolutely wonderful! Melissa and her team are amazing. They are extremely friendly, organized, professional and very responsive to every detail (big or small) regarding my son's destination wedding. With this being our first visit to the Hilton I couldn't have asked for more. The location is beautiful, the food was fantastic and the presentation of it was beautiful, and the service was superb. The weather was beautiful and the pictures are amazing. The Vendors that were suggested were also amazing. The hotel is nice having various bars and food choices to select from.
We left with wonderful memories we will cherish forever for a perfect beach wedding! Thank you so much Melissa and your team for making dreams come true!
Absolutely amazing!!! Even though we experienced some crazy beach weather, Melissa and the Hilton made our day perfect! Melissa is so professional and super easy to work with! Thanks Hilton for such a beautiful venue for the most important day of Nick and my life!!!!
Melissa and the Hilton were absolutely FABULOUS to work with! The venue was perfect and Melissa was so attentive and helpful. Everything--- EVERY DETAIL--- turned out even better than expected. It was the most perfect day!
