    Highly Recommend Doubletree by Hilton Berkeley Marina

    Doubletree by Hilton Berkeley is a wonderful venue to celebrate your Wedding Day. The Venue is in a prime location only about 15-20 minutes from San Francisco and there are amazing photo opportunities of the San Francisco Bay Area during Sunset as your backdrop. The staff there will take care of your every need, especially Natasha, who was there to cater to every need of the Bride and Groom. It was especially helpful for their staff to help set up the decorative items for the Wedding Reception, which doesn't happen at a lot of Wedding Venues. The most important factor was that myself (the Wedding Coordinator), the Bride, and the Groom felt very stress free because Doubletree took care of everything and if we needed something at the last second, they were very quick to take care of that need as well.

    I highly recommend the Doubletree by Hilton Berkeley Marina!

    Beautiful Venue at the Marina & Excellent Events Director

    We thoroughly enjoyed having our wedding at the DoubleTree in Berkeley Marina. Natasha Norman was our main point of contact all throughout the process and she was phenomenal. She was kind, helpful, professional and communicative right from the start. She worked with us to plan and organize our micro wedding of 11, and helped our families get the best accommodations during their stay. She patiently provided consistent and clear details about the package options and worked hard to make sure we got everything we wanted and needed for our wedding. She also communicated with our vendors and ensured that the set-up process on the day of went smoothly, which helped to relieve a lot of stress. We could not have been happier with how it went. The breakfast staff also offered us standout service - they even helped us get breakfast for our party 10 minutes before the breakfast time ended.
    The entire venue space is perfect for a wedding (whether it's outdoors or in). We'd originally planned for everything to be outside, as it's a beautiful outdoor spot, but it was forecasted to rain. Even though we ended up in the ballroom, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise - the floor-length windows ensured that we still got a beautiful view of the marina and lots of natural light, and it was spacious enough for all of our activities (ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner). Our families were very pleased with the event, as well as with their stay. It was also very helpful to have the bridal suite & connecting room the night before the wedding - and having one complimentary night included in our package was even better. Overall, it's high value and quite affordable for all that you get in their packages. Highly recommend!

    They saved the day for our rehearsal dinner!!

    Natasha Norman and the Berkeley Boathouse truly saved the day! My husband and I were originally supposed to be married in May 2020 (you obviously know how that went…or DIDN’T go more importantly!) We initially had a different venue for our rehearsal dinner for our ‘original’ wedding, and they had honestly been a bit difficult and unreliable to work with even pre-pandemic. We were very fortunate to see the writing on the wall in March 2020 and decided to push our wedding out to October 16th, 2021 and were able to retain our venue and all vendors. However, when our new date began inching closer, we found our initial rehearsal dinner venue was even more unreliable and non-communicative than pre-pandemic!! That venue eventually fell through completely and so I decided to reach out to the Berkeley Boathouse restaurant at The Doubletree by Hilton Berkeley Marina, as this hotel was where myself + groom, much of the wedding party, and many guests were already staying. Natasha (Director of Catering & Conference Services) responded quickly and offered a tour of the restaurant and introduction to options. My MIL and I toured and found the restaurant to be absolutely beautiful and Natasha did a wonderful job of working with us to feel comfortable with a budget proposal. We decided almost instantly after our meeting that this was the place! The night of, I was delighted to see Natasha there to greet us at the start of our event! She was warm, welcoming, and extremely professional throughout the entire planning process. Our night went absolutely perfectly- the bartender was friendly and wonderful with our guests, the DIY taco bar was a hit, and guests could not get enough of the unbelievable October sunset from the venue (it was so beautiful everyone went outside for pictures!) I could not have been happier with how the event turned out.

    In terms of the hotel itself, the rooms were comfortable and clean, staff friendly and helpful, and the hotel and the location are just beautiful! We had many waterfront morning coffee walks and enjoyed the gorgeous views. Side note, staying in the hotel for several days means I had several meals at the Boathouse, and the food and service were excellent!
