    I LOVED working with Amber at the DoubleTree! She was very professional and very responsive to all of my questions. I started planning my wedding from Charleston and then moved out of state. Amber responded to all of my emails in a timely manner and answered every question that I had! She made the out of town planning part so easy and less stressful on my part! Definitely above and beyond anything I could have expected! It was absolutely a pleasure to work with Amber.
    The food was fantastic! The room looked great and just like Amber and I had talked about! We were also very impressed with all of the staff that helped out with serving that evening and getting everything up to our room at the end of the night. Very professional and helpful!

    We were sold on the DoubleTree the first time we met the coordinator, Amber. She never disappointed! She was on top of every detail & quick to respond to questions & needs. Our daughter's wedding reception went beautifully. Multiple people complimented the food & staff. We were very satisfied.

    The DoubleTree was the perfect location in every way for our daughters wedding and reception. From the first meeting with Amber and Kate, they were extremely helpful and a total delight to work with. They were enthusiastic and eager to make the day stress free. Any questions were answered very promptly and pleasantly. Their services are priceless. The location could not be more beautiful and the staff was amazing. Every single person we encountered was eager to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Many guest commented that it was an elegant, formal wedding, but did not feel stuffy because the staff was so personal. The food was absolutely fabulous. "Icing on the cake" was the convenience of a venue with luxurious accommodations for the bride and groom as well as out of town guests and even local guests that might choose to stay and extend an unforgettable downtown event. Anyone looking for a first class wedding and reception venue downtown Charleston need look no further. The location, the preparation, the service, the food, the attention to detail are simply perfect. The DoubleTree is everything you are looking for and more, all without the sticker shock one would expect. A special thanks again to the Wedding Specialist, Amber VanPatten for her delightful attitude, tireless preparation, and flawless execution, and to the General Manager, Sergio Roa and all the DoubleTree team for making us feel like royalty.
