    I recently got married at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Washington DC/Crystal City. The wedding took place on February 2, 2013. The Assistant Director of Catering, Sheila Crayton, was my advocate and planner through the hotel for me event. From the beginning Sheila was amazing and quick to set a meeting for a site tour so we could see the property. I had set up about 4 other appointments at hotels in the area … and I have to tell you that I don’t think there would have been another person that could have made such an impression on me as she did. I ended up sitting with her for about an hour and by the time I was done… I canceled all my other appointments. I canceled them because I knew that there wouldn’t be another person that would take care of me the way I knew she would. AND SHE DID!
    From start to finish, she literally followed through on every promise she made to me the day she met. She made me feel completely comfortable and taken care of. I don’t know how I would have made it without her. I have working in the Hospitality field for over 18 years and I can promise you … the success of every event is the staff you have in house. From the moment I walked in the door, to when I walked down the aisle... to check out… it was perfect! The food was amazing … the Chef and his culinary team did an AMAZING job. Even though I knew I had a little budget compared to most … I knew I could send her more after all was said and done. I can tell you that I have already sent numerous of my own clients to this hotel. All they have to do is talk to Sheila and I know they won’t have to worry about looking for another venue. I also had my event planner talk to her because she is always looking for talented people to work with, and Sheila is the best!
    Chef Jose Urrutia & Chef Vincent Jenkins created such an INCREDIBLE dinner… I actually had guests that were asking for recipes. One of my guests is a chef and took one bite and said… ‘AMAZING CHEF's'
