It was such a pleasure working with Ashley at the DoubleTree Hilton University Area! From the beginning they were so easy to work with and very flexible. I was impressed when a hard hat tour of the event space was offered while the venue was still being finished and felt that was an added level of service. Ashley really listened and did her very best to accommodate our needs and vision for our day while always taking the time to make sure we were happy along the way. The venue space is super beautiful and with the huge floor to ceiling windows and amazing chandelier, you don't need to add much more to have a fabulous space guaranteed to impress guests. Our experience was terrific and would recommend Ashley and the DoubleTree Hilton University Area to all brides looking for great beauty and value.Sent on 03/16/2017
