About DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh-Brownstone-University

The DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh-Brownstone-University is a hotel with a ballroom where couples can enjoy their wedding in the Raleigh, North Carolina region. This venue’s ballrooms are the perfect combination of classic and modern, with carpeting, recessed lights and room dividers, as well as unique semi-circle architecture on some of the ceilings. This hotel is located 12 minutes from the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can max out their guest lists at 500 friends and family when they host their wedding at the DoubleTree by Hilton Raleigh-Brownstone-University. The Presidential Ballroom is the largest space in this venue, ready to accommodate all of the guests for a seated dinner and dancing. This room, with a neutral color palette for decorating and wallpaper and carpeting for class, can be divided into smaller rooms for more intimate receptions, out-of-sight spaces, or numerous events. This allows couples to set up for their ceremony and reception in one location. Other great locations for these events include the hotel’s Harvest Grille or the grand Caucus Room, capable of seating up to 170 guests for a banquet dinner.

Services Offered
Not only can couples host their ceremony and reception at this wedding venue, they can also host a bridal shower or engagement party on this property. Guests will remember the fun of the wedding day, but also the convenience of having onsite parking and overnight accommodations. The venue’s staff also assists with lighting and sound services, event planning and setup. Chairs, tables, and linens are also included for couples.

Accommodation
Couples and guests will find peace of mind in having comfortable accommodations just upstairs. Guest rooms and suites both come with cozy bedding and contemporary decor. Amenities in the guest rooms include cable television with premium channels, a clock radio, and high-speed Internet. The suites include upgrades such as a mini refrigerator and a microwave. In the suites, couples will also find a private balcony from which to proclaim their love, or reenact Romeo and Juliet.

    Originally holding my wedding at a hotel wasn't my first choice but with having all of our friends and family from out of town it was the option that made sense. Now, I can't imagine getting married anywhere else and having it be more amazing. The way they are able to transform the banquet rooms to become so beautiful, magical and dreamlike is beyond my comprehension and truely art. But the best part of booking with Doubletree Brownstone was Nicole Dones. Without her I don't know how I would have managed planning a wedding. She is so kind, patient and understanding of every request. She was amazing when it came to coordinating the vision we had for the rooms, managing our room block and answering the millions of questions we had. For example, the night before the wedding we snuck down to look at the reception room and we realized the dance floor was smaller than we liked. I sent her a quick email (at 9pm!) and she responded immediately that it was no problem to adjust and sure enough next day it was perfect! Little touches like providing a bridal suite to get ready, bringing water and cookies up to us, providing us a room with water and hors d'oeuvres to enjoy after pictures and before we went into the reception, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne in our room at the end of the night is what made the day so special.
    The package they provide for the complete wedding is also what drew me to the hotel, such as including uplighting and linens. You get to go to CE Rental right down the street and choose from tons of linens.They were so nice quality and beautiful that my guests were amazed! I was even able to choose a purple sequin option for my cake table that was stunning. And finally the food was the icing on the cake. The food was absolutely phenomenal and multiple guests commented it was the best food they've had at a wedding. But best of all was how wonderful the serving staff and bartenders were- so kind and sweet. Book this place for your wedding!!!

    Nicole Dones,

    I cannot express in this email how impressed I was and continue to be with the work of you and your staff. You were so creative, but also fiscally aware of the needs of my wedding party and I. What a fabulous combination! The venue, the staff, the room accommodations and the food were all perfect! Even with one minor problem, we had you fixed it and made it all look so easy, but I know how much work went in to making this the perfect Wedding/Cocktail Hour/ Reception ever!

    Your professionalism, work ethic and dedication to ensure that I had the WEDDING of my dreams, did not go unnoticed and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.



    You did a fabulous job of planning, presenting, managing and keeping me on task during a difficult time of me grieving the loss of my mother. You took care of my every need and want, just like my mother would have if she were here.

    I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Ms. Darlene our server during the reception she was the best.

    Nicole, having you and your guidance during this time has meant so much to me, you are truly a wonderful Consultant and I thank you for the GREAT work you do.


    Monica Lucas- Shabazz
