I have no hesitation about giving Double Tree 5 stars for our wedding as they were amazing!Sent on 01/07/2015
Katelyn Freeman was our contact at the hotel and she was absolutely the best. Quick to respond, open to crazy ideas (like getting married on the dance floor), and personalization of our package... she made the day go so smoothly and was a dream to work with! She met with us several times before the wedding and answered my many e-mail questions with no complaints!
The food for our reception was great and I heard a lot of compliments from our guests. The linens that came with the package were gorgeous and was very easy to pick out and use. All of the staff who worked the event as servers, bartenders, etc were so nice to work with and so helpful to making the wedding day flow. The hotel has a closet of centerpiece items that we took advantage of and personalized as well.
Our hotel room was also very nice and a perfect way to end the night!
In the end, if I had to do my wedding over again- I wouldn't hesitate to use Double Tree and would do everything the same! They treated me like their most important customer and made my wedding day perfect!

This place is amazing! Nicole and her team did such a wonderful job of making our wedding something truly special. The wedding package they offer includes great linens, beautiful decor, uplighting, and I can't say enough about the food! I highly recommend using this venue for a worry free and affordable wedding experience. They include so many things that many other places we looked at charge extra for. Fabulous bridal suite, groom's ready room, and a wedding suite with champagne and special treats at the end of the night.Sent on 07/28/2017

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.Sent on 05/07/2017
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!!!
DJ'd a wedding there this past weekend and the staff was most helpful. The banquet room and all place settings were spot on with great attention to detail.
Have had inquiry on venue and very friendly and will work with you on your event.
I officiated a wedding here and the staff was fantastic. Everything was well organized and on time. There have space for all size weddings. It has a lot of parking near downtown Raleigh which is a plus!I would recommend this venue for any size wedding.
