    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.

    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.
