    Everything was perfect!

    Two weeks before our wedding our other vendor canceled our contract. Luckily, DoubleTree in Bay City came to the rescue. Their ENTIRE staff was absolutely amazing and made our day better than we ever could have imagined. They were incredibly flexible, helpful, and a DREAM to work with. The space was decorated beautifully, the staff was friendly, and the food was DELICIOUS! We felt supported by everyone at the hotel, but not overwhelmed with questions - something I expected to happen with so many moving parts to our day. I would recommend for anyone to consider having their wedding here.

    Making my day an absolute dream

    I had my wedding ceremony and reception on August 30th. From the start of planning Tricia was always super helpful and responsive with any questions we had! Let me say this place is absolutely gorgeous a beautiful ballroom and ceremony space right on the water! As the day approached they hosted a taste test which I truly appreciated as not all places let you taste the food for your day! They gave us a packet to fill out all of our details which made all my decisions feel so easy as they were all laid out in front of me. Deanna then went over the details one last time with me to make sure everything was the way I wanted. They take all of your items and set it up for you! Day of the liaison service was amazing! I was stress free on my day thanks to them! They made sure things ran smoothly and on time! Doubletree made sure my needs were met and always were happy to help! My wedding planning truly was so much easier thanks to them! And my day was absolutely perfect and beautiful, everything I had hoped to be and more! I would recommend this place to everyone! We recieved compliments for weeks after from our loved ones saying it was one of the best weddings they attended! Thank you Doubltree especially Tricia and Deanna! My day was an absolute dream! Any brides and grooms interested also note that I was able to have my dream wedding and stick to an amazing budget! They offer many packages including Friday and Sunday deals!

    Ceremony & Reception

    We couldn’t have made a better choice to host our wedding at the doubletree on 8/3/19. Tricia and Deanna were absolutely wonderful to work with during the whole process. They were prompt at responding to any question or concern I had. The staff the day of was friendly and went above and beyond to help our guests. The food was absolutely amazing and all of our guests kept commenting on how it was the best food they have had at a wedding! Thank you so much for everything!!
