    These guys are absolute lifesavers!

    We had a hiccup with our original venue, which left me in a panic and convinced I didn't have a venue 5 months out. Exacerbating this is that we're an international couple, with an incredibly international guest list.

    I took a chance and contacted the Double Tree.

    Heather and her team seriously came through. They met with me THAT DAY, and were all set to sign a contract with me to get everything going as smoothly as possible.

    My original venue ended up coming through, but I cannot possibly recommend DoubleTree enough. Heather is so sweet, and so on top of everything. The place is gorgeous, and I'm sure if you choose it for your wedding, you and your guests will be well taken care of.

    Great venue

    The DoubleTree was so great to work with. We had our Hindu ceremony here, which required a few unusual aspects (an open flame, etc.). The DoubleTree staff was very accommodating in regard to our needs, communicated with our priest and vendors, and pointed us in the right direction for a food vendor. They were very aware of our timeline and were quick to set up and keep things seamless when our food arrived late, and it ended up going unnoticed. Throughout the planning process they were very responsive to answer email and phone call questions, which is a huge bonus for anyone with lots of questions.
