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.Sent on 04/18/2019
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.
