We had our wedding party/reception at the Hill Center in April 2018 and can't say enough good things about it. Lisa is so easy to work with. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how neat the space is, especially the artwork on the walls. We rented the entire second level for about 120 guests and it was a perfect size. The Hill Center staff that helped out at our event were superb. We can't say enough good things about this space and highly recommend it.

My wife and I choose the Hill Center over a few hotels downtown because it was different and right on the hill. They were super responsive and willing to work with us. They had a number of vendors they recommended that we used and loved. My only regret is that the party didn't last longer.
