    Amber Scott was our wedding coordinator and she helped my fiancé and I every step of the way with planning our wedding at the Hilton. She was responded immediately with all our requests and concerns and care up with a solution that made us felt satisfied. She even made my wedding party and guests felt special by accompanying their requests as well. Our wedding turned out amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better location to have our wedding at.

    The coordinators at the Hilton were amazing at helping us set up our room block for our guests! Aliya was extremely responsive, professional, flexible and kind in helping make sure we had our hospitality needs taken care of!
