    Elegant Space and Great Service

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hilton Netherland Plaza and couldn’t have been happier with how the weekend went. The location is perfect, right downtown and so close to Fountain Square. The hotel itself is stunningly beautiful throughout. The food was delicious and well-prepared; we are still receiving compliments about it! But the best parts were all of the people who helped to make our event a success. Roger signed us on and made us feel special with his thoughtfulness. Lisandro and Maureen were amazing banquet captains; they kept everything running smoothly and were very attentive to our wants and needs. But the event was truly a success because of Taylor. She was superb in all that she did: so organized, responsive, helpful, and flexible. She made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout a process that is inherently stressful. She answered my MANY questions and was just all-around an amazing coordinator who was truly fun and a blessing to work with. Thank you to Taylor and the entire Hilton team for making our wedding the perfect event that we dreamed of...we highly recommend having your event here!

    Absolutely gorgeous venue, you won't regret!

    We had our ceremony and reception in the Hall of Mirrors here on 03.23.2019. Devin was amazing throughout the entire process, from the beginning to the tasting to the final meeting and down to the day/evening of! We knew what we wanted and we knew you have to pay for what you want but this venue is worth every single penny. They flipped the ceremony in the Hall of Mirrors to our reception in the Hall of Mirrors in an hour and it was just simply amazing! The communication is excellent all around and it turned out be way more than what we imagined! Blown away! Our guests were blown away by the venue! The amazing food options (they included a menu for our guests also at no additional charge) the awesome white glove service, the setting of each table, the meal presentations, and just the night period! Thank you to everyone at the Hilton Netherland Plaza who helped make this one of the best days of our lives! The amount spent that I've listed includes ceremony fee, three meal choices which includes one vegetarian, 5 hour open bar and one hour cocktail hour, tax and gratuity. This amount DID not include the outside vendors such as lighting, cake, flowers etc. All photos shown are in the Hall of Mirrors.

    Taylor Chubb and her team made our wedding absolutely perfect. The service, food, and bar were unparalleled! The Pavilion Room perfectly accommodated our guests, leaving us plenty of room for dancing and a lounge in the Caprese Suite by the bar. If you are considering this room, keep in mind when you go to see it that it looks completely different with lighting! It is the perfect venue for art deco brides - I wish we could do it all over again!
