Our wedding at the Hilton in September 2018 was a huge success -- everything was exquisite and went extremely smoothly. Katie was a true pleasure to work with: very professional, flexible, and creative! We felt like the whole thing was just a really positive, fun experience. The food was definitely a highlight -- everything was delicious and they were able to customize the menu a bit for us to accommodate my husband's random request to have chicken and waffles. The ballroom was beautiful for the reception and the hotel staff were super nice and very caring of all of our guests. Highly recommend for wonderful and affordable wedding venue option!Sent on 10/13/2018

Great service, fun staff, and very easy to work with! The staff and management understands that a wedding is one of the biggest days in a couple's life and they treat it as such. As a DJ, I really enjoy working there because they are such team players and they really help to make the evening great!
