The HIGHEST level of excellent customer service! Brittany ensured every detail was carried out to perfection. The food was excellent, the staff was incredible, the venue was beautiful. We wanted a place that could hold both the ceremony and reception in the same location without doing a flip. So we held the ceremony in the pre-function area and the reception in the ballroom (they also had the option of having the ceremony in part of the ballroom and the reception in the other sections of the ballroom).
We had many guests stay at the Hilton Garden Inn while the guys and a few other guests stayed at the Doubletree across the parking lot. Both hotels were extremely accommodating to our MANY requests; the manager at Doubletree even went out and purchased a shower mat for one of our guest using a handicap shower to ensure their safety. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant, helpful, and professional. Our favorite front desk staff member to bother was Michelle...she was awesome! She answered any questions we had and if she wasn't sure of how to answer she researched and got back to us.
The hotel(s) are in a great location where there are many shops and restaurants conveniently located in walking distance. I had family come in from out of the country and friends and family from out of state but getting to shops was not a problem. There a shuttle available from the hotel to the nearby area. Movie theater across the road! With Doubletree being across the parking lot we were never worried about a shortage of rooms. The Hilton still had a private feel to it because of it not being directly on the main road.
As the ceremony was beginning, Brittany was there to help keep me calm! She was amazing. My husband and I want to have another wedding just to be able to relive the day! Everything was above and beyond what we expected and I can't stop looking at my pictures and smiling about how great things went--largely in part because of Hilton Garden Inn in Cary.

I held my wedding both ceremony and reception at the Hilton Garden Inn Raleigh-Cary. After looking at numerous hotels, I knew this was the one. I loved it. Very warm and earthy feeling. The ballrooms are located at the other end of the hotel so away from other guests and noise, Etc. I had my ceremony in two sections of the ballroom and then opened up all 4 for my reception. I mostly decorated the ceremony myself, with bows on the chairs and flower petals and tule. The reception was beautiful, the linens and napkins I had chosen brought the room to life. I also got uplighting from my DJ which gave the room the extra pop of color I wanted! The team is wonderful to work with, I originally booked with Latesha, and Brittany held my final meeting. Their chef and bartender are amazing also! Their team is friendly and professional. Willing to answer phone calls and emails and be in constant contact to answer any questions I may have had. If you like the spot - go for it! My wedding was the best day ever!Sent on 07/30/2016

We had a great time on the wedding day. Bridal party had a separate room after the ceremony for a special cocktail hour. The cocktail hour for the guests was great- appetizers and open bar was very well done. Choice of steak or chicken for dinner- best steak I've had at any affair in a long time.Sent on 08/03/2016
Glad my daughter picked Hilton Gardens. The party was also very reasonably priced!

HGI Raleigh-Cary has been nothing but easy to work with! They book in advance to ensure no last minute problems, know what they want without needed 200 changes, and always have great attitudes towards their clients and vendors. We enjoy their repeat business!
As a wedding photographer, I've had the opportunity to work in many wedding venues in Raleigh and the Hilton Garden Inn is one of my absolute favorites! The staff is fabulous to work with, professional and extremely helpful. The quality of food and service during the wedding is fantastic, I've never seen them fall behind or keep guests waiting and believe me, it does happen! I've been quite surprised by some venues even running out of food! But the Hilton Garden Inn is a well oiled machine, any wedding couple would be in great hands knowing their perfect day will go off without a hitch.
