We had our ceremony and reception here - our ceremony was outside on the river and it was picture perfect. The reception was inside and was everything we had hoped for - the food was delicious and the whole evening went great! The staff there is amazing - we worked with Felicia, Jackie and Roxanne. They made the whole process easy and were so helpful. The weekend of our wedding Roxanne helped us with so much and really made it so I felt like I didn’t need to worry about anything! Our guests who stayed at the hotel loved it - the restaurant Inside the hotel is great. We couldn’t be happier with having our wedding here!Sent on 05/25/2019

The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront made our wedding day and the planning a breeze! They were incredibly flexible throughout the whole process! Several of the venues we looked at were very specific about what time you had to start your wedding and the food/drink packages. The Hilton let us choose what time we started and were very flexible about the menu. I could email, call, or stop by anytime if I had questions. I showed up several times just to look at things because I work nearby and they were always so accommodating. All of the staff was wonderful! It was the perfect place to have a wedding! We rented the presidential suite to get ready and guests had a place to stay after the wedding. I loved that we didn't have to drive anywhere on the day of the wedding. The brick building and river were awesome places to take pictures. The food was delicious and served quickly and efficiently! The bartenders were wonderful as well! Our wedding would not have been nearly as great without the staff at the Hilton! I highly recommend them as a venue for a wedding!Sent on 03/20/2016

What a wonderful experience with The Hilton Garden Inn Riverfront. This hotel is beautiful inside and out. The staff and service provided by Courtney Thompson was absolutely top notch. Courtney made the day stress free from beginning to end. She worked with us on each and every detail which was extremely helpful. The food was AMAZING and very affordable. To top it all off, they offered a complimentary stay the night of the wedding which was awesome and also include wine, food, and chocolate covered strawberries...wow. I don't use the word perfect often but my experience with the Hilton Garden Inn was as close as it gets. Big thank you to the wonderful staff!!Sent on 12/09/2015

I have had the pleasure of doing many events here from weddings, corporate events of all sizes and holiday parties. The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn is very professional and does a fantastic job on every aspect of making the events run smoothly and very easy to work with. The food here is amazing as well!
Great venue with a very attentive staff. Lots of room and lots of flexibility to make your dream event a reality. We love working at The Hilton!
This waterfront Suffolk hotel is a well oiled event machine! I've done plenty of officiating events here and never had a flaw. The venue is stunning. I love the porch or portico weddings and the reception area is great too. The food seems well done also!! All around a great choice. Happy to endorse. Much love, Pastor Cory <><
