Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront's reply:Thank you so much for your review Sandra. I was excited and looking forward to your wedding maybe not as much as you but still excited. I also wanted to make things to go smoothly because of what you experienced at another venue. I did not want you to worry about this venue!!

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

Wonderful Wedding Ceremony and Reception
I love our wedding photos, the venue is just gorgeous! We had our ceremony and reception on property. We were also able to have a large group for breakfast in the restaurant the morning after the wedding. The team did an excellent job. We are so happy to chose the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront for our wedding.Sent on 07/08/2020

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 <><
