Wedding April 2024

My fiancé and I were very pleased with our total experience working with Claudia the senior catering/events manager at the Hotel and her team for our wedding day. This included everything from picking a date to securing preferred vendors to Reserving our wedding suites and other accommodations. She was very responsive to email and phone calls, and all of our questions were answered along the way in a very timely manner. There was always a clear plan of action Communicated and She was very willing and able to work with us to make our big day so very special. Now on the other side of the event, we are so glad that we decided to host our wedding at the Hilton Universal Hotel and would keep it in mind for future events of a similar scale As well as recommend it to our friends and family members. We had around 250 or so guests. Additionally, we should add that our wedding planner found a day to be seamless, partly due to all of the attention and forethought Claudia and her team had paid to our event in the months leading up.

We recently had our wedding here. We needed a hotel that has a chinese family style banquet. I wasn't able to taste any of the food beforehand just because we thought the wedding food tasting was a little but pricey. I would still recommend trying the food so you have an idea of what you will be getting. Guests loved the food.. even the cocktail hour snacks.. we had some stuffed mushrooms and skewers.. Elbe was the one helping us with the wedding and was very accomodating. I only had 140 guests and 1 ballroom was perfect. The ceremony area is nice too.. unless you want a long aisle to walk at.. then this area I had was a little short.. but enough seats for my guest... The only complain I had was during my ceremony.. we were saying vows.. when a loud buzzer was heard.. i think it was from the parking structure.. all in all it was a perfect day and a happy wedding.
