    Lovely Catering Manager!

    Catering Manager Jeby is such a delight! My Fiance and I came across the Hilton on Wedding Wire and we loved the pictures and other reviews so much that I messaged them right away. Jeby was very helpful, kind and patient showing us the venue and giving us all the information. She definitely became a friend to us. The staff, food and the Hilton itself was also wonderful! We booked our wedding the next day and we can't wait until we say "I Do" at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue!

    Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to review us Angelina! We look forward to planning with you and getting you prepared for the big day ahead! Enjoy the process of planning with Jeby and our catering and culinary team!

    Great Venue and Ballroom

    It was a wonderful experience working with Randy at Hilton City Avenue. They were able to accommodate for any quick and sudden changes in plans effectively and help drive key events on our big day. The Garden ballroom we were in for the reception fitted all our guests with 16 tables. Our rooms were nice with a great view over the reservoir across the street.

    Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue's reply:

    Hi Long,

    Thank you and An for celebrating your reception with us. Your kind words are greatly appreciated. I wish you both much happiness.

    Regards,

    Randy

    Thank you Jeby & Team!

    Jeby is incredible! Her attention to detail, personality, and level of care helps the Hilton stand apart. Ultimately, we decided to proceed with another venue that worked better for us, however, throughout our entire process, we continually held Jeby and team as the gold standard. Highly recommend the Hilton City Ave!

    Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue's reply:

    Hi Joffie! Thank you so much for your kind words! We truly appreciate your review on our venue and the services provided by Jeby and the catering team! We wish you all the best throughout the planning process and a marriage filled with lots of love ahead!
