    Amazing quality, value, and packages for our destination wedding!

    Having our intimate destination wedding at the Hilton Santa Barbara, Beachfront Resort was the perfect venue for my husband and I. We wanted a high quality, romantic event, without a ridiculous price tag or an overly up-tight feel. Having all of our 65 guests join us from out of town or out of state, the resort was perfectly placed to host most of them - and for other guests to choose alternate accommodations within walking distance as well. Some of the things that stand out the most include how much we got within the one wedding package (food, drinks, equipment, location and more), and the high quality/attention to detail that was given to every aspect - even though it was a package. In addition the staff and service the day and night of the wedding was incredible, and our guests raved about the dinner quality and flavors of the food. The facilities having been recently updated provide a modern, clean, coastal feel which we loved. Proximity to the beach and the funk zone/downtown allowed us to have additional nights with our guests to host additional events off site with ease. The valet and rooms staff were also exceptional, offering to haul the many decorations and supplies we had needed to bring with us (being from out of town) for the week. They always had a smile on their faces and were happy to help us and just plain see us the week of our wedding. The event staff and accommodations staff were extremely helpful in the planning process as well - staying in touch, keeping me organized, and communicating clearly. They offered additional support, perks, and flexibility than is promised and were so lovely to work with as people. We could not have imagined our wedding at a different venue and it was more than we could have dreamed at the beginning of the selection process.

    Accommodating Staff and Great Location

    We went through the Hilton for our room block and for the day after brunch. All of the staff who worked with either me or my wife were fantastic, thorough, and exceeded our expectations even when another large event was also booked on the same day, limiting some of our options. The booking process was easy and they were able to expand the room block as needed. The day after brunch was great and the placement of everything allowed for plenty of room and outdoor seating.
