    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.
