    Welcoming, beautiful, and fun

    Noor and Bobby and Chef Josh created an environment that was welcoming, beautiful and fun. They were careful and safe (zero reports of illness, 4 weeks later), flexible and responsive to our many different special requests. The food was delicious, the space was wonderful - including the patio, and the bartenders and waitstaff couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. It all exceeded our expectations in every way - just a wonderful day and evening.

    Happy Times at the Hilton.

    We hosted a wedding for our daughter at the Hilton Garden Inn and the adjoining Gillespie Conference Center. Everything went very, very well. Noor, Leanne and the staff were responsive and helpful, the hotel was great and convenient, and everyone had a great time. I can easily recommend this venue to anyone. The ballroom can be spruced up very nicely, and there is a very nice outdoor section.

    Perfect Wedding Reception Vendor with incredible food, expert wedding planning help, and convenient connected hotel

    The Gillespie Center was the perfect vendor for our daughter's wedding! With help from Noor, LeAnn, and their staff, the day was incredible! They helped with every step of the reception planning, and did everything that needed to be done for setup and tear-down on the wedding day, including staying for most of the reception to help. The food was spectacular! The appetizers were amazing, as well as the half beef and half chicken plated dinner. Servers were timely, accommodating, and friendly. To have the hotel accommodations available to our guests in the same building and offered at a very reasonable rate was very nice, also. We were extremely pleased with the Gillespie Center and would recommend them to anyone planning an event.
