Beautiful Venue and great service. I have a wedding booked for April. I am looking forward to spending the day among great professionals. And, a beautiful Bride and Groom.
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing the staff at the Hilton Waterfront is. Always carrying themselves with the utmost professionalism, Emily, Kathy and Vanessa not only handle weddings and events with ease, but with both a caring and personable demeanor. Our team loves working events at this beautiful hotel, and their staff is a huge reason for it. You can absolutely expect timely responses, attention to even the tiniest of details and a commitment to making your event flow perfectly when working with Emily, Kathy and Vanessa.
The Waterfront Hilton is such a fantastic venue! Kathy, Vanessa, and Emily in the Catering Department, along with the Bell Desk staff, and Banquet staff are an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend the Waterfront Hilton to those newly engaged couples looking for a beautiful beach wedding venue.
