We had an AWESOME experience having our wedding reception in the Grand Ballroom at the DoubleTree! Courtney and her staff were amazing. She was very responsive, flexible, and accommodating. We had over 200 guests at our reception- The food was great, the bartenders were quick, and the staff was helpful. The hotel bar afterwards was a fun spot to keep the party going! I would definitely recommend this venue!Sent on 05/23/2018

The staff (Courtney, Linda, Shari, & Dawn) at this venue were exceptional in every way possible! They were very responsive and on top of all the plans for my wedding. They accommodated all my needs and requests and were nothing but flexible and adaptable. They were such a pleasure to work with and very warm and welcoming! The wedding ballroom was beautiful and the service of the staff the night of my wedding was excwptional. The only unfortunate thing was the food the night of the wedding. It wasn't as great as my husband, myself, and guests would hoped it would be. The salon and chicken were dry and over cooked and the beef was undercooked. All in all, I would recommend the DoubleTree based on the quality level of professionalism, customer service, and flexibility. It was nothing but exceptional and it is difficult to find now a days!Sent on 09/15/2018

Courtney is amazing!! She truly knows what she is doing and she makes all of the overwhelming decisions so much easier with her efficiency, professionalism, expertise, and organization! We were probably a headache sometimes with all of the questions we had and my nervousness about everything going right, but if we were- she never showed it! We got great customer service, and the food was out of this world amazing! Everyone commented on how amazing the food and drinks were. Thanks guys!!Sent on 10/15/2017

Doubletree was an awesome venue for my husband and I to choose! Everything was set up exactly how we wanted! Courtney was a great help with every detail! Also Dawn was amazing! She stayed late with myself and my bridal party to help us decorate!! She was lovely!! I really appreciate all that was done for the Horton/Young wedding! 5stars! :)

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding experience! Courtney and her team were beyond wonderful and made our night unforgettable. Courtney is SO quick to respond to emails and follows through on everything immediately. She is truly gifted at her job. The staff was always making sure we were alright throughout the night and all of the little details were noticed. There was even a plate of appetizers at our sweetheart table when dinner started and 3 slices of cake in our hotel room after the reception. Those details were among my favorite since we didn't get a chance to have appetizers or cake when they were being served. I can't say enough nice things about the Doubletree. This staff and venue is the BEST! Thank you again for everything!Sent on 09/16/2017
DoubleTree by Hilton Syracuse's reply:Colleen, thank you so much for your kind words and feedback. We absolutely loved working with you, Sean and your families! Our partnership was truly meant to be from the beginning. We look forward to having you back soon!

From start to finish Courtney was wonderful. She was quick to respond to questions and always made us feel at ease. She was present through the whole process and was perfect on the wedding day. Our ceremony was on site and it was beautiful. The reception in the newly remodeled hotel was perfect. We would recommend 100%. Our wedding was more than we imagined.Sent on 06/05/2017
DoubleTree by Hilton Syracuse's reply:Thank you so very much for your feedback and review, Jessica. We enjoyed working with you and hosting your special day!

This was the absolute best location we could have chosen for our reception. Courtney Kahler was our coordinator and she made us feel so welcome from the moment we made the call to look at the venue, she was absolutely amazing the entire time. The entire staff was also absolutely awesome for the entire night and even made a special meal for one of our guests last minute. We could not have even imagined having a better reception or a better location, everyone was so accommodating and wonderful. Thank you again to Courtney and the entire staff at the Hilton, if it was not for you we would not have had the best time of our lives. Everyone needs to book their wedding receptions here!Sent on 03/21/2017

When planning our wedding, we had decided on a small reception, catered in our backyard. We had always assumed having a reception at a 'fancy hall' when trying to stick to a budget would not be feasible. At the last moment, I contacted Courtney at the Double Tree, merely to inquire about price, should mother nature decide to make a nasty appearance on my outdoor reception. I was stunned to find out, not only how affordable the wedding packages are, but how many choices and food and drink selections are included in the packages. We were SOLD! Our outdoor reception became indoors, and it could not have been a better decision. Courtney and her team were beyond helpful in making our day fabulous from the lighting, to the decor, to the food and drinks, and most importantly, excellent customer service. Our guests raved for days about the food, and appearance of our hall.Sent on 01/17/2017
Thank you Courtney, and everyone at the Double Tree for sharing in our day, and making it one to remember.
DoubleTree by Hilton Syracuse's reply:Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! We strive to provide our guests outstanding hospitality and your compliments serve as encouragement to all of us. We look forward to your next stay!

My fiancé and I were looking for a one-stop-shop vendor where basically everything was in one place. We didn’t want to worry about linens, tables, chairs, decorations, china, silverware, etc. We didn’t want to book several different vendors. It seemed like every place we reached out to was missing/lacking services or amenities we were looking for. I met Courtney at the bridal expo in downtown Syracuse late January and, as we had the 1st week of August in mind for our wedding, we were pressed for time. Courtney took my info and immediately followed up with me. I had rejected the idea of having a party in a hotel assuming that it would be way out of budget, but, I gave Courtney and her team a chance and in our first meeting I introduced our budget and she was more than accommodating. NO JUDGEMENT ZONE, options after options on how to reach a happy medium between the reception of our dreams and staying in budget. With the DoubleTree you can really be as involved in the process as you’d like or not; Courtney won’t judge you at all and that is why I fell in love with her and her professionalism. Needless to say everything was EXQUISITE. Our guests loved the food, the venue and how attentive and caring the whole staff was. Courtney couldn’t be present on the day of our reception but Linda was and she was there every step of the way; from the moment we set foot at the hotel after our off site ceremony until the very last guest left. They were both supper responsive and the lines of communication were always open. All in all, the DoubleTree can make it happen; we didn’t have to worry about a thing on our wedding day and for that we are eternally gratefulSent on 01/31/2017

From the very beginning of planning our wedding Courtney and the DoubleTree staff were amazing. The bridal tea gave us the perfect idea of how our wedding would be and the tasting was amazing. Courtney helped us customize the menu and accommodated food allergies while still providing us with all of the special touches we wanted for our reception. Half of our wedding was from out of town and DoubleTree provided the great accommodations for our large crowd. The ceremony, reception, late night snacks and farewell brunch were all perfect thanks to the great food, drinks and service.Sent on 12/19/2016

From the very beginning, Courtney was personable, organized and overall fun to plan with. She made sure that everything was put in place when and where it should be. She ALWAYS responded quick to my emails and had the greatest advice. My husband and I are blessed to have had Courtney help plan our wedding. DoubleTree is an amazing venue, especially for large weddings. We had 180 people and they made everyone feel so comfortable and cared for. They were attentive and on track with EVERYTHING. The food was incredible and we recieved so many compliments on how welcoming and quick the staff was. They made us feel like royalty. Thank you times a million!!Sent on 06/08/2016

The staff is easy to work with and whatever you want or need they are right there accommodating you. Everyone was helpful and always available when you needed something or to get a hold of someone. My reception was absolutely beautiful. They saw my vision and were able to create it! When my husband and I walked through those doors we were shocked and stunned on how gorgeous everything was. I highly recommend them to anyone! (Ledford Wedding May 6th)Sent on 12/15/2016
