Best experience ever
Candice and the Hilton team made our night better than we could have imagined. So glad we chose the Hilton Clearwater to turn our dream into reality. Everything was perfectly coordinated the day of, Candice made sure the entire wedding went off without a hitch. The catering staff served us our meal and drinks to ensure we actually ate and enjoyed ourselves. At the end of the night they had everything packed up and delivered back to our hotel room so we could continue having fun after the wedding. It was the best night of our lives, so happy Candice helped make it the wedding of our dreams.Sent on 11/26/2020

Best wedding venue
I could not recommend the Hilton enough for a wedding venue! Candice and Courtney were fantastic! They were so accommodating, flexible and responsive during the whole process. We had to reschedule our wedding date, due to the coronavirus and they made the process so easy. We had to adjust a few things last minute to make sure we could get sunset photos and Candice readjusted the whole schedule with ease. I was able to relax and enjoy the moment on my wedding day knowing I could fully trust Candice and the Hilton staff for making the whole night run smoothly. We had the skirt steak and mahi mahi for our dinner choices and they were both phenomenal. Not only is the Hilton staff incredible, the venue is absolutely breathtaking! We had our ceremony on the beach and reception on the Water’s Edge Ballroom & Deck. I couldn’t have been happier with our choice! I highly recommend the Hilton to all couples! It’s the absolute best place to have your destination wedding!Sent on 07/17/2020

Highly recommend this venue! We had our dream wedding thanks to the Hilton! Candice was amazing to work with and very responsive— especially with me planning from Indiana. Our reception venue was recently remodeled and we were the first wedding in there, it is AMAZINGLY beautiful! The food and beautiful beach, sunset views at our wedding are things people are still talking about!Sent on 06/28/2020

Jayla Mccoy · Married on 05/11/2019
May 2019 Wedding
We chose Hilton Clearwater Beach as our venue after browsing through maybe 2-3 other hotels on the island. We worked with Holly and Candice who were extremely accommodating every step of the way. We are located in Texas and did everything virtually through email or phone call and when the day finally came, everything was perfect and went just as planned. The venue is just beautiful and the food options were a hit. We also had an open bar that the guests loved! We shipped our decor to the hotel where it arrived about 4 days prior to the wedding, we gave them a mock up that we did at home and they nailed it perfectly. Highly recommend having a wedding here! From the ceremony to the reception to the stay, Hilton made sure it was the best experience possible.Sent on 06/24/2019
Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa's reply:The pleasure was all ours, Jayla! We loved being a part of your special day and the pictures were gorgeous!!

You cannot go wrong choosing the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa for your wedding.

Love love love! (beach wedding)
We chose the Clearwater Beach Hilton resort as our host hotel and wedding venue. The views are absolutely amazing from the rooms. The pool area is fantastic and the staff took care of all of our needs. We must especially mention, Holly, our event coordinator from the hotel. She was 100% on point and handled every detail. Including details I would've never thought of. She didn't miss a beat. It was so comforting to know we had her on our side coordinating day of so we could concentrate on enjoying the whole experience without any stress. Also, we need to mention how delicious all of the food was. Above our expectations and many guests mentioned the high quality food that was full of flavor. We had the grammy nominated band, Sevendust, play an acoustical set on the beach during our reception so we had extra coordinating and setup than a typical reception on the beach and again Holly was our girl! Everything went off without a hitch! Finally, we can't recommend this location enough. From the gorgeous white sand beach backdrop to the A+ staff at the Hilton. You won't be disappointed. :)Sent on 06/09/2019
Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa's reply:Thank you for the sweet feedback, Heather! Your wedding was so beautiful! I enjoyed being a part of your special day and wish all the best for you and David.

Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa Wedding was amazing!
The Hilton did an amazing job with every detail of the event, they were wonderful. We had a small destination wedding (31 people) and they treated us like we were the most import event they had. The food was AMAZING, the service was impeccable, and the vendors they recommend were as amazing as the Hilton. HIGHLY recommended!Sent on 05/19/2019
Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa's reply:Thank you, Karen. It was such a pleasure working with you and being a part of your wedding. Best wishes for you and Terry!
Amber · Married on 03/01/2019
Wouldn’t change a thing about it!
My wedding was the most beautiful and easy wedding to plan because of the Hilton staff. Everyone who came said it was the most beautiful weddign they had ever been too. We are out of state so we visited one time about a year and a half before the actual wedding day and fell in love with the place and did all of our planning over phone and email. The Hilton is definitely worth the cost and I feel like I got more than what I paid for. We couldn’t have been any happier with how everything turned out and Brooke and Candice were saints throughout the whole process! We had 90 people on the sandpiper deck which was beautiful.Sent on 03/08/2019
Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa's reply:Amber we can’t thank you enough for your kind words! It has been so wonderful working with you over the past year and a half.

Highly Recommend Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa
My husband and I recently had our wedding at Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa. We got married on the Sandpiper deck and it was the most beautiful scenery for our wedding day. Just as we envisioned. I am originally from Tampa and now live in Chicago where I met my husband, so our wedding was a destination for most of our guest. Our guest had such an amazing time and can't stop talking about the entire weekend and the Hilton resort and staff. We worked with Brooke Tackes and we would highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who is really passionate about what she does. Brooke continuously worked with us throughout the entire process to help create our vision and we couldn't be happier with our experience! Thank you, Hilton, and staff!Sent on 03/04/2019

It was an absolute dream come true getting married at the Hilton!! The staff was so helpful and accommodating. They were always ready to answer our questions and were very flexible. We loved having the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the deck. Once the deck renovations are done, it's going to be even more incredible. We fully recommend this venue and staff :)Sent on 02/03/2019

Best Wedding Decision We Made!
I cannot say enough positive things about choosing to have your wedding at the Hilton. Absolutely everything about the entire process was perfect. The venue is beyond beautiful and the option to be able to have your event outside on a covered deck on the beach is hard to say no to. We had our wedding in January and cold temperatures and high winds made it a chilly night but the Hilton staff brought out comforters for all of our guests and Courtney helped us rent last minute space heaters so we could keep the party going all night long outside. The ability to have our hair and makeup done right at the venue made the entire day relaxed and stress-free. They truly helped accommodate all of our guests with their room requests and special dinner requirements. Best decision we made was to have our wedding here.Sent on 02/09/2019
Sara · Married on 07/07/2018
Where to begin!! We got married at the Hilton Clearwater Beach on July 7th, 2018. After we got engaged we knew we wanted a destination wedding (we’re from NJ). We knew going out of the country would be expensive for our guests, but at first we felt like that was our only option. One day, someone mentioned Florida and it clicked. We loved visiting our family in Tampa, and it felt like Clearwater Beach was the perfect “happy medium” for having our destination wedding. We flew down and visited some of the popular hotels on the beach. Since we were having a destination wedding we obviously wanted everything outside. Why travel to a beautiful beach and have our wedding inside? (Yes, in July lol). The Hilton’s outside venue was perfect. It may look like a deck but from all the Instagram and Facebook stalking of weddings online I did I knew once it was decorated it would be perfect. We began with another coordinator, but was then assigned the wonderful Courtney Owens once she was back from maternity leave. We flew back down in December for our tasting and to meet Courtney. She walked us threw EVERYTHING. We sat for a few hours talking about every single detail possible. She answered every question I had, even the silly ones we had. We decided on what we could, but I was able to make a list of everything else that still needed to be decided. We picked our menu, linens, and all the extras. I’m sure doing this over the phone would be possible, but meeting in person was so much easier.Sent on 12/29/2018
Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. My only complaint is the noise ordinance! Our wedding had to be over by 11 because we were outside and there is a town noise ordinance.
(Obviously not the Hilton’s rule) The food was AMAZING, to this day guests are still ranting and raving about our wedding and welcome party food. Courtney and the Confetti girls truly made our day go perfectly. I wish we could do it all over again.
The hotel was in the perfect location. A car was not necessary. We were in walking distance of great restaurants, bars, and attractions. Even though the pool was crowded at times (it was 4th of July weekend), we were always able to get a chair. On the beach there were rental chairs which were overpriced, but we found a great store a couple blocks away near the bay that rented out beach chairs for a reasonable price. The rooms were small, but always clean. As the bride definitely upgrade to the suite! We kind of just assumed we would be automatically upgraded (like friends of ours who have been married in other countries were at their destination wedding) but it’s not going to happen. Do the upgrade it’s definitely worth it, especially for the day of.
Every vendor we picked worked out so amazingly. I have not 1 complaint. I used websites like The Knot and Wedding Wire to help me make decisions. I highly recommend them all.

We had our wedding here in May 2018. Despite some rain the venue turned out great and looked beautiful.

Clarissa · Married on 11/18/2017
Working with Courtney at the Hilton Clearwater was like a DREAM for any bride. She was always prompt with her emails, always was available to chat over the phone when I had questions - just incredible. We were planning our wedding from Colorado, so naturally that added some stress but Courtney was always accommodating and ready to review any details or reports when needed to reassure me that everything was as it should be.
The day of the wedding was absolute perfection. I could not have asked for a more beautiful venue, or a more competent staff! Everything was timed perfectly, no hitches whatsoever, and even things I was too anxious to think about, they had already thought about and planned for. The catering staff was AMAZING - food was incredible (which we knew it would be from the tasting), and our glasses were always full without ever having to get up for another drink - it was special being taken care of like that! I could barely eat (nerves, tight dress, lol) so they ended up making me a bunch of to-go containers to take back to our room later so that I could actually enjoy the food we picked out - such a nice touch.
We loved, loved, loved out wedding at the Hilton Clearwater and would highly recommend them to anyone considering this venue.Sent on 12/18/2017

My daughter's wedding on November 4 was handled beautifully by Courtney, the hotel staff and the AV team and our selected vendors. It was everything my daughter hoped for and many guests said it was the best wedding they ever attended. We had many custom tasks which were accommodated and handled without a hitch. The redecorated facility was beautiful. The food was excellent. No complaints at all.Sent on 11/06/2017

Trevor · Married on 10/06/2017
Married by partner at this location on Sept 29, 2017. The experience was absolutely phenomenal. I worked with Courtney to arrange our wedding. She was wonderful and made the experience very positive. We wanted to find a venue that would be easy to work with as a gay couple. They were great. Every staff member was warm and welcoming and we never felt judged or unwelcome!! The beachfront wedding was beautiful. They have staff that keeps people away from the ceremony which helped calm some of our fears. We used the ballroom for our wedding reception. New carpet and new chairs. The foyer area is fully renovated. Beautiful!! The guest rooms are recently renovated and are very nice. Pool area is brand new. They tore out their old pools! This location is in the heart of Clearwater Beach right next to the Pier. Everything is within walking distance. Loved that there was a Walgreens right across street as well as restaraunts!! Nothing but positive things to say!! A special thanks to Shawn at the hotel who checked in with us daily and made our stay very special. And another shout out to Laurie, our banquet captain, who really made sure we were taken care of!!!!!Sent on 10/16/2017
Jaclyn · Married on 09/30/2017
Having our wedding at the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa was the first decision and one of the best decisions we made! Their entire staff is incredibly helpful, welcoming and professional. I attribute their affordable room rates to huge reason why we had 130 guests travel from all over the country to attend our wedding! All of our guests LOVED the Hilton and LOVED the location. So many of my guests said they are already making plans to come back to the Hilton for another long weekend vacation! As for the wedding, they were simply amazing throughout the entire process. Courtney Owens was the main reason why we booked our wedding at the Hilton after our initial meeting. Courtney was so warm and informative that we walked away saying, we are definitely booking here! We looked at about six other options, but didn’t think twice after meeting with her. Throughout the entire process, Courtney was responsive and helpful. Given the fact that they have events EVERY weekend and of course throughout the week, I was shocked at how quickly she would get back to us on everything. She was SO helpful with referrals since we are not from the area and I have to say EVERY referral was SPOT ON. She highly recommended Confetti Events to help with the planning process and I can honestly say that was the best referral from her we had! And I have to talk about the food! I am STILL hearing from my guests how amazing the food was and that it was the BEST menu they have ever seen at any wedding they had been to. I could go on and on about the Hilton and wish I could give them 10 stars! I am SO grateful for everything they did for us the day of and of course the months leading up to the wedding day. The hotel is truly beautiful with all the renovations they have done. We are definitely planning on coming back for a long weekend for our one year anniversary. Thank you Courtney, you are amazing!!!!Sent on 10/25/2017
