John was fabulous! He took care of our entire event. We purchased the outdoor patio for our cocktail hour and when the weather got gloomy he asked us if we wanted to move it into the other ballroom just in case the rain decides to hit. He was fabulous to work with- he fixed issues that I had caught. It is a put pricey but totally worth it. The doubletree cookies are a special treat. You can't go wrong by having your reception at the doubletree :)

Working with John was such a pleasure. He was friendly from the start and did everything to make the event tailored to our needs. He worked closely with the chef to create an amazing menu, he made sure everything ran smoothly, and the set up was amazing. His availability, helpfulness, and customer service were so great. Our wedding turned out to be so much more than I ever imagined. Thanks!

If I could give John 10 stars I would. He made everything perfect. He responded extremely quick to any and all questions we had. Made minor suggestions along the way that were right on the mark. I don't trust many people but I trusted him and I'm so thankful I did. If your looking for this type of a venue I wouldn't look any farther than John and his staff at the Doubletree in Claremont!

We had our June 2013 wedding at the DoubleTree and it was truly amazing. The main reason is John, their Director of Catering. He's was absolutely the reason everything was so easy. He was incredibly responsive and detail oriented. We never had one minute of worry that something wouldn't be exactly as we wanted it. Food was good, cake was beautiful and tasty (you can go through their bakeries, which I would suggest).

The space is beautiful and well kept. A large portion of our guests were out of town and they had nothing but good things about their rooms. As we were the bride and groom, we had a wedding suite that was absolutely beautiful. We totally recommend this venue, you can't beat the value for the amazing service you get.

I can't even begin to describe how amazing this venue is. It really is a diamond in the rough! The catering director, John Gutzwiller, was so amazing that words can't even describe just how great he is. John was super helpful throughout the planning process and was always, always responsive to anything that we needed or had questions about. We absolutely loved everything about the venue and all its staff. The staff was so helpful and was always checking in on us to make sure we were okay. If you are looking for a good venue to get married at, this is a great one: wonderful staff, good food with huge portions, and a beautiful location.

I would highly recommend The DoubleTree, Claremont for your next event. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

The Double Tree Hilton of Claremont was AMAZING!! The friendly staff, helpfulness of the Director of Catering, John, and the person who helped us with our rooms, Krystle were amazing!!! We used every vendor from their recommended vendor list, not because they recommended them, but because the vendors were in fact AMAZING to work with! They were affordable for our budget and they all had previously worked together even more which made our wedding day run so smoothly! We could not afford a wedding coordinator, and having all the vendors who had previously worked with the hotel staff was as if we had had everything coordinated. I cannot thank John and his team enough for all of their help in making our wedding so great!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with everyone we spoke with at the Doubletree Hotel Claremont. We had been planning our wedding reception from Columbus, OH with a lot of anxiety (mostly on my part) and with the help of
John Gutzwiller, everything turned out AMAZING and more than I ever anticipated. We have been told over and over again from our guests how polite and attentive all the staff was and how beautiful the courtyard was decorated. We would highly recommend this facility for any wedding, reception, special event. Again, John was of so much help and answered any question I had without making me feel like I was bothering him. Thank you again!!

John Gutzwiller at the DoubleTree Claremont Hotel was absolutely outstanding. He had the ability to not only do what we expected from him, but go above and beyond the call of duty to help make our wedding reception into the most wonderful day of our lives. He was always there throughout our journey to answer any questions we had and schedule our appointments after he normal working hours in order to accommodate our work schedules. Overall, the DoubleTree is a beautiful place to celebrate any event with a superb staff in all departments. I have already referred a personal friend who is getting married in April!

Jon at the Double Tree Hotel Claremont was absolutely wonderful.... My wife and I started looking for a venue about a year and a half before our date looking for the perfect place to host our special day. To be very honest, we took one look at the place and it was the perfect place for us. The price was right and the amount of services and other vendors that were apart of our package couldn't be any better!! The best bang for your buck with a beautiful scenery.

This hotel setting was perfect for our son's rehearsal dinner. I enjoyed planning the banquet buffet menu with the enthusiastic, professional Mr. Gutzwiller who was very and helpful.

The Doubletree Claremont and staff did a wonderful job on making our wedding day easy. The Director of Catering, John Gutzwiller, was a pleasure to work with. John was very generous and made sure that we had everything we needed to make our special day even more special. The staff were very pleasant and hardworking and treated our guests how we would want them to be treated.

John was very responsive in regards to any questions that we may have had and he responded within a timely manner. John & the Doubletree staff were very professional as well. We thought that we got the most value for our money. Prices were reasonable which made it easier for us to stay within our budget. The hotel and staff were quite flexible with our needs and requests.

We wanted a place where we could have the ceremony and reception so our guests did not have to drive. The courtyard where we got married was absolutely amazing and made our pictures look even more beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing as well and not to mention the Doubletree cookies are to die for! Mmmmm so good! The room and suites were quite spacious and very clean.

If you are getting married and want a place that has it all then I highly recommend the Doubletree Claremont. The hotel and surroundings are absolutely beautiful and the staff are very wonderful to work with!

We had an incredibly positive experience for my daughter’s wedding at the Doubletree Claremont. John and his staff made the day stress free and absolutely beautiful. Throughout the planning, John’s communication was timely and professional as well as detail oriented. As the wedding day neared, we felt calm and assured that all would go smoothly and it did! During the reception, the serving staff was attentive and helpful. The hors d’oeuvres were especially delicious, and the main entrée was hot, delicious, and exactly as we had seen it in the tasting session. The packages they offer are reasonable and a great value for the money. For a relaxing and beautiful experience I highly recommend the Doubletree at Claremont.

I had the wedding of my dreams at the Doubletree Hotel Claremont. John Gutzwiller and the entire staff at the hotel are absolutely the best in the business. They executed every detail of my wedding with perfection. The entire hotel staff was courteous and professional, which made the entire day run smoothly.

We had our ceremony in the beautiful outdoor courtyard area of the hotel. Because the area is completely covered, it was shady and comfortable even in the middle of the summer. We then had our cocktail reception in the hotel's ballrooms. I was in constant awe about how beautiful the ceremony and reception turned out.

We got so many complements from our guests about how amazing the food tasted. For our appetizers, we opted for the loaded mashed potatoes in a martini glass and shrimp cocktail. Not only was the presentation spectacular, our guests raved about how delicious they tasted. In fact, some of our guests told us that the mashed potatoes were the best they had ever tasted! Our guests also raved about how moist and tender the chicken breast and filet mignon were at dinner. We had 220 guest and the expert staff at the Doubletree served all of our guests within minutes, which is definitely amazing.

I would highly recommend the Doubletree Hotel Claremont if you are looking for a fabulous wedding venue. The food, staff and location are top notch. I am an extreme perfectionist and this hotel absolutely exceeded my expectations. You will not regret having your wedding here.

My husband and myself looked quite a few places and stumbled upon this venue.
The website doesnt do justice to the venue, it has a really gourgeous courtyard that we used for our wedding/reception
The courtlyard had beautiful wall waterfall, you must see to appreciate. Well maintained grounds.
John was outstanding with accomidating our request for the day. Usually wedding food isnt to good & cold,.. but our food was hot & tasted great, Bartender was on his toes. Also John's recommendation for Bakery was a real hit, people are still asking us where did we get the cake from. The staff was professional & courteous.

Anyways, Please go check this place out in nice location, not overpriced, great for small & large weddings. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a venue. I was very happy with it and I really looked at a lot of places before the Doubletree.

My Husband and I had looked at several different locations to have our wedding ceremony and reception. It ended up being a frustrating situation at most places because they would not listen to our visions we had for our special wedding day. On top if it the cost for most of the venues was through the roof! We walked away from many venue tours feeling let down, disapointed and wondering if we would be able to find the perfect place for our wedding or if we would end up having to just settle on one of the venues that we were not thrilled about.

Then, we decided to visit the DoubleTree in Claremont. This was the turning point in our quest to find our perfect venue for our wedding! We started by calling he front desk to ask them a few questions and they were extremely helpful in assisting us with our questions and directing us to the Director of Catering, John. John has the most welcoming warm personality that made us feel very comfortable. When we met him, my husband and I instantly new we had to work with him for our wedding! John gave us a wonderful tour of the beautiful DoubleTree hotel! We absolutely loved the romantic, green, lush courtyard and the large banquet room in which we easily personalized with the theme and decor of our wedding. John took the time to listen to all of our thoughts, concerns, needs and wants for our wedding ceremony and reception. He made helpful suggestions when appropriate and went over and beyond on every last detail.

Every step of the wedding planning process with John and the staff of the DoubleTree was fun, exciting and most importantly, easy! John was especially accommodating with helping with our every need. He made terrific suggestions to help us stick to our budget and always made us feel like he was one of our closest friends who truly cared about the success of our special wedding day!

Our friends and family still compliment us on what a beautiful, successful, and memoriable wedding we had. John and the DoubleTree staff made all of our guests feel comfortable and our out of town guests that stayed at the DoubleTree really felt special and truly made everyone's experience a memorable one!

My husband and I still enjoy thinking about how lucky we were to find such an incredible venue and we still feel very fortunate that we were able to work with such amazing people, especially John! The quality of service was absolutely flawless, and our wedding could not have been more perfect thanks to the professionalism provided by DoubleTree's staff!

The director of catering for the Doubletree Hotel in Claremont, John Gutzwiller, was absolutely wonderful! He was very helpful and flexible to meet our needs. He was quick to respond and always accommodated us for everything. The hotel itself is very beautiful; we had our ceremony in the courtyard and the reception in the ballroom. My fiance (at the time, now husband) and I fell in love with the hotel for it's cozyness yet beautiful landscape. The area and town of Claremont itself had a beautiful setting. The prices (at the time we booked our wedding) was very affordable for what we wanted and needed than many places we looked around for. I would recommend the Doubletree Hotel in Claremont for your dream wedding...mine was a dream come true!

John Gutzwiller was our catering coordinator. He was just perfect, exact, timely, helpful, knowledgeable and up beat. This was a retirement party for my wife as she celebrated forty-three years of nursing. I told John that it was wonderful to have my expectations surpassed. The food was great and the kitchen staff and clean up crew were wonderful.

We absolutely excited that we had our wedding at this reception area. We could not be happier with the service that we received. We were very happy with all the services they provided. The price of this reception site was expensive, however, a lot cheaper then many of the other places we saw. Besides, that point, they were completely worth every single penny. The only problem we experienced was that we wanted a head table but because we maxed out the hall we could not have one. At the reception though, we did not even notice that all we had was a sweetheart table.

As my sister and I drove around looking for a place for my wedding I was at my wits end and as soon as I showed up to the DoubleTree in Claremont and met John I knew that this was going to be the place. My sister, John and I hit it off right away and that alone made me happy because I wanted someone that I could get along with in order to make the wedding planning easier and fun and John totally made that happen. I think the only thing I regret is going through one of their "preferred" vendors for the linens. I would have preferred to pay a little extra then to have worked with a different linen vendor that just gave me a headache! My husband and I only had our reception here so the quality of service was amazing, but when it came to refilling water glasses it took forever and I just took the liberty of refilling my own glass with my own pitcher of water that I snatched. he he he...
When it came to asking John questions through email he was very quick to respond and give you the answers you needed. He and the DoubleTree staff were always professional and always gave you warm chocolate chip cookies, which you can never say no to :)
Just like any other business you have to try to make a profit and they sure did on charging $350 for a domestic keg that you can get at a liquor store for $100, but that's just how the business rolls!
John was very flexible with meeting times, but my husband and I had a tight budget and a wedding coordinator was not in our budget so in order to set up we needed to confide on good friends to help us and unfortunately the only specific times to set up were between 2:00pm-4:00pm when our wedding ceremony was at 2:00pm so our friends had to miss our ceremony because the set up time frame was not flexible :(
Overall, my husband and I were very pleased and satisfied with our wedding becasue we had fun and our guests had an amazing time so we would HIGHLY recommend the DoubleTree in Claremont and we many thanks to John for making it a memorable day for us! :D

The DoubleTree Hotel in Claremont was an excellent place to have our wedding. The outdoor courtyard was a great place to have the ceremony and the banquet room was right next to it. They had a variety of options based on budget and number of guests. The in-house catering was good. The Wedding Coordinator was very helpful. They charged extra for a dance floor and for a projector. The price did include a hotel room for the bride and groom.
