Trevor did a great job understanding what we wanted, and made some great suggestions. All of our guests comments what a great time they had--this venue worked very well for our ceremony and reception. We also heard lots of raves about the guest rooms, and flexibility in accommodating meals before and after the event for groups of our guests.

This site asks for feedback that future brides would find helpful--we are two grooms :) Maryland has had legal same-sex marriages since the first of the year. Just like everyone we've heard from, the staff at the hotel were very enthusiastic about our wedding and our plans, and constantly went out of their way to be helpful. If your experience is like our experience, you'll appreciate working with them.

We had my daughter's wedding reception at the Doubletree Hilton, as well as had many overnight guests for the weekend. We perhaps had the worst weather the night before the wedding, with many power outages and stressful situations to deal with. The person we had been dealing with all year left the week before our wedding as she was promoted; the hotel immediately took care of our needs and more as they seemlessly took over. We dealt with many people, but Sharon and Paula stepped right in and made sure that any concerns we had were addressed, and any needs and reception requests were personally taken care of. They went out of their way to be responsive, flexible, and calm any nerves. I would recommend using the hotel for any reception or event, as the staff made sure everything look beautiful and was taken care of.

If you have people staying at the Doubletree, know that there is only Valet parking or free parking across the street (on weekends). The free Valet parking was included in our package, but once there was no room, guests had to park across the street.This is the only drawback at all that I can find with the hotel.

We had some difficulty with the car service to the airport that was part of the wedding package, but the hotel was good to their word, got a taxi for the newlyweds paid by the hotel, and made sure they were taken care of. Several times we had taxis show up early and then leave as we weren't down to meet them. Although this is not the hotel's fault, it might be good to know this as a guest staying overnight.

I would highly recommend using this venue for a wedding reception, as it looked beautiful, ran very smoothly, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs. They clearly have systems in place in case of last minute emergencies and there was absolutely no gap in service! An excellent experience having a wedding reception there!

I recently got married at this location on April 9th. My entire wedding was at the Hilton from two ceremonies, to cocktail hour and reception and a breakfast the next morning. It was the absolute best. All of my guests were happy, comfortable, and most importantly thought the food at my reception for over 300 people was excuisit. I had several resturant owners comment on how delicious the food was and they are hard critics!!

Riva Neam was incredicble and really made my day awesome. She worked with my wedding planner, and was also available to me 24/7. On the actual day...Riva stayed for the ENTIRE event and was visible to check and make sure everything was running smoothly, which I was incredibly greatful for. The rest of the staff wasn't far behind Riva's standard. They made sure all of my guests were well taken care of and really catered to everyone!

The venue itself offers variety. The different ballrooms, and the courtyard make for beautiful pictures and exceptional areas.

I cannot express enough how pleased I am with my wedding day and a large part of it is because of the Hilton. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for amazing services, awesome customer service, great food, beautiful ballrooms, and cost effectiveness. GREAT value for the cost...GREAT :-)

I recently had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Hilton in Rockville and was blown away by the service and attention to detail. After reading the last review I was a little hesitant to book here but then I read further and realized that the bride was crying because she didn't get her room right away and had nothing to say about the wedding itself.
My ceremony was flawless. I did not have a coordinator but Riva Neam (sales coordinator) put everything together for me. She seemed tireless and paid attention to all the details. She made sure that me and my husband had time to ourselves in the holding room and showed us the ballroom before anybody else was in it.
And the food was amazing. People were raving about the filet and crab cakes. My mom ordered the vegetarian meal and even she was saying how great it was.
I could go on and on but suffice it to say that the wedding was executed flawlessly. Riva was truly the best. I know that her job wasn't to be a coordinator per se, but she was there for me throughout. I know what I compensated her surely wasn't enough!
As far as the hotel rooms were concerned, I didn't want to leave! A breakfast in the morning would have been nice, but I'll take what I can get!
Thank you Hilton!

Overall the venue was absolutely beautiful and was exactly what I dreamed of. There was a change over in staff but they picked off where the others had left. The food was delicious and the coordinator Kelly Flores did everything in her power to alleviate any stressors that I had. She was wonderful. The only thing was the banquet manager who did not discretely let us know it was time to go. We were having a wonderful time and he acted a little like a bouncer. However, the venue, the food, the sleeping rooms were absolutely perfect and I recommend working with Kelly and the Chef very much!

I've waited a couple of months to write this review so I could be more clear about what I wanted to say. This is a beautiful space and the value is decent for the DMV area being this close to DC. The rooms aren't a nice as other Hilton hotels, but this was previously an apartment complex thats been renovated to be a hotel. I would have preferred more natural lighting in the hotel room for getting ready. The food was great, probably some of the best hotel food I've had. Everything tasted like what we had tasted at the tasting except for one dish, but I guess we can let that pass. The day before and the day of, everyone was very professional and the front desk staff went out of their way to help us get settled. I would recommend this venue with a grain of salt-I had trouble communicating with people at this venue before the wedding with questions and concerns. Sometimes it took several emails and phone calls before a response.

I liked the atmosphere and rooms but I was not pleased with the event staff. The event coordinator from the hotel that worked with me and my wedding planner was not very professional. They canceled a tasting on the day of when my parents drove an hour to get there because a room was not reserved for it. It took a long time to hear back on emails about questions. A couple things fell through the cracks. I felt like we were not a priority because we weren't the most expensive wedding. The food was good and I liked the chef a lot. The room price for the block was extremely reasonable but the breakfast in the hotel was very expensive for most guests.
