The DoubleTree was the perfect location in every way for our daughters wedding and reception. From the first meeting with Amber and Kate, they were extremely helpful and a total delight to work with. They were enthusiastic and eager to make the day stress free. Any questions were answered very promptly and pleasantly. Their services are priceless. The location could not be more beautiful and the staff was amazing. Every single person we encountered was eager to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Many guest commented that it was an elegant, formal wedding, but did not feel stuffy because the staff was so personal. The food was absolutely fabulous. "Icing on the cake" was the convenience of a venue with luxurious accommodations for the bride and groom as well as out of town guests and even local guests that might choose to stay and extend an unforgettable downtown event. Anyone looking for a first class wedding and reception venue downtown Charleston need look no further. The location, the preparation, the service, the food, the attention to detail are simply perfect. The DoubleTree is everything you are looking for and more, all without the sticker shock one would expect. A special thanks again to the Wedding Specialist, Amber VanPatten for her delightful attitude, tireless preparation, and flawless execution, and to the General Manager, Sergio Roa and all the DoubleTree team for making us feel like royalty.

Booking our son and new daughter-in-law's wedding and reception at the Double Tree Historic District was the best decision we made. Amber was with us all the way from the minute we started looking at this venue until the wedding day. She was super responsive to any and all questions, and was an amazing resource for coordinating the entire event. Her recommendations of vendors, from the officiant to the photographer to the florist were all perfect such that we felt we had an entire team working just to make sure everything ran as perfectly as possible for our event. She even coordinated timelines with these vendors, making contact with each, as well as our chosen band and MC. If you want a one-stop venue in the center of historic Charleston where your guests can attend a courtyard wedding followed by a well-run reception in the ballroom, then spend the night without ever leaving the premises, you cannot do better than the Charleston Double Tree.

Kate was absolutely incredible with helping coordinate and execute our wedding day. All of our guests loved the venue and the amazing food!! We had a couple delays with the vendors and she made sure to handle them so I wouldn't get stressed. She made sure to that all the attendants were taken care of in the morning while we were getting ready. The staff was so warm and welcoming. We had a couple broken glasses on the dance floor and they were quick to clean up and make sure everyone was safe. I wish we could redo the entire night, it was that perfect. Thank you so much.

If your having a wedding in Charleston, this is the place to do it. It is centrally located in downtown Charleston on Market St. The hotel is amazing, boasting of every feature you could ever need especially for planning and out of town wedding like I did. With all of our family and friends flying in from other states there really was no better option. However, that is not the reason we chose this venue. We chose this venue for its amazing outdoor courtyard which is quaint, quite, and absolutely amazing! Everything else that came with the courtyard was a bonus for me. I worked very closely with the Catering Manager Kate Neville, who was PRICELESS! She made this process smooth and flawless. Considering that we did most of the planning through email and over the phone, Kate left no stone unturned and made sure that no detail was overlooked, no matter how small. From menu options, and suggestions to colors and flowers, Kate knew the ropes and was a seasoned professional. Once we arrived at the Double Tree, ALL of the staff from the Valet, Front Desk, to the Maintenance staff were all friendly, knowledgeable and so extremely accommodating. All of our family and friends were impressed by not only the hotel but by Kate and her staff as well. Everyone was professional, dressed for the occasion, and so full of the Southern charm we so dearly love. I must say that even though the weather did not cooperate with us and we had to move the wedding and planned tented cocktail reception indoors, Kate was irreplaceable in that process as well. She took care of every detail, working closely with my Maid of Honor, and they were able to turn an almost close call disaster into the PERFECT WEDDING! I HIGHLY recommend the Double Tree and Kate Neville.

Amazing wedding, Kate Neville and staff were attentive and took care of the bride as if she were a family member or close friend. The food was superb the service impeccable. We had 130 guests for a sit down dinner, with multiple entrees and the servers were flawless. Everyone got their food hot and exactly what they ordered. The courtyard was charming with an elegant atmosphere, passed horde reveres as well as fruit displays and cheese displays with open bar and 2 signature drinks. The ballroom was decked out in the brides colors or coral navy blue and ivory with lighting and linens provided by AV WIRED and BBJ LINENS. All professionally executed by Hilton's Double Tree best! Thank you almost seems understated, but many thanks. Melaina Kenny mother of the bride

From the day we decided on having our wedding at the DoubleTree all the way through to the day after our wedding, we had an amazing team. The venue was beautiful - since all of our families are up north, we knew Charleston would be the best place for a "destination wedding" along with the beautiful scenery and things to do! Kate Neville, our wedding coordinator with the DT, was absolutely AMAZING!! She went above and beyond for us and made sure everything we wanted was done and done the way we wanted. I couldn't have chosen a better place to have our wedding at :)

Kate and her staff were so pleasant and easy to work with. They were always accessible and very helpful in our planning. During the planning stage Kate's advice was extremely helpful and she gave us great suggestions for vendors when needed. We were from out of town so her guidance was so appreciated. She helped us plan the perfect event within our budget. When we arrived her staff was eager to help us unpack and store what was needed for our event. The hotel staff was very accommodating to us as well as our guests. The entire staff knew who we were and called us by name the whole weekend which made us feel very welcome (even the bellmen). The event ran smoothly and timely and we were able to enjoy the reception completely without any concerns. Kate made sure everything went as planned. The food was delicious and plentiful (especially the pasta station...it was quite a hit)! All the guests were very complimentary of the staff, service, accommodations and food. The bride's comments were that everything was perfect and she wouldn't have changed a thing!
The location is incredible! Many of our guests had never been to Charleston so location was very important to us. It is right by the Market, restaurants, historical buildings, tours, shopping and entertainment. We didn't get in our car except to drive to the church.
I would recommend this venue to anyone!
