Whether you envision a breezy garden affair, a sleek city soiree or a traditional banquet, the DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown offers elegant wedding facilities and the professionals to help you create the perfect romantic day.

Located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles near renowned museums, theaters and cultural attractions, the newly renovated DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown is a distinguished cosmopolitan hotel marked with chic Asian influences. Upon arrival, the tranquil aura of our open lobby will immediately transport you to a world of calm collection. You'll quickly forget that the bustling excitement of Los Angeles is just steps away. The DoubleTree by Hilton Los Angeles Downtown offers the perfect selection of customized backdrops for your wedding. Our most distinguished venue is the lush half-acre acre outdoor Kyoto Gardens. Situated on the third floor of the hotel, this Zen oasis replicates an ancient garden in Tokyo. Towering bamboo, flowering foliage and waterfalls trickling into calm pools subtly frame the vibrant Los Angeles skyline. The garden is comfortably suited for 200 guests.

The Golden Ballroom is ideal for a wedding with up to 300 friends and family. Elegant and modern, the Golden Ballroom features tall ceilings and plenty of space for dancing the night away. Couples planning a more intimate wedding will find contemporary alternatives for their wedding reception in our Thousand Cranes Ballroom and Kyoto Gardens.

It was a wonderful experience having our wedding reception at DoubleTree Los Angeles. On top of that they have an amazing event coordinator, Gloria. She's very accommodating and easy to work with. She will discuss with you every details and help you step by step. Our wedding preparation wouldn't be easier without her help. She made sure all our needs was attended. She really listens to you. She gave us a lot of complimentary rooms that we needed before and after the wedding. The hotel itself is a very beautiful venue especially their garden, where we held our photo shoot. It's a great location knowing its by downtown Los Angeles. My guests were really awe with our venue. I highly recommend the location not only as a wedding reception venue but to those who are looking for a garden wedding venue.

We had an amazing time planning and having our wedding with the help of Gloria and Liz. These girls are amazing and made our experience magical.

The hotel staff were great, food was amazing and the hotel made a big impression on my family and guest.

The photos you get from the Kyoto garden and skyline view of Downtown LA along with my beautiful wife is worth $1M bucks...

Originally I was about to book DoubleTree in Monrovia but then I met up with Gloria at a Wedding Event at The Convention Center && I fell in love with the gardens && with her spunky personality!
So we decided to go with this venue!
Best Decision && Worth Every Penny!

Gloria && Liz ( her beautiful, awesome assistant) we're helpful throughout the whole wedding process.
They exceeded our expectations && made our day Theee most perfect day!

Thank You for your promptness!
Planning a wedding can be pretty hectic I'm glad I had Jenny (At Your Door Events, Wedding Planner) && you two ladies ensuring everything was smooth!

If something went wrong that day I sure never found out about it!
Thank You Gloria && Liz!
Forever Grateful,
The Mikhailidis

My then fiancé knew we wanted a garden ceremony and an indoor reception. We visited many different places throughout the city, and are so happy we chose the Doubletree for our wedding! First, the Asian garden is absolutely beautiful- the perfect space to accommodate our party which was about 110. Second, Gloria, the catering manager, was absolutely fantastic! She was always available, on top of everything, listened, and offered suggestions which were in alignment with what we were looking to do. She and her entire team were great from the time we booked until the end of the reception! Lastly, for all that our wedding package included, the price was definitely considerably more reasonable than other places which didn't offer nearly as much. My now husband and I have wonderful memories of our wedding day, largely because we got married at the perfect place!

We got married on the rooftop garden and had our reception in the large ballroom on august 27. First of all, the venue was absolutely beautiful. I was a little concerned as to how well 150 guests would fit in the garden, but they made it it happen! And the indoor ballroom was stunning and turned out beautiful in pictures. Li-ling Li, our catering and event manager, was an absolute treasure to work with! Very responsive and got everything right with table placements and linens, and she has a wonderfully warm personality. The food was delicious ( steak, lobster, Polynesian salad), and the price point was perfect!!

The Kyoto, and its catering department, are nothing if not flexible. What sets them apart is their willingness to make your needs paramount. While other venues can be limiting and their staff a bit snobby, The Kyoto aims to please. I daresay they go above and beyond, bringing to bear a work ethic rarely seen in a place where even struggling artists can afford to be wed. If this place is trying to make a name for itself, it certainly has the right staff to do so.

I'd suggest using the in-house wedding planner that they suggest, it will make your life, and the caterer's, much easier and have things go more smoothly. This isn't to say that you must have a planner, but since the policy here is to afford you as much flexibility as possible, you may find yourself floundering about without someone to hold your dream together beyond the walls of the hotel, where the catering departments responsibilities end. That said, our experience with Dave Alexson (the current head caterer) was so agreeable that I daresay the man could make a good living as a wedding planner if his responsibilities weren't to the hotel's wedding department. This is the type of place that, if you have a sinus infection, you'll also have someone there to walk you to the nearest doctor.

Top marks for this venue, and many thanks to the staff and especially to Mr. Alexson.

It was a pleasure to work with Ayda Ohan and Rosalind Pargas in coordinating guests for my daughter's wedding. Ayda and Rosalind were extremely professional and flexible in booking many rooms for our family and friends. Juggling everyone's schedules can be quite challenging and it was very seamless working with Ayda and Rosalind. They both game me peace of mind during a very hectic time.

We even received Complimentary champagne and strawberries to our room and our daughter's room upon arrival...that is in addition to the hot chocolate chip cookies :)

Our stay was a wonderful experience and we would all highly recommend The Doubletree by Hilton
