Working with Natasha and the DoubleTree Raleigh Brownstone was an absolute pleasure. She always had a smile on her face and was willing to go above and beyond to accomodate our needs. The ballroom was absolutely stunning and exactly what we had in mind. The food and service was spot on. Natasha worked with us over the course of a year to make sure everything was perfect, and it was. The guest rooms were updated, comfortable and clean. Pricing is very clear and reasonable. This is a wonderful, convenient venue and we would highly recommend it...especially if you get to work with Natasha!

To all Future Brides,

We (the bride and groom) would definitely recommend this vendor/venue. From the first time we set foot in this hotel all the way up to our wedding day we were beyond pleased!!!! Staff was professional, friendly, courteous, and on top of the job. Food is awesome! Lets not forget the DoubleTree signature cookies. We couldnt have picked a better venue to host our ceremony and reception (definitely met our standards). Way to go DoubleTree Brownstone. I hope to work with you all in the future!

My husband and I found this place by the Grace of God. We live 2 hours away from this location and it was difficult finding a place when we don't live in the area. Our Contact was Natasha - on of the Sales Managers. She was GREAT and she was able to accomodate every need we had - inlcuding our limited budget. This venue not only gives you a place to host your wedding reception or other event but we also got a suite for free just for giving them our business. AND we got a HUGE discount for our guest rooms for the weekend. I could not have made our special day as special as it was without the professionalism and superior service of this hotel staff. They were and are Phenomenal. Ask for a free (warm Choco Chip) cookie at the front desk. Superb! If you spend over 4k for a small to medium guest list, I'd be shocked.

Heather was great to work with planning my wedding reception at the Doubletree. She was flexible and very easy to work with! The reception was definitely first class! The room was decorated beautifully, the food prepared by the chef was delicious, the morning breakfast buffet is delicious, the hotel rooms are clean and comfortable! A lot of the family came in from out of town and we received only positive comments from everyone!

The catering staff at the hotel were amazing! We stayed in the hotel the night before the wedding, and gave them everything for the reception setup with instructions of what we wanted done. They went above and beyond for us! The decorations were so beautiful, and the food was amazing! We couldn't have asked for anything more!

The staff there was great. It was very convenient as most of my guests were from out of town. The ceremony room and reception room looked great and anything I needed they accomodated. The food was very good and our suite that night was great as well. I would definitely recommend this venue

The hotel staff was wonderful and worked with me when I changed my mind on something every week. During the reception, the staff stayed out of the way but was able to still do their jobs. The food was excellent and the fruit displays was awesome. I would recommned this venue for a bride looking to keep her budget low.

Doubletree-Brownstone was the perfect place for our wedding and reception! The entire staff was helpful from planning to actual execution of the wedding. Heather and Natasha were excellent to work with; they assisted us in planning the minor details of our big day and consistently stayed in contact with us from the time we signed the contract until after the wedding. Grace, banquet manager, and catering staff were so helpful and friendly. The food was delicious and was highly praised by our guests. When we did have a few issues, the staff at the front desk and managers quickly resolved the problems. The complimentary suites were spacious and very comfortable. Doubletree-Brownstone has a great reputation, and the ballrooms for our wedding were shared with another event. Initially we were worried about having the ballrooms set up on time; however, Grace and the banquet staff worked so efficiently to clean the ballrooms and set up for our reception, without any glitch. From beginning until end, the staff at Doubletree-Brownstone were there to help. We greatly appreciate everything they did for us and for our wedding. I would recommend Doubletree-Brownstone to anyone--wedding, birthday party, conference, and as a hotel stay. Thanks again!

We looked at a number of hotels in the Downtown area and we're really glad we decided on the Doubletree. The staff made the process really simple and our guests loved the modern new look of the hotel. The food was also excellent. Pay extra if you have to for the lighting and chair covers-it makes a big difference.

Very pleased with this venue. They had so many resources, free of charge, and the staff were SO great! Everyone I worked with was friendly and helpful. They were really on top of things and made my reception beautiful! If you are on a tighter budget but want a beautiful event, I definitely recommend this.

The Brownstone did a great job as the reception venue! Quite helpful and flexible throughout the entire process to accomodate our large numbers. Food was great and the room was beautiful! The service was excellent as well. Very nice catering staff! My only disappointment was the set up of the tables upon entering the room. It wasn't quite the way the schematic was drawn, and most of the guests were a lot farther from the head table than we imagined.

During all my meetings for my wedding which was held here, everything seemed like they would go on smoothly since all the details were being noted in a professional manner and the friendly staff that took care of me.
On the night before the wedding if I hadn't personally gone there at midnight I don't think my wedding would have been on schedule! Things were placed wrong (not small things- big, stage big!) with 2 staff members setting up. I let all that and more slip but after the wedding was over, I went in the next weekend to pick up items that I had left in their care for the wedding but some important things were missing. Plus, I had to make 4 to 5 separate trips just to get all of the items that they did manage to locate.
Apparently, some of them went home with another decorator, some were misplaced by the hotel staff and others are yet to be found! I almost feel like I should have gone with another hotel and things would have gone a lot smoother! I wouldn't be as upset if my things were just taken care of better! Till this day they have not attempted to replace them!
