Nicole Dones,

I cannot express in this email how impressed I was and continue to be with the work of you and your staff. You were so creative, but also fiscally aware of the needs of my wedding party and I. What a fabulous combination! The venue, the staff, the room accommodations and the food were all perfect! Even with one minor problem, we had you fixed it and made it all look so easy, but I know how much work went in to making this the perfect Wedding/Cocktail Hour/ Reception ever!

Your professionalism, work ethic and dedication to ensure that I had the WEDDING of my dreams, did not go unnoticed and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.



You did a fabulous job of planning, presenting, managing and keeping me on task during a difficult time of me grieving the loss of my mother. You took care of my every need and want, just like my mother would have if she were here.

I want to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Ms. Darlene our server during the reception she was the best.

Nicole, having you and your guidance during this time has meant so much to me, you are truly a wonderful Consultant and I thank you for the GREAT work you do.

We absolutely loved the Double Tree for our wedding. We worked directly with the Catering Sales Manager Katelyn and she was absolutely wonderful. Anything that I needed throughout the entire wedding planning process she was there to help me with. Everyone that I communicated with there was very helpful, timely and professional. On the day of the wedding the even staff were wonderful and promptly provided everything that we needed or could ever want. The space was wonderful, the food was wonderful and everyone said that it was the best wedding they had been to in a long time. I would gladly recommend this venue to anyone.

This place is amazing and so is Katelyn Freeman. She made this process easy and painless. She is amazing and the staff as well as the service at Brownstone was amazing. My family and friends spoke so highly about the rooms and customer service at this hotel. The collaboration with CE Rentals is amazing, they had every color napkin and tablecloth you could ask for. The food was amazing and Chef was so nice and came and greeted us himself at our tasting. I love Doubletree and want to get married again just to do it all over. I have already recommended this place to a ton of people. Thank you Katelyn!

We had our wedding reception at the DoubleTree on May 30, 2015. We could not be more pleased with our selection of this venue. Specifically, we worked with Katelyn Freeman to plan our event. She is amazing! She pays great attention to detail, responds to emails quickly and truly made the process fun and easy. She really listens to your requests and helps make the event unique and special to fit your desires! When we went for a tour of the venue, they greeted us kindly and gave us a small bottle of champagne, two champagne glasses and warm chocolate chip cookies. Great first impression! The wedding package was all-inclusive: reception space including tables and chairs, dance floor, food, linens, set up, up-lighting, etc. You also receive a complimentary room the night of your wedding, but we chose to stay somewhere else, so my husband used the room the night before our wedding and stayed there with some of his groomsmen. DoubleTree does all of the set-up for you! You take in your materials the week of the wedding, go over how you would like things set up, and they take care of the rest! It was so nice to be able to know that it was in good hands and that all we had to do was show up on the wedding day. We did not have to buy centerpiece decorations, as we used materials that DoubleTree had including vases, jewels, candles, flowers, etc. All we had to do was buy a few more flowers and some floating candles. DoubleTree also provided utensils for the cake cutting and vases for the bride/bridesmaids flowers. DoubleTree truly thinks of the fine details of a wedding reception and takes care of all of those items. I wouldn't change a thing about our reception venue, decorations, etc. It was perfect thanks to DoubleTree and more specifically, Katelyn Freeman!

My husband and I recently hosted our wedding reception at this location and everything was so smooth. Katelyn the sales and catering manager was great to work with and made sure everything was good to go. We worked a lot with her before the event and she went out of her way to make sure my husband and i were satisfied.

The front desk was always friendly and nice, the rooms were clean and we didn't have any complaints from any of our guests staying there. The hotel was flexible to work with and didn't create and awkward restrictions.

Overall i would definitely recommend this place for anyone else hosting an event in this area!

I have no hesitation about giving Double Tree 5 stars for our wedding as they were amazing!

Katelyn Freeman was our contact at the hotel and she was absolutely the best. Quick to respond, open to crazy ideas (like getting married on the dance floor), and personalization of our package... she made the day go so smoothly and was a dream to work with! She met with us several times before the wedding and answered my many e-mail questions with no complaints!

The food for our reception was great and I heard a lot of compliments from our guests. The linens that came with the package were gorgeous and was very easy to pick out and use. All of the staff who worked the event as servers, bartenders, etc were so nice to work with and so helpful to making the wedding day flow. The hotel has a closet of centerpiece items that we took advantage of and personalized as well.

Our hotel room was also very nice and a perfect way to end the night!

In the end, if I had to do my wedding over again- I wouldn't hesitate to use Double Tree and would do everything the same! They treated me like their most important customer and made my wedding day perfect!
