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!

My husband and I were very pleased with The Double Tree Hilton and especially Katelyn (our catering sales manager)!! She was always very quick to get back with us when we had any questions regarding our reception. She was so friendly and easy to work with. She was so helpful with the planning and colors (linens) I told her I knew she would choose what looked best and it definitely did. My guests loved the colors and setup of decor :)

Our reception was about 200 people and Katelyn made sure everything went smoothly and as a bride I never had to worry and knew she would make sure all the decorations were placed out and looked fabulous before the guest arrived! The food was amazing. The chef did an awesome job. We had so many compliments about the dinner and how much they loved it all, especially the homemade cheese ravioli's :) The bartenders did a great job as well and there was never any long waits at the bar for drinks!

Travis and I were so busy with our guests and dancing during our reception that we didn't get much to eat...Katelyn made sure our complimentary suite had plenty of food waiting for us after the evening was over!

Overall, we were extremely pleased with all the staff that worked with us and helped make our special evening one to remember. We had many out of state family and friends stay at the hotel. Derek was awesome and extremely friendly. He was very helpful with booking our family and friends rooms and helping Travis and Me out with anything we needed! We also made welcome bags for our guests as they arrived and the front desk were on top of handing them out :)

I would definitely recommend Katelyn and the double tree hilton as a vendor! You will not be disappointed and they are very professional and they treat the bride and groom like they should be treated on their wedding day. We were the most important and well taken care of!

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at this location. It was AMAZING!

Katelyn (catering and sales manager) was very helpful and responded to emails/calls quick! She helped us with decor, linens, menus and etc. I told Katelyn my vision and she truly made it happen! It was all that I dreamed of!

Chef was great too. At the taste testing he made sure he had the recipes exactly right that we provide to him. The food was delicious! On the wedding day he even came out and served us and asked if everything was okay! We felt like movie stars!

The honeymoon suite was nicely decorated and we had a very comfortable stay. Some other staff members took really good care of us too and they were Cynthia, Richard, and Natasha. We were so happy with everything! I highly recommend this hotel for a of your services!

After searching and searching for wedding venues we decided to have our wedding ceremony at the Rose Garden (Raleigh Little Theatre) and the reception at the DoubleTree.

What originally caught my attention was the personalized wedding suite included in the wedding package and the group discount for out-of-town guests (we had a lot of them). The prices are reasonable (let's face it guys, weddings are expensive) and the service is amazing.

Katelyn really helped me find a good fit for both my budget and guest list. She was quick to respond to my emails and always had an answer for me. We had a few members of our wedding party that tried to reserve rooms past the group rate deadline, Derek was very helpful and willing to work with us to get the rooms.

I found the online system to be easy to use and it was really helpful to use the guest list manager tool to check in on reservations (you can also download a spreadsheet of the guests, rooms, days, etc.).

Katelyn helped me out with decorations and we were able to see the reception room setup the night before the wedding. I wanted to have disposable cameras at each of the tables and I made fabric flowers to use as centerpieces, my mom brought personalized bags of hershey's kisses. The staff setting up the reception did an amazing job fulfilling these requests.

I fell in love with the folks at CE Rental. They are a linen rental shop downtown and the DoubleTree does all of their linens through them. So many beautiful fabrics to choose from and the type of fabric you get depends on the wedding package you choose with the DoubleTree. They are very friendly and will take care of you!

The folks at the DoubleTree are very friendly too...and will definitely take care of you!

Free cookies at the front desk. Totally amazing!

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!

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!
