My husband and I are happily married! We had a great honeymoon which I will review later. However the Hilton on city line ave in Phila was god awful, I really cant think of anything they didnt mess up? Maybe our names and cashing our checks :-/ The wedding planner Randy Schaller seemed like he was going to be fabulous, however once he got our signatures and our downpayment we couldnt find him, he never returned calls or emails. He made all these promises and kept none. Many guests were forced to stay elsewhere because they didnt hold the rooms promised, they forgot to hand out the guest bags I spent hours preparing which included a note for guests to join us for breakfast at 9am the following day, so only a few people who heard word of mouth showed :( Randy kept dissapearing all night, was innapropriate with male guests, made a rude comment about my grandmothers dress that left her in tears and if that werent enough the open bar ran out of beer! (leaving my uncles upset) Several guests got the wrong meals, and I spent a lot of time planning this wedding so for all this to go wrong was a nightmare. I was uphappy withour hotel suite as well, it was darka nd dingy, they didnt do anything special like rose petals on the bed.. they barely cleaned the room there was like a used tissue on the floor (not a huge deal but after allt he other stuff i was liek REALLY?!) The only good that came of this is I got to marry my best fried and have the most amazing honeymoon in Mexico at the excellence, that place is fantastic! So if you can, DONT HAVE YOUR RECEPTION AT HILTON PHILA CITY LINE!

Randy is amazing! I could not be happier that I had my wedding at the Hilton-City Ave. I know, it's City Ave, not Center City, but I could not imagine a grander, more beautiful wedding...and because it's not quite in the city, the prices are much better. The food is amazing and Randy really takes care of EVERYTHING from start to finish! The Garden Ballroom is one of the most beautiful, grandest ballrooms I have ever seen! All my guests were blown away, and we had a lot of people who had been to weddings at the fanciest of Philly's wedding venues and said that this was one of the best weddings they had been to. The white glove service was fabulous and I loved that the cake (which was delicious) was included in the price, as was the wonderful top shelf open bar with very skilled bartenders! The one downside is that there is no place for outdoor photos on the premises and it was too hot to go to Fairmount park or somewhere else to take outdoor photos. Please do not be turned off by the fact that it's on City Ave! The moment you pull up to the Valet Parking, you will forget where you are. It was truly a perfect event and it was SO easy to plan!

"What a beautiful wedding!" "The best I've ever been to" "Spectacular" As the mother of the groom, I got written notes from guests telling me what a wonderful venue it was and how they were going to host their child's wedding here. Randy, the wedding coordinator, was amazing--he kept us all together and organized---left nothing undone or less than perfect. And what a great value! It looked like a $100,000 wedding when it cost less than half of that. Very convenient for our out-of-town guests. I highly recommend.

With a man like Randy behind the scenes you have no wrong happening here. His service made you feel like you were the "ultimate princess" even before you're wedding day! The food and sevice was exquisite! The rooms are very nice! My guests were very pleased with everything this hotel had to offer. I recommend this to anyone!! I was between this and the four seasons... and they won by far... the service is great!

The Hilton really gave me my dream wedding. Pricey, but I definitely feel that we got every bit the perfect, classy, elegant event we paid for. The ballroom was stunning and the guests are still raving about the food. Our minister has been doing weddings for 40 years and he says it's the best wedding dinner he's ever eaten. Randy was extremely professional and responsive throughout the planning process, and so were all of our servers that night. I can't wait to come back as a guest at someone else's wedding here!

If I had to choose again, I would certainly go with the Hilton again for our Wedding. The hall was beautiful, and our guests were treated extremely well. The food was absolutely out of this world (well, what we got to taste because we were too busy having such a great time) - but everyone who came responded that the food was great. We had a few hiccups in securing enough rooms for our guests (it is a hotel - you would expect they would have plenty set aside for someone holding a large event at their facilities) as well as finalizing the menu. However, that aside, everything else was extremely well done and I was very happy with the services they provided.

There were problems with the menu- the meals were not as we had thought. Didn't have rooms ready in time.
