My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina in October. We had a phenomenal experience. Jesse, who is the event coordinator at the Hilton, was wonderful to work with. She was kind, enthusiastic, professional, and responsible. She was very patient and helpful in answering all our questions and helping us plan the logistics. The day of my wedding both my mom and I did not have to worry about any of the details as she took care of everything. Jesse - you are the best, thank you!!!

Our cocktail hour was in the Atlantic Ballroom and on the outdoor patio and our reception was in the Grand Ballroom -- all of these spaces are beautiful which helped us save money on flowers and decorations. For our meal, we chose the dual entry of filet and maui maui which was absolutely DELICIOUS!! Not only did the quality of the food impress us, but we were also very impressed with the catering staff in general. They had plenty of servers and bartenders which made dinner service run smoothly and on time. In planning for our event, we appreciated that the Hilton worked with us to get the important things that we wanted and still stay in budget.

We specifically wanted a hotel for our reception as many of our guests were from out of town. The Hilton formed a room block for us with discounted rates and our guests ended up renting about 60 rooms. The rooms were clean, modern, and reasonably priced. The Marco Suite were the bride and groom stay was breathtaking. Overall we were very happy with the hotel, but my only comment is that some of our guests had difficulty getting into the room block with the discounted rate. Jesse was wonderful in helping us sort out all the rooms, but I think they should have an easier process.

Overall we had a wonderful experience, they deserve the 5/5 stars :) Thank you!

The Hilton Marina and most importantly the catering manager Jesse Ramirez were absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend this as a wedding venue.
Jesse was one of the most essential people in making my wedding day so incredible and flawless. She has a way of listening to each and every detail that is important to the bride, groom, and family- and making 100% sure each detail is handled. She is extremely patient, calm, and pays very close attention to detail. She takes charge of staff and vendors in the absolute nicest and calmest way. She truly cares, which you will quickly see by how attentive she is and how much time she will put into your day.
My family and friends all loved the Hilton Marina- the atmosphere, the staff, and the food were all amazing!!

What an unbelievable experience. This hotel was more than accommodating and made all of our dreams come true. The hotel was beautiful and their staff was amazing. They made everything run smoothly and made me feel like I had nothing to worry about. Our food was unbelievable. I couldn't have asked for more. They exceeded my expectations in every way. We can't wait to go back for our honeymoon.

I don't think I can fully put in words how great this venue was to work with. They went above and beyond to make our event spectacular and with assisting our out of town guests. When we first met with the catering manager, Gaylene, we told her what we wanted and what our budget was. She came back with exactly what we wanted at a price lower than we expected. We were sold from that moment on. She is the reason we booked the venue.

The food tasting further solidified it. It was great to meet the general manager and head chef. Portion sizes to taste were great too.

The staff the day of the wedding were great. The food was hot and tasty. We received many comments about how great it was. The timing between courses was perfect, as soon as they picked up the salad plates, the entrees were being served. A server constantly kept our champagne glasses full and made sure we were doing well. No complaints at all.

Staff members remembered us and gave us extra attention for the 3 days we personally stayed there. We would definitely recommend this venue because they went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves.

The Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Marina was absolutely amazing! My guests can't stop talking about how amazing my wedding was. My ceremony was outside by the pool, which really worked well. I didn't have to overdo it on decorations because the pool area is gorgeous with lots of palm trees. The ballroom was beautiful and a nice size. The staff was extremely attentive. The catering manager, Gaylene Grimmer was really pleasant to work with. Plus the hotel looks like a cool Miami Beach hotel, but beats the prices of similar venues in Miami.

Being a wedding planner, I knew exactly what I wanted when it came to my wedding. I searched for months.... I spoke to every venue from West Palm Beach to South Beach that was on the water and ultimately chose The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina.

The on site coordinator at the time, Jennifer, was very confident that she could make everything I wanted happen. Her initial contact with me was actually what set this venue apart from the rest. Instead of just emailing me their standard packages like every other venue, Jennifer called me and asked me to tell her about my wedding. I was 100% honest and upfront... I told her exactly what I was looking for, that I was a wedding planner and exactly what I expected for my planning experience as well as my wedding day. With all of that information in hand, Jennifer went to work and a few hours later I had my dream proposal. Everything I had asked for and all within my budget.

Throughout the planning, Jennifer was fantastic to work with and made sure that every request I made was handled with care. When she left 3/4 of the way through, she put me in good hands with Jesse. Throughout the remaining 3 months prior to my wedding, Jesse handled everything that needed to be taken care of and made sure that my wedding was absolutely beautiful in every way.

There are honestly so many good things that I can say about this venue that I don't have enough room to list them all! However... the food is absolutely amazing, the entire weekend of the wedding the staff was amazing (everyone recognized us & did everything they could to assist us in any way), the hotel is gorgeous - in a beautiful location & has a great package price. It truly was a dream come true.

There were a few minor complications on the day of the wedding -- the wrong champagne was served & my wedding cake was not cut and served for 45 min -- but honestly those are drops in the bucket compared to how enjoyable every moment was. I would recommend the Hilton to any couple!
