We could not be more pleased with the service we received from the Hilton Garden Inn for our wedding reception! All of the staff made everything so stress free from start to finish. I literally can not even begin to explain how much Caitlyn from the Sales Team helped us from the very first meeting to the end of the reception. She was sure to leave no small detail unchecked and did an excellent job to make sure that everything ran smoothly. We couldn't have done any of it without her! With her help as well as the rest of the staff, our reception hall looked gorgeous. The food was also excellent and the waitstaff was very attentive. I couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out!

The staff at the Hilton were great! They were professional and very nice. We had some last minute oddball requests and they were so accommodating. Our guests enjoyed their stay at the hotel as well. I highly recommend this venue.

We had a good experience working with the Hilton Garden Inn to plan our wedding reception.

Caitlyn Mooney was our primary point of contact and responded to countless e-mails throughout the planning process. At times we did have to wait a bit to receive a responses and in-person meetings did not always begin at their scheduled times. In the end, everything was planned out just as we wanted and the delivery of services on the day of our wedding was very professional.

The ballroom our reception was held in looked wonderful. It was set up just as we planned and I cannot think of a single thing we were not pleased with. Caitlyn went the extra mile to ensure we were happy with everything and even added a touch of decor to our buffet tables so they were more festive.

The food and drink provided by the Hilton was delicious and we heard great things from all of our guests.

We had a very good experience with the Hilton Garden Inn, especially Caitlyn Mooney their wedding coordinator who went above and beyond to make our wedding our dream wedding. We are both Hispanic and wanted a menu that reflected our taste. Their chef worked very hard to customize a menu for us and it turned out great! There was some confusion during the planning process as their “Diamond all inclusive package” turned out not to be that all inclusive. However, during the reception the staff was remarkably good, the service was great and everything was exactly as I wanted, to the very detail. Worth every penny! A couple of minor incidents during the reception were handled very promptly, which demonstrated their ability to handle large events. Also Caitlyn’s surprise gift in our room was a very nice detail. It was a beautiful, memorable night, I would recommend this venue to everyone!

It was wonderful - we gave them all of the decorations and ideas we wanted for the reception and they did it. Didn't have to worry about setting up or tearing down the day of the wedding. Well worth the additional cost.

Working with the Hilton and their staff was a pleasurable experience. They took the stress and hassle of wedding planning away. The event coordinators for the Hilton were amazing. They offered advice and experience that I couldn't have otherwise gotten. I highly recommend them for any Bride to be.

The ENTIRE staff at the Hilton Garden were the most accommodating and helpful staff you will ever encounter! They made each decision (and each change we made) feel like it was the right one, making suggestions whenever appropriate, yet supportive of any that we made. The food was PERFECT and met our specific needs/requests! The room was set up perfectly and the staff made each and every moment there enjoyable. I can not express our gratitude or pleasure with each opportunity to interact with the Hilton Garden Inn in Champaign. Our wedding day was so much more than we could have hoped for and I KNOW a large part was due the them.
