The Hills Hotel is a great boutique hotel with an exceptional reception crystal ballroom and a unique and one of a kind ceremony venue! My new husband and myself were counting down the months to this wedding....and it literally came out to be the wedding of our dreams! I can't explain to you how much everyone was so helpful through out the entire process from our first time we checked out the venue all the way up till the day after our wedding! The owner is a very nice man and we are so pleased to have met him and he complimented us on our wedding as one of the best he has seen and it meant a lot to us but it wouldn't have been possible with out The Hills Hotel! Both Robin and Sara the managers and coordinators were great to work with through out the entire process and day of! We received so many compliments about the venue, food, bar and hotel itself from "wow this looks like David Tutera", "You guys had a Kim Kardashian Wedding" and "That was the best wedding we have been too".......all of that means more than anyone can know to us. But most of all it was because this hotel provided us the grounds to make everyone say those compliments. THANK YOU TO THE ENTIRE STAFF AND OWNERS AT THE HILLS HOTEL for making our wedding so memorable and the wedding of our dreams! It was to die for, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Cheers! ****HIGHLY RECOMMENDED****

This place was amazing! I really didn't want my reception to be held at a hotel because of the hotel feel but this hotel venue is totally different.It is newly re-modelled. Very contemporary, spacious and glamorous! Our visitors can't stop talking about how glamorous and elegant the wedding venue was and how they all had a great time. A perfect place for a couple planning to get married. The hotel atmosphere will surely add extra memorable experience on your wedding. Highly recommended.

The Hills Hotel is a very unique and beautiful venue. We loved it and were happy to have help our wedding there! Like most places, there are pros and cons to any venue. The Hills Hotel provided something unique and a great space. Beautiful cocktail area, gorgeous chandeliers, great food selection, cake included in the package, chiavari charis, and for the most part friendly staff. One thing to be caution of: ask a lot of questions and confirm # of items they are "including." We were told that the venue can accommodate 200 people and they provided the chairs, but then when we selected the chairs they offered, they only had 120 of them. So we had to go out and rent more chairs, which meant another expense, additional coordination and another vendor to add to our growing list. I was not happy about that. The appetizers for cocktail hour was VERY overpriced, but the dinner for the reception was priced decently and was actually quite good! I'd eat it again and would be happy to eat their food at any wedding. They included a "honeymoon" suite, which was spectacular. Their rooms are all very unique, boutique-style that make you feel you're on a cool getaway weekend. They also provided a room block for our quests and a discounted rate, which was appreciated by our guests. Overall we are very happy with our experience at The Hills Hotel.

What a beautiful place The Hills Hotel is! Our wedding turned out fantastic and we were so happy. We got married downstairs in the Garnet Room, had cocktail hour upstairs, then moved into the Crystal Ballroom for the banquet and dancing. Everything was superior! We would like to note that we originally were to marry on Feb 9, 2014 but do to a tragedy in the family, needed to postpone to May 17, 2014. The Hills staff graciously moved the date and kept the rates exactly the same as they were for the Feb date. We are so grateful. We would do the wedding there again in a minute and highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. Thank you so much!!

We chose this location for the Crystal Ballroom. It is gorgeous. The Hills Hotel is not a huge location, but it has a very modern and classy feel. There is nothing really scenic on the outside, but inside is beautiful.

I fell in love with the Hills Hotel the first time we started looking for venues and I knew that I had to have our wedding there. The staff is great and Robin Mofid (event manager) was fantastic!!! Although she was not the original person we signed the contract with she was very helpful and exceptional and helped us with reviewing every detail. She made the wedding process very easy and the day of went very smooth.

We booked this hotel for our guest accommodations as well as for our Honeymoon Suite. The rooms were nice, the hotel decor was very nice and modern. The lobby bar was also fun to hang out in after the reception was over. The breakfast buffet was okay, a bit over priced for the options. Overall a nice choice for us.

I had my wedding here recently and my friends and family had the best time ever thanks to my vendors (DJ, photobooth, etc)! However, I am giving a bad review because of the wedding/event coordinator, Maria. She was a nightmare to work. In short, she interrupted several photo shoots to go over last minute details that she forgot to ask earlier (including one of my mom helping me put on my dress), she was never organized during our prep meetings (hence that last minute questions), she had a little attitude when talking to my bridal party, she was unprepared at my rehearsal making us late to our dinner reservations, and she didn't check with vendors before the wedding to make sure the amount of power they needed could be supported. We had fuses blow out 30 mins before the wedding and she denied that she was supposed to check into this prior... we have the emails to prove that she said she would check on it. Luckily our DJ saved the day and coordinated the vendors to make sure the room could support the power... that was not his job, it was the coordinator's job! Don't book here until she is replaced... it will save you a lot of headaches!

Maria Miller and her team, at the Hills Hotel were absolutely great!! They went above and beyond meeting our wedding needs! Maria is so knowledgeable and very patient with all of the "surprises" that came along with our event. Her staff was very attentive and consistently made sure that my groom and I, as well as our guests were well taken care of! To add, The Hills Hotel is such a glamourous venue that has so many decorative details, that it truly helped to make our wedding beautiful!! My guests were amazed at the beauty of our ceremony and reception space! I would definitely recommend Maria Miller and her entire team for future business! They're great!!
