Hilton Garden Inn Milwaukee Park Place
All I can say is THANKS to Corinne Kangas for being our last and final coordinator there! She was fantastic! She got back to me instantly with any questions I had and eased all my worries about the day of! It was a little sketchy at first since I went through multiple coordinators from the time I booked the hall until the wedding day, but Corinne definitely made up for any doubts I had! I just can't say enough how wonderful of a coordinator she is. She was even able to accomodate an unexpected guest less than 24 hours before our wedding!
She was there the night of the reception to make sure everything went smoothly and was there to greet me and make sure everything was to my liking
The food from Allgauer's was also AMAZING and my guests keep raving about it!! I am pretty sure everyone had a good time and enjoyed the food!
Thanks again for all your help Corrine, I really appreciate it and to the Hilton Garden Inn! Everything went as planned! :)
Robyn was very professional and responsive to my questions. I really appreciated the personalized service and would have never guessed that there were so many events going on at the hotel during the same weekend. My guests LOVED the food. I cannot say enough about the comments that I have received about the food, including the portion size, taste, quality, and white-glove service. All of my guests were extremely impressed. In my eyes, this was the best venue to have a reception.
WOW my son and daughter in law ceromony was exceptional. Robyn was really my anchor during the whole process. She was a sounding board affording me the opportunity to discuss everything with her. Nicole the travel manager also played an intricate role in making this day as perfect as it could be. The hotel front desk staff was so very helpful and personal .Ithank every member of the Hilton that played an role in this special day for my son
My wedding was May 14th, 2011 and I am SO HAPPY I chose to have it here! I used them for my ceremony venue and reception hall for 150 people. They put me in two sections of the Ballroom for the reception, with one of them set up for the ceremony: the size was perfect, no crowding. They turned the room over flawlessly. The cocktail hour was in the hallway outside the room: it was set up well, I'd suggest requesting extra chairs/seating for guest comfort but that's just preference. The reception food was SPECTACULAR, they moved us all through the double buffet line in less than 25 minutes. I also used them for cake instead of having a wedding cake as it was included in the buffet price: the strawberry cake was cut and served and so delicious, people thought I brought in cake from a bakery and asked who made it! Robyn Stryker is the new coordinator replacing Barbara Brown and she was perfect, I felt like she had everything under control. She introduced herself to the parents also, and assured everything we all needed she would take care of, which she did. We looked at everything from VFW halls to country clubs and while the minimum may seem high, ALL of the food and host-paid beverages go towards it. Given the exceptional quality of the food and how experienced and helpful and well-staffed they are, It is SO WORTH IT. My one complaint is that we were taking pictures before the ceremony and from the get-go requested (if possible) that the room be ready the night before for set-up, as the 2 hours before the wedding they slot for setup we would be photographed. Without getting too deep into it, there was no one booking the ballroom the 13th or morning of the 14th but nothing was set up for us, we had to rely on the staff to use our decorations. Which they did beautifully, but it was stressful and were I a perfectionist I would have been bothered that I didn't get things "my way". SUMMARY: Perfection!
i loved the hilton garden inn for our friday night wedding. barbara was the event coordinator for the hilton and was fabulous about bringing our wedding details together. she really listened to everything we wanted and was so flexible. the food/chef is *incredible*....we are STILL getting raves about how this was the best food people have ever had at a wedding months later! i would recommend this venue/team of professionals to anyone and everyone, you will not be disappointed!
