We hosted our June wedding at the new Hilton, and could not have been more pleased with the experience! From the moment we chose them as our venue, the Hilton's catering dept., under the direction of Susan Khania, went every extra step to ensure that our Big Day was one to remember always.
The entire planning process was smooth and exceptional. Any request or minor detail was addressed and accommodated with utmost professionalism and attentiveness. Susan is a particularly amazing advocate, and lends both a professional and personal touch to everything involved with making the day that much more special.
The catering, through their own in-house kitchen at Chandler's, provided incredible food! We had salmon, chicken, and vegetarian main dishes with composed salads, appetizers, and signature cocktails...our guests could not stop complimenting on the food and drink! Service was top-notch and timely, and each member of the staff was wonderfully personable and at peak performance.
The grounds are gorgeous, and well appointed. Our ceremony took place on the north lawn adjacent to the main Shearwater Ballroom, and was separated from the rest of the resort. There is a beautiful view of the ocean, with occasional noise from traffic on Carlsbad Blvd. The ballroom itself is beautiful, spacious, and wonderfully appointed. The bridal suite was HUGE and lavish; everything about the resort is a treat. It was just a perfectly composed afternoon and evening. THANK YOU TO ALL!
