My Conference Manager Betty Akcam is the finest Planner I have ever worked with! I've have hosted/planned large events for over 20 years and she is the best! From our first meeting to discuss concept, Betty was warm and so accommodating. She worked seamlessly with all the departments involved in our event (Rooms, Audio, Catering). It was clear she was fully invested in the success of my event. She was full of inventive ways to use the space and our event last weekend has been getting raves! Betty was responsive to every call and every email which eliminated my anxiety. We made a few changes shortly before the event which required a new walk through with my Team and she handled it in a matter of minutes! Doubletree by Hilton, you have a gem in Betty Akcam and I hope you know it! We are already planning a holiday party and choosing dates for next year's Conference. The hotel has been recently renovated and the decor is super sharp! It will impress your guests as they enter and are offered a warm chocolate chip cookie, great space to hook up lap tops, have informal meetings or enjoy friends! Nice touch Doubletree! The banquet linens, the chairs and choice of contemporary centerpieces saved me a ton of money in rentals because theirs are so nice. The hotel is located close to everything (restaurants, airport, designer and discount shopping) but is off of a main road so it is wonderfully quiet. The rooms are beautifully decorated and appointed. One of our guest rooms was a Jr. Suite which was huge. It was perfect to work in because we had to assemble swag bags and other items and we were able to store them. The living room had a sleep sofa, it's own huge flat screen TV and a dresser. It closes off from the rest of the room which is great for privacy and storage. Facilities had every thing set up the night before so it was perfect for our very early set up. At the Front Desk I want to make sure to mention Shawn and Barry who were so warm and helpful to myself and our out-of-town guests! Carmen (one of our Banquet Servers) was fabulous and very helpful especially some of our elderly guests who couldn't maneuver the Buffet as well. Every staff member we encountered was attentive and helpful including Barry in Engineering who helped us out tremendously with a little "middle of the night" shower issue. Thank you Betty and Doubletree by Hilton! We will see you in a couple of months!
