Perfect & Amazing
I had my reception at the Sterling Ballrooms this past weekend, and it was perfect and amazing! I really don't have the words to say how amazing everything was. Whatever is better than amazing is, is what the Sterling Ballroom is. Ali was like a god send! She answered every one of my million questions in such a timely manner I don't think she took a day off from start to finish! Then Nemo made sure that the room was not only what I pictured it to be but BETTER!!!!!! The Team there is a first class, A+ team. Based on the service I got and the value of the event I still can't believe it all. My mind is still blown!
Since the event, every guest I spoke to has raved about the food. How great it was, how much there was, how perfectly cooked it was! I could not be happier with the choice to have my wedding at the Sterling Ballroom.
I did have some bumps along the road with the actual hotel side of the event. I would make the suggestion of spending a little bit more time to ask away for the DoubleTree sales team and to make sure that everything is covered. I had a couple issues with the reservations, the overnight bags, the bar staying open etc. But I did get a great rate and the rooms were modern, clean and roomy.
Over all I was very happy - and can not say enough wonderful things about the reception, and that is what really matters. The Sterling Ballroom made my wedding amazing! Ali and Nemo are 100% dedicated to making sure that your day is everything you want and more!
Everything was perfect
Everything about my wedding was PERFECT. Victoria, Ali, and Nemo were absolutely WONDERFUL. All my guests raved about the food and the service during cocktail hour and the reception. Ali made sure that everything was perfect, and Nemo followed through the rest of the night making sure that everything went off without a hitch. My fiance and I were on a very tight budget and we looked at many many venues, and we know that as soon as we visited The Sterling Ballroom, that we were going to book right then and there. It is absolutely beautiful and they have so many food and accessory options, you can make your wedding as personalized as you want.
Absolutely the best!
My name is Dave. My wife and I got married on 10/19/2013 at the DoubleTree. We had an excellent wedding and DoubleTree did a fantastic job. The amount of food that we received in our package was more than any place that we saw. The quality of the food was better than places that were charging $150 a head. The best part of the package was the price! Victoria, Ali, and Nemo did a better job then I was expecting. Nemo was on top of everything during the ceremony and reception. We highly recommend the DoubleTree for anyone that needs a venue. 5 stars and beyond!
It's been almost 3 weeks since my wedding, and I am still overwhelmed with happiness. My experience could not have been better! When I first started planning, I realized I was not a typical bride - suddenly all the "childhood dreams" of a wedding seemed ridiculous and unimportant. However, those feelings definitely faded after I started working with Victoria and Ali, and turned into an excitement I can't really believe or describe.
I was lucky enough to come across the DoubleTree as a venue option through an email and as soon as I called, I felt really comfortable and relieved. They were very open with me and accommodating to my crazy schedule. I loved the menu options and was surprised to see what an amazing value it was. After seeing the "wedding wing" of the hotel, the beautiful rooms, and the Sterling Ballroom itself, I knew I had chosen the right place. It only got better from there. I had lots of questions throughout the process and they were able to answer all of them promptly. They always greeted me with a smile and made me feel welcome even when I showed up twice a week at some points! Throughout the process, they helped me to stay calm, happy, and made me see what an enjoyable experience the day could be.
The wedding day itself could not have been more perfect. Despite all the rain during the week, we got an amazing window of sunshine and were able to hold the ceremony outside. Kevin was very patient with me going back and forth about whether to hold it inside or outside and trusted me with my crazy seating idea of having the chairs on the walkway. Nemo and Dineen kept things running smoothly with the DJ and the food service and helped us every step of the way. If anything was out of order that day, we had absolutely no idea, nor did any of our family or guests. Our guests have actually called us and thanked us for such a perfect wedding! They are still raving about the food, the service, the atmosphere, the lighting, the friendly vibe of the staff, the ease of the day, and even the chair covers! It was absolutely beautiful and perfect! My ONLY regret is that I did not double-book it for an extra hour - or four! :)
Our room that night in the Governor's Suite was breathtaking. I am so happy we were able to have our wedding here. Still smiling!!!
A Wonderful Evening
Wedding Date: 9/27/2013
I can't help but to thank both Victoria and Nemo over and over for such a wonderful evening they planned and flawlessly executed for our wedding. Victoria came into our planning process halfway through and did not miss a beat. All correspondence was handled in a timely manner, any request was handled without hesitation, and she left us without worry as our big day approached! The food was spectacular, the service was second to none, and all of our guests wouldn't stop raving about their entire experience! I would recommend the Sterling Ballroom to any bride who is wavering on where to celebrate their special day... look no further!! They are truly the best in the business!!
Everything was amazing
I had my wedding at the Sterling Ballroom on 10/11/13, and I cannot express how happy I was with how everything turned out. Victoria & Nemo were amazing, and I'm grateful for all of their hard work (staff included). I have to give Victoria a little extra love because she took over a few months before my wedding because our original planner had left the company, and I was a little nervous, and she assured me that my wedding was going to be perfect, and it truly was. When I first started venue shopping, I was getting quoted ridiculous amounts of money and started to get discouraged because my husband & I were paying for the wedding ourselves. When I found the Sterling Ballroom, I was floored with how reasonable their prices were that I had to see the venue asap! The venue was exactly what we were looking for. It was modern and very classy, and we booked right then and there. It was the first and last place I looked at, and I'm so happy we had our wedding there. My guests are still talking about how amazing the food was and the huge dance floor and lighting set the mood for all my guests to be up and dancing all night. This venue had everything you could want without having to break the bank! The hotel rooms being connected was beyond convenient. My guests loved that and the rooms were beautifully updated too. I definitely recommend having your wedding here and look forward to attending another event there!
Perfect location for my wedding
The Sterling Ballroom was the perfect location for my wedding. The venue was beautiful, hotel service was great, and of course the food was AMAZING. The extravagant cocktail hour is a crowd pleaser for sure. Victoria S was so helpful, along with the rest of the staff. Great people to work with!
Everything was amazing
Thank you to the Sterling Ballroom for an amazing wedding experience. Ali, Kristina, and Nemo were all absolutely amazing. They take their jobs seriously and are dedicated to providing great customer care.
We originally booked with another coordinator, who ended up transferring jobs. She gave us an AMAZING deal on the venue. Then Ali started and helped to set up all of our menus and extras for the wedding. She got back to us quickly with any questions and was very understanding of us since we were planning from out of state.
Kristina was awesome. My guests are all procrastinators and ended up booking rooms the very last day and some the day after. Kristina made sure those guests were all together in the hotel and also booked me for two nights in the Bridal Suite (which is amazing, has a living room, bed room, 2nd bedroom, and HUGE shower) at a reasonable price since I wanted to have my girls get ready there.
Nemo was amazing. The other servers and him were there anytime I needed ANYTHING. They all set up the room beautifully, and I felt at ease the day of because they truly did an amazing job. My sister and a guest came up and told me about a rude bartender who shooed them away from the bar for ordering too many drinks for their table at cocktail hour. I told them to tell Nemo. He handled it immediately without a scene. I can honestly say, other than that one bartender (who I didn't even see), everyone was amazing. Nemo even brought all the gifts and decorations that we had provided up to our suite. And when we got in for the night, we had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne waiting for us.
Because of the amazing staff, the night went smoothly, and I was able to relax and enjoy the crazy day.
We had spent 2 months looking at pricey venues with high maintenance wedding coordinators that really made us feel if we weren\'t spending $20,000+ on our wedding, then they really didn\'t have time for us. We even began researching having a backyard wedding to try and keep within our price range. Everything changed when we went to the Sterling Ballroom at the DoubleTree. At first glance, I was blown away. The ballroom is magical. Tastefully decorated yet elegant. It had wonderfully high ceilings with beautiful chandeliers. The ballroom is spacious with a perfect size dance floor. I fell in love with the room, but was hesitant to hear the pricing. I had been in this position before where I would start seeing my wedding in beautiful ballrooms only to be let down by the greediness of local wedding venues. When we sat down with Ali & Victoria, I loved them! Their energy was unmatched. After going over the reasonable pricing with them, I finally could commit to my love for the DoubleTree. Having our wedding in the Sterling Ballroom was within our price range without compromising all that we wanted for our big day! We were going to have our dream wedding. Little did we know Ali & Victoria were going to surpass our dreams. The generosity that they showed us still blows me away. They are organized, informative, and fun! They left no stone unturned.
On the day of the wedding, I didn\'t have to worry about a thing! Our cocktail hour and reception was perfection. Nemo and his crew set up everything with such taste and beauty. The rooms were picture perfect. Again, so much generosity. The portions are incredible, and everyone at my wedding raved over the food. Seeing as we got married in a very popular wedding month, my guests were able to compare the food at the DoubleTree to other local venues... Unanimously, our wedding at DoubleTree was the most delicious. This made me so very pleased seeing as i am a self accredited foodie.
Overall, my husband and I had our dream wedding. Our friends and family were able to share in the magical day and we are so so very happy with the exceptional professionalism from everyone at the DoubleTree.
Our Picture Perfect Wedding
I cannot say enough about our wedding at the DoubleTree. It was fun, organized, elegant, and carefree. The service we received before, during, and even after our wedding was phenomenal. Victoria and Ali helped my husband and I plan our big day. They are a winning pair. From the moment we met them, they gave us supreme service. They are fun, energetic, and generous. We had seen so many venues and spoken with so many wedding coordinators, and it wasn't until we met Victoria and Ali did we realize how important it is to love the people representing the venue.

WOW... when I told close friends the price/person they couldn't believe it.
My husband and I are already thinking of reasons to go back to the The DoubleTree to host a party. Also, we are so excited because his holiday party for his company is at The DoubleTree and we can't wait!
