  • All my husband and I wanted was to be married by the water with a nice view and an awesome place for our family and friends to celebrate (PARTY) afterwards. The Hilton gave us all that and more.The wedding packages offered made things so easy to figure out and it was a huge bonus for us to not have to find a separate catering company....the food offered by the Hilton is amazing by the way. You have to try the Salmon according to EVERYONE who attended our wedding. Another thing we found extremely helpful, as long as you don't mind some limitations, is that the cake was built into our package price as long as we went with one of a few select bakers (the options are good ones!). This not only gave us suggestions on who to go with for the cake, but also eliminated a separate bill which is nice when you have so many vendors to work with. Now for the staff....We had the absolute pleasure of working with Katelyn throughout the process, who truly became more of a friend than anything before ... Read more

  • I couldn't have been happier with the service and expertise of my wedding consultant Katelyn Freeman! She was always there for me, through my worries and frustrations, she guided me, consoled me, made me laugh and I was so pleased with the help she provided. If you have chosen the Hilton and are lucky enough to get Katelyn as your consultant, you are guaranteed a beautiful, seamless event! Thanks Katelyn! Mr. & Mrs. Paul and Debi Mattison

  • Our wedding was about a month ago and Katelyn Freeman was our wedding specialist at Hilton Charlotte University Place. My now wife and I started on our wedding planning journey a year ago and we really couldn't have asked for a better person to coordinate with for our wedding than Katelyn! Not only did Katelyn help us with what seems like a million questions and requests while we planned for our wedding from out-of-state, she and her team exceeded our expectations as they executed the day-of schdule as planned in our detail appointment. For such a hectic day for the bride and groom, it was one less thing we had to worry about during the most important day of our lives. For any future newlyweds reading this, you will be in great hands with Katelyn. Thank you so much for everything Katelyn! Q+J. 4.22.2017

  • Our wedding has been and will always be one of the most memorable events of our lifetime. An immeasurable amount of hard work, time, and attention to detail worked together to make our vision a reality. Katelyn Freeman was one of the people that helped make our vision a reality and for that, my husband and I will forever be grateful. Through Katelyn Freeman’s example it is obvious that the Hilton Charlotte University truly recognizes and understands the impact of exceptional customer service

  • The Hilton Charlotte University Place was a great venue for our wedding! Emily's professionalism, patience, quickness to respond and thoroughness was absolutely helpful during our year of planning! I would recommend the Hilton Charlotte University Place to any couple because of it being a one-stop shop and due to the many recent upgrades at the location. Although it rained and we had to go with our Plan B, the wedding ceremony was still amazingly beautiful. Kudos to Emily and her team for making our day be one that we and our family and friends will remember for a lifetime! -F&S #FallintoLove #ARusticRomance

  • I cannot say enough about the Hilton Charlotte University Place! I stayed here a couple of years ago and it was a nice place, great location. But my last stay (August 10-14, 2016) was the absolute best place for my wedding. From the time, I started planning back in May up until the actual day, the process was seamless. My wedding specialist, Katelyn Freeman, was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! She was the ultimate professional and the sweetest person you could ever work with. She made planning the wedding from afar (literally across the country) effortless. Upon checking into the hotel, the staff was super accommodating and made sure everything I needed was taken care of. The hotel was completely sold out and was hosting several events and reunion but the staff was friendly and went out of there way to assist my husband and all of our guests (as if we were the only ones there). The rooms were clean and comfortable and property is well kept. The area itself has lots to offer and is easily accessi... Read more

  • We had both our ceremony and reception here and our wedding specialist was Rayna. Rayna was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond to ensure the days leading up to our wedding and our wedding day special. Everything was wonderful especially the staff. They were very attentive and they made us and our guest feel very special. My husband gave Rayna a run for her money with all the many questions and different request but she handled it effortlessly and went above and beyond to ensure we got everything we wanted. The food and drinks were a little pricey, but it was well worth it with the way the staff treated us and our guests. They made accommodations to fit us and what we were looking for and our expectations were exceeded!!! rayna you are the bomb girl!!!

  • Ms. Emily Bowers is one of the most dedicated wedding specialist. I got married on July 4 at the Hilton University and I am so glad I chose that venue and that she assisted me all the way. She was the most pleasant, outgoing and professional people I have come across. I do not live in the area so I did have to call or email to get a lot of items accomplished her quality of service and responsiveness was above and beyond everything I could have asked for. The catering was fantastic. I was very nervous because I have heard horror stories of hotel food not being so good. The Charlotte Hilton is definitely not one of those places everything they did for me and my husband was more than words could express. Will definitely recommend them for any function.

    Karlene, the pleasure was all mine! You were a joy to work with. I'm so glad the Hilton exceeded all of your expectations and that your night was wonderful! Best wishes to you both! -Emily Bowers, Wedding Specialist

  • Where do I even begin! The Hilton was beyond the perfect location for our Wedding this May! Working with Rayna (the wedding coordinator) was a blast! She was very friendly, down to Earth, and genuinely cared about our ideas and expectations. She not only listened but she delivered our dream wedding and the day flowed like only one couple could hope for! While Rayna was by far our favorite and she delivered such an amazing experience, she did not do it all on her own. The staff working at the Hilton also were encountered on multiple occasions. From the excellent customer service at the desk upon check in, to the staff that assisted during our dinner, everyone delivered a friendly smile and worked to make even the small things, very enjoyable. Let's not forget about the amazing kitchen staff who prepared our delicious dinner. Our guests are still raving about the amazing food!! Also, the night of our wedding we were given a complimentary room for the night. The room was very spacious, cl... Read more

  • We could not have picked a better venue for the wedding and the reception. We viewed a lot of venues before coming here. Once we came here, we knew this was the place. The wedding was outside by the water. Day turned out beautiful for an outside wedding. However, there was a backup plan in place. The cocktail hour and reception was awesome!! Everyone raved about the food. The staff at the Hilton Charlotte University Place were outstanding! The rooms were clean and ready when promised. I would highly recommend this place for a wedding!! They made sure that our daughter and our new son-in-law had the wedding of their dreams!Perfect place for a wedding!

    THANK YOU so much for the wonderful compliments, Linda! It goes without saying that both families were such a joy to work with. We are so happy that we were able to make their dreams come true! Keep in touch! -Emily Bowers, Wedding Specialist

  • If I could do my wedding again, I would choose the exact same place. I loved Rayna. She seemed more like a friend than the person that organized my wedding reception. She recommended a great decorator, Myrtle Williams of Simply Unique Designs! Everything was done beautifully. The hotel works well with Myrtle or vice versa. I don't know what happened behind the scenes. All I gave them was my vision and when I walked

  • My daughter's reception was at the Hilton University Place in the University ballroom. We worked with Emily Bowers who was such a sweet and enthusiastic event coordinator. The food that the chef customized to our tastes received numerous compliments. Everything was not perfect, as no major event with as many variables as a wedding has is perfect; what is important, however, is how the staff responded to any hiccups that arose. They were courteous, professional and stepped right up to correct everything in such a smooth manor that the bride and guests were never aware. My daughter and her guests were happy with a perfect evening.
