  • Originally we booked with the Hilton in April of 2019. Lynell and her team was phenomenal with helping us through the process. Come March of 2020 there were a lot going on in the world that impacted many things. Well Wendy became our main point of contact and she helped work out everything and was completely flexible with making our day magical but also safe for the times. Wendy and the Hilton went above and beyond for us, the level of how they worked with us is unheard of. We absolutely loved Wendy! The service team was impeccable, Damien was phenomenal and so was Mary! We got so many compliments about the Hilton and guests felt taken care of and my husband and I felt like celebrities! The venue is gorgeous, everything turned out beyond perfect! The food was so good, we had tons of compliments on how yummy the dishes were from guests. The Hilton took care of everything! We had our rehearsal in the garden grill, ceremony in the sundeck and the reception in the ballroom. It was so nice ... Read more

  • Our weekend wedding at the Hilton Garden Inn Virginia Beach Oceanfront Resort was perfect! Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and stressful however our coordinator Katelyn Topping helped make our experience so smooth and relaxing. We are so grateful for all of the help she provided in the whole process and making our special day so memorable.

  • Lynell and her team were just hands down the best!! From valet all the way to the wait staff, they were so nice, professional, and very helpful. My guest are still talking about the venue and how the staff was so nice and the atmosphere was breathtaking. Lynell and her staff know exactly what they are doing. I was very comfortable with her through the entire two year planning process especially with me being an out of town bride. I had no doubts in my mind about letting her take control and I trusted her opinion and judgement all the way. This venue and team were exceptional. We had an amazing beach wedding without the sand. You can't go wrong with them!!!

  • Lynell and Kaitlyn were both great in helping to make the wedding of my dreams come true. They were extremely responsive to all questions, never got mad about last minute changes that came up, we’re extremely organized and were easy to work with. The rest of the staff were all extremely polite as well and did a very good job with everything. I highly recommend them for any event!

  • The Hilton Garden Inn VA Beach Oceanfront was AMAZING!!! Lynell, Katelyn and team were very attentive, proactive and such a pleasure to work with! The staff at the hotel the entire weekend was better than I can review!! I can't rave enough about them!! Every single staff member was fantastic! It truly says a lot when the staff remembers our guests names and go out of their way to ensure our guests had everything they needed. The customer service was perfect, AND the hotel itself is so beautiful!! We were supposed to have our ceremony on the 3rd floor sundeck (which is gorgeous) but due to the weather, it was held in the ballroom. We are so impressed with how smoothly the transition went from the ceremony to the reception. The entire weekend was seamless, including the rehearsal dinner! I can't say enough about the team at the Hilton Garden Inn! I would 100% recommend this team, and the property!! 5 stars from my husband and me, as well as all of our family! Thank you, Lynel...

  • Though this was a pricey venue, it was well worth the money! Our wedding was so beautiful here. Even though we ended up doing the ceremony inside due to rain it was still amazingly beautiful. The staff here is top notch! Literally the nicest most hardworking people I have ever come across! Lynell and Kaitlyn helped us so much with the planning process. And all of the staff that set up, the wait staff, and the bartender took care of my guests and were amazing. Thank you all for making our special day so special!!

  • We had our ceremony and reception at the Hilton Garden Inn Virginia Beach Oceanfront last weekend and it was AMAZING!! We met with Lynell more than a year and a half ago and from the very first meeting, she was professional, transparent and super sweet! She laid out all of our options and we loved the customization of this venue! When we left our first meeting, me and my now husband knew this was the place that we wanted to get married. Throughout the process Lynell, Katelyn and Kara were so responsive to all of our emails and they were always so pleasant on the phone. I loved that they were just as excited for our wedding day as we were. Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect! Though the rain wouldn't allow us to have the ceremony outside on their beautiful sun deck, the staff transformed the ballroom into a beautiful ceremony space! More than I could have ever dreamed of! Lynell made sure to check on us during the night which we really appreciated! All of the staff tha... Read more

  • The Hilton Garden Inn Virginia Beach Oceanfront was everything I could ever hope for in a wedding venue. I had toured several venues prior to visiting Lynell at the Hilton Garden Inn but none really felt right. It didn't matter though, because the minute I walked into the Hilton Garden Inn, I just knew. Everything about the Hilton Garden Inn is perfect. The view is breathtaking and the hotel itself is beautiful, and my guests are still raving about the crab cakes and filet mignon. But what I loved most was the staff. I cannot say enough about how accommodating Lynell and her staff were during the entire process. Thank you so much for being so caring and friendly from start to finish!

    Wow, thank you Maizel! She were such a pleasure to work with and I truly enjoyed bringing your vision for your special day to life! We appreciate the kind words and am estactic it all worked out so well! You looked amazing too! We look forward to keeping in touch! Thank you again and best wishes to you, Mickey, family and friends! Sincerely, Lynell and entire HGI team

  • So far everything is just fantastic. We looked at so many reception venues and because our wedding is small, approximately 50, most venues wanted to place us in a conference room which looked horrible. The Hilton Garden Inn has an amazing space for small weddings. There is the separate space for cocktail hour, which was important to me, with a gorgeous view of the oceanfront. We looked at the guest rooms and they are just as nice. Our questions are always answered promptly and could not have asked for a better experience thus far.

  • Lets start with the positive. The venue is gorgeous and is beachfront and the food is amazing. However, myself and my wedding planner had to consistent communication issues with Lynell, the venue wedding planner. I live in Charlotte and traveled to VA Beach to hand pick my colors for linen 6 months prior to my wedding. However literally up to two days before my wedding we were being asked what colors I wanted and then were told the colors i picked six months before were not available. Additionally, email communication was horrible. We were nickled and dimed for EVERYTHING! It was like she was purposely trying to run up our check. Oh and don't forget the 22% taxes and fees added onto EVERYTHING. We paid $6.50/chair for gold chavari chairs at the reception, however when we arrived the chairs were silver and I didn't know until we made our reception entrance. Let's not forget that 10 minutes into my reception one of the servers knocked over the display in front of the sweetheart table, w... Read more

I pride myself on being completely transparent with pricing as well as available throughout the process as necessary to get all details correct.

  • Tell them your budget up front and insist that you get it your way. We overspent because of the heavy insistance from the catering dept. The day of was great but they are slow to respond to communication/emails unless it has to do with paying them. They don't care what is going on in your life as long as they get paid. The wedding coordinator we started with quit then there were 2 other people working our wedding without warning or notice. It was a huge mess for awhile. Also, the pricing listed is double those prices

    Mikole and Kayzie, I truly enjoyed helping you plan your unique wedding! I know it was challenging for you to plan your special wedding while also bringing your baby into the world. I apologize if you feel you were not well informed of the charges along the way, as I pride myself on being transparent in all areas especially regarding costs. The prices have been the same throughout the experience, so I am surprised to hear you felt like things doubled. The only thing I can figure that may have been unexpected is that you added lovely accent lighting to the space that was not apart of the food and beverage minimum that was originally contracted. Though I was not the one that booked this event with you back last year, I hope that my efforts with our multiple wedding tastings, conference calls and meetings were enough to set you at ease. If there was anything I could have specifically done better, I wish for you to let me know directly. I understand the feeling of not working with the same person in the beginning as to when your special day came can be unnerving (it happened to me too), but the staff members were promoted within the company and with my experience I hope you felt taken care of. There may have been a transition, but I welcome the feedback so that we can improve for the future. Thank you again for hosting such a fun and memorable wedding where your guests were all dressed up and apart of the entire #House Dorig experience. Best of luck in the future!

  • My husband and I recently got married at the HGI and it was beautiful!! They have many different areas to have a wedding in its entirety which was very convenient with many out of town guests coming into town. The catering/event manager will be your point of contact, along with two assistants. My only recommendation is to make sure all three catering/event staff are copied on all emails so all details are covered and they all are aware. Keep yourself organized so you can always look back when reviewing details with the hotel staff. Overall, the day went as well as we planned and it was all smooth and our big day was everything we hoped for. The staff of the hotel made sure everyone was happy and we, the bride and groom, were taken care of with food and drinks all night.

    Hello Kaitlyn, We really appreciate your feedback as we always aim to please! You were such a pleasure to work with and it all came together SO beautifully! There are a LOT of details to stay on top of and I hope we made the experience as smooth and easy as possible! Please reach out and let me know if we can be of any further service! Best Wishes to you and Jared, please come back and see us on your anniversary if not sooner! Sincere Warm Wishes, Lynell and entire HGI Team

  • The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn Oceanfront were absolutely wonderful! After visiting various venues in the Virginia Beach area, the Hilton Garden Inn Oceanfront was best suited for our needs. Lynell and her staff were very helpful during the planning process and great with all of our guests. Weeks after the wedding reception our guests still talk about how it was the best wedding food they EVER had! My husband and I were so happy with how everything went and had the best time.
