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 accessible to eateries, shopping, and the freeway. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and location for any and all occasions.

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.

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, clean, and the king size bed was very comfortable! We were so impressed by how the Hilton and it's staff made such a huge positive impact on a day that we will never forget!! My partner and I are very glad we made the decision to trust the staff at the Hilton and would highly recommend it for a venue or just a night out of town! Thank you guys for all you did for us!

Aww!!!! Thank you so much Ashley!!! You and Britt were an absolute JOY to work with!! Everything turned out beautiful, from those gorgeous red roses, to the Lego details! I’m so happy you chose to spend your special day with the Hilton family and we met your expectations! Take care and Congratulations again! PS: I hope you enjoyed Hawaii!  Your Wedding Specialist, Rayna S.

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!
Hilton Charlotte University Place responded with the following comments:
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

Emily Bowers was my husband and I Wedding Specialist and was simply FABULOUS!!!! Initially, we were leaning towards an uptown venue but happened to find out about Hilton Charlotte University/Lakeview Patio venue. Our SPECIAL day was everything and MORE. Emily was always available and very professional. She has a great sense of humor and what I like most is she was never pushy. If you're looking for a beautiful venue, great food, nice luxury hotel accomodations then the Hilton is your venue. I promise you will be glad that you made the choice. Emily, thanks again for providing such EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE:):):):) #toshaanddoug92714

Wow, Tosha, I can't thank you enough for the kind words! YOU were a joy to work with! You always kept me laughing :) I'm so glad you all decided to spend your special day with us. I am so thrilled for you and Doug and wish you all the happiness in the world! --Emily Bowers

We changed our wedding venue to the Hilton, right on the water, just 3 days before the wedding. Their wedding planner worked with us extensively to ensure this venue could work for us. They were great hosts for our wedding. If you haven't been there you should just go and look, the outdoor wedding venue is beautiful. In addition to that their wooden structure on the deck is built to handle just about anything you can imagine, including lanterns, curtains or ribbons. They were also accommodating with chairs and a table for us to use. They made the experience painless and I believe because of their efforts our wedding was significantly better than it would have been at our previous venue.

We are so glad we were able to accommodate you all for your special day! It was our pleasure having you all with us. Thank you for the kind words :) --Emily Bowers

Ms. Emily Bowers was my wedding coordinator, or shall I say angel. She was always willing to answer the thousands of questions I had and she worked well with all of my outside vendors, to ensure my day went of without a hitch. Even though I am well aware that she does 100's of wedding a year, she made sure that when it was our turn it was all about us. Not to mention the wonderful staff they were very courteous, one ex. of this was: one of the wait staff noticed that I was to nervous to eat my food so he wrapped it up for me. The Hilton made our day exactly what it was supposed to be....unforgettable.
Hilton Charlotte University Place responded with the following comments:
Decora, it goes without saying that you were a joy to work with. Your sweet spirit and positive attitude were always so great to be around! I am so thrilled for you both and know you will have a long lasting, love filled marriage! Keep in touch! --Emily Bowers

We had a renewal reception at the Hilton. Emily Bowers was the best. She handled everything. The room was great, the food was excellent and the service was awesome. We are planning another party in Jan 16. Emily took care of us again. You could ask for a better wedding planner, her attention to detail was excellent.
