What better way to begin your life together than with a picture-perfect wedding at The Hilton Long Beach. Our outdoor wedding grounds and gardens are spectacular and our weather is typically perfect year round. Our newest outdoor venue, the Plaza, is an ideal wedding ceremony site, with exotic plants as the backdrop, and a sculptured waterfall, it will make a gorgeous focal point for beautiful photos of yourself, family and friends.
Yelp Review by James L. in Irvine, CA - July 2014
We just had our wedding here about a month ago and everything turned out wonderfully! We had a group of about 400 guests so it was pretty hard finding a good-looking venue that would be able to accommodate our number . The Hilton, however, met our expectation.
One thing that's definitely worth mentioning is the reception area. The hotel basically had the entire 2nd floor reserved for us. This included the banquet hall and several other smaller rooms where the groomsmen and bridesmaids used to get ready, and a huge hallway where we set up the candy bar and the photo-booth.
Also the food was delicious. If you don't know already, not all Hiltons have the same menu. The Longbeach Hilton has a great chef who created a personalized dish (including beef, chicken, shrimp and vegetable) for our wedding.
But what made the entire event so pleasant was the manager/organizer Joe D'Aprile. He patiently walked us through what we would expect for the wedding day, endured through the numerous changes we (me, my wife, and my parents) made to the contract, and punctually returned all phone calls when we had a question or concern. He even went to the lengths of arranging 3 taste testings since everyone in the family wasn't satisfied with the menu (the last of which was a week before the wedding!). I guess I can keep going on and on, but just wanted to say thanks Joe for all your help and support. You definitely alleviated a large amount of the stress that comes with wedding planning.
