My hubby and I had our wedding reception at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy on July 5th, 2014. We were MORE than pleased with how it turned out, the night could not have been any more perfect. Kim Ryan and her staff went above and beyond and we were certainly no easy crew (200+ people, an anxious bride, and out of town parents). Kim and her staff were so accommodating and helpful over our 2 1/2 year planning period. The reception was more than I could have ever imagined. The whole night moved along so smoothly and seamlessly, Nick and I were able to enjoy the whole night without any worries or stress. The food and cocktails were delicious! For the past 3 weeks since our wedding we have received so many compliments from guests about how amazing, beautiful, perfect, fun, etc. our wedding was. The Hilton Garden Inn was AMAZING and it was one of the best choices we made regarding our wedding.
Thank you, Meagan & Nick! It did seem like your day was a long time coming but it was so worth it! Everything was truly fabulous and the two of you were stunning! Thank you for your kind words - our team was honored to take care of you & your family....

Thank you "Mortisha" & hubby - it was a fantastic party - glad the weather was perfect for your ceremony and our family took fantastic care of yours ! ~ Kimberly Ryan, Catering Manager, Hilton Garden Inn, Troy NY
When I first met Kim who is the catering manager I knew this was going to be my venue for the reception of my wedding. The hotel it's self is so nice, and the staff are amazing Kim really helped me with everything and gave me great advice if I wasn't sure about something that I had envisioned for my day, and more importantly I stayed on budget. Everything from the food, to the service, to the decorations, even the actual hotel accommodations were amazing and the whole day ran smoothly as excepted. I really can't say enough great things about the Hilton Garden Inn and the staff, my husband and I are beyond happy and highly recommend to anyone and everyone interested!
Our wedding reception couldn't have been any more perfect! The food was amazing and so were the drinks. The catering coordinator Kim was so good to us and always got right back to us with anything we needed, and the staff was so friendly the night of our wedding. We stayed in a beautiful suite that night and we didn't want to leave! I would recommend this venue to anyone having a big wedding since there is a lot of space, and for what you get in the wedding package, the price is very reasonable too!! Open cocktail hour, free room, passed appetizers, BBQ menu... Guests are still commenting on how great a reception it was! We are SO happy that we chose The Hilton and Kim to take care of us on our big day.
Our families, friends and guests could not have been happier with our wedding at the Troy (NY) Hilton Garden Inn. From our initial meeting with Kim Ryan to our check-out from our spacious suite Sunday morning, it was a positive stress-free experience. Kim's leadership, honest advice, experience and enthusiasm combined with a newer facility and very professional staff resulted in a GREAT wedding day. Communication by e-mail and phone was consistently clear and quick. Overall price is very competitive. We arranged several vendors, Kim provided others. She coordinated all of them seamlessly. The Troy Hilton is clean inside and outdoors-something we always look at when we travel. Our out of town guests liked the hotel's location,their rooms and amenities. We ate great food from the catering, Great American Grill and Recovery Room kitchens throughout the weekend. Our wedding guests marveled at the civil ceremony Kim coordinated as well as the quality of the creative Backyard BBQ reception menu. Many said, "it was the best wedding I've been to." The hotel and banquet staff was more than happy to help us and our guests with everything we needed the day of our wedding. Overall our expectations were exceeded. We cannot thank everyone at the Hilton Garden Inn enough for helping make a our big day a special one that we will always remember.
I had my wedding on October 29th, 2011 at the Hilton Garden Inn. Despite the unexpected snow storm the night was amazing! The help I received from the Hilton started way before the wedding even took place. Kim helped me find vendors as well as answering all emails and phone calls promptly. She even helped with transportation when my parents missed their flight the night before the rehearsal. Every little detail was taken care of. Kim Ryan and everyone involved were beyond professional. The storm threw me for a loop but Kim had everything ready to go in an alternate location. The ceremony was beautiful and classy! The reception was well above my expectations. The staff did a great job at making sure every little detail was taken care of. Everyone at the reception complemented on how great the food was. I received so many compliments from people telling me that this was one of the best weddings they had been to. Kim and staff made the night smooth and without error. From the event staff to the support staff at the hotel we had a great experience at the Hilton!
My son and his new bride held their wedding and reception at the Hilton Garden Inn l0/29/ll and I can't say enough good things about the whole event. Our event planner, Kim Ryan, was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was on top of everything that day and made sure everything went smoothly. We had even hoped to have the vows outside in the beautiful garden area but luckily decided to hold them inside and it was a good thing we did. That was the day of the freak snow storm!
The room inside was just as beautiful and the room, which I am going to call the library room, where the reception was held was absolutely beautiful. I knew we were using a black and white them with red accents but to see it all come together with flowers and candles was breathtaking. I hope my new daughter-in-law writes a review to name the florist, photographer and d.j. she booked because they were absolutely great, too. The Hilton holds a bridal party for couples using their venue to meet their vendors. You won't be disappointed.
The bridal suite is also beautiful and huge. Plenty of room for the bridal party to do their hair and makeup and get ready. Oh, and the food was delicious. So many of our guests are still telling me what a great time they had and that they were so impressed with everything the Hilton offered. Thank you again, Kim and everyone else involved. You made the wedding absolutely beautiful!
We used this location b/c we are from Troy, however our reception was out in Clifton Park. Everyone thought the rooms were clean and nice. Only downside they only have one van shuttle so we had to find alternate transportation for hotel guests.
Our wedding was amaaazing, and it was all thanks to the awesome staff at The Hilton Garden Inn! From the very beginning of the planning stages, I knew that Jen, Kim and the entire staff were going to exceed our expectations. Every little detail was covered, and I never left a meeting or conversation with any worries or doubts in my mind. Every email was responded to in a timely, thorough manner. Every point of contact we had with the hotel was a positive, pleasant experience. Even guests calling in to reserve rooms told us how friendly the front desk staff was to work with. Which by the way, the hotel rooms here are beautiful. The Presidential Suite for the Bride and Groom is just awesome! Huge and plenty of room to have the girls get ready the day of, or have the guys hang out and party. The day of the wedding I wasn't stressed at all, I knew Kim had my back and had everything covered! The ballroom is spacious, beautiful, and classy. The cocktail hour in the foyer was perfect, and the bridal party had a private one in the library area downstairs- which is great because it opens up to the lawn area which was perfect for pictures! We got to take pictures and enjoy cocktail hour- the best of both worlds! The reception was truly a memorable occasion and everything was perfect. The things people remember the most and have the best time at weddings is when there is good food, good music, and open bar. The Hilton delivers on the delicious food and drink options, so make sure you get a good DJ who gets your guests on the dance floor. Also, we had our Rehearsal Dinner at the Recovery Sports Grill located in the Hotel- it was an awesome pre-party to the wedding. If you are looking for a more casual option where a lot of people can gather and mingle and hang out- this is the place! Oh and they even offered to stay open later on the night of the wedding- it was a great after party spot! Such an awesome experience for your guests to be able to stay over and have everything in one place. Sunday morning everyone trickled in for a delicious breakfast downstairs at the Great American Grill off the lobby. I can’t say enough positive things about the Hilton and our wedding weekend. It really was perfect and I am so happy to have had the pleasure of working with Kim and the entire team. The Hilton truly made wedding planning easy and fun- which is how it should be!
Our original contract included everything we wanted for a simple elegant reception at an affordable price. We were so impressed when we booked this venue 15 months prior to our wedding date. Unfortunately, when it was time to agree upon the final details we had to work with a new sales manager who was rather unprofessional. She often would not return my calls, she forget important details or confused my wedding with another wedding, and during the reception she was difficult to find. The facility is beautiful and the wait staff were amazing. We just would have liked a different sales/event coordinator. Be honest with management if you are unhappy because this is a new facility with a lot of new staff.
