We had such a good time at our reception! Mary Ann and Pete took care of everything so that we could just relax and enjoy ourselves. Our guests had such wonderful things say and enjoyed themselves thoroughly. I highly recommend this location!
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the DoubleTree Meadowlands on April 6, 2013. Choosing a venue was really stressful for me but I was won over early with delicious food and Caitlin, who assured me my day would be amazing. It definitely was! We opted for the Grande Occasions buffet and everyone told me the food was delicious! The bakery they work with - Krency's - made the most amazing cupcakes! Malone's flower shop (another vendor of theirs) also was easy to work with and made beautiful centerpieces. Basically, when you have your wedding at the DT Meadowlands, so much is taken care of/included in the price that you really can't beat it!
I also appreciated the flexibility in choosing the ceremony space. We originally booked the outdoor gazebo, but as our wedding was in April and there aren't any stones/paths leading towards the gazebo, I was afraid of mud. We moved things into the Fireside Room and it worked out perfectly!
Caitlin was really attentive the day of as well. She made sure all the little touches I had personally created were on display and our sweets table looked excellent!
My only minor issues were: sometimes there was a delay in getting a response I needed; I definitely did not have a SUITE like I was supposed to have to get ready/the night of the wedding (I had a king room); and there was some confusion with guests booking rooms and being told the block was full and there weren't any more rooms in the hotel when there were.
All in all it was a beautiful day and if I had to do it again I definitely would!
I had our outside wedding in the Gazebo at the Doubletree and I can't get over how beautiful it, how stress free and fabulous it was! Mary Ann and Pete took care of every detail and I felt like I had another set of parents sending me down the aisle. They did everything exactly how I wanted it, the food couldn't be beat and the price REASONABLE! I can't say enough good things about this locate - USE THEM!
Our event coordinator (her name is Danielle-avoid her!) did not follow our event sheet which meant the uplighting we paid for was NOT present at our reception. She did not check on us once during the duration of our reception. My husband and brother-in-law both had to track her down to correct the many errors the wait staff had during our dinner. As if things couldn't get much worse, she even had my name incorrect on the sign leading into our reception room (she gave me a completely WRONG last name!). My husband and I received excuse after excuse as to why our event sheet was not followed (the old lie of "miscommunication"). I could go on and on about the eight things that they did not do properly--trust me, I remember each one as I had to fight with them while on our honeymoon! Their "miscommunication" cost them over $600 as we fought to be reimbursed for their incompetence. They will lure you in with their package deal--stay away!
I had a great wedding reception at the Doubletree Meadowlands. Mary Ann was VERRRYY hard to get a hold of most of the time. She would forget to send you things and rarely call you back. Some things offered we ended up not getting on our wedding night (like a bridal suite). We had a room next to my new in-laws...which was awkward.
We arranged our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception at the Doubletree Meadowlands Pittsburgh. The food was fabulous, Caitlin was extremely helpful & always focused on the positive, and we felt pampered. We had issues with the hotel reservation system - several folks told us they could not get reservations even though we were supposed to have rooms blocked. Caitlin did her best to fix everything we were made aware of, but we ended up with people in a lot of different hotels. As a first time wedding parent, we had high hopes for the number of guests -- I would advise thinking (and contracting for) a lower number, and raising it if needed. We ended up adding a lot of extras, despite trying my best ahead of time to avoid that problem. :( I felt wasteful, but we received a lot of compliments on how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was. It really was delightful having Caitlin to provide directions and take care of so many details -- I didn't have to think, and that was the nicest benefit of all. (That didn't occur to me ahead of time, so it surprised me how pleasant it was to just follow instructions - where to be at what time, where to stand, etc.) I was able to relax and soak up the moment and enjoy every minute.
PERFECT! All I need is one word to sum up my wedding. Every minute of my ceremony to my reception was handled with perfection. We could not have asked for a more beautiful/perfect venue. Every details was covered without us having to ask. Every worry was quickly put to ease by the professionalism of Mary Ann and Pete. The minute we signed the contract to have our event at The DoubleTree, we knew everything would be wonderful. David Tutera has nothing on The DoubleTree. :) They truly put alot of blood, sweat and tears into the work they do in setting up your event. I still have the vision of the room etched into my head upon being the first person to see it that day. I was speechless. Every fine details from the beautiful set up of the cookie table to the placement of the linens on the table was covered. I truly felt like Cinderalla on my wedding day and selecting the perfect place to have our event only made it better. Mary Ann and Pete are wonderful people and I will forever be endebted to the both of them for being there on August 11, 2012. If you want to have a night to remember, select The DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh Meadowlands and leave everything to Mary Ann. You will not be disappointed!!!
We just had our wedding at the Double Tree by Hilton Meadowlands, PA. The reception was great, and the staff was very nice. With that said, dealing with the Double Tree for the preperation leading up to the big day was less than desirable. In the end we were left accepting unfulfilled expectations set by Double Tree with incorrect invoices, inadequate customer service, dealing with issues that we never should have had to deal with, and an overall uneasy feeling throughout the course of planning our wedding reception.
A letter was written to the general manager of the hotel and submitted to the cooperation, and I really hope measures are taken so that future couples do not have to experience what we had to endure.
