We had our wedding at the Pearl River Hilton in Sept '17! It was the best decision we made. Gerry and her staff were incredible from the beginning! Our guests are still talking about how amazing the venue was! You can not go wrong booking this venue.
The Hilton was an AMAZING venue. All of the staff was so nice and easy to work with. The convenience of not having to shuttle people between a hotel and a venue is THE best thing. Marisa Capasso was fantastic to work with from the start. I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone!!
Just co-hosted our third son's wedding so we are not newbies - and the Pearl River Hilton is a standout. Gerry was incredible through a year and a half of pinning down details, answering every question patiently and thoroughly and providing guidance all the way through. Derrick and Gerry were on point all night and the hotel staff worked seamlessly with our kosher caterer and in turn with our band so the evening flowed flawlessly. It's really helpful to have so many different rooms to use and re-purposed throughout the evening (Normandy for hair and makeup, complete with mirrors and makeup chairs) and later for the afterparty; the Conservatory for cocktails and the next day, brunch; the garden room for the bride's welcome, etc.) which gave a feeling of spaciousness and ease. The entire staff was unbelievably attentive and accommodating, pleasant, friendly, and helpful. I can't say enough great things about the Pearl River Hilton. Just do it!
The Hilton Pearl River is incredibly accommodating and the service is fantastic! They are wedding experts, and you can trust them! Also, they are very knowledgeable for Jewish/kosher weddings!
I got married last Saturday at the Hilton Pearl River and its taken me a week to think about how I can even begin to describe my INCREDIBLE experience. I started the journey with walking in for a tour with Marissa, who is now my FRIEND and one of the sweetest people ever. She answered any question or concern I had so fast and with so much attention to detail. Over a year of planning and I felt so confident that every detail of our wedding day would go on without a hitch. Well I was right!! My wedding weekend came, and every single thing was perfection. The front desk accommodating all of my guests, the rehearsal, the morning of the wedding and the ceremony and reception were more than i could have ever asked for. Marissa was with me the entire planning process and the day before the wedding I met Derek, who was the maitre d and was so on top of everything and also just as amazing as Marissa, which i didn't even think was possible. Those two kept us organized and calm the entire day, its almost like they knew what we needed before we even had to ask. Take it from someone who weighed all of the pros and cons to wedding venues, I could not find one con. You are under one roof for EVERYTHING, it truly makes a difference and makes the most time out of your day. I wish I could relive my wedding day at the Hilton Peal River everyday and I am so sad its over. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who helped us......oh did i mention the food was amazing? THAT TOO!
We threw our wedding at the Pearl River Hilton in Sept '17! It was the best decision we made. Gerry and her staff were incredible from the beginning - from the big moments (accommodations, menu, timing, flexibility) to all the small details (getting ready rooms, espresso shots, daily emails). There's so many things you have to think about when planning a wedding, and the Pearl River Hilton staff just make it so much easier. I couldn't recommend the venue and the team that comes with it more!
We had our wedding at the Hilton in Pearl River on 9/15/17 and had an absolutely amazing night! Everything was set up perfectly! We worked with Abbey Rochford during our engagement and she was just wonderful - she was super responsive to emails, and often stayed late to meet with us after work! She consistently answered our questions right away and let us know what we needed to do each step of the way. The week of the wedding she took our seating chart, menus, pictures we wanted to use as decorations, and items for our after party. She and her team set everything up on the day of and I didn't have to worry about a thing. Abbey is a true pro and I'm so thankful we had her to work with! We also worked with Derek and his team on the night of the wedding, and they made sure that everything went perfectly! They even fixed my dress after I (almost immediately) ripped the bustle off! Derek worked with our DJ to make sure everything happened on time, and made sure we had everything we needed the entire night. The entire staff there is so nice and accommodating - there's nothing more we could have asked for! The rooms were great, the hotel block was easy, the cocktail hour was fantastic, and the room we were given to get ready in was exactly what we needed! We are still getting calls and texts from our guests telling us that it was the best wedding they've ever been to and that the food was excellent! I highly, highly recommend the Hilton!
Words can not express how amazing the staff at the Hilton Pearl River was. Marisa was so kind and helpful from the moment we went to see the venue to the moment our wedding weekend was over. She answered every questions and concern we had and was friendly and easy to work with. On the day of the wedding Derrick and June made sure everything was perfect and went along without a hitch. The Hilton made me feel like a true princess from the moment we got ready to the moment we went to bed. It was an amazing day and many of our guests raved about the food and said it was a top notch wedding. If we could do it all over again there isn't a doubt in my mind we go back to the Hilton Pearl River. It was truly magical.
We just had our wedding at the Hilton Pearl River this past weekend and could not have asked for a better experience. We worked with Gerry for the year leading up to the wedding and she was amazing. She was responsive to our and our family's many questions and requests and made us feel like everything was going to be taken care of and that there was nothing to worry about. She and her team pulled off an amazing weekend, starting from the rehearsal the day before, to the brunch the morning after. The food was incredible (and there was so much!) and the venue itself was gorgeous. Derek was our maitre d' and he and his team were amazing. They kept the flow of the wedding running perfectly and we felt completely stress-free the whole night. He even was able to bustle my complicated dress! We highly recommend the Pearl River Hilton.
If I could give more stars I would. Everything was absolutely flawless from day one of booking our wedding at the PR Hilton. Gerry, Derek and the rest of the staff are amazing and so accommodating to every single question, concern and need you may have throughout the entire process. I can't say enough good things about how they helped to make our day perfect. Thank you! Liz and Kevin
My husband and I held our wedding at the Hilton Pearl River in June, and we are so thrilled with our decision! Gerry and Derek made sure our day went smoothly, I didn't have a worry at all. We also had a dinner the night before and a breakfast the morning after that Lori arranged, which was perfect for our family. From the beautiful grounds, to the numerous room options for ceremony & cocktail hour, to the amazing food, you can't go wrong here. We were supposed to have our ceremony outside, but it simply was too hot outside and luckily we had a plan B that we put into action on the morning of the wedding. It was so beautiful and went off without a hitch. Gerry and Derek will make sure you have the day you always dreamed of. I promise you will not be disappointed!
If I could give the Hilton 100 stars I would! Our wedding was the most incredible day thanks to the staff at the Hilton! Marisa made our experience absolutely wonderful. We did not have to worry about a thing from beginning of planning to the end of the wedding night! Derek was incredible! He was so attentive and made sure everything ran as smooth as possible! The breakfast the morning after the wedding was amazing as well! Everyone raved about the food and drinks. We can't wait to plan another event with the Pearl River Hilton!
Excellent venue. Just held my daughter's wedding there. Everything ran so smoothly. The staff couldn't have been nicer and they were there for our every need. From beginning to end everyone made us feel special. Gerry, Derrek, Linda and the entire staff were so professional and attentive. Food was excellent. Our wedding was everything we wanted and more. Thank you Pearl River.
We could not be happier that we chose to have our wedding at the Pearl River Hilton! They made the wedding planning process stress free and worked with us to make the day a fairy tale come true! The staff was very helpful and attentive! A special thanks to Gerry Burns, Kathy Feeney, Catherine Feeney, and Derek Rubino, who played an integral part of our process and special day! We heard great reviews from our guests, we had 310 people and no one had to wait on line for a drink, and everybody loved the food! Our cocktail hour was in the conservatory, which blew everyone away! We can not thank you enough for making our wedding truly a day we could only dream of!
We are so thrilled with our decision to have our wedding at the Hilton Pearl River! We had looked at over 20+ venues for a South Asian multi-day wedding. The Hilton Pearl River was the last on our list and from the moment we pulled into the parking lot for our appointment, we knew it was the one (as cliche as it sounds). The venue itself is beautiful from its chateau like architecture to the sprawling lawn but the hospitality of the team is what really made it special. The entire planning process was so smooth thanks to Marisa and her team. She was so easy to work with and was so professional not only with us but with all of our vendors. She and Derek ensured our day was absolutely perfect, coordinating with 10+ vendors and helping our entire bridal party/guests feel welcome and comfortable throughout the day. We highly recommend the Hilton Pearl River and wish we could do it all over again ourselves! Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend amazing!
Our New Years Eve Wedding at the Hilton Pearl River was exceptional. From the first time meeting Abbey and Gerri to all the little details in the planning, everything went smoothly. Words cannot express how thankful we are for having a seamless and well-organized event. Our guests continue to rave about the excellent food, friendly waitstaff/bartenders, and accommodations. Wish we could go back and relive the night. Amazing! Thank you again!!!
Where do we even begin? Having our wedding at the Pearl River Hilton was the absolute best decision we ever made. Our wedding weekend was so magical from the moment we walked in and chose the venue, till the day we checked out as a married couple. The venue itself is beautiful. It is such a well kept, clean hotel. Each room has its own unique charm and beauty. We even did our rehearsal dinner at the hotel restaurant, Two Henry’s. The food was amazing and they created an area in the restaurant to accommodate our rehearsal dinner guests. Lori, the manager at Two Henry’s, is awesome and made sure that we had our own special area secluded for us! As far as the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception went, Gerry and her team went beyond the call of duty to make every single detail magnificent. The cocktail hour was superb. The food was awesome and people continue to talk about our cocktail hour. My husband and I even got to eat the food during cocktail hour because they made sure we tried everything!! The reception was perfect. The staff was extremely attentive and made sure we had everything we wanted. Linda and Jackie were amazing. We received first class treatment throughout the entire weekend. The wait staff noticed during the reception that my husband lost his voice and next thing we know he has a cup of hot tea and honey at our table. At the end of the night when we returned to our suite, they had a floral heart arrangement, a tray of desserts, wedding cake and my husband’s favorite beverage! The staff at this hotel is extremely professional. Every time we had a question, we received an email response immediately. Every time we needed to make a change, they accommodated us. No matter what it was, they did everything they could to make our dream come true! They paid attention to every single detail that was important to us. Anyone would be lucky to work with a team like this one. Thank you for making our weekend spectacular! We appreciate everything you did and we couldn’t possibly be any happier. Everything was perfect, and honestly not one single thing went wrong. If you are thinking about choosing this venue, we promise you will not be disappointed.
Hilton Pearl River was the most accommodating and absolutely stunning place to have our wedding. The castle like building is so beautiful inside and out and everything is so clean. We primarily worked with Gerry and Jacqueline when it came to planning our special day but throughout our experience we met so many wonderful people who work at the Hilton Pearl River. Leading up to the big day Gerry and Jacqueline made themselves available whether it was for in person meetings or via email. We felt so comfortable knowing that they were in our corner and were there to help make the day run more smoothly. In fact they made a suggestion to us about the flow of our day, we trusted them and went with their suggestion. They could not have been more correct! All of the employees of Hilton Pearl River are so good at what they do, we have zero complaints and all thanks and praise. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was sophisticated, elegant, and quiet. We actually got married in the Conservatory Room and it was just so beautiful. If we would plan our wedding over again there's no doubt in our minds that the Hilton Pearl River would be our choice! Our guests loved their hotel rooms and the breakfast the next morning was delicious! If you are planning a wedding, get on the phone today, call Gerry and book your date ASAP! Marissa and Kevin
We loved the Hilton, and more importantly, our guests loved it! We'd been joking about making our wedding as "user-friendly" as possible, and the Hilton greatly contributed to that. For starters, it was ridiculously convenient to have all of the weekend's events at one location, which meant that folks could decamp to their rooms whenever needed and transportation was not required. (No limo or buses to deal with!) The event rooms and grounds are lovely and well-kept and the amenities are top-notch. The staff is the key to their success. Every staff member was warm and accommodating and helped us feel very relaxed throughout the entire weekend. They are true professionals who bring many years of hospitality experience to the table and one has the feeling that they could handle anything. The catering/events team provided terrific guidance and were there every step of the way. (Sometimes literally--they must not sleep on weekends!) Lastly, the food was delicious and loved by all. Relatives have been talking about it for weeks. The Hilton provides A LOT in the standard wedding package and they were very accommodating of guests' dietary needs. The bar options were also very impressive and the specialty cocktails were a fun touch. In summary, we wish we could get married here every year, because it was a heck of a party!
I have nothing but great things to say about my experience at the Hilton Pearl River. I could not have asked for a better venue, location, or Hilton staff members to work with. On the first day we went to tour the venue we met Gerry. From the beginning, she was warm, friendly and willing to work with us. Our Saturday wedding was fairly large (240 people) and we were hosting a traditional engagement ceremony the day prior. The Hilton had never put on a engagement ceremony like this but were eager to work with us and accommodate our needs. Our wedding day turned out perfect. Gerry and Derek worked with us through all of the details weeks prior. They were also great for giving advice on how the day should be run, etc. Our wedding guests are still talking about how great the wedding was and how delicious the food was. The cocktail hour food was delicious and had everything from rack of lamb, raw seafood far, several stations and passed food. Dinner was a four course meal and the guests had the a choice of 3 entrees, not including gluten free and vegan (which is almost impossible to find anywhere else). Following the ceremony, my husband and I were taken to a room where they had a candle light dinner and sampling of almost all of the cocktail hour food to make sure we ate and enjoyed our food. Overall, Gerry, Derek and the rest of the Hilton staff really went out of their way to make our wedding weekend special. Since many of our guests stayed in the hotel for one or 2 nights, the Hilton was able to assist us in planning light breakfasts and a mini after party following the wedding. My husband and I are truly lucky that we found this venue and were able to work with great people. We worked so closely with Gerry and Derek during the course of wedding planning that they felt like part of the family!
The Hilton Pearl River is an amazing place to get married. Gerry is so nice and wonderful. Everything for our wedding was perfect. It was truly a dream come true and the best day ever. All of the staff is so nice and attentive. We had our ceremony outside which was beautiful. Everything was beautiful. We couldn't be happier. I highly recommend having your wedding there. We can't stop smiling.
BLISS IS A PERFECT “DESTINATION” WEDDING RIGHT NEXT DOOR!! Our daughter had the perfect “destination” wedding (including rehearsal dinner and day- after- wedding brunch) at a European style “palace” one-half hour from NYC: the Pearl River Hilton. Weddings are their specialty. The facilities, both indoors and out, are wonderful and create a magical ambience. The food was fabulous and the service exemplary. The bridal suite (included) hosts your entire wedding party in unparalleled comfort. Every detail is considered by the expert staff (no party planner necessary) including dressing rooms, make-up rooms, and private room for pre-party traditions such as Ketubah signing. All of the above, and great value. The prices were very reasonable for the area and they delivered on all their promises and then some. Their florist recommendation was spot on. It was truly Wedding Bliss for the couple, the hosts and the guests.
My husband and I were held our wedding reception at the Hilton Pearl River on July 31st, 2016. There aren’t enough words to describe how grateful we are and how helpful and kind everyone at the Hilton was from the very beginning. Our dream wedding really came to life because of the diligence and dedication of the Hilton staff, most especially Nancy, Marisa, Derek, and Abbey (thank you all so much!). We had an enormous wedding (over 300 people) but the Hilton staff made everything flow seamlessly. From the earliest stages of planning, Marisa and the Hilton staff were very responsive to our communications and accommodated all of our needs and requests (which were many!). Marisa always made us feel at peace and confident that all was taken care of. We met Derek and Abbey only a few weeks before our wedding, but they immediately gave off the same vibe and were just as helpful and supportive. Everything about our wedding at the Hilton went off as perfectly as one could hope for. The rooms were amazing and the guests were all very comfortable; we have been told by many guests that the food at both the cocktail hour and dinner was the best they’ve had at a wedding (and we agree); the inclement weather on our wedding day was not even remotely a factor; and the reception itself was absolutely beautiful. We can’t recommend the Hilton highly enough. Honestly, our review doesn’t come close to describing how happy they made us on our wedding day. If you’re looking for a place to hold your wedding, you should seriously consider checking them out!
I had my wedding at the Pearl River Hilton this past July and it was beyond what I could have wished for. It was absolutely perfect. Gerry & Derek ran the show and they did an incredible job. They do hundreds upon hundreds of weddings but they always had a way of making me feel so special! I had my ceremony, cocktail hour & reception all at the Hilton and everything ran smoothly. The grounds and the rooms are stunning and very well maintained! maintained.recommerecommend
Our daughter's wedding was July 9, 2016. It was absolutely amazing !!! Gerry Burns, Derrick and Jackie and their staff are second to none. An absolute pleasure to work with. We have had nothing but compliments on this wedding!! The hotel is beautiful. The food was delicious. There is no need to look any further. All in one accommodations from the ceremony , cocktail hour and reception. We also had breakfast in the garden room the next day.
