Reviews We Love

  • Nemo and the staff handled everything efficiently and gracefully. Everything was wonderful, and I appreciate all of your assistance with scheduling and coordinating. I love doing events here as I always know that we will have a great event.

    — Laura, May 2015
  • 3 weeks later people are still raving about how great the food and service was at our reception. Victoria and Ali were always fast to respond to any questions or concerns we had. On the day of, Nemo, the maître d, was there through the whole night. He knew everything that we wanted and the set up was perfect.

    — Lauren, November 2014
  • Everything was amazing, from the food to the venue and decor. So many of our guests told us that the cocktail hour was the best one they’ve ever gone to!!!

    — Kim, October 2014
  • Everything was awesome from the Sterling Ballroom. Everyone raved about the food and the service was fantastic. There is not one negative thing to say about the venue. We had such a wonderful experience. They made everything such a breeze and not to mention the venue is beautiful. We were apprehensive because it is a hotel, but we were blown away upon our first visit. The Sterling Ballroom comes highly recommended.

    — Tiffany, September 2014
  • Victoria was incredibly kind and patient and helped us plan the perfect surprise Bridal Shower. My sister was extremely surprised and it turned out beautifully.

    The food was incredible, the staff was extremely helpful. It went so well! I would recommend anyone to Sterling Ballroom at the DoubleTree!

    — Colleen, September 2014
  • This was the first place we visited after doing some online research, but we don’t regret it one bit! We received multiple compliments throughout the night and after the wedding day. Thank you DoubleTree!

    — Bride, August 2014
  • I particularly want to commend Ali Fernandes, Nemo, Anna, and Maria for helping to make the shower the success it was. They went above and beyond with their caring, attentive attitude to every aspect of the planning and details. You can be proud of your staff and the wonderful reflection they are of your venue – professional, knowledgeable, customer focused, with a genuine commitment to excellence. I have recommended your venue to everyone who asks.

    — Karin, July 2014
  • Our wedding was a huge success because of your help. We love you and loved that we chose the DoubleTree. Everything was perfect, including my and my family’s stay before the wedding and the complimentary bridal suite we got after the wedding. Thank you again.

    — Scott + Mona, July 2014
  • I could not have asked for a better venue and staff to work with… I already have friends who have booked their weddings at this venue, because it was the best experience I could have asked for!

    — Heather, July 2014
  • Victoria, Ali, and Nemo took such great care of us at my daughter’s bat mitzvah. The attention to detail and to me (the hostess) was outstanding! Top notch service was provided, and I will gladly recommend your facilities to anyone and everyone. A big thank you to the staff at the DoubleTree’s Sterling Ballroom!

    — Amy, June 2014
  • Our wedding reception at the Sterling Ballroom was absolutely amazing! I can’t think of enough good things to say about the staff, the food, the decor, and just the overall service! Thank you so much for making our wedding day such a memorable, fantastic day!

    — Natasha, May 2014
  • Victoria and her team went above and beyond – I would recommend this venue to ANYONE! My family members can’t stop telling me how perfect the celebration was. All of the planning & hard work made sure that the wedding day was flawless.
