"Over this past weekend, I attended a beautiful wedding at the Gillespie Conference Center in the Hilton Garden Inn. The wedding was lovely, as well as the staff. The nights events were flawless and the service was great..."

"This is an excellent place to host a wedding! It was a nice clean environment and the dinner was outstanding. Table cloths were clean and crisp and tables were beautifully set. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful and very memorable and the night consistently gotten better. it was great to see everyone having a great time, including the staff members. All of the staff was super friendly as well. I opened up a TripAdvisor account just to write a comment about the Hilton Garden Inn! Although, I would have never known about it if Bobby Y hadn't have described to me that Hilton Garden Inn is striving for #1 hotel in South Bend! Also a special thanks to him for remembering my vegetarian meal when their was a meal confusion! Another shout out to Janet to how sweet she was to the guests and how openly friendly she was, even when we were so nervous about the wedding! She was very polite and professional. I must say for my first time visiting the Hilton Garden Inn, I would greatly recommend this hotel to anyone. I will also be telling friends and family, and will be looking forward to come and stay for a future Notre Dame football game!"

“They've done it again!”
“Last Wednesday’s celebration for Hospice was a resounding success. The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn performed beautifully. The duet entrée was delicious as was the Bibb lettuce salad and the unique tri-dessert. Chef Carlos works wonders with food and, in my opinion, is the best chef of any venue in Michiana. The new sweep service was first class. I want to particularly congratulation Summer Holman for her keen attention to detail from the beginning phase of our planning through the end of Wednesday evening. It is comforting to have someone like Summer on site from start to finish. Carol did a fine job with her servers who are refreshing in their demeanor and willingness to accommodate to ensure that the evening’s meal was served warm and on schedule. So many of our guests expressed their compliments for the food and service.”

"I would truly consider and recommend this place for all.”
“I got married at this hotel a few weeks ago. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The location was wonderfully located right off the Toll Road, so I didn't have to travel much to get anywhere. It is on the pricey side but it is worth every penny.I had two rooms. A queen bed room the day before the wedding and the newlywed suite with Jacuzzi on the day of the wedding. Both rooms were excellent. I've never used a Jacuzzi before so it would have been nice to have some instructions by it but it was all good."

"Check in was easy and fast. The wedding was absolutely perfect."
"Check in was easy and fast. The wedding was absolutely perfect. The decorations were gorgeous. The reception room was transformed into the perfect oasis. Breakfast was so tasty with Belgium waffles, omelets, potatoes, made to order. Amber was great. She even warmed my syrup. Wow, the best service."

"Absolutely perfect service from start to finish!"
"We held our wedding reception at Hilton Garden Inn, and everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish! Megan Lesar, our coordinator, was incredible to work with, and she was always available to answer any questions I had. The day of the wedding went perfectly -- we received so many compliments on the food, the decor, the fast service, and the beautiful hotel room accommodations! I can actually say our wedding day was absolutely perfect from start to finish because of the staff here!”

“Perfect Place to Hold an Event, Stay & Dine”
"We came to town to host a large reception honoring our beloved family member who passed away. The moment we walked in the front door a member of housekeeping welcomed us so warmly and genuinely that we knew everything was going to be ok. From Summer and Donna in sales/catering to the front desk, restaurant, and of course, housekeeping staff, we always were treated kindly. Summer worked with our budget to help us design a thoughtful menu and a banquet room that easily flowed in the attached Gillespie Center. (It really is convenient to host an event AND stay on the same premises.) She thought of everything...even a coat check which we had forgotten. We felt so comfortable with Donna and her team that we were able to let go and focus on greeting our guests and sharing our time together, while her event staff made the magic happen. It was the perfect send-off that celebrated a great life. Our hotel rooms were ideal for all of our traveling family's and friends' needs. They gave us much needed rest in a very clean space at a reasonable price. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Both were tasty and served by engaging and helpful waitstaff. We appreciated every aspect of our stay and will always carry the memory with us."
