    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 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 they were in our corner and there to help make the day run smoothly. In fact their suggestions about improving the flow of our day could not have been more correct! All the employees of Hilton Pearl River are so good at what they do, we offer them all thanks and praise. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was sophisticated, elegant, and quiet. We got married in the Conservatory Room and it was just so beautiful. 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

    "Truly Amazing: "The Dream Team"

    I call them the "Dream Team." Gerry Burns, Abbey, Derek Rubino, June, Jacqueline Rochford, and their team went above and beyond to accommodate all our wishes for our daughter's wedding. I had total confidence in the dream team. So much so, that I was able to relax and be totally calm for this special occasion. Thank you Gerry, you are truly amazing!

    As Perfect As One Could Hope For!

    My husband and I 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 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!

    So Professional and Sophisticated. Flawless!

    WOW. Where do I start? I am no stranger to events. I have worked with a lot of vendors in many states and I have never had such a positive, amazing, professional, sophisticated, elegant experience. Even up to the week before the wedding I kept thinking, "Something is going to go wrong with the Hilton. They can't possibly be this flawless." There is not ONE thing I would change or improve. The Hilton staff is PERFECT. From your customer service, responsiveness, ideas, and flexibility to your aesthetically beautiful venue and professional staff -- I don't know how you do it!! I had guests tell me it was the best wedding food they have ever had. One guest said it was the best steak she EVER had!! Each one of the team members executes their job flawlessly and in turn, the guests and Bride and Groom can relax and enjoy an elegant affair. Gerry is a gem! Her responsiveness, suggestions, ideas -- EVERYTHING. She is an absolute joy to work with. I wish I could take her to every venue I work with. Derek and Jackie -- PERFECTION. Who knew Derek could bustle a dress like a boss!!?? They put me so at ease. I couldn't have imagined a better reception. FLAWLESS. Thank you for dealing with all my changes and emails and questions You never once lost your cool even when I was being witchy. so professional and sophisticated. BRAVO!

    An Exceptional Venue!

    The Hilton Pearl River is an exceptional venue! We had the most incredible wedding weekend. From the moment we stepped foot into The Hilton Pearl River we knew it was the perfect place to celebrate our wedding. Gerry, Jackie, and the rest of the staff were absolutely a pleasure to work with. You not only get Excellent Food, Drinks, and a beautiful venue, you also get Smiling Faces who treat you like family. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful venue with excellent service and accommodations.

    Unbelievable Attention to Every Detail

    Fabulous experience at the Hilton Pearl River. Elegant with Excellent Service - Exemplary in every Way!!! Gerry Burns is the most fabulous person to work with!! Unbelievable attention was given to every detail with a caring and helpful staff who insures that everything is exactly as requested. Having made two beautiful weddings previously for my other children at other venues, I can honestly say that this was exceptional!! The professionalism, efficiency, warmth, and flexibility surpassed all my expectations. Nothing was too hard or too challenging. The staff was unbelievably responsive and truly wanted to insure that we were happy with the event. It made all the difference!!

    The Food was Amazing and Abundant

    My husband and I just had our wedding at the Hilton Pearl River on Friday, December 11, 2015. Our first visit to the Hilton sealed the deal for us. I was a little skeptical of a hotel wedding and expected to be underwhelmed, but we went based on such positive reviews. When we first walked into the conservatory, possibly one of the most beautiful spaces we have seen in any wedding venue, we automatically knew that we needed to get married here. We met with Gerry Burns who is incredibly sweet, funny, and professional. She was always available and I am positive our wedding would not have been as incredible had it not been for her help. Aside from Gerry, Derek Rubino and Jacqueline Rochford met with us twice before the wedding to go over a schedule for the day, review final details, and coordinate their schedules with those of our vendors. On our wedding day, Gerry, Derek, and Jacqueline's hard work was very evident. We just had to get dressed and show up for our ceremony since every detail had been worked out. We truly enjoyed our wedding and it is really all thanks to the efforts of everyone at the Hilton. As if the people and the beautiful spaces at the Hilton were not enough, the food was amazing and abundant. Our guests have been raving about the food (a few guests told us that their entrees were the best wedding food they have ever eaten) and the cocktail hour impressed even the most critical members of our two large Italian families. We had so much choice in our menu and we got to work with the chef to create combinations to suit our taste. The food, the people, and the hotel itself all made our wedding so much better than we could have imagined. As a gay couple, we went into wedding planning with some hesitation, but everyone at the Hilton Pearl River treated our wedding like it was their own and never made it feel any less special because there wasn't a bride. P.S. If you get married here, can you invite us? We'd love to experience it all again!

    Beautiful Ballroom, Incredible Wedding

    5 5 1
    We held our wedding here in October 2015 with 200 people. We cannot say enough about how incredible our wedding process (and actual wedding) was at the Hilton Pearl River. From our first visit to the property, we were in love with the building, the grounds, the hospitality and the people at the Pearl River Hilton. Gerry Burns, Derek Rubino, Jacqueline Rochford, and their team went above and beyond to accommodate all our wishes for the wedding. The building is gorgeous, especially the lawn where we had our ceremony. The ballroom is beautiful and spacious, and the room where we had our cocktail hour (painted ceiling) is beautiful. It looks like a French Chateau from the outside and really photographs well. It does NOT look like a typical Hilton. There are two great spots for a first look: the lawn or the water fountain out front. The food was absolutely delicious and we received endless compliments on how great the food was (and how much there was - we wanted a big cocktail hour spread). We made it a point to eat at the wedding because the food was just so good. Gerry helped us find ways to save on costs by getting creative with our menu, which was a huge help. The wedding cake from A Little Cake (included when you book with Pearl River) was hands down the best we have ever had. Our snobby foodie friends asked for second and thirds! Throughout the entire process, we never once felt pressured or felt that there was an "up-sell." Everything was included in the price, which turned out to be a really good value. Gerry and her team were so great that they actually moved our entire ceremony from indoors to outdoors just two hours before starting time -- just because we asked them to! They had a crew of people mobilize to make this happen, which was incredibly accommodating. Derek Rubino is such a great day-of coordinator. He took care of everything. He even bustled my dress right before the reception because my sister did it wrong! They were cool, calm, and collected at all times, which was REALLY important as a bride on the day of the wedding. All our vendors had worked at the Pearl River Hilton before and only had great things to say. Everyone loves Gerry and her team, everyone! If you have your wedding at the Pearl River Hilton you will have an incredible experience from beginning to end. We are forever grateful for the amazing experience we had!

    Everything was Perfect

    Your search ends here!! This venue is everything you have dreamed of and more!! My husband and I recently had our reception of 200+ guests here at the Hilton Pearl River. We also had our rehearsal dinner here, and our brunch the morning after. I cannot thank the staff enough for making it an unforgettable experience. Everything was perfect. Gerry Burns and Derek Rubino are experts when it comes to event planning. They did everything we asked of them and more. We booked our venue very early (2 years in advance) and for those 2 years Gerry was in constant contact with us whether it was to answer our questions or just to check in with us to see how our plans were coming along. She was so comforting and friendly, truly a breath of fresh air during the fun yet stressful time of wedding planning. My mom and I will honestly miss talking to her every week. In the last month we had constant contact with Derek for scheduling the big day. Between him and the bridal attendants everything went seamlessly. At one point he was carrying my shoes as he helped me carry my train to our own private cocktail hour that just me and my husband shared. Anything, and I mean anything, that we asked was done and taken care of. I put my complete trust in both Gerry and Derek and they exceeded my expectations. From the food, the ballroom, the hotel rooms, the bar, brunch, and just the very atmosphere of the Hilton, we still have guests raving. Especially about cocktail hour! The hotel rooms are beautiful and so is the Bridal suite. My husband and I both got ready the morning of the wedding at the Hilton. We were separately provided food and beautiful rooms to host our bridal party and families during hair/makeup and picture time. Marissa, Gerrys assistant, was extremely helpful to us during this time, even offering to run to CVS to purchase nail polish remover (because who thinks of taking that with them?!). Because of her help, we did not need to lift a finger and were able to stay calm and relaxed. If we could do it all over again, we would not change a thing! The staff at the Hilton really made our wedding amazing and stress free! We are forever grateful for all of them and are so happy to have shared our special time with exceptional people. Thank you to everyone at the Hilton who made October 9th 2015 the best day ever!!

    Absolutely Flawless

    My husband and I had an amazing experience with the Hilton Pearl River. They are EXPERTS and really know what they are doing. The venue itself is beautiful and lovely, and the staff is very knowledgeable and on top of everything. From the very first day when we signed our contract, they were helpful and detail oriented, and made sure we were taken care of. On the day of our wedding, they were absolutely flawless with their execution (we did not need a day of coordinator) and they really took care of us (ex: setting up food and champagne in our room while we were getting ready between ceremony and reception, providing us with an attendant all day, and other really amazing details that made the whole day fantastic). We strongly recommend this venue!!

    The Best Service

    5 5 1
    We just had the most wonderful experience here. It was a Sunday afternoon wedding and many guests came from out-of-town so we did a family weekend together before the wedding. Gerry Burns and her staff could not have been more accommodating, helpful, and professional. We had beautiful rooms for gathering, for weekend meals, and for hair and makeup. The Conservatory Room is the prettiest place to have a small reception or service. The service for all meals, including a wedding dinner for 280, was the best I have ever seen at a hotel function. It was seamless and perfect. We were lucky to have Megan, Meryl, and Abby assigned to us for the weekend, but I have no doubt the entire staff is also wonderful. Every person I encountered knew how to put service in the term service industry. Each employee was cheerful, professional, hard working (but making it look easy), and helpful, making us feel like VIPs all weekend. This is a Hilton but it had the feel of a classy boutique hotel and a family business at the same time. You cannot go wrong here. It is worth the short trip from NYC to have this beautiful venue and the service you get here.

    The Service is Amazing!

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Hilton Pearl River. It was an absolutely perfect day! The Hilton is beautiful. The grounds are impeccable and the service is amazing! We worked with Gerry Burns in the months leading to our wedding to finalize all the details for our big day. Gerry was so wonderful to work with. She helped us have the day we envisioned. She was incredibly thoughtful and shared her ideas and suggestions. Prior to our wedding, we met with the Maitre d, Derek Rubino. Derek was absolutely awesome and helped make sure the day ran as smoothly as it did. We had no worries the day of, our minds were at total ease, Gerry and Derek had everything taken care of. The food was amazing. Our friends are still raving about the cocktail hour selections and that it was simply the best cocktail hour they have ever been to! The servers were incredibly attentive to all of our guests. Our bridal attendant, Maeve, was so helpful and always made sure our drinks were full and we had everything we needed. We could not have selected a better venue for our wedding!

    An Unbelievable Staff!

    The Hilton Pearl River was absolutely perfect for our wedding! We had our ceremony, reception, and brunch the next day there, and everything was absolutely perfect! It is all right there and so easy. We had the most wonderful wedding! The staff was UNBELIEVABLE! The maitre d', Derek, was so amazing. I cannot even tell you! And the bridal attendant, Linda, was the most amazing, nicest woman in the world. Any time you needed anything, Derek and Linda were right there next to you. My husband and I, not to mention our parents and the entire wedding party, had the most fantastic experience the day of the wedding because of these two! I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone. It is BEAUTIFUL! The food is amazing, and everyone is so wonderful to work with. Simply the best!
