"Gem Venue Minutes from Dallas", An Eventective User from Lewisville, TX
Last October my wife and I got married at the Hilton DFW Lakes in Grapevine, Texas. We had an outdoor wedding with an indoor reception. The outdoor space was beautiful , with its crape myrtles and large pond surrounded with tree just behind. The only down side is that it is near the airport so planes over head could be an issue. There are different size reception areas to suit your needs. The room we chose accommodated 100 people comfortably. The room included a small dance floor, a large center table for the cake, and an area for the bar. Before the ceremony the groom's party and myself had a few drinks at the Bonnie and Clyde Bar which is off the back side of the hotel. It had a nice patio area with sports on the TV to keep your mind off of ceremony. After the reception the party continued in our large complimentary suite. Everyone from the bridal party came up for awhile, until they were all kicked out. Over all we had an amazing experience and would not have changed a thing. The staff was very helpful in the planning process and where all very courteous. The food was five star and served with the greatest of care. The food was probably the best part though we did not get to fully enjoy it due to the fact all are family members wanted to talk to us. If we could get married again we would do in a heartbeat. Simply an amazing experience.

"A Great Conference Venuw", An Eventective User from Washington, DC
For my job, I am often invited to conference throughout the country and very nice hotels. My experience at the Hitlon in Dallas/Fort Worth is one that I think of as my favorite. The hotel is located in a great area. The lobby itself is also very nice, but this is not what I want to write about. The most impressive part of this center is the uncomparable choice of conference rooms to be used for the particular meeting. It was incredible. Each floor had about ten or twenty conference rooms that are fully equipped with the materials needed in a meeting. This includes theaters if needed, projectors for PowerPoint presentations, podiums, and everything in between. The chairs were particularly comfortable and there were beautiful wooden tables available. We were in the Delaney I and II. We went between these two rooms and when we were not in II, they were setting it up for the delicious catered meals that were part of our accommodation there. The rooms could be set up in different ways and we utilized this for the separate meetings that made up the conference altogether. I think we utilized what they called the classroom most often. The many options of rooms allow conferences to decide how they would like to split up their meetings. It was an excellent meeting experience that was well organized and well managed by the Hilton. I am always hoping to be invited to another conference at this venue because I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. It is one of the most professional conference centers that I have attended.

"Everything's Bigger in Texas", An Eventective User from Des Plaines, IL
The conference room at the Hilton is great for a conference with easily over 1,000 people. I wasn't sure so many people and so many tables could fit in such a space but the Hilton pulled it off. With such a large group we were worried about making last minute adjustments to the reservations, but there were no issues! Reservations and meal passes could be changed even the day of our event. Overall, the staff went leaps and bounds over my expectations. Extra airport transportation was even available for our use! And of course a fan favorite was the delicious buffet dinner.

"Full-service Accommodations Including Rooms, Shuttle Service, and Meals", An Eventective User from Fort Worth, Texas
Complete Meeting Package

I was in charge of interviewing, selecting, and following through with potential conference rooms for a regional meeting (I work in retail). While working at a previous job many years before, I attended a one-day meeting at the Hilton Lakes DFW and had been impressed at the time. The meeting that I was in charge of organizing needed to accommodate 50 individuals from different sites and departments, and would take up three days and two nights. After I contacted the main desk, a representative offered to meet with me that same day to discuss my needs, details, capacity and so forth. This took me by surprise; in the past I have had difficulties with hotels and conference halls that really didn't seem to care whether I used their services or not.

Within four hours, I had decided to go for the Complete Meeting Package because it offered the amenities that would make this a smooth, worry-free event. This option also allowed my company to save money because it included shuttle service to and from the airport; no more rental car fees and participants were more likely to arrive at their final destination in time. Hilton Lakes also offered our presenters full use of audiovisual equipment and office supplies (projector, wireless microphones, speakers, white board). There was a minor glitch trying to set up the speakers and managing the sound quality, but the problem was quickly resolved before the meeting was underway. Afterward, many of the attendees commented on the courtesy of the attendants who offered hot and cold drinks, fresh fruits, and buffet service. The package also included standard fare such as use of hotel facilities, high speed WiFi access, and executive suites. All in all, I was able to come in under budget and the conference was considered very successful. Thanks, Hilton Lakes!​
