The Hills Hotel, An Ascend Hotel Collection Member

25205 La Paz Road Laguna Hills, CA
Max Capacity: 300 people
If first impressions make a lasting impression, then The Hills Hotel is a place you’re definitely going to remember. After our recent multi-million dollar transformation, this boutique hotel is now a trendy, upscale venue for special events. Located in the rolling hills of the southern part of Orange County, we welcome guests from Los Angeles, San Diego to everyone across the country—all looking to host their celebration in glamorous surroundings. A grand staircase leads up to the Mezzanine level, where you’ll find four event spaces that you can use in the way that best suits your wedding or private party. Guests can mingle in any of the three pre-function areas. Each has its own ambiance. Walls are covered in light gray leather panels, an understated backdrop to the iridescent crystal imbeded sign that announces the adjoining ballroom. Silvery, textured custom-designed doors open to the Crystal Ballroom, which lives up to its name. Formal and elegant, it’s outfitted with crown molding, mirror-backed wall sconces and six glittering beaded crystal chandeliers ringed with sparkling “candles.” The walls have a subtle shimmer, thanks to ground crystals embedded in the pearl-colored paper. Colored LED lights in the coffered ceiling and up lighting along the room’s perimeter allow you to create whatever atmosphere you desire: Choose shades of blue or purple for a sultry, nightclub feeling, or use pink or amber tones for something more romantic or festive. Chiavari chairs (available in a selection of colors) add a sophisticated touch. Ceremonies can take place in the Crystal Ballroom, but they’re often held in the Veranda, an atrium-style corridor that runs the length of the ballroom. Light comes from seven crystal chandeliers suspended from the tray ceiling, as well as from a wall of windows overlooking the trees right outside and the mountains in the distance. This area is also well suited for a cocktail reception or a buffet setup during dinner in the ballroom. The Crystal Lounge is ideal for relaxing on white tufted benches while sipping cocktails, sampling appetizers and perhaps watching the bride and groom’s life stories playing on TV monitors. The Patio, which is staged with lounge furniture, provides another comfortable spot. It has a fuel-burning fireplace and TV monitor, and can double as a cigar lounge. Couples getting married here have two additional ceremony options: the Garnet Gallery and the Platinum Room. All ceremonies include the rehearsal and the assistance of an on-staff coordinator. The hotel’s Diamond and Emerald Packages offer a long list of amenities: a champagne toast, the meal, wedding cake, linens, lighting, dance floor, and more. And when the wedding comes to a close, the newlyweds can retire to their complimentary room, where a sweet gift of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries awaits. The next morning, they’ll enjoy a complimentary breakfast in bed or in the hotel restaurant. Close to beaches, art galleries, shopping, fine dining, local attractions and more, The Hills Hotel is a convenient choice for a destination wedding.
