Emeryville Wedding Venue
1800 Powell Street
Emeryville, California 94608
A recent multimillion-dollar remodel has transformed this Hilton into an extremely appealing East Bay venue for special events. Conveniently located just minutes from the Bay Bridge, yet eons away from the urban hustle, it has easy access to every Bay Area attraction. But it’s unlikely you or your guests will want to venture too far afield: The hotel presides over some of the region’s most spectacular protected shoreline (think romantic walk along the water at sunset), and there are plenty of topnotch amenities and entertainment options at the hotel and in its surroundings to keep you happily occupied.
Greet your guests in the hotel’s attractive new lobby. The sophisticated, residential-style environment makes it a great place for family, friends and colleagues to congregate and relax. The roomy, lobby-level lounge and the Great American Grill, with its airy indoor and outdoor seating, make for cheery meetings and reunions. A 4,000-square-foot, ballroom-capacity Conference Center on the ground floor can be divided into four separate sections, and is easily adapted to suit any number of social or corporate events. French doors off the lobby lead to an elegant cloistered space for more intimate private gatherings.
Want to set your sights higher? Let the elevators whisk you up 14 stories to the top floor of the hotel. Here you’ll find the jewel in the crown of this handsome Hilton Garden Inn. Step into a spacious foyer carpeted in rich shades of rust and green. Registration can be set up here for events held in the Placer Room, with its wall of windows and view of the Berkeley hills. Or ascend the four granite-banistered steps at the end of the foyer to the Top Of The Bay Ballroom. On the other side of the double doors you’ll be welcomed with eye-popping, jaw-dropping, bridge-to-bridge views of the sparkling bay and the cities around it. Emeryville, Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, bridges, parklands, mountaintops, and marinas—you’ll feel as if the entire Bay Area is within your grasp. This grand ballroom, which can be divided into two smaller salons, will turn any event into a gala.
Hilton Garden Inns get high ratings in customer satisfaction, and for good reason. They provide expert on-site wedding planning and catering staff, custom menu options and competitive pricing. They’ll help you arrange a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner along with your reception, and take good care of all of your overnight guests. When the sun sets exquisitely upon your extravaganza, don’t give up the glamour. Let the hotel staff shower you with that celebrated Hilton hospitality in the Premier Bridal Suite (with a parlor and two bedrooms!) or one of their other newly decorated, gorgeously appointed guestrooms.
