Why We Like This Place

Modern, trendy, and conveniently located, The Hills Hotel is perfect for an Orange County destination wedding. At this upscale boutique hotel, you have everything you need in one place: a variety of versatile event spaces, accommodations for all your guests, and plenty of local attractions and activities to keep everyone entertained.

A grand staircase (or elevator) takes you up to the third floor where celebrations unfold. You’ll have exclusive use of the entire level, and can choreograph your event in whatever way works best for you.

The festivities typically start with guests mingling on the Mezzanine at the top of the stairs. Next, you may opt to have your ceremony in The Veranda, an atrium-style corridor next to the ballroom. Illuminated by seven crystal chandeliers and a wall of windows, the space also lends itself to a cocktail hour or a buffet setup during dinner in the ballroom. Alternatively, you can serve your guests drinks and appetizers in the Crystal Lounge. Here, they can relax on white tufted benches or step outside for a little fresh air on the adjoining patio, which gets some extra sparkle from white star lights strung overhead.

Receptions are hosted in the Crystal Ballroom, where the six glittering crystal chandeliers cast a warm glow on the shimmering, pearlescent walls. LED lights in the ceiling can be set to a range of colors, allowing you to create the mood you desire.

Two additional spaces on the first floor give you more options. The Garnet Gallery, done in rich tones of maroon, purple, and gold, is ideal for a smaller ceremony or reception. If you’re planning a rehearsal dinner or very intimate ceremony, reserve the Platinum Room.

The Crystal Wedding Reception Package offers a long list of amenities: customizable menus; complimentary bride & groom entrées; wedding cake; Chiavari chairs; and much more. As newlyweds, you’ll also receive a complimentary room (with a sweet gift of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries) … and the next morning you’ll enjoy a complimentary breakfast in bed or in the Hills Restaurant. There’s a separate Ceremony Package that includes a celebratory post-ceremony toast with the bridal party.

Guests staying the weekend will be happy they did! The Hills Hotel is close to beaches, art galleries, shopping, and fine dining, not to mention Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Mission Viejo Lake, and Laguna Niguel Regional Park. Those preferring to unwind on site can take a dip in the pool or listen to live music in the hotel’s Emerald Lounge on Friday and Saturday evening.

Weddings, private parties, meetings, and other special occasions are all equally at home at The Hills Hotel. And no matter what event you have in mind, their highly experienced team is dedicated to making it a memorable one!
