I was so pleased with the Hill Center. The staff were attentive and pleasant from the coordinators I spoke with to the people who were going to lock up after us. The space is simple but beautiful in that old world kind of way: the windows are nice and big and let in a ton of light. Even with minimal decor (a few flowers on the tables and table cloths) our event looked beautiful and elegant. Being the matron of honor and doing a bridalshower was stressful but the hill center made the experience soooo much easier and I'm grateful! I cant sing their praises enough. Overall wonderful experience! Can't wait to find another excuse to use them again!
The Hill Center was the perfect venue for my daughter's baby shower. We could not accommodate 30-35 friends and family for a luncheon in the homes of the planners. The Drummond & Jacobs rooms afforded us an intimate experience despite being a public building. The planners were able todetermine the degree of informality/formallity which allowed all present to relax and enjoy each others' company. The Staff at the Center exceeded all our expectations in planning,
implementation and set-up. Lisa and Divinity were very patient with our many questions and accommodated all our requests. Jerrod was there on the Saturday of the event to respond to last minute needs, and Frank, the set-up/take down man, was on hand with a smile for every question including taking photos.
This could not have been any more perfect thanks to all at the Center.
