The Hilton Garden Inn Auburn Riverwatch is located on the Auburn Riverwalk with a vista of the roaring falls. The gorgeous scenery is best enjoyed from the panoramic view that the Riverwatch Grand Ballroom offers, with over 4,000 square feet of private event space.
Jaclyn Berry has been integral in assisting brides to plan their perfect day, from hosting their wedding ceremony and reception to ensuring that every detail is considered and planned thoughtfully. Jaclyn and her team ensure you receive the opportunity to choose the season that best reflects your wedding. Whether you envision a summer or fall outdoor wedding with the falls as your backdrop or a grand ballroom style ceremony in the winter or spring, every vision can accommodate up to 280 guests.
Why choose to have your wedding at the Hilton Garden Inn Auburn Riverwatch? Jaclyn says, “You can host a lavish rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and farewell brunch for under $15,000! Your guests can stay comfortably in the hotel, so no need to shop for shuttles. In fact, the happy couple receives their suite for free when you host your event with us! We have a built-in dance floor, our own full service restaurant, is situated within walking distance to local Auburn restaurants, and we are pleased to assist with our preferred vendors for anything else you may need. In short, we take all of the stress out of planning and allow the couple to simply make their choices. We take it from there!
Our banquet coordinator is on-site all day on the big day to ensure that every detail is taken care of.”
