100 Lakeside Ave E, Cleveland, OH 44114
The Hilton Downtown has quickly become one of Cleveland’s most popular spots for all things weddings. Whether you are just looking for a place for your bridal party to get ready, or you are looking for a ceremony and reception location, The Hilton has it all.
The Hilton boasts a very modern and sleek aesthetic both inside and out. The hotel suites are the biggest in the city and offer amazing views of both the city and the lake with their floor to ceiling windows. The lobby area on the ballroom floors is very spacious and can serve as an excellent indoor photo location. There are two small balconies on the fourth floor that can be unlocked by request. These overlook Mall B and C and much of Downtown Cleveland’s skyline. The balconies are on the east side of the building so light is perfect for bridal portraits in the late afternoon.
Outdoor photo opportunities abound the moment you take a step outside. The Hilton is right next door to Cleveland’s iconic mall B, an open grassy field with excellent views of Cleveland’s skyline. Immediately across the street is Cleveland’s historic Old Courthouse. We love using the east side of the building for mid-day first looks before we head off with the bridal party for our photo destinations.
The ballrooms at the Hilton are absolutely massive. They can easily be divided down so that you can have your ceremony set up in one room, and your reception set up in the room next door. The lobbies on the ballroom levels offer ample space for cocktail hour.
If you are planning a wedding at The Hilton Downtown Cleveland, we would love to hear from you! We love shooting there and we have a lot of experience doing so.
