I got married at the American Hotel yesterday and everything was PERFECT! This is such a beautiful and unique venue. The chandeliers, fireplaces, and decor make the hotel feel so elegant and classic. The banquet manager Joy and maitre de Jim made wedding planning pleasant and stress-free. The day of the wedding, they made sure my husband and I were happy and fed all night. They worked well with my other vendors (dj, photographer, florist) to make sure that everything went smoothly from start to finish. I highly recommend this venue to anyone who wants to get married at a boutique hotel. We were able to move the party to the hotel bar after the reception, which stays open until almost 2am. We were then able to go right upstairs to go to bed, instead of having to take a shuttle or drive home. The hotel rooms all look brand new and they were spotless. The hotel also serves continental breakfast in the morning, so it was nice to spend a little extra time with my guests before leaving in the morning. I wouldn't have changed a thing about my wedding at the American Hotel. We plan on going back for our anniversary!

Planning a wedding can be a very overwhelming experience, however, once we booked our date with The American Hotel, it got much easier! My husband and I found this little gem in Freehold for dinner one night for our dating anniversary, and the rest is history! We were shocked at the value of this venue, and were very pleased with the quality of our event. It was literally the best night of our lives! Joy was great and so helpful with all of my questions with planning, and Jim really did an amazing job pulling everything together the day of. I would highly recommend The American Hotel for any event!

I can't say anything negative about the american hotel! It was our dream venue and more than we could have imagined!!! Joy was fantastic and helped us with every step! Jim was always by my side the day of and when I needed him he was there! He kept it running on time and even helped when I got sick during the reception. My husband had a special meal during the reception and we even had special meals for our guest. He worked with all our crazy quirks and I couldn't recommend a better venue to anyone!!!

We could not be more happy with our decision to have our wedding at the American Hotel! Joy and Jim were fantastic to work with!! Joy helped select and narrow down every detail about the wedding. Come the big day, everything ran smoothly thanks to Jim, our matre d, and he quickly dealt with any unexpected issues so we didn’t have to worry about anything! They both provided personal attention to our event every step along the way, from planning and opinions on food options to every detail throughout the day.

In addition to having our reception in the gorgeous Lennox and Majestic ballrooms, we held the ceremony in Royale ballroom, which provided an intimate yet comfortable space for our 115 guests. We loved the simplicity of having all the events in the same location, and each part of the night easily flowed from one room to the next. On top of everything else good to say, the food is delicious (make sure you get the guacamole cones)!

If you are considering the American Hotel for your wedding (or any other event), look no further!!

Finding the right venue can be hard, and sometimes you know immediately, that was the feeling we had when walking into The American Hotel, we knew this was the right place. From their Lobby to the rooms it was perfect, there is a certain ambiance when you walk into this building that is hard to miss. We wanted to have a small intimate classy wedding and this place had everything we needed. Joy and Jim put together a memorable event that guest are still talking about. The cocktail hour was incredible, our friends and family have comment on how good the food was, and the staff were all attentive and provided a first class level of service that's hard to match, looking back on our day we would not change a thing. Any couple looking for first class service, incredible food that your guest can't stop talking about, then this is your place, Joy and Jim will make your wedding one to remember, and the ambiance of a New Orleans hotel in downtown Freehold make for great photos opts. Thank you, Joy and Jim for everything we highly recommend The American Hotel. Lori & AJ, July 3rd 2016

My husband and I fell in love with The American Hotel for our winter wedding because the ceremony and reception rooms were both beautiful and had big fireplaces. Getting married in winter made it hard to find venues with pretty ceremony rooms, but American Hotel made our ceremony beautiful! We got married in front of the fireplace with rose petals in the isle and candles all over the mantle, it was very romantic. Then the reception room was even more gorgeous! All of my guests were coming up to me telling me how beautiful everything was! Jim and Joy were awesome And a pleasure to work with, We planned the whole wedding in 6 months and they made that possible. We couldn't be happier with how our day turned out! Highly reccomend The American Hotel!
