The Grand Summit Hotel was absolutely amazing to work with when planning our wedding, our day was stunning and flawless. Jimmy and his staff were so helpful with arranging all that we wanted for the reception and hotel stay. The reception was beautiful, the food was simply amazing and the entire evening felt intimate and exclusive with just our family and friends. You will not be disappointed with the quality of service, the charm of the hotel and all that this venue has to offer. A huge thank you to Jimmy for being so accommodating and making our day perfect!

Having been born and raised in NJ (union county) The Grand Summit was a familiar and perfect choice for us. I've been a guest at weddings there before and have dined in The Hat Tavern and am always happy leaving an event/dinner.
From day one, Teresa, Michael, Kathy and the whole team were amazing. They were prompt in returning emails/phone calls, gave us great advice on other vendors, and broke down our menu choices so that our guests would have a delicious variety of foods.
Our guests are still raving about the cocktail hour and stations that we had. Half of them were from out of state and they were so appreciative to go from reception, to the fun after party downstairs, to the lobby after the bar closed, then up to their beds! We didn't want the party to stop!
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The recently renovated ballroom and cocktail rooms are absolutely gorgeous. The staff was warm and on hand for whatever we needed. As the bride, they made me feel so special and cared for!
It was an absolutely perfect day and I am so happy The Grand Summit hosted us.

From start to finish in the entire process, The Grand Summit Hotel and their employees were attentive to our wishes and to completing successfully every detail of the wedding weekend. Guests stayed at the Hotel beginning on Thursday evening. The reception was held on Saturday evening, with a beautiful brunch being held on Sunday morning. The food at the reception and brunch was exceptional. Our florist, bus service, DJ and hair salon all were recommended by the Hotel. All of the provided services were exemplary.

So happy with our choice of grand summit hotel!! The place itself is a boutique hotel, which reminds me of a large elegant mansion. My event coordinator was Teresa, she was amazing! The day of the wedding everything was in its place and I really can't think of anything I would change. The food was also delicious and plentiful, they actually made a special station for me to represent my culture(Russian) and that was also delicious. Teresa and the matre'd handled everything during the wedding, there was really nothing for me to do except listen to their directions, go with the flow and have tons of fun.

Our wedding was perfect. Jimmy and Theresa were excellent to work with. The amount of food at our cocktail hour was completely over the top and the quality was fantastic. The service was fabulous and the whole night exceeded our expectations. The only potential downside is that there are limited areas for posed family and bridal party photos on site but the lobby and front facade made for gorgeous pictures! Great location for our rustic but elegant winter wedding

Our daughter was married on Saturday evening, Oct 27, 2012 at the Grand Summit Hotel. It was the perfect wedding we had all hoped for. The ballroom was beautiful, the food was delicious and the service was amazing. We could not have been happier.

Teresa Garcia held my hand over the course of 11 months as we planned every detail of the wedding. This woman is a saint! She was fantastic to work with. And, of course, she was there the night of the wedding to make sure that every single detail went according to plan.

If you are going to get married in this part of NJ, you must put the Grand Summit on your list of venues to seriously consider.

We discovered The Grand Summit Hotel by searching on the usual websites - theKnot, Weddingwire, etc. It was actually the first venue that we looked at in person after we got engaged. We both had a really good feeling about the classic and elegant feel of the hotel, and about the quality of service that Jimmy Thornton and his team would provide. After visiting a couple of other nearby venues - The Manor and Wilshire Grand, we decided to follow our hearts and book the Grand Summit for our wedding. Boy, did we make the right decision.

Everything was perfect the day and night of our wedding. Jimmy's team set everything up exactly as we requested. The atmosphere of the hotel is really lovely, from the classic look of the front hotel entrance, the unique feel of the cocktail hour space with exposed brick and outdoor views, and the grand ballroom. The food was excellent the entire night, from the cocktail hour to the main course and dessert. We've been hearing from many of our guests about how great they thought the food was. As an added bonus, many of our guests stayed over that night at the hotel, so they only had to take a short elevator ride to get to their beds after enjoying the party and open bar! We just love that convenience. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was also very good after a night of partying!

Overall, we could not be happier with our choice of the Grand Summit Hotel for our wedding. Jimmy and his team were a pleasure to work with and made the planning process as easy as possible. We recommend this as a venue to anyone looking for excellent service, great food, and an intimate atmosphere even with a lot of guests. We had 180 guests and it never felt crowded. Thank you Jimmy, Theresa, and the rest of your team!
