We got married at the Grand Summit on Sunday, June 7th. It was magical. Here's why.

Jimmy Thornton: From the first minute we met Jimmy we loved him. He's a total pro who takes tremendous pride in his work and staff.

We had an unusual wedding--a Star Wars/Back to the Future theme--and Jimmy helped ensure that all of the moving parts ran smoothly. Darth Vader needed a changing room? Done. I needed to park a Delorean in the entrance driveway for photos? No problem. After you spend a little time with Jimmy, you get the distinct sense that he's as enthusiastic about making your big day everything that you want it to be as you are. More importantly, he follows through on all of it. He didn't miss a single detail or over-promise anything. He and the Grand Summit staff simply made it happen with great attention to detail. He was kind and generous with us and our families (even when they were occasionally bananas), and he worked with us to give us a dream wedding at a down-to-earth price.
 
The event staff: Kathy and all of the event staff were an absolute dream. Wonderful people, it's hard to find the words to express how much we appreciate all they did to make our wedding absolutely amazing.

The food: We had a buffet brunch, and it was outstanding from the cocktail hour through dessert. Guests especially loved the crab cakes and I was a big fan of the waffle station and the mashed potato bar.

The shuttle bus staff: God bless the folks running the shuttle bus. We had a few requests and Michael was an angel.

The hotel staff: Nicole worked our room block and she was friendly and responsive. Front desk staff was uniformly solid and helpful. My only complaint, and it's a small one, was that I couldn't get late check out the morning after the wedding. It wasn't the end of the world since normal check out was at noon, but this is a tiny drop of complaining in an ocean of good things!

We can't recommend the Grand Summit enough. Our wedding was perfect.

On April 26, 2015 my daughter Anna was married at The Grand Summit Hotel. I can't say enough wonderful things about the whole staff at the hotel and Teresa Garcia in particular. As soon as the engagement was announced my daughter and I headed over to The Grand Summit to see Teresa. In the past thirty years we have had five parties at the hotel; however it was the first wedding. We never even looked anywhere else as we knew this was the best place for us. Teresa could not have done enough to make this wedding a beautiful event. She literally held our hand every step of the way. She advised us on all types of things and recommended a wonderful band (Karisma Music) and some other terrific vendors. The wedding was absolutely beautiful. Everything ran just as it was supposed to. The food was delicious and served so attractively. We had approximately forty guests staying at the hotel and they raved about the rooms and the service. They especially enjoyed the complimentary breakfast every morning and the cozy lobby which encouraged guests to relax with fireplaces, wide screen televisions and complimentary tea and coffee. Some of the guests even came in a few days before the wedding and traveled from Summit to NYC to see some plays and do some sightseeing. My advice to anyone planning an event is the head to The Grand Summit and not to waste time looking anywhere else.

Everything about the Summit Hotel was fantastic!!!! The food was outstanding, the service was over the top and the accomodations were like staying in an elegant country Inn. Guests were sure the vast array of appetizers were surely the meal itself!.....little did they know that there was a decadent dinner menu to be served! The ambiance around the hotel and each of the rooms were warm, friendly and the staff was always ready to accommodate any request. Every staff member of the Summit Hotel greeted guests with a warm smile anxious to accommodate any request. Theresa was a phenomenal venue coordinator and Kathy attended to every need during the wedding event. The lobby itself was like a welcoming living room with a fire, tea and cookies and comfy furniture for guests to relax throughout their stay. The Hat Tavern downstairs served amazing food before and after the wedding ( burgers were over the top!!) Guests enjoyed the cozy pub atmosphere after the wedding was over. A full delicious breakfast/brunch was served each morning. We had many family member stay for several days around the wedding event....they raved about the accomodations, food and eventually - the wedding itself - no one was disappointed and everyone is anxious to return!!!! We all loved everything about the Summit Hotel!!! Thank you for everything you did to make our family wedding everything and more than we all could have imagined!!!

My husband and I had our wedding receptions at The Grand Summit Hotel on January 17, 2015. My husband is from New Providence and we wanted to keep the wedding local. The Grand Summit did a PHENOMENAL job. We could not have imagined a more beautiful day. The wedding coordinators Teresa and Jimmy could not be more helpful, reassuring and professional. They made sure everything went smoothly and how we wished it to be. The staff was kind and attentive to all of our guests making sure everyone had what they needed especially the wedding party our parents. The set up of the room was stunning. The flow of the day was perfect, everything went off without a problem. The cocktail hour was outstanding and the front rooms are gorgeous. The coach room was a gorgeous backdrop for our family portraits and allowed our wedding party, parents and grandparents have a chance to celebrate together before introductions. On top of the gorgeous setting, outstanding customer service and excellent set up, the food was DELICIOUS! Top notch. We also had a room block at The Grand Summit making it easy for our guests especially in the winter weather. The Hat Tavern was excellent for brunch, drinks and meals outside of the wedding. We were even able to get shuttle service from the hotel to the church for our guests staying at the hotel. We do not have a single complaint about the Grand Summit. I would highly recommend this venue to any bride & groom. The service and quality could not be beaten. All of our guests raved about the convenience, the class and the amazing customer service of the ENTIRE Grand Summit staff. We felt like celebrities. I will never forget our day and look forward to staying with the Grand Summit again!

I would highly recommend the Grand Summit Hotel to anyone looking to have an amazing wedding in the area; they really made our wedding truly amazing.

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.
