There is no better feeling than knowing that your guests will wake up, get ready, attend a ceremony, have the best party, and go to sleep (maybe) in all one location. I searched for months for the perfect venue - ultimately realizing that a venue that is all inclusive for my guests (mostly out of town) makes the most sense. Although The Heldrich doesn't have what other wedding venues typically have in-house (chivari chairs) that is the only thing that this venue could use - - but guess what - - SO easy for the hotel coordinator to order the chairs from their vendor. So easy. I also chose to rent Christopher's restaurant for my ceremony - best decision ever - with $400 pipe and draping to cover the exposed kitchen, a Jewish ceremony couldn't have been more perfect for a wedding of 200 guests. Now, listen up - - we all say that food and entertainment is the most important thing to a wedding, right?! Well, become this hotel has an executive chef for the attached restaurant, that chef cooks the food for the wedding - the tasting, inclusive of booking a wedding, was hands down, the best filet mignon, stuffed chicken and salmon we ever tasted. Consider the perks: amazing executive suites, on-site ceremony and reception ballroom, after party in the hotel bar, downtown New Brunswick vibes, STATE theatre across the street (great photo ops) - check this place out!!!

The location is not only ideal in the center of a pretty college town, but the staff under their GM Stacy Martin work tirelessly to ensure your event (our son's marriage) will go off flawlessly. From Tiffany in sales, to the front office managers like Ryan, Ali at night to Housekeeping, valet...they all work as a team to ensure your experience is first class. As a Marriott, Starwood, Hilton executive member I would not have thought to use this Benchmark Property as my first choice since I don't get points. But what we received was much more of value, amazing customer service to deliver a WOW experience. Kudos to GM Stacy Martin and her team for making this a memorable experience for us.

We originally booked this hotel as room block for our wedding guests. Our wedding was at Rutgers Gardens so it was nice to be downtown/close by. Verbally promised us a certain number of rooms, guests started to call to book and that is how we found out they sold out/our rooms to an armenian youth group. The cost was higher than most hotels in the area, the rooms are tiny, and instead of communicating they could make more money selling our rooms to a larger group we had to find out from our guests which was embarrassing. Thank god we were able to switch to the Hilton in East Brunswick that was cheaper for our guests, much nicer rooms etc... One of our guests even got charged twice even though they cancelled. I do not recommend this hotel, I know they will stay in the wedding business due to location, but think twice before using.

“Hi Elyse and Andy,
We were very much looking forward to hosting your guests for this special event. We are truly sorry we were unable to accommodate your request for additional rooms over Labor Day Weekend. We were sold out at the time of the request, as all of our groups had requested more rooms prior. We honored those requests to the best of our ability at the time of the request.

We are happy to hear that you were able to make arrangements at the Hilton East Brunswick, and your guests were well taken care of.

Congratulations, we wish you both all the best.

- The Team at The Heldrich Hotel

We could not have been more pleased with our wedding at The Heldrich in April. We had an absolutely incredible time and it had so much to do with the staff that worked on our event and the remarkable service they provided. When we had initially booked our date we were paired with one of the sales manager on staff, but she left about 6 months before our wedding and we were moved to working with Andrew Dale. Andrew was so responsive and patient through our entire planning process. With every question and concern he provided expertise and careful suggestions along the way. The rest of the catering staff took great care of us and our guests all night, and we've heard from many of our guests how wonderful the service was at the tables. The chef and kitchen staff are as talented and wonderful as the catering staff. The Heldrich's menu is so creative and we were so impressed when choosing our courses, at the tasting, and finally how the food turned out the night of our wedding. Our guests are still raving about the food. At the end of the night we moved into Christopher's bar for an afterparty where the bartenders were so nice and attentive. With complimentary suites and great room rates we were at the hotel from Friday to Sunday and every person on staff that we encountered was so kind and accommodating. Our guests especially loved the convenience of having their hotel room and wedding in the same place. We made the best decision in choosing to have our wedding at The Heldrich and would for sure recommend this fabulous venue to anyone looking to hold their event in the area.

We had looked at several venues and were impressed with The Heldrich. We rented out the restaurant (Christopher's) for our cocktail hour and had our reception in the ballroom. We wanted a hotel venue where our bridal party and out of town guests could spend the day before/day of on site. Very close proximity (1/2 mile) to our ceremony site (Kirkpatrick Chapel at Rutgers - we are both RU alums) made The Heldrich the ideal location for our reception. The service, staff attentiveness to detail and food quality/presentation are top notch. We still get compliments from our guests on how amazing the food was! Our event manager, Nicole Calabria went above & beyond to work very closely with me on every detail and was very responsive to any changes throughout the process. Our tasting was even impressive - full meals prepared for us and our parents in a private dining room. We had a complimentary suite (2 nights) + room for the groom (night before) included as well as valet parking. The cake (subcontracted to Palermo's) was beautiful & delicious -- very moist and designed to my flavor and decor specifications. We also added a Viennese dessert table and cappuccino station which got rave reviews from our guests.

The only issues I encountered were that the some of the direction/reservation cards supplied were smudged, our amenity baskets were not placed in the restrooms nearest the ballroom entrance and retrieving cars from valet was an ordeal the night before (for our rehearsal/dinner) as there were multiple events going on. There was also a mix-up at the reservation desk with my in-laws room which was quickly rectified by the desk supervisor.

We stayed at The Heldrich this past New Year's Eve and were happy to return. I would stay again if in New Brunswick and would recommend The Heldrich, particularly for a Rutgers wedding!

We had our daughter's wedding at The Heldrich in May of 2014 and it was a great experience thanks to Nicole Calabria. All of our guests had very clean modern rooms and the staff was very helpful. The food they served was some of the best food we've ever had (and I've been to over 300+ weddings as a photographer). I would highly recommend this venue for any event.

I had my wedding reception at the Heldrich hotel on 5/26/13 and it was the best day ever!

I began planning my wedding about 10 months in advance - since it was a big Indian wedding and all of my events were on separate days (pre-party on thursday, wedding on saturday and reception on sunday) it was a bit difficult to find venues that were unique, accommodating, had good locations and of course, gorgeous! The Heldrich was the first venue that I choose and I couldn't have been happier with it.

I found the Heldrich from online searching/the wedding websites and contacted their catering manager, Andrew Dale. We came in to check out the space - the decor and ambiance of the heldrich sells itself - it's beautiful, clean and contemporary with tons of art all over, spacious (we had 400 people) and grand. Despite immediately deciding that it was right for me, Andrew still took the time to show us around and helped us in vision what our event could look like.

For reference:
Cocktail hour in Christopher's Restaurant
Reception in the ballroom
After party in the hotel lobby bar

Once we began planning - Andrew was nothing but helpful and communicative with me for the next 7 months until my event (I know - such little time!). I'm not from new jersey and don't know about the area so Andrew constantly helped me figure things out along the way. Aside from basic wedding planning needs - he helped me find a ceremony location for my wedding the day prior, gave me tons of vendor lists, and was really there for me throughout the process.

As soon as I checked in at the Heldrich the afternoon before my event, Andrew was in communication with me and tied up all my loose ends.

Come the actual party - everything was beautiful, service was smooth, and Andrew was around the whole night, followed my itinerary and made sure everything went perfectly.

I wanted to write more but ran out space so to wrap it up - I love The Heldrich Hotel!
