As someone who used to do a lot of event planning I knew the exact style of wedding that I wanted to have. My husband and I researched many, many, many venues online and in person before ultimately deciding to go with the Madison. Having my wedding at the Madison hotel was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the event and the level of service and professionalism that I received from the staff of the Madison along the way. The Madison has an old world elegance and charm that is rare to find. The sophisticated ambiance of the venue was important to me as I did not want my wedding to be a “wedding factory” wedding. However, what is nice about the Madison is that although it is charming and elegant it is backed with the staff of a large well run hotel. The large infrastructure of the Madison and the professionalism of the staff guarantees that the execution of your event will go smoothly and that your guests will have all of the amenities of a well-run hotel at their fingertips. The Madison is centrally located and only a train ride away from NYC making travel to and from airports easy. Economical room rates ($139) make it affordable for your guests to stay overnight allowing for extra "wedding time" at the hotel bar after the reception and at the complimentary breakfast the next day. The Madison has every amenity that a bride could want - - a spacious bridal suite, large separate rooms to do hair and make up, a moderately priced tavern and high end steakhouse to serve as venues for a rehearsal dinner or any pre-wedding preparation. I can't say enough good things about Tim McHale and Joe Zimmerman. I would like to write more good things about my experience at the Madison but this site limits the amount of characters that you could post.

We had our wedding in the conservatory which was beautiful, intimate, and very romantic! From start to finish, The Madison Hotel was accommodating, professional, patient in answering all of my questions, meticulous, attentive, and completely exceeded our expectations. They really went above & beyond with anything additional we requested. The food is excellent too, especially the wedding cake. We received so many compliments on how great the cake was. I have not experienced customer service like this in a very long time- top notch!

My husband and I got married at the Madison just like week, and the day was amazing. We worked with Tim from the very beginning. He helped us to design our day and the menu exactly as we wanted. The food was delicious from cocktail hour to dinner and our amaxing cake. The conservatory is beautifully decorated for the season and looked gorgeous in the evening. We heard only good things from our guests about the food and the service. Our maitre D' was Joe. He was very attentive and went above and beyond to make the night personalized and special for us. Thank you to everyone at the Madison for making our day wonderful, we cannot say enough good things.

A truly magical evening:

Words alone cannot convey the level of excellence that The Madison Hotel provided for our wedding. Having worked in the wedding industry for twelve years, I had been in and out of a lot of catering halls, banquet halls and other facilities in that time. I have seen almost everything from the bargain basement to the truly elegant yet nothing in my experience has even come close to that which was provided by the staff and facilities of The Madison Hotel. As we are an older couple, we were looking for an elegant setting for our wedding and the Conservatory provided that setting. The setting alone does not make or break the wedding but a location without service does not a wedding make. The Madison Hotel provided excellence above and beyond in location/setting, personal service, food quality, food quantity and a warm and welcoming facility. Our expectations were exceeded in every aspect from initial planning and booking through to the last dance of the night. Starting with Tim, the banquet manager, working with the different staff through the process and finally to Joe, our Maitre D' and all of the wait staff, they left nothing to chance, and not a single detail got over looked. The Madison Hotel is far and above the best venue in New Jersey to hold a wedding and a reception, bar none. When compared to other venues and factoring in all of the hidden charges that other venues fail to disclose up front, The Madison Hotel provides a far superior service and setting dollar for dollar. Our guests all expressed the same thought to us throughout the day, "This was the nicest wedding/reception that they had ever been to". Thank you Tim, Joe and all of the rest of the staff at The Madison Hotel for making our day truly magical!!!

We can not thank the staff at The Madison Hotel enough for everything you all did to make our event the most incredible memory of our lives. Words can not express our gratitude to the entire staff at the Madison Hotel. With all of the details - there was not a thing you missed or an item overlooked. Just simply impeccable. The service, the food, the set-up - all so well coordinated and well executed. It was just beautiful! So many of our guests have written thank you notes praising the hotel, the service, the delicious food and the warmth and feeling you helped give to each and every guest. A very special thank you again to Tim & Sara, and the entire staff from Sunday night, for making our dreams come true! You are SUCH a pleasure to work with and made a lot of tricky arrangements seem simple and possible. We feel so incredibly blessed and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your support, hard work, dedication and care.

We were married at The Madison on 10/11/15, and I still can't put in to words how amazing our experience was. Tim worked with us, and no matter how many questions, emails, phone calls I made to him, he was always available and prompt with above and beyond responses. The day of the wedding we worked with Carolina who came to be one of the most important people for me that day. She was simply awesome. The conservatory is beautiful, the food is outstanding, the accommodations were perfect. Our guests are still telling us what a fantastic wedding it was....highly recommend!

I went to college at Fairleigh Dickinson, and knew then that the Conservatory was where I wanted to get married. So far everything has been great. Looking forward to continuing planning!

I went to college at Fairleigh Dickinson, and knew then that the Conservatory was where I wanted to get married. The wedding (9/19/15) was everything my husband and I could dream of. We worked with Tim Mchale during the entire planning process. His emails were usually prompt. I will say that the only thing that really bothered me during the whole planning and event is that during our pre-event meeting about a month or so before the wedding, Tim threw in having wine on the table. I didn't notice they weren't there, but my Dad did say something. I didn't have a preference to begin with, but since he threw it in, of course it's a nice added feature.

The other reviewers are right - the conservatory is beautiful and you really can't appreciate it's beauty until you are saying your vows or seeing the room the first time after they break down the ceremony, or having your first dance while the sun had just gone down, it's absolutely beautiful.

The day of, we worked with Joe Zimmerman, and I have to tell you, he blew my expectations away as far as what a matire d' should do. My first impression was that immediately after the ceremony, he met us in the Madison Suite where I got ready in prior with a bottle of champagne, and a few of the passed hor devours. He then offered to get a plate of whatever I wanted from my cocktail hour for my husband and I. During the ceremony, my glass (water and wine) was never empty. This review I am giving does not do him justice. Towards the end of the night, Joe came over and asked if I needed anything to be put in the room. Everything made it to the room and was placed neatly in the corner. Everyone raved about the food and the beauty of the room. do yourself a favor and make your dreams come true with the Conservatory.

My husband and I were so happy with our choice of the Madison Hotel. We worked with Joe Z, who was professional and friendly in every way. The conservatory is a venue unlike any other - simply stunning. The food was incredible. Some of our guests thought the cocktail hour was dinner and were gobsmacked when they realized that there was a four-course meal to follow! The ice cream bar was also a huge hit.

My husband and I were especially grateful that Joe Z brought us samplings of the food from our cocktail hour. We had elected to take photos during that time and weren't able to see the lavish spread of hors d'oeuvres, however Joe made sure we were able to sample whatever we wanted. He was a fabulous maitre d' and took care of every tiny detail with care.

We have already highly recommended The Madison to friends who were looking for a venue. We'd book it again in a heartbeat!

I can't express how happy my husband and I were at our wedding this past weekend (Aug 15, 2015). We had our ceremony and reception at the Conservatory at the Madison Hotel and it couldn't have been more perfect.
We booked our event with Sara Maurer in catering and she was with us every step of the way. She was prompt and helpful with all of questions and made me feel comfortable leaving things in her hands. On the day of we worked with Charles Dietz who was equally as great with assisting us. He was always available and nearby if we needed anything which is so helpful when there are a million people to see.
The pictures of the Conservatory are beautiful, but there is nothing like saying your vows or having your first dance in the breathtaking room. All of the food was amazing, especially the dinner entree of Chateaubriand. Our wedding cake was delicious as well and everyone loved the ice cream sundae bar.
The hotel itself is also great and our honeymoon suite was perfect. We only wish we'd been able to fully take advantage of it. The complimentary continental breakfast in the morning is also great to have for any overnight guests.
Our guests couldn't stop raving about how much fun they had, how good the food was, and how stunning the room was. It was the best night of our lives!
