My daughter just had her wedding reception at The Madison Hotel and it was truly exceptional. From the planning stages to the cocktail hour and reception, every single person at The Madison Hotel was helpful, professional and amazing. The food at the cocktail hour was absolutely to die for and the guests raved about the wedding dinner. The Conservatory looked like something out of a fairy tale - absolutely beautiful. The service was outstanding and we could not have been happier. We would recommend most highly The Madison Hotel as a wonderful wedding venue!

I had always dreamed about having my wedding reception in the Conservatory at the Madison Hotel, and when my fiance and I got engaged that dream came true. We were able to work with everyone at the Madison regarding blocking hotel rooms, choosing food and appetizers, decor and setup, and overall planning of the wedding. Every single person that we interacted was truly exceptional in helping us plan and deliver a one of a kind wedding reception. They were so flexible, patient, kind, understanding, and professional as changes arose. The Conservatory was absolutely gorgeous for our wedding reception it was more than we could have ever dreamed of. One of our favorite parts about our wedding reception was the food. It was delicious and there was something for everyone. All of our wedding guests raved about how good the food was, and even some of our guests took home doggie bags. My personal favorite was the ice cream sundae bar. Since all of the staff at the Madison are so professional the service was outstanding. Every aspect of our reception went off without a hitch, and everyone felt that they were in such good hands. We would highly recommend the Madison Hotel for any event, and a big thank you to them for making our day so special!

The Madison Hotel was a wonderful place to have my daughter and son in law's wedding. The room is exquisite. The food is delicious and well prepared. The staff are courteous, flexible and accommodating. My son in law and his brother are vegetarians and vegans. The Madison hotel provided delicious and creative options for them. We worked closely with Charles Dietz planning the wedding. He was also the maitre d' at her wedding. He was conscienscious and attentive to our guests and our needs. Over all I would say that the Madison Hotel treated my guests with the type of hospitality I would give them in my home. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is planning a wedding or any other party.

I highly recommend the Madison Hotel. The food was delicious and our guests were raving about it all night and in the weeks after. The cocktail hour was a huge success, the wait staff was attentive and professional. The dinner was excellent and our guests enjoyed all of the meal options, from the chateaubriand to the vegetable tart, everything was fantastic.

Leading up to the event, our event coordinator Sara, was always available for any questions or concerns. She and the rest of the staff made us feel confident that we had made the right choice of venue and the event would run smoothly.

As soon as we saw pictures online of this venue we knew it would be the one... at our visit we were ready to sign the papers! Through the entire process Sara made us feel like we were her only clients. She is such an enthusiastic, thoughtful, organized, accommodating, friendly and professional person. We felt so lucky to be in such wonderful hands! We had the longest list of special touches and instructions and upon arrival for our rehearsal dinner, Joe took over and executed everything to perfection and I never even had to explain my vision or review the details with him - he just knew what to do! It was such a relief! The fact that we had the rehearsal dinner there, got ready there and had the ceremony and reception all in one spot was just the best. It really made the entire weekend much more relaxing. Our photographer was able to get amazing photos on the grounds because it is such a beautiful, classic venue. The food was beyond exquisite and plentiful to say the least, the service from every single person on their staff was incredible. Anything we needed we had instantly. And there are just no words for the ambiance. Our ceremony and reception was in the Conservatory and that room is just dream like. All our guests and people who have only seen pictures have been floored by the beauty of it all. No matter what the weather outside, the Conservatory gives you the best of both an indoor wedding with an outdoor feeling. I have no negative words about any second of our experience at The Madison Hotel and am so thankful for how magical our wedding was there. We will cherish our memories there forever!

My new husband and I would like to thank the entire staff at the Madison Hotel for making our wedding even more beautiful than we could have imagined. Every single person who works there is a true professional and accommodating. Joe helped us to plan our big day, and we would like to thank him for being so helpful and calming. Any time I sent him an email or called him, he was able to provide his expertise and experience to help me. The day before our wedding, we dropped off 10 big boxes of centerpieces, place cards, etc. I was concerned that it would be too much, but Joe assured me that it was fine. Charles was our Maitre D’ during the wedding, and I cannot say enough about his level of service. Not only did he help us with anything we needed that day, but he also anticipated what my concerns might be and reassured me that everything was okay throughout the night. I had different centerpieces at each table, and Charles and the amazing staff made each table look perfect. Charles even fixed my dress before I walked down the aisle! Charles enabled me to actually relax and enjoy my big day! Beyond the beauty of the Conservatory, the Madison Hotel offers true service and made our event incredibly special. There is literally not one thing I can think of that I wished would have been different, and that is amazing! Thank you to Joe, Charles, and the wonderful staff!

Amusingly enough, my now husbands sister and cousin had gotten married here in years past, so when we first started looking at venues, I was trying to steer away from that direction since I wanted to be different. We looked at a bunch of different ones and this was one of the last we saw. As soon as we walked in, I was in love with it. The Madison has such a classic elegance to it, I just knew it was where I wanted to have our reception. We worked with Charles for most of the process and he was such a sweetheart. He was very responsive with our phone calls and questions. The day of, Tim was our coordinator. He made sure that everything went smoothly. The food and service was incredible. Our guests are still raving about how it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They did a stellar job at making my wedding day perfect!

We chose The Madison Hotel as our venue based around it's reputable conservatory setting that accomodates between 125-150 people. our party was pretty close to 125, and it was perfect for us. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and professional, and helped us set up all the details for the event with ease. We happened to luck out and get a perfect sunny day with a daytime high temperature of around 80 degrees, which turned into perfect weather for night time dancing on the beautiful marble tile dance floor. We stayed at the hotel from Friday night thru Sunday, moving into the Glen Airlie Suite on the second night. That suite was amazing! Huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, nice fixtures, and a very high class business executive style layout all around. Focusing on the hotel's staff, some of the highlights and reasons I would refer them are as follows:
1)Seemless service took orders and got the food out on time
2)The Maitre D' was very helpful during the reception and went above and beyond to pull a couple extra strings for us
3)The sunset-night setting was surreal for photos with the gorgeous decorations and chandeliers, etc
4)Cost per plate was very reasonable considering the level of service provided and the excellent food and cake. Cocktail hour food was amazing, while dinner was superb, and the cake was well decorated and delicious!

We had our June 1st wedding at the Madison Hotel in the Ballroom, with our cocktail hour in the Victorian Room and Brunch the next day in the Conservatory. We had a fabulous experience working with the Madison Hotel. Charles helped us run our event on the day of and did an unbelievable job helping to keep everything organized and running smoothly. Sara helped us coordinate our beautiful event and was very responsive and professional. The food was fabulous and the bar extremely well stocked. We had over 50 rooms booked for our friends and family - the hotel was very easy to work with for our guests! We were so happy with the Madison and highly recommend it!

My reception was held in The Conservatory at the Madison Hotel on a night when there was a full moon. I have one word for you...AMAZING. As it got darker out and the candles glowed, and the lights were dimmed, it was THE perfect atmosphere and i will never forget it. We worked personally with Sara and she answered all of our questions with patience and professionalism. Working with her made the entire process seamless. Our maitre' d the night of the wedding was Charles...ask for him..he was on top of everything and not a single problem arose. Wish I could do it all over again!

All I can say is WOW! From the very beginning when Sara began showing us around we fell in love with this place. As soon as you walk into the lobby you're greeted by friendly staff in a very warm atmosphere. Once you get to the conservatory room where we had our ceremony you begin to take it all in. Everything in that room looks so beautiful with all of the flowers and decorations that are in there all year round that you only need minimal, if any flowers at all in that room. Our cocktail hour was in the Victorian Suite and we had a large selection of fantastic foods which all remained plentiful and even better, hot until the very end! Once we got into our reception that we had in their ballroom we were amazed at how great the room looked. Again, all the food was hot and delicious and we had many compliments from our guests on that and also how impressive the service was! Sara was so easy and accomodating to work with while planning our wedding from the beginning to end. Everytime that we called her or emailed her with a question she was so polite and friendly that she really made us feel like we were the only ones planning a wedding there in the past 6 months. On our day we had Tim as our Matre'D for the evening and him along with our Captain both made the evening go perfect! Both were so attentive and quick with every single aspect that all of our expectations were exceeded....total professionals at this! Our wedding cake was also made the hotel and it was delicous and looked beautiful as well. Bottom line, if you want a beautiful venue, a huge selection of delicous food and fantastic service that every guest will be talking about, choose The Madison Hotel!

I can't say enough great things about the Madison Hotel, whether it's about the service, food, décor, etc! They exceed in everything when it comes to your event. Our ceremony and reception was held in the beautiful Conservatory and our cocktail hour in the Victorian Suite. The Conservatory is a stunning room, and there was a minimal need for flowers and decorations since it already has flowers that change with the seasons. At night, it takes on a completely different ambience and is beautifully lit. The food at the Madison Hotel is delicious! My guests are still talking about it! The service at the Madison Hotel completely went above and beyond our expectations. Leading up to the wedding, Tim was more than helpful and very responsive to any of our questions. Joe was our Maitre D' for the night and he took excellent care of us. He was constantly checking on my husband and I, making sure we had everything we needed (or wanted), even delivering food to us since we were unable to get to the cocktail hour immediately following the ceremony. Joe was truly instrumental in making our special day a huge success. I would highly recommend the Madison Hotel for any special event!

our daughters wedding was one of the "displaced" jersey shore weddings from hurricane sandy. we found out 3 weeks before the wedding that our venue would not be ready as the electrical system was destroyed in the storm. we had a short time to redo the entire wedding! we contacted the Madison, after being highly recommended there, and from that phone call on our wedding became magical. we met with Joe and he treated us like we were family. he took care of every detail, big and small, that we asked of him and never made us feel like we were bothering him. there was just nothing we threw at him that he didn't take care of! he made suggesgions but took ours seriously. he was wonderful before the reception but absolutely amazing day of the wedding! he took care of our daughter and son in law like they were his best friends!!!!! they wanted for nothing as he thought of everything! the ballroom was GORGEOUS and the entire staff was sooooo friendly and professional. we had 242 people at the wedding and 242 people have done nothing but rave about the Madison hotel since. we had over 150 people stay at the hotel either all weekend or just that night and they ALL said the same thing. that the staff just couldn't be nicer and the place just couldn't be more beautiful. the fireplace was always going and the Christmas decorations were spectacular. the wedding pictures have come out so gorgeous that our photographer even commented on how much of it was due to the venue(and the bride and groom wernt bad!) the honest truth is countless people have told us it was the best wedding they were ever to. and I give joe and his beautiful Madison hotel my gratitude for a lifetime of priceless wedding memories.

Our son and his bride were married at The Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ. The wedding - in fact, the entire weekend - surpassed our expectations in every way.
The Madison is exquisite, providing us with an elegant venue where we were proud to accommodate and entertain our families and friends. We depended on the hotel for all of the events attached to the wedding weekend, from the rehearsal dinner right on through to Sunday breakfast. The ability to take advantage of the hotel’s variety of wonderful rooms, all beautiful and each with a completely different atmosphere, to plan a weekend’s worth of gatherings worked very much to our benefit. What could easily have been stressful and rushed somehow moved smoothly from one event to the next and always felt comfortable, relaxed and easy, for us and for our guests.
The ceremony and reception were held in the Conservatory, which is very highly recommended. This incredible room is strikingly beautiful – our event was romantic, elegant and comfortable.
Probably the most important thing we could say to anyone who is planning such a complicated event is that the staff at the Madison will make it seem easy. All of our needs were met, sometimes before we even knew what they were, by smiling, helpful, highly competent, experienced and professional folks - it would be impossible to praise them too highly.
The food was fantastic. Rod’s Steak & Seafood Grille prepared an amazing spread for the rehearsal dinner, a surprisingly extravagant cocktail hour following the ceremony and a superb reception dinner. The variety was stunning; every meal was a different experience and each one was exceptional. It was our good fortune to be there to enjoy Rod’s Sunday Breakfast Buffet which is truly amazing. It’s been nearly 3 months since the wedding and we still have people tell us that when they get together with other folks who were there, they talk about the food.
The PERFECT wedding thanks to The Madison–VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We had our reception at the madison hotel in november in the ballroom with cocktail hour in the victorian room
We cannot say enough about the madison hotel. We fell in love the moment we stepped into the gorgeous lobby of the hotel, complete with a fireplace and warm decor. The ballroom is absolutely breathtaking, and is far from the typical tacky decor you may find in many other NJ banquet halls. Amidst a hurricane, Tim (director of Catering) was more than accommodating and helped to make our wedding go off without a hitch despite the area not having power for the majority of the week. Our guests have not stopped raving about the food, especially the cocktail hour. The bridal suite was fantastic, and as a bride, I truly appreciated getting to the suite to find my bouquet, our guest book, and gifts all neatly placed in our room. They truly took care of everything. The staff made the night so so smoothly.
We had many of our guests staying from out of town, and they were all very satisfied with their rooms, the booking process, and all of the restaurants located in the hotel. The sunday morning brunch was phenomenal, and the continental breakfast was a great place for our guests to gather the next morning.
Overall, we could not have asked for anything better. Thank you to the madison for making our dream wedding a reality!!

My wedding at the Madison Hotel was a dream come true in the wake of a nightmare. I got married the Friday following Hurricane Sandy and the staff at the Madison made sure that they did everything in their power to make sure my wedding went off without a hitch. Sara in catering was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, she was there to answer any questions I had and was extremely helpful. Our maitre'd Joe was an absolute saint. He took care of every detail that day, I didn't have to worry about a thing. All of my needs and my family's were attended to, he even chased me with food during my cocktail hour to make sure that I had something to eat! Everyone at the hotel was personable, professional and a breeze to deal with. It feels like the family-run hotel that it is, and you feel like family when you're there. The food was fantastic, the guest rooms were beautiful, and I will definitely recommend this establishment to anyone I know that is having a wedding.

We had our ceremony and reception in the conservatory and it was absolutely gorgeous. The Hotel was very accomodating and allowed us to use the little court yard off the Conservatory during cocktail hour. They also set up a beautiful breakfast in the bridal suite for me and my family the morning before the wedding. The food was delicious. Our guests raved about the cocktail hour. Dessert was set up beatifully too, and everyone loved the wafles. As per my request, the bakery replicated a cake that I had seen in a magazine. Everyone was really helpful. Carolina did an amazing job as our Wedding Coordinator. She took care of everything from the moment we booked the venue to the end of the reception when we went to our complementary bridal room. She was professional and always got back to me in less than 24 hours. She also coordinated our vendors and made sure the whole day went flawless. I did not have to worry about one thing the day of the wedding. We had a great experience and would recommend the Madison Hotel to anybody.

We chose The Madison Hotel based on the fact that it was a mix of old fashioned classic hotel for our family to stay the weekend mixed with the beauty of the conservatory for our reception. My wedding weekend was wonderful. The customer service at this place couldn't get any better. Our wedding coordinator Joe Zimmerman made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it and everything went smoothly. My guests were enamored at the spread of amazing food at cocktail hour and our reception looked so beautiful in the conservatory at night. The Madison Hotel made our wedding weekend perfect. I could not ask for more....

My sister had her wedding at the Madison Hotel 15 years ago and it was amazing. It was in the conservatory and I fell in love with it. When I went back in August to look, I fell in love with the hotel all over again. Unfortunately our wedding was too large to have in the Conservatory(200 guests) so we booked the Grand Ball Room. It was soo elegant and tied right into our color scheme of navy blue, gold, silver and cream. It was the most beautiful night!!!! We worked with Sara Maurer and she was excellent!!! We were actually able to have our cocktail hour in the Conservatory. It was the best of both worlds. We also had about 100 guests that stayed at the hotel overnight and have done nothing but rave about it. It was one of the most beautiful places and the staff really takes pride in it!!!! I would have my wedding there all over again if I could!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

The Madison Hotel was a dream location for me. I had my ceremony and reception in the conservatory. All of the rooms at the madison are beautiful but the uniqueness and charm that the conservatory has I could not find any where else. All of the staff from the house keeping to the management were wonderful, very accommodating, friendly and easy to talk to. This was the first location I looked at to have my wedding and I never looked back. The food is fabulous... I actually wish my husband and I had more time to enjoy our food throughout the night. I had my wedding in the winter and I was really hoping for that warm, cozy, romantic feeling and with picking the conservatory I defiantly achieved this.

Tim MacHale was my Maitre d' at my wedding at the Madison Hotel on October 1st. He was very attentive and provided great guidance throughout the whole planning process. On my wedding day, he must have quickly checked in with me four times just to see if there's anything I wanted. My wedding at the Madison Hotel was more than I could have hoped for - everything was executed so perfectly. People LOVED the food (hello Chateaubriand!!) and we specially ordered a chocolate ganache iced chocolate cake that was to die for. Thanks for all the memories Madison Hotel!!

The Madison hotel was the most amazing wedding venue. We worked with Tim and he was great! He was able to provide everything we asked for. Our ceremony and reception were in the Conservatory, which is the most beautiful room for a wedding. The staff was wonderful! Oscar was so attentive and catered to every need. The food was AMAZING! Every guest we spoke to raved about their dinner. The menu catered to everyone...kosher, vegetarian. This hotel has so many areas for photo ops. The place looks amazing in our photos and our video! If you are looking for a romatic venue...this is the place!

Me and my wife got married in the Conservatory at the Madison Hotel. We had a small wedding and most places didnt want to give us the time or day. But Gene and the staff at the Madison treated us like we were having a 200 person affair. They were on top of everything and made us feel like our event was just as important to them as it was to us. The food was excellent but the wait staff was amazing. They were attentive to everyone and our Maître d' Carlos was amazing. We had such a good time and got the most bang for our buck at the Madison.

The food at Madison Hotel was excellent. We had a wide selection for the cocktail hour (including a pasta station, crepe station, etc.), and 3 choices for the seated reception entree (salmon, chicken, steak). The wedding cake was also delicious. We also had the option to add a chocolate fondue fountain, which was a big hit with our guests. The only downside was that as the bride and groom, we didn't get to try everything because we were taking pictures during the cocktail hour. Luckily, the Madison Hotel gave us a discount coupon before our wedding to have a nice dinner at their in-house restaurant Rod's Steakhouse, which was excellent.

I can not even describe how wonderful our wedding was on August 9, 2008. Gene helped us with all the planning beforehand and he was a pleasure to work with. Even when I was very nervous at the end and I felt like he was overly laid back about everything, he was laid back with good reason! They had EVERYTHING under control. The food, service, and atmosphere was superb. I could not believe how they changed the conservatory from a ceremony location into a reception site with so much skill and so quickly! Fred was our maitre'd and he was amazing. He had everything ready for me and our wedding party and he just made us all feel so comfortable. I can not say enough about how beautiful and fabulous this place was. AND THE FOOD! WOW! Nothing like it!!!

The Madison Hotel was the absolute perfect setting for our wedding - we wanted our ceremony and reception to be in one place and each room you went into was very classic looking and kept the party going - we had a lot of compliments on our food and cake. The Madison Hotel has a lot of character - they fulfill every need, very flexible and easy going - anything you asked for - you were able to get. There was a lot of space to work with as well, not to mention the most reasonable out of all the places I checked out.

He customized the menu to meet all our requests, even if they were not initially listed as options. During the wedding, everything went without a hitch thanks to his expertise and wonderful staff. Our family and friends are still raving about the food and the stunning conservatory space. The train station and attached hotel made it incredibly convenient for our out of town family and friends coming in from the city. We did not have to worry about a thing during the entire event.

Carlos was very helpful throughout all the planning and was very responsive and always made me feel relaxed, especially as the day became closer and we were busy (and stressed!) tying up loose ends. The staff was very attentive and EXTREMELY accommodating. I felt as though every time I went there or called with a question I left feeling relaxed and secure in the wedding plans. On the actual day, they were so helpful and always attentive and going above and beyond to ensure that our day ran smoothly. I highly recommend the Madison Hotel for any occasion!

It was so great to have someone help us with all the little details and that he actually wanted to help. I got everything done my way and he did such a great job with the decorating, flower arranging and all the catering details. My wedding was a huge success and my guests are still saying how we had such a beautiful wedding, like a fairy tale.

My daughter's wedding at The Madison Hotel was absolutely perfect. Joe Zimmerman, catering manager/maitre'd was the nicest,most helpful and professional person we could imagine. He made everything go so smoothly. At the reception, we were able to just enjoy ourselves knowing everything would be taken care of, and it was! The food was excellent. Our guest raved about how great the venue and food both were. We had the cocktail hour in the atrium room and it looked beautiful with the ice sculpture all lit up and the passed hors 'doevres (??) were delicious. I would highly recommend having a wedding or party of any type at Madison Hotel. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day.

About 4 years before our wedding, my husband and I attended a wedding at The Madison Hotel and we were in complete awe! The ceremony and reception were held in the Conservatory Room which is basically an Atrium of glass, floor to ceiling. It is absolutely breath-taking! When choosing our own wedding venue, we knew right away we wanted to book our day in the Conservatory at The Madison. The prices are comparable to any well known venue in the area and the food is AMAZING! You really get the option to pick whatever you want in regards to food and service. We dealt with Tim MacHale, wedding coordinator. He is extremely professional and responsive with his services to the bride and groom to be. Any questions we had were answered immediately and any accommodations we requested were honored. Our Maitre D, Joe, was a pleasure to deal with. Though it was hard, he made sure we ate, or at least had a drink in our hands. Our guests all commented on the service of the waiters and the quality of the food. The setting and grounds of the hotel alone is one of a kind. Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be with the extreme help of Tim and The Madison Hotel!

I had my wedding reception at the Madison hotel in the conservatory and could not have been happier with our decision. The room was stunning, the food was delicious, the service was excellent and guests are still complimenting us on the reception 2 weeks later!
I have to say, the staff really knows what they're doing. At times during the planning it felt as though they weren't being flexible, but I trusted them and I'm so happy I did- they know the room and how everything works in there better than anyone! Our Maitre D that night, Joe was fantastic- he was always one step ahead and made my parents and husband and I feel very well taken care of. Sarah was our coordinator and she was absolutely wonderful. I was concerned about having a large band in the room and she actually called another couple who had one for their reception while I was with her so I could hear how they liked it. I do have to say though, it can get really loud with a big band in there.

Overall, our wedding was amazing, they took the best care of us and it was incredibly elegant. Another plus is that the hotel is beautiful, the bridal suite is really large, they give you a hair and makeup room for the day of, and there are 2 great bars where we continued to celebrate after the reception!

For us, the most important things we wants at the reception was good food, plenty to drink, and a lot of dancing- and I can honestly say I wouldn't have changed anything about our wedding. I just want to re-emphasize on how GREAT the food was here. You are really getting amazing quality for what you're paying for!

Hope this was helpful! One more tip, ask your Maitre D to make a plate of appetizers for you and put it in your bridal suite that night- you will be hungry by the end of night!

I had a June wedding in the ballroom and I can not say more wonderful things about the Madison Hotel. I worked with Tim and he ended up being our maitre d that night. This man has wedding planning down to a science. He was amazing and did whatever he could do to make our wedding reception everything I ever hoped it would be. The cocktail hour was very impressive and the food/drink was plentiful and delicious. We did rent gold chiavari chairs to enhance the look of the ballroom and it looked beautiful. I would highly recommend it! We had many out-of-town guests and the hotel was welcoming and friendly. Our guests especially loved the accessibilty to the bar at Rods and the welcoming lobby and courtyards to gather.
The venue was beautiful, the food was delicious, and service was incredible. We are getting constant complements from our guests about how much they loved the Madison Hotel. It's pricey, but you pay for what you get and it was all outstanding. We would HIGHLY recommend thus venue to an bride looking for the wedding of their dreams!

We recently had our wedding reception in the ballroom at the Madison Hotel and it was amazing! Yes, I agree with a few other reviewers in that the staff was sometimes slow at responding to phone calls/emails during planning - but my entire wedding weekend went off without a hitch! They were great with setting up the space with our personal touches and our maitre d, Tim, was fantastic that night! The food was so great - we are still getting rave reviews from our guests! There were plenty of bars set up to avoid long lines and they were fully stocked to quench our guests' thirst ;)

We also hosted a brunch on Sunday morning in the Conservatory - again, this was great and very well organized. We had almost 80 guest rooms booked for the weekend and everyone was impressed overall with the hotel and their services. I would definitely recommend The Madison to any soon-to-be bride and grooms!

The Madison Hotel did an amazing job the day of my wedding. I worked with Tim to work out the contract, and he also wound up being the maitre d' at the event. He was very helpful while working out the contract, and also did a great job the night of the wedding. The only downside is that occasionally he was a little difficult to get in touch with. The food at the Madison was great, everything looked beautiful, the guests enjoyed the option of staying over (and the ones who did loved their rooms), and everything went off without a hitch. The brunch the next day was also fabulous. Definitely would recommend!

We just had the pleasure of our son and daughter-in-law's wedding at the Madison Hotel on 9/24/11. The hotel is charming, the lobby is beautiful! The ceremony was beautifully done in the conservatory. We are still getting raves from friends and family regarding the food both at the cocktail hour, and the reception. The overnight stay was a very comfortable one. Our room was nicely done, very clean, and well supplied with many things one might forget to bring. We were so surprised to find a Keurig coffee maker in the room, what a nice touch!

The entire experience was lovely. BTW, you must be sure to include the mashed potato martini bar in your cocktail hour, that was a very big hit!

The Madison Hotel is an excellent place for a wedding. The staff was wonderful. The quality and quantity of food was amazing. We had the ceremony in the conservatory, cocktail hour in the Victorian Room and the reception in the ballroom. It was the best night.
The only drawback about the Madison is the lack of linen choices. They only supply ivory and if this doesn't match your color scheme, you would need to rent or buy your own linens. (Since our color scheme was black and white - we had to bring in our own black linens).

Overall, we had a great experience at the Madison Hotel.
Our wedding was a blast, the hotel is really charming, the food was amazing! We had a few hiccups, as the person we worked with upon signing the contract later stopped working there, and we felt that we lost some service and communication there, though they did try to accommodate our requests in the long run. We were under the impression that there would only be one wedding at a time, and there were two. It wasn't an issue, just a surprise, and we felt like we'd been a little bit deceived. Again, I think it was mostly the result of working with more than one person over the course of the planning. Not enough of an issue to be at all disappointed with the overall outcome. Food and atmosphere were definitely top-notch!

My husband and I had a mixed experience with The Madison. We were married in the Conservatory and had our reception in the Grand Ballroom. Originally, we were working with Gene in catering, however, 2 months before our wedding, Gene announced his retirement so we were switched to Tim. This was actually a good switch, because we felt more comfortable with Tim. The only problem with working with the catering team there was the responsiveness. It would often take days before phone calls were answered, and emails were hardly ever answered.

However, you never would have known any of this was a problem on the day of the ceremony and reception. Oscar was our Maitre'D and I can't say enough good things about him. First thing in the morning, he came down to get all of the reception accessories, such as the cake knives, toasting glasses, escort cards, etc. and was very prompt in setting them up in a beautiful fashion. He did an excellent job coordinating our entrances and even helping me with my train down the aisle. Finally, he coordinated for our gifts and flowers to be waiting in our suite for the night.

Overall, everyone complimented us on how wonderful everything was. If you're organized and ask the right questions, you can certainly make The Madison work. In the end, everything was absolutely beautiful and extremely well coordinated, despite the lack of responsiveness initially.

We held our reception the beautiful conservatory at the Madison Hotel. The room was gorgeous and their attentiveness to me (the bride) was fantastic. Still, everything was very expensive, as having a wedding anywhere in New Jersey is and I was a little annoyed that they held us to a minimum that we unknowingly set. When we first met to sign the contract, we were asked how many people we expected to have. We responded with 125-150 and ultimately had 121. The hotel put 125 in the contract as our minimum despite the minimum to book the room being 50. This is really my only major complaint. Luckily, they allowed us to use those unused meals toward our vendor meals. I have received nothing but compliments on the beauty of the room and I am thrilled with how the hotel set up all of my items and decorations.

My husband and I had our ceremony & reception in The Conservatory and it was absolutely beautiful.

Carlos our event planner was great but sometimes hard to get a hold of. It was also a bit confusing since we were told by Carlos that a Timothy would be our maître d' but then found out by our DJ right before the ceremony that our maître d' was Oscar. Now Oscar was great and extremely attentive to our needs until we started reaching the end of the night when he became a bit pushy due to the fact that the Ceremony started late due to the terrible weather conditions but they were still pushing to end the party at the time we originally thought it would if we started on time. Oscar was so pushy he even placed himself in front of us while we were cutting the cake so he can hurry us along which resulted him in being in all our photos during the cake cutting. I even found out after the fact that they told my DJ to stop playing music at around midnight when our contract stated that reception would last till 12:30 am and when my husband asked Oscar about it he was told that "they never have wedding's so late" and needed to wrap things up which annoyed us since we wanted our DJ to continue playing music in the background as everyone was leaving so it would have been nice if they talked with us a little more to discuss the plan instead of going straight to our vendor. We were also told that all our custom made items that we had made for the reception would be delivered to our room only to realize the next day that our personalized floor decal was missing. We left a message for Carlos since we paid a great deal of money for the decal and after several days we received a voice mail that the decal was most likely "tossed out"...very sad especially since we gave Oscar a very very very nice tip and he promised that everything would be taken care of. :o( The only thing that did cheer us up was Carlos telling us that he heard our wedding was "The Bomb"!!! Now that comment alone turned our frowns upside down. Kudos to you Carlos! :o)

But overall this place was amazing for the amount of money we spent. Even though there were a few bumps in the road (which is expected when planning such a detailed wedding) we were still completely satisfied with how things turned out. Our guests were happy and the food was delicious. Our cake was perfect and Carlos did make sure that it looked exactly like how we described. The transformation from the ceremony to the reception was flawless and The Victorian Room where the cocktail hour was held was just perfect. And at the end of the night when we went back to our complementary bridal suite we found a bottle of the white wine we were drinking all night waiting for us with two glasses...the perfect touch to end our amazing night. Thumbs up to The Madison Hotel!!! :o)

The wedding venue has the best wedding food I have ever tasted. The room looked spectacular. The only thing I didn't like was our wedding cake was the last thing we did during the night. After the last note of the last song of the night we went to our table to eat a piece of our wedding cake and it was gone. We didn't get to eat our cake at our wedding. I wouldn't be so disappointed if the cake tasted like and average wedding cake. The problem was everyone I talked to loved the cake and thought it was one of the best wedding cakes they ever ate.

Our reception was in the conservatory, which is absolutely beautiful. It looks like a beautiful English garden. Our own decorations were relatively easy and inexpensive as the conservatory is already perfectly decorated. Plus, the food there was excellent. We were allowed to make our own desserts and have them at a dessert table. Of course, we did that as it was cheaper than their dessert table. Everyone remembers our amazing desserts.

We had a good experience with The Madison Hotel. The communication with Sara was smooth through out our experience. The management was great! All of the day time staff was great, however, while we were staying at the hotel, the night staff was very unprofessional. The security the night of our hotel stay was a little intrusive in telling us that we needed to all be in our rooms. The front desk help during the night was very rude and unprofessional to not only ourselves, but our guests. We specified multiple times that our over night bags (gifts) were to be given to "each" guest staying in our block. The staff was only allotting one bag per room, leaving us with a lot of extra and people without their gifts. As an over all experience for our wedding, we enjoyed every moment of that. The food was great, the conservatory looked amazing and all of our guest were accommodated during the reception.

I worked with Sara, who was courteous and professional, as well as extremely personable. I would highly recommend Sara. Our maitre'd was Joe. I've been a part of multiple bridal parties and he was definitely not one I would recommend, as compared to the maitre'd's in other weddings I've been in. He was nowhere to been seen before the wedding-my officiant was more helpful than he was, I don't know what he was doing but he wasn't working with me or my husband. It as almost as if he was rushing-he directed the guys to walk out 5 minutes before we were ready, kept the guests waiting, and I know the videographer missed the guys walking in because they didn't coordinate. Our guests raved about the service overall, and I'm sure the food was excellent (I barely ate. . . ).Overall our wedding was beautiful but I would recommend working with someone else if possible. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the staff is excellent.
