This past September, we booked our wedding block at The Westin Governor Morris, and we're so glad we did! Highly, highly recommend for other Jersey couples. Here are a few reasons why:

- The rooms were clean, comfortable, and VERY reasonably priced - definitely something of huge importance as we wanted to take our wedding guests' budgets into consideration
- The Presidential Suite where we stayed on our wedding night is BEYOND gorgeous and so spacious - the perfect place for me to get ready with my bridal party!
- Beautiful hotel lobby, which made for a great backdrop for some pre-wedding photos
- A completely professional, attentive, and helpful staff; we worked with Kelly, who was always more than helpful and quick to respond to our emails

And if these reasons aren't appealing enough, transportation for hotel guests to and from the venue was complimentary - a perk I didn't find at any other hotels when doing my research.

Bottom line: if you're looking to book a wedding block for a North Jersey wedding, the Westin Governor Morris is the place to do it!

The Westin Governor Morris was an amazing venue for my wedding. Julie Olsen, in charge of catering, was with us every step of the way. She was always available to answer questions and make sure that everything was absolutely perfect. Our ceremony was held outside next door at Acorn Hall, which was just a beautiful location. I loved that there was a contingency plan of having the ceremony in a small ballroom if the weather wasn't perfect. All of my other vendors had no problems working with the Westin - all deliveries were coordinated without me having to act as a middleman.

Kelly Bartolome worked with our room block. We had a lot of rooms due to many out of town guests, and everything was great. They set aside rooms on the second floor for us because we had families with small children that wanted to be near the reception site - this was no problem for the Westin.

During the reception, our maître d was Pedro. He anticipated what my husband and I needed and was always making sure we had something to eat or drink. During our Viennese hour, he and another waitress brought a sample of all the pastries to our table for us! The food was delicious, and all the decor was elegant. Honestly, we had no concerns or problems with the Westin during our planning and the wedding itself. Everything was amazing, and I will continue to recommend it to others!

Just recently got married at the Westin Governor and it was simply amazing. The venue is gorgeous ... We had both the ceremony and reception there and it all went so smoothly and exactly as planned. Julie Olsen was so wonderful to work with and made our day so special. I will miss working with her! I would highly recommend this venue especially if you are looking for a place to host the ceremony as well. Many hotel venues have a conference room feel and this hotel does not at all. They only host one wedding at a time as well. All of our guests keep telling us how beautiful this venue was. We couldn't be happier. Thank you again Julie!

Also a big shout out to Pedro who was by my side the entire night making sure everything was perfect and I was okay. He was the best! Thank you Pedro!

Julie and Pedro were incredible and this is not to say that the others involved at the Westin (whose names I can't remember!) didn't contribute to making this the best day of my life. Having Julie there for us (even through her pregnancy) made us feel like we were taken care of from the first moment we met with her. This was important to us as it is not just the actual day that we want perfect but all the careful planning leading up to it. She had such a calm and centered demeanor that really put myself and my family at ease. Pedro, the maitre'd, was as attentive as they come on the day of. He had drinks at the ready and plates of food set up at our tables (we opted for a buffet) that went uneaten as we were having such a good time! Since everything ran so smoothly, we were able to focus on our guests and all the fun we were meant to have. We felt as though we were the only couple scheduled for an event at the Westin this year- it felt that special. Highly recommend this vendor!

The Westin Governor Morris is an absolutely outstanding and hotel. We stayed there for a week in August for our son’s wedding (held at a nearby venue) and arranged the block of rooms for our wedding guests at the hotel. The rooms and lobby are all very modern and beautifully done. I can’t praise highly enough the incredible service we received while organising the wedding block from Christina and the Westin Staff. It was always a pleasure to work with Christina and she made arranging everything completely stress-free – she is very detailed orientated and was on top of everything and very quick to respond to any query. We had about 30 rooms in our block and organized a pre-wedding lunch at the hotel. Our guests loved the hotel and its warm and friendly service and the lunch in their State Ballroom, organized by Tina, was amazing. We booked our event shuttles through the hotel and the service was flawless. Every request however small or big was dealt with a smile and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone whether for a stay or a wedding.

Our wedding reception was held at the Westin Governor Morris on May 18th and they did a fantastic job! The food was plentiful and really terrific, all of our guests were very pleased with the cocktail hour food selections as well at the dinner! The hardest part was selecting the menu during the tasting because everything we tasted was really great! Julie did an amazing job with the planning of the event, she really helped out with making decisions easy as she had a lot of spot-on recommendations. The night of the wedding Pedro and the entire staff did a tremendous job ensuring everything went smoothly and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend having a wedding reception here as the venue is very classic and elegant, the food is amazing, the ballroom is very large but not overwhelming, the lighting is great and the in-house lighting folks did a great job (and the cost for that was reasonable), the hotel rooms are very clean and having a wedding in a hotel is convenient for guests. I was planning on taking wedding photos outside next door to the Westin at beautiful Acorn Hall, but due to weather, we had to take pictures indoors, however the hotel lobby is very pretty and since it has beautiful natural lighting, the pictures came out great! There is also a wine room which also looks great in pictures! Also, the Westin offers Starwood Rewards points for every dollar spent at their hotels, by having the wedding there, we were able to earn enough points for a free honeymoon in the Virgin Islands! If I had to do the wedding all over again, I would still have it at the Westin Governor Morris - it was that good!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Westin Governor Morris last month, and cannot say enough good things. We worked with Carrie Sinnott, who was absolutely wonderful. She was knowledgeable, professional, warm, and was very quick to respond to my many emails and phone calls throughout the entire planning process.
Our family and friends are still raving about how good (and abundant) the food was, and many of them have told us that it was one of the best weddings they've ever attended.
We also held the after party at the Blue Morel which is located in the Westin. With plenty of space and a gorgeous atmosphere, it made for a wonderful and convenient after party.
Thank you to Carrie, Pedro, Christina, and the entire Governor Morris team! You gave us a night we'll never forget!

Love,
Stephanie & Sean Harvey

We used this hotel for our family and friends after our wedding at the Crystal Plaza on 3/1/13 and they were AMAZING! Christina Rodriquez was a DREAM to work with. She was very professional and accomodating to not only myself and my husband, but to all of our friends and family members. She responds promptly to your emails/phone calls and goes ABOVE AND BEYOND to satisfy her clients. The hotel provided a shuttle bus to all our guests that were staying at the Westin of Governor Morris to and from the Crystal Plaza and this service was outstanding! The shuttle buses were clean and efficient and they made sure to have enough buses for all of our guests to be transported comfortably from the hotel to the Crystal Plaza and back to the hotel at the end of the night. Safe transportation for our family and friends after our Irish Wedding was a huge concern of mine and the Westin of Governor Morrs exceeded my expectations with their attention to detail.
Our guests are still raving about the service they received (the staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable) and all have commented that it was the best hotel they have ever stayed at for a wedding! In fact, some are even considering purchasing the heavenly bed after sleeping so peacefully the night of our wedding and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the double shower heads installed in each room. I would highly recommend this hotel to any bride/groom that is looking for a fabulous hotel for their guests to stay at. You will not be disappointed with the amazing service provided at this respectable hotel and your guests will thank you for your hotel selection the next morning.
