Although we are not booking with Westminster Hotel due to our budget, I just wanted to say that I absolutely loved this venue. I had a wonderful time meeting with Jennifer. She was so nice and really did a great job showing us the hotel. She was very inviting and even bought us a drink at the bar during our tour. If it weren't for financial reasons, we would of definitely chose this as our venue. I would highly recommend speaking with Jennifer if you are interested in having a hotel wedding. Wonderful staff and lovely venue.

Proceed with Caution!
My son got married on June 12th at the Westminster Hotel. Planning a wedding is stressful enough…no one should have to endure the last minute chaos that we did.

To begin, my son and daughter-in-law had three wedding coordinators – the first two were fired and the third was Jennifer, the Director of Catering. While they had been planning an outdoor wedding, the day before they the ceremony they found out that the large, prominent tree – where their wedding ceremony was to take place – was dead! The area looked terrible. I called Matthew Glazier, President of the Glazier Group who manages special events for the Westminster. He was rude and obnoxious. No apologies, just aggression. When I suggested that the Westminster set up a floral canopy or Chuppah away from the dead tree, he said, “If that’s what you want, you’ll have to find it, rent it and have your own people set it up. We won’t help.” Remember, this is the day before the wedding! Then Glazier continued, “Are you one of those out-of-town relatives?”

Bottom line…
While every event has some issues, please take note of the following:

• When arriving at the Westminster, some of our guests were told that there was no wedding at the hotel. Our guests were sent to a different hotel on Route 10. When they returned to the Westminster, the ceremony had already started.

• We ordered a round wedding cake and got a square one.

• Three tables of seating cards were not displayed – 30 guests didn’t know where to sit.

• Our candlesticks and personal decorations had been thrown out without consulting us and all of the personal items in our ladies’ room grooming basket had been given to the staff.

• We ordered an Asian food station for at the cocktail hour but it was not included.

• We were charged $500 to have a plain, white drape set up for the ceremony.

• We were then overcharged $500 for the actual ceremony. It took over two months for them to reimburse us!

What a wonderful experience we had having our Friday, November 13th wedding at westminter hotel. Working with Jennifer was a great experience. She really was able to make our vision of the room and atmosphere come true. When I walked into the ball room the day of reception I was in love. The staff exceeded all of our expectations. Rebecca, my (our) bridal attendant for the day was amazing. She made sure We ate, drank and had a blast. Rebecca met me on the dance floor with drinks, had plates of food at our table and even made us to go bags and delivered them to the room in case we hadn't had enough to eat. After the reception, we made our way to bar and everyone made room for us and treated us with love and much accommodation. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding experience. All of guest are asking to do it all over again!!

Our wedding had many out of town guests arriving and staying for a few days in the area. We were looking for accommodations within a reasonable budget and close enough to our venue where a shuttle service would be provided. We looked at a few options, and chose the Westminster Hotel in Livingston. Their rooms were modern, clean and spacious. Loretta worked with us on our contract and proved to be a very supportive and helpful liaison. The night of our wedding, we chose to sleep at the hotel due to a brunch being conducted in our honor in the area. We were welcomed and put at ease for the evening until we were ready to check out. Thank you guys for helping us relax on the night of our wedding.

I regret ever booking with the Westminster Hotel/ Glazier Group catering. It is a painful experience that I wish I could take back.
1. Coordinator was changed not once but 3 times! Our 1st coordinator was nice, but a few months before the wedding I emailed her only to find out she was no longer with the Westminster. We never received an alert of what was happening instead we had to find out who our new coordinator was. Furthermore, we had to undergo the same process of explaining every detail, food tasting etc.. 3 months before the wedding, same thing, the coordinator was no longer with the Westminster, I had to contact Jennifer Cooper who assured me everything would be ok. It was not.
2. My plan to wed under the gazebo as talked about with the 2 prior coordinators never happened. One day before the wedding I went to the hotel to drop off all of our goodies. There I noticed that the outdoor place where the ceremony was going to take place the tree was dead!!! I was also assured from previous coordinators that the outside bloomed beautifully and there was no need to have an alter. So, there was no plan B for indoor wedding. 3. Although I was assured there was no need to pay for an alter and no plan B. The day before the wedding we had to call a florist to make some “magic” happened. $500.00 which we had to pay. The alter looked terrible, tacky and cheap! We asked for the WM to assume the cost, but instead we got a nasty attitude from Matthew the CEO who told to my mother-in-law “what are you an outside townie coming in and trying to save the day.” We were floored and disgusted with his attitude. At this point we were afraid to say anything else in fear that they would mess up even more our wedding. 5. The testing? Don’t bother, you won’t get the food you actually picked. I asked for the chicken on the bone and asked “will this be the chicken my guest and I will get?” Yes! I was assurBut the chicken was far from what I had in both tastings.

My husband and I got married on April 11, 2015 and our reception was at Westminster Hotel. From the first meeting with Jennifer Cooper , the Director of Catering & Special Event, to booking and scheduling the food tasting, and all the way up to the actual reception, we could not have asked for better service. Jennifer was quick to answer all my emails and she went out of her way to make everything perfect. The entire staff helped us and made our families feel like all they had to do was have a great time. So many of our guests made a point to contact us after the reception to tell us how much they enjoyed the reception and tell us the food was phenomenal, there were so many choices for cocktail hour , and they loved the little things they did such as displaying our pictures on the TV screens in the lobby welcoming everyone. The ballroom is very pretty and spacious. The bartenders and wait staff were very friendly. Needless to say, my husband and I are very happy with our choice of Westminster Hotel and want to take this time to thank you. You and your staff have made this a great experience for all involved.

The Westminster went above and beyond our expectations! Our initial planning began with Amy. A week before the wedding, we were notified that she no longer worked there. We were concerned about what impact that would have on our event. However, once we met Jennifer and she took over, all concerns were put to rest. The entire staff was flexible and accommodating at every turn. A special thanks to Jennifer, Scott and Fanny (I hope I have the names right) for making our special day even more memorable!
