    Such an Amazing Experience !

    Had an amazing site tour experiences with Diana ! Her personality was a huge plus ! She was extremely welcoming to my family and answered all questions we had fantastically. The packages were very detailed and everything was broken down for us. We decided to book with the Elegant Crystal Ballroom at the Radisson Hotel and can't wait for our Big Day in 2022!

    Crystal Ballroom at the Radisson Hotel of Freehold's reply:

    Thank you so much! We can't wait! It has truly been our pleasure and we know your wedding will be as fantastic as you are.

    Fairy Tale come true...

    Emerald Ballroom 1.22.22
    What an amazing team! They gave us our DREAM wedding. Elizabeth (catering director) settled our fears when we came to her with concerns of past negative reviews, she asked us to trust her & the team that they promised everything would be perfect, and it was! Sam the general manager, we feel like her & Marvin (maître d) waited on us hand & foot. We never waited for a drink or food. The food was delicious. The bartenders Chris, Darryl, & Anthony TOP NOTCH so kind and attentive. (After party & night before wedding) What I can tell you honestly the communication was on point. Up until the wedding our point of contact went through like 5 different people before landing on Elizabeth with the change in staff. I laid it all out to Elizabeth and she listened and helped make everything perfect. I came to her that I was worried my overnight guests would be turned away or not enough room, she had Tyler work with me to calm my fears and everything was smooth NO ISSUES! I told Sam & Marvin some issues I thought may arise the day of and they made sure any changes day of came to us as a couple first. We checked in the night before and had zero problems, our guests checked in with no problems. Breakfast the morning after was amazing! French toast sticks are bomb. My ceremony & reception was gorgeous we used Radisson’s centerpieces, most décor, backdrop, linens, and pedestals. We supplied signs for tables and card box, but they have if you need I believe. My advice for couples is bring extension cords, lol we felt there was not enough outlets personally, and no usb ports in rooms. STAY OFF SOCIAL MEDIA! If you have a problem or concern, go to Radisson right away lay it out there. I was horrified at first, but my day turned out perfect! Be open & honest with them and they will be honest with you.

    Employees: Super sweet, caring, attentive, helpful, courteous & receptive.
    Food: All of the food for our wedding was delicious no complaints
    Hotel: Zero issues with check in check out, rooms were clean, no issues.
    Communication: no issues, I felt we were responded to in a timely manner

    Words cannot describe the venue enough Joe & I are so happy! The feeling we got when we first booked is what we ended our wedding with.
    Elizabeth, Sam, Tyler, Marvin, Chris, Darryl, Anthony, & the front desk staff you have all made our wedding a dream come true thank you so much for everything we appreciate you all so much.

    Crystal Ballroom at the Radisson Hotel of Freehold's reply:

    This means so much to us! Thank you, thank you, thank you from the whole team at Radisson Freehold! We so enjoyed being a part of your special day.

Jess Abrams, Banquet Manager, joined the Hotels Unlimited team in 2021. She was a teacher for 10 years before moving into sales and banquet management. She loves cooking, event planning, and helping people make their big day as special as possible. Jess will never forget how amazing her Maître D’ was when she got married (fun fact – her wife also works in the Hotels Unlimited family!) and she hopes to bring that same level of comfort, calm, and care to Windsor Ballroom couples so their big day can be just as amazing. Jess is also an active musician who has traveled the world on tour, and when she’s home she loves spending time with her dogs and her thriving vegetable garden. Her advice for event planners? “Take a moment in the reception to just stand back with your new spouse and look around the room. Look at all the people there to celebrate you and your love. That, for me, was the best moment.”
