Nicotra’s Ballroom is an elegant wedding venue located in the Hilton Garden Inn Staten Island in New York City. The venue offers multiple Italian-inspired function rooms that provide beautiful backdrops for weddings. Situated less than 20 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport, this space offers couples and their guests luxury and convenience.

Facilities and Capacity

This venue has several stunning ballrooms of varying sizes. Each is opulently decorated in vibrant tones with gold accents, including intricate gold leaf ceilings. They feature large windows that offer views of the property’s forests. Two covered gardens also serve as enchanting wedding locales. Trevi Garden, the larger of the two, is reminiscent of the streets of an Italian city, with cobblestone floors and lampposts imported directly from Venice. This function room has draped ceilings and a spacious dance floor at its center. The Asian-inspired Tea House Garden is accented with rich red shades and hanging lanterns. Its glass ceiling lets in plenty of natural light, and an adjacent outdoor area with a koi pond and pagoda completes the atmosphere. Additionally, the venue’s outdoor garden is an ideal spot for ceremonies or wedding photos. At the heart of the garden, a white gazebo sent from Florence serves as an idyllic setting to recite your vows.

Services Offered

The staff at Nicotra’s Ballroom are highly trained and attentive, and they strive to give every couple their dream wedding. Those who book the venue for their special day will be assigned a professional event planner who can offer guidance with all the details. They have a list of preferred vendors to choose from, relieving some of the stress of wedding coordination. This venue also caters to rehearsal dinners and farewell brunches. Guests from out of town can choose to stay in the Hilton Garden Inn for convenience. They offer a complimentary shuttle bus to Newark Liberty International Airport and the Staten Island Ferry, making city amenities easily accessible. The events team at this venue is happy to help with anything they can to ensure your wedding is the happiest day of your life.

    Beautiful Venue, Amazing Experience

    Let's face it, the venue can make or break your whole wedding so there's a lot riding on this decision. Nicotra's Ballroom has everything - beautiful grounds for a romantic ceremony and pictures ✔, amazing room for your reception ✔, part of a hotel so you and your guests just have to go upstairs at the end of the night ✔, delicious food ✔, the best, most attentive staff in the industry ✔✔✔
    From the minute we first walked into Nicotra's Ballroom we felt welcomed and at home. Then we met our coordinator, Jennifer Finch, and immediately felt like we were old friends and knew we were in good hands.  Every step of the way, Jenn was there for us, answering questions, providing guidance and always making us feel as though we were the only couple she was planning an event for. Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more! Our guests couldn't stop telling us how beautiful everything was and how delicious the food was. At a time when so many businesses were hurting, Nicotra's was acommodating and easy to work with when we had to postpone last year due to COVID.
    But the thing that sets Nicotra's apart from all the rest is the staff. It starts at the top. Mr. & Mrs. Nicotra are very involved and want to make sure that everyone has the best experience possible, which we did. Jenn and Sue, our bridal attendant, spoiled us, treated us like royalty and wouldn't let us a do a thing. They handled every little detail no matter how small so we didn't have to worry about a thing and could relax and truly enjoy our day. I could go on and on about all the wonderful things about Nicotra's but just trust me, book Nicotra's Ballroom. It was the best decision we made!!

    We highly recommend having your wedding at Nictora's Ballroom!

    It was so wonderful to have our wedding at Nicotra's Ballroom! We had our reception at the Trevi Garden and loved the setup of that room. Plus it was really convenient to have the venue be part of the Hilton, so that our out of town guests could stay at the hotel on site. And needless to mention it was nice from a getting ready standpoint that we could get ready upstairs and then head straight to photos at the venue. Our planner was Jenn and she was great to work with! She was patient, very thorough and kept us on track on what we needed to do. We especially liked the generous tasting and our sit down session with Jenn where she provided lots of useful tips. In general, we asked a lot of questions and Jenn had all of the answers. Even with a hurricane potentially crashing our wedding, Jenn came up with timely suggestions and helped us think through our options and what changes to make. Overall, the wedding we had was spectacular! Everything was set up in such a pretty way and our guests raved about how good the food was. The bridal attendant Jackie and the maitre d' Tom did a great job in ensuring everything ran smoothly. We highly recommend having your wedding at Nictora's Ballroom!

    Trevi-ballroom Reception: romantic

    Our wedding reception at the Trevi Garden ballroom was held here in May 2019. I chose the Trevi because I like high ceilings with curtain drapery, resembling an indoor tent. The included catering service was terrific as our wedding guests only had compliments on the quality of the food! Sue, the coordinator at the Hilton was a pleasure to work with-upbeat, direct and organized. We had a 9-piece band play, as well, in which a stage was provided at no extra cost by Sue. The elegant lamposts, the statues and fountain within the venue offered a classic theme. The lobby of the Hilton hotel was impressive and elegant too! I got a bridal suite for my party and stayed overnight after the wedding too. The bridal suite was large in space that it accommodated my bridesmaids, hair & makeup, photographer & videography crew! Uplighting along the walls was included, we chose amber and it offered a romantic feed. Highly recommended holding a wedding here.
