At W Hoboken couples will discover luxurious, modern spaces ready to transform into any couple's wedding vision. Own the moment in our brightly lit Great Room with 19-foot ceilings and a wall of glass windows. Soak in the scene in LULU’s, which includes an indoor lounge and breezy outdoor terrace overlooking the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.

While the venue sets the stage, our tenured banquet server team and dedicated meeting & events managers are ready and able to take your special day from ordinary to extraordinary.

Couples will revel in the ease of transportation to nearby cities, as W Hoboken is only 10 minutes from Jersey City and 1 stop away from Manhattan via PATH Train or NY Waterway Ferry.

Facilities and Capacity

W Hoboken is equipped to host a ceremony or reception of any size – whether you’re planning an intimate party for 20 or blowout reception for 230.

Discover our most popular wedding venue - the Great Room - where a wall of windows let in the bright, natural light of the outdoors and when the sun sets transforms into a flickering wall of candles. The 19-foot ceilings and skylights work in conjuction with the modern carpeting to make any couple’s wedding feel larger than life.

Though traditionally used for receptions, the Great Room is also ideal for large ceremonies and provides a romantic, lightfilled venue. Couples are welcome to host both their ceremony and reception in the Great Room and are invited to host a post-reception cocktail hour in LULU’s while the space is being transformed

Lulu’s Outdoor Terrace is also a dreamy ceremony location, with views of the New York City skyline from every angle. The terrace has a modern and eclectic bar setup, with unique accents like market string lights and vertical green subway tiles to add a vibrant touch to the evening. Likewise, LULU’s indoor lounge is the perfect backdrop to a smaller reception or ceremony with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Manhattan skyline and one-of-a-kind features like a pool table room, modern artwork and playfully mismatched furniture.

    We love this hotel and stay there frequently even though we live in the area. My husband proposed in this hotel. It was almost a foregone conclusion that we would marry in this hotel. Its a very popular hotel for weddings because its beautiful, convenient, reasonably priced, completely full service, close to EWR and one stop on the train from NYC. The view of New York City must be seen to be believed, certainly better than almost any view from within the city.

    Janell was our event planner and she was fantastic. She would respond promptly to our emails and phone calls at most any hour of the day or night. She was very organized and helped us deal with all of the rooms including some really pesky last minute (literally) changes. She helped us with some of the printing and she let us ship packages to her direct from Etsy or wherever.

    Her in-depth knowledge though of how to make the W work efficiently though was where she really came into her own. She knew how to time everything so the toasts and the musical breaks and the cake cutting and the food ordering and the times to move people into the ceremony and then into the reception and how long the florists would need to transfer the flowers and everything was where her expertise really shone through. She worked with our incredibly complex spreadsheets and our ever changing seating plans. She knew all the vendors and their relationships were smooth and respectful. While the festivities were going on she decorated our room with balloons and pictures from our engagement photos.

    Also of mention were the excellent servers especially Monique who is a consummate professional in every way. She was so attentive and so sweet and caring and always checking up on us and ensuring everything was going as planned. We really would've rather had her in the ceremony to hold our hands and tell us everything was going to work out fine there too.

    We love this hotel in general but for our wedding it was perfect.

    We loved everything about our reception coordinator, Gina, head server Monique and all the W had to offer. Our setup was to die for, as was the food and attentive service. We were treated like royalty and the complimentary suite they gave us was nothing short of a dream. Get the cake through Palermo's (not Carlo's), which is included, and do the full candle wall! We also got embroidered bath robes, slippers, macaroons to die for, a tray of pastries and slices of cake, along with wine and beer, left in our suite at the end of the night. They also prepared 2 "to go" meals. I can't sing enough praises about this place and want to come re-visit for every anniversary.
