Positive with some minor issues
Everything was absolutely beautiful and they did a wonderful job!! They always helped us out and made sure day of we were taken care of. I was a little upset that our guests where told they were no more rooms in our block when we had 50 rooms blocked and only 42 were used. Then one of our guests stayed in an area of the hotel that was not yet renovated and a little sketchy and they never showed us that part. It was so embarrassing when I found out and found out 5 of our guests stayed at another hotel because they were told no more rooms. They also did not allow any guests do early check in when they told us they would make it happen. People who were promised early check in went there first and were not able to check in Because they over booked the night before. To me that is not my fault. We had a 50 room block. Those rooms should have been for us and not for other guests. Other than those issues everything was great. Cologne was absolutely so helpful and great day of!!Sent on 07/01/2019

Great Wedding room block hotel and next morning breakfast
I recommend this hotel for sure for your room block. They gave me a hotel block and we ended up going over that number and they were cool with that. I never had to guarantee anything. I mostly picked here because their suite would fit my large bridal party to get ready in. The suites are perfect! I also got one free night for my suite for guests booking in the block. And we got their hotel shuttles for free which was super helpful. We also used their shuttles for the rehearsal dinner but paid a small fee for them then. We also had breakfast for everyone in the hotel the morning after the wedding and it was really good! I heard a few annoying check-in issues from guests and I had to constantly get updates from the hotel leading up to the wedding date because of communication issues/confusion, but nothing major. So as long as you're on top of everything I think this is a great hotel since it wasn't crazy expensive for guests either and everyone seemed to enjoy their stay including myself!Sent on 11/06/2018

We had some of our out of town guests stay here for our wedding, which was in West Orange. They all raved about their stay and said it was very comfortable and convenient.Sent on 02/25/2017

The Westminster has served as the perfect venue for many of our clients including our couple Nancy and Rafael's "Hollywood Glamour" themed wedding. The staff at this New Jersey four diamond hotel is extremely friendly and accommodating, and they are very helpful in making any event a great success. The food and cocktails available are excellent. We highly recommend this location as a place to host your next fantastic wedding or event.
