Reviews We Love

  • Sydney and her team from the Radisson hotel were extraordinary throughout the entire process! They made our dream wedding come true and stress free. They answer your questions quickly, recommend fantastic vendors, and they make your ideas into a reality. We had multiple people traveling from out of town and the hotel staff made accommodations easy for everyone. All of our guests were pleased with the entire night! Thanks a million!

    — Joanna and Antwarn, July 2017
  • It was wonderful experience all the way through! Everyone in the office was a pleasure to work with and always answered any questions I had in a timely and efficient manner. My fiance and I do not reside in New Jersey, but this was no issue as the communication with the Radisson was effective and consistent. They always provide reminders and really help create an event that meets or exceeds expectation! Thank you Sydney, Lauren, and the rest of the team for providing me and my fiance a wedding to remember!

    — Dana, June 2017, Wedding
  • Our experience with this venue is beyond words. From the start Sydney, Lauren, and Ashley were nothing short of spectacular. They were very attentive, answered all emails promptly (usually within a few hours!) which was extremely important to me. We felt very comfortable asking them questions as their responses were always friendly and professional. Our wedding was everything we hoped for and more and it is because of all of the sweet, caring people who work at this venue.

    — Jennifer, December 2016
  • There aren’t enough wonderful words to say about how perfect our wedding day was on 7/17/16. Sydney and Lauren were beyond amazing throughout the entire wedding planning process. They were there to answer all of our questions with certainty, clarity, and speed! Sue was so helpful giving her opinion when I asked and giving me honest answers. On the wedding day, we were blown away with how beautifully the room was set up. It was truly more gorgeous than we had envisioned and it was because of the amazing ladies who helped bring my ideas to fruition! The overall experience was just perfect, and we are so sad that the day is over, but we will always cherish the memories from our picture perfect wedding. We HIGHLY recommend selecting the Crystal Ballroom for your wedding day.

    — Amy + David, July 2016 Wedding
  • My husband and I were so happy with the Crystal Ballroom! Not only is the venue gorgeous, but the service is over the top!!! They go above and beyond for you to make your wedding experience as stress-free as possible! I highly recommend them! Sydney and Lauren were awesome to work with. They made everything so much fun!

    — Heather, Freehold, July 2016 Wedding
  • Sydney, Melissa, and Ashley from the catering office were also outstanding! Every detail was perfect and our guests are still raving about the venue – how beautiful everything was, how well timed and organized the entire event was from beginning to end, the amazing food, and beautiful ceremony set up. Sue, our maitre’d was AMAZING. Every single detail, every decoration, every menu item was PERFECT. I cannot even state in words how thankful I am to the staff of this venue.

    — Kim, March 2016
  • I was very much impressed, as were my guests due to the countless amounts of compliments I received. Not only was the venue beautiful, but the staff made the event flow seamlessly. The event could not have taken place without the immense help and dedication from the catering staff. Any questions I had, they were always quick to answer, any doubts or nervousness I felt, they squashed it right away, and I felt calm and confident going into the day of. I cannot thank them enough for helping make my day as wonderful and special as it was. I truly felt like a princess and would not change anything about that day!

    — Andrea + Kevin, August 2015
  • Every time I saw them they just wanted to make sure I was happy. All I had to think about on my wedding day was that my dress was on, hair and makeup were done. Everything else from rounding up my bridal party, flowers, centerpieces, rings, seating chart, additional guests, EVERYTHING was taken care of by their staff.

    — Bride + Groom, June 2015
  • Everything was elegant and above our standards. The royalty service that we received allowed us to see why The Knot considered this venue the best for weddings. I attended my friend’s reception here a few years ago and was impressed, but being on the other side as the bride, I was taken away. Having the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in one location was convenient for our out of town travelers. Our guests kept saying that they never have attended a wedding like ours!

    — Nadirah, July 2015
  • The entire staff were just amazing to work with, they made the whole experience very personal! They are there with you every step of the way through your ceremony, and it’s so important that you trust the people you are working with when planning a wedding, and I had no doubt the Catering crew had our best interest in mind at all times! We trusted them completely throughout the whole process!

    — Casey, May 2015
  • These three women, Andrea, Sydney, and Judy, will treat the bride like one of their best pals and make sure she has everything she could dream of. They went out of their way to make special time to meet with me. They honored their word at every turn, and they were selflessly available whenever I needed them.

    — Stephanie, March 2015
  • They made wedding planning a pleasure, and I wish I hadn’t worried so much because they took care of everything! I truly enjoyed working with each and every one of them and now that the wedding is over I will miss them terribly as I consider them to be my friends! They made our wedding even more memorable!

    — Gina, December 2014
  • I am so happy we decided to have our wedding at the Radisson of Freehold in the Crystal Ballroom. Tara, Sydney, & Andrea (the girls who helped me organize my wedding) were extraordinary. They never left me hanging with a email or phone call. They cut the stress of planning a wedding in half.

    — Laura Rose, October 2014
  • What an unbelievable time!! My wedding was beyond my wildest dreams. The staff Andrea, Tara, and Sydney were great to work with and made the planning easy. Thanks girls!!

    — Lauren, October 2014
  • The team at the Radisson Hotel are top notch! All the girls in the catering office were extremely helpful the whole way through, and it was amazingly easy to plan this wedding with their help.

    This was a great venue. Everyone had SO much fun, the food was actually great, and it was overall a perfect experience.

    — Michelle, August 2014
  • Hands down the best decision I made for the wedding was choosing the Crystal Ballroom at the Radisson Hotel in Freehold, NJ! All of the staff is absolutely amazing, they make you feel so comfortable and worry free and accommodated me every way possible.

    — Mr. + Mrs. McGotty, August 2014
  • They took their time with every detail and never made us feel foolish for any questions (which we had a lot) we had to ask them. They were extremely flexible to our needs. They always made us feel special and were excited to see us! The day of the wedding, everyone raved how beautiful the room was and that the food was delicious!

    — Christina, May 2014
  • Our experience at the Radisson was truly incredible. As a mother of the groom who was very involved in the planning of my son and daughter-in-law’s April 2014 wedding in the Crystal Ballroom, I was very impressed by the level of service that was provided to us from beginning to end.

    — Amy, April 2014
  • The absolute second my husband and I walked into the Crystal Ballroom, we knew that it was where we wanted to spend our wedding day. Everything about the ballroom was absolutely breathtaking. The chandeliers were gorgeous and the location was perfect.

    — Kristina, April 2014
  • The cocktail hour was extravagant. People could not stop talking about how much and how good the food was. The night of the wedding the staff is so attentive to the bride and groom, you won’t have to worry about anything! The venue is beautiful and well kept and your guests will think you paid a fortune.

    — Leslie, April 2014, Jackson, NJ
  • I say this in all honesty, my husband and I had absolutely no worries that everything was going to be great considering our experience prior to the event. Attention to detail was outstanding! I would recommend the Crystal Ballroom to anyone and everyone who wanted a high quality and classy event without breaking the budget. We got more than what we paid for in service for sure.

    — Cathy, December 2013
  • Perfect place for a wedding! Amazing food – best food I have ever had for a wedding. Thanks for Tara and Andrea. It was a pleasure working with them. Our party was amazing on our very special day.

    — December 2013
  • I cannot thank the ballroom enough for their fantastic service – we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day!

    — February 2013
  • I worked with them for over a year and I can honestly say that I will miss them. For the past year, I felt like I was their only bride and I know that is definitely not true! They are so attentive and by the day of my wedding, I almost felt like I was home which made me realize that I definitely made the right choice.

    — Christine, February 2013, Freehold, NJ
  • The venue itself is absolutely beautiful– modern and elegant. The pictures online do not due the space justice.  It is beautiful.
