Once the calendar turns to fall, the ambience and feel of The Grand Summit Hotel hits its stride. From the moment you walk into the hotel lobby, you know you have entered a piece of history complete with wood beamed vaulted ceilings, and a large stone fireplace at its center.

When we think of the holidays, our memories take us to classic settings, and The Grand Summit Hotel captures the look and feel of the good old days at a time of year very important to a lot of Americans.

For the second time in as many years, the venerable hotel is opening its banquet space for the classic American holiday historically hosted in the HAT Tavern and before it The Hunt Club Restaurant. The Easter and Mother’s Day holidays have long been a staple for the lavish buffet Chef Charles Burke and his team produce in the hotel’s classic Grand Ballroom. For just the second time since 1994, the buffet will return to the hotel’s main floor with all the trimmings the culinary team has built a reputation on.

“Our customers have been telling us that they wanted us to host a similar holiday buffet to those we do for Easter and Mother’s Day” says Assistant General Manager Jimmy Thornton. “The hotel shows beautifully this time of year, and there is no better time to be in the leafy suburbs of Summit.”

The 2017 menu will not disappoint and the menu currently visible on the hotel’s website includes the following:

Not to be outdone completely, he HAT Tavern will be open for business as usual. The HAT will see its normal all day and evening business hours with a host of Thanksgiving-themed offerings. “We will appeal to the guest that wants to go out for the holiday without the formal trappings of a traditional Thanksgiving holiday,” says HAT General Manager Walter Curtis. Once the Tavern became among the area’s most popular casual dining spaces, the look and feel took on a more informal vibe. “We will cater to the crowd that wants to take in the game and enjoy a craft beer with great food,” adds Curtis.

And don’t forget about Thanksgiving Eve. The 'unofficial biggest party night of the year' has made 'The HAT' the place to be and be seen when meeting up with friends and relatives in town for the holidays. Need a room for family or friends over the holidays? Book it now at the hotel as it is one of the busiest weeks of the year at the area’s historic hotel.

With 149 guest accommodations and over 10,000 square feet of recently-renovated event space, The Grand Summit Hotel -- the shining star in the town of Summit -- remains one of the area’s most prestigious addresses for social and corporate events.

The hotel’s culinary reputation is unmatched in the area and has been extended to the wildly popular HAT Tavern in the hotel’s lower level. The management team built on this success recently with the grand opening of the Arts and Crafts Lobby Bar serving private label coffee and espresso, Ironbound Nitro Brewed Iced Coffee, a selection of hard to find craft beers, and wine.

The Grand Summit Hotel is located at 570 Springfield Avenue in Summit, New Jersey 07901. For more information call the hotel at 908-273-3000 or visit our website at grandsummit.com.

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
