Take a tour of the Hotel by June 30 and receive preferred pricing for your wedding or large social event. The Grand Summit Hotel has rolled out Spring/Summer savings with packages beginning at $99 per plate for select dates. This represents significant savings for one of the area’s most iconic venues with its impressive cocktail buffets and gourmet entrees.  

Spring and summer weddings have always been a fashionable time for brides and grooms. The fresh air of spring and summer bring on a feeling of falling in love, nature coming to life and giving all a new perspective. You can create an outdoor scene in our Grand Ballroom and remain cool indoors while dancing the night away.

It’s all about your preference.

Our Grand Ballroom with state of the art sound and light lends itself to the ambiance of your choice whether it is rustic, vintage, pure romance, dramatic or whimsical.  Each season presents so much to offer and so many ideas and fun things to put together.

“One of the latest trends we are seeing is to personalize a wedding with ideas that are specific to the bride and groom,” says long time Director of Catering Jimmy Thornton. Pinterest is a great way to do this. Couples can find inexpensive ideas on the site. The warm and welcoming feeling of the hotel’s lobby creates an ideal setting where guests will decorate the lobby’s fireplace mantel with family photos including those from the wedding days of parents and relatives. This is a great backdrop to the start of the event.

With Craft Beer and infused cocktails remaining an important part of the millennial celebration, having one of the area’s hottest tavern’s and lobby coffee bar within the building creates a venue for pre and post celebration that will ensure a good time is had by all.

“Our clients like that we cater to one wedding or Bar Mitzvah at a times” adds Assistant Director of Catering Teresa Garcia. “With many venues in the area catering to multiple events at a time, it is something that sets us apart from our competition. Call Jimmy Thornton or Teresa Garcia today to learn how you can take advantage of great rates at one of New Jersey’s most prestigious addresses.

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
