The Grand Summit Hotel continues to put high level service and attention to detail at the front and center of everything they do when it comes to meetings and events.
“Our customers like the fact that the intimacy of the hotel allows a good size meeting to literally take over the lion’s share of meeting space the hotel has to offer” says Assistant General Manager Michael Marino.
Unlike their colleagues in the brand hotels, The Grand Summit works extremely hard to ensure their corporate customers are the focus of the staff when programs are hosted at the property.
The Grand Summit Hotel boasts one of the state’s most impressive addresses, home to some of country’s most successful citizens both public and private. “Many people don’t know a lot about the town of Summit, and our customers like that they can host a meeting steps from one of the country’s most vibrant downtowns without the glare or distractions of a New York, Miami, or Las Vegas” adds Marino.
Heading into the summer months, the hotel is running a host of exciting special offers to attract corporate business to the town that really quiets down when local residents head out to summer locales.
With old world charm and elegance continuing to be the hotel’s calling card, the culinary staff revels in the opportunity to make changes to the menus that move with the always changing food and beverage trends. “There has been a huge change in the way people eat over the past couple of years, and we have worked tirelessly to introduce food and beverage offerings that work with today’s health and budget concise guests,” said Director of Catering Jimmy Thornton a past Chairman of the New Jersey Restaurant Association.
“Some of the most popular culinary choices we are seeing currently include French Toast Lollipops, Smoothie Shots, the East/West Buffet with Bo Ssam Pork and the Sandwich Grinder Station,” offers Banquet Manager Kathy Obropta. Kathy stays involved from planning through the close of the event to ensure a smooth flow to the program. “We are catering to seasoned executives and meeting and event planners who while they know what they want, are often very open to hearing what new items we have introduced as part of our food and beverage offerings” adds Obropta.
Among the reasons the hotel has remained the premier choice in the area for events includes the prestige of the Summit address. The town remains one of the most desirable in the country, and the hotel sits walking distance from the vibrant downtown with direct train service to midtown Manhattan, over 40 restaurants and bars, and high-end shopping.
Combine that with hotel accommodations on site including 19 suites of varying styles, the HAT Tavern -- one of the area’s most popular bars -- on the hotel premise, and complimentary passes to Equinox considered to be the area’s most sophisticated sports club and spa, and it’s easy to see why The Grand Summit is the ideal spot for intimate and large corporate events.
