We cannot thank Michael Marino, Asst. Mgr. enough for making our stay as pleasant as possible during a difficult time for our family. We were in the area to attend a funeral and in need of a handicapped room. Tough to find that kind of room mid week, last minute, in this area. Michael made it happen! The Grand Summit... More

My client unexpectedly extended my on site visit by an extra day. The only available accommodations were here and the only rooms available were the Presidential Suites. This was a business trip and though the WiFi was free, it was unsecured and anywhere in the room it was only 1 to 2 bars - absolutely insufficient for even checking/sending email,... More

We got married at the Grand Summit on Sunday, June 7th. It was magical. Here's why. Jimmy Thornton: From the first minute we met Jimmy we loved him. He's a total pro who takes tremendous pride in his work and staff. I had originally ruled out the Grand Summit because I didn't want a traditional ballroom wedding. My husband thought... More

Had to find a hotel in a hurray. While I was checking the internet for hotels, my son-in-law made reservations at the Summit Hotel so I stopped looking. When we checked in, I was told that they did not honor the internet pricing ($130/room) and that I would have to pay $190 for my room. The hotel is not your... More

We stayed just one night at the Grand Summit and it was the perfect venue for our quick trip. This is a "grand old dame" with the bones to distinguish itself from the world of chain hotels. But it does come with some drawbacks. Our room was adequate in size and spotless but the furnishings are quite old fashioned and... More

Bear with me while I tell our story... We were driving home from a weekend in NYC our car broke down on the side of the road, we limped off to the closest exit which was Summit, NJ. We ended up parking in a business parking lot. Had to call a tow truck, and find a taxi and hotel. This... More

Dear Jocelyn, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review of your recent stay with us. I am very sorry to hear that we allowed your stay to get off to a bad start. It sounds like we may not have a corporate rate negotiated with your husband's firm, however, we should have found a way... More

Two years ago our son was married in this hotel. A perfect wedding, highlighted by a wonderful staff and outstanding food. Recently we returned to New Jersey (we now live in Las Vegas) for a visit to our kids and our new grandson. The staff remembered us, greeted us warmly, and the 11 days we stayed there were thoroughly enjoyable.... More

Our friends selected the Grand Summit as the hotel for their out of town visitors. This is everything you would want for your guests. A professional front desk staff greets you and quickly checks you in to enjoy your clean, comfortable, well-appointed room in the midst of a charming town. Updated accommodations include (in the main building) a spacious room,... More

I am a Flight Crew and as noted - this is one of our layover hotels. It IS the layover hotel we hope for when having a longer stay at Newark. If you want "art deco" kind of atmosphere - this isn't it. If you appreciate the grandeur and attraction of a historical place that has been kept up nicely... More
