Reviews We Love

  • Victoria and her staff were so accommodating and professional. If you had a question they were always there to answer right away whether it was via email or phone call! The food was also outstanding here which is very hard when serving almost 200 people. We had opted for the Platinum Package which had an awesome cocktail hour as well!

    — Newlyweds, October 2015
  • The venue is gorgeous, the people are amazing, and it is honestly the best choice you could make to reserve this venue if you’re getting married in the area. Take it from a perfectionist — my wedding here was PERFECT. Thanks so much, Victoria and Nemo! You guys are the best!

    — Bride, August 2015
  • I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience working with Sterling Ballroom for our wedding on August 2nd.By the end of the night, everyone was in awe over how wonderful the wedding was and our families and guests had a great time! We are so very happy with the way everything turned out and could not be more thankful to Victoria and everyone at Sterling Ballroom for making our wedding the best night of our lives!

    — Kaitlyn, August 2015 Wedding
  • Victoria, who planned and coordinated our wedding, is the best. She makes everything easy while letting you personalize the day to make it your own. Choosing a location that allowed for an outdoor ceremony and separate cocktail hour and reception rooms, all while connected to the hotel made the day hassle free. We would highly recommend the Sterling Ballroom to anyone planning a wedding!

    — Danielle, Tinton Falls, July 2015
  • Nemo and the staff handled everything efficiently and gracefully. Everything was wonderful, and I appreciate all of your assistance with scheduling and coordinating. I love doing events here as I always know that we will have a great event.

  • Everything was awesome from the Sterling Ballroom. Everyone raved about the food and the service was fantastic. There is not one negative thing to say about the venue. We had such a wonderful experience. They made everything such a breeze and not to mention the venue is beautiful. We were apprehensive because it is a hotel, but we were blown away upon our first visit. The Sterling Ballroom comes highly recommended.

    — Tiffany, September 2014

  • This was the first place we visited after doing some online research, but we don’t regret it one bit! We received multiple compliments throughout the night and after the wedding day. Thank you DoubleTree!

    — Bride, August 2014
  • I particularly want to commend Ali Fernandes, Nemo, Anna, and Maria for helping to make the shower the success it was. They went above and beyond with their caring, attentive attitude to every aspect of the planning and details. You can be proud of your staff and the wonderful reflection they are of your venue – professional, knowledgeable, customer focused, with a genuine commitment to excellence. I have recommended your venue to everyone who asks.

    — Karin, July 2014
  • Our wedding was a huge success because of your help. We love you and loved that we chose the DoubleTree. Everything was perfect, including my and my family’s stay before the wedding and the complimentary bridal suite we got after the wedding. Thank you again.

    — Scott + Mona, July 2014
