Reviews We Love

  • The Sterling Ballroom has everything to offer. I mean their packages are outrageous and you cannot beat the price! At the end of the day, Melissa is what sold me on the venue. She was the most genuine person I had met with when going on our hunt. She gave me all the right vibes and did not disappoint at any point in the two years we were planning the wedding. Emails were answered swiftly and concerns addressed right away! She was literally every brides dream team! I definitely have to give a shout out to both Reena and Nemo as well! Amazing, amazing, amazing!

    — Marlin, Wedding, June 2018
  • From the first day Victor and I met Melissa to the day of our event, she made sure everything was exactly what we wanted! She helped us put together a beautiful wedding package that our family & friends are still talking about. Melissa has one of those inviting, friendly personalities that you instantly feel comfortable putting your special day into her hands. Planning a wedding can get very stressful and overwhelming, but working with Melissa it was extremely STRESS FREE. We feel we’ve walked away with a new found friend and can’t stress enough how pleased other couples will be working with Melissa!

    — Victor + Evamarie, Married October 2016
  • I cannot say enough about the Sterling Ballroom! It is almost ridiculous how much you get for your money, especially compared to other venues in the area. The day of everything was completely seamless. Our maître d’, Nemo, was excellent! There was not one hitch (and if there was, he must have fixed it before we knew). The food is INCREDIBLE, cocktail hour stations are different and delicious and the meals were amazing. Our guests are still talking about how it was the best wedding they had ever been to.

    — Bride + Groom, October 2016
  • From my first walk inside, to my walk down the aisle, I never stopped smiling. Victoria and Melissa are two genuinely amazing women who made our dream wedding a reality. They both made Freddie (husband) and I feel so welcomed, comfortable and loved. We can’t even thank them enough for all of their hard work and dedication they devoted to our wedding. God bless them.

    — September 2016 Wedding
  • 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.

    — Laura, May 2015
  • 3 weeks later people are still raving about how great the food and service was at our reception. Victoria and Ali were always fast to respond to any questions or concerns we had. On the day of, Nemo, the maître d, was there through the whole night. He knew everything that we wanted and the set up was perfect.

    — Lauren, November 2014
  • Everything was amazing, from the food to the venue and decor. So many of our guests told us that the cocktail hour was the best one they’ve ever gone to!!!

    — Kim, October 2014
  • 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
  • Victoria was incredibly kind and patient and helped us plan the perfect surprise Bridal Shower. My sister was extremely surprised and it turned out beautifully.

    The food was incredible, the staff was extremely helpful. It went so well! I would recommend anyone to Sterling Ballroom at the DoubleTree!

    — Colleen, 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
  • I could not have asked for a better venue and staff to work with… I already have friends who have booked their weddings at this venue, because it was the best experience I could have asked for!

    — Heather, July 2014
  • Victoria, Ali, and Nemo took such great care of us at my daughter’s bat mitzvah. The attention to detail and to me (the hostess) was outstanding! Top notch service was provided, and I will gladly recommend your facilities to anyone and everyone. A big thank you to the staff at the DoubleTree’s Sterling Ballroom!

    — Amy, June 2014
  • Our wedding reception at the Sterling Ballroom was absolutely amazing! I can’t think of enough good things to say about the staff, the food, the decor, and just the overall service! Thank you so much for making our wedding day such a memorable, fantastic day!

    — Natasha, May 2014
  • Victoria and her team went above and beyond – I would recommend this venue to ANYONE! My family members can’t stop telling me how perfect the celebration was. All of the planning & hard work made sure that the wedding day was flawless.
