Wedding Blog: Wedding Hotel Booked

It’s been a little while since I’ve written a wedding blog, but the wedding process has still been going strong. And slightly slow since I’m the man not doing much.

I was in charge of finding a wedding hotel and after visiting the Kenilworth Inn & not liking it, I had my work cut out for me. We wound up visiting 4 other hotels over a period of a couple of weeks.

Hilton Homewood Suites Cranford NJThe winner was the Homewood Suites by Hilton in Cranford NJ. We picked this hotel for a number of reasons, the main one of which is its proximity to our wedding venue Galloping Hills Golf Course. It’ll be more affordable for us to do a shuttle for our guests since it’s about 2 or 3 miles away and 1 exit off the parkway & more convenient for our tired guests who want to go to bed after the long day.

There are also some great amenities offered for the price. We checked out the Hilton Short Hills that was probably too much money for our guests although the available amenities were nicer.

The Holiday Inn in Carteret didn’t offer refrigerators and had a more expensive bridal suite. The rooms and open space at the Homewood Suites were also nicer than the ones at the Hilton House in Morristown.

I made the initial arrangements through Johanna, but wound up taking the tour and meeting with Dyolinda who likes to be called Ms. D (don’t ask me). They seemed nice and helpful, although it took a couple of weeks and 2 attempts to get the text code & link to put on our wedding website.
