  • My family, husband and I fell in love with Amy the moment she introduced herself! She has such a wonderful personality and always has a smile on her face! Amy was such an unbelievable pleasure to work with while planning our wedding! We planned our wedding from Georgia and she ALWAYS made it a point to pencil us in for a walk through while we were visiting the area for the holidays. She was quick to respond to any questions or concerns and was up to make anything happen for our Harry Potter themed wedding! The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel was our dream wedding venue! Asbury Park is where my husband and I fell in love and we knew we HAD to get married there! Our wedding package included the Oval Room, Versailles Room, and Crystal Ballroom. Our guests have not stopped talking about how breathtakingly beautiful the venue is! On the day of our June 12th wedding, Amy was there bright and early to get us up on the roof for our first look! This option became available only a few d... Read more

  • My April 10th wedding at the Berkeley was a dream come true. Amy Dimes (Events Manager) was a ray of sunshine from the moment we met; it was always "anything, just tell me what you want and how you want it". She was a joy to work with and the hotel staff were always cheery and pleasant when I dropped in for meetings or walk thrus. Our wedding was originally Sunday Jan 24th but a blizzard came in the day prior. Amy called me from home that day to gently explain that we should consider changing our plans (understatement). She made it clear that the decision was ours and the Berkeley would accommodate either way. We had guests expected from out of town, so we made the difficult decision to postpone rather then have them travel in dangerous weather. The hotel was amazing; we didn't lose a penny and they gave us first choice of any available dates moving forward. They honored the room block rate for our guests who had managed to make it to NJ before the blizzard and got snowed in. ... Read more

  • The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel was our FIRST and ONLY choice for our wedding reception and we had such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The Berkeley is stunningly, beautiful with so much historical charm! They are no other venues in the area that can offer so much historic authenticity! Everyone was so taken back by the event space. Our overnight guests were very happy with their hotel stay as well. It was not only convenient for our guests to stay right at the reception location, but the rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The Berkeley Wedding staff--- including Amy, Chris, & Francesca---were top-notch. They were friendly, easy-going, kind, enthusiastic, and very accommodating. Awesome hospitality! But putting all that aside, they were simply good-hearted people that wanted nothing but the best for us. They made the entire wedding planning process fun and memorable! Five Stars across the board :)

  • We had the time of our lives! The Berkeley was the perfect place for our December wedding! Stephanie & Chris were so attentive, professional and fun! We had our ceremony on-site and the flow of the rooms made it so easy for our guests.

  • There was always a constant smile & love for us, during the evening & the people working with The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel, even with 310+ people. What a great team, The Berkeley brought even more love to the night!! Could not have be more friendly & professional. We highly recommend The Berkeley to host your event. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not hiring the best team in the tristate area!!

  • The Berkeley Ocean Front Hotel was incredible to work with and created a magical wedding experience. I cannot thank the staff enough for being so wonderful! The guests at my wedding are still talking about the impeccable service they provided. Leading up to the wedding was also stress free due to their attentiveness. Not to mention, the beauty of the place! The Berkeley made all of my wedding day dreams come true. Thank you!

  • My daughters wedding was this past weekend. The staff (Amy, Chris and Francesca) was helpful polite and flexible while we decided where the ceremony should be (inside or out). They attended our every need and our event was fabulous. We also had the amazing team from Falcos catering to every need and serving their delicious food with smiles on their faces and keeping everything looking neat, lovely and refreshed.

  • I chose the Berkeley because its beautiful and it was a hotel. what could be better? WRONG. The Berkeley's treatment of me and my wedding was nothing short of DISRESPECTFUL. We went through a transition of not one, not two, not three, but FOUR staff changes and not once were we notified. Each time we had to start over and let them know what was previously discussed and somehow the last person's note never met it to the next. We finally ended up with Stephanie as our event coordinator and Sam the GM. After many headaches, I was hopeful that things would get better. WRONG AGAIN. Upon booking the venue, the Berkeley advised us not to block too many rooms, even though i was having a 250+ wedding, so that that we wouldn't be responsible financially. "Block 25 rooms" they said "we'll let you know when you're booking up and then extend the block". Stephanie was supposed to be giving us weekly updates on the room block which she did; "everything is looking good". Less than 6 months to the wedd... Read more

  • My wife and I looked at a handful of venues in the area but chose The Berkeley because of its art deco aesthetic, location near the boardwalk and catering manager, Jena. She was responsive, kind and easy to deal with. Unfortunately, she resigned after we signed our contract. Her replacement, Ryan, tried charging us $1,000.00 for something Jena said was included. Ryan said it was her manager’s decision and many couples were complaining. She finally agreed to waive the charge against her manager’s wishes. Then she resigned. Her replacement? Her manager, Stephanie. We were worried so many details still needed to be finalized and we were on our third catering manager. At our first (and last) meeting with Stephanie, she explained “how hotels make money”. Seriously. She also demanded written proof that Ryan had waived the fee, which we had. She begrudgingly gave us the room for free. She is extremely condescending, with an unfriendly face to boot. My wife and I are educated professi... Read more

  • My (now) husband and I were looking for a ceremony/reception combo venue that was on the water with an attached hotel. We were ecstatic to find the Berkeley, and fell in love with it's beautiful rooms and history. The first couple months they were fantastic to work with. Our contact Jenna was always reachable to answer our questions with a smile. Unfortunately, Jenna left to pursue other opportunities and it was all downhill from there. We were assigned a new contact Ryan who, while very sweet and attempted to be accommodating, was unable to give us any answers. When she left, she sent an email letting me know but was told not to tell any of her clients. She was concerned, so she gave us our new contact Stephanie and asked that we reach out following her departure. We attempted to reach Stephanie for weeks before making contact. When we did catch her, she was abrupt, dismissive, and constantly interrupted or spoke to us in a condescending way that made it sound as if we ... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel on May 30, 2015. I cannot say enough about how great the Berkeley and their staff were! Our day went perfectly thanks to the help of the staff, especially Jenna. She was wonderful to work with! She answered all of our questions (even the ones we didn't know we should be asking), was always quick to respond, and handled any potential issues with ease. Our day turned out more perfect than we even thought and we thank Jenna and her staff for making that happen.

  • Beautiful venue, excellent location for photos (tons of natural light). Oceanview rooms. Only advice to anyone booking an event - stay on top of your group for making hotel reservations overnight. It's a popular venue and may book up quickly depending on what events are happening. But couldn't have been more pleased with the aesthetics and hotel staff service. Recently renovated lobby was gorgeous.

  • Unfortunately on May 4, 2015 my wedding dress went missing from the hotel. I remember leaving it on the couch before I left the room to go to breakfast. My husband checked out of the room and we went to breakfast. After that, we headed home. When we unpacked the car and realized it wasn't in the car I immediately called the hotel. They swear their housekeeper never even saw it in the room. I was told there was no cameras on the floor and then oddly enough, they did have cameras! I asked them to watch them and said they did but never really answered my question. Well, what did you in fact see on the cameras? Because I know my husband and I didn't have them in our hands. At the very least, if I was never going to see the dress again, I would have liked just a comp for our room. Their response: "that's like asking us to be responsible for a dress you left in the room." Are they right? Maybe. It was dumb for me to leave it by accident but how in gods name does a wedding dress just disappea... Read more
