  • As a wedding planner in NJ it was a really hard decision to find a venue when I had been to so many of them all over the state. There were some places I just knew that no matter what I did, we'd never be able to have our wedding there because of the price pp. My husband and I had a day long search of venues and when we arrived at TWG neither one of us knew what to expect because I had never worked an event there. Upon entering the venue I was impressed with how clean it was along with the elegance of the entry way. Anne (who no longer works there) showed us around the premises and was such a pleasure to work with. She was no nonsense and seemed eager to please. She saved the cocktail hour area and the grand ballroom for last. I was completely in awe of how gorgeous the space was. Long story short, she worked with us to get the best deal possible and even upgraded us to a few extra amenities which were important to me. (vodka luge, extra stations etc) Leading up to our wedding I found o... Read more

  • I love John and the Wilshire Grand! The bend over backwards to make sure your big day is perfect. The were flexible in price, always responded within hours of your call, and the service was impeccable. Guests were delighted with the amount and variety of food. Many commented that it was the best quality food they ever had at a wedding. The staff was second to none. Everyone was pleasant and aimed to please. Every guest was treated with five-star service (even the most difficult of family members!). The joke about the wedding weekend was that you never needed to leave the hotel. The rehearsal dinner at Primavera was fantastic, hospitality room at the catering hall was made easy, and the hotel just steps away. I highly recommend the Wilshire and suggest you work with John, the most sweet, funny, and accommodating man!

  • I cannot say enough great things about the Wilshire. They did a lot of improvements (not that they needed to) which include new tiling on the bars, brand new uplighting in the ballroom, and pavers placed for the aisle outdoors and new chiavari chairs. From beginning to end they were amazing. Our Event manager was John Bowes. If I ever called for him and he wasn’t available, he always returned my phone calls that day and always promptly responded to my emails. He worked with us to get an amazing price and I felt comfortable throughout the whole process. Dinner was exceptional, and our guests couldn’t stop talking about the cocktail hour and the Viennese desserts!!! The whole day the staff waited on us hand and foot. We barely had to ask anything of them because before we could think of it, it was already done! I love them!!!

  • The Wilshire Grand was such an AMAZING place to have our wedding!! 5's across the board, as it was such an amazing event. Everything ran so smoothly. From the second we arrived, we had a personal "Bridal Assistant" to take care of our every need, from bustling my dress to getting us fresh cocktails. The food was amazing, the staff was attentive, and I had the wedding of my dreams!

  • The Wilshire Grand provided me with the best wedding I could have ever asked for. I had my cocktail hour in the Garden Room, reception in the Grand Ballroom, after party at the Primavera Restaurant, and had guests stay over at the hotel. It was a no-fuss day! We worked with Bill to organize our perfect day. The tasting was what got my family and I very excited for the big day. The food was outstanding! Keith was our maitre'd. He helped us on the wedding day to assure we had a great time. The food display was breathtaking, including the signature drink table, mashed potato bar, and ice sculpture! My guests raved about the overall food experience between the cocktail hour and the reception. All the food was served hot and cooked to their liking. The desert was fabulous(warm apple crisp, and the waffle basket). There was even a coffee bar at the reception serving cappachinos, lattes, and espresso with cordials. After our reception, my guests headed over to Primaver... Read more

  • Although I didn't get much of a chance to eat at our wedding- everyone told us how fantastic the food was. I hear rave reviews especially about the cocktail hour and venetian hour. The place is spotless. Everything is always kept up beautifully everytime we went there-- even "surprise" visits. They were accomodating with everything. the best part of this hall is the large dance floor in their main room. There was plenty of room for our guest to dance without bumping into to one another. Their patio and garden area was nicely set up for our guests. We loved it!

  • We hosted our entire wedding at the Wilshire Grand. From the ceremony to the after party it was absolute perfection! There wasn't a single glitch in the entire evening! The food was amazing. The staff there was ridiculously attentive. They really helped us achieve our vision! Nelsy who helped book our rooms was the sweetest. John our coordinator was perfect. He calmed me down and assured me that everything would go according to plan and he followed through beautifully. Keith our maitre'd was stellar! Bridget and Junior our attendants were amazing! Both of us had full drinks in our hands the entire night and anything we asked them they jumped to do it! The entire day was sublime! Now if you looking for a place that gives you the most bang for your buck, I would definitely check out the Wilshire Grand. I was very budget conscience and we wanted everything to take place in a hotel since we had a lot of out of town guests. Most of the hotels I looked at showed me a list of 20 hors d'oeu... Read more

  • My wife and I fell in love with the Wilshire Grand when we first saw it. John and his staff were outstanding in their ability to anticipate our needs and desires and exceed them. Johns's suggestion to have most of our formal pictures taken before the ceremony (at the Wilshire) allowed us and our wedding party to enjoy the wedding with our guests. The food was excellent and the service was perfect. We had two waitresses just for ourselves and they waited on us hand and foot. Everybody was so nice! We got more than we paid for.

  • The Wilshire Grand Hotel was a wonderful place to get married. John B. was a great help with all my questions and made me feel comfortable about everything. The grand ballroom looked wonderful and the food was outstanding. We continue to get compliments on all the food but mostly the Venetian Hour which blew everyone away. Our bridal attendant and Maitre'd were very attentive. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for quality service and moderate pricing.

  • I have to preface this review in saying that the catering side is extrordinary. The hotel side is a whole other story. John was absolutely amazing as the wedding coordinator. He had a food tasting for us that was out of this world. Everyone is still talking about the food at the wedding. the cocktail hour was divine!!! So were the servers, and then maitre'd. They were so fabulous, from set up to questions, to everything in between I could have not have been happier with the service from the catering end of the Wilshire Grand! The hotel on the other hand was terrible. They were not interested in helping us with transportation, more rooms or anything that they had originally promised. One of the bartenders was also very rude to my guests who is also employed by the hotel side.

  • The wedding was beautiful. They did mess up on our men cards on every table. Instead of saying October 17th, they said September 17th. Also they staff did not set up a table properly, causing the table to fall over and with the table came the whole flower display, including hot wax on a relatives dress.
