Planning an intimate wedding or celebration? Elizabeth offers several different options to choose from. Both Courtyard by Marriott Newark Elizabeth Hotel and Residence Inn by Marriot Newark Elizabeth/Liberty International Airport are excellent choices for hosting small receptions.
Courtyard by Marriott’s 590-square-foot Elizabeth Room has sleek modern decor and can accommodate up to 38 reception or party guests. Options include a reception layout, where guests can mill about and enjoy beverages or light refreshments, or a banquet arrangement, where guests are seated at round tables and served an elegant meal. After the event, guests can relax with a handcrafted cocktail and good company at The Bistro, the hotel’s on-site restaurant.
For smaller events, Residence Inn by Marriott offers a 500-square-foot event space that can seat up to 24 guests in a chic, modern setting. Host a birthday party or bridal shower where guests can sample tasty hor d'oeuvres, sip on champagne, enjoy a sit-down dinner, or both. After the fun has ended, guests who stay overnight at the hotel are treated to a fresh, complimentary breakfast buffet.
If you’re planning an event for between 25 to 150 people, another first-rate option is Embassy Suites by Hilton Newark Airport. The hotel has five different state-of-the-art event spaces to choose from based on the size of the event. You can host a wedding reception or family reunion in one of the larger spaces, or have a baby shower or anniversary party in one of the smaller ballrooms.
