My daughter got married on June 28, 2014 and her reception was at the Grand Summit Hotel. Everything was absolutely perfect from beginning to end! The dining room was beautiful, the coctail hour was outstanding and the food was probably the best I have ever had at a wedding! The staff, from Jimmy Thornton who oversaw every detail, to Cathy who orchestrared the entire evening, to the wait staff.....the service was 5 star! Our rooms were spacious, comfortable and immaculate. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and our guests who stayed there (32 rooms) had nothing but positive things to say about the wedding. My only negative was that the time passed so quickly....thank you Jimmy and all the staff who made our daughter's day one we will never forget! Eileen Roberti

Room Tip: Beautiful, quaint, comfortable rooms.

This appears to be a quaint old hotel, but it really is just a run down place. The heating/ ac unit in the room would be found in a cheap motel. The toilet faces the bed, the bed spread, towels are funky. The moldy smell in the room is nasty. I would not recommend this hotel, you can do better.

Room Tip: Find another place.

I stayed at the Grand Summit in late March, 2014. i was there for my aunt's funeral and the staff couldn't have been kinder. My late aunt had arranged a post-funeral luncheon for family and friends and it was delicious, particularly the desserts. The complimentary breakfast is excellent with something for every taste. The restaurant/bar also makes good soup. I found the room comfortable with good WiFi. Again, the staff is marvelous and I think they are what makes this hotel grand.

Stayed here for three nights for a family event. It's a quaint old hotel in need of updating. I would not refer to it as grand at all. The staff is accommodating, breakfast was good and the beds were comfortable. The furniture is just very worn looking. Towels are rough and scratchy and the elevator is filthy.. With some tlc this hotel could return to the grand status in its name but right now, not so much! The Hat Tavern was excellent. BTW a $9.50 per night fee for parking is added to the bill!

Dear Glynis,

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with a review of your recent stay with us. We were disappointed to hear of your impression of the hotel, and welcome the opportunity to show you some of our current renovations that are taking place at the hotel.

While many of our hotel guests love the stately feel of the main building, we have an entire section of the property along the pool where rooms have been completely renovated. I believe you will find these rooms more to your liking and welcome the chance to show them to you.

In addition to a brand new restaurant, we will be completely renovating our Grand Ballroom to transform it into one of the area's most sought after spaces for social events and corporate meetings. We just renovated two of our most iconic function spaces and added all new conference chairs and tables.

We look forward to the opportunity to show you first hand all that we are undertaking.

Sincerely,

Michael Marino
Assistant General Manager

My wife and I truly enjoyed our extended weekend stay at the Grand Summit Hotel. The Hotel is in close proximity to the train station so getting into Manhatton to see the city was a breeze. Excellent complimentary breakfast to start your day and free shuttle service to the train station. The town of Summit is also quite beatiful and quiet. The hotel is older but very well kept and the staff is outstanding. I highly recommend the Grand Summit.

Room Tip: The hotel is located in the quiet town of Summit. A great place to get a sound sleep after a long da...

We stayed here on business and the front desk service was exceptional. Specifically Christina, Diana and Jun went above and beyond to make sure that me and my colleague were accomodated. I would recommend this hotel for business travelers.

My husband and I wanted to see New York City without worrying about getting in and out of the city with all of the traffic. We stayed at the Grand Summit and loved it! The hotel provided shuttle service to the train station, which we used everyday to get to the city, but the town of Summit was so beautiful and quiet that we walked to the station, as it was close to the hotel. The hotel itself, as well as our room, was clean and the hotel staff was very friendly. The full breakfast that they serve each morning was delicious! We will definitely stay here the next time we plan a trip to New York City and I will be recommending this hotel to my friends and family.
