Sitting just a few steps away from the famed boardwalk of the Jersey Shore, The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel is an icon of luxury that has enjoyed a firm presence within the Asbury Park seaside community for over 100 years. Designed by Beaux Arts architect Whitney Warren, the Victorian building bestows an unmistakable air of grace and grandeur suited for the most romantic of celebrations. The boardwalk draws in a dash of sun, sand, and energy along with the faint wisp of ocean salt, adding to the overall sensory experience at the boutique hotel. Boasting spectacular views just an hour outside of Philadelphia and New York City, The Berkeley is a prime choice for weddings in New Jersey.
With its French windows, marble checkerboard flooring, and dazzling branched chandeliers, the lobby at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel sets the tone of Old World charm and elegance observed throughout the venue’s five lovely ballrooms. Out on the Oval Ballroom’s terrace, guests can enjoy cocktails with a side of magnificent ocean views at sunset. The black crystal sconces accent the black-and-white patterned walls in the Versailles Ballroom, where towering white pillars add a modern Parisian twist and grand windows showcase the swelling horizon. Up to 350 guests can peer up at the cathedral ceilings in the Crystal Ballroom, where ornate fresco designs and oversized chandeliers inspire a truly regal celebration. Meanwhile, a more intimate affair unfolds in the Continental Ballroom. The largest of all the ballrooms, The Kingsley allows for a seamless flow that threads together the “I do’s” to the cocktail hour and the ultimate party afterwards. Whether your vision involves an intimate ceremony, a casual cocktail reception, or a celebration to top all others, The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel has what it takes to match your vision.
