My husband and I got married in March 2019. When we first started researching wedding venues, we were looking for three big elements: a large dance floor, great food and an adequate number of bathroom stalls! We ended up looking at about eight venues before booking in March 2018. From the moment you walk into a venue, you do get a feeling of how a wedding would play out; and when we walked into The American Hotel, we knew we had found the perfect place. We first met with Joy and she showed us around the various ballrooms and the hotel rooms upstairs. The following Sunday, we went to the brunch buffet to try the food before booking – but when we sat down in the Majestic Ballroom, with its’ gold interior and beautiful crystal chandeliers, we knew this place was totally us! We ended up using all of the three rooms for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception; and reserved all of the available hotel rooms for our family and friends. After booking, Joy and Jim were basically my wedding gurus. I always ask a lot of questions and I think I broke a new record when it came to wedding planning. Thankfully, Jim and Joy really knew how to handle an anxious bride-to-be - they are true professionals and excel in the wedding industry! I can honestly say that if anything did go wrong at our wedding – we had absolutely no clue. Everything was beautiful and exactly the way it was discussed in the many emails and meetings. And, all of the supporting staff members that helped during our wedding did a great job! We really cannot thank Jim and Joy enough for all that they did in making our wedding unforgettable!

I don’t even know where to begin on how awesome the American Hotel was for our wedding on March 30th, 2019. From start to finish Joy and Jim were there every step of the way as far as all the planning, tastings, all the little details and my million emails and questions. Wedding planning can be so stressful but joy and Jim are both so on top of everything that we felt so taken care of there. We were able to book out the rooms in the hotel for our guests and having everything in one place (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, hotel room) was a huge plus and made the whole day even more stress free. And a huge plus for me was that they only hold one wedding at a time so your truly feel taken care of. Also this made it so that the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all in separate rooms and didn’t need to be turned over for different parts of the day. We also were lucky to have beautiful weather and were able to open up the patio for our cocktail hour and thru out the wedding. Jim and joy were there the whole day of the wedding from start to end and we’re so on top of everything as far as where me and my now husband had to be and he guided us thru out the day, (pics, cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc.) we literally didn’t have to worry about anything the day of. We were able to do our first look on their beautiful balcony, which turned out for amazing pictures. I am so thankful we stumbled upon this beautiful venue for our special day. 💙

We love our guests!!

""Just a quick email expressing my satisfaction for my brief stay.
Your front desk staff was excellent.
Friendly, attentive, and happy to answer questions.
Room 304 was spotless, and smelled great. 2 chocolates on the bed were a delightful touch. The robes were a happy addition. Comfy.
The water bottles next to the coffee machine were greatly appreciated.
I especially enjoyed the happy atmosphere on Saturday night, inside and out. The bands were lots of fun.
Room service was amazingly prompt. The fellow was so nice. He even got an extra chair. I must say that the prime rib steaks were expertly done to the request medium rare. I have had a few steaks in other hotels, and I would rate your chef the highest so far.
Check out was a breeze. I really hated to leave after just 1 night. I will definitely return to the American. I will also tell my friends. I love your location to the shore points and the racetrack.
Hoping to visit you again soon.
Regards,""

Joy and Jim were a great team every step of the way! From the intial tour of the venue down to the day after the wedding, the whole experience was smooth, happy and easy! They took all of the stress out of wedding planning and really, truly made us feel like they not only were the best at their job, but that they were doing all of this just for us! All we had to do is give them our vendors’ info, and drop off our centerpieces and wedding items and then Jim took my vision and turned it into the most beautiful room I’d ever seen. Every expectation was exceeded! Wish we could have a reception like that every weekend now!
Thank you thank you thank you!

You Need These Points on Your Reception Venue Contract

Planning a wedding or other event in the near future? I found this article in "The Knot" to be very informative. Particularly the advice to select a facility with a liquor license and insurance for same. Without a license and insurance on the facility's part, you could be held personally liable if, G-d forbid, something goes wrong or someone got hurt. The American Hotel is fully licensed and insured to provide and serve alcoholic beverages. Many catering halls are not. Please check before you book.

We had my daughter's Sweet 16 last night and it was amazing! We booked last year and it was a great experience from then until the evening ended. Joy was great and our maitre de Jim was awesome! They were very accommodating with room access and very helpful every step of the way. All the guests raved about the room, the food, and the service. My daughter had an amazing time and we are so great fun to the American hotel for making the night so perfect!!

As a newly married couple (as of two days ago), writing a review normally would not be a priority. HOWEVER, the American Hotel is the exception.
We are still beaming from our experience at the American Hotel and cannot wait to host more events there in the future.
It all begins with Joy and Jim. The two of them effortlessly lead us through the wedding planning process. Joy was prompt and clear with her communication and was the perfect mix of savvy and compassionate. I remember being rude during our first meeting; a terrified groom to-be, fear, frustration, and anxiety definitely affected me. However, Joy recognized this and did all she could to assuage my fears and give me and my bride the wedding that we wanted. She found solutions for us at every turn and embraced every challenge we presented her with. She really knows what she's doing and was happy to do so --- every time.
Jim, the maître d', was unflappable. As luck would have it, it rained on the day of our wedding. Having had our ceremony at a local church, we had a five hour gap between service and reception. Our initial plan was to take pictures outside, but the weather was not cooperating. Instead, what did we do? We showed up at the American Hotel early by a few hours. Looking for a spot to take pictures, Jim and the staff had no issue with us using the main ballroom for our portraits, even though it infringed upon their setup time. Jim and the staff were only concerned with our happiness and how they could help us have our dream wedding. They were so attentive and accessible. No request was too small. No request was ignored. We could not be more grateful.
The food at the cocktail hour and reception kept our guests raving. The cocktail servers made sure to circulate to all corners of the room and the turnaround time from kitchen to guests' stomachs was impeccable. So many of our guests had no idea how they'd have room in their stomachs for their entrées. SPOILER ALERT... they made room for it.
We could not be happier to have held our wedding at this charming Freehold venue. It's charming and graceful motif, expert and attentive hospitality, and overall flexibility and desire to please make this a perfect 5.0/5.0. We cannot thank and praise the whole staff, Joy, and Jim any higher.
Thank you American Hotel for putting the cherry on top of the happiest day of our lives.

The hotel is gorgeous, the staff is amazing and our wedding exceeded our expectations. Jim and Joy are an incredible team; I cannot thank them enough. I never worried for one second that night if things were running as planned because even when your flower girl falls asleep 10 minutes before your ceremony start time, Jim just ran with it. They are truly wonderful and this is such a hidden gem.

I had my daughters bridal shower at the American hotel and the manager was so helpful. from the moment we got there he had helpers for us to bring in our party stuff (which was a lot). Introduced us to the staff that would be assisting us in anything we needed. And boy did they. The staff was amazing. So professional so compliant. The room looked great when we got it ready. The food was so good. We had.a choice for everyone to pick from we had it sit down style and the staff came around quietly to each person and asked what choice they would like. Just so nicely done. When we were leaving they were still there to help us get our stuff out. From start to finish, I would do an affair there anytime I was that pleased. I'd like to personally thank Jim. And Henry for such a wonderful experience.

I had my wedding at The American Hotel, and I can't say enough great things about Joy and Jim, the coordinators there. They are truly gifted at their jobs, and you can tell that they love it. The hotel is beautiful, and the food is out of this world. Definitely worth a trip whether you're planning a special event or you just need a place to stay. The only con is that music from the bar can be heard pretty clearly from the first floor bedrooms. If that'll be a problem for you on a Friday or Saturday night, ask for a room on a different floor. Other than that, it's a wonderful little hotel.

I had my wedding here yesterday and everything was PERFECT! The food was delicious- I got so many compliments from guests about the incredible food the staff prepared for us. The banquet manager Joy and the maitre de Jim went above and beyond to make sure that my husband and I were happy. The cocktail hour room and the ballroom both looked absolutely stunning. I highly recommend this venue!

I threw myself my own bridal shower,After doing so many research because we just move in the aérea I ended up at the American Hotel i made a appointment with them. Right since we start talking to Jim we just felt the coziness you can tell when someone really love what they are doing my fiancé and I before we book we decided to try food and we felt in love and we pray that they will have the same food at the party because usually a lot places they have good food at the restaurant but at the halls is just totally different, so we decided to take the chance and make the party at the American Hotel I was really nervous at the beginning because my fiancé family is really big and if you mess up they will talk about you over and over and they already have a place where they make their party's but I decided to go different and boy let me tell you that the owner of that place is not lucky he is truly bless to have people working for him they way Jim does he is outstanding, truly amazing person he take care of my like if was his own party, the food was way better than my expectación everything was just amazing they wrote my name wrong Jim went right way got some flower who knows from where and he put it right in top of the cake and make it look beautiful. Everybody was asking me how did I found that place they where so surprised about everything they told me that they will definitely have that place in mind, Jim thank you so much for everything I didn't have my own part of the family there with me but I felt that you were one of them. People please don't waste your time and money going somewhere else try this place Love, Apostolis & Sileny ❤️
