About Chateau Grande

Inspired by classical French architecture—mansard roofs, grand staircases, bubble chandeliers, ornate crown molding and formal gardens—The Château Grande Hotel evokes the Belle Époque of luxury hoteling. But it also offers state-of-the-art appointments with mid-century modern sensibilities and generous suites are ideal for entertaining and prepping for your wedding, either at the Chateau Grande Hotel itself or at The Park Chateau Estate and Gardens just steps away. You truly get the best of both worlds here.

Together the Château Grande Hotel and The Park Château offer a remarkable level of refinement in a destination setting for weddings and bridal events. Conveniently located in the heart of the tri-state, in East Brunswick, New Jersey, their idyllic French American facilities suggest a proper measure of grandeur fit for the most important occasions. Modern dining and catering by seasoned chef David Burke complete the destination’s trifecta of wedding production, luxury lodging and relaxed bar and restaurant.

The Angelique Ballroom

With its elegantly neutral décor, fancy chandeliers and light-filled windows and doors overlooking the outdoor courtyard, the Angelique Ballroom is perfect for intimate weddings up to 125, with ceremonies hosted either indoors or out. Celebrity chef partner, David Burke, produces and caters these weddings, while their sister facility, the Park Château, conveniently located next door, accommodates even larger nuptial affairs.
