Expect the Exceptional at Westminster Hotel in Livingston, NJ

by Melody Kettle

A swanky restarurant makes for a promising date.  But when the restaurant is located inside a luxurious hotel, that's the path to a great date . . . and then some! 

Established in 2003, the Westminster Hotel has the honor of receiving the AAA Four Diamond rating for nine consecutive years.  Michael Polese, general manager at the Westminster Hotel showed me around the exceptional Livingston poperty which boasts over 16,000 square feet of  banquet and meeting space, and 183 luxury guest rooms.  

The Westminster is the first hotel to feature Hollandia International mattresses in all of their standard rooms.  As if that wasn't comfortable enough, suites at the Westminster have fully adjustable sleep system beds for customizable comfort.  All rooms also have LG HD televisions, and plush over sized bath sheets.

In addition to a Cybex fitness facility and in-room spa services, the Westminster also features a beautiful indoor heated pool surrounded by a Chinese Bluestone patio.

Throughout the hotel, guests will notice hip and thoughtful features such as leather walls, silk wall paper, and a mind bending holographic lighting fixture in the lobby. (Make sure to check that out!)
