Christmas Holiday Party with Nicole and Denise

October 13th, 2016 by The Majestic Hotel

A Rock-n-Roll Christmas Party, Saturday, December 10th featuring Nicole and Denise, Rockin’ The Jersey Shore Since 1996!

Nicole and Denise are different from other live entertainers for a variety of reasons:

Their repertoire is extremely versatile and the different styles of music keep everyone in the room interested. Nicole and Denise always play to the audience and sing songs that will appeal to the crowd at hand.

Nicole and Denise also differ from other entertainers because they sequence, arrange, and perform live on every song. Music is never “downloaded” from the internet. Every note has been personally created.

Nicole and Denise also play numerous instruments including voice, keyboard, guitar, and harmonica and only use “state of the art” equipment and a crystal clear Bose PA system.

Nicole and Denise can adjust the volume of the music to any level, especially in the event of a private party or wedding. Music will never be “blasting” in your ear as you may sometimes have experienced with other entertainers.

Nicole and Denise sound like a four or five piece band even though there are two performers. For the consumer this allows for convenient pricing and never the fear of a band break-up right before your special event.

Nicole and Denise’s years of education in the field of music and dedication to teaching enhance every musical performance

Nicole and Denise are all around professionals in musicianship, presentation, selection of music, and business matters.

Our Spring, Summer and Fall Wedding Seasons

September 1st, 2015 by The Majestic Hotel

weddingslide

Our Spring and Summer Wedding season has come to an end – What great weather we had for our beach ceremonies! When the beach was crowded with bathers, we did two ceremonies on the fishing pier, just above the beach with the ocean as the backdrop. This worked out well – it eliminated the wedding guests from having to walk on the sand (hard to do unless you have flip-flops), plus there were no sun worshipers and beach umbrellas in the background. When the bride walked down the aisle on the pier, the entire beach applauded!

After the beach ceremonies, the bridal party and immediate family stayed at the beach, pier and boardwalk for photos while the guests walked the short block back to the hotel for the cocktail hour in the lobby and the open air deck with ocean views.

We’re looking forward to a busy wedding season this fall. September and October are perfect wedding months at the Jersey Shore. The weather is perfect and the guests who stay over at the hotel for the wedding can enjoy a relaxing day at the beach.

For those wedding guests who book hotel rooms the night of the wedding, the party continues after the wedding is over. The next day, everyone meets again in the lobby for Continental Breakfast. It’s a perfect way to review what might have been missed the night before!

Many of our couples reserve the “Penthouse Suite” the day of their wedding.

It is an enormous suite where the girls can get ready – hair, makeup, etc. After the wedding, it becomes the bridal suite for the bride and groom.

 

We provide a list of preferred vendors – hair and makeup specialists who come to the hotel, as well as florists, officiants, photographers, bands and dj’s, all who offer excellent service and product at reasonable rates.

 

We do not charge referral fees and do not charge our clients for ceremonies – we take care of the ceremony set up, chairs included. We offer free ceremony rehearsals, whether outside or inside, and on the day of the wedding, we coordinate the processional, recessional, receiving line and guide the guests back to the hotel fr cocktail hour.bride-and-groom-on-beach-with-family

A History of Ocean Grove

November 29th, 2012 by The Majestic Hotel

Nestled in Neptune Township, NJ, you’ll find a small town that you might know as Ocean Grove. Whether you’re a new visitor or you’ve stayed with us at The Majestic Hotel in Ocean Grove before, you’ll love this quaint beach town and all that it offers. Shopping, beach time or alone time with that special someone, you’ll find it all right here. Perhaps one of the best parts of our small town is our history. As proud residents of Ocean Grove, we’re sharing the history of Ocean Grove with you today!

As you might already know, Ocean Grove was founded as part of the camp meeting movement in 1869. This was part of the holiness movement that lasted from 1824-1923. A group of Methodist clergymen worked together to form a summer camp meeting at the New Jersey shore that would draw visitors from Philadelphia and New York. The idea worked, and Ocean Grove was a popular place for visitors, who came from near and far to attend the camp programs. To this day, Ocean Grove is still owned by the camp meeting association with business owners and residents leasing property from the association. Ocean Grove remains the longest-active camp meeting site in the United States!

Since Ocean Grove was developed with religious intentions, the laws that people lived by tended to be much stricter than you would imagine. Until 1981, when Ocean Grove became part of Neptune Township, you weren’t allowed to drive a car on the streets on Sunday!

Ocean Grove has deep historical roots, shown by the greatest extent of Victorian and Early 20th century architecture. In 1975, Ocean Grove was even designated as a State and National Historic District! Some notable residents of Ocean Grove include Thomas Chisholm, Michelle Davidson, Southside Johnny, Haydn Proctor, Scott Rasmussen and David Spelman.

When you’re looking for a Jersey Shore hotel, The Majestic Hotel is a great place to be! You’ll be able to experience all of the history of this great town, as well as spend time shopping or at the beach. With so much fun to be had, what are you waiting for? Give us a call today!

Preparing the Perfect Thanksgiving Feast with The Majestic Hotel

October 29th, 2012 by The Majestic Hotel

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means it’s time to start thinking about preparing your family’s Thanksgiving meal. While the idea of cooking this special feast can get overwhelming at times, following a few simple steps can help your Thanksgiving run smoothly. The Majestic Hotel in Ocean Grove wants you to have the ability to prepare the perfect Thanksgiving meal, so we’re offering some Thanksgiving planning tips!

As you begin to plan your feast, it’s important to pace yourself and give yourself the preparation time you need so that you don’t get overwhelmed on the big day. You’ll want to make your shopping list and hit the grocery store to get everything you need a week or two before Thanksgiving. You should start preparing your turkey two days before Thanksgiving. Putting it in your refrigerator will give it the time it needs to thaw so that it will cook evenly. While you’re doing this step, you can also whip up your cranberry sauce. The day before Thanksgiving is the perfect time to make your side dishes like mashed potatoes, stuffing and pies. You can even give yourself time to enjoy the Thanksgiving Day Parade by setting your table the day before!

To start preparing your Thanksgiving feast, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. The amount of time your turkey will spend in the oven depends on how heavy it is. A 10-18lb turkey should be in the oven for 3.75-4.5 hours, 18-22lb for 4.5-5 hours, 22-24lb for 5-5.5 hours and 24-29lbs should be cooked for 5.5-6.25 hours.

In most houses, the turkey is the main dish at Thanksgiving dinner. Here are some tips to ensure that your turkey is perfect!

  • Remove the giblets and rinse your turkey thoroughly.
  • You’ll want to use about ½ to ¾ of a cup of stuffing per pound of turkey.
  • Brush the skin of your turkey with butter or oil.
  • Tie the drumsticks together with string.
  • Put a meat thermometer in the turkey at the thickest part of the turkey’s thigh.
  • Bake until the skin is a light golden color, and then cover the turkey with foil. For the last 45 minutes, remove the foil so the turkey can brown.
  • You know your turkey is cooked when it is 165 degrees
  • Let the turkey sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before carving it so it stays nice and moist.

Cooking the perfect Thanksgiving feast is easier than you think! With the right preparation, you’ll impress your family with an amazing meal! We know how overwhelming it can be to prepare an important meal, but with the right preparation it can be a lot of fun! This hotel in Ocean Grove wants you to have a great Thanksgiving with your family and by following these tips we know you’ll have a fantastic feast! ‘Like’ us on Facebook to see some of the big events we’ve prepared for and see how you can book your next even with us!

A Perfect Day in Ocean Grove

August 23rd, 2012 by The Majestic Hotel

The sun is shining, the waves are crashing, and families are running by with ice cream cones in hand. It’s just a typical summer day in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. This beach town is home to historic houses and landmarks, parks, beautiful hotels, the Atlantic Ocean and several mouth watering restaurants.

The Majestic Hotel in Ocean Grove is one of the gems of this quaint beach town. Built in 1870 as a 20 room hotel and renovated in 2006 now featuring 15 beautiful rooms perfect for a weekend getaway, it’s a must see if you’re visiting Ocean Grove. If you’re planning on spending the weekend with us, here are some great suggestions for a perfect day in beautiful Ocean Grove!

  • Wake up ocean side at the Majestic and head to Barbaric Bean Coffee Roasters on Main Ave. for your morning pick-me-up beverage of choice and a bite to eat for some fuel for the day. They have bagels, muffins and breakfast sandwiches made to order – delicious!
  • Grab the beach chairs and head to the beach! The Majestic is located just yards from the Atlantic Ocean. A quiet and clean beach front, Ocean Grove beaches are the perfect destination for a relaxing day at the beach with family and friends.
  • After soaking up the sun and sand on the beach for a few hours, it’s time to get something to eat. Whatever you’re in the mood for, there is a great restaurant waiting for you in walking distance. If you’re looking for something simple, Nagle’s serves up some delicious classic dishes with a great atmosphere. The SeaGrass Restaurant, serving up contemporary American fare is a favorite to many OG visitors. Try the Asian Tuna Salad or Salmon Ravioli for lunch!
  • Finish out the afternoon with a walk down Main Ave. to shop around the stores that carry everything from Ocean Grove souvenirs, antiques and pet goods to clothing and accessories for you and home.
  • Tired yet? For dinner, we have an amazing restaurant right in The Majestic that absolutely cannot be missed. A European Bistro, Bia, is the perfect place to wind down and talk over a delicious meal indoors or outside on the porch.
  • Of course, no summer night is complete with ice cream. Head to Day’s Ice Cream for some amazing ice cream – a definite favorite by locals and visitors alike. Relax with your favorite flavor, or take it for a walk on the boardwalk or to the Ocean Grove Pier to end the perfect day in OG.
