  • Jennifer Marvel

    Jennifer Marvel, Catering Sales Director, has been part of our team since 2010, and has been immersed in a proud tradition of hospitality since day one. Her father was a Banquet Manager, and her mother worked at our hotel for 25 years. Her background has taught her how all the pieces fit together to create extraordinary events. She says she loves recommending the Atlantis Ballroom because the food is outstanding, the value if phenomenal, the beach is minutes away, and (most importantly!) the staff will never let you down. In fact, she recently helped plan her brother-in-law’s wedding at the Atlantis Ballroom, and was thrilled to attend one of our weddings as a guest for the first time. If you have any questions, or event planning is stressing you out, don’t hesitate to reach out to Jen. She loves to help, and we can all attest that she gives great advice!

    Blair Applegate

    Blair Applegate, Catering Sales Administrator, started at the Days Hotel as a front desk representative in the summer of 2017. She did such an amazing job working and communicating with guests that she has since been promoted to work in the catering sales office. Blair has always known she wanted to go into hospitality because she’s always had a passion for working with people. Her favorite part about being a catering sales administrator is “being able to make a bride and groom’s wedding day special and everything they had imagined it to be!” She enjoys working with so many unique couples, and loves a challenge to get them exactly what they want for their special day. A quote she lives by is, “To achieve big things, you have to have big dreams.” Her greatest strengths are working and communicating with people along with her dedication and determination to her work!

    Kayleigh Evans

    Kayleigh Evans, Maitre D, has been with Hotels Unlimited since early 2016. She started off as a server with us, and quickly moved up the “catering ranks”, as she now gets to coordinate all of the food and beverages for each event at Atlantis. Her favorite part about her job is seeing all of the smiles and gratefulness from the brides and grooms. She loves making their dreams come true! Another thing she enjoys about her role as banquet manager is the decorating, and she says setting up all of the bride and grooms stuff is a great time. A quote that keeps her going each day is, “Don’t let one bad day stop you from reaching your goals!”

    Courtney Mattsson

    Courtney Mattsson, General Manager of the Days Hotel Toms River, has been with Hotels Unlimited since 2010. Previously the General Manager at another Hotels Unlimited property, Courtney is beyond excited to work at a hotel with an extraordinary reputation as being a staple in Toms River, NJ and a widely sought out banquet facility. She prides herself on her attention to detail and making sure everyone – from our hotel guests to your wedding guests – have an outstanding stay with us. What she wants our brides and grooms to know? “From the moment you walk into our hotel, you’ll be treated like family, and we’ll make sure your event is perfect!” And she couldn’t speak more highly of the staff and the hotel, “We’re always striving to make ourselves better! From our staff to our award-winning accommodations and services, I can promise that we will exceed your expectations.”

    Hudson Patten

    Hudson Patten, Executive Chef, has 20 plus years’ experience in the culinary and catering industry. This experience shines through with his exquisite cooking style and in the delicious cuisine he provides at the Atlantis Ballroom. He has appeared as a guest on the CBS TV show What’s Cooking back in 2014, and has racked up several awards from various cooking competitions. These include awards for his homemade chili in three separate competitions. When he moved from Virginia to New Jersey to start work for Atlantis Ballroom, he discovered his love for being a catering chef. As an applied-art artist in his free time, Hudson loves any opportunity to explore his creativity. His favorite thing about the job is being imaginative to come up with new recipe ideas, and to make all of his food look like a work of art for brides, grooms and their guests!

    Reviews We Love

    • I had my rehearsal brunch, ceremony, and reception there. Everything turned out beautiful, and everything went so smooth. The Atlantis Ballroom is such a beautiful venue to get married and celebrate a marriage! I could not be happier with how everything turned out. My guests have been talking about it for the past few days, and they said it was some of the best wedding food they have ever had!

    • I had the pleasure of hosting my youngest daughter’s Sweet Sixteen at the Atlantis Ballroom on August 27, 2016. I have 2 other daughters which have had their sweet sixteens at other venues, and I will tell you, that the Atlantis Ballroom by far blew away the others with their service. I had a “mini wedding” as referenced to me by all my guests. Everyone raved about the amazing time they had. From the very first phone call with Jennifer M, all my needs were attended to. Planning was made very easy and the prices were very reasonable for the package we had chosen. The Atlantis Ballroom has a very big dance floor, and with our very large family, we knew this would be a big plus.

    • The food was delicious and the portions were huge! I found the Atlantis ballroom super affordable compared to other venues because they include so much in their packages. And did I mention the food was delicious??

    • The entire experience at the Atlantis Ballroom and at the hotel was exactly what we wanted! Everyone from our old school Italian grandparents to the youngest guest loved the food. We were treated like we are all family. They bent over backwards for us. You guys will not regret having your special day here.

    • Jennifer always took the time to answer all the questions we had and helped us during the planning process. They truly made sure our day was a special one! We also felt well taken care of, because the staff was constantly checking on us, as the Bride and Groom, and asking if there was anything we needed. It really gave us the opportunity to enjoy the night for ourselves.

    • From the word go, things couldn’t have been any more perfect. The hotel is beautiful. Treated me and all of my guests as if we were royalty. They fixed things that I had no idea even needed to be fixed. Through the whole wedding planning process I never felt like a customer but instead like a part of their family.
