Highly accessible to New York City, Prudential Arena, Jersey Gardens Outlet Mall, NJPAC, the Meadowlands and more, the Crystal Ballroom Banquet & Conference Center at Newark’s Ramada Plaza Hotel offers guests a level of hospitality evocative of a more gracious and refined time.  Locally owned and passionately run, the Ramada Plaza at Newark Liberty International Airport combines the warmth of a grander era with the style and comfort of today’s best hotels.

During the first decades of the 20th century, before the advent of super highways, the proliferation of airports, and the demise of travel by rail, hotels were locally-owned and so passionately managed that they became more than lodgings for travelers. They served as a place where business leaders met, friends dined, and families celebrated joys of life. We’ve used the indelible memories of those community-centered hotels of old as our design touchstone. Our gracious hospitality and top-notch service at the Crystal Ballroom Banquet & Conference Center transport our guests back to this earlier era.
