UPDATE: Sheraton Hotel Management Statement on Dating at the Hotel

Yesterday evening, TLS Tweeted about a reported change in policy regarding dating at the Sheraton Hotel in Eatontown.

Today, after seeing our report, the hotel management reached out to TLS to clarify the apparent misunderstanding by its patrons.

“We’ve seen online reports that only guests of the hotel may enjoy our bar, lounge and lobby areas,” the management wrote to TLS. “These reports are the result of an unfortunate misunderstanding, and this confirms that our longstanding policy of welcoming the community to enjoy these public areas remains unchanged.”

”We look forward to greeting you at the Sheraton!” the management added.

  1. That’s funny . My son tried to go there 2 days ago and they did not let. They turned him away and told him it is for hotel guests only. They are not telling the truth. They are probably scared of ……..

  2. When informed that the Sheraton Hotel in Eatontown has not changed its policies, and is still allowing people to use the bar, lounge and lobby areas, even if they’re not hotel guests, one Lakewood resident sent a letter to the Sheraton in Eatontown saying: “I just got engaged a few weeks ago, thanks, in part, to the deep philisophical conversations I had with my bashert in your Sheraton Hotel lobby.
    There’s something about that lobby that allows the mind to enagage in deep philisophical thoughts, and ultimately that enables people like me to connect with their intelluctually gifted basherts. I want to thank the Sheraton for that.
    However, I don’t think I’ll be needing your lobby, or services, any longer. And I’d prefer not to break my bank account on fancy servings of Coca Cola. But thanks anyway. And, when my future offspring need a place to hold deep philisophical conversations with their basherts, I’ll know where to send them.
    Sincerely yours,
    Joseph Aristotle

  3. The Lakewood Scoop is apparently no longer allowing commenters to use its comment section unless the comments are deemed fit to be in the comments section. The Scoop’s comment section has long been a popular comment section for local commenters.
    UPDATE: Fictitious sources are reporting that a Scoop employee clarified to an aspiring commenter that most comments are allowed to be posted on the Scoop, “unless we’ve got an issue with a particular comment, then we send it to the trash bin, where the comment is deleted forever and lost for eternity.”
    “We do our best to accomodate all commenters,” the Scoop employee reportedly said. “But sometimes it would be best for everyone if a particular commenter went to a Hotel lobby to shoot the breeze, instead of posting a comment that might not be in the best interest of the Commentee or the Scoop, or anyone else for that matter.”

  4. A good business opportunity for someone to open a beautiful dating lounge in lakewood charge a $25 cover fee and sell drinks i think it would make a killing

  5. Seems like @Truth Seeker has a first hand experience so sounds like hotel is not telling the truth, or they are backtracking because of the negative publicity. This hotel has plenty of business from the frum community so it would be kind of disgusting to not allow the usage of the lounge to frum people. I think the owner may be frum as well????????????

  6. Its a really important venue and would be a big loss for frum dates. But the solution is simple: Be a real patron. Buy drinks and pay for parking.

    • I’m confused.
      The original thought was that you need to be a guest, “being a patron” would not suffice.
      After the clarification that is unneeded. So are you just saying what is the mentchlich thing to do?

  7. They have no mistake, wasn’t a misunderstanding. The Eatontown location made this policy against Corporate policy. Once corporate found out, they got chewed out….

  8. Why would you go to a hotel to use its bar and not buy a drink? The hotel has every right to turn away people not purchasing anything. Go to Applebees to use their tv if you must. We can’t expect a business to not want to make money.
