The Merion, Cinnaminson

The Merion is a catering and banquet facility located on Route 130 South in Cinnaminson in Burlington County. This is a massive building that can, according to its web site, accommodate parties of 30 to 1,500 and is certainly one of the most well known event halls in South Jersey, having been around since the 1960s. Having been there for the first time recently, I was quite impressed by the expansiveness of the building and the exquisite decor that gives the feeling of a French mansion (Versailles-ish, if you will). I can't speak from personal experience, but I'm guessing that The Merion is probably a top-notch place to have a wedding, banquet, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or other important function due to its upscale decor and variety of ballrooms, including the Skylight Room where there's a 30 ft round by 40ft high dome that adds a dramatic effect to your function.

Other amenities that are also offered at The Merion is valet parking, sculptures, fish tanks, spiral staircases, lots of marble and more... in other words, plenty of spots for photo ops, and elegant atmosphere. It's a pretty versatile facility that also offers business function capabilities. A recent corporate event that I attended was nicely done, though I had some concerns about the food selection and service at times, but it was a morning function and I suppose that this was probably not a normal occurrence for them; ultimately the function as a whole was well done however.

If you're interested in booking The Merion for your upcoming event, call 856-829-2111.
