"Easy to get to, great natural light in the crop room. Excellent
service, terrific food, and the ergonomic chairs were simply the
BEST!"         Vivienne

The cropping space at the Hamilton Park Hotel & Conference Center is
the gold standard of crop rooms to date! I loved everything from the
ergonomic chairs to my individual table to the large bright room! The
food was excellent and the continuous break station just outside the
crop room a real plus. I did a two-day local but hated to leave - next
time I'm staying overnight.

I attended the Scrappetizer weekend in Florham Park and it was my first
weekend away scrapbooking. It was an amazing weekend. Everything was
great…from the table sizes to the massages. What a great first
experience. I picked up on a few neat scrapbooking tips and really
enjoyed myself. Thanks for a great weekend.
