Everything, microwave and fridge were available without extra charge, relaxing atmosphere and i felt safe in the environment. No dislikes here.
Staff was great convenient location
There is no noise from outside creeping in or from people in the hallways. The bed is very comfortable. The price is right. Food selection at breakfast is very limited. No other meals are available at the property and it is inconvenient to find a restaurant nearby. Parking fees are high.
clean comfortable and roomy...really nice breakfast
Proximity to airport. Shuttle service to and from airport.
1st- Decent breakfast 2nd- Could not hear the airplanes even though we where right next to the airport. 3rd- After having an issue with the first morning having the lobby and breakfast area completely blocked by a school group, they moved them to a conference room are for the next 2 days to resolve it. 4th- Had plenty of power outlets around the desk. 5th- The free wifi internet was not slow, making it unnecessary to purchase the $9.99 a day "upgraded high speed" pass. After reading reviews for all the hotels in the area and seeing mixed reviews for all,I decided to to try each hotel for a few nights to see which was the best. Facing a 2-3 month stay in the area, I was going to be able to try a few. This was my second hotel after Holiday Inn Newark, so here is what I got. 1st- No bottled water in the room, maybe this is just a Northern US thing, because most major hotels in the Southern US and West coast have 1 or 2 free bottled waters in the room. 2nd- Had to pay $15+tax a day for parking even though when reviewing the description of the hotel it said there was a "Surcharge" for extended parking, it did't show the fees for parking until after booking even though it showed it as an amenity. I mean, I didn't have to pay for the pool, business center, gym, or elevator use, and they were all listed as amenities without noting a surcharge. 3rd- There was a smell to the room I couldn't place. It was a light smoke and minor mold smell. I got used to it after being the room for a few hours but every time I left and came back, there it was. 4th- Fridge was the smallest fridge you could possible find, like 1.2 ft2.
The room was super clean and spacious. I would stay here for leisure or business anytime. We even had a little view of the city and planes coming into Newark Liberty. My wife and I drove here from Ohio and this was the perfect balance of what we needed. Cost effective + parking + NYC access A little far from the city and public transit but with a little creativity you can get there in no time for only a few dollars.
Upon arrival we found a spacious room which was very clean and updated furniture with comfortable double beds. Microwave and mini fridge were included as well as free parking. The free breakfast was nothing fancy but was adequate and got the job done. I was happy to find my favorite Kashi cereal, but the coffee wasn't to my liking. Overall I would definitely book this room again.
Overall the hotel was beautiful. The room was very spacious and neat. My stay was very pleasant. The jacuzzi was out of order and the pool water appeared to be dirty. I didn't like that you have to pay for parking if you booked a room and that you only have 1 hour of free parking.
Convenient shuttle to the airport They provided me with take out menus for nearby delivery I ordered delivery from a nearby Italian restaurant and they delivered it right to my hotel room door. Nice indoor pool and jacuzzi There is no bar or restaurant in this hotel you have to walk down a road where there is no sidewalk to get to the Courtyard Marriot which is a short walk but 2 doors down to get to the food and bar. Menu and bar is extremely small.
The staff , breakfast and pool The location kinda tricky
Bra medelklasshotell. Bra med shuttle som gick ofta till och från Newark airport. Mycket smidit att boka via er! Fråagde receptionen om bästa sätt att åka till södra Manhattan. Receptionisten ringde en vän som var taxiförare och han var dyr. Dessutom sa receptionisten att resan till Penstation skulle ta 25 min. Den tog max 10 min. Synd. Skapar inte förtroende för personalen
Bra med närhet och buss till Newark airport Dålig restaurang halvdan frukost
They set up a pack and play and refrigerator. Huge win! No bellman to bring our bags up. We had to push the luggage cart ourselves. The restaurant was initially rude when I asked to take food upstairs (to my husband and sleeping daughter). I was surprised that this was supposed to be "in" the airport but it still required a van to access. They will not direct you to a walking path. The van was included (nice) but the driver refused to go to the premier counter, leaving us to lugg baby and bags up multiple flights. Not as easy as for a solo business traveller
Got in at midnight and still able to grab a quick bit in the restaurant/lounge! Staff was great and never made us feel rushed.
Hotel staff was nice, room was clean and not noisy. Restaurant staff were terrible. Can't be described as nice which is in sharp contrast to the hotel staff
Great bed, nice room layout, very quiet and dark which was nice for sleeping. If you close the curtains you will not be able to tell you are essentially in an airport. Restaurant was okay -- not bad, not great. A bit expensive for the quality.
Lobby and restaurants remodeled. You can walk to terminals but a shuttle is provided. Best place you can stay when departing from EWR.
A shout-out to the Newark Airport Marriott for their excellent customer service. Having taken a red-eye and landing in Newark at 5:55 yesterday morning, we went straight to the Marriott, not necessarily to check in, but to have them be aware that we were there, because we knew we wouldn't be back to use it until around midnight. The night clerk decided just to check us in early, at 6:30 a.m. We never went to the room, but left for our day in NJ and NY (and Neal Gottlieb 's Survivor viewing party, which was attended by so many relatives and friends). When we returned to the Marriott just past midnight, we attempted to print our board passes for this morning. When that didn't work, the same night clerk offered to try during the night and have them for us in the morning. Great. We went to our assigned room, and when we opened the door, we saw it was a wreck. It had not been cleaned at all. So it was a trip back to our now favorite night clerk. After explaining the situation, a supervisor got involved. We received an apology, and an upgrade to an executive suite which included a full breakfast. Thank you, Marriott!
check in was easy. beds were comfy. It smelled old
The place was very clean and nice, and very professional looking. If you're not a posh business person, it isn't the best. We made the mistake of ordering Dominos to the room, and the hotel was obviously not very happy about "fast food" coming. First of all, they gave the delivery person a hard time and accused her of not really having customers here and being shady, before they finally called my room. Once I confirmed we had indeed ordered pizza, they wouldn't even let the delivery person come into the hotel, and I had to go outside to meet them.
Had to pay for computer access in business suite, no free TV channels…..everything was promotional.
The rooms and staff were nice The shuttle service was very poor. Understaffed shuttle service for people trying to make flights. If you are going to use mini-vans, you need to have more of them, or have bigger shuttles on stand-by.
Amazing location adjacent to terminals Prices are similar to Midtown Manhattan
The bed was comfy and divine! Check out time was noon. Service fell short. Shuttle took 40 minutes to arrive; I had to call twice. Massive plane delays brought me in at 3 a.m. and it was not fun waiting yet again. First room shown smelled to me of smoke; no problem about changing rooms. However, she said she would slip a new room key under the door while i could sleep (almost 4 a.m. by now) and she did not. It was easier to not leave the room when I woke (bc very tired) then to deal with trying to get a new key to my room when I would be checking out soon. I left hotel at 11:30ish a.m. without coffee but showered.
Clean, very close to train station. Don't expect to check in before 3pm. Breakfast in the restaurant was terrible. Got the corn beef hash... by far the worse I've ever had.... tremendously overpriced for the quality of food. You will hear the honking from the traffic until approx. 10pm. The area surrounding the hotel is not nice... I would recommend not walking around much.
No running water. Not advertised at the time of booking although they knew there was a scheduled outage for repairs. Had to check out, get reimbursed and go to another hotel upon learning that there was no running water at check in.
We enjoyed how large the rooms were for the price we paid. Also conveniently located next to Penn Station.
I did like the access to the New Jersey Transit and airport. There are some resturants and shops in the building to pick up anything needed. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful to any questions we had. I did not like a few things in our room, such as, no place to hang a hand towel, the sink counter was badly cracked with a poor fix job, and the hair dryer was very old and weak. It seemed as a left over from another guest. The safety is questionable. I was there with my husband and felt okay but we both felt uncomfortable at times. I would not recommend staying alone or walking the streets at night. If you are there to visit NYC, I highly recommend staying in the city over NJ. With the cost of transportation and time back and forth, you waste time and money.
The bed was comfortable and stay was good. Don't order order room service . The food was terrible.
The staff were very helpful, they were particularly friendly in the Market Grill where we had breakfast on 2 mornings. Beautiful room, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Usually we stay in Manhattan when we visit New York but this hotel offered a great alternative.It was very cost effective as it was $10 return from the station to Penn Station New York [34th Street near Macys] Our room was not ready when we arrived and even when we came back at 11pm, we then had to wait on the bell hop to bring it up. Think this should have been done.The Starbucks attached to the Lobby only opened Monday to Friday and even then closed at 7 pm. The walkway from the train station to the hotel was closed each evening when we returned from the city meaning that we had to go outside of the station and cross the road to access the hotel lobby. During this we were stopped several times by people asking for money.
It has a very convenient location near the train station that made our trip in and out of New York easy. There was some difficulty in confirming a taxi booking to go to an event.
It's quite convenient, although the area isn't great. Staff was rude. They need to learn how to smile because their vibe was negative.
Arrived late and called the hotel about the shuttle from Newark airport, was told it was on its way. 1 hour later was told it was stuck in traffic, so caught a cab and was there in 10 minutes, didn't see much traffic anywhere.
Concierge Service on the 9th floor was super! Expensive restaurant in hotel with very poor service.
Comfortable bed nice staff Needs to be renovated in areas
Easy access to trains, Amtrak & PATH. Food was good. Service very good. Staff very good and nice. Very secure. The room door was slightly off kilter so it made a lot of noise when shutting
Bra rum, stort för att vara i närheten av New York. Bra frukost ingår i priset. Restaurangen är inte att rekommendera.
Det var ett prisvärt hotell som låg ganska nära flygplatsen. Dem hade minibussar som körde till och från flygplatsen. Stort rum med mycket skön säng. Det var rent och badrummet var fräscht. Det fanns kylskåp, micro och kaffesmaskin på rummet. Frukosten var helt ok, fanns även äggröra, bacon och potatis.
Jättetrevligt rum, rent och fräscht. Bra frukost. Lite oklart hur det fungerade med shuttlen till hotellet och vi fick vänta väldigt länge, vilket var jobbigt eftersom det var sent på kvällen.
Bra hotel och nära till flygplatsen. Gratis buss till och från flygplatsen. Bra frukost. Kaffekokare på rummet.
Eftersom vi bara skulle sova en enda natt var det bra att det låg nära flygplatsen eftersom vi skulle flyga vidare nästa morgon till vår semesterort Inte själva hotellet...men så fort man skulle utanför hotellet måste man tydligen ta taxi....enligt personalen finns tydligen ingen busslinje eller nåt annat sätt att ta sig in till stan eller till någon restaurang.
att jag kommer så nera flygplatsen o snabb bra buss service to. ja , det var facktisk frukos, jag visste att frukos buffet ska allt serveras själv, men i detta fall ska man beställa, det är inget frukost utan grött.
Bed was comfertable, room was clean Wall plugs far from bed Showerhead did not function well
Perfect hotel stay. Everything was lovely from the pool, to our hotel room, to the staff. They even welcome you with hot cookies! The best part is the Hilton Double tree is inexpensive :)
Shuttle service to and from airport prompt No breakfast provide unlike most in area
Value, and great view inside from inside balcony Got off elevator and looked for room. Sign said rooms 501-527 left and 529-549 right. My room was 528. Figure that out. It was around 2 corners, but room was great in the end.
Everythings good, thank's!! The room is a little old but everything works and very clean!!
The hotel was comfortable and had all the amenities one could need. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to check-in before 11 a.m. without an additional fee, took advantage of the free shuttle to the airport several times to get to the Amtrak station and head into New York City. When our room keys stopped working at we went to the front desk for assistance, not only did the clerk apologize for the inconvenience, but she advised that if it should happen again, we didn't need to return to the front desk. Instead, we could call from a house phone near the elevator on our floor and they would send someone up to assist us. This hotel provided great value for the price and I would definitely stay there again. When I checked out, I inquired about paying for parking. I was told that I would need to pay at the gate when I left since there were no charges on my room bill. However, I was not advised until I pulled up to the gate that they only accept cash there. Luckily, I had enough cash on hand to pay for my 2 nights of parking, but it would've been nice to have the opportunity to pay by credit card or at least forewarning that only cash is accepted at the gate.
Convenient location to the airport and decent shuttle. The warm cookie is always good. The room was not in good shape. The chairs had big stains on them and things were falling apart. When I checked out and showed the front desk person the pictures of the problems of the room she did not apologize but just glanced at it and said she would tell housekeeping.
I like that this is a pretty consistent hotel. I've stayed in Doubletrees all over the country and the staff is always friendly, the beds are typically very comfortable and the rooms etc. are always clean. I don't think that customers staying in the hotel should have to pay for parking. It is outrageous to have to make that extra payment when you're already paying a pretty good amount to stay there. Also, it wouldn't hurt to have affordable food in the restaurant. Since you don't have a free breakfast, at least make it affordable.
The only reason I was at this hotel is because I missed my connection and was rebooked to leave very early the next morning. The airline did not cover the cost of the stay so I had a choice and picked the Doubletree. From booking to check out the stay was a disaster. The shuttle took over 30 minutes because no one at the hotel notified him people were waiting. Upon check in at 11:30 pm I asked for a 4 am wake up call. I confirmed it before I went to my room. At this point, my phone is completely dead, it wouldn't even turn on. I literally plugged it in and fell into bed. The wake up call never came, but thankfully, due to a a leaky faucet that dripped all night long, I never fell deeply asleep and happened to check my watch at 4:18 am. I got ready and went to the lobby to get coffee, which was supposed to be there 24/7 according to the person who checked me in-- nope, coffee service doesn't start until 6:00 am, a change was made last week. If you are stuck at Newark and are looking for a place ro stay, go somewhere else!
Staff very nice at the check inn an out. Hotel very quiet, not noise b good sleeping environment.
Decent continental breakfast. Decent sized rooms Mediocre quality rooms.
Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, large clean room, enclosed safe parking Slight lack of noise insulation from overhead room and outside traffic.
close to NYC except with traffic could be 1 hr no working ice machines. no gym or pool.
I liked everything about this hotel, it is very reasonable price wise, staff is very pleasant I word reccomend this hotel to any and every one There's nothing I disliked about this location, The only thing I did dislike was I didn't see public transportation that could take me to Newark Penn Station wanted to go to NYC via the Path train
Nothing The service was poor, it was a very unclean facility, and the would not recommend this is place to anyone.
non smoking room, did have a bad smell of old smoking room.
the size of the room, the fact that there was a fridge and a microwave in our room they advertised a shuttle to the airport, but it didn't run on weekends, and it cost $10 pp, The area around the hotel is not that great.
The rooms were clean and comfy. Staff was rude
Hotel didn't have our reservation. They were sold out
Helt ok för pengarna. Lämpligt som övernattning vid Newark flygplatsen men kan kanske även funka för New York besökaren då det går shuttle flera gånger dgligen. Även taxi hade svårt att hitta!
Prisvärt och nära Newark Airport Inte så bra restaurang. Bristfälligt med platser för större sällskap (bara ett bord rymde fyra personer, alla andra var dukade för bara två) och varken vin eller öl kunde serveras till maten, som dock var OK i förhllande till pris.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very good. Joe's crab shack is right next door as well. The area is not very good. Went for a walk in the afternoon and felt very uncomfortable. Had to pay for parking as well.
The hotel is very hard to get to. There is no space to pull up to check in. The parking garage is extremely expensive, and when I arrived the staff had such thick accents I couldn't understand anything they were saying.
the bathroom was perfect, the bed and the comforter were very comfortable, and the tv was a great size and quality the food downstairs was way too expensive and there wasnt any kind of complimentary breakfast.
Surprisingly being next to a hockey stadium on a game night it was very quiet. We specifically asked for the quietest side of the hotel not facing the Broad Road. That might has to do with the quietness, and the floor was not so busy. The room was generally clean except the shower floor I can see black dirt residue. The front desk was curteous. We didn't like that there was no parking or rather we needed to pay an additional $21! Tax was quite high already on top of the rate. I wish the parking could have been covered or a bit less than 21.
The gentle man at the front desk was the absolute sweetest and most helpful person i've ever had the pleasure of working with. I stay at many hotels, and none the less I know that any Marriot hotel i've stayed at is built to work at its finest, but this gentleman went above and beyond to assist me and make sure we were comfortable. He helped me not only get a clean room quickly where I could put away my things and freshen up (since I had arrived much earlier than check in and had an event I needed to get to) but and when incurring a problem (When I thought I lost my ID and Debit Card) was helpful in helping me find it. It a shame on my part that with my terrible memory, I cannot remember his name. He was a caucasian male, in his late 20s promoting some football event, I believe, with a green shirt. My sister, A friend and I were attending a concert later that evening so we only booked the hotel for a one night stay in NJ, but with personnel like him and the cleanliness and professionalism of both the lobby as well as our hotel room itself, I felt like I should've stayed longer had I not already booked the rest of trip at the Ritz in Manhattan. Very satisfied. Definitely will be coming back again.
Close to Airport , Friendly staff, Good restaurant WIFI was poor on 8th floor . Could not surf internet properly.
Parking was not included
Nothing - rooms were dirty - bad room odour -
nice updated room. blankets were like brillo
The room was clean. It appears to have been upgraded and the AC was good. If you are there to work, it's quiet and a good place to stay as long as you are willing to put up with the staff's poor attitude. The staff was extremely rude. The fridge did not work and when I reported it to the desk clerk she asked "So... do you want me to send someone to fix it?" Really?! I wonder what she thought was the reason I told them it wasn't working and my drinks were warm. After reporting it three times I finally got maintenance in the room at 9:30 PM, the guy said he'd be back in 10 minutes and never came back. The next day I saw someone in the hallway and told him, he came over and brought a new fridge. More than 24 hours after I first asked for it to be fixed or replaced. I found all the staff to be rude and unwilling to help with the most simple request. There are no restaurants around so you are stuck paying an insulting high price for everything you eat or drink. The breakfast buffet is 14.95 plus tax and you have eggs, sausage and potatoes as "hot" food; fruit and french toast and muffins. Don't expect more.
Staff was super rude. Room was dirty. Absolutely disgusting
The location to the airport is good. The rooms were just okay. The parking was ridiculous. They did not have enough spots for how many people were there. I can't believe you have to pay for parking when there was not even enough parking to park there. Spent a lot of time driving around the parking lot and parking just where our vehicle would fit....usually no actual parking spots but rather parked on grass or in non parking area and left vehicle there. We asked for towels one night and never got them. The walls are very thin and we could here everything going on in the rooms and hallway. The rooms were not all that clean and the pillows were terrible. I would not stay here again.
We arrived much later than expected at Newark Airport. Fortunately for us, their airport transportation runs 24 hours. Called the front desk a couple of times about the transportation and they were always nice. It was also good to see a 24 hour pantry stocked with some pretty decent quality foods and baked goods, as all the airport concessions had closed with our late arrival. Our room was clean, modern, and nicely appointed. Overall, would highly recommend this hotel. Food in aforementioned pantry was a bit pricey. Bathroom fixtures needed some repair, but admittedly I forgot to tell them when I checked out. Location of the hotel not the greatest if you want to walk out of hotel grounds.
I liked that it had shuttle No pool or jacuzzi for the prize
Apathetic, robotic staff that did nothing to accommodate traveler that encountered a major issue
Helpful staff. Great food at Teds! The shabby leather chairs in reception don't reflect the overall quality of the hotel.
Last minute booking, and this was literally the only available hotel in the area in our price range. It was very old and outdated, but the room was clean and we didn't see any bugs or mice as other reviewers said. They told us not to park on the street or our car would be broken into. We didn't get murdered or even robbed! The hotel was in a horrible area and we were fearful for our lives the entire night. Needless to say, not the most restful sleep we've had. While we were checking in, we overheard another guest say that her room was broken into and things were stolen.
Nothing at all The worst hotel i have ever seen in my entire life.. it was so smelly and dirtiest hotel.. and the area was so backward and dangerous. Very poor rating from my side.
Room had no curtains broken blinds Broken utilities Not a safe place to stay because of the neighborhood the hotel is in
Nothing. Bullet holes, receptionist behind bulletproof glass, thugs living in apartments below that came from prison, history of murder, ect. Just don't even think about booking this place if you want to make it out alive.
The front desk lady was nice. Room dirt with hairs in bed. They change my room immediately but the next room had hair also. The location it's kinda ghetto and the people who where staying looks like drug abusers. Really smelly bad place. I feel sorry for the staff but it's the truth.
There were hardly things to like in the hotel except the vintage building. Locality is not safe to walk, elevator is very old and very clean, hotel beds are not comfortable, room amenities are old.
One staff member was pleasurable & attentive. Poor service, pictures online look noting like the hotel, unclean & poorly maintained facility. No amenities. I would rather stay at Motel 6!
Very clean, cool old building. Very friendly Lobby smelled like cigarettes
Cool hotel Roaches
Staff was OK No Wi-fi, although it was stated that they did have Wi-fi. Also, was disappointed that they charged for parking, which was not mentioned in their ad. I have never paid for parking at a hotel, or motel, in my life. Also, the area of the hotel is not the best place for feeling safe.
It's in a dangerous location, straight ghetto. It smells, and is not clean.
The view was surprisingly nice, hardwood floors, decently comfortable bed, easy check in Half drank water bottle in the fridge, what appeared to be bullet holes in the elavator, advertised at $60 but I paid $85 after taxes.
We experience a problem with our room which we brought to the attention of the weekend night manager The Weeknd manager change the room immediately she informed me that a manager would be contacting me to address my concerns about the room which did not happen. On checkout I brought my concerns up to the front desk manager which in short blamed me for the problem with the room
No hot water in bathroom sink and room heater was not working...switching rooms not an option because hotel was fully booked
The view was gorgeous and the room had some nice, high tech features. I enjoyed the clean style.
I grew up living in Newark and I remember it being a bank many years ago. Very nice upgrade. There no face towels in my bath when I jumped in the shower. That sucks.
I loved the style of the hotel and how clean it was and all of the updates it had and everything. The only thing that turned me off was the staff. Although super nice they are SUPER lazy. I have gone to plenty of other hotels and when I ask for something they send someone up to the room with it. Nope not these people, he told me to come down to the desk and get it myself unless I wanted to wait a while. (I was also on the 11th floor and just got back from a 6 hour car ride, but I went down there anyway) overall I don't think this room was worth what I paid for especially because it is in such a bad area. There are plenty of other hotels that are just as clean and are cheaper.
Location was great. It was nice to be able to get out of the city and away from the holiday crowds. Nice views of the city skyline. Not much night life close to the hotel. Most restaurants close to the hotel were closed on the weekend.
Gorgeous Hudson River/ Manhattan skyline view. The bar is nice and located in beautiful lobby
Excellent service Clean Great views of NYC Location is perfect PArking fee is too much.
Very clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. Beautiful views. $32 a day parking and no free WiFi.
The staff were very helpful.
Liked the room, balcony,pool and fitness room Too difficult to get to, walls were very thin and you have to pay for breakfast and coffee.
Airport shuttle is every 30 min right on time! Staff is friendly! Clean rooms and bathroom. Everything that you expect from Marriott only thing I would add is a water fountain by the ice machine.
Bra standard, trevlig miljö och bra kommunikationer in till Manhattan. Vi återvänder gärna hit igen. Vi bokade rum för 4 personer och fick 2 "dubbelsängar" som var alldeles för smala för ändamålet. De var ca 120 cm breda så var vaksam över detta.
Fantastiskt lungt och tryggt läge, gångavstånd till stort och bra köpcenter samt gångavstånd till tågstationen som på 10 min och för ca 2 USD tar dig till World trade center på Manhattan. Stora och mycket välstädade rum med all tänkbar bekvämlighet samt fin utsikt över hamnområde.Mycket smakfullt, fantastisk personal som hjälper dig med allt och lite till.Här ska du bo om du vill ha lite utöver det vanliga. Parkeringen kostar 30 USD per dygn för hotellgäster,vill du ha frukost får du betala 20-25 USD per person.Internet på rummet kostar 10 USD per dygn.
If you have a choice I wouldnt stay here. The surrounding area is horrible. Also, very very hard to find and easy to get lost in an area I dont feel safe in. The hotel is just average, the staff is just ok. Absolutely no restaurants in the vicinity so you are forced to eat at the hotel for mediocre food. Meeting rooms had leaking ceiling, where water came through like rain! Parking for hotel guests is expensive! Unfortunately I had to stay here for a meeting, if I had a choice I would not stay here!
I am very picky, about clean, germs when it comes to hotels. the staff was friendly, from the valet to restaurant staff. the room was clean. i would go back and stay there again.
Clean and affordable. I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel in general which would include the room, lobby area, and the indoor pool. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and very accomodating when it came asking for directions, coordinating adjoining rooms, and providing additional services such as a roll away bed and blankets. Each time we came back to the hotel from our day or evening trips the front desk manager or clerks would ask how our day went. We enjoyed the flat screen, LCD T.V. and the variety of channels available for free viewing. The only downside to the hotel is that it's located right off the highway across from the airport which meant we were pretty much land locked which limited our dining choices without having to drive. The Perkins shuttle never showed so we ended up eating lunch the first day in the hotel restaurant. Being right off the highway also made it very challanging and confusing to get into the frontage road area where th ehotel is locat...
This hotel has been recently been renovated. The public areas on the first floor are very nice, and the quest rooms are very nice as well. My only negative comment (and it's very minor) is that the hallways in the guest room areas still need to be redone. The front desk and restaurant staff's are very friendly and accommodating.
First of all, I am a veteran traveler. I used to travel for a living, spending more than 200 nights a year in hotels. What upsets me about any poor service experience is that it is relatively easy to avoid with good training and good management.\n\nI checked into the Doubletree Newark Airport after 11pm on the 13th of December. If I didn't already know they had a shuttle from the airport, there would have been no way to know they had one running. In the terminal and also at the P4 shuttle pick-up area, the hotel is not displayed on the courtesy phone area. I ended up having to call the hotel to see if indeed there was a shuttle bus available. \n\nWhen I arrived at the property, there were 4 people behind the front desk but no one at the front door or any bell service available. I had numerous bags as I was returning from an overseas trip and had to secure the bell cart myself. I passed several staff members with this cart and no one offered to assist me. \n\nThe guestroom was fine, alt...
Beware, renovation under way. Paint on carpets, in sinks.... smell is in the air. Not sure why I didn't know about the daily parking fee ($14).
I arrived at 2 pm only to be told to wait an hour. Upon returning at 3 I was told the room wasnt ready and I could have a double bed. I refused and was told by the manager YOU CANT EXPECT US TO RUSH OUR STAFF. My toilet was broken. I was charged 3 TIMES for the same thing. Then I was told the only thing that can be done is a FREE DINNER....unacceptable treatment and horrible attitudes
We needed a hotel not far from the airport as we had a 6:30 am flight the day after our stay. The staff at the Renaissance were incredibly helpful with any and all questions we had re: transportation, food, etc. Although we had a short night's sleep due to our obligations, it was completely restful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This was my third stay at this hotel and even better than the last two. The rooms, lobby, and restaurant have been very tastefully redone. The room was very comfortable with HD TV. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Even though near the airport, my rooms have always been quiet.
The front desk personell was very friendly the room was nice overall hotel standards were very good.
Some hotels have gorgeous communal areas, such as the lobby, and the lounge, but a different standard for their rooms. Renaissance Newark Airport had beautiful areas that were communal, and their rooms were of the same high standard. Bed was comfortable, and warm. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was accommodating and friendly. Shuttle to and from the airport is a plus. Many airline staff stay at the hotel, so the morning shuttle filled up fast, but another shuttle was dispatched right away, to pick up the overflow of passengers. I would stay here each time I'm in the area. Not just a good value, but a great place to stay, meet, eat, hold a conference, etc.
The room was pretty clean and adjacent to Newark Liberty International Airport. The view was just overlooking the parking lot. Nothing else. The lobby was very beautiful.
All of the staff that I encountered were very nice. The bed was comfortable. I also loved the welcome cookie. It was a nice surprise and I was hungry!! The location was great for my needs and is just minutes away from the waterfront. The room was nice enough but there was weird white stuff on the walls and in the bathroom. Cleanser maybe? I went down to the bar area and had to wait 5 minutes to be seen/ seated. There were just a few people there so it wasn't a busyness issue. I ordered soup. A little over 5 minutes later the server responded to tell me that the soup would take 25 minutes. I ordered pizza instead. It was fine but I was disappointed. The temperature in the room was freezing. I adjusted it with the thermostat on the wall but the air conditioner continued on, event though I had selected 68 on heat. I ended up pulling the plug to get it to turn off after an hour of adjusting the thermostat and waiting for warmth. I was exhausted from a long day and got in bed to watch tv. The remote control would not turn on the television. I inspected the outlets and they were all okay. The button on the tv worked but, even then, I was only getting 4 commercial channels. The lights on the remote were coming on also so I figured it wasn't batteries. I decided to call the front desk. Unfortunately, the phone in my room did not work/ call to the front desk. I tried both lines but no luck. I even tried dialing other services available on the phone but that just rang and rang. So.... exhausted and frustrated, I got dressed and headed down to the lobby. I had to wait a bit as a few people were just checking in. The person at the desk was very nice and sent someone up to my room. The man arrived to fix the television. He was extremely nice but the issue did take about 15 minutes or so to resolve. He wasn't sure why the issue happened but he had to get a special remote and change some settings. In the morning, I headed down to the restaurant again. I asked if I could order from the menu. I was told buffet only, though I think there may have been a communication issue. I later asked a different server after I saw the selection up close. It was generally unimpressive. She said that I could order from the menu but I decided to just stick with the buffet since the menu would take longer and I felt like I was being a burden by ordering. I was extremely disappointed overall. The eggs, potatoes and waffles were all cold. I ate just a little bit and spent over $20 with tip. I was extremely disappointed. Overall, I wouldn't recommend or stay at this hotel again, unfortunately.
The staff were extremely helpful, courteous and friendly and the hotel room we had wass excellent - spacious and with good amenities. Whilst there isnt too much to do, or see, in the immediate area with the ease of transport into Manhattan [the Path train from Grove station is only a ten minute walk away] it made a relaxing base.
close proximity to light rail and subway lack of view, lack of customer service with rainy day needs; umbrella, dryer for coats and shoes. stayed 2 nights, but hotel split it to two separate nights and we have to check back in and re-key our room keys for the second night. brought personal pillow and maid service removed it during the daily cleaning. T/he pillow was never found.
Yes! Very convenient! Very nice hotel!
price no bill at the end even from 3rd party billing and even in e-mail
Very comfortable. Great view and location!
The hotel is walking distance from just about everything and the light rail is behind it. Like the cookie at check in. Staff was very friendly. Had a room on the 3rd floor and the view was a roof with lots of vents.
Staff, including restaurant staff, were very friendly and professional Jersey City NJ. Accessibility from the highway was poor, even utilizing gps.
The reception staff, especially Felix, were very helpful and courteous. The room maids were polite and efficient. The hotel location was like an oasis with the nearby marina, shopping mall and street restaurants after the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
The hotel was conveniently located and quiet. Also the room had an alcove so our baby had some privacy. Somewhat expensive for the service received, but otherwise a fine night.
