Breakfast was horrible tv was broke and I set the alarm clock for 8:00 am and bring they cut the power off for a min the alarm didn't go off getaway was awful
Everything, services and everything they did to make us happy The bed a little be, it was like not what I was spected i Think they can have a better mattress
I was very dissatisfied with our stay. I planned a last minute staycation with my daughter. The weather was menacing so I looked for a place in the area with a nice indoor pool. What they don't tell you in any of the descriptions on the Sheraton Paraippany is that the pool is part of the Atlantis Health Club and, evidently, anyone can go for the day (I imagine there's a small fee). We were swimming in the already cramped single lane of the indoor pool. I was already dismayed that, even though there were many little ones swimming with their parents, they still excluded us from the other two roped off lanes--one was reserved for lap swimming, and the other for kiddy swimming lessons (with MANY kiddies, one of them screaming at the top of his lungs for the entirely of his lesson). I noticed pieces of food, cereal and other garbage, laying around the pool, while the life guard sat there, allowing kids to balance themselves on the divider ropes, despite someone trying to swim laps right next to them. What sent me (and my ten year old) over the edge was when an entire group of young children arrived from outside the hotel. A day camp I think. There were now an additional 15 or so kids, plus 3 or 4 adult supervisors. For the first half hour they were there, the outdoor pool was still closed due to bad weather--why they did not open up another of lane to accommodate this group is beyond me. They expected 30+ people to swim comfortably in one lane of a NOT Olympic sized pool?! It was ridiculous so we left and went back to our not very clean room (pubic hair in the bathtub, stains on the carpet and on the bed-skirt) and ordered over priced hamburgers that were hard as hockey pucks and ridiculously over-priced. It was just an all-around very disappointing experience. I will not be returning there.
When I order a superior king don't change it to double bed room and tell me that's what I ordered
cleanliness, friendly hotel staff Women's bathroom above my room. You could hear high heels and high power toilet flushing from the 6th floor bathroom every few minutes.
Can't give much of a review. Was there on business for one night. Location was convenient. Exterior was impressive. Room was nice. I was not expecting much, so it met my needs. Would stay again.
Good location. Reasonably clean Hotel needs to be updated. Bathroom was small and cramped. The hotel is in need of repair. The restaurant closes too early.
Bathroom was dirty
Comfortable place to stay CHECK-IN CLERK / SERVICE POOR
Everything. Hot tub was a special treat. Limited chance for late checkout. Some rooms are subjected to background airport sounds.
Clean. Friendly staff
The attendant at the Front Desk Myron, could not have been more rude! As I came down to check out I simply said I am checking out and all he said was just drop your key. I then asked for a receipt and he fumbled through in a huff as if I was putting him out. He did not find my hotel receipt, just a beverage expense. I asked him for hotel receipt and he looked up in a huff again and said you don't get a receipt because you booked through something else so contact them.I simply asked you cannot print an actual receipt and he just responded NOPE. I then asked for a breakfast bag since it was before 6 AM. He simply huffed away and then handed it to me without saying anything. Beyond rude. I would have stayed there this week as I am coming back for work. I will certainly not at this point. No place for bad service in competitive service industry.
Charged an extra $10 to park in their dirty parking lot. Breakfast was understaffed with 100 people going for one chaffing dish. No service staff. Room was ok. Only three pillows to save money. Out dated. Run down. Hazard tape across staircase. Constantly waiting for the elevator in groups of20. All jamming in and people standing waiting for the next one. Ugh
Everything was great. Nice breakfast with a hot selection every morning along with the usual waffles, toast, cereal, etc. I liked the strawberry topping and whipped cream for the waffles. I had anticipated a sofa sleeper in the king room, and there wasn't one there...not a big deal.
There was nothing to like it appears the place is a welfare people placed by Social Services elevators dirty not for business traveler It is an overrated hotel interns of price and facilities, plumbing in my room was not working properly noisy leaky water , my bedspread had blood stains So I slept with no covers
the shuttle bus does not come very regularly. We waited between 1 am and 1:50 am at the P4 location at Newark airport. There is no phone at the picking up point to call them and ask them for pick up. We managed to call their phone using a regular line but still it took additional 40 minutes. We were also informed that between 2 and 4 am there is no service. This is despite the fact that the advertisement says 24 hours shuttle bus service.
Good beds and breakfast. Poor wifi.
It's a fabulous hotel with attentive staff and impeccable accommodations
Very comfortable and there was no one else in the pool and workout area when I used them.
Great location right in downtown New Brunswick. Good price/rate via kayak Musty/dusty room wreaked havoc on my allergies. Shower handle was broken and had to be replaced. No free wifi.
The room was clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The hotel is well-laid-out and beautiful. Breakfast was fresh and tasty, but overpriced.
Very clean and quiet Price of valet parking
Fantastic hotel very class, very comfortable No
Every thing no
This was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. I was overwhelmed when I pulled up and stepped into the lobby, my first words to the registration desk were "well I'm out of my league". Everything was perfect. The staff was professional and courteous. The room was extremely clean and very modern. The view from my room was nice, looking down at the the state theatre, or out at the rest of New Brunswick. And I lucked in to a "special price". So it was very affordable. I have not compared it to regular rates yet, but I would think the room was worth significantly more. If I go anywhere in the vicinity I will be staying here again. These didn't bother me personally, but just to make others aware. The heldrich is in the middle of the city, so you either have to luck into free street parking or utilize the parking garage directly behind the building. Parking cost about $20 per night, or $25 for valet parking. There was not a refrigerator or microwave in my room, maybe it was just the room I chose. But again none of these bothered me.
Incredible value Rooms are clean Well appointed rooms from bedding to technology They charge 8.95 for internet access. Just raise your room rates by $9 and include it.
Hotel was very nice and served our needs for a quick, one-night stay near the Rutgers campus. We didn't really have time to take advantage of all the hotel's amenities. Parking was pricey; we chose to self-park because valet did not have in/out privleges. It was a bit of a hassle to drag our luggage from around the corner.
nice gym and good breafast, comfortable, friendly bar lounge
location and convenience to downtown paying for parking, hotel should have free parking for guests if they want to park their own car and also valet if they want. A choice for the guests would be nice. Also the bathroom needed some maintenance: the shower rod was loose and leaning down / the towel rack was loose off the wall / and the shower curtain was hanging off of the hooks and not hooked together.
1-In my 2nd night in the Hotel, almost during all the night it was vry noisy whith the next door: very loud talking + TV.2- Please for Breakfest pur more Tables to sit down and we were missing eggs
Very nice room! They did a very good job on the remodeling of this hotel. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again. Would like to see a better breakfast selection. No protein. Everything was carbs and sugar. Did a very nice job of setting it up though. Also, outside in the parking lot, someone had just dumped their trash in the parking lot. Not the hotel's fault, but it is a shame that this kind of element would be staying here.
The Hotel is basically designed for people on the road in new Jersey - not sure if I would stay there while in New york.
Breakfast at the entrance of the hotel very bad quality bad.
Good location to NYC (30-45 minutes by car). Good stuff. Clean Room.Good continental breakfast. Too smoked groundfloor. Ventilator didn't work in bathroom. Too loud air conditioner. A bit noisy in Hway side.
the people were every nice and the food is every good and the late check out is every nice no ther was nothing wrong with it at all
Great staff: when I was stranded after a bus mishap they went the extra mile to get a shuttle to me. Very accessible from Newark airport. Remodel has front lobby and breakfast area torn up, giving even more of an industrial feel than the hotel already had.
everyone was nice from the i check in to the time i checked out no there was not one thing i did not like
Continental breakfast I would like cleaner rooms and also I think that there are rooms which necessite renovation
Our double queen room was updated , clean , and very comfortable for us . Staff was friendly and supportive when the printer wasn't able to print my boarding pass . Location was ideal ! Lobby tables were rickety.
I loved this hotel. Very clean, nice staff at front desk, perfect location and I loved the decor. The only problem I had while staying here was every morning housekeeping woke me up with their very loud conversations in the hallways. There was even some shouting.
Very clean. Very nice modern rooms. Great value for the money. My only negative was that it was a very narrow path between bed and desk but it wasn't a big deal.
The property is modern, sleek, beautiful. Anda well kept facility. Breakfast is not available on the weekend, only through a limited room service menu.
Very friendly and professional staff.
Room, facility and staff Room Service was OK and Food was too expensive, especially the breakfast
Clean. Nice looking. No free coffe in lounge. No free breakfast on weekends. Not enough parking. Pool closed at night.
Doorman was nice. Girls behind desk were not pleasant. Plus, I checked out early. Booking.com told me there would be a cancellation charge but I didn't hear how much. Hotel charged me a cancellation fee of $75; Booking.com's email showed it was supposed to be $35. Same when I checked in--rate higher than Booking.com, but I caught it then.
Price, Location and Staff WiFi didn't work in the room, but not a big deal
The Strip House restaurant
The staff was extremely helpful and courteous in both the hotel and the restaurant. The facilities were clean. The rooms need more noise insulation. Both from outside noises, and interior noises. There should be an exhaust fan in the bathroom.
My girlfriend and I spent the night there for a nice getaway from home after we had went to my brother's soccer game at Seton Hall. Everyone and everything was great. The room was perfect, we had requested extra towels before we checked in and the accommodation was made. When we got there, I called the home bar to request a bottle of wine and the bar staff was able to help recommended a good wine for us. Everything was clean and comfortable. Definitely would recommend staying here for any occasion, especially for the price, very good value. We will absolutely keep this hotel in mind for weekend excursions in the future. There was nothing not to like, everything was great.
Location & price. Thin walls.
Pleasant and clean No bathroom exhaust
comfy beds, entire staff bathroom amenities (shampoo, conditioner, lotion)
Close to Newark airport. Far from NYC.
Nice comfortable stay Free breakfast was terrible
Clean and comfortable rooms. Right off the NJ turnpike. If I don't need wifi, I would stay here again. No wifi in room but there is a business center. Breakfast was bad - stale food with poor taste. A TV guide would be helpful.
Cleaness Breakfast time
Friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location to where i was working, inconvenient to restaurants. Bed was a horrible sleep number. It wasn't even plugged in or a remote available when I arrived. They had to send someone up with multiple remotes to test and get something to work. After the first night the remote stopped working. Would not book there again.
I really appreciated the attentive service. Front-desk staff were incredibly nice.
The hotel was perfectly located for us, near the train to head to Manhattan and near universities. We were on the back side and our window looked down upon the trash.
Room was clean enough, bathroom worked, all the basics were there. I ran the fan all night and thus the room was quiet enough to sleep in. Its main business seems to be weddings and other big parties, so bar and restaurant VERY crowded and not available to guests who want to have a quiet drink. Door to hotel does not have automatic open button -- crucial not only to those with mobility issues, but anyone with a lot of luggage. How is that even legal in 2016? Breakfast included but there's not enough seating, so it gets loud and crowded. They use styrofoam cups for coffee. Again, I must remind the hotel, it's 2016. The decor is **very** outdated. Forest green carpet in the room, vertical strip wallpaper -- from the 80s or 90s. Was fooled by high reviews into thinking this was a nice place to stay when it in fact it is just adequate.
Front desk was very friendly at check in. We attended a wedding here and staff were less friendly after the event (less we had been drinking but not belligerent). Walls are thin. We were woken up at 9am by housekeeping knocking on other peoples doors. There appeared to be water damage in the ceiling and bathroom needed some maintenance.
It is a great location, just a block away from the train station. Went here to get away from distractions and focus on work. Got a nice size room, all the amenities that I need and with room service, I never had to leave my room for anything. Perfect place to get quiet and work done. Not that it bothered me but the decor is a little outdated. But a desk still worked as a desk and furniture didn't break on me. If I was going to the hotel for an actual leisure trip, the tv might need to be upgraded.
The rooms are comfortable and clearn and there is a really bar and restaurant connected to the hotel. It's in a subburb and has a completely different feel than the "big box" hotels. Love the nice breakfast spread they put ou the morning which is included in the room price. There's also a very nice pool and courtyard.
We like the room, continental breakfast & convenience of train to the city. Train is a plus. Sr.'s can buy a SENIOR train ticket at the TRAIN STATION, otherwise buy train ticket at hotel & walk approx. 1/2 block to train. VERY nice older hotel. It is an older hotel but everything is very nice. We like the continental breakfast. Parking. Train to the city is great, can walk 1/2 block & get on the train to the city. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times.
Front desk not accommodating
Very impressed, felt luxurious not outdated! Beautiful hotel, friendly staff, loved it!
Not too many shops
Friendly staff, convenient location All good!
Great location for use of Newark airport. Great staff! Nothing
good overnight with early morning flight departure. Enjoyed lobby bar with good accompanying menu -- not a bad place to hang out and unwind. Staff was friendly and accomodating, keeping their cool during a substantive number o all-at-once check-ins. Shuttle from airport terminal departs from the extreme end of the airport, which depending on your arrival
Friendly staff Bath room old fashioned, Car Parking very expensive
The staff is extremely helpfull and friendly, special in the restraurant. Parking was free!
Room was clean and spacious. Comfortable. Original parking lot wasn't working and had to park in the guest parking, which was completely packed. Only good thing was that instead of paying $20 for parking, I only paid $15 plus fees. Ridiculous that we have to pay for parking, even with a room. Pantry area was almost empty with no variety,
Clean Not enough mirrors you couldn't chill wroth your friends because the walls are paper thin
For of all this app said that the Hilton had a spa and that was a lie !!! Also the indoor pool was dirty! The customer service was shitty. & to top it off we had to pay for parking which was $20.
I needed a hotel close to Newark airport, this hotel is clean and Comfort. the transportation from the hotel to the airport is easy by car or you can take a taxi. the hotel is not good for holiday or fun, it is just for stay the night close to airport.
Access to everything Fixures in the room needed maintenance
This hotel had modern, large, bright rooms and a comfortable bed. The hotel was great, however, there was incredibly slow service in the restaurant. That being said, when they did arrive, the wait staff was courteous, efficient, and pleasant. Additionally, the food was very good.
I had no problems checking at 2am, and the room was quiet all morning.
Lobby and staff very good. Room was a dump. Dirty, stick carpet, damaged furniture and chair.
Location and Price Maintenance. No one answers phone Hair Dryer was broken and UNSAFE. could have caused injury
Our sheets and towels were changed on the daily. Our room was clean and beds were very comfortable. Staff was very pleasant. We were staying for 9 nights and laundry services nor dry cleaning was available. No fridges available in rooms either. Our room smelled like cigarettes when it was stated the hotel was a non-smoking hotel. Besides starbucks not many nearby places to eat within walking distance. Ice machine broken on our floor and outdated decoration. A bit overpriced nightly rates for a hotel where nothing is inclusive (wi-fi was very limited, breakfast)
the location was nice and the hotel was very spacious. not having a steam room.
A friendly helpful staff There were no problems at all
The hotel was a great deal, liked the location, was relatively quiet Some of the staff had attitude, expecially at the hotel restaurant which i would not recommend, 3star food at 5 star prices
The staff was friendly, room was clean, close to shopping Parking area was full, had an event going on
Rooms are clean and spacious. The staff was incredibly unprofessional. I was there for business. When I returned to my room my dog was not there. I was furious. They have no right to remove my service dog from my room and if there was a problem they should have called or emailed me. There are so. Any ways to get in touch with a person in this modern day, it's unacceptable for them to remove the dog without reaching me. When I returned, after they took a few minutes to go to the back office and get my dog, they seemed nervous, as if they knew they didn't have the right to take him. They said they were nice enough to feed and walk him. I explained that dogs have sensitive stomachs you can't just feed them new food and that it's very dangerous to walk and have a persons dog out and about. God forbid something happened to him. They said it was because he was barking, well I've travelled with this dog for 11 years. We've gone everywhere from Sedona to jersey to st Barths, without issue. They should have called me before removing him. I would NEVER stay at this place again. They are unprofessional and unfit to be running a hotel.
The facilities are nice as are the rooms. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was good. I ordered a Martini in the restaurant that was served in a champagne glass instead of a martini glass.
Excellent staff. Was charged for a Tylenol, I thought that was kind of cheep.
It was very clean, bathroom was really nice. Room was extremely small.
When we arrived at the front desk at 11pm our reservation was not on file. The staff had to scramble to give is a single room. To the staff credit they discounted our stay and comped breakfast. See above.
Very clean. Quiet. Friendly staff. It would have been nice to have a refrigerator in the room.
Would have appreciated a breakfast buffet that was included in cost of room. Otherwise, great hotel.
Hotel is nice on the outside. Good location. Pool and gym are ok but not great Rooms are old and beat up. Beds were not so comfortable. Toilet broke. Ac was leaking water and was so loud. Bad customer service. Promised a crib but never got one. Promised a mini fridge but didn't get one until next day which caused my food to go bad. Will not return to this hotel.
Nice rooms, comfortable bed, staff were pleasant, the shuttle to the train was a nice touch! Hotel wifi was out the first night. Hot water was out the second day I was there. Vanderbilts, the hotel restaurant was ok, food was ok, bar staff were terrific, but there isn't really a system for being seated or getting service.
Clean bed sheets Clean bathroom No hot water for showers Just warm water Looks old inside rooms
Location and atmosphere very friendly staff everything seem to be very clean, and comfortable. no
Confusing charges. Unable to provide receipt for cc charge. Promised to email but no response, yet. Fun sports bar.
Staff, parking validation Room key was glitchy- didn't always work on first try
The room was HUGE, even with two beds in it. The usable desk/workspace pretty much ran the full length of the window wall, allowing me to spread out some presentations I was working on among the conference materials I had collected. Spacious bathroom...that then goes to the negative category. They do have a white noise machine in the room, which came in handy. I was able to check in an hour early, so that was nice after 14 hours of travel. Validated parking for the underground garage was a plus, too. There was a lot of disappointment. I was on the 11th floor, right near the elevator. While I didn't really hear too many people in the hallway (mostly cleaning staff), the late night ruckus from the street could be heard well into 3 or 4 AM (where the white noise machine comes in handy). Every emergency vehicle going by could be heard loud and clear. To put it mildly, the windows are not sound proof by any means. The bathroom is beyond dated. Old tub, clunky showerhead that sprays everywhere except on you, and shower curtains that leave a gap on one side or the other because they are not wide enough. LOUD flush on the toilet lets everyone on your floor know you just took a poo. My first night I realized that I was missing a mini-fridge, which the front desk though was odd (I think they thought I was lying). They put in a request, but I never saw anyone, so I had to make another request the next afternoon while I was attending a conference. It was there when I came back that evening. The lighting is a miss-match of fluorescent, LED, and halogen bulbs. Some dim properly, others are all or nothing, making it difficult to find a happy medium once the sun goes down. For the price, I might have expected a little more, especially with a Hyatt Regency name on the door in downtown Morristown. I think that a Hyatt House would have been cleaner and more elegant of a stay, which is sad. I would stay here again, but only if my conference is there.
The room I asked the front desk to tell the other people to stop smoking weef but they didn't do anything
Clean room with breakfast included AC was broken in room, took them 1.5 hours to get us room with working AC. Staff seemed overwhelmed with tasks and wasn't very helpful or responsive to problems. Obviously old hotel with a few cosmetic updates, but still dumpy.
-Searched for this hotel on Kayak and it was the cheapest of the ones in the area. I'm surprised that the cost was so low because it really was a great place to stay! -Continental breakfast was great, new food items every day. -The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. I called down on the second day of our stay to ask for more towels and washcloths, which they quickly brought up to my room. -There were three entrances with stairs, which was nice if you didn't want to wait for the elevator. Also, if your room was far from the main entrance it was a faster way to get to and from the parking lot. -No password needed for the WIFI (most hotels make you sign in and it's kind of a pain to connect if your password is incorrect or misplaced). -There was a sports bar connected so you could eat there if you so pleased. -They did not have a water fountain on the first floor (or any floor to my knowledge). -The ice machine on the third floor was broken. -No fridge or microwave (I did not ask for either but these would have been nice accommodations).
The location was great. The cost was unbelievably low. It was very quiet and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Total time to check in and out was less than 5 minutes. The room was huge. Refrigerator and microwave in the room, also. Conveniently located next to Target, gas station and dunkin donuts for coffee. Gluten Free restaurants, like Luigis and Godfather, were very close. Great place for business travelers like myself. Room was very clean, but the carpets were dirty. There was an a second entrance to the right of the main entry and there were always large groups (10+ people) standing around and smoking and hanging in the parking lot, sitting in running cars... It was a very awkward environment and almost impossible to avoid.
Location Everything. The place was a dump. It smelled bad, the facilities are decaying and poorly maintained, the food was terrible. An all around horrific experience. The place needs to be completely re-furbished and renovated.
I don't have time to list EVERYTHING
Clean and Spacious room. Food shops and other stores are where near to hotel
Location was fine Dirty and smelled
We stayed at the Hyatt due to a football game across the river. We had booked the rooms based on the location and were not disappointed. We were able to walk to the downtown area (only a block away) and grab a late lunch before heading to the tailgate and watching the game. The hotel is a little bit tired, but the staff, the cleanliness and the location were outstanding.
The staff are very attentive to their guests. Helpful. Dinner entrées were most enjoyable. The noon buffet lacked refinement in some regards
comfort of room. I booked hotel through booking.com which was on Dolce site. I paid more doing it this way then calling hotel directly. I could not get clarification on this from hotel staff as they could not change the price. Never book through booking.com.
After a pleasant stay at the Dolce Basking Ridge, I needed to head back to New York. I asked at the front desk how to get to the train. The gentleman driving the shuttle not only took me there, he took the time to explain that the train had been replaced by a bus, drove me to the train station, and when the machine at the train station didn't take cards, drove me to an ATM to get cash, then back to the train station. Thank you, sir!
The hotel was lovely - however on arrival the Hotel was overbooked and we had to stay at offsite at one of thier annex hotels, The next day we were upgraded due to the inconvienance, however staff were very friendly and the hotel was very nice. The Hotel is far out of NYC therefore it is not close for those wishing to visit NYC.
Cleanliness of the rooms and the updated decor as well as ameneties in the rooms The staff was somewhat cold.
The gym and pool are among the best in local hotel choices for this area of New Jersey. Covered parking is also a huge plus in the winter or when it is raining.
I returned to the area to attend a High School Reunion which was held at this venue. Everything was very professionally done; a good time was had by all attendees.
close to my meeting address N/A
Staff curteous but fumbled wrt 10am arrival on day 2 of stay. Room clean. Bed comfortable Room cleaning starts too early - 830am. Breakfast could be included at room rate paid and be fair
it was convenient n/a
Cleanliness of rooms, attentive staff.
Food was good Room was awful Sink leaked Fan in Bathroom kept me up Windows did not open
Nothing I never made to the hotel before I was called by the management and threatened with arrest if I showed up up for my reservation. The fact the manager called me and threatened to have me arrested twice before I even arrived at the hotel.
Clean, quiet room. Excellent breakfast. Best coffee I ever had at a hotel.
The bed was clean, bathrooms clean, very spacious, two televisions, a fridge and microwave were great to have. The staff was friendly and very helpful, even giving me menus for places I could order from. One free drink from the bar for each night I was staying? Awesome. Breakfast was delicious, and had many choices. Would come back.
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 located. You needed to learn the N.J.. u-turn system the hard way to figure it out. Great touch to have the computer and printer in the business area for guests to print out their boarding passes. Security wise they have a guard at the gate of the parking lot and you need your room key to operate the elevator.
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.
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 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.
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 front desk personell was very friendly the room was nice overall hotel standards were very good.
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.
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).
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!
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.
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, although it needed a bit of cleaning. The bed was quite comfortable. As I recall, this used to be a Wyndham and it had been throughly renovated under their management, so the product quality was good.
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
The Irish pub in the restaurant was excellent. The staff was very professional, accommodating and friendly. The room was clean other than the issues cited in the other box. The lobby is beautiful and clean. The location is convenient and there was plenty of free parking. I booked for 3 adults and requested 2 doubles, however my email confirmation stated 1 king bed. I called the Marriott and was told there were no rooms left with double beds. I then called hotels.com and was told the room could be changed to 2 doubles, however upon arrival the reservation was still for 1 king. Thankfully the desk clerk noticed the size of our party and immediately changed the reservation 2 doubles without me having to ask her. Don't know why this was an issues when I originally called the Marriott (or why the change made through hotels.com did not change the actual reservation at the hotel). There was some black mold on the ceiling above the tub/shower and the room had a slightly musty smell, like a damp basement. Our room refrigerator was not working upon arrival and the hotel had to send up a maintenance person to get it to work. We discovered there was a big cultural conference (NJ/NY VSNA Indian conference) taking place during our stay. No issues with the cultural conference however with so many people mingling about in the lobby and hallways we felt like we were intruding on a private event and that was uncomfortable. We did not feel like we should walk around the hotel and stayed in our room. It would have been nice if I was told about the conference at the time of booking.
Lobby is good. The event we attended is at the same building so staying at this hotel location made sense Got a wrong room. I requested for double queen bed but was given single king. So a family of 4 is sharing a single bed. No effort is made to help the situation. I even tried to ask if there is something she can do. I got a big 'NO'. However, the couple after us the a double queen bed. The door going out into the veranda is broken so we have to turn on the heater.
No breakfast available
