An amazing experience

Great little neighborhood with nice restaurants. Across the street from the PATH train making it super convenient for getting to NYC, Amtrak, EWR. Hotel is very nice with good grab-and-go breakfast. I look forward to visiting again in a couple weeks.

It was perfect for us!

Nice

Great location, very clean and friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely stay there again.

The customer service is exceptional. The front desk staff is very friendly. I also love the fact that the hotel is across the street from the Path Train Station.

I love this hotel, this is my second stay and the rates are always affordable, the property is always well maintained and the staff is great.

The shuttle wasn’t on time, and I almost died on the way to the airport. The driver didn’t care about my life.

THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFULL, PLEASANT AND PROFESSIONAL. THE FOOD WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING AND OUTSIDE OF YOGURT AND FRUIT COULD NOT EAT THE FOOD PREPARED FOR BREAKFAST

It was close to my son's location, the breakfast selection was excellent, and the staff was very accommodating

We have a good time at the hotel. We got a nice and clean room

Hotel was actually really nice. The room was well appointed if small. The soap/moisturizers were really high quality Breakfast was lovely and most of the staff was great. It's hard as a regular Marriott patron to go to any other hotel - one word of advice would be to train your desk staff in professionalism. When I arrived, there were five of your associates chatting and they only stopped talking and joking around when I had already been standing there waiting to checkin. Then, they left one poor woman all alone at the desk, and she had to check us in AND man the phones, which she was clearly ill trained to juggle. It felt disorganized and lacked polish, unlike my Marriott experiences.

Great hotel within walking distance of Red Bull Arena. Rooms spacious, complete kitchen, with everything you need to cook and eat a meal. Top notch breakfast, way better than most hotels. Only drawback is $223 per night (includes parking and tax).

The pictures and description looked great but upon arriving, it was an obvious mistake in choosing this hotel. The hotel is dirty and looked like poor workmanship and maintenance throughout. The desk staff checking is in was rude and not very helpful with questions that we had. The airport shuttle runs very limited hours and we ended up paying for a Lyft due to an 8am flight as the shuttle didn’t start until 7am. We did take the shuttle to the hotel de the airport and the driver was very kind and helpful! Breakfast was decent and the train station into NYC close by, but this hotel should be no higher than a two star.
