“Hard to Beat This One!”
Reviewed 13 September 2005

OK so it's a Courtyard Marriott, but it delivers on customer service and facilities big time. Room was spacious with normal amenities. Big bar downstairs with quick-to-serve staff. The breakfast bar staff even accomodated with perfectly poached eggs! Great for Longwood Gardens or Winterthur visitors. We'll go back.

Reviewed 23 August 2005

This hotel is located near the University of DE campus in Newark DE. It is a new hotel (less than one year old at the time of our stay in June 2005) and provides an exceptional room for the money. Our room was very well appointed, spotless and very comfortable. The in-room hi-speed internet worked great once I figured out how to use it. The facilty includes a small fitness center which we did not use, along with an indoor pool and hot tub. Both pool and hot tub were a bit small, but very clean and well maintained. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning, which offered a wide variety of cooked breakfast items, as well as cereal and fruit. The buffet was short-staffed the morning we ate, but the service was friendly and helpful. Only two nits are information we were given about the buffet when we booked (I was told children under 12 eat free - they don't, but they do eat for less), and actually finding the property. We arrived at night, and if you blinked you would miss the small sign directing you to the hotel...so keep your eyes open! Great place to stay.

Stayed at this new hotel for several days in Dec. 2005. Immediately noticed how the staff was very cordial for the entire stay and always ready to help. Rooms are large with very comfortable bedding. The same as is found at Marriott. Breakfast buffet is $8.95 and has a good selection. As with most newer hotels, the pool is smallish but I believe is 5 feet deep at one end. There is also a hot-tub and exercise room.
Parking is plentiful and free. Close to the hotel are drug and grocery stores and downtown Newark is about a 5 minute drive. Also available at this hotel are washing machines and dryers with complimentary detergent and softener. I certainly would recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
