Everyone is right, this hotel is in a great location, near airport and Outlet Mall; it's also not to far from the Prudential Centre. We were coming to Newark to go to a concert and to spend sometime in New York City, we were there 3 nights. .
Going into the city; honestly you can definitely get closer hotels, but not for the great rate and service we got; The shuttle will take you anywhere within a 5 mile radius which includes the Elizabeth train station; where your a quick 30 minute ride right to down town. The cost each way is $6.50 if you do it on your phone; if you buy on the train they charge you an extra $5 per person/per way. If you call for the shuttle on your way back and tell them what time the train comes back they will meet you there - which honestly is very good late at night as the station is not in the best area; but safe enough. Special thanks to Michael, Jineen, and Alvin for taking such good care of us shuttling us back and forth and giving us great tips along the way.
The hotel is new; so the rooms, lobby, restaurant, and other areas look great and have that freshness to them. The staff are still learning a bit; but go out of their way to help. Front desk staff Brinnette is quite the "fire cracker" and her sense of humour is infectious - she also will go out of your way to make your stay great. When you arrive there is a managers welcome of drinks and a snack (you get one free drink and a light snack); which was a nice touch and if you want to get any tips on what to eat from the restaurant just ask Addy behind the bar she knows what's great. Breakfast cannot be beat: omelettes, French toast, pancakes to order, buffet, fruit, breads, Danish, coffee and juice, etc. The staff in the kitchen work hard to get the food out fast and hot and good too.
The only area that didn't meet the hotels high standards for me was the pool/jacuzzi area - not only are both small - they were both quite cool and the chemicals in them a bit strong - but got better after I mentioned it to the staff. Also watch the irons in the room; for some reason they are much hotter than the setting says; as my husbands pants can attest to.
We had the chance to meet Jeff the Assistant General Manager; who is doing a great job getting everyone to work as a team to give the customer the best experience possible. I even heard he jumped in and did dishes when one morning got a little crazy at breakfast; now that's a sign of a good manager.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone. If we're in the area again, we will be back.
