I must first say THANK YOU to Matt Garber (Assistant General Manager) his online communication was impeccable.
I recently stayed at the brand new Courtyard Marriott in Newark. What a nice surprise to find in the middle of the city. The hotel is right in the heart of the city; about 2 blocks away from market street where there's plenty of local shops. Very nice, clean, updated hotel. Some of the reviews may have you concerned with the area. I never felt unsafe during my stay here. However, for this location this place definitely stands out. The area is up and coming.
Brain was extremely friendly and informative during the check in process. Within minutes I was on my way to my room. The room itself was very spacious and well kept. Was very impressed by the size of the room - very large and spacious room, two queen beds with plenty of room to move around and a huge flat screen TV.
The beds were very comfortable and there were nice soft or hard pillows to choose from. The room was well kept and overlooked the main street (Broad Street). I was in room 714.
I had a chance to dine in the restaurant for breakfast. I had French toast which was made to order, with some Starbucks. Off the top of my head I can’t remember the cost, but the quality of the food was excellent, hot and fresh. The staff coffee (Solanlly) brought the food right to my table, with a smile, very courteous and friendly.
There is a free shuttle that can drop/pick-up at Penn Station. If you're planning to return late night to Newark Penn station, I recommend a $7 taxi ride to the hotel. Morning walks to the station from the hotel are fine. Parking at the hotel is not free, which is typical around here.
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling for business or staying a few nights in the city. It's centrally located and you can get a taxi quite easily around the city.
Great job Courtyard!
