The Westin Governor Morris, Morristown
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Morristown
Reviewed 2 December 2013

I've had a string of bad luck with hotels this year, but the Westin Governor Morris was just about perfect! The Governor Morris is a gracious old-style convention/event hotel built in the early 1960s, with lots of space in the lobby, restaurant and wine bar to sit and chat with family and friends if you are traveling with a large group. Everything has been updated recently in the public areas and rooms in peaceful, relaxing colors that fit with the hotel's original colonial design and the mountain scenery around Morristown. I love Westin's Heavenly Bed and other "heavenly" amenities, as well as the Tazo teas and Starbucks coffees available in our room. Staff members were very patient and helpful, advising us on local attractions and making sure that everyone in our group was assigned a room on the same floor. I do wish that there was a dining option in the hotel that was a little less upscale than the Blue Morel, since the hotel is in a residential area and there aren't any other restaurants in the immediate vicinity, but there is always room service, and there are many great restaurants a few minutes away in Morristown. I will definitely return!

Stayed for just one night while in town on business. Lobby and surrounding area was beautiful. Rooms were adequate and the restaurant on property was expensive but phenomenal. The gym was a bit small and couldn't get the elevator music to stop playing, but i've certainly been in worse hotel gyms.

These amazing men, Rommel, the Front Supervisor, and Brandon and Christian, front desk agents, were at every turn and had everything handled. The barista at the coffee bar, who had a line and sometimes impatient people, was always smiling and pleasant. The hotel of course is beautiful and rooms clean. But HOSPITALITY is what is going on here. Amazing.
You will feel welcomed each time you walk in to the lobby, and when you leave you will feel like you are leaving friends.
I always say it's the little things. Truly these amazing young men are on their game, but more than that, they care about and enjoy what they do. This hotel is by far the best experience I have had because of them.

I recently stayed at the Westin for a wedding nearby. Our check in and check out were both quick and easy. The room was spacious and the beds were amazing. We had a room with two double beds and we had lots of room and it was very clean. My only complaint is that while there were plenty of hand towels and wash cloth, there was only on full sized towel in the room..Not a big deal to ask for an extra, but a little weird that there was only one in a room with 2 beds and 2 guests. Otherwise, great service, shuttle, and overall experience.

What a wonderful staff !!! We have stayed so many places and this staff was so great. I observed how each staff member made every single person feel welcome and important. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms comfortable, and clean. Great restaurant with wine bar in the lobby, coffee barista, in the lobby, with really good coffee to purchase. Very special.

I have stayed here many times. Management is committed to improvement. Most rooms are nicely renovated. The rooms are large with "heavenly" bed. Hallway noise sometimes a problem but generally quiet. The air-conditioning units in the rooms are a bit nosy when running. The bathrooms are a bit small with shower heads in need of work. The restaurant Blue Morel in the hotel is excellent with large wine list (also many choices by the glass). The new fitness center (now located off the lobby) is a big improvement with new aerobic machines and adequate assortment of free weights. Newspapers are all free. The internet worked very well across many devices. The shuttle service is great for local trips (to downtown Morristown). The staff from reception to bell hop were all very nice.

We recently experience an overnight stay for a wedding we attended and were very pleased from check-in to check-out. Our request for a late check-out and early check-in made our stay much less rushed and more pleasant. It also enabled us to spend more time with friends also attending the wedding.
