This hotel is close to the campus and is very convenient. It has a Starbucks for breakfast and the rooms are spacious and is located in a nice place. Highly recommend if you are visiting the university.

For the price class this is a pretty good hotel. Beds are comfortable, the rooms are quiet(so far at least!), shower has plenty of hot water and water pressure, and surprisingly the french toast is really good. Was a bit disappointed in their latte but it's one of those fancy coffee machines so that wasn't unexpected. Free wifi is crummy,... More

Very nice one night stay overall. Only peculiarity is that they serve breakfast and dinner, but not lunch. Wound up having to order delivered food which made for a pricey lunch. Service staff presented menus from various take out restaurants, which was helpful but strange.

Thanks for your note and I am sorry the demand for lunch at our hotel was almost zero, so we have focused on offering items in our 24 hour market and having a great list of local options. We continue to look at this and hope someday we can have full lunch service, but so far that is not a... More

I love to stay at the Courtyard whenever I am there - and always enjoyed it in the last years. The staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms are comfortable. For the europeans - you can open the windows! :) (at least a bit) And since the serve Starbucks coffee it's even better now!

I was particularly impressed with this Courtyard, which is staffed and associated with the hospitality department at University of Delaware. Great rooms, nice amenities, clean pool, small workout room, and Starbucks cafe.

This place was great but suffered from low amount of air con adjustment. However this was sorted by reception giving me a massive fan. Food and beer are good, facilities fine and staff and location are great. Award winning crab cakes and nice local runs....

While attending a seminar in Newark several friends and I stayed at this hotel. The hotel was clean, staff were very helpful, and the location was very nice.

Bring your own pillows. Otherwise the hotel is great except that it has synthetic sheets. The building is redecorated and the change is positive. The staff at the main desk is great, except for the older man (named Mike or John -- we have forgotten) who is gruff and unfriendly. The parking is tight now that they have taken up... More
