Routinely stay here for business in the area. Excellent facility, newly renovated, always friendly staff. Perfect location to campus, downtown and White Clay State Park - especially if you like to run, mtn bike and hike. You can rent a mountain bike downtown for about $25 half day.

I have been here for several times for conferences and other activities. It's a quiet, nice and clean hotel. It's also convenient and close to the main campus of University of Delaware. Prices were not bad.

We have stayed here before while attending a U of DE game. The hotel is very clean and so close to the University. The breakfast, not included, is very delicious. There was quite a nice selection of food. We would highly recommend!

Over the weekend, my family (Harris ) had a gathering at the Courtyard by Marriott in Newark, Delaware. I was part of the decorating and planning committee.

Tired from driving, and not wanting to stay on I95 - I found this gem on the mobile Marriott app. It was less expensive than the roadside hotel and much quieter being on the college campus and not on the road (or by the casino). I was unexpectedly upgraded to a major suite by Candice at the front desk. Also... More

We've stayed here now twice since our daughter is a UDel student. It is well run, very clean and a great place to wind down after walking around campus. We enjoy the bar (go figure) very much. The bartender (an older gent) went totally out of his way to make a dinner reservation for us on a busy Sat night.... More

Rooms were clean and quiet. Lots of electrical outlets for charging all your electronics. Newspapers in the lobby, Mini fridge, coffee maker and iron -- the usual stuff -- in the room. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the bar was decently stocked. The one downer was the lack of any kind of complimentary breakfast. The Starbucks in the... More

Stayed only one night, but would have loved to stay longer. The room was so comfortable and large. We even had a balcony. The room was very clean with plenty of towels. Our biggest surprise was dinner in the lobby. I know what your thinking, but we had crab cakes that were one of the best I ever had.
