Stayed at this property twice in May, on arrival & upon departure. Very convenient to EWR with very nice shuttle drivers. Rooms were a little dated but was up to the standards of US Renaissance properties. The Concierge lounge serves a very nice breakfast and cocktails are complimentary. Didn't try the restaurants or use the pool (looked nice) or gym.... More

This hotel is very nice, they do not have complementary wifi, no free local calls. Good shuttle service to and from Newark Airport, clean and for most part friendly staff. The bar restaurant food was very good and the drinks were excellent.

While Elizabeth doesn't appear to be the brightest, most beautiful spot on the east coast. However, the Renaissance is a gem! With consistently high quality service at the front desk to some of the most comfortable beds, this hotel packs a punch! The onsite restaurant has FANTASTIC food, and the "frequent flier" lounge is the perfect spot to overlook Manhattan,... More

This is the best airport hotel at EWR. I've stayed in this hotel twice. Once a year or two ago, and once this week. It is completely renovated, feels very new. Everything is very new, clean, crisp. Has convenient shuttle to EWR that runs every 15 minutes. And rare among airport hotels, it has a *real* restaurant! Apparently it's one... More

This was my second time at this hotel but it might be my last, not sure yet. The bathrooms need to be upgraded and cleaned much better. The glasses in our bathroom had haven't been cleaned in a while and the tile needed a major cleaning. Even the power receptacle was disgusting. The only reason would be because it has... More

Used some Rewards points to book an overnighter between landing late in evening and heading over to visit friends for the weekend. Nice welcome from front desk, quickly up to my room. Comfortable bed (as always!), nice amenities. Breakfast was great - the waitress was very helpful in checking that I had everything, and wasn't charged for full buffet as... More

This hotel is very beautiful and clean. The room included a refrigerator. however, there's no microwave. so if you're going to be there for a while remember there's no place to warm your left over. Other than that everything was excellent.

Very nice inside--so much so it's a little surprising. Room was clean, comfy and relatively quiet (heard one trucker horn and a siren during night, but that's all). We ate in the bar and the service was extremely professional, quick, and knowledgeable. We took both entree suggestions from our waiter (cioppino, and shrimp with angiolotti pasta) and both were excellent.... More

Very nice property with a great pool and workout space. This was a very pleasant surprise as the rooms were up to date and clean. Very close to airport with an on time and nice shuttle. The entrance is above the norm. I plan to return next time my business takes me to Newark.
