I needed a last-minute room for the night before an early meeting at the nearby Merck site. I decided to take a chance and stay at a non-chain hotel, and was very pleasantly surprised by the kenilworth. The property is easily accessed from the Garden State Parkway and has good parking. The rooms are fresh, clean, and everything is recently... More

We booked this hotel for park & fly from Newark Liberty. The hotel is close From Garden State Parkway. The hotel shuttle took us to the airport in 15 minutes. The staff is really friendly and helpful. I had to deal with the front desk manager for a special request and he did everything he could to give a solution... More

Easter wknd (BIGSHOTS MC EVENT) stay at the Kenilworth in NJ, the hotel is very nice and quiet. BUT there is no elevator and that sucks!!! What if I had 10bags & a baby, I would have to make 10 trips. The continenial breakfast pastries were brought from the supermarket. NOT HAPPY :(

Was in north Jersey on a business trip. Had to take a break and meet an elderly relative in Westfield and get her out of the house for the day while her apartment is being painted. Couldn't stay at her place because of the painting. Checking the map, she is in the center of a triangle formed by three surrounding... More

Down for a wedding nearby and was suggested this place since we are not familiar with this area of NJ. All but completely remodeled (there is no lobby or front desk yet)-but the rest is totally top-notch. The rooms are large and spacious, so the bathroom. The king bed we had was heavenly delight to my well traveled bones, large... More

I recently stayed at the Kenilworth as part of the "sleep and fly" program which allowed 4 girls to leave our vehicle for 10 days which was exactly what we needed. The rooms were nice, clean and modern. Also included big bathrooms, WiFi and keurigs. We got on the 4:00 am shuttle for the 6:00am flight we had. We were... More

Zero hot water. Tried to call the front desk to report the lack of hot water - phone didn't work, neither of the two. Half-assed renovations, damaged ceiling tiles walls and fixtures and furniture. These people do not know how to run a hotel. Plus, leaving the parking lot there is a cop that stakes out the driveway because for... More

In process of renovations but a very nice, clean hotel. Wonderful continental breakfast. Nice big grocery store next door. Had trouble with wifi signal. Have to travel a bit for restaurant options which can be time consuming with NJ traffic. I am very picky and was very comfortable here!
