“Very comfortable room, small bar/bistro on premises”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

A large group of us stayed here prior to a cruise. The exterior of the grounds were well kept, the front desk was well staffed and the lobby was very clean. All of us were able to be checked in quickly and our rooms assigned. After were got our room assignment, my wife and I took our luggage to our room. We were surprised how spacious and clean in was. Well stocked with amenities. Very comfortable bed. Small couch and table as well as dresser and desk with chair. Fairly nice view. The lobby included a large area where guests could sit and talk as well as couches that were set in front of a large TV. Also in the lobby was The Bistro, which was a small bar/cafe. One person usually manned The Bistro, unless it got busy and then help would be called to help take orders and man the cash register. The Bistro had several tables and couch/booths to accommodate a fairly large crowd. Several restaurants were located within walking distance as well as a huge mall where you could probably get just about anything you forgot for your trip. Only complaint was that we added $25 to our room charge for breakfast before we arrived and it turns out that it would probably have cost us a little bit less if we had just ordered from the menu. Our ship was delayed so we couldn't get on until 5 o'clock and check out time was noon. They graciously allowed us to leave our luggage in a conference room until our bus arrived at 5 and we spent some of that time at the nearby mall. The staff was very friendly, very helpful and very courteous.

We stayed for a night on our way back from our honeymoon. We had an overnight layover in Newark and it was convenient. I was most impressed with Chris at the Front Desk though, the gentleman working Sunday morning, 11/3. We were at the airport when I realized I thought I had lost my (new) wedding ring. My husband got on the phone with him and he immediately dropped everything, went up to the room with security and scoured it, reporting only having found one bobby pin we left behind. He showed immediate empathy and took action. Turns out we had it, but we so appreciate his willingness to help us. Thank you, Chris!!! -Kendal & Alex Young

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. They reserved car service for us when we checked in for our trip to the cruise port in Bayonne for the following morning.
The room itself was clean, quiet and spacious. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed watching the incoming planes from our window. It was nice having the Bistro in the lobby, the food was very good and there was a good variety of menu choices. The warm LARGE chocolate chip cookie with ice cream looked so good! We liked the seating area or "pods" as we called them in the lobby area with the individual tv screen and remote in each one. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will stay here again next year.

The new Courtyards are great. I especially love the Bistro which I believe is open 24/7. They have decent food, Starbucks coffee and top shelf liquors and beers. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. They also have an airport shuttle that leaves every 30 minutes. This is basically an airport hotel as there isn't much to do once you venture away from the hotel other than the outlet mall across the street, a Ruby Tuesdays and an IHOP right next to the hotel. I stayed here for business so I didn't have a chance to get out much but as I mentioned the surrounding area is mostly undesirable. I would recommend this hotel if you need to be close to Newark airport. I would stay here again.

We stayed there in September for one night. The hotel is close to the airport and the mall. The room was clean and quite. The airport shuttle runs only every 30 minutes. I think this is to less for a airport hotel. The shuttle was in a bad shape and was not a good first impression. The hotel and the rooms are in good shape. But compare with other courtyards the service could be better.

优点:10月1日--3日,我住了两天,因为要在新泽西办事,而第三天就要坐飞机,所以选择了这家酒店。总的来说,它有“courtyard"连锁的一贯品质:性价比很高;酒店设施一流,而且很新,房间也很大;一步之遥就是新泽西的Jersey Gardens outlet mall,逛逛也是很不错的;店员服务态度很好,入住手续很快,说明事先准备得不错;周围环境有点荒凉,但很安全。
缺点:房间里能听到飞机声;很奇怪没有冰箱;交通有点不方便。
总的评价:如果在新泽西办事,或想在上飞机前逛逛Jersey Gardens outlet mall,短期住几天,那么这家酒店就是非常合适的。This hotel is particularly suitable if you arrive at Newark airport and want to visit the Jersey Gardens outlet mall。

My husband and I stayed for one evening due to an early flight out of Newark airport The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff were very nice on check in and check out. They have a courtesy van drop off and pick up is at P4, so you do have to use the airport tram system to get to your terminal. We used the park & fly plan which was a very good deal.
