“no qualms about staying here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2005

stayed here 7/13 & 7/14. Check-in was fast. Parking lot had police patrolling when I arrived first night; security patrolling when I arrived 2nd night. (I asked front desk if there was any reason to worry if my car would be there when I awoke since hotel is directly on Rt. 1; they said not to worry.) Proceeded to room but heard water running so thought someone was already in room. However, first room assigned had a problem with the toilet - every 20 seconds the toilet would run for 10 seconds then shut off... then cycle on again in 20 more seconds! Called down to the front desk; they sent a bellhop with a key to 2nd room. Upon entering 2nd room, A/C fan was noisy so went back to the front desk and requested a quiet room. (Everything else in room was in order, looked clean and well groomed, with an inviting bed - just the A/C was too loud.)

Front desk supervisor assigned me a suite on the executive floor - no running toilets or noisy A/C here! Ate in steakhouse on premise; friendly service and good food for reasonable (for NJ) prices. SHERATON beds are very comfortable (sign says they did a $2M upgrade on their bedding - and it shows). After booking 1 night, decided to stay in area so booked another night with no qualms about staying at this hotel.

Free internet access (wireless in rooms and 2 computers near the front desk in the lobby). Two other restaurants available on premise (Italian and Cafe) as well as a bar. Didn't use other facilities.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2005

I recently stayed at the Sheraton Woodbridge which is officially located in Iselin, NJ. I made my reservations through Hotwire. What a great place to stay. The hotel is beautiful and clean. The rooms are not only excellent but with the new sleeper beds they are as comfortable as they could possibly be. There is a large regional mall across the street and enough restaurants to choose from no matter what type of food you are looking for. The staff was extremely helpful and very customer service oriented. I went to NYC for a day and took the train which is only about 1.5 miles away and costs only $10.25 RT for the 40 minute trip and drops you off at Penn Station in midtown Manhattan. The hotel provides free shuttle service to and from the train station. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for comfort and convenience.

After many years at this hotel I have seen some poor staff that is true but 90% of the time they are wonderful, polite and very helpful. Any complaints result in compensation by the hotel in a variety of ways. The
best part of the Sheraton is Allen's Restaurant with Chef Franco. He is by far and away the most talented chef in the country. His staff is also beyond compare and I highly reccommend any visit to the Sheraton in-
clude dinner at Allen's. The Woodbridge Steakhouse is staffed with bartenders with pizzaz that are well versed in customer service as well. They make the best golden Margarita in New Jersey. I stay there every year, I have stayed in many other hotels in the area and I come back to this one time and again.

Although the pickings are slim in north New Jersey, this is the best hotel there -- the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds are great, the room service is very good, and club level lounge is very nice. I can't rave about the front desk staff, but I think it's more of a northeastern thing.

Accomodations were adequate. However, poor, unhelpful, unknowledgeable, and down right rude staff made my stay unpleasant and hopefully forgetable-since I will never return there and uncourage others to seek accomodations elsewhere.

I have honestly never been spoken to and treated this rudely ever staying in any other hotel.
