“Great Business Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I stayed in this hotel while doing business in Newark. It was in close proximity to the federal courthouse. Overall this hotel was great. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room was very nice. I had an issue which management addressed. What was great was the follow up from management, that you rarely get from hotel management at other hotels. I used their shuttle service to and from the hotel which was wonderful. I will have to travel more to Newark for work and I think I will always choose this hotel for my future stays.

New York transit is only about a 10 minute walk and then another 20 minute ride into Penn Station, NYC. It is so hard to find a hotel in NYC that one can afford but this one filled the bill. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Just what you would expect from a Courtyard Hotel. There didn't seem to be anything decent with regards to restaurants in the local area so I think NYC is a good choice. Round trip ticket on NJ Transit runs around $10.00

Room Tip: If you drive your car there, they charge you $21.00 for the night. You go inside and get your ticke...

A week before my stay, I received an email from the manager welcoming me along with parking instructions as well as information on the shuttle. Staff at the front desk as well as the bistro were friendly and the lounge area is really welcoming. Rooms were really nice and large.
Just be careful, the shuttle cost 25.00 and its only a 5 minute ride.

First be aware that the airport shuttle runs only once an hour. As of now it departs the Hotel Shuttle area P4 at 40 minutes after each hour. Hotel check-in was friendly, and fast. Beautiful lobby, bar and dinning area. The lobby is located on the second floor. Elevators and hotel room doors are accesible by your key card. Rooms are very nice, large bed, flat screen TV, free wifi, nice bathroom which was spotless. There is a Bistro and bar on the lobby level, light meals can be purchased and the one I had for dinner was very good. Check-out was also quick and the shuttle left right on time, which as of this review on the hour. The street that the hotel is located on is not an area that I would recommend walking around at night, this street may be going through redevelopement, but at this time it is a distressed sight to see.

Room Tip: Try and get a room that does not face Broad Street

I had the pleasure in staying at the new "Coutyard" hotel in Downtown Newark. The Hotel is well laid out, very nice spacious room, and a wonderful staff. I checked in Friday afternoon. I decided to take the train into NYC. The Front Desk staff told be the route, advised me on where to go, etc. At one point, I left my cell phone charger @ home, and the girl at the Front desk lent me hers!

Room Tip: I would suggest that you ask for a room facing the Prudential Arena. The view won't be great, b...

Check in was a breeze. The hotel is new and very nice. The rooms are very nice as well. Fridge, coffee maker, and iPod docking station in the room. I placed an order from the Bistro and the server was friendly and accommodating because I needed my smoothie to be non-dairy. One thing to note is you do have to walk out of the parking garage and around the corner to the hotel but it takes about 2 minutes. There is no inside bridge connecting the hotel and parking garage. I called for extra pillows and a blanket and it was delivered right away. Housekeeping staff was very nice as well.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room and not a street view. Newark never sleeps and you will hear outside noise al...

I stayed here just one night in mid-January 2013 as a stopover in between flights from Berlin to Vail. The Courtyard offers an airport shuttle to EWR, which I believe runs once an hour, leaving the hotel on the hour. I was lucky and didn't have to wait long for pickup at the airport. Upon arrival at the hotel I was welcomed with a scratch-off card and won a free item from the small food shop and chose a $9 sandwich. The check-in guy was friendly and efficient. My room was spacious, modern and clean and had a coffee maker and free wifi, which worked without a hitch. After a quick nap I walked to Newark Penn Station to take a Path train into Manhattan ($4.50 roundtrip, 45 minutes each way). The station is about six blocks away (12-minute walk). Leaving the hotel I felt like I was the only white guy among about a hundred people on the main street, but after I turned the corner and went towards the sports arena, it was again a different world with a typical city mix. Downtown Newark is kind of boring with a poor selection of retail establishments, but it was nice to be so close to the Path train and not have to pay at least $25 to take the other trains into NYC. There was no free breakfast, but there is free coffee in the lobby as well as Internet. The check-out woman on Sunday wasn't as friendly as the guy, but it was fast and problem-free, just like check-in. I will probably stay here again in the future.
