This is an airport hotel close to New York !!! Please understand that airport noise and a "certain" New York service and price has to be expected! This said, here's my experience:
- the shuttle picked me up at EWR after only 5 minutes waiting. Later on, I was told that they run around the clock at least every half hour
- the internet was fast with great reception (as HHonor, I didn't pay, but even the normal rate was pretty good for an airport hotel)
- My room was big and faced away from the airport. I had very little noice!
- I liked both bed (big + many pillows) and shower (a little bit old, but good)
- The fitness center has free weights, which I don't see often. Big PLUS!
- The breakfast buffet was HUGE and really good. A fresh omlette was made just like I wanted and I was served more food than I could eat!
- I was able to leave my suitcases a little bit longer by the front desk
- Late check-out as Hhonor member went well
- Parking! Just to drop off bags requires a parking pass and with multiple entries, this could get expensive. Be aware of this and the front desk will help - they helped me very well!
- Walls are thin! My neighbors were really quite and I could still hear them talking!
- There's nothing around the hotel. Don't expect to run over to McDs for breakfast!
- I had a GPS and found the hotel with ease, with a map though...
- The room set-up was a little strange with the TV towards the corner and a mirror in front of the bed - I would have liked the TV in front of the bed...
- Some things could be renovated, but nothing compared to certain other EWR hotels...
- The fitness center machines were not the newest
Overall, I received a great Hhonors service for a fantastic price (SkyMiles redemption) and for this I have to give the "excellent" mark. Would I have had to pay the regular price without the Hhonors benefits - hmm, I might not rate this hotel so high...
