“Nicely renovated hotel with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The exterior of the hotel looks like a castle, the lobby and the room that I stayed in was nice. The staff there was friendly. There was a complimentary bottle of water on the first night, however not for the second night. One complaint is the bathtub, the water doesn't seem to drain very well. The water accumulates in the bathtub, but then drains after a few minutes. I took a few showers and it happened every time. Also, there was paper in my room but no pen which was funny. The speed of the in-room Wi-Fi is pretty good though.

Why when u stay in the cheap hotels do you get free WiFi most of the time, yet stay at a nice place they charge a per day fee? They can feed you breakfast, provide drinks and appetizers, but can't afford wireless Internet?

This hotel is worth a trip from anywhere and can stand as a destination on its own! It could be transported to any classy resort locale and hold its own with five-star properties – in terms of its glorious newly-renovated facility, its décor, its beds, its health club/swimming pool/hot tub, its food, its amenities, its service, its club lounge, and – most of all – without exception - its caring, professional, and efficient staff. The management of this hotel is genuinely invested in you coming away with a top drawer experience, personalized to meet your specific needs – and you surely do!

The outside of this magical oasis is designed to resemble a real castle and, rightly so, because, inside, every guest is treated like royalty! Forget spending thousands of dollars on airfare to far flung places in search of a retreat from the world. A few hours in, and you really do feel as if you are on a vacation at a fancy resort! Actually, the moment you enter the stunning lobby with the vaulted ceilings and the classic (and classy) décor combining subtle earth-tones, you feel transported.

Completely new inside – newly renovated and sparkling clean – the property is gorgeous, impressive and one never – not even for a moment - feels as if one is at a cookie-cutter copy of any standard chain hotel. The beds, along with everything else, are brand new – top-of-the-line, super sensational quality mattresses! Most importantly, the sense one frequently has in hotels of feeling like one needs to wipe everything down with disinfectant – we all know that feeling - is totally and entirely absent – everything is immaculate.

The health club is awesome – with every kind of equipment - and overseen by staff ready to assist you in every way. It is directly adjacent to the #1 thing of all: the unbelievably extraordinary, giant swimming pool and phenomenal (the best!) hot tub. Outstanding, awesome! Do not miss the hot tub – oversized, freeform, hot, hot, hot, churning, clean, and connected to a cool pool! Housed in a high ceilinged, atrium-like, two story area with transom-like, paned windows and scrupulously maintained, the feeling one gets - again - is truly identical to that which one would have at a faraway resort or at a five-star boutique hotel in some warm, tropical destination.

You will be truly hard pressed to find the type of hotel experience dollar-for-dollar - or even for far more money - that you will find at this Sheraton in Parsippany, New Jersey. Again, it is really worth a trip from anywhere as it can stand as a destination on its own for a short and restorative getaway!

Room Tip: It is so worth it to pay a little extra when booking to be on the club floor where you have access t...

Several common threads in other comments could be the basis of my comments: Bathrooms too small, no towel rack, etc., but to be perfectly honest, the room was nice, and being a corner room on a higher floor with windows on two walls, it was a bright and pleasant place to be. Also pleasant were the grounds. The landscaping was nice, and the property had good curb appeal.

The lobby and common areas were relatively clean and nice, but due to a large wedding, the atmosphere was extremely chaotic. I can’t blame the hotel for the obliviousness, rudeness, and stupidity of other guests, but I do expect the staff to create an environment where those negative experiences are kept to a minimum. For example: there needed to be some traffic control at the drop off area as so many of the wedding’s guests blocked the entire area with their vehicles…then blocked the front doors as they just stood there in another world. Other examples: In the lobby, we were confronted with children running around unsupervised, people eating meals in the check-in area, loitering in every nook and cranny, etc. I’m not sure how to design an elevator system to cope with a large number of people oblivious to proper behavior in hotels, but since this hotel seems to cater to such large events, they need to figure it out! (Example: It often took several minutes to get up to our floor as oblivious guests piled on to elevators that were going up, when they wanted to go down! This happened over and over! ) We did not avail ourselves of any other amenities such as the pool, etc due 100% to our observations of the other guests. Marshalling of unruly crowds of guests is, in my opinion, a proper function of hotel staff. After the event was over, and all those guests evacuated, there was an instant improvement to the overall experience, but of course it was our last day, too!

Bottom line: This is a hotel with lots of potential, but do beware of large events that can ruin your stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room!

The Hotel has a majestic look to it. The exterior has an old European style. There is a lake out back also. As a joke I did ask the concierge if anybody fishes in there. You cannot walk anywhere. Any stores or places to eat must be reached by car. The bottles of water in your room are not free. There isnt any WI-FI in the rooms. You have to go to the lobby. Or you have to pay to have WI-FI access in your room.
At 8:30 in the morning there is loud knocking at the door,i ask (from the bed)who is it? no answer, More knocking! I raise my voice,"who is it?" no answer. More continuous knocking. Then I yell! what is it? On the door knob from the inside you can turn a little sign to indicate that you do not wish to be disturbed. It was actually funny I said to myself Do they really expect us to be out of the room so early? The next day I made sure that the sign was placed outside the paper one But then the one that you activate from inside your room on the door knob. The next morning at 9:30 am many knocks at the door."Really"?
If you plan on going to New York by train do not take the nearby stations, I repeat do not at any costs use them. There is a train station nearby in Denville and Morristown and I believe Mt Tabor A round trip ticket for two adults at Morristown station or maybe it was Mt Tabor I dont remember exactly But they are both close so the price is probably the same. But my point is We went to the machine to print out two adult round trip tickets. The price? $56 dollars. That is too much. If you have the money fine. But if you have a rental car drive to Glen Ridge or Bloomfield (write this down) Yes these stations are not nearby But you will save. We went to the Glen Ridge Train Station and we bought two adult round trip tickets to New York City for $24. The Bloomfield Station is on Lackawanna Plaza and the Glen Ridge Train Station is on Ridgewood Avenue. Even driving all the way to these two towns you will not lose money with gas. Dont spend $56 dollars when you can spend half that.

We ended up making an unexpected stop here when the weather made it clear our drive from New York to DC would be arduous.

What a nice surprise! The staff was really lovely and the rooms were very comfortable. The man who checked us in happily upgraded us to the Club Level when he saw we were Starwood Gold members.

Even my 12-year-old son commented on how nice the staff were (after spending a few nights at the W in Union Square, apparently this was noticeable to us all). The W folks could take a few lessons from the Sheraton Parsippany employees.

I'm not sure our travels will take us this way again. But I would stay at this hotel in a heartbeat.
