Nice, clean hotel. Everything is updated throughout the hotel and very modern looking. Friendly, informative staff. I will stay here every time I head east from now on! I booked my hotel through trip adviser. Maybe I didn't pay attention while booking, but upon arrival and inquiring on cancellation policies, I learned I was booked through expedia. I have always...

I had been here when it was a Holiday Inn and it has been updated in a nice way. The lobby has been made more chic and the room was nicely appointed. I just wish there had been an elevator to the second floor because we had lots of luggage. The check in at 5:30 PM on a Sunday was... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a couple of days. We had to visit some clients and we headed to some NY action afterwards. The hotel has a pretty good location. They have a supermarket right across the street. We did not rent a car for our stay. We used the hotel's shuttle service which was very... More

Clean and comfortable. Easy access. But a little over priced at times. Especially if you book direct. Better to book through a 3rd party service. It's really close to the highway. So if you are a light sleeper. I wouldn't recommend staying here. Unless you request a room near the lobby on the front side of the building opposite of... More

This was my second visit to this hotel. Unfortunately, I had to stay in the area for an sad event but I am glad I was able to stay here. It is an old hotel that was redone and all the rooms are lovely. My sister stayed with me and was also quite impressed. Rooms have a pleasant color scheme... More

My family and I were given vouchers to the Kenilworth due to all the storms in Newark NJ this summer, our flight home was cancelled after coming home internationally. They actually went to get another van to hold all the folks who were bumped. The lady at the front desk (Italian lady with a top knot) was wonderful and polite... More

I love the Kenilworth. Located right if the Garden State Parkway exit 137. All rooms redone. Very well appointed. Fridge and microwave in every room. Unfortunately no elevators, but from what management tells me, coming soon. Highly recommend.

Hotel was very comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly and extremely helpful to me traveling alone with three small children. There is an indoor playpark right across the parking lot (kidz village) so it was the perfect place for us to be "stuck" waiting (missed connecting flight). Kenilworth hotel made a stressful trip a lot more relaxing and enjoyable!
