Good comfortable beds. Very clean and spotless bathroom. Good security and friendly staff. It is a little expensive and everything is ala carte which adds up to a lot of money. The breakfast was very good but it cost $20.

The hotel was great but it had one major flaw......the outdated AC unit. Let's start with the good stuff first. The receptionists were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean, great location, loved the room bathroom. Now, not to say that the AC didn't work properly, it keep the room cool. Its just that it is a old in-room unit (mine was sitting on some type of huge stand as if it used to be installed in the window and they pulled it inside) - avoid room 327. It was very noisy, ugly and noisy (yes a repeat). It was difficult to take a nap or relax and watch tv, sleep was really an issue. This hotel works in a pinch and if you are a heavy sleeper then it will be excellent. I bit pricey, but reasonable.

I checked in on the app so arrival check in was quick. Room was clean and a descent size. Bed amazingly comfortable. Bathroom was clean and I liked the separate shower/toilet area. Shuttle to airport was on time and friendly.

So my friend and I had a hotel booked for a 4 day and 3 night weekend. We got there at about past 10 PM, and after 45 minutes to an hour later of waiting to check-in, we got to the front desk to be told that our room was CANCELLED! I wasted my time waiting in that line when I could've been looking for another room for the night. Fortunately, I checked online and Courtyard Marriott had a room and I could check-in late after a 9 hour drive to NY really late at night (as in 2 AM). I wanna give a shout-out to Jonathon and Nicole, my heroes. The BEST people in the world right now. They were so kind and wonderful and patient and saved my life. If they didn't help us, my friend and I would probably have to stay the night in NJ in her car. LOVE YOU GUYS <3

My sister and I stayed overnight for a concert. We drove in and arrived a bit early, but they were able to check us into the hotel right away. The parking garage behind the hotel was easy to locate and is connected to both the Prudential Center where which was where our event was taking place and the hotel so we never had to step outside. We grabbed dinner from their bistro which was better than expected; you can eat in their dining area in the lobby or bring the food up to our hotel room which is what we opted for. The room itself was rather spacious; it was clean and was more than suitable for a one night stay. Lastly, but most importantly, the check-in/check-out staff as well as the bistro staff were friendly, helpful, and efficient which is always appreciated and always elevates your overall experience.

Dear "Short Stay" , Thank you for staying with us. We take pride in the convenience of being centralized in the area of Downtown Newark. The proximity of the Prudential is great for our concert goers and our sports fans that choose to stay at the Newark Downtown Courtyard. We appreciate your comments and hope that you return to the hotel, if your travels bring you back to the Newark area.
