“Visit here 2-3 times a year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2006

This is a well maintained hotel partnered with the University of Delaware Hotel and Restaurant program. When classes are in session, students are actively involved in the operation of the hotel. We stay here several times a year and have always found our room to be very clean and exactly as requested in the reservation. The staff is friendly. The hotel in located on the Laird campus of the University which is northwest of the main campus. You need car at this location to have other food choices other than the cafe in the hotel as there are no restaurants within walking distance.

If you like white table cloth Italian food, check out Vita Nova the student run restaurant in the Trabant University Center which is open when classes are in session. Excellent food and service.

We stayed here for one night over Thanksgiving weekend. We had two rooms one for my husband, young son and I and the other for my parents. I agree with others that the rooms and the hotel in general were very clean and the staff was courtious. However, I had asked for a crib when I reserved and even at check in I was told that our crib should be in our room. When we entered the room there was no crib. We told the front desk and the receptionist said that he can't help us. He just relayed the information. Our son ended up sharing the bed with us.
The next day over breakfast, they were short staffed and it was not a pleasant experience. They were out of juice, fruits, bread and I had to wait 10 minutes for the ommelettes to be made. Not impressed with the food. The one lady who was working the tables never brought us coffee or tea or juice or anything else but she brought us our bill very quickly.

The exercise room is good but the pool is very small and the water was cold.

Staying here wasn't bad but don't expect much.

OK so it's a Courtyard Marriott, but it delivers on customer service and facilities big time. Room was spacious with normal amenities. Big bar downstairs with quick-to-serve staff. The breakfast bar staff even accomodated with perfectly poached eggs! Great for Longwood Gardens or Winterthur visitors. We'll go back.

This hotel is located near the University of DE campus in Newark DE. It is a new hotel (less than one year old at the time of our stay in June 2005) and provides an exceptional room for the money. Our room was very well appointed, spotless and very comfortable. The in-room hi-speed internet worked great once I figured out how to use it. The facilty includes a small fitness center which we did not use, along with an indoor pool and hot tub. Both pool and hot tub were a bit small, but very clean and well maintained. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning, which offered a wide variety of cooked breakfast items, as well as cereal and fruit. The buffet was short-staffed the morning we ate, but the service was friendly and helpful. Only two nits are information we were given about the buffet when we booked (I was told children under 12 eat free - they don't, but they do eat for less), and actually finding the property. We arrived at night, and if you blinked you would miss the small sign directing you to the hotel...so keep your eyes open! Great place to stay.

Stayed at this new hotel for several days in Dec. 2005. Immediately noticed how the staff was very cordial for the entire stay and always ready to help. Rooms are large with very comfortable bedding. The same as is found at Marriott. Breakfast buffet is $8.95 and has a good selection. As with most newer hotels, the pool is smallish but I believe is 5 feet deep at one end. There is also a hot-tub and exercise room.
Parking is plentiful and free. Close to the hotel are drug and grocery stores and downtown Newark is about a 5 minute drive. Also available at this hotel are washing machines and dryers with complimentary detergent and softener. I certainly would recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
