“Excellent stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2010

We reserved a room via the CP website for a 7 day pleasure visit to NJ at this hotel after seeing favorable reviews here on TripAdvisor. The hotel is located about 1 mile south of exit 2B off I-287. We were traveling with our 1 year old daughter and they were very accommodating to our needs, putting a mini fridge in the room so we could keep her food and supplies cold, and also providing a crib for her in the room. The hotel offers free WiFi internet access. The rooms were spacious, clean, quiet (for the most part), and comfortable. The hotel staff was very helpful. We were impressed that the room service folks even made our daughter's crib every day and posed her animals for her in the crib, a nice touch. There is a nice 24 hour diner (Plaza Diner) across the street, as well as a coin laundry. Up the road within a mile there's a post office and a Wal-Mart. We will definitely stay there again when we return to the area.

Hotel is nice and well maintained if perhaps a bit garish. Rooms are large and comfortable. What makes it a real standout is the staff. From check in to check out they made it clear that they were glad I was there and not elsewhere. They will pick you up at the airport or train station and take you back. It is convenient to transportation to NY or Philly.

If you value peace and quiet this is not the place to be. I stayed here once several years ago when it was a Clarion and forgot just how bad it is.

Arrived late and there was a racket next door. Should have asked for another room but got the front desk to shut them up. Then, the next night, same people again making a racket. Front desk again took action, but that was it for sleep after just about 3 hours. You could also hear doors slamming in the halls and even just the normal volume conversations from the room on the other side.

The front desk staff is very nice, but as mentioned elsewhere the restaurant is painfully slow even when not busy. Had the same problem when it was Clarion. Ate the free breakfast the first morning, then skipped it the second.

Although the rooms are large, this place needs to be torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. I've stayed in Holiday Inn Expresses that are far superior. Give this a miss.

Typical Crowne Plaza, nice lobby and friendly efficient service. Did receive wrong directions to Johnson & Johnson which caused a great deal of extra driving and made me close to being late for an appointment. This is a frustration that you should not have when staying in a unfamiliar local. Everything else was normal Crowne Plaza.

We were there visiting our son and his family. The hotel is about 30 or so minutes from Newark Airport. Easy drive down to the hotel. Check in was a breeze. Front desk was nice and efficient. Room was very nice, large and clean. Beds were great. Hotel does seem to be a little dark and a tad bit dated in the public areas. Nonetheless still a nice place.
The hotel restaurant was horrible. The food wasn't good and the prices were worse. It took me more than 30 minutes to get a simple omelette and there were only 3 other occupied tables.
I will definitely recommend the hotel, but make sure you go somewhere else to eat.

Excellent value! The hotel is located close to the Rutgers campus and New Jersey Transit stations. This is one of the best hotels in the Edison/New Brunswick area that lives up to the Crowne Plaza brand. The staff was very helpful with early check-in, directions, requests. The room was spacious and comfortable with all of the expected amenities. The hotel has a courtesy shuttle. The area is safe and visitor friendly.

Thankfully the front desk staff... namely George and Eric were so friendly, professional and accommodating - as the restaurant deflected a lot of their hard work due to appauling food/prices. I am not a picky eater by any stretch but this was the first time I couldphysically not eat my soup. It took us 2 time sto realize that Christies was not going to be where we eat. The prices were outrageous and virtually 8/10 dishes were seafood (which I love but its not for every one). The staff at the restaurant were fantastic and very understanding with the meal being inedible. They were friendly, attentive and helpful.
Thank Goodness for the Shuttle service as Carlos is a huge asset to the hotel with his charm, professionalism, and impecable timing. We would go to Menlo Mall (8min drive) shop all day and return to the hotel, only to turn aruond and go back to the mall to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. The train is perfect as that's with in the 5 mile complimentary shuttle range and for 1st time passengers we made out well with the guidance and assistance fromt he front desk.
The original room we were assigned had an ajoining door, was about 15 rooms down from the elevator and had no safe. My mum had recently had knee surgery and found the distance, along iwth being unsettled about the safe too much. Upon speaking with the front desk, they were able to a ccommodate us in an alternate room that was 2 doors from the elevator, without an ajoining door and advised that they had a safety deposit behind the desk. This worked out perfect for remainder of our stay!
Thank goodness for the staff as they werre the main contributing factor to our staying at The Crowne Plaza Edison. Thank you so much!
