We stayed at the Renaissance Newark Airport Hotel after finding that the only flight plan coming back from the Dominican Republic had us staying over a night. I looked at some reviews and didn't see any SPG hotels near the airport so I decided to take another chance on Marriott. There was another Marriott nearby but it seemed to be where everyone rushed to and that's not my scene. Anyways, as we got through Customs we went to the hotel shuttle area where the Shuttle runs every 15 minutes. Sure enough they were on time and friendly. I'm more concerned with the on time part but in no time we checked into the hotel and were given a higher floor room. The rooms are very nice and updated with plenty of room for our belongings. Everything looked new and they'd given us plenty of pillows seeing as my husband believes I take up most of them. So everyone was pleased with what we were given.
We hadn't eaten all day so we made the trip to the restaurant downstairs. The food was very good and the service was great. The food came out relatively quickly and we were able to get back upstairs as we had a 6AM flight out the very next morning. The shuttle service the next morning was also on time and we certainly enjoyed our stay even though it was very brief. I usually don't stay at Marriott's as I'm an SPG customer but when I have no other option I will only stay at Renaissance. When you need a hotel to stay at near the airport this is your best bet.
