“A Very Nice Stay...Everything went as planned and Better”
Reviewed January 16, 2010

The hotel was much nicer than we expected. The service was very good and the staff were always pleasant. We needed to use the complementary shuttle service to go back and forth to a local medical facility and that worked to perfection -- both drop-off and pick-up were on time with no waiting. The restaurant is a little pricey as it's a steakhouse, but the food and service is worth the price and not out of line with a quality steakhouse. There are many local food options that deliver and the front desk was more than helpful with a good selection of available menus. The size of the rooms is OK, could be better, but not bad. We stayed for two nights and got a decent rate through Expedia.

Stayed for one night at the Westminster, a clean and modern hotel in the pleasant suburb of Livingston, NJ about a half hour ride from Newark Airport. Got an unbelievable $80 rate from orbitz.

I booked the Westminister Hotel for my friends and family to stay for my daughters wedding on jan 10,2010. We could not have asked for anything more!! From the begining I worked with Johannie to book the rooms she could not have been more sweeter. This woman always returned my calls and bent over backwards to make sure we had a wonderful time.They extended the bar hours for us and the breakfast in the morning was terrific. The beds were sooo comfy!! The pool was beautiful our guests loved it. My daughter stayed before the wedding and had the best massage ever!! The shuttle bus drivers and all of the staff were the nicest people I have ever dealt with.We had twenty two rooms booked and no one had any complaints. I would reccommend this hotel to everyone. Thanks again to the staff michele ferrarella

We stayed at the Westminster on Thanksgiving night at a rate of only $95 (which included a buffet breakfast). We saw that it was rated as 4 stars but didn't believe that we could get such a hotel in Livingston, and certainly not at that low rate. We were wrong. The hotel was excellent in every way, and the staff was pleasant and accomodating. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, and the heatlh club was fine (I was the only person in it). Perhaps the only negative was that most of the guests were leisure, not business travelers, and everyone went down for breakfast late in the morning, all at around the same time, and the room and staff simply could not handle everyone very well. Next time I am in the area I will not stay at the nearby Courtyard Marriott (which I always like) unless it can offer a room rate that is far below the Westminster.

My daughter was recently married and the Hotel Westminster was our rendevous location. All of our out-of-town guests had beautiful rooms. The hotel was able to provide shuttles for our guests to and from the reception. They could enjoy the party and not worry about driving home. The Bar and Restaurant were also very accommodating: the bar stayed open late and I was able to offer our friends a buffet breakfast before they had to travel home. Joannie Cruz was an attentive contact and helped me through the whole process of planning this. Kudos to her and the rest of the staff.

Sincerely,
Merredith Krekel

Went for a night away with Fiance. Started with dinner at the Strip House restaurant. The bone-in ribeye was among the best I've had (what a tasty rub the chef used!) The restaurant had a retro feel.
The pool is nicely done, with natural sunlight shining through its windowed roof. The fitness center, though not large, includes some strength training as well as cardiovascular equipment and is well-maintained overall.
The standard room is has an open feel to it as the decor is somewhat minimalistic. The bed was very comfortable and soft. (Apparently the mattresses have a softer side and a firmer side when flipped over.) The windows open fully which is always nice. The sheets were bright white and the oversized bath towels had a soft feel.
No place is perfect, but the staff seems willing and friendly and the atmosphere makes for a relaxing stay.

We've stayed in some of the top hotels in the country and this is every bit as nice as some costing two or three times as much. And the bed and towels were outstanding. It provided a great way to relax after a great Thanksgiving dinner with family.
