My husband had a work engagement in Sterling Forest, NY. His employer booked us at the Courtyard by Marriott in Mahwah, New Jersey. We were given the heads up by other people in his office that the hotel was under construction. We imagined the worst.
We were surprised. We checked into the hotel at an early hour of 11am, having driven up from Ocean City, NJ. They allowed us to check in with no troubles. The hotel "front desk" was temporarily relocated to a conference room. I think we were given a non-smoking room, but there were no signs to indicate such. We were on a ground level room. There are 3 levels. The upper levels have balconies that either overlook to the outside of the hotel or to the courtyard. The ground floor rooms also have sliding glass doors with a lock and a brace bar. Those facing the outside of the hotel had garden areas in front of their doors, which discouraged used of those doors. The courtyard facing rooms had patios.
We expected our stay to be several days long due to my husband's work.
We were staying in a room with a King Size bed and a pull out double sofa. It was plenty of room for us. The pull-out was about as comfortable as pull-outs get. The bed was super comfortable and I have never slept on pillows as soft. The room also had a lovely desk that pulled out and a large tv. The acoutrements were classy.
The tv had movies to rent. Most of the movies had not yet been released on video, so this was really nice. We spent one evening watching "Finding Nemo." We also spent an afternoon swimming in the hotel pool, which was extremely clean. My only complaint was that the whirlpool was too hot and they didn't turn it down when we asked.
The breakfast was amazing! There was a selection of danishes, muffins, eggs, bacon, spreads, and more. It was an outstanding continental breakfast. However, in the future, this will be a breakfast you have to pay for. I'd rather go to a restaurant and get something made to order.
Overall, this was a really great hotel to stay at and I would recommend it to anyone. The construction was not a problem for us. I could not even tell where they were working at the time.
