“Staff that bent over backwards to please”
Reviewed April 25, 2007

This brand-new IACC-approved conference center had been open only three weeks when I stayed there. It has a smart, contemporary decor without being intimidatingly uber-hip, and a great restaurant with a creative and fresh menu and quality ingredients.

Service was extremely helpful and pleasant, if a little new to the hospitality biz. These folks will be excellent with a little hospitality experience - their attitudes were fantastic.

Guest room was very nice but it puzzled me to see incandescent light bulbs throughout the guest room in a brand new facility. These things are energy pigs and they heat up the bathroom. Also, no towel reuse program was offered, probably because there was only one towel bar (towels are stored, Pottery Barn-style, in a nook). Would be nice to see in-room recycling.

Very nice new urbanism street scene with FANTASTIC restaurant, The Frog and the Peach, a short walk away - HIGHLY recommended for menu and wine list. Had a house-made sage pasta with rabbit sausage - fantastic - and everyone else loved their meal, too. Hotel is within walking distance of some cool shops, antique stores, and Rutgers campus.
