I stayed at this hotel on 17th April. Overall I think this was an excellent choice
This was the "Days Hotel" and has been bought over by Holiday inn and fully refurbished having opened only a few days before I stayed. As a result the facilities are excellent.
The rooms are clean, modern with completely new furniture and bedding. A large 40 inch flat screen TV is in your room with access to many cable channels. Bathroom wise there is a shower in a bath, the sink is in the room (like you see in a lot of budge american hotels) and have all gone through a make over. The beds are new and VERY comfortable.
There is wifi access (FREE) throughout the hotel and there are 3 computers in the lobby for free use to access the internet.
Service is excellent and overall if you are staying in Newark (e.g. a late arriving flight or early leaving flight) this is an excellent choice as there is a free shuttle bus and it is only 5 minutes from the airport!
Only reason why it didn't get 5 stars is that it took me about an hour to get to the hotel. Unfortunately the hotel isn't listed in the airport so there aren't any free phones direct to the hotel. As the hotel had only recently opened the holiday inn website had the wrong phone number for it (on my reservation - apparently it listed the fax number as the phone number!) so it was near impossible to get hold of the hotel to ask for the shuttle bus to pick me up!! After begging someone at the airport we managed to get a number somehow through directory enquiries......apparently these are just teething problems. If these get sorted out, this hotel will be fantastic!!
