Somewhat hesitant due to recent reviews, but what a pleasant surprise. Staff very friendly, hotel clean and welcoming, public areas excellent and room much nicer than expected.
I am a 'clean' freak so notice perhaps more than others. I found nothing to complain about. Carpets were clean in room and public areas. Whilst we, the guests are mainly responsible for knocks and scuffs on the walls, these were not copious or conspicuous, so must be dealt with on a fairly regular basis. Bedding was plentiful and clean, beds were extremely comfortable. Bathrooms were more than adequate and again fully working and clean. The seat on our toilet was a little loose, we did not complaint, but it was still fixed within a day, so they do check these things.
Furnishings were perhaps not to everyones' taste - darker wood and fabrics, but were by no means old and were in good condition. I found the rooms to be much lighter (brighter) than normally found in hotels, and there were plenty of lamps all in working order.
Kitchenette was very useful - have read comments on 'noisy' fridge, and I would agree, but all refrigeration makes a noise and it really did not intrude upon my sleep.
The breakfast was wonderful and plentiful and fully maintained even when very busy. There were quite a few 'groups' of guests, from parties of travellers on coaches, to sports teams which were fully supervised throughout our stay. We did not find this a problem, a quick turnover of diners meant there was very little wait for a place to eat.
Any airport hotel will suffer from traffic noise so I think it unfair to book an airport hotel and then complain about the noise! Yes Spring Hill Suites are between two major routes and 'planes can be see approaching and leaving the airport, but I have stayed in some in a lot worse position.
From my room on the 4th floor I could see the headlights of approaching 'planes but very little noise from them. The two surrounding roads were producing a small amount of noise, but not enough to cause me problems throughout the day or night. I live in a rural village with very little traffic so I believe that if anyone would be disturbed by the extra noise it would have been me!!
We did not drive but used the hotels' shuttle, and I agree it looked as bad as any other airport with roads that would confuse anyone, however, I believe I may be able to help here as I took notes each time I used the shuttle from the airport to the hotel :
I-95 NJ Turnpike, Exit 14, 2nd Right to Frontage Road – Ramada Hotel & Sheraton Hotel on Left, take a sharp right and follow the road signposted 78, merge from the left then turn right into Marriott hotels.
I-95 NJ Turnpike, Exit 14, 2nd Right to Frontage Road - Ramada Hotel & Sheraton Hotel on Left, take a sharp right and follow the road signposted 78, merge from the left then turn right into Marriott hotels.
I-78 east, Exit 58B, At Right to Frontage Road - take a sharp left and follow the road signposted 78, merge from the left then turn right into Marriott hotels.
Follow US 1-9 North 1 Mile to Frontage Road Exit – As you see Sheraton and Ramada on right take a sharp left signposted 78 before passing these hotels, merge from the left then turn right into Marriott hotels.
I make no claims that the above are correct, but it is the way the shuttle travels!.
Talking of the shuttles, these were so friendly to use, all of the drivers were friendly and courteous, and extremely helpful and most imporantly ran to time.
We stayed for 7 nights and wished we could have stayed longer, we will certainly not hesitate to return.
I have a small folders of pictures which I will upload.
All in all a great place to stay.
