“Just Changed Ownership”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

I just stayed at this hotel for one night, which was only a couple of days after they changed ownership. This hotel is no longer a Marriott, but now the Lafayette Yard Hotel & Conference Center. Considering the hassle the staff must go through to accommodate guests in the middle of changing ownership, they did a pretty good job. I stayed here for a business event that was taking place in the hotel. There were around 50 guests staying with our group, and there was some confusion with parking fees and hotel billing, but the staff eventually straightened out the problems.

Overall, the hotel is okay. My room and the hotel was basically clean, but the hotel has a bit of an older feel to it. The fitness room was decent, but nothing exceptional, and the water cooler was completely empty. Plus, the TV on my treadmill wasn't working. The hotel is conveniently located within Trenton, but the fact that they charge for parking and don't include breakfast is a turn-off.

Hopefully the new owners will upgrade this hotel!

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Transitioning a hotel always presents its own set of challenges and I apologize for any inconvenience. However I am happy to hear we were able to straighten things out and hopefully made your stay a pleasant one. The hotel will be doing some upgrades in the next few months so I hope if the opportunity presents itself in the future you choose to visit us for business or leisure.

I was in Trenton on business and stayed here for that time. While the hotel itself wasn't bad, it certainly was not what I have come to expect from the Marriott chain. They charge for WiFi which is usually included in the hotels I stay at, no mini fridge in the room which forces you to either venture out for a meal or ear at their restaurant at which the food was cold and rather tasteless. Other than that, I have no major complaints about this place.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. As of June 15th we are no longer a Marriott we are now an independent hotel called the Lafayette yard hotel. This has allowed us to do such things as expand the menu and add mini fridge to some of our rooms and offer free WIFI. I hope on your next visit to the Trenton you try our hotel again and see our improvements.
