I stayed at this Sheraton during the July 4th weekend to attend a family weddingThis is a beautiful hotel with a huge facility, huge rooms and a lot of banquet halls All the halls were occupied and looks like every party was having a great time in this hotel

This hotel also has 2 swimming pools- indoor and outdoor pools which guests were taking advantage of, that’s good to seeThe front desk and housekeeping staff were courteous and professionalI had family and friends staying in all the floors of the hotel The reason for two stars in this review is because one of the handicap rooms on the first floor (the last room next to the exit door) had small bugs in the bathroom and on the floor of the bedroom This was highly unlikely for such a Grand hotel The issue was raised with the front desk and housekeeping came to review the issue but the bugs were back the next day in the bathroom I’m not sure if this was because the room was on the ground floor and right outside there were shrubs and plants There might be some insulation issue in that room that led to the bugs from outsideOverall I had a good experience at this hotel and I heard the same positive response from all the other family and friends that stayed in this hotel during the long weekend except that one room

I attended only for my senior formal, so I did not stay overnight Wonderful service from attentive staff who answered all my questions and served us Loved the food, we had everything from crab cakes to burgers to cannolis

The inside is clean and safe, there’s an ATM, and of course the outside looks stunning, along with plenty of parking There’s also a small lake in the back with bridges where you can walk a loop There’s even a souvenir shop past the lounge I believe there are other restaurants and such down the street and it’s convenient to get on route 80 and 287 quickly

This hotel needs a full revamp, it’s in rough shape The halls and elevators are not air conditioned so they are a steamy 100 degrees The entire place smells funky – there are air fresheners all over the place to mask the smells

The shower in my room was jerry rigged together so when i tried to raise the shower head up past my shoulders, water came spraying out of the pipes The AC in my room sounded like a diesel engine Will never return

Nice hotel but it’s pretty much a hotel for a club If you come on a weekend good chances you get young kids partying next door blasting music all night Choose another hotel if you want a relaxing night to yourself

Staff tried to quiet them down, came up twice but they wouldn’t listen Nothing they can really do about it I guess Ended up changing rooms at midnight

Kaitlin Moran

The bed was very comfortable and the room was super cute Only complaints are that the pool was pretty cold even though it was heated, our rain shower head didn’t work in our room and, the breakfast selection wasn’t great considering you had to pay for it I would have liked to have bacon instead of cold it’s

Just saying Overall though it was an enjoyable stay

Michaela L

This hotel and rooms are extremely nice, clean, and spacious However, the staff working on the ground floor was not attentive towards us or friendly at all We were not properly greeted when we first arrived to check in and most were behaving like we were an inconvenience to them for having to do their job

They also acted like we should know how everything works but it was our very first time thereNobody explained the procedure of checking in with a host before going up to the rooftop bar The host stopped us while we were already inside the elevator and had a condescending tone asking if we had a reservation When checking out, no one was at the front deskOn a positive note, the rooftop bar was a fun atmosphere and the bartenders were amazing and attentive It’s a beautiful place to stay but I personally would think twice about going back just because of how the hotel staff treated us

Jason Garrigan

Overall a great hotel, and definitely plan on staying here again if in the area Check in was easy, the room was great, and breakfast at the restaurant was really good and decently priced Couple weird quirks, no top sheet on the beds, no wash clothes, and didn’t seem a waiter knew I was sitting outside, but that’s probably just due to new staff/lack of staff everyone is experiencing right now

Would recommend this place and would stay again, think the money we paid for the stay was perfect

S Bess

Rooms are small but clean Personnel are friendly and helpful (with one notable exception) At check in, we asked about available upgrades and were told that we were receiving a complimentary upgrade

The man then gave us a room that, we found out later, was not supposed to be available for guests due to major maintenance issues and was NOT an upgrade even if the door and the sink worked properly It was clear that he deliberately lied to us as we found out two days later, when we were told that we had to move rooms and we should never have been in that room because of the well documented issues and that room upgrades were not a thing at this hotel and we hadn’t received one (which was obvious as soon as we saw our room) Moving rooms unexpectedly made us late for an appointmentOther than the deliberate lie and deliberately putting us in a room with a security issue (door did not shut properly), the stay was a positive experience

Bret Williams

A very pleasant enough remodel The linens and general vibe was nice However, a couple of peeves: the desk chairs are not on wheels

Makes it very difficult to move close enough to do work while easily getting up Second, the lighting in the bathroom is way too dimAlso, the wallpaper in my room was peeling at the jointsGreat location and friendly staff Needs some work, though to make it a 4 or 5 star hotel

Great Service Very spacious and nicely appointed I brought the kids here mainly for the indoor pool so they can go whether rain or shine

There was plenty of parking behind the building near the indoor pool, so there is no need to compete with anyone Has EV charging too for those of you that run on batteriesThe restaurant downstairs has fair prices, which is competitive against the need to drive out and eatWhile we gave it 5 stars anyway, I just wanted to note that the photo of the indoor pool is a bit misleading The pool is a little smaller in real life, but it is still roomy and not too crowded when we went

Rob Jelinski

Beautiful hotel that sits on the Connell business park now renamed The Park Like all Embassy Suites each room offers sofa/ kitchen area and the bedroom area These are spacious and nicely decorated for the price point

Included in the stay are a free breakfast buffet (oatmeal, fresh fruit, bagels, coffee, etc and an omelette station) which are good and quality does vary of some offerings based on the time you eat They also give a complimentary drink for each adult per/ night of your stay This is a nice touch and you can upcharge if you’d like top shelf brandsLots of common areas for working which is the top priority here for most guests There is also a full Starbucks on site and a great reading area in front of the shop See my Grain & Cane review for notes on the on-site restaurant which is 👌🏼 tooThe pool area could use a little love, but all in all the Staff was very courteous, the property was very clean, and all in all I would highly recommend it!

Kylie L

The room was dirty upon check in, there was like white substance all over the bed shams and all over the doors and all over the floor, there was also a sticky substance seeping out of the refrigerator the room smelled like they were covering up maybe pet odor The scent from the vents was very overwhelming like a deodorizer

The lamp was broken and hanging sideways There was no happy medium with the air conditioner, it blew right on us all night and there were no abilities to set the vents in an opposite way away from the beds the breakfast stations were jampacked nowhere to sit young kids touching all the food with their hands, and the lines wrapped around the tables for fresh omelets, which led us to get breakfast at Starbucks Maybe it was a wedding weekend? The hotel should alert guests when something like this is occurring, We weren’t able to use the pool, there were so many kids in it and it was a very small 3ft pool, and we chose this location specifically for the pool Very unhappy We even came late like 8 pm And check-in was at 3, we told them we would be late so they had an ample amount of time to clean the hotel room , the daybed cushions were not even put in correctly the zipper seam was facing out The hotel has such potential

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a resort They compare hundreds of booking websites and normally will have rooms a lot cheaper than others! Thank me later! This resort is the best rated in this area

I’ve been staying here for a long time If you stay for a few nights you will love it I’m sure!The room was excellent The hotel is beautiful and upscale The staff is terrific Completely enjoyed our two day stay

Taylor Sharofsky

Christina at the Westin Governor Morris was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was always so responsive, answered all my questions in a timely manner, and was so organized The Westin in newly renovated and looks gorgeous! It is sleek and the chandeliers when you walk in are breathtaking! I was able to drop off my guest hotel bags any day the week of my wedding which was super easy and accommodating! The Westin provided shuttle services to/from my venue and there was no complaints We also had a breakfast the day after my wedding which was delicious! This hotel really welcomes their guests with warmth and respect

Would recommend to anyone!!

Nathan Schnackenberg

Pretty hotel with that old charm The building is old though and I’m writing this review at 4am because as comfy as the heavenly bed is, the room is way too hot and I can’t get the AC to work right I’m not the only one with this problem

This morning another guest was telling me she had the same problem in her room while we rode the elevator down to the lobby Maybe something to be expected, given the age of the place?The hotel restaurant food isn’t great Better options downtown Morristown, just up the streetHotel staff was great, the grounds are gorgeous, and old building makes the idiosyncrasies tolerable…but I’d do anything to be able to open a window right about now…

Nice clean spacious rooms in a great location, the gym is well equipped as well There wasn’t a microwave, or fridge in the rooms which is a negative but doable seeing as the hotel also has a stocked bar that serves great food The reason for the 3 star review is a private event rented out the bar and kicked all paying hotel guests out, highly inconvenient and will affect my choices and recommendation in the future

Update: The bartender’s servers and other employees that I had the pleasure of interacting with deserve 5 stars, they are amazing people that are doing a fantastic job (even the bartender that said we could not be served because of the private event, he was fantastic the following night no hard feelings he was just doing what he was told) The place in general is 4 stars The rating is strictly off of general upkeep, there are a few blemishes that could use some professional touches to ensure the maintenance personnel are able to keep up a 5 star appearance

Great location… an easy commute to the city I like being outside of the hustle and bustle, noise, crime, and grit of NYC The hotel itself isa five minute walk to the train

The room are spacious and clean Whenever I call for service, they send someone right away Friday & Saturday night jazz in the cafe is an outstanding bonus I am very happy I chose this place

Humaira Kazmi

Stay away from this hotel This rooms were dirty, bathrooms were not clean, furniture was old and dinged Service was horrible

We got in at 11 am at night and there were 2 couples before us waiting for their room They were told that they couldn’t find their reservation Those poor people showed them that they booked thru Hilton Instead of talking to these people and apologizing that they double booked, the front desk called cops Long story short, same thing happened to us They couldn’t find our reservation and had double booked and gave our rooms to someone else, even though we are Hilton honor members and booked through Hilton website After an hour and a half, they gave us a room with a King ( we had reserved a queen- 2 adults and 2 kids) The room was dirty The floor was not clean Front desk had to go down and get us towels The bathroom was dirty as well and there was a half used shower gel left in the shower stallWe could not sleep at all as this room faced the garage and had unloading loading noises all throughout the night and early morning After talking to the front desk, they finally shifted to a room with two queens and gave us free breakfast, the next day which was niceThe room that they switched us to was clean but of course the furniture was old and had scratches and dings on it The front desk manager was nice told us that we wont be charged for that night as a courtesy and she apologized However, they charged us for NO SHOW for the first nightThis hotel has lot of problems Younger lady at front desk was very rude did not apologize They have horrible serviceIf they are negative ratings, I would give them a negative 10 Do yourself a favor and do not stay at this hotel The only good thing about this hotel was eclectic decor

This hotel is close to Cape Liberty for cruising Only 30 minute drive Have stayed here one time prior years ago

The entire hotel has been renovated and looks beautiful Prices are competitive The hot breakfast was great, so many choices from waffles to oatmeal, yogurt, eggs, and more The restaurant in the hotel is VERY pricey even for everyday items Overall a great stay!

L. L.

Very clean and spacious rooms However, service was lacking – specifically asked for the room to be cleaned and no one cleaned it Also had a kettle in the room with no base

When asked, they told us they would check tomorrow Then we had to ask again the next day to follow up and they told us they didn’t have kettles in the rooms anymore so it shouldn’t be thereBreakfast is subpar and does not vary – would be improved with more fruit options and reduction in processed foods

For the record, I am a Best Western Diamond member, and I’ve probably stayed at fifty or more different Best Western Hotels I love giving good reviews, and I hate giving bad ones, which I have done My philosophy is to be honest when the emperor has no clothes

This is a good review of The Hub Murray Hill, BW Premier Collection, Address: 535 Central Ave, New Providence, NJ 07974I stayed here for two nights in late March 2022, for the first time This is a hotel in transition from a Best Western hotel to what is now called a boutique hotel There are many obvious upgrades and a couple of hiccups that need to be adjusted Here’s the key thing, management (Mishko) is very responsive to guest needs Checking in and out was easy-peasy and parking was plentifulThe important stuff My room was spacious with a king-sized bed The mattress was delightful, the pillows exquisite, and the bed linen was excellent The Samsung TV was larger and of better quality than any in any BW hotel I’ve been to The channel selection was a bit better than average The heating was excellent And the room was set up for the latest technology, including a wireless charger HICCUP: There was no safe in my roomThe bathroom and shower were commodious, although, as is the new BW style, there was a need for more shelf space on the vanity HICCUP: The shower needed one or two bars for safety purposes Sometimes people get dizzy and need something to grab HICCUP: The was no place to hang a towel for reuseI enjoyed the coffee in the nicely appointed lobby I was able to comfortably socialize with friends There was also a library of books and a small business center HICCUP: The first two times I went for coffee the urn was emptyThe area is pleasant and there are many fine places to dine We enjoyed breakfast one morning at the Prestige Diner, ask for Gabriel and on the second morning, we picked up bagels at the Bagel Café and ate them in the lobby We also had sandwiches from the nearby Jersey Mike’s that were quite goodI recommend this hotel, without reservations, and I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I didNOTE: I rated this hotel with 4 stars Given the opportunity, my ratings would be 45 Stars

We had such a wonderful stay here this past weekend The hotel – lobby, market, and rooms – is beautiful and the staff is so lovely Doug helped me when I checked in

My card wasn’t working so he instructed me on how to do an online authorization so we could make it work He was so polite and patient with the fact that I was making check in more complicated And the whole while I enjoyed chatting with him and the other front desk staff He was pleasant each time we had to stop by the desk to get parking validated The staff at the bar and the coffee shop/market were also incredibly friendly The whole time I just felt like we were staying with friends Everything about it was just great I will absolutely stay here again

C

Stayed here for a wedding Overall wonderful experience! The staff were great The rooms were very clean and had awesome amenities

My experience would have been better if there was a full restaurant, room service, and breakfast was served for a bit longer If it wasn’t for the wedding close by I may not have stayed at this hotel because it’s quite pricey, but it was a great stay and well worth it

Depending on how you get here and where you are going, you will be well-rounded on loop ramps! Sadly, it’s on a one-way highway and around we go to get to this MarriottOnce there

very nice! Great staff checked us in to a well appointed room Breakfast in the morning for elite members and an Irish pub at night timeThe hotel has a weight room, but the pool was closedRates are the highest in the area, so not certain I’ll be back but I have stayed at worse places

Laureli Hattaway

Good enough accommodations Multiple spill stains on the walls in our room, but everything else was sanitary Maid service is only upon request, a surprise for our 4 night stay, realized at a point when it wouldn’t be worth it anyways

They sent up fresh towels for us though and on our third day, I brought my own trash cans into the hall and a maid emptied them for meThe pool and hot tub were closed the whole time we were there 🙁 But showers were hot Overall, this place is good for a safe, clean place to sleep The Auld Shebeen was the best part of this place

Julie Moser

Hotel was very nice! We are here for 3 nights! Staff seemed very nice! Rooms clean! The restaurant in the hotel was AMAZING!!! Had an issue with the mini fridge not working twice and they put another mini fridge in so we had no other issues with it! My only complaint which is why I gave 4 stars is that our room was connected to the next room by a thin door! Our neighbors were sooooo loud till the middle of the night! So loud that it literally sounded like they were in our room! They were obnoxiously loud which made sleeping a nightmare! We put music on to try to sleep and that hardly helped! I’ve never experienced anyone so loud so late at a hotel luckily, until now! For the price we paid it’s extremely disappointing to have to deal with this! We mentioned it to a worker who apologized but nothing was done about it! I’m a very light sleeper so this was extremely frustrating to me! Nice hotel all in all, just wish we would have gotten some good sleep!!

My sister got married last weekend We booked rooms at the Bridgewater Marriott because it was close to the venue Unfortunately our experience was less than satisfactory

There are three of us sisters and two of us have children We wanted to have neighboring rooms so we could easily hang out and the cousins could spend time together Our rooms were confirmed the day before arrival via both phone and email However, when we arrived none of the rooms were ready and we all ended up on separate floors of the hotel Additionally, the rep from the hotel that my sister (the bride) worked with informed her that shuttle service would be provided from the wedding venue back to the hotel after the reception This was important as there was alcohol at the reception and we needed to ensure we could travel safely We we’re told that this was included in the booking costs Upon arrival, we were told that this service is no longer included in booking costs due to COVID and we had to pay an extra $1,000 to get the transportation we were promised My sister’s mother in law booked brunch for the wedding guests in the salon on the first floor the morning after the wedding The hotel had my sister’s credit card as well as her mother in law’s credit card on file They were told to charge the brunch to the mother in law However, they charged it to my sister The bride ended up paying for her own post wedding brunch!!! The rooms were nice and clean The staff was friendly There were just so many errors on the hotel’s part that it really took a toll on my sister’s wedding experience I would not recommend using this hotel for an important event such as a wedding Maybe for a night if you are passing through, but not when there is a lot at stake

Chris Fortunato

Will never stay here again The room was a bit dirty, the bottles in the shower were empty, and the staff was not cooperating with my requests We were here for my sister’s wedding and they had not handed out any of the gift bags to our family and friends

I ended up having to hand out like 12 bags during the after party rather then having fun When we arrived for our after party the staff refused to supply us with ample amounts of food for our guests I had requested a room with a better veiw when I arrived and the staff had said all the rooms still needed to be cleaned, this was at 4pm with a 11am check outI would not suggest this as a wedding hotelThe rooms are nice but they lack refinement for the price of a night

We booked a wedding block of rooms for my daughter’s wedding, after the previous one we had booked over a year ago cancelled our bookings about 6 weeks before the wedding because of lack of A/C Worked with Jennifer in Sales who couldn’t have been more helpful in making the transfer of rooms seamless; our guests did not have to rebook but just received an email with a new confirmation The hotel was beautiful, rooms were great, and the continental breakfast the next morning was in a private room, well staffed, and more than adequate

We used the Hilton Parsippany to host our wedding guests The Hotel was great in setting up a wedding block and working with us to add more rooms even 2 days before the big day! Amanda was great and worked behind the scenes to make sure everything was running smoothly The restaurants at the hotel were all open

The steakhouse is great and super convenient for a latte night meal The lobby bar was open and the cocktails are great! All the staff were nice! My guests and myself are very happy with the our weekend experience

Very poor experience Upon check in, no carts available for luggage No bell staff

Had to lug a car full to room Ordered Instacart Brought half up to room, by the time we returned other half was missing Talked with front desk about cameras They stated cameras were only in monitoring front door I explained that’s where ours delivery was dropped off She went to back and came out 10 minutes later and said nothing was seen Rooms were absolutely filthy No housekeeping service accept a morning round of cleaning up halls full of food Strong stench Housekeepers were very pleasant and accommodating when seen one round a day Staff sleeping at front desk early in the morning It would only make sense to have one of them make a quick round on the 6 floors overnight to clean hall trash Gym equipment Broken and very minimal Could not get home soon enough If we weren’t here for an event, we would have left immediately upon arrival Disgusting We all felt sick in the room and would rather catch fresh air outside in the heat wave Don’t go to this hotel

I can not say enough nice things about this location Clean, easy to get to, breakfast was tasty, bartender made a good drink They have a nice patio area, but know it doesn’t officially open until the bar opens

The front desk clerks were nice, the market was well stocked and if You need it, they have it If I’m in the area again, I would definitely stay there again

Shane Barber

I believe this was the warmest welcome I have ever received when checking into a hotel Whether here in the states, abroad, or even at a luxury resort The difference is those hotels did not have Jermaine and Golda like the little Hilton Hotel on Route 22 West in Springfield

Jermaine is so warm, personable, friendly, and caring He made me feel like an honored guest in his home for the weekend Golda was very attentive, patient with requests, has a million-dollar smile and just displayed uncommon hospitality and guest service Her positive energy was contagious This hotel has a dynamic duo at the front desk Both represent the Hilton Brand Image and Core Values Thank You Jermaine and Golda!!! If I ever need hotel services in Union County area you both made Hilton Garden Inn of Springfield the obvious choice!Respectfully,Shane Barber

Very nice hotel Clean rooms Good breakfast

Just like so many other Hiltons they are getting cheaper, and cheaper As a diamond member I spend thousands and thousands with Hilton When I ask for a couple $025 bottles of water to go in the morning about half just give it to me Usually outside of town Inside cities where younger people work the counter, they say you have to pay their full price for it How stupid I will just go around the corner to a gas station or store if they are going to be that way

Very grateful to Lisa Davis, the pastry chef, for the delicious cakes that she makes for us over the last few years Her pastries are not sugary at all like they normally are in the US Lisa’s cakes taste more European (I would say that they are the best I’ve tried in America)

This year for my birthday my husband ordered a coconut/vanilla with chocolate glaze and it was absolutely delicious!! A small tip – if you are able to keep the cake for a couple of days in the fridge it only gets better (so don’t hesitate to order a bigger size)) We all can’t recommend it enough and will definitely come back for more! Thank you Lisa!

Michael Blazek

Took my partner here for her birthday The place was beautiful, and we managed to get an entire dining room to ourselvesAppetizers were great, we got crispy brussel sprouts and a salad

Dinner was very disappointing I got duck cooked medium and it was served under done She got a steak (medium-well) which was cooked terribly The left side of the steak was rare, and the right side was well done as if only half of the steak was on the grill, everything between was like progressively cooked I couldn’t mess up a steak like that If I triedDesserts were okay I got a tres leches and it was pretty good, she got a chocolate cake and it was dry( as if it was old) and lacking flavorOverall, consitering how highly recommended this place was, I was extremely disappointed This place only gets 2 stars for the atmosphere and the great wait staff

The hallways smelled Really awful on the 2nd and 3rd floor**It is not really a hotel flaw, so I can’t blame them for that I found out while looking for an ice machine, which they don’t have even though the map (blurry due to casing being matte) by the elevator mentions “Ice” with no indication of where it actually is

I believe someone cooked extremely strong scented ethnic foodAlso, I’m assuming that they Had ice machines at one point and got rid of the machine due to the pandemic or something else No ice machines to be found on any of the floors Nonetheless, the employee in the kitchen on the first floor by the bar was nice enough to give us iceThe hallways need to be ventilated or something, the smell was very strong and stale air Other than that, the rooms are very clean and there was minor wear and tear, but nothing that I can imagine would bother anyone unless you’re a perfectionistThe kitchen was stocked with some cups, plates, a cheese grater, fridge, etc Seems fine for 1-2 people max Rooms are very small, but comfortable1 star for odor in hallways and elevators (deducted from “Rooms”)0 star for the view behind the hotel 😂 it’s a construction site or a recent demolition Again, not really the hotels fault and that’s not exactly a deal breaker for people who are just visiting the area short-term or need a place to crash for the night

Horrible experience here Before booking I called and spoke to manager to clarify check in and check out policy, all seemed wellUpon arriving, the woman at the desk “couldn’t find” the reservation I had paid for in advance

Eventually she found it, room is nice but the dishes dishes were not clean and there was trash in the couch crevicesNow three days later I need to check out 1 day early, as discussed before hand The woman who was at the counter this time was much more helpful and polite, props to herAll of a sudden the smug manager (same guy I spoke with before booking) comes out and begins explaining that he won’t allow me to check out early as discussedUpon reviewing both of our sets of notes and asking for further clarification the manager was unable to show me the policy he’s referencing and refused to pull up the call recordings where he claims he told me otherwiseHe said “it would be a lot of work to pull up that call”I guess when something requires work they just don’t do it…As a business owner myself, I can say, this is not how you treat customersThis was a simple bait and switch to force me to pay for the additional night that I did not need, since the beginningAlso, although I clicked “no housekeeping” when I booked online, housekeepers walked in on me while I was sleeping this morning

JoAnn Kelleher

Wish I could rate the stay but I’m sitting in the lobby as the room is not ready even though check in was at 3 pm It is now 3:47 pm We have been here since 1pm as we were told that we could use the facilities prior to check in

But when we said we wanted to use the pool we were told no After speaking to the manager, he said we could use the pool but also said our room would be done soon I’ll check in again and tell you how it’s going!

After staying in many many hotels this one has got to be at the top of my favorite Grandly unique and ornate I enjoyed walking around and seeing the history and art of the place

The room was comfortable and fashionable The pool was absolutely my favorite part and I went first thing in the morning so I was lucky enough to have it all to myself The only quorum I have is with the front desk staff A little bit of an attitude and when I asked for assistance it took a little due to the conversation the two ladies were having Overall though, highly highly recommend

Nil Chalfant

The rooms are a great size and very spacious I didn’t realize when I booked that it was an extremely popular wedding spot There was an private event every evening during the week, which I am sure is perfect for those attending

Not so great for everyone else The overall quality of the extras (soaps, breakfast, refreshments) is below average, imo They do have a dated, but cozy elegance and I enjoyed the fun pineapple them throughout the hotel

Christian DeVaul

Easily the worst “5-star” hotel experience I’ve ever had The TV didn’t work at all, breakfast was just cold hard-boiled eggs, and I’ve had a more luxurious room at a Holiday Inn I highly recommend staying at the Hyatt instead, weddings are great here I’m sure, but everything else is disgraceful! The “2 restaurants” are really only one restaurant with a hybrid menu? Which makes absolutely no sense

But the staff seemed nice at least

A group of us booked 3 separate rooms 4 months before an upcoming wedding, and ALL of our rooms were canceled last minute They told us they would help us rebook at another hotel, but when we called they said they wouldn’t help us Like what the hell? It’d be fine if they canceled us way in advanced, but no they canceled 2 weeks before the trip and at this point most of the other hotels around that area seem to be booked out for other events

Absolutely terrible customer service, never even looking at another Sonesta hotel in the future

Jeeca Cabral

I definitely don’t see how people have given this place 4 and 5 stars I’ve spent nights at the Wyndham in different states and can say my boyfriend and I were very disappointed The room had NO mini fridge

The drain to the shower was clogged so every time we showered the tub filled up The curtain in the bathroom had a old dirty rag musty smell that was a little nauseating Found hairs in the shower the first night I am a pretty tall female so I can’t imagine what it’s like for someone shorter than me to access the safe It was in the closet on the top shelf I couldn’t see if anything was in it and struggled to even put my purse in it and locking it Tennis court was horrible Basketball court was used for employee parking Elevator didn’t seem to secure, you could barely push the buttons without the panel moving with itThe good things about the hotel was the television stations were good, the air conditioner worked fine, had hot water when showering, gym had good equipment

Moza Miller

We had Excellent service here The spa was clean with plenty of towels The rooms were spotless

The room also turned out to look better than the photos you see online The linen is very clean and soft The toiletries are very soothing to the skin The beds and pillows are very comfortable The doors are wide enough for wheelchair access even if a handicapped access room isn’t available Their onsite restaurant have a variety of food and drink and stays open late Also the dining room have some 😋 delicious food If you come back from a late venue like we did the hotel has the menu for a nearby restaurant that delivers to the hotel and they make some spectacular food This hotel staff go over and above to make sure your stay is comfortable If I’m ever in the NY/NJ area again I will definitely stay here again

Attending a local convention, I decided to look for a hotel to use some reward points I’m glad I decided on Hyatt House Having a full size fridge and freezer was great

We didn’t use the stove but it was a great option to have The sitting area with a TV was nice in the morning to have coffee and watch the sunrise, while waiting for my husband to wake up The bedroom had doors closing it off from the kitchen/sitting area, but was open to the sink area of the bathroom There was a door to the toilet/shower area This was odd to me, but not a deal breaker I’d go back Staff were friendly and helpful with my questions

Bree H

I stayed here at this Hyatt for a full month as a travel nurse Very clean, spacious and well furnished rooms Feels more like an apartment than a hotel

Also, kyshad one of the managers, customer service skills are top tier ! I enjoyed working with him throughout my stay Because of him , I’d recommend this hotel to everyone ! There was a GM lady who wasn’t so friendly She doesn’t listen to me, the customer So I did check out soon after However , my stay was still great

Seth Mendelsohn

I stayed at the Parsippany/Whippany Hyatt House earlier this week First, I’d like to start with the good All of the employees that I interacted with seemed really friendly

Also, I loved how the people that work in the breakfast area put out coffee prior to 6AM every morning, even though breakfast doesn’t start until 6:30 It’s very thoughtful!However, there was one major negative aspect of this hotel On Wednesday when I got back to my room at 6PM, the door to my room was propped open (with the door bar/chain) When I opened the door (without using my key) nobody was in my room and it looked like housekeeping started cleaning my room but never finished (only the bed was made and most of the dirty towels were taken out) So, it appears that housekeeping propped my door open and then left Anybody could have entered my room and stolen my stuff I’d say this is a rather big security issue I thought about going to the front desk and reporting it, but I figured this would be a better way to get management of the hotel aware of this issue Hopefully, they can do some more training and prevent this from happening to other guests in the futureAgain, I thought the staff were great, but coming back to my room and finding the door propped open was not great
