The evening bartender was a solid 5 – kind, friendly, efficient and attentiveThe front desk worker was disappointing because of some billing errors and because he would not split incidentals off of a company card and put them on my card Despite several requests he refused and told me it was not possible

After checking out, I called back and was able to do it over the phone with him FrustratingAlso, lighting in the rooms was poor and unlike the photos presentedReally good food too In fact, everyone in the restaurant was fantastic

It looks like your typical Marriot, clean rooms, large entrance hall, bar, lounge ample parkingMy issue is that this place has no electric vehicle chargers which I feel is a must for any new construction This hotel was built in 2018 and they put no electric vehicle chargers? How is the world meant to transition to electric vehicles, when new hotels don’t care enough to include doors with that included?Also for a new construction I was surprised at how paper thin the walls were at I could hear other rooms every night

Not the same ones so you could day I just had lots neighbors Different people at different timesFinally I have pictures of how the outlets next to the night stands just come straight up They aren’t fixed in the stands or anything That is poor workman shipOverall it is clean and looks good, so if those details don’t bother you, your stay will be great However I can’t give a higher rating to a place that isn’t trying better

Two forms of GPS may be necessary in finding this property! Why on Earth would they build a hotel buried behind office complexes, I don’t know But, if you find it, a decent hotel! Like all Courtyards, no included breakfast, everything comes at a priceThe room was nice, but my problem with this hotel is the location

If you want to go out to eat, you will need a car as this place is the last stop on the tracks, surrounded by offices and highways No good walking available Doubt we would stay here again Good if you work in the nearby offices

This place was good for a one night stay People are friendly, location was good, a little noisy with traffic and trains nearby, there’s a good bagel place on the corner There’s an Acme within 5-10 minutes for groceries

It was hard to get in touch with anyone at the front desk When we needed anything we had to go down to get it, which isn’t too big of a deal because of COVID protocolsThe rooms were clean, you could tell this place has a history to it with how the rooms and buildings are shaped The pool was a hit with the kids, wish it was open a little later The hallways kind of smelled weird The shower was a little weird because one shower head was sticking a little too far out of the ceiling and the other shower head wouldn’t stay put in its holder so we had to hang it onto a handleParking became a little difficult because they had a church in session on site and another conference going on

Erdal Duman

Hi I booked this hotel for my kids to enjoy the pool I have 2 boys

They were ready with their swimming suits thinking that they will enjoy with their parents However, it was a disappointment when we learned from the front desk that the city didn’t approve the pool’s opening This is not our fault and definitely not our kids They deserve the best I contacted the third party where I booked the hotel through that they wanted to talk to the manager about canceling The manager wasn’t here and the front desk associate informed that they will be back on Monday as I asked the third party to cancel but they said they have to talk to the manger

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

Such a beautiful old-world hotel that is frozen in time Elegant and charming are the first words that came to mind when I walked into the beautiful lobby The room was recently renovated but still has much of the old hotel architecture such as a window in the bathroom

The staff are all very friendly and the bar is definitely a locals hangout that welcomes visitors with open arms Every single employee we encountered was courteous, friendly and accommodating Such a wonderful place to rest after a long flight The hotel is very convenient to Newark without the New York prices Highly recommend

Bonnes Affaires

My partner and I have stayed numerous times at Grand Summit We usually need to check in early, around (1/1:30 pm) for meetings, and check out very early (5 am) We never had to pay for an early check-in until the last time

The front desk attendants enlightened us that the new check-in fee of $50 is the result of the new management and cannot be waived Clearly, the new management is not making good business decisions as we will not be staying there again because of it In general, the hotel was ok- clean rooms, generic and tacky decor, and hit-or-miss staff We mostly stayed there because of its historic past and convenient location

Hunnigut Baumgartner

$300/night (not even base prices, this is the rate I got through a third party) TO FIND MENS BOXERS IN THE DRESSER IN THE ROOM, a motel with full size beds, a/c that won’t go lower than cooling the room to 75° in April with the heat blasting in the hallways while it’s 71° outside, and a “deluxe continental breakfast” that resembles prison food Complete rip off, the fact that it looks interesting from the outside does not justify these prices

Clean space, clean room and clean bathroom Didn’t use the kitchenetteUber had no trouble finding the place

Breakfast was simple but enough choices with multi egg optionsRoom door was sticking and had to pull hard to shutThe only issue I had was the lack of drinking water options Except for a cooler in the gym, nothing else A couple of bottles water per room per day adds up to less than 50 cents but can make a guest feel a lot more welcomeStill deserving of the 5 stars

Shannon Simmonds

I was shocked when I entered the hotel room on how beautiful it was…room was spacious and tv was big enough made me feel like I was on in my own private room There’s a shared door in the room with a guest that may or may not be next door The bathroom was very nice the shower could have been a lot harder with the water coming down & the door the door was kinda weird it was hard opening it back once you closed it, pretty much gotta have a nice grip for that door

& FYI don’t go past there coffee machine! I say everyone must try it! I’m not really a early bird so I missed breakfast at the hotel but there coffee is always there at the front of the hotel where it stay nice and warm I recommend trying it before you head out and start your day 🙂

Arleen Seabrook

Absolutely the best place I have stayed in a long time The staff is friendly and attentive The beds are extremely comfortable

The rooms are decorated beautifully and extremely cleanTravelling with small children is never an easy task but this place made it enjoyable From the pool, to the continental breakfast, to the overall accommodations, I would highly recommend and return to this location I also had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Joe Novak As a franchisee owner, you can see his vision and passion in this location (and I’m certain it is reflective in the others as well) Making people feel like they are home has truly been accomplishedThank you to Gio (the General Manager) and his staff for running such a great hotel!

The room was spacious, clean and has every thing that you can ask for (modern bathroom, small fridge, coffee maker, microwave, vent in the bathroom and handheld shower head) Staff were nice and checking in and checking out were good too 4 stars because when we entered the room it had a smoking smell that didn’t go away, as if someone just finished smoking

So I guess the carpet smells that way from a previous guest because all the hotel rooms are not smoking as per the receptionist

Craig Rivera

I work for a company that travels a lot This company they are Choice Hotel members Platinum members So as you know we travel a lot we’re on the road

It’s very tiring and exhausting The rooms are very clean everything so modern and up-to-date Service is amazing We had an issue what’s people above us We did not sleep all night After getting in at 12 and being woken up at 5 am call the front desk Warning was given This continued throughout the night Finally after a second complaint people upstairs were told to leave and we were compensated for the room Ends up being a free stay Excellent service by far Very satisfied the way Management in front desk handled this situation Staff is very courteous and considerate always asking if there’s anything we needed You’re looking for a place to stay clean rooms Bluetooth mirrors in the bathroom updated everything Comfortable beds clean clean clean This would be a Clear Choice in a place to rest your head for the evening or a week You’ll be well taken care of by the staff

Chuck Ng

Stayed for a week here Overall it was a good experience The place is next to a grocery store and starbucks so you can pick up anything you need for your stay

The room wasn’t the cleanest, there was some hairs left over and the chair was quite dirty The bathroom was clean and modern We didn’t spend much time at the place other than sleeping so I can’t speak to the pool, gym, or food My final charge was more than what I was quote during my reservation from their website After waiting for them to “look into it” they said the room rates were correct and they’re not sure what was wrong They didn’t honor the reservation price

We stayed here for a week in early July and had such a great experience Location is PERFECT It’s great to leave the busy city and head over to Jersey City and it is just more relaxing

Very nice neighborhood around the hotel with great little restaurants, wine/beer stores, etc Views of Manhattan from the pier can’t be beat, literally right as you step out of the front door Very easy trip to WTC from the PATH station across the little public square Staff were nice and very accommodating We were a day late because of 3 canceled flights and they still saved our room for us Check in was a little confusing as you have to go to the top floor rather than checking in at the lobby downstairs but there is always someone downstairs to assist I will definitely be staying here of we’re ever in the area again

Neasa Daly

Overall our 1 week stay in this hotel was satisfactory The staff were very accommodating and friendly throughout the full week, especially when we requested to move rooms after our first sleepless night due to the light train / tram outside that runs loudly every 4 minutes so be vary of this if you’re a light sleeper The breakfast food was okay, we’re not fussy eaters so we were happy enough with the selection, but I would question the use of paper plates and plastic cutlery that cannot cut bacon or butter toast – perhaps it’s covid regulation, but it seems very wasteful nonetheless

The views are spectacular and the hotel is within near walking distance of the Path Station to NY and the ferry to Liberty Park Overall we were happy with our stay, there were a few cons here and there but nothing you wouldn’t get in most hotels around the world

Jack R.

Great location and views of NYC Steps away from PATH & Light Rail stations Friendly staff

Reservations were recommended for Terrace Lounge Rooftop was closed for an event It was our first time here We will stay again Parking garages across street and area Near Newport Center mall Plenty of dining spots Clean rooms, fridge & microwave Very nice walk in shower Easy check in & checkout Breakfast offered for a quick bite

I was recently in a wedding that took place in this venue Great food, beautiful place and the wedding planner was absolutely wonderfulHowever…

I went into the room for the ceremony to check the decorations and I heard a LOUD leak and I see a bucket and a huge hole in the ceiling So I’m asking is any body going to fix that what’s going on? The worker that was there was like well there’s nothing we can do because the venue is booked Excuse me…the bride and groom paid to have a beautiful experience The wedding planner came to the rescue and told me not to listen to her because she didn’t know the schedule She then disappeared and left the DJ completely lost looking for where to set up I had to guide himI was so upset because it was not okay The groom then heard her talking about me and he had to address that as well Like do your job!

I have been staying here for a very long time If you stay for a few nights you will love it I’m sure!This review is about the LOFT Wilshire Grand The event space was just the perfect location Felt intimate but safe during COVID The venue was clean very clean and inviting The staff were extremely pleasant

Jessica Ames

Pretty awful…we paid for a suite for my brothers wedding (held at a different venue thank goodness) The shower didn’t work correctly We notified the front desk (had to do it in person since the phone in the room was also broken) and they said they would fix it

We had issues with it for the two nights we were there We struggled to get it on each time and we could never turn it off so we let it run Half the outlets didn’t work Majorly outdated rooms For the amount I was charged this was a MAJOR disappointment Would never stay here againI will say the staff was very friendly Only pro I can think of with the awful room

For the amount of money paidthey don’t have a microwave in any of the rooms, you have to go by the front desk to share one microwave and they don’t offer ANY free breakfast (Continental or Full)

You have to pay There wasn’t a luggage rack in the room or extra blanket So, for an 8 day stay at $160000 what did I get that sets aside the Courtyard Marriott in West Orange, NJ from a Red Roof Inn? Parking was hard at night to find up front by 9 pmyou had to park in the back Oh and they do have a heated pool by reservation only up to 10 in one family I think it’s 2 families at a time I just didn’t feel like I experienced a Marriott stay AT ALL!! Clean though and rooms were comfortable

We visited the hotel on May 20th, 2022 We were very happy with the location rooms and service What made the stay exceptional was the front desk staff

I booked 3 rooms, got them on the same floor I wiped everything with my Clorox wipes and was happy to see no dirt or even dust! The bartender was nice, the restaurant was closed off but kitchen was still open, we ordered food and ate by the bar The location was great, restaurants in walking distance and the train to NYC was nearby too which is where we spent most of the days

Beds were super comfy…my toddler and infant slept well and my parents and in laws stated they slept comfortably Overall good experience here and will book again when visiting

Marianna Mansour

Had to book a block of rooms for several directors for a corporate offsite nearby Karen was very nice and accommodating Everyone was very impressed with their rooms

It was much more than they were expecting I liked my waterfront view, the comfy bed, and the amenities They even offered extending our rate to others outside our company who had to meet us in town Karen even followed up to make sure we were happy Service was excellent!

Jenn Q

Our stay was mostly pleasant My biggest complaint is that two of the elevators need to be serviced The sensors do not work

For most of our stay we dealt with the doors closing on us as we walked in, but we dealt with it because it bumped either my husband or myself But when our four year old was pushed down into the elevator and onto the floor because the door began to close on her, that was not okay Thankfully I was able to put my arm and leg in to prevent the elevator from completely closing on her feet I reported it to the front desk They were apologetic and said they would have someone come out and service the elevator We checked out that same day, so I’m not sure if it actually happened Our room was okay We didn’t use the sofa bed because it was worn and looked like it needed to be replaced The bathroom wasn’t cleaned properly There was a lot of dust and a used Q-tip on the shelf underneath the sink where our “clean” towels were The shelf clearly had not been wiped in a while Thankfully, I always travel with Lysol wipes and Lysol spray I cleaned that area and we asked for a clean set of towels Would I stay here again, I’m not sure It would depend on if the elevators were actually fixed The other issues were manageable

Prime location – access to so many different shops and entertainment Nice rooms and affordable I enjoyed staying at this hotel but the biggest feature for me was the pool area

It is large and the seating area was very accommodating BUT the pool has not been open since the covid shut down So please be AWARE IF YOU ARE STAYING FOR THE POOL, IT HAS NOT BEEN OPEN! I have not stayed here because since then So my rating may be outdated at this point But I’ve always called for various occasions to book and see if the pool was available and it was never available So for those looking to book because it has a pool, you might as well skip past this hotel

The hotel and amentites at this establishment is very nice However, I gave a bad review due to being racially profiled by Phillip ( front desk suprrvisor) on Feb 12, 2022 We asked Phillip for direction for pool where he stated the pool was filled to capicity, we should make a reservation for another day

Although we had a 5:30pm for this dateNext, he followed us to the pool area and and stated we have too many people from our group in the pool He informed us that each 2 bedroom suite can have 6 guest in the pool Our group consists of 6 kids 1 adult to supervise while 4 adults sat near the pool (fully dressed) Phillip counted all the black people and the pool and stated we have too many people in the pool We explained to Phillip we were not with the other group of black people ( group of 4) The He left Phillip returned 15 minutes later stateing our children are laughing and talking too loud, they must keep their voices down Or less we will be asked to leave the pool area He left again 10 minutes later Phillip returned This time he began yelling at our children and threated to put them out the pool if they didnt use their inside voices instead of laughing and playing in the pool In my child’s defense my husband and I asked Phillp to talk with the adults instead of frightening our children Plus it’s the respectful thing to do Phillip stated ” no I will tell the children Since they are unsupervised” hewas so out of control he proceeded to yell at our children ( ages 5,7,8) again I have a picture of our group of kids in the pool and a video od Phillip yelling and threating our childre at the top of his longes This made my family and I very uncomfortable and I was afraid of what Phillip might say or do to our children next We didn’t want the situation to escalate so we left before our reservation time ended We feared Phillip continueing to harrass us and wasnt to remove our children from the hostility Maybe Phillip was overwhelmed woth the hotel being completely book up due to a wedding party We hope this doesnt happen to anyone else

I stayed here this past weekend with my family and I am giving this hotel a 5 stars The General Manager Tonya was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with Her staff provided impeccable customer service as well

We enjoyed the hotel amenities including the Continental breakfast and pool & hot tub The only con I have is I wish the room was a bit bigger but that didn’t stop me for booking again next month!

Rooms are very spacious with modern finishing Additionally housekeeping frequent and thoroughBreakfast is available and there was a pre-packaged breakfast option

This came in handy especially I had an early commute to workHowever be sure to confirm if the late check-out option is available as I was told that isn’t a standard offering

For a Home 2, this wasn’t bad Decently priced I had a shower issue the first night but in the am we had maintenance come fix it

No issues after Beds were moderately comfortable and the hotel traffic “noise” was kept pretty low No major parties or outside noise interfered with the sleepThe views from the room were walmart and highway 17 Parking wasn’t an issue

This place is clean, the bed is comfy and I love that they provide you a back pillow to give your back support while watching TV! The bathroom is quite small The bathroom door is barely able to open because it hits the toilet seat… really appreciate the parking garage! No free breakfast offered, and the food on the menu is quite expensive The only thing I wish they can improve is the indoor pool

It seems like the filter is not working properly The water is not clean, and it’s not heated in winter

I’ve stayed at this hotel several times, however I’m not coming back I understand the prices and inflation have impacted the cost of everything but I was a bit surprised to see a very significant change on the cost of stay this time around However, I was dismayed to see that on top of the fee change, they have also eliminated the “free breakfast”; a permanent staple of this category of hotels

Next time I’m in NY I won’t be staying at the Best Western Premiere

Karin Chavez

This is the second time I stayed in this hotel I liked it very much But, the only thing is that I couldn’t use their phone to make international calls with room charge, or they don’t have the international phone cards or anyhting like that

So, as an international visitor it could be a problem if you have an emergency call to make A part from, everything was good

Path station is right next to the building so commute is smoothRooms are pretty huge with great views and amenities (cooking , fridge, iron etc) (TV could’ve had better reception)Only thing that is stopping me from giving a 5 star was the limited breakfast options available and sugary juice (which splashes a lot when you try to pour in a glass) also, there was no housekeeping at 7in the morningRest, I would not mind staying here again

THE FRONT DESK ruined my whole trip I purchased the deluxe room (most expensive room in the hotel that comes with a terrace) I confirmed with several agents from residence inn if I have a Terrace with my Room and they confirmed I didFront desk approved of my terrace room even when I checked in

However ever my room came with no terrace My sister is a new photographer and I wanted to surprise her with a view of jersey city up high for her birthday The front desk ruined my stay by lying to me They tried blaming it on hotelscom which is not the case because I confirmed my room with the Marriott residence inn staff directly!! When I asked why can’t I have the terrace room which is at no extra cost mind you, They claimed another party was in there already and offered their deepest apologies Cough cough Bull !! I know that the room with the terrace was empty the whole time of my stay How I know? You won’t believe the evidence I have! I felt racially profiled against Trust me the general manager will be contacted as I have all employee names I’ve been in contact with Don’t get me wrong it’s a beautiful clean hotel, but this doesn’t cover for how I was treated

All perfect, really! The room is smallish, but big enough that 3 people don’t feel cramped This is one of the best designed rooms I’ve been in There are TONS of drawers, so my whole family unpacked

It would be way too tight for us to have 3 suitcases open, but there is no need for that with all the storage Super friendly breakfast staff too!There is a bougie grocery store literally right here, Sprove So on that day that you’re too exhausted to get yourself to a restaurant just go downstairs They have tons of options – sushi, paninis, yakisoba – all made to order Very, very friendly staff It’s not expensive, $10 for yakisoba that fed my teenager and IWhile the subway station is super close, be warned that it can be a bit confusing because there is a NJ system that is named PATH and the NY system, MTA You need to pay for separate cards for them We’re familiar and comfortable taking the subway, but this tripped us up The PATH unlimited card is only valid for 7 days, Mon-Sun So DO NOT buy one later in the week, it’ll expire 11:59pm Sun!Time: it’s going to take you about 45 min to get from here to Times Square If you’re here for a very short time, you may want to stay on the Manhattan side We were here for 10 days so it was fine, but if it was a super short trip, you’d spend about 15 hours a day on the subway to get to and from main attractionsAlso, the easiest spot to get to from here is WTC, then you change to get to wherever you’re going It’s not hard, but it’s a little bit tricky to know when you exit a station or not to transfer Use the app Citymapper We tried several and ended up lost This one was by far the bestAn Uber to get back here from Manhattan is EXPENSIVE, like $60+ (mind you a taxi from La Guardia was $65, and a much farther distance), so it’s not really reasonable to jump in a cab to get homeThere is an Avis rental car place super close So if you want to get to a Jersey beach, check for a car! I looked one morning and the rate was under $60 which is great for a day tripAll in all, it’s a great spot Have fun!
