The Marriott Courtyard Hotel in Downtown Newark, New Jersey

This week, I had an opportunity to travel to a new place so I took it.  Due to a business opportunity, I am spending this week in downtown Newark, New Jersey.  I have to say that the city of Newark is not impressive to me.  The Newark, New Jersey website doesn't offer much in the area of tourism and recreation.  However, I'm staying in the Marriott Courtyard Hotel and it is super nice.  

The hotel staff has been courteous and helpful.  One staffer recommended a nice restaurant and another restocked the market with Diet Pepsi just for me.  :)

Newark is not a city I would recommend as a vacation spot or recreational activity but if you have to stay in the city for business purposes, I do recommend this hotel.

Rounded Sofa with Footrest and Table

My room offered a nice rounded sofa with a footrest and a small table.

Queen Sized Bed

My bed is a nice queen sized bed and very comfortable to sleep on.  The lights attached to the headboard are great for nighttime reading.

Nice desk and Large TV

The desk in my hotel room is awesome.  There are actually two desks as the bottom desk is on wheels so that you can roll it out to position it anywhere else in the room if you like.  I pulled the bottom desk out so that I can work while positioned directly in front of the TV.  I'm writing this post while watching a TV show right now.  :)

The television is a large smart TV.  This Marriott Courtyard hotel allows you to log into your own Netflix account on the TV for free.  The WIFI here has been great so far.  I've had no issues staying online.

Large Closet

Well Stocked Closet

The closet is large enough to hang several outfits.  It is stocked with hangers, iron, full size ironing board, and a luggage rack.

Artwork Decor is Appealing

My hotel room is decorated with pretty wall hangings and a pretty vase.

Mini Frig, Ice Box, and Coffee 

I have a mini frig available.  It's small so I can't put much in there.  My only complaint so far is that there is no microwave in the room.  If I need to heat something up, I have to go down to the lobby to use the microwave in the market shop.  That's a bit of a pain.

Nice Bathroom

The bathroom is nice and fairly large with a large marble countertop.

Clean Bathtub

The bathtub is clean.  The shower is nice.  The water is warm, but you might be slightly disappointed if you like your showers scalding hot (like me).  I love a HOT shower.  Here, the water is warm enough but I would prefer the water a bit warmer.

Even the bathroom displays artwork.  :)

Clean Toilet

When I travel, a clean toilet is a must.  This one did not disappoint.

Relaxing Area to Dine and Rest 

In the lobby area, there is a nice large space to eat a free breakfast or rest outside the hotel room.  This space is good for small meetings if you don't require a private and quiet space.

Free Breakfast and Dining Area

If you choose to take advantage of the free breakfast, you will enjoy a nice dining space.

The Marriott Courtyard Market

If you forget your toothbrush or you need Tylenol or snacks, you can get those items in the hotel Market.  The market in this particular Marriott Courtyard offers soft drinks, water, tea, chicken pot pies, soups, and a variety of other foods and beverages.  This is where you will find the one microwave to heat up your meal if you have leftovers from the day before.  There is no microwave in my hotel room.

The Marriott Hotel Laundry Room

Need to wash your clothes?  The hotel offers a laundry room.  You can buy laundry detergent in the hotel Market.

Hotel Security

The security here at the hotel is comforting, especially since I'm not impressed with the area.  It's almost too confusing to explain.  I was asked to park on the fifth level of the parking deck so I did.  Then I had to take a garage elevator back down to the first level.  Then I had to walk around the curb heading up to the second level to enter the hotel.  Then I had to walk upstairs to the second floor to the hotel lobby where I could take the hotel elevator up the 7th floor where my room is located.  Once inside the hotel elevator, I had to use my room key before I could punch the number and activate the elevator.  

It is possible for someone to get inside and perhaps manipulate the system if he or she knows what he or she is doing, but no one can rush inside the hotel quickly and cause problems.

To close, I can't recommend Newark, New Jersey for your next vacation spot or family adventure but if you need to stay in the area for another reason, I do recommend the Marriott Courtyard hotel in downtown Newark, New Jersey.
