For the adventurous only... A review of Crowne Plaza Newark Airport
THIS was interesting!
Does the Sheraton Corporation know about this place? The best parts of my stay were the easy check-in procedure, the well-appointed and clean room, and the cheerful, competent waitress in the restaurant. However, the walls may be constructed of multiple layers of wallpaper and not much else; soundproofing is non-existent here. The turnpike going by the hotel emits a dull roar at all hours of the day and night. I could hear people in the outdoor pool eight floors below. Even with the TV on, I could hear the intimate activities of the people in the adjacent room; their interactions and conversation were clear enough to tell that the man may need to talk with his doctor about the "little blue pill". Needless to say, a sound night's sleep was not something I enjoyed here. My meal in the restaurant was a mixed experience. The food was OK, and the waitress was professional and kind. However, someone in the kitchen was having a bad day, throwing things around and shouting "shut the ---- up!" to another employee. This is the only Sheraton I've ever stayed in that had gang-related graffiti in the elevator. I had reserved my room through the Sheraton website, pre-paying to lock in an $85 rate. Upon check-out, the front desk tried to charge me $109 for the night. Not cool. I complained, and the clerk proceeded to have a conversation with another employee in Arabic before finally adjusting my bill to the correct rate. Definitely not up to the usual Sheraton standards. I've stayed at $30/night motels in Kentucky that were better.
