Staying where flight crews do
We stayed overnight at the Four Points Sheraton Newark Airport, located on the northbound side of US Routes 1-9 (Spring Street) near westbound North Avenue in Elizabeth NJ. It's within a mile of Newark International Airport. It seems popular with airline crews on layover.
The lobby and guest areas are opulent by mid-price standards, with rich-looking wood and marble finishes, and spacious. The hotel has a cafe, guest store, full restaurant and bar, both indoor and outdoor pool, fitness center, and business center. We didn't use the restaurant; cafe had varied menu choices but was slightly high-priced ($3 for a deluxe blueberry muffin). The printer was not working in the business center when it was needed, but staff provided an alternative at no added cost. Fitness center had several machines and was regularly occupied. Indoor pool was little-used, well stocked with spare towels; water was a little too cool. A $15 fee is charged for parking during every 24-hour period, which is common for some but not all neighboring competitors.
Room was of smaller size (16' x 14'), and was clean. Furniture was slightly worn, and carpet was stained. Internet service was free and worked well. Bottled water was supplied free. TV reception was clear and sharp. Bathroom toiletries were well supplied. Shower water pressure was strong and continually hot. Price was an acceptable value; we paid $95 for a Saturday night during November 2007 while attending a concert at Prudential Center in Newark NJ, five miles away.
