I don't have a lot of nice things to say about the Newark area in general and especially the hotels around the airport, the Renaissance has changed my outlook. The hotel has undergone a complete redo and they have done an excellent job. The rooms have a really fresh look with a pop of red in the decor and it looks very nice. The amenities in the bath are very nice Aveda products. I ate in the bar/restaurant twice and the food was excellent. They offer many local produce dishes as well as very tasty healthy options. The bartenders and wait staff were very friendly and not intrusive.
The front desk staff were efficient but not overly hospitable...they need some further training in that area. The biggest drawback is that as a Marriott Rewards member I was not offered in room wifi at no charge and at the Marriott Hotel directly across from the airport they do offer this amenity.
All in all a good experience in an area that doesn't have a lot to offer in nice hotel offerings.
