I was looking for inexpensive accommodation in NJ while on business and used Priceline to book at hotel. ($80/night).
The booking came in as Doubletree; I was not familiar with the hotel but at that point was committed. To my surprise when I checked into the hotel I discovered it was the Sheraton that I had stayed in many times. Apparently Doubletree took over the hotel in March of this year.
The Sheraton had been looking increasingly tired and I suppose it was going to cost a lot of money to bring it back to their standards so they got rid of it.
There is nothing wrong with the hotel; rooms are reasonably large, the location is close to the airport it is just quite tired.
The biggest change is that they will give you a cookie upon check-in!
Windows have a tint on them which means it always feels like it is cloudy outside; not an uplifting experience. If you can get the hotel at a great price go for it; otherwise there are many better options in the neighbourhood.
