Downtown Welcomes The Courtyard Marriott

The hotel manager, Nick Pappagallo, was kind enough to give me a tour of the facilites. I also had the pleasure of staying there for a night so I could get a first-hand perspective of the place, and I’ve gotta say I was pretty pleased throughout.

I love how Debbie Galant of the NJ News Commons put this:

The arrival of a Courtyard Marriott wouldn’t raise a journalist’s eyebrow anywhere else, but in Newark, it’s a story.
