My wife and I arrived for a one night stay on Friday Nov 21st at 9PM. Check in was very fast. The front desk associate was very friendly. acknowledged my Gold status, and gave us the full run down on the property and its offerings. Our room was very nice. Good size, clean, and in very good shape. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows actually kept shape when you laid your head down. Most Marriott pillows totally flatten when you go to sleep on them but these did not which was great. There was a tiny balcony but we did not use it. The room was also very quiet. In the morning we had breakfast at the Bistro and the ham, cheese, and egg croissant sandwiches were quite tasty. In our room key packet we were also given a coupon to redeem a tall beverage at the starbucks on site or any item from "the market", and it was a very nice touch. I have to say this was an excellent stay from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. If you travels take you to UDel, definitely stay here.
"Can I move in?"

Stayed here for three nights with hubby. From the moment overnight Mike greeted us at 12:30 a.m., we had a great stay. The lobby seating area has nice groupings of easy chairs, tables, TVs and a gas fireplace to boot. I wandered out back and discovered some lovely small waterfalls and a sweet grilling patio. I hear they do music and outdoor meals in the summer. The handicapped room was well thought out. First off, it's close to the lobby on the ground floor. Yes, we have been in two hotel fires and had five and eight flights to walk before! There was a pull down shower bench as well as a chair. It was also designed to accommodate those of us who can stand to shower with our own wall shower head! As a big recycler, I appreciate recycle bins not only in rooms, but on back courtyard. The room TV is a large flat screen. The light switches are easy to find. Hair dryer, iron and ironing board were appreciated. The bistro has a reasonably priced breakfast. All employees were friendly and helpful from all of the Mikes, Cassandra, servers and chef Mark. Although we didn't use the pool or spa, they looked inviting. There was plenty of parking and I like the overhang in front of the entrance. We didn't pull out the sleeper couch, but it was fine to sit on. Oh, there is a nice grassy area our room looked out onto which doubles as a pet area (complete with poop bags). Since it was cold we didn't sit on the little patio with a table and chairs. I want to visit in the summer! This was a great place to stay! Thanks to all of those who made it possible!

"Best place to stay in Newark, DE"

Routinely stay here for business in the area. Excellent facility, newly renovated, always friendly staff. Perfect location to campus, downtown and White Clay State Park - especially if you like to run, mtn bike and hike. You can rent a mountain bike downtown for about $25 half day.
"quiet and nice"

I have been here for several times for conferences and other activities. It's a quiet, nice and clean hotel. It's also convenient and close to the main campus of University of Delaware. Prices were not bad.
"Great place to stay"

We have stayed here before while attending a U of DE game. The hotel is very clean and so close to the University. The breakfast, not included, is very delicious. There was quite a nice selection of food. We would highly recommend!
"Ud football game"

We were quite pleased with our stay in September for the first ud home game. Although the game was stormed out, we were lucky enough to get to meet eddie and enjoy a top notch meal! Since we are platinum members, we were also upgrade to a huge suite which we enjoyed very much. Breakfast on the weekends is wonderful as well. This is much more than a plain old courtyard. Thanks so much for the lovely stay. We will look forward to seeing you again for the game November 22.

Over the weekend, my family (Harris ) had a gathering at the Courtyard by Marriott in Newark, Delaware. I was part of the decorating and planning committee. I want to start off by saying that I am so glad that this hotel was selected. It was the smoothest experience I have ever encountered. I asked to get into the banquet room a little early as my florist had delivered the balloons. The workers were busy getting things set up, but did not hesitate to accommodate me with whatever I needed. Every thing was done with great care and professionalism. Finally, when it was time to eat....OMG! The food was absolutely delicious. I am still licking my lips! The chicken melted in your mouth and I don't even want to get my taste buds yearning for the beef and the mashed potatoes and gravy! The servers were absolutely wonderful....they set up, went on about their business but was in calling distance when needed. We had a great family gathering and I can honestly say, the atmosphere was set the very minute I walked into the hotel. What a great place with what seemed like a great staff of people. Thanks for making our family event that much better! I did not hear one complaint. Thank you, thank you , thank you!
"Exceeded Every Expectation"
09/23/14 Marc R Washington DC, District of Columbia
Tired from driving, and not wanting to stay on I95 - I found this gem on the mobile Marriott app. It was less expensive than the roadside hotel and much quieter being on the college campus and not on the road (or by the casino). I was unexpectedly upgraded to a major suite by Candice at the front desk. Also unexpected was the FULL menu at the Bistro and - believe it or not - five star plus Crab Cakes for dinner. Service was awesome, Rooms clean and just a few minutes off the main road. Great job!!
"Clean, comfy, cozy"

We've stayed here now twice since our daughter is a UDel student. It is well run, very clean and a great place to wind down after walking around campus. We enjoy the bar (go figure) very much. The bartender (an older gent) went totally out of his way to make a dinner reservation for us on a busy Sat night. It's that kind of customer service that makes this place special. As a Marriott frequent guest, this is a winner location. The General Manager and management team are doing something right. We can't wait to go back.
