We love to eat at the Restaurant. My only suggestion for improvement was we purposely ordered an appetizer to eat before our meal. Unfortunately, all the food was brought out at once, and we had to eat the entree first so it wouldn't get cold. More

We met our here when he had a brief layover at Newark while traveling from Barcelona back to Seattle where he now lives. He did not have a lot of time so we opted to stay close to the airport. We actually had a very pleasant lunch - the service was great and the food was better than we expected. Think burgers and flat breads. Overall, for an airport hotel, it was much better than we thought. Would definitely recommend for a situation like ours where you have limited time and need to be close to the airport. More
