Recently my family and I found ourselves traveling out east from Central Illinois. We were celebrating our daughter’s birthday and high school graduation and wanted to make it memorable. Part of that memory was a stay at the amazing Sheraton Parsippany Hotel in Parsippany, New Jersey.
This hotel is located just 30 minutes from Newark International Airport and 25 miles from New York City. It was immediately apparent as we approached the building why this hotel is called “The Castle.” WOW! The architecture is unbelievable. This is not your average chain hotel along the highway. Not even close! You just have to see it in person to really appreciate the unique style. You will be blown away!
We were greeted by the friendly staff and were quickly checked in and given our room keys. We decided to explore a bit and took a walk around the gorgeous lobby. Everything is top notch with plenty of spaces to meet friends and family and to relax and unwind. Since we missed dinner on our travels, we couldn’t wait to get our bags dropped off and head to the new restaurant, AMUSE. This restaurant had a menu with options for even the pickiest eater as well as a full service bar. Since we had been in the car for over 14 hours, we were not in our formal attire….which was fine because AMUSE had everyone from weary travelers to romantic couples to business women and men and and those who just wanted a cocktail at the bar. AMUSE took the stress off of all of our shoulders after fighting traffic, construction, and crazy drivers all day long.
After dinner, we ventured back to the room to finally put our feet up. Our room was on the 6th floor so we had access to the Sheraton Club Lounge. My daughter and I grabbed a cup of coffee for the room. The perfect nightcap for us. The Sheraton Club Lounge allows guests to get complimentary hot and cold breakfast daily, evening hors d’oeuvres, and a variety of drink options. We missed the evening hors d’oeuvere hours, but were excited for breakfast the next morning.
Don’t worry though if you are not staying on the Club Level because there are plenty of amenities throughout the property like indoor and outdoor pools, a sun deck, tennis courts and racquetball, nearby golf, a fitness center, and a business center. The list could go on and on. As far as our actual room, I don’t even know where to start. The room was so spacious, comfortable, and immaculate. I doubt one speck of dust could have been found! The bathroom was large and there was plenty of counter space for all of our supplies. The bed was literally plush and the pillows were perfect. I guarantee a great night’s sleep.
Finally, our trip was made extra special because of the outstanding service provided by the staff of the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel. They went out of their way to make this a special trip for our daughter. She was greeted with a lovely graduation surprise waiting for her in the room that she will never forget. I can’t stop thinking about her smile that evening. We owe that smile to Russell Clarke and the amazing team at the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel.
I just can’t say enough good things about our stay. I highly recommend that you stay at the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel next time you are traveling to the Newark/New York City area. I know I am looking forward to going back.
