Rated 3 out of 5 by Lamos34 Promising Start... Disappointing Finish...
Was in the area to see a show at Paper Mill. Despite the relatively high price tag for a Sheraton I thought it would be a pleasant stay.
Was impressed to be contacted by Justin a concierge for the hotel in anticipation of my stay. As a Gold Member, I rarely receive that type of advanced notice, even when staying at higher level Starwood Properties. It made for an extremely nice touch and the gesture was extremely valued.
I had spoken with Justin to confirm my stay in a Club room using a promotion code, and had called the desk the night before to verify my stay in a Club room. Upon my arrival, I was assigned a Non-Club room... You can imagine my dismay! I was then placed into a club room which had an adjoining room... Not my preference as marked on my reservation, but it sufficed.
The room decor is beautiful, one of the nicest adorned Sheratons I have visited. The restaurant served some wonderful Braised Short Ribs.
The Club Lounge itself dramatically underwhelmed. I have never seen a lounge so poorly stocked during non-service hours. Every other Sheraton Lounge I have visited at least had Fruit available in plentiful supply, granola bars, crackers, other light snacks. Certainly not here. And the food was even put away slightly early from the Breakfast. Alas.
I would maybe go back if I had such a visit like this one - quick overnight to see the show and leave the next morning, but if I was planning on being in the region for a longer period of time I would find somewhere else to be.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Trilogy Dissatisfied with Room stay
Was not overall happy with the room location.
They put me in the mezzanine floor where it was very noisy during the evening.
The bottle water did not meet my expectations. Having Fuji or Smartwater would have made my stay more rewarding.
No shower filter on the shower head caused an irritation on my skin. Plus the location of the shower head was a bit cumbersome when taking a shower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Markp56 Good overall property, staff can be better coordinated
I stay at this property frequently. The overall experience has generally been good: staff are friendly, rooms are clean/comfortable, facilities are good.
In a recent stay, while ironing a shirt some black substance came off the iron onto my shirt. I called and asked for a new iron and if the hotel would cover the cleaning of my shirt. The guest services representative was very friendly and said they would bring an iron and take care of the shirt cleaning. It took 30 min to get a new iron. I got my shirt back the next day, cleaned, with a $5 charge tag attached to the shirt, but with a note that the hotel would cover the charges... all good experiences, except when I got my bill
Sorry for the long explanation, but the hotel has only a few opportunities to leave a positive impression. They failed at this one.
I get my invoice emailed to me and I have a $34! charge for cleaning (a day later). I called the operator to explain the situation, and was asked to validate who told me they would pay for my cleaning (not to mention the charge is now $34.. not $5)! After explaining that I don't remember who told me they would cover it and I would not pay for it, she told me accounting would have to take care of it. However, I was told that it would take some time for accounting to process and they cannot send me any confirmation when the charge will be removed. So I have to check back periodically over the next 2 weeks with the the hotel and AMEX to verify the charge is removed, and may possibly have to explain the situation all over again.
I will likely stay here again, but only because I have a client down the street.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom2286 Great Restaurant/Bar Experience
Thomas who works in the bar/restaurant provided a level of service that was unbelievable and unexpected. From the time I walked in to the time I left, Thomas made sure everything was good with me, my drinks and my meal. He is genuine and kind, never once coming across fake or insincere. I would have not expected the five star service from the Sheraton (no offense), but thanks to Thomas I was blown away by the high level of service. Thomas is an absolute asset to your hotel and organization. He does the job over and above the rest!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bikeski Wonderful one night stay
Good solid Sheraton Hotel. Unfortunately, did not have time to use the gym but it was larger and had more equipment than just about any hotel gym I have used. The indoor pool looked real nice and the hotel also had a very nice outdoor pool for summer use

Rated 5 out of 5 by skoobydoo64 50th Reunion
This was an excellent venue for our 50th High School Reunion. I was able to navigate here from Virginia without a problem via GPS. The hotel was picturesque, although its location in a business park diminished the overall ambiance. The staff was very accommodating and responsive. The food for the event was well prepared. I used the gym to work out my travel kinks, and it was clean and well-equipped. The two "downsides" to note: the room HVAC system was noisy in comparison to a very quiet hotel overall; and the breakfast buffet was complicated by the arrival of a very well behaved girls soccer team - which extended our breakfast timeline considerably - so you might want to check out what groups might be staying at the hotel in planing your day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OttawaEng Great Location, Responsive Staff
Very unique architecture to this property and loved the SPG level floor room I was in. The gym facilities were a step above most other properties as well. Very responsive hotel staff and a genuine attitude of caring about their guest. Spent 9 great nights with this property and would come back without a second thought.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Antonio recommended for visiting NYC
I stayed at this property (affectionately known as The Castle!) many times. Check-in was silky smooth, and SPG recognition was excellent. We were upgraded to a "club room" on the 6th (club) floor c/w 2 queen beds (great for families). That weekend the property hosted a Spooks Convention, so it was busy. The lounge was closed, so we went to the restaurant for hors d'oeuvres (chicken wings & taco plate). Food was great & the spooks were entertaining! In the am, the fitness/workout area was fantastic. Its a private club with a huge # of machines, courts, and an indoor lap pool. There is also a shuttle to take you to the closes NJ Transit station (Morris Plains) with frequent service to NY Penn. The lounge was busy in the morning, but the staff were very accommodating. I recommend this property for affordable weekend stays, trips to Manhattan. Be aware they host a lot of weekend events so it can be very busy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Consultant123 Doesn't deserve to bear the Sheraton name
As a business transient who travels every week, I was quite pleased when I saw that there was a Sheraton out in Parsippany, which is a pretty suburban area.
In hindsight, I wish I had never found out that this property existed. I spend 3 nights here over the course of two stays, and I couldn't have been more disappointed. The entire property, including the rooms, are in bad shape. The food was downright awful. The club lounge is actually aestetically nice, but the food stinks and the beverage fridge is usually empty before 9PM. No hot food in the evening, and they do a poor job of replenishing the cold cuts. You can expect your breakfast to be highlighted with powdered eggs.
Overall, this place is a total dump. They are only in business due to their unique proximity to several consulting offices, and are fully supported by those guests. I would not recommend it to any of my colleagues, and I will never be staying here again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maxie4206 Disappointing stay
We booked this hotel for our wedding guests. The rooms were nice as was overall hotel. The staff was rude, unresponsive, and unhelpful.
-our sales person who was helping us do our room block for guests stopped responding to our emails and phone calls.
-My husband and I booked 2 rooms for the night before our wedding. When we checked in, we found out they had cancelled one of our rooms. They had plenty of rooms so it wasn't an issue, but when we questioned why it was cancelled, instead of just saying "I'm sorry this occurred" they said (very rudely) "I don't understand why this is a big deal, we found you a room".
-My parents were put in a room that was already occupied, so when they opened the doors, they were greeted by the people staying in the room. That wasn't too awkward.
-We also gave the hotel welcome bags to be given to guests, which they only gave to a handful of people. And when we called the front desk to remind them to give them out, they seemed annoyed. One of our guests asked for a bag and the lady behind the desk questioned her. Then while I was getting ready on my wedding day,the front desk called my room to tell me I had a flower delivery. First of all, she didn't even say hello and introduce herself. I answered the phone and she said "hi you have a flower delivery at the front desk". I said, we aren't having our flowers delivered here. She said "Um, aren't you (and names a last name that wasn't mine?" Honest mistake, but again, it was her attitude, as if I didn't I was having my flowers delivered.
I could go on and on but you get the idea. If you book here, don't expect any customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carole32 Overall this hotel is very nice. Staff is very helpful.
I come up twice a year for Chiller Theatre and am very satisfied with the hotel and it's staff. Was very disappointed to find only concession food which is not what I was looking for. Buffets and great and the one it what used to be a restaurant was great for breakfast but lunch and dinner could have been better especially dinner there were no suitable dinner foods. Yes there was dinner in the Pub but was quite overpriced. But all in all the hotel is a great place to stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Glenn01 Good but not perfect (yet)
The hotel building is more interesting than usual (it looks a little like a castle). The staff were very nice and helpful. The room decor was fresh and nice. It would be nice if their were firmer pillows, and the drinks in executive lounge kept running low/out. Maybe a bigger fridge would be in order?

The airconditioning unit made a very loud humming noise which, although covered, was still not acceptable. SPG recognition here is hit-or-miss.

I wish they were more accommodating with room service. Had a hard time being vegetarian at this hotel. They make no exceptions whatsoever from the fixed menu. And if you miss the room service guy when he knocks, good luck, you're going to get an earful from the operator on the phone.

I stayed one night (My second time) at the Sheraton Parsippany for a work conference. The renovations the hotel has made are complete and the lobby and conference areas look beautiful. The room exceeded expectations with amenities. The Club Lounge was also a great spot to relax and get work done. Would recommend anyone traveling in the area to stay here.

I had an enjoyable stay at your hotel. The room was comfortable and the bed was wonderful. My only complaint pertains to the bathroom. The toilet seat did not fit the commode, and slid from side to side when you were on the toilet & the floor of the bathtub was very slippery and I almost fell while in he shower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cole487 Courteous registration staff, facility needs a little attention
It is what it is. My husband reports he attended a beautiful wedding at this hotel a decade ago. I conclude that there's been little upkeep since that time. The lobby, dining room and club rooms were looking a little long in the tooth. The pools were FILTHY, despite the presence of 2-3 staff members who didn't look particularly busy. The towels were not white (!) and were quite worn. Room service closes at 11pm, and no accommodation was forthcoming when I called at 11:02.
The room itself was clean enough, and roomy. Bedding was exceptional, as always.
