Rated 2 out of 5 by binghsui37 They're the only game in town, and they know it
Pros: Hotel restaurant is one of the best I've been in, and they're flexible about checkout time.
Cons: It's super old, the WiFi is ATROCIOUSLY slow, it takes 10 minutes to get down the elevator in the morning, they frequently don't upgrade you (even as platinum with >150 nights per year), and they never provide a personalized touch or welcome gift.
The hotel abuses the fact that they're the only Starwood close to Verizon, Bayer, etc. except for the Sheraton Parsippany (which is even worse, somehow) to provide a seriously sub-par Westin experience. I will keep staying here because I don't have any other choice.

Excellent staff. Very good food. Nice meeting facility.
Bedroom facility is dated. Carpet needs replacing. View is dreadful.
Corridor traffic is noisy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rick99 Thanks for a Great Summer!
This August, I spent 3-4 days each week at the Westin Governor Morris. I've stayed here many times before for work (I like the traditional feel, combined with modern amenities and outstanding in-house restaurant, BLUE MOREL), but never this many times in a row. I want to recognize BRANDON KING for ensuring that my (Starwood Preferred) room was ready, no matter when I arrived. In fact, the first night, I arrived around 1AM with my wife and 2 young children and we had enough room to have a much-needed good night sleep after a cross-country flight. Additionally, DIANNE COOGAN made certain we felt like special members of the Starwood family, throughout the month, especially by recognizing my wife's birthday. Finally, I want to thank SEBASTIAN SALAZAR, who greeted me each morning with my daily hot water + lemon. Great service and recognition of Starwood status never gets old. Thanks!

The hotel had a party on the second floor with LOUD noise and a DJ until 12:30am. I was in a 3rd floor room and it was like I was at the party. It was ridiculous. After complaining, they comped my room but that didnt make up for the lack of sleep and pounding headache. It is ridiculous for the hotel staff to not inform guests of such and to place guest in rooms directly above the party. It is clear from reading other reviews that this is common at this hotel and the management has taken no steps to address the problem which shows a complete lack of respect for the guests. I warn travelers to NOT stay at this hotel.

very unhappy, I had an early check in so I could get ready for my son's wedding, my room wasn't ready, didn't get into my room till 25 minutes before we had to leave for the wedding, staff did nothing to help me with this, I travel and this was the worst experience I have ever had and especially on my son's wedding day:( I understand how busy the hotel was but an early check in means an early check in.

When we arrived, we were greeted by the Doorman - John. He made sure all our needs were met, and escorted us to the front desk and to our rooms, Once in our lovely room, we noticed the heat was too high, and John immediately took care of it and had us in a new room within 10 minutes. We felt very safe and comfortable knowing he was there. He really went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The room was lovely with the Heavenly furnishings- perfect! The food at the Blue Morel was outstanding! John was our Bartender and Server and he went above and beyond to please our palettes. We will stay here again and again. Morristown is a fabulous town.

We stayed at the Westin Morristown over the Thanksgiving weekend and had a wonderful time. We were greeted at the door by John the bellman who helped us with our bags and assisted us a number of times over our stay. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The bathrooms are a little on the small side. The only issue we had was that Friday night was school reunion night and some people were partying a little too hard. We called security and they took care of it.
The hotel is located close to a number of major highways but is in a very quiet area. It is convenient to Morristown center (by car or hotel shuttle) which is a great location with many restaurants, bars and shops.

I was told that my room as not reserved when I went to check in and that the hotel was fully booked even though I had a and reservation number that my secretary made for me. The staff did try to call a few additional hotels but all of the hotels that the clerk called were also full. It was late at night and there was nothing available without driving all the way back to the airport. Two gentlemen checked in while I was waiting for a room - both regulars and both greeted by the indivdiual who was working with me. I asked why they wouldn't treat newcomers with the same respect as their regulars. After half an hour of discussion with the hotel staff, she finally gave me my room reservation after telling me that I would have to pay a significantly higher rate. Unfortunately, I was too tired to drive and had no other option but to pay the rate and check in. The room that I was given smelled awful and was far from clean or up to the standards of starwood hotels. I am very disappointed with the treatment I received, I always go out of my way to stay at Starwood hotel brands even if they are not the closest to my destination. Although my travels to the Newark area will increase I will not stay at the Starwood brand after this great disappointment.
