    Stayed at the Morristown NJ Hyatt Summerfield Suites this past weekend for one night. $69 for a 1 bedroom. Not bad for essentially a MR while also taking the family out for a meal, visit relatives in the area, and for a free breakfast the next day. :) Also a good way to take advantage of the current April-June promotion.

    This time we stayed in the ADA/accessible 1 BR suite. The room set-up is a bit different than your typical 1 BR. As you enter the standard 1 BR suite, there is a mini closet on your left/right, with an ironing board, and an extra pillow/blanket set. Next on the same side is a little desk where there is the old-fashioned internet connection cord (though the hotel does have wireless internet...free for Diamonds obviously). Opposite and behind this, is the kitchen which has a breakfast bar with 2 stools, a full size dishwasher, microwave, full size fridge and stove.

    In the ADA suite, the set up of the closet and desk is the same; however the breakfast bar is more of a connected table...to permit access of a wheelchair underneath. Accordingly, the bar itself is a bit lower. The cutoff scheme continues underneath the sink. The stove-top here is definitely old-fashioned (cast-iron spirals which glow red when hot) and similarly low in stature.

    The counter space is a bit limited...but with planning ...you could cook a full meal for two people there without a problem as there are plenty of dishes, pots & pans, etc. With the coffee maker & toaster, one could stay here on an extended stay without going without :).

    The rest of the main room is the living area, which has an L shaped couch, and an ottoman surrounding a TV cabinet, which has a 32" TV. Unlike the Parsippany location, the main TV did not seem capable of getting digital signals. A dvd player is also present.

    Entering through a double door, to the ADA bedroom, which is relatively small and has a low to the ground queen-size bed (the sheets here needed to be changed as there were some small...but still quite visible...tears/holes in the sheets), 2 nightstands & another 32" TV. The channels received here are all low-definition but it is easy to figure out channel selection. The bathroom was a good size, as it also has an outside sink (with another cutaway so a wheelchair could slide in underneath). Plenty of tub and bathroom rails and bars to access with getting up and down if you have a person in your party who has limited mobility. Again, there is some cracking in the plaster by the tub/shower. But all in all, not bad at all and probably bigger than most normal (non-resort) Hyatts. The closet was large and contained an ironing board/iron as well as a closet organizer.

    The free hot & cold breakfast each morning consisted of french toast, scrambled eggs, and sausage. In addition, at least 5 different types of cereal are offered, 2% and fat free milk, aj and oj, as well as coffee and a soda machine. Yogurt, and some fresh fruit, as well as bread, bagels and English muffins are also offered with a toaster.

    On top of the free internet access & free parking, M-Th nights the hotel also has a mini-reception with a hot appetizer/mini-meal (similar to what the Hilton at this level offers, believe the hours are 5:30-7pm). The menu rotates over a 2 week period...but in reality the options are really approximately 5 choices mixed up..Chicken Gumbo Soup or Chicken Tortilla Soup (M), Tomato soup and Nacho Bar or Roadhouse Chili Soup/Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Bar (T), Chicken Noodle Soup/Chicken Wing Buffet or Chicken Gumbo Soup/Mashed Potato Bar (W), Roadhouse Chili Soup/Cheese Pepperoni Pizza Bar or Tomato Soup/Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps (Th).

    There is a pool on property but it is seasonal (Memorial Day to Labor Day). The gym is small but has everything you need to get in a good workout. There is also a pricey Mini-Mart next to the main desk/check-in area in case you need something (very limited selection - more snacks than meals!). Finally there is a basketball court on the south/east side of the property.

    Finally....the staff here is ok and seems professional. All in all, not bad for a cheap stay. Quality is what you might expect from a SS suite if you travel often - if you haven't stayed at a SS before - You can do much worse. :)

    Nice review. Many hotels in that part of NJ make for a nice weekend/MR.
