Unbeatable location for the price!

If your looking to visit NYC this is a great place to stay without having to pay those typical NYC hotel prices. The Westin is located right across the street from the PATH train that takes you straight into the city within a matter of 10 minutes. The inside of the hotel was beautiful! There is construction going on next to the hotel so it is a bit of an eye sore from the room, but other than that great service and friendly staff. We would definately stay there again!

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are not familiar with New York City, I would definately recommend buying a travelers book from the book store. Frommer's and Fodor's are just two traveling books that I have found very useful. They provide sample itineraries and places to see depending on the number of days you have to spend. The most important thing is that they include maps of the subways and streets that prevented us from getting lost which is very easy to do in the city!

Very relaxing

The hotel was very nice and the room was extremely comfortable, however the staff was not very friendly. The doormen were particularly unpleasant and seemed to be desparate for tips.

A Stone's throw away

The location was great. I actually took public transporation from Newark airport to the Westin. The cost was under $11.00. A cab ride from Newark airport runs about $50.00. The PATH train station is about 2 blocks from the hotel. I took the train into NYC every morning. It is a short train ride into the city. The location was perfect.

The Westin was a great place to stay

The hotel was clean and quiet, two prerequisites that I always have. The staff was friendly and engineering staff responded quickly and efficiently to the two minor issues we had during our stay. I was very surprised at how close the path train and the Shoprite were in proximity to the hotel. This is the perfect place to stay for day trips to the city and/or business in a place that is well away from noise.

Buy the metro cards that service both the path trains and the subway system in NY rather than the one-way/round trip path tickets.

Great service

The Hotel was very clean and the employees were great when told about a concern it was taken care of immediately. Example- The hot tub wasnt warm, reset the temp within minutes so it would warm up. Location was close to the New Jersey Lightrail and PATH station which brings you into New York City and close to a mall which had several food places in the food court.

Great night stay

Room was very clean, bed was extremely comfortable, double headed shower was incredible!The thing I thought was kind of annoying [...] was that some of the descriptions included wifi and others did not. I thought that it meant that it was included in the price, so I selected one that had wifi in it. This is not the case. Wifi is not included in the price it is an additional charge of like $10 a night. I opted not to take advantage of their service and instead used my VZ wireless card and it had great coverage, so it worked out anyhow.Also, when I wanted to schedule a wake up call, I called around 12:15 and no one was picking up, not even the front desk did. After the phone rang for 5 minutes, I was able to get someone on the phone and they took care of it in about 10 seconds.Other than those two small things, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and would stay there again.

Awesome Hotel Stay

The hotel was clean, quiet and accomodating. My room offered a beatiful view of the water/park right across the street. The hotel is right around the corner from the train station, major super market and mall. I was able to get to and from NY without any issues.
