Good Hotel and Superb Restaurant staff!!!!!

My wife and I checked in around 8pm and managed to find a space to park my car, check-in was ok but there was absolutely no offer of any help or assistance with our bags despite the staff watching us struggle with them. We went to the room which was clean and spacious to drop our bags off and then went down to the bar for food. What wonderful service and food from the staff in the bar, they are a credit to the hotel and the staff on the front desk could learn alot from them. The breakfast buffet was good and the 2 ladies who worked there were very quick in refilling/restocking items.

Awaiting your arrival - give it a try

This Best Western Hotel was built in 1916 and is considered old by any standard....however, over the years and an awful lot of money, many changes and renovations have taken place. It has be renewed back to a standard that had surpassed many others in this particular location of New Jersey. You will be surprised at the very first moment when you enter the lobby....you feel like you have just stepped back into the past. This hotel, from the very beginning was considered The Hotel. Hard to believe the number of presidents that were hosted by this hotel. Woodrow Wilson in 1916, Rosevelt 1936, Truman 1948 and John Kennedy 1960. You notice on the street side a bronze plaque that will confirm these visits.....also in 1933 Albert Einstein was honoured with a reception. Enough history....see and feel the atmosphere when you enter this establishment. You will note the desk staff are organized and happy to welcome you. The shuttle staff, if it is Terry, will entertain you during your drive from the Airport, every inch of the building awaits your arrival and you can feel it. We were guests over the past few years but on this occasion we stayed overnight on the 19th of April and the 7th of May. Once again we were very pleased with our room on the 14th floor....clean, comfortable....all items in the room have been updated, flat screen TV, comfortable furniture and every effort made to make your visit a pleasant experience. The hotel is located in a quiet area and far enough away from the airport so that you will get a good nights sleep. The hotel also provides a complimentary breakfast. You will surely enjoy the selections that are available.....also, if you have the time, chat with Julia...she will surely make you day...what a great sense of humour. She is the good looking older chick. All in all, we have enjoyed each and every visit to this hotel and would be pleased to recommend it to others. Enjoy the ambiance and take a stroll back in time...you will be glad you did. Thank you so much Best Western Plus....keep on smiling.

Not good experience

The toilet of the first room was not flushing, so we had to change to the second room. But the AC of this second room was not working very well. But we were too tired to change to a third room. We were so cold that we had to put our coats over the quilt.

NYC and Jim Gaffigan

The hotel is conveniently located within a 10 minute walk of the Newark Penn Station and directly across the street from NJ Performing Arts Center. This made for an easy trip to see the 911 memorial and Jim Gaffigan in the same day.

Trip To NY, stay in NJ

This hotel was very reasonably priced, and had free parking. It was within a 10 minute walk to the PATH train to NYC. The walk was well-lit, and did not seem dangerous. If visiting Newark, this hotel is centrally located for that as well. Overall, very good value.
