Great place for the money. Good location

The staff was very polite from the front desk to the maids. The room was clean and nice. The breakfast buffet had an ample selection for everyone in the family. It had a nice little shop with anything you may need. Room service prices were very reasonable. The business center was great to print our boarding passes for free. The location was great. We were very impressed with the hotel for the price we paid. We will definately go back to this hotel.

Good location

My room was very clean, and well-equipped, with the exception of a microwave - which I would have liked. Notwithstanding that, it was right next to the NJPAO; not too far a walk to Newark Penn Station, although they did have shuttle buses, I was too impatient to wait. My shuttle bus to the airport was great, and it stopped at the terminal of your departure, unlike another hotel I stayed, that left me at the air-tram, and almost caused me to miss my flight. All in all, it was a very good experience, and I would book this hotel in the future. Most all places were of a business nature, and all within walking distance - which was a big plus and saved me from car rental fees or taxis.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The restaurant in the hotel had really good quality food. I also visited one of the many Portuguese restaurants, which Newark is well-known for. My next trip will have to include the Performing Arts Center, which is directly across the street, and has a nice assortment of hi-end entertainers.

price effective New York stay

It may be an older hotel that could use a little updating but its a terrific value. Shuttle to Penn Station and Newark airport made it easy to get to NYC on the train. big rooms, full workout room not just a bike and full restaurant but upscale and pricy. The downside is that that there are almost no other restaurants close by but there are a couple of Italian places that deliver and are cheap but good.

Best Western Robert Treat review

The hotel looks good, nice lobby. I didn't like the check in process since I needed to leave the car alone in the back with keys inside, no marked space in front of the hotel for check in customers, just signs showing that you cannot park there. The room was small but clean. The continental breakfast was minimum, usual stuff, except fruits (only apples available# and no yogurt available. Parking was free but shared with the local event in Prudential Center, so you cannot use your car on immediately basis since it was blocked into a crowded parking space. Restaurant in house looked expensive. Front desk people was not so friendly. Location is fine, neighborhood was not bad specially on the Mulberry Street #in the back of the hotel#, on Park Place #front of hotel) there are a lot of people on the streets, so of them want to talk with you while you are walking.

Great Stay

Once you find the hotel, and figure out the parking it is a great place to stay. The front of the hotel sits on a unique angled street, it can be kind of tricky to spot if your not paying attention closely. Parking is also tricky if you don't realize the lot is BEHIND the building and not accessable from the street the hotel address is listed on. Once you are in the hotel, everything was great! The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and quiet. Great linens and towels, comfortable beds and pillows. We stayed here for the convience and price, easy access to New York for all of our plans, good train schedule, and the hotel has a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes (free!).
