Perfect for a business trip...

Overall, this hotel was a nice place to stay. If you are traveling for a business trip, need to travel back and forth to NYC and are looking for a cheaper place to stay, this is the perfect place for you. It was a short distance to the city by the PATH train (the Newark Penn Station is a short walk from the hotel, about 10 minutes) and only took about 20 minutes to get to NYC. The only major downfall for this hotel is that there really isn't much at all to do in the area. Unless you have a car or are willing to travel to the city every night, you will be stuck in the hotel with nothing much to do. Also, the hotel food wasn't that great for what they charge. However, like I said before, this is a great place to stay for a business trip, especially if you do not want to spend an arm and a leg like you would in NYC.

BEST WESTERN PLUS Robert Treat Hotel

I reserved a none smoking room, but they were going to give me a smoking room, after arguing with the staff they give me an handicap room wich i refused. so finalley after 45 min they give me a room in the lowest level of the hotel which no one has been there in a while.

averagely decent

Average in every way. Not special...but not scary either (and in NY you can certainly find scary at this price). Plusses are that it's close to the Newark Path station that goes direct to WTC, the rooms are decent. The breakfast room is quite good. And good value. But nothing special.

Good Choice

My wife and I stayed over Saturday night and went to NYC via the PATH trains. Everything was close by and the room was very clean and comfortable. We'll definitely be going back.

A Little Business and a Little Personal

The hotel is in the heart of the business district of Newark and very convenient to New York locations. All the staff were very friendly, the rooms are a decent size, the bed very comfortable. The decor of the room and the Hotel was nice. The refrigerator in the room was an added convenience and the continental breakfast was filling. I highly recommend this Hotel for both family and business stays. I look forward to another stay in the future; this was my second stay this year.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Take a short walk to Newark Penn Station which is connected to the Gateway; which has numerous food vendors and other shops. Also just a short Path Train ride to Newport Mall or NYC shopping.

Overall good

Everything for this hotel is good. Free shuttle, breakfast, internet are big plus. Only thing which I found bad is front desk representative at night. He was very rude whenever I called him to pick up from aiport or train station.

Great Value for a Budget trip to NY

<10 minutes to Newark Penn Station and a 40 minute ($1.75) PATH train into downtown NYC. The price differential for this time investment is great if you're looking to make a budget business trip (since late nights on the City would make the 40 minute return less reasonable). The staff was nice & professional, the amenities were nice as well, but though the room was clean there was this... smell. Like wet beach towel. Again, it's a value, but not luxury.

Excellent Stay, Excellent Price!

This hotel had great service and provided great rooms and amenities. If you're looking for a more affordable place to stay while traveling to New York, this was perfect for us! The free airport shuttle and PATH train (Newark Penn Station) shuttle makes this hotel a better deal, when compared to other cheaper (lower quality) hotels in Jersey. You'll save money on taxis, shuttles, or train transportation by staying at Best Western Plus and using their airport and Penn station shuttle. It's available 24/7 and the PATH train will take you into New York 24/7 as well. PATH train tickets are only $1.75 so it's a great price and easily accessible to New York. As for the hotel, it was a great place to stay, very clean, friendly staff, no hassle or problems, lots of helpful advice for getting around. There was nothing more we could have wanted!
