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.

East Coast Visitor

My stay at the hotel was a great experience from beginning to end. The staff accommodated my early arrival and gave me a room. The room had everything I needed for my time there. It was clean. The breakfast staff was cheerful and very welcoming and helpful. The Maize restaurant has an elegant atmosphere. The shuttle service is prompt. The driver was most helpful and courteous. I would highly recommend this hotel to a friend and I would definitely stay there again myself.

Great short term!

The price I paid for this room was incredibly reasonable. Very clean and nicely decorated room, decent amount of TV channels, all the provisions I needed, wonderful restaurant, over-all great room. The front desk attendants could have been a bit friendlier but they helped me with everything I needed. Shuttle was awesome. Restaurant staff was fantastic (as well as the food!) and the menu at the bar was very reasonably priced. The shuttle service was great and really easy to figure out! Only issue I could think of is the plumbing (hard to flush the toilet) and how the water tastes... In my home in Alaska, water is totally drinkable from the tap. Water in Newark seemed to taste like it had plant life in it! Be sure to bring water or maybe just run their water through the mini coffee maker once or twice :P

Beautiful restaurant, but your best bet is the bar menu if you don't want to spend $50 bucks for each person.

Was a nice stay, and the staff were friendly

Very nice amenities, didn't stay as long as I could have. Make sure you reserve the shuttle, as it runs every half hour. They will really take you anywhere you want to go! They gave me a nice room overlooking NYC and I got a beautiful dawn picture of the skyline! VERY convenient to the train station for getting into Manhattan.
