Great stay near NYC

Excellent value and nice hotel. 15 min walk to Newark Penn Station which is 20 minutes by PATH to Manhattan. Great breakfast, clean, spacious rooms, good desk service.

First Class Treatment & Great Amenities!

The free shuttle service to the Airport and to Newark Penn Station made it very convenient for us, since we did not have a car. We used the train several times to go in and out of NYC. We were able to check-in and print boarding passes for the flight home and they even had the Newark Airport Flight schedules posted each day.

Good Hotel, friendly staff, good locatio

Great hotel, free parking, decent continental breakfast. This hotel is a 10 minute walk to Penn Station getting you to NYC in about 10 minutes, without paying NYC prices for the hotel. Despite Newark's reputation for crime, I always felt safe walking near the hotel. We walked to and from Penn and the Prudential Center. The only complaint I had was the (free) wireless internet was horribly slow, with frequent dropouts. Bring an ethernet cable for your laptop.

Great price, and experience

The hotel was clean and up to date. The front desk was nice to me, and as nice as they could be to other people, some of whom were disappointed because the hotel couldn't give them a receipt because they booked the hotel on [...], and refused to stay at the hotel again because of it. My room was a handicapped room, although I didn't need it, and also was supposed to be nonsmoking. When I got to the room it was clearly marked as nonsmoking but reaked of smoke. Other than that my stay was very plesent. There was free wifi and a good cable selection, and the shuttle service to and from the train station was very convenient and also friendly, and quick to respond.

Great quality place

I found the staff friendly, the place was nice. The shuttle service was a bonus to get to and from the hotel and transit system. The continental breakfast was excellant! The only thing that was not great was the area was quite depressed with alot of unemployment and with that comes crime and unpleasantness.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel shuttle bus takes you to Penn station which takes you to Madison Sqare Gardens Penn st in Mannhatten.It was the best way to get around to New York. 7.00 return trip on the amtrak system. I would go back there.

Very good

Very nice and quiet place, 10-15min walk from Penn station. Internet working well on 10th floor. Cleaning stuff working quite and effective. There is shuttle bus to Newark airport. Insulation between rooms could be better, but this almost all hotel problems.

Good hotel

We choose the hotel to stay here for the last night before flighing home via Newark Airport. Without navigation system it wasn`t easy to find in Newark. Small advantage: all other hotels in Newark are close.
