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.

Good value, comfortable, and convenient to EWR

Greatly enjoyed our stay here. We were arriving from a very long journey from Greece and needed a night to recover before heading even more west out of EWR. After staying a month away abroad, this hotel felt very cozy and comfortable to return to. The beds were comfortable and we were so excited to see that there were multiple fluffy pillows (something that many over our hotels abroad were lacking). It was wonderful to be able to wake up to a good continental breakfast spread. The hotel offered hard boiled eggs, sausage egg and cheese sandwiches, oatmeal, cereal, juice, yogurt, a limited selection of fruit, coffee, toast, and even make your own pancakes! It was easy to wake up to this and then to catch our flt at EWR after taking the hotel shuttle to the airport, which leaves every 30 mins and takes about 15-20 mins to get to the airport. This hotel isn't like staying in NYC because you don't have a tom of restaurants and other things around at your finger tips. Still it was great for what we needed on our day layover. Bottom line is it's not a beautiful 5 star hotel by any means but if want an easy and good experience while traveling from the airport, stay here. We would definitely stay again!

General review

The location is strategic for inexpensive access to NYC. It is within walking distance to Newark Penn station and only a short train ride into Manhatten. The room was clean, tidy, and compact. Although we did not eat at the restaurant, it looked appetizing. The king bed was comfortable and the bathroom was small abut functional. Only drawback was it has only 2 elevators for 14 floors.

Worked out well

We booked a package online. This hotel is across the street from a lovely Military Park and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center where we had an event. We didn't know it was so close. We walked. Nice area of downtown. Parking awkward but suitable and free. Prudential Center a 15 minute walk away. Our room was cold due to the AC. We shut it off. Hotel shuts off the heat starting May. Only AC available. Had a blower fan on constantly in the bathroom. No way to turn it off. Annoying but we shut the door. Cold air vent blew directly into shower. Could have just been our room. Didn't ask for a change. Just got more blankets. Hotel restaurant Maize quite good, good service and accommodating. Walked 3 blocks to NJ Penn Station. Took a round trip train into NY Penn Station for $10. 15 minute train ride put us at Seventh Ave and 30th st. Would stay at hotel again for convenience of not fussing with NY traffic and hotels. They shuttle to and from the airport.
