Convenient for a short stay

Peaceful and convenient. The availability of shuttle to the airport and Penn station makes things easy even for a first time traveler to the east coast. The sumptuous breakfast provided was good. The amenities in the room were of a decent quality however the room felt cramped up as we were a family of three carrying a lot of luggage.

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.

Only good if you arrieve in Newark airport

The hotel is near the Newark airport (in Sept 2012 the taxi was $20). However, if you arrive in JFK or LGA airport, you need a long taxi ride ($75 one way). You need almost the same money (and about one hour) to get into the city. For this money, you might as well get a more expensive hotel right in the city of New York. If you arrive in Newark airport and need to stay somewhere for one night, this is a good place. You get what you've paid for.

Americas Got Talent

My family and I stayed here while attending a broadcasting of Americas Got Talent. It was perfect! This hotel is very nice--clean, safe, conveniently located across the street from NJPAC, and inexpensive. And to top it all off, all of the AGT contestants stay here so we saw many of them throughout our stay! The only drawback--their on-site restaurant was expensive and not very good.

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.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Broad St down from the hotel has many shops to buy clothing and other items at great prices. Way better than Canal St.
