"Great hotel with free shuttle to Newark Penn/Airpo"
Love this hotel: across the street from NJPac, a few blocks from train/air centers, great rooms, wifi, and best of all, a breakfast (free) from 6-10 that includes sausage and egg sandwich, waffles, boiled eggs, oatmeal, juice, etc. You can do business in NJ and hop up to NY Penn in 20 mins by train. Not as expensive as NYC hotels. 2 queen sized beds, great pillows. Great view (at least my room has one). Shuttle is not only free but 24 hrs.
Modern comfortable hotel with nice sized room. Seemed new. Would have preferred that it had a restaurant on the premise. All in All perfect for an overnight stay when we had to make a very early flight out of Newark Airport.
"stay here if you're going to the prudential center"
This hotel is clean, safe, the rooms are comfortable and a good size, everything is pretty new and it's not too noisy. If you're headed to the Prudential center, definitely stay here.
Some other reviews said the desk staff were rude but I had no problems at all and found them to be friendly and helpful, as were all staff I interacted with. There's a free shuttle to the train station and the airport every hour if you don't want to walk. I learned the hard way that the hotel shuttle pickup at the airport is nowhere near the taxis. Take the air train to the parking stop.
For people that are worried about the neighbourhood, it's not the safest but getting to and from the train station or the prudential center for an event will be fine, there's lots of security and you can get a ride to the station if you need it. Just don't expect to be wandering the neighbourhood yourself at night, it doesn't seem too safe.
You can grab good sized takeout coffee at the hotel restaurant when it's open and they have basically a convenience store onsite too.
