This once gem of a hotel has quietly slipped and is definitely a shadow of it's former self. Under old management, place was quiet, extra clean and had a personal touch that was refreshing. Not now.Phone in room was disconnected. Lamp and coffee maker not plugged in etc. Upon arrival, the desk clerk attempted to bribe me with 20,000 points...

Our room was clean and recently redecorated. The fact that the hotel offers free parking for up to ten days and has a shuttle to Newark Airport sold us on the deal. Everything went well, the shuttle took about ten minutes to get to the airport, and upon our return we waited only about twenty minutes for pick-up and return...

I spent four nights at this hotel while touring NYC with a group. I was in charge of the group, and ran into several difficulties when we reached New Jersey through no fault of the hotel.

the staff went overboard to enjoy my unexpected time in Newark/New York and brought me and my son personally to the train. The room was very appropriate. We arrived around midnight with their shuttle from Newark airport.
