Neighborhood, out of the 2 nights stay, reception denied that they had any available parking spot in the parking lot which caused us to leave our SUV parked on the street (broken glass pretty much all over the street, proof that other cars had been vandalized before - nothing happened to our car but I couldn't sleep much just being...

If you have set standard dont go to Reviera Hotel in NewArk NJ. I have traveled in many cities and many countries but never seen any hotel in these terrible conditions It's smelly, it's filthy its old and it's not worth paying for that hotel. In top of that make sure you get the price that you reserve for and... More

Had the misfortune of having my flight canceled the other evening late after several other weather related cancellations that resulted in the nearby hotels being full. So just wanted a bed for the night and the hope of a shower. I did no expect much and did not get much. Neighborhood is suspect which resulted in the lobby desk being... More

I would give negative reviews if I could! I made the mistake of booking through a website that rhymes with Snotwire a week prior to our stay. We chose the area because of its close proximity to the airport for our overnight layover from Italy. I was with a group of 3 other lades and our first red flag was... More

There is a security guard in the lobby.The room was very clean and spacious,there was a mini fridge. You can hear every noise on the street below I was on the eighth floor and... More

I guess the low evaluation of this hotel is due to its neighborhood which does not seem very safe. But if this is true then the whole Newark does not seem quite safe and I would suggest those who want to live in a safe area avoid the whole city of Newark. Yet to me, such neighborhood is especially interesting... More

I have stayed at the hotel four times and it is excellent value and very attractive and pleasantly old fashioned. The rooms are spacious and very nice, although quieter at the back of the hotel. There are frequent buses to Newark Penn station from where there are regular trains to Manhattan. The area itself is leafy, pleasant and interesting, with... More

Booked this hotel via booking.com for a one night stay as we just flew in to Newark early evening .The price for a twin bedded room 107 was only $80.00 to include all local taxes very good value. The accommodation was basic and in need of some investment but suited our needs. Staff on reception very nice. We had breakfast... More
