“Close and quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The Hampton Inn and Suites was close to the Rutgers University (within walking distance), and close to light rail connecting to other transit lines. And it was very quiet.

But the location was not very savory, with the closest stores being gas stations, and about 20 minutes from bars or restaurants.

This hotel was very nice. Good breakfast. Shuttle drivers were awesome. There was a bit of a problem with our reservation and we were put in a room that would not accommodate a rollaway which we needed. The first clerk we spoke to said he couldn't move us to another room until the next day. We eventually spoke with another clerk who moved us immediately. They also billed us twice and it was very time consuming to straighten it out.

I was told that this area was not so secure to do the check in early because the parking lot is not very big this from friend that stayed 2 yrs ago. Well the other parking lot is a lot more secure they have big spot light in the parking area and big spot light when you walk back to the hotel (a short walk) the personnel super great shuttle service no problem and of course the breakfast buffet very good the room was big and clean the beds comfortable. All around a good experience.

Room Tip: room 301 was good close to the stairs and the vending machines

The hotel being on the Riverfront was very peaceful and beautiful. Staff was amazing in every way. A lots of people for breakfast and the women who supplied breakfast kept items full at all times. Great breakfast start your day off. Very close to NJ transit. I would stay again and again!

I wasn't sure what to expect going to this hotel because I've never been to Newark before but I was pleasantly surprised on the reception we received once we arrived. The front desk staff were very nice and welcoming. They answered any questions we had (we were going to a concert at the Prudential Center and had no idea how to get there). They provided a shuttle service to and from the concert we attended and Terrance (our driver) was awesome! He showed us a couple places to eat and exactly where he would be picking us up that evening after the event. The rooms were wonderful also with wifi and good selections on the tv. I would definitely stay here again if we ever go back to Newark!

I stayed at this Hampton Inn during the first week of April, 2014. I flew into Newark Airport, and the hotel shuttle came to pick mu up within 10 minutes of my call. Each day when I went into New York City, the shuttle driver would take me to the train station and tell me exactly how to get to my destination, including which subway to catch, the price, and where to catch it. Each night when I returned, they would pick me up by shuttle and drive me back to the hotel. I didn't have to take a cab even once. The hotel room was clean, comfortable, quiet, secure, and priced reasonably. The breakfast buffet, which was included, was quite extensive with items to please everyone. The hotel staff also suggested many fine restaurants, both in News York and in Newark. I will stay in this hotel again when I travel to NYC.

Room Tip: Request a room that faces the river. The view is lovely, even in early spring.
