The hotel is located in an awesome location. 5 minute walk to the Path train to either the World Trade Center or 33rd st and Broadway. The staff are amazing and helpful, Free Wifi for everyone staying, Free parking, Free continental breakfast. entire hotel is very, very clean couldn't find a spot of dust anywhere. Hotel is dated but very adequate especially for the savings in price, everything else makes up for the age. Newport mall located directly across the street with movie theatre, Macy's etc. location is great however the Holland tunnel is also across the street so there is a constant flow of traffic outside so if you can, try to ask for a room facing the parking lot, it's a lot quieter, however during the night you'll be so tired you could probably sleep through it (I didn't have an issue and neither did my family and we stayed on the second floor with a view of the holland tunnel entrance) There is a musky smell in the hallways but this seems to be from the constant washing of the carpets. Again location is very clean. I strongly recommend this hotel as long as you can put up with a little noise from traffic and the slight smell in the lobby and hallway.
