We stayed at newark as we landed late and were catching an onward flight the nex day.
We got a taxi to the hotel from the airport as it was late and we weren't sure where the shuttle went from, the taxi cost about $24 - although the hotel is close it is a fair distance by road.
First impressions weren't great - the hotel reception looked a bit shabby, everything was closed and a policeman was sitting outside smoking whilst holding a gun. However once we checked in and got past the creaky lift the roomwas nice, newly redecorated and modern. A big HD TV wasmounted on the wal and a comfy bed and sofa area. Although food service had stopped (surely airport hotels should have 24 hour food available) the receptionist helped us order takeaway whcih came promptly. We were on the top flor which I think is the club rooms but there was no club lounge to use.
The hotel has free wi-fi throughout and a bank of free PCs to use in the reception area.
The next day we had late checkout until2pm (normally 12 noon) and took the shuttle back to Newark Airport which was easy to organise with reception.
The main gripe with the room is the air conditioning is very noisy and is a seperate wall mounted unit ratherthan built into the room. When we arrived the room was very hot and though it cooled down quickly we had to turnit off to sleep - it wasVERY LOUD.
Apart from this, for a onenight airport stay it was a good hotel and the room was very modern and fresh. Perfect for a stop over but a long (and expensive) way from Manhatten.
