“Good location, great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Overall I was pleased by this hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful, good food choices in the Bistro, nice gym layout and equipment.

Only drawbacks are what appear to be some sloppy work from a construction standpoint, tub faucet loose, missing caulk, etc. and one weird anomaly. Intermittently, I could hear phone conversations and music coming from the vent above the bed.

Had business in Newark and stayed at this hotel. It was very clean and very nice. I think it's a fairly new hotel and the staff is trying to keep it as beautiful as possible. The only thing I didn't like was that there's really nothing to do around there. Penn Station Newark is close and the hotel runs a shuttle there every hour.

I would definitely stay there again.

What a very nice property in the middle of downtown Newark, NJ. Very new, extremely clean, well decorated, pleasant rooms and friendly staff. What more is there to say. If again in this area for business I would definetly stay at this property. If you wanted you can walk to Penn Station Newark, and take the train into NYC.

Highly recommended. Terrific friendly staff. Great location if you have biz in Newark. Good Internet. Food choices in house are fine and some terrific nearby restaurants. Rooms are well designed and beds/pillows are very comfortable.

I stayed at the hotel on a whim... Didn't want to camp out a Newark Airport. To my surprise when driving into downtown the hotel was brand new, clean, and the staff were all very friendly. They have an airport shuttle that runs every hour. They also have free Wifi.

I needed a room near NYC the weekend of New Years Eve and the hotels in the city were impossibly expensive. I found this hotel and decided it was worth the risk as I'd never been to downtown Newark and was a bit worried about the city's reputation.
What I found was a great hotel in a neat area with excellent and easy access to NYC. The hotel is a quick five minute walk to Newark Penn Station and that is just a one stop on NJTransit into NYC Penn Station. The hotel is behind the Prudential Center and the neighborhood is rebounding quickly with new restaurants and shops.
The hotel is new and clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the internet fast and reliable. I'll be back to visit NYC and Newark again and I'll certainly make this hotel my top choice!

I used to work near the hotel, and I am very familiar with the neighborhood and its gems, like the awesome shop 2 blocks away that sells great coffees, nuts, dried fruits, etc (Ward's Coffee and Teas) and the funky health food store next door, where the ladies running the place dish some attitude while making your organic soy and seitan wrap. I was in town to check up on the house I still own in the area, and selected the hotel since I saw it getting built before I relocated out of state.
I was impressed. The room is attractively decorated and laid out. The lobby has a nice atmosphere, and the neighborhood is really turning around with some funky, urban things mixed in with new brew pubs and sports bars. I asked for a room facing Broad Street because I like the lights and energy when I'm waking up.
The staff was friendly. The housekeeper even wrote me a thank you note for leaving her a tip (the tip was nothing special either, just a few bucks). The parking is very convenient for an urban location. I will definitely be back.
