“No surprises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We stayed here for one night as a pre-cruise hotel but we also wanted to go into Manhattan for the evening so the location is excellent. As my title sated there were absolutely no surprises and that it was I wanted. The staff was excellent, the room was very nice and the bed was great. I rated the value as average because it was more expenisve than other comparable hotels in the area but the location of the hotel was the key determining factor.

I would stay here again if I had a need to go into Manhattan again.

We stayed here on the night before a cruise. Very convenient location to Penn Station for transport to Manhattan, a very quick trip. Rooms were clean, comfortable, more than adequate for an overnight stay. Front desk staff very helpfull-- began at check-in, continued through to helping find transport to the port. Very nice deli type restaurant on the walkway to the train that a great, reasonable breakfast. Would definitely go back.

Stated here for eight nights. It was a great place to stay with easy access to South Orange where we were visiting our son, and only a short train ride to Penn Station, Manhattan via NJ Transit or the cheaper option PATH, either to Penn Station, Manhattan or up to 33 Street. Also very convenient to New Ark airport- 35 minutes from time of leaving hotel until fully checked at airport. Staff very efficient and courteous, and dealt with any issues promptly. Excellent breakfast available, especially at weekend. Room good size with the most comfortable bed that I have ever slept in. Would highly recommend this hotel.

This is a decent hotel. The elevators are fast so there is never really a wait. The rooms are a little bit small but laid out well enough so they don't feel very small. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioner worked awesome. It's hard to find hotel rooms with good air conditioners. The flat panel TV was nice with a wide variety of channels. The room had a nice sized desk and the wireless internet, although not free, worked very well and was extremely fast. The bathroom was about as small as a bathroom could be made. There was a decent amount of counter space for toiletries, but no room at all to move around without falling into the toilet or tub. The shower had a nice shower head and good water pressure, but the drain was extremely slow to drain.

Very good location – just few steps away from Newark Penn Station, where you can take the subway to NYC, or Amtrak trains to other cities. You will find a path from the hotel that leaves you directly in the station. To NY Penn Station the NJ Transit trains won’t take longer than 16/20 minutes ($5,00/ride each way), and no more than 7 min. to Newark International Airport.
There’s also a path to a small mall, where you can find a Starbucks, a deli, an ATM and some other stores.
The reception staff is not so friendly, but efficient.
Good, large, clean and comfortable room: big fluffy and cozy bed. Flat screen TV. Large and modern bathroom.
A/C in good condition and working very well.
A little bit expensive but still cheaper than equivalent hotels in Manhattan. It’s good value for money and therefore a very good choice if you’re staying for few days in NYC, or in transit to other cities.

The Hilton at Newark Penn Station was a great place to stay even though it was rather pricey. The staff was courteous and efficient, and the hotel was clean and in good condition. I thought that since the room costs over $300 per night, it was kind of petty to charge $13 a day for internet access on top of that. The location was excellent - right across the street from the train station, and that was nearly worth the cost. I would recommend staying there and will likely stay there again.

This location is wonderful for traveling into NYC if you don't want to pay the bigger city prices or want a quieter place to stay. Penn Station is literally across the street. It is easy to take the PATH train into the city and enjoy the sights. However, the hotel is not up to normal Hilton standards, IMO. I expected the small rooms, but our room was worn and needed sprucing - the drapery was falling off the rod and there was a lot of stains on the carpet. I was disappointed in the front desk staff who could not answer any of my questions about transportation or sights in Newark. When I asked one of the clerks how far the Bayonnne Cruise dock was he simply said he had no idea. Since there is no concierge at this location, the front desk should be a littler more orientated to such things.
