4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stayed here Dec. 7&8, 2012. Hotel offers free shuttles hourly from Newark Liberty Airport.
The hotel is adjacent to the PATH station (no need to go outside) . You can get to either World Trade Center (downtown) or 33rd st, ( midtown ) for a fraction of the cost of a taxi!

Restaurant is very reasonable and the staff is friendly. Rooms are a good size and beds are comfortable. Hotel rates are excellent, especially on weekends, compared with Manhattan. If you are a late night party person in Manhattan, PATH stops service at 10 PM so not a good choice.

Room Tip: I was on 8th floor. Some airport noise, but when you close the heavy drapes, no problem with noise.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hilton Hotel at Newark's Pennsylvaina Station. The hotel was well appointed and the staff friendly, professional and very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and pleasant. The best aspect of a stay at this property is its proximity to the train station. There is an elevated/enclosed walkway that takes guest from the hotel to the station without going outside. The trains to and from New York City and a miriade of other destinations are readily accessible. The train from Newark to the Penn Staion at Madison Square Gardens takes less than thirty minutes and places the rider roughly one block from Macy's Department Store. If you are looking for a less expensive place to stay and avoiding the hassles associated with driving a car in New York City this is a great alternative.

This hotel was chosen to allow easy access to rail transport in this region - from Philadelphia to Connecticut. And if Super Storm Sandy had not appeared this would have proven to be the case. Despite being a hotel that at times showed its age, the rooms were comfortable (a window leak mid storm must be forgiven when fans are being blown from the roof!) the restaurant / bar was welcoming and the option of facilities around the hotel were adequate.
From our arrival the reception staff were amazingly calm and supportive - already forward planning our unexpected extended stay by booking added room nights.
The hotel location opposite Penn station is great and I would stay here again. Much better value than fighting around NY when a simple train trip will get you there. Plus easy access to Liberty Airport.

Fairly typical Hilton, which was good. I got what i expected and was pleased. The front desk staff were all VERY helpful and friendly; I truly appreciated their service. The hotel is connected to an above ground walkway that gives easy access to the Newark Penn Station. Catching a train into NYC was very convenient (although it did take me a little while to figure out which train to actually get on and which machine to buy the tickets from ... it's not the easiest train station to navigate and figure out for a first-timer). Don't expect any amazing views from your room; the area isn't very scenic. But, overall, glad I stayed at this hotel.

My husband, parents and I stayed here in order to explore NYC over a long weekend. The condition, cleanliness and comfort of the hotel were great. All of the staff we encountered were wonderful. Being connected to the train station and having covered parking were also extremely convenient. We also got breakfast with our rate, which was substantial and good. I would definitely stay here again. The only thing I'll note is that there is traffic noise even though we were on the top floor. They provide ear plugs, which is thoughtful and appreciated.

If you're not familiar with the NYC area transit, the Info desk at the train station was very helpful when we needed it.

Stayed here for meetings in the area, because of the Newark location. This is not a property I am going to come back to, unless all other options are sold out. Service is reasonable, but no one goes out of their way to please you, for example, small perks like a bottle of water to Hilton Honors guests are not given here. But the worst is not that they don't give you the small things, but the bigger things that you don't get. The small gym has two treadmill, out of which one doesn't work and on one of the two stepper machines the screen didn't work, so my workout went south waiting in line. Every time you access the parking lot you have to wait in line at the front desk to get your ticket validated, so if you drive in and out, you'll find yourself standing in line most of the day.
I'm a frequent Hilton guest, with silver status, but this stay has made me start thinking that I should broaden my horizons to other chains.

Room Tip: Look for another hotel
