I researched many hotels for our family's first trip to NYC. I finally settled on the Hilton due to its rate and proximity to Newark airport and NJ Transit. We were very impressed with the hotel staff who extended a warm welcome and made sure we had what we needed throughout our stay. The room was comfortable and quiet. As residents of Texas, we had no first-hand knowledge of Newark or the transit system, so we relied on reviews and information from other sources. We read many negative reviews about Newark and the Newark Penn Station, but we were very pleased with our decision to stay at the Newark Hilton. It was a quick trip by train from the airport and a 15 minute ride to NYC Penn Station. Once we figured out our way around Newark Penn Station, it was an easy way to get to NYC. As long as you arrive back to the hotel by 10 p.m. or so, there will be plenty of travelers around the station to make it comfortable walking through Penn Station. The hotel walkway from the station provides easy access. In addition, since the hotel is also connected to a business building by an enclosed plaza area, it provides a good place for a quick breakfast or lunch at donut or sandwich shops before heading to NYC. The only thing I would consider next time is that it costs $10 round-trip for the train to NYC. Depending on the number of people needing to take the train to NYC, you need to consider this cost if you're comparing the room rates with NYC hotels. It costs our family $30 a day for the transit, which would put us close to a decent room in NYC at a comparable cost without having to take the train each day. We definitely recommend this hotel for a trip to NYC and appreciate the hospitality of hotel employees.
