“Best Western Robert Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Staff was excellent, rooms were clean, shuttle services were great!!! Only thing I would suggest is make sure you have the shuttle pick you up from Newark Penn Station would not walk back to hotel at night.

Thanks to United changing flight schedules several times, we had to stay in Newark overnight. While 15 minutes from the airport, we would not classify it as an airport hotel as listed in most web searches. The staff were excellent, starting with the shuttle driver who provided a mini sightseeing tour pointing out various landmarks. Front desk guys were great. Bar food was excellent. Room was ok.
Now for the negatives:
- When booking, Nothing was mentioned about having to use the "air train" from the terminal to get to the pick up point at P4
We had to call twice and wait 40+ minutes in the cold for the shuttle. Time needs to be allowed for this extra step coming and going
- The air vents throughout are well overdue for cleaning and the accumulation of dirt could pose a health risk to those with sensitivities
- The carpet in our room was so filthy that we used flip flops at all times

Location very accessible to major transportation/transit services to and from NYC, nearby major airports and popular tourist attractions. Would recommend anyone visiting Newark and New York City for business, pleasure, or both. Definitely would choose this hotel again next time we visit the area. Would you?

The Historic Robert Treat hotel is a treat. A city hotel in downtown Newark, with rooms similar to what you'd get midtown Manhattan at 1/3 of the cost, equals great value. If you can manage the 10 minute walk and the 20 minute NJTransit train from Penn Station, NJ to Penn Station, NY then this is a must consider.

We stayed here because we were arriving late and wanted somewhere just to lay our heads before going to a hotel in Manhatten the next day. Free shuttle from the airport was good and the room was large, clean and comfortable. The breakfast also of a decent standard and the staff were all really pleasant (particularly those in the breakfast room) and being near transport to Manhatten was fantastic.We would be happy to stay here again bearing in mind the price which is really good value.

Reasonable price with free parking and breakfast, save lots of money with family. the location is best also the free pick and drop from Penn. stat. to hotel and from airport. The stuff is excellent also small kitchenette area with free coffee. Over all this is a very good hotel for me and my family.

A hotel with history. Some things are a little worn, but everything is clean and well kept. Rooms on the upper levels have a great view (with almost skyscraper-feeling). Walls are quite thin, you can hear loud TVs or door activity in neighboring rooms. Very nice and helpful staff, especially in the breakfast room where the choice is good and food and drink is plentiful. Small lobby store and room service provide you with food and drink, especially since there is little around the hotel.
Penn Station with PATH is a 10-minute walk away. If you want to go to Manhattan, calculate in 45 minutes "door-to-door". Keep in mind that PATH trains do not run frequently after 11pm, it might take a while back to the hotel. Hotel offers a shuttle service to/from Penn Station and Newark Airport.
I can absolutely recommend this place as an inexpensive alternative for New York tourists!
