Normally, I travel for business, but this time I was in Newark to see the Rolling Stones concert. My wife and I stayed in a standard king room. Room was clean, bed comfortable, and water pressure in shower is fine. Early check in was available for us and we always felt safe while in the hotel. The hotel is conveniently connected to Penn Station and we were able to take a train into Manhattan easily without paying NYC prices.
Shuttle Service only runs every hour or half hour and is in a very old/dated van, but it gets the job done.
Hotel is within walking distance of the Prudential Center, however make sure you have a group walking with you. In fact, any time you walk outside the hotel, be careful, I was eyeballed a dozen times when we walked to the nearby walgreens once. This area is not safe and despite the line you will be fed about "Newark is being cleaned up"....its not, proceed with caution. I would stay in this hotel again, but only if I absolutely had to be in the area. It's just not safe. You will hear police sirens going off all night...I know we did.
No Pool, which was surprising and disappointing for a Hilton, but I guess I've been spolied by more modern Hilton properties over the years.
