For quick day trips to NYC without having to pay the NYC hotel prices, I'd stay here again. One train ride between Newark Penn and New York Penn costs as little as $7.00 r/t for off peak travel.
The hotel looks as if it was renovated within a year or two. Bathrooms are small and the only sink is located inside of the bathroom. The pillows are firm but the bed is your typical mattress/box spring combo.
There is a business office, an exercise room, and a restaurant onsite but I did not take advantage of these amenities.
Shuttle service leaves Newark Liberty International Airport at approximately 30 minutes after the hour for a 10 minute ride to the hotel. If leaving the hotel prior to 0700h for a ride to the airport you'll need to contact the Front Desk to schedule a shuttle ride.
Hilton Newark Penn is conveniently located to Newark Penn Station either by the above street walkway bridge (which is closed after hours) or by simply walking across the street. There are some ethnic food restaurants a few blocks away from the hotel but I wouldn't walk there at night. Prudential Center is relatively close by too.
IMHO: there are other properties that border Newark Liberty International Airport but the hassles of having to schedule a shuttle ride to the airport then catching the AirTrain to the train stop then catching the train to NYC is more of a hassle than just walking across the street to Newark Penn. The less time I spend waiting for transfer connection means the more time I can spend in the Big Apple!
