Before reading review below you should note that this hotel has no room safes and only has about 20 safe deposit boxes on a first come first served basis they are iPad size but wouldn't take a laptop - the staff don't go out of the way to offer these too you or offer you a facility to store something in the hotel safe.
Getting there: hotel shuttle runs every twenty minutes and picks up at Newark Airport P4 which is easily accessed by the airport sky train, elevators and escalators are available. The shuttle takes about 10 minutes and leaves the hotel on the hour so arrives at P4 at about 10 past, half past and ten to the hour. The shuttle is free and runs 24 hours I think.
The hotel has a large glassed in atrium with extensive lounges, a swimming pool and a small shop.
There is a bar that serves food and a breakfast room, not sure if there is a separate restaurant for dinner. Room service available all day up to 11pm
Breakfast is standard hotel food, priced at $17 plus tip.
Rooms: a bit old fashioned but clean, comfortable beds with clean linen, shower bath, toiletries, no mini bar or complimentary water, no safe, about 20 channels on the big screen TV including FX, HBO, on demand movies, including adult, coffee maker, rooms are quiet mine overlooked the central atrium and had a balcony, there is good climate control, fairly quiet too.
WIFI $12 for 24 hours but you can't use it on more than 1 device.
Would I stay again - yes if I was overnighting, probably no if I was staying a few days - you don't want to be lugging your passport/credit cards/cash and iPad/computer etc around New York while you are site seeing.
