"stay here if you're going to the prudential center"
This hotel is clean, safe, the rooms are comfortable and a good size, everything is pretty new and it's not too noisy. If you're headed to the Prudential center, definitely stay here.
Some other reviews said the desk staff were rude but I had no problems at all and found them to be friendly and helpful, as were all staff I interacted with. There's a free shuttle to the train station and the airport every hour if you don't want to walk. I learned the hard way that the hotel shuttle pickup at the airport is nowhere near the taxis. Take the air train to the parking stop.
For people that are worried about the neighbourhood, it's not the safest but getting to and from the train station or the prudential center for an event will be fine, there's lots of security and you can get a ride to the station if you need it. Just don't expect to be wandering the neighbourhood yourself at night, it doesn't seem too safe.
You can grab good sized takeout coffee at the hotel restaurant when it's open and they have basically a convenience store onsite too.

"Great hotel with free shuttle to Newark Penn/Airpo"
Love this hotel: across the street from NJPac, a few blocks from train/air centers, great rooms, wifi, and best of all, a breakfast (free) from 6-10 that includes sausage and egg sandwich, waffles, boiled eggs, oatmeal, juice, etc. You can do business in NJ and hop up to NY Penn in 20 mins by train. Not as expensive as NYC hotels. 2 queen sized beds, great pillows. Great view (at least my room has one). Shuttle is not only free but 24 hrs.
Location: just several steps away from Harrison PATH station, I even saw the hotel neon light before getting off from the train.
stayed there four days, very convenient transportation to both Newark and NYC
the facility are all new and the room is equipped with micromave owen and cooking kitchen, you can even cook yourself!
besides, the front desk staff is very helpful , help me to exchange coins for coin laundry in 2nd floor, and give me quite good tips on the transportation.
the hotel shuttle bus is available from 7:30 AM and goes to major locations to nearby at your call.
really good choice for travellers
and the WiFi is quite decent , though sometimes singal is not stable in hotel room. Anyway, if you go to lobby, Wifi is excellent ~
It's an old hotel and it shows. However it's not as bad as the other reviews make it out to be, don't walk in thinking it's a Hilton and you'll be fine. We didn't get robbed and we didn't get bed bugs so I'd say that's pretty good for eighty bucks.
