Had an overnight stay here between a late-evening flight in from Europe and an onward flight to West Coast the next day. This hotel has all requisite amenities and met my needs for a restful night between flights. I have no problem recommending this place to any traveler needing a place to stay near EWR. Having said that, I must mention a couple of things that, if addressed, would elevate my rating of the place from three to four stars.
First, there is lack of clear information on how to get to the hotel from the airport using the courtesy shuttle on the hotel's web site. To wit, you have to take AirTrain to Station P4, where all hotel courtesy vans do the pick-up. I had to call the hotel to get the instruction (took a couple of calls); had I landed in EWR knowing where to go and what to do, it would have saved me some precious time (given the late-night arrival).
Second, the room I stayed in, while clean and comfortable, could have used some refreshing and minor repair. There was slight musty smell, likely from condensation in the air-conditioning duct (common in hotels in warm, humid regions / weather). The anti-slippage strips on the bottom of the bath tub were worn out, and I nearly slipped and fell while taking shower. The timered heat lamp in the bathroom would shut off prematurely. It shouldn't take much to fix these and keep the room in good repair.
