Hello all. Have asked several questions this week and am really grateful for the advice so far. Have now decided to definitely spend our final night in Newark before we take our morning flight back to UK on 2 January next year.
We are a family of 5 - so need a big room (or connecting rooms) - we want to be able to get to the malls (I think they are open on New Year's Day?) during the afternoon of 1 January. We want to eat a decent family meal on the final night (don't mind if it is in the hotel but don't want VERY formal - just decent) - would probably prefer somewhere with some sort of atmosphere rather than a hotel lobby but, to be honest, it's not the most important thing . We will need a shuttle to the airport at about 5.30 in the morning PLUS what I'd REALLY love is the chance of a view of some sort from our room (I know there's no guarantee but would ring the hotel to try to reserve a room with a view). I know it will be dark - but you can still get a view in the dark... with lights!!
Has anyone got a suggestion - I looked at the Robert Treat Hotel - that seemed to have pictures showing a decent view of the NYC skyline but I am unsure about the area - anything like that is what i am after.
I really hope you can help - seem to have spent an age hunting through websites and haven't got very far.
