I think this topic has been covered before :-) When my wife and I went to NYC last year we took the train from Newark airport in to Penn Station on Manhattan and then we took a short cab drive to our hotel Thirty Thirty. I have written more details in my trip report which is posted on my homepage http://gardkarlsen.com. Maybe you can find some useful information there :-)

Since your hotel is near the esb, it's also near Penn Station in NYC which makes Gard's suggestion of the train a good one. Take the AirTrain but make sure to get out at Penn Station in NYC, NOT the Penn Station in New Jersey. More info here


You can also take an Liberty Airport shuttle bus to Penn Station. The website above should give you the prices.
