This recent Embassy hotel is located across Jersey Gardens, a big outlet mall so very convenient for shopping and very close to Newark Airport. We stayed here with our 3 teenage kids for 3 nights end of june 2014. From Newark one could normally get to NYC with the PATH train, but due to maintenance works during summer weekends, it was not available so we had to drive down the NY city center which was not very convenient.
Breakfast organization was a little chaotic: too little plates, forks, bowls, fruits,... we had the impression to be constantly searching for missing stuff. In stead of the cook-to-order omelette-tradition in the Embassy Suites hotels I think they could put more effort in offering a better organized buffet. Although quality is certainly OK, I do not always want to queue for 20 minutes for an omelette.
WIFI is not free of charge, which is the main reason why I only rate this hotel a 3 out of 5. Embassy suites should really do something about this. 9,99 USD for 24h internet access is a rip off. Any 50$ motel offers free WIFI nowadays, so adapt your policy to current standards. In some ES hotels WIFI is free by the way (Salt Lake city for example where we have stayed the week after)- Marketing people should be aware that promoting free Wifi only for HHoners Silver or Gold status members only, gives a feeling to other customers that they are less worth.
Overall, good value for money for families, but if you want to discover NYC, choose a hotel closer to the city center since public transportation is currently uncertain.
