In transit from CVG, I chose the Crown Plaza as it's pretty good for commuting to NYC and at a cost much less than downtown. The rooms are pretty standard but are clean and have a flat screen tv and work area.
Check in was smooth and quick and very friendly. The hotel has a small store selling typical tourist gifts and also a small snack bar with coffee,sandwiches etc, plus a pretty ok bar area.
The breakfast is a little space and only seem to have eggs (scrambled) some spicy potato and sausages. If other things are available, these certainly are not on offer. Overall an OK stay.
As for the location, the hotel offers a shuttle to the P4 train station (at EWR) which then links up to the trains direct to NYC (7th St by Madison Square Gardens) - all doable within 40 mins - cost of $12.50 one way
On a negative, I did require a late checkout (20:00) and had to pay a full day rate although the hotel was not full.
