In general the hotel
looks to be a nice place to stay as the rooms are comfortable, bathroom is clean. Everything you need is waiting for you in your room (even liquid for cleaning your teeth!). However it looks like they seek additional incomes by any fees or fares which affect the hotel's prestige in fact.
The weak point is the shuttle's punctuality. It hardly leaves the hotel at the agreed hour and goes to terminals first not to the P4 point. It's ok when you need to get a flight but definitely not ok when you plan to catch another bus connection (late on leave+trip among terminals, so better avoid being short of time unless you want to miss your connection).
The very strange thing is the payment policy which puts a very dark and negative light on the hotel's image. They charged me for "no show" ("no show" due to weather conditions in NY with the flights canceled) which is fully ok for me, although:
- the full amount for the full staying (not for only one night no show) was blocked at my current account
- the reservation was canceled despite the earlier email confirmation from my side
- when I managed to renew the reservation, they blocked me again the full amount (! second time!)
- when I arrive after one day and I paid while the check-in the full amount for the whole staying was blocked third time (!!; another card)
As the result as of today I have c.a. 650 usd blocked instead of c.a.250 usd and I'm full of hope to have it unblocked soon.
Moreover, when the reservation was renewed, I lost the initial promo price and I had to pay extra c.a 50usd.
So, please be careful when do any payments at Howard Johnson Newark.
The rest looks really fine and ok.
