take care with your choice of travel to and from the airport. I chose this hotel based on trip advisor recommendations and would definitely go back again. Very friendly staff, comfortable rooms, no frills but good value for money and the nearby Heartland Brewery was a great place to eat when eateries in Times Square were full to bursting. However, the trip from Newark airport to Manhatten did not appear straightforward so I opted for the shuttle bus operator SuperShuttle. The journey to the hotel was fine but the return journey was a nightmare! We were kept waiting for 45 minutes over our "pick up window" which means we waited 75 mins in total. I called to check progress and was advised that the driver was 5 blocks away! A further check 20 mins later, I was told he was 3 mins away. After a further 15 mins I called again to be told he was pulling up outside. Needless to say, he wasn't but when he did arrive he had parked on another street and we were 'encouraged' ( hand waving in my face) to run after him with our luggage. Do go to this hotel but be careful about your choice of transfers!
