Good Bye New York!

A travel blog entry by nobert

We were able to get everything into our suitcases and managed to do it under weight somehow.?!.

After 4 complete days of New York, we saw ourselves having to depart from the Big Apple! But not without memories, shopping and a big visa bill in the mail! :-)

Journey into the Oblivion

A travel blog entry by urban_traveler


When my flight was just landing in Newark Liberty Int'l Airport, I recieved my first glance of the New York City skyline in real life. Oh, i was great! We then transfered to our Airpot Holiday Inn via a shuttle, and i was impressed by the hotel. It was nothing spectacular, just a normal Holiday Inn, but our room looked over to a prison. Pretty …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Plaza Hotel Newark Intl Airport /EWR

    Bad for late night arrivals


    I booked this hotel because I was arriving late in Newark for an overnight layover, and it is advertised as being only one mile from the hotel and having a free shuttle. The free shuttle operates very infrequently (at least late a night) and first serves two other hotels that aren't close. From the time I arrived at the bus stop until got to the hotel was over an hour. Others waited significantly longer. If you want to get to bed soon after arriving at Newark Airport, don't go to this hotel. (Once you do finally arrive, however, the hotel is quite nice for an airport hotel.)

    Great hotel!


    Overall great hotel. For the rate of $99/night had a huge king bed, very cleam room and bathroom, bath and body works toiletries! i was very pleasantly surprised. FYI, if you get the "complimentary breakfast" the room is $170 a night, but only $99 without it...pretty expensive breakfast!



    Technically it's an average hotel.

    Not one of Six Continent's Best


    This is an airport hotel, so the level of expectation wasn't high - the single night stay paradigm implicit in these places seems to mean that staff are more disinterested than at in-town locactions.

    But even these low expectations weren't met.

    The shuttle bus ride was a challenge, as it was a shared ride with other hotels, and the driver's knowledge of English was so limited that she was misdirecting passengers as to when to get off.

    The reception staff on both checkin and checkout were almost surly; despite a "guaranteed" non-smoking room, obtaining it required the duty manager being summoned.

    The dining option was in a rather smoky bar area.

    And the internet access was dead.

    Nice place


    This is a nice clean place to stay for a short visit. I would have liked it more, but the bed was very hard. They need softer beds, nicer sheets, duvet covers. But for the price, it was fine. Nice people. Great service, friendly.

    Better than the average Holiday Inn!


    As a break in our journey to San Antonio, and to see the sights of New York the HI Newark was ideal. It seemed such a better idea to stay there so we could come out of the airport and drop our bags. By using the bus shuttle (back to the airport) and then the monorail (skytrain) we had easy access to the main rail station, and on into NY.

    Great Overnight Stay - Clean and comfortable


    We recently stayed overnight at this hotel so we could catch an early morning flight to Aruba. Thank goodness for Trip Advisor to point us in the right direction for staying in a decent place - we have never been disappointed.

    The hotel is fine but with some caveats


    For the price, this is the best hotel I've found in Newark. Couple of things to watch for - as another reviewer pointed out, you can't get there from here. Even teh cab driver from downtown couldn't find it. And the only way to get downtown is to use the extortionate local limo ($35 in the limo, $8 in a cab). The choice of fancyish restaurant or sports bar is great, too which is a good thing as there are no restaurants within walking distance.

    Great for early flight to UK


    We found this hotel easy to find from the directions given despite the maze of roads around the airport. We had a comfortable room on the 9th floor overlooking the airport (but no noise from it). We ate well at the bar/grill and found the staff very helpful. The hotel has a courtesy bus which links in with the Sky Train, which connects all three terminals. The journey from the hotel took 10 minutes. Parking at the hotel is $15 per night, so get rid of your rental car immediately you arrive! (You can return to the hotel on the same courtesy bus from stop P4 on the Sky Train).

    Get Great Directions


    The Holiday Inn North was the location for a business meeting I attended recently. What I noticed first, is that it's very difficult to find. I was with a friend who was from New Jersey, and we still ended up driving around for at least an hour. Once inside, check-in was easy, and people in general seemed helpful. That was until I tried to order something to eat. The lady, and I use the term loosely, who was taking orders downstairs was as rude as she could possibly be. She fit the typical "rude New Yorker" stereotype. I stayed a few days, and what I discovered was that this person was the exception, not the rule. The gym in the hotel was feeble at best, but at least it was free. In the room, the water ran constantly from the toilet; not on the floor, mind you, but it took the small tank half an hour to fill itself. The television reception was terrible. The flip over metal door lock broke off on the first night, luckily there's a dead bolt as a back up. The telephone reception was worst than the T.V. I have to say though, that the housekeeping staff was excellent. As is my nature, I often left money laying around. These people would pick up the money, dust underneath, and then put it back. I was very impressed because I haven't been as lucky at other, more posh, hotels. The shuttle service to and from the airport was very punctual. At check-out, a very nice lady named Mara helped me arrange my bill so as to make it easier on my finance department. Reimbursements are always a headache anyway, and Mara took the time to break down my bill per day, and print out every day on a separate page. She was wonderful, polite and very professional. All in all, my stay could have been worse, but I think with a little work on the management's part, any future stays could be made better.
