My husband and I stayed at this hotel in June 2005. It was in the next block of the Newport shopping mall. You can walk (5-10 min) to the PATH station that brings you to Manhattan in 15 min. There is also the station of New Jersey Transit just across the street. You don’t need a car to go to anywhere from this hotel. You can see beautiful Manhattan from the park on the Hudson River. Our room had very noisy air-conditioner, but it was a nice stay.
