Newark – Best Western
Comfortable, affordable and accessible
Newark was, generally, just a stage in my flights from and to Portugal. Among all the hotels I used, this one reached the best ratio quality/price. And, though I arrived by car (which uses to be quite complex), it was easy to find the hotel and to move around. Because in those occasions the hotel is just to sleep, tranquility, cleanliness, a comfortable bed and a working bathroom is everything I need. And I had it.

Newark – Ramada Plaza
A Nightmare to find
I never had so much trouble searching for a determined hotel as I did with this one. I took a taxi from the airport, and he got lost. For almost one hour, with GPS and radio support, the driver made his best, but… it was hard. The hotel is OK, no airport or traffic noise, good rooms and bathrooms, and an acceptable breakfast.

Saddle Brook – Holiday inn
“New York” in campground
This tower, in an apparently quiet area, seemed a very good place to sleep. It wasn’t. The continuous noise of the adjacent highway, in association with jet-lag gave us two horrible nights. I have nothing to complaint about the hotel and its staff, but, when you can’t sleep… And, (not the hotel’s fault) I couldn’t stop thinking that, in my trip brochure, I was supposed to be sleeping in New York…
Unique Qualities: Large, comfortable, but noisy.
