Recommended Hotel: Element
Why: Spacious Rooms, Good Value, Complimentary Area and Airport Shuttles
There’s one hotel in walking distance of the Newark PATH station, the Element. It’s a modern hotel with a minimalist vibe. The on-site eateries even have names that evoke a sense of wellness: Rise (breakfast), Relax (evening reception), Restore (gourmet pantry), and The Station (bar with food). There’s an indoor pool and gym, and smoking is prohibited on the property. Guests love the large rooms with free wifi. Overall, we recommend the Element Hotel to people who don’t mind staying half an hour outside Manhattan to get a better value hotel room.
