Thumbs up

There's absolutely nothing within walking distance of the Doubletree except the Ramada next door.

Come post your question on the East Coast board. You could take the #40 bus which stops on Frontage Road near the hotel and go into downtown Newark to find a liquor store or you could take a cab.

How early are you arriving at EWR and what day of the week? Will you need to eat dinner? Newark is very urban and I wouldn't recommend just wandering around at night without a specific destination. You could combine a liquor run with dinner in Newark's Ironbound District.

How are you getting to Cape Liberty? There is a liquor store outside the entrance to the port. On Sundays it does not open until noon.

138East thank you. We are coming in late and Saturday night and wasn't going to wander around. Heading over to ship around 12 noon Sunday.
Don't want to stop to fill the rum runners while heading to the pier. I think I've read your posts before about Newark so is there a hotel with airport pick up that has stores and shops close by (liquor) --- that i wouldn't fear for my life going to?

there are NO stores within walking distance of ANY hotel in the EWR area....your best bet is to try and get to the one near the pier.......but you want to fill rum runners so that may not be practical....

Sounds like your only choice is to bring a well wrapped bottle in a sealed plastic bag in your checked luggage. You can fill it when you get to the Doubletree.
