Newark Hilton Penn Station hotel was perfect for pre cruise

Recommended Posts

This hotel was perfect for taking PATH from Newark into lower Manhattan. We flew in Friday afternoon to sightsee NYC before our Canada/NE cruise on Sunday. The room was ready when we arrived and we cleaned up a bit before simply walking across the elevated walkway directly into Penn Station. Never having been in a train station before, it took us several minutes to find a machine selling tickets. (we were looking for a live person!) Another several minutes spent locating our departure point, and off we went! We arrived at the Oculus and then toured the One World Trade Center area before traveling to the top for a late afternoon view.  We then ate at an Italian restaurant before taking PATH back to Newark. Easy peasy for people like us who live in a town with only a yellow blinking light! Wanted to let others know there are places to eat nearby this hotel, all walkable! For quick easy breakfast or lunch there is a place in the elevated walkway right outside the hotel. Large cafe/grill type place. For a relaxing dinner with a nice selection of various pub type food is a place called Bella's Pub. This is a quick, short walk through Penn Station to the back door. Look across the street and there is Bella's! This was a great experience for us and the warnings of nowhere to eat near this hotel are unfounded.  Uber picked us up for cruise within minutes and it was an easy trip to Cape Liberty. Cost for Uber was about $15.
