Situated on the grounds of Newark Liberty International Airport, this Marriott hotel offers complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle service, making layovers a snap. If you have time to spare, there's plenty to occupy you in the surrounding area. A 10-minute drive from the hotel, Jersey Gardens outlet mall features more than 200 discount stores, including Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue. When night falls, don your fancy new clothes and catch a classical concert at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, 5 miles (4.8 kilometers) away.
Feeling less formal? Head 14 miles (23 kilometers) north to the Meadowlands Sports Complex for headlining musicians, sports events, and horse-racing. A half-hour drive from the hotel lands you in Manhattan, where you can visit Times Square, shop on fashionable Fifth Avenue, tour world-famous museums, and survey the city from the dizzying heights of the Empire State Building.
After a long day of sightseeing (or a long flight into town), relax over dinner in the Marriott's onsite restaurant, Aviation Grill, or order room service which is available during limited hours. Work off the extra calories in Marriott's 24-hour fitness center, or take a dip in the indoor/outdoor pool--it's open until late evening.
After your sweat session or swim, retreat to a spacious, modern guestroom featuring signature Marriott Revive beds with plush down duvets and pillows and high-thread-count linens. Watch your favorite HBO show on the 42-inch flat-screen TV, or check your flight status with high-speed wired Internet access (surcharge). If you need to print boarding passes, this Newark Marriott's business center is open 24 hours. When it's time to retire, soundproof windows ensure that you'll sleep like a baby. You'll breathe easy too: this Marriott is entirely smoke-free.
