If you really mean Newark's Penn Station(not NY Penn), the Hilton Gateway is across the street. You should be able to afford it: Newark Hotels - Hilton Newark Penn Station Hotel, NJ - New Jersey

If your plan is to visit NYC, why not stay at a hotel in NYC? I'm assuming you want to stay in Newark because you think it will be cheaper. Not so. You can find plenty of comparable hotels in midtown. That's not to knock staying in Jersey...I just think that it would be a lot less hassle to stay in the place you actually want to visit.

He said Newark , sheesh why are you telling him there cheaper hotels in NYC? Taxes will get you there , just a simple drink at a restaurant in NYC will cost you 2$ more then Jersey. Staying in NJ means he can take the Train to the beach or West to the Mountains.

That's a good point that if he stayed in NJ he would have the additional option of touring NJ.

However, he says he wants to "take a bite out of the Big Apple" and his other thread mentions Times Square, so I assumed he only wanted to tour NYC. In which case, all I'm saying is that if you're gonna spend $125 to stay in Newark near Penn Station, you can spend $125 to stay in a hotel right in midtown, and you don't have to worry about commuting on your vacation. A lot of tourists are under the mistaken belief that you can find a $50 motel in NJ if you want to visit the "Big Apple".

But its cheaper in NJ , even if you find a same price in NY the taxes on food and drinks will put such a burden on you. It cost me the other day .50 more on a drink then in NJ.
