The Best Wester looks like it is not in a great area of town, hard to find, no restaurants in it or nearby, not an area to walk around at night anyway.They have a Park and Jet room price which is $60 more than the room.
We are staying at the Sheraton Newark Airport Hotel- but again, we are flying in and they have a free airport shuttle. We are taking a cab to the port ($40). I don't know if they have a parking thing for your car, but you could ask. 973-690-5500 (Helps if you have AAA also)
