Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Newark, New Jersey!
As a gateway to New Jersey, Newark -- financial, commercial, transportation, and cultural nucleus of the Garden State –- provides glimpses of more than 350 years of development, from founding as a theocracy by Puritans from nearby Connecticut seeking relief from political discontent. Newark offers multifaceted entertainment, dining, culture, and sports. Since founding in 1666, Newark has changed from a rural, agrarian settlement to a major urban center, and with its Train-to-Plane, Newark now boasts one of the world's most streamlined transportation systems. Reflecting history are gothic churches to a modern college complex. Academic institutions include the Newark campus of Rutgers, the state University of New Jersey, Seton Hall University School of Law, and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). Landmarks include the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on Broadway, the Dutch colonial farmhouse known as the Plume on Broad Street, the North Reformed Church, also on Broad and built between 1857-1859 without steel or iron, and the New Jersey Bell Telephone Company, constructed in American Perpendicular style with massive Egyptian-style bas relief.
Washington Street's four-story Polhemus House was an Underground Railroad runaway slave stop, and Ballantine House, also on Washington, has one of the nation's few examples of embossed leather walls. Ferry Street, a main artery through the Ironbound Section -- bordered by railroad tracks -- is the commercial heart of Newark's Spanish and Portuguese community. The Kreuger-Scott mansion, the most expensive home built in Newark, is a 40-room baroque mansion constructed in 1888-89 for about $250,000. The Newark City subway, a 3.8 mile underground and ground-level rapid transit system, is one of the nation's few using trolley cars, operating in what was once the bed of the Morris Canal. From beneath Penn Station to its terminus at the Newark-Belleville border, takes 11 minutes. Branch Brook Park, developed in the 1890s as part of the nation's oldest park system, is noted for lakes, streams, and spring splendor of its 3,500 varied pink and white cherry trees, more than in Washington, D.C. For entertainment, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center ranks as one of the world's finest production venues. Newark lodging options range from bed and breakfasts to grand old hotels and newer luxury hotels.
