Plane Spotting New York Newark

Marriott Hotel
 
Location: ** On the airport perimeter set back from the terminal building.
Spotting: ***

Excellent views from the selected rooms below. Many enthusiasts believe that this is the best hotel for viewing at Newark Great views can be had of the full length of runway 04/22 and 11/29.

Due to the angle of the hotel it is important that you get the correct rooms. The best reported room is 1050 on the top floor, rooms ending in **40-**50 should do the job. From these rooms you get good views of some of the terminal ramps and runways. Booking.com allow you to book a runway facing room (select room with view). 

Other excellent rooms are 832/932 and 1032 although any even ending room no higher than 50 should be ok. Ideally you need a room on the 8th floor or above due to the obstructed views created by the monorail. 

Plenty of aircraft can be read off from the room during daylight but flight tracking would be required at night (you can see the types and color schemes of aircraft as the area is well illuminated but cannot read them off at night)

On clear days a range of movements into LaGuardia and JFK can be seen from airport facing rooms. 

Photos: * No actual reports of photo opportunities from this hotel.
Value: ** From £68 weekend rates

Holiday Inn Newark Airport
 
Location: ** On the airport perimeter with shuttle bus to the airport.
Spotting: ** Ask for a high level room facing the airport and try to get one on the right hand end of the hotel as it would be if you were in the room. A room in this area will give you a distant view of the non Continental piers and also the UPS apron. One of the taxiways is also visible but you need a pair of 20x binoculars to have a lot of success.
Photos: * No actual reports of photo opportunities from this hotel.
Value: * From £75 weekend rates
Book:   The hotel can be booked through any of the following links Booking.com

Howard Johnson Newark Airport
 
Location: ** On the airport perimeter with shuttle bus to the airport.
Spotting: ** On short finals to runway 22R. Many rooms look out to the approach of runway 22L, if you get one of these rooms you dont miss a thing. When it is quiet the odd arrival creeps in on RW22R which brings them in directly over the top of the hotel.
Photos: *** Mid afternoon onwards gives you the chance to take great landing shots on RW22L from the hotel, especially the car park area. 
Value: *** From £45 weekend rates
