You can't beat all newly renovated guest rooms at a hotel just minutes from Rutgers University and steps from numerous restaurants and shopes. This hotel is ideally situated adjacent to I-287 and close to the NJ Turnpike, GS Parkway and Newark Liberty International Airport.
This hotel is generally good. The pillows were a problem. Our problem occured when we arrived home and realized that we had left some clothing hanging in the closet. The front desk told us to call[More]
housekeeping, where we could only leave a message and they did not return the call. We called again and were told that the room would be looked at. No one got back to us. This must happen frequently in hotels, yet no one was willing to take responsibility for the problem and inform us. Other hotels have found things left in the room and just mailed them to the home address without a phone call having been made. I think this is sloppy on the part of a hotel chain that includes some pretty upper end hotels. It left us feeling sour about the experience. [Less]
Let me get started by saying this hotel is not perfect for tourists visiting New York. It is around 1 hour on public transit (buses/subway), or a 20/30 minute drive. If you're willing to travel in,[More]
however, it is a great place. I personally prefer staying just outside of cities to get a real true sense of atmosphere and it lets my indulge in more local activities.
The hotel is located next to the highway, however noise was not a problem for me. The only noise that was a problem was actually from the car park whereby people would often stand around talking etc. This usually stopped by around 11:30pm though.
The room was great and has what you need. A nice, comfortable bed. A clean bathroom with a shower that works and has a good range of temperatures. The hairdryer in the room wasn't overly top notch, but that is too be expected and it appeared to be a pretty common hotel hairdryer.
Check-in was quick, with the WI-FI password being given to me without the need to be asked for. WI-FI was pretty fast for Facebook browsing etc, however at peak periods (during the evening) it did get slow and would on occasion completely lose connection. I did try to download a program that was 358mb and it would have taken 7 hours to download. Not great, as usually it takes me seconds.
Value for money was relatively good, however be sure to check around for the best price. I didn't and unfortunately was caught out by that.
Overall, though it was a great stay and I would definitely return and recommend it to others. [Less]
This hotel was a perfect find for us. A reasonable price and excellent facility, comfortable bed and excellent staff. The updated furnature and lamps were nice and functional. The high speed internet[More]
access was really fast and it didn't dump you every time you walked away from your iPad. Breakfast was excellent, you just need to be patient with the available tables vs the people being served. The real plus here was the staff in the hotel, from the front desk to the food service people to the folks cleaning the rooms and sidewalk, this was a great find ! It's close to Penn Station so it will be our "place to go" when we next visit the Big Apple. [Less]
