Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alpen Polished, clean and a great choice for out of the city.
This property was well-run and EVERY detail seemed polished. All renovations have held up well. Everything felt of good quality and everything was well maintained.
The lobby was very underwhelming, so I was a little worried, but the rooms were wonderful and modern, smelled great, and the air conditioner was efficient, new and very quiet. Unlike our other two Holiday Inn Express stays, the beds were a dream to sleep in without any saggy sides.
The room furnishings are very modern and compact. Everything fits somewhere. We had a king bed with sofa bed. Our son said the sofa bed was comfy. The King room had everything you could need, tables, chairs, fridge, sink, etc.
The shower pressure was awesome!
Everything seemed very clean...not a hair leftover from previous guests on the bathroom floor. Housekeeping did a great job. Everything seemed dusted. Staff was all friendly.
We all had devices, laptops, tablets, etc....the internet was good and fast. The business center had EVERYTHING you can think of.
Breakfast each morning was above and beyond the other Holiday Inn Express we stayed at. Although I'll never be a fan of carton eggs, these ones were edible. They had different warm choices available each day and plenty of other food choices for our varied group. Each night they had warm tea, coffee, hot chocolate and cold ice water (flavored with lemon and mint).
THE Not-so Good: The bus stop is NOT exactly directly across the hotel as people say. It is a 5-6 minute walk to the lights, then across the street and then back to the stop. There is a median you can't cross. Our first day we left mid afternoon at a "non-peak" time and the bus was late and could barely fit the six of us (and the other 10 people at the stop) standing room only. Although the hotel gives you a lot of information about gates and stops, implementing that information is difficult when you have no idea where you're going. We really had no idea where our stop was on the way back. The sheet said three stops, but it seemed there was only the one hotel stop and then ours.
The following two days we decided to just drive in. I prepaid and reserved a spot at a parking garage between 10th and 11th. We drove in at 8:45 am each day with a small bit of traffic jam and left late night 10-1am with no traffic.
This is a GREAT HOTEL but I would never stay outside of New York again BUT if you're on a strict budget and have an adventurous spirit (busing or driving in after rush hour)..this is a perfect choice.
Keep up the good work HIE Meadowlands!
