Our daughter graduated from Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School across the street at The State Theater. This was the perfection location for 7 family members to stay. The staff was very friendly especially Xavier at the front desk

This is a favorite destination for a romantic getaway. The Heldrich is an elegant hotel in a perfect location. We enjoy walking across the street to the State Theatre or George Street Theater for a fantastic show and then fine dining is only steps away. New Brunswick is a great walkable town with lots of shops and nightlife as well.... More

Went for a brief graduation day. Location is beautiful in downtown New Brunswick, which has recently been transformed into a beautiful college town. The hotel is well appointed and maintained. Room service quick and good. Would stay there again if needed.

We pulled up to the hotel door and the car was on an incline, with the passenger side being high. I must not have eaten my Wheaties, because it took me three tries to push open the door on the passenger side, all while an employee stood watching. While the person might not have been a doorman, I had hoped... More

Took my husband to the Heldrich for the night of his birthday. They have special rates for New Jersey residents. We got a corner King Room which was very large and nicely appointed. The Beds were very comfortable. We did spa treatments to celebrate the birthday. The Massages we had were excellent. The service at the hotel was excellent. The... More

My sister and I recently spent a couple of nights at New Brunswick's best hotel. First, I have to say that the town is dramatically different from what I experienced when I went to school there in the 70's. Our room overlooked a beautiful square in the town's theatre district. The bell hop efficiently took our bags to our room... More

I stayed for a business meeting and found the hotel very comfortable. The front desk staff was very helpful upon my arrival, and my room was clean and comfortable and overlooked the beautiful square. The conference space in the hotel is first rate- I would highly recommend a meeting here too.

This was a beautiful place to stay for our anniversary! Everyone is friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern and clean. The parking seems like it could be a bit tricky but we got lucky because we had an accessible spot at the side of the building. Things were a bit pricey at the restaurant and the Internet was definitely... More

I went to my 25 year Rutgers Reunion last weekend and stayed at the Heldrich for 2 nights. What can I say - it is a nice, upscale hotel in New Brunswick. If you are in town for anything to do with Rutgers or J&J or anything right in the city of New Brunswick it is a perfect place to... More

This hotel is very conveniently located for all those who has any business whatsoever with the Rutgers University, I stayed here while I was in New Brunswick visiting Rutgers University. The price is on a higher side for all that you get in hotel itself and a bigger down side is that Wi-Fi in the hotel is chargeable; barring these... More
