We recently had a 3 day conference at your facility in Hasbrouk Heights, NJ. During the conference, we had to sit at very small, wobbly tables, and had Zero elbow room, which made it very difficult to take notes or open any materials. We did have lunch and coffee provided, which was excellent. Your dining service and food were very... More

Stayed after a missed flight from Newark airport - hotel was fine, bit on the pricey side for what it offered and breakfast wasn't included in the price. Unlikely to stay again, but only because I hope that next time I won't miss my flight...

The rooms here are generally nice and comfortable. The fact that there is a shuttle every half an hour is good, and they were quick to help me with problem concerning the fridge. Not even 5 minutes I asked for assistance and someone was there to accompany me to rectify it. They did have a a restaurant on the first... More

This property needs work. It needs painting on woodwork and other areas. The hotel had an odor, like cigarette smoke had permeated the walls even though it was a non smoking room. The room was clean, but the bed was lumpy and had foam pillows. It is a dry hotel, too. No bar.

Staff was not friendly. Rooms have old decor, carpets, etc. Bathroom toilet was not in top shape. Hotel does not include breakfast and breakfast is ordered to a restaurant that is not affiliated to hotel (food cannot be charged to room, has to be paid immediately). Not terrible, but maybe for $20-$30 could have gotten something much better... I am... More

We complained again refusing to stay in a smelly... More
