I would like to start with the best part for me in this hotel...its the free shuttle services. For somebody new in the foreign country, renting a car, learning the rules etc can be a big pain so these shuttle services come in very handy. They pick up and drop people to their office, mostly pharma companies in New Jersey. They also can arrange for shuttle services for shopping and other nearby areas. So this is a big plus!!!!!
the staff is really helpful and jolly. they will make your stay really wonderful. i kinda just landed on the hotel without actually booking the room and they were really helpful in accomodating me and keeping my bags till i return from office! the staff are also very very professional. i noticed that if you ask them to pick you up from the mall or something at 7pm they will be there at 6.50pm.
mostly the people who stay here work in nearby pharma companies...so thats a big plus. the downside is that...the area is sparsely populated and apart from Shoprite and Starbucks there are no major places where you can find anything. Theres a signal though so atleast you can cross the road!
the breakfast is great...though repetitive if you are staying in for more than a month. the evening snack or bistro as the french(?) call it is okish...i am from mumbai....so it mainly salads and stuff....too bland for indian taste anyways.
the rooms are great...you can cook and stuff. the also have a small store in the hotel itself which i really like coz its great to pickup something you have forgot. it doesnt have much variety...but its great to pickup a light snack or so!
so who should stay here?
if you are working in nearby areas then its a great place to stay. you can do by without a car as well! the bridgewater commons mall, shoprite , walmart , best buy , borders book store etc are all nearby and with those shuttle services you can actually go there. NYC is 1.5 from here by train...so its good for weekend travelling as well. the staff is really friendly and also helps you figure out whats the best way of getting some place and coming back :-)
if you are mainly a tourist...then i wouldnt recommend this place. its too much into the middle of nothing! the closest thing of anything of that can be called an attraction is princeton university which is about half an hour from here...though you would need a car. this place is close to raritan station...so you can easily get to new york city and stuff. the public transport here in new jersey sucks bigtime and you have to plan well ahead and wait for a long time!!!
