“Excellent for NYC and Joisee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

This hotel was absolutely excellent. we had a two room suite and for the price wepaid it was outstanding. The room was clean and new. Service was great and there was an NJ Transit bus stop 1Min from the hotel that was 20 mins to NYPA bus terminal. Just two words...STAY HERE.

Although I couldn't find a stair well to save my life in a fire the hotel was great. Food in am and evening was great. Loved the meals. Executive office was useless because I couldn't download important docs. Otherwise great hotel.

This is an all suite hotel-on a major road but quiet and nicely furnished with great amenities.Stayed here while visiting family in Rutherford and really enjoyed it-excellent bed and lovely kitchen area.

This is my favorite hotel in the area. Although right off rt17, there is very little highway noise in the rooms. All the rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast and dinners offered are decent and there is plenty of options considering its really only a small buffet. Food is restocked quickly. If you don't like any of the options, there are several places to eat within walking distance such as Panera Bread.The staff is the best! I'm there quite often and many not only remember my face but my name as well. Considering how many guests they see weekly, I find that quite impressive. Hotel is convenient to Teterboro airport, the stadium, and NYC.

Room Tip: If you are concerned about highway noise which is very little, ask for a room facing the side or bac...

Our family planned a visit to New York City for a few days, and we decided to stay at this Homewood Suites in East Rutherford, NJ, instead of staying at a hotel in The City. It was a smart choice.

By way of location, the hotel was conveniently located on Route 17 just outside of NYC. The Lincoln Tunnel is perhaps 10 minutes or so from the hotel, to give you context.

The hotel is rather new and well maintained, and had ample complimentary parking. The check in process was smooth and the front desk staff were courteous and efficient.

Our suite was very nicely appointed. We were a family of 5 so we chose a 2 bedroom suite, which consisted of two separate bedrooms - each with their own full bathroom - a full kitchen and a living room with a sleep sofa. We had a nice view of the skyline of The City in the distance, which was quite nice. The beds, including the sleep sofa, we're comfortable and had quality linens. The suite was well soundproofed, as we never heard anyone outside our suite. There was no room safe, which would have been a nice option.

The hotel offers a full & hot complimentary breakfast daily and, a complimentary hot dinner/supper (on weeknights). The selection was extensive, fresh and hot, for both the breakfast and the dinner. The dinner included wine. The eating area was very nice and clean. The staff kept the area clean and the food fresh and plentiful.

The front desk staff were very helpful. When I went down to inquire about potential parking lot options in The City, they dissuaded me from doing so (advertised parking for $35/day really become $75/day and that sort of thing), and encouraged us to use their complimentary shuttle to a nearby bus stop, which had a bus that would take us directly into The City and deposit us at the Port Authority Bus Station at Times Square. I was a bit leery about taking the city bus, but we took her up on it. The shuttle took us quickly to the bus stop the next morning, and the bus arrived within minutes. The bus seemed to have its own lane going through the Lincoln Tunnel, as we arrived at Times Square in about 25 minutes or so, an astonishing travel time during morning rush hour. And just like that, we were in Times Square and ready to hit the sights. We reversed the process to get back, and it was quite easy as well. A quick call to the hotel as the bus approached the stop across the street from where we got on that morning, and within 10 minutes the shuttle arrived to bring us back to the hotel. A major bonus of the hotel front desk staff saving us from being scammed / ripped off by a city parking lot was the realization when we got back just how convenient & how little $ it was for all of us to get to the city by shuttle & bus. If after all this you'd rather take your car, like I said the hotel is close to the Lincoln Tunnel if you prefer to drive instead.

The complimentary wifi worked very well in our suite and the indoor pool was clean & enjoyed by the kids.

We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite that overlooks the skyline of NYC, it's a nice view.

Dear Travelling TFP;

Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor, your comments are truly appreciated. I am glad to hear that we are a "Smart Choice When Visiting NYC". We are actually located only 8 miles from Times Square in NYC. When commuting into the city from here public transportation is always the best way to go. I see that you had a good experience using our public transportation system. Again thank you for recommending us and hopefully you will stay with us again in the near future. Cheers!

I have stayed here frequently on business, always enjoy my stay. It is fairly new, well kept, attractively decorated, courteous staff. They serve food in the evening that is comfortable and well prepared. Also serve a decent breakfast, better than most, but not the cook to order you get at many of the Hilton garden inns. The rooms are spacious , kitchen is reasonably equipped, and the part I like the best is the tv has an hdmi port so I can stream Netflix as an option to the vast wasteland of cable tv.
I would also recommend this for a weekend getaway close to NYC and meadowlands.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east side have a view of the city skyline- can see the Empire State and the new WTC.

After a fire at our home in October we quickly needed to find place to stay that was close to our kids school but also offered enough room for a family of four for an extended period of time. Our only knowledge of the Homewood Suites in East Rutherford was when we used to pass it while we ate at the Baja Fresh across the road. We were heading back to a family members house when we decided to stop. We were promptly greeted by Joe at the front desk. He immediately offered to show us the facilities and rooms. We were very impressed by the size of the two bedroom suites so we decided this would be the place for us to stay for next few months. After receiving insurance company approval we called and spoke to Tamara who immediately began the reservation process. Our insurance company does things a little differently when it comes to billing but that was not a deterrent to Tamara. With the assistance of general manager Tom we were able to secure a beautiful suite on the 4th floor with great views of NYC and MetLife Stadium.

Little did we know that what was supposed to be a few weeks stay turned into over 3 months. Its no exaggeration to say that our stay here kept us sane during a very trying time. We were here during Hurricane Sandy, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Through it all we always felt relaxed and at peace.

Everyone here goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. The staff at the front desk always made sure our children were happy and that we did not want for anything. The staff preparing the food for both breakfast and dinner were amazing and accomodated any special dietary needs we had. The housekeepers always made sure we had a spotless, fully stocked room. Top to bottom I could not find one fault with this place. My kids loved the pool and basketball court, my wife loved that we were able to do laundry on site, I loved the gym and sauna, etc.

After over 3 months our jouney came to an end a few days ago. We were actually sad to leave the Homewood Suites behind. We made some nice friends and shared some great memories. My kids enjoyed themselves so much they asked if we could spend our next vacation there even though we only live ten minutes away.

I will end this by saying kudos to Tom and his wonderful staff including but not limited to Tamara, Kevin, Joe, Chris, Caroleena, Marvin, Blanca, Nancy, James, Manny, Olga. Its not often you come across a place like the Homewood Suites in East Rutherford, NJ. Maybe one day we will take that vacation ten minutes from home just so we can stay here again!!
