We were elated to find another high quality Homewood Suites so very close to Manhattan. The neighborhood, hotel and parking area felt completely safe. It was a huge bonus to have the upper scale shops and restaurants practically attached to the hotel. We walked to the Greek Taverna restaurant which was priced well and offered good food. This hotel is right down the street from Imperial Pier in Weehawken which offers great ferry service to Manhattan. Again, very nice and safe. We were not able to use the hotel's free shuttle service to the ferry but were glad it is available for upcoming visits.
