I spent much time on the internet searching for a hotel within close proximity to Yankee Stadium. I somehow came across this hotel which when mapped out was only about 3-5 miles away. I read other reviews on trip advisor re: this and other hotels in Fort Lee and as well the Bronx (near Yankee Stadium). I chose this hotel based on these reviews. We drove up from Virginia EARLY in the morning and arrived at about 10 AM. Audi, who was working at the front desk, accomodated our request to check in early by calling housekeeping to see if a King NS room was ready - fortunately for us weary travelers it was and she checked us in right away!! THANK YOU! Not being from the area, and reading other reviews about public transportation to and from the stadium we were hesitant to attemp the bus/train.... routes and after ditching our initial decision to use a cab to and from the game - we instead chose to drive. The hotel provided us with simple written directions which were more than likely correct, we just got a bit confused by the construction at the new stadium.... The breakfast buffet was a bit on the cool side (temperature wise), but for 9.95, all you can eat, near NYC - it was acceptable. The room was fairly spacious and clean. We were on the back side of the building so it was nice and quiet. Our GPS was a lifesaver getting back from the stadium at night, in the rain, after missing the exit once over the bridge. We would definitely use this hotel again when we go back to a game at the NEW stadium.
