I recently spent 3 nights in the Candlewood Suites Jersey City NJ. I was visiting my son who lives in the city while working on a contracting job nearby. I also planned several days trips into Manhattan for the theatre, shopping and sightseeing.
I found the hotel common area clean and tastefully decorated. Our suite had one good sized bedroom, one spacious bathroom and a large open area with living room containing a sofa bed and a fully equipped kitchen. I found the rooms to be clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The hotel staff were all very helpful in answering our questions and providing extra services we needed. The hotel was located only a ten minute walk to the Newport NJ/NY PATH station and the hotel provided a free shuttle bus ride there which was welcomed. There is a very nice mall, the Newport Mall, located only a few minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel is located in a very clean and safe area of Jersey City. There were a few restaurants close enough to walk to in the area as well.
My experience at this hotel was close to a perfect one. My only complaint was that the heating/air conditioning unit was a bit noisy and was difficult to control. The fan constantly ran no matter what temperature you set the unit at.
I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again.
