During the hurricane Sandy, which has left almost all jersey population without power, my sister and I decided to stay at this location until our power is restored. We were welcomed as if we had visited our own family. Later, the Sonesta hotel also lost power unfortunately that day late evening, but that didn't prevent their dedicated staff including a kind general manager from caring for their guests; they did it with a professional attitude and a smile on their face, overall they went above and beyond what was required of them to make us home. Power loss had surely cancelled almost everyone's plans but this place managed to keep it going! You could see the general manager cooking breakfast for everyone and barbecuing in the morning, and you can get almost anything you need from the front desk (from flashlights to extra linens and towels etc), without forgetting the movies they showed every night; just to keep that smile and rest on families hearts. We stayed there for a week during which they managed to get a generator and power back, but our experience and memories of what, such generous people can do for each other would remain unforgettable.
