“Great hotel and location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We came into New Jersey for a family event just for the weekend and were very happy with our stay at the Renaissance. The check-in process was quick. Parking is free in front of the hotel.
The staff is friendly and helpful. We asked about getting into New York City and the woman at the front desk was able to provide us with a bus schedule and a map as well. There is literally a bus stop right across the street from the hotel.
There is a restaurant and bar on the premises. We had drinks and an appetizer one evening before heading out and service was good. There is also an indoor pool and workout room, which we were not able to take advantage of, but it did look very nice. There is a small business center with computers with internet and printer.
The room itself was very clean. The bathroom was updated and the décor was modern overall.
The only complaint I have was that you can hear the traffic from outside. I have been to other major hotels that are near highways or busy areas in general and somehow they are able to block out outside noise. I was still able to fall asleep. The bedding itself was very comfortable.
The location is great because you are close to major expressways and other major sights such as the Meadowlands stadium.
We were definitely happy with our stay and recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the New Jersey or New York City area.

We chose this hotel since it was so close to NYC. We were pleased with the rate and free parking.

Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Izzy, who told us that he would upgrade us to a jacuzzi suite and give us access to the Club. Such a nice surprise. We had a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline at night.

The accommodations were amazing. The room was spotless the exercise equipment was new and state of the art. The bed was comfortable with crisp linens. There were a variety of pillows (I like flat ones!) and a very cozy bathrobe.

The entire staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is located in an industrial area, but once you enter it, you forget where you are.

Why pay those high prices in NYC? This is my new favorite hotel.

We stayed this last weekend just for a quick, 2 night family getaway so we could go use the pool and go to Medieval Times. From the moment we walked in, we were warmly greeted by each staff member we came in contact with. The staff treated my two boys (ages 8 and 10) with respect and answered all their questions.

Our room was missing the refrigerator, but one was immediately brought up and for our trouble, we received free WiFi!! After ordering room service, we received a call to make sure we were satisfied. Jason, the manager, made sure my kids were happy, even replying to their secret coded message. The staff went out of their way to please and we felt like we must be the only ones there.

The hotel was very clean, the rooms, lobby, pool and fitness center were all very clean and stocked. There are ear buds and fresh water in the fitness center, upscale towels at the pool, video cables in the room and a full size hair dryer in the bathroom. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Unfortunately, we did not have time to eat in the restaurant so I can't comment on that.

The hotel is good if you want to be near the Meadowlands or the city. But the surrounding area is just highways, nothing much to see.

Room Tip: We didn't have a balcony, but if you have a city view, a balcony may be nice. You would probabl...

We booked three rooms here last weekend and went up with two other families to visit Medieval Times. I travel all the time and this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review. The staff provided the best customer service I have ever encountered. Every individual bent over backwards to be friendly and accommodating to our group. They repeatedly checked to be sure we were happy, sent up more free extra room service, and even offered to cut up my son's pancakes in the morning. They made the kids feel so welcome. It became a joke among our group that they must be bored with the letdown after the Superbowl and just excited to see guests. There were many other people staying there, but they made us feel like the only guests. Nice hotel and excellent customer service!

Room Tip: You can see NYC from some of the club rooms.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The club lounge sets up a nice breakfast and snacks at the end of the day. The rooms were large, clean and well lit. Service excellent. Check-in staff happy and cheerful. Steakhouse okay, but aiming to please. Beds extremely comfortable. Room quiet. Two small complaints. First the complimentary shampoo and conditioner are awful and need to be replaced. They leave your hair in such a state you need to rewash. Second the pool is over chlorinated, so much so that it took three showers to get the smell off my skin.

We stayed here during our trip to the Super Bowl & had a great stay. The staff was very attentive & friendly * went out of their way to help us. The location is not the best for walking. It is in a triangle between busy highways. The concierge lounge offered a special breakfast & a special light supper because of the Super Bowl. We had a couple of small problems with our room, but those were taken care of promptly.

My husband was staying here for a business trip and I decided to tag along. The hotel is clean and the staff is very nice. They have a concierge lounge on the 9th floor that offers breakfast, snacks and beverages. It has a pretty good view of the city and everything is free.

I liked the room. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

There is a bar and a restaurant off the lobby area. Very nice hotel, close to NY city and convenient to get on and off the NJ turnpike.
