Our room was very comfortable. We are traveling with an infant and they gave us a very nice roll away crib that was very comfortable for our daughter unlike the normal pack and play. Our room had a full kitchen and was a decent size. We did have their breakfast which is average. They also have a cocktail hour with... More

I got there late at night and although checkin was easy, the room was not what I expected. It was kind of a bedroom, kitchen and living room all in one. Worst part was that one wall behind the bed had no power and the view was of train tracks.

This was my first time staying at an Element hotel and I can tell you that you should too! I was in the area for a football game at Metlife Stadium and it was a great location for it. We spent one day in the city, which is only a short train ride away. We ended up taking an Uber... More

I attended a workshop this week, held at this hotel, so why not stay? I'm happy I did. The studio was well appointed, lighting great, a lovely palette of color. The room was well-appointed, a few stray hairs in the bathroom and sofa, but really no biggie for me, but may be for others. The shower was terrific, body lotion... More

The suites feature all of the amenities of home including full size refrigerator and a 2 burner stove. You get free wifi and the shower is pretty great. All for a very reasonable price considering you can walk 25 feet and get on the PATH into the city.

I could not give the hotel 5 because there are a few things lacking. The hotel is in great condition. The staff is fairly friendly and easy to deal with. The parking situation is a bit confusing, but that is a minor detail. I would happily choose the Element Harrison again if I am in the area.
