My work takes me to this area of New Jersey at least a couple of times a year, and I always choose to stay at the Hyatt House (formerly Hotel Sierra). The room is always squeaky clean and comfortable, with a big flat-screen TV in both the living area and in the bedroom. I love having a full-size refrigerator, a microwave, dishwasher, and small stove (with a little store downstairs where you can buy a frozen dinner, salad, or sandwiches if you arrive on a late flight and are hungry). The best part about staying here is the complimentary breakfast in the morning featuring an omelet station, or just cereal, yogurt, or baked goods if you need to grab and go. Plus the "evening social" is terrific, featuring wine and beer with cheese and crackers, salads, soups, and at least one hot item each evening Monday through Thursday. After a long day of work it is great to come back and relax with a glass of wine and something to eat, and not have to worry about going out for a meal. There is a grocery store catty-corner across the street if you wish to buy something yourself, and a big Wegman's is on Route 202, not too far away.
I always make use of the fitness center when I'm here, and recently the hotel has upgraded to very nice treadmills with built-in TVs or iPod docking areas.
The welcome is always friendly when I arrive, and it's nice to be wished a "good morning" or "good evening" as I come and go.
The only complaint I have had during my many stays here is that sometimes there is noise in the room from the HVAC or from the refrigerator (especially if the ice maker is on and dropping ice in the middle of the night!). I solved this problem easily by closing the double doors between the bedroom and living areas.
This will remain my choice for a home away from home.
