Homewood Suites by Hilton Edgewater - NYC Area
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Edgewater
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 30, 2007

This is a nice alternate location for New York City tourists; although you are not in the middle of the action, you are close by, with great views and good service. This hotel is on a very busy street (River Road) and is part of a shopping mall with interesting stores and restaurants. It is convenient to Fort Lee, Teterboro Airport, and environs.

Arrival is a bit tricky if you are driving: you have to go up the driveway, circle through the mall, and come around the other side. Once you've mastered the approach it's easy, and parking in the enclosed garage or mall is free.

Lots of PROS to report here: Check-in was very easy and professional. The king-size bed was extremely comfortable, with excellent linens & pillows. Great views up and down the Hudson River. Nicely furnished suites, with near-fully functional and equipped kitchen, hide-a-bed couch and table grouping, 32-inch standard (4X3) flatscreen TV, an elaborate clock-radio, two telephones- one cordless, iron & board, faux granite bath, separate sink & vanity area, excellent curtains, and a ton of free food opportunities. Their free breakfast, as with the Hampton chain, is excellent, and not to be missed. There was a pleasant gym area, with sauna and large jacuzzi, properly maintained, (although no place to put your towel and stuff except on the floor). Jacuzzi hours were very uncertain: there were three different set of hours posted in different places.

A few CONS: the shower leaked steadily onto the floor, so the bathmat was critical. Door tracks need recaulking. TV reception was quite poor, and the menus somewhat incomprehensible (although there is a player for VHS, DVD and CD, which is handy). It took us almost our entire stay to realize there were two different TV remote controls, and we had the wrong one! Duh. Some instructions would be nice. The rug was quite stained in several areas, and a bulb was burned out in the vanity area. You may think some lights are actually broken at first, but they are simply VERY slow-to-warm-up energy saver bulbs. A little weird, but good for midnight bathroom visits I guess. Another issues is windows wich open fully on upper floors, with no safety guards of any kind. Even the screen was missing from one of ours, and you could see it on the lobby roof below. Might be a serious concern with children.

Rates float around $175-195 (double) for the studio suite. Check Triple-A rates if you can. I was able to get a Saturday one-night stay for $165, ("weekend rate"), which disappeared from the site right after I booked it.

Overall, this is a clean and pleasant place to stay in this area, and an excellent value compared to New York City prices.

I worked 4 separate weeks in the Bronx and stayed in the Homewood Suites Edgewater each time. A quick commute across the GW Bridge it was also fast to Manhattan on the ferry. This hotel offers a good location, quality rooms and some fabulous extras.

I am a regular with Residence Inns, Homewood Suites and Staybridge Suites. This one was at the upper range of such properties in quality yet was mid range in price. It is a new property with large rooms of varied floor plans.

The complimentary breakfast and evening dinner were better than most offered by this chain and the other similar properties mentioned above. The service was average but there were a couple of staff who shone. The view to the city was beautiful. The surrounding area is in advanced stages of urban renewal and offers good shopping.

Good things are always fleeting. On my last stay the food service was slightly dimished from my three previous stays. Also the prices had gone up. Don't write this place off yet but keep an eye on the more recent reviews. I'd sure come back.

Having always stayed in Manhattan when I visited the city, I was disappointed when I learned I was going to be staying across the Hudson in New Jersey this trip.

Boy, was I wrong!

What a treat! This is a fairly new hotel right near the water with views (depending on your room) of the Manhattan skyline!

On the ground level is a new shopping center with restaurants and all the normal "mall" shops.

The best part is the price ~ a nice suite for just over $200 ~ and a free shuttle to the nearby ferry landing!

Taking the short ferry ride over the Hudson River to Manhattan was a delight and offered great photo opportunities! Only $12 round trip. That included the cost of the bus on the other side that would take you to various places in the city.

I see no reason to ever stay in Manhattan again. This hotel is the best kept New York secret! Bravo!!!
