We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in September, 2012 while visiting family and seeing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The area around the hotel seemed safe - though the only walking around we did was to go to the Chilis 2 blocks away for dinner. The rooms were very nice and the free breakfast was very good.
Driving in New Jersey (and New York) is fairly stressful if you are not used to it, so when we arrived we were fairly stressed out and rethinking our decision to add this part of our trip... When we asked the front desk what the easiest way was to get to Liberty State Park for our ferry trip the following morning, they suggested a taxi... We took them up on their idea and were pleasantly surprised the next morning to find that it was actually a private car... For $20 each way we were taken directly to the ferry location, and the driver even gave us his cell phone number so when we were on the ferry coming back, we called him and he was waiting for us when we disembarked the ferry. Not having to deal with the stress of driving was well worth that cost and we were very grateful to the hotel staff for suggesting it.
We did not venture into Manhattan, but could see it right across the river.. so I imagine this hotel would be very convenient for sightseeing over there also.
