“Beautiful facility”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Spent a wonderful night here at the beginning of a sister's weekend up the Hudson River. The public places and the rooms were beautifully appointed. The staff was warm and welcoming. My only regret was to be there on the weekend so the concierge room was not open.

This was a great place to stay with easy access to many attractions. It is also very close to public transit to NYC. Hotel was nicely laid out & service was friendly. We were able to enjoy some harness racing over at the track & go to the city for dinner & a show.

Not the same hotel as the pictures. The shower was dangerous, funny threshold that was very slippery, the water slipped right on the floor. This room is a hazard for anyone, and I am not handicapped. The can only imagine how it is for someone unsure on their feet.

The air conditioner rumbled like a truck all night and did not cool anything. The pool was old, dirty and not inviting. The hot tub was stained, the entire hotel smelled like chlorine, and my wife and I both had an itchy red rash when we got out, and we had to shower in that awful shower.

Your associate at the desk was confused when I checked in, so when I left I saved my time by not saying anything. But I see someone else did according to other reviews on Trip Advisor, but nothing was done.

Seems the shower and A/C is an ongoing issue.

It is very close to NY and the Meadowlands, but I will try somewhere else. If I had paid, I would have asked for a refund. I used my Marriott points for the room, I emailed them and asked for my points back. Very very disappointed. Ruined our time.

Room Tip: I am not sure.

Stayed there with my handicapped travel companion. Requested a roll in shower. The shower had a metal plate on the floor of the shower. This created a problem with not having a level surface for someone that has mobility problems. When I complained at front desk, the maintenance man was there and said that was the only way they could create a pitch for the water to go down the drain. Iffy solution for a regular room, however for a handicapped room this is a nightmare. The desk said they will be renovating soon. I hope so!

I stayed a few weeks ago for a conference. The hotel was great; clean, no issues at all. It's very close to the bus stop and the staff was very nice at helping a southern girl learn the bus route. :). After my experience with the Newark Airport, I hope I never step foot in NJ again, but if I had to, I'd stay here again.

I had a wonderful time at this hotel everyone was very friendly and the staff was very nice. Nice size rooms i had one with a balcony and had a beautiful view of the city Also the hotel was very clean. The only problem i had was the A/C stopped working and i called the front desk and with in about 2 minutes the maintenance man rob can to fix the problem.. They are very fast to respond to guest problems which is a huge plus in my book. I will be back when i visit again!

My husband and I recently visited NY City for four days. Since the hotel rates in the city were so high, we decided to once again stay in NJ and commute. The Renaissance Meadowlands is a 4+ hotel and was at least $100 a night less than a lesser hotel in NY. The bus stop is across the street from the hotel and is the last stop before arriving at the Port Authority Terminal and the first stop on the return. It is very convenient and not costly.
Our room was lovely and very comfortable and quiet. The staff was pleasant and helpful. An additional bonus is free parking.
I am a travel agent and would highly recommend staying at this hotel.
