This was my second stay in this hotel and I was not disappointed at all. My family of five were on vacation from Nigeria/UK. The manager at the front desk gave us a warm welcome and check-in was quick.
We occupied 2 suites with city view on the 9th floor (HHonours guests) and the friendly manager gave us complimentary internet access because we were spending 14 nights.
The rooms were large and clean, beds very comfortable but the sofa mattress was not comfortable, you could feel the springs when you lay in it.
Throughout our stay there were different families gathered for reunion and I just loved seeing the excited family members of different ages at breakfast. Great atmosphere! The free breakfast was good and my husband and sons loved the made-to-order omelettes. We checked in on a Saurday and went late for breakfast on Monday as we didn't realise breakfast ended at 9am on Monday (weekday) as against 10:30am on Sunday (weekend). One of the kitchen staff was kind enough to get us all we needed which we really appreciated. There were computers at the reception area with free internet access for guests use as well as free printing.
The location of the hotel is fantastic. We went to NYC almost daily as it was a quick bus ride to Ports Authority ($7.90 return) but nobody told us about the traffic at peak period and we missed 30minutes of a Broadway show. I advise anyone going to NYC for evening event to take taxi to Sacaucus Junction station (about $7) and take a train to Penn Station ($4) which is less than 10 minutes journey.
I loved the Dresigner Outlets in Secaucus, great bargains at Gucci, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hillfinger, Jones New York, Burlington Coat etc. Most are located along Enterprise Ave, and Hartz st. and taxi fare is less than $10 from hotel. If well timed, the hotel shuttle can take you there.
We felt safe walking at any time to the fine restaurants close to the hotel, our favourites were Red Lobster and Chillis. Walt Mart is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. There is also a movie theatre close to the hotel.
We had a memorable family holiday and will definitely stay in thie hotel again. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to NYC.
