We are a family of 2 parents and one teenage son. In previous visits to NY we always used hotels in Manhattan . Some were OK, some mediocre, but they were all expensive.
This time we tried to stay in NJ, in order to get a better hotel at a reasonable cost, and we were glad we did that.
We noticed the friendly staff from the moment we checked in, they let us feel like good friends trying to help us make the best out of our trip, giving us directions, timetable of the bus to NY, and guiding us to local shops and restaurants.
Room was large with two queen beds. Bathroom equipped with eveything we needed, from shower gel to mouth wash.
Breakfast was very good with hot items like scrambled eggs, omlets and Wafles. During the breakfast time a whole team was there to help the guests. Even the General Manager was there, greeting people, and personally helping them. While doing so he listened to any guest request. I thought this was a good example for leadership and it shhowed well on the attitude of the entire team.
Our main concern when we booked the hotel was transportation to Manhattan and availability of restaurants near the hotel. We found the transportation very easy with a bus leaving the station across the street every 10-20 minutes and arriving Port Authority bus station in 20 minutes. We also found a selection of more than eight restaurants in the plaza across the street. We tried the Outback steak house, Red Lobster, Houlihan's and Cheeseburger In Paradise and they were all very good. The Walmart which is less than 15 minutes walk from the hotel is open 24 hours.
Overall we had a great experience at this hotel and we recommend it to all our friends.
