My wife and family stayed here for one night pre-cruise prior to our departure from New York City to Bermuda. We were disappointed in the overall quality of the Crowne Plaza and would not recommend the hotel to anyone venturing to pay rack rate.
We were assigned to the property after securing a $49 (62 w/tax) dollar bid on Hotwire for the New Brunswick area. Patrons of that site should use caution as this is hotel is somewhat isolated from anything except the highway and not that close (about 15 min.) to downtown New Brunswick.
Our first room we were assigned to was filthy as a bucket directly outside our room door was collecting water from a leaky ceiling tile. The cabinet to the "entertainment center" was off the hinges and posed a tripping hazard for our young son. The bathroom was dirty and the second room we were assigned to didn't offer much of an improvement. The staffers seemed indifferent and slightly annoyed as we brought this to their attention.
Service at the hotel was slow and overrun with teenagers attending a local event of some sort. The food at the restaurant was decent but the servers appeared tired and disheveled. It did the trick for a one nighter but there are some better chains in the region. We had a very nice stay at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick and will opt for that in the future.
