We, 3 adults and three children, decided to head to New York for New Years' eve on a lark. Being last minute and all, and having scoured all web sites for hotel room rates, we decided upon this property simply because we did not fancy spending $700 plus a night on a room. The reviews of the Ridgefield Park HGI were all in all good so we gave it go.
We arrived early about 11ish after a 10 hour drive from Toronto and were very pleasantly surprised to be given our room key. The room, with two queen sized beds, was adequately sized, clean and had all the amenities. The only issue I had was that there was no complimentary water which made it difficult the first night. The bathroom was clean and big and had bath tub; which I found strange. Who has a bath any way these days! Showers are the way to go!
The property is situated near the Interstate so the first couple of hours, I found it a challenge to get used to the noise from the highway so try and keep away from the rooms closer to the interstate. However, once that passed, sleeping was no problem.
Breakfast was abundant and varied. The wait staff very friendly. The children ate for free and gobbled up every thing and then some.
So all in all, it is a great property and very close to Manhattan. About 20 minutes by car on the George Washington and about 2 hours :( via the Lincoln. Do not take the Lincoln into Manhattan. We spent two hours just getting across but I expect it was 5 30pm and the world was heading into town for dinner. So serves us right.
Go and stay at the HGI in Ridgefield Park for your next visit to NYC.
