“Best place to stay for budget-conscious NYC travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

My wife and I stayed here on a recent trip to New York City. While it is certainly nice to stay in Manhattan, the money we saved staying across the river (less than half the cost) was well worth the subway ride to the city. The hotel is a fine property, with much more spacious accommodations than you could expect in NYC. Plus, the PATH station is literally RIGHT NEXT DOOR. This train can drop you at several Manhattan locations, including very near the WTC site. Also, tickets into Newark frequently seem to be less than flying into La Guardia.

I stayed here recently on a weekend break as it was conveniently located for access to New York City. There's a metro station just next door which makes the ride into town really convenient.

The staff are polite. The rooms are OK. Mine had a funny layout with the vanity area in the main room and a separate bath and toilet room. The rooms are in need of a bit of modernisation. Naturally the extent of the scenic view you get depends on which floor you get to stay on. Mine was a view over the courtyard patio outside!

We did not get breakfast here as there is an array of choices avaiable in NYC or a cafe just across the road which sounded more appealing. The reception area though not ideal for eating breakfast does have an internet, TV and printing area for guests which is good.

The only complaint I would make is that if you want a day out in NYC, baggage storage can be tricky if you want to come back later to pick it up from the hotel. There is a limited storage area. Overall this hotel is a handily located find and reasonably good value considering its proximity to NYC.

Room Tip: Probably a higher floor if you want a bit of a view!

Let me begin with the positives: rather clean, nice exterior next to a little park, some rooms have views, rather quiet and away from NYC hectic, very easy to reach Manhattan by subway just one block away, more reasonably priced than anything comparable on the other side of the Hudson.

But: it could have been a lot nicer if Marriott hadn't recently begun to deliberately downgrade their Courtyard hotels with lobbies that are supposed to be functional, but appear mostly cheap. Instead of a stately check-in counter, they now have small-ish unprofessional looking service desks; not only do they look somewhat improvised, they also have a fake wood paneling that just screams "I am so cheap". Can't we go back to real wood, and/or tile and marble? Then, in various locations they have rather silly-looking artificial grass. It looks even more fake than the wood on the counter - and what's the point of artificial grass? Is this supposed to be attractive to their clientele, based on the idea that they spend all their time indoors and don't know what real glass looks like? And why grass, one of the lowliest and most common plants, instead of their earlier flower bouquets? And what happened to the restaurants they had - now they are replaced by a self-serve, cheap looking counter that is reminiscent of what you would see at a gas station.

In the past I have wholeheartedly enjoyed Marriott hotels for their taste and service. But what they are recently doing with their Courtyard hotels is a bold step in the wrong direction.

Room Tip: High up and facing east; some rooms have a view of the Hudson. Others are blocked by taller building...

This is a good affordable option for staying in NYC. The lobby is very attractive and comfortable - unfortunately the guest rooms don't (yet) live up to that standard, Furniture and fixtures are dated, there are not enough outlets for traveling businesspeople or kids with electronics to charge, our couch was stained, I found beds stiff and uncomfortable, but my family thought they were ok. It is also very difficult to locate when coming in on the Interstate - too bad they don't have better highway access, but not much they can do about that. All that said, the lobby IS very nice, cafe is a nice option (although service is slow and as another reviewer noted, some kind of complimentary breakfast would a real plus), staff were super friendly, and I appreciated the advance notice of the renovations at the hotel - both on their site when you book, and I received a follow up email from the manager to describe the location and hours of the reno - a nice extra step. There is a small indoor pool which is good for families too. Nice walk along the riverfront nearby, but the immediate neighbourhood is a strip of hotels and office towers. Cosi is a good food option across the street - bagels, eggs, yogurt and coffee. There's also a big mall and Target across the street - so some decent local shopping, if not high end. Once you get there, traveling into Manhattan couldn't be easier - the PATH is literally next door - takes 15 min to Penn Stn. That was a huge plus. All in all, a good affordable option, and post-reno (if they don't raise the room rates to compensate) I'm sure it will be a great place to stay. PS - another plus for Cake Boss fans - it's 5 min from Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 9th or 10th floor (post reno) on the river side - they would have the best view, a...

I really love this hotel -- it's expensive but well worth it. The whole hotel really has a fantastic elegance about it but at the same time it's not stuffy. Very comfortable, great accommodations, fantastic staff, and a very convenient location. Highly recommended.
