This hotel FAR exceeded my expectation for the cost. You're greeted with beautiful landscaping and a airy, spacious lobby that serves as the breakfast area. You're next greeted with 24/7 hot coffee that's just superb -- very, very good. The staff is super-friendly. The rooms were recently renovated and are modern and tasteful, including the bathroom. Water pressure out of the shower is so intense it's like a water massage (which is to say, great.) The free breakfast is high quality with a nice variety of selection including croissants, waffles you make, oat meal, fruits, etc. Juices taste like juices and not colored/sugured water.
If you are not driving and will be depending on public transportation, this is the place to stay. The hotel has free shuttle that runs to 10PM and will take you to Secaucus train station, where it's a 15min train ride into NYC Penn Station (basically Time Square.) Right across the street from hotel is the bus stop for NJ Transit bus 163, which takes you to Port Authority Bus station in Manhattan in about 20 min (very near World Trade Center.) If you're on leisure visit, you can take a short train ride to Hoboken and transfer to the Bergen Light Rail, which takes you to Liberty State Park where you can walk (about a mile) to the ferry that takes you to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Finally American Dream mall and its amazing indoor water park is 5min by hotel shuttle.
