Near to New York City, staff could smile more!!

Posted 08-Dec-2014
Pros: room size, shuttle bus to mall/supermarket, cleanliness and amenities in room (got my own kitchen which saved money)
Cons: staff could be more greeting/interactive with my trip to new york. asking how my day was etc....
Location: great location, 15min train journey to central new york city, a mall not too far away. 45mins train to airport, 20min cab to airport.
This hotel is a great location, along the seafront so a short walk and you can see the manhattan skyline and a 10minute walk to subway stations connecting you to World Trade centre and time square. They run a shuttle bus service that will take you to the nearest mall/supermarket to get some shopping in, but no transfer option between airport and hotel which is a shame. A cab will set you back $50+ or if you research it beforehand, a relatively short train ride of about 45mins will get you between the hotel and airport for about $12. I would definitely do this next time. The staff were helpful when needed, but if they had helped with a smile on their face then this would have been a perfect hotel, the gesture of a smile goes a loooooong way, for instance when walking into a hotel reception, you expect the staff there to greet you back, but not there. Regularly walking by without acknowledgment from the staff. Bit disappointing but not the end of the world. Overall, very good hotel and would recommend to anyone wanting to visit new york but not wanting to pay ridiculously expensive time square prices.

Great hotel, easy to get to the city

Posted 24-Nov-2014
Pros: Location, proximity to the city Spacious room Affordable
Cons: Add a pool!
Location: 5mins to the Newport Mall 8mins to Hoboken Close to "PATH" trains to NYC
We had a wonderful stay at Candlewood. Our room overlooked the NYC skyline and the Harbor. It felt like we were staying at a home away from home. We had a full kitchen, which was helpful for a quick breakfast before we headed to the city or to heat up a late night snack upon returning. The hotel offers a courtesy shuttle to the 'path' train, however it is no more then a ten minute walk and then appox 10-15 mins on the path to the city. The staff were friendly, polite, and helpful with any questions we had. We would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to save some money and enjoy some quiet while still being quite close to the hustle and bustle of the city.

Great place to stay visiting NYC!

Posted 18-Nov-2014
Pros: Great location, quiet area, parking
Location: Its about a block away from the river, so you'll get a great view of the city at all times of the day or night.
This is my second stay at Candlewood and Jersey City and I am quite pleased with my experience. The hotel is a quick 8-10 minute walk to the PATH station and ferry to get to NYC (5 dollars round trip on the ferry) and the restaurants in the vicinity are all great places to stop and have a bite. The area is nice, the staff is friendly and very helpful if you have questions, and the option for parking is excellent if you're driving in from out of town. Didn't have enough time to utilize the kitchenette, but definitely will the next trip! If you're a student or traveling on business and you'd like a quiet place to unwind, I would definitely recommend!

"It does what it says on the tin"

Posted 31-Oct-2014
Pros: Kitchen facillities good for snacks rather than main meal. Small shop by reception stocked bagels, milk etc.
Cons: Missed not having a bar but it is not meant to be a hotel
Location: Great location for the PATH train into Manhatten. Better facilities at Newport (Mall & Cinema) about 5 mins walk rather than stay in Exchange Place. T
Great location for exploring NY & Manhatton being only a short walk to both Newport or Exchange Place PATH stations.Not luxury but clean & comfortable but ideal as a base with the kitchen/cooking facilities a real bonus.

Tranquillo, posizione invidiabile

Posted 29-Oct-2014
Pros: La posizione tranquilla in zona residenziale. e la vicinanza con Manhattan: 5' di subway per il WTC circa 20' per la 33St. Panorama invidiabile.
Cons: Un pò + di pulizia ......
Location: Zona residenziale tranquilla e sicura con market, ristoranti/bar e centro commerciale nel raggio di 1 Km serviti con LightTrain, PATH, navetta Hotel
L'hotel ha ampie camere dotate di cucina attrezzata. La posizione è tranquilla come l'hotel. Staff gentile e disponibile a tutte le ore. Lo skyline di NYC che si può vedere dalle camere e dalla passeggiata lungo l'Hudson è impagabile. Due fermate della PATH (metropolitana del New Jersey) per Manhattan si trovano a max 500 metri dall'hotel ( e c'è pure un bus navetta gratuito per le fermate della PATH) e sempre raggiungibile a piedi market e un grosso centro commerciale per acquisti (p.es. Macy's) e mangiare. Comodamente e con meno code si può raggiungere da qui la Statua della Libertà e Ellis Island. Per chi ama passeggiare/correre favoloso lungo Hudson sia a nord che a sud per molti km.

Schöne Lage, tolles Zimmer zum fairen Preis.

Posted 19-Oct-2014 on Hotels.com
Insgesammt ein toller Aufenthalt. Die Sicht auf die Skyline ist toll. Die Gegend ist sehr ruhig und sauber. Es scheint eine Geschäfts/Hotelgegend zu sein. Man kann auch relativ schnell zur NYC Seite kommen über das Schiff Shuttle (Zeiten beachten) oder Wochentags mit dem Path (Zug zum WTC). Die Path Newport Haltestelle ist auch nah und so ist man Recht zügig auch beim Flatiron District ( und Penn Station wenn man weiter will ). Dieser Zug ist leider scheinbar immer sehr voll und stickig ( was sich natürlich nicht schlecht aufs Hotel auswirkt). Am Hotel stört nur die Klimaanlage. Diese hat ungefährt Staubsaugerlautstärke und man kann sie nicht sofort ausschalten. Zudem hielt der Stöpsel im Bad das Wasser nicht. Das sind aber nur Kleinigkeiten. Der Rest war wunderbar. Zu beachten ist noch, dass der Reinigungsservice nur einmal wöchentlich kommt und nicht täglich wie in anderen Hotels üblich. Uns hat das nicht gestört.
