Family Stay - July 2013

We (daughter, wife and I) stayed at the Candlewood Suites for a week. First impressions were average but the place grew on us over time. It can be best described as a self catering hotel. There is no restaurant on site, but the room has a small kitchen. Ours had a microwave, two hot plates, a big fridge and a dishwasher.Pots, pans and cutlery are also provided. Some basic groceries are available at the hotel, but the great thing about the hotel is what is available within a five minute walk - supermarket (Shoprite), shopping mall (Newport) with a good range of shops and eateries and a choice of PATH stations (Exchange Place or Newport) to get to NY. Getting there from Newark Airport was easy. Also near the hotel were other places to eat - we had a fantastic breakfast at the City Diner which was a short walk away. TIP: Go to the Hudson River Walk nearby after dark - it's quite busy and safe - and take in the Manhattan skyline from the George Washington Bridge down to Staten Island. Its spectacular, and not something you will see staying in Manhattan. CONS: The only problem we had was that the air conditioning struggled to keep the room cool, but it was in the middle of a heatwave. SUMMARY: It may not be Manhattan but it was a very convenient and safe location and a great base from which to explore the Big Apple.

The product would best suit relatively self-sufficient business and independent travelers looking for a well maintained, secure and quiet spot with quick and easy access to Manhattan, Hoboken, public transport links and Newark International. A good selling point is the 'normality' on offer; pleasant staff, no packs of loud guests in the corridors, short wait times for the lifts, and none of the 'tourist trap' nonsense you'll find at the large midtown Manhattan hotels. On the other hand, there is no grandeur, ceremony or sense of luxury - the room was well equipped, the stuff in in could have been quieter and newer, but everything was in order and there was no sense of being chiseled or duped. Comfort level was good. Sleep was easy. Space was sufficient for up to 2 people. Self-catering is very possible using the fully equipped kitchen area. I've stayed in bigger and better but when you open the door you won't think, 'What have I done now?'. So I liked the place and I'd recommend it with the caveats mentioned above (we're talking about a no service hotel otherwise on a par with a UK 3 star). What works best is the location. This part of Jersey City is virtually on the Hudson. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been poured into the redevelopment of that waterside, so your immediate environment is not just secure but actually quite enviable. You cross the road from the hotel to get to the new boardwalk, which gives you a postcard view of Manhattan. It is a whole minute to get to the LRT (tram); do go to Washington Street, Hoboken (it only takes 10 minutes to get to what in tourist terms is an unspoilt historic gem). 5 minutes along the boardwalk gets you to Exchange Place. The PATH train will have you at WTC soon thereafter. Or walk a couple more minutes to Paulus Hook ferry (unmissable) and make the tourist free ride up to 37th Street. You don't get these options if you're stuck in Times Square. I haven't mentioned Newport Mall (large and generic, 4 department stores and a big food court for all you hardened shoppers). That's a quick tram ride or a 10 minute walk. Grove Street is the close-by shopping neighbourhood with a good choice of independent stores and food. And downtown Jersey City is another lo-rise older neighbourhood that balances out time spent on 5th Avenue nicely. Is at all wonderful? No. The waterside scheme includes a mini mall, bars and restaurants, but only opens Monday to Friday. While a train journey from Newark airport is cheap and fairly quick, you have three transfers, and you're on your own pretty much tackling the tickets, route and local geography. It's about $39 for a cab against $15 on the train so 2 people should get the cab and save energy. The hotel is fine. The location is great. There are several new hotels in the area and I'd certainly recommend looking at these as well. Or call the Candlewood direct and haggle!

Sejour en famille a 4.

- Hotel bien situe par rapport au transport a 5 mn a pied du path. Belle suite. - Matelas du canape lit pas tres confortable pour les enfants. - Menage + lit non fait durant la semaine dans suite familiale mais sur demande possible. Pas tres genant pour nous. - Tres bon accueil du personnel. - Supermarche et grande galerie boutiques a 5 mn a pied.

Excellent rapport qualité prix

Personnel attentif lors du séjour, chambre confortable, salle de bains ok, excellente situation au pied du light rail qui permet l'accès en quelques mn à Hoboken, à deux pas du PATH qui permet d'accéder en 15 mn au centre de Manhattan. Le ménage n'est fait qu'une fois par semaine mais aucune difficulté pour changer les serviettes à l'accueil ou obtenir du papier quand on veut. Seule fausse note, nous nous sommes aperçu le lendemain de notre départ de l'oubli d'un paquet dans la chambre. Lorsque nous avons appelé, le paquet n'a pas été retrouvé ... ne rien oublier
