Let me start by saying that I'm a Hilton Honors member and used points for this two-day visit. We were planning to drive from Ohio and knew we didn't want to actually drive into NYC so we were looking for something outside the city w/ easy access into NYC. (And anyone coming from Ohio- or other MidWest state, the drive in could not be easier. We took I-80 to NJ 3 and on to the hotel. I think we were on a total of 4 roads/streets once we left Ohio. EASY!)
When browsing the list of Hilton hotels in the NYC vacinity, the Embassy Suites Hotel in Secaucus claimed to have a bus stop right accross the street with easy transport into NYC. I was skeptical as to what they considered was "right accross the street" but we decided to take the chance. We were NOT disappointed! The bus stop was right where they said it was and the route into the city costs $7.90 round trip (with a ticket kiosk right at the stop), takes about 15 minutes, takes you through the Lincoln tunnel and drops you off at the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 42nd Street, steps from Times Square! It really could not be more simple to get into the city!
The hotel staff was friendly, the hotel was clean, and the beds were comfortable, but the rooms could use some updating (worn furniture/ carpet). The free breakfast was very good. We did not use any of the other amenities so I can't comment on them, but we would definitely stay here again. And I do need to mention this: we arrived at 12:15pm and literally waited as other customers checked OUT and were allowed to check IN (3 hrs early) since they had a room available. Great customer service!
