Best NJ Hotel w/ Shuttle Service to NYC
There are five NJ hotels that advertise a shuttle service in and out of Manhattan. There is a group of hotels that do this located in an area called North Bergen, but the best hotel in terms of shuttle reliability and overall amenities is the Doubletree. Located just off the George Washington Bridge. The Doubletree has an average rate of $150 for a standard room. Wireless and parking are free, the shuttle to and from Manhattan costs $20 round trip and is run by the hotel. It will take about 20 minutes to get into Manhattan depending on traffic. The shuttle drops guests off at a sister Hilton on 54th street about 10 blocks shy of Times Square. This pickup and drop off location provides a safe, warm and dry place to wait for your return shuttle. The other four hotels in New Jersey that advertise a shuttle service into NYC are located closer to the Lincoln Tunnel. These hotels source the shuttle to a 3rd party company, meaning the hotel itself doesn’t run the shuttle service. Of the four choices the Meadowlands Inn (former Days Inn) seemed most confident in the shuttle service and reliability. Tickets are sold in the hotel lobby. The next best hotel in terms of amenities is the Holiday Inn Express. Here guests will also get a free hot and cold item breakfast, something not offered at the nearby Meadowlands. Rates at either hotel hover between $120 and $140 for standard rooms. The shuttle cost is $12 round trip and drops guests off at 41st and Broadway, just a short walk from Times Square. For economy minded travelers the Super 8 Motel is the best alternative. This is possibly the cheapest method to stay at a hotel near NYC and save. The vast majority of online reviews for the Super 8 are above average. However, shuttle service seems less reliable than the other hotels. It’s advised to double check with the front desk about the shuttle frequency. The cost for the shuttle here is also lower, under $5 round trip. We also found that some guests complained the shuttle drop off for Super 8. Sometimes the shuttle drops guests off 2 blocks away from the motel, this caused concern for some guests walking to the hotel late at night alone. Generally speaking all the hotels in New Jersey with shuttle service to Manhattan have shuttle times between 7AM and 10PM. But, it’s important to double check this. For guests who want the most reliable shuttle service and hotel amenities like a gym, pool, free wifi, free parking and free breakfast the Doubletree is worth investigating first.
