This past week we traveled north from Florida to see a Broadway show and take in the sights of New York City. After driving for about 16 hours, we were pleased with the convenience and location of the RED ROOF PLUS+ SECAUCUS-MEADOWLANDS hotel. Located on the Hackensack River and within minutes of the bright lights and excitement of Times Square, Broadway, and all of New York City’s finest attractions, this hotel was just what we needed. It was easy to find, even at night, and had plenty of free parking. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful when we checked in. The process was quick, and we were on our way to the room in no time. The room had clean, modern decor and was quite spacious. I will say it was literally freezing outside (windchills were in the single digits) so were disappointed to walk into a cold room. It took a while for the heat to really make a difference so we stayed bundled up for the night. The front desk, however, was very accommodating and offered us some extra blankets. The beds and pillows were comfortable, and we all slept well. There were plenty of convenient outlets for all of our chargers and technology. I hate when hotels have outlets behind the bed. Not the case at RED ROOF PLUS+ SECAUCUS-MEADOWLANDS. The microwave even had outlets on the front. That is a major positive in my opinion. In the morning we got a cup of free coffee in the lobby (there is a Dunkin directly across the street if you desire a “fancier” coffee drink) and were on our way into New York City. RED ROOF PLUS+ SECAUCUS-MEADOWLANDS is only 1 mile from the Meadowlands Sports Complex: MetLife Stadium, which is home to the New York Giants and New York Jets, and the Meadowlands Racetrack. Other nearby attractions include New York Red Bulls soccer, Meadowlands Exposition Center, Medieval Times, Great Falls of Paterson, and Liberty State Park. It was a quick drive into the Times Square area from this location as well. This hotel is just right if you are looking for economical accommodations but still want a big city experience without the prices of New York City. RED ROOF PLUS+ SECAUCUS-MEADOWLANDS will be on our recommendation list for anyone going to the Big Apple.
