Historical Traveler Reviews Candlewood Suites Jersey City
Wonderful Place to Stay
I visited New York City for a dance workshop but arranged to stay here because of good reviews and the reasonable price. The place is very convenient from the Pavonia PATH station. The city itself looks so clean compared to New York City. It reminded me more of Century City in CA or Crystal City in VA. Check-in was very easy. I presented my Priority Club card and they oriented me with the facilities, amenities, etc.
When I went inside the suite...wow! It was spacious, it had a nice long table in the middle, like in a conference room. The kitchenette was complete with stovetop, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, fridge. The TV had a VCR, and since I bought some choreography tapes, I was able to view them immediately. The clock in the living room had a CD player, so it also helped me to practice the choreography that I was learning in the workshop. Bathroom is also nice and spacious, and the room had a great view of the harbor.
The Candlewood Cupboard is also a valuable part of this place. I was able to save a lot on food just by accessing this feature. It is done on an honor system. If you don't have the exact change, just go over to the front desk and they will help you; otherwise, charge it to your room.
For anyone going to New York City, stay at this hotel. It's nice and quiet, has a nice view, is convenient to the Pavonia PATH Station, and it costs less than the expensive New York hotels, but is more spacious and clean.
If you're driving to NYC, this is the place to stay!
Only able to stay 2 days and 1 night but wished we could have stayed longer! Very easy to get to NYC. The ferry is one block in front of the hotel. The PATH trains are about 2 or 3 blocks away - a pleasant walk along the river. The PATH train to World Financial Center arrives through the bottom of the WTC site. It provided an unique prospective. At night, we felt completely safe walking from the PATH station back to the hotel. Even though we checked out the next morning, we were permitted to leave our car in the hotel's secure lot for the entire day without any additional charges while we explored the Big Apple. Would definitely stay here again (and hopefully longer)!
During a visit to Jersey City to see my relatives I chose to stay at Candlewood Suites. It was by far the best away from home stay ever!! The staff was professional and knowledgable, FREE SECURED PARKING, complimentary movies, popcorn and cd's to play in your VCR or CD player. They offer a huge clean, modern, cozy and comfy suite. HIghly recommend!!!
Home base for a great NYC trip
New hotel, great location, free parking, close to the water taxi's that go into Manhattan and close to the Path train station that can take you as far as 38th and 6th (Macys) for $1.50. You can even cook your meals and save even more $$. Shuttle can take you to the Path station if you don't feel like walking a few blocks!!
What a deal!
Great stay.The staff is friendly, the rooms are big, the kitchennetes are stocked with everything you will need to make dinner or lunch. They even have free videos and a little grocery on the honor system. Perfect alternative to staying in an expensive, tiny manhattan hotel
have stayed at candlewood suites 3x. Very easy to get to manhatten via path train or water ferry. also light rail that runs to hoboken is just outside the door. Rooms nice, hotel is very close to hudson river. walking path along the river is very close. Am going to stay there again. candlewood suite people know many of their customers names, because some people stay there long term.. close to grocery store a&p and major shopping center has food court within walking distance or short ride on light rail. CLEAN, QUIET AND COMFORTABLE. rj
Great fitness center
I stayed at Candlewood during a plumbing disaster at my nearby apartment, and I felt more at home in my temporary suite than I do in my apartment. The fitness center on the first floor is the best I've seen in a hotel: the cardiovascular equipment was well-maintained and the space was ample.
THE Place to Stay!
Spent the wkend (2 nights) at the Candlewood Suites Jersey City Nov.
2003 and were extremely pleased! Check out the wkend 2 nites for 1 offer using Visa to reserve - can't be beat! 1bdrm suite is very large - beds comfortable - and the entire place is very nice and appears to be new. If you stay there, eat at Darrian's Pub & Restaurant on Washington Blvd!
Great Place to Stay near Manhattan!
Great service, excellent room w/full size kitchen for long-term stays.
Take path train to Manhattan - grat alternative to pricey NYC hotels.
Found it on expedia.
Wonderful Place to Stay
I have no complaints about this hotel. The customer service was flawless, the room was in excellent shape, it was convenient to public transportation, and the price was even pretty reasonable (for the NYC area). I highly recommend it.

We left at 10:00AM to Mana Art Studios in Jersey City. Those studios are situated in an old factory (brick walls, water tower, and iron structure). There are almost one hundred artists in this place; however, only a few of them opened their studio for a visit. This was very interesting, one painter was married to a friend furniture maker (Jennifer Chapeau), another one ...
New york is pretty fast paced. We aren't anymore. We slept in and lazed around before heading up to the natural history museum.
The museum was cool, lots of dinosaur bones, fossils, rocks (for Jen), animals, and lots of cool other stuff. The highlight for me was actually something everyone kept walking past.

... names we both expected a male, buy she turned out to be a pretty and personable young woman. The Curtis School and recital hall are historic in their own right.. probably a couple of hundred years old, and quite beautiful with full wood panelling in the foyer and the hall. The School is free tuition, and appears to be well supported by private bucks. Jiyeon was careful to thank her “sponsors” who were present, as well as her “host ...
... and what do I find hidden amongst them.. NHL logo hoodies. Tool. Alas though, no luck on the sizes. Booooo. Even after I had the guy checking the store room for a couple of them.
I’ve got another three days in the city, and I can’t guarantee there won’t be a return visit to the store before I head home. There were one or two things that caught my eye but I managed to resist…
... animals and looking back through my photos of DC, I have a lot of squirrel photos. Not that I should be surprised really. We seem to have bonded. There was one day I was walking through the National Mall (big grassy area near all the monuments not a shopping centre) where I discovered I could now speak the language of the squirrels. I don't care if you think I'm a weirdo, it was hilarious. There was one point where I was being circled by at least 4 of them and they would take it ...
