... managed to get an ok seat in the grass right in the middle of the crowd. I got there just in time, too! They played Don Juan and Til Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks by Strauss, Vysehrad from Ma vlast by Smetana, and Romeo and Juliet, Overture-Fantasy by Tchaikovsky. It was fabulous! What a great opportunity to see a world class orchestra for free! After the concert there was a short fireworks display. It ended up being a great evening.....even with the two mile walk back to my ...

... on top of that? We decided to take Claire Howlett's advice which was "When in doubt, tell people you are from New Zealand." We didn't realise at the time how often we would rely on this advice. Next stop was the paved playground which had little people equipment for Adalia and big kid stuff for Sammy. Then back to our room to decide what to do for the rest of the day. After a little rest - where we had to wake both children after an hour and a ...
... The froth was actually froth, instead of bubbles, and the espresso shot was strong and tasty. I think baristas here don't know the true art to making a frothy, presentable cappuccino though. It's pretty much just the shot and the milk slapped on top. Whereas a proper made one would either have a pattern on it or have chocolate sprinkled on the top. Oh well, at least it was tasty and just over the road!! We walked up a couple of blocks and bought our Metrocards for the ...
... and didn’t have lots of money. Impressive range of produce but we thought the guy making the ravioli should have found a use for the leftover pasta. We said goodbye to J outside Eataly and thanked her for a wonderful tour. I commented that we had covered so much ground which I thought would have taken longer.
We were still looking for jeans and headed over to Dave’s Army Navy on 6th Ave. I had no intention of buying a pair ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Short Hills
Time for a renovation
Not a bad place by any stretch of the imagination. The service comes across as very unpolished, yet professional. It isnt NYC after all. The public areas are very nice-- something just below an older Ritz Carlton. You can see that the hotel is showing its age though. The room that we had was in major need of a renovation--carpeting was stained and wallpaper was starting to peel. Not at all what a supposed 5 star hotel should have going on. Also, the spa area is very weird...you have to take an elevator upstairs in your robe to get a massage. Clearly a major design flaw that makes it a very negative experience. Would I stay here again? For the right price. I dont think Ill be running back any time soon though. Too many better places not all that far away.
We stayed at the Short Hills Hilton because our newphew was being Bar Mitzvah near by.
We loved our stay at the Hilton. The staff, from the doormen to the lifeguards were all amazing and catered to all our needs.The indoor and outdoor pools are relaxing and beautiful. The room was large, the bathroom impressive, the furniture elegant, and the beds comfortable. The lobby was gorgeous, from the dark wood paneling to the marble floors. If it hadn't said Hilton on the building, I would have thought it was a Ritz-Carlton!
Excellent hotel, highly recommended
My girlfriend and I just stayed here for a weekend and it was all I hoped for after reading most of the reviews on here. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. We ordered room service and they were polite and prompt. It is definitely not for the budget-minded traveler, but its also not going to completely break the bank. The gift shop was very expensive, but thats to be expected at any hotel. Anyway, I highly recommend it to anyone traveling in The "Garden" State.
I had heard so many great things about it so I decided to take my girlfriend for a weekend there (we live in New York City). I had high, yet restrained hopes that this place would be what they advertise: a AAA Five Diamond hotel.
My wife and I spent our wedding night at the Hilton Short Hills. We were both impressed by the hotel's public areas. Beautiful dark woods and understated elegance abounded. The clerk at the front desk was among the friendliest we've met. Upon arrival at our room, we were both impressed by the marble bathroom and nice-sized bedroom. All areas of the room were spotless. The shower was excellent, with plenty of space and strong water pressure. The bed was comfortable. We ordered room service the night of arrival and again for breakfast the next morning. The food was delicious and the room service employees were friendly and helpful. They accidentally brought us an extra order and quickly corrected the bill with no problem. Like most hotels, room service was expensive, but was a nice luxury we were happy to splurge on for a special occasion. Check-out was a breeze, and again we were helped by a friendly desk clerk. We did not use the pool, spa, or any restaurant (although judging by the excellent food we ordered to our rooms, this would have been well-worth trying). Altogether, an excellent hotel with amazingly attentive and friendly service.
I was impressed the moment my taxi arrived, as I recieved gracious smiles from the bellhop, the doorman, and then the front desk. Overall the staff was great. I travel at least two nights a week and I cannot recall friendlier staff anywhere. They do make you feel like a VIP.
Physicaly, this is a lovely hotel...nearly as nice as, and in the same style as, a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton. Almost as nice, that is. The lobby, lounge, restaurants and the guest rooms are all done extremely well in that gracious, marble and mahogony style.
the spa is great great food best hotel in new jersey
This really is the most wonderful hotel! I've been lucky enough to stay here a few times now when my Dad has been on business, most recently from 15th-18th of December. The staff are all impeccable, the rooms and bathrooms are wonderful, and the food is lovely. The spa facilities and outdoor pool area is also lovely, and well worth a visit. The mall over the road is a handy thing also, especially for the ladies!! This hotel is mainly business trip orientated, but should you be lucky enough to be invited along, i'd take the invitation- this hotel is one of the best I've stayed in, and in my opinion, well worthy of all it's awards.
