Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2014

I researched a lot to book hotels in NYC and surrounding areas and this hotel stood out the best in terms of pricing and proximity to NYC. I immediately reserved this hotel and I was not disappointed with the hotel when I reached there. Check in was a breeze. Room & lobby were maintained well. Breakfast was excellent and maintained well.
Two things stand out for this hotel. The first is the staff. They are cheerful and friendly and most importantly they act as your travel agents. They provide maps, take time to explain how to get in and out and patiently answer all your questions. For a newbie to the NY area this is a blessing. Secondly the proximity to the NJ transit bus station. Just few feet away from hotel. You can park your car in hotel and just use the NJ transit and MTA in NYC and not worry about parking and driving in NY city.

They even allow to park your car for few extra hours and secure your luggage, in case you need to make another trip to NY after check out.

We stayed here for one night while traveling down the east coast to see the sights. It was perfect. The 163/164 bus line comes every 5 min to the city for $8.50 round trip RIGHT in front of the hotel. It takes 20-30 min to get to the Port Authority bus station, which is a stones throw away from Times Square and also the grey line bus tours (which is where we went for a tour). johns pizza is amazing and is walking distance from the Port Authority Station. It's the perfect location for a bus stop. Broadway, etc. avoided NYC traffic and chaos and was a super smooth day. Also, Fairfield let is leave our car there all day for free (parking is free!) great day! The front desk attendant at night was not particularly helpful ( it was midnight, maybe he was tired?), but the am lady have us everything we needed to know about getting to NYC and was happy to help. As far as the room goes, I've stayed in nicer fairfields, but overall the location and cleanliness trumps the smaller-than-normal room and no-closet features by far. Would stay again and would recommend to friends.

We travel to NYC at least twice a year and have stayed at both the Hampton Inn & Holiday Inn Express on Patterson Plank Road, so we decided to try the Fairfield Inn this time & we were pleasantly surprised. First the location is perfect, with the bus stop literally steps from the hotel. There is ample parking & the lobby/eating area is much larger than the other 2 hotels. The rooms have all been refurbished in beautiful colors. One thing I really loved was a "continuous" run button on the air conditioner. Being a light sleeper, nothing bothers me more than hearing the a/c start & stop numerous times during the night, so this feature alone renders me a repeat customer. The beds were beyond comfortable (LOVE the white duvet, please tell me where you got them!!!), the pillows are large (not the size of marshmallows like at some hotels). The staff were all extremely pleasant. Also fresh coffee, hot water & cookies available in the evenings....again Fairfield takes that extra step by packaging the cookies in individual packets! Overall the Fairfields extra touches are what makes it my #1 hotel to stay at for future NY trips!

Room Tip: Rooms facing Patterson Plank tend to be noisier so if you tend to sleep with the window open then ch...

We stayed here one night (3 rooms) & couldn't be happier with the results. We arrived to a fully booked hotel & was greeted warmly by the front desk & acknowledged as a Marriott Reward silver member. The rooms were top quality - clean, comfortable & spacious. The television was good size & clear picture, the beds were extremely comfortable & clean, the room had everything we needed. The bathroom was large, clean & stocked with good water pressure. The breakfast area is small when the hotel is full & when people just sit there nursing a coffee when people are trying to find a place to sit and eat can be frustrating, but we found a place to sit & was very happy with the selection of options. It area is small & can get congested around the waffle maker & toaster & coffee area at times, so patience is required. NJ Transit has a bus that runs about every 20 minutes from infront of the hotel into the Port Authority \Bus Terminal near Times Square. At $4.25 each way (but a return ticket from the operator going into town) its a great deal. It takes about 15 minutes to get into Manhattan & the buses run 24 hours a day each way. It was a very easy & cheap way to get into the city. The gas station down the street offers cheap fuel & there are plenty of chain restaurants nearby, but you need a car to get to them. A good hotel for someone looking to spend some time in NYC without paying the price - cheap transit into the city makes it perfect. You won't be disappointed if you make this your NYC base.

This hotel is very nice. The outside is a bit deceiving. Its worn down outside but inside is quite nice. The overnight staff is nice but a little slow.
The rooms are very nice and clean. We had a good nights rest and enjoy our stay.

The Fairfield Inn at East Rutherford Meadowlands has recently been renovated. It is conveniently located off Route 17 on Paterson Plank Road. We have stayed there before and it was pleasant. Now the place is more beautifully decorated in warm and some vibrant colors.

The landscaping is breathing right now with so many tulips. The colors are so spectacular and the blooms are at their peak. As you walk into the main lobby, the open area has a colorful couch and it draws you into the cheerful, naturally lighted breakfast area that has lots of warm colors and plenty of room for folks to comfortably enjoy breakfast. Breakfast food chooses were excellent. The staff kept the areas clean and made sure nothing ran out.

Our room was so lovely and spotless. Everything was new. The carpet was a beautiful blue design, the walls were covered with warm fabric wall paper with browns and tans with white floral designs. The orange accent chair and ottoman enhanced the warm charm. The hallway carpet was also new and filled wonderful colors and designs.

The bathroom was spotless. The floor tile was exceptionally designed and the bathtub walls had a wonderful, simple, yet classy design.

Overall, it was really nice treat and it really had a comfortable, elegant feel to the place. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and cheerful. Since we return to this area throughout the year, this is definitely a place we will stay at again and again.

We had traveled from Virginia with two children to New Jersey for an event just up the street at the MetLife Stadium. Once we arrived we were greeted by a friendly staff. I was aware we were several hours early before check in, but as I wasn't feeling too well once we arrived I asked if any way we could check in early. Since all rooms were sold out the night before they were slammed. Geovany the housekeeping manager on duty came and spoke to us and was going to try to get us in a room ASAP. It worked, within 20 mins we were all checked in. Above and beyond in customer service. Carmen at the front desk was super welcoming as we were sitting on the couch waiting on a room we were offered juice, cookies or whatever else we needed. What a great hotel. Rooms were spotless and just newly remodeled, hospitality was great and Geovany took care of us! We will definitely stay again at this Fairfield Inn.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double bed room which was newly remodeled, and very clean.
