  1. Hey NJ Friends, I erroneously posted this in another thread. Need to ask it here. I just came across a 2.5* in Secaucus-Meadowlands for $69 per night for the time I'm looking for (July 29 -August 1). It sounds as though this would be the La Quinta Clifton - breakfast, pool, laundry, and hi-speed internet are the icons showing. Is this a safe place for a family to get two rooms? Thereuare, you said there's a good NJ Transit bus into Manhattan. Do you know how long it normally takes to get there? And if it's $69 on Hotwire, could I possibly bid less on Priceline? Thanks as always. If any of you ever need advice for Atlanta, let me know!
  2. Sorry, I thought it was more appropriate to continue talking about LaQuinta in an existing thread. My bad! Still learning the nuances of this particular forum. :)

  4. May I ask you guys in the know what the Elizabeth area is like? Does it have good rail or bus service into Manhattan from this Marriott? Thanks.
  5. May I ask why you didn't want La Quinta in Secaucus or Clifton? I am trying to bid 2.5/3* in the same area for the following week.
  6. Interesting...is that through Hotwire, Priceline, or some other source? I'm thinking I would HAVE to buy two rooms though, wherever I go. I really don't want to risk it, unless of course we could just send the kids over to your place!! :) Thanks again for all the help. Incredible.
  7. I know I can get a room at the Secaucus-Hyatt Place for $199. The way their suites are set up, I can sleep my whole family very comfortably with the two doubles and sleeper sofa. My thought was if I can get two rooms for less than $199, I win. I've seen wins here and on other "less than helpful" boards in that area for around $70 - 75. I even saw where one guy got two rooms at Hyatta Place for $56 each, but that was a date in May. If I can get two rooms in 2.5 star Secaucus hotel for less than $175 total, I think I should smile. What do you think? Are there other family friendly zones in NJ that have quick bus/rail access to Manhattan?
  8. The Boss will be at Giants Stadium July 27, 28, and 31. I know it sounds sacrilegious but I have never "gotten" Bruce Springsteen. And he will sell out Giants Stadium three times in one week??? :) What are your thoughts on Jersey City as an alternate to Secaucus? Thanks again for all the input. You are so there!
  9. Yeah, that was my plan to bid on two rooms but I was wondering if there are alternative "family-safe" bidding zones with quick access by rail or bus to NYC. I've heard from a friend to stay away from Newark and the airport areas but I haven't been to NY/NJ in years and never with the kids. And is it safe to assume that I could get 1 adult and 2 kids in one room? One last thing - I found out that Bruce Springsteen is doing a few concerts that week at the Meadowlands. Will that greatly affect room supply? Again, I TRULY appreciate any help! This board is awesome. Depending on where I make my bid (HOTWIRE or PRICELINE), I will be sure to use the links found herein.
  10. I am traveling with my wife and 4 children (ages 6-13) from Atlanta, GA to visit NYC from July 29 to August 1. I have zeroed in on Secaucus as an area of interest because it seems as though there are a lot of hotels, pretty good bus routes to NYC, and possibly pretty safe. I was very intrigued to find a Hyatt Place there because I know all 6 of us have fit very comfortably in Hyatt Place hotels before. From what I am reading, it seems as though I should probably bid on 2 rooms to be safe but I'm not a little confused as to why I should use Hotwire with multiple children as opposed to Priceline. I have always had great success traveling with my family and using Priceline to get just one room. (Two youngest don't mind sleeping on the floor!) Can any of you please offer any advice on the area, bidding on 2 rooms vs. 1, bidding on Priceline vs. Hotwire, etc? Any info you can provide will be helpful. I will continue to investigate on this wonderful site. Thereuare, I know you live in the area so I'm hoping you can give some insight, as well as anyone else. I guess you could say "we are here" in Atlanta but I want to be where "thereuare" is so I can say "we are there" also. Or something like that....
