New York is a city of superlatives: it’s the largest, the fastest-moving, the biggest and the brightest metropolis in the United States. Only in New York can you spend the morning wandering through an Egyptian temple, the afternoon singing along on Broadway, and the evening cheering in Yankee Stadium, maybe with a stop for a stacked corned beef sandwich at Katz’s. The city is a must-do for travelers interested in art, culture, shopping, eating, sports, and plain old people-watching. To see everything you’ll want to see, you need stamina – and a budget.
Enter The Holland Hotel. Located just across the Hudson River in Jersey City, the Holland Hotel offers an affordable, convenient option for any NYC bucket-list trip. Saving on lodging means the ability to splurge on everything else – and New York offers so very much to splurge on.
Close to Newark Liberty International Airport and the Cape Liberty Cruise Port, the Holland Hotel recently renovated every one of its 71 rooms. Each comes with its own mini fridge and microwave, along with the usual amenities you’d find in a larger chain hotel.
Free parking is another of the hotel’s perks, since driving your car into Manhattan can be a major hassle; take public transportation instead. For the most scenic views, opt for the NY Waterway Ferry, which passes the spiky spires of Lower Manhattan on its way through New York Harbor to Wall Street, or follows the city’s green belt on its way to Midtown. Alternatively the PATH metro gets you to Fourteenth Street in just 30 minutes. From there you can tool around the farmers’ market in Union Square or browse 18 miles of books at the Strand; you’re also an easy subway ride away from the Empire State Building, Times Square and Central Park.

The area around the Holland Hotel is worth exploring as well. The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre screens classic movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, sometimes with live musical accompaniment, in a 1929 "movie palace" in the process of being returned to its former glory. Liberty State Park has amazing views of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty; it’s also home to New Jersey’s official monument to September 11th. Kids will go cuckoo for the hands-on exhibitions and live animals at the Liberty Science Center. The hotel is close to Hoboken and East Rutherford too.
Use the Holland Hotel’s free Wi-Fi to plan out your itinerary as you partake of the complimentary breakfast buffet or sip a coffee or hot chocolate (available around the clock). Ask for recommendations from the hotel staff, who do whatever they can to make guests feel relaxed. After all, it’s supposed to be the city that never sleeps, not its visitors.
The most convenient and affordable option for your trip to New York City.
