Did you know that if you stay at the Howard Johnson North Bergen NJ, you’ll actually be closer to Times Square than if you stayed in the southern tip of Manhattan? If you take the Lincoln Tunnel, Manhattan’s neon-lit center is just 5.5 miles away. And with free parking, you can take advantage of the shuttle service (surcharge) into Midtown. Public transportation is nearby, too–just walk 15 minutes to the local bus stop, and the bus will have you downtown in about 25 minutes. For a completely different experience, take time to visit downtown Hoboken, birthplace of Frank Sinatra and less than 3 miles from the hotel. Pick up a sweet treat at Carlo’s Bake Shop of TV’s Cake Boss fame. Then stroll Hoboken’s waterfront park, with its panoramic views of the New York skyline. Wherever you’re heading, you can start your day with Howard Johnson’s complimentary continental breakfast. Check email or research New York attractions via complimentary wireless Internet access. Another convenience: coin-operated laundry facilities right on site. The hotel offers a shuttle service to New York City with an additional surcharge. At the end of a busy day, return to your room and relax in front of the 27-inch TV–it comes with cable channels. Accommodations also include a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee/tea maker, so making a quick snack or drink is a breeze.
