Terrific location. Ferry arrangement makes it. Room was quite adequate and also convenience of parking on site. Service is competitive and room amenities as well. Will be back again. Nearby shops and restaurants are ideal. Great for extended Javitts Centre show visitors.

Our room had a nice view of New York City. The room was quiet, comfortable & clean. Breakfast was good & all a person needed to start the day. Would definitely go back in a heartbeat. The price was right especially for that time of year. The room was as advertised, nice. The staff was very friendly & helpful.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Sheraton Suites On the Hudson Hotel

Time for an Update

from Likestotravelcheaply
We have stayed at this hotel four times in the last two years. I look forward to staying there because of the views, the great hotel restaurant, the wonderful beds,and the easy access to NYC via the ferry. Actually, the local area is pretty impressive and there are lots of nice restaurants and shopping.

The staff has always been accomodating. Even when there have been problems, they have stepped up to make us happy.

All of this is not to stay that there is not room for improvement. One irritating thing is that dishes left in the hallways after room service seem not to be picked up for far too long. There is something about seeing those trays in front of doors for more than twelve hours that I find disconcerting. I have seen this each time I have stayed at the hotel. Finally, while the hotel is clean and welcoming, and the beds are the best thing next to free nights, the rooms are showing the inevitable signs of aging and can use updating.

Despite all of this, I still look forward to our visits there!

Great View!

We stayed at the Sheraton Suites on the Hudson for a weekend wedding. The front desk staff is very friendly & helpful. Our room was clean. But I have to agree with some of the other reviews that the rooms do need to be updated (especially the carpets.) The view of New York City is so beautiful. And we really enjoyed taking the nearby ferries across the Hudson to the city.

Convenient location and nice view, but could use a little upgrade

from awelch2000
Stayed at the Sheraton Suites for one night on business and was generally pleased, but not bowled over. Even though I couldn't see the Empire State Building, I had a nice view out over the old (and admittedly deteriorating)piers to Lower Manhattan. My suite was large, with a huge living/dining room and a good-sized bedroom with a king bed. While the linens were new, the carpet and general feel of the room could use an upgrade. Not bad, just on the verge of getting tired. In-room wireless access was a plus.

Based on the comments in previous reviews, I opted not to give the breakfast a try!

I'd certainly stay there again on business, but, unless I really wanted the view, would look for somewhere else for a special occasion.

25th Wedding Anniversary

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at this hotel in March to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and to visit New York. We asked for and received a room with a view of New York. We were not disappointed. The room was comfortable and clean and the view to New York was stunning especially at night when it lights up. (As we were celebrating our anniversary it would have been a nice gesture if they had left a bottle of champagne in our room!!) However, the common areas of this hotel are shabby and in need of decoration and do not live up to the Sheraton name. Breakfast was included in our deal but as this hotel takes in lots of tour groups it is quite a scramble in the morning if you want to breakfast before the tour groups leave. On one morning there was no plates, glasses or mugs to use. We tended to skip the rush and eat breakfast once we were in the City. As we were out most of the time we did not use the hotel restaurant to eat but did have some drinks in the bar which were very expensive. If you visit you must go to Ruth's Chris steak House just across the road which offers excellent food. The reception staff were curteous but they had difficulty understanding our London accents and none of the cleaning staff speak English. The ferry which operates just by the hotel was very efficient. It takes you across to the City and there are free buses to take you downtown, midtown or uptown. On the return journey you just flag down the ferry bus and it will stop to pick you up. The hotel will sell you tickets for the ferry at $6.00 each way which can work out quite expensive and it would be nice to be able to purchase a weekly ticket to save you time and money. Unfortunately, the ferry does not operate on a Saturday or Sunday and you have to travel to Port Imperial a 5 minute ride away to pick up a ferry there. The hotel operates a courtesy bus but you must remember to ring them on the return journey to tell them what ferry you are on so they are there to pick you up. We did not have any problems with this but if there are lots of people waiting, especially on the last ferry of the day, you might have to wait for a while!! That said we loved the journey across the river every day. It is very efficient. One down side is if you shop and want to drop off anything at the hotel which would mean an extra ferry crossing. We had a great time in New York and can't wait for the next visit. Not sure if we would consider the Sheraton in Weehawken next time. You could probably find a hotel in the city which offers better value for money.

Still a favorite . . . but

from Brian Thomas
I have stayed in this hotel many time and always come back. The rooms are huge, the views are great and the location is outstanding, with a ferry service directly into the city. The executive suites are gigantic and well worth the upgrade.

This said, on my last visit, the common areas of the hotel were not clean and the quality of the breakfast restaurant was horrible. It is free with the room and should be. Skip it and visit the deli across the street.

Other than that, the bones of the building provide quiet and nice views. The staff is very nice and the rooms are well cared-for.

This hotel has deteriorated

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was decent before, at least room service was okay but they changed the restaurant and the new one is awful. I can not stress how awful the food was. Every single meal was terrible. The room was awful as well. The wall paper was falling off, the door handle to the bathroom was broken, the hallways were dirty, and the housekeepers dont speak a word of English and are extra rude to boot. I told the manager about the conditions and he was rude as well, he did not seem to care one bit about the hotel. The location is good, nice view if you have a water front room but certainly not worth the price you pay. These people need a course in hospitality fast!!!

Fabulous waterfront view, Javits Center easy by ferry

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Sheraton Suites on the Hudson in November 2004 at the recommendation of friends who had stayed there to attend the New York gift show at Javits Center. The New York ferry docks right at the Sheraton parking lot and ends up across the river about two blocks from Javits. Easy, short commute, fare $6.30 one way.

The New York waterfront view was so lovely I left the shades open all night. The Sheraton had a fairly good Italian restaurant, and there's also a Ruth's Chris steak house across the street. Full breakfast was included with my $109 Sheraton suite--small, but had a foldout couch and desk slightly separated from the bedroom.

In downtown Norfolk, Va., the Sheraton Suites is far bigger and nicer with a wonderful river view, $99 in September 2004. I'd go to either hotel again.

Amazing View, Bad Hotel Service

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you a planning a vacation in NYC and want to save money on a decent hotel, this hotel may disappoint you. My husband and I celebrated our 1st year wedding anniversary. We received a room with an amazing view of NYC and the harbor. This view was worth all of the hotel problems we encountered. The bathroom had a freshly spackled leak that fell into the tub on our second night, making a mess. The hotel had no other rooms (with a view) to give us. The maid turns the heat off each morning, so we were welcomed to a cold room every day we stayed. (The heater took 3 hours to warm the room.) Two lights in the seating area were missing light bulbs, so the room was dark. The phone had a bad cord (static). The restaurant staff was not friendly and acted like they didn't want to be bothered. We were turned away once because they were not ready for us, so we went to bed without dinner. Another night, they made me wait 30 minutes for one tiny slice of pie to take back to my room, and they charged me $8.00 for it. If you utilize the free breakfast, you must have a dated voucher or you will be turned away, even though your name is written in the hostess book. There's a ferry next to the hotel, but it only operates on weekdays. On weekends, you must travel one mile to Port Imperial to cross the harbor. The hotel offers a free shuttle, but there are lots of folks waiting to board the only two vans available, and large groups are permitted to board first. The maids were nice and the room was clean. The ferry cost about $13.00 per person per day. Due to the cost of ferry tickets and other items to make our stay functional, we realized we did not save money. Next time, we will stay directly in NYC.

Great value for money, will definitely go back there

from Canada-freak
After reading the reviews on tripadvisor.com I was a bit apprehensive but still went ahead and booked a room at this hotel, prepared for some bad encounters. But we loved the place! Very conveniently located, and although we stayed here at the weekend (when the ferry at the hotel's doorstep does not run) and had to use the complimentary shuttle to the ferry terminal, it was the best way to see NYC. At the NY ferry terminal free bus rides take you downtown, midtown and uptown, and you can use them again (for free) when it's time to go back to Weehawken. A quick phone call from the NY ferry terminal gives the hotel van driver enough time to get to the NJ ferry terminal to pick you up when the ferry lands (make sure you ask the driver for a business card).
As for the hotel itself: friendly, helpful staff - nice and spacy rooms - fabulous beds - and the view....I wish I could wake up to a view like that every morning! It had everything it needed, and it was very nice to be away from all the city centre's hustle and bustle at night time.

It was our first trip to New York, and we loved everything about it. We will hopefully go back there next year, and will without a doubt stay at the Sheraton Suites on the Hudson again!

Tip: walk a few hundred meters north along the water. From the deck of the restaurant here (I can't remember the name) you get a fabulous view of the Manhattan skyline. Also make sure to have a meal at Ruth Chris' Steak place across the street from the hotel: Superb food and staff!!!

An Ideal Monday Holiday...With A Postcard View

from A TripAdvisor Member
On Columbus Day weekend 2004, the Sheraton Suites on the Hudson was unquestionably the most luxurious value in New York. For under $160 on Sunday night, by requesting a river view room, we went to bed with a stunning view of the Midtown Manhatten skyline and woke to a very substantial buffet breakfast. We gratefully abandoned the car for the day at the hotel and crossed the Hudson on a 5-minute passenger ferry ride from a dock within 100 feet of the lobby, with a free shuttle to Times Square. The rooms were spotless and well-maintained, and the separate office/sitting area (with microwave, coffee service, and fridge) provided the privacy to let me watch Sunday night football while spouse worked on the Net using the hotel's Internet connection. Definitely plan on staying here again the next time business requires me to be "in New York."
