Sheraton Meadowlands – Seacaucus, NJ

Hotel Review

The Frequent Traveler University (FTU) event brought me to this property located just off the NJ Turnpike and Rte. 3 by the Meadowlands.  Check-in was fine and I receieved a pretty standard room.  As a SPG Gold member, there is no access to the Club level or lounge.  Instead, you get a choice of free internet or a free drink or some other amenity.

I took the internet option but have to say that the wireless internet in this hotel was the slowest I’ve had for a while.

The meeting facilities themselves were very good.  Their is a Starbucks in the lobby and the restaurant and bar was nice.  There are several nearby restaurant and shopping options but make sure you have clear directions on how to get back to the hotel because it can be tricky.

Incidentally, had dinner at Minado, a Japanese seafood buffet in nearby Little Ferry.  It was outstanding!

I’m not sure I would stay here on next visit as there are plenty of options in the area, but wouldn’t go out of my way to avoid it, either.

Final Grade: B

Points and Dollars

My total spend for my two nights was $351.

For this, I earned 626 base points SPG Elite 50% bonus of 313 points.  Since I charged it to my SPG American Express Card, I will also receive another 702 points (2 points per dollar) for a total of 1,641 points.
