I am hoping someone can provide hotel ideas. Normally we stay on International (Gilchmer Realty) in Elizabeth near the mall but that does not seem to be a good location for accessing the PATH to the city.
There are 2 of us sailing July 20 2020 on the Empress of the Seas out of Bayonne. We will be taking Amtrak from the DC area to Newark on Saturday the 18th. We will need a room with 2 beds for 2 nights. We are flexible concerning hotel chain - I prefer Marriott properties, BFF likes Hilton. I would like to stay below $250 per night but also know NY/NJ is pricey. I am thinking staying in NJ because getting to the port on a Monday morning would be easier. We have both visited New York City many times for work and vacation so the 911 memorial is the one thing we want to see and plan to go to the memorial and museum on the 19th. I need to buy tickets online 6 months in advance. I saw the information on this thread and read the sticky that the PATH on the weekend will require using a Ferry.
Thanks in Advance for Any Advice
