Just a quick hop across the Hudson River from New York City lies Secaucus, New Jersey, a suburban enclave that feels far removed from the Big Apple bustle. For its residents and commuting workers, Secaucus offers the best of both worlds: easy access to the iconic sites of Manhattan and New York, and a retreat from the same. Better yet for holidaymakers is the fact that the best hotels in Secaucus offer just as much comfort as the finest in New York, but at much more affordable rates. Here are the top hotels in Secaucus – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Courtyard Secaucus Meadowlands, for easy escapes

Like many of the best hotels in Secaucus, Courtyard Secaucus Meadowlands is just off the New Jersey Turnpike, sweeping you easily through the Lincoln Tunnel to the south and so to Times Square, or the George Washington Bridge to the north, which offers access to picturesque Fort Washington Park. Back at base, you’ll get calming colors, plush bedding and ergonomic workstations in your guest room, as well as access to a fitness center and theater.

2. Hilton Garden Inn Secaucus / Meadowlands, for on-the-go globetrotters

Need to satiate a desire to spend? The massive American Dream complex is only 4mi (6km) away, offering shopping, dining and entertainment — and even a water park and ski slope.

Right across the street from a copse of trees that are part of the Hackensack Meadowlands, this Hyatt Place is clear of the interstate roar, making it a great choice for sightseers craving R&R.
