New Jersey may be known for its shore, but if you head to its suburbs instead of its beach towns, you’ll discover that the Garden State is as rich in flora and fauna as the nickname suggests. Parks and trails abound here, such as in Bergen County, where you’ll find Flat Rock Brook Nature Center – a 150-acre preserve, set on the edge of the Palisades and across the Hudson from New York. You’ll be just a few minutes from this scenic destination as a guest at Crowne Plaza Englewood. And thanks to the George Washington Bridge entrance in the neighboring town of Fort Lee, you’ll be only a bit farther from all the best sights in the City that Never Sleeps.
The rest of the time that you’re not exploring the wild or taking Manhattan, catch some sleep yourself. Your room is warmly decorated in inviting tones, with movie channels on the 37-in. flat-screen TV and a generous seven layers of bedding on your mattress. There’s also an indoor swimming pool, and you can tend to any exercise needs at the well-equipped fitness center. And when you’re ready to face New Jersey nature or New York City again, you need only fuel up with a bite or a drink at Blue City Grille American restaurant, which serves three meals a day.
Your Wi-Fi-equipped room holds a 37-in. flat-screen cable and satellite HDTV with movie options, plus a stereo and a CD player. Channel surf from your bed, dressed in seven layers of linens. Standard rooms hold either one king or two double beds.
Amenities- Coffeemaker?- Work desk with lamp- Desk-level electrical outlet- Two dual-line speakerphones with voicemail- Bathroom with tub- Hair dryer- Double-glazed windows- Individually controlled air conditioning- Separate hanging closet- Sofabed- Microwave (upon request)- Mini-fridge (upon request)
Blue City Grille’s inspiration is a 1920s American restaurant. The eatery dishes up straightforward, yet filling, breakfast, lunch and dinner options. If you’re feeling lazy, order your meal to your room – it can be delivered between the hours of 6am and 10pm daily.
Englewood is a fantastic base for nature lovers, thanks to its expansive Flat Rock Brook Nature Center and its proximity to Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary in Palisades Park. It’s also less than four miles from New York City – though of course, you’ll need to drive down to Fort Lee, where the New Jersey entrance of the George Washington Bridge is located, to get there. Spend your days taking the local trails or taking Manhattan – the choice is yours.
How to Get There
My family stayed here both in March and May for events. Both times we enjoyed a very comfortable stay. Plenty of parking
The rooms are large and well appointed. We slept well in the beds. The breakfast buffet is delicious as well. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. I am sure we will be staying here again.
Stayed for 2 nights whilst on business, have stayed before and the hotel was good last time (a year before) so chose to stay again as I knew what I would get.
But actually they have been refurbishing rooms, and mine was really quite nice.
Service was pleasant, staff friendly, close to the main town so plenty of places for drinks/eats. All in all pretty good I think.
OK so, its not luxurious, but for a business stop over, its great.
Rooms are large, comfortable and clean. This hotel is not in an area where you can walk to restaurants other than the one in the hotel. My only issue was the delay in getting a waiter to take my breakfast order as I did not want to have the buffet.
Just needed this hotel for one evening. It was clean - big bathroom - fridge in room. I would not get the buffet included again - not that great. Would order off the menu . the people we were with ordered from the menu and the food looked much better.
I stayed here a couple years ago and it was a below average property- the staff wasn’t very welcoming and the rooms were decidedly uninspired. What a great change to see today with totally refreshed public areas and sleeping areas great rooms well appointed very friendly staff. I would stay here again without question.
