Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. The Hilton Meadowlands is across the street from East Rutherford's stadiums and racetracks, including the Meadowlands Racetrack, the Izod Center, and the New Meadowlands Stadium, home of the New York Giants and Jets. Get tickets for your favorite headliner or family event; the Meadowlands Sports Complex, also across the street, hosts concerts and shows year-round. The hotel's complimentary shuttle can take you to select stops within a 3-mile (4.8-kilometer) radius, or to the Harmon Cove Outlet Center, about 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) south. The shuttle also services the Secaucus Junction station, where you can catch a train to New York's Penn Station, about 15 minutes away.
After a day of meetings or sightseeing, the Hilton's heated indoor pool is a welcome oasis. Swim a few laps, splash around with your kids, or just relax in a lounge chair, taking in views of the Manhattan skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. Next to the pool, you'll find the 24-hour fitness center. In the warmer months, you can kick back on the outdoor sundeck.
If you've worked up an appetite, sit down to American favorites at the Chairman's Grill, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Lounge offers a casual, sophisticated space for a cocktail or 2. Starbucks, conveniently located in the lobby, pairs a long list of coffee drinks with tantalizing pastries. And if what you want most is privacy, room service is available (limited hours).
Need to get a little business out of the way? The 24-hour business center offers printing and computers. WiFi and wired Internet are complimentary. Extensive meeting-and-event spaces totaling 30,000 square feet (2,700 square meters) include a ballroom and a boardroom. A free shuttle will take you to and from the airport with advance notice.
Guestrooms are comfortable retreats with city views, wireless/wired Internet access (surcharge), and 32-inch TVs with premium channels. All rooms are smoke-free. Upgrade your experience with a Club Level room, which includes complimentary breakfast and complimentary hors d'oeuvres in the Club Lounge.
