EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ—Following the first phase of a multi-million dollar renovation, the 427-room Hilton Meadowlands Hotel opened at Two Meadowlands Plaza in East Rutherford. PM Hospitality Strategies, Inc. (PMHS) will operate the former Sheraton branded hotel and oversee the second phase of the renovation.
The hotel is situated across the street from the Meadowlands Complex, including the MetLife Stadium, home of the 2014 Super Bowl. The Hilton Meadowlands Hotel has special Super Bowl packages posted on its website.
The property is just minutes away from Manhattan, with access via the Secaucus Junction, Frank P. Lautenberg Rail Station. The hotel offers hourly shuttle service to the rail station, which is a six-minute ride to NY’s Penn Station 34th Street. The hotel also is proximate (15 minutes) to Newark Liberty International Airport.
“We have a strong relationship with all the leading brands and believe this property will be well received as a Hilton, especially with its popular HHonors guest loyalty program,” stated Joseph Bojanowski, president of PM Hospitality Strategies. “The hotel lobby and hallways, along with half the guest rooms, were completely refurbished, creating a totally new ambience. The remaining rooms and meeting space are scheduled to begin renovation later next year.”
The Hilton Meadowlands Hotel’s close proximity to Manhattan and to Northern New Jersey office space caters to both business and leisure travelers. Offering 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, the hotel is one of the area’s most sought after gathering places.
The Hilton Meadowlands Hotel is also contributing to environmental efforts. The highlight is a solar carport, which can produce 1.1 megawatts of clean energy annually, providing approximately 20% of the property’s electricity requirements. Other programs include composting of organic waste, recycling meeting waste, donating food, eliminating Styrofoam and using energy-efficient digital signage.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
