These apartments were ideal, the grove street path station is right across the road with only 2 stops to world trade. It’s location is ideal for a New York holiday. The apartments were clean and modern. Ideal for a family group. We had a 1 bed apartment and travelled with 2 adults and 2 kids 18 and 25. This was plenty big for our group. The other family travelling with us had 2 adults and 3 kids 14,18 and 21 they booked the 2 bed roomed apt lots of room and also ideal for that group. We flew to Newark airport which is only half an hour away and hired cars to drive to jersey city. Apt is only 20 min drive to jersey gardens outlet. While there is no parking at apt’s we used a multi storey across the road at 25 dollars a day.
I booked Dharma Suites after recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. I booked one of the Luxury two bed options and it was incredibly spacious, had two bathrooms and was a corner unit so had great views.
Apartment had a real quality feel, excellent bathrooms, one had a bath and top end kitchen appliances.
Best part was being central to Grove Street Station area with lots of restaurants, supermarkets etc and the PATH train which gets you into One World Trade in 10 mins for $3.
Note it is not a hotel so no room service, it is more like Air BnB than a hotel experience. Support from Dharma team was excellent but one area of improvement is that there is nowhere to leave left luggage and we had a late flight. Customer service said we could leave at their offices but it had snowed and not ideal to transport there.
Overall would use again if visiting New York.
This was marketed as a luxury apartment on hotels.com. It didn't live up to its claim.
The apartment was spacious, generally well designed and convenient --- just a few minutes to the Path station --- but that was about it.
For that price point, I think I would have been better off staying in a hotel with an array of services.
What annoyed me was that I received an email on the first night of my stay requesting for approval to enter the apartment to fix some issues with the modem.
I had told the concierge that I did not wish to be disturbed but the next day, a staff kept knocking on the door and even tried to open the front door which I had latched from the inside. This is simply not acceptable. Guests have a right to privacy and to enjoy uninterrupted rest. The operator clearly failed to understand this and violated my space.
And when a place is being marketed as Dharna Hone Suites, one would expect the signage outside to reflect this. This was not the case and ended up costing me both time and money as my cab had to go around the block more than once finding the place.
