Quoting Catatonic (Thread starter):

The only thing decent is the Hyatt downtown and the Hilton which is near the Turnpike, not sure if they are cheap though.

Downtown Newark is beautiful this time of year. It's very invigorating to walk outside and smell the swamp, not to mention the beautiful sights.

Catatonic,

As a graduate of Rutgers University and resident of New Jersey for much of my youth, I am quite familiar with the New Brunswick area. If you will be arriving after the first week in May I would suggest looking into the housing located near Rutgers, as most students will have departed for the summer and the landlords will be looking to make additional income. These homes aren't in the best condition, as they mainly serve the student community, however they are located just a few blocks from the George St. and Albany St. commercial districts, as well as the train station.

The only hotel in New Brunswick proper is the Hyatt Regency, though their rates are quite high due to the demand created for luxury rooms by Johnson and Johnson's world headquarters located across the street. Assuming you will have access to a car I would look into extended stay properties in Edison and Somerset. If you do not have a car I would try to stay near one of the stations along the Northeast Corridor line, as it will be the easiest way to commute.

Hope this helps,

ElkGrove

We just stayed at the Hilton East Brunswick last week and were able to get it through Priceline for $45/night. The rates vary I'm sure, but you should be able to get somewhere close to that again. As far as the hotel itself, it was very comfortable, juts be sure to allow $6/day for parking if you'll have a car with you.

What's Newark have to do with New Brunswick, they are not even in the same County.

New Brunswick is like a doughnut. Empty space = good, fried batter = bad.

Your best bet is the Hilton as its just a block from Rutgers, the train station, and Johnson & Johnson.

And you can eat at Old Man Rafferty's. And if you like heartburn and indigestions, the grease trucks.  yummy   yummy

He's a student.

He's staying for four weeks.

Unless daddy is Abdul Jalla and owns all the oil in Amman, do you think he could afford a Hilton or a Hyatt for four weeks?

Give him links to local papers for subleasing options. or Extended Stay Suite options.

You mean the Hyatt, the Hilton is on Rt 18 by the Turnpike.

Newbrunswick is a fun town, lots of College bars and restaraunts. Also the New Brunswick rail station is on the Northeast corridor line with Amtrak and NJ Transit service, you can be in Manhattan, Princeton or Philly quick.

My son suggested that you try the following link:

http://ruoffcampus.rutgers.edu/search/search.asp

It has a list of summer sublets in the New Brunswick area.

expedia.com lists the Extended Stay in Brunswick for $60/night from 15/Apr -> 14/May.

I've stayed at the extended stay in Edison in 99/2000 for a couple of months. It was an OK place to stay (self catering facilities). Fortunately I could see my work place from the hotel room, so commuting was very convenient.
