How to enjoy the glamour and fun of NYC without the cost!

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

It’s no secret that New York City is pricey. While you can definitely do NYC on a budget the one thing I can never get cheap enough is accommodations. So sometimes when you really want to visit a destination, but don’t want to break the bank you have to get a little more creative; think outside of the box. Family friendly accommodations can also be really tricky in the city; no family wants to be crammed together for their whole vacation. Right across the Hudson River no more than 10 minutes away you will find Embassy Suites Secaucus that has rooms especially designed for families and groups.

This is our family’s top tip for saving a ton of money while still being able to enjoy the Big Apple! You don’t have to stay on Manhattan to enjoy all it has to offer. You don’t even need a car if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of driving it in the city and parking. You can just jump on a bus right across from the hotel that goes right into the city.

Embassy Suites Secaucus offers many different room types, but all of them have one thing in common; space! They are so roomy that any size family could feel at home. We stayed in the presidential suite during our last stay and enjoyed over 1,000 sq. ft. and two separate bedrooms for a fraction of what a presidential suite would come to in the city. Another amazing benefit of staying at The Embassy Suites Secaucus is the complimentary breakfast buffet. The whole family can sit down to an amazing breakfast before heading into the city. They also have made to order items that are freshly made by the amazing cooks at the property.

These cooks know what they are doing too as most of them have been working for the property for many years. I love coming back year after year and seeing the same incredibly friendly staff! A favorite of most that stay at the hotel is the nightly manager’s reception. You can grab a few snacks provided and a drink and just unwind from the day. It’s a fantastic way to spend the evening.

I have also found it very difficult to get a hotel in the city with a pool and luckily the Embassy Suites Secaucus has a great one that the whole family can enjoy. During our last stay we really loved it since it was snowing outside and the pool is indoors and heated. The property has laundry facilities to handle any wet swimsuits afterward.

If you are looking to enjoy NYC without going over budget I can’t think of a better option (especially for families) than Embassy Suites Secaucus. Head over here to check out how the property can make your trip to the Big Apple even better!

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
