The Heldrich Hotel: A New Jersey Home For The Holidays

By: Gretchen Kelly

As travelers head toward New York City for holiday season, planning a classic wintery mix of shopping, window-gazing and tree trimming at Rockefeller Center, hotels on the fringes of Manhattan are getting more love than usual.

With lower prices and the chance of more flexible availability than their Gotham-side counterparts, hotels like New Brunswick, New Jersey's Heldrich make smart holiday sense for out-of-towners looking for a "Silver Bells" Christmas/holiday time in the city.

The Heldrich, a 235-boutique-style hotel with sophisticated design and a robust lobby art collection gets extra points for being right across the street from The State Theatre New Jersey where travelers can get in extra holiday cheer with a diverse and crowd pleasing roster of shows (recent shows include an evening discussing the American presidency with famed Watergate reporter, Bob Woodward and a full orchestra performance of the music from Star Wars. On other holiday occasions 60s superstar, Jose Feliciano has performed a special "Feliz Navidad" holiday show while a guest of the Heldrich himself).
