About Best Western Fort Lee
Fort Lee, New Jersey, an historic town that sits atop the beautiful Hudson Palisades, may not carry the same the cache as Manhattan, but you shouldn’t let its zip code rule it out as a place to stay when visiting New York. The Best Western Fort Lee’s close proximity to Manhattan via a quick trip across the George Washington Bridge allows travelers the flexibility to conduct business or visit family and friends in New Jersey, and then hop-skip-and-jump (or take a cab) over the bridge to enjoy Manhattan’s top attractions. The Best Western Fort Lee makes its location even more enticing by offering a comfortable respite from Manhattan lodging prices, too.
Situated across the Hudson River from the Washington Heights neighborhood in upper Manhattan, Fort Lee (named for General Charles Lee) was occupied by George Washington and the Continental Army in 1776, during the British campaign to control New York City and the Hudson River. Fort Lee Historic Park commemorates the role of Fort Lee during the American Revolution, including the Continental Army’s “Retreat to Victory.”
Visitors staying in Fort Lee often take advantage of the New Jersey location to visit both the Paramus Park and Palisades Center shopping malls (popular with bargain-hunting New Yorkers), while sports fans appreciate the short drive to MetLife Stadium – home to the New York Giants and New York Jets NFL teams and Yankee Stadium – home to the New York Yankees baseball team.
Guests at the Best Western Fort Lee will appreciate Best Western’s hallmark classic and homey touches: a dark-wood check-in desk complete with friendly, knowledgeable staff and a relaxing lounge area featuring tables and chairs, where guests can unwind with the morning paper while they enjoy a free continental breakfast, complete with make-your-own Belgian waffles, croissants, fresh coffee and other assorted morning treats.
Rooms are clean and comfortable and outfitted with a king bed (or a queen sofa pullout), a calm decor with crisp white duvet covers, plump pillows, free Wi-Fi, a 27-inch flat-screen TV, a refrigerator, a desk perfect for writing wish-you-were-here postcards, and a workout room for those who crave even more activity.
A quick cab or car ride across the bridge takes you to all the sights of Manhattan. Or you can opt to enjoy some more familiar comforts close by, like the Cheesecake Factory or the Red Oak Diner (open twenty-four hours).

Palisades Interstate Park, only 2.5 miles from the hotel, is home to the iconic and rocky cliffs of the Palisades, which offer spectacular views of Manhattan, the Hudson River and thirty miles of hiking trails.

The Best Western Fort Lee is perfect for travelers who are looking for a more economic alternative to Manhattan but still want easy access to the city; sports fans who don’t want to deal with Manhattan traffic after a game at MetLife or Yankee Stadium; and shoppers who want to spend their days shopping New Jersey’s many malls with the option of spending evenings in nearby Manhattan. Pet lovers will appreciate the pet-friendly policy.
