- Pittsburgh, Pa.
I stayed at the Fairfield Inn a year ago and it served my purposes well but this time around, when I checked the price was double that of The New Yorker, so no brainer for me, even though am a Bonvoy member.Awesome trip report! Yes, I always choose the north side of the train but mostly to avoid the glare of the sun. I've been meaning to take a trip from NYP out to the 'Island' on the Long Island trains... hope to do it soon.
For a perfect hotel at NYP always try to get the Fairfield Inn across the street. Always wangle a way with points to stay there for free... but ya need a lot of points!
While there I have no hesitation to get a meal from the Halal trucks... really good and New York is strict with food inspections so it's always been a good choice for me.
RE: North along the Hudson [on the Hudson side of course] is some of the best viewing Amtrak has to offer. Below taken last winter:
