While the cast of the Jersey Shore are on the move for their second season, don't expect Snookie, JWOWW, Sammi, Ronny, DJ Pauly D and Vinnie to show up at the opening of the new Element Hotel in New Jersey.
The green, extended stay spin-off from Westin Hotels has opened its fifth hotel in Ewing, which is just outside Princeton and near the state's capital, Trenton. Like the rest of the Element Hotels, the new location is in a suburb that's home to corporations like Bristol-Myers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson,and Educational Testing Services (where your SATs get sent) and the Robert Wood Johnson hospital.
Also, like other Element Hotels, the Ewing location has a sundry shop, a laundry room, a 24-hour business center, free WiFi, and premium parking for hybrids. But what's different here is that this Element has an indoor pool and an evening reception, called Relax, from Monday through Thursday from 6 to 7:30pm. Wines and locally brewed beers are served along with appetizers.
Rates for tonight start at $159 a night for a standard king room but there are a few specials going on. Every night you book, you get the second one 50 percent off. Also if you book three nights with your American Express card, you will get the fourth night free.
We just hope the Element hotels kick-ass free breakfast bar serves taylor ham on those sandwiches. Or pork roll, which is what they call it in these parts.
