I still think something in the Poconos would probably be the best bet, it's not too far a drive from NYC and you don't have the "why not jersey" factor...

Westin Harbour Castle can be fun-all the visiting baseball teams stay there!  Just moved up from a cat. 3 to a cat. 4 though.

Tell me about it, Dan. We stayed in the Westin Harbour Castle the night of our wedding and had to wait for the Chicago White Socks to check in before us!!! :)

My 2 cents:

If the point of this Shabbathon is a long weekend and family getaway then it might pay to travel far to a place like Niagra. However, chances are there will be a lot less people since it is probably not convenient for most people will full time jobs and kids.

If the point is just to spend a nice Shabbos together (similar to the NYC DO but on a larger scale) then a local NJ hotel should be fine. If there is an pool where the kids can swim on friday and M"S and we get a conference room to hang out what more do we need? Its not like you can tour on shabbos!!! If you want to make a bigger trip then check out Sunday morning and take the family on a day trip.

I am surprised no one mentioned long island. I am sure there are plenty of nice place out there, and it it so close to NYC. Try fire island, or the Hampton's,  Montauk, Jones Beach, pretty much anywhere nice on the island would be cool.

Any interest in a shabbaton in the NY area the shabbos after Shavuos (June 11)? 
I realize it may be tough as Shavuos ends Thursday, but I may be in NYC that Sunday anyway.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
