Hotels Near Lake Hopatcong, NJ Cheer on the Powerboat Grand Prix

While Racing Teams Conquer the Water, the Courtyard Rockaway-Mt. Arlington Provides the Perfect Escape for Spectators

MOUNT ARLINGTON, NJ--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - Embraced by 45 miles of shoreline, the sparkling waters of Lake Hopatcong are usually pretty peaceful. Stately homes and swathes of trees hem in the lapping waves, while the occasional boat sails by. But from May 2 to 4, 2014, the Offshore Powerboat Association (OPA) will be making waves -- literally and figuratively -- while it facilitates the Lake Hopatcong Grand Prix. And as onlookers race into town, the Courtyard Rockaway-Mt. Arlington will be ready with first-rate accommodations.

As a premier hotel near Lake Hopatcong, the property offers Grand Prix attendees a comfortable and convenient base from which they can enjoy the races. Getting them off on the right start is The Bistro, where Starbucks specialty drinks and dishes like oatmeal, fresh fruit, eggs and French toast are all available to energize guests for a day out on the water.

But it's the location of this hotel near Budd Lake, New Jersey that really positions visitors well. Its close proximity to Lake Hopatcong means guests can get to and from the races almost as quickly as the boats can make a lap around the course.

At the end of the day, travelers can once again discover why this property stands out as the best option among Morris County hotels. The stylish new lobby invites them to relax in the open floor plan's intimate seating areas comprised of tables, couches and banquettes as they review the races' highlights. Or they can enjoy dinner at The Bistro, which serves a variety of sandwiches, burgers, soups, salads and flat breads in the evening, along with cocktails, wine and beer. And for those who'd like to stretch their legs before calling it a night, an indoor pool, whirlpool and fitness room are all available.

Of course, with the recently renovated guest rooms to look forward to, retiring for the evening can be almost as much fun as heading to the Grand Prix. Satellite television with premium cable packages, free Wi-Fi access and 37-inch, flat-screen televisions outfit every room. And the Rockaway, NJ hotel suites offer even more space with living rooms and pull-out sofas.

The Lake Hopatcong Grand Prix may get everyone's adrenaline going for a few days, but it's the Courtyard Rockaway-Mt. Arlington that ensures the adventure begins and ends on a high note.
