We ended up staying in Jersey City at the Westin for our latest trip to NYC. It had a Path train just a couple of blocks away. About a 10-15 minute walk away was the Ferry over to the WTC area. My granddaughter loved the Ferry. The room was comfortable but what was very impressive was the service. If we needed ANYTHING, it was taken care of immediately. My only reservation about this hotel was that I didn't have any kind of view of the NYC skyline and it was inconvenient going back and forth. It would have been easier to stay right in the City.
