We booked this hotel to visit friends in North Jersey and attend a festival in NYC. The price, proximity to public transportation, and ease of parking drew us to this property. The GPS got us a little turned around a couple of blocks from the hotel, but we were pleased to find a secure lot in a nice part of town. Check-in was a breeze and we took the elevator to our second floor room. The hotel was very clean and at a comfortable temperature. The room had a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, two-burner stove, sink, a coffemaker, hood microwave, and cabinets with pots, pans, plates, etc. There was a full-sized closet across from the kitchenette. Next to the kitchenette was a desk area with two chairs, plenty of table space and HDtv in the corner. The queen bed was across from the desk. There were two small tables on either side of the bed. There was also a large easy chair next to the bed that was somewhat awkwardly placed. The bathroom was rather spacious with plenty of counter and storage space and a full-sized tub. There was a wall unit heater/air conditioning which we didn't need to use since the hotel was at a comfortable temperature.
We wanted to find a local bar with a friend. The Hyatt by Exchange Place fit the bill. When we got back, we were looking forward to a restful night of sleep. However, various noises kept us from sleeping. The toilet flushed very loudly and often took long to fill. The woman next door was very loud and talked non-stop. People were talking in the halls. If the people above us or next to us ran the water, we heard it loud and clear. As you can see, the walls are way too thin in this place. This is a shame because it is convienently located near public transportation and just minutes from the greatest city in the world. I would stay in this part of Jersey City again, but would likely consider another property first.
