“Outstanding location, terrific views, stylish rooms, nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I was born and raised in New York and lived there for 30 years, but have not lived there for more than a decade so when I return I need to find lodging. Although my mother is from New Jersey, somehow I had never been to Jersey City. I was amazed.

The Hyatt sits just above the PATH train to the world trade center. In four minutes, you can be downtown, and in another four you can be in the West Village or Chelsea. This is far more convenient than most hotels in Midtown at a fraction of the price.

The views of the NY skyline, statue of liberty, etc. are killer. There are some great runs around the water, and a lively but small downtown within walking distance.

The rooms are stylish and large. One downside of my room was that you can hear all the details of what is happening in the adjoining room when the doors are closed / locked. I was awoken this AM by 30 minutes of phlegm production by the gentleman next door, and on both sides of me I could hear the opening and closing of each notch of the stylish blinds.

I did not use the gym or eat at the hotel.

Our entire family stayed at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City for my husband's work conference the week of April 15-19. I can't say one negative thing about this hotel. The entire experience was wonderful!! Every single staff member was so polite and accommodating. Whether it was the housekeeping staff, front desk, valet, gift shop employees, restaurant staff, etc. Always a "hello" every single time we passed any of them. The room was very clean. The beds were comfortable. The view of Manhattan was absolutely breathtaking! They have a pier where you can either go for a walk or relax on the benches to take in the skyline of Manhattan right across the Hudson River. This was a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, but at the same time still taking it in. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from outside of the hotel as well. I highly recommend a little place down the street called The City Diner. The PATH subway station literally right next door gets you to Manhattan or you can take a water taxi across the river. We felt very safe staying here as well. There was always a police presence right outside of the subway station. I'm not sure if it's always like this or if it's because the Boston bombings were the same week. I would highly recommend the Hyatt Regency Jersey City to anyone that doesn't want to stay directly in the city or anyone that just wants a top notch hotel experience. I would definitely stay there again. The only negative (and this has nothing to do with the hotel) is that it does get a little pricey for a family of five to keep going between NJ and NY on the subway multiple times a day.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of Manhattan

mamwalters,

Thank you for such a detailed review! I am happy to hear you had such a wonderful time and our staff only added to that experience. During the week with the Boston events, we did have higher security in the area so that you are correct on. I know the transportation for a family of five can definitely add up quickly on the subways but it does beat paying the high prices staying in NYC! Hope to see you and your family again soon!

Best,

Megan Gederian

We stayed here whilst visiting NYC. Its in a great location, with fabulous views across the Hudson River across the water to Lower Manhattan. The PATH train was right outside the Hotel, offering easy access to the City.Great location.

Room Tip: Take a River view looking South across the river , and towards the statue( SOL).

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City for 1 night to attend a family function in New York City. I purposely chose this particular hotel since my previous stay was pretty pleasant and the proximity to the city via PATH train.
When we arrived at a bit before 1 pm, no 2 double beds room was available for an immediate check-in for the category that we booked for, but we were told if we pay $20 upgrade fee, several rooms are available -- one with the Statue of Liberty view, or the other one with the Manahttan skyline. We decided $20 was worth it so that we can settle down after a long drive and not have to wait till 4 pm. As to the view, we were indifferent.
We went up to the room and was a bit dissapointed with the "view". We are from NYC originally, so the Statue of Liberty view is no big deal, but the room only has the side-view of the Statue, and otherwise, just the view of Berrazano Bridge and the NYC Harbour pretty much. I would think the Manhattan skyline would probably be nicer.

We noticed that there were a couple of weddings taking place at the property on the particular day. Did not think too much of it -- after all it is spring, and I am sure this must be the high season for the wedding. Then, at around 8 pm or so, our whole room started to vibrate and shake, apparently from the reception floor 2 floors up from us. My husband immediately went downstaris and complained especailly when we paid the supposedly, "Upgrade" fee.
They immediately offered us to move to a lower floor and agreed to refund the fee. We moved down 2 more floors, and though we could still hear the "thump-thump" of the music, it was not as bad. As soon as we relocated, we received a phone call from the manager asking us if we were satisfied with our new room, which was nice.
(btw. the room was supposedly in the lower category, but it had almost identical view as the "Upgraded" room.)
Then, the manager also sent us a hand-written note with an apology and the offers for the comp. breakfast for 2 (tax/tip included), which was again a nice gesture. At the end of the day, we recieved 2 more letters, one from the Gold Passport support, and another one from the Banquet Manager. I really feel the "noise" was probably pretty much unavoidable in any room at the property, but at least, they tried to make it better somehow.

We booked this hotel literally the night before our departure, just because I was craving for the bubble tea and Chinese food in NYC. If you do not want to spend $300+/night for a small room in NYC yet would like to explore the city by public transportation,this is the hotel for you. The hotel is adjacent to the Exchange Station, from which it only took us 4 minutes to go to the World Trade Center. The facility and room are typical for the Regency line, the view of NYC skyscrapers at night is amazing, the bathroom is clean, the front desk and other staff are friendly. If you do not want to spend $32 for valet parking over night, you can walk a couple of blocks and try to find street parking-we did it and it only cost us $3. Another tip is if you want to visit more than 2 stops in NYC, get a smartlink day pass:one stop in NYC will cost you $2.75, and the round trip between Exchange station to world trade center will be around 4.5 let alone you will also pay $1 for the card fee. The day pass will be $6.75+$5(card fee).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with city view.

This is my 3rd visit to this hotel and still find the veiw amazing, Hotel is typical Hyatt - but the location more than makes up for any shortfalls Path train is directly out side 3mins to world tradecentre - 5 mins to times square. Location is on the hudson directly opposite Manhatten with un interupted veiws of the skyline fabulous especially at night also views to Statue of Liberty from many rooms. great Veiws, Great Service and central to Manhatten without the Hussle Bussle and noise. 5* everytime

Room Tip: most rooms have either Manhatten or Staue of Liberty veiws higher floors are best

The view from our room on the 6th floor was superb. We could see the Manhatten skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Location right next to the PATH station which is literally a few minutes from the World Trade Centre. There is also a ferry service just a couple of blocks away. Our room and bathroom were very pleasant and spotlessly clean.
We found all staff to be very friendly and happy to help. They gave us a list of restaurants nearby - we tried 4 and found all to be very good, especially La Source and Henry's on the Hudson. The tax is less in New Jersey too!
We liked spending the day in the city and then returning to New Jersey for a quiet evening.
