We enjoyed our 2 nights at the HR Jersey City, we had room 111 on the ground floor with a NYC view across the Hudson. Pretty much Hyatt standard, clean, comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Maybe too much furniture would be my only criticism. Gym and indoor pool on this level.
The view from the bar and restaurant are just amazing, day and especially at night. Not sure you would get views of Manhattan like that on Manhattan?
The rates at this hotel certainly make it a viable option for visiting NYC, there is a PATH station right outside, $2.75, 1 stop, 3 minutes and bang, you are at WTC.
Starbucks nearly on the door step too.
Food was very good at the bar, happy to split an order as well.
We had dinner in the main restaurant, a rib eye and a Sirloin, we stuffed the lot, even though they were big American portions. Very tasty and service was good.
Would certainly return if in the area again.
