“Fun in New York”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

The Westin hotel is beautiful and very comfortable, the location is across the river in New Jersey but is right on the Path subway line, so you can feel free to travel into New York City any time you want. The room has enough space to walk around and the beds are amazing! It was like sleeping on a fluffy cloud, just the perfect amount of pillows! I know most hotels always do this, but I don't think it's fair to stock the room with unreasonably priced snacks. The most annoying part is that the food takes up all the fridge space. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The fitness Centre was pretty good, from my parents point of view, and the pool was very relaxing and fresh, but the hot tub was awful. The hot tube smelled a bit funky and looked a little greenish. Overall the Westin is a good choice because it's near the Path and the streets were very quiet. I recommend a stay of more than a week at this hotel if the purpose is to travel back and forth into New York City.  It is very exhausting to travel back and forth from New Jersey to New York trying to fit everything into your stay.

Stayed here for 5 nights in September and loved it. A walk away from the PATH train which takes you to 33rd Street in 15 minutes. Buy a metro card pre-loaded with $ and this can be used on the subway as well. The hotel is spotless and the staff are eager to please. I asked for a late check out and they were extremely obliging. The room was spacious with large comfy beds and great amenities. The shower was powerful and hot water constantly. I have stayed in Manhattan lots of times and this hotel was far superior.

There is a mall next door and lost of restuarants within walking distance. The view from the waterfront is spectacular. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

The hotel is very nice and clean. The rooms were perfect with very comfortable beds. The hotel is about 3 blocks from the PATH (Newport station), it costs 2$ each ride to go to NYC. You can get off at either World Trade Center, Christopher St, 9th St, 14th St, 23rd St and 33rd St. You can then take subway or taxi if you want to go somewhere else in NYC. The pool in the hotel closes at midnight so when you come back from the city you can enjoy it (most pools in hotels close at 10pm). Parking costs 22$ for 24hrs, right beside hotel. There is also a shopping mall you can access by parking. There is a Macy's, Disney Store, Banana Republic, etc. The only complaint I have is that there were not a lot of place to have breakfast aroud the hotel. There is a deli in front of the PATH station but that was it. There is a cuban restaurant near the hotel for diner but we didn't try it. The hotel is located near the marina and can walk by the water, with a nice view of NYC. So overall a nice experience, reasonnable price and good location. Cheaper than staying in NYC!

My wife and I were looking for a quick get away for our anniversary and selected the Westin which was beautiful. Instead of going to Manhattan we selected this hotel due to its Exchange Place location. The lite rail train allowed us to visit a few bars in the area with ease. The walk way on the water front allowed for beautiful views of the city. We had dinner at the hotel as well and enjoyed it. Overall a great little get away for 1 night. We would stay again for sure.

Stayed for three nights in an accessible room,clean & spacious, provided with shower chair and roll in shower, pool has hoists. Staff polite and helpful, particularly the Receptionist who checked us in, good Concierge who gave us lots of help how to get into NYC.Easy to get to Manhattan, used ferry from Paulus Hook a lovely 15 min walk from hotel along waterfront with great views of New York skyline which only took 8 mins to get to World Trade Centre site and wheelchair accessible (doesn't run weekends)Sat took PATH train from Paulus Hook (think there maybe a nearer one to hotel) only costs $2 wheelchair accessible but had to use telephone to ask where elevators were (across way in another building)Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants and bars near hotel.Got this hotel for the same if not cheaper price than some 1/2 star hotels in Manhattan, worth the extra travelling into NYC for a quality hotel in a really nice area.

Room Tip: Request accessible room when booking

I loved this hotel and will definitely stay here the next time I am in New York. When you hear Jersey City you don't think of the best area, but this area of JC is one of the nicest areas in the NYC metro areas. Everything was ultra-modern, clean, and staff was very friendly. Restaurant was a little over priced.

Stayed here for two night back in January. Room was clean and comfortable. Did not get bitten by bugs. Had one King sized bed and a little couch where my 3 yo daughter slept. She loved her little bed. The location is close to PATH station so it is convenient to go into NYC. Parking was expensive though, like $20 a day or something that like. But it is in Jersey City so parking fee is unavoidable.
