The Westin Jersey City Newport
Ranked #2 of 14 Hotels in Jersey City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Lets get one thing clear. This hotel is in Jersey City...and as far as this reviewer is concerned, that makes no difference whatsoever to the tourist looking to experience NYC for the first time, or the tenth time!
LOCATION - With views across the Hudson to the New York City skyline, It rates for me as an A+ location. It is also situated across the road from the PATH rail service, linking you directly to the Big Apple in less than 10 minutes - Or, if you prefer, take the NJ Transit tram, located just up the street from the Westin, to Exchange Place and get the ferry across to the World Trade Centre location, which is home to the 9/11 memorial. At $6 for the ferry, it's a great way to reach the city.
When I think of New York, I always think of the illuminated skyline and at the Westin, you get a cracking view (even some of the normal rooms have views towards the city), both morning and night.
PRICE - Compared to NYC, it's a million miles better value for money!!! We stayed two nights for £175 ($280) per night - We had a luxurious stay, fantastic facilities and courteous, friendly staff - Exactly the type of service you would expect from a quality establishment. Spend that kind of money in the heart of the city and you'll be lucky to get clean sheets!!!! ;)
HOTEL - Westin is part of the Starwood group of hotels, which includes Sheraton amoung others and is synonymous with quality. The Westin Jersey City is no different. The bed size in our hotel room was California King - i.e. really big.
The standard rooms are generously sized, perfect for a couple looking for sprawl and comfort.
The pillows and duvets are fantastic quality and the matresses, at least in my opinion, are the perfect combination of firm and soft.
The hotel staff were all super friendly, as you would expect in the USA (best customer service in the world hands down) - They knew the various crafts, from food service and menus to cocktails, beers and facilities. It's always nice to know you are in capable hands.

Overall, the hotel is spot on. You get luxurious quality at a fraction of the price, a stones throw from the city with the best views in town. And only 20 mins from Newark Liberty Airport.

What better way to start, enjoy and finish your stay in New York city.

Room Tip: No need to pay extra for a room with a view - When you get to check-in, ask nicely if there are any...

Lovely and comfortable rooms - I was upgraded to a suite on the 12th floor which was amazing. The views over the Hudson to Manhattan are fantastic from some rooms (but you get no views from others). The bar was lovely, with a nice atmosphere and great service. The restaurant had a very good menu and a really nice ambience (maybe too noisy for some but I loved it) Overall, great hotel, couldn't fault it & was sorry to leave.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel as part of our tour of Canada and USA east coast cities.
We wanted a good hotel at sensible price for New York city. We therefore asked the N.Y. discussion forum on TA. They advised the Westin on Newport and they were spot on.
It is just across the water from Manhattan so you get great skyline views. It is just 2 stops on the subway from W.T.C. The subway is just a very short walk away. And,the subway is in a nice landscaped area. The road between the hotel and the subway was very quiet and there is a nice large marina. There are also a number of good restaurants near the hotel
The only failure we had was on Saturday night a local bar/restaurant in the side street next to the hotel was playing loud music until 2.15 am. When I complained they apologised and the hotel called
the police
I would have no problelm comprehending this hotel to any one

Great location and infinitely better value than staying in Manhattan. The rooms are spacious, clean and well presented, although the service at breakfast should have been better. The Starwoods reward card got me into a 21st floor room which had a great view towards the island.

One of the additional up sides... some autographs and pictures with the SF 49ers who happened to be staying there overnight. A great bunch of guys who were happy to stick it to the NY (Jets) sack exchange 34-0!

I certainly will be back with the wife and kids. I feel that this is a hotel chain going places... and not resting on the laurels of past performance (as I've experienced in other international hotels).

Great location. Just a short walk to the PATH station and a short ride to Manhattan. Stayed here with my mom and sisters for a girls weekend. It was a nice break from the busy streets of Times Square. Great beds...slept like a rock. We loved the coffee in the room, too.

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.
