“Westin Jersey City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Great hotel. With NY hotel prices so high, this is a great alternative. Steps away from the PATH train to either downtown or midtown NYC. Restaurant in hotel is very good. As with most Westins, great rooms and service. Good choice of restaurants right outside the hotel.

My family and I stayed in the hotel for 1 night. We enjoyed our stayed and it was a great choice for a comfortable stay for our NYC trip. The hotel was only walking distance away from the transit to Manhattan. The only downside of the hotel is the connection between garage and hotel.

I stayed in this hotel last week for 4 nights. The hotel was a short ride from newark airport, however it did cost $50. The hotel is well located, not far from the path station (newport) and a couple of doors from newport mall - which is handy if you have kids and want breakfast or a cheap meal. breakfast in the hotel was very pricey but you can eat in the mall or starbucks across the street.

i recommend a room on a high level and to the front of the hotel then you get a manhatten view - which is never tiresome.

We ate in the restaurant connected to the hotel on the first night and this was affordable and good quality.

The only downside for us was the pool was highly chlorinated and this effected my kids skin.

Would i stay in this hotel again - yes - it was convenient, clean, quiet and well managed.

Room Tip: 17 and above - front of hotel

We have stayed two years in a row. This is such a nice hotel after walking all over NYC. A comfortable, clean place with great beds! We almost tried another hotel nearby - but we were glad we came back.
So close to the PATH- highly recommended.

Just stayed for a week attending a training session/conference. My expectations were beyond met, they were exceeded! As with all Westin properties, they go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience. The location is great (Newport Centre Mall next door, 20 mins away by transit to Manhattan) and the view from my suite was stunning. Hudson River side skyline with the new Freedom Tower shining in the sky! The staff were amazing, the food at our conference was phenomenal and the overall experience was 10/10. If I'm ever in Jersey City again, this is the only hotel I will stay at.

Returned to the Westin JC after being away for 2 months and was instantly recognized and welcomed, room location and preference met, amenity delivered and it feels like a real home from home, even to my morning meet and greet for breakfast on the go. Great location and so near to NYC for evening trips if needed.

Room Tip: Higher floors on the south facing side are overlooked by a residential tower

I have family in Jersey City so this hotel works great: spend all day in NYC, evenings with the fam and return to elegant understated comfort of the Westin. My third stay here.
PROS:
- great location: half a block to the PATH train to NYC. Take the 34th Street to head to Midtown to Macy's, the Garment district, Times Sq. Newport Mall is directly behind the hotel with a reasonable selection of stores and much less busy than the city - not much for high end or unique boutiques. Light rail station directly behind hotel for access to Liberty State Park and others. Reasonable variety of restaurants in walking distance.
- Room 2008 had Westin upscale modern décor, comfy beds, city/river views, reasonably spacious, nice bathroom with good showerhead and some counter space. Good hairdryers at SPG mean I can leave mine at home. Big desk for working and a chaise lounge for reading.
- Quieter than NYC at night (though Jersey City does love its sirens.)
- Staff is cordial and amenable but not overly friendly.
CONS:
- I'm not sure what it was but the room definitely smelled funky when I first coming in (stale at best, body odour at worst). An open window during the day seemed to ameliorate the situation. [Strangely enough, encountered same thing at the Four Points Sheraton Midtown NYC two weeks later. A weird SPG thing??]
- The air conditioning is loud coming on and off. I turned it off at night and opened the window.
- There is a light rail train station behind the hotel so you can hear it at times.
